Mainstream Media Implodes over Fake News Smear of President Trump
This was a question from one of the media’s safe-space keepers to gaffe-prone candidate Joe Biden: “The polls today show you with a sizable national lead, a lead in a lot of the states that are critical in the Electoral College. I wonder, where do you think the race stands at this moment? What keeps you up at night as you look ahead? And can you maintain this advantage without campaigning in a traditional way, especially this fall when voters begin to really tune in?”
Contrast that question to the NBC Nightly News attacks on President Trump and this hardball, loaded question: “Why does the president keep hiring people who are ‘dumb as a rock,’ ‘overrated,’ ‘way over their heads,’ ‘wacko’ and ‘incompetent’?”
Also, when they are not actively attacking President Trump, the mainstream media are busy neglecting their responsibilities for fair and balanced reporting.
Take, for instance, the outrageous story from the left-wing magazine The Atlantic. It seems that “anonymous sources” told some hack writer that the President canceled his trip to France’s Aisne-Marne World War I cemetery, calling our dead heroes “losers” and “suckers.”
The fact that yet another ridiculous fable was published by a millionaire magazine owner and Democrat megadonor was news enough for the lazy press. In fact, ABC and NBC News unabashedly admitted that they had done absolutely no vetting or deep research.
Instead, they packaged the story in a beachball and patted it over to Joe Biden, who said, if true, he was shocked—shocked!
Never mind that everyone who was in the room where this supposedly was said pushed back on the story. Even John Bolton, who hates President Trump, denies the President said any of that.
In Democrat character-assassination politics, it is always the seriousness of the charge that is more important than the truth. The mundane truth, according to Bolton was that the President’s Secret Service detail and advisors didn’t want to fly in marginal weather. The alternative, an over 90-minute road trip, would have been through narrow highways, which was an unacceptable risk.
According to Bolton, the President reacted to his advisors’ recommendation in a calm, steady fashion, agreeing with their advice. The fake news story, however, insisted that the President didn’t want to go because the blustery, windy weather would mess up his hair.
Good one. Pull the other leg; no one is buying that crap.
Speaking of hair, we know how the leftwing media reacted to Nancy Pelosi’s really bad hair day traipsing in front of a security camera in a San Francisco shut-down hair parlor—without a face mask. The CNN political page has a headline that says it all: “Nancy Pelosi just handed Trump a campaign gift.”
The author rightly pointed out that Pelosi should have known better. “When you are the Speaker of the House” he wrote, and you constantly complain about the President’s handling of the Covid-19 crisis, “You can’t rely on what a hairstylist tells you” and then claim she set you up. Please, Madam Speaker, the author begs, try to be more careful in the future.
That is because the liberal and leftwing press would prefer to be Democrat lapdogs, yapping only at those who want to tell the truth about their duplicity, lies, and hypocrisy.
