On Thursday, the broadcast networks kept up their crusade to push Facebook into censoring political speech by celebrating Twitter’s move to ban all political ads from its social media platform. The reporters on NBC, ABC, and CBS weren’t alone in their joy, touting how “Democrats largely praised” the move as well.
On Wednesday, both NBC’s 3rd Hour Today show and CBS This Morning engaged in climate change hysteria as they touted dire predictions that huge portions of land around the world would be underwater by 2050 and displace hundreds of millions of people. The network hosts all blindly accepted the warnings as true without pointing out that such wild claims have been made for decades without coming to fruition.
The same liberal media that were appalled by chants of “lock her up” against Hillary Clinton and treated any protest of President Obama like a Klan rally, applauded crowds of bitter liberals chanting “lock him up” during President Trump’s recent public appearances. During both their morning and evening newscasts on Monday, CBS News and NBC News touted crowds that shared their sentiment.
During a panel discussion about the 2020 campaign on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, hosts and political analysts agreed that Hunter Biden’s interview with ABC News wasn’t doing his father’s presidential candidacy any favors and might even give President Trump more ammunition against Joe Biden.
While failing CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell suggested the NBA was in a “free speech dispute with China,” the facts of the matter showed the league was perfectly fine with cracking down on free speech targeting the murderous communist state. In back to back nights, the NBA ejected peaceful advocates for democracy and freedom in Hong Kong from games here in the U.S. Despite the NBA doing the bidding of the communists, the liberal broadcast networks blacked it out from their flagship morning and evening newscasts on Wednesday and Thursday.
The hosts of CBS's This Morning gushed over Tina Tchen on Monday without even the slightest mention of what she is best known for. It was the elephant in the room that causes one to wonder if Tchen's appearance on This Morning was contingent on the hosts not mentioning the Jussie Smollett case.
Who better than former Obama/Biden official Susan Rice to talk about Joe Biden’s dealings with Ukraine and the identify of an anonymous whistleblower? (Rice in 2017 came under fire for requesting identities of dozens of people connected to Donald Trump.) Apparently, that’s exactly who the journalists at CBS This Morning wanted for an interview.
After NBC Nightly News was the only evening newscast on Wednesday to even acknowledge that the CIA whistleblower consulted with a staffer for House Democrat Adam Schiff before filing a formal complaint with the Intelligence Community Inspector General, on Thursday, NBC’s Today show and CBS This Morning worked to downplay the bombshell revelation. Meanwhile, ABC’s Good Morning America maintained the network’s silence.
Jay Sekulow, Donald Trump’s lawyer, sparred with CBS This Morning co-host Tony Dokoupil on Friday, offering a feisty response and forcing the network to actually hear about Adam Schiff’s fake transcript from the Ukraine hearing. As the Media Research Center’s Nick Fondacaro noted on Thursday, CBS and the other networks skipped the fabricated transcript read by the California Democrat.
CBS, as well as the other two networks, routinely push gun control policies over gun rights by a large margin. So it was a welcome surprise to see the hosts of CBS This Morning on Wednesday actually quiz New Zealand’s Prime Minister over the morality and effectiveness of her newly enacted policies.
CBS This Morning co-host Tony Dokoupil on Wednesday just came out and endorsed 2020 Democrat Andrew Yang’s plan to just simply give away cash money, should he be elected president. Dokoupil called the scheme a “good policy” as co-host Anthony Mason gushed that “it’s pretty attractive.” Where the money would come from and how much it would cost wasn’t discussed.
All three networks couldn’t stop gushing over pop star Taylor Swift’s liberal awakening on full display at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards. While accepting an award, the singer called on the White House to respond to a Change.org petition to pass the “equality act” a federal level law banning “discrimination” against transgender and gay people. ABC, NBC and CBS gave Swift the royalty treatment, praising her “powerful” and “intelligent” speech and “transformation” embracing the left.
