    ABC journalist Terry Moran suffered a full meltdown as he reacted to Donald Trump’s United Nations speech on Tuesday. The network's chief foreign correspondent condemned the President’s warning to North Korea as “bordering on the threat of a war crime.” Bizarrely, he claimed that the speech, which warned Iran and condemned socialism in Venezuela, was one Vladimir Putin would give and that dictators everywhere would love. Trump told the United Nations that if America is “forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” In response, Moran freaked out: “The...

    Friday on The View, hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar revealed they were still in denial over the 2016 election results. Discussing the leaked excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir, the two die-hard liberals at the table clashed with moderate hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila, over the reasons why Clinton lost the election. Joy Behar even went so far as to claim that Clinton really did “win” the election, while Whoopi went into conspiracy theory land, saying we would “never know” why Clinton really lost. The conversation started by discussing Bernie Sanders recent television appearance, where he told Clinton...

    A re-imagining of Steven J. Cannell’s 1981 cult classic The Greatest American Hero is flying back to development with a new creative team, a big new commitment and a big twist. ABC has given a put pilot commitment to the half-hour single-camera project. In it, the unlikely (super)hero at the center — Ralph Kinley (played by William Katt) in the original series — is Meera, an Indian-American woman. The Greatest American Hero comes from Fresh Off the Boat writer-producer Rachna Fruchbom and Nahnatchka Khan’s Fierce Baby. 20th Century Fox TV, where Fierce Baby is based and Fruchbom recently signed an...
  • Trump 'speaks in ways that I wouldn't' on North Korea, but US must show 'strength': Ted Cruz

    exas Sen. Ted Cruz said President Donald Trump "speaks in ways that I wouldn't" on North Korea but that it helps to "have a president who is strong." The Republican senator told ABC News "This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz that if North Korea's claim that it successfully tested a hydrogen bomb Sunday is true, it is "a serious escalation in their ability to commit mass acts of murder" that will spur calls for "further serious steps to prevent North Korea from using those weapons." "North Korea right now, it’s the most dangerous place on the face of the planet," Cruz...
  • NBC Blackout: Ignores Trump’s $1 Million Pledge to Harvey Relief

    With the recovery process just beginning in some parts of Texas on Thursday, following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, President Donald Trump pledged $1 million of his own money to aid relief efforts. Only two of the Big Three Networks (ABC and CBS) found it fitting to report Trump’s act of charity. NBC Nightly News was the only network news show to ignore it, instead, they simply mentioned that Trump planned to visit Houston on Saturday. In addition to Trump’s pledge, Vice President Mike Pence was in Rockport, Texas to survey the damage, console the people, and personally help with...

    Tom Llamas is not the hero Houston needs right now, according to how some of his dispatches were received on Tuesday morning. The ABC News reporter, using the #BREAKING hashtag, told his followers that he saw “looting” taking place at a supermarket in the northeast part of the city, an area grappling with catastrophic floods and supply shortages. And that there was a dead body nearby. In that order. He was immediately met with a heavy dose of internet WTF:

    Newsbusters.org ^ | August 23, 2017 | Kristine Marsh
    After accusing Trump-supporters of wanting to hurt reporters, ABC went on to claim that Trump hated the media because he hates the truth, on Wednesday’s Good Morning America. Not only that, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd stated, but Trump hates that that the Constitution protects freedom of the press. The negative allegations began after anchor George Stephanopoulos gushed that the media was “running out of times to say, ‘we’ve never seen anything like this before from someone in the White House.’” Dowd went on to rant that Trump was “stoking the fires” of “division” with this rhetoric against the media:...

    TV Newser ^ | 8/10/2017 | Chris Ariens
    In a footnote on page 1 and again on page 8 of its third quarter earnings release The Walt Disney Company makes note of a $177 million charge affecting its earnings. That charge comes from ABC News settling a defamation lawsuit over its reporting of so-called pink slime. Beef Products Inc. (BPI) sued ABC News and correspondent Jim Avila for $1.9 billion dollars over what it claimed were “false and misleading and defamatory” statements about its product known as Lean Finely Textured Beef. After 5 years of pre-trial, the case went before a South Dakota judge in early June. It...

