Monday on ABC’s Good Morning America, the network continued blasting Republicans and President Trump for the government shutdown while defending Democrats, touting their new poll which showed more Americans blamed the GOP instead of Democrats for the shutdown. However ABC’s credibility is shot on who is to blame for government shutdowns, as they tend to blame Republicans for shutdowns no matter who is in office.
In perhaps the least surprising thing to happen thus far in 2019, President Donald Trump’s Tuesday night address was not well received by the broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC (and particularly the first and third ones). Anchors, hosts, and correspondents panned it as inaccurate, full of fear-mongering, and then offered little to no criticism of the Democratic response by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows were thrilled with Democratic Party talking points preemptively dismissing President Trump’s upcoming immigration speech as nothing but “malice and misinformation.” Reporters touted how liberal lawmakers were “demanding equal time” in the media to response to Trump’s prime-time address.
After Friday’s Good Morning America ignored the vulgar promise by Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) to “impeach the motherf***er” in reference to the President, World News Tonight arrived on scene and did a boilerplate segment while the CBS Evening News and NBC Nightly News again covered Tlaib as their morning counterparts did, but CBS decided to level the tired liberal media line about how “Republicans pounced” and NBC dubbed it as having triggered “a barrage of Republican backlash.”
With California Democrat Nancy Pelosi taking up the speaker’s gavel on Thursday, the liberal media was energized and excited to see how she would take down President Trump. During their evening news programming, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) gushed about the day’s ceremony on the floor of the House and boasted about how “historic” it was.
ABC and CBS carried Special Reports Thursday afternoon as Democrats took control in the House of Representatives and neither could contain their excitement for what they were “feel[ing] here in the halls” as “a new era” began, causing “an earthquake in Trump world” and supposedly putting the Senate and White House on the defensive due to the midterm national popular vote.
With the partial government shutdown in its 12th day Wednesday, President Trump invited Democratic leaders to the White House to negotiate on the budget. As would be expected the liberal media sided with the Democrats. During coverage of the shutdown on ABC’s World News Tonight, the network suggested Trump was the one “digging in” while they portrayed Democrats as the heroes offering a “pathway” to end the shutdown.
On Friday, some Americans might have missed news that President Donald Trump signed into the law the bipartisan, landmark First Step Act. If you were watching ABC’s World News Tonight, you might have been one such person as the newscast ignored this example of a positive legislative breakthrough, instead choosing to insinuate Rush Limbaugh is to blame for an impending government shutdown.
All three networks went into red alert on Friday, hyperventilating about the “chaos” of a shutdown showdown after Donald Trump “torpedoed” a deal as he demanded funding for a border wall. Of course, the blame went to Republicans. Today co-host Hoda Kotb blasted, “Critics saying it is up to the President and his party to break the gridlock.”
Just days before Christmas and it appeared the federal government was headed for another shutdown after President Trump changed his mind and demanded funds for border security in the form of “metal slats”. In response, the liberal broadcast networks took out their frustrations on conservatives for getting to the President’s ear. They lashed out Thursday evening, labeling them as “far-right” and describing them like animals.
The left is up in arms because the Republican-controlled Wisconsin legislature is actually passing bills during their lame-duck session and some of them pertain to the offices of governor and attorney general. According to Democrats and their lapdog liberal media, the elected GOP representatives were not listening to the will of the people and were staging a “legislative coup”. Or, at least that’s what ABC and NBC wanted their viewers to believe during their Tuesday evening broadcasts.
The final race of the 2018 midterms will be held next Tuesday in Mississippi between Republican favorite Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy. The liberal media have been desperately trying to turn the tide by smearing Hyde-Smith with charges of racism over mostly innocuous things. And they’ve been turning a blind eye Espy’s ties to an African despot on trial for war crimes in the International Criminal Court, and the $750,000 Espy cashed in from him. Wednesday evening was ABC’s turn.
