Good Morning America
After a day of trying to keep it under wraps, even the liberal networks showered mockery on Elizabeth Warren’s disastrous attempt to prove Native American heritage. ABC, CBS and NBC on Tuesday questioned her strategy, featured outrage from actual Native Americans, and openly laughed at her unofficial presidential rollout.
In a big legal victory for President Trump, a federal judge late Monday tossed out a defamation lawsuit filed against him by porn star Stormy Daniels and her lawyer/possible 2020 presidential candidate Michael Avenatti, demanding they pay Trump’s attorneys fees. When it came to Tuesday mornings’s broadcast network newscasts, the news all but fell on deaf ears with only 63 seconds of coverage and none mentioning the judge’s request that Daniels pay for Trump’s attorney fees.
Tuesday on Good Morning America, Nightline anchor JuJu Chang profiled former Obama White House photographer Pete Souza for his newest book, entitled Shade, and about his snarky photo captions bashing President Trump on Instagram. Chang opened her report by calling the 63-year-old photographer a “very unlikely Instagram superstar” whose made a name for himself on social media by replying to President Trump’s tweets with sarcastic comments. “It's earned him the moniker, ‘the King of Shade,’” Chang gushed.
Amid all the media hand-wringing over President Trump’s contentious 60 Minutes interview, one common theme that emerged on Monday morning was all three broadcast networks fretting over his skepticism of man-made climate change. Anchors and correspondents were aghast that Trump could have any doubt in the wake of a recent “dire” United Nations report on the global climate.
Actress and liberal activist Alyssa Milano appeared on Good Morning America Monday to talk about the one year anniversary of the #MeToo movement which she helped start. Milano, who has been a vocal critic of President Trump and Republicans, also took time to bash President Trump for raising concerns about false accusations, saying that he was only afraid of “progress” because “white men” were losing their power.
In a brand new ABC News/Washington Post poll out Sunday, the news organizations found a sizable five-point “uptick” in President Trump’s approval rating over a poll published in August. The increase to 41 percent came after the contentious battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh that left the Republicans unified and energized like they hadn’t been since the Obama years. Despite that fact, the cast of ABC’s Good Morning America that morning didn’t see it helping the GOP much in November.
When it comes to the so-called mainstream media, it’s a case of Kanye West vs. Kanye West. The Networks on Thursday and Friday mocked the “bizarre,” “surreal” rapper for appearing at the White House with Donald Trump. But these outlets gushed over the “thoughtful” entertainer when he derided then-President George W. Bush as a racist.
On Good Morning America Wednesday, ABC previewed an upcoming one-on-one interview with First Lady Melania Trump that will air next week. Anchor Tom Llamas didn’t hold back from confronting Mrs. Trump on controversial topics, even at one point, scolding the First Lady for not being sensitive enough to the #MeToo movement.
In the midst of the Kavanaugh show trial with the Senate Judiciary Committee back on September 27, longtime Democratic staffer Jackson Cosko released personal information (including the home addresses) for Republican members of the committee.This act of “doxxing” went all but ignored by the liberal media for almost two weeks. On Tuesday, a judge denied him bail and the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) continued their total blackout.
ABC’s Good Morning America strongly rebuked President Trump Tuesday morning for daring to suggest that our country’s judicial system runs on the concept of “innocent until proven guilty.” Trump made these comments during the public swearing-in ceremony of Justice Brett Kavanaugh Monday evening, adding that Kavanaugh was “proven innocent” under “historic scrutiny.” That last line really irked ABC reporter Cecilia Vega who declared repeatedly how false this was.
On Monday, the focus of midterm election coverage on all three network morning shows was cheering on pop star Taylor Swift “as she uses her voice to venture into the political fray” by endorsing Democrats in her home state of Tennessee. Anchors and reporters gushed over the singer finally using her influence to push a liberal agenda after having “avoided politics in the past.”
Is Brett Kavanaugh like the knife-wielding psychopath Michael Myers in the Halloween franchise? Jamie Lee Curtis, the star of five films in the horror series, is appearing on multiple media outlets to link the fictional stalking of her character, Laurie Strode, to the real-world accusations in the Kavanaugh case. Appearing on The View, Curtis compared, “And the heroine of Halloween is a woman who suffered a trauma when she was 17 like Dr. Ford when she was 17.” Trying to make the connection, the actress touted the topicality of the new Halloween: “But it’s actually about something. The movie is about trauma.”
