CBS’s Schieffer Empathizes with Obama: Did You Ever Say ‘Are We Ever Going to Get a Break?’

 

In his pre-recorded Face the Nation sit-down with President Barack Obama, CBS’s Bob Schieffer asked about putting more troops into Iraq, fighting ISIS, giving Congress a chance to act first on immigration and whether Democratic election losses were his fault, but he also devoted several questions to empathizing with Obama, as if Obama were a victim of circumstance and not responsible for failures or making situations worse: “You had a tough summer. We saw the rise of ISIS, the outbreak of Ebola, trouble in the Ukraine, illegal immigrants coming across the border, did you ever go back to the residence at night and say, ‘are we ever going to get a break here?’”

 

Halperin on ABC: GOP Must Take Risk and Confront Their Base

 

Appearing on ABC’s This Week w/ George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Mark Halperin co-host of With All Due Respect on Bloomberg, pressed the GOP to take “take some risks” after winning control of the Senate during this year’s midterm elections. Speaking during a panel discussion, Halperin argued that the GOP runs the risk “standing up to the Tea Party caucus and talk radio” but that they must take risks “if they want to do what’s good for their politics and good for the country.”

 

CNN’s Lemon: ‘Why Do People Vote Against Their Own Interests’ With ObamaCare?

 

CNN’s Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and Alisyn Camerota stuck to the left’s spin about the results of the 2014 midterm elections on Thursday’s CNN Tonight, as they discussed President Obama’s Wednesday press conference. Lemon wondered, “Why do people vote against their own interests? Because if you look at West Virginia, Kentucky, Arkansas…they put mostly Republicans in office…But they are the states that are benefiting the most from the Affordable Care Act.”

 

NBC: ‘Republicans Have Drawn Their Own Battle Lines’ By ‘Doubling Down’ On ObamaCare Repeal

 

In a report for Thursday’s NBC Today, White House correspondent Kristen Welker continued the network’s effort to preemptively blame Republicans for any gridlock that may occur in Washington following the GOP’s landslide win in Tuesday’s midterm election: “Republicans have drawn their own battle lines, doubling down on their pledge to repeal the President’s signature piece of legislation, ObamaCare, and vowing to approve the Keystone Pipeline, which the President has resisted.” Introducing the segment, fill-in co-host Willie Geist noted congressional leaders meeting with President Obama at the White House on Friday and wondered: “But can a lunch really do anything to break the long-standing gridlock in Washington?”

 

Nets Predicted Republican Doom With Hispanics, Yawn at GOP Surge

 

For years, liberal journalists have been predicting Republican doom with Hispanics, declaring that rage from the growing ethnic population would result in a permanent GOP minority. NBC’s Matt Lauer, for instance, wondered if the severe “damage” could be repaired. Yet, the Republican landslide on Tuesday was powered, in part, by a strong showing with Latinos. So far, this has been ignored by ABC, CBS and NBC.

 

IRS Admits They Never Looked for Lerner’s Missing Emails, Networks Skip Revelation

 

On November 5, Judicial Watch announced that the IRS admitted “that it failed to search any of the IRS standard computer systems for the ‘missing’ emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials.” So how many Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network stories have been dedicated to this latest revelation in the IRS scandal? 0.

 

CNN Hypes Laugh Similarity Between Joni Ernst and Disney Villain

 

On Friday’s CNN Newsroom, Brooke Baldwin played up the apparent similarity between Senator-elect Joni Ernst’s laugh and that of Cruella De Vil, the antagonist from Disney’s 101 Dalmations. Baldwin aired a short segment on Ernst and two newly-elected Republican women in Congress. She ended the part about the Iowa politician with her comparison: “Don’t forget about that laugh. Some people call it contagious; other people have likened it to this.” The anchor then twice played clips of Ernst laughing at her victory rally, followed by De Vil’s evil cackle.

MSNBC Pre-Spins Midterm Disaster: Dems Didn’t Tout Obama’s Successes

 

The liberals on MSNBC have already begun to pre-spin the reasons behind a possible Democratic disaster in Tuesday’s midterms: It’s because the party didn’t tout Barack Obama’s “accomplishments.” Host Ronan Farrow on Monday complained: “But, if these Democratic candidates are just flouting the President and at a time when he faces a tough environment on the hill already, sort of adding to his woes, do they risk alienating Democratic voters with that kind of divisiveness?”

