    It looks as if an Avid Editor for ABC’s Good Morning America (GMA) news show may have violated company policy and engaged in a serious conflict of interest. Federal Election Commission records revealed that GMA Avid Editor Cybele Policastro had donated $225 so far to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Open Secrets records also showed that Policastro gave $250 to the liberal super PAC Save America Fund September 19, 2020, which is associated with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) Democratic challenger Amy McGrath. Policastro’s role, as described on LinkedIn, involves “[e]diting feature stories and celebrity interviews for Good Morning...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden repeated his controversial contention Thursday that police should try to shoot dangerous suspects in the leg as a form of de-escalation. "You have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances. De-escalate," Biden said during an ABC News town hall. "So, instead of anybody coming at you and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg."
  • ABC News Calls Kyle Rittenhouse ‘Alleged White Supremacist,’ Cites Joe Biden’s False Claim

    Breitbart ^ | October 13 2020 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    ABC News referred to Kyle Rittenhouse as an “alleged white supremacist” in a report last week, despite the fact that the 17-year-old has no known ties to white supremacism. ABC justified the label by citing former Vice President Joe Biden, who has suggested Rittenhouse is a white supremacist in a campaign ad — and who faces a possible defamation lawsuit as a result. The Daily Wire flagged the ABC report, which said: Rittenhouse, an alleged white supremacist accused of killing two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in the wake of an officer-involved shooting, appeared via Zoom for an Illinois hearing where...
  • SHOCKER: ABC’s Jonathan Karl Fact-Checks Biden Campaign on Taxes

    Insufferable ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl actually took the time to fact-check a claim by Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that “[n]obody making under $400,000 bucks would have their taxes raised” under his proposed tax plan. Talk about a twilight-zone moment. During the October 11, edition of ABC This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Karl grilled Biden campaign co-chair Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) on Biden’s promises to only raise taxes on the rich. Karl questioned: “[Biden] has said that he will not raise taxes on anybody making less than $400,000 a year. But the analysis put forward by the...

    Just hours before the first presidential debate, two polls released Tuesday show Joe Biden with a considerable nine-point lead against Donald Trump in the battleground state of Pennsylvania as a vast majority of nationwide voters say debate performances won’t change their minds about who they’re voting for. A Washington Post/ABC News poll taken September 21-26 shows that 54 per cent of likely voters in the swing state plan to cast their ballot for the Democratic nominee compared to the 45 per cent who say they will vote for the president. At the same time, a national survey from Politico/Morning Consult...

    If there was some feeling over the last couple of weeks that Donald Trump was moving in the right direction electorally, we now have more empirical evidence to back that up.ABC News has released their latest state polling and the President has now taken the lead in two key states, pointing to a race that is tightening and moving in Trump’s direction as Joe Biden continues to hide in his basement most days. Biden still leads Trump with support among registered hispanic voters in the states — a voting group w/ a diversity of opinions.In Florida, his 13-point lead trails...

    What happens if COVID death rates plummet to the point of no longer being a pandemic threat? The media will turn it on Trump.> Legacy media became predictably hysterical after President Donald Trump’s speech Friday defending American exceptionalism at one of the nation’s most iconic monuments, Mount Rushmore. “We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth,” Trump proclaimed from the South Dakota Black Hills. “We are proud of the face that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and...

    SEATTLE -- Following days of violent confrontations with protesters, police in Seattle have largely withdrawn from a neighborhood that protesters have transformed into a festival-like scene that has President Donald Trump fuming. Trump taunted Gov. Jay Inslee and Mayor Jenny Durkan about the situation on Twitter and said the city had been taken over by “anarchists." “Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will,” Trump tweeted. The “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” sprung up after police on Monday removed barricades near the East Precinct and basically abandoned the structure after officers used tear gas, pepper spray and...

    SNIP Dutch investigators believe a human may have contracted the novel coronavirus from a mink at a farm in the Netherlands. New research findings in the ongoing investigation into the country's mink farms also show that the animals can have COVID-19 without showing any symptoms, according to a press release from the Dutch government. Investigators also believe cats may have a role in the spread of the virus on the mink farms. Coronavirus antibodies were detected in three out of 11 cats at one of the mink farms under investigation. Pending further research, the Dutch government is advising mink farm...

    EXCLUSIVE: ABC News will present three days of special coverage to how the coronavirus has reflected, exposed or exacerbated racial, ethnic and socioeconomic divides. Starting on Wednesday, the reports, titled Pandemic — A Nation Divided, will appear across all of the network’s platforms. The series is rooted in statistics showing a disproportionate impact of the virus on African Americans and Latinos and other communities. For instance, in New York City, African Americans are twice as likely to die of the virus, according to the network. In Washington, D.C., Latinos have been seven times more likely to be infected than white...

    Facebook didn't provide much confidence in its ability to navigate the uncharted waters of a pandemic in the age of Big Tech on Monday. Experiencing a pandemic on the scale of the Wuhan coronavirus in the age of Big Tech is a journey into uncharted territory, making the industryÂ’s often cozy relationship with the political class a recipe for new abuses of personal data and speech policing. Facebook didnÂ’t provide much confidence in its ability to navigate these waters on Monday. At first, the company seemed to be bragging about its work with state governments to remove posts promoting protests...

    On Wednesday, President Trump and members of his crisis response team were questioned four times during a press briefing on the White House’s plans to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, which originated in China, about whether it is racist to call the disease the “Chinese virus.” Four times. ABC News’s Cecilia Vega was the first to bring up the matter of problematic terminology. “Why do you keep calling this the ‘Chinese virus’?” the White House correspondent asked. “There are reports of dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese Americans in this country. Your own aide, Secretary Azar, says he does not...

    VIDEO My big takeaway from watching the funeral of that "gentle poet" Qasem Soleimani in Iran was that Martha Raddatz, despite being made to wear the Iranian version of the Handmaid's Tale outfit, will come back to the USA with nary a word of criticism about that. Meanwhile liberals hypocritically continue portraying President Trump and conservatives of not so secretly wishing to impose a Handmaid's Tale type of dystopian future on America while we actually have a REAL LIFE Handmaid's Tale existence in Iran that they are reluctant to criticize.
