After Friday’s Good Morning America ignored the vulgar promise by Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) to “impeach the motherf***er” in reference to the President, World News Tonight arrived on scene and did a boilerplate segment while the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News again covered Tlaib as their morning counterparts did, but CBS decided to level the tired liberal media line about how “Republicans pounced” and NBC dubbed it as having triggered “a barrage of Republican backlash.”
With California Democrat Nancy Pelosi taking up the speaker’s gavel on Thursday, the liberal media was energized and excited to see how she would take down President Trump. During their evening news programming, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) gushed about the day’s ceremony on the floor of the House and boasted about how “historic” it was.
ABC and CBS carried Special Reports Thursday afternoon as Democrats took control in the House of Representatives and neither could contain their excitement for what they were “feel[ing] here in the halls” as “a new era” began, causing “an earthquake in Trump world” and supposedly putting the Senate and White House on the defensive due to the midterm national popular vote.
Just days before Christmas and it appeared the federal government was headed for another shutdown after President Trump changed his mind and demanded funds for border security in the form of “metal slats”. In response, the liberal broadcast networks took out their frustrations on conservatives for getting to the President’s ear. They lashed out Thursday evening, labeling them as “far-right” and describing them like animals.
One key reason it’s so difficult, if not impossible, to ever reverse, or even slightly reduce, an entitlement program is how the news media become advocates for the program. So, as expected, in the wake of the federal district court ruling Friday night declaring ObamaCare unconstitutional, ABC, CBS and NBC all found an example of someone who would be hurt by losing ObamaCare.
Legendary TV personality Oprah Winfrey stumped for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in Georgia on Thursday and the liberal media couldn’t get enough of it. During their evening news programs, the major broadcast networks celebrated her efforts as they gushed about her going door-to-door and surprising voters.
On Thursday, the network morning shows applauded liberal celebrities joining Democratic candidates on the campaign trail days before the midterm elections, cheering on the “surge of star power.” While mentions were made of President Trump and other top Republicans barnstorming the country, reporters were clearly more enamored with Hollywood jumping into the race on behalf of the other side of the aisle.
In an effort to push the issue that Democrats want to talk about in the final days of the midterm campaign, on Wednesday, both NBC’s Today show and CBS This Morning rejected efforts by President Trump to focus on illegal immigration and instead touted health care as the key to Democratic victory on Election Day.
On Thursday night and Friday morning, ABC and NBC newscasts refused to cover not one but two bad stories for liberal media darling and attorney Michael Avenatti as Republican Senator Chuck Grassley (IA) requested the Department of Justice investigate Avenatti and Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick for their behavior during the confirmation fight.
Over the past few weeks, the broadcast networks -- and especially CNN and MSNBC -- have promoted claims by Democrats that thousands of minority voters in Georgia have been discriminated against because at least 53,000 new voter registrations were put on hold as "pending" until mistakes could be corrected. But those same networks have ignored recent revelations about why those applications were put on hold in the first place that discredit claims of racial discrimination.
With the midterm elections just two weeks away, the liberal media have ramped up their efforts to drag their dreamboat, Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke over the finish line in the Texas Senate race. With President Trump’s visit to campaign for Senator Ted Cruz (R) on Monday, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seized on the opportunity boast about Beto’s qualities while downplaying his poor poll numbers.
For all the liberal media’s efforts to claim the Republican Party was trying to scare its base to the polls, they were really working hard to paint the GOP as racist bogeymen. During Thursday’s CBS Evening News, the broadcast network parroted Democratic talking points, asserting the GOP was purging the voter rolls in Georgia of minorities.
