World News Tonight
What was supposed to be a rebuke of President Trump’s ridicule ended up drawing more laughs from most and scorn from others. In an overly dramatized campaign video out Monday, Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA) released the results of a DNA test that suggested she did have a Native American ancestor. The catch? It’s possible she was only 1/1,024th Native American. Despite that fact, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) promoted her campaign message and portrayed her as the victor.
Rapper Kanye West and Hall of Fame football star Jim Brown met with President Trump on Thursday to discuss criminal justice reform and to convince him that stop and frisk was a terrible policy. Kayne being Kayne, he stole the spotlight as he told the President, among other things, how much he appreciated him. Of course, during their evening programs, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) put a hyper-focus on Kayne and all but ignored why they were there.
The liberal media’s latest warnings about the threat of manmade global warming have a familiar doomsday ring to them.
This week, the U.N. warned there are only 10-12 years to stop “irreversible” and catastrophic global warming. However, more than 10 years ago the U.N., the media and climate prophet Al Gore were saying almost the same thing — that there was only a decade to take action.
During Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the left grew more brazen and would openly proclaim their radical beliefs and tout such tactics. With calls for the abandonment of civility and the apparent encouragement of violence, one would think it deserved some form of critical airtime from the media. But since the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were in the tank for the Democrats, they didn’t think it was newsworthy Wednesday evening.
In the midst of the Kavanaugh show trial with the Senate Judiciary Committee back on September 27, longtime Democratic staffer Jackson Cosko released personal information (including the home addresses) for Republican members of the committee.This act of “doxxing” went all but ignored by the liberal media for almost two weeks. On Tuesday, a judge denied him bail and the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) continued their total blackout.
Unemployment dipped to the lowest rate since December 1969 in September, but ABC, CBS and NBC evening news shows only spent exactly one minute combined sharing the strong economic news.
Over the summer, the broadcast networks continued to pound Donald Trump and his team with the most hostile coverage of a President in TV news history — 92 percent negative, vs. just eight percent positive. Nearly two-thirds of evening news coverage of the Trump presidency focused on five main topics: the Russia investigation; immigration policy; the Kavanaugh nomination; North Korea diplomacy; and U.S. relations with Russia, while bright spots such as the booming economy accounted for less than one percent of total coverage.
After almost a month of attempts to impugn Brett Kavanaugh with flimsy, uncorroborated, 11th hour allegations, the liberal media saw their attempts come up empty on Saturday with Kavanaugh’s official confirmation to the Supreme Court. But left behind in their wake was one dumpster fire after another, ranging from fake news to bias that radicalized even the most hardened Never Trumpers to rally behind the Judge.
Just imagine if there was video of Brett Kavanaugh groping a flight attendant – the footage would be all over the network and cable news shows right now. But when footage of President Bill Clinton grabbing a flight attendant’s knee was revealed, it was only a small part of a 1998 ABC World News Tonight segment that praised then Clinton aide/confidante Bruce Lindsey.
In a grade-A case of hypocrisy and double standards Thursday, it became clear it’s only the liberal media and Democrats who were allowed to rail against FBI investigations as illegitimate. After spending well over a year decrying President Trump’s attacks on the Special Counsel investigation, it was their turn to claim an FBI investigation was rigged. During World News Tonight, ABC became a mouthpiece for the left.
The liberal media were up in arms Wednesday after President Trump mocked Judge Brett Kavanaugh accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for having a poor memory at a rally in Mississippi the night before. But while they were perturbed by the act, ABC’s World News Tonight and CBS Evening News begrudgingly admitted that Ford couldn’t remember many of the details surrounding that night. Despite that difficult admission, they failed to go into detail regarding the blatant contradictions in her testimony.
Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell expressed optimism about the “extraordinary times” for the U.S. economy right now at an event with business economists on Oct. 2.
Powell said, “The economy is strong, unemployment is near 50-year lows, and inflation is roughly at our 2 percent objective, and the baseline outlook of many forecasters in and outside the Fed is for more of the same.”
