ABC, CBS, NBC Spent Less Than 5 Minutes on Robert Hur's Investigation Since January
November 21st, 2023 4:21 PM
In January 2023, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Robert Hur, a former Justice Department official, to conduct an inquiry into President Biden’s alleged mishandling of classified documents. Despite the high-profile nature of the case, broadcast networks ABC, CBS, and NBC have been thoroughly disinterested in the investigation, spending less than five minutes on the story since January. MRC analysts looked at all coverage of Hur’s investigation spanning from February 1 through…

Eight NEW Biden Family Scandals ABC, CBS, NBC Are Hiding
November 14th, 2023 9:02 AM
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer’s Nov. 8 subpoena of Hunter and James Biden and Special Counsel David Weiss’s Nov. 7 congressional testimony actually forced the networks to — very briefly — break out of their rut of refusing to report on Biden family scandals.  On November 8, all three network (ABC, CBS, NBC) evening news programs relayed the bombshell development but only spent 100 seconds total on it, and dutifully repeated the debunked White House line of there’s “no…

ABC/CBS/NBC Spend 100 Seconds On Comer’s Subpoenas, Still Claim ‘Zero Evidence’ On Joe
November 9th, 2023 4:30 PM
ABC, CBS, and NBC actually covered, on their Wednesday evening news programs, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer’s subpoenas of Hunter and James Biden.  However, they spent only 100 seconds total on it and the bombshell development was completely whisked away by Thursday morning, with zero mentions on this morning’s editions of ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS Mornings and NBC’s Today show.  Of course, the evening show anchors and correspondents dutifully advanced the thoroughly…

ABC/CBS/NBC Spend Only 59 Seconds on Weiss Testimony, Devote 15 Minutes to Pandas
November 8th, 2023 2:26 PM
On Tuesday, the lead prosecutor in the Hunter Biden investigation Special Counsel David Weiss delivered a closed-door testimony to Congress but you wouldn’t know it if you only got your news from ABC and CBS…or if you just blinked while watching NBC.   That’s right. The only network (ABC,CBS,NBC) mention of the Weiss testimony came in a 59-second brief aired on the November 7 edition of NBC Nightly News.  None of the network morning shows (ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS Mornings, NBC’s…

OF COURSE: CNN, MSNBC Won’t Touch the Nashville Shooter’s Tranifesto
November 7th, 2023 11:21 AM
CNN and MSNBC, having assessed that the transgender Nashville shooter’s manifesto contains too much anti-white racism to spin away, are refusing to give even a second of airtime to the leaked excerpts. On Tuesday, Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake confirmed the authenticity of three pages of the Covenant School shooter’s manifesto, which were published by conservative media personality Steven Crowder the day prior. In the leaked excerpts of her manifesto, disturbed transgender woman…

TV Ignores Trump’s GOP Rivals, Blasts Ex-Prez With 93% Bad Press
November 7th, 2023 8:30 AM
With the the third Republican presidential debate set for Wednesday, the Big Three broadcast networks have abandoned their coverage of former President Donald Trump’s Republican presidential challengers. Instead, their evening newscasts have assumed the challenger role themselves, pounding the frontrunner with overwhelmingly (93%) negative coverage. Presidential election campaigns are a time for a party to showcase its ideas, but the networks are also suppressing Republicans’ policy agenda in…

Leftist Journos Push Hamas Propaganda as Fact, Compare GOP Speaker to David Duke
November 4th, 2023 8:00 AM
On October 7 the world witnessed a horrific attack on Israel by Hamas terrorists. Yet shockingly and disgustingly there were some in the journalism community who actually sympathized with Hamas, as NewsBusters detailed here.  Well those leftists are still at it, as they passed along Hamas propaganda as factual, called any opposition to a ceasefire racist and categorized Israel’s evacuation warnings a “war crime.”   The GOP House Speaker race was a source of ridicule this month as well.…

