On the Friday broadcast network evening newscasts, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News played the role of faithful PR representatives for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), giving legitimacy and life to a DNC lawsuit seeking to somehow avenge their 2016 election losses and lay blame on, among others, the Russian government.
After news broke Thursday afternoon that the FBI Inspector General was recommending the Justice Department file criminal charges against the Bureau’s fired deputy director, Andrew McCabe, NBC Nightly News completely ignored the major development. On Friday, NBC’s Today show wasn’t much better, only managing nine seconds of coverage to the story, just a single sentence.
NBC’s comedy Superstore joined the ranks of other Hollywood shows that devalue unborn human life, likening a preborn baby to a “horrible parasite eating and pissing inside” of the surrogate mother and comparing him/her to a “bag of garbage” who should “figure out its own gender.”
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s retirement went from bad to worse on Thursday as the Bureau’s Inspector General brought his case to federal prosecutors with a criminal referral. McCabe was fired in March after an IG investigation found he had lied to investigators about leaks to the press during the Clinton e-mail investigation. When it came to reporting the damning news that evening, NBC Nightly News ignored revelation all together while ABC and CBS gave it less time than his firing.
The communist government of Cuba held their sham election for a new leader on Wednesday after President Raul Castro stepped down to make way for Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel to take the reins. The news of the transition broke early that morning, but both ABC and NBC appeared too lazy to even give it a simple brief on their morning and evening broadcasts. CBS and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo all ran reports on the transition.
Appearing on Wednesday’s NBC Today show to promote the Tribecca Film Festival, actor Robert De Niro also happily discussed his cameo on Saturday Night Live portraying Special Counsel Robert Mueller, even hoping for future skits where he could arrest Donald Trump and throw him jail.
NBC anchor Savannah Guthrie was ready to convict Donald Trump of criminal wrongdoing on Wednesday’s Today show, as she interviewed former FBI Director James Comey. However, she worried that the fired law enforcement official’s tell-all book might “mess up” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s supposedly inevitable “prosecution” of the President.
They’re on a roll and they can’t be stopped! NBC’s ultra-liberal high school drama Rise is in its sixth week and they aren't showing any signs of slowing down their obvious leftist agenda.
Appearing on Wednesday’s Today show to reflect on the life of Barbara Bush, NBC Senior Correspondent Tom Brokaw bizarrely noted how much she supposedly “really didn’t like” current Energy Secretary and former Texas Governor Rick Perry, while recalling a private conversation with the former First Lady years earlier.
In a remarks late Tuesday afternoon, President Trump revealed the United States was in high-level talks directly with the North Korean government and had given the okay for South Korea to negotiate an official end to the decades-long state of war. These were major developments on the world stage but the evening broadcasts of ABC, CBS and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo flat out ignored them. Only NBC Nightly News thought it was important enough to inform their viewers about.
On Monday's CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon devoted two segments totaling more than 13 minutes to the case of rapper Meek Mill going back to prison because of parole violations. The show glossed over Mill repeatedly violating probation over the past decade, which included the rapper failing drug tests over and over again. And last week, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt similarly downplayed Mill's parole violations, and did not mention the repeated drug test failures from the parole period at all.
During an otherwise glowing profile on Tuesday’s NBC Today show of New Zealand’s newly-elected Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, correspondent Cynthia McFadden pressed the pregnant 37-year-old socialist leader on whether she was the “Donald Trump of New Zealand” on the issue of immigration. Ardern angrily denied the charge.
