With a week to go until the scheduled Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to interview Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, the liberal media were frantically trying to paint the proceedings as misogynistic Republican men beating up on an innocent victim. Both ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News spent a whole segment during their Tuesday broadcasts stoking those fears.
With the charges of an alleged attempted sexual assault swirling around the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media pounced on the obligatory comparison to the allegations of sexual misconduct against Justice Clarence Thomas by Anita Hill. On NBC Nightly News, correspondent Andrea Mitchell rewrote history and implied that Hill’s claims were credible, hoping the charges would sink the nomination this time around.
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.
Despite his claims that the liberal media doesn’t exist, Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd proved himself again to be a leftist shill during NBC’s Sunday Today as they continued to push a dubious smear of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
In a last-ditch effort to sink the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) sent a letter to the FBI asking them to investigate the candidate for an undisclosed reason. All Feinstein revealed to the public was that she received “new” information from a source she wouldn’t name. Apparently, NBC was the only broadcast network to not apply ‘the smell test’ since they were the only ones to run with it.
CBS News was rocked by yet another high-profile firing on Wednesday after the network gave the boot to long-time 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager. The embattled producer was under scrutiny after claims of sexual misconduct surfaced. The firing came after he sent text messages to a female CBS reporter covering the story threating to end her career at the network.
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.
Just when you thought they couldn’t go any lower or get any dirtier. In the midst of their September 11th broadcast, NBC Nightly News took below the belt shots at President Trump. They juxtaposed the number of deaths in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria with those killed 17 years ago. Then they made it seem as though he was “commemorating” the anniversary of the attack by “pumping his fist”. All while ignoring the son of a 9/11 victim begging Democrats to stop playing games with the event.
The Russia investigation by the Special Counsel took major hits on Monday after a pair of stories came out that called their credibility into question. First came the revelation that federal prosecutors mislead the public on an aspect of alleged Russian agent Maria Butina’s relationship with a GOP operative. The other entailed evidence that fired FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page conspired to leak anti-Trump stories to an eager press.
Veteran journalist Bob Woodward gave the first TV interview for his new book, Fear, to CBS (who owns the publisher). What most in the liberal media will probably take away from his CBS Sunday Morning appearance was that he told viewers to “hope to God we don’t have a crisis” under Trump, and a plea for them to “wake up” to that reality. What will most likely get overlooked was his criticism of The New York Times for publishing of that anonymous op-ed from a supposed senior administration official.
In the midst of a “powerhouse roundtable” discussion during ABC’s This Week about the Bob Woodward book and the anonymous New York Times op-ed on Sunday, Michelle Goldberg, a columnist for the paper, lashed out at Trump administration officials and declared they should be ashamed that they work for President Trump.
On Friday and Saturday, former President Obama was on the campaign trail in blue districts trying to help Democrats take back the House in November by targeting the sitting president. As would be expected, the liberal media trumpeted their president’s return and on Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC co-anchor Dan Harris described him as a genuine political threat to President Trump.
