In Two Days, Networks Devote 25 Minutes to Rick Perry’s Indictment

 

In just two days, the three network morning and evening shows deluged viewers with over 25 minutes of coverage (17 stories) on the indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry. These programs made sure to speculate as to whether the controversy could “end any chance” for the Republican in 2016. The indictment came after Perry lobbied for Texas District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunk driving conviction. From Saturday morning through Monday morning, CBS offered the most amount of coverage, five stories over nine minutes and 14 seconds. Over the same period, ABC produced six segments (or eight minutes and 48 seconds). NBC delivered six segments for of seven minutes and 37 seconds.

 

ABC Continues Network Cheerleading of Perry Indictment: ‘A Kind of High Noon

 

In the wake of the “big three” networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) devoting 25 minutes to the indictment of Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) in the story’s first two days, ABC’s World News with Diane Sawyer continued the network obsession with the potential 2016 presidential candidate. On Monday, August 18, anchor Diane Sawyer introduced a report on Perry by proclaiming “back here at home to Texas and a kind of high noon for Texas Governor Rick Perry facing indictment, but defiant again today.” Jim Avila did his best to discredit the governor’s argument: “Perry’s defense team played the tape again for reporters today and on radio late this afternoon the governor vowed to expose what he calls a political farce despite the fact that both the judge who appointed the special prosecutor and the special prosecutor himself are Bush appointed Republicans.”

MSNBC’s Halperin on Perry Indictment: ‘This Is the Stupidest Thing I’ve Seen, I Think, in My Entire Career’

 

On Monday’s Morning Joe on MSNBC, MSNBC contributor and Managing Editor of Bloomberg Politics Mark Halperin slammed the indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) by an Austin, Texas-area grand jury for threatening to veto funding for a Democratic District Attorney’s public integrity unit after she was convicted of a DUI as “the stupidest thing I’ve seen, I think, in my entire career.” Expanding further on his opinion, Halperin added: “I hope some judge throws it out right away. It’s not just kind of funny and ridiculous, but it’s an infringement on individual liberty. He’s got a First Amendment right just cause he’s governor of Texas and I think it’s – like you said, it’s easy to joke about this, but this is a serious thing. It is ridiculous that he was indicted for this. Ridiculous.”

NBC’s Mitchell Declares Al Sharpton In Ferguson ‘On a Peace Mission’

Networks Continue to Hype Perry Indictment, Ignore Prominent Liberals Defending Him

 

All three network morning shows on Monday continued to hype the Friday indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry, but none of the broadcasts mentioned prominent liberals like Obama adviser David Axelrod or Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz coming to Perry’s defense and dismissing the charges as politically motivated. On NBC’s Today, correspondent Peter Alexander proclaimed Perry to be “the first Texas governor to be indicted in nearly a century.” The reporter then attempted to paint the entire field of possible 2016 Republican presidential candidates as plagued by scandal: “It’s another possible 2016 contender with a blemish on his resume. You’ve got Perry’s indictment, Chris Christie’s bridgegate, and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker under new scrutiny for allegations of campaign finance violations.”

 

ABC, CBS Hype Perry Indictment, Promote ‘Political Embarrassment of a Mugshot’

 

Following the indictment of Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) for threatening to veto funding for the state’s public integrity unit after a Democratic District Attorney refused to resign for a drunk driving incident, ABC and CBS did their best to play up the charges against the Texas Republican. CBS reporter Manuel Bojorquez provided the most hyperbolic commentary by proclaiming “even if he is eventually cleared of these charges, he may have to deal with the political embarrassment of a mugshot.” On Saturday, August 16 all three network evening newscasts did provide numerous soundbites of Governor Perry’s repudiation of the charges against him, however only NBC Nightly News bothered to include any quotes of both Republicans and Democrats who have condemned the indictment.

ABC and NBC Censor Latest IRS Outrage, CBS Gives Story Only 19 Seconds

I think this might be the President’s maybe twentieth Katrina moment.”

Host Don Lemon wondered, “Will the panel reflect American politics?” When Conway asserted that the program didn’t need to be political, Behar sarcastically asked if the conservative pollster wanted the job. Conway replied, “No, no, no. I think they’re not really looking for a real conservative.”
