CBS’s Madam Secretary would like to interrupt its usual liberal pandering for ... even more liberal pandering. While this season has hammered down on refugees, government employees, and even removing the president from office, now the show is super serious on the subject of a new character’s sexuality.
In what really could only be described as a completely bonkers conspiracy theory, The Nation magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel suggested Sunday that Rex Tillerson was fired from the secretary of state position because his replacement was funded by the Koch brothers and because the administration wanted a war with Iran. If you’re confused, don’t worry, the rest of the liberal panel on ABC’s This Week didn’t seem to be able to follow her convoluted mess either.
In the wake of the former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s firing from the FBI for misleading Inspector General investigators, the liberal media were rife with misinformation of their own. During the Sunday morning news programs, NBC’s Chuck Todd mislead viewers on why McCabe was fired and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos lied about the messages sent by pro-Hillary Clinton FBI agents investigating her and President Trump.
It only took fourteen episodes of the final season, but ABC’s Scandal has finally covered the #MeToo movement. The latest episode has Olivia and the other Gladiators working to expose the sexual offenders within Congress, because if there is anyone qualified to expose hidden sex perverts, it’s a Hollywood show.
During Wednesday’s World News Tonight, ABC and anchor David Muir made it clear that they cared little about how former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe mislead Inspector General investigators. Rather, they were more concerned about him losing his pension. The same was true Thursday evening when their network competitors moved on from the story while ABC was still fixated on the possibility of a lost pension after a career spanning 22 years.
On Wednesday, word leaked out that the FBI’s Inspector General’s office was recommending former deputy director Andrew McCabe be fired for misleading their investigators who were looking into the handling of the Clinton e-mail investigation. The report hasn’t been made public yet but it comes as the Trump administration was experiencing numerous firings. While ABC, CBS, and NBC had previously hyped such firings, NBC ignored this one as ABC spent more time worried about McCabe’s pension.
Wednesday was marked by the mass exodus of students from reportedly over 3,500 schools who cut class and took to the streets for gun control. The liberal media flocked to the nationwide spectacles to hear their talking points parroted back at them. ABC, CBS, and NBC all led with the protests to kick off their evening newscasts.
ABC’s For The People is the latest series by outspokenly liberal producer Shonda Rhimes, the same woman behind ABC Thursday night powerhouses Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder. Because apparently we didn't have enough diverse, attractive people spewing liberal speech in our faces in settings like hospitals, D.C. and law schools, we now have this show to insert Rhimes’s moral platitudes into the mouths of lawyers arguing before the federal court. First case up, racial profiling.
On Monday, the House Intelligence Committee closed its inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, much to the chagrin of the liberal media. The committee confirmed that the Russians were indeed trying to cause chaos in the election, claimed they weren’t out to help candidate Donald Trump specifically and that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. But during their evening broadcasts, ABC and CBS downplayed the findings while NBC ignored them.
The liberal media were in sour moods Monday after the White House released its plan to address school safety and gun control. Journalists on the evening newscasts were upset that the plan didn’t have the sweeping and constitutionally-questionable actions they were desperately hoping for, which also had them singing President Trump’s praises just two weeks ago.
When it was first announced last Thursday that President Trump was to personally meet with North Korea Dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations, the media’s response varied from optimistic to seething anger. But with some time, it appears as though their consensus is now to denounce the idea, as was blatantly obvious on Sunday’s Meet the Press. The entire panel up in arms and fretting that Trump was either going to hand North Korea a victory or blow a gasket at the meeting and start a war.
As unpopular and questionable as President Trump’s new tariffs on steel and aluminum were, they did have some appeal to a seemingly unlikely group: Senate Democrats (along with a few House members). With the President signing the necessary documents in front of the cameras on Thursday flanked by American steelworkers, Senators let the press know they supported the move. But if you were only watching ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News, you would think there was only opposition.
