On April 13, ABC’s World News Tonight correspondent Tom Llamas devoted most of that night’s report to chilling death threats against the Colorado state Republican party chairman, angered at how Donald Trump failed to win any delegates at the weekend party convention. That one report, plus two minor mentions on ABC and CBS, is all of broadcast news attention given to these threats. But the broadcast networks have aired a collective 45 minutes, 30 seconds of coverage since Sunday of Trump’s post-Colorado complaints that the GOP nominating system is “crooked” and “rigged.” That’s 24 TIMES more airtime spent on Trump’s grievance about the process, vs. death threats against anti-Trump Republicans.
The MRC has spent many years documenting the liberal media’s bias towards climate alarmism, from warnings of an “inevitable” ice age, to misreporting 2014 as the “hottest year” on record.
As an expert on the media’s record of promoting fear of climate change, MRC President and Founder L. Brent Bozell moderated an invitation-only panel discussion on the subject featuring former Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, climatologist Dr. David Legates and Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, host of a new documentary from CFACT: Climate Hustle.
On Thursday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on ABC, the late-night host played into the typical liberal line, that conservatives and Fox News viewers are just a bunch of angry white people.
After making some jokes about former contestants of The Apprentice denouncing Trump, Kimmel moved to the topic of Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly and her meeting with Donald Trump earlier this week. Kimmel joked that the meeting reminded him of a “forced hostage” situation, before slamming both as only caring about “getting white people very angry.”
Political correctness insanity has been viciously mocked on South Park, but now it may also start taking a licking in the comics pages of your local newspaper.
On ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday, co-host George Stephanopoulos told Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus that the GOP was “breaking apart” and quoted Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to bolster his claim.
In a break from the more traditional post-debate analysis routine, the Fox News Channel chose to award the cast of The Five its sole post-Democratic debate hour on Thursday and, of course, it featured humorous quips from co-host Greg Gutfeld. The quirky Gutfeld opined that, among many spit takes throughout the hour, the debate was more along the lines of a “wild kingdom” instead of “a country bear jamboree” in which “Hillary didn’t just take off her gloves” but “wanted to take off [Bernie Sanders’s] head.”
