If you thought yesterday morning’s interview with Hillary Clinton on Good Morning America was bad, the network continued its nauseatingly affectionate treatment of Clinton in an extended interview shown on ABC’s streaming channel, ABC Live, Tuesday evening. Correspondent Linsey Davis offered unfettered praise for Clinton in this version, even shamelessly affirming the failed 2016 candidate’s delusions that she actually won the election.
It’s not surprising but since Hulu is releasing a fawning Hillary Clinton documentary this week, the media is ready and willing to give it free press. But not only did ABC give Clinton a platform to discuss the doc on Good Morning America, they also invited the Democrat’s 2016 presidential nominee to do the DNC’s work in bashing Bernie Sanders.
Good Morning America on Monday spun Katie Hill, a California Democrat who resigned in the wake of a bizarre sex scandal, as a victim of bullying. The story by reporter Linsey Davis never mentioned her political affiliation and tried to mislead viewers into believing Hill was smeared.
The Democratic field for the 2020 nomination continued to shrink on Tuesday after self-declared top-tier candidate Senator Kamala Harris (CA) dropped out due to a lack of funds. In response, CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News ran reports mourning the loss of her campaign, with one noting that the upcoming Democratic debate would only consist of white people now. But surprisingly, an ABC report singed Harris on her way out.
On Thursday, it was as if all three network morning shows were reading from the same liberal script as journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS all touted how “impeachment took center stage” during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate. In addition, all three networks eagerly seized on the Democratic contenders labeling President Trump a “criminal.”
The liberal media love to document the fall of political rising stars; particularly those that involve sex scandals and Republicans. One of those prerequisites was not met Thursday evening, when CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News chose not to inform their viewers that Democratic “rising star”, Congresswoman Katie Hill (CA) was facing a Congressional Ethics Committee probe for having an affair with a female staffer. The only broadcast network to mention the scandal that evening was ABC.
On Wednesday, ABC’s Good Morning America hyped an odd highlight from Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, hailing New Jersey Senator Cory Booker for denouncing a question to rival Joe Biden about Hunter Biden’s suspicious foreign business dealings.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows presented an united front while praising 2020 Democratic candidates for “showing a united front against President Trump” during Tuesday night’s presidential debate. Reporters eagerly touted how all 12 contenders on stage supported impeachment and denounced Trump.
The moderators for ABC’s Thursday night Democratic debate include a former Bill Clinton campaign staffer and an anchor who was actually kicked out of a Donald Trump campaign event. So it’s safe to say ABC’s Democratic debate hosts won’t be asking any tough questions of the candidates – at least none from the right. The following are just a few examples of Thursday night’s debate moderators’ history of liberalism as culled from the MRC’s archives.
During an interview with failed 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, ABC reporter Linsey Davis tossed a series of softball questions at the Democratic media darling. Davis completely indulged Abrams’s conspiracy theories about voter suppression, failed to push back on her claim that “we won,” and teed her up to call President Trump a racist.
On Friday, unsealed court documents named former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and former Clinton cabinet official and ex-New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson as among those who allegedly had sex with an underage victim of Jeffrey Epstein. But while all three evening news broadcasts covered the case, one thing was missing: any hint that those two men are Democrats.
In a special NBC News investigation aired Thursday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt and chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel explained how Russia aimed to “spread racial tensions in America. It comes from new research showing Russians are behind the push to spread some of the most shocking viral videos.” But the kicker? Some of those same viral videos were proliferated by NBC News themselves.
