As they’ve done all week, ABC’s Good Morning America spent several reports touting the “impressive” and “passionate” teen gun control activists from Parkland, Florida, who met with President Trump yesterday at the White House and who screeched “murderer” at Florida Senator Marco Rubio and the NRA’s Dana Loesch at CNN’s ruckus, scripted “townhall” last night.
Immediately following President Trump’s positive State of the Union address, which ABC complained was “divisive” “gloomy” and “sad,” the same ABC team was still in meltdown mode two hours later on Nightline. But newly instated ABC News contributor Chris Christie was the only one to declare the truth of the matter, that Democrats had become so partisan that there wasn’t “anything” he could’ve said that night to appease them.
ABC’s Nightline on Thursday night did a “deep dive” into the world of “ultra-conservative,” “far-right” mobs in Europe and connected Donald Trump to the continent’s “history of hate.” Reporter James Longman seemed to go out of his way to say “far-right” as much as possible and blur the line between regular conservatives and bigots.
The proactive, preemptive violence of so-called anti-fascists, aka "antifas," has gotten very light media exposure. It's fair to say that one big reason for this is the establishment press's reluctance to recognize or even report their violent and intricately planned attacks. A months-long undercover investigation by Steven Crowder and his producer found ample evidence of antifas' premeditated determination to commit violence against those who merely express views they don't like. He also showed that local and national journalists deliberately walked away from the evidence he presented and have refused to recognize his work, even when corroborated in the presence of law enforcement authorities.
According to ABC’s Nightline, Colin Kaepernick is the modern day Jackie Robinson. The man who started the kneeling trend in the NFL is the same as the man who broke baseball’s color barrier. As video of Robinson played, Nightline anchor Dan Harris on Monday night hyped, “This current NFL kneeler movement may have kicked off with Colin Kaepernick, but when it comes to athletes using their platforms for change, he did not start the fire.”
Since Donald Trump began his run for President in June 2015, parts of the dominant liberal media have repeatedly parroted the incorrect claim that, in 1989, Trump ran a newspaper ad in which he urged the execution of a group of young black and Hispanic teens who ended up eventually being proven "innocent" in spite of confessing to the infamous rape and beating of a Central Park jogger that year.
It's been a tumultuous year for Maddi Runkles, the pregnant Christian teen who became a news sensation when her high school wouldn't let her walk at graduation. On Friday, ABC Nightline highlighted Runkles' story which culminated in a special commencement ceremony arranged by her pastor and family.
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, anchor Robin Roberts and Nightline anchor Juju Chang touted a story of a mother and son both declaring themselves as transgender and getting gender re-assignment hormones and surgery. The two ABC anchors mutually gushed over the “incredible” “moving” and “touching” story. At the end of the report, Roberts and Chang even praised the “courage” of the mother for being “inspired” to change genders because of her child’s transformation.
Another example of fake news from the liberal media? ABC News late on Tuesday night apologized for deceptively editing a quote from former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer. In a segment from Monday on current press secretary Sean Spicer, Nightline’s Juju Chang featured a quote of Fleischer unequivocally condemning Spicer: “His briefing made me uncomfortable. It was too truculent, too tough. It looks to me if the ball was dropped on Saturday.”
The journalists at Nightline could barely contain their contempt for Donald Trump at Wednesday’s press conference, mocking it at a “hyperbolic,” “circus”-like atmosphere. Without providing a lot of context about the unverified claims made by BuzzFeed and repeated by CNN, Jon Karl worried, “Unbelievable. I mean, to see a President-elect of the United States call out a news consideration.”
ABC’s Nightline, a program that has covered such non-stories as “bootleg butt injections” and “cat poo coffee,” actually complained about “fake news” websites. Co-anchor Juju Chang on Monday huffed that “established media outlets are built on accuracy” as she wondered if scam websites resulted in Hillary Clinton losing.
Network journalists are still mourning the American public’s rejection of Hillary Clinton. Nightline co-anchor Juju Chang on Wednesday talked about the scene of “devastation” at Clinton’s campaign headquarters and described the loss as a “devastating chapter in what has been a decades-long story of public service.”
