Good Morning America
Thursday night, Washington Examiner’s Rob Crilly, Steven Nelson, and David Drucker reported that alleged CIA whistleblower at the center of the congressional inquiry seeking to impeach and remove President Donald Trump “had a ‘professional’ tie” to “Joe Biden, according to intelligence officers and former White House officials.” But on the Friday morning and evening flagship broadcast network newscasts, this update was ignored.
Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday to discuss his new book, Catch and Kill, journalist Ronan Farrow described how NBC News executives ordered him to cease all reporting on allegations against Harvey Weinstein in 2017. That revelation came following another bombshell in the upcoming book that Weinstein may have used knowledge of disgraced Today show host Matt Lauer’s wrongdoings to blackmail NBC into killing the story.
On Friday, all three network morning shows seemed shocked that President Trump would spend time during a 2020 campaign rally Thursday night attacking Democrats over their impeachment push. Reporters were aghast that Trump would launch “vicious attacks on his Democratic rivals” and describe impeachment “in almost apocalyptic terms.”
While failing CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell suggested the NBA was in a “free speech dispute with China,” the facts of the matter showed the league was perfectly fine with cracking down on free speech targeting the murderous communist state. In back to back nights, the NBA ejected peaceful advocates for democracy and freedom in Hong Kong from games here in the U.S. Despite the NBA doing the bidding of the communists, the liberal broadcast networks blacked it out from their flagship morning and evening newscasts on Wednesday and Thursday.
Reporting live from the Ukrainian capital of Kiev on Thursday for ABC’s Good Morning America, correspondent Tom Llamas proudly touted how he repeatedly grilled the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, on whether President Trump was “corrupt.”
Thursday all three networks reported on President Trump telling reporters Wednesday that the whistleblower is not only a registered Democrat, but actually worked for one of his 2020 rivals. Trump was referencing a report that came out Tuesday and that ABC and CBS had effectively ignored until they were forced to address it on Thursday’s morning shows. While each network touted the whistleblower’s lawyers denials, CBS was the only network to concede that their own reporting corroborated the whistleblower did indeed work for a 2020 rival. ABC, on the other hand, flatly denied this information, claiming this was just a “smear campaign” from the President.
During their Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning newscasts, the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) seized on a newly released anonymous whistleblower memo that described the reaction of one White House official listening to President Trump’s call with the president of Ukraine. The keywords that elevated their intrigue involved the official calling the call “crazy” and “frightening.”
On Tuesday, the Washington Examiner’s Byron York broke the news that the whistleblower that sparked the Trump-Ukraine impeachment push had a “significant tie to one of the Democratic presidential candidates.” Total broadcast news coverage of this stunning revelation: A meager 38 seconds on Wednesday’s edition of NBC’s Today show.
Massachusetts Senator and 2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren was no stranger to spreading tall tales about her life, just look at her false claims of being Native American. On Monday, The Washington Free Beacon caught her in another apparent lie. This time it was about allegedly being fired from a teaching gig for being “visibly pregnant”. The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were so obsessed with President Trump’s impeachment that they failed to report it on their flagship morning and evening newscasts.
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows breathlessly seized on House Democrats reportedly “considering extreme measures” to conceal the identity of the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry. Reporters on ABC, NBC, and CBS touted schemes by liberal lawmakers to disguise the appearance or voice of the anonymous government official in order for him or her to testify before Congress.
ABC’s World News Tonight was the only broadcast network evening newscast to completely ignore the sweeping and bipartisan outrage against the NBA for their kowtow to communist China’s totalitarian censorship policies. That news blackout came after their Good Morning America segment which boosted Chinese outrage at Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey for daring to support pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. Of course, ABC is own by Disney, who routinely submits themselves to China’s censorship.
“I would be acting as a juror,” Republican Senator Susan Collins (ME) explained to the press as to why she would not be prejudging President Trump ahead of a possible Senate impeachment trial. But that wasn’t a good enough reason, according to the way the folks on ABC’s Good Morning America were huffing on Sunday.
