The “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC used their flagship newscasts on Wednesday night and Thursday morning to giddily promote the hundreds of millions far-left New York has ordered former President Trump to pay in multiple partisan prosecutions. In contrast, they eagerly played groupies for the Biden regime with puff pieces on Biden’s microchips visit to Arizona and a new tranche of student loan forgiveness.

All three morning shows excitedly promoted Biden’s new handout to voters. ABC had senior White House correspondent Selina Wang appear on Good Morning America to cheer Biden being “eager to show this core group of voters that he has not given up” on them (click “expand”):

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: To Washington now where the Biden administration is announcing a new round of student debt relief for tens of thousands of borrowers who currently work in public service. Senior White House correspondent Selena Wang has the details. Good morning, Selina.

WANG: Hey, good morning George. So, the President is announcing more student loan relief, focusing on key campaign promise. This morning, the President — he’s canceling nearly $6 billion in student debt for 78,000 public service workers. Now, these are nurses, teachers, firefighters, and others who are currently enrolled in the public service loan forgiveness program. And they’ll soon be getting an e-mail from the President telling them about this relief. Now, with this latest move, the White House says this administration has canceled a total of $144 billion in debt for nearly four million Americans and they say that another nearly 400,000 public service workers — they are on-track to have their student loans forgiven in the coming two years. Now, last year, remember, the Supreme Court had struck down Biden’s original plan to cancel $10,000 for all borrowers making less than $125,000 a year. But the President has found ways around that to cancel more student debt for borrowers. Now, with the general election heating up, this President is eager to show this core group of voters that he has not given up yet. This morning, again vowing to use the tools he can to cancel more student debt for more Americans and borrowers[.]
