Good Morning America
Perhaps the reason why Monday’s network morning shows only spent a combined 74 seconds discussing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders singing the praises of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was because journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS knew full well that they had provided even more effusive commentary on the communist autocrat.
On Monday, all three network morning shows combined could only manage a little over a minute (74 seconds) of air time to mention 2020 Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders defending deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro on Sunday’s 60 Minutes. However, after President Trump held a summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in July of 2018, the same broadcasts devoted 34 minutes to excoriating the meeting – and that was just in the first half hour of the respective shows.
It was just another morning on ABC’s Good Morning America where one former aide to a Democrat president sat down for a friendly chat with another former aide to a Democrat president. Ex-Clinton staffer and GMA co-host George Stephanopoulos brought on Obama chief of staff and former mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel to tout his new book celebrating what else? Chicago’s liberal policies.
All three network morning shows on Thursday ripped into Michael Bloomberg’s Democratic debate debut, hammering the “universally bad” night as possibly a “knockout punch” for the former New York Mayor. ABC even suggested it would have been better if Bloomberg never qualified for the debate.
Thursday on Good Morning America, ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos worked with disgraced former Democrat congresswoman Katie Hill, to revamp her reputation. Hill resigned last November after a bizarre sex scandal with a campaign staffer came to light, but Stephanopoulos praised Hill as a “resilient woman” who should have “stayed and fought” against her critics.
Reporting live from Victoria Falls in central Africa for Wednesday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s chief meteorologist Ginger Zee used the spectacular location to lecture American viewers about climate change. It was all part of the network’s new Extraordinary Earth series leading up to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in April.
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America on ABC, the network celebrated former NBA player Dwyane Wade and his actress wife, Gabrielle Union’s decision to transition their pre-teen son into a girl. Co-anchors George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts hailed the child’s “courage” and “wisdom” while encouraging Wade to share his woke parenting knowledge with less enlightened Americans.
The NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows on Tuesday all excitedly cheered the news that Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos would devote billions of dollars to fighting climate change. The networks also made sure to point out that Bezos was bowing to pressure from left-wing climate activists working at Amazon.
On Monday, the network morning shows predictably all seized on an open letter from former Justice Department officials demanding the resignation of Attorney General William Barr. However, the broadcasts conveniently left out the fact that several of the ex-DOJ employees who signed on to the letter currently serve as professional anti-Trump pundits on CNN and MSNBC.
Allegations of sexism and inappropriate remarks are swirling around the rising 2020 campaign of Michael Bloomberg. But CBS is skimping on the details — including how the businessman allegedly made gross insinuations about women and oral sex and may have told a pregnant employee to “kill it,” in regard to her unborn child. On CBS This Morning, Monday, the show allowed a scant 15 seconds to the developing story (out of two hours).
Though the apparent attempt to rundown multiple Trump supporters registering voters in Florida happened Saturday afternoon, and drew outrage from both of the state’s senators and President Trump himself, the evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC completely ignored the vicious attack. Come Sunday morning, only NBC’s Sunday Today thought it was worth some airtime, but only 25-seconds worth.
Just like their cable news peers, ABC chose to complain about President Trump’s State of the Union address last night, instead of celebrate it. On Good Morning America Wednesday, anchor George Stephanopoulos and chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl recounted the national address entirely from the perspective of the Democrats, serving up judgement only for President Trump and Republicans while seeming to justify Democrats’ rude outbursts and showboating.
