Disney’s new CEO Bob Chapek is evidently unaware of the massive anti-conservative bias at Disney’s ABC News division based on a jaw dropping response he gave to a pointed question posed by Justin Danhof, Esq. during the annual meeting of Disney shareholders held Wednesday, March 11 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
As National Center General Counsel and Free Enterprise Project (FEP) Director, Justin Danhof, Esq. has been a lone warrior in the quest to thwart the unreported but very disturbing and real trend of the leftist hijacking of America’s corporations.
Danhof received applause after he questioned Chapek – who replaced former Disney CEO Bob Iger – about the blatant bias at ABC News, citing a study by the Media Research Center “showing that recent coverage of President Trump across the broadcast channels was negative 93 percent of the time.”
Danhof continued to confront Chapek with the recent report by Project Veritas, in which self-described socialist and ABC News correspondent David Wright acknowledged:
“[W]e also don’t give [Trump] credit for what things he does do…. I feel terrible about it, I feel that the truth suffers, the voters are poorly informed…. Our bosses don’t see an upside in doing the job we’re supposed to do.”
Justin Danhof summed up his evidence of ABC News bias with the question:
“What steps are you taking to return objectivity to ABC News? And when can we expect to see balanced coverage on your airwaves?”
Bob Chapek was quick to throw David Wright under the bus, oddly responding that it was Wright’s objectivity that should be questioned. Further, he said he believes ABC News “has a stellar track record of being objective in reporting the news…”
Listen to the exchange:
As reported at RAIR Foundation USA, (see here, here, and here) hard left activists are relentlessly working to influence industry for power and as a platform to push leftist policies. Unfortunately, they are largely successful as the mainstream media does not bring this phenomenon to the attention of Americans, and even grassroots media and citizen journalists are largely not engaged in reporting this threat.
Unsung heroes like Justin Danhof should be supported by all Americans who value the endangered free market system that has resulted in unprecedented prosperity and innovation for all people.
