Good Morning America
On Thursday, the network morning shows applauded liberal celebrities joining Democratic candidates on the campaign trail days before the midterm elections, cheering on the “surge of star power.” While mentions were made of President Trump and other top Republicans barnstorming the country, reporters were clearly more enamored with Hollywood jumping into the race on behalf of the other side of the aisle.
In an exclusive interview with President Trump broadcasted on Thursday’s Good Morning America, White House correspondent Jonathan Karl badgered the president on just about every issue, from the illegal alien caravan to the midterms. Starting with the caravan, anchor George Stephanopoulos led into the interview by mocking the president’s call to send thousands of troops to the border.
On Thursday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s entertainment contributor Chris Connelly sat down with singer and actress Barbra Streisand to fawn over her new anti-Trump album. Connelly and the rest of the ABC team fangirled over the stridently liberal entertainer, giving her plenty of time to air her grievances against the president, with less than a week before the midterms.
Counting down to the midterm elections one week away, on Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America offered a report that labeled Republicans as “combative” while hailing Democrats for “stressing unity.” No mention was made of any of the recent incendiary comments from prominent Democrats on the campaign trail.
It's hypocrisy of a very dangerous variety. For a week, the liberal media have been railing against President Trump, claiming he was the one responsible for the violence and death in recent days. Yet when the Volusia County Florida Republican Party headquarters was sprayed with bullets Sunday night, none of the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) cared enough to mention it during their Monday news programs.
On Thursday night and Friday morning, ABC and NBC newscasts refused to cover not one but two bad stories for liberal media darling and attorney Michael Avenatti as Republican Senator Chuck Grassley (IA) requested the Department of Justice investigate Avenatti and Kavanaugh accuser Julie Swetnick for their behavior during the confirmation fight.
On Thursday, the network morning shows were aghast that President Trump would accuse the news media of incivility and divisiveness, even as they repeatedly suggested that his rhetoric was to blame for mail bombs being sent to prominent Democrats. Reporters ignored recent polling that found people across the political spectrum agreed that the press was one of the main sources of division in the country.
This week, Texas Secretary of State Rolando Pablos confirmed that state Attorney General Ken Paxton was looking into a case where the state Democratic Party allegedly sent out mailers to noncitizens requesting they register to vote with documents that had the citizenship box checked off. Instead of covering this case (which had been known about since late last week) both ABC News and CBS News pushed Democratic claims of voter suppression in Georgia by the GOP.
Tuesday morning the three networks continued their fawning coverage of the thousands of illegal aliens heading to the U.S./Mexico border while ABC and NBC spent additional time worrying that President Trump’s “threats” about the caravan would motivate Republican voters to the polls.
In a series of truly mind-boggling reports on Monday, all three network morning shows bizarrely accused the Trump administration of considering “changing the definition of gender” by simply reversing Obama-era regulations that actually did change the definition of gender by abandoning the scientific and biological meaning of the term.
On Monday, all three broadcast network morning shows offered a heroic portrayal of the caravan of thousands of illegal immigrants heading to the U.S. border from Central America. Anchors and correspondents were particularly thrilled by the group “defying” President Trump’s demand that they turn back, being “undeterred” from “their mission to get to America.”
On Friday, far-left comedian Amy Schumer announced that the reason no one would be seeing her in Super Bowl ads next year was that she was boycotting on behalf of mediocre quarterback Colin Kaepernick. During Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s liberal anchors celebrated Schumer’s decision and were interested in seeing if her “peer pressure” would cause a larger “celebrity boycott” of commercials and the halftime show.
