It lasted just a few, brief, fleeting moments. But that’s
all it took for George Stephanopoulos to prove all over again what everyone
with a brain knows – the mainstream media is untrustworthy, inconsistent,
biased jackals who exist to advocate, not inform.
Personally, this is why I persist in referring to this group
as the Democrat Media Complex. They are collaborators for the same cause,
activists for the same vision, conspirators to achieve the same objective. And
here’s just the latest piece of evidence.
Covering the day’s impeachment trial in the Senate, ABC
began showing Trump attorney Jay Sekulow answering questions of reporters.
Obviously, Sekulow was presenting Trump’s side of the argument and attempting
to poke holes in the accusations being offered by the Democrat prosecutors. And
that was just a little more than Stephanopoulos could handle. Take a look:
If you wonder why this matters so much, it’s a perfect
encapsulation of the devotion these folks have to making sure the American
people never hear both sides to the story. Not that anyone should be surprised
by this. The bias of the media is, if anything, well documented at this point.
Remember Stephanopoulos himself is a former communications director for a
Democrat president and a committed leftist.
To be blunt, he’s never left his position as a Democrat
adviser. He’s simply changed the location of where he does the advising. At
ABC, Stephanopoulos realizes that effective bias and propaganda isn’t so much
about what you say as it is about what you prevent from being heard. Control
the flow of information to people and you control people. It’s as old an axiom
as media itself.
And it’s known and practiced not just at ABC, but is
replicated at the other major network news divisions. Consider:
This isn’t objectivity, this isn’t a free press, this isn’t
It’s advocacy, and also precisely why trust and confidence
in the mainstream media has never been lower. Turning that around is going to
be a monumental task, but so long as the revolving door between Democrat Party
operatives and high placed positions in media continues, yielding these kind of
embarrassing exposures of obvious bias, it isn’t likely to ever change.
And just so we’re clear, that isn’t the fault of Trump and
his “war on the free press.” It’s the fault of the media’s conscious and
willful betrayal of their own profession.
