Just 12 days after CBS correspondent Oprah Winfrey “stepped away” to campaign for Democrat Stacey Abrams in Georgia, Winfrey is back on the network and you’ll never guess what she’s doing: Praising a Democrat. Winfrey’s best friend, Gayle King, introduced Oprah on Monday, to reveal the next book club selection: Michelle Obama’s new autobiography.
CBS This Morning co-hosts on Monday fawned over the new president of Planned Parenthood, cheering “yay!” that she appeared on the show. The hosts also lamented that the organization, responsible for three million abortions, had been “politicized.” The journalists also allowed Dr. Leana Wen to repeat the mostly bogus claim that the abortion provider offers “cancer screenings.”
All three networks worried about the “fate” of the Mueller investigation with news that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired yesterday. On Thursday’s morning news programs, anchors and reporters tore into his replacement as acting AG, Matthew Whitaker, for comments he has made in the past criticizing the Mueller investigation. They also touted Democrats like Chuck Schumer fearmongering, calling it a “constitutional crisis.”
When it came to the major broadcast networks and their midterm election coverage, CBS didn’t pan out to have quite the bias the ABC and NBC offered, but there was still one journalist who came through in the clutch with plenty of liberal bias and that was, of course, CBS This Morning co-host and Obama donor Gayle King.
Within moments of the broadcast networks coming on the air Tuesday night with their midterm coverage, ABC, CBS, and NBC had the long knives out for Republicans, condemning their “nativist,” “white-hot rhetoric” creating “one of the most divisive midterms in our lifetime” that was marred by “hate, violence and tragedy.”
Now that Oprah Winfrey is once again off campaigning for Democrats, CBS on Thursday announced that the 60 Minutes contributor will be “stepping away” from her role at the network. At least for now. This arrangement at the network is full of all sorts of conflicts, yet CBS kept Winfrey on in spite of her far-left politics. On Thursday’s This Morning Nancy Cordes reported on Winfrey’s decision to go and campaign for liberal Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams.
The 2018 midterms were less than a week away and the liberal media were already looking forward to the 2020 Presidential election and dreaming about the candidates they would back against President Trump. During Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, they were fantasizing about Oprah Winfrey going toe-to-toe Trump and touting her efforts to get Democrats elected in 2018.
New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has quite the track record of biased stories in addition to her book on covering Hillary Clinton filled with gooey tributes and some a-grade affection. So it was no surprise that Chozick came through Wednesday with a profile of CBS This Morning co-host, Oprah Winfrey gal pal, and Obama donor and family friend Gayle King that was so syrupy it saw no problem with King’s conflicts of interest and fantasied about a Winfrey presidential run.
CBS hasn’t had time for the wildly controversial comments from a Democratic senatorial candidate in Arizona, a woman who is tied in the polls and could win. So what did CBS This Morning cover instead on Wednesday? A House member from Iowa who is embarrassing his own Republican Party instead.
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Friday demanded that a Democratic Senator go to the White House and “confront” the President. After Mark Warner attacked Donald Trump for criticizing the FBI, King insisted, “A lot of people feel the way you do, Senator, that words matter. Why don't a group of you all get together and just confront him and say, you know, ‘Mr. President, this is not helping. You've got to stop it'?"
Already looking past November’s midterm elections to the 2020 presidential race, on Wednesday, the hosts of CBS This Morning treated former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro to a fawning softball interview in which they repeatedly urged the Democrat to run in two years and wondered how he could help mobilize liberal voters in the coming weeks.
Even supposedly non-political segments on CBS end up with liberal attacks. CBS This Morning journalists on Wednesday talked to “social researcher” Brene Brown to discuss her new book on “effective leadership. After co-host John Dickerson brought up Donald Trump, Brown sneered, “If you weaponize uncertainty and then guarantee them certainty, and guarantee them certainty and then give someone to blame for their pain.”
