On Monday, ABC’s Good Morning America aired an exclusive interview with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and provided the authoritarian regime’s propagandist with a platform to accuse the United States of conducting “economic terrorism” against his country in the form of financial sanctions.
During the Sunday edition of ABC’s This Week program, co-host and ABC's chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz quickly turned from addressing a few serious topics to a big softball question that South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg might consider his run for the presidency a “sexy challenge.”
In a Saturday tweet from Japan, President Trump took a rhetorical swing at former Vice President Joe Biden when he suggested North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un called his 2020 rival “a low IQ individual”. The anti-Trump alarmists over at ABC did the only reasonable thing, to them, and decided that the President had taken the “side” of a “murderous dictator” over one of their presidential candidates.
Despite warnings from the Trump administration about an imminent attack by Iran or its proxies against American allies and forces, and the attack against oil tankers that followed, the liberal media has been claiming the threat from Iran was being overblown by an administration itching for a war. But, during an interview with ABC’s chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz for This Week, former Army General David Petraeus pushed back and dismantled their fear mongering.
The USS Abraham Lincoln was speeding to the Persian Gulf, U.S. military bases in the Middle East were on high alert, then on Wednesday nonemergency staff for the U.S. Embassy in Iraq were ordered to leave because the U.S. had intelligence of an “imminent” Iranian-backed attack. But the liberal media, which often carries water for the regime, was skeptical. ABC News suggested it was “faulty” intel akin to the Iraq War. NBC News claimed it’s a “real test” of President Trump’s credibility.
It seems that in the eyes of NBC News, the evil Iranian regime can do no wrong even as all the evidence points to their involvement in the sabotage (via explosives) of four oil tankers in the Persian Gulf. Despite U.S. warnings over a week ago about such attacks from Iran or its proxies, Monday's NBC Nightly News projected skepticism with anchor Lester Holt calling the explosions “a mysterious so-called sabotage attack”.
On ABC’s This Week Sunday, guest host Martha Raddatz interviewed Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway; specifically focusing on the conclusions of the Mueller report. Raddatz summarized the President’s reaction to the Mueller report for Conway: “the President says there’s total vindication. Complete exoneration. No collusion. No obstruction.” Not surprisingly, Raddatz wanted to skip right over the “no collusion” part and focus on obstruction.
On ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday, Terry Moran doubled down on a surprising admission he made one month ago on the program, that the Mueller report would be a “reckoning” for the media and Democrats, after they spent so much time hyping it. On Easter Sunday, Moran emphasized again how the “obsession” of using it to impeach Trump was going to backfire spectacularly for the left.
There was a stunning admission from ABC senior national correspondent Terry Moran during Sunday’s This Week when he conceded that if Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence of collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign, then there would be a “reckoning for the media” among others who pushed the notion.
Just days after announcing that he was forming an exploratory committee to run against President Trump in the Republican primary, longshot Presidential candidate Bill Weld appears to have at least one passionate supporter in the media: ABC’s Matthew Dowd. Even after his fellow panelists on This Week made compelling arguments explaining why Weld’s candidacy will ultimately not go anywhere, Dowd still described Weld's primary challenge to the President as a “really smart political move” and maintained that Weld “would get 18, 19, 20, 22 percent of the vote” and force President Trump into debates.
Between Saturday evening and Monday morning, NBC, ABC and CBS devoted a stunning 19 minutes 5 seconds to falsely accusing teenagers who participated in the March for Life of racism following a confrontation with left-wing activists. That was after the broadcast networks only managed to provide a pathetic 58 seconds of coverage to Friday’s annual demonstration protesting the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision legalizing abortion.
On ABC's This Week, host Martha Raddatz began the program with Democrat presidential aspirant Kirsten Gillibrand, but never asked her a single question about the Women's March controversies over anti-Semitism, even though she spoke on Saturday at a Women's March event in Des Moines. But Raddatz pressed Sen. Jim Lankford (R-Okla.) to denounce a viral video that alleged to show Catholic teenagers in MAGA hats harassing a Native American man beating a drum...she even blamed this alleged hate crime on Donald Trump's tone against Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
