REGIME MEDIA: ABC Keeps Pushing ‘Bloodbath Hoax’ In Trump Smear

May 3rd, 2024 12:24 AM

ABC World News Tonight, far and away the most fervent propagator of Biden talking points, farted out an embarrassment of a report that served little purpose other than to attempt to rekindle January 6th fearmongering and rehash the broadly-debunked “Bloodbath Hoax”.

Watch the aforementioned report in its entirety, as aired on ABC World News Tonight on Thursday, May 2nd, 2024 (click “expand” to view full transcript):

DAVID MUIR: Meantime, in the race for The White House, Donald Trump refusing to commit now to accepting the results of the upcoming November election, and President Biden tonight saying, "Take Donald Trump at his word" on this. Here's Mary Bruce.

MARY BRUCE: Tonight, the Biden campaign is calling Donald Trump “a danger to the Constitution and a threat to our democracy”, after the former president refused to say he would accept the results of the election. Trump telling the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “If everything's honest, I'd gladly accept the results… If it's not, you have to fight for the right of the country.”

BRUCE: Tonight, President Biden saying, take Trump at his word. Our Karen Travers asking him:

KAREN TRAVERS: Are you worried that Trump says he won't accept the election results?

BIDEN: Listen to what he says!

BRUCE: Earlier this week, when Trump was asked by Time magazine if he's concerned about violence if he doesn't win, he said, "If we don't win, you know, it depends. It always depends on the fairness of an election." 

Biden has been ramping up his warnings.

BIDEN: He promises quote,” a bloodbath”, if he loses. This guy denies January 6th. Listen. Listen to what he says. Because you know he means it.

BRUCE: The president urging voters to take this seriously, as some of Trump's language echoes what he said in the runup to the January 6th attack on the Capitol. The Biden campaign concerned that Trump supporters may be listening closely. David.

MUIR: Mary Bruce, live at The White House tonight. Mary, thank you.

Chief White House Correspondent Mary Bruce rehashes the usual January 6th hysteria, by citing portions of an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wherein Trump hedges when asked if he’d accept the results of the election should he lose. Bruce takes the opportunity to tie this to Trump’s Time  interview, and feed it to Biden as an election-denial burger. 

It is at this point that Bruce allows Biden’s utterance of the Bloodbath Hoax to go unchallenged and uncorrected. As we said when ABC World News Tonight, with Bruce behind the anchor desk, first furthered the Bloodbath Hoax:

…to accept the idea that people who are the elite in the industry of communicating with words are suddenly unable to comprehend plain English requires multiple significant suspensions of disbelief. That’s not to say that some of these elites are not intellectually deficient. But not to this extent. Which leaves willful deception as the only likely reason why reporters, correspondents and anchors would, in near unanimity continue to promote Trump’s assessment of damage to the American automotive industry under a second Biden term as both a violent threat and a January 6th-adjacent attack against democracy.

Bruce closes out tonight’s report by contemptibly suggesting, without evidence, that Trump’s rhetoric echoes what he said in the runup to January 6th and echoing the Biden campaign’s talking point that “Trump supporters may be listening closely”. 

The title “Regime Media” is well-earned.
