Nets Ignore Iranian Boat Playing Dangerous ‘Game of Chicken’ With US Navy

On Monday, the radical Iranian Revolutionary Guard harassed a U.S. Navy vessel for the seventh time this year. “Back overseas, an Iranian navy vessel engaged in a potentially disastrous game of chicken with a U.S. destroyer earlier this week,” announced Fox News’ Bret Baier on Wednesday’s Special Report. “It is the latest provocation that many U.S. officials worry could turn into something deadly.” Despite the uptick in Iranian aggression towards the U.S., the Big Three Networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored it. 

CBS Trashes White House’s Tax Plan, Critique Divorced from Reality

The White House on Wednesday released the outline for the President’s proposed tax plan that would drastically cut taxes and simplify the filing process, among other things. CBS’s resident Trump critic and anchor, Scott Pelley kicked off the show smearing it. “Today the Trump administration rushed out a plan for historic tax cuts high on hyperbole, but with only a dollop of detail,” he declared at the top of CBS Evening News. His critique was loaded with snide attacks at the President and at one point divorced itself from reality, something Pelley once chastised Trump for. 

Nets Hype Ivanka Getting Heckled at Women’s Summit in Germany

Ivanka Trump was embracing her role as adviser to the president on Tuesday when she was representing the United States at a women’s summit in Berlin, Germany. While on stage, she stated that her father has “been a tremendous champion of supporting families.” And with that, the European audience “hissed” and “jeered.” The liberal Big Three networks were more than happy to pounce on the incident and replay it that evening. 

Nets Who Tied Trump to Anti-Semitism Ignore Visit to Holocaust Museum

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump paid his respects for Holocaust Remembrance Day with a visit to the National Holocaust Museum just a few blocks away from the White House. There he denounced anti-Semitic attacks saying: “It has been on display in the most sinister manner when terrorists attack Jewish communities or when aggressors threaten Israel with total and complete destruction. This is my pledge to you: We will confront anti-Semitism.” Yet all of the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) omitted his remarks from their evening reports. 

ABC, NBC Skip U.S. General Suggesting Russia Arming Resurgent Taliban

Secretary of Defense James Mattis made a visit to Afghanistan Monday, where he and General John Nicholson stated that a top U.S. adversary was backing the Taliban. “9,000 U.S. troops are on the ground trying to help the Afghan army hold back a resurgent Taliban,” announced Anchor Scott Pelley during CBS Evening News, “But the job is getting tougher by the day thanks in part to Moscow.” The revelation was chilling considering U.S. troop could be coming up against those weapons, and it went unreported on ABC and NBC that evening. 

CBS, NBC Celebrate Obama’s First Public Appearance Since Inauguration

Former President Barack Obama made his first public appearance at the University of Chicago on Monday, where the liberal media championed his return. “Meantime tonight, we're hearing from former President Obama speaking out in his first public event since leaving office, jumping back into the spotlight and a lot of attention focused on what he would say about his successor, President Trump,” hyped Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News

NBC Ignores American Arrested in North Korea, But Slams Palin Photo

Troubling news broke out of North Korea early Sunday morning after an American citizen was arrest by North Korean officials on Saturday. “It has been confirmed that another American has been arrested in North Korea's capital, Pyongyang, which about 120 miles north from here from Seoul,” reported ABC’s Bob Woodruff during Good Morning America. It’s shocking news that hits just as tensions between the U.S. and communist regime are near a boiling point. Despite those facts, NBC’s Willie Geist failed to mention the development during his show, Sunday Today

CBS Defends NEA, ‘Art Needs Subsidy to Be Alive,’ Not the Marketplace

During CBS’s Sunday Morning, the network dedicated their “cover story,” which lasted over nine minutes, to railing against the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts. “With the proposed cuts in federal funding for the arts would hurt their program but not shut it down, but the same cannot be said for groups in other parts of the country,” whined host Jane Pauley while using the New York Youth Symphony as a political prop. 

Fake News: Rachel Maddow Invents Missing Trump Inauguration Funds

A little over a month since her overhyped non-scandal involving President Trump’s tax returns, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow took to her show Thursday night to invent a controversy involving "missing" Trump inauguration funds. “We raised a question about $107 million that appears to be sloshing around right now somewhere inside the Trump administration, with nobody accounting for it,” she claimed near the top of the show. Her claim that money was “sloshing around” somewhere was based solely on her criticism of the inauguration being nowhere near as great as President Obama’s.

Nets Omit Dem Official Blaming Obama for Party Failures in Elections

Following their humiliating defeat in the 2016 election, the Democratic Party found themselves in a terrible place where they were down over 1000 seats through all levels of government since 2008. And according to one high-ranking Party official, one person held the blame. “The number two official for the Democrats says former President Obama is to blame for the Party's recent electoral failures,” Fox News’ Bret Baier reported on Special Report on Thursday, while the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored the figure pointing.  

