In its “2013 Year in Review” Video, ABC Devotes Eight Seconds to Edward Snowden

I agree with Margaret Sullivan, the Public Editor at the New York Times, when she says the person of the year was Edward and the story of the year was the state:  Accuracy, Secrecy and Equality: What Mattered to Times Readers in 2013.

ABCNews apparently doesn’t.  Check out their “2013 Year in Review” video here.  They devote maybe eight seconds (maybe less) to Snowden. (If you want to fast forward, it’s at 5:14 minutes.)

(Screenshot from ABCNews.Go.Com)

They show video of Snowden saying, “My name’s Ed Snowden.”  Then they cut to a news reader who  says “The person responsible for one of the greatest security leaks….” and then to a clip of John Boehner: “He’s a traitor.”

It’s crystal clear what ABC News wants us to think of Snowden.  I’m so glad they, ahem, stick to reporting the facts and they don’t editoralize. I mean, if you have a point of view, come out with it and be upfront.  Don’t pretend to be a straight news organization while propagandizing like this.

Four Dead in Typhoon Haiyan? ABC Gets it Way Wrong

ABC news LogoABC News Friday, November 8:

Typhoon Pounds the Philippines, 4 Dead

You’d think ABC would at least preface that headline with something like, “…early reports say 4 dead.”  But no.

24-hours on, here we are:

 

Typhoon Haiyan: at Least 10,000 Reportedly Dead in Philippine Province

Estimated death toll soars as path of destruction leaves many parts of Philippines inaccessible to government and aid officials.

Four dead. 10,000 dead. You go ABC.

Get Ready For Two Years of Trump-Might-Run Coverage Even Though Everyone Knows He Won’t

It would be one thing if “E! News” did this but when the supposed “real” news outlets do it it’s pretty disgusting.  In short, get ready to get played:

Donald Trump's Hair

Here we go again.

More than three years ahead of the 2016 election, Donald Trump is already hinting at a presidential run, and the media — though certain this time around that he can’t be serious — are covering it anyway.

Dubbed a “sideshow” by NBC’s Chuck Todd and a “serial presidential campaign explorer” by CBS News, Trump is being accused by the press of engaging in yet another publicity stunt. “Folks,” the NBC News political team flatly declared this week, “he isn’t going to run.”

But don’t for one second think that means an end to Trump coverage. And lots of it.

Even as reporters suggest that Trump should not be taken seriously, many media organizations continue to cover him as a potential legitimate candidate, as they did in 2012. The reason for that is something Trump, the executive producer and host of NBC’s “The Apprentice,” is very familiar with: ratings.

[...]
“How many times do people have to fall for this game?” asked Rick Wilson, a Republican consultant. “Everyone knows this, and no one seems to be able to resist covering the spectacle, because Donald Trump – the brand – isn’t ever forced to post up against political reality. He’s a master marketer and brand-manager, and he’s learned that the media loves the bluster and the bullshit, even with the full knowledge he’s not going to ever, ever, ever pull the trigger on the race.”

When Will We Have a Better Media?

Over at ABCNew.go.com, under their “Medical Unit” heading, there’s an article titled:

Kids Watching TV via ABNews.com

That’s a screenshot I took because I have a feeling they’re going to change the title (or the first sentence) any minute now.

Anyway, check it out.  Read the headline and then read the first sentence:  “Young adults who spend more time in front of a TV during their childhood are significantly more likely to be arrested and exhibit aggressive behavior, a new study found.”

Disgusting.  ABCNews promotes television-watching in a headline while the first sentence of an article about television watching in kids immediately contradicts the headline.

Here’s a link to the original.

Shameless.

Alabama Television Station Won’t Tell Its Audience About Engagement of Sam Champion

It is my belief that one of the big reasons Americans are rather rapidly changing their perception of gays and lesbians, and coming to be more accepting, is because gays and lesbians are more out and visible in our society now than they were ten, 20, or 30 years ago.  People are saying hey, that so-and-so gay person seems perfectly normal to me so what’s the big deal?

The notion that all gays and lesbians look like this:

(Image via ChinaDaily.com.cn)

which has been pushed by the anti-gay/lesbian crowd for decades, is being replaced by the knowledge that lots of them look like this:

CNN’s Anderson Cooper (Image via LATimesBlogs.LATimes.com)

or this:

Sex in the City’s Cynthia Nixon (via TQN.com)

So I’m wondering if what Birmingham, Alabama television station ABC 33/40 is doing is intentional:

Fifteen years ago, Birmingham ABC 33/40 TV station refused to air Ellen DeGeneres’ “coming out” episode. It “cited a need to respect the family values of the largely conservative evangelical community in the region as the basis of its decision,” according to its Wikipedia page.

