ABC has quite a bit of bias, here are some examples of their left-wing woke stupidity. The ratings dog that won't die: The View. Canceling a show with great ratings for its time slot: the ironically named, "Last Man Standing", that went on to do great on another channel.

Cancelled[edit | edit source]

  • Last Man Standing- Tim Allen made a quip on Jimmy Kimmel that being a Republican in Hollywood is "like 1930s Germany. You gotta be real careful around here, you know. You'll get beat up if you don't believe what everybody believes". A couple months later ABC cancelled Last Man Standing (despite it being #2 in ratings, and a different demographic). The show was later picked up by Fox, and lasted 3 more successful seasons. Rational people think it was ABC proving him right by being intolerant woke douchebags.
  • The Chew - Good wholesome cooking show, with good ratings and loyal followers: cancelled. They didn't insult people like 4 abrasive hags with low ratings at The View. [1]

People[edit | edit source]

  • Rosanne Barr - A bipolar comedian, had her hit show cancelled because it was making fun of both sides (including the far left) way too effectively. So the far left drummed up outrage when Rosanne made fun of Iranian (Valerie Jarret), not knowing she was part black.
  • Joy Behar - Ignorant, spiteful ex-commedian, most famous for her role as steaming partisan Bitch-Queen on ABC's the View. I just track some examples of why having Michael Moore in Drag, doesn't help ABC's credibility, especially since they moved "The View" from their entertainment division to their News division. Seriously, they think it's a News show.
  • Bill Maher - Bill Maher pretended he was a Libertarian but was just a moderate left comedian with a cult following. Since he's not a far-left loon (aka Jon Stewart or the other late-nighters), he occasionally calls out the far-left for hypocrisy (and not just from a "they're not left enough" PoV). He just realizes the path to leftist utopia requires less woke and more moderation.
  • John Stossel - a Libertarian commentator that was forced out of ABC, and off of much of mainstream media for his views. Not because he was wrong, or didn't have a great following, but because the left doesn't appreciate truths being told that prove/demonstrate their biases.

FakeNews[edit | edit source]

FakeNews (Junk News or yellow journalism) is when legitimate stories or facts are suppressed, journalistic standards aren't adhered to, half truths are told, or a narrative spun to where the story becomes misleading or false. Think: manufactured crises, hoaxes, clickbait (sensational teasers/headlines with buried facts), bias or selective fact-checking, anonymous or paid sources, minor stories obscuring more significant news, delaying or ignoring newsworthy events, are all forms of FakeNews. Most retractions or corrections are evidence of shoddy standards and/or editorial bias creating FakeNews. Here's a few of ABC News's greatest hits:

