    As they did last week along with the other networks, ABC led its Monday morning Good Morning America by hyping complaints from Democrats and liberals about the Trump Administration border policy. Correspondent Marcus Moore’s report even touted a celebrity’s curse-filled rant at the GOP without acknowledging the profanity. GMA started off its obsessive negative coverage with a report by White House correspondent Cecilia Vega, noting disapproval from first ladies Bush and Trump. “This is a policy that’s just eating away in terms of controversy at this White House,” Vega hyped, before adding that both Melania Trump and former First Lady...

    Wanna bet? On Good Morning America today, Robin Robert said that when she asked the lawyer for the two men arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks whether they were planning to sue Starbucks or the City of Philadelphia, he replied: “That’s not what they’re thinking about at this time. That they want to be a part of the process. Remember Kevin Johnson, the CEO, said that they wanted those gentlemen to be part of the process. They say they’re still working that out.” But here was the real tell: “They’re going to allow us, GMA, to follow along and follow up...

    About a year ago, the ice bucket challenge for ALS awareness was making the rounds on online videos. Now, we have Lemons for Leukemia. It’s sponsored by Be The Match, a bone marrow donation registry. Today, GMA was challenged. The anchors have challenged ‘The Rock’, Will Smith, and others. So, you soon be hearing or seeing more lemon eating videos. As a Leukemia survivor and Stem Cell Transplant recipient, I’m all for awareness regarding BMT/SCT’s. If you have ever thought about donating, they no longer draw through the bone. They use a method similar to donating platelets, only the stem...
  • Nets: Dems ‘Outraged’ at ‘Bombshell,’ ‘Controversial’ Memo; ABC, NBC Skip Latest on Clinton E-Mails

    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...

    At a Navajo veterans’ ceremony over the weekend, President Trump made a brief joke at Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren’s expense, calling her "Pocahontas," that left the media practically foaming at the mouth. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Matthew Dowd and Meghan McCain perhaps had the most overdramatic analysis of the comment, slamming it as a “gross” “attack” and a “racial slur,” on Good Morning America. Anchor George Stephanopoulos hyped that “the president raised a lot of eyebrows” with this comment, inviting “Republican” analysts Meghan McCain and Matthew Dowd to bash Trump. After playing the video clip of Trump saying Warren is known...

    Last week, The Washington Post reported that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore allegedly pursued relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s and that he allegedly molested a 14-year-old girl. It was the latest in the avalanche of recent sexual misconduct allegations sweeping the nation. And while many believed the claims, other took them with a grain of salt citing the timing as suspicious. On Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Martha Raddatz used her analysis to express her frustration and contempt for such people. “I don't really know what those voters are waiting for,” she huffed. ABC’s Chief Global...

    After accusing Trump-supporters of wanting to hurt reporters, ABC went on to claim that Trump hated the media because he hates the truth, on Wednesday’s Good Morning America. Not only that, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd stated, but Trump hates that that the Constitution protects freedom of the press. The negative allegations began after anchor George Stephanopoulos gushed that the media was “running out of times to say, ‘we’ve never seen anything like this before from someone in the White House.’” Dowd went on to rant that Trump was “stoking the fires” of “division” with this rhetoric against the media:...

    All three networks on Tuesday worried about Donald Trump’s “lack of curiosity” in the wake of a “startling” new climate change report. After discussing a draft report leaked to the New York Times, Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos sneered, “No word yet on whether they will suppress, dismiss, or endorse the report.” On CBS This Morning, Major Garrett offered a lecture: “The lack of comment from officials here and from those at some of the relevant federal agencies about this report's startling conclusions suggest not just skepticism but, at least initially, a lack of curiosity.” CBS Freaks Over Climate Study,...

    On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, anchor Robin Roberts and Nightline anchor Juju Chang touted a story of a mother and son both declaring themselves as transgender and getting gender re-assignment hormones and surgery. The two ABC anchors mutually gushed over the “incredible” “moving” and “touching” story. At the end of the report, Roberts and Chang even praised the courage of the mother for being “inspired” to change genders because of her child’s transformation.

