The journalists at CBS have suddenly become prim and proper and are offended by someone using profanity. Horrified at the use of expletives from White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, This Morning co-host Gayle King on Friday fretted to veteran journalist Bob Schieffer: “When you hear something like that, Bob, are you offended?... Are you disappointed? Are you saddened by it?”
On Thursday, The Hill reporter Joe Concha put the media on notice. Speaking about the news that a staffer for Florida Congresswoman and former Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz had been arrested trying to flee the country, he blasted the liberal media for ignoring the scandal.
ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued on Wednesday morning the liberal media’s attempts to help Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fl.) cover up the scandal involving now-fired I.T. staffer Imran Awan after his arrested Monday when he tried to flee the country.
On Friday, NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning portrayed the partial implementation of President Trump’s temporary travel ban from six Middle Eastern nations as being more controversial that the state of Nevada legalizing recreational marijuana just days after a study showed similar policies in other states caused a spike in deadly traffic accidents.
Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch is “to the right,” the “far right.” CBS and The Washington Post on Wednesday conducted a collective freak out over the possibility that the new judge really is in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia. The two outlets collectively used the terms “right” or “far right” eight times.
On Friday, while both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America provided full reports on left-wing actor Johnny Depp joking about assassinating President Trump, CBS This Morning could only manage 45 seconds of air time out of its two-hour broadcast to mention the latest outrageous celebrity outburst.
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Tuesday examined the lack of civility in America and, somehow, managed to avoid discussing the attempted slaughter of Republican members of Congress by a rage-filled Bernie Sanders supporter. Trying to murder your political opponents would seem to be a rather uncivil action.
Two days after a Bernie Sanders-supporting, Republican-hating gunman attempted to slaughter GOP members of Congress, CBS This Morning’s Gayle King on Friday asked Elizabeth Warren if “both sides” were responsible for the heated climate. The co-hosts also failed to press the liberal Democrat on some of her angry rants.
After a Bernie Sanders-supporting, Republican-hating gunman attempted to slaughter GOP Congressmen, CBS This Morning host Charlie Rose on Thursday wondered if it was Donald Trump who needed to show "civility." Talking to Republican Congressman Gary Palmer about violence at a baseball practice, Rose suggested, “Do we begin with leadership from the White House in terms of trying to cool down things and trying to create more civility and trying to create a more common ground?”
On Monday, the network morning shows breathlessly hailed the latest partisan Democratic effort to attack President Trump, resurrecting a lawsuit accusing Trump of violating a clause in the Constitution because of his business interests. Such charges were hyped by the same media that excused the Clinton Foundation scandal that swirled around Hillary Clinton.
Democratic Senator Joe Manchin appeared on Monday’s CBS This Morning and offered some skepticism and tough questions for ex-FBI Director James Comey. Yet, the show’s hosts desperately pushed for signs that Donald Trump has done something deeply wrong.
While NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday devoted full reports to comedian Kathy Griffin’s widely-condemned mock beheading of an effigy of President Trump, CBS This Morning could only afford a 36-second news brief on the topic. By contrast, when an Republican congressional staffer criticized the behavior of the Obama daughters at a White House event on her private Facebook page in 2014, the CBS morning show had no trouble devoting full coverage to the minor controversy.
