On Wednesday, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force raided an apartment in Sacramento, California and arrested Omar Ameen, a man wanted in Iraq on charges he murdered a police officer while flying the ISIS banner. Court documents reportedly show that he snuck into the U.S. by lying his way through the refugee vetting system, something liberals suggested was impossible. To apparently preserve that narrative, ABC and NBC had omitted the arrest from their morning and evening programs on Thursday.
Following the arrest of Republican Congressman Chris Collins, the broadcast networks once again showcased their partisan double standard when it comes to corruption allegations against members of Congress. Collins’s arrest on Wednesday on insider trading charges resulted in a deluge of coverage, over 18 minutes in less than 24 hours. But in 2015 and 2016, ABC, CBS and NBC buried the indictment, trial and conviction of two Democratic representatives, offering absolutely no coverage of the scandal surrounding Congresswoman Corrine Brown (convicted of fraud) and a paltry 68 seconds to Chaka Fattah (convicted of bribery and fraud).
On Wednesday, the network morning shows all claimed the outcome of Ohio’s 12th Congressional District special election was “too close to call” despite Republican candidate Troy Balderson seeming to have won a narrow victory over Democrat Danny O’Connor. Despite that apparent result, reporters desperately spun the likely Democratic defeat as a “moral victory” and predicted electoral doom for the GOP in November’s midterm elections.
CBS This Morning journalists on Monday highlighted the desperate need to secure the border, the northern border that is. Offering a refreshingly clear look at the lack of effort to stop illegals or terrorists from getting through, Gayle King explained: “CBS News has learned that the number of people illegally crossing the United States northern border is up 142 percent.”
CBS This Morning co-host (and Democratic donor) Gayle King on Thursday angrily reacted to Donald Trump's mocking of potential 2020 opponent Joe Biden. Yet, the very same King in 2012 did not object to Biden smearing Republicans as wanting to put black voters “back in chains.” In fact, she attempted to fix the then-Vice President’s gaffe.
From President Donald Trump’s policy of separating the children of illegal immigrants to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, there was a lot for lefties in the media and Hollywood to lose their heads over this month. Anchors and reporters depicted the “despot” Trump and those who voted for him as Nazis that were making the Statue of Liberty weep. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities.
The attempt to blame Donald Trump for the awful shooting in Annapolis on Thursday continued on CBS. This Morning co-host Gayle King on Friday rightly said: “You don't think you're in danger going to your office day. That's why this is so troubling.” But then she added, “I don't think it helps, either to have the President of the United States saying that the media is the enemy of the people to lead to one of the deadliest attacks in U.S. history.”
CBS This Morning hosts on Thursday were very worried about the impact of Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, fretting that abortion rights are “doomed” with the vacancy being the “final nail in the coffin.”
In a shocking upset overnight, a far-left socialist who wants to abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) prevailed over a long-time Democratic incumbent in a New York congressional primary on Tuesday. Yet, despite CBS This Morning scoring an exclusive network interview on Wednesday morning, the hosts only tossed softballs and ignored Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s hard-left views.
CBS This Morning hosts on Friday unveiled a new series that basically amounts to an op-ed during the supposedly straight news show. Calling it “The Reporter’s Notebook,” co-host John Dickerson celebrated the White House’s reversal on splitting children as a victory for “the human tribe.” Norah O’Donnell touted co-host Gayle King’s lecture from this week that “the Statue of Liberty weeps” at the administration’s actions.
While the liberal media all went wild over Time magazine’s latest photoshopped cover depicting an aloof President Trump towering over a crying immigrant child, on Friday, only CBS This Morning took the time to correct the record and explain how “misleading” that doctored image was. Unlike NBC or ABC, the broadcast network actually sought out the Border Patrol agent who first encountered the child and her mother, explaining that the two were not separated.
CBS on Thursday once again showed itself to be the network that will at least consider not demonizing law-abiding firearms owners. This Morning co-host Gayle King highlighted a good guy with a gun who stopped an armed carjacker in Washington State. Pastor David George, described as a “holy hero” by the onscreen graphic, killed a gunman who was firing on others.
