Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America on Tuesday to promote her new children’s book, Chelsea Clinton was treated to predictable fawning coverage. However, what made the softball segment particularly galling was the tone-deaf manner in which co-host Robin Roberts teed up the former first daughter to voice support for the #MeToo movement while not bothering to mention Bill Clinton’s treatment of women.
As we’ve seen with CNN’s huffy, virtue-signaling “apple” ad campaign, the media never gets more defensive than when they are called out by the right for their liberal bias. That was apparent on ABC this morning, as the anchors reacted angrily to one conservative commentator’s comments made at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C. Thursday.
As they’ve done all week, ABC’s Good Morning America spent several reports touting the “impressive” and “passionate” teen gun control activists from Parkland, Florida, who met with President Trump yesterday at the White House and who screeched “murderer” at Florida Senator Marco Rubio and the NRA’s Dana Loesch at CNN’s ruckus, scripted “townhall” last night.
While the networks ignore thousands of young people who march on Washington every year to protest the legalized slaughter of innocent children in the womb, they don’t mind spending ample time gushing over young people who protest for liberal causes. They proved that again on Monday, when all three networks proudly touted a much smaller group of teens protesting guns, in wake of last week’s school shooting.
Comedian turned left-wing activist Jimmy Kimmel had his barbs ready for Trump and the GOP on his Thursday evening show, after the horrific school shooting on February 14. As he has done previously on healthcare and guns, Kimmel went on a highly partisan, fake-news-filled rant blaming them for not “acting” when these tragedies occur, even slamming Trump as “mentally ill” for not giving in to the left’s demands for gun control.
Hours after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that former Apprentice contestant-turned-White House staffer, Omarosa Manigault Newman, had resigned, and would be leaving the White House this January, CNN's April Ryan reported that she was actually fired.
On Monday, liberal late-night host Jimmy Kimmel once again used his show to launch nasty attacks against Republicans over the issue of health care. While urging Congress to approve funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (C.H.I.P.), the comedian-turned-activist labeled the effort to pass tax reform “disgusting” and accused the GOP of “putting a tax cut that mostly goes to rich people ahead of the lives of children.”
On Friday, ABC’s Good Morning America touted a new ABC News/Washington Post poll claiming that a majority of Americans oppose the Republican tax plan that was announced on Thursday. The only problem was that the survey was conducted October 29 through November 1, meaning that any questions about tax reform were asked before the GOP actually released the legislative proposal.
ABC journalist and Obama fan Robin Roberts on Monday’s Nightline gushed over a new book of pictures of the Obamas. Co-host Dan Harris deemed the collection of images “picture perfect.” Talking to former White House photographer Amanda Lucidon, Roberts fawned over a picture of the couple snuggling close to each other: “Didn't the President tweet this photo for Valentine's Day?”
One of the strongest reactions to the killing of 59 people and the wounding of more than 500 others attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in the Las Vegas strip on Sunday by gunman Stephen Paddock came from singer-actress Nancy Sinatra, who posted several harsh posts on the Twitter website casting much of the blame on members of the National Rifle Association.
Late night comedy host Jimmy Kimmel opened his show Monday night with a 10-minute-long emotional monologue on the Sunday night massacre in Las Vegas. While the White House called for a day of mourning for the victims of the horrific tragedy, the ABC host called for pointing fingers instead. Kimmel crassly blamed the violence of one lunatic on millions of responsible gun owners, Trump, and Republicans.
It’s already started: CBS’s Jane Pauley rolled out the red carpet for Hillary Clinton, in her first book tour stop promoting What Happened. The CBS Sunday Morning host treated the 2016 loser with kid gloves as she tenderly laid up softball after softball, feeling Hillary’s pain. Of course, this is the kind of book tour treatment Clinton has grown accustomed to, whether she was hawking a book as First Lady, first year Senator or presidential candidate.