CBS Blacks Out GM Factory Being Seized by Socialist Venezuela

As Venezuelan ruler Nicolas Maduro struggled against violent protests against him, the U.S. based company General Motors had its means of production seized by the socialist regime Thursday. “General Motors tonight saying it's been forced to suspend its operation in Venezuela after the government there confiscated its factory,” announced ABC Anchor David Muir during World News Tonight, “GM forced to lay off 2700 workers, but vowing to fight this tonight.” Sadly, CBS was the only network not to report the theft. 

ABC, CBS Harping on Ossoff’s Non-Win, ‘First Scare at Ballot Box’ for GOP

After spending the morning playing up the non-win of Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff, ABC and CBS continued to play their game of spin-the-story Wednesday evening. “The President put all of his support behind Republicans in yesterday's congressional special election in Georgia, but it turned out that Democrat Jon Ossoff was the top vote-getter,” Anchor Scott Pelley announced on CBS Evening News, “Still, he fell just 2 points short of the 50% needed to avoid a run-off.”

NBC Shocked that Supreme Court Would Dare Side With a Church Over the State

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United States heard the oral argument for the controversial Trinity Lutheran Church v. Comer. The case tackles the idea of a separation between church and state, “The question: Can states refuse to give money to churches even when it's for something that doesn't involve worship,” noted Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News. And judging by questions asked by the justices, it appeared as though the majority might side with the church. And judging by NBC’s coverage, the network was appalled by the idea. 

MSNBC’s Malcolm Nance Nominates Trump Tower Istanbul for ‘ISIS Suicide Bombing’

In an absolutely shocking tweet late Tuesday afternoon, MSNBC’s Counter Terrorism Analyst Malcolm Nance stepped up and suggested that ISIS bomb a Trump property. “This is my nominee for first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property,” he tweeted in response to another one asserting that President Trump congratulated Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s election win for corrupt reasons tied to his tower. 

ABC, NBC Fawn Over Ossoff: Democrats’ ‘Best Chance’ Against Trump

With the polls getting ready to close in Georgia’s 6th congressional district, ABC and NBC flaunted their admiration for the young Democrat Jon Ossoff Tuesday evening. “Tonight, the eyes of the political world are on a congressional district in Georgia where an upstart Democrat is trying to win a special election in what has been a Republican-held district for years,” announced Anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News, “Democrats hoping to ride anti-Trump sentiment to victory.”

MSNBC’s Tur Insists Trump’s Foreign Policy Flips Stem from His ‘Ignorance’

MSNBC’s Katy Tur is notably not a fan of President Trump and during Monday’s MTP Daily, where she was filling-in for Chuck Todd, she took numerous swipes at the commander-in-chief. “There are so many questions about what exactly Donald Trump’s foreign policy is. What does the Trump doctrine look like? … There's a lot of confusion about it,” she told Richard Haass of the Council on Foreign Relations, “And the flip-flops that we're seeing, are they rooted in pragmatism or are they rooted in ignorance?”

CBS Hypes Young Democrat in Georgia Primary, ‘Hopes’ Are ‘Invested’ in Him

With the polls in Georgia’s special election closing in roughly 24-hours, CBS Evening News spent a segment of Monday night’s program seemingly hyping up the young Democrat running, John Ossoff. “30-year old John Ossoff has gone from unknown documentarian to Democratic-cause-celeb in the space of two months,” praised Correspondent Nancy Cordes. This, while poking fun at Republicans who they claim were struggling to hold the seat. 

Nets Ignore the Capture of Murderer Who Kill Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry

It was a long time coming but according to the Department of Homeland Security, the gunman who is said to have murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry had finally been captured. “The suspected shooter in the 2010 murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry has been arrested…” announced CNN’s Jake Tapper on The Lead Thursday, “38-year-old Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes was taken into custody in Mexico Wednesday, it was part of a joint operation between the two countries.” But despite this positive news, all of the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) ignored it. 

CBS Celebrates Federal Court Striking Down Texas’ Voter ID Law

On Monday, a federal judge struck down the state of Texas’ voter ID law with claims that the law was specifically designed to target minorities. Seemingly just hearing about it on Thursday, CBS Evening News touted the development. “A federal judge has again struck down Texas' voter ID law, ruling that it is actually meant to keep minorities from voting. The state is expected to appeal,” announced Anchor Scott Pelley at the start of the segment. 

