CNN International and PBS host Chrisitane Amanpour opened Tuesday’s joint program (airing live in the afternoon on the former then late-night on PBS) with two interviews in which she couldn’t have been more stark, going softer on an Iranian vice president than U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. In other words, it was par for the course with Amanpour.
On Wednesday's Amanpour & Co. show on PBS, host Christiane Amanpour pushed the left's talking points that Republicans have engaged in "voter suppression" to hinder Democrats from voting as she interviewed former Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker.
Thursday’s Democratic debate hosted by PBS and Politico was a rather dull affair, but one question regarding climate change from Politico chief political correspondent Tim Alberta stood out as particularly nutty by any reasonable standard. In back-to-back questions, he presses candidates on their plans to pick up and relocate the entire population of certain cities.
In his opening statement during Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate on PBS, businessman Andrew Yang took a few swings at the media for being untrustworthy and smearing good Americans in their pitiful explanations for why Donald Trump was elected president.
During a break in Wednesday’s impeachment hearing, PBS NewsHour correspondent, MSNBC political analyst, and upcoming 2020 Democratic presidential debate co-moderator Yamiche Alcindor bolstered her role a spin agent for the far-left when she explained away far-left Stanford University Professor Pamela Karlan’s supposed quip involving President Trump’s 13-year-old son Barron (which she apologized for a few hours later).
On Monday's Amanpour & Co. show on PBS (also shown on CNN International), host Christiane Amanpour devoted a segment to interviewing the director of a film, titled Incitement, that has come under criticism for suggesting right-leaning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu helped stoke up "incitement" that led to the 1995 assassination of left-leaning Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by a Jewish extremist.
PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff turned to liberal pundit Mark Shields on Friday and said time may be running out for Democrats to impeach without interfering with the primaries early next year. Then Shields said something weird about Pete Buttigieg. It was a product placement for PBS. Buttigieg is a regular Mister Rogers!
In the aftermath of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's announcement that the Donald Trump administration was essentially reversing the Barack Obama policy of declaring Israeli settlements as illegal, most of the dominant media have inaccurately claimed that Trump has reversed "decades" or "40 years" of U.S. policy on the matter.
During Monday's Amanpour & Company on PBS (and CNN International), host Christiane Amanpour spent much of her show discussing the issue of climate change allegedly caused by global warming, and at one point negatively characterized word that there has been an increase in global warming skepticism in other countries as she asked her guest if it meant things are "getting worse" in terms of convincing people action needs to be taken.
The PBS NewsHour managed to find 23 seconds that ABC, CBS, and NBC couldn't find on Friday night...Another record high on Wall Street. They couldn't manage to add any context for Trump in their 11-minute-long Week in Review segment, as "conservative" David Brooks wisecracked the Democrats were killing it on impeachment: "If this were a football game, it would be 42 to 3."
On Tuesday's PBS NewsHour, the show gave a forum to former Barack Obama administration official Todd Stern of the Brookings Institution to complain about President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Accord on climate change. Stern called the decision "crazy" and suggested the country needs a "new President," all without any balance offered by fill-in host William Brangham.
The front page of Tuesday's Wall Street Journal offered a big story: "Dow Hits a Record As U.S. Outpaces World." Reporter Amrith Ramkumar noted the market hit 27,462, a gain of 0.4 percent for the day. "The rally brought its 2019 advance to 18% in what has been a banner year on Wall Street."ABC, CBS, and NBC on Monday night? Nothing. NPR had no evening segment. There was also no sign of this good news on the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning "news" programs.
