Despite the fact that there has been no resolution to any of the scandals surrounding the three Democrats who sit atop Virginia's government, ABC, CBS and NBC have essentially dropped the stories from their flagship newscasts. From February 1-7, ABC, CBS, and NBC combined for 116 minutes and 19 seconds and then 96 minutes and 12 seconds from February 8-14, but since then, there have only been eight minutes and eight seconds devoted to the Virginia officeholders between February 15's CBS This Morning and February 19's Good Morning America.
Phony racially-motivated attacks and Democrats being caught in blackface were just some of the controversies that liberal journalists and celerities actually blamed on Donald Trump and his Wall-endorsing, red hat-wearing, supporters this past month.
After news broke that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be delivering his final Russia investigation report to Attorney General William Barr in the coming days, on Thursday, NBC’s Today show and CBS This Morning promised viewers that the investigation would continue regardless of Mueller’s findings.
Appearing as a guest on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, MSNBC contributor and frequent Morning Joe guest Donny Deutsch accused President Donald Trump of racism as he cited the President's history of promoting the birther conspiracy theory against former President Barack Obama. Deutsch notably has his own checkered past on race since he once uttered a racial epithet on national television as he trashed Republican Senator Marco Rubio.
Appearing on the 9:00 a.m. ET hour of Thursday’s Today show, Sunday Today anchor Willie Geist warned his media colleagues against “rooting for an outcome” in a story as they discussed actor Jussie Smollett being arrested for filing a false police report about a fictitious assault by Trump supporters.
To watch network television these days, a viewer would think that angry, violent white nationalists are lurking everywhere. It’s certainly a narrative that Hollywood pushes in Trump’s America. The latest fictional hate crime to take place in Chicago occurs in the February 20 episode of Chicago Med titled “We Hold These Truths.”
On Wednesday morning, only NBC’s Today show mentioned lawyers for Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann filing a lawsuit against the Washington Post for the liberal newspaper’s defamatory coverage of him following false reports that Sandmann and his classmates were the instigators of a confrontation with a Native American activist at the Lincoln Memorial in January.
Over the weekend, NBC ran a couple of noteworthy reports on the issue of border security. One focused almost entirely on locals near the border who are complaining about a possible wall, while the other report, as it devoted attention to both sides of the issue, also showed a border security activist being asked by reporter Morgan Radford to respond to critics who accuse him of being a "racist" who wants to "hunt" Mexicans.
The left would expect mere mortals to understand that as opposed to them, it rises above the rumor-mongering and misinformation of the social media. As with so much else regarding the left, that's nonsense. They cut, paste, and amplify the unsubstantiated ardor of liberal Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram at will -- if it advances the narrative. See the case of Jussie Smollett, actor/singer in the Fox hip-hop drama Empire.
The 77-year-old democratic socialist from Vermont, Senator Bernie Sanders, threw his hat into the 2020 presidential race on Tuesday. And while they weren’t necessarily “feeling the Bern”, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News touted his entrance and wondered how far left his policies have pulled the Democratic Party.
Sunday's NBC Nightly News ran the kind of pro-gun story one rarely sees in the dominant media as a full report was devoted to the issue of churches getting some of its members to train and bring guns with them for security.
Amid the collapse of actor Jussie Smollett’s hate crime claims, Washington Post author Nana Efua Mumford worried in a February 17 piece that “the incident would be touted as proof that there is a leftist conspiracy to cast Trump supporters as violent, murderous racists.” But regardless of what reporters’ intentions were, their coverage of Smollett over the last two weeks constituted a prolonged word association exercise which linked the President’s 2016 campaign slogan to a (fictitious) hate crime.
