Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “CNN’s in-house media pundit Brian Stelter was confronted by a C-SPAN caller on Tuesday who told him the liberal network is ‘dividing our nation’ and called CNN the ‘enemy of the truth.’”
“Stelter joined C-SPAN’s ‘Washington Journal’ to answer questions from viewers when a caller from Minnesota accused CNN of committing over 300,000 ‘distortions of truth’ since President Donald Trump took office.”
Oh, c’mon, 300,000?
It’s got to be much more than that!
‘“You guys always talk about how many times Trump has lied, I’ve calculated and, I think with your chyrons [electronically generated captions superimposed on a TV screen]…, I don’t know if there are any journalists left at CNN but I know that, if I were to estimate, about 300 different distortions or misinformation that we get out of CNN,’ the caller said. ‘And you have to watch them in the airport, which is harsh, but if you added all that up to 46 months, it comes out to be 300,000-plus distortions of truth.’”
“@TimJGraham tweeted, ‘Oh @brianstelter did not have a pile of fans calling in to C-SPAN today. This man really brought the pain, saying ‘CNN is the enemy of truth.’ Stelter said yeah, Trump has ‘radicalized’ people with this talk of media bias. Laughably claims MSM is structured to keep bias out!’”
“The caller then evoked Nick Sandmann, who famously settled a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit with CNN.”
‘“You defamed a child,’” the caller said, adding that CNN is ‘dividing our nation’ with partisan coverage.”
‘“And I don’t believe in dividing our nation, it hurts our great nation, and, so CNN is really the enemy of the truth,’ the caller said. ‘That’s my opinion, thank you.’”
“Stelter, who seemed to be used to such feedback and has been labeled media’s ‘hall monitor’ by critics in the past, said he was grateful for the call.”
Okay…, well that was just another lie!
‘“I know you’re not the only person that feels this way,’ Stelter said.”
Now that may be the biggest understatement of the year!
‘“There has been a process of radicalization that’s happened in this country with media bashing that is absolutely unprecedented.’”
Yes, Brian Stelter, there has definitely been a “process of radicalization in this country,” but it has nothing to do “media bashing.”
And, yes, the media bashing has been “absolutely unprecedented,” and rightfully so!
“Stelter then said that many journalists live in big cities and have ‘liberal leanings,’ but newsrooms should ensure that ‘bias doesn’t seep into the news coverage.’”
Oh, come on, Brian…, what we’re talking about here is MUCH MORE than “liberal leanings” and “bias.” What we’re talking about here is a concerted and coordinated liberal propagandizing effort.
‘“Yet sometimes it [regarding bias seeping into the news] does,’ Stelter said. ‘I absolutely acknowledge that. I think it’s different to talk about things as if they are enemies.’”
‘“No American is an enemy of another American.’”
‘“No news outlet is an enemy of America.’”
So, now they’re willing to acknowledge their biases in an effort to buy their unabashed liberal propaganda campaign some time…, in their minds.
The media was intended to be the watchdog of the government on behalf of the American people.
Well, the American people have been sold down the river…, and what are left with is the equivalent of a fox guarding the hen house.
A more appropriate metaphor might be a nest of rats guarding your children.
In any case…, the liberal propaganda, fake news media was deservedly called-out here, and they are as guilty as hell.
In my mind, what these “news” outlets are guilty of is the equivalent of treason against our country.
