ABC, NBC Continue to Omit Coverage of Report Alleging WH Role in Prostitution Scandal

 

According to a report in The Washington Post, senior White House officials knew that an individual with the White House advance team had a prostitute spend the night with him as part of the 2012 Colombian prostitution scandal despite the White House previously denying any involvement during the official investigation. After failing to cover the story on their morning newscasts, ABC and NBC continued that blackout into their Thursday evening newscasts as well. The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley ignored the story as well, despite the network having aired a full report on Thursday’s CBS This Morning.

 

ABC and NBC Ignore Report Claiming White House Lied About Prostitution Scandal

 

On Thursday morning, the Washington Post reported that senior White House officials knew that an Obama volunteer hired a prostitute during the infamous Columbia prostitution scandal of 2012 but Team Obama tried to hide such information during the official investigation. Despite the Post report, CBS This Morning was the only network morning show to acknowledge the story during its Thursday morning broadcast. ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today predictably ignored the report altogether.

 

Rosie O’Donnell Endorses: Jimmy Carter Is ‘My Favorite President Ever’

 

View co-host and 9/11 Truther Rosie O’Donnell on Thursday gushed over Jimmy Carter: “He’s not just a Democrat. I think he is a man of peace.” O’Donnell, who on Tuesday blamed the creation of ISIS on the United States, continued, “He is my favorite president ever and, I think, probably, the most pious human being I’ve ever met in my life.” She added, “I have tremendous respect, admiration for him and his wife.” Co-host Whoopi Goldberg offered an unimpressed shrug. She responded, “He’s okay.” The topic came up on the show after Carter spoke out, criticizing Obama’s handling of the terror group ISIS.

 

Former CNN Pundit Roland Martin Rips ‘Cowardly Bullies’ at the NRA

 

In a Thursday column for The Daily Beast, former CNN contributor Roland Martin attacked the supposed “cowardly bullies” at the National Rifle Association for opposing President Obama’s surgical general nominee. Martin’s op-ed follows in the footsteps of MSNBC’s Krystal Ball and NBC’s Anne Thompson, who politicized the Ebola crisis nearly a week earlier when they bemoaned that due to “Senate dysfunction and NRA opposition, we don’t have a surgeon general right now.”

 

U.S. President In ABC Prime Time: ‘Right to Bear Arms’ in Constitution and ‘So Was Slavery’

 

ABC’s Scandal, which has a fresh episode tonight (Thursday), last week featured “President Fitzgerald Grant,” supposedly a Republican, channeling Piers Morgan as he used the State of the Union address to plead for more gun control: “How many other people’s children are we going to let die before we put a stop to this?” “Grant,” played by Tony Goldwyn, recalled how his teen son died of a “fluke” infection, but “there were thousands of people last year who lost their lives in a completely avoidable way.” He then compared gun rights with slavery: “The right to bear arms — set in stone in the Constitution by our founding fathers. So was slavery, by the way.”

Networks Ignore GAO’s Study on ObamaCare Accepting Fake Applications; NBC Touts Enrollment

 

The Big Three networks’ morning and evening newscasts have yet to cover the Government Accountability Office’s undercover tests of ObamaCare’s sign-up systems that uncovered that fraudulent documents were able to procure federal health plans and subsidies. On Wednesday, Amy Goldstein of the Washington Post reported that “undercover GAO investigators tried to obtain health plans for a dozen fictitious applicants….All but one of the fake applicants ended up getting subsidized coverage — and have kept it.” Brian Williams skipped this GAO investigation on Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News, but set aside 21 seconds of air time to tout the latest enrollment numbers for ObamaCare.

 

ABC, NBC Ignore Obama’s West Coast Fundraising Trip Amid Turmoil in Ukraine and Israel

 

ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today continued to ignore President Obama’s fundraising trips across the country Wednesday morning as he spent Tuesday raising money for Democrats in California and Washington state. While CBS This Morning did mention that Obama was on the West Coast for fundraisers and that it has drawn criticism from Republicans, it lasted for only 27 seconds. Among the news stories covered at the top of the 8:00 a.m. hour, co-host Gayle King read a news brief in which she stated that “President Obama faces criticism this morning for following through with a fund-raising trip to the West Coast.” King mentioned that Obama made stops in two states to raise money for Democrats and added that: “Many Republicans say that his priorities should be focused on the tensions with Russia and the turmoil in the Middle East.”

