For two days now, the liberal media’s anti-Israel smears have grown wilder and arguably begun to border on something more. The Tuesday evening broadcasts of the major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were no exception as they mourned with the Palestinians on the day they call the “catastrophe,” or the anniversary of Israel’s creation.
Following Monday’s ceremony opening the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, on Tuesday, all three broadcast networks were eager to denigrate the move and blame the United States and Israel for violence in the Gaza Strip that was encouraged by Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. In a series of dramatically one-sided reports, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows offered propaganda instead of news.
All three networks on Monday hyped the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem with varying degrees of worry, but it was CBS This Morning that fretted over the “impotent anger” directed towards Israel and the high unemployment in Gaza. Holly Williams tried to spin the riots and violence as mostly peaceful: “Most of the Palestinians here today are peaceful, but some are attempting to cross the border. They're throwing stones and lighting fires.”
President Trump fulfilled his campaign promise to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal Tuesday, much to the screeching of the liberal media and world leaders. All three of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) began their evening news broadcasts in a tailspin, appalled by the President defying our allies, shattering our credibility as a country, and possibly leading us into a war. They each ran not one but two segments hyperventilating about the pull out. And a common theme was how it was damaging Obama’s legacy.
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.
