  • Big Three Evening Newscasts At or Near All-Time 25-54 Demographic Lows

    NewsBusters ^ | May 22, 2012 | Tom Blumer
    At Media Bistro earlier today, the news about the combined average total audience for the Big Three TV networks' evening news was grim enough, coming in at a combined 20.15 million (NBC, 7.52 million; ABC, 7.14 million; CBS, 5.49 million). But the news about the audience in the key 25-54 demographic was, from what I can tell, either an all-time low or darned close to it. I couldn't find an example of one that was lower in searches through previous overall audience low points covered in prior posts at NewsBusters and or my home blog. Last week and other...
  • Why ABC's Robin Roberts Got the Exclusive (ABC producer: Obama chose her because she's black)

    For President Barack Obama’s ground-breaking interview on gay marriage, the White House turned to a friendly face - ABC’s Robin Roberts. She’s a respected journalist who knows both Barack and Michelle Obama well, isn’t regarded as a difficult “gotcha” interrogator, and whose own identity - and shared love of sports with Obama - was a key factor in the decision to grant her one of the biggest gets of the president’s time in office, according to insiders at ABC and elsewhere. “The White House went with Robin because of her personal rapport, their friendship, the past interviews — but also...
  • The President Who Opposes the Right to Life Admits to ABC News He Opposes Marriage

    Catholic Online ^ | 5/9/12 | Keith A Fournier
    The main stream media is abuzz over the acknowledgement by President Barack Obama in an interview with ABC News that he no longer supports marriage as between one man and one woman. The politically correct way of writing about his announcement would be to follow the verbal engineers in the Human Rights Campaign, the Nation's largest Public Interest Law Firm, and say the President supports "marriage equality". I will not do so... Homosexual Equivalency activists want us to hail the Presidents "evolution" as some sort of enlightened act when it is just plain wrong and dangerous for the Nation. Borrowing...
  • Warning Graphic Photo: Possible New Evidence Shows George Zimmerman's Bloodied Head

    Zimmerman was treated at the scene by paramedics, then cuffed and driven in a police cruiser to the Sanford police station. He was questioned for hours and later released. In police surveillance video obtained last month by ABC News, Zimmerman's wounds are not apparent, and there were no bandages on his head. Zimmerman was not admitted to a hospital or given stitches the night of the incident. The person who took the photograph of a bloodied Zimmerman, asking not to be identified, told ABC News exclusively that they did not see the scuffle that night, but did hear it. The...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Safe to say that the media has destroyed George Zimmerman. They set out to destroy George Zimmerman, and they've done it. It's unconscionable what they've done. George Zimmerman doesn't have a microphone, can't fight back. He was just singled out and destroyed. The third network has come forward today and admitted that their original interpretation of a tape involving words spoken by Zimmerman may now not be correct. The third network. The first was NBC, which admitted doctoring a 911 tape. This is not an accident that takes place in the hustle and bustle of putting together...
  • New High Def Police Video Of Zimmerman Appears Damning Of ABC Report

    ABC News boldly proclaimed police surveillance video of George Zimmerman being taken into the Sanford police station the night Trayvon Martin was killed showed no blood or bruises from an alleged physical encounter Zimmerman claimed to have had with 17 year-old Trayvon Martin. Trayvon Martin Video Shows No Blood or Bruises on George Zimmerman A new High Definition clip from the same video appears to make clear that Zimmerman had a gash, or wound of some kind on the back of his head. That would be totally consistent with his version of events on the night in question and opposite...
  • Did ABC News Purposely Use Unnecessary Chyron to Cover Up Zimmerman's Head Bruise?

    NewsBusters ^ | March 30, 2012 | P.J. Gladnick
    Get that totally unnecessary chyron out of there, ABC News! Why is your "ABC NEWS EXCLUSIVE" chyron covering up the back of George Zimmerman's head in the police surveillance video of him arriving at the police station soon after Trayvon Martin was killed in Sanford, Florida? There is a big controversy out there as to whether Zimmerman actually did suffer certain injuries including a bruise to the back of his head during the fight with Martin. You would think ABC news would allow an unobstructed view of the back of Zimmerman's head. Instead the head was covered for much of...

