Good Morning America
The big three networks gave just 28 seconds Friday night and Saturday morning to the largest pro-life annual march in the nation’s capital, this year. While it’s not out of the ordinary for the media to ignore this mammoth event that flies in the face of their liberal narrative on abortion, it is notable that they would hold a near blackout of the event even when President Trump became the first sitting President to attend in the 47 year history of the march.
On Tuesday, as the political PR battle ahead of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump began, ABC’s Good Morning America amplified complaints from Democrats that the process was “a cover-up and national disgrace” because of the rules outlined by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
All three networks were eager to equate gun rights advocates to neo-Nazis on Monday morning’s broadcasts. While tens of thousands of people are expected to arrive at Virginia’s Capitol building this afternoon to protest the state’s proposed anti-gun laws, reporters from ABC, NBC and CBS tried to compare the Second Amendment rally to the much smaller rally in Charlottesville in 2017 attended by white nationalists and counter-protesters that resulted in violence and one person being killed.
On Thursday and Friday, all three broadcast networks eagerly joined Virginia Democrats in attempting to smear gun rights advocates in the commonwealth as violent, racist terrorists who were plotting “a rerun of the deadly Charlottesville protests.” Reporters seized on Governor Ralph Northam declaring a “state of emergency” ahead of a pro-Second Amendment rally at the statehouse in Richmond.
Last Tuesday (January 7), it was announced that Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann would settle his lawsuit with the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN for an undisclosed amount after they tried to ruin his life last year. Luckily for CNN, they’ve all but ignored this on-air (save 29 seconds from Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources) and had help with blackouts from ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and NBC. In contrast, the Fox News Channel spent 12 minutes and 56 seconds on the settlement.
As the Iranian people rose up to protest the brutal totalitarian regime ruling their country, on Monday, ABC’s chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz appeared on Good Morning America and lamented that the demonstrations were evidence of “Iran’s unity shattered,” only a week after she hailed the “massive and emotional” crowds that turned out to mourn terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.
Overnight, students of Iran’s polytechnic university in Tehran put their lives on the line by taking to the streets to call for an end to the radical regime ruling the country. It was a massive blow to the liberal media’s false narrative that the U.S. killing of General Qasem Soleimani somehow “united” Iranians. To further prove their initials stood for Ayatollah Broadcasting Company, the Sunday edition of ABC’s Good Morning America downplayed the protests as just the wild emotional throws of a people, even spending more time on frivolous nonsense such as British royal family and the Oscars.
During interviews with all three broadcast networks on Wednesday and Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence was confronted with hostile interrogations over the U.S. killing of Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani. In sharp contrast, NBC, ABC, and CBS have all treated Iran’s Foreign Minister and chief propagandist Mohammad Zarif to softball exchanges in which his anti-American pronouncements have largely gone unchallenged.
Journalists from ABC and CBS eagerly raced over to Iran to toss softballs to a top government official. They also wondered when the country will strike back at the United States. Good Morning America’s Martha Raddatz on Tuesday highlighted the “hundreds of thousands of mourners” “paying their respects” to the dead terrorist, Qasem Soleimani.
Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais delivered a blistering, brutal attack on liberal Hollywood, Sunday night, bringing up awkward topics like covering for Harvey Weinstein. All three morning shows covered the Globes on Monday, but they allowed just seconds to the biting commentary that Gervais served up to the not-so-pleased crowd. CBS This Morning included just 7 seconds to playing the words the comedian actually said. NBC’s Today barely beat that, managing a meager 15 seconds of Gervais. Good Morning America offered the most, 47 seconds of the entertainer’s commentary.
ABC News spent another morning sympathizing with our enemies on Monday’s Good Morning America. This time, it was correspondent Martha Raddatz’s turn to be awestruck by the anti-American protests in Iran over the U.S. drone strike-kill of General Qasem Soleimani, last week. Instead of praising the death of a man who ordered the murder and torture of countless American soldiers, Raddatz sided with the Iranians, touting the “mourning” over their “revered” military leader while worrying that Iran would now seek “revenge” on the United States.
ABC News kicked off Sunday’s Good Morning America by marveling at the sea of mourners in the streets of Iran and hyping the Iranian politicians who gathered on the floor of their legislature to chant “death to America;” in the wake of the U.S. airstrike that killed Iranian general, Qasem Soleimani on Thursday.
