Regarding the reporting of Obamagate, Jonathan Tobin’s heart is in the right place, but his understanding has a long way to go to catch up.
Jonathan Tobin, wrote in The New York Post, “For reporting Obamagate straight, media knives are out for Catherine Herridge.”
“Journalists are pack animals, he continues.”
I would say that’s being extremely kind.
Jackasses are considered pack animals, aren’t they?
He continues, “That’s especially true in Washington. Despite the hunger for scoops, when it comes to the substance of stories, few have the guts to go against the ideological groupthink that prevails in our nation’s capital.”
Hunger for scoops?
Are you serious?
Their hunger for “scoops” exists only as long as these “scoops” pertain to negative news about President Trump, his administration, republicans in Congress, and republicans and conservatives in general.
And you think what we’re dealing with here is “groupthink,” huh?
I’m sorry, Mr. Tobin…, this isn’t groupthink, it’s called toeing the party line…, promoting the approved narrative…, pushing the desired propaganda, or performing propaganda by omission.
“That’s what makes CBS’ Catherine Herridge so exceptional,” Tobin goes on to say.
So, a journalist doing what a journalist should be doing makes them exceptional these days?
I guess it does, actually.
“In an era when too many network journalists slant their reporting to serve establishment opinion, Herridge sticks to the facts. Her dogged determination to get to the bottom of stories has made her an invaluable source on the national-security beat.”
If I didn’t know any better, Mr. Tobin, I’d say you have a little thing for Catherine Herridge! Why else would you throw yourself to the liberal wolves to sing Catherine Herridge’s praises?
And, “when too many network journalists slant their reporting?”
Is that what your calling all of this conspiratorial, fraudulent “reporting,” Mr. Tobin…, being “slanted?”
“Her sterling quality and integrity have also put a target on her back. When it came to the ‘collusion hoax,’ she dared to let the truth guide her. Likewise, with her reporting into government misconduct in the prosecution of President Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.”
“Most of her colleagues reveled in collusion falsehoods — and ignored FBI wrongdoing. She did the opposite.”
They did more than revel in the “collusion falsehoods,” they knowingly perpetuated these “falsehoods” (LIES) on the American people for well over two years!
Day after day…, night after night.
“But there’s always a price to be paid for refusing to conform. If you expose documents that further discredit the already-exploded myth that Trump colluded with Russia, you are going to lose friends in Washington.”
So, exposing the truth will cause you to “lose friends” amongst the Washington media.
That alone is quite telling.
“If you show that there was a concerted attempt to spy on his campaign and to leak information designed to paralyze his administration, you aren’t going to be popular with journalists who were part of this effort.”
So, she’s not going to be popular with “journalists” who got the story entirely wrong…, knew they got the story entirely wrong…, earned “journalism” awards for their excellence in reporting a story that was entirely false, but pushed it anyway because their ultimate goal was to discredit President Trump and somehow remove him from office?
Hopefully Catherine Herridge is okay with that. I always liked her, and I also felt she was one of the few who had a degree of integrity left.
“So, it’s hardly surprising that Herridge — a star reporter at Fox News from 1996 until last year before moving to CBS — has been subjected to abuse by Joe Biden’s campaign mouthpiece and backstabbed by her colleagues in recent days.”
Her big mistake was allowing herself to be lured to CBS, just like Megyn Kelly was lured to NBC.
You know the old saying, “Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer?”
Megyn Kelly was eventually silenced at NBC, and I expect Catherine Herridge will be silenced as well at CBS in the not too distant future.
Eating their contracts is a small price to pay in the grand scheme of things.
And don’t be fooled…, THE LIBERAL NARRATIVE IS ONE, BIG, GRAND SCHEME.