    Wheee!!! Break out the champagne! Put on your party hats! ABC News has announced that we now have the highest gasoline prices ever for March. Huh? So why the celebrations? Because to watch joyful GMA host George Stephanopoulos in the video below the fold you would think we should all be happy because despite the gloomy news about the high gasoline prices, they MIGHT come down soon. First the harsh reality about current gasoline prices as reported by Zunaira Zaki in this ABC News business blog: The average price of a gallon of regular is now $3.87, the highest recorded...

    Coach is Right ^ | 3/15/2012 | Doug Book
    Last week, ABC’s Diane Sawyer hosted dire warnings about the rising number of government-hating militias and the danger they presumably pose to the American public. (1) And to whom did Sawyer and ABC correspondent Dan Harris turn for evidence that new, active militia groups are sprouting up all over the nation? Why to the Southern Poverty Law Center, of course. The SPLC was founded in 1971 by far-left, money and notoriety huckster Morris Dees, a man who has spent years collecting vast sums via civil law suits and spending vast sums in donation raising schemes. His antipathy for the right...

    In an exclusive interview with ABC News, President Obama today acknowledged that he has made mistakes during his presidency but defended the steps his administration has taken to create jobs and improve the economy. "I second-guess constantly… I make a mistake, you know, every hour, every day," he told ABC News' Diane Sawyer, laughing. "There're always things that you're learning in the job. And I have no doubt that I'm a better president now than the day I took office just because you get more experience. But when you look at the broad outlines of what we did, had it...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 1-20-12 | William A. Jacobson
    Last night ABC News aired the much ballyhooed interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s ex-wife. The ballyhoo was not warranted. The “interview” was not so much an interview as an 8-minute ABC News attempt to portray Newt in an unfavorable light interspersed with very short clips of Marianne. A prime example was Brian Ross asserting that Newt divorced his first wife while she was “being treated for cancer.” That account has been disputed, but no note of the dispute was made by Ross. There were only two sensational aspects of Marianne’s statement, neither of which ABC News tried to put in...

  • This Week's MSM Bias Award Goes to George Stephanopoulos

    Townhall.com ^ | January 10, 2012 | David Limbaugh
    We've been dealing with liberal media bias for years, but George Stephanopoulos' performance in the Republican presidential debate Saturday night in New Hampshire was particularly egregious. In many of these MSM-moderated debates, liberal moderators have tried to stir up personal fights between candidates, which diverts our focus from more important issues and, before national television audiences, shifts attention far away from Barack Obama and his disastrous agenda. Yes, these are debates among Republicans and designed to bring out distinctions among the candidates, but it should be up to the candidates to initiate and define those distinctions, and it is improper...
  • Gabrielle Giffords Special Ruined by Gratuitous Attack on Sarah Palin, Tea Party

    Yahoo! News ^ | Nov.15, 2011 | Mark Whittington
    COMMENTARY | The ABC News "20 20" special with Diane Sawyer that chronicled the struggle of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to regain her faculties after a brain injury as the result of a shooting in January was-for the most part-heart-warming and inspirational. The documentary, which also contained the first public interview with Giffords since the shooting, was ruined by a gratuitous attack on tea party opponents of health care reform and on Sarah Palin toward the end of the one-hour special. A short segment showed Giffords confronting an angry crowd of constituents at a town hall meeting. Palin was shown briefly,...

    Newsround: ABC TV / PBS NewsHour
    Diane Sawyer: "Moderate Islamists" government in Tunisia - What the heck is that? This ("moderate Islamists") was D. Sawyer's invented language today [Oct. 24, 2011]. (World News With Diane Sawyer - ABC) --- PBS NewsHour - Oct. 24, 2011 Gwen Ifill had guests: Michelle Dunn (Atlantic Journal) and Hisham Melhem, Washington bureau chief for Al-Arabiya TV. Surprisingly, it was Michelle Dunn that typically was caught up in the media romance-with-Arab-spring frenzy and lied/said that defended the 'Sharia' legalization in Tunisia. Whereas the Arab Muslim Hisham of al-Arabiya that was more defining it in clarity, 'Islamic law' being the main Vs...
