  • ‘The View’ star Joy Behar mocks Mike Pence’s Christian faith: ‘That’s called mental illness’

    The women of ABC News' “The View” took a shot a Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday, mocking the former governor of Indiana for talking to Jesus and even calling it a “mental illness.” It all started when they played a clip from “Celebrity Big Brother,” in which former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman discussed the vice president. “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence… everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life,” she said in the clip. “I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks...
  • NBC & ABC Fear Military Parade Would Make U.S. Look ‘Authoritarian’

    On Wednesday morning, NBC’s Today show and ABC’s Good Morning America recited identical liberal talking points as both broadcasts warned viewers that the U.S. was on the verge of looking like world’s worst “authoritarian regimes” if the Pentagon followed through on President Trump’s desire to hold a military parade in the nation’s capital. “Some unusual marching orders from President Trump to the Pentagon. He wants a massive parade to highlight the country’s military strength,” fretted Today co-host Hoda Kotb. “But as NBC’s Hans Nichols explains, that request is not sitting well with some lawmakers,” she added.
  • Stephanopoulos Defends Democrats, Desperately Tries to Connect Trump to Page

    Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos tried desperately to connect President Trump to former campaign adviser Carter Page, presenting him as a Russian agent working with the Kremlin during an interview on the ABC morning show. However, no matter how hard the former Clinton staffer pressed Page, he didn’t gain any ground in proving his Democrat-agenda-driven talking points. The ABC anchor started off the interview by graciously letting Page argue his defense first, before trying to tear it apart. “You say this Republican memo that was released shows the abuse of your civil rights was even worse than you imagined. Why?”...

    All three networks on Thursday hyped the “escalating” fight over a “controversial,” “bombshell” congressional memo set to be released alleging surveillance abuses against the Trump 2016 campaign. ABC’s Good Morning America touted Democratic “outrage.” At the same time this story developed, ABC and NBC ignored what should be big news: The revelation that the FBI in fall of 2016 waited a month before telling Congress of additional Hillary Clinton e-mails.  On Good Morning America, reporter Cecilia Vega trumpeted, “While some Republicans say the memo casts a shadow over the integrity of the Russia investigation, Democrats are outraged.” She then featured...

    ABC kicked off Sunday’s Good Morning America with five minutes dedicated to the government shutdown. And despite the fact that Democrats were bragging that they had the votes to do it, the liberal network trashed Republicans and touted how President Trump would take all the blame. “The government is not going to stay closed forever. The question is how long will it take. And you can see the argument on both sides. As our polls show, you guys showed it, people coming into this debate believe the President and Republicans will be to blame by a wide wide margin,” hyped...

    For almost an hour on Tuesday, the White House press corps stooped to a new low of embarrassment and clownishly liberal behavior, lobbing over a dozen questions at Navy Rear Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson to insinuate that President Trump must be mentally ill to the point of AlzheimerÂ’s Disease. This was all despite JacksonÂ’s insistence that heÂ’s in great health. Whether it was Bloomberg, CBS News Radio, CNN, or The Washington Post, the long knives were out as the liberal media engaged in their own PickettÂ’s Charge to save their narrative that TrumpÂ’s mentally ill and thus must be removed...

    ABC Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos stepped up the liberal media’s condemnation of President Trump during Sunday’s This Week by heinously exploiting the heroic death of a U.S. soldier to take a snide shot at the President for his recent immigration comments. As he was wrapping up the show, Stephanopoulos drew attention to the death of Private Emmanuel Mensah. Private Mensah was an immigrant from Ghana who sacrificed himself to save several others from a fire that was consuming the apartment building he was staying at with family while he was on leave. Stephanopoulos Exploits Death of US Soldier to Take a...

    The onetime top aide to the Clintons earns some $15 million dollars annually........but the icy anchor’s cachet has diminished significantly with Hillary’s loss and his cadre of Democratic friends on the outs in Trump's Washington. “He doesn’t bring much to the table anymore,” said an ABC insider. It’s not clear why he’s sitting there." ABC is under fire for paying Clinton activist singer Katy Perry $25 million to be a judge on just one season of a revamped “American Idol.” Stephanopoulos was initially valuable; with unprecedented access to the Clintons and to the Obama WH....he'd phone Rahm Emanuel -- a...

