All three networks Tuesday morning covered the sexual assault allegations by Elle magazine columnist E. Jean Carroll against President Trump, with NBC being the only network of the three to just do a brief on the story. However, the networks omitted the accuser’s very odd behavior and comments during an interview on CNN last night with Anderson Cooper, despite ABC and CBS showing other clips from that interview.
Not surprisingly, the major broadcast network newscasts were out to lunch between Sunday morning and Monday morning about not one but three new stories detailing what the Minneapolis Star Tribune stated as “[n]ew investigative documents” that provide “fresh life to lingering questions about the marital history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and whether she once married a man — possibly her own brother — to skirt immigration laws.”
On Monday’s Today show, co-host Savannah Guthrie talked to the cast of Showtime’s The Loudest Voice about their “damning portrayal” of late Fox News chief Roger Ailes in the new series. Guthrie’s disgraced former co-host Matt Lauer and NBC’s questionable handling of his years of alleged sexual harassment wasn’t mentioned during the lengthy segment.
On Friday, NBC’s Today show abandoned objective facts about biology in favor of pushing propaganda on “gender fluidity,” all as part of the network’s promotion of gay pride month. Not one word of objection was voiced in the five-minute segment as the morning show touted teens “rewriting the rules of gender” and “educating” their parents.
On Friday’s Today show, NBC weatherman and climate change activist Al Roker promoted a social media campaign to push the liberal agenda item, which included wearing a pin meant to represent the planet’s warming temperatures. He even had help from a local meteorologist at NBC’s Washington D.C. affiliate.
When a sitting congresswoman sides with our enemy over our own country, is that not newsworthy? Apparently the networks didn’t think so. They ignored a tweet sent Thursday by Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar, where she blamed America for Iran shooting down one of our military’s drones. The networks, even cable news, were nowhere to be found Thursday evening or Friday morning.
Now-ex-staffer Jackson Cosko was sentenced to four years in prison on Wednesday on five felony counts. And in over 24-hours since the sentencing, none of the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) covered it on their flagship morning and evening newscasts.
Democratic presidential contenders lashed out at frontrunner Joe Biden on Wednesday after he bragged about the ability to work with segregationists in the Senate, saying he could get things done with anyone. While all three networks covered this Democrat-on-Democrat fight Wednesday night and Thursday morning, CBS allowed the least amount of coverage: A scant 2 minutes and 34 minutes out of a total two and half hours of available air time.
On Wednesday, the network morning shows uniformly panned President Trump’s Tuesday night launch of his reelection bid in Florida, slamming the speech as “dark,” “scary,” and just rehashing the “same old grudges” against his “perceived enemies.” Reporters dismissed the event as just a continuation of Trump’s 2016 campaign.
On Tuesday, liberal Late Night host Seth Meyers appeared on NBC’s Today show, where he was greeted with congratulations from the cast for five years of using his show to promote Democrats and bash Republicans. The morning show crew was impressed with Meyers bringing his left-wing “point of view” to the late night landscape – not that politics was lacking in that arena.
In an exclusive softball interview with Anita Hill designed to clear the decks for Joe Biden about his handling of the Clarence Thomas hearings in 1991, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell was eager to turn the conversation away from liberal complaints about the Democratic frontrunner to unsubstantiated accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
All three morning shows on Friday covered the surprising news that Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be stepping down as press secretary, but only CBS got nasty and insisted that “many believe” Sanders committed a “disservice to her country” while working for the White House. CBS This Morning reporter Paula Reid snidely offered quote marks, relating, “Yesterday, the President announced Sanders announced she would be leaving, her, quote, ‘service to her country.’
