The Washington Post called out Joe Biden for something that shocked Democrats

Published

Democrats are used to having the press in their corner.

It’s a rude awakening when liberal politicians face media criticism.

And now The Washington Post called out Joe Biden for something that shocked Democrats.

In the final months of the Trump administration, Attorney General Bill Barr authorized the Department of Justice to seize phone and email records of reporters as part of ongoing leak investigations.

Joe Biden’s Justice Department continued that practice and only reversed course after reports of this policy surfaced in the press.

Washington Post publisher Fred Ryan slammed Biden in an op-ed for an “attack on the First Amendment.”

“Biden rightly decried this attack on the First Amendment, calling it ‘simply, simply wrong’ and assuring Americans that it would not happen in his administration,” Ryan declared. “Unfortunately, new revelations suggest that the Biden Justice Department not only allowed these disturbing intrusions to continue — it intensified the government‘s attack on First Amendment rights before finally backing down in the face of reporting about its conduct.”

Ryan also tore into the Biden administration for not being able to get its story straight in this matter.

“This delay is troubling. When asked about how the president’s assurances can be squared with his Justice Department’s behavior, White House press secretary Jen Psaki could offer no explanation. She subsequently released a statement disavowing White House knowledge of the actions that appear to have continued for several months during Biden’s presidency,” Ryan added. “The egregious acts by the outgoing Trump Justice Department, and the apparent doubling down on them during the Biden administration, should alarm all Americans, regardless of political persuasion.”

The only complaint members of the press had with Barack Obama was how aggressively his administration used the Espionage Act to target leakers and spy on reporters.

And in the early months of the Biden administration, it looks like this will be the one area where the press aggressively reports on Biden.

The Washington Post just made this major correction that will make Republicans furious

Published

on

The Washington Post has always been biased against conservatives.

But after Donald Trump took office the left-wing activism at the paper against the GOP went from bad to worse.

And now The Washington Post just made this major correction that will make Republicans furious.

Last February, Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton raised the possibility that the coronavirus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The Washington Post immediately denounced him as a “conspiracy theorist.”

“Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus conspiracy theory that was already debunked,” read The Post’s headline on a February 16, 2020 story.

The Post
was not the only corporate-controlled media outlet to adopt the posture that Republicans like Senator Cotton who warned that the pandemic may have originated in Communist Chinese biolab were racist fear-mongers and conspiracy theorists.
15 months later, The Post updated their headline to now claim Cotton only repeated a “fringe theory” that the virus leaked out of a lab.

“Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus fringe theory that scientists have disputed,” the new headline read.

The Post added a correction explaining why the paper took the words “debunked” and “conspiracy theory” out of the headline.

“Earlier versions of this story and its headline inaccurately characterized comments by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) regarding the origins of the coronavirus. The term ‘debunked’ and The Post’s use of ‘conspiracy theory’ have been removed because, then as now, there was no determination about the origins of the virus,” the paper wrote.

Corporate media activists such as The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman later admitted that the press downplayed the lab leak theory because they were afraid it would help Donald Trump politically.

The Washington Post denouncing Tom Cotton for promoting a “debunked conspiracy theory” was one of the earliest examples of this press dereliction of duty at work.

The Washington Post just admitted Donald Trump told this truth about Antifa

Published

Donald Trump tried to warn Americans about Antifa.

But the corporate-controlled media called Trump a liar.

And now The Washington Post just admitted Donald Trump told this truth about Antifa.

Last year, Donald Trump slammed the left-wing group Antifa as a terrorist organization.

Antifa staged nightly riots in Portland attacking a federal courthouse and laying siege to law enforcement.

But for months the media claimed Antifa was a creation of Donald Trump’s imagination, the violent radicals really weren’t so bad, and that riots where blood thirsty radicals tried to burn down a federal courthouse didn’t actually qualify as riots.

That narrative is out the window.

One year ago, The Washington Post ran an article claiming Antifa was a “right-wing boogeyman”.

But on Tuesday, The Post published another article admitting that Trump was right, calling Antifa “anarchists” driving a violent crime wave.

What changed?

Joe Biden is in office and the Democrats control both houses of Congress.

That political dominance is at risk in next year’s midterm elections as the rising crime rate and climate of fear that grips America’s major cities threatens to turn voters against Democrats.

Now Antifa is politically inconvenient for Democrats so the press framing has shifted.

This is the second time in a week where the media was forced to admit Donald Trump was telling the truth.

Corporate-controlled media outlets faced with mounting evidence reluctantly conceded that Donald Trump may have been telling the truth about the coronavirus leaking out of a laboratory in Communist China.

Now, with the political environment possibly turning against Democrats, the corporate-controlled media is pulling an about face on Antifa.

The Washington Post just wrote the most absurd thing ever about CNN

Published

CNN is going through a rough patch.

The network has no idea what to do with itself now that Donald Trump is out of office.

And The Washington Post just wrote the most absurd thing ever about CNN.

The Washington Post’s Jeremy Barr published a puff piece on CNN praising the network for shedding its reputation for straight news and diving head first into becoming an anti-Trump propaganda channel.

That’s to be expected.

Left-wing activists in the media often cover for one another.

What set off howls of laughter was The Washington Post promoting the story on social media claiming network President Jeff Zucker directing CNN to become a pro-Democrat Party outlet had no effect on ratings.

That may have been true before Donald Trump.

When Trump was in office, Americans were addicted to cable news and CNN set record ratings.

But since Trump left office, CNN’s lost two thirds of their audience.

Recently, not one CNN primetime show drew in more than 800,000 viewers, which was a sharp fall from January’s average of 2.74 million.

Critics contend that CNN turning into a full-fledged anti-Trump channel may have been good in the short term as it provided Trump haters on the Left a safe space to consume their news, but that in the long term it alienated the millions of Americans who just want the news and not bias or political slant.

These facts were all available to Barr and The Washington Post when this tweet was posted.

Critic contend it was ignored because like CNN – The Washington Post is in the narrative business – and the narrative they want to push is that anti-Trump propaganda is actually news and there is a wide audience for journalists shedding the mask of objectivity and showing their true colors as political activists.
