Networks Hype Obama’s ‘Special Bond’ With the Pope, Downplay Disagreements

Thursday’s network morning shows tripped over themselves in their rush to fawn over President Obama meeting Pope Francis for the first time at the Vatican. At the top of ABC’s Good Morning America, co-host Robin Roberts touted how the President “feels a special bond with the Pontiff.” On NBC’s Today, chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd spoke of an “ideological comfort level” between the two leaders, while on CBS This Morning, White House correspondent Major Garrett described their “genuine connection.” While ABC, NBC, and CBS provided a combined 14 minutes 30 seconds of coverage to the papal meeting on Thursday, only 2 minutes 21 seconds of that air time referred to the fundamental disagreements between Obama and the Pope on a host of issues. Instead, the morning broadcasts chose to play up the “common ground” between the two men on issues of “income inequality” and “social justice.”

NBC and CBS Hope Pontiff’s Popularity Rubs Off On Obama

During coverage of President’s Obama meeting with Pope Francis on Thursday, both NBC’s Today and CBS This Morning hoped the papal visit would boost the commander-in-chief’s sinking poll numbers. Today co-host Matt Lauer wondered: “The Pope, enormously popular….Is there something in just rubbing elbows with the Pope for President Obama?”  Chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd observed: “I think that the President, particularly right now where his own approval ratings are not so hot, just being seen with the Pope, particularly in some places where there are a lot of Catholic voters in the United States, it’s not gonna hurt. So, yes, I think the White House sees this as a potential political up side.”

ABC Touts ‘Bond’ Between Obama and Pope; Forgets the Administration’s Birth Control Mandate

All the networks gave positive coverage on Thursday evening to President Obama’s meeting with Pope Francis, but ABC left out the elephant in the room, the massive conflict between the Obama administration and the U.S. Catholic Bishops over the birth control mandate. Each network reported a happy meeting; both ABC and NBC called it “historic.” All the networks highlighted the consensus between the two men on fighting poverty, as ABC noted a “bond” between the two men. “While the two men don’t see eye-to-eye on social issues like abortion and gay marriage, they have clearly formed a bond in other areas, especially in seeing fighting poverty as a moral responsibility,” ABC’s Jonathan Karl reported. However, ABC skipped the conflict between Obama and the American Catholic Bishops that at least CBS and NBC reported.

NYT Compares Obama to the Pope: Each ‘Burst’ Forth ‘as a History-Making Change Agent’

New York Times journalists Jim Yardley and Michael Shear on Thursday compared Barack Obama to Pope Francis. According to the writers, the pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage Barack Obama and the pro-life, anti-gay marriage religious leader have a lot in common. Yardley and Shear connected “an Argentine pope and an American president who each burst onto the global scene as a history-making change agent.” They insisted that each arrived “promising to promote a new post-partisan ethos, each having made the cover of Rolling Stone.”

ABC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS All Skip Political ID for ‘Shocking’ Corruption By Democratic Mayor

ABC, CNN, MSNBC and PBS on Wednesday and Thursday all covered the “shocking” corruption involving the Democratic mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina. Yet, while talking about the tens of thousands of dollars in bribes he sought, none of these networks identified Patrick Cannon’s political party. Only a Fox News host referred to him as a Democrat. On ABC’s Good Morning America, Amy Robach asserted, “Well, the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina has resigned after being arrested during an FBI sting.” On CNN’s New Day, Christine Romans informed that undercover FBI agents “got the mayor to take almost $50,000 in bribes in exchange for favorable treatment by the city.” In contrast, Fox News Jamie Colby revealed, “There’s another Democrat in trouble over accusations of corruption.”

NBC’s Lauer Jokes Nancy Pelosi Needs ‘Food Taster’ for Birthday Gift from John Boehner

On Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer couldn’t resist mocking a nice gesture from House Speaker John Boehner to Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. News reader Tamron Hall explained: “…the House Speaker knows that his Democratic counterpart Nancy Pelosi just loves chocolate. So, for her 74th birthday on Wednesday he gave her something sweet, pints of chocolate gelato.”  Moments later, Lauer remarked: “If there’s ever a need for a food taster, that would be it right there.” After a chorus of “ohs” from his fellow hosts, he added: “I’m kidding.

Networks Parrot White House Spin That Latest ObamaCare Delay Due to ‘Surge in Demand’

On Wednesday, all three network morning shows repeated the White House line that the reason for delaying the March 31 ObamaCare enrollment deadline was due to a last-minute “surge” of people signing up. In a 20-second news brief on NBC’s Today, fill-in news reader Tamron Hall announced “a reprieve this morning for people who’ve been trying to sign up for ObamaCare,” before noting that “the Health and Human Services Department says there has been a last-minute surge in demand.”  During a 17-second news brief on ABC’s Good Morning America, fill-in news reader Amy Robach gently described the law’s new setback as a sign-up “grace period” and declared: “…the White House predicts a crush of applicants in the final hours could cause a computer traffic jam.”

