ABC’s World News Tonight was the only broadcast network evening newscast to completely ignore the sweeping and bipartisan outrage against the NBA for their kowtow to communist China’s totalitarian censorship policies. That news blackout came after their Good Morning America segment which boosted Chinese outrage at Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey for daring to support pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. Of course, ABC is own by Disney, who routinely submits themselves to China’s censorship.
“Now to trouble brewing for the NBA this morning. The general manager of the Houston Rockets upsetting China with his tweet supporting pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. Now Chinese businesses are pulling support for the team,” announced GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts Monday morning.
Anchor and correspondent Paula Faris seemed to side with China as she touted their financial influence and elevated the backlash coming from the communist regime and their lackeys in the NBA.