CBS Highlights Study Claiming Supreme Court Justices Are Sexist

To cap off Wednesday’s CBS Evening News, the network spotlighted a study by a pair of Northwestern University law professors who claim the United States Supreme Court is a sexist workplace based exclusively on who interrupts who. “And at the Supreme Court, women broke the glass ceiling. Now, if the men don’t mind, they’d like to have the floor,” argued Anchor Scott Pelley during the opening tease. When the segment finally rolled around at the end of the show, Pelley quipped that “The first amendment guarantees the right to free speech, but is there a constitutional right to finish a sentence?” 

CBS, NBC Skip Report Showing ‘Dangerous Conditions’ at D.C. VA Hospital

On Wednesday afternoon, news broke out of Washington D.C. that, “Conditions are so dangerous at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Washington, D.C., that the agency's chief watchdog issued a rare preliminary report Wednesday to alert patients and other members of the public.” That, according to USA Today. Despite the horrific conditions found in government ran facilities, CBS and NBC decided to skip the news during their evening broadcasts. ABC, on the other hand, did report the shocking findings.

Tur Can Poke Fun at Spicer’s History Gaffe, But She Has Her Own List of Them

For White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Tuesday was filled with embarrassment after he made a historical gaffe when trying to compare Bashar al-Assad to Adolf Hitler. During MSNBC’s MTP Daily, fill-in host Katy Tur poked a little fun at the Press Secretary. “Sean Spicer stepped in it a little while ago at the press briefing room when he compared or tried to make a comparison to Hitler saying: ‘not even Hitler gassed his own people with this type of gas,” she told reporter Hallie Jackson. Tur might want to be careful throwing those stones since she herself has had an issue with recalling more recent history.

CBS Goes Low, Hurls Personal Insults at Spicer Over Hitler Blunder

Tuesday was an, unfortunately, embarrassing day for White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, after he made a self-admitted “blunder” while trying to compare Syria’s Bashar al-Assad to Adolf Hitler. Spicer claimed that not even Hitler used chemical weapons on his own people, even though he did during the Holocaust. In response, all three of the liberal Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) lead their evening programming with the gaffe. But CBS got bizarrely personal by mocking him directly and even questioning his intelligence. 

NBC Champions New York’s ‘New Groundbreaking’ ‘Free’ College Tuition

The ultra-socialist state of New York became the first state in the union to saddle its taxpayers with “free” tuition to four-year public colleges and universities on Monday, and the liberal media couldn’t be happier. “The Empire State has become the first state to offer free four-year tuition to the state's public universities for low and middle-income families,” praised Anchor Lest Holt during NBC Nightly News, “It opens doors for students who otherwise couldn't afford it, but will other states follow New York's lead?”

Nets Downplay Gorsuch Swearing In, Ignore Tom Daschle Scolding Senate Filibuster

On Monday, Judge Neil Gorsuch became the 113th associate justice to sit on the Supreme Court after he was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts. The event was a culmination of many hours of testimony, a damaging filibuster by Senate Democrats, which forced Senate Republicans to use the so-called “nuclear option” to proceed with Gorsuch’s confirmation. But despite all of those historic obstacles, the Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) treated it as though it was nothing special, and ignored Democratic icon Tom Daschle who scolded Democrats for filibustering. 

Intercept Co-Founder Goes Off the Rails, Compares Dick Cheney to ‘Butcher’ Assad

A simple news segment about the media coverage of Syria spun wildly out of control during Sunday’s Reliable Sources on CNN. It started with Foreign Correspondent Lara Setrakian noting how little coverage the Syrian civil war received in the early years. But it ending with Jeremy Scahill, co-founder of The Intercept, going off the rails and declaring that “We need to understand the historical context of how a butcher like Assad actually has more in common with someone like Dick Cheney than he does with the average Syrian…”

‘Meet the Press’ Debates If Hillary Lost Because of the Country’s ‘Misogyny’

In a ridiculous discussion that sounded as though it belonged in a forum of a left-wing website, the panel on Sunday’s Meet the Press bemoaned how the country’s attitude towards women cost Hillary Clinton the White House. Moderator Chuck Todd read from the recent NYT column of Nicholas Kristof, who described Clinton’s idea of Trump voters as “I don’t agree with him, I’m not sure I really approve of him, but he looks like somebody who’s been president before.” Paraphrasing Clinton, Todd suggested that “she believed misogyny played a much larger role in this than it’s been analyzed by many of us.”

Stephanopoulos Goes Soft on Calls for Schiff’s Investigation Recusal

The liberal media was overjoyed Thursday, by the fact that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes was recusing himself from his committee’s Russian influence investigation after he discussed evidence with the press. The media weren’t so keen on similar calls for the ranking Democrat on the Committee, Adam Schiff to do the same after he opened up to the press about what evidence he had seen. During ABC’s This Week, moderator George Stephanopoulos teed-up Schiff to combat those demands. 

