We’ve known for a long time that the mainstream media is a cesspool of corruption and dishonesty.
If you didn’t know that earlier, the 2016 Presidential Election provided enough evidence to convince you. They routinely ignored the mountain of evidence revealing Hillary Clinton and her people as being corrupt, from her illegal email server to cheating and lying during the primaries. And that’s not to mention her suspicious connections through her Foundation.
Of course the press worked overtime to invent scandals against Donald Trump, going as far back as eleven years to dig up old audio to slander him. They frequently distorted issues, invented stories, and generally produced fake news in the hopes of destroying his chances.
When all that failed, you’d think they would have learned their lesson and start reporting honestly. Not a chance. Despite their failing influence and readership, the mainstream news continues its hopeless campaign to undermine our president.
This, despite the ongoing reality that it’s been the liberals who have worked to destroy our economy, government, and democracy. They were the ones that tried to prevent the Electoral College from doing its job, they were the ones who tried to disrupt the Inauguration, and they were the ones who continue to put forward the baseless idea that Russia “hacked” our election. All the while its clear Obama and his cronies have been breaking laws to hurt Trump.
Now that we know former National Security Advisor Susan Rice unmasked names of Trump’s people and leaked them to the press, we have a very real smoking gun that proves Trump’s claims that Obama spied on him during and after the election.
Yet still the liberal media work to defend democrats, ignoring the evidence and blatantly lying to cover up facts.
Why are these people still in business?
A massive revelation in the alleged surveillance of President Trump’s aides broke Monday morning when Bloomberg reported that “[f]ormer National Security Adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign.” With their identities unmasked, it allowed for someone to freely and illegally leak their names to the press. It’s controversial news but ABC and NBC both chose to ignore it that night, while CBS defended Rice.
“We learned more today about the President’s allegation that he and his aides were caught up in Obama-era surveillance,” CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley said, teeing up reporter Margaret Brennan. Strangely, Pelley stayed away from flinging the fiery insults which drew him much praise from the left. Instead of calling Trump’s claims “baseless,” he kept it neutral, only referring to them as “allegations.” He also described what the concern was as “Obama-era surveillance,” something he had not done in the past.
Brennan played defense for Rice, stating: “Well, Scott, as national security adviser to the president, Susan Rice could and did request the names of individuals who were picked up during legal surveillance of foreign nationals.” She then cited unnamed sources who told her there was nothing wrong with what Rice did.
Now why would the press go to bat for former Obama officials? What do they have to gain by destroying their own reputations by covering up these new details, or trying to spin them to make it seem Rice did nothing wrong?
They are not in government and stand to gain nothing from this situation. Unless, of course, they are so biased they are willing to protect the corrupt actions of the former administration, in the hopes that future democratic candidates aren’t hurt by these allegations.
Not to mention, deprive President Trump of the satisfaction of being right.
More and more we see how petty, how childish, how unprofessional the media behaves when it comes to American politics. They were spanked by Donald Trump in the election and they will never forgive him for it. Even now Trump continues to defy the press, zigzagging around them to reach the American people. They are so bitter at their failures and rapidly losing ground, that they have gone to war–against Trump and the American people.
Even now we are seeing more evidence that President Obama and his people did some very questionable and illegal things while transitioning from the White House. Now more than ever, the press should be investigating this and getting to the bottom of the story. But what are they doing? Bending over backwards to protect the former president.
And they wonder why they are losing ground.
The time is far passed for us to reject the validity of the mainstream media. They have proven themselves to be faithless and not trustworthy with anything they do. It’s time that we move on as a society and support reporters and outlets that actually tell us the truth.
