The most embarrassing moment throughout the entire confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh didn’t even involve him directly. In an obvious case of grandstanding Thursday, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker issued hollow threats about released allegedly confidential e-mails from the nominee, which he said could get him expelled from the Senate. Despite being called out for his presidential ambitions, Booker pompously declared it was his “I am Spartacus moment.”
Wednesday’s 12-hour Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh brought with it some substantive discussions for once. Senators peppered the candidate with hypothetical questions about how he would rule in certain situations. Kavanaugh being a studied judicial mind, he avoided giving his opinion because that was how Democrats sunk the nomination of Robert Bork. But ABC correspondent Terry Moran was not having any of it and acted like it wasn’t normal.
Swept up in the excitement of Democrats and left-wing protesters constantly disrupting the first day of Senate hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, on Wednesday, all three network morning shows read from the same script as reporters declared: “Chaos on Capitol Hill.” The hostility was touted as a “coordinated strategy” engineered by “passionate” liberal lawmakers opposed to Kavanaugh.
In a showcase of how much they could act like spoiled children, Senate Democrats (and liberal activists) spent most of Tuesday’s confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh obstructing the process and making a scene. Of course, many in the liberal media cheered on the behavior since they’re all on the same side. And on ABC’s World News Tonight, correspondent Terry Moran praised it as Democrats doing their job.
After ignoring all three estimates of first quarter GDP growth, ABC, CBS and NBC found the second quarter estimate too good to overlook. The Bureau of Economic Analysis announced on July 27, that the economy grew by 4.1 percent in the second quarter, the highest quarterly growth in nearly four years. It was a strong number, but the networks were quick to look for problems with it — especially CBS.
As reported yesterday, the White House is facing backlash after banning CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins from a presser in the Rose Garden yesterday, after she had yelled questions to the President during a pool spray about the leaked Michael Cohen tape. Thursday morning the journalists on ABC’s Good Morning America melted down over the news complaining that this was a “shocking” and “unprecedented” attack against the First Amendment.
At a Wednesday press conference in the White House Rose Garden, President Trump and E.U. Chief Executive Jean-Claude Juncker announced that the two trade partners were moving forward on a plan to end their trade war. Juncker’s presence at the White House illustrated that it was the E.U. that caved under pressure, but the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were having none of it and refused to give Trump the win.
As NewsBusters reported yesterday, ABC was in full panic mode after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced that President Trump was seeking to revoke security clearances of top former Obama officials. Instead of noting that distinction, however, ABC instead decided to call the handful of former Obama officials “some of Trump’s fiercest critics on his approach to Russia.”
Liberal ABC and NBC were in a full-blown meltdown Monday night after the White House announced the President was looking to revoke the security clearances of six former intelligence officials, whom they contend abused the privilege of retaining it after their tenure. They even tried to pretend most of the officials named weren't Obama appointees.
CNN journalists erupted on Monday at the news that Donald Trump is considering revoking the security clearances of ex-CIA Director John Brennan, James Comey and others. After Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the news, Brooke Baldwin proclaimed: “Let's just call it what it was. She threw a grenade in there when it comes to the news that she's now saying the White House is now considering not only revoking the security clearance of the former CIA chief John Brennan but also that of Comey, Clapper, McCabe, and Rice.”
During Monday’s edition of World News Tonight, ABC demonstrated what they really thought of President Trump when they pushed political accusations that he committed an act of treason during his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. And that’s not hyperbole. The on-screen headline ABC ran with stated it definitively: “Critics: Trump’s Press Conference ‘Treasonous’”.
Monday morning, ABC’s Good Morning America bashed President Trump for daring to keep his meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin after 12 Russian intelligence officers were indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Friday, for interfering in the 2016 presidential election. Touting the Democrats’ argument, ABC anchors and reporters slammed Trump for continuing to go ahead with the “dangerous” pre-planned summit that started today in Helsinki, Finland, and complained that the meeting was a failure already.