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Questions If US ‘Acted as ISIS’s Air Force’

In the wake of the U.S. missile strikes against Syrian military targets late Thursday, speculation swirled about what the next step was and what the country’s Syria policy would be going forward. One such speculator was CNN’s resident plagiarist Fareed Zakaria who had a plethora of questions for President Trump. He warned that the strikes could be aiding ISIS. “Are we now saying we’re against Assad? Do we want to strengthen ISIS? Do we want the Assad regime to fall,” he wondered. 

ABC, NBC Rail Against ‘Partisan’ Republicans for Using Nuclear Option

In an act similar to that of a whining child, Senate Democrats attempted to block the President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch Thursday. Republicans, in turn, followed through on their promise to execute the so-called “nuclear option” to bring debate to a close and move the nomination forward. In response, ABC and NBC were up in arms that evening. “The Republican leader today emerged from the partisan battlefield with a thumbs up. The top Democrat, his head hung low in defeat,” bemoaned ABC’s Mary Bruce on World News Tonight

MSNBC Panelists Play Dumb on Why People Don’t Trust Susan Rice

As though it was a running theme for MSNBC on Wednesday night, multiple expert panelists acted as though they couldn’t understand why the public has trust issues with former UN Ambassador Susan Rice. “And one thing [President Donald Trump] said in the interview that is true, Susan Rice is not a particularly polished public performer,” declared New York Times journalist Glenn Thrush on Chris Matthews’ Hardball

CBS Insinuates Trump Is Responsible for Syrian ‘Crime Against Humanity’

The country’s emotions ran high as horrific images flooded in from Syria on Tuesday, where dictator Bashar al-Assad killed dozens and wounded hundreds more in a chemical weapon attack on his own people. “Even by the horrors of the Syrian civil war, what happened today will stand out as a crime against humanity,” was the first sentence uttered by Anchor Scott Pelley as CBS Evening News came on the air. But he then seemed to insinuate that the blame rested at President Trump’s feet.

CNN’s Tapper Claims GOP Responsible for Senate’s Descent ‘Into the Muck’

With the Senate’s Supreme Court confirmation vote of Judge Neil Gorsuch fast approaching, many are worried about the terrible precedent the Democratic Party’s filibuster will set. While others worry about nuking the filibuster rules. The politicization of Supreme Court confirmations has been going on for decades, but according to CNN’s Jake Tapper it’s all the GOP’s fault. “Going back in time to figuring out where this started to descend into the muck, is it fair to say that this was 16-years or so when Republicans really started to obstruct the appointments of justices,” he claimed on Monday’s The Lead.

ABC, NBC Cover-Up Revelation Susan Rice Ordered Trump Aides Unmasked, CBS Defends

A massive revelation in the alleged surveillance of President Trump’s aides broke Monday morning when Bloomberg reported that, “Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign.” With their identities unmasked, it allowed for someone to freely and illegally leak their names to the press. It’s controversial news but ABC and NBC both chose to ignore it that night, while CBS defended Rice. 

NBC’s Chuck Todd Badgers McConnell About Giving Garland a Vote

With the Senate’s Supreme Court confirmation vote for Judge Neil Gorsuch just days away and the possibly of Republicans nuking the filibuster looming, NBC’s Chuck Todd seemed as though he was in a near panic on Sunday’s Meet The Press. Besides his declarations of the GOP continuing the Senate’s decent down the “slippery slope” of removing the filibuster, Todd pestered Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the Senate to hold a vote for former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland. 

Wild Raddatz Disrespects, Harasses Ambassador Haley About Russia

ABC’s This Week went off the rails Sunday morning as fill-in host Martha Raddatz assaulted U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley with ridiculous questions about Russia, and at one point insinuated that she doesn’t speak for the U.S. “And you mentioned this. President Trump has said he respects Putin. But you say you don't trust him. You've said the U.S. needs to take hacking seriously. President Trump has been dismissive of it,” Raddatz prefaced before chided, “Which one of you should our allies and adversaries believe?”

Chuck Todd Praises Bill Clinton’s Ability to Deal with ‘Scandal Clouds’

With each passing day, the Russia story seems to balloon and grow a whole new facet for the media to talk about. During NBC’s Sunday Today, fill-in host Hallie Jackson noted how it was wearing down the President. “President Trump is calling this Russia story “fake news,” you've got Republicans like Lindsey Graham now saying they're not going to ease up on this investigation. New revelations about Mike Flynn,” she stated before asking Chuck Todd, “Let me put it this way, its opening day in baseball, so what inning are we in with this Russia story, Chuck? What do you think?”
