Leftists like to claim that the corporate-controlled press is unbiased.
But many centrists are beginning to experience the bias that conservatives have witnessed for decades.
Now a TV host confessed to editing her interview with Ruth Bader Ginsburg for a jaw-dropping reason.
Former Today show host Katie Couric is airing dirty laundry in her memoir Going There, which includes explosive revelations.
In the book, Couric admits that she edited an interview with the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to save her from public ridicule.
In the interview, Ginsburg expressed her intense displeasure with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other professional athletes who kneeled as part of the anti-American national anthem protests that swept across the country.
The Daily Mail reports:
“The former Today show host reveals in her new book that she let her personal political views influence her editing decisions after her interview with the late Supreme Court justice in 2016 . . . Couric writes in her memoir that she thought the justice, who was 83 at the time, was ‘elderly and probably didn’t fully understand the question.’”
This is the type of bias that goes into every single editorial decision in every single corporate-controlled press outlet.
Couric inadvertently pulled back the curtain on media bias.
The Daily Mail added:
“[S]he faced a ‘conundrum’ when Ginsburg made comments about Colin Kaepernick . . . The day after the sit-down, the head of public affairs for the Supreme Court emailed Couric to say the late justice had ‘misspoken’ and asked that it be removed from the story . . . Couric called a friend, David Brooks, a New York Times journalist, who advised her that Ginsburg probably didn’t understand the question, even though she was still serving on the Supreme Court at the time.”
Brooks, the “conservative” at The New York Times, is part of the media establishment that protests entrenched power.
“The Notorious RBG” must remain a venerated figure, so the comments she expressed must be excised from the story.
And the weak justification is that she “didn’t understand the question,” but her lucid response suggests otherwise.
And if she didn’t understand such a straight-forward question, her competency on the high court should’ve been up for discussion.
The Daily Mail continued:
Ginsburg went on to say that such protests show a ‘contempt for a government that has made it possible for their parents and grandparents to live a decent life.’
She said: ‘Which they probably could not have lived in the places they came from…as they became older they realize that this was youthful folly. And that’s why education is important’…
According to Couric, she ‘wanted to protect’ Ginsburg and felt that the issue of racial justice was a ‘blind spot’ for her.
If there was any doubt as to whether or not Ginsburg understood the question, she elaborated:
“Would I arrest them for doing it? No . . . I think it’s dumb and disrespectful. I would have the same answer if you asked me about flag burning. I think it’s a terrible thing to do, but I wouldn’t lock a person up for doing it. I would point out how ridiculous it seems to me to do such an act . . . If [athletes] want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive . . . If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”
Couric and other corporate-controlled press figures will agonize and hem and haw and rationalize and go out of their way to protect the Left.
Couric just laid it out in striking detail.
This former Democrat just called out the media’s obsession with race
The left-wing media always wants to put a racial spin on everything.
In fact, it’s fair to say that the corporate-controlled media is to blame for stoking racial tensions in America.
Now a former Democrat is calling out the media’s obsession with race.
Andrew Yang ran unsuccessfully for the Democrat nomination for President in 2020, as well as for Mayor of New York.
Yang was mostly regarded as a fringe candidate who ran on the promise of doling out free government money with no strings attached.
But he recently appeared on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” to discuss his campaign.
In the interview, Yang derided the corporate-controlled media’s fixation on race, and said that it was actually an impediment to his campaign.
Yang said that the only time that he felt any kind of racial animosity, it was from the corporate-controlled media themselves.
According to Yang, “I spent years campaigning in Iowa, Ohio, New Hampshire, other parts of the country, and I never felt the least bit unwelcome as a result of who I am, being Asian American, to the extent that I think that there was like some kind of different treatment, it was in the media. Truly.”
“I had thousands of interactions with Americans, and they were very, very open to my campaign. They were open to a different form of leadership. They saw in me a fairly regular person who just wanted to do right for them and their families to the extent there was a fixation on race that ended up being an impediment to my campaign, it was more likely to come from certain elements of the national media,” he added.
The leftists in the corporate-controlled media and the woke outrage mob have a complicated relationship with Asian Americans.
Due to above average academic performance, Asian American students are often discriminated against in college admissions.
Recently, taxpayer funded left-wing media outlet NPR expressed “disappointment” that an Asian American woman won an election for Mayor of Boston over a black candidate.
