CBS This Morning
The narratives surrounding the 2-year-old girl photographed crying at the U.S.-Mexico border have imploded so completely that it couldn't possibly get more embarrassing, right? Wrong. A later segment of CBS's This Morning revealed that young Yanela Denise Hernandez's mother, Sandra Sanchez, was deported in 2013.
CBS This Morning hosts on Friday unveiled a new series that basically amounts to an op-ed during the supposedly straight news show. Calling it “The Reporter’s Notebook,” co-host John Dickerson celebrated the White House’s reversal on splitting children as a victory for “the human tribe.” Norah O’Donnell touted co-host Gayle King’s lecture from this week that “the Statue of Liberty weeps” at the administration’s actions.
While the liberal media all went wild over Time magazine’s latest photoshopped cover depicting an aloof President Trump towering over a crying immigrant child, on Friday, only CBS This Morning took the time to correct the record and explain how “misleading” that doctored image was. Unlike NBC or ABC, the broadcast network actually sought out the Border Patrol agent who first encountered the child and her mother, explaining that the two were not separated.
CBS on Thursday once again showed itself to be the network that will at least consider not demonizing law-abiding firearms owners. This Morning co-host Gayle King highlighted a good guy with a gun who stopped an armed carjacker in Washington State. Pastor David George, described as a “holy hero” by the onscreen graphic, killed a gunman who was firing on others.
President Trump signing an executive order on Wednesday to stop the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border was greeted Thursday morning by broadcast networks and cable news channels hailing the latest cover of Time magazine, which savaged Trump by using an altered image to portray him as indifferent to a crying young child.
With the stroke of a pen, President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday that would officially end the policy of separating parents and children who come across the southern border illegally. It’s what many on the right and left wanted to see happen, but for the liberal media it wasn’t enough, as CBS anchor Jeff Glor demonstrated by opining about how Trump was trying to “put out a big political fire with a few drops of ink.”
ABC and NBC on Tuesday and Wednesday buried the unraveling story of Peter Strzok and his tainted connection to both the Russia investigation and Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal. The rogue FBI agent on Tuesday was escorted out of the organization’s headquarters. But despite a combined seven hours of air time on the two networks, there was zero coverage on the latest.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows promoted video of left-wing protesters shouting profanity at Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen while she was trying to have dinner at Washington D.C. restaurant Tuesday night. The footage was provided to the liberal media by the radical political group itself, the Metro D.C. Democratic Socialists of America.
In just over a week’s time, the big three networks have devoted an unbelievable amount of time trying to take down the Trump Administration over its zero tolerance immigration policy. We updated you last night with the whopping 258 minutes of coverage ABC, NBC and CBS spent in just seven days of morning and evening broadcasts, but today that number spiked yet again. Today’s morning shows spent over an hour on this topic alone (61 minutes) to a grand total of 319 minutes since June 13.
It has been a full week since the liberal broadcasts networks of ABC, CBS, and, NBC began their full-court press against President Trump’s zero-tolerance immigration policy being implemented on the U.S.-Mexico border. On Tuesday, the trio added an additional 82 minutes between their morning and evening broadcasts.
A day after sneering that the policy of separating illegal immigrants from their children is making the “Statue of Liberty weep,” CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King badgered a Mexican American to be easier on illegals. King talked to Frank, a man who works in construction.
During interviews on both NBC’s Megyn Kelly Today and CBS This Morning on Monday, Barack Obama’s former communications director Dan Pfeiffer was treated to numerous softball questions that allowed him to promote his new book, political podcast, and blast the Trump administration.
