The network coverage of the Iranian protests has been utterly abysmal. From ignoring them all together to downplaying the murder of protesters, the major news outlets have had to be dragged kicking and screaming to cover the spontaneous uprising. Tuesday was no different with ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News downplaying the size and expansiveness of the demonstrations. CBS Evening News went off the deep end and started openly questioning who was actually killing the protesters.
During special coverage of President Trump’s Friday speech announcing his decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal, the broadcast networks all agreed that the American commander-in-chief was being “hawkish” and “fierce” against the “very moderate” Iranian regime, even declaring that the decision “has isolated the United States.”
Every Single Person We Don’t Like in the Liberal Media eventually won “Quote of the Year” at the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards on Thursday, but it also came away with the Trumpocalypse Award moments earlier in the evening. Once The Federalist's Mollie Heminway declared the winner, conservative writer and former CNN political commentator Jeffrey Lord accepted the award, in jest, on behalf of liberal journalists featured in the Trumpocalypse compilation.
A boisterous crowd of nearly 900 conservatives and guests packed the National Building Museum on Thursday night for the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards. After the audience selected the most outrageous quote in three categories, the crowd singled out Every Single Person We Don’t Like in the Liberal Media for the ultimate “DisHonor” of being the MRC's “Quote of the Year.”
On Monday morning, even rumors about the possibility of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy retiring sent the network morning shows into panic mode. Reporters wrung their hands over the potential that President Trump could replace the high court’s “swing vote” and make it “solidly conservative for decades.”
ABC continued blaming everything but Hillary Clinton for her election loss on Friday’s Good Morning America. Even though it’s been over six months since the election, ABC has continued touting the Democrats’ line that WikiLeaks and Comey caused Trump to win.
After touting President Obama’s endorsement of Emmanuel Macron last week, the networks were back Monday to offer full reports gushing about his election victory. The liberal candidate beat conservative candidate Marine Le Pen by a 2-1 margin, which all three networks characterized as a defeat against “extremism” and the “far right.” NBC’s Richard Engel was so excited about the news, that he actually compared Le Pen’s defeat to the defeat of Nazi Germany.
From questioning Donald Trump’s patriotism and mental stability to griping about the GOP Congress’s “hard-hearted” budget and “drive-by” hit of a health care plan the liberal media have been going through their own version of March Madness this month. The following is a collection of just some the most over-the-top liberal media outbursts from the past month.
Liberal journalists on the three networks, Wednesday, dutifully did the bidding of Democratic senators trying to take down Neil Gorsuch. ABC, CBS and NBC all promoted the partisan effort to “keep [Gorsuch] on the griddle” and force the nominee to prove he’s “not a political pawn.”
NBC didn't bury the story after a commercial break like the other networks, but they did try to paint President Donald Trump’s nominee in a highly negative light, literally. “Gorsuch says he met Mr. Trump when interviewed for the job,” reported justice correspondent Pete Williams on NBC Nightly News. While he was saying that, a dreary black and white clip of Gorsuch shaking Trump’s hand played in slow motion. It looked as though it was a scene out of a TV murder documentary.
Capitol Hill was a hive of activity on Monday. The House Intelligence Committee conducted a hearing with FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers about the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. In the Senate, the Judiciary Committee conducted the first in a series of hearings in the confirmation process of Judge Neil Gorsuch. Both were major events on the hill but the Comey hearing drew the overwhelming majority of the network news attention, leaving one anchor to say it was “overshadowing” Gorsuch.
Following a recent foreign policy dust-up between the White House and Britain over unfounded allegations of spying, the liberal media took it upon themselves to speculate the future of the long standing relationship. And during ABC’s This Week the network’s chief foreign correspondent, Terry Moran mocked the Trump administration and argued that all of Europe was laughing at the expense of the United States.
