WikiLeaks unveiled yet another highly damaging e-mail for the Clinton campaign Thursday, this one drawing big bold lines between former President Bill Clinton and the companies that helped make him rich. “It reveals a tangled web of charity and personal financial enrichment in what the aide calls ‘Bill Clinton Incorporated,’” announced Anchor Scott Pelley at the top of CBS Evening News. CBS was the only network in the “Big Three” to treat the issue with any form of seriousness, while ABC and NBC chose to glorify First Lady Michelle Obama instead.
Former Bill Clinton operative turned Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos grilled Donald Trump about his campaign against the wife of his old boss. The businessman brought up Stephanopoulos’s shady connections, including $75,000 in secret donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Although ABC’s Designated Survivor last invoked President Ronald Reagan in defense of illegal detentions, in this week's episode, "The Mission," he is associated with victory and success.
The “Big Three” networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) found yet another topic to distract themselves from talking about issues damaging to Democrats Wednesday evening. “Trump's message today, overshadowed by the man in the front row,” explained ABC’s Tom Llamas on World News Tonight, “Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, fresh off his explosive interview with Megyn Kelly.” According to the nets the argument was more important than corruption, leaked e-mails, or videos showing admission to federal crimes.
Wednesday, ABC had a field day talking about the fiery exchange between Newt Gingrich and Megyn Kelly on FNC’s The Kelly File Tuesday night. Anchors David Muir and Robin Roberts joined analysts Matthew Dowd and Jon Karl to trash Gingrich for badgering Kelly about the Clintons’ scandals. Muir asked what the Trump team “has to gain by taking on Megyn Kelly,” before the panel argued this would only hurt Trump more with women voters. Dowd then claimed Gingrich appeared to have lost his mind, while Karl added that bringing up Bill Clinton’s sex scandals was a distraction for the Trump campaign.
On the ABC comedy American Housewife, Katie Ott bemoans Raisinets by saying they’re like “health food in a perfectly good bag of candy.” In this episode, I consider their depiction of Republicans as the unwelcome Raisinet in my candy bag. The only difference is that I can’t take it out.
In “The Real Halloween” episode of ABC's The Real O'Neals, Kenny tries to celebrate his first “gay” Halloween by, of course, going to a raunchy gay party in Boystown. His mother Eileen denies him permission for obvious reasons but allows him to host a party at their house with any gay people he can find, thinking he won’t find any. From there, he invites gay students from another school to help gay up his party.
WikiLeaks, Tuesday, exposed a massive lie President Barack Obama told to the American people following the first reports of Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server. In March of 2015 Obama told CBS News’ Bill Plante that he learned about the server, “The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.” According to the newly leaked e-mails, that is not true because he had received e-mails from Clinton’s account. But ABC News didn’t think such a deception to the public warranted anytime at all, instead touting his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Channel 27 in Harrisburg reported today that former Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane (D) has been sentenced to 10 to 23 months in prison for leaking grand jury materials to the media and then lying about it under oath. Kane was also sentenced to eight years of probation. She was convicted on August 15 of two felonies involving perjury, and seven misdemeanors.
On Tuesday, the Big Three networks' morning newscasts all hyped President Obama's appearance on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live the previous evening. On CBS This Morning, Gayle King, a political donor for the Democrat, marveled how the President's "timing is good. He seems to have a lot of fun with 'Mean Tweets.' He takes it all in stride." On Today, NBC's Matt Lauer touted Obama's "phone drop moment" after he mocked Donald Trump on the late-night program. Cecilia Vega spotlighted the same "Mean Tweets" segment on ABC's Good Morning America.
News of Obamacare’s problems didn’t happen in vacuum. The law got years of support from a complicit media which praised the law, attacked its opponents and ignored adverse consequences. Below are six examples of journalists pushing the law.
