Once Upon a Time, Media Bias Was Actually Debatable


Jordan Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice details the latest findings in his organization’s investigation of the government’s cover-up of the meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch at a time when Lynch was investigating Clinton’s wife, who (you may recall) was running for president and was heavily favored by the Left, including the news media.

Sekulow points out that it wasn’t just a government cover-up:

… there is clear evidence that the main stream media was colluding with the DOJ to bury the story. A Washington Post reporter, speaking of the Clinton Lynch meeting story, said, “I’m hoping I can put it to rest .” The same Washington Post reporter, interacting with the DOJ spin team, implemented specific DOJ requests to change his story to make the Attorney General appear in a more favorable light. A New York Times reporter apologetically told the Obama DOJ that he was being “pressed into service” to have to cover the story. As the story was breaking, DOJ press officials stated, “I also talked to the ABC producer, who noted that they aren’t interested, even if Fox runs with it.”

Americans cannot trust the national media to cover the federal government or national politics.  They’re on a side.  Period.

I can’t help but recall wistfully a time when President George W. Bush generated mild controversy by visibly carrying a copy of Bernard Goldberg’s book, Bias.  The rapid contrast of the Obama Era sandwiched between the Bush and Trump administrations answered that debate definitively.

    Nothing new here. Sometimes the collusion has a reasonable purpose. Much older relatives recalled seeing ships torpedoed off Virginia Beach. News papers never reported it. We should never forget that the Spanish American War was also known as “Mr” Hearst’s War”. Newspapers “with a purpose” elected Abraham Lincoln, although everyone knew that it would divide the union. After Watergate, journalists frequently noted with pride “we brought down the President”. Was there a purpose?

      Yes, there was a purpose–Power. Drunk on their “achievement”, the press became a bully to every politician they didn’t approve of–and the cowardly Republicans allowed it to continue. Just one reason the lying leftist media hates Trump–he beat their ‘guy’ and he pushes back. Their power is being eroded, and they don’t like it. CNN etc.are destroying whatever vestige of credibility they had left….which wasn’t much.
