Nets Hide FED UP Manchin in Despair Over Extreme Schumer and Dems

Moderate Democrat Joe Manchin hung his head in frustration on Thursday night and then spoke out against the extreme, partisan diatribe from his party’s leader, Chuck Schumer. But you wouldn’t know that from the three networks on Friday. ABC, CBS, and NBC ignored Manchin’s awkward moment on video. 

You can find more information here Fox and Friends, however, Griff Jenkins highlighted the vicious attacks from the Democratic Leader over raising the debt limit: “You might have expected Chuck Schumer to show some gratitude to the GOP Leader. But no, instead, he viciously attacked him.”

Jenkins narrated, “You see Joe Manchin putting his face into his hands visibly disappointed by Schumer’s remarks.” 



In the speech, Schumer slimes the GOP: “Republicans played a dangerous and risky partisan game, and I am glad that their brinksmanship did not work.” A visibly uncomfortable Manchin, sitting behind Schumer, shakes his head and then buries it in his hands. 

You can find the following: New York Post noted, Manchin walked out during the Majority Leader’s speech and later told reporters: “I didn’t think it was appropriate at this time…. We have to de-weaponize. You can’t be playing politics… Civility is gone.” 

Yet despite a combined six hours of available air time, ABC’s Good Morning America CBS This Morning and NBC’s TodayAll of them escaped the mess. When Mitt Romney spoke out against Donald Trump during his presidency, media outlets hailed him as a “profile in courage” and a “historic” figure. 

Manchin’s clear and glowing uncomfortableness with the Democratic Party receives no such praise. It may make journalists uncomfortable. 

Below is a Fox transcript

GRIFF JENKINS Instead, he attacked him viciously. 


JENKINS:  Now, guys, look closely. You should see the following video. Joe Manchin can be seen looking disappointed in Schumer’s comments by putting his head into his hands. This bill now heads to the House, where it needs to pass before being sent to the President. Let’s see how it goes. The President is trying to prevent a repeat last month’s devastating jobs figures, when only 235,000 new jobs were created. The 700,000. is far below the projections. Economists today forecast 500,000 jobs, a 0.1% decrease in unemployment from 5.2 to 5.1 percent. Subsidizing Covid cases is part of the reason for this projection. However, if the projections fail to materialize, it is possible for the President to inflict blame on the pandemic. After praising vaccine mandates, he was seen driving along the roads yesterday. This morning, we will learn the numbers. Brian, Ainsley, Steve?

BRIAN KILMEADE – Thanks Griff. Joe Manchin did a great job with his camera. Joe Manchin was in the back. He didn’t know he was being recorded. It was clear.
