Major media outlets are replaying Republicans from the Clinton Impeachment to show they are now diametrically opposed to the positions they took during that impeachment. This is true. But I would argue the same holds true of the Democrats. In fact, Democrats in congress, including Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, sound very much like the Republicans do now. The media not showing both sides of the story is clear evidence of bias in their approach to this story.
Likewise, there is increasing evidence that Elizabeth Warren is lying about getting fired from a job for being pregnant. Don’t believe me. Believe Elizabeth Warren. Both on video and in a book she wrote about it being her decision to leave her job. Likewise, school board records show the local school system asked her to come back.
Instead of rebutting the story, journalists are claiming “everybody knows this sort of stuff happened.” No one disputes that. The dispute is that it happened to Elizabeth Warren. It appears that it did not and that she is lying. The media’s coverage of this is, yet again, another reason so many on the right do not trust the media.
Reporters are outraged that people on the right are believing fake news and conspiracy theories. The problem is the media itself is largely responsible for this. The media has shown it is so wholly biased against conservatives that conservatives have turned elsewhere for news, sometimes to rabbit holes down which they fall into conspiracy land.
The media needs to do a better job, but it is too unaware of its own biases and thinks everything is fine.
