ABC, NBC Chalk Up Shinzo Abe Assassination to ‘Gun Violence’
With CBS Mornings trashing former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as “a polarizing figure” and “nationalist” with “controversial” views just hours after being assassinated, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today were more conciliatory on Friday, remembering him as a “giant” and “popular leader.” However, they sought to tie his killing to mass shootings in the…
Networks BURY: Thwarted Mass Killers Are Illegals
Thanks to a hero tipster, two men with hundreds of rounds of ammunition and assault rifles were thwarted from carrying out their slaughter on the Fourth of July. Yet ABC and CBS on Wednesday and Thursday buried one very important fact: They are in America illegally.
ABC Notices Cratering Stocks, Pricey Cookouts...But Absolves Biden
Friday’s Good Morning America had full reports commiserating over the fact that the stock market had its “worst first half of the year” in over 50 years and the cost of a Fourth of July cookout have gone through the roof, but not surprisingly, the always superficial (and factually challenged) network refused to assign blame for either and thus absolved the Biden administration of any…
ABC Deletes Tweet Claiming Jackson 1st Black Supreme Court Justice
On Thursday afternoon, ABC's Good Morning America (GMA) tweeted a video of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson being sworn in to replace the now-retired Stephen Breyer with the obviously false caption claiming "Ketanji Brown Jackson is sworn in as the first Black Supreme Court justice in U.S. history." This despite the fact that not only is she the third black justice…
Nets Spend Nearly 2x Promoting Trump Steering Wheel Tale vs. Denials
With the liberal media all-in on Tuesday’s January 6 Committee hearing featuring former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, it wasn’t a surprise Wednesday morning to see the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC downplay the strong pushback from the Secret Service regarding Hutchinson’s tall tale that President Trump assaulted a Secret Service agent and tried to seize the steering wheel…
As Abortion Radicals Riot, Nets Excuse ‘Mostly Peaceful’ Protests
As pro-abortion radicals rioted and attacked pro-lifers in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade, the network newscasts mostly looked the other way. They offered scant coverage and repeatedly insisted that the last several days have been “mostly” or “largely” peaceful.
Morning Shows: ‘Shockwaves’ and ‘Outrage’ at ‘Activist Conservatives'
The network morning shows sounded the alarm on Saturday, warning of the “shockwaves” and “outrage” at the “newly activist conservative” Supreme Court majority that overturned Roe vs. Wade. On Friday, Moran suddenly discovered the concept of judicial activism, attacking the conservatives as “judges in politicians’ robes.”
For Pride Month, GMA Spins One Couple's Divorce as a Win for Love
Divorce is by a horrible thing, especially for children. Even if it is necessary, it declares that at least one partner failed to uphold their vows. But, for Tuesday’s edition of Good Morning America on ABC, one couple’s divorce was cause for a Pride Month celebration, for allowing one gay man to come “to terms with his identity.”
ABC Decries Compromise Swimming Rule Banning Certain Trans Athletes
Nature scored something of a win after FINA, the international governing body that oversees competitive swimming, ruled that transgendered athletes will be barred from competition unless they transitioned for the age of 12, a.k.a before they hit puberty. It was essentially a compromise ruling that would stop males who had benefitted from puberty from competing unfairly in women’s swimming…
Morning Nets Cover for ‘Frustrated’ Biden Blaming GOP for Poor Economy
On Wednesday morning, ABC, CBS, and NBC chose to do something it’s only occasionally done in mentioning President Biden during their coverage of the porous economy. But, as one would expect, they absolved him of blame and instead commiserated with the “frustrated” President as he’s “[felt] the heat” from voters while “pointing fingers at” Republicans and “tout[ing] his economic agenda.”
ABC, NBC Ignore HISTORIC GOP Win in Texas; Hispanic Nets Barely Cover
On Tuesday night, history was made in southeast Texas as Republican Mayra Flores won a special election in Texas’s 34th Congressional District, becoming the first Mexican-born woman to be elected to Congress and did so by winning a district President Biden won by 13 points in 2020. But not surprisingly, it fetched scant attention Wednesday morning on the English and Spanish broadcast…
Column: The Effects of Gay Pride and 'Allyship' on Journalism
It’s June, so we receive relentless messaging about the importance of “Pride” for the LGBTQIA community. One prominent vehicle was the cover of the “Pride Issue” of People magazine dated June 20, featuring “Robin Roberts In Her Own Words: Love, Faith, & Breaking Barriers.”
ABC's Preposterously Vague Interview with Hunter Biden's Ex-Wife
ABC’s Good Morning America put Hunter Biden into the news – a rare event – with an interview with his ex-wife Kathleen Buhle, who has a new memoir out on their turbulent life together. There were a lot of rounded edges and euphemisms.
ABC Trumpets ‘Powerful’ January 6 Hearing as Liz Cheney’s ‘Moment’
Following months of build-up and a plethora of coverage (seven minutes and 56 seconds) previewing Thursday’s primetime hearing of the House Select Committee on January 6, ABC’s Good Morning America went all-out on Friday with nearly 12 minutes (11:55) hyping the “powerful,” “high-stakes, primetime hearing” detailing the “carnage at the Capitol” that included Congresswoman Liz Cheney (…
