The co-hosts of The View on Tuesday leapt to the defense of Hillary Clinton after she was put on the spot by a West Virginia coal mineer. While talking to voters, the individual demanded to know how Clinton can call herself a “friend” of the state after saying, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” View co-host and ABC News journalist Paula Faris spun for Clinton: “This is a classic case, though, of listening to just part of the sound bite though. We do this all the time.” Co-host Sunny Hostin agreed, “We're not being fair. I was just going to say that.”
Melissa Joan Hart, star of God’s Not Dead 2, appeared on Good Morning America, Thursday to argue that tolerance extends to Christians, not just other faiths. Surprisingly, the co-hosts of GMA touted her new movie as “powerful” and a “serious role” for the actress.
Talk about your wacky analysis. The women of The View on Monday weighed in on Michael Bloomberg’s potential third party run for the White House and deemed the former New York Mayor a “fiscal conservative.” This is the same Bloomberg behind the soda tax, the man who endorsed Obama for president and ObamaCare.
On Wednesday, the co-hosts of The View treated director Quentin Tarantino to a softball interview following his anti-cop remarks last month. The hosts happily provided him a platform to play the victim against those who condemned him calling cops “murderers” and to double-down on his attack on the policy.
Monday’s The View featured a segment with Richard Clarke, an ABC News consultant and former Clinton and Bush national security staffer. Clarke iterated that “We are a country of refugees. The people we're allowing in are the victims of terrorism. We shouldn't punish victims of terrorism.” When Paula Faris brought up that Marco Rubio said “you can't do a background check on a lot of these refugees. You just can't call someone up in Syria because it's hard to track them down,” Clarke got personal against Rubio.
On Tuesday, ABC’s The View hosted Republican presidential candidate Senator Lindsey Graham and co-host Paula Faris desperately attempted to get him to smear his fellow Republicans in Congress. After Graham outlined why he refused to drop out of the presidential race despite his low poll numbers, Faris asked “don’t you feel that Republicans are sabotaging their own party right now?”
On Saturday morning, the major broadcast networks were at it again in bashing the “far-right” and “unruly hardliners” in the House Republican caucus for causing Speaker John Boehner’s impending resignation announced Friday that CBS added could hurt the party’s chances in 2016 if the “infighting” continues.
On Sunday, amidst the network coverage of the universal condemnation surrounding Donald Trump’s attack on John McCain’s military service, during an appearance on NBC's Today, Chuck Todd did his best to play up how the GOP was “desperate for this moment” when they could call out the Republican presidential candidate.
CBS and NBC on Thursday skipped the revelation that ObamaCare is particularly vulnerable to scams. Only ABC's Good Morning America covered the Government Accountability Office's fraud investigation and the two-hour show only allowed a scant 17 seconds on the topic. GMA news reader Paula Faris quickly revealed that "ObamaCare is facing new scrutiny today on Capitol Hill... after a sting operation revealed just how vulnerable the system is to fraud."
On Friday, ABC, CBS, and NBC's evening newscasts all ignored how the Obama administration issued the latest version of its abortifacient/contraception mandate under ObamaCare, which ignores multiple court rulings against it – including the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling in 2014 – and again tries to force religious non-profits to fund drugs that they consider to be immoral. Instead, the Big Three programs all devoted over a minute and a half each to the ticker tape parade in New York City for the World Cup-winning U.S. national women's soccer team.
On Sunday’s Good Morning America, following a story about two long-lost sisters meeting each other for the first time while attending Columbia University, co-host Paula Faris wound up summarizing pro-life beliefs: “I love that the mom – she’s met one of the daughters – but she said, ‘I'm glad that I chose to give them a chance at life,’ too. Because she was a teen mom.”
