House Democrats held a raucous hearing on Wednesday, where they hosted a radical leftist writer and other supposed luminaries to make the case for the federal government to pay African-Americans reparations as an apology for slavery. Despite the ridiculousness of having the people of today pay the price of something they had no hand in some 150 years ago, the liberal broadcast networks seemed all for it during their evening newscasts.
As President Trump began his state visit to the United Kingdom on Monday, all three network morning shows made sure to emphasize protests against his visit and were particularly excited by the return of a giant balloon depicting the President as a baby. The coverage echoed media reporting from Trump’s last visit to London in 2018, when the networks hyped how he was given a “not-so-royal welcome” by left-wing demonstrators.
After Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave his final word on the completed Mueller report Wednesday morning, all three networks broke in with live coverage demanding that it was now Democrats' chance to impeach Trump. ABC was the most heavy-handed in their coverage, with anchor George Stephanopoulos bringing up the impeachment topic at least eight times in a thirteen minute segment.
John Walker Lindh, “The American Taliban” was released from prison three years early for “good behavior” Thursday, despite evidence that he still clung to his jihadist ways. When news of his imminent release broke earlier in the week, the liberal media rightly condemned it. But a peek into the Media Research Center’s vast archives showed that the media was overly concerned for his well-being at the hands of the George W. Bush administration.
ABC senior national correspondent Terry Moran was feeling sassy about the pro-lifers on Twitter on Saturday. Inspired by political analysis from the men's fashion magazine GQ, which argued "The 'pro-life' states are not pro-life states," Moran slammed Alabama, Georgia, and Missouri.
With a video trying to tie President Trump to white supremacists, former Vice President Joe Biden threw his hat into the 2020 ring Thursday. That video won him the praise of the liberal media as both CBS and NBC kicked off their evening news broadcasts with his announcement. Each of the Big Three networks boasted about the video while downplaying his inappropriate touching scandals.
As far as the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks are concerned, Joe Biden’s troubles with touching women are essentially over. At least that’s the impression left when you look at the tiny (1 minutes, 52 seconds) amount of time devoted to the former Vice President’s grabbiness in their coverage of his campaign’s official launch.
All three networks led Thursday morning with former Vice President Joe Biden’s long-awaited announcement that he would run for president in 2020. ABC’s Good Morning America focused heavily on Biden’s appeal to Democrats’ “patriotism” and “American values,” with correspondent Terry Moran gushing about Biden taking back this “nationalism” message for “progressives.”
Thursday is reportedly when we should expect former Vice President Joe Biden to formally announce his 2020 campaign for president. After fawning for Biden’s many hints for over a month, ABC and CBS were excited during their Tuesday evening broadcasts. Not so much for NBC, who brought up some of Biden’s lowest moments for liberals.
On ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos Sunday, Terry Moran doubled down on a surprising admission he made one month ago on the program, that the Mueller report would be a “reckoning” for the media and Democrats, after they spent so much time hyping it. On Easter Sunday, Moran emphasized again how the “obsession” of using it to impeach Trump was going to backfire spectacularly for the left.
The annoyed journalists at ABC on Thursday reacted to William Barr’s press conference by slamming the “unprecedented” spin from the Attorney General, likening it to a Game of Thrones plot line about cleaning up for a king. The journalists at ABC on reacted by repeatedly deriding the press conference previewing the release of the Mueller Report as “unprecedented.” Terry Moran reminded that, just because Donald Trump may not have done anything illegal, there’s still probably something bad in the report: “This is the day, that the conversation shifts though, as I said, from was this criminal to was it right? There's a big difference between what's lawful and what's right.”
On Monday, all three network morning shows reveled in Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announcing her resignation with relieved reporting about her “tumultuous tenure” at the department being over and touting Democrats blasting the Trump cabinet official. Correspondents fretted over who would replace Nielsen as they bid her “good riddance.”
