Thursday all three networks reported on President Trump telling reporters Wednesday that the whistleblower is not only a registered Democrat, but actually worked for one of his 2020 rivals. Trump was referencing a report that came out Tuesday and that ABC and CBS had effectively ignored until they were forced to address it on Thursday’s morning shows. While they all touted the whistleblower’s lawyers denials, CBS was the only network to concede that their own reporting corroborated the President's claims. ABC, on the other hand, flatly denied this information, claiming this was just a “smear campaign” from Trump.
