Good Morning America
On Friday, all three network morning shows rushed to dismiss the newly revealed criminal investigation into the origins of the Russia probe as nothing more than “political revenge” against President Trump’s “enemies.” Hosts and correspondents dutifully stuck to Democratic Party talking points trashing the inquiry, coming just shy of labeling it a “witch hunt.”
While ABC, CBS, and NBC were continuing to push for President Trump’s impeachment during their Monday newscasts, they didn’t care to mention that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg aided the presidential campaign of South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg by recommending some people to hire. A simple thing that the liberal media would likely treat as an administration rocking scandal if it involved the Trump campaign.
On Thursday, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows all quickly accepted talking points from House Democrats that President Trump suffered a “meltdown” during a White House meeting with them on Wednesday afternoon. While some administration push-back was included in the coverage, reporters on all three networks laid blame for the Democrats walking out of that meeting solely on the President.
I wrote the book on the Obama administration’s “Culture of Corruption” 10 years ago, including a thick and sordid chapter on the Beltway swamp creatures of the Biden family. See-no-evil liberals scoffed at my catalogue of back-scratching, shady Delaware deals and Wall Street funny money: What nepotism? What ethical lapses? What corruption? Now, Hunter Biden himself, the youngest son of former Vice President and Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden, finally admitted this week what Daddy's pooh-poohing pals have long (publicly) denied: “I don't think that there's a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn't Biden,” Hunter confessed on ABC's “Good Morning America” Tuesday.
Over 72-hours. It has been over 72-hours since ABC’s World News Tonight first falsely claimed a special event at a gun range in Kentucky was footage of a Turkish attack on civilian Kurds in northern Syria. And in that 72-hours, the network had rejected all calls for an on-air correction, apology, and explanation to their viewers as to how the misinformation made it through their supposedly rigorous vetting process.
In the midst of covering Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, on Wednesday, all three network morning shows excitedly shared the news that far-left New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and radical Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar would be endorsing socialist Senator Bernie Sanders for President. None of the extreme views or scandals of either left-wing lawmaker were mentioned.
On Wednesday, ABC’s Good Morning America hyped an odd highlight from Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, hailing New Jersey Senator Cory Booker for denouncing a question to rival Joe Biden about Hunter Biden’s suspicious foreign business dealings.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows presented an united front while praising 2020 Democratic candidates for “showing a united front against President Trump” during Tuesday night’s presidential debate. Reporters eagerly touted how all 12 contenders on stage supported impeachment and denounced Trump.
During a panel discussion about the 2020 campaign on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning, hosts and political analysts agreed that Hunter Biden’s interview with ABC News wasn’t doing his father’s presidential candidacy any favors and might even give President Trump more ammunition against Joe Biden.
Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, gave an exclusive interview to ABC’s Amy Robach Tuesday, excerpts of which were shown on Good Morning America. Robach surprisingly held Biden’s feet to the fire over his cushy job with a Ukranian gas company while his father was Vice President, for a large part of the interview. However, that dissolved into a gooey sympathy piece about how mean President Trump was hurting Biden’s sobriety, finally culminating with Biden crying on camera about how much he loved America.
On Monday, ABC News got caught lying about having a video allegedly showing Turkish troops slaughtering Kurdish civilians in northern Syria, when, in fact, it was video from a gun range in Kentucky. Seemingly thinking a pair of weak apologies on Twitter were enough, the liberal broadcast network refused to correct the record and inform viewers on their journalistic malpractice during that evening’s World News Tonight.
Between Sunday night and Monday, the liberal media have been up in arms over a parody video using a scene from the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service to depict a fake President Trump committing violence against members of the news media and other opponents and while it's been thoroughly condemned, many in the liberal press showed little to no concern for parodies or threats of violence against the President himself.
