The first Democratic presidential debates are scheduled for NBC and MSNBC on June 26 and 27. The Comcast-owned networks have just announced a team of five moderators for the 20 candidates who are allowed to participate, or one moderator for each four contenders. Let’s review this tilted team of liberal journalists/activists.
In recent years, Georgia has become something of a second home for Hollywood as the state has opened itself up to filmmakers. But ever since the state took a stand to defend the lives of the unborn, the liberal elites on the other side of the country have demanded Georgia bend to their will or face a boycott. The CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News not only hyped the boycott Thursday, but they also touted that their parent companies might join in.
As ABC's World News Tonight aired a story sympathetic to the pro-abortion movement, NBC Nightly News actually devoted 20 seconds to an inspiring story out of San Diego. Fill-in anchor Savannah Guthrie reported on the progress of “what doctors are calling the world’s tiniest surviving baby,” so while NBC deserves credit for running this story, they failed to acknowledge its impact on the abortion debate.
On Thursday, NBC’s Today show was giddy with excitement over the possibility that House Democrats may soon start impeachment proceedings against President Trump in the wake of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Wednesday press conference. While hosts and correspondents repeatedly hyped “mounting pressure” on liberal lawmakers to begin the process, the journalists themselves eagerly joined the pressure campaign.
During a report on Wednesday’s Today show promoting “protests from coast to coast” against pro-life legislation in various states, NBC reporter Stephanie Gosk fretted over such a measure being considered in Louisiana. She noted how “calls from patients have spiked” at a New Orleans abortion clinic and ironically asked a member of the clinic’s staff if a “violent act” had ever occurred at the facility.
In a softball interview with Jill Biden Tuesday morning, wife of former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden, NBC’s Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie worried if President Trump was a “threat to the very essence of this country.” The anchor also fretted that Biden’s husband would be the victim of “nasty” attacks and invited her to label Trump a “bully.”
On Thursday morning, NBC’s Today show cheered former Vice President Joe Biden officially entering the 2020 presidential race and delighted in him taking “direct aim” at President Trump with a nasty campaign video. Correspondent Andrea Mitchell was particularly enthralled, touting the “dramatic” video “using images from the Charlottesville white supremacist march.”
Just as they did during their Special Reports on Thursday after the Mueller report’s release, NBC’s Today turned Friday morning to former Obama official Neal Katyal for legal analysis and touting the possibility President Trump could be criminally charged once he leaves office and that current Attorney General Bill Barr wasn’t acting like the AG for the country but instead just for Trump.
The state of Ohio took a great stride in protecting the life of unborn children Thursday when Governor Mike DeWine signed into law a ban on abortions after a heartbeat was detected from the developing child. But the noble pursuit of protecting children apparently wasn’t something NBC News favored, seeing as they decried the law during Thursday’s Nightly News.
On Wednesday, both NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America promoted congressional Democrats complaining about Attorney General William Barr’s testimony on Capitol Hill regarding the upcoming release of the Mueller report. Little or no attention was given to Republicans as anchors and reporters warned of “Democrats still not happy.”
During her hostile interview with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday’s Today show, co-host Savannah Guthrie worried if Attorney General William Barr was “on the level” when he made the decision not to pursue obstruction of justice charges against President Trump after Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no conclusive evidence to warrant such charges. In a later segment, she even suggested Mueller made a “cop out” move on the issue.
Appearing on NBC’s Today show Monday morning to discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller clearing President Trump of collusion with Russia, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders eviscerated irresponsible liberal media coverage of the investigation and demanded that the press apologize to the President and the American people.