 

NBC Continues to Have Doubts About a Possible GOP Senate Takeover

 

On Monday night, NBC continued to doubt the real possibility of the Republicans taking over control of the U.S. Senate following the midterm elections on Tuesday. Both NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams and NBC News political director and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd expressed reservations during the program’s opening five minutes, as Williams led off by describing the election as a “cliffhanger” with “several big races” that “have perhaps tightened.” Todd then followed with a segment reporting that “voters are conflicted” on who to vote for and, when added to their disgust with Washington, has created a situation where “eight of the most competitive Senate races are within four points and a whopping half of the nation’s 36 governors races are also too close to call.”

 

Brokaw: If GOP Wins Senate, ‘What Are They Prepared to Give to the Democrats?’

 

Appearing on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Monday, NBC News special correspondent Tom Brokaw was already urging Republicans support liberal agenda items if they win control of the Senate in Tuesday’s midterm election: The question then is, what are they prepared to give to the Democrats to meet them in the middle ground? What are they going to do about immigration? What are they going to do about the minimum wage?” Brokaw complained to fill-in host Peter Alexander: “Things have not been done in the last couple of years, in part, because both parties have staked out positions at either end of the spectrum and refused to meet in the middle.” However, Brokaw never wondered what Democrats were “prepared to give” to Republicans.

 

ABC to Offer Six Hours of Midterm Coverage…on the Internet

 

Considering that ABC’s World News Tonight failed to cover the midterm elections from September 1 to October 26, one might think the network isn’t interested in a possible Republican wave. ABC journalists are reinforcing that belief by promoting election night coverage: Seven hours of coverage. But six of those hours will be online only. Despite this, George Stephanopoulos hyped on Monday’s Good Morning America: “We’re covering this election more deeply than ever before.”

 

HBO Mini-Series on Limbaugh: ‘He’s a Liar and a Hatemonger – Makes Me Want to Puke’

 

Monday night on HBO viewers heard one of their stars call Rush Limbaugh an “idiot” and charge “he’s a liar and a hatemonger – makes me want to puke.” But it wasn’t Bill Maher. It was actress Frances McDormand in the second half of the pay network’s two-night Olive Kitteridge mini-series about the later years of life of a woman living in a coastal Maine town.

 

On PBS: Watch Hippie-Hypocrite Neil Young Sing ‘End Fracking Now’

 

On Thursday, Charlie Rose invited singer-songwriter Neil Young on his PBS show to promote his latest album and played a clip of the Woodstock-generation singer’s first single – basically an anthem against Big Oil called “Who’s Gonna Stand Up?” In the clip Young calls for the end of fossil fuel and fracking. Rose never once asked the environmental activist if he felt guilty about all the fossil fuels he’s used in his cars or his painting. Rose also never mentioned all the fossil fuels used in the promotion of Young’s over 50 year-long career in the production and transport of his vinyl records, tapes, CDs.

ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’ Finally Ends Midterm Blackout

 

After failing to mention the upcoming midterm election a single time since he took over the anchor desk of ABC’s World News Tonight on September 1, on Monday, David Muir finally informed viewers that a political contest with “enormous” stakes was just days away: “The countdown is on, this evening, to the midterm elections tonight. Your voice, your vote. Just eight days to go before this election. The stakes? Enormous. President Obama, already battling with a Republican House, will he soon face a Republican Senate?” It had been 137 days since the ABC evening newscast had made any mention of the 2014 midterms. The last story on the campaign occurred on June 11, when Muir – coincidentally filling in for then-World News anchor Diane Sawyer – reported on House Majority Leader Eric Cantor losing his Virginia congressional primary to candidate Dave Brat.

 

CBS Wonders If a Scott Walker Loss Will ‘Send a Message’ Nationwide About His ‘Policies and Politics’?

