CBS’s fictional salute to Hillary Clinton, Madam Secretary, has finally achieved its ultimate dream. After four seasons, the new season premiere features a lofty appearance from the former Secretary of State and failed two-time presidential nominee herself. Even better, she advises our lead on how to handle white nationalist terrorists.
NBC reporter and Hillary Clinton fan club president Andrea Mitchell showed off her infatuation with the Democratic presidential nominee Tuesday evening, as she wrote off the massive 25 percent ObamaCare premium hikes as part of a series of “nagging problems.” “A second problem, the rise in Obamacare premiums, an issue [Donald] Trump is exploiting,” Mitchell whined during her report on NBC Nightly News.
In new leaked e-mails from Colin Powell, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell told the former Secretary of State that Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination would be an “awful” development.
Just as they did Wednesday morning, the liberal “Big Three” networks steered clear of any of the more deeply personal attack against the Clintons in former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s e-mails, while continuing to rail against Donald Trump that evening. Despite hyping Powell calling Trump a "national disgrace," ABC, CBS, and NBC all ignored how Powell accused former President Bill Clinton of “dicking bimbos at home.”
When it comes to MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, one constant throughout the last decade plus with him has always been an obsessive dislike of former Vice President Dick Cheney and his family with Wednesday offering the latest installment as he admitted to his guests that it “makes me happy” and even “mirthful” that Colin Powell’s leaked e-mails showed a similar sentiment.
After CBS was caught editing footage of Bill Clinton saying Hillary Clinton “frequently” suffered from fainting spells, the network was back at it on Wednesday, again censoring unflattering news for the Democratic couple. While reporting on leaked e-mails from former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle King conveniently stopped reading from one correspondence just before Powell referred to Bill Clinton’s sex scandals.
On Thursday, both NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning hyped an effort by Democrats to provide “smoking gun” evidence that former Secretary of State Colin Powell was to blame for Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal. Reporters on the morning shows dutifully used the story to distract from Clinton being hammered over the scandal during Wednesday’s Commander-in-Chief Forum.
Los televidentes de la edición del viernes de Notciero Univision recibieron un ejemplo preciso de lo que es el sesgo noticioso por omisión, esto debido a que la cadena reportó tan solo un aspecto de la controversia por correos electrónicos entre los ex Secretarios de Estado Hillary Clinton y Colin Powell. A estas alturas, nadie debe de sorprenderse al saber cuál fue la versión que Univision favoreció y puso al aire.
Viewers of Friday's Noticiero Univision were treated to a prime example of bias by omission when the network reported only one side of the ongoing email controversy between former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and Colin Powell. By now no one should be surprised as to which side of the story was the one that actually got Univision air.
With the fresh batch of newly released e-mails regarding the Clinton Foundation, thanks to a Judicial Watch lawsuit, came new revelations of strong connections with the Hillary Clinton State Department. The e-mails added more fuel to the accusations that foundation donors “payed-to-play.” Donors such as S. Daniel Abraham, the man behind Slim Fast, and the Crown Prince of Bahrain got special meetings with the Clinton through her top aide. Even with these startling new details CBS Evening News failed to report them Monday.
Colin Powell, who the networks hyped when he endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012, has now slammed Hillary Clinton for attempting to “pin” responsibility of using a private server on him. Yet, CBS and NBC on Monday minimized the story with CBS This Morning noting it for just a scant 29 seconds (out of a two hour program).
On Fox News Sunday, in a segment comparing statements in the State Department Inspector General's report with claims Hillary Clinton has made about her emails and use of a home-brew private server while she was Secretary of State, host Chris Wallace had to endure Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff's obsessive insistence on bringing up former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who left office over 11 years ago, at seemingly every turn.
At one point in the Sunday morning segment, Wallace said, twice: "We’re done with Colin Powell," and then told Schiff that "I would expect more from you," clearly meaning, "I expected better." But then, after quoting a section of the IG's report noting that Powell was interviewed, while Mrs. Clinton, despite public assurances to the contrary, refused to cooperate with the investigation, Schiff basically said, "Aha, you brought up Powell!" Wallace's final comeback was priceless: "You know what? I’m not going to vote for Colin Powell for president this time." He did not give Schiff a chance to speak again — nor should he have.
