In a highly anticipated ceremony on Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order directing the government to take action in protecting free speech on college campuses. It wasn’t something that enthused the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and, NBC) so they omitted it from their evening broadcasts. Instead, they all cheered on New Zealand for their swift movement in banning so-called “assault weapons”. So, that’s two rights the liberal media seemingly don’t like.
President Trump stood firm with Israel again on Thursday when he announced on Twitter that the United States was going to recognize their sovereignty over the Golan Heights. That didn’t sit well with the liberal American broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC), who decried the historic move as just a political stunt on their evening newscasts.
All three networks spent Thursday morning gushing in favor of New Zealand’s new gun ban, touting that it had “widespread, bipartisan support” with “very little opposition.” ABC, NBC and CBS also spent time shaming the U.S. for not adopting a similar buyback measure.
“ISIS's reign of terror over nearly ten million people has come to an end,” CBS international correspondent Charlie D’Agata proudly announced during Wednesday’s CBS Evening News. The reports came as President Trump told the press that the last remnants of the terrorist group should be wiped out by tonight. It was great news that got little airtime on ABC’s World News Tonight, where anchor David Muir sounded skeptical of the President.
In addition to CNN’s disgraceful town hall event following the Parkland shooting being celebrated by the Norman Lear Center’s annual Cronkite Awards, NBC News received not one, but two honors for its biased reporting on illegal immigration and climate change in the past year.
On Tuesday night, a new drama, The Village, about the multi-ethnic, multi-generational residents of an apartment building in Brooklyn, premiered on NBC. The previews promised to deliver more of what we love from heartwarming shows like This Us, but the pilot warned that we are probably going to see more of what we don’t when it came swinging out of the gate on the controversial topics of immigration and abortion.
It was a meeting worth taking note of, not just because President Trump was meeting with the so-called “Trump of the Tropics” but because of what it could mean for both countries going forward, and for dealing with the crisis in Venezuela. But the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were apparently bored by Trump’s Tuesday meeting with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and ignored it altogether.
Reporting for NBC’s Today show on Tuesday, correspondent Kristen Welker touted New Jersey Senator and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker being hit with a supposedly “tough question” during an interview with MSNBC host Chris Matthews that aired on Monday night’s Hardball. In reality, a clip of the alleged grilling showed Matthews urging Booker to call President Trump a “racist.”
On Monday, while both CBS This Morning and ABC’s Good Morning America managed to at least mention Beto O’Rourke receiving greater “scrutiny” and making “gaffes” over the weekend, NBC’s Today show skipped the Democratic presidential candidate’s unflattering stumbles in favor of gushing over his “eye-popping” fundraising numbers.
At another Democratic Party gathering over the weekend, former Vice President Joe Biden had another slip of the tongue and possibly revealing his 2020 candidacy, saying he had “the most progressive record for anybody running [for president]." Of course, the liberals at ABC and NBC got excited and hyped it up during their Sunday morning news broadcasts.
On Friday evening, the NBC Nightly News caught up with CNN in highlighting a couple of teenage environmental activists who are promoting an alarmist agenda against global warming while encouraging students to skip school to pressure adults into taking action on the issue. The CBS Evening News also gave the protests a 17-second brief.
On Thursday and Friday, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today show celebrated left-wing student activists around the world preparing to walk out of their classrooms to “demand action on climate change.” The CBS report took a particularly dark turn as correspondent Tony Dokoupil warned of “a future that might not even exist” for the young protesters.
