Their Turn: ABC, CBS LIE About ‘Favor’ Trump Asked of Ukraine Pres.

Seemingly following in the misleading footsteps of CNN host Wolf Blitzer and White House correspondent Jim Acosta, the Thursday evening reports on ABC and CBS lied about the contents of the phone call transcript between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Both broadcast news outlets misinformed their viewers and claimed the “favor” Trump asked of Zelensky was to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden, that was not the case.

As this author noted on Wednesday, any honest person who actually read the transcript knew the “favor” (which appears on the top of page-3) had nothing to do with the Bidens:

I would like you to do us a favor though because out country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike [sic]… I guess you have one of your wealthy people… The server, they say Ukraine has it.

In the midst of her Thursday report on ABC’s World News Tonight, gushing about the actions of the anonymous whistleblower behind the complaint, senior congressional correspondent Mary Bruce proclaimed:

Just yesterday, the White House released the transcript of that call and it showed President Trump asked the Ukrainian president ‘to do us a favor’ and later urged him to investigate his political rival, Joe Biden.