Andrew Yang has recently left the Democratic Party and founded his own third party.
The corporate-controlled media has accused those on the Right of being guilty of anti-Asian racism, but it would appear they need to take a good, long, hard look in the mirror.
Jen Psaki was just caught red-handed in a lie by this left-wing “fact-checker”
Chief Biden propagandist Jen Psaki has come up with some whoppers to cover for her boss.
Most of the time, the left-wing media and the so-called “fact-checkers” give her a pass.
But her latest falsehood was too much even for them as Psaki was caught red-handed in this lie.
During a recent press briefing, Psaki made the claim that as a result of Biden’s trillion-dollar socialist spending bill that “no economist out there is projecting that this will have a negative impact on inflation.”
Alleged “fact-checking” website Politifact – which rarely calls out the Left – was forced to rate her claim as false.
Politifact listed statements from several economists, some of them even Biden allies, who have said that they believe the bill will in fact cause inflation.
Despite all of her past misstatements and outright lies, this is the first time that Politifact fact-checked Psaki.
Politifact has a long history of cherry-picking which statements they fact-check, and tends to direct the majority of their false ratings toward conservatives, while often ignoring falsehoods coming from the Left.
This is the same fact-checking site that recently came under fire for distorting the truth in regard to the Rittenhouse case.
Politifact had rated a claim that Rittenhouse was legal to carry a gun, which the trial went on to prove was a true statement.
Politifact also gave President Trump a false rating for stating that Rittenhouse acted in self-defense back in September of 2020.
For Politifact to call out anyone on the Left usually requires them to make a pretty ludicrous claim.
What Psaki said certainly fit the bill.
It’s absurd to think that spending nearly $2 trillion would have no inflationary impact, and to claim that no economist believes it will is laughable.
America is in the middle of some of the worst inflation this country has experienced in recent history as a result of reckless government spending.
You don’t have to be an economist to see that piling on even more spending will make it worse.
It’s clear the Biden spending bill will increase inflation.
Plenty of economists do in fact believe it will, and Jen Psaki is a liar.

NBC News patted themselves on the back for this attack on parents that will leave you red with rage
The war on parents is escalating.
The Left’s radical propaganda being imposed on school children was exposed.
But now NBC News patted themselves on the back for this attack on parents that will leave you red with rage.
Democrats believe that school-aged children belong to them.
That’s why they’re pushing back so hard against parents who have discovered their kids are being taught the neo-Marxist philosophy of Critical Race Theory and other horrendous ideas.
But the Left is determined to make sure that the CRT-inspired curriculum is taught in schools.
That’s why NBC News triumphantly announced that their year-long coverage of a school district refusing to submit to wokeness has led to a federal investigation.
“After spending months relentlessly attacking the Carroll Independent School District in Southlake, Texas for not implementing radical Critical Race Theory curriculum, on Wednesday, NBC Nightly News eagerly touted how the network’s smear campaign had been rewarded. Earlier in the day, the Biden Department of Education announced that it would be launching multiple civil rights investigations into the not-sufficiently-woke school district.”
This comes on the heels of the National School Board Association asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate parents who object at school board meetings as domestic terrorists.
NBC News anchor Lester Holt said:
“The Texas schools in a firestorm over race. The new civil rights investigation . . . Tonight, there’s developing news in Southlake, Texas following the in-depth reporting NBC News has done there on the issue of race and education. A new federal investigation is now underway.”
The corporate-controlled media have effectively sicced the Feds on parents and school districts for opposing the Left.
Apparently, that has become a federal case.
NBC News field reporter Antonia Hylton added:
“In Southlake, Texas, the U.S. Department of the Education has launched three civil rights investigations at the Carroll School District over unspecified allegations of discrimination based on race, nationality, and gender . . . For almost a year, NBC News has covered the clash over race and education in this wealthy Dallas suburb . . . Volunteers spent almost two years developing a school diversity plan. But some parents pushed back, launching a lawsuit that effectively killed the plan . . . Experts say only 5 to 10% of these type of discrimination complaints become official federal investigations.”
The Democrats are stuck.
They have to defend CRT at this point, but it’s so mentally and emotionally bankrupt, so they have to use the force of the state to jam it down parents’ throats.
