Like much of the media, ABC News celebrated the announcement from Dick’s Sporting Goods that it would be restricting gun sales following the Parkland school shooting in February. However, when it was reported on Wednesday that the retail chain was suffering a financial backlash for the decision, ABC was the only broadcast network to ignore the story.
Liberal journalists are all for sanctuary cities, flying in the face of federal immigration laws and federal jurisdiction on the matter. But when the small town of Republic, Washington took a stand against their state’s infringement on constitutional gun rights, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were nowhere to be seen.
It has not been a good November for the so-called “creepy porn lawyer” and 2020 Democratic hopeful Michael Avenatti. First he was arrested for a domestic violence charge from a former girlfriend, then he had a restraining order filed against him from the same person. On Wednesday, his claim to fame porn star Stormy Daniels, had apparently cut ties with him and called him out for filing law suits against her wishes. Despite this stunning turn of events, CBS and ABC couldn’t be bothered to mention it.
The far-left Murphy Brown revival has been cancelled after just 13 episodes, according to the Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday. The entertainment outlet explained that the show managed just a 0.9 in the key 18-49 demo. Ouch. The only reason the show came back, according to its stars, is the loss of Hillary Clinton in 2016.
On CBS’s Tuesday night broadcast of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, former Daily Show host Jon Stewart used his hard-left comedy to mock Donald Trump’s presidency as a “giant turd asteroid” that Stewart is glad to have avoided covering.
A few days after a failed violent assault by a hoard of Central American migrants tried to invade the U.S. on Sunday, over 100 of them grew frustrated and boarded planes for their home countries on Tuesday. And after being appalled by President Trump’s defense of Border Patrol’s use of mere tear gas to repel the attack, ABC and NBC couldn’t be bothered that evening to mention the migrants packing up and leaving plus how Tijuana locals were happy to see them go.
All three networks have failed to report on an alleged attempted hate crime against two men leaving a Jewish synagogue last Friday in Los Angeles. While another anti-semitic hate crime in Pittsburgh October 27 received mass coverage, the alleged suspect’s identity in this recent attack may be one reason why it hasn’t received any coverage on the major networks thus far.
If you’ve been tuned into TV news the past few days, you’ve probably heard “climate change could strip away 10 percent” of U.S economic growth by 2100. What you likely didn’t hear was why that was an “embarrassing” exaggeration based on the earth warming 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
As the networks decried the Trump administration’s use of tear gas on illegal immigrants trying to storm the border, none of them on Monday night or Tuesday morning mentioned the awkward fact that the Obama administration tear gassed migrants routinely, once a month even. The Washington Times on Monday explained, “The same tear-gas agent that the Trump administration is taking heat for deploying against a border mob this weekend is actually used fairly frequently — including more than once a month during the later years of President Barack Obama’s administration.”
The day before the Mississippi Senate runoff the liberal media trying desperately to drag Democrat Mike Espy over the finish line by dragging GOP Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith through the mud. They’re putting all their money into smearing Hyde-Smith as a racist and the product of a racist state. During their Monday evening newscasts, ABC, CBS, and NBC did everything they could to attack her, with one going so far as to attack her teenage daughter with lies about attending a segregated school.
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Monday prompted Senator Bernie Sanders, finishing his liberal policy prescriptions and encouraging him to attack Republicans. None of the co-hosts bothered to identify Sanders as a socialist or even a leftist. Instead, co-host Norah O'Donnell introduced the leftist as a “political independent,” touting: “Sanders, who was just reelected as a political independent, is pushing a bold agenda that includes protecting DACA recipients and comprehensive immigration reform.”
On Monday morning, NBC’s Today show and CBS This Morning read from the same liberal script as reporters on both networks hyped exaggerated predictions in a new government climate change study. Amid all the fearmongering, correspondents hammered “deniers” like President Trump for not forcing dramatic reductions in fossil fuel emissions.
