Remember how the previous episode of Midnight, Texas was a gore fest? Well the NBC show’s series finale is a gorefest with a political joke. It’s times like this someone really does need to make TV great again.
While MSNBC has been out to lunch on the Christmas night murder of Newman Police Cpl. Ronil Singh allegedly by an illegal alien, the broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC have surprisingly given this story heavy coverage to the tune of over 28 minutes over the last three days. Fortunately, the Sacramento Bee reported that an arrest has been made in Singh’s death, citing law enforcement officials as having told them that a suspect “was arrested in Bakersfield either Thursday night or Friday morning.”
Since news broke on Wednesday that a manhunt was under way for a man who murdered a California police officer, MSNBC has completely ignored it while CNN banished it to Thursday morning's Early Start show before picking up seven mentions on Friday while the broadcast networks and Fox News Channel have given it substantial attention. The story became even more significant on Thursday afternoon when it turned out the suspect is an illegal immigrant, which led to President Donald Trump bringing attention to the sad event via Twitter.
For the sixth straight day, liberal news outlets blew their racism whistles on Thursday at a referee who ordered black high school wrestler to cut his dreadlocks. Journalists on ABC, CBS, and NBC have pointed to the ensuing “outrage” on social media – always an effective barometer for determining the national importance of a story – as evidence that the horrific “incident” was caused by the referee’s unabashed racism.
In a stunning example of the liberal media’s hypocrisy, they showed off their ballet skills on Wednesday when they collectively pivoted from bashing President Trump for not spending Christmas with U.S. troops to bashing him for not visiting them sooner after he made a surprise trip to Al Asad Airbase in Iraq. During their evening news broadcasts, both CBS and NBC brought up criticism of the President for taking two years to travel to a war zone to visit troops.
On Tuesday's NBC Nightly News, the show devoted a full report to the story of a lesbian couple in Illinois whose gay pride flag was stolen from outside their home. Ironically, a couple of weeks ago when an apparently Muslim man on a Brooklyn subway train violently attacked a woman whom he mistook to be a lesbian, the same show did not find it newsworthy.
Overnight on Christmas and into the morning of December 26, dozens of news websites published articles pronouncing that Donald Trump was the first President since 2002 not to visit U.S. military troops over the Christmas holiday. Shortly thereafter on the 26th, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that the President and First Lady had touched down in Iraq, and dozens of news websites began frantically editing their headlines.
As this author noted earlier on Sunday, the liberal media is adamant they smell President Trump’s blood in the water and they’re eager to declare his presidency dead. But during the network Sunday talk shows on ABC and NBC, their conservative panelists pushed back hard on that narrative and even mocked how they make the same claim “every other week”.
Between the government shutdown and the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, the liberal media have been quick to claim they smell President Trump’s blood in the water. Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd said as much during an appearance on NBC’s Sunday Today where he predicted Trump would cave on the border wall to end the government “shutdown” and the “functional end” to Trump’s presidency because of Mattis’ departure.
NBC’s supernatural drama Midnight, Texas is about to wrap up its second season, whether people notice or not. Despite coming at the most wonderful time of the year, this fantasy series is doubling down on its bloodiest and most questionable moments with beheadings of heroes and incestuous villains. Here I thought you had to watch Game of Thrones for that garbage.
On Friday, some Americans might have missed news that President Donald Trump signed into the law the bipartisan, landmark First Step Act. If you were watching ABC’s World News Tonight, you might have been one such person as the newscast ignored this example of a positive legislative breakthrough, instead choosing to insinuate Rush Limbaugh is to blame for an impending government shutdown.
All three networks went into red alert on Friday, hyperventilating about the “chaos” of a shutdown showdown after Donald Trump “torpedoed” a deal as he demanded funding for a border wall. Of course, the blame went to Republicans. Today co-host Hoda Kotb blasted, “Critics saying it is up to the President and his party to break the gridlock.”