  • 2016.03.10 B & L Landscape Company (Florida) - After worker (Ezequiel Soriano Lopez) shot his boss (Andrew William Little) of B & L landscape (Jacksonville, FL), a 3rd employee (Joseph Curry) drew his gun and stopped the rampage from going further, and prevented Lopez from leaving until the police arrived. Most media (and ABC) omits key context.
  • 2016.11.01 Greenville, Mississippi black church fire - Greenville, Mississippi church was set on fire and spray painted with the words “Vote Trump”, by a Black Democrat (Andrew McClinton), trying to frame Trump Supporters for the Race Hate. The Media had fostered it, and in reponse outlets (Atlantic, NYT, CNN, SPLC) ran sensational headlines about how bad Trump and his white supremacist supporters were to do it.
  • 2016.11.15 Six Communists arrested for assaulting Trump supporters - The "peaceful" protestors (according to FakeNews) and members of Red Guards Austin, were arrested for felony aggravated assault on Trump supporters while wearing masks, also resisting and evading arrest.
  • 2017.05.25 NATO - Trump criticized European Countries for doding their responsibilities to NATO, they startled slacking on their obligations slightly less, and came up with more money. The Press, Left and EU blamed Trump for hurting NATO by pointing out their failures and demanding they do better, white NATO confesses they got $100B and stronger because of it.
  • 2017.12.01 Flynn Fiasco - ABC (Brian Ross) falsely reported that former national security adviser Michael Flynn was prepared to testify that then-candidate Donald Trump ordered him to make contact with the Russians. The stock market dropped a few hundred points immediately, and ABC scapegoated (Suspended) Brian Ross for their failure of quality control.
  • 2018.06.19 Space Force - In response to China's increased militarization of space, and Russia creating a Space Force, Donald Trump announced that he wanted to split the Air Force Space efforts into a separate agency. The Democrats and their media attacked the idea, ABC news spun it as racist, MSNBC and other outlets just mocked the idea and omitted context and balance in the discussion.
  • 2018.06.29 Democratic Socialist - ABC's the View gave Crazy-eyes Cortez the softest of softball interviews, that asked her things like what's the difference between Democrats, Socialism and Democratic Socialism. You'd think this would be easy since she claims she's a Democratic Socialist (just like Hitler and Mussolini), but she couldn't answer.
  • 2019.03.08 AOC Campaign Finance Scandal - AOC and Saikat Chakrabarti (Chief of staff, former campaign chair), appear to have obtained majority control of Justice Democrats PAC in December 2017, raised more than $1.8M (and was responsible for her win), and illegally diverted more than $1M of those funds. This is the Dark Money that AOC ran on curtailing, not to mention potential fraud. The media isn't interested.
  • 2019.03.20 FOIA Requests - Brent Scher at Free Beacon Compared FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) requests to the EPA to see how many times media outlets fact-checked or investigated Obama versus Trump. The results showed obvious bias (aka FakeNews / Agenda Journalism).
  • 2019.06.13 Dirt from Foreign Government - Donald Trump took an interview from ABC FakeNews’ George Stephanopoulos (mistake #1), and he told the truth that any other politician would do (mistake #2). When asked if Trump would take dirt on his opponent from a foreign government, Trump told the truth and said, "I'd listen", then maybe go to the FBI. The pearl clutching hypocrites are shocked, but never peeped when Dems did it.
  • 2019.09.25 Hiding the Abortionist - Indiana/Illinois abortionist (Ulrich Kopfer) died on Sept. 3, and 2,246 aborted babies were founded neatly labeled and preserved (as trophies), and the media all but suppressed (ignored) it. The bias in suppressing the story is nearly as disgusting as the story itself.
  • ABC Tanked Epstein Story - Project Veritas caught Amy Robach admitting on hot-mic. that she had Epstein story 3 years ago, with interviews and witnesses, but higher ups tanked it because it make the Clinton and Royals look bad. ABC claims it didn't "meet their standards" yet far lesser corroborated stories against Trump certainly did.
  • COVID Testing - When trying to contain a disease break-out, testing matters. Once the disease is in the general population (March 2020), contact tracing and controls are impractical, testing is just trend tracking in communities. So those claiming we couldn't open until we had millions of tests were lying to keep us locked down. That wasn't science, that was fascism.
  • COVID is a hoax - Politico ran a piece titled, "Trump rallies his base to treat coronavirus as a ‘hoax’". (CNN, MSNBC, leftist polemics and politicians repeated it). He didn't. They lied. Trump called the effort to blame him for COVID a hoax. Even FakeNews Fact Checkers had to admit it.
  • FakeNews about Cagegate - This FakeNews fiasco was the fallacy that Trump's new immigration policy was breaking up families and putting kids in cages. The omitted reality was criminals (border jumpers) have always had the kids separated from the adults, as you aren't sure who are parents, and detaining both in the same place risks harm to children. The media even used faked propaganda images from Obama era to sell it.
  • Kavanaugh Hysterics - The left was outraged that Kavanaugh would defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, including the left. So they coordinated their attacks against Kavanaugh, and his character, long before any investigation had showed anything wrong with his rulings. In fact, they never really went after his rulings, just his character.
  • Medicare-for-all popularity - FakeNews, "Medicare-for-all is popular", even in red states. RealNews: Medicare-for-all is popular amongst the uninformed. Support drops below 37 percent (58% opposed) if survey takers are told that the bill would eliminate private insurance companies. FakeNews outlets love to popularize that Medicare-for-all myth. That's not news, it's propaganda.
  • Pinto Fraud - The Pinto never had a worse fire/fatality record that similar sized car, but ABC's 20/20 didn't offer that context, and instead used a film that had an incendiary device show that if a Ford Sedan was rear-ended at 55 MPH, it could blow up. This sensational FakeNews convinced people for generations that Pinto's were unsafe.
  • Pizza man - Herman Cain got an MS in Computer Science, worked at Pillsbury, managing 400 Burger King's, CEO of a restaurant chain (Godfather's Pizza). Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, CEO of the National Restaurant Association. Board of directors for: Aquila, Nabisco, Whirlpool, Reader's Digest, and AGCO. But sure, “Pizza Man” sums up his accomplishments.
  • Trump Rally Violence - There's claims that Trump advocated violence at his rally's -- but that's not the whole context. Here's the facts: Hillary and the Democrats paid violent protestors to go to Trump Rally's and beat people up. Trump responded to that with a Trumpism that he'd pay the legal fees of anyone that defended themselves and roughed them up back, on the way out.

All[edit | edit source]

  • ABC Bryan Ross reported Michael Flynn was going to testify that he was ordered to contact Russian Officials while he was running for office. (Ross got suspended).