It appears the station still has a problem with homosexuality, as it has pulled all ABC 33/40 Facebook and website references to ABC “Good Morning America” weatherman Sam Champion’s upcoming marriage to his boyfriend.

A Romenesko reader writes: “This is the link to the FB thread that was pulled. This is where the “Sam Champion Engaged!” story was on ABC 33/40’s website. On this Facebook thread, you can see the link to the “Sam Champion Engaged!” story worked at one point, and Facebook is still pulling the proper thumbnail for that story. But if you click the link, it goes to a ‘Page not found’ error page on the ABC 33/40 website.” (They didn’t get around to deleting all of the stories, though.)

More…

I obviously don’t know if they have ulterior motives but how insulting is this?  The station admits it’s censuring the news to protect the delicate minds of its “conservative evangelical community.”  WTF?  If I was in ABC 33/40′s television audience, that would piss me off way more than the fact that Sam Champion is engaged.

TV News Cares More About Ryan’s Fitness Routine Than Arctic Ice Melt

When, oh when, will we have a better media?

 Since June, the major TV news outlets have devoted seven full segments to Paul Ryan’s physical fitness and P90X workout routine, and only one to Arctic sea ice loss. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC have each covered Paul Ryan’s workout routine as much or more than Arctic sea ice loss.

(Via.)

One – one — mention of Arctic sea ice loss amongst six “news” outlets in four months.  F-o-u-r months.

Stunning.

Dirty Laundry by Don Henley:

I make my living off the Evening News
Just give me something-something I can use
People love it when you lose,
They love dirty laundryWell, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don’t have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundryKick ‘em when they’re up
Kick ‘em when they’re down
Kick ‘em when they’re up
Kick ‘em when they’re down
Kick ‘em when they’re up
Kick ‘em when they’re down
Kick ‘em when they’re up
Kick ‘em all aroundWe got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who
Comes on at five
She can tell you ’bout the plane crash with a gleam
In her eye
It’s interesting when people die-
Give us dirty laundry
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/d/don+henley/dirty+laundry_20042033.html ]
Can we film the operation?
Is the head dead yet?
You know, the boys in the newsroom got a
Running bet
Get the widow on the set!
We need dirty laundry

You don’t really need to find out what’s going on
You don’t really want to know just how far it’s gone
Just leave well enough love
Eat your dirty laundry

Kick ‘em when they’re up
Kick ‘em when they’re down
Kick ‘em when they’re up
Kick ‘em when they’re down

Kick ‘em when they’re up
Kick ‘em when they’re down
Kick ‘em when they’re stiff
Kick ‘em all around

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do “The Innuendo”
We can dance and sing
When it’s said and done we haven’t told you a thing
We all know that Crap is King
Give us dirty laundry!

ABC’s Jonathan Karl Wants Us to Buy BS Excuses as to Why Bush and Cheney Won’t be at the Republican Convention

ABC bimbo Jonathan Karl — ABC News’ “Senior Political Correspondent” writes a cute little article about how Dickhead Cheney just happens to have a fishing trip planned that will keep him from attending the Republican convention in Tampa this month.  And he thinks we’re dumb enough to believe his crap:

Cheney [and Bush] to Skip Republican Convention

Dick Cheney has plans for the end of August, but those plans don’t include going to the Republican convention in Tampa.

In fact, while his party gathers to formally nominate Mitt Romney for President, Cheney will be out of the country.

He tells me he is going fishing – in Canada.

(Image via openprtspecs.blogspot.com)

Yo, Karl you’re dumber than I am:

“I’ve got a fishing trip planned that week,” Cheney told me. “I’ve done a lot of conventions over the years, but this is a special trip I’ve been planning on for a long time.”

Cheney, an avid fly fisherman, has been a fixture at Republican conventions since the 1970s, but this won’t be the first one he’s skipped. He didn’t go to the 2008 in St. Paul, Minn., either.

Gosh Jonathan.  Do you remember 2008 and why Cheney skipped that convention? Because he was hated: 18 percent positive and 74 percent negative.  Hello!

He also has good Republican company when it comes to missing this year’s convention: former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush aren’t going either.