    Newsbusters.org ^ | August 8, 2017 | Scott Whitlock
    All three networks on Tuesday worried about Donald Trump’s “lack of curiosity” in the wake of a “startling” new climate change report. After discussing a draft report leaked to the New York Times, Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos sneered, “No word yet on whether they will suppress, dismiss, or endorse the report.” On CBS This Morning, Major Garrett offered a lecture: “The lack of comment from officials here and from those at some of the relevant federal agencies about this report's startling conclusions suggest not just skepticism but, at least initially, a lack of curiosity.” CBS Freaks Over Climate Study,...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 08/08/2017 | Jim Treacher
    When I heard that ABC had cancelled Tim Allen’s show Last Man Standing, my first thought was: “Wait, the guy from Home Improvement? He had another show?” I don’t really pay a lot of attention to network TV these days.* But millions of people watched it every week, and they were really disappointed. Allen thinks his show got the axe because he’s a conservative and a Trump supporter. (It’s possible to be both, I’m told.) ABC says it isn’t so. AFP: .. No room on the schedule? For a show that pulled in 8 million viewers on a Friday night?...

    Mainstream media bias isn't just against President Trump, but also Israel. On Friday, CNN, NBC, ABC, and CBS published headlines equating three terrorists behind clashes in the West Bank during the day with three Israelis who were stabbed to death the following night in the area: CNN.com.com: "3 Israelis killed in stabbing; 3 Palestinians killed in clashes."

    On Sunday, Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for President Trump, appeared on ABC’s This Week to discuss the latest developments in the Russia story, particularly those involving the President’s son and son-in-law. Towards the end of the interview, Jon Karl pressed Sekulow about the concerns of presidential pardons, citing the worries of Senate Democrat Mark Warner. But no matter how many time Sekulow explained that he didn’t know the President’s position on the question, Karl kept insisting he was saying Trump was seriously thinking about it. “One last question. Senator Warner says he is concern that the President will issue pardons...

    Great news, Republicans! Hillary Clinton, the Most Corrupt Woman in America, still refuses to go quietly into that good night. Over the weekend, she was letting it be known to any idiot who still listens to her – which includes the majority of the voter base for the Democrat Party – that she plans to take a “major role” in killing…errrr, ummm…”helping” Democrat congressional candidates get slaughtered by….errrrr, ummmm….”defeat” Republicans and turn enough GOP districts to regain control of the House of Representatives.

    ABC and a South Dakota meat producer announced a settlement Wednesday in a $1.9 billion lawsuit against the American network over its reports on a lean, finely textured beef product that critics dubbed "pink slime." The terms of the settlement are confidential. ... BPI claimed in the 2012 complaint that sales declined from about 5 million pounds (2.3 million kilograms) per week to less than 2 million pounds (907,000 kilograms) per week. The product can be added to ground beef to reduce the overall fat content. It's made from trimmings left after a cow is butchered. The meat is separated...

    After Senate Republicans unveiled their ObamaCare replacement on Thursday, ABC smeared the bill during World News Tonight with claims that people were going to pay more for less and that Medicaid was being cut. On Sunday, Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos took to his show, This Week to continue their smear campaign. “The President right there said no cuts in Medicaid … Why is the President going back on his promise,” he rudely yelled at Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway. According to Stephanopoulos, “A lot of senators have questions about the Senate bill. Particularly those cuts in Medicaid. More than $800 billion.”...

    Civil rights groups are expressing concern that a wave of anti-Muslim sentiment is fueling the growth of right wing extremism across the United States, citing dozens of anti-Sharia demonstrations across the U.S. this weekend and an ongoing uptick in online recruitment. Police in Seattle and St. Paul, Minnesota, made arrests after fighting broke out during a series of marches across the U.S. on Saturday against Sharia, a strict form of Islamic law. The marches, launched by ACT for America, a self-described non-profit national security organization, is run by vocal supporters of President Donald Trump.
