Good Morning America
Britain was just hours away from finding out the results of its latest Brexit-contested prime ministers race on Thursday. Both ABC and CBS covered the fight between Conservative Boris Johnson and far-left Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. But CBS ignored the ugly charges of anti-Semitism that have followed Corbyn and his party. On ABC’s Good Morning America, reporter James Longman at least noted, “Opposition Jeremy Corbyn has had his own issues, dogged by allegations of anti-Semitism in his Labour Party and unwilling to make public his own position on Brexit.”
After repeatedly behaving like PR agents for parent company Disney over recent weeks, on Wednesday, the hosts of ABC’s Good Morning America took the corporate shilling to a new level as they applauded Time magazine for naming their “great leader,” Disney CEO Bob Iger, the Business Person of the Year.
All three networks spent time Wednesday hyping radical Swedish teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg being honored by Time Magazine today with their “Person of the Year” award. Journalists from ABC, NBC, and CBS all praised the “deserving” “good choice” and touted the teen “taking on” world leaders while “inspiring” other teens to become climate evangelists.
Good Morning America on Monday spun Katie Hill, a California Democrat who resigned in the wake of a bizarre sex scandal, as a victim of bullying. The story by reporter Linsey Davis never mentioned her political affiliation and tried to mislead viewers into believing Hill was smeared.
You can be sure, if Republicans were holding an impeachment trial of a Democratic president, during an election year, the liberal media would be demanding every GOP senator running against the president recuse themselves from the proceedings. But with five Democratic senators still in the 2020 race, the conflict of interest was almost never mentioned. ABC came close on Sunday, but chief anchor George Stephanopoulos argued that the trial would be a time for them to shine.
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows were completely enthralled with Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee releasing a partisan report calling for the impeachment of President Trump. Despite the obvious one-sided nature of the 300-page document, anchors on NBC, ABC, and CBS led their respective broadcasts by touting the report as “damning,” “blistering,” and representing “impeachment’s new phase.”
In back-to-back days (Monday and Tuesday), the Supreme Court handed President Trump victories when it came to protecting his coveted tax returns. But apparently, good news for Trump meant no news at all because the broadcast networks largely ignored the victories during their flagship morning and evening newscasts. Only the Tuesday edition of ABC’s Good Morning America noted the President’s win from the day before.
On Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued the liberal media’s attempt to force-feed the American people every twist and turn of the left’s attempt to remove President Donald Trump from office. Following up on their Monday night celebrations that a federal judge ordered former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify before Congress, the ABC and NBC newscasts boasted about this new “blow” and “scathing judgement.”
For all the liberal smears against Fox News claiming they’re “state-run media,” it has become clear that's exactly what Bloomberg News would become if former Mayor Michael Bloomberg wins in 2020. While ABC, CBS, and NBC spent Sunday evening and Monday hyping the billionaire’s new presidential campaign, they ignored how Bloomberg News had been ordered to not investigate their owner or his Democratic opponents, and to keep the pressure on President Trump. Some might argue it was the weaponization of a media outlet for personal gain.
The three network morning shows on Monday hyped the entry of Michael Bloomberg into the 2020 race as a “moderate” who will take on other “moderates,” Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg. They also touted the ex-New York Mayor’s former Republican status. On CBS This Morning, correspondent Ed O’Keefe parroted centrist talking points: “After initially ruling out a run earlier this year, Bloomberg is officially in, running as a moderate Democrat.”
In the aftermath of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's announcement that the Donald Trump administration was essentially reversing the Barack Obama policy of declaring Israeli settlements as illegal, most of the dominant media have inaccurately claimed that Trump has reversed "decades" or "40 years" of U.S. policy on the matter.
On Thursday, it was as if all three network morning shows were reading from the same liberal script as journalists on NBC, ABC, and CBS all touted how “impeachment took center stage” during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate. In addition, all three networks eagerly seized on the Democratic contenders labeling President Trump a “criminal.”
