Media BiASS: The Wasteland That is Today’s ‘News’!

CBS’s Pelley Glowingly Wonders How the Pope ‘Inspired’ Obama; Omits Religious Liberty Spat

Friday’s CBS Evening News featured a previously unaired portion of Scott Pelley’s softball interview of President Obama on his recent meeting with Pope Francis. The Vatican noted on Thursday that “there was a discussion on questions of particular relevance for the Church…such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection” – a reference to the Catholic Church’s objection to ObamaCare’s abortifacient/contraception mandate. But instead of asking about this discussion, Pelley gave the President the kid glove treatment, and wondered how the encounter affected the liberal politician: “What did the Pope say to you in that meeting that inspired you?”

Washington Post’s David Ignatius Cheers On Obama ‘Trying To Understand’ the Way Putin Sees the World

Appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, the Washington Post’s David Ignatius did his best to shill for President Obama following the President’s interview with CBS’s Scott Pelley. Following a clip of Obama relating how Putin sees the world — “I think he’s been willing to show a deeply held grievance about what he considers to be the loss of the Soviet Union” — the veteran Post reporter and columnist opined to host Bob Schieffer: “President Obama I thought was trying to do something that I just heard Henry Kissinger at a private gathering at Yale say, which is that it’s crucial for statesmen to try to see the world as their adversaries see it. And in that comment about the deeply held grievance that motivates Putin, I thought Obama was trying to do that.” Ignatius doubled-down in his defense of Obama and lectured that “ff Putin watched it he would say here is an American President who’s at least trying to understand the way I see the world.”

 

Networks Ignore Ultra-Low Support for ObamaCare; CBS Hypes ‘Surging’ Website Visits

Friday’s CBS Evening News picked up where the Big Three morning shows left off earlier in the day and trumpeted how “visitors have been surging to [HealthCare.gov] – about one-and-half million a day.” Scott Pelley did give a bit of slightly bad news during his 16-second news brief, noting that “today, the ObamaCare website was taken down for about 20 minutes, to fix a problem that affected log-ins.” However, the CBS evening newscast, along with Friday’s NBC Nightly News and ABC’s World News, glossed over the latest Associated Press poll, which found record-high disapproval of the controversial law: “[S]upport for President Barack Obama’s health care law is languishing at its lowest level since passage of the landmark legislation four years ago…26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act.” This omission continues a nearly three-month-long trend by the Big Three networks to paper over bad news about ObamaCare.

Networks Cheer ObamaCare ‘Sign-Up Surge’ as ‘Milestone,’ Ignore Lack of Young Enrollees

On Thursday evening and Friday morning, ABC, NBC, and CBS all touted a “surge” in sign-ups for ObamaCare ahead of Monday’s March 31 deadline. What none of the networks mentioned was that the percentage of young, healthy enrollees was still short of the minimum necessary to sustain the health care law. On ABC’s World News on Thursday, anchor Diane Sawyer hailed the enrollment numbers as an “achievement” for President Obama as she proclaimed: “ObamaCare has hit a new milestone. More than 6 million people have now signed up. That’s almost the original goal of 7 million. They have seen a surge in this final sprint before the deadline on March 31st…”

CBS Frets Over ‘Tough’ Abortion Law Being Upheld, Skips What Ruling Actually Means

While the CBS Evening News on Thursday and Good Morning America on Friday allowed mere seconds to explain a court ruling upholding “tough” “new abortion restrictions” in Texas, only Fox News fully detailed what the decision and law actually do. Evening News guest anchor Sharyn Alfonsi briefly informed, “A federal appeals court today upheld Texas’ new abortion restrictions, among the toughest in the nation. Many abortion clinics have closed since the law was passed.” On Friday’s GMA, Amy Robach did a little better, noting, “The law requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and then restricts the availability of abortion-inducing drugs.” But GMA offered a mere 18 seconds and CBS a scant 15 seconds. In contrast, Fox and Friends covered the story three times. Plus, Fox and Friends First co-host Heather Childers described it as “a win for pro-lifers in Texas.”

Big Three Blackout: No Mention of Issa Threatening Contempt Charges for IRS Chief

On Wednesday, Fox News reported that House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa threatened to hold the IRS commissioner in contempt of Congress if he didn’t hand over emails from Lois Lerner and other IRS officials. So far none of the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) network evening or morning shows have mentioned the latest development in the ongoing investigation of the IRS targeting Tea Party groups.

Networks Hail Bush 41 Getting ‘Profile in Courage’ Award for Hiking Taxes

All three network evening newscasts on Thursday found time to cheer the JFK Library Foundation announcing former President George H. W. Bush would the 2014 recipient of its annual Profile in Courage award. So what specific accomplishment did the organization cite from the Republican’s decades of public service? His decision to hike taxes in 1990 that cost him re-election and paved the way for Bill Clinton to become president. On NBC Nightly News, fill-in anchor Lester Holt proclaimed: “Bush had famously said, ‘Read my lips. No new taxes.’ His decision to break that promise not only took courage, as the award says, it also may have cost him re-election.”