 

NBC Spotlights Bloomberg Blasting FAA for Suspending Flights to Israel; ABC, CBS Omit

 

Wednesday’s NBC Nightly News was the sole Big Three evening newscast to notice the criticism of the Obama administration banning U.S. airliners from traveling to Israel. Prominent politicians from both sides of the political spectrum, including Senator Ted Cruz and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, have denounced this move by the FAA. Senator Cruz accused the administration of using the “federal regulatory agency to launch an economic boycott on Israel.”

 

NBC Discovers Hypocrisy of Michael Moore’s Wealth; Used Him to Bash Wall Street in Past

 

On Wednesday, NBC’s Today offered a surprising full report on “filmmaker and liberal activist” Michael Moore tarnishing his “blue-collar, anti-capitalist image” after it was revealed during divorce proceedings that Moore and his now ex-wife lived in a Michigan mansion, “the 10,000-square-foot house, reportedly in the same neighborhood as Madonna and Bruce Willis.” Back in 2009, the morning show invited Moore on the broadcast to bash big bonuses for Wall Street executives. In part, Moore ranted against the wealthy business leaders living in “gated communities” and “castles with moats around them.” Perhaps Moore should have remembered that people living in giant mansions shouldn’t throw stones.

Washington Post’s Dionne Spins for IRS Misdeeds: ‘Trying To Do What Needs To Be Done’

 

Liberal Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne did his best to spin on behalf of the IRS over their targeting of conservative groups during an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press. Dionne was part of the panel on Sunday, June 22 and insisted: “The problem with the IRS story is the IRS was trying to do what needs to be done, which is there is an abuse of the 501 (c)(4) status. You should not have all these political groups getting that status. That’s what they were trying to fix.”

 

Networks Finally Notice IRS’s ‘Black Eye’ Due to ‘Lost’ Lois Lerner E-Mails

 

The Big Three networks’ Friday evening newscasts finally noticed the latest development in the IRS scandal after Rep. Paul Ryan grilled Commissioner John Koskinen earlier in the day. It was the first ABC, CBS or NBC evening newscast mention of the IRS since news of the missing e-mail broke a week erlier. ABC’s David Muir spotlighted “the outrage…involving the IRS claiming to have lost thousands of crucial documents – lawmakers asking, how can the tax man be let off the hook for losing documents, while ordinary taxpayers would never get away with that?” NBC’s Brian Williams noted how Koskinen claimed that the IRS “lost evidence in the investigation into how they handled conservative political groups…and given how long the IRS holds on to things like our tax returns, some members of Congress just aren’t buying it”

 

NBC’s Today Peddles Obama Talking Points, Avoids Using Term ‘Illegal’ When Discussing Crisis at Border

 

On Sunday, June 22, NBC’s Kristen Welker did her best to cover up the fact that the more than 170,000 illegal immigrants who have been captured crossing the Mexican border since October 2013 are actually illegally entering the United States. In a 90 second report on Sunday, it took Ms. Welker 85 seconds before she used the term “illegal” in her report with Today co-host describing the situation as merely a “surge of immigrants coming into this country.” The on-screen graphic that accompanied the report failed to use the term “illegal” either instead choosing the politically correct term “migrants” to describe the situation.

 

ABC’s Stephanopoulos to Sonia Sotomayor: Does Sexism Go Away Now That You’re On the Supreme Court?

 

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, co-host of Good Morning America and moderator of This Week, sat down with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for an interview that aired on Sunday’s This Week. The interview, which was more of a glowing profile of Ms. Sotomayor, touched on a variety of subjects ranging from her recent encounter with Hillary Clinton to whether or not the justice still experienced sexism on the bench. Stephanopoulos wondered “You also write in your book about some of the sexism you faced even as a prosecutor. Any as a Supreme Court justice or does it go away?”

 

CBS and NBC Skip New VA Scandal Outrage; ABC Gives News Just 14 Seconds

 

Despite the newest revelation in the Veterans Affairs scandal on Thursday that one in ten veterans have to wait at least one mont before they can get an appoint to see a doctor, CBS and NBC refused to cover the latest news in both their evening news shows on Thursdaynight as well as their morning shows on Friday morning. ABC News only gave 14 seconds of coverage to the issue in a news brief during the 7:00 am hour on Friday’s Good Morning America while CBS News instead published an article about it on their website Thursdayafternoon.

