ABC Skips Own Poll on ‘Record Low Support’ for ObamaCare

 

According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, support for ObamaCare is at a “record low” level. Yet, viewers wouldn’t know that from watching the network. Journalists on Sunday’s World News and Monday’s Good Morning America failed to cover the poll from their own network. According to the Washington Post, “The survey finds opinion on the health-care law among the worst in Post-ABC polling; 54 percent oppose, up six percentage points from a year ago.”

Networks Fail to Notice Obama Attacking Supreme Court Ahead of ObamaCare Ruling

 

The “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC all refused to mention on Monday night comments made by President Barack Obama earlier in the day in which he attacked the Supreme Court for taking a case regarding ObamaCare subsidies and warned them not to rule that they’re unconstitutional. They remained on the sidelines as FNC’s Special Report with Bret Baier worked to once again fill the void with not only a full segment, but also a discussion of it with the show’s “All-Star Panel.”

Less than a month after being forced to apologize for a conflict of interest, George Stephanopoulos’s Good Morning America on Monday devoted almost seven minutes of air-time to aggressively promoting the new book from the journalist’s wife. Co-host Robin Roberts interviewed Ali Wentworth for six minutes and 39 seconds. In contrast, the latest details on the massive hack from the Chinese government against the U.S. warranted a scant 21 seconds.

NBC Spins for Obama at G-7 Summit after ‘No Complete Strategy’ Comments on ISIS

 

Following President Obama’s comments at the G-7 summit on Monday about the United States still having “no complete strategy” for fighting ISIS, NBC Nightly News went to work in spinning for the President by touting his reasoning and neglecting to mention that he uttered similar remarks back on August 28, 2014.