 

With the midterm elections one week away from Tuesday, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley profiled the race in Wisconsin for governor as incumbent Governor and Republican Scott Walker faces off against Democratic candidate Mary Burke. While it’s certainly worth covering governor’s races across the country, CBS News correspondent Dean Reynolds chose to use the occasion to go after Walker and his policies by asking Burke if a victory over Walker would “send a message to the rest of the country about the kind of policies and politics that he practices?”

 

Flummoxed Charlie Rose on Midterm Anger: ‘Why Is It They Don’t Like’ Obama?

 

The CBS This Morning crew on Tuesday alternated between confusion as to why Barack Obama may be driving Republicans to a big midterm victory and strident declarations that the GOP would have no mandate. Co-host Charlie Rose talked with political director John Dickerson and wondered of disenchanted voters: “So, why is it they don’t like this President so much? Is it a spillover from ObamaCare or something else?” Co-host Norah O’Donnell pre-spun the bad news: “If Republicans take control, they’re going to win in six Senate seats that Mitt Romney won by double digits in the last presidential election. Where’s the mandate for compromise in that?”

 

Norah O’Donnell Admits to Throwing ‘a Softball of a Question’ at Elizabeth Warren

 

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) appeared on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning to discuss next week’s midterm elections and the three CBS hosts eagerly threw softball questions at the Massachusetts Democrat. During the interview, Norah O’Donnell asked Senator Warren “what’s going to happen if Republicans take control?” before admitting “I guess that was a softball of a question, wasn’t it?”

 

On MSNBC, Graham Nash Blasts Koch Bros.; ‘Execution’ of Michael Brown

 

On Monday’s Morning Joe, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough prompted hippie icon Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, and Nash fame to promote his new song about the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Nash wildly contended that “what happened with…almost, the execution of Michael Brown, we had to say something.” He also took a shot at a regular boogeyman for MSNBC: the Koch brothers: “It’s appalling how many climate change deniers there are in this world that are paid to make sure that the Koch brothers can still sell all the stuff to us. And I often wonder, don’t the Koch brothers have children? Don’t they have grandchildren? Don’t they know what they’re doing in this quest for more money?”

CBS, NYT Ignore Own Poll Showing Obama Approval At 40%, Foreign Policy at Only 34%

 

On Wednesday, CBS and The New York Times made the point of omitting results from their own poll which show President Obama’s job approval at 40 percent and his approval on foreign policy at only 34 percent, from the newscasts and print newspaper, respectively. CBS This Morning and the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley only mentioned the latest CBS News/New York Times poll in regards to how 57 percent of Americans do not feel as though the President is being tough enough in dealing with the threat posed by the Islamic terrorist group ISIS. At the other end of the spectrum, only 31 percent of those asked said they approved of his handling of ISIS.

 

Broadcast Networks Black Out Coverage of Benghazi Hearing

 

The major broadcast networks on Wednesday refused to cover the first hearing held by the House Select Committee on Benghazi to begin assessing what happened in the 2012 attack that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty dead. Between their morning and evening newscasts, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC neglected to offer any stories on the bipartisan hearing chaired by Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who promised that: “[O]ur fellow citizens deserve all of the facts of what happened before, during, and after the attacks in Benghazi and they deserve an investigative process worthy of the memory of those who died and worthy of the trust of our fellow citizens.”

 

MSNBC and CNN Punt on Live Coverage of Benghazi Hearing; Fox News Airs Over 40 Min.

 

CNN and MSNBC viewers on Wednesday would have to switch channels if they wanted to watch the first hearing of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. CNN aired a 15-second news brief at the top of the 10 am Eastern hour, mere minutes before the nearly three-hour meeting began, but didn’t cover the proceedings live. MSNBC set aside 12 minutes worth of segments to the event, and sometimes showed split-screen video, but didn’t provide the audio. By contrast, Fox News Channel provided nearly 41 minutes (40 minutes, 51 seconds) of live coverage of the congressional committee’s hearing during the 10 am and 11 amEastern hours.