NBC’S HOSTILE DEBATE HOSTS: The Worst of Holt and Welker
November 2nd, 2023 10:25 AM
NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt and Meet the Press host Kristen Welker are set to moderate (along with talk show host Hugh Hewitt) the third Republican primary debate on November 8 and, as NewsBusters warned before the NBC moderators were chosen, GOP voters should expect hostile questions that push a left-wing agenda and are hostile to conservatives and their policy positions.  MRC founder and President L.Brent Bozell challenged Holt and Welker in this letter. In September, Welker took…

Guess Who Is the King of Nazi Analogies on Television?
October 31st, 2023 3:45 PM
On October 7, the Jewish people suffered their greatest single-day loss of life since the Holocaust in a horrific massacre that should cause people to think twice before comparing someone or something to Hitler, the Nazis, or their crimes. Unfortunately, the news media only seem to apply that standard to one side. Based on Godwin's Law -- which states the longer an internet conversation goes on, the likelihood that someone or something will be compared to Adolf Hitler or the Nazi Party…

FLASHBACK: While TV Ignores Biden Inquiry, They Feasted on Trump’s
October 28th, 2023 8:42 AM
In the six weeks since then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy authorized the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden for potential influence peddling, the broadcast evening newscasts have shown no interest in adequately covering the investigation. It’s a massive double-standard compared to their ravenous interest into Democrats’ 2019 impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. From the day the inquiry into Biden was authorized (September 12) through October 23, ABC’s World News Tonight…

STUDY: ABC, CBS, and NBC Are Shielding Pro-Hamas Democrats from the Public
October 24th, 2023 11:46 AM
Since the October 7 Hamas massacre of Israeli civilians, House Democratic members of the “Squad” have drawn harsh criticism from even members of their own party for their rabidly anti-Israel posturing. But rather than shining a spotlight on the controversy, the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) instead dutifully sheltered them from public scrutiny; in fact, since the attack, they have not received even a second of airtime on the evening newscasts. MRC analysts combed through all of ABC,…

Whoopi: Pope Francis Is a ‘Progressive’ Because ‘He’s a Human Being’
October 16th, 2023 1:31 PM
Moderator Whoopi Goldberg was back on ABC’s The View on Monday after her visit with Pope Francis last week. She bragged about taking important lessons away from their conversations and that he’s “a pope for all people.” But according to her, not all people were human and it all came down to politics and only progressives like her and Francis were human beings. That’s not the Holy Spirit you’re channeling, Whoopi! She said Francis reminded her a lot of Pope John XXIII. “And it's been a very…

FLASHBACK: How TV News Spun for Hamas During the Last Gaza War
October 14th, 2023 8:49 AM
Seven days ago, Hamas started a new Middle East war with a massacre of more than 1,200 Israeli civilians. Next up: a likely ground invasion of the Gaza Strip, a patch of the Mediterranean coast controlled by the terrorist organization since 2005. The last time Israel sent tanks into Gaza, in 2014, we saw many in the U.S. media work to undermine the effort by blaming the Israelis for heavy casualties among Palestinian civilians who were, in fact, put in danger by the cruel decisions of cynical…

AWFUL! Nine Times Media Sympathized with Hamas Terrorists
October 13th, 2023 11:30 AM
Beginning on the very first day of the horrific terrorist attacks on Israel there were actual attempts to sympathize with Hamas in the American media.  From MSNBC’s Ali Velshi demanding that the barbaric acts need to be looked at with “nuance” to a CNN guest actually blaming Israel for their years of “Apartheid” rule to a CBS correspondent praising Hamas’s leaders: “What they lack in fire power, they make up for in ideology and sheer determination,” the following are the nine worst moments of…

SHADY! Biden Names Hunter Crony to Whistleblower Agency, ABC/CBS/NBC Censor
October 6th, 2023 10:48 AM
In a move that would have stopped the networks cold if former President Donald Trump had done it, President Joe Biden named an old Hunter Biden colleague to head the agency that protects whistleblowers.  This is the agency that’s supposed to protect whistleblowers like IRS supervisory agent Gary Shapley and agent Joseph Ziegler who have alleged political interference in the investigation of Hunter Biden.  So far ABC, CBS, NBC have yet to devote a single second to the shocking news on their…
