MRC ALERTS: ABC, NBC Skip: Family of Beheaded American Slams Obama for Treating Them Like ‘Pawns’


1. ABC Skips Own Poll Showing Record Lows for Obama on Leadership and Foreign Policy

Tuesday evening marked a return to ignoring President Obama’s poll numbers for ABC News as its evening newscast, World News Tonight with David Muir, failed to report on the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll and its findings. Between its morning and evening newscasts, ABC News refused to report on their poll, which found that just 43 percent of Americans say the President “is a strong leader,” which is the lowest since he became President. Meanwhile, 55 percent of Americans say that he is not “a strong leader,” which is a new career low for him in this poll. Plus, “Americans by a 10 point margin, 52-42 percent, see his presidency more as a failure than a success.” In contrast, NBC Nightly News both unveiled and discussed its own NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/abc-skips-own-poll-showing-record-lows-obama-leadership-and-foreign-policy

2. ABC and NBC Barely Mention Obama Approval ‘Near Record Lows’; CBS Ignores

On Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today, offered mere seconds on President Obama’s approval rating hitting “near record lows” amid his reluctance to aggressively combat ISIS terrorists. CBS This Morning skipped any mention of the dismal poll numbers for the commander-in-chief. On Good Morning America, after touting broad public support for the kind of military action against ISIS that Obama would likely announce in a Wednesday night address to the nation, co-host George Stephanopoulos noted: “It comes at a time when he’s facing some real popularity problems. We see 56% of the country disapproving of how the President’s handling foreign policy.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/abc-and-nbc-barely-mention-obama-approval-near-record-lows-cbs-ignores

3. ABC, NBC Skip: Family of Beheaded American Slams Obama for Treating Them Like ‘Pawns’

A family spokesman for an American who was beheaded in Iraq appeared on CNN, Monday, and slammed the Obama administration’s handling of the death. Barak Barfi accused the White House of playing a “game of bureaucratic infighting and Jim [Foley] and Steve [Sotloff] are pawns in that game and that’s not fair.” On Tuesday, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today showed no interest in the condemnation of the Obama administration. http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/abc-nbc-skip-family-beheaded-american-slams-obama-treating-them-pawns

4. Clift Crushed Bush’s Coalition Building in 2003, Takes it Easy on Obama Now

In the 2003 run-up to the Iraq war Eleanor Clift mocked George W. Bush’s 39-nation strong “coalition of the willing” as the “bullied and the bribed,” but fast forward to today and The Daily Beast reporter is taking a much different tone with Barack Obama’s 9-nation grouping. On the September 7 edition of the syndicated McLaughlin Group, Clift claimed Obama’s response to ISIS was an opportunity for “Obama to chart a course and I think bring renewed purpose for the rest of his presidency and to put policies in place that will leave his successor a better hand than he was dealt when he came into office.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/clift-crushed-bushs-coalition-building-2003-takes-it-easy-obama-now

5. Chuck Todd: Hillary 2016 Obstacle? Liberal Media is Sick of Her

On Monday, NBC’s Chuck Todd came on PBS’s Charlie Rose show and handicapped Hillary Clinton’s 2016 prospects and the new Meet The Press host stunningly predicted one of Clinton’s biggest obstacles would be the liberal media. When Rose asked Todd to rate Clinton’s chances, Todd responded: “If she were running to be the second woman president, I think she would not even be considered a frontrunner. She’d be just considered another candidate.” Todd then added: “There is a Clinton fatigue problem but it’s in the press corps.” http://www.mrc.org/biasalerts/chuck-todd-hillary-2016-obstacle-liberal-media-sick-her
