The mainstream media, like their Democrat partners, are hoping that the coronavirus outbreak will wreck Donald Trump’s presidency and therefore his bid for a second term.
Their previous attempts were dashed when Bob Mueller’s pathetic performance bombed. Then they pinned their false hopes on a chubby, whiny Army lieutenant colonel and a group of disgruntled deep-state bureaucrats to get rid of President Trump.
If the press had bothered to fact-check that scoundrel Adam Schiff with even half the diligent skepticism they displayed with President Trump, Schiff would have been charged with fraud and perjury months ago.
President Trump has weathered each of their failed attempts, but the press has learned nothing. What infuriates the Democrats and the media currently is President Trump’s rising approval rating stemming from his leadership during this terrible Chinese pandemic. Still, the ankle biters and doom spreaders yap and spread rumors and panic in a forlorn hope to nail President Trump.
In a recent briefing, one dopey reporter had his head handed to him by an exasperated President Trump. The question was to the effect, “Mr. President, when you threatened to quarantine New York and New Jersey, didn’t that send a bad message?”
Actually, the President mentioned a quarantine as a possibility. He never threatened anyone. President Trump didn’t allow the reporter to proceed on that false premise. In about ten seconds, the reporter realized that his biased Freudian slip didn’t work out as he stammered, equivocated and tried to walk his crippled question back.
Yes, it is the media’s job to seek out the truth. However, during the Trump administration, it seems that for the press, the truth is a malleable commodity. Biased outlets like the New York Times and Washington Post typically bury the truth deep in their coverage or don’t report it all—unless, of course, it fits their narrative about the President they hate.
Why, do you suppose, that some major networks have dropped President Trump’s daily coronavirus status briefings? CNN raised eyebrows when it skipped airing President Trump’s prepared remarks during a recent briefing. That change came just one day following Trump-hater Don Lemon’s urging the network to skip the briefings altogether.
What better evidence of media derangement is there than a column by a New York University PressThink journalism professor? The title of the deranged piece is “Today we are switching our coverage of Donald Trump to an emergency setting.”
In a fit of nutty self-delusion, the professor wrote, “We feel we cannot keep telling wild and ‘newsy’ stories about the unreliable narrator who somehow became president. Not with millions of lives at stake. We have to exit from that system to keep faith with you, and with the reason we became journalists in the first place.”
The disgusting media in America has gotten so full of themselves, they now think they know better than you what news should be reported and what shouldn’t. They no longer will allow you to make up your own minds. Objectivity now takes a back seat to an enlightened holy crusade in a mission to overthrow an “unreliable narrator.”
President Trump was undoubtedly overly optimistic at the outset of this crisis. So was everybody else. Come to New York and enjoy our Chinese New Year celebration, urged Mayor De Blasio and his band of community cheerleaders. Now New York has thousands of infections, an overloaded medical emergency system and many dead.
Surely the press could somehow be at least as fair to President Trump as they were as forgiving to President Obama, who once said that he had visited “57 states” and that everyone could keep their own doctor under his failed socialized medicine scheme.