He’s still hated.  And so is George.  That’s why they’re not going to be in Tampa.

This pathetic piece is considered “news” in these here United States of America and a guy like Jonathan Karl gets paid millions to report it.

ABC News Stacks the Deck Against Trayvon Martin

ABC News just sent this tweet out:

Go to the article — here — and you learn Trayvon Martin had a drug, not drugs plural, in his system:  “The autopsy report shows traces of the drug THC, which is found in marijuana, in Martin’s blood and urine.”  So there was one drug and there was only a “trace” of that one drug.

That’s a far cry from what is stated as fact in ABC’s tweet:  “…had drugs in system…”

They don’t call it the lame stream media for nothing.  Maybe we should throw something about shameless in there too.

If It’s Sunday It’s White, Republican Men

From Think Progress and FAIR:

An exhaustive new study by media watchdog Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting shows that the Sunday morning talk shows have been dominated over the last eight months by white, Republican men.

Between June 2011 and February of this year, 70 percent of all one-on-one interviewees on the four biggest political talk shows — NBC’s Meet the Press, ABC’s This Week, CBS’s Face the Nation and Fox News Sunday — were Republicans. The numbers were even more lopsided in favor of men and white guests:

More…

In the last  years of the Bush administration I read an article  — don’t remember where or the name of the author — that talked about interviews with several news honchos about the prevalence of Republican men on the Sunday morning talk shows.  The honchos unanimously said Republicans were on more often than Democrats because a Republican was in the White House.

Guess we know now that was a big fat lie.

Work Until You’re 90 — It’s Fun!

The ABC Evening News w/Diane Sawyer just aired a piece about how great it is to work until you’re in your 90′s.  The segment featured a 90-year-old hairdresser who’s still going strong and yes, she seemed perfectly happy.

Kudos to her but I can’t help but wonder what the point was.  If I know the “liberal media” like I think I do, what I just saw was an opening salvo in a campaign designed to convince already-exhausted Americans that hey, if the corporatocracy takes away your Social Security, any pensions you might have, your health benefits, your accrued vacation time, etc., life’s a beach but you’re just too spoiled to notice how great it is.  And if you don’t like it, strap your boots on, put a smile on your face and work into your 90′s, and if you complain or physically can’t do that, there’s something wrong with you, not with the system.

Newtmentum? What Mentum?

CNN’s Anderson Cooper’s big graphic tonight is:

Newtmentum

Newt “surged” to 28% in a (what a coincidence) CNN/ABCNews poll today so now we have Newtmentum?

Who wins a presidential election with 28% of the votes?

Oh, and we’re supposed to believe Anderson Cooper comes up with this stuff on his own?  He doesn’t.  He stole the Newtmentum thing from Z. Bryon Wolf.   (Or maybe it was vice versa.)

It takes a village.

No Labor Officials Scheduled (Thus Far) to Be on Any of the Sunday Talk Shows

UPDATED below.

So hey, what was that again about the “liberal media?”

(Image via.)

I tend not to get into the business of questioning the guest choices made by the Sunday shows. But if there were ever a time the networks would want to book labor officials to appear, you’d think it would be now. The Wisconsin standoff is the most important domestic political story in the country right now, and as many commentators at those same networks have pointed out, both sides view this battle as ground zero in a national war that may determine the fate of organized labor in America.

But labor officials are beginning to fear that none of them will be invited on this weekend to give voice to the labor point of view. This, even as tough-talking anti-union governor Chris Christie is set to do a major appearance on CBS on Sunday.

One AFL-CIO official tells me that reps for the AFL-CIO and other unions reached out to all the big three network shows — ABC’s This Week, NBC’s Meet the Press, and CBS’ Face the Nation — to ask if they would invite on any labor officials. Thus far the answer has been cool to indifferent, the official says.

More…

It is so true that average working Americans don’t have a voice on the corporate media — even on the “public affairs” shows.

UPDATED:  After an afternoon of outrage, MTP adds Richard Trumka to its Sunday line up.

Now we wait to see what CBS, ABC, Fox and CNN do.

Julian Assange Walks Out of ABC News Interview

Julian Assange walked out of an ABC News interview today, calling the interviewer, “tabloid schmuck.”

Here’s the video.

Given all that has been revealed in the cables WikiLeaks has leaked thus far, and the myriad of extraordinarily important issues raised by those leaks, I couldn’t agree more.   When the ABC guy asks Assange about the alleged rape in Sweden and “forcibly spreading her legs and ah, holding her down,” he walks out.

