ABC’s 20/20 special on Michelle Obama Sunday night was about what you’d expect from the same network who hailed the “transcendent, communal joy” and “dancing in the streets” after Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008.

Caitlyn Jenner might be a Republican, but the transgender icon is certainly moving leftward on the political spectrum.

FLASHBACK: In 2000, ABC Aired Undercover Report on Fetal Organ Trade

August 6th, 2015 2:21 PM

May 28th, 2015 3:25 PM
In a surprising segment, ABC’s 20/20 highlighted several cases of freeloading by people looking to fraudulently claim disability.

May 2nd, 2015 8:00 AM
The last year or so could be described as The Year of Transgender Propaganda. The Hollywood and news-media push on the latest frontier of  “gender fluidity” demonstrates the libertine left’s absolute arrogance that the LGBT revolution is an unstoppable juggernaut.

Captain Obvious: ABC Warns Americans Not to Hide Rifles at Playgrounds

February 3rd, 2014 4:40 PM
 The journalists at ABC News offered yet another high profile experiment to terrify the parents of America into not owning guns.
