Rapper Kanye West and Hall of Fame football star Jim Brown met with President Trump on Thursday to discuss criminal justice reform and to convince him that stop and frisk was a terrible policy. Kayne being Kayne, he stole the spotlight as he told the President, among other things, how much he appreciated him. Of course, during their evening programs, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) put a hyper-focus on Kayne and all but ignored why they were there.
As the White House prepared to send the completed FBI background investigation into allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to the Senate on Thursday, NBC’s Today show went to work trying to preemptively discredit the findings. The coverage of the Bureau’s finished inquiry focused almost entirely on Democrats complaining that it “did not go far enough.”
Broadcast news networks ABC, CBS, and NBC continue to hammer away at the sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Monday, using the seventh FBI inquiry into Kavanaugh’s past as the latest news hook to keep the Supreme Court nominee’s name in the headlines.
President Trump’s late Monday morning press conference was originally to discuss the new trade agreement between Canada, Mexico, and the United States (USMCA), but many in the liberal media on hand dismissed its significance in favor of destroying Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. And thus the event quickly devolved into a fight over the FBI investigation concerning Kavanaugh because, for the media, that’s the only story worth talking about on TV to any significance.
Journalistic standards and ethics no longer exist. That has become painfully obvious as the Kavanaugh confirmation process has dragged on. Wednesday saw a third outlandish accusation (a fourth and fifth by nightfall) that the liberal media pounced on with a blatant disregard for the facts and no curiosity for the truth. During their evening newscasts, the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) threw objectivity in the trash as they smelled blood in the water. Buckle up.
Sadly, since coming forward with accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and her family have received numerous death threats. During that time, Kavanaugh and his family have also received horrific treatment. Despite the seriousness all around, ABC’s World News Tonight sided with Ford on Thursday by choosing to only report the threats to her and threw those against Kavanaugh in the trash.
On Saturday morning, CBS and NBC both ran predictable reports arguing that human activity is causing global warming, which is causing hurricanes like Florence to be worse, while those who are skeptical are derided as "climate change deniers." By contrast, global warming skeptic Joe Bastardi appeared on both Friday's Fox News at Night and Thursday's Hannity show on FNC. He argued that, while it is true that climate has always undergone change, past hurricane seasons have actually been worse than those in recent decades, as he doubted that humans are making a significant impact on the climate.
In a last-ditch effort to sink the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) sent a letter to the FBI asking them to investigate the candidate for an undisclosed reason. All Feinstein revealed to the public was that she received “new” information from a source she wouldn’t name. Apparently, NBC was the only broadcast network to not apply ‘the smell test’ since they were the only ones to run with it.
Monday's Today show displayed the latest example of how the journalistic definition of "controversy" is when liberal activists are offended. In the aftermath of singing legend Aretha Franklin's funeral. the Today show aired a full report highlighting complaints against two of the event's pastors that came from the left, but the show still ignored the more offensive on-stage presence of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
First Lady Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs took the oath to become U.S. citizens on Thursday but NBC Nightly News was not having it. The broadcast network speculated that they received special treatment in the process and possibly used chain migration, a program the President opposes, even though the process still exists and still legal.
They either know they’re pushing a false claim or they need to get their heads checked. On Monday evening, the liberal broadcast networks of ABC and NBC continued their fake news campaign by pushing a false claim that President Trump only recently admitted the infamous Trump Tower meeting was for opposition research, when, in fact, he admitted it over a year ago.
Talk about grasping at straws! The big three morning shows went wild this morning hyping a supposedly new claim President Trump made about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting. On Twitter, Trump admitted that the meeting was aimed at gathering opposition research on Hillary Clinton. Old news right? Well the morning shows didn’t seem to think so, and ludicrously reported that this was a “stunning” reversal of everything the Trump campaign had said up to this point.
