Many Americans refuse to believe morning shows like “Good Morning America,” or the “Today Show” are political, are anything other than pure entertainment. They couldn’t be more wrong.
In January, the Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie went out of her way to perpetuate a lie by the media that the pro-life teenage boys were the aggressors in a confrontation by leftist agitators as they waited for their bus to take them home to Kentucky from the pro-life march in D.C. In the video below, Guthrie hits an all-time-low in her career, as she makes an awkward attempt to shame 16-year-old Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann, for something he never did. Guthries admonishes Sandmann for “standing there,” while the Native American leftist activist Nathan Phillips banged his drum in Sandmann’s face.”There’s something aggressive about standing there,” Guthrie told him.
Despicable & leading questions from NBC:
– You're wrong
– I just stood there
– Why didn't you walk away
– I didn't want to be disrespectful
– There is something aggressive about just standing there (!!!)
– He was banging a drum in my face
– I had a right to stand there

Only two days after Donald J. Trump was elected as our 45th President of the United States, Good Morning America did a hit piece on his wife, and first lady-elect Melania Trump. The headline they used for their story read, “A Tiny Town in Slovenia Celebrates America’s Next First Lady, Melania Trump”. It looks innocent enough on the surface, but the video itself, reveals an agenda to trash our future first lady before she steps one foot inside the White House where GMA’s most celebrated first lady, Michelle Obama, resided.
Here are just a few of the responses from Slovenians GMA “randomly” interviewed:
“I have no idea.”
“Oh yeah. That’s Donald Trump’s wife that is from Slovenia. I don’t particularly like Donald Trump, because she’s also ashamed from being from Slovenia.”
“Oh it looks like to be the new American President, so that would be his quasi-English speaking wife.”
“I don’t like this Trump…”
“Melania, she’s there because she was searching for really better life. So that’s why she found a husband.”
“We are small nation, so everyone who succeeded in the world is a story of success.”
“She’s a bad ad for Slovenia. She talks like, I don’t know like she doesn’t like us anymore. I don’t know; she’s more for Hollywood than for the White House.”
Now, Good Morning America is comparing the hate hoax by Empire Jussie Smollett, where he lied about two white men wearing MAGA hats attacking him putting a noose around his neck, throwing bleach on him and yelling racial and homophobic smears, while saying, “This is MAGA country!”
Democrat Mayor Rahm Emanuel called the decision by States Attorney Kim Foxx a “whitewash of justice,” while slamming Smollett for using hate crimes to advance his career and receive financial rewards as a result. The case is currently under investigation by the DOJ after communications between Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff, Tina Tchen, and Kim Foxx were revealed where they discussed how she could help Smollett.
Rahm Emanuel: "Mr. Smollett is still saying that he is innocent, still running down the Chicago Police Dept. How dare him?"

Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts gave Smollett a platform for him to plead his case to the public. Of course, we know now, that Smollett was lying throughout the interview. Funny, we don’t remember Good Morning America giving President Trump the opportunity to plead his case to the American public.

Now, Good Morning America has the audacity to compare the case of President Trump, who’s been dogged by the media for 2 1/2 years over a fake news Russian collusion narrative, to Empire actor Jussie Smollet, who staged, and then lied about being the victim of a hate crime that he blamed on white Trump supporters.
Good Morning America reports:
While the two cases are completely different, the criminal case involving actor Jussie Smollett and the summary of the Mueller report into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election have raised questions about the definition of the term “exoneration.”
Prosecutors announced Tuesday that they dropped all charges against the “Empire” actor despite alleging that Smollett fabricated a street attack on himself, Cook County First Assistant State Attorney Joe Magats said in an interview with ABC Chicago station WLS.
Smollett said after the hearing on Tuesday that he has been “truthful and consistent” throughout the ordeal.
Between the actor’s claim and the dropped charges, Magats addressed the confusion, making it clear during the interview with WLS that “this was not an exoneration.”
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump said Attorney General Bill Barr’s summary of Robert Mueller’s report, which was released this weekend, was a “complete and total exoneration” of himself, despite that Mueller wrote his report “does not exonerate [Trump].”
“The traditional sense of exonerations was that one had gone through the full criminal justice process, had been convicted, and then evidence was found later to say it was a baseless charge and the person who had been convicted and incarcerated was then set free,” Gloria Browne-Marshall, a professor of constitutional law at John Jay College, told ABC News.
In both the Smollett and Trump situations, Browne-Marshall said, the term is being used in a more colloquial way.

What do you think? Are the morning shows more dangerous than, say, a CNN broadcast, where most people tuning in, already know they’ll be watching biased news coverage of the President? Please tell us what you think in the comment section below.
