MRC: ABC’s Karl, Obama: Are You an ‘Imperial President?’ – Actor Rob Lowe Slams Obama: ‘Waiting to Hear POTUS Explain the Disaster the World Has Become’


1. ABC Yawns as Jon Karl Grills Obama: Are You an ‘Imperial President?’

ABC journalist Jon Karl dared to push Barack Obama on his use of executive power, demanding to know if the commander-in-chief is an “imperial president.” But Karl’s own network ignored the question, declining to air it on Wednesday’s World News and Nightline or on Thursday’s Good Morning America. It wasn’t until the little-watched America This Morning, a program airing at 4am on ABC, that the question came up.

2. CBS Ignores Obama News Conference, Promotes Michelle Obama Dancing Instead

On Thursday, August 7, CBS This Morning’s coverage of President Obama’s Africa Summit consisted of a glowing puff piece on how being First Lady was like being in a sorority. Rather than acknowledge the existence of President Obama’s news conference from Wednesday night, Major Garrett, CBS News Chief White House Correspondent, played up how “Michelle Obama and Laura Bush shared the summit stage with moderator Cokie Roberts and talked candidly about the hard knocks of political criticism.” MORE: http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/cbs-ignores-obama-news-conference-promotes-michelle-obama-dancing-instead

3. MSNBC Fawns Over Liberal Author Who Pines for the ’70s With ‘Real Nostalgia,’ Denounces Reagan

MSNBC’s Cycle hosts on Thursday brought on liberal author Rick Perlstein to pine for the greatness that was the 1970s. Perlstein appeared to promote his new book on the ’70s and the transition from Richard Nixon to Ronald Reagan. Allowing that the decade was a “dark time,” the writer enthused, “But to me, there’s some nostalgia to that period. Because Americans proved they could look our problems in the eye like grownups and face them.” Remember, this was the decade of Vietnam, gas shortages, American hostages in Iran and inflation, to name a few problems. Perlstein attacked Reagan’s sunny optimism during the period, complaining, “One of the problems with Reagan, one of the things we need to reckon with, is he gave us absolution from doing that hard work as citizens.” More: http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/msnbc-fawns-over-liberal-author-who-pines-70s-real-nostalgia-denounces-reagan

4. ‘The View’ to Move Even Further Left? Rachel Maddow’s Producer to Take Over

Could the liberal-leaning ladies of The View be pushed even further left? It could happen as MSNBC’s vice president of prime-time programming and producer of The Rachel Maddow Show has been picked to be the new showrunner. On Thursday, CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that Bill Wolff will replace longtime producer Bill Geddie. The producer-switch comes on the heels of the announcement that the ultra-liberal Rosie O’Donnell will be returning to the set of ABC’s The View.

5. ‘Today’ Hosts Object to Restaurant Charging Extra Fee After Minimum Wage Hike

On Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Savannah Guthrie noted a restaurant in Minnesota that found “a unique way to offset the added expense” of the state hiking its minimum wage: “The Oasis Café is now including a ‘minimum wage fee’ on bills. You see it right there on the bill. Totals 35 cents….the cafe’s owners say this wage hike is going to cost them $10,000 a year, this is their way of protesting it…” Guthrie touted: “Now complaints are piling up on the cafe’s Facebook page. One man says, ‘Look, if you can’t afford to pay your employees, then you shouldn’t be in business.'” Fill-in co-host Carson Daly chimed in: “I’d rather not know. Hike a cost here or there, get your 35 cents and don’t tell me.” MORE: http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/today-hosts-object-restaurant-charging-extra-fee-after-minimum-wage-hike

6. Actor Rob Lowe Slams Obama: ‘Waiting to Hear POTUS Explain the Disaster the World Has Become’

On Wednesday, actor Rob Lowe took to Twitter to criticize Barack Obama’s failed foreign policies. Waiting for the President to deliver a speech at the U.S. Africa Leaders Summit, the irritated star of NBC’s Parks and Recreation demanded the President explain how the world literally fell apart on his watch.
