Good Morning America
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.
On Friday, all three network morning shows were quick to seize on Democratic talking points slamming the U.S. killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani as “reckless” and even “illegal.” It all came amid media hand-wringing over the air strike in which journalists labeled the brutal murderer “iconic” and “inspirational.”
On Thursday, the NBC and ABC morning shows rang in the new year by hyping only Republican senators being politically “vulnerable” on impeachment and “potential breaks in the GOP ranks.” There was no discussion of Democratic lawmakers paying a political price for supporting the radical action against President Trump and the coverage even seemed to place them in the driver’s seat of the proceedings despite being in the minority.
2019 was another year of smashing success for the NewsBusters team as we had umpteen media stories to cover throughout the year, whether it was the Jussie Smollett debacle, the Mueller Report, impeachment, 2020 debates, and more online censorship. While it may seem repetitive, NewsBusters would be nowhere near what its become since its inception in 2005 without the support of beloved readers (and adversaries) who view us as essential reading.
No, this is not a joke or an attempt at rick-rolling. The Monday morning broadcast network newscasts actually put away their usual gun control talking points after a mass shooting and emphasized how armed citizens prevented a deadly scene from becoming worse. In this case, it was Sunday’s attack on West Freeway Church of Christ outside Fort Worth, Texas.
On Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden vowed to not comply with any subpoena to testify in the Senate’s impeachment trial of President Trump. Such an action could be classified as obstruction of Congress, the same thing Trump was being impeached for. Biden began to backpedal over the weekend and he was aided in that effort by ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Sunday Today. Both used Biden’s “promise” to appoint former President Barack Obama to the Supreme Court as a smokescreen.
When it comes to the leftist media, their disdain for and ignorance towards Christians is palpable. Unless of course, they stumble upon a Christian with liberal positions because that way they can be utilized as a tool to suit their political narrative. If you fit the bill, may the love fest commence! ABC was the latest network guilty of this nauseating posturing.
Talk about being tone deaf and having no sense of self awareness. George Stephanopoulos, a former top aide to impeached President Bill Clinton, on Thursday demanded to know about the “indelible mark” left by the Democratic effort to impeach Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America both worked to portray House Democrats backing impeachment as courageous politicians “putting principle before politics” rather than as partisans trying to appease the far left of their party.
Fired FBI Director James Comey had his feet held to the fire on Fox News Sunday by anchor Chris Wallace, who grilled him on the FBI’s misconduct during the Russia probe. Despite Comey’s admission that the FBI mislead the FISA court in their applications to spy on a Trump campaign staffer, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) refused to cover Comey’s comments on their flagship morning and evening news programs between Sunday and Monday evenings.
CBS News and NBC News were the respective former homes of serial sexual harassers Charlie Rose and Matt Lauer, before they were exposed publically. Those networks were now ignoring the three sexual harassment lawsuits leveled against Bloomberg L.P., the financial and media company founded by 2020 Democratic candidate Michael Bloomberg. Credit where it’s due, ABC News had aired their investigative report on the matter during their Good Morning America and World News Tonight flagship programs on Monday.
On Monday, the network morning shows seized on laughable Democratic spin accusing Senate Republicans of “failing to be impartial jurors” in the upcoming impeachment trial of President Trump. This from the same media that hasn’t expressed any concern over Democratic senators running for president while presiding over the impeachment of the Republican incumbent they’re vying to replace.
