The broadcast networks once again showed that they relied heavily on Democratic leaks and talking points to build out their impeachment coverage. During their Tuesday evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC touted the testimony of National Security Council staffer Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman as a “bombshell” and “damning” for President Trump. But the testimony was delivered behind-closed-doors to a Democratic-led investigation committee.
The same liberal media that were appalled by chants of “lock her up” against Hillary Clinton and treated any protest of President Obama like a Klan rally, applauded crowds of bitter liberals chanting “lock him up” during President Trump’s recent public appearances. During both their morning and evening newscasts on Monday, CBS News and NBC News touted crowds that shared their sentiment.
Joe Biden has finally granted a TV interview -- to Norah O'Donnell on 60 Minutes. But O'Donnell granted a fairly typical CBS interview offering typical anti-Trump softballs that didn't clarify President Trump's charges against Biden and his son Hunter, but confused them further.
In an attempt to force House Democrats to hold public hearings for their impeachment investigation, Republican members staged a sit-in in the hearing room and delayed the process for five hours. But the “journalists” in the liberal media were appalled by the idea of transparency for Democrats. ABC, CBS, and NBC attacked and smeared the GOP lawmakers during their Wednesday evening newscasts.
It’s been a long time since the executives at CBS News have had something to cheer about in the ratings, and that trend continues despite the replacement of the previous Evening News anchor Jeff Glor with female host Norah O’Donnell. In addition, the network is paying O’Donnell at least $7 million per year, much more than the $2 million Glor received during the 18 months he sat in the anchor chair.
With House impeachment investigators questioning U.S. diplomat to Ukraine Bill Taylor behind closed doors on Tuesday, it meant the liberal media were more than happy to get all their reporting material via selective leaks from the Democratic side. During their evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC blasted viewers with the Democratic narrative that the testimony was “the most damaging testimony to date” and that President Trump’s defenses “crumbled” in its wake.
With U.S. troop convoys making their way back into Iraq, the Monday evening newscasts of CBS and NBC showed off images of troop carriers being assailed by Kurds who were lobbing “potatoes and other objects” at them as they drove by. NBC, in particular, was vicious enough to highlight a sign trying to shame U.S. troops and blame them for the deaths of children.
Any rational person who listened to Hillary Clinton’s recent suggestion that Congresswoman and combat veteran Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was a Russian plant in the 2020 election understood it to be the ramblings of a person unglued. But on Friday, CBS Evening News touted Clinton’s baseless smears by calling them “extraordinary” and “stunning”. But come Sunday, CBS had avoided the topic while ABC and NBC were pumping the brakes and, surprisingly, calling Clinton out.
Elijah Cummings, the late Maryland Democratic congressman who passed away due to health complications Thursday, was the son of sharecrop farmers, became civil rights icon, and served for decades in the House of Representatives. But CBS Evening News boiled his life achievements down to largely what he was doing the last few years of his life: battling President Trump.
Between Sunday night and Monday, the liberal media have been up in arms over a parody video using a scene from the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service to depict a fake President Trump committing violence against members of the news media and other opponents and while it's been thoroughly condemned, many in the liberal press showed little to no concern for parodies or threats of violence against the President himself.
While failing CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell suggested the NBA was in a “free speech dispute with China,” the facts of the matter showed the league was perfectly fine with cracking down on free speech targeting the murderous communist state. In back to back nights, the NBA ejected peaceful advocates for democracy and freedom in Hong Kong from games here in the U.S. Despite the NBA doing the bidding of the communists, the liberal broadcast networks blacked it out from their flagship morning and evening newscasts on Wednesday and Thursday.
During their Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning newscasts, the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seized on a newly released anonymous whistleblower memo that described the reaction of one White House official listening to President Trump’s call with the president of Ukraine. The keywords that elevated their intrigue involved the official calling the call “crazy” and “frightening.”