Piers Morgan Uses Swan Song to Call for the Disarmament of U.S. Citizens

Piers Morgan got in one last word in favor of gun control during the final episode of his CNN program on Friday, and called for the complete disarmament of the American citizenry: “As my brother, a British army colonel, says, ‘You always want an American next to you in a trench when the going gets tough.’ But that’s where, I think, guns belong…in the hands of highly-trained men and women fighting for democracy and freedom, not in the hands of civilians.” Morgan blasted the NRA by name and politicians for standing in the way of his pet cause: “The gun lobby in America, lead by the NRA, has bullied this nation’s politicians into cowardly, supine silence.”

Media BiASS: Braying Jackasses for Obama and His Minions…

Blackout: Broadcast Networks Ignore GOP Bellwether Victory Against ObamaCare

After a Republican won a bellweather congressional election in Florida on Tuesday night, the broadcast networks made no mention of it on Wednesday evening, not even the CBS Evening News where, the night before, correspondent Nancy Cordes had made it clear the race had serious implications: “Both parties see this race as a referendum on the President’s health care law.” The Wednesday blackout came after the three networks gave a pittance of coverage to the victory on Wednesday morning. In addition, the NBC Nightly News on Wednesday refused to cover its own poll showing President Obama’s approval rating at an all-time low.

Networks Minimize Bad News for Dems, Tout Obama Shopping at the Gap

On Wednesday, the network morning shows gave a combined 53 seconds of air time to Democrats losing a bellwether congressional election in Florida and just 37 seconds to bad poll numbers for President Obama. Meanwhile, Obama shopping at the Gap and pushing regulations to force businesses to pay employees overtime wages got 3 minutes and 36 seconds of coverage.  On NBC’s Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie gushed: “You’re at the Gap, you’re trying to decide between the cranberry or maybe the indigo t-shirt, you look over and who is sizing up the same items but the leader of the free world….It happened to a store full of shoppers here in New York on Tuesday, President Obama popped in.”

CNN’s Cuomo Revolted By ‘Price is Right’ Music at GOP Rally; Omits Bob Barker Backed Candidate

On Wednesday’s New Day, CNN’s Chris Cuomo played up how Florida Republican David Jolly’s campaign played The Price is Right theme music at his victory rally on Tuesday, and remarked that its use was somehow a perfect sign of the influence of big money in political races: “What a metaphor for what politics has become – that they are playing the theme song of The Price is Right when they celebrate a victory, because it’s about the money! It makes me sick.” What Cuomo didn’t realize is that the former host of The Price is Right, Bob Barker, endorsed Jolly.

CBS Hypes That Millions ‘Stand to Benefit’ from Obama’s Attempt to Bypass Congress on Overtime Wages

CBS was the only network on Wednesday evening to report President Obama’s plan to bypass Congress and force businesses to pay management employees extra for overtime work. NBC and ABC both ignored the news. Yet CBS reported the news in a positive manner, noting how “an estimated 10 million workers stand to benefit from the President’s plan.” White House correspondent Major Garrett said it was “part of President Obama’s push to reduce income inequality.”

Uncritical CBS Continues to Gush Over Obama’s Fake Interview: ‘Bravo to the President!’

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday swooned over Barack Obama’s fake interview with an internet chat show host/actor. Offering almost no criticism of the viral video designed to boost ObamaCare enrollment, co-anchor Gayle King lauded, “Humor works. Bravo to Zach [Galifanakis] and bravo to the President!” In a follow-up interview with senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, King enthused over the Funny or Die video: “It’s certainly gone viral, which I would think you guys are doing the hula over there.” Jarrett assured her that “we are.” The Democratic strategist then shifted into full-commercial mode and told the hosts: “Everyone who is watching your show, go on the website today. HealthCare.gov. It’s working just fine.”

Media BiASS: ABC, CBS Notice Obama’s ‘Lowest Ever’ Approval Rating; NBC Out to Lunch

ABC, CBS Notice Obama’s ‘Lowest Ever’ Approval Rating; NBC Out to Lunch

On Tuesday, ABC’s World News and CBS Evening News both reported the latest poll numbers from the “respected” Quinnipiac University, as CBS’s Scott Pelley labeled the institution, regarding President Obama’s “lowest ever” approval rating, along with Americans’ dim view of the politician’s honesty. ABC’s Diane Sawyer noted that “for the first time in his presidency, a majority of American voters – 52 percent…say President Obama is not honest and trustworthy.” Both evening newscasts reported these numbers as they led into their coverage of former President Clinton’s recent word of advice to Obama on his health care law – that “the President should honor the commitment…[he] made to those people, and let them keep what they’ve got.” NBC Nightly News also devoted air time to Clinton’s remarks, but failed to mention the current President’s drooping approval number.

CNN’s Gupta Compares ObamaCare Plans to ‘Ferrari’

Once again, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta cast President Obama’s “you can keep your health care plan” lie as something much more innocent. On Tuesday’s Piers Morgan Live, he stated, “I think with regard to this idea of keeping the plans, I think that this is another example of the message really having been not properly given.” Gupta then switched to explaining benefits of ObamaCare — the plans are like a “Ferrari” compared with some of the current “[Ford] Pinto” plans — and noted what the White House should have told the millions of Americans who stood to lose their health insurance.

