Like most other major networks, ABC has a significant liberal bias (though not as bad as that of [[MSNBC]]), which includes [[George Stephanopolis]], the former press secretary for [[Bill Clinton]], acting as a news anchor. The bias has not gone unnoticed, as several of The Walt Disney Company's shareholders, including Justin Danhof of the National Center for Public Policy Research complained about ABC's liberal bias.<ref> </ref> Disney CEO [[Robert Iger|Bob Iger]], himself a former ABC executive, vehemently denied the accusations in a clear conflict of interest.<ref></ref> The liberal bias ultimately came to a head in early 2017, where it showed the so-called documentary ''When We Rise'' that depicted the rise of the homosexual movement via a [[far-Left]] lens, which ultimately resulted in ABC's ratings decreasing to such an extent that it barely managed to tie with [[The CW]], and dropped behind [[FOX]] as well as fellow liberal networks [[NBC]] and [[CBS]].<ref name="When We Rise">[ 'When We Rise' Hates on Republican Presidents, Shows Love to Hillary] at NewsBusters</ref><ref>[ BACKLASH: Gay and Transgender TV Die In the Ratings] at ''The Daily Wire''</ref>
==Fake News==
*In October 2019 ABC News aired shocking footage supposedly from the frontline battle between [[Syria]]n [[Kurds]] and the invading [[Turkish]] troops. The report and footage was described in shock-filled breathless language, intended to provoke the audience. ABC News anchor Tom Llamas aired the allegedly shocking footage, claiming it showed a fierce Turkish attack on Kurdish civilians. However, the footage ABC News used in their broadcast came from a nighttime machine gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, [[Kentucky]].<ref></ref><ref></ref>
ABC News chief political analyst Matthew Dowd has been accused of [[sexism]] for his attacks on young, professional, Millennial women.<ref></ref>

In 2015, the [[ABC News]] team of Amy Robach and Jim Hill secured an interview with Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Giuffre wanted a shine a spotlight on Epstein and the others who acted with him. "I viewed the ABC interview as a potential game-changer. Appearing on ABC with its wide viewership would have been the first time for me to speak out against the government for basically looking the other way and to describe the anger and betrayal victims felt." ABC never aired the story or gave a reason for doubting the word of accusers.
In October 2017, more than two years after the Giuffre interview, ABC's [[Diane Sawyer]] interviewed Ashley Judd about her accusations against Hollywood producer [[Harvey Weinstein]]. At that time, Judd had not yet filed a lawsuit against Weinstein and he did not yet face criminal charges. Yet ABC viewers heard Judd's accusations in full.
Investigative reporter [[James O'Keefe]] of ''[[Project Veritas]]'' posted a video of ABC News anchor Amy Rohrbach stating that she had the whole Jeffrey Epstein story three years earlier, with video evidence and personal testimony that only came out in 2019. ABC News spiked the story of the most prolific pedophile in American history,<ref></ref> raising legitimate questions about where the responsibility of a supposed "mainstream" news organization, that operates on publicly licensed airwaves, to protect child victims begins and ends. ABC responded by beginning an investigation to find the [[whistleblower]] who [[leak]]ed the video evidence.<ref></ref>
