Report: ABC, CBS, NBC Completely Ignore NYT Anti-Semitic Cartoon Controversy

ABC, CBS and NBC broadcast morning and evening news shows have completely ignored the controversy surrounding the New York Times’ anti-Semitic cartoon, according to a Newsbusters report published Monday afternoon.

Newsbusters writes:

Since Saturday morning when The New York Times issued its first statement concerning a blatantly anti-Semitic propaganda masquerading as a political cartoon in Thursday’s international edition, the flagship broadcast network morning and evening newscasts of ABC, CBS, and NBC have ignored the despicable image depicting President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

This all despite the fact that since Saturday night, each outlet led with the deadly shooting at Chabad of Poway synagogue in San Diego–a disturbing act allegedly carried out by an anti-Semitic 19-year-old.

Fake news CNN covered the New York Times story, devoting over 12 minutes to the shameful cartoon through 12:00 p.m. ET on Monday afternoon. MSNBC dedicated a whopping 61 seconds on the story.

CNN Anchor: Is “Lock her Up” Chant Hate Speech?

CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour is wondering if the ever-popular “lock her up” chant about Hillary Clinton should be considered “hate speech.”

In a wide-ranging interview with disgraced former FBI Director James Comey which aired yesterday, Amanpour asked if he wished the FBI could have “shut down” that kind of language.

“Of course ‘lock her up’ was a feature of the 2016 Trump campaign. Do you, in retrospect, wish that people like yourself, the head of the FBI, I mean the people in charge of law and order had shut down that language, that it was dangerous potentially, that it could have created violence, that it was kind of hate speech? Should that have been allowed?”

Comey responded, “That’s not a role for government to play. The beauty of this country is people can say what they want, even if it’s misleading and it’s demagoguery. The people who should have shut it down were Republicans who understand the rule of law and the values that they claim to stand for. Shame on them. But it wasn’t a role for government to play.”

Comey Crumbling? Fmr FBI Boss Says he Fears Investigation into Bureau Bias

Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey said he fears–“as a citizen”–a counter investigation into the DOJ and FBI’s shamefully biased probe of the Trump-Russia hoax investigation claiming it’s a “terrible cycle to start.”

In an interview which aired yesterday, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour asked Comey whether he “feared” a counter investigation into himself and the FBI.

‘I don’t fear it personally,” he said.  “I fear it as a citizen, right? Investigate what? Investigate that investigations were conducted? What would be the crime you’d be investigating?” Comey asked.

He continued, “So it’s a terrible cycle to start. He’s already started it with calling for the locking up of his political opponents, including people like me. And so it would just be more of that dangerous step. And I would hope, although he continued to disappoint me, the Republicans would finally stand up and say, we don’t do that kind of thing. But me, personally, ask me questions. Go ahead. I’d like to answer them in the daylight, if I could, but ask me — ask me questions.”

Many Republicans, including President Trump himself have called for an investigation into the handling of the Trump-Russia probe.

Notably, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is looking to investigate “whether those who believed that the FBI and the Department of Justice were playing politics, that they wanted Clinton to win and Trump to lose…”

Fox News Prime Time Ratings DOMINATE CNN and MSNBC Democratic Town Halls

Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson dominated Monday night’s ratings, beating out both an MSNBC town hall with Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand and CNN’s town hall with candidate Elizabeth Warren.

The Daily Caller reports:

Carlson more than doubled the MSNBC town hall with Gillibrand, both in total viewers with approximately 3.1 million viewers tuning in, and with 570,000 in the key 25-54 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. Gillibrand’s town hall, by comparison, garnered only 1.2 million viewers and 224,000 in the key age range.

Hannity also more than doubled the ratings of CNN’s 9 p.m. town hall with Warren–with 2.9 million viewers and 494,000 in the 25-54 target audience.

Chris Cuomo Makes a Flimsy Case that Manafort Proves Collusion

In a somewhat heated exchange with Rep. Matt Gaetz last night, CNN’s Chris Cuomo cited the case of Paul Manafort sharing a poll with Ukranian/Russian political consultant Konstantin Kilimnik in making an obscure case for collusion (while Robert Mueller’s special counsel has uncovered zero evidence of it). 

The sharing was revealed in an unredacted filing against Manafort filed in January. The filing disclosed that “The Government concludes… that Mr. Manafort’s initial responses to inquiries about his meetings and interactions with Mr. Kilimnik were lies to the OSC attorneys and investigators… The same is true with regard to the Government’s allegation that Mr. Manafort lied about sharing polling data with Mr. Kilimnik related to the 2016 presidential campaign.” Manafort asked Kilimnik to pass the data to Ukrainians Serhiy Lyovochkin and Rinat Akhmetov. The legal filing gives no indication that President Donald Trump knew of the matter (and remember that Manafort only actually worked for Trump for about four and a half months before being fired).