Doris Kearns-Goodwin Denies Media’s Been Soft on Obama

On Tuesday’s The Lead, liberal historian Doris Kearns Goodwin dismissed the notion that the media is in the tank for President Obama. “I don’t think the country would feel that his way of dealing with the country has been eased by the press,” she lamented of Obama and the media. “I think the press is much more complicated today. I think ever since Watergate there’s a more antagonistic view between presidents and press.”

NBC Host to RNC Chair: Shouldn’t GOP Be ‘More Timid’ Criticizing ObamaCare?

In the midst of the unmitigated disaster that has been the roll out of ObamaCare, on Saturday’s NBC Today, co-host Lester Holt had the audacity to suggest to Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus that Republicans should be the ones on defense: “…you took it on the chin when you fought it in the last budget battle. When we go back around to the budget in January, are Republicans gonna be a little more timid taking on health care, given the experience and given the lower approval ratings?” Priebus replied: “I think that the American people are seeing now how serious it was of a fight against ObamaCare….People are hurting and they’re losing their coverage and they’re paying more money that they can’t afford. It’s just not fair.”

ABC Frets Over ObamaCare ‘Glitch Girl,’ the ‘Most Despised Face on the Planet’

ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday spent over four minutes worrying about “glitch girl,” the woman who was featured on the ObamaCare webpage for weeks during the site’s disastrous rollout. Yet, the same program spent less time on the fact that the website likely will not be fixed by the November 30 deadline. Additionally, Josh Elliott dispatched in six seconds the news that a majority of Americans now find Barack Obama untrustworthy. Reporter Amy Robach focused on Adrianna (she did not want her last name used), the smiling woman who greeted frustrated Americans on HealthCare.gov. Robach hyperbolically announced, “It’s the face that launched a frenzied hunt.” Continuing the over-the-top language, Robach told the young woman, “You’ve been dubbed glitch girl, the most despised face on the planet.”

MSNBC’s Sharpton Sees Racial Tinge in Palin’s ‘Slavery,’ But Not Biden’s ‘Chains’

On MSNBC’s PoliticsNation show, host Al Sharpton criticized Sarah Palin for rhetorically comparing being in debt to another country to “slavery,” as he and his panel suggested that it sounds “racist.” But last year, Sharpton was far more tolerant of Vice President Joe Biden telling black audience members that Mitt Romney would put them “back in chains” as he complained about Romney wanting to “unchain Wall Street.” Sharpton and syndicated columnist Cynthia Tucker also incorrectly claimed that the national debt has been reduced when it is merely the amount of borrowing per year that has started decreasing.

ABC and CBS Spike Huge Pro-Life March, Yet Highlight Puny Pro-Gun Control Protest

The annual pro-life march, this year marking the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision, drew tens of thousands to Washington, DC on Friday, but didn’t garner a syllable of coverage on Friday’s World News on ABC nor the CBS Evening News. Yet on Saturday night, both newscasts highlighted a pro-gun control protest in DC which CBS anchor Jim Axelrod pegged at drawing “close to a thousand people.” The NBC Nightly News noted both protests and on Friday night also reported how a federal appeals court unanimously decided that President Obama violated the Constitution when he made recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board, a rebuke neither ABC nor CBS found newsworthy.

NBC and CBS Eagerly Promote New Assault Weapons Ban

On their evening and morning news shows on Thursday and Friday, NBC and CBS were quick to tout Democratic efforts to reimpose an assault weapons ban, with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams proclaiming the move to be “the latest step in the ongoing response to the Newtown, Connecticut school shootings.” On CBS Evening News, correspondent Nancy Cordes described the scene as the legislation was announced on Thursday: “Flanked by police officers, doctors, and mayors, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California made her case today for banning the types of weapons used to carry out mass shootings.” Cordes further highlighted the stagecraft: “Feinstein also asked half a dozen gun victims to share their stories, to give the measure a human face. Lilly Habtu was shot three times at Virginia Tech.”

Essential Liberty

“Hunting, according to these wizards of odd, is what [the Left] think our founding fathers had in mind when they penned that pesky Second Amendment, and according to these control freaks we don’t need a tactical weapon with a high capacity magazine to hunt with. First off, dipsticks, the Second Amendment has nada to do with hunting. The founding fathers weren’t worried about their right to put the bam to Bambi (although we should be because progressives hate hunting and would love nothing more than to bring that activity to a grinding halt). If you don’t believe me, just corner one of these little darlings and ask them what they think about hunting. Secondly, who are they to tell us what we ‘need’ or don’t need when it comes to anything? Typical of the Left, they think they know what’s best for we the people. If you want to talk about ‘needs,’ Ms. Leftist, we don’t need iPhones, Porsches, crazy straws, American Idol, beer, leaf blowers, and I don’t need a gorgeous Italian wife. But that’s America, folks. Stay out of our business.” –columnist Doug Giles
