According to a recent Southern California University study, the amount of women speaking roles on television has actually declined. What?! In today’s progressive society? This is quite shameful, America. And as you well know, Hollywood lefties are going to turn around and blame you for it instead of pointing fingers at the industry giving them a platform.
Responding Monday morning to the sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh with predictable hypocrisy, the liberal ladies on ABC’s The View applauded Democrats for finally “play[ing] hardball,” deemed Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s claims to be “very credible,” and defended Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) for not going public sooner with the letter.
It’s not as if we haven’t seen this before. Twenty-seven years ago, a last-minute accusation of sexual harassment prompted the Senate to re-open Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas’s confirmation hearings; the ‘he-said, she-said’ confrontation was a media spectacle, including prime-time coverage on the broadcast networks. When it was over, the Media Research Center analyzed the coverage, and found journalists criticized Republicans for being too harsh on Anita Hill, while criticizing Democrats for being too soft on Thomas.
While all three network morning shows on Monday reported on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh being accused of sexual assault as a teenager in the 1980s and conducted interviews with the accuser’s lawyer, only NBC pointed out that both the woman leveling the allegation and her attorney were Democratic Party activists.
The co-hosts of The View on Monday hammered Supreme nominee Brett Kavanaugh and took very seriously the sexual assault claims against the conservative. Co-host Joy Behar deemed them “credible” and called for the nomination to be delayed. On a day like this, it’s important to remember that these women are hypocrites who have a double standard when it comes to sex accusations. If it’s a liberal politician like Bill Clinton or Hollywood director Roman Polanski, they don’t seem to care.
An MRC study of all ABC, CBS and NBC evening news coverage of the President this year finds reporters used highly-charged words to paint him as unhinged or out-of-control. Viewers heard Trump variously described as “furious” (17 times), “fuming” (14), “outraged” (8), “venting” (5), “infuriated” (5), “livid” (3), “enraged” (3), “seething” (2), or just plain-old “angry” (23). The President was also “on the warpath,” “volcanic,” “unglued,” “spoiling for a fight” and even “went ballistic,” according to reporters at various times this year.
In the midst of interviewing government officials responsible for coordinating the federal response to Hurricane Florence, all three broadcast Sunday shows harangued those relief workers with questions about President Trump’s recent comments about Hurricane Maria.
Rosie O’Donnell is a radical leftist and 9/11 truther conspiracy nut. But for some reason, ABC TWICE made her a co-host of The View. We just observed the 17th anniversary of 9/11 and it’s important to remember this quote from O’Donnell on September 12, 2006: “Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America.” On September 10, 2006, the late Andy Rooney, then a 60 Minutes journalist blamed the U.S. for the 9/11 attack: “It might be better if we figured out how to behave as a nation in a way that wouldn’t make so many people in the world want to kill us.
Media personalities and journalists decry over-the-top comments from Donald Trump, but they tolerate them from liberals like director Michael Moore. Moore appeared on The View, Friday and dramatically warned that the United States might not make it to 2020. He declared Trump the “last president” of the United States. ABC donated 16 minutes and 5 seconds to the filmmaker.
Liberal View co-host Joy Behar stepped in it again on Wednesday. Ranting about Donald Trump, she lamented that “God forbid” the “sociopath” might “live another 20 years.” The comment was cringe-worthy enough that Behar backtracked after a commercial break, exclaiming, “I didn’t mean that, what I said.”
Nightline host Dan Harris on Tuesday night pushed the “legendary” Bob Woodward to declare Donald Trump unfit for office, hyping his new book Fear. In the segment, Woodward decried the “war on truth” from the White House. This prompted the ABC anchor to push Woodward for even more. He wondered: “The truth, [Woodward] says, contained in what he hopes will be a historical document that allows Americans of all stripes to come to informed conclusions. In your view, is President Trump fit for office?”
Republican Congressional candidate Rudy Peters, who’s running against Democratic incumbent Eric Swalwell in California, was attacked by an assailant wielding a “switchblade” while campaigning at the Castro Valley Falls Festival on Sunday. The news of the attack reached national attention Tuesday afternoon yet none of the major network broadcasters (ABC, CBS, and NBC) thought it was worth mentioning.
