  • Stephanopoulos: Media Shouldn’t Give Air Time to Politicians Who Won’t 'Accept Reality’

    Friday, magazine and website The Hollywood Reporter spoke to news anchors from all of the major networks in a discussion about what the role of the journalist was in today’s day and age. ABC host and former Clinton administration official George Stephanopoulos was the most forceful of the group in arguing that it wasn’t the media’s role to share all sides of a story. In fact, he argued, it was the journalist’s job to report “the truth” and to silence viewpoints that didn’t “accept reality.” {..snip..}
  • ABC News: OK, fine, Trump Tower was wiretapped, and it was all about Russians, but . . .

    It's not quite what Trump's tweet seemed to suggest, unless . . . Here’s a pattern you’ve probably noticed about the way the media deals with President Trump. When his literal words might be off target but his meaning can be justified, his literal words are all that matters. But when his literal words turn out to be accurate . . . well, that’s not what he meant! Did the Obama Administration wiretap Trump Tower? Or were there some other form of FISA surveillance that Trump clumsily described as a wiretap in a very specific building? We’ve already dealt with...

    Imagine if the suspect arrested today in connection with making phone threats to Jewish community centers around the nation had been a big Donald Trump supporter. Do any of you have any doubt at all that the fact of his support for Trump would have been in the first paragraph of all the mainstream media reports of his arrest? In fact, it would probably have appeared in the very first sentence. Well, Juan Thompson was arrested today as a suspect in the JCC phone threats but not only did his political leanings not appear in the first paragraph of the ABC News...

    During ABC News special report coverage following President Trump’s press conference on Thursday, anchor George Stephanopoulos seemed to be in a state of shock over the commander-in-chief’s hostility to the liberal media: “What a remarkable window into the state of mind of the President of the United States right there....lashed out at the press, made it very clear he thinks the press is dishonest....never seen anything like that.” Special correspondent Matthew Dowd agreed: “No, that was the most amazing press conference by a president I have ever seen and I've been watching it since the mid-70s. And I don't mean...

    The journalists at ABC on Wednesday erupted in “open hostility” to Donald Trump, accusing the President of “shutting down part of the First Amendment” by not calling on network reporters at a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Jon Karl, Cecilia Vega and Matt Dowd repeatedly whined about the “conservative” questioners who were chosen, lamenting that the preferred narrative of the liberal media wasn’t highlighted. In the post-press conference coverage, Vega ranted, “I want to tell you about the open hostility right here in this room. You know, I'm sitting right here kind of in the middle of...

    What is it about ABC, MSNBC, CBS News and of course CNN that makes them think they can get away with fake news? This is the internet age, creating fake news by openly lying and editing interviews to make a fake point against Trump is not going to work any longer. The people have had it. Time to call upon Trump to call fora nationwide boycott of the fake news industry. They want to play, we can too. Time to hit back.

    In an interview with ABC News that aired earlier this week, President Donald Trump complained to anchor David Muir about the mainstream media’s lack of coverage for the March of Life. When Mr. Muir asked if Mr. Trump could hear the protesters from the progressive Women’s March on Washington from the White House, Mr. Trump responded, saying: “No, I couldn’t hear them. The crowds were large, but you will have a large crowd on Friday, too, which is mostly pro-life people. You’re going to have a lot of people coming on Friday. And I will say this, and I didn’t...

    Washington Times ^ | 1/25/17 | Douglas Ernst
    A mangled quote by ABC News about White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s job performance forced the network to apologize late Tuesday. Complaints by former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer regarding the way “Nightline” represented his opinions prompted him to defend President Trump’s attacks on the media. The network said it would fix a Monday segment that chopped comments about Mr. Spicer that could be misconstrued. “Nightline aired a segment Monday night about the first three days of the new administration including Sean Spicer’s statement to the press on Saturday,” the network said in statement, The Hill reported Wednesday....

    ABC has had to re-schedule its LGBT miniseries When We Rise to make room for President Donald Trump. File this under “Ironic.” Earlier this month, ABC announced it would schedule its groundbreaking miniseries across four consecutive nights, for maximum impact: February 27-March 2, from 9-11 PM each night. But yesterday, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced at a news conference at the Capitol that he had invited President Donald Trump to address a joint session of Congress on February 28 (First addresses by a newly elected POTUS to the joint session of Congress are not officially called State of the Union...

    After being caught deceptively editing comments from former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer during a report on Monday’s Nightline, on Wednesday, ABC News was again embroiled in a fake news controversy after the network used a badly photoshopped image to promote World News Tonight anchor David Muir’s upcoming interview with President Trump. The picture showed Trump looking out the window of the Oval Office in a pretty standard pose, however, outside that window there appeared to be a massive blizzard (Click on the image above to enlarge). The only problem? It hasn’t snowed in Washington D.C. in weeks and...

    Apparently, some members of the mainstream media cannot help themselves: their hatred for Donald Trump is so intense that they engage in misconduct almost guaranteed to be exposed, and thereby reinforce the Trump narrative that they are dishonest.  It is an exercise in self-destruction that suggests deep psychological issues. Alex Griswold of Mediaite has the story.  Ari Fleisher, whose interview was doctored to reverse his intentions, tweeted his protest: @Nightline proves Spicer right about MSM's dedication to negativity. Here is what I told them in a taped interview: 1/4Having been caught, ABC apologized: ABC News Apologizes After Editing Former...

    ABC News apologized Tuesday after the Monday night edition of Nightline edited a quote from former George W. Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer in a way that made it appear that he was more critical of current White House press secretary Sean Spicer than he actually was. “[Spicer’s] briefing made me uncomfortable. It was too truculent, too tough. It looks as if the ball was dropped on Saturday,” Nightline quoted Fleischer as saying. But Fleischer took to Twitter to complain that he had been taken out of context.

    Terry Moran of ABC News put on his crypto-fascist hat and declared President Donald Trump’s inauguration speech had “overtones” of the 1930s “anti-Semitic movement” because the President dared to put the words “America’ and “first” together. Moran began by conceding Trump’s message was “why he was sent here, by people who want to hear that message of America first.” “However, it carries with it overtones from the 1930s, when an anti-Semitic movement saying, ‘We don’t want to get involved in Europe’s war. It’s the Jews’ fault in Germany,’” he pontificated, before adding ominously, “Charles Lindbergh led them.” “It is a...

    Retired Marine Gen. James "Hoss" Cartwright has reportedly lost his security clearance as an investigation into his involvement in national security leaks continues, Foreign Policy reports. Cartwright, a retired four-star general who served for 40 years and last served on the Joint Chiefs, has been the subject of an ongoing investigation into an alleged leak of classified information of the "Stuxnet" virus that targeted and temporarily disabled Iran's nuclear facilities in 2010. The general's legal team has called that assertion "preposterous." Gordon Lubold of FP reports that multiple current and former administration sources said Cartwright lost his clearance earlier this...

    We all know by now that Megyn Kelly opted to sign a comprehensive deal with NBC. It is also clear that competitor ABC News had been one of the top suitors. She even turned down a handsome $100 million package from Fox News to go to the peacock network for far less money. But, could Kelly’s recent appearance on Good Morning America have stopped that network from competing harder for the Fox News host? Mediaite has learned that the minute-by-minute ratings for GMA took a major (and surprising) dive during her segment on November 15 to promote her new book,...

    The long-awaited 2016 election day is finally here, and it could be a historic one for a number of different reasons. The United States could elect its first female president Hillary Clinton; Republicans could take back the White House with Donald Trump after two terms of Democratic control; there could be record voter turnout and the leading campaign election night parties will both be in New York.
