CBS on Friday admitted that This Morning co-host Gayle King, a Democratic donor, is actively lobbying her liberal friend Oprah Winfrey to run for president. Does anyone see this conflict of interest as a problem? Previewing a segment from Sunday’s 60 Minutes, Winfrey recounted what happened after her Golden Globes speech, “When there was so much talk about it and Gayle was, like, every day saying, ‘You should think about it. You always say when things show up, you should think about it.’”
While many in the entertainment world mock Christianity, one Grammy award-winning artist is “cool with saying” he loves God. On Wednesday, CBS co-anchor Gayle King asked one “huge music star” and “philanthropist,” Chance the Rapper, about his music on This Morning.
During an interview with Florida Senator Marco Rubio on Wednesday’s CBS This Morning, co-host Gayle King claimed it was “offensive” for President Trump to highlight the victims of MS-13 gang violence during the State of the Union address and argued that he was trying to paint all immigrants as criminals. The Republican lawmaker immediately called out her unfair accusation.
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday placed the blame for the government shutdown on Donald Trump and the Republicans. Co-host Gayle King pressured the President to “do more” on ending the stalemate. The journalists failed to point out that Chuck Schumer in 2013 vowed not to shut down the government over immigration.
After being asked on Wednesday’s NBC Today if he was “living in a fantasy world” regarding new tax reform legislation, on ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning, House Speaker Paul Ryan called out the liberal media for spreading disinformation about the legislation and fact-checked their Democratic Party talking points.
On Wednesday and Thursday, the broadcast networks were openly enthusiastic about the prospect that Democrat Doug Jones winning the Alabama Senate race could derail the entire Republican legislative agenda. In stark contrast, when Republican Scott Brown pulled off a major upset win in the 2010 Massachusetts Senate race to replace the late Ted Kennedy, the same liberal media went into mourning.
CBS co-host — and Democratic donor — Gayle King on Wednesday openly lobbied Joe Biden to make a presidential bid. CBS This Morning’s journalists donated 19 minutes and 39 seconds to promoting the former Vice President’s new book. Although the hosts focused on women accusing Donald Trump of harassment, the resignation of Al Franken never came up. Neither did Biden’s long history of creepy touching.
On Monday, liberal late-night host Jimmy Kimmel once again used his show to launch nasty attacks against Republicans over the issue of health care. While urging Congress to approve funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (C.H.I.P.), the comedian-turned-activist labeled the effort to pass tax reform “disgusting” and accused the GOP of “putting a tax cut that mostly goes to rich people ahead of the lives of children.”
A furious round of liberal-on-liberal violence broke out on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning. The show’s hosts confronted former Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile for daring to expose Hillary Clinton’s efforts to hobble any contenders in the 2016 primaries. The normally friendly (to liberals) Gayle King dismissed Brazile as “bitter” and “angry.” Co-host Norah O’Donnell questioned Brazile’s truthfulness.
An interview with Texas Governor Greg Abbott about the horrific church shooting in Sutherland Springs on Monday’s CBS This Morning turned heated as co-host Gayle King made it clear that the only thing she was interested in was using the attack to push for gun control. “So now we’re at place where you get shot at a concert, at a school, at a movie theater, and now, in church. Do you now think that we have to think this is the new normal in this country for the citizens who live here?,” she asked the Republican.
In case you were wondering, journalists are already excited over what ex-FBI Director James Comey will say in his upcoming memoir. Though it won’t be out until May of 2018, the co-hosts of CBS This Morning on Thursday gushed over the release... of the title. Co-host Norah O’Donnell enthused, “Something tells me that's going to be a good book!”
Wednesday morning, all three networks covered the damning revelations that broke last night, revealing the Clinton campaign and DNC paid for the controversial Russian “dossier” released just days before Trump’s inauguration. While CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today show gave full reports to the serious topic, ABC’s Good Morning America only devoted a few seconds to the story, as an end to another report.
