Media notices Trump cooling to more gun laws
It would be welcome news if President Trump is backtracking from his stated support for more gun restrictions, says the spokesman for a pro-2nd Amendment group.
CBS News is announcing big changes at the once-powerful network that fewer and fewer people are still watching.
Scott Whitlock of the Media Research Center says CBS News currently trails a distant third among the so-called “Big Three” competitors, which once dominated television news, and competed for viewers, before the age of cable.
CBS News has now moved “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell (pictured above) to the anchor chair at “CBS Evening News,” which means current anchor Jeff Glor has gotten the boot after a year and half.
Whitlock credits the relatively unknown Glor for being a more objective journalist than one would expect at a liberal network such as CBS News.
“He wasn't perfect by any means,” Whitlock says of the now-gone Glor, “but he actually made an effort to at least try and be fair.”
Glor’s well-known replacement is glaringly different, says the media analyst, which Whitlock suspects is an attempt to win anti-Trump viewers who share that view with the anti-Trump O’Donnell.
“Issue after issue,” Whitlock says of O’Donnell, “she's hammering conservatives, praising liberals, or just kind of towing the Democratic talking points.”
CBS News appears to be preparing for a war footing for the 2020 election, he adds, to be part of the “resistance” against Trump and his re-election.
News stories each weekday from reporters you can trust without the liberal bias found in much of "mainstream" media.