 

NBC Gushes Over ‘Outspoken Road Warrior’ John Kerry; Touts ‘Bromance’ With Leonardo DiCaprio

 

Following a tough grilling of Secretary of State John Kerry in the first part of her interview aired on Thursdayon Friday, NBC Today co-host Savannah Guthrie revealed that the rest of her time spent with Kerry was mostly devoted to fluff and softballs: “From breakfast with senators and the ceremonial duties of office to back-to-back trips to the White House, Secretary of State John Kerry has taken his new job and run with it….the once-staid senator now one of the President’s most outspoken road warriors.” Guthrie observed: “It seems to me that you are looser than you’ve ever been.” Kerry replied: “You know, after years and years in public life, I know who I am. I know what I want to achieve.”

GOA: Thank You for Tying up the Capitol Hill Phone Lines on the Anti-gun Amnesty Bill

Thank You for Tying up the Capitol Hill Phone Lines
on the Anti-gun Amnesty Bill

Your voice has made a difference!

 

“One thing that’s not being reported about this whole immigration thing is the degree to which it’s opposed by the people in this country,” said Rush Limbaugh.  “You try calling, you can’t get through [because] you are inundating them.  You are overwhelming them.”

The U.S. Senate passed the anti-gun amnesty bill today on a 68-32 vote.

Through this long, hard fight, you guys tied up the Capitol Hill phone lines in opposition to the bill.  And your voice has resonated, much to the chagrin of the anti-gun politicos on Capitol Hill.

At first blush, the final tally might seem like an overwhelming loss for our side, but the fact is, it represents the proverbial “kiss of death” for Chuck Schumer’s anti-gun, amnesty forces.

Senator Schumer & Co. fell far short of the goal they set for passing the amnesty bill — a goal they HAD TO ACHIEVE if they were going to have ANY momentum at all in the House.

Chuck Todd, a perennial water-carrier for the Obama administration, lamented this on MSNBC this week:

“The sweet spot was 75-plus in the Senate because that number would have meant that they would have gotten half of the Republican conference [and would put pressure on House Republicans].  Instead, it looks like they are not going to get that.”

Several times, Senator Schumer tried to achieve his “sweet spot” of 70-75 votes -– which would have allowed him to claim that his bill had momentum going into the House.

But several times, Schumer failed.  And on the final vote, he fell almost ten votes short of what he needed.

This is just the beginning of the bad news in store for Schumer.  Now that his bill goes over to the House, we have a really nasty surprise for him.

It’s called a “blue slip,” and Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) is pushing the House leadership to pass a blue slip resolution that would send the Senate amnesty bill into the trash heap because it raises taxes — an initiative that, under the Constitution, must begin in the House of Representatives.

This is not the only problem the Senate bill has.  In addition to the blue slip problem, both liberal and conservative media are declaring the bill is “Dead on Arrival” in the House for various reasons:

* We have revived the “Hastert Rule,” and Boehner is now saying that he won’t bring up the Senate-passed immigration bill for a vote.

* Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) was quoted in The Washington Post yesterday as saying that the House won’t seriously debate any immigration reform until mid-Fall.

* And in the Senate, we will filibuster any effort to stick it onto a new House-initiated vehicle.

Trust us that the media would have used a 70-80 vote margin to try to create the impression of massive bipartisan momentum. They can’t do that easily now.

Now that the Senate has finished its consideration of the amnesty bill, the battle moves to the House — probably in a few months.  So now’s a good time for everyone to send a parting, closing shot to their Senators.

You can see how your Senators voted here.  Every Democrat voted for the bill, including the following 14 Republicans:  Alexander (TN), Ayotte (NH), Chiesa (NJ), Collins (ME), Corker (TN), Flake (AZ), Graham (SC), Hatch (UT), Heller (NV), Hoeven (ND), Kirk (IL), McCain (AZ), Murkowski (AK) and Rubio (FL).

ACTION:  Contact your Senators Please thank those Senators who voted against the anti-gun amnesty bill and reprimand those who voted for it.
