After the church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas last year, a bipartisan group of lawmakers came together to craft legislation with the goal of making sure the federal background check system was up to date since the shooter should have been barred from buying a gun but authorities didn’t add him. And since the Parkland, Florida shooting, the bill has picked up steam. But on Monday’s CBS Evening News, the network seemed to pooh-pooh the idea of better background checks and preferred a gun ban.
NBC star Lebron James can go on a profanity-laced tirade against the President of the United States and be applauded for it, but if Fox News host Laura Ingraham suggests that the athlete focus on basketball instead of hurling nasty political rhetoric, it’s tantamount to a hate crime. That was the message that ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning sent on Monday.
CBS’s 60 Minutes on Sunday devoted 11 minutes to potential presidential candidate Oprah Winfrey’s conversation with voters in the swing state Michigan. Winfrey’s questions included pressing these selected Americans on Donald Trump’s mental fitness as well as accusations of sexual abuse against the President.
CBS journalist Major Garrett on Friday derided Donald Trump, portraying the President as only really caring about crime when an immigrant commits it. Additionally, he repeated the bogus claim that the President in 2017 weakened efforts to stop the mentally ill from obtaining guns.
Fresh off their disinformation campaign in the immediate aftermath of the Parkland, Florida school shooting in which they falsely claimed there had been 18 school shootings this year, the three major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) moved on to another fake news topic they wanted to push on the American people: President Trump and the GOP made it easier for mentally ill people to buy guns.
In the immediate aftermath of Wednesday’s school shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school, the liberal media sprinted to push gun control while vigorously waving a ridiculous school shooting statistic put out by the anti-gun lobbyist group, Everytown for Gun Safety. According to their numbers, there had been 18 school shootings since the start of 2018. The only problem? It was bogus. So much so, even the liberal Washington Post found the need to call out them and the rest of the media.
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.’”
On Thursday, CBS This Morning joined ABC’s Good Morning America in applauding openly gay Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy as a “champion for LGBTQ rights” who was using his position on Team USA to blast the Trump administration for failing to “support the LGBT community.”
All three networks on Thursday reacted similarly to Donald Trump’s speech about the mass shooting in Broward County, Florida, knocking it at as free of calls for gun control and specific policy. Yet, the President, did mention mental health reform, something that NBC’s Chuck Todd seemed to miss.
In the aftermath of Wednesday's terrible school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the liberal media callously rushed to use the deaths to push for more gun control. And in their haste, the three major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) relied on a statistic from the anti-gun lobbying group Everytown for Gun Safety which claimed that there had been 18 school shootings since the start of 2018. And since it fits the narrative, why fact check?
During CBS’s live coverage of the deadly school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, Homeland Security correspondent Jeff Pegues showed his liberal bias by peddling dubious statistics from the far-left gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety without vetting their credibility or citing their leftist tilt.
It has been a week since the disturbing allegations came to light that Rob Porter, a now-former White House staffer close to the President, had a history of domestic abuse against his two ex-wives. And during that time, the evening newscasts of the major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) had dedicated almost a combined hour to the story. But when it came to similar accusations against congressional Democrats, they couldn’t be bothered.
