Nothing controversial here. CBS This Morning co-hosts on Thursday breezily questioned 2020 presidential candidate Jay Inslee, offering little in the way of challenges to the Washington governor's plans to end the filibuster and the electoral college and to have Medicare for all. Instead, the journalists offered softballs with little skepticism.
In case it wasn’t clear before, CBS made it very obvious that the journalists are fans of Nancy Pelosi. The This Morning co-hosts on Friday previewed a 60 Minutes interview with the Democrat and gushed over the “feminine,” “steely tough” House Speaker.
After CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King complained on Wednesday about having to cover former Vice President Joe Biden’s questionable behavior toward women, she doubled down on Thursday, mourning the “sad conversation” taking place about the 2020 Democrat’s handsy tendencies. The other hosts joined in, even giving testimonials about Biden’s character.
The CBS This Morning crew on Tuesday and Wednesday again expressed irritation about having to cover man accused of doing questionable things to a woman. This time it wasn’t their colleague Charlie Rose, but Democrat Joe Biden. Co-host Gayle King said she had seen a lot of “eye rolls” at the claims of unwanted touching by Biden. She weirdly added that the allegations “make my teeth hurt.”
It is possible to devote extensive coverage to a major Democratic scandal. CBS proved it over the last three days. Since Sunday morning, Gayle King on various programs interviewed the two women accusing Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor for over 33 minutes. In the same span of time, ABC and NBC offered no coverage to the claims of sexual abuse and rape against the politician.
Financing your own poll apparently means never having to say you’re sorry for the results -- especially when that TV channel’s news division simply chooses to ignore whatever findings go against the network’s bias. That was apparently the case late last week, when anchors for CBS News focused on the result that 77 percent of those polled think the entire Mueller report should be released to the public. However, 54 percent of those surveyed believed the investigation was politically motivated against President Trump, as opposed to the findings in January, when half of those surveyed then believed the effort was justified.
After six weeks of ignoring the story, CBS on Sunday and Monday suddenly began to cover the women speaking out and accusing Virginia Democratic Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual abuse. On Monday, CBS This Morning offered a surprising 12 minutes to the harrowing recounting of Vanessa Tyson. Although, other than an onscreen graphic in small letters, co-host Gayle King never verbally mentioned that Fairfax is a Democrat.
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Friday wondered if Americans should “take notes” from New Zealand’s gun control push. She pressed 2020 Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper if taking away guns would be a “priority” for the liberal former Colorado governor. Guest co-host David Begnaud touted Hickenlooper’s hip appeal to millennials.
All three networks spent Thursday morning gushing in favor of New Zealand’s new gun ban, touting that it had “widespread, bipartisan support” with “very little opposition.” ABC, NBC and CBS also spent time shaming the U.S. for not adopting a similar buyback measure.
CBS This Morning's Gayle King on Friday devoted almost 12 minutes of air time to Beto O’Rourke in an “exclusive” interview promoting his 2020 presidential launch. At times, the liberal co-host offered some tough questions, repeatedly questioning the Democrat on being a “loser” in Texas. But she also delivered some criticism from the left, suggesting O'Rourke might just be too “white” for the current Democratic Party.
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Tuesday speculated on a “secret” Republican candidate who might oppose Donald Trump in a 2020 GOP primary. Talking to new CBS contributor Jeff Flake, King noted, “You made it clear you were not thinking about running against Donald Trump.”
Not content to just drag Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s name through the mud in that ridiculous witch hunt during his confirmation hearing in the fall, liberals are still determined to sully his name at every possible opportunity. The latest example is comparing the Supreme Court Justice to R. Kelly, a Grammy Award winning singer who was arrested for sexually abusing multiple underage girls and women.
