As NBC Nightly News continued its monotonous drumbeat on Thursday to elevate liberal policy positions ahead of the Democratic debate they were holding, the network gave the megaphone to South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg in order to push for abolishing the Electoral College.
President Trump made more headlines Wednesday night after he told ABC chief anchor George Stephanopoulos that he would be fine with taking “oppo research” on his 2020 opponent from foreign countries. This comment drew criticism. But during their almost two hours and 30 minutes of prime time coverage, or hair-on-fire panic, neither CNN nor MSNBC cared to mention that that’s exactly what the Clinton campaign did in 2016 with the now-infamous dossier.
The third installment of NBC’s so-called “Big Idea” series, which they already admitted was designed to only help Democratic 2020 candidates, featured floundering New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and her bid to implement a national paid family leave program.
As NewsBusters reported Monday night, NBC News has launched a new report series dedicated to promoting the “big ideas” put forward solely by Democratic 2020 candidates ahead of the debates in a few weeks. Tuesday’s edition followed California Senator Kamala Harris as she campaigned in South Carolina to jack up the death tax to pay for an increase in teacher salaries.
With almost a year and a half to go until the 2020 general election, Tuesday’s editions of ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News showed that the media didn’t learn anything from 2016. Nearly two weeks ahead of the first Democratic Party debate, both broadcast networks boasted about former Vice President Joe Biden’s 13-point national lead against President Trump.
To round out their political coverage Monday evening, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt boasted of the network’s new series “My Big Idea”, which they planned to expand on as the 2020 Democratic primary continued. Holt made it very clear that the series was only open to the “big ideas” that were being put forward by the leftist field. “And tonight, we're launching a series with our Harry Smith to let candidates tell you the idea they say separates them from the vast field of contenders. We're calling it ‘My Big Idea’, and first up, Senator Bernie Sanders.”
With absolutely ZERO insight or knowledge of the underlining evidence or investigation, the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee invited disgraced former White House Counsel John Dean to testify on the findings of the Special Counsel Report on Monday. Of course, Dean’s only experience in any related matter had to do with his own obstruction crimes during the Watergate scandal. Both CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News championed Dean’s comparisons between President Trump and former President Richard Nixon, a common show he puts on.
After putting pressure on Mexico with threats of escalating tariffs, President Trump’s hardball negotiation tactics finally got them to cave and take action to stem the flow of migrants looking to break into the U.S. It was a victory for the President the liberal media was forced to concede, much to their chagrin. But during Sunday Today, NBC News tried to downplay the win my suggesting Trump only achieved results that were already coming.
Despite decrying President Trump’s threats to impose escalating tariffs on goods from Mexico, CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News were forced Thursday to admit the tactic appeared to be working as intended. But that didn’t stop them from continuing to whine anyway.
Both ABC and CBS managed to keep the sacredness of the 75th anniversary of D-Day intact Thursday by keeping divisive domestic politics largely out of their flagship evening newscasts that night. But NBC once again proved that they kept little above exploiting every opportunity to go after President Trump and pushing for his removal from office. NBC Nightly News was particularly excited this time because Politico had reported that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was looking to put the President in prison once he left office.
For NBC’s Thursday night report on Joe Biden's support for the Hyde Amendment, they treated it as though some dark secret from Biden’s past was revealed for the first time. “Now to a new uproar over abortion erupting today as Democratic candidates for president take aim at the early front runner, former Vice President Joe Biden amid a revelation about Biden's stance,” anchor Lester Holt announced as the network rushed to get Democrats on the record against the Hyde Amendment.
On the eve of D-Day, President Trump joined Queen Elizabeth and other world leaders on the southern shore of England to mark the beginning of the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy. The Wednesday event was a somber occasion, with Trump reading from President Roosevelt’s prayer fthat he had read aloud to the nation. But NBC Nightly News seemed to grow bored with the seriousness of the event and shifted gears to bashing the President over his a recent controversies.
