In less than a minute Chris Wallace nails the Washington Post on bias

By John Ruberry

The main­stream media reg­u­larly whines about Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump label­ing them as “fake news.”

No pres­i­dent ever likes his cov­er­age from the media. But since the media is dom­i­nated by left-​wingers, Repub­li­cans don’t get as fair of a shake than Democrats.

This morn­ing on Fox News Sun­day, Chris Wal­lace in less than a minute showed exactly how the media pack­ages sto­ries to make Repub­li­cans look bad.

I want to hold up again this front page, from yes­ter­day, the Wash­ing­ton Post,” Wal­lace began, “because I’ve got to say, I was really shocked by it. I fully expected it to say, ‘Sus­pect arrested.’ Instead it said “Bomb sus­pect out­spo­ken sup­porter of Don­ald Trump.”

The sus­pect of course is a man, who appears to be men­tally unsta­ble, who mailed a dozen bombs, none of which exploded, to promi­nent Democ­rats and CNN’s New York office.

Wal­lace, who is a fair jour­nal­ist – and that’s a sad rar­ity – then added some perspective.

And I went back and looked at the Post from last year after a Bernie Sanders sup­porter attacked a Repub­li­can base­ball prac­tice and severely wounded [Repub­li­can House Whip] Steve Scalise,” Wal­lace con­tin­ued, “no head­line there about ‘Out­spo­ken sup­porter of Sanders.’”

That is how low the Wash­ing­ton Post has sunk.

Look­ing beyond the Post, I firmly believe that most polit­i­cal reporters, hey, make that reporters regard­less of their beat, at major out­lets such as MSNBC, the New York Times, and CNN, when they are assigned to a story, will won­der to them­selves, “How can I use my account to make Trump look bad.” This is opin­ion mas­querad­ing as straight news. Trump repeat­edly throws a penalty flag at these biased sto­ries and so does an increas­ingly larger seg­ment of the Amer­i­can pop­u­la­tion. The most recent poll I could find on this sub­ject, a Gallup one from 2016, reported that pub­lic con­fi­dence in the media, was at an all time low.

The pub­lic that the main­stream media looks down on will have the last laugh. News­pa­pers, with the excep­tion of the Wall Street Jour­nal, the New York Times, and pos­si­bly the Wash­ing­ton Post, are doomed says Barack Obama’s pal, bil­lion­aire investor War­ren Buffet.

The mainstream media regularly whines about President Donald Trump labeling them as “fake news.”

No president ever likes his coverage from the media. But since the media is dominated by left-wingers, Republicans don’t get as fair of a shake than Democrats.

This morning on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace in less than a minute showed exactly how the media packages stories to make Republicans look bad.

“I want to hold up again this front page, from yesterday, the Washington Post,” Wallace began, “because I’ve got to say, I was really shocked by it. I fully expected it to say, ‘Suspect arrested.’ Instead it said “Bomb suspect outspoken supporter of Donald Trump.”

The suspect of course is a man, who appears to be mentally unstable, who mailed a dozen bombs, none of which exploded, to prominent Democrats and CNN’s New York office.

Wallace, who is a fair journalist–and that’s a sad rarity–then added some perspective.

“And I went back and looked at the Post from last year after a Bernie Sanders supporter attacked a Republican baseball practice and severely wounded [Republican House Whip] Steve Scalise,” Wallace continued, “no headline there about ‘Outspoken supporter of Sanders.'”

That is how low the Washington Post has sunk.

Looking beyond the Post, I firmly believe that most political reporters, hey, make that reporters regardless of their beat, at major outlets such as MSNBC, the New York Times, and CNN, when they are assigned to a story, will wonder to themselves, “How can I use my account to make Trump look bad.” This is opinion masquerading as straight news. Trump repeatedly throws a penalty flag at these biased stories and so does an increasingly larger segment of the American population. The most recent poll I could find on this subject, a Gallup one from 2016, reported that public confidence in the media, was at an all time low.

The public that the mainstream media looks down on will have the last laugh. Newspapers, with the exception of the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and possibly the Washington Post, are doomed says Barack Obama’s pal, billionaire investor Warren Buffet.