Ed Schultz: Funding Charter Schools ‘Breeds and Feeds the Next Generation of Segregation’

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz on Wednesday slammed charter schools in America, sneering that funding them “breeds and feeds the next generation of segregation in America.” [See video below. MP3 audio here.] The Ed Show host talked to fellow liberal Michael Eric Dyson who complained about public schools having to compete against charter schools. He insisted, “If you would supply money to these public schools, then they could do equally as well.” Of course, public schools in Washington D.C., for instance, spend almost $30,000 per student.

NBC Blames Bush for ‘Broken System’ of Education, No Mention of Obama

Introducing a story on Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer touted the Washington Post publishing the resignation letter of Massachusetts kindergarten teacher Suzi Sluyter, who decided to quit her job after being “frustrated by what she says is too much emphasis on test scores and testing instead of the kids themselves.”  In the report that followed – amid clips of Sluyter reciting her letter on camera – correspondent Ron Mott declared: “A sobering assessment about standardized tests, how children are damaged by what she calls a broken system more focused on scoring them.” He soon found who to blame: “When President George W. Bush signed No Child Left Behind into law in 2002, supporters applauded the sweeping reform for holding schools and teachers accountable for student performance. But it wasn’t long before complaints surfaced.” Meanwhile, the current President of the United States, Barack Obama, was not mentioned once during the segment. That despite his administration backing the increasingly controversial Common Core education standards.

Foreign Media, Fox News Cover British Prenatal Incineration Scandal; Other Media Out to Lunch

On Monday, The UK’s Daily Telegraph spotlighted the scoop of another British media outlet, Channel 4, which discovered the beyond abhorrent practice of 10 NHS hospitals incinerating over 15,000 bodies of unborn babies from miscarriages and abortions. The investigation by the Channel 4 program Dispatches found that some of the infants’ remains were even used to heat the medical facilities. This scandal, which got picked up by newspapers across much of the Anglosphere – including The Vancouver Sun and The Ottawa Citizen in Canada – has yet to receive wide coverage in the United States. So far, the only TV outlet to devote air time to the story was Monday’s The Five on Fox News Channel.

MSNBC Devotes 16 Minutes of Coverage to ‘Indefensible, ‘ ‘Racist’ Redskins ‘Slur’

With all the important things going on in the world, MSNBC on Tuesday chose to devote 16 minutes of coverage over four shows to the “indefensible,” “racist” “slur” that is the Washington Redskins logo. The fight to force team owner Dan Snyder to change the name came up on Morning Joe, The Reid Report, All In With Chris Hayes and The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell. Hayes began his coverage by sneering, “Dan Snyder is the owner of the NFL’s Washington, D.C. football team, whose name might be the last racial slur you can get away with saying at work.” The host cited NBC colleague Bob Costas’s 2013 rant as proof of a groundswell, adding, “With this kind of pressure building against it, it is getting harder and harder for Dan Snyder to defend the team’s name, to defend what is really indefensible.”

Media BiASS: Ungrateful Bob Gates ‘Blindsided’ White House With ‘Blistering New Memoir’

NBC: Ungrateful Bob Gates ‘Blindsided’ White House With ‘Blistering New Memoir’

At the top of Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer portrayed former Defense Secretary Robert Gates as an ungrateful and disgruntled ex-employee: “Blindsided. President Obama’s former Defense Secretary Robert Gates takes on his old boss – the man who awarded him the Medal of Freedom – in a blistering new memoir. This morning, what may have made him turn?”  In the report that followed later, correspondent Andrea Mitchell fretted: “President Obama’s decision to keep George Bush’s defense secretary, a Republican, has now blown back on the White House.” Like Lauer, she made sure to note how Obama had honored Gates: “Gates gave no hint of his resentment when he left the cabinet two years ago and President Obama awarded him the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.”

Networks Ignore Gun Company Putting U.S. Troops First, Rejecting $15 Million Deal With Pakistan

A Utah-based gun manufacturer turned down a $15 million contract with Pakistan in the name of keeping weapons from falling into the hands of America’s enemies. ABC, CBS and NBC, networks that routinely demonize the firearms industry and promote gun control, ignored this positive story. Only Fox News highlighted Desert Tech’s decision to put the troops before profit. Fox and Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday explained, “Fifteen million is a lot of money. But for this Utah gun manufacturing company, it represents more than a year of solid business.” He added, “So, you think they would jump at the chance to make 15 million bucks in one day. But the guys at Desert Tech said no because the weapons were headed to Pakistan.”

CBS’s Giles Complains ObamaCare Fiasco Over-Covered by Media

On Monday’s All In show on MSNBC, during a discussion of what stories were over-covered or under-covered by the media in 2013, CBS contributor Nancy Giles griped that the HealthCare.Gov glitches were overecovered, and seemed to suggest that hackers may have been to blame for ObamaCare’s rollout problems. Giles began: “I thought the Healthcare.gov Web site glitches, I thought they were kind of covered without context, like, there was no mention of whether they could have been hacked. I saw all these different Web sites, you know, KillObamacare.Gov, you know, all kinds of problems that could have happened that way, site tampering, and there were a lot of people that signed up by phone and got on successfully. So I felt like the fixture on the Web site problems were a little too much.”

