Journalists sometimes ignore facts and evidence in order to promote an ideological narrative. For example, journalists peddled the Duke Lacrosse and University of Virginia rape hoaxes even after they were debunked. They also continue to distort the facts about a 1991 Supreme Court nomination, in which the FBI and members of the U.S. Senate rejected as unfounded claims that Judge Clarence Thomas said sexually offensive things to Anita Hill.
With absolutely no evidence to speak of and no public testimony from the accuser (so far), the liberal media had found Judge Brett Kavanaugh guilty in their kangaroo court of public opinion. They’ve declaring his confirmation dead in water the calling for him to withdraw himself. During ABC’s This Week, none of their liberals could understand how people could believe Kavanaugh, and lamented that people did.
I have a message for virtue-signaling men who've rushed to embrace #MeToo operatives hurling uncorroborated sexual assault allegations into the chaotic court of public opinion. Stuff it. Your blanket “Believe Women” bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul.
ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd is never lacking movie analogies and had them ready for Thursday’s Good Morning America, gushing to anchor George Stephanopoulos that President Trump had gone “full hunt for Red October” trying to find the source of the anonymous New York Times op-ed written by someone in the White House who identified himself as part of the “Resistance.”
On Sunday, the political panel on ABC’s This Week was eager for Democrats to win control of the House of Representatives in November’s midterm elections so that liberal lawmakers could launch numerous investigations into the Trump administration. Moderator George Stephanopoulos sparked off the discussion by declaring: “If the president’s concerned about self-preservation, he better do well in the midterms. Republicans better do well.”
We are used to Matthew Dowd’s outrageous analogies and over-the-top rants against President Trump on Good Morning America, but today the ABC political analyst took to Twitter instead to share his absurd observations.
The United States is proud to have Israel as an ally. But you’d never know it from watching the liberal media’s reactions to the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. As the embassy opened on Monday, May 14, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that it “was the right thing to do,” and praised Trump. On Twitter, back in the states, the media raged. Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour tweeted, “Today is a sad and enraging day. #Jerusalem.”
Despite all the good news for America this week, like the freeing of American hostages and the low unemployment rate AND the capture ISIS leaders, the ABC panel on Sunday’s This Week was huffing about President Trump ending the Iran nuclear deal. The bitter panelists were up in arms and were making predictions of just more war on the horizon. One even claimed the Trump administration was setting us up for the Iraq War 2.0.
On Sunday, following a week marked by President’s Trump’s multiple flip-flops on gun rights and due process, the panel on ABC’s This Week fortified liberal calls for gun control with one appearing to openly argue for ignoring the Second Amendment and to confiscate firearms.
Never letting a tragedy go to waste, many liberals in the media immediately took to Twitter to blame Republicans for the Parkland High School shooting that took place Thursday afternoon. Several journalists from CNN, MSNBC, ABC and more blasted Republicans who had received donations from the NRA as being responsible for a sick kid’s murderous rampage.
Criticism and speculation swirled over the weekend that Chief of Staff John Kelly was on his way out after it was discovered that the White House had hired, not one, but two alleged domestic abusers. But it all got out of hand during ABC’s This Week on Sunday when former Bloomberg News editor Megan Murphy decried the administration’s hiring practices by berating everyone who wanted to work in the Trump White House as the new chief of staff, regardless of who they were.
“Just because it’s biased, doesn’t mean it’s not true.” That was the assessment from Good Morning America journalists and analysts on Saturday while discussing the intelligence memo released on Friday. Guest Matt Dowd touted the already tired “Al Capone vault” comparison.
