ABC, NBC Hide Polls Showing Trump Leading, Cry Russia Interference

As of Thursday, there were two sets of respected pollster results that showed President Trump pulling head his Democratic rivals nationally and in at least one key swing state. But conveniently leaked information to The New York Times provided excellent cover to ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News as it allowed them to ignore the polls and set the groundwork to falsely claim any Trump victory in November was the sole result of Russian interference.

According to The Times, the House Intelligence Committee was brief by U.S. intelligence officials who asserted that Russia was trying “to get President Trump reelected.” And these broadcast networks, in particular, ate it all up, as NBC White House correspondent Peter Alexander did here:

ALEXANDER: And tonight The New York Times is reporting that intelligence officials briefed lawmakers that Russia is interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump reelected. The Times says the President was so upset about that briefing, worried Democrats would use it against him that he pushed out the last director of national intelligence.

Over on ABC, sensationalist anchor David Muir had a field day. “And we begin tonight with that developing headline involving the President and Russia, and a new intelligence report that says Russia is right now reportedly trying to help the President get re-elected,” he announced.
