On Tuesday’s Good Morning America on ABC, the network celebrated former NBA player Dwyane Wade and his actress wife, Gabrielle Union’s decision to transition their pre-teen son into a girl. Co-anchors George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts hailed the child’s “courage” and “wisdom” while encouraging Wade to share his woke parenting knowledge with less enlightened Americans.
The NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows on Tuesday all excitedly cheered the news that Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos would devote billions of dollars to fighting climate change. The networks also made sure to point out that Bezos was bowing to pressure from left-wing climate activists working at Amazon.
2019 was another year of smashing success for the NewsBusters team as we had umpteen media stories to cover throughout the year, whether it was the Jussie Smollett debacle, the Mueller Report, impeachment, 2020 debates, and more online censorship. While it may seem repetitive, NewsBusters would be nowhere near what its become since its inception in 2005 without the support of beloved readers (and adversaries) who view us as essential reading.
After repeatedly behaving like PR agents for parent company Disney over recent weeks, on Wednesday, the hosts of ABC’s Good Morning America took the corporate shilling to a new level as they applauded Time magazine for naming their “great leader,” Disney CEO Bob Iger, the Business Person of the Year.
The journalists at Good Morning America on Tuesday again sold out the news department in order to shill for Disney and the whims of CEO Bob Iger. The morning show devoted almost five minutes to promoting a glossy new book singing the praises of the corporate behemoth. Dismissing her own program as nothing more than a product no different then co-division Marvel, co-host Robin Roberts cheered, “It is called One Day at Disney and it celebrates the people and the culture that makes all this happen from Walt Disney world to Marvel to GMA.”
ABC’s World News Tonight was the only broadcast network evening newscast to completely ignore the sweeping and bipartisan outrage against the NBA for their kowtow to communist China’s totalitarian censorship policies. That news blackout came after their Good Morning America segment which boosted Chinese outrage at Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey for daring to support pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. Of course, ABC is own by Disney, who routinely submits themselves to China’s censorship.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan couldn’t stop fawning over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hobnobbing with her celebrity friends, on Good Morning America Wednesday. Actress Tracee Ellis Ross was on the show and gushed about how Ocasio-Cortez eases her “deep anxiety and concern” for the country under the current administration.
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday went ballistic, blasting ABC’s Robin Roberts for daring to ask Joe Biden about his unwanted touching. After playing a clip of the Good Morning America interview, Brzezinski raged, “The amount of time that was spent on Biden's hugs — This is a guy who has hugged five to ten million people and they love the fact that he's touchy and huggy and they run to him and five women are uncomfortable with the way they hugged him.”
Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts on Tuesday hit Joe Biden from the left, demanding to know what more the Democrat could have done to defend Anita Hill in her attacks on Clarence Thomas in 1991. Though Roberts asked some tough questions, she also offered softballs, such as wondering if the presidential candidate has a motto.
We’ve come to expect former Obama officials getting off easy when they appear on the morning shows. However, sometimes the complete lack of any sort of impartial standard really is shocking. That was the case Tuesday when former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett came on ABC’s Good Morning America to promote her new memoir called "Finding My Voice." The Democrat operative received the star treatment from the hosts, who couldn’t stop gushing about her friendship with the Obamas and her positive “light,” while inviting her to tear into President Trump and Republicans as evil.
On Monday, The New York Post’s Page Six reported that ABC’s Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts complained to The Cut magazine that her homosexuality created a “no win situation” [sic] for her ridiculous softball interview with Empire actor and accused hoaxer Jussie Smollett.
Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts, the woman who refused to say the word “alleged” when interviewing Jussie Smollett, has suddenly discovered that there were “a lot of red flags” in the hate crimes case, now widely dismissed as a hoax. Roberts got a do-over as she interviewed Chicago’s superintendent of police, Eddie Johnson.
