The anti-Trump Resistance appeared to have been dealt a crippling blow Wednesday evening when news broke that Special Counsel Robert Mueller couldn’t indict President Trump. The revelation came from Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani who said Mueller admitted to him, investigators would be following decades-old DOJ guidelines that say a sitting president cannot be indicted. This Washington-shaking news went largely unreported by the network evening broadcasts. In contrast, they spent over nine minutes on pointless pop culture news.
ABC’s legal drama For The People has covered a lot of social justice topics in its short run on television, quite a few of them based on real-life events. However, the Shondaland series may have hit a new low by rewriting history to suit their liberal needs. The May 15 episode “Extraordinary Circumstances” resembles that of an infamous case against a Democrat governor but with a significant party twist.
In addition to siding with violent Palestinian border assaulters during Tuesday’s CBS Evening News, the network had anchor Jeff Glor sit down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu where he tried to grill the leader on his county’s military response. But despite Glor’s best efforts, Netanyahu schooled him on what it was like to be a country surrounded by enemies that want to see you destroyed.
For two days now, the liberal media’s anti-Israel smears have grown wilder and arguably begun to border on something more. The Tuesday evening broadcasts of the major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were no exception as they mourned with the Palestinians on the day they call the “catastrophe,” or the anniversary of Israel’s creation.
With very little attention given to the fact that the terrorist organization Hamas, which runs Gaza, was directing its people to storm the security fence that lines the Israeli border, CBS anchor Jeff Glor and Foreign correspondent Holly Williams lament the deaths and painted Israel as the oppressive villain killing civilians in a “dance with death” at the border. CBS Evening News effectively doubled down on their network’s obnoxious anti-Israel coverage from earlier Monday morning.
Despite all the good news for America this week, like the freeing of American hostages and the low unemployment rate AND the capture ISIS leaders, the ABC panel on Sunday’s This Week was huffing about President Trump ending the Iran nuclear deal. The bitter panelists were up in arms and were making predictions of just more war on the horizon. One even claimed the Trump administration was setting us up for the Iraq War 2.0.
It has been 70 years since the Jewish people were allowed to return to their homeland of Israel after World War II, and on Monday the United States will be moving its embassy to their capital city, Jerusalem. And during ABC’s Good Morning America on Sunday, they proclaimed the Trump administration was “killing any prospect of peace” in the region with the embassy move. Their naysaying came as the President was set to sit down with North Korea for historic peace talks and denuclearization.
There was a lot of winning for the United States this week between the release of three American hostages from North Korea, unemployment at 3.9 percent, and on Thursday news broke that the U.S. had captured five of ISIS’s top leaders. But depending on which of the major network news outlets you watch, you may not have heard about the captured leaders. CBS Evening News was the only member of the big three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) to even mention it that evening.The national evening newscasts of Spanish-language Univision and Telemundo also kept quiet about it.
Following Israel’s counterstrike against Iranian military forces in Syria in response to 20 missiles being launched int the Golan Heights late Wednesday into Thursday, ABC’s World News Tonight took to the airwaves Thursday to paint the United States and Israel as the cause of the confrontation. And meanwhile, on NBC Nightly News, chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel warned that the U.S.’s Israel embassy relocation to Jerusalem could push the Middle East “over the edge.”
You might recall that ABC’s Designated Survivor was one of many shows this season that have offered up a plot involving the removal of a president from office. Now, the series has changed tactics by simply introducing a potential indictment to tarnish the president's administration and dissuade him from running for reelection. One way or another, I guess liberals are determined to take down a president, especially since it’s not working in real life.
There was great news out of the Korean Peninsula Wednesday as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo retrieved the three Americans the North Korea arrested on trumped up charges going as far back as 2015. The North Korean regime released the hostages from their labor camps as a good faith measure ahead of the historic summit with the United States. Despite the wonderful news, ABC felt the need to rain on everyone’s parade and bring up the anti-American backlash from Iran over the Iran deal.
The same day the Trump administration was able to secure the release of three American hostages from North Korea in the run-up to the historic summit, CBS foreign correspondent Elizabeth Palmer was in the capital of Iran claiming the people felt like hostages of the same Trump administration. At the same time, she failed to mention Iran was actually holding several Americans captive.
