It’s time for another NewsBusters Time Machine. A new book about ABC’s long-running show The View features a former producer calling Rosie O’Donnell “medically insane.” This shouldn’t be a revelation if one just watched the show. Twelve years ago this week, on March 29, 2007, ABC gave co-host O’Donnell a platform to promote her unhinged 9/11 conspiracy theories. In a heated discussion about the Middle East, token conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck pressed O’Donnell: “Do you believe that the government had anything to do with the attack of 9/11? Do you believe in a conspiracy in terms of the attack of 9/11?”
On Friday, reporters for ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning were unable to conceal their disgust over President Trump taking a “profane victory lap” during a Thursday night rally in Michigan, following the results of the Mueller report. The coverage was dripping with contempt as the correspondents whined about the event, fearing “vengeance in the air” among Trump and his supporters.
The folks at ABC News were either desperately in the tank for the Democrats or they needed to get fitted for tin foil hats Thursday evening. Instead of reporting on the growing calls for House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) to resign his post, as CBS and NBC did, ABC’s World News Tonight carried water for Democrat conspiracy theories suggesting Attorney General William Barr was hiding the truth about collusion and did something improper when clearing the President of obstruction.
Now that the late night hosts have been denied collusion in the Mueller Report, CBS’s Stephen Colbert and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel freaked out that Americans will “die” as a new ObamaCare repeal effort could destroy the country. On Wednesday, Kimmel sneered, “Trump unleashed another attack on ObamaCare to make sure no one ever gets help from anyone ever again.”
A melting glacier in Greenland has reversed course, adding ice mass and shocking scientists. But since it’s supposed to be part of global warming, it’s “bad news” even when the glacier added ice.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos went before Congress recently to defend the administration’s proposed almost $18 million cut to the Special Olympics, a private organization. Despite the fact that federal funding only made up a fraction of the Special Olympics’ budget, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had total meltdowns during their evening programs.
Eager to find a new way to boost Democrats after Robert Mueller’s report did not find President Trump guilty of Russian collusion, on Wednesday, all three network morning shows celebrated the administration’s legal opposition to ObamaCare as a “winning issue” and “political gift” for liberal lawmakers.
With the dark cloud over his administration finally lifting, President Trump shifted focus to fixing America’s health care system Tuesday. But since it involved getting rid of the disastrous ObamaCare law, the liberal media were preparing themselves for battle. Perhaps it was because they lost big on their collusion conspiracy bet but ABC’s and NBC’s attacks against Trump seemed extra vicious during their evening broadcasts.
Americans who expected any sort of real humility from the late night hosts in the wake of the Mueller report clearing Donald Trump were in for disappointment on Monday. Instead, the liberal comedians lashed out in disappointment and anger. Late Show host Stephen Colbert spat, “This weekend, we got some troubling news. Our president is not a Russian asset. Now, it just feels strange to say. Now, I say ‘troubling news’ because if Trump isn't working with the Russians, then what the hell is wrong with him?”
In the wake of the announcement on Sunday that Robert Mueller “did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia,” many in the news media are visibly upset with the Special Counsel for not being more aggressively anti-Trump. On Monday’s New Day, for example, CNN legal analyst Laura Coates exclaimed that it was “really atrocious” that Mueller refused to make a legal conclusion about whether the President had committed obstruction of justice, while over on NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie fretted: “Is that a cop out? Isn’t this his job?”
In an attempt by network journalists to console themselves and their liberal viewers over Special Counsel Robert Mueller clearing President Trump of Russian collusion, on Monday, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows eagerly listed “scores” of other investigations Democrats were pursuing against the President, promising that Trump’s “legal problems continue.”
There’s no two ways about it: Robert Mueller is a heartbreaker. He led the Democrats, the media and Hollywood on for two years, loving them and leaving them with “No Collusion.” To Hollywood lefties, there’s nothing for it but sobbing into a pint of Haagen-Daaz. Hopefully, it’s Chocolate Chip Crow flavored.
