On Wednesday, ABC’s hit reality dancing competition show Dancing With the Stars (DWTS) announced that former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer will be cast for their 28th season and the left went crazy, reportedly making #BoycottDWTS trend on Twitter for a time and excoriating ABC for the decision.
On Sunday morning, MSNBC legal analyst and former Obama-era U.S Attorney Joyce Vance offered quite the whopper that, if she were at Fox News, the CNN Media team would be tut-tutting for days on end. Instead, Vance’s false claim that the Fox News Channel would not be airing Wednesday’s House hearings featuring former Special Counsel Robert Mueller drew thousands of retweets. And in her two MSNBC hits since the tweet totaling 18 minutes and eight seconds, none of the hosts or other panelists thought to call her out.
Anti-Trump California billionaire Tom Steyer leads the Need to Impeach “movement,” and Next Gen America political group. ABC wasn’t honest enough to make that clear for readers on June 1.
Instead, the network misled them by making it sound like two grassroots organizations were promoting the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Nevermind that the same billionaire donor is behind both groups and is spending millions to make impeachment a reality.
June is officially “LGBTQ Pride Month”, and the media, Hollywood, and big corporations are loud and proud about it. However, not everyone is celebrating. On Saturday, Rhode Island Bishop Thomas Tobin tweeted a warning to Catholics that the LGBTQ “Pride Month” “encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals,” urging Catholics to avoid supporting such events.
Trans people are angry, and this time it’s not with biology. Popular millenial social media app Snapchat has found itself in a bit of hot water over its recent photo filter updates that allow users to change their gender appearance in a frame for giggles. However some earnest trans individuals don’t find it funny at all.
Unofficially, Hollywood seems to have chosen its candidate. And while that may be an an ambitious claim at this stage in the 2020 race, it only reflects the insane amount of support Hollywood bigwigs are showing to Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana. ABC news ran a story on how just starstruck celebs and heavyweight producers are with Buttigieg, claiming he’s everything they’ve ever dreamed of — the “unicorn candidate.”
Cracks have formed this week in the effort to derail the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. As accuser Christine Blasey Ford has wavered over whether she would actually show up in Washington to discuss sex abuse claims, outlets like MSNBC have declared the judge will have a “big old blemish” either way. But veteran ABC journalist Cokie Roberts went in the opposite direction. In a Semptember 20 column for ABCNews.com, Roberts bluntly insisted:
In contrast to CNN's weasel attempt on Tuesday to absolve themselves of their increasingly-dubious Trump Tower story, CBS updated their own CBSNews.com post and NBC’s Hallie Jackson wrote a piece explaining the change at NBCNews.com. For ABCNews.com, they did next to nothing by instead relying on an Associated Press wire story about Davis’s flip-flopping. However, none acknowledged on-air the changes despite 39 minutes 23 seconds of coverage one their morning and evening newscasts from July 27-31.
If hell had a sound, it would be like listening to the women on the View — and Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti — talking about sex.
A one-sided Wednesday report at CBS News tried to convince readers that University of Tennessee-Chattanooga student Brenna Spencer's "I don't take normal graduation photos" tweet picturing her with a firearm generated significant "backlash." To create a false impression, the network cited critical tweets from two users with a combined eight Twitter followers, ignoring far more significant support Spencer received, including two Second Amendment-supporting women with a combined 160,000 followers.
On January 31, Nashville's Mayor Megan Barry announced that she had ended an extramarital affair with city policeman and bodyguard Rob Forrest. Since then, except for the Associated Press, the national media showed little interest in covering a whirlwind of subsequent troubling revelations. Even last week's call by the left-leaning Nashville Tennessean for Barry's resignation has been virtually ignored. During that time, the AP failed to tag Barry, who resigned on Tuesday, as a Democrat in 9 of 10 stories.