    In a hostile, lengthy exchange on ABC’s The View Friday, co-host Meghan McCain admitted frustration at being the sole Republican host on the show. Trying to explain to co-host Joy Behar that Trump supporters “don’t care” about the Michael Wolff book, or other controversies the media hypes about the White House, McCain gushed, “I have never felt more conservative and more defensive of the middle of the country than I have before I started working on this show.”The segment started by talking about the news of the day, the salacious book about Trump’s White House by Michael Wolff, released today...

    Life Time has scrubbed all-news cable channels from the screens at its fitness centers, saying a growing number of customers think they don’t fit a healthy lifestyle. The Chanhassen-based company this week dropped CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and CNBC from TVs in front of various workout machines. While the screens were in view of all in fitness areas, audio could only be heard through earphones. With a few exceptions, TV screens built into treadmills and other cardio machines also “currently do not have the ability to display these channels,” Life Time spokeswoman Natalie Bushaw said Thursday. However, a second phase...

    ABC News has demoted its embattled chief investigative correspondent, Brian Ross, after he botched an “exclusive” report on Donald Trump and Russia. News President James Goldston announced to staffers on Friday that Ross would be reassigned to ABC News’ outside production house, Lincoln Square Productions. Ross, who had been scheduled to return from a four-week, unpaid suspension on Thursday, will not be resuming his former, longtime role. He is believed to be retaining his title of “chief investigative correspondent” though he is not expected to be seen on ABC with live reports, so it’s unclear how he will perform those...

    The anti-government protests targeting government and religious leaders sweeping across Iran took a bloody turn Sunday as overnight reports surfaces of two protestors being killed at the hands of the corrupt government. Disgustingly, the deaths didn’t trigger much air on the three major American networks. ABC’s Good Morning America had a blackout of the deaths and protests all together while NBC only found 24 seconds for them. CBS finally discovered the protests, as they continued into their fourth day, dedicating a meager 16 seconds. Instead of allowing serious time for the brutal murders of Iranian civilians and the protests, whose...

    During ABC’s World News Tonight on Wednesday, the network demonstrated just how well they could stick to the Democratic Party’s talking points. “The biggest tax cuts will go to the wealthy, corporate America,” boldly declared sensationalist anchor David Muir as he was coming on the air. While he was quick to continue the liberal echo chamber, he cast doubt on the Republicans’ promise of economic growth. “But will that happen? Not everyone is convinced,” he chided before handing the report over to Senior White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega.Vega began her segment on the tax reform victory by sneering at Republicans...

    After making completely false claims about the GOP tax reform bill on ABC’s Good Morning America earlier on Sunday, Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos spent most of This Week leading the discussion tearing it down. After spending a couple minutes smearing the bill in his opening monologue, Stephanopoulos interviewed Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn where one of his first questions involved allegations GOP leaders bought off Tennessee Senator Bob Corker with a real estate provision: There's a lot more scrutiny of the bill, which was just released on Friday in these final hours. Including an article in the International Business Times,...

    Congressional Republicans were one step closer to realizing their hopes for tax reform on Thursday as it appeared as though the House and Senate had reconciled nearly all of the legislation. Hearing the recommendations and concerns of the public, the Republicans preserved the current tax codeÂ’s deductions for student loans, medical bills, and added a $10,000 cap for state and local taxes. But of the three major network news outlets, NBC was the only one that left them out of their evening broadcast. Instead of reporting what was known to be in the GOP tax reform bill, NBC Nightly News...

    Axios ^ | 12/8/2017 | Shane Savitsky
    A September 2016 email sent to senior Trump campaign officials directed them to documents that had already been publicly released by WikiLeaks, per The Washington Post. Initial reporting on the email this morning from CNN said the email was sent on September 4 — WaPo reports that it was actually September 14 — and left it an open question whether the documents had been previously released. Why it matters: WaPo's reporting massively changes the significance of this story, indicating that the sender — a still unknown "Michael J. Erickson" — might have just been trying to alert Trump campaign officials...
