Although the Mueller report did not recommend any charges against the President, liberal journalists on cable and broadcast networks spent Thursday suggesting to audiences that impeachment was imminent, if not inevitable. Throughout Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, liberal talking heads on cable and broadcast news networks mentioned impeachment an astonishing 309 times during their coverage the of the newly-released Mueller report.
The holiest time of the year doesn't provide a break for Christians from Hollywood's anti-religious bias on TV. If anything, it makes it worse.
With a redacted Mueller report being released today, it's not merely the talking heads who are reacting in a bizarre fashion, it's also Hollywood, too.
Liberal women like nothing more than to fantasize about First Lady Melania Trump divorcing President Trump. It is beyond their imagination that she is happy in her marriage to President Trump. This fantasy is put to use in the April 18 episode of CBS All-Access’s The Good Fight.
With the Thursday release of the Special Counsel report reiterating that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and at least partially explaining why there was no charge on obstruction, the next concern for ABC and CBS was the status of Democratic efforts to impeach the President.
In the middle of the media’s outrage over Bill Barr’s statements at the pre-Mueller report release press conference, rational analysis was found on CBS, as legal analyst Jonathan Turley calmly and bluntly dismantled the Democrats’ concerns over the Attorney General’s impartiality. The George Washington University Constitutional Law Professor also called out CBS reporter Paula Reid’s badgering of Barr during the presser as “insulting.”
Hours before Attorney General William Barr was set hold a press conference at the Justice Department ahead of the public release of the Mueller report, all three network morning shows hyped Democratic talking points preemptively trashing the presser and accusing Barr of just doing President Trump’s “partisan bidding.”
While many in the Democratic Party were fine defending anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN), on Wednesday we learned there were some that reject her and her money. According to reports and campaign finance filings, at least two congressional Democrats had either rejected contributions from Omar or refunded her the money. This bucking of the party’s normalization of anti-Semitism sadly went unreported during the evening news programs of ABC, CBS, and NBC.
The co-hosts of CBS This Morning on Wednesday celebrated Gayle King’s selection for the Time 100 Most Influential People list. John Dickerson read the gushing tribute by filmmaker Ava DuVernay, hailing the “all-time great” King. DuVernay praised, “What most don’t understand about Gayle is that this perfected proximity to others is a superpower that the best journalists possess.”
As if it somehow sank the conservative agenda or upended a Fox News narrative, the ABC and CBS Tuesday evening news programs hailed the heavily Democratic Fox News town hall audience that cheered for Bernie Sander’s Medicare for All healthcare plan.
CBS on Monday night and Tuesday morning focused on the Trump administration’s zero tolerance separation policy, blasting it as “cruel” and an example of why journalists need to get beyond “policy” and focus on real world results. Strangely, CBS journalists often skip the equally heart-wrenching impacts of murders and drunk driving killings by those illegally in the United States.
In her first time back on CBS Evening News following her maternity leave Monday, White House correspondent Weijia Jiang appeared to take a swipe at Trump supporters for fueling the feud between President Trump and anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN-D). In her report, Jiang put the blame for the “conflict” on Trump while downplaying Omar’s role and anti-Semitism.
