Good Morning America
As everyone already knew, Democrats were never going to be satisfied with a one week FBI investigation into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. As Friday draws nearer, journalists are aiding desperate Democrats, who see that Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations will not hold water, in coming up with a new strategy of how they will block Kavanaugh’s confirmation; namely, that he allegedly lied under oath. On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos promoted that last ditch effort in his interview with one of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse.
Broadcast news networks ABC, CBS, and NBC continue to hammer away at the sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Monday, using the seventh FBI inquiry into Kavanaugh’s past as the latest news hook to keep the Supreme Court nominee’s name in the headlines.
Monday morning ABC and CBS reported on the two women who cornered Republican Senator Jeff Flake on an elevator as he was going to the Judiciary Committee vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh. While CBS This Morning briefly mentioned one of these women, Ana Maria Archila, was a liberal activist, ABC’s Good Morning America completely avoided that fact. Both networks joined the rest of the media in hailing Archila as a “hero” and “survivor” instead of a partisan with a politically motivated agenda.
The FBI investigation into the sexual harassment allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh was only a couple days old and the liberal media already had the heavy equipment out to dig up the goalpost. Despite spending roughly a week comparing Kavanaugh’s confirmation to that of Justice Clarence Thomas and touting the speedy FBI investigation then, Sunday’s Good Morning America worried it was “overly restricted”. They were also eager to know what happens if Kavanaugh was the one caught lying.
Friday morning on Good Morning America, the ABC panel assembled exploded while discussing yesterday’s Senate hearing over Judge Brett Kavanaugh and what should happen going forward. Contributor and former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie butted heads with ABC legal analyst and The View co-host Sunny Hostin as she parroted the Democrats’ line that an FBI investigation was needed before Kavanaugh could be voted on by the Senate.
After spending four reports on the sexual assault allegations surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Wednesday, ABC continued trying to elevate the accusers and shame the conservative judge in a fifth report on Good Morning America, where high schoolers lectured adults for not “believing the women” who’ve raised dubious and discounted claims about Kavanaugh.
During the twelve days since Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein publicly announced the existence of an unspecified allegation against Brett Kavanaugh, the ABC, CBS and NBC morning and evening news shows have spent nearly six hours (344 minutes) regurgitating various unproved allegations against the Supreme Court nominee. But only a tiny percentage of that coverage — a measly eight percent — has been devoted to Kavanaugh’s denials and the lack of corroboration for his accusers’ accounts.
In the 1990s, George Stephanopoulos was instrumental in undermining the sexual abuse claims against his then-boss, Bill Clinton. Now, he thinks women should be believed. This is quite a change for the now-Good Morning America co-host who talked to Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday about Brett Kavanaugh.
On Monday’s network morning shows, the co-authors of The New Yorker’s questionable hit piece against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh were surprisingly grilled by anchors on the NBC, ABC, and CBS broadcasts. Both Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow were peppered with challenging questions about the veracity of Deborah Ramirez’s sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh and even asked to defend their own journalistic standards.
On Thursday morning, as the broadcast networks all seized on Democratic demands for an FBI investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault claims against Brett Kavanaugh, reporters on NBC, ABC, and CBS were quick to point to the Bureau’s investigation of Anita Hill’s sexual harassment claims against Clarence Thomas in 1991. However, none of the supposed journalists could seem to remember that the outcome of that inquiry was inconclusive.
During an exclusive softball interview with Anita Hill on Wednesday’s Good Morning America, co-host George Stephanopoulos teed her up to accuse Senate Republicans of trying to intimidate or “destroy” Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser by inviting Christine Blasey Ford to testify at a Judiciary Committee hearing on Monday.
George Stephanopoulos, who attempted to destroy sexual abuse accusers of Bill Clinton, is worried about people not believing the accuser of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The former Clinton White House operative turned Good Morning America co-host on Tuesday fretted, “... To vote for Kavanaugh, you’re going to have to, at some level, be saying, ‘She’s not telling the truth.’”
