The Patriot Post® · Leftmedia Corruption Reaches New Heights
“Journalism is about covering important stories. With a pillow, until they stop moving.” —David Burge, 2013
With Big Media obsessively “fact-checking” President Donald Trump’s “pillows and sheets” comment in last night’s debate, that old quote came to mind because Big Media is vigorously smothering news about the Biden Crime Family. The corrupt alliance between the Democrat Party and the Leftmedia is the biggest threat to American Liberty we face today.
Let’s survey the landscape just this week.
We’ll start with National Public Radio, which receives $250 million in annual taxpayer funding. Will NPR commit actual journalism by asking a few questions about Joe and Hunter Biden? Nope. “We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories,” says Terence Samuel, NPR’s managing editor for news. “And we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions.”
NPR Public Editor Kelly McBride agrees, first saying there are “many, many red flags” about the New York Post’s Biden exposé, while also regurgitating the debunked canard about it being “Russian disinformation.” Then she adds that even “if that story could be verified” (fact check: it has been), NPR still won’t touch it because “the assertions don’t amount to much.”
A candidate for president is alleged, with some pretty damning apparent evidence, to have exploited his drug-addicted son and his public office to rake in millions of dollars for his family. That’s a “pure distraction” that doesn’t “amount to much”? Ponder that one for a moment.
And as the Washington Examiner’s Becket Adams quips, “Anyway, for no reason at all, it is probably worth mentioning now that a search on NPR’s website for the term ‘Russian collusion’ produces 2,859 results.”
Which brings us to another story the Leftmedia is smothering.
President Trump sat down for an interview with CBS’s Leslie Stahl for an upcoming “60 Minutes” episode. He obviously smelled a rat, because he preemptively released the interview himself before CBS could selectively edit it. What was the rat? There were at least two: the debunked narrative of Russian collusion and the Biden corruption scandal.
When Trump asserted that Biden is embroiled in scandal, Stahl shot back, “He’s not. He’s not. No.” Obviously, her assertion is false. When Trump argued that the even bigger scandal was the way his campaign was subjected to spying by the FBI, Stahl again argued contrary to the facts, “There’s no real evidence of that.” She even indignantly lectured, “This is ‘60 Minutes,’ and we can’t put on things that we can’t verify.”
You can now wipe up the coffee you just spewed on your keyboard.
Fact check: The FBI did spy on Trump’s campaign, and it did so based on the phony Steele dossier that Hillary Clinton paid for. The Left spun the yarn for three years that Trump colluded with Russia to win in 2016. Given Stahl’s demonstrably false claims, it’s not surprising that Trump cut off the interview and preemptively released it.
CBS hilariously responded, “The White House’s unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter ‘60 Minutes’ from providing it’s full, fair and contextual reporting which presidents have participated in for decades.”
In a separate interview also set to run Sunday night, Stahl huffed to Vice President Mike Pence, “I feel that you both have insulted ‘60 Minutes.’”
No, it is “60 Minutes” and the rest of the Leftmedia that have insulted the American people by serving as the dezinformatsiya outlet and super PAC for the Democrat Party. When the full might of the mainstream media is leveled against one candidate while covering for the other, American Liberty is in danger. And as Trump put it to Stahl, “I don’t have to discredit you. You’ve discredited yourself.”