 

PBS Doc: Teddy Roosevelt An ‘Imperialist’ ‘Killer’ Who Glorified War

 

During the first installment of PBS’s The Roosevelts: An Intimate History on Sunday, historian Clay Jenkinson and former Newsweek editor turned historian Evan Thomas slammed Theodore Roosevelt as a bloodthirsty “imperialist” who promoted the “glorification of war” and built up a “cult” of personality. Speaking on Roosevelt’s command of the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War, Jenkinson proclaimed: “There’s no question that Roosevelt is an imperialist. Apologists like to try to play this down. But the fact is he’s probably the most significant imperialist in American history.” Jenkinson seemed troubled by Roosevelt’s call for the United States to “take our place in the world’s arena.”

 

Rosie O’Donnell Stunned at Idea Obama Doesn’t ‘Love People’

 

Rosie O’Donnell appeared shocked by the suggestion that Barack Obama “doesn’t love people.” The View co-host on Tuesday sparred with Republican Nicolle Wallace over the President and demonstrated that she’s still obsessed with George W. Bush. After Wallace asserted that Joe Biden has an easier time because “Joe Biden genuinely loves people,” the 9/11 truther sputtered: “So, are you implying that Obama doesn’t?…He doesn’t love people? Oh, wow.”

Crickets: Networks Avoid Democratic Gaffes and Scandals in 2014 Midterms

 

In 2012, gaffes and scandals by Republican candidates, such as Todd Akin, prompted a wave of coverage by the three networks. Yet, ill-conceived comments by Democrats in the 2014 midterms have created no such attention. Incumbent Colorado Senator Mark Udall made this cringe-inducing comment during last week’s debate in Colorado. Speaking of two beheaded Americans, he insisted, “Steve Sotloff and James Foley would tell us, don’t be impulsive. Horrible and barbarous as those executions were, don’t be impulsive.”

 

NBC’s Jansing: Midterm Outcome Could Change if Americans ‘Rally Around’ Obama

 

On Thursday’s NBC Nightly News, senior White House correspondent Chris Jansing provided not only spin favorable to President Obama a day after his prime time speech on ISIS, but also suggested that this could help the President in the midterm elections. At the conclusion of her report, Jansing told viewers: “It’s a war the President inherited with decisions made now shaping his legacy and his successor’s as well. Something else to watch, while it’s too soon to tell how voters will react to the President’s plan from last night, if they rally around the Commander-in-Chief it could impact the midterm elections with control of the Senate at stake.”

 

CNN’s Blitzer Refuses to Ask Susan Rice About Benghazi on Anniversary of Attack

 

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewed President Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice during Thursday’s edition of The Situation Room and neglected to bring up the second anniversary of the tragic attack in Benghazi, Libya that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith and CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty dead. Instead, the nearly eight-and-a-half-minute interview discussed President Obama’s speech to the nation from Wednesday night on ISIS and reaction to Diane Foley speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper about how she believed that the United States did not do enough to save her son Jim before he was brutally murdered by ISIS.

 

CNN Lobbies McCain to ‘Help the Administration Succeed’ with ISIS Strategy

 

On Thursday’s New Day, CNN’s Kate Bolduan hounded Senator John McCain to back President Obama’s new strategy to combat the Islamist terrorist group ISIS and help him gain congressional support: “We talk about how you are a critic of the administration. But now that there is a strategy, Senator – now that there is going to be action…how are you going to help the administration succeed now in implementing this?”

 

Networks Push Obama’s ‘Broad Coalition’ as Britain, Germany Drop Out

 

All three network morning shows on Thursday highlighted Barack Obama’s primetime speech from the night before, promoting his talk of a “broad coalition.” Yet, Germany and Britain have announced that they won’t take part in the President’s planned air strikes. In 2003, ABC, NBC and CBS hit George W. Bush for “going it alone” with a coalition of 18 countries.

 

Schieffer Undermines Obama Campaign’s Anti-al-Qaeda Talking Point He Advanced

 

CBS’s Bob Schieffer on Thursday night used the 9/11 anniversary as a chance to chastise Presidents Bush and Obama for making declarations that the war on terrorism had been won, but two and a half years ago Schieffer himself championed the Obama administration’s campaign boast. “The Obama administration declared Osama bin Laden dead and GM alive, as if the war on terror had been all but won, but, of course, it hasn’t.” During the 2012 campaign, however, Schieffer forwarded that very same talking point.
