On Wednesday one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides, Huma Abedin, testified in a sworn deposition to Judicial Watch about Clinton’s use of a private E-Mail and server, as a part of an ongoing lawsuit. That evening, two of the “big three” networks were silent about the testimony and the latest batch of E-Mails. On Special Report, Fox News’ Bret Baier read some of them, “Hillary to Huma, “Let’s get separate addresses or device. But I don't want to risk— any risk of the personal being accessible.””
All of the “big three” news networks ignored new details Wednesday evening of a Guantanamo Bay detainee who went missing in Uruguay. “The detainee was transferred to Uruguay by the Obama administration in 2014,” stated anchor Bret Baier on Special Report, “But has since vanished and officials say he could be in Brazil.” The development provides Congressional Republicans with even more ammo to stop detainee transfers from Gitmo.
According to the journalists at Good Morning America, having liberal singers lash out for using their songs is something that happens to “all” politicians. In reality, it tends to mostly impact Republicans. George Stephanopoulos and Matt Dowd on Wednesday discussed Mike Huckabee settling with the band Survivor for using Eye of the Tiger without permission.
The journalists at NBC’s Today show on Wednesday offered silence as Senate Democrats held up over $1 billion in Zika funding because of concern for Planned Parenthood. The program never mentioned the awkward development and it’s not as though there wasn’t time, given the show’s four hour length. Despite Tuesday’s terrorist bombing in Istanbul, Today still managed four minutes and 34 seconds on “summer beauty trends.”
On Tuesday, while all three network morning shows covered the newly-released House Benghazi Committee report, the broadcasts also dutifully parroted Democratic talking points attacking the credibility of the findings and concluded: “It does not appear to uncover conclusive evidence of wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton.”
It is now two days since it became obvious that the claim that "millions of Britons" have signed a House of Commons petition advocating a do-over Brexit vote is bogus.
The petition's buildup to millions of "signatures" was predominantly caused by bot-generating pranksters, and the entire effort proves absolutely nothing about UK citizens' alleged "regrets" over voting to leave the European Union last Thursday. But the press, either reluctant to admit they've been had or to discard a convenient, agenda-driven meme (or both), is allowing its past erroneous reporting on the petition to stand, while refusing to acknowledge more than a sliver of the fraudulent enterprise.
All three networks on Tuesday hyped a possible Hillary Clinton/Elizabeth Warren presidential ticket, but the journalists on ABC’s Good Morning America were the most effusive. Former Democratic operative and Clinton Foundation donor George Stephanopoulos cheered, “Elizabeth Warren, certainly a bold choice. An all woman ticket would be brand new.”
Hillary Clinton trotted around Ohio Monday with Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, adding fuel to the speculation that Warren is going to be her VP pick. And like a celebrity couple, the “big three” networks took time to fantasize about the greatness of a Clinton/Warren ticket. “A major new force on the campaign trail, Elizabeth Warren joining Hillary Clinton side by side for the first time today,” remarked NBC’s Lester Holt on Nightly News.
The US Supreme Court dealt a major blow to pro-life supporters Monday, by striking down a Texas law that required abortion clinics to have admitting privileges to a local hospital. But the liberal “big three” networks seemed to tout the ruling on their evening shows, some almost mocking. “Jubilation from the pro-choice side,” ABC’s George Stephanopoulos cheerfully noted on World News Tonight, before switching to a sad voice, “But despair from anti-abortion forces.”
Lefty Alec Baldwin is back on TV, this time hosting a revival of the game show Match Game on ABC, so you knew he would bring politics into what should be a fun family show. Combine this with fellow lib and Trump archrival Rosie O'Donnell as a guest and you have all the makings for a Donald Trump bashfest.
Journalists on all three networks on Monday continued to howl with outrage over Britain’s decision to exit the European Union. Reporters on ABC, CBS and NBC attacked the “worst decision” that could lead to “economic disaster.” On the Today show, analyst Jim Cramer assailed, “In terms of the financial chaos and collapse, it’s just one of the worst moves I’ve seen.”
On Monday, all three network morning shows gushed over the left-wing activism on display during Sunday night’s BET Awards. In particular, the hosts and correspondents on NBC, ABC, and CBS were enthralled by Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams launching into a racially-charged screed against “this invention called whiteness [that] uses and abuses” African Americans.
