Any rational person who listened to Hillary Clinton’s recent suggestion that Congresswoman and combat veteran Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was a Russian plant in the 2020 election understood it to be the ramblings of a person unglued. But on Friday, CBS Evening News touted Clinton’s baseless smears by calling them “extraordinary” and “stunning”. But come Sunday, CBS had avoided the topic while ABC and NBC were pumping the brakes and, surprisingly, calling Clinton out.
It was one year ago this week that Elizabeth Warren released a disastrous video attempting to bolster her claims of being a Native American. It was poorly received and even liberal ABC, CBS and NBC dismissed the efforts. To recap, Warren in the fall of 2018 produced results of a DNA test she insisted proves her Native American heritage. On October 16, 2018, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning quoted from a Cherokee Nation statement eviscerating Warren:
On Friday, CBS This Morning was fearful of pro-life legislation passed in Louisiana that would require abortion doctors have admitting privileges to hospitals. The coverage sounded the alarm about the move potentially “regulating abortion out of existence” in the state and fretted over the upcoming Supreme Court decision that would determine whether the new law violated Roe v. Wade.
The Washington Free Beacon’s Andrew Kugle released Friday morning the site’s latest indispensable SUPERcut. This time, the topic centered around the not surprising but nonetheless horribly biased double standard between when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wagged a finger toward President Donald Trump versus when then-Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ) did so to Barack Obama in January 2012.
On Friday, both NBC’s Today show and CBS This Morning labeled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s decision not to censor political speech on the social network as “controversial.” The coverage emphasized that 2020 Democratic candidates were particularly upset by move, after trying to pressure Facebook into banning ads from the President Trump’s reelection campaign.
Elijah Cummings, the late Maryland Democratic congressman who passed away due to health complications Thursday, was the son of sharecrop farmers, became civil rights icon, and served for decades in the House of Representatives. But CBS Evening News boiled his life achievements down to largely what he was doing the last few years of his life: battling President Trump.
On Thursday, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows all quickly accepted talking points from House Democrats that President Trump suffered a “meltdown” during a White House meeting with them on Wednesday afternoon. While some administration push-back was included in the coverage, reporters on all three networks laid blame for the Democrats walking out of that meeting solely on the President.
CBS This Morning on Wednesday joined the chorus of media personalities declaring Elizabeth Warren the front-runner. Major Garrett hailed her “poise” and “passion” and offered a value neutral assessment on her refusal to give a straight answer on the cost of Medicare for all. After co-host Anthony Mason wondered “how did she handle being the front-runner,” Garrett responded, “With poise, passion, and on Medicare for all, evasion.”
In the midst of covering Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, on Wednesday, all three network morning shows excitedly shared the news that far-left New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and radical Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar would be endorsing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders for President. None of the extreme views or scandals of either left-wing lawmaker were mentioned.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows presented an united front while praising 2020 Democratic candidates for “showing a united front against President Trump” during Tuesday night’s presidential debate. Reporters eagerly touted how all 12 contenders on stage supported impeachment and denounced Trump.
The partisans at The Washington Post pretended in a front-page “news” article on Sunday that somehow President Trump was losing his marbles in “rage,” going “beyond his often-untethered bounds.” Post readers were supposed to be highly disturbed about his mental state when he held a raucous rally in Minneapolis and said supposedly crazy things like the Democrats are carrying out “a brazen attempt to overthrow our government.” What is this attempt to impeach and remove Trump, if not an overthrow of the president?
Newsbusters has been regularly documenting how the major television networks are pushing a pro-illegal immigration/anti-ICE narrative in their dramas and comedies. Network shows use similar buzz words, as if Hollywood writers are just borrowing “fill-in-the-blanks” worksheets provided to them by open borders advocates.