Good for him. Putting it that way IS tabloid schmuck-ish.  Ask about the rape charges but come on, show some couth.

Good Reason Not to Watch Good Morning America

Word has it that ABC’s Robin Roberts will “spend a day with Sarah Palin in Alaska, talking with the former governor about her book, health care, foreign policy, and taxes.” Good Morning America will air the video on Friday.

Sarah Palin falls flat in interviews that aren’t scripted like the ones she does on Fox.  If she feels comfortable venturing outside that bubble, it doesn’t speak well of her, it speaks poorly of the venue she chooses.  In this case, Good Morning America, i.e., puff-ball “news.”

Sarah Palin Says She’s Under Cyber Attack by WikiLeak Followers

Sarah Palin says her website and credit card information are under attack by WikiLeaks supporters.  Four words:  I don’t believe it.  Palin has a need to stick her nose into everything and to be a victim of everything.  That’s how she gins up her followers, disses people she doesn’t like, and keeps her name in the media:

The website and personal credit card information of former Gov. Sarah Palin were cyber-attacked today by Wikileaks supporters, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate tells ABC News in an email.

Hackers in London apparently affiliated with “Operation Payback” – a group of supporters of Julian Assange and Wikileaks – have tried to shut down SarahPac and have disrupted Sarah and Todd Palin’s personal credit card accounts.

“No wonder others are keeping silent about Assange’s antics,” Palin emailed. “This is what happens when you exercise the First Amendment and speak against his sick, un-American espionage efforts.”

Why “professional journalists” like Jake Trapper fall for her BS is beyond me.  Woops, slap me upside the head: Ratings and hits.

ABC News Tells Andrew Breitbart: Never Mind

This afternoon ABC News canceled its invitation to Andrew Breitbart to be a part of their online election coverage (yay!).

This is the letter they sent him:

Dear Mr. Breitbart,

We have spent the past several days trying to make clear to you your limited role as a participant in our digital town hall to be streamed on ABCNews.com and Facebook.   The post on your blog last Friday created a widespread impression that you would be analyzing the election on ABC News.   We made it as clear as possible as quickly as possible that you had been invited along with numerous others to participate in our digital town hall.  Instead of clarifying your role, you posted a blog on Sunday evening in which you continued to claim a bigger role in our coverage.  As we are still unable to agree on your role, we feel it best for you not to participate.

Sincerely,

Andrew Morse

Gosh, I think I can hear Breitbart yelling something about liberals hating free speech all the way out here in Colorado.

Andrew Breitbart, Sign the Petition Asking ABC News Not to Include Him in Their Election Night Coverage

I assume you heard that ABC News hired right wing propagandist Andrew Breitbart to be an “analyst” on Election Day.

Breitbart is the guy who edited and leaked the Shirley Sherrod video and the bogus ACORN pimp video.

If you think news organizations should hold themselves to a higher standard and that it’s wrong for ABC “News” to legitimizing this scumbag, please consider signing the petition at ColorOfChange.org asking ABC not to put him on on Tuesday.

Thanks.

The U.S. Media as Government Henchmen

As I noted yesterday, during the Watergate era, Nixon’s henchmen were assigned the task of trying to discredit Daniel Ellsberg.  Fast forward to today, and the U.S. media — working as an arm of the government — has assumed that role when it comes to Wikileaks and Julian Assange.

Here is another case in point:

On the October 22 broadcast of ABC World News With Diane Sawyer, the anchor weighed in on the WikiLeaks Iraq War documents by noting, “Arab television is already trumpeting the revelations.” Not exactly a promising start, but the correspondent Martha Raddatz did a pretty good job of conveying the findings:  hundreds of Iraqi civilians killed at checkpoints, thousands of unreported civilian deaths and torture of detainees.

Then the report went back to Sawyer for a follow-up question:

“I know there’s a lot of outrage about this again tonight, Martha. But tell me, anything more about prosecuting the WikiLeaks group?”

Gee.  Whatever happened to an independent media?  Wikileaks is doing the U.S. media’s job for it and they can’t stand it.

Now that corporations are buying our government, the term “corporate media” is taking on a whole new meaning.  The media is government is the corporation.  They’ll soon be one and the same.