We don’t know what the poll was of, but it likely contained a cross-tabulation showing how voters reacted to different election-related questions.  There are a few reasons why this is flimsy proof of collusion;

  • This is a poll we’re speaking of. If the Russians (or anyone) really wanted to measure public opinion on an issue, nothing is stopping them from commissioning a poll on their own. Russia has outlets operating in the U.S. that regularly conduct polling on the issues, such as Sputnik.
  • Even if the Russian government weren’t to carry out their own poll, there is no shortage of polling data in the world. Numerous polling organizations regularly poll on the exact same issues. It’s relatively easy to find some measure of public opinion on any issue you can think up.
  • Are we supposed to believe there’s something sinister in sharing a poll with someone?

Most importantly of all, if Cuomo wants to view this as a form of “collusion by proxy,” by his own logic there was more direct collision in favor of the Clinton campaign going on. As the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross uncovered, back in October the former Fusion GPS contractor Nellie Ohr testified to lawmakers that the Ukranian lawmaker Serhiy Leshchenko had been a source of theirs. Fusion GPS was the firm responsible for British spy Christopher Steele’s bogus dossier.

Nellie Ohr did not describe the Leshchenko-Fusion GPS source relationship in greater detail, so it is not clear whether the Ukrainian lawmaker was paid, how he transmitted information to Fusion or with whom at the firm he maintained contact. Nellie Ohr did not testify whether she handled information from Leshchenko or if she provided it to her husband, who served as associate deputy attorney general and director of the Justice Department’s Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force.

As anyone who had the chance to read Spygate knows, there already was a strong case to be made for Ukranian collusion with members of the Clinton campaign, so this is just more icing on the cake. Unlike Manafort, Leshchenko has been charged for illegally interfering in the U.S. election.

On Dec. 11, 2018, a court in Kyiv ruled that Leshchenko’s release of information about Manafort “led to interference in the electoral processes of the United States in 2016 and harmed the interests of Ukraine as a state.”

That was because “Leshchenko, a member of Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau, is widely credited with publishing a so-called ‘black ledger’ [which is probably bogus] that purported to show that Manafort received $12.7 million in illicit cash payments through 2012 from then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.” Days after publishing the ledger, Leshchenko told the Financial Times that “A Trump presidency would change the pro-Ukrainian agenda in American foreign policy. For me, it was important to show not only the corruption aspect but that he is [a] pro-Russian candidate who can break the geopolitical balance in the world.” It’s clear what his motivation was – to collude in an effort to take Trump down.

Unlike the Mueller indictments of Russians who tried to interfere in the election, but had no connection to Trump whatsoever, Fusion GPS was on the Clinton payroll. For a network that reports on so much imaginary collusion, it’s a bit strange CNN hasn’t reported on the real thing.

STUDY: Wolf Blitzer’s CNN Show a “Weeklong Promo for Dem Investigations”

A Media Research Center (MRC) study has found that Wolf Blitzer’s CNN show last week was a “weeklong promo” for Democrat’s anti-Trump investigations.

MRC found that during his 10 interviews–all with Democratic lawmakers–Blitzer asked 86 questions favoring the Democrat’s agenda, and just three questions challenging the agenda.

Newsbusters writes, “Blitzer framed his paltry three challenges to Democrats as party-line criticism coming from Republicans (‘as Republican are alleging…’, ‘Republicans say…’). In each case he asked no follow-up questions regardless of what answer he received.”

In some instances, Newsbusters writes, Blitzer seemed to push his guests to be more aggressive in their investigation into the Trump administration.

When prodding Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Blitzer asked, “The White House is indicating they are not in any mood to cooperate with your investigation. Why haven’t you issued subpoenas?”

Media Blackout: CNN, MSNBC Ignore FEC Complaint Against Ocasio-Cortez

As of late this morning, neither MSNBC nor CNN have covered the explosive allegations of campaign finance violations against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, according to the Daily Caller.

It was revealed earlier this week that an FEC complaint had been filed accusing Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti of violating campaign finance laws and illegally funneling nearly $885,000 in contributions from political action committees.

According to the Daily Caller, while both CNN and MSNBC mentioned the socialist lawmaker multiple times throughout their programming, neither network discussed the allegations against her.

The Daily Caller writes:

A review of MSNBC’s and CNN’s on-air coverage via Grabien, a television video-clipping service, turned up nothing on these allegations levied against the freshmen representative.

Ocasio-Cortez was mentioned during seven different shows Tuesday on MSNBC. Her defense of Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is facing allegations of anti-Semitism, was referenced in four of those instances.

Her name was mentioned during five different programs on CNN, with two pertaining to Omar, and three on her questioning of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former attorney, in front of the House Oversight Committee last week.

Ocasio-Cortez has denied the allegations.

“There is no violation,” the Congresswoman told Fox News yesterday after landing at Ronald Reagan National Airport. She responded, “No, no” when asked if the complaint proves her campaign was connected to “dark money.”
