Despite China being responsible for mass death around the globe because of their Wuhan coronavirus outbreak, the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News spent part of their Tuesday airtime cheering for the end of the Wuhan, China lockdown. NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel went so far as to protect the communist regime and suggest there were mere “accusations” they were “fudging” numbers.
President Trump drew the ire of CBS Evening News and White House correspondent Weijia Jiang on Monday for daring to keep American spirits up, and letting them know there was “light at the end of the tunnel.” Citing unnamed “experts,” Jiang decried Trump’s optimism by claiming the country wasn’t even in the tunnel yet.
We live in chaotic times. The coronavirus is wreaking havoc on our country and our economy. The 2020 election is, justifiably, a secondary concern for many Americans. But journalists are still assisting the Democrats, ignoring sex abuse allegations against Joe Biden. And it won’t be long before they start making dire predictions about GOP doom. In that spirit, let’s take a look at this week’s FLASHBACK. Almost exactly four years ago, veteran CBS journalist Bob Schieffer predicted an epic loss for the Republicans in that year's presidential contest.
With the grave coronavirus pandemic worsening this week, the White House Coronavirus Task Force briefings have been far more sobering and less combative than past episodes. Sunday and Monday featured fireworks, but it wasn’t until Friday’s that tensions resurfaced as President Trump squared off in two exchanges with CNN’s Jim Acosta and CBS’s Weijia Jiang.
Liberal critics’ favorite show is coming back with an episode that fulfills every lefty’s sweetest dream. CBS All Access’s anti-Trump The Good Fight returns for season 4 with a premiere that imagines an alt history where Hillary Clinton won the presidency in 2016.
Another network poll is out finding majority support for Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus and this time CBS didn’t even manage 10 seconds for the news. Instead, CBS This Morning on Thursday skipped the positive numbers and barely mentioned the survey at all. In the 7am hour, co-host Tony Dokoupil announced, “A CBS News poll out this morning shows about half of Americans, 51 percent of us, believe the outbreak will get worse in the next month. Only 28 percent think it will get better.”
Despite the fact President Trump had banned flights from China from entering the U.S. back in January (a move praised by Dr. Anthony Fauci as crucial to the fight against the coronavirus), the CBS Evening News and White House correspondent Weijia Jiang spent a portion of Wednesday’s program pushing suggestions the administration had acted too slowly and it was costing American lives.
As if “Silkworm,” the March 31 episode of FBI: Most Wanted about a rogue FBI agent who is working with the Chinese, didn’t have enough excitement and intrigue, the show added a new take on the silkworm, as a representation of transgenderism. While hunting down rogue Agent Paul Hayden (Joshua Malina), Agent Jess LaCroix (Julian McMahon) also does some digging into someone named “Silkworm."
The liberal media’s fear-mongering has gotten out of control. Watchers of Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News were given the impression that the Trump administration was content with anywhere between 100,000 and 240,000 Americans dying to the coronavirus in the next few weeks. That’s because correspondent Geoff Bennett flagrantly lied and claimed that projection was their “best-case scenario.” In reality, it was far from it.
It’s been nearly a week since a former Joe Biden staffer leveled disturbing accusations of sexual misconduct against the Democratic presidential frontrunner, and yet ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN haven’t said a single word about them. In that same time period, CNN, MSNBC and NBC have hosted Biden for a total of three interviews (including an hour-long town hall on CNN), and no host asked even a single question about these new charges.
Panic and fear were on the top of the agenda for ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News during their Monday night broadcasts. Each of these networks harped on valid worries over a lack of personal protective equipment for health care workers, ventilators, and the lag in results of coronavirus testing. But it was only NBC Nightly News that highlighted what the Trump administration was doing to alleviate the problems.
Whether motivated by ratings or by some political agenda, liberal TV news networks on Sunday acted as though the coronavirus numbers released by the Communist Party of China were trustworthy enough to report on American national television. Throughout Sunday morning and into the afternoon, journalists on both cable and broadcast networks proclaimed that the number of confirmed cases in the United States had surpassed those in both China and Italy, even though that claim relies on dubious figures reported by the Chinese government.
