On Monday morning, Time Magazine released its top ten “shortlist” ahead of the Tuesday reveal for its annual “Person of the Year” issue and many of the nominees came as no surprise. Whether it was the March for Our Lives students or Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, it was a liberal list made in heaven.
The very same day stock market gyrations captured the media’s focus, government agencies announced a decline in the U.S. poverty rate and an increase in household net worth.
But the networks skipped any and all good economic news on Dec. 6, and only made room that night for negative economic stories about Wall Street and the market’s “wild ride.” The networks also showed a preference for bad news as markets were climbing, often skipping record highs in 2017 and early 2018.
The liberal media grew increasingly excited at the prospects of impeaching President Trump over the weekend. So much so, that some were outright encouraging Democrats to pursue it. During an appearance on Sunday’s Meet the Press, Princeton University professor Eddie Glaude Jr. warned Democrats that if they didn’t impeach Trump, then they’ll be punished by their radical liberal base.
According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration.
On Friday evening, the NBC Nightly News took the time to devote an entire story to the case of a Michigan woman who survived a near-death experience which illustrates that doctors can sometimes make the wrong diagnosis and give up on comatose patients too soon.
Appearing as a panel member on Saturday's Up with David Gura on MSNBC, NBC contributor and frequent Meet the Press panelist Heather McGhee gave signs of being far inside the liberal bubble when she lamented that Attorney General nominee Bill Barr has a history of wanting to lock up more criminals as she claimed that currently "the entire country is very excited" about reducing the number of prison inmates.
She also asserted that pro-life opposition to Roe vs Wade is "far outside of the mainstream" even though polling suggests significant restrictions on abortion are supported by most Americans.
As the broadcast networks this week gave attention to the story of an American tourist from Florida, Carla Stefaniak, who went missing during a trip to Costa Rica and then was found murdered there, all three failed to inform viewers that the murder suspect, a Nicaraguan national, is in an illegal immigrant. By contrast, Fox and Friends did take the time to note that he was in the country illegally.
Participating in a panel discussion for the Recode Decode podcast with fellow NBC News colleagues Chuck Todd and Hallie Jackson, on Wednesday, Andrea Mitchell told host Kara Swisher that two of the reasons for Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 presidential election were “gaslighting” from the Trump campaign and “the unfairness of the media.”
Thursday night, NBC's Superstore proved to us once again that they are super liberal with an illegal immigration plotline. Did I say illegal? Excuse me for not using the politically correct term “undocumented” that was littered throughout the episode as part of an effort to make it seem less wrong.
With the nation still in mourning from the passing of former President George H.W. Bush, NBC spent six minutes, 19 seconds during their Thursday evening broadcast on stories that amounted to bad news for President Trump and/or the Republican Party before they finally got around to mentioning the final day of the funeral services.
On Wednesday's Late Night with Seth Meyers, aired early Thursday, NBC host Meyers provided far-left British journalist Mehdi Hasan an unchallenged forum to excoriate former President George H.W. Bush for the deaths of Iraqis and Panamanians, as well as the Willie Horton campaign issue and Bush's reaction to the AIDS epidemic.
In 24-hours, French President Emmanuel Macron went from postponing his widely hated carbon tax on fuel and utilities to completely abandoning it. It’s yet another loss for liberal climate change policies that oppress and strip money from hard-working people. Despite this momentous defeat, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were dead silent when Macron went from suspending the measure on Tuesday and abandoning it on Wednesday.
