Thursday morning on ABC’s Good Morning America, anchor George Stephanopoulos and commentator Cokie Roberts repeatedly cast doubt on the idea that Donald Trump’s sexual assault accusations could be false. After being grilled by Stephanopoulos, Trump dismissed the accusations as made up stories but that wasn’t adequate for ABC’s Cokie Roberts who reacted skeptically.
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.
Despite carrying the Denver Broncos to the playoffs in 2011, subsequently being cut from 3 NFL teams, and receiving constant media hostility, Tim Tebow’s faith was not shaken. On October 25 Tebow, who now plays outfield for the New York Mets in an instructional league, released his new book titled, Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms. According to the description on Amazon, Shaken discusses “glimpses of [Tebow’s] journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny.” Tebow probably has a lot to say about media criticism, considering the leftist sports media has either ignored or belittled his achievements.
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 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.
The baffled journalists at CBS finally discovered what should be a massive story: ObamaCare premiums will skyrocket in 2017 by 25 percent. Yet, after ignoring the story on Monday, CBS This Morning allowed a scant 88 seconds on Tuesday. This is despite the fact that co-host Norah O’Donnell called the development a “big story” and “really interesting.” NBC, which also initially skipped the report, managed to cover it on Tuesday.
Moving past a Hillary Clinton victory, ABC now sees a Democratic Senate “likely.” Reporter Jon Karl touted his conclusion, Monday, ignoring past media botches on predictions. Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos hyped, “Control of Congress at stake in this election. Both in GOP hands right now. Those majorities may be in jeopardy.”
NBC on Monday spun the death of Tom Hayden, a ‘60s era radical activist who spouted pro-Communist propaganda, as an “enduring voice for progressive causes.” Matt Lauer simply referred to Hayden as someone who made “trips to North Vietnam,” but never described him as extreme. ABC’s Good Morning America also avoided such judgment. Only CBS This Morning referred to Hayden as a “radical activist.”
In a mind blowing segment Friday morning on ABC, George Stephanopoulos, Jon Karl and Michael Strahan actually tried to rewrite the historic 2000 election and hoped no one would remember how events actually occurred. Using the opportunity to bash Trump’s comments on conceding the election, the panel laughably contrasted Trump’s behavior with the “incredibly gracious” and “patriotic” Al Gore in 2000.
Network newscasts like to catch politicians being hypocritical, at least when they’re Republicans. But ABC and NBC, so far, haven’t show any interest in grainy 2010 video of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lecturing her subordinates on the “special duty” to protect against hacking and vulnerabilities. CBS This Morning, however, did.
On Friday’s Good Morning America, anchor Michael Strahan sat down with fourth graders from an elite private school in New York City “with big voices” who “deserve to be heard,” Strahan said. If there was any indication where this interview was going to go ahead of time, the kids were selected from an elite, cultural school in the heart of New York City whose tuition costs nearly $50,000 dollars a year and whose mission statement reads, it “guides” students “towards social justice.” Sounds like a representative sample from mainstream America.
