Good Morning America
All three network morning shows on Wednesday celebrated “history being made” and “progress” after female Democratic candidates won primaries in several states on Tuesday. The broadcasts were particularly enthralled by African American state legislator Stacey Abrams winning Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial primary and openly gay former sheriff Lupe Valdez winning the same contest in the state of Texas.
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows were gleeful over the news that Barack and Michelle Obama had signed a deal with Netflix to create original content for the online streaming service. Hosts happily touted “a lot of people very excited” about the announcement and cheered that the former president and first lady “got paid,” with the agreement rumored to be worth tens of millions of dollars. Missing from much of the adulation, except for a brief mention on NBC, was the fact that the Netflix executive in charge of content was a major Obama campaign donor.
While making ABC’s annual “upfront” presentation to advertisers on Tuesday, left-wing late-night host Jimmy Kimmel just couldn’t resist slamming the President, who he described as “a lunatic,” and as a result, “we’re all gonna die.” The liberal comedian made these remarks even after claiming in a preliminary interview that “I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump, and I feel like the upfront is a time to look within and make fun of ourselves.”
ABC, MSNBC, The New York Times and other media outlets on Wednesday and Thursday distorted Donald Trump’s attack on MS-13, the brutal gang of illegal criminals, into a slur on “undocumented immigrants.” On MSNBC, the network graphic misled: “Trump Calls Some Undocumented Immigrants ‘Animals’ in Rant.”
On Wednesday, the ABC and CBS morning shows were so excited at the prospect of Democrats seizing control of the House of Representatives in November that they decided to get an early start on their slanted campaign coverage by gushing over the number of female Democratic candidates who won primary races in multiple states on Tuesday, particularly in Pennsylvania.
For two days now, the liberal media’s anti-Israel smears have grown wilder and arguably begun to border on something more. The Tuesday evening broadcasts of the major network news outlets (ABC, CBS, and NBC) were no exception as they mourned with the Palestinians on the day they call the “catastrophe,” or the anniversary of Israel’s creation.
Following Monday’s ceremony opening the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, on Tuesday, all three broadcast networks were eager to denigrate the move and blame the United States and Israel for violence in the Gaza Strip that was encouraged by Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. In a series of dramatically one-sided reports, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows offered propaganda instead of news.
All three networks on Monday hyped the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem with varying degrees of worry, but it was CBS This Morning that fretted over the “impotent anger” directed towards Israel and the high unemployment in Gaza. Holly Williams tried to spin the riots and violence as mostly peaceful: “Most of the Palestinians here today are peaceful, but some are attempting to cross the border. They're throwing stones and lighting fires.”
It has been 70 years since the Jewish people were allowed to return to their homeland of Israel after World War II, and on Monday the United States will be moving its embassy to their capital city, Jerusalem. And during ABC’s Good Morning America on Sunday, they proclaimed the Trump administration was “killing any prospect of peace” in the region with the embassy move. Their naysaying came as the President was set to sit down with North Korea for historic peace talks and denuclearization.
All three networks on Friday morning found time for the gossipy, unverified report that Donald Trump yelled at Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. But NBC and ABC are STILL ignoring the news that five top ISIS leaders have been captured in Iraq and 40 more were killed in an air strike.
George Stephanopoulos is still working hard to defend powerful men accused of sexually harassing women. The former Bill Clinton operative turned journalist on Thursday interrogated Linda Vester, the woman who accused Brokaw of unwanted sexual advances and groping. Stephanopoulos, who stood by Clinton as numerous women accused him, lectured Vester: “Tom Brokaw is pretty angry.”
When Vice President Mike Pence sat down for interviews with all three broadcast networks early Thursday morning, just moments after greeting three American detainees who had arrived back in the U.S. after being released from North Korea, he was logically peppered with questions about the Korean peace process. However, unlike her ABC and CBS colleagues, NBC’s Andrea Mitchell only asked a couple questions on the topic before moving on to grill Pence about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
