All three networks couldn’t stop gushing over pop star Taylor Swift’s liberal awakening on full display at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards. While accepting an award, the singer called on the White House to respond to a Change.org petition to pass the “equality act” a federal level law banning “discrimination” against transgender and gay people. ABC, NBC and CBS gave Swift the royalty treatment, praising her “powerful” and “intelligent” speech and “transformation” embracing the left.
On Monday, all three network morning shows were giddy over two weak challengers against President Trump in the 2020 Republican primary and even hoping for more quixotic candidates to enter the race. NBC and ABC touted ex-Congressman Joe Walsh issuing a “stinging rebuke” to Trump while CBS again urged contributor and former Senator Jeff Flake to jump in the contest.
CBS This Morning on Thursday promoted the New York Times attempt to blame everything wrong in American on slavery. Talking to Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, co-host Gayle King praised the effort: “The thing that’s so amazing about this that makes me so proud, you can look at just about anything happening in the world today and tie it to slavery.”
Democratic donor and CBS This Morning host Gayle King on Wednesday gushed over the new production company started by Barack and Michelle Obama. The segment promoted their company Higher Ground and its new Netflix movie American Factory. Speaking as though she was blurbing a movie poster, King cheered, “They don't call their company Higher Ground for nothing. They want to do something that celebrates our core values as a country, and certainly celebrates the triumph and the human spirit. I can’t wait to see it.” It always needs to be pointed out, King has vacationed with the Obamas, so she’s not exactly neutral on the two Democrats.
On Tuesday, journalists on all three network morning shows joined liberal celebrities in rushing to defend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle against accusations of hypocrisy after the supposedly environmentally-conscious royal couple took two different trips on private jets within a week. Reporters on CBS, NBC, and ABC touted other wealthy elites like Elton John and Ellen DeGeneres scolding critics for daring to question the royals’ controversial travel habits.
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Tuesday repeated a nasty quote about Mike Pompeo, deriding the Secretary of State as a “heat-seeking missile for Trump’s” ass. King interviewed Pompeo for Tuesday’s show and parroted the vulgar comment from a New Yorker piece. She regurgitated, “One former American ambassador who shall not be named, this is delicate, describes you like ‘a heat-seeking missile for Trump's bottom.’ Except he used the other word.”
On Friday morning, the CBS This Morning crew were oblivious to recent stories about good guys with guns defending themselves from mass shooters in public places as they not only ran a story about an effort to force Kroger into becoming a gun-free zone, but the hosts also voiced agreement with sentiment from the story that "you don't need a gun to buy groceries."
On Tuesday, CBS This Morning was in awe of radical climate change activist Greta Thunberg, hailing the 16-year-old from Sweden as “the voice of the planet” and touting her plan to sail across the Atlantic to attend a United Nations climate summit in New York. The report particularly applauded Thunberg for scolding the United States and President Trump for not doing enough to stop global warming.
On Monday, CBS This Morning brought on left-wing American University professor Ibram Kendi to lecture viewers on the “metastatic racism” plaguing the nation, particularly in the wake of the mass shooting in El Paso. During the discussion, co-host Gayle King observed that “most people think black people can’t be racist.”
On Friday morning, NBC’s Today show actually devoted a nearly four-minute report to criticism of hypocritical left-wing celebrities taking private jets and yachts to a climate change event in Italy hosted by Google. In the midst of covering “a bunch of billionaires and celebrities” attending the “mysterious” meeting, the network broadcast featured a photo of CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King showing up at the gathering of liberal elites.
CBS This Morning's Gayle King has settled the debate. The member of the so-called “Squad” of far-left Democratic congresswoman “love this country so much” and any statement otherwise is “simply not true.” The co-host/Democratic donor on Thursday declared, "Not one of them has ever said, ‘I hate America.’ Not one of them has ever said, 'I don't want to be here." Citing her own interview with Rashida Talib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, King insisted of “Squad” members (who have refused to condemn violent Antifa): “In fact, I would say they love this country so much. They spoke with such pride about being in Congress.”
After Tuesday’s CBS Evening News ignored the embarrassing leadership shake-up at Planned Parenthood, on Wednesday, CBS This Morning managed a minute of air time to discuss the abortion group’s president, Dr. Leana Wen, being fired by the organization’s board after just eight months at the helm. Liberal co-host and Democratic donor Gayle King was “disappointed” by the news.