During Watergate, Nixon’s Goons Tried to Destroy Daniel Ellsberg. Today, the Media Is Assuming That Role With Regard to Julian Assange of Wikileaks

Glenn Greenwald nails it, as always:

After Daniel Ellsberg leaked the Pentagon Papers, exposing the lies, brutality and inhumanity that drove America’s role in the Vietnam War, President Nixon and Henry Kissinger infamously plotted to smear his reputation and destroy his credibility.

[...]

This weekend, WikiLeaks released over 400,000 classified documents of the Iraq War detailing genuinely horrific facts about massive civilian death, U.S. complicity in widespread Iraqi torture, systematic government deceit over body counts, and the slaughter of civilians by American forces about which Daniel Ellsberg himself said, as the New York Times put it: “many of the civilian deaths there could be counted as murder.”

Predictably, just as happened with Ellsberg, there is now a major, coordinated effort underway to smear WikiLeaks’ founder, Julian Assange, and to malign his mental health — all as a means of distracting attention away from these highly disturbing revelations and to impede the ability of WikiLeaks to further expose government secrets and wrongdoing with its leaks.  But now, the smear campaign is led not by Executive Branch officials, but by members of the establishment media.

This is a horrifying turn of events.  The media is supposed to hold government accountable — not be its partner.

Case in point:

This would be Howard Kurtz, of CNN’s “Reliable Sources” today, talking about Julian Assange walking out on a CNN interview Friday.

Watch the video here.  The interviewer wanted to talk about office intrigue at Wikileaks instead of the contents of the 400,000 documents Wikileaks dumped overnight on Thursday.  It was silly and a waste of Assange’s time (and judging from what Kurtz said, CNN didn’t learn a thing from it).

Is David Gregory Afraid or Arrogant Beyond Belief?

Why won’t David Gregory, the host of NBC’s Meet the Press, allow PolitiFact.org to publicly fact check what happens on his show?  Jay Rosen has some ideas:

David Gregory, the host of NBC’s Meet the Press, has painted himself into a strange corner with his assertion that there’s no need to fact check what his guests say on the air because viewers can do that “on their own terms.”  His competitor, Jake Tapper of ABC News, disagrees. Tapper has instituted the after-the-show fact check on This Week. I am a participant in the story of how this happened, as you can see from the time line I have constructed. At the bottom of the post, I offer a brief comment on what I think is going on here.

[...]

Interpretation: So… what is going on here?  As with his defiant claims that the press did well in questioning the Bush Administration’s case for war, David Gregory believes he always and already asks the questions necessary to get at the truth. (So what’s your problem?)  If the truth does not emerge from his interviews, it’s not his fault because he–always and already–asks the tough questions. That’s who he is. It’s in his DNA. The criticism he gets is therefore partisan chatter. Or it comes from people who want him to go beyond asking the tough questions to the point of conclusion: that man is lying.

David Gregory thinks that is not his role.

Look at it this way: the Washington politician who’s been on Meet the Press more than any other is John McCain. On April 6, Politifact’s truth-o-meter rated McCain a pants-on-fire-liar for claiming that he never called himself a maverick. See what I mean?

I see two other possibilities for his refusal to adopt the fact check: one banal, the other more troubling. The banal: He’s too proud to adopt something that a competitor picked up on first; it would look like a “me too” response and he is the market leader, first in the ratings and heir to the chair that Tim Russert held.  The more disturbing possibility is that he thinks Tapper’s policy may give Meet the Press a competitive edge in booking guests who won’t want to be checked so vigorously. (As opposed to competing with an even better fact check, which would probably cause Bob Schieffer at Face the Nation to adopt the same policy, forcing the guests to accept the new rules or flee to cable, which has a fraction of the viewers.)

Well, at least Jake Trapper has the guts to make this innovative move so kudos to him and to the people who in turn have the guts to go on his show.  What we may learn in the end, if Meet the Press and Face the Nation refuse this challenge, is just exactly who the wimp politicians are who tell such tall tales that they afraid to face Trapper and PolitiFact and to appear on This Week.

New Crisis at the White House: Joe Biden’s Choice of a Cheesesteak Sandwich

Vice President Joe Biden was in Philadelphia today.  While there, he stopped at “Pat’s” cheesesteak.  “Geno’s” cheesesteak is across the street. The two have been rivals for years.

Jake Trapper, the “senior White House correspondent for ABCNews” and his colleagues thought Biden’s choice was a big enough deal to tweet about it (this would be what “journalists” concern themselves with these days folks):

Reminder:  Disney owns ABCNews.  That pretty much says it all.
