To the surprise of probably few readers, the media have been doing their best in this election to cover for Hillary Clinton’s numerous scandals and Wednesday night provided the latest case as the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC refused to acknowledge new revelations from hours earlier via the latest WikiLeaks dump that included more coziness between Clinton and the media.
The mounting archive of WikiLeaks emails between Hillary Clinton and her staff continues to reveal the Democratic presidential candidate’s special relationship with members of the liberal news media. Not only did she hold an off the record dinner with “influential reporters, anchors, and editors” just before officially launching her presidential bid, but reporters also asked for interviews promising the kind “she wants” or submitting copy for pre-approval before publishing it.
CBS was the only Big Three network on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning to continue reporting on the allegations of a quid pro quo between the FBI and the State Department related to Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal. CBS Evening News's Scott Pelley gave a brief about Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy's denial of a quid pro quo. The following morning, Charlie Rose gave a brief on Wednesday's CBS This Morning about a former FBI official admitting that he proposed it.
Despite Project Veritas releasing bombshell videos on Tuesday of Democratic operatives bragging about paying protesters to disrupt Donald Trump rallies and admitting to voter fraud, the broadcast networks have censored any mention of the scandal. After Tuesday’s evening newscasts skipped the story, on Wednesday, the NBC, ABC, and CBS morning shows maintained the blackout and instead cheered President Obama denouncing Trump’s claims of a “rigged election.”
As the torrent of Hillary Clinton campaign e-mails continued to pour out of WikiLeaks Tuesday, a peculiar e-mail surfaced sent from Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta. The e-mail discussed Clinton’s possible vice presidential choices with different blocks of candidates distinguished mainly by their race and gender, or as Podesta dubbed them, “food groups.” As offensive as such classifications would seem be, the liberal “Big Three” networks didn’t bat an eye at Clinton’s minority “food groups,” a stark contrast to their outrage at Governor Mitt Romney’s “binders of women” comment in 2012.
To Kenny O’Neal, the obnoxious teenaged gay stereotype on ABC's The Real O’Neals, a single gay man is not a gay man at all. To that end, the episode “The Real Dates” focuses on Kenny using a gay dating app. I suppose it’s preferable to him watching gay porn or going to a gay coffee bar, but with the way the show portrays it, the app’s not much better.
ABC's new sitcom American Housewife continues to miss the mark in its interpretation of the modern American family, demonizing conservatives while promoting liberal ideology.
Late Monday, Project Veritas dropped a series of videos exposing the underhanded tactics of liberal political operatives, which has already has led to people losing their jobs. “Tonight, a rare look inside the dark side of politics,” reported Fox News’ Bret Baier Tuesday on Special Report, “A conservative group is shining some light on how pro-Hillary Clinton forces at least plotted to circumvent election law and disrupt events for Donald Trump often inciting violence.” In spite of these bombshells, all of the “Big Three” networks blacked out the revelations.
Between Monday night and late Tuesday, various media outlets made the bizarre comparison between Melania Trump’s CNN interview defending husband Donald Trump against allegations of sexual assault to the infamous sit down then-First Lady Hillary Clinton gave to NBC’s Today in 1998 where she denounced accusations against President Bill Clinton as part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”
In the latest example of media bias concerning the 2016 election that many would cowardly blame on Donald Trump stealing the spotlight, Tuesday’s morning shows on ABC and NBC saw no reason to inform their viewers of a USA Today investigation detailing the cozy relationships cultivated between high-profile corporate lobbyists to the Hillary Clinton-led State Department, the Clinton Foundation, and top donors to her campaign.
On Tuesday, both NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America accepted at face value Obama administration denials of a quid pro quo to cover up Hillary Clinton’s possession of classified e-mails. Reports on the morning shows let statements from the State Department and the FBI be the last word on the topic.
A brand new chapter in the Hillary Clinton personal e-mail server saga opened up Monday, as newly released FBI notes revealed a possible quid pro quo between the agency and the State Department. According to the notes State Department official Pat Kennedy wanted a classified Clinton e-mail to be marked unclassified in exchange for the FBI to expand their overseas presence. But ABC and NBC decided to downplay the stunning revelations on their evening broadcasts and instead touted the Clinton campaign’s expansion into “red states.”
