With the liberal media joining Democrats in the ongoing battle to save DACA and for no border wall, CBS and NBC ignored the killing of Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson at the hands of a drunk-driving illegal immigrant during their popular morning and evening shows Monday. Instead, CBS Evening News hyped Space X launching a Tesla Roadster into space and NBC Nightly News whined about how cold the WINTER Olympics were going to be.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed Monday roughly 1,100 points down after dropping by nearly 1,600. The percentage lost was not record-setting, but that didn’t stop the liberal media from slapping President Trump with it since he often touted the markets as a sign his policies were working. The Big Three networks led their evening newscasts with the story. NBC’s stood out as the most panicked and while CBS aimed to quell fears, they also knocked Trump for not noting it in a speech about tax cuts.
All three networks on Monday broke in with special reports that the stock market plummeted over 1000 points. Yet, it was ABC that spun the bad news as time for Donald Trump to take ownership of the stock market. NBC, which hasn’t exactly promoted the idea that Trump had anything to do with last year’s gains, chided, “In the past, presidents have tried to shy away for taking too much credit for stock market games because on the flip side there's the possibility you own the losses too.”
Coke is woke, and gosh darn it, we’ve all got to know about it! Coca Cola’s new ad, “The Wonder of Us,” aired during Super Bowl LII. The 60-second spot immediately came out out with the usual diversity happy talk. “Better world, bridging continents, yadda yadda.” However, this time Coca Cola went a little further in terms of diversification, providing a not so subtle subtle nod to the trannie trend, er, ‘non-binary’ community.
“Just because it’s biased, doesn’t mean it’s not true.” That was the assessment from Good Morning America journalists and analysts on Saturday while discussing the intelligence memo released on Friday. Guest Matt Dowd touted the already tired “Al Capone vault” comparison.
When the Dow Jones Industrial Average “nosedived” by nearly 666 points on Feb. 2, it got plenty of network attention. In fact, it got more coverage than the two huge Dow milestones that preceded it — combined.
Although that one-day selloff was a 2.5 percent drop which followed huge gains, the networks emphasized the “worst week for stocks in two years.” ABC World News Tonight with David Muir, NBC Nightly News and CBS Evening News spent a combined 251 seconds on Feb. 2, covering the markets. Those same three shows spent about 33 percent more time on the selloff than on two major milestones during the prolonged stock market rally.
Trying to keep up with the left-wing activism of his late-night competitors Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, during a live edition of NBC’s Tonight Show after the Super Bowl, host Jimmy Fallon put new words to Bob Dylan’s 1964 song Times They Are A Changin’ in order to attack Donald Trump and hail the liberal media.
Since the release of the bombshell House Intelligence Committee memo detailing alleged misconduct by the FBI and the DOJ to obtain warrants through a FISA court, the liberal media have been focused on combating President Trump and the GOP for releasing the memo instead of the contents within it. A clear demonstration of this occurred during NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday where moderator Chuck Todd was receptive to attacks against the memo but aggressively pushed back against supporters.
Some quotes featured in This Week in Media Bias History are so awful, they end up becoming infamous. This edition has one of those quotes. On January 29, 2015, NBC journalist Ayman Mohyeldin smeared Chris Kyle, the late Navy SEAL portrayed in the film American Sniper. He slimed Kyle as a “racist” who went on "killing sprees.” The quote would go on to win the Media Research Center’s 2015 “DisHonors” award.
Following an exhausting day of the liberal media being in a constant state of panic after the release of the Republican House Intelligence Committee memo, Friday’s NBC Nightly News pulled its weight in not emphasizing the memo’s contents but how the “politically-charged” “partisan grenade” has some claiming that this will trigger “a constitutional crisis.”
Since the House Intelligence Committee, chaired by Congressman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), voted on Monday to release a memo detailing alleged misconduct and legal abuses by the FBI, the three major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) have been acting like the mouthpiece for the Democratic Party. Between January 29, when the vote was held, and February 1, the networks dedicated roughly three and a half times the coverage to worries about releasing the memo than the allegations against the FBI than its purported contents.
