If you’re a politician with “D” at the end of your name, it grants you certain privileges from an all too friendly press. They go easy on you in interviews, give you the benefit of the doubt, and if you’re ever charged or convicted of a serious crime, they’ll mostly ignore it. This double standard was on full display Wednesday when New York GOP Congressman Chris Collins was arrested for alleged insider trading.
As we continue to get updates on more gruesome discoveries and the squalid living conditions at a New Mexico compound that included 11 starving children (ages one to 15) and the dead body of one child, one key detail had gone totally unreported by the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC): The ties to radical Islam.
They either know they’re pushing a false claim or they need to get their heads checked. On Monday evening, the liberal broadcast networks of ABC and NBC continued their fake news campaign by pushing a false claim that President Trump only recently admitted the infamous Trump Tower meeting was for opposition research, when, in fact, he admitted it over a year ago.
Fresh from spreading #FakeNews about who President Trump targeted with insults about intelligence on Sunday, moderator Chuck Todd kick off his Meet the Press interview with Missouri Senator Roy Blunt (R) by badgering him about the President’s attacks on the press and refusing to acknowledge that the media does, in fact, put out fake news.
It’s well known that President Trump has no problem with lobbing insults that opponents and those who attack him. It’s something the liberal media whines about almost every day. But on NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd misled viewers by appearing to insinuate that the President reserved insults of intelligence to African-Americans. Thus calling him a racist yet again.
For days, the liberal media have been experiencing a Chernobyl level meltdown about a Texas company releasing online instructions for 3D printing plastic weapons that actually fire real bullets. Of course, none of them did their homework and spewed inaccurate nonsense in an effort to stoke public fear of guns. After a liberal judge in Seattle blocked the release on Tuesday, the broadcast networks sang their praises with one network touting Democrats who said President Trump had blood on his hands.
McAllen, Texas public officials appeared to be caught lying by omission on Monday after CBS correspondent David Begnaud reported via Twitter that they were failing to disclose the legal status of seven suspects involved in a jewelry store robbery. It was a scoop backed up by two federal law enforcement sources familiar with the case but during that night’s CBS Evening News, the network completely ignored it.
It was only a matter of time before the liberal media’s derangement got so out of control that they would start accusing the entire conservative movement of working for Russian interests, and it finally happened. During Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC moderator Chuck Todd used the recent indictment of Russian national, Marina Butina to suggest that not only was the National Rifle Association infiltrated by Russians but “all levels of the conservative movement” were as well.
We’re more than halfway through the summer and with the midterm elections drawing closer, the liberal media have been desperate to continue the Democratic Party’s “blue wave” narrative despite a booming economy and improving poll numbers. And during Sunday’s This Week on ABC, host Martha Raddatz wondered how the Democrats planned to “counter” the voters who approved of the conservative things President Trump had done for the country.
On Thursday, President Trump tweeted out a threat og levying “large sanctions” against Turkey for their arrest of American pastor Andrew Brunson on trumped up charges of espionage related to the failed 2016 military coup. Both ABC and NBC omitted the President’s efforts from their evening broadcasts and CBS seemed shocked that he would threaten a NATO ally in that sort of way.
The liberal media love to pretend that their news cycles are dictated entirely by President Trump’s Twitter feed. It’s their number one excuse when average Americans complain they’re not covering other and arguably more important topics. But oh how quickly their fascination with his account fades when he mentions something they rather keep hidden. For Thursday’s evening broadcasts on ABC, CBS, and NBC (as well as on Spanish-language Univision and Telemundo) it was Twitter allegedly “shadow banning” conservative accounts.
At a Wednesday press conference in the White House Rose Garden, President Trump and E.U. Chief Executive Jean-Claude Juncker announced that the two trade partners were moving forward on a plan to end their trade war. Juncker’s presence at the White House illustrated that it was the E.U. that caved under pressure, but the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were having none of it and refused to give Trump the win.
