Caught on Camera: Stephanopoulos Shows Again Why No One Trusts the Media

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 journalism.

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.
