All three morning shows on Friday led with the “stunning” vote by Britain to exit the European Union, a move that is “rocking” the world. Yet, only ABC’s Good Morning America ignored the inconvenient fact that Barack Obama tried and failed to influence the vote this past spring. On CBS This Morning, Charlie Rose reminded, “President Obama visited in April and urged voters to stay in Europe.”

On Thursday, the network morning shows were beside themselves with enthusiasm over Democrats taking to the House floor to demand gun control with an all-night sit-in. On NBC’s Today, correspondent Peter Alexander was particularly swept up in the excitement and declared the partisan political stunt to be “Truly one of the most dramatic demonstrations on the House floor in modern American history.”

All three networks on Thursday gushed over the possibility that Barack Obama might have an ownership stake in a basketball team after leaving the White House. NBC opened the Today show with naked excitement. A graphic cheered, “Full court Prez!” Co-host Savannah Guthrie enthused, “Does President Obama have his sights set on owning a team in the NBA after he leaves office? What the White House is revealing about the Commander in Chief's hoop dreams.”

ABC’s Good Morning America spent four minutes on Tuesday morning promoting a new birth-control app where doctors can dispense contraceptives without a face-to-face visit. ABC even promoted it for what’s controversial about it.

Co-host Lara Spencer began:  But right now –  the way girls as young as 13 may be getting the pill. The New York Times reporting it is happening with new apps and websites.”

In the wake of the horrific attack on an Orlando nightclub by a man espousing allegiance to ISIS, it didn’t take long for the Big Three networks (ABC, NBC, CBS) to advance the preferred political line of the Democrats, in this election year, to push for more gun control. Beginning on the evening following the shooting, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt on June 12, sounded the clarion call for gun control: “Today’s terror attack brings national security and the debate over gun control to forefront of the presidential campaigns once again.” And for the next week, an MRC study shows the broadcast network news programs flooded their shows with statements favoring gun control over gun rights by a ratio of 8 to 1.

Reports on ABC's World News Tonight on Monday and Good Morning America on Tuesday both downplayed the controversy, with correspondent Linzie Janis briefly remarking: "When asked his name, the gunman responds, 'My name is I pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi of the Islamic State.' Authorities initially redacting that pledge, but later releasing it caving into criticism." There was no mention of Republicans calling out the administration nor any use of the word "controversy."

Despite swirling controversy over the Obama Justice Department’s decision to censor 911 transcripts of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen pledging allegiance to ISIS during his shooting rampage, on Monday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today avoided any mention of the glaring omission. Only CBS This Morning actually pointed out the censorship, as correspondent Jeff Pegues revealed: “The transcript will include redactions, including his pledge to ISIS.”

On Friday, NBC’s Today skipped any mention of CIA Director John Brennan detailing Obama administration failures in the fight against ISIS while testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The morning show ignored the major story despite Thursday’s NBC Nightly News devoting a nearly two-minute segment to the topic.

Although NBC and CBS on Friday covered the “unprecedented,” “deep frustration” that diplomats at the State Department have for Barack Obama’s Syria policy, ABC’s Good Morning America allowed a scant 18 seconds to the subject. This is despite allowing 14 minutes to a Demi Lovato rock concert, clearly not as important a topic.

As the networks ramp up a liberal call for more gun control, only ABC’s Good Morning America on Thursday highlighted the news that a gun shop in Orlando turned away the Orlando terrorist when he attempted to buy body armor and bulk ammunition. Instead, CBS This Morning offered a lecturing, not-very-helpful segment about just how easy it is to buy an AR-15 in Alexandria, Virginia. In contrast, GMA’s Brian Ross explained the story of Lotus Gunworks: “The owner of the gun shop in Jensen Beach, Florida, told ABC News Mateen tried to buy body armor and bulk ammunition from his store but he turned him down because he seemed suspicious.”

The journalists at Good Morning America on Thursday prompted Oprah Winfrey to praise Hillary Clinton and talk about supporting her in 2016. The talk show host lauded Clinton: “I'm with her. I have to say I'm with her and I would also say that regardless of your politics, you cannot be a woman in the world and not see that this is a monumental time for women breaking the ceiling.”

Appearing on Thursday’s Good Morning America, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly denounced the politicization of the mass shooting in Orlando. “[I] hate to see this war on terror politicized because that's what's going on,” O’Reilly complained after anchor George Stephanopoulos brought up how various politicians have made the shooting a policy issue for their side. O’Reilly unleashed on what liberal journalists like Stephanopoulos don’t understand about why most Americans oppose strict gun control.
