If the networks can spend nearly a half hour on the birth of one baby, why can’t they spare one second for a dying toddler? Duchess of Cambridge Catherine (Kate) Middleton gave birth to her third child with Prince William on April 23. News programming on ABC, CBS and NBC devoted more than 28 minutes to the joyous news. That’s wonderful. What wasn’t so wonderful was that the very same programs ignored another U.K. baby as a hospital removed life support against his parents’ wishes.
Liberals were very upset when Republican rallies would break out into cries of "Lock her up!" about Hillary Clinton. But they cheer and applaud when the target of the "going to jail" remarks is Donald Trump, Jr. On ABC's The View on Tuesday, Joy Behar suggested the president's older son will end up "in jail. Hurry up girls, the feds are gonna get him!" The topic was a gossipy interview Trump's first wife Ivana gave to the New York Post.
Tim Goodman, chief TV critic at the Hollywood Reporter, intensely despises President Donald Trump, the TV industry's alleged failure to go after Trump(!), and especially the Roseanne reboot. In September, he claimed that television programming hadn't "caught up" with anti-Trump outrage — which even then was out of sync with the experiences of regular TV watchers. Monday, while slamming Roseanne and its viewers, he despaired that such programming will ever appear — and then decided it wouldn't matter anyway.
On ABC’s The View on Monday, they brought up Kellyanne Conway’s Sunday pushback at CNN’s Dana Bash when she wrapped up the interview by bringing up tweets by Conway’s lawyer husband, George Conway. Bash asked “I just ask you one question that a lot of people are asking me, probably you too. And that is, what is up with your husband's tweets?” Conway shot back that Bash wouldn’t ask this question to a man. Sunny Hostin who used to work at CNN, fiercely defended Bash by saying Conway was "really, really slimy" to question the question.
In the wake of the funeral of Barbara Bush, The View co-host Joy Behar on Monday has decided she likes the political family. They’re so unlike the “con men and thugs” in the White House now. Apparently, Behar has forgotten that she previously smeared various Bush family members as “murderers,” “liars,” connected to Nazis and compared George W. Bush to Islamic terrorists.
In the aftermath of two police officers being ambushed and murdered while eating lunch at a restaurant in Trenton, Florida, last week, Fox News Channel has given substantially more attention to the tragic event than other national news outlets. In fact, various FNC shows have spent almost twice as much time on the story as ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS combined.
In a stunning moment of candor from ABC host George Stephanopoulos during Sunday’s This Week, the longtime Clinton flack lamented the media coverage Hillary Clinton received during the 2016 election. During the “powerhouse roundtable” discussion analyzing the media’s role in 2016 (yes, they’re still hung up on it), he was put off how media equalized Clinton and Donald Trump when it came to their wrongdoings.
For months, the liberal media soothsayers have claimed to be reading the bones and insist they see a “blue wave” coming to wipe out the Republican Party. Their hysteria went to a new level during Sunday’s Good Morning America when the folks at ABC tried to argue that since former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney didn’t win the Utah GOP nomination for Senate via the caucus and had to face a primary, it meant there was trouble brewing for the party.
On the Friday broadcast network evening newscasts, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News played the role of faithful PR representatives for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), giving legitimacy and life to a DNC lawsuit seeking to somehow avenge their 2016 election losses and lay blame on, among others, the Russian government.
After seven seasons, ABC’s Scandal has finally aired its last episode. Over the course of 124 episodes, the Shonda Rhimes-produced series has pretty much covered every aspect of the liberal agenda. However, as the finale proves, there’s always time to squeeze in a little more, especially when it comes to knocking white male privilege and promoting gun control. I guess it’s better to go out with an insufferable bang than with an annoying whimper.
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s retirement went from bad to worse on Thursday as the Bureau’s Inspector General brought his case to federal prosecutors with a criminal referral. McCabe was fired in March after an IG investigation found he had lied to investigators about leaks to the press during the Clinton e-mail investigation. When it came to reporting the damning news that evening, NBC Nightly News ignored revelation all together while ABC and CBS gave it less time than his firing.
