After Tuesday’s presidential debate, ABC senior congressional correspondent Mary Bruce and World News Tonight anchor David Muir were opining from another planet, insisting Joe Biden kept “his cool,” was “the adult in the room,” and remained “fairly steady in temperament and tone” despite calling Trump “a clown,” “the worst President...ever” and told him to “shut up.”

ABC Was NOT Happy with Trump’s ‘Harsh,’ ‘No Hope’ Speech of ‘Darkness’
In reacting to President Trump’s 2020 RNC speech on Thursday night, ABC made sure their coverage reflected the total opposite of how they basked in and marveled at Joe Biden’s speech. Instead, they decried it as a “no hope” speech “filled with” “darkness,” entitlement, “harsh attacks,” lacked energy, and dared to suggest Biden would reenact lockdowns if elected.
Kooky Nets: Excusing Rioters, Trashing RNC as ‘Alternate Realities’
Along with their reaction to Vice President Mike Pence’s Wednesday night 2020 RNC address, the “big three” broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC had plenty of other takes, ranging from excusing the rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin because suffragettes did the same to get the right to vote to calling the RNC “alternate realities” that support the Star-Spangled Banner to trashing…
ABC Stews Over Pence Not Mentioning Blake, ‘Revisionist’ COVID History
On Thursday night after Vice President Mike Pence’s 2020 RNC speech, ABC journalists and liberal panelists were less-than-pleased he didn’t forcefully speak out against Sunday’s shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, condemn armed individuals defending businesses from rioters, and accept responsibility for the size and scope of the coronavirus pandemic.

After Some Praise, ABC, CBS TRASH Scott From the Left on BLM, COVID
Following Monday’s 2020 RNC address from Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), ABC and CBS had praise for Scott’s “classic,” “compelling,” “optimistic,” “personal,” and “positive” remarks, but they pivoted to smearing Scott by appearing to question his commitment to race relations. His crime? In the eyes of ABC and CBS, Scott didn’t talk about the Jacob Blake case, didn’t acknowledge the…

Networks Profess Love for ‘Very Relatable’ Kamala’s ‘Soaring Speech’
As much as the broadcast networks would have liked to, they couldn’t spend all week talking about Barack and Michelle Obama during their coverage of the virtual 2020 DNC.

They’re in LOVE: ABC Swoons for Harris, Dispute ‘Progressive’ Label
Given that ABC’s World News Tonight bookended the newscast with over 11 minutes (11:04) on former Vice President Joe Biden’s selection of Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) to be his 2020 Democratic running mate, it was obvious they were in love with their ticket.