ABC Touts ObamaCare’s Popularity, While NBC Reports Website Problems

For the second straight morning, ABC’s Jonathan Karl was merely a White House stenographer when reporting on ObamaCare’s year-end deadline, touting enrollment numbers and parroting White House talking points. Tuesday’s Good Morning America framed the latest ObamaCare delay as a result of the law’s popularity, as opposed to NBC reporting that it was, at least in part, due to website issues. “A crush of visitors to the website yesterday caused the White House to expand this year’s deadline for signing up through the end of today,” co-host George Stephanopoulos reported.

NBC Goes Easy on ObamaCare, Downplays Gov’t Coercion of Insurers

NBC’s Today softened any criticism of ObamaCare on Monday at the deadline to purchase health coverage for the new year. White House correspondent Peter Alexander framed long wait times on the Washington, D.C. health exchange as evidence of “a last-minute spike in demand.” And even though he reported that current enrollment numbers are “far shy” of what the administration hoped for, Alexander cited “experts” downplaying the importance of the numbers.

MSNBC’s Sharpton Slams ‘Stinginess’ of Republican ‘Grinches’

On the Monday, December 23, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, host Al Sharpton led the show by accusing Republicans of “stinginess” and of being “grinches” because of GOP opposition to a further extension of unemployment benefits. With the words “GOP Grinches Steal Christmas” on screen, Sharpton opened the show: “Tonight’s lead, Republican’s grinches launching fist full of coal. This week, as families gather at dinner tables around the country, many are facing extreme economic anxiety that could have been prevented, is due to Republicans’ stinginess on key economic issues. More than one million Americans face losing their unemployment benefits in just five days.”

MSNBC’s Hayes Derides FNC ‘Obsession’ with ‘Knockout Game’ That Targets Whites

On Monday’s All In with Chris Hayes, host Hayes for a second time griped over Fox News giving attention to reports of primarily black teens playing a “knockout game” in which they target white victims for violence, suggesting that the game does not really exist. As he awarded his choice for the “over-covered” and “under-covered” news stories for the year, Hayes began: “Over-covered is the Fox News/Drudge obsession with the so-called ‘Knockout Game,’ which this is a flavor of what that, and this has been on Fox all the time.”

Medic BiASS: No Mentions of Conservatives/GOP in Networks’ Coverage of Latest ObamaCare ‘Fix’

No Mentions of Conservatives/GOP in Networks’ Coverage of Latest ObamaCare ‘Fix’

ABC, CBS, and NBC all devoted air time to the Obama administration’s latest “fix for the botched health care rollout” on their Friday morning newscasts, but failed to include any conservative or Republican reaction to this development. Good Morning America minimized their coverage, airing just two news briefs on “the White House offering relief now for people who lost their health insurance because it didn’t meet standards required by the…health care law.” Today and CBS This Morning both spotlighted the insurance industry’s worries over this change, but didn’t get around to the possible political fallout over the White House announcement. Guthrie only vaguely asserted how the “fix” might be “more ammunition for the critics of the law.”

MSNBC’s Hayes: GOPers ‘Screwing Over’ People, View ‘Poverty as Punishment’

On Thursday’s All In show, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes repeatedly used words like “screwing over” to describe Republican policies toward the poor, and claimed that Tea Partiers in Congress believe in “poverty as punishment” as he fretted over a delay in the extension of unemployment benefits and then hyped Georgia Republican Rep. Jack Kingston’s suggestion that school children do chores in exchange for subsidized lunches. After characterizing recent statements by congressional Republicans as being like immaturely declaring, “Yeah, and your mother,” the MSNBC host a bit later whined: “So Republicans leave 2013 impotent and neutered. But even though their bullying and hectoring is mostly false, it doesn’t mean they don’t still have the power to kick people who are down. They can’t make the White House do what they want it to do, but the one thing they can do, the one thing they are successful at doing, the thing that they deliver reliably is screwing over poor and working people.”

MSNBC’s Taylor Invents ‘Hypocrisy’ Charge Over GOP Views on Duck Dynasty Vs. ObamaCare

On Thursday’s PoliticsNation, MSNBC political analyst Goldie Taylor ludicrously saw “hypocrisy” in Republicans speaking out against A&E possibly firing Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson while opposing ObamaCare’s contraception mandate as she failed to note that ObamaCare, as opposed to the Duck Dynasty controversy, is an issue of forcing employers by law to obey the government in spite of religious objections. Without providing any quotes as evidence, she accused conservatives of making Phil Robertson’s employment with A&E into a First Amendment issue, and then failed to note that ObamaCare actually does involve the First Amendment, and went on to make a lame joke quoting Gomer Pyle from the television show Gomer Pyle, USMC.
