As a continuation the liberal media’s narrative that Hillary Clinton’s pick for VP is the perfect ‘centrist’ and properly religious, ABC Political Commentator Matthew Dowd hyped a religious feud between Tim Kaine and Mike Pence on This Week. “What I’m fascinated to see is, these are two men of— both of deep faith,” stated Dowd, “But from opposite sides. One, the Social Justice Catholic, the other Evangelical Fundamentalist.” Dowd started by fawning over how in love Clinton was with her decision to pick the former Virginia Governor.
Even before Indiana Governor Mike Pence was selected as the GOP vice presidential candidate, all three broadcast networks instructed viewers that he was a "staunch conservative" and "social conservative" who was "popular with the Tea Party." But those same networks are now advertising Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton's choice to be the Democrats' vice presidential candidate, as a "centrist" and "moderate," even though Kaine is as far to the left as Pence is to the right.
CNN didn't disappoint on Friday's AC360 when it broke the news about Hillary Clinton choosing Senator Tim Kaine to be her running mate. Jeff Zeleny stuck to liberal media's talking points about the vice presidential pick, labeling Kaine "more moderate than the liberal strain driving today's Democratic Party." He added that the Virginia Democrat's "views on abortion are far more conservative than most Democrats" — but then played a clip where Kaine admitted that he was "going to protect women's legal rights to make their own reproductive decisions."
The three networks on Thursday night immediately derided Donald Trump’s “dark speech” as one coming from a “vengeful” “demagogue.” On NBC, Tom Brokaw allowed that “some” will see Trump as on a “white horse who will lead them to some kind of sanctuary and then pull the drawbridge up.” But he sneered, “Others looking in are going to see someone they will only think as a demagogue of some kind.”
Joy is at it again on The View. Thursday’s episode began with the panel discussing last night’s events at the Republican National Convention and whether or not they thought Ted Cruz was sincere in his non-endorsement of Donald Trump. CNN’s Sunny Hostin disagreed with panelists Joy Behar and ABC’s Sara Haines, the latter of whom thought Cruz was just doing this “for himself.” When Hostin began to defend Cruz standing up for his “party’s platform,” Behar outrageously compared the GOP platform to Hitler’s manifesto.
The knives were out on ABC and NBC late Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in reaction to Ted Cruz’s speech not endorsing Donald Trump as their reactions varied from Cruz having “badly miscalculated” to suggesting that Cruz would be blamed in November if Trump doesn’t win the general election.
It’s been a day and a half since the establishment liberal media sank their jaws into the Melania Trump “plagiarism” story, and they are showing few signs of letting go, with heavy coverage on the broadcast networks’ Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning news shows. Eight years ago, however, when a similar flap threatened then-Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, the broadcast networks generated much less coverage — just 14 minutes of airtime, or barely one-fourth what they’ve churned out this week.
When a lone protester from the anti-American, far-left group Code Pink tried to make noise in the crowd at the Republican National Convention (RNC) on Tuesday night, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC tag-teamed with MSNBC to spent nearly six minutes showing and discussing the “scrappy” protester.
On Monday and Tuesday, CBS Evening News failed to cover the ISIS-inspired knife and ax attack by an Afghan refugee on train passengers in Germany. Instead, the newscast ended on Tuesday with a report on the celebrities who condemned Donald Trump for walking out to Queen's "We Are The Champions" at the Republican National Convention on Monday. NBC Nightly News covered the Islamist terrorism with a brief on Monday and a full report on Tuesday. ABC's World News Tonight finally covered the story with a brief on Tuesday.
The journalists at ABC and MSNBC on Tuesday could not contain their rage over Chris Christie’s hard-hitting Republican National Convention speech, denouncing it as “inciting” a “mob.” Noting that delegates chanted “lock her [Hillary Clinton] up," ABC’s Terry Moran fretted to the New Jersey governor, “Do you think that is a good thing for American politics when political disagreements result in a crowd basically becoming a mob?”
The majority of the panel on Tuesday’s The View were furious about former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s speech defending police officers at the RNC last night. Panelists Joy Behar, CNN’s Sunny Hostin, ABC’s Sara Haines and Whoopi Goldberg blasted the Mayor for his tone and message, calling him “nutty,” “berserk” “lunatic” and “divisive” while FNC’s Jedediah Bila was the only panelist to defend Giuliani’s speech.
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows worried over the Republican convention being too conservative and throwing “raw red meat” to the party base. On NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie fretted: “Okay, let’s talk about the tone of last night. There was a lot of red meat for the base. Is that good strategy? Is this going to be a base election?”