    With less than two weeks until the presidential election, Donald Trump and his wife Melania sat down in an exclusive interview with George Stephanopolous to air on Thursday's Good Morning America. This is the first interview the couple has appeared in together following the presidential debates, and will also feature Trump's children Ivanka, Donald Jr., Eric and Tiffany. In the interview, Trump addressed criticism on the amount of time he's focused on his own businesses during his campaign and stated that his opponent Hillary Clinton took time off for less demanding reasons. "I built one of the great hotels of...

    Good Morning America anchor Amy Robach was under fire after she used a racial slur during a broadcast. During the Monday broadcast, Robach, who was filling in for Robin Roberts, used the words “colored people” while speaking about diversity or lack thereof in Hollywood. During the segment, Amy Robach used the term “colored people” when talking about the criticism Hollywood has received by giving most roles to Caucasian actors. Specifically, the segment dealt with the casting of mixed actress Zendaya as the reimagined Mary Jane in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. As the Inquisitr reported, many fans were up in arms...

    On Friday, NBC’s Today skipped any mention of CIA Director John Brennan detailing Obama administration failures in the fight against ISIS while testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee. The morning show ignored the major story despite Thursday’s NBC Nightly News devoting a nearly two-minute segment to the topic. On Nightly News, anchor Lester Holt declared: “Now to a stark warning here at home from the director of the CIA over the threat from ISIS. John Brennan told Congress today efforts to defeat ISIS on the battlefield have not put a dent in the group's ability to carry out terror attacks....

    Although NBC and CBS on Friday covered the “unprecedented,” “deep frustration” that diplomats at the State Department have for Barack Obama’s Syria policy, ABC’s Good Morning America allowed a scant 18 seconds to the move against Obama. This is despite allowing 14 minutes to a Demi Lovato rock concert, clearly not as important a topic.  Here is the total of GMA’s coverage on Friday from news anchor Amy Robach: “President Obama's policies in the Middle East coming under fire. This time from diplomats at the State Department. More than 50 diplomats have signed a memo urging the President to launch...

    Less than a year ago, ABC's George Stephanopoulos admitted that he had made $75,000 of undisclosed contributions to the charitable foundation/campaign operation of his former employers, Bill and Hillary Clinton. He then personally pledged he wouldn't moderate a Republican primary debate this year. But ABC News later issued a statement of support for Stephanopoulos, insisting it wouldn't take punitive action against him. It's bad enough that ABC never even considered removing this self-evident Clinton loyalist from his "objective" political coverage position. They even allow him to conduct softball interviews with Hillary Clinton, and won't even insist on reminding viewers of...

    She needed a little more “me time.” Meghann Foye — the author of “Meternity” — bailed on her Friday “Good Morning America” interview at the last minute, facing intense backlash from moms and childless women who say she’s deeply mistaken about maternity leave. “Meghann was supposed to join us right here live,” “GMA” host Amy Robach announced. “She has just pulled out of the interview. There has been so much backlash about her comments, viewers across the country weighing in on this all night long.”

    Gag me with a steak and kidney pie . . . It's the most blatant example of the MSM glossing over an Obama controversy in favor of featuring a feel-good story that this NewsBuster can remember. Today's Good Morning America went gaga over Britain's little Prince George, with no fewer than four teases followed by a lengthy segment devoted to how much President Obama enjoyed the company of the tyke on his current visit to the UK. Lots of cute pictures and even a clip of Obama claiming "nothing was going to stop me from . . . meeting George,...

    We've come to expect dissimulation and manipulation from the news media in our country, especially major commercial and public broadcasting networks, national newspapers and prominent Web aggregators such as the Huffington Post and Buzzfeed. We've seen this repeatedly in foreign affairs coverage, which has led to a host of disastrous policy decisions in countries ranging from Somalia, to Kosovo, to Libya, and now Syria. Perhaps the most catastrophic result of media deception and obfuscation can be seen in Europe, which is in the process of being subsumed by a mass of Middle Eastern, North African, and Central Asian refugees with...

    I had the dubious honor of being invited to participate in Good Morning America’s first presidential town hall Monday morning, featuring Senator Cruz and his wife Heidi. Although I did not learn anything new, the experience did reaffirm some preexisting beliefs about both the news media-particularly, the way it frames narratives-as well as Ted Cruz, almost none of them flattering. I suppose you shouldn’t expect much from a segment billed as Coffee with the Candidates, yet I still entered the studio with relatively high expectations, most of which would be dashed over the course of the next hour. The trouble...
