Before you go getting super-upset about this story, please understand that liberals have a special set of rules which allows them to be humongous hypocrites. In a week that saw the liberal media fainting that President Trump dared to call out their lies as lies, NYC mayor Bill de Blasio attacked the press. While Republican Trump calling the media “fake news” will not only get journalists killed but literally destroy democracy, when democrat de Blasio does it, democracy is somehow strengthened and dead reporters are resurrected.
This is from The Guardian:
To New York mayor Bill de Blasio, Rupert Murdoch is directly responsible for Donald Trump.
In fact, De Blasio argues: “If you could remove News Corp from the last 25 years of American history, we would be in an entirely different place.”
In his view, without the malign influence of Murdoch’s media empire and its conservative Trump-supporting Fox News “we would be a more unified country. We would not be suffering a lot of the negativity and divisiveness we’re going through right now. I can’t ignore that.”
Translation: if we only had liberal media propaganda with no conservative voice, maybe people wouldn’t know how full of shit democrats are. Is there any doubt that liberals absolutely hate the 1st Amendment right of free speech and a free press? This is a major player in the Democratic Party wishing out loud that he and his liberal comrades had complete control of the dissemination of information in this country. I feel like this was kind of a Stalin and Hitler thing.
Making de Blasio even more full of shit, all of the “divisiveness” in the country comes from the left. They are the identity politics purveyors who hate everything about this country and have a problem with everything normal. You don’t see conservatives trying to abolish ICE, calling for all cops to be killed, or punching people because they look like Nazis.
The funny thing is, de Blasio knows he’s being a hypocrite and doesn’t give a shit because he’s covered by those liberal double-standards:
The New York mayor, who has never been on the best of terms with the famously aggressive press in his hometown, has his own criticisms of America’s media but has not restrained his attacks on Trump for branding reporters “the enemy of the people”.
“There is no comparison between a progressive critique of the media – and overwhelmingly corporate media, by the way – and a president who does not believe in free speech and is trying to undermine the norms of democracy,” said de Blasio.
Did you catch that? When he says he wishes Fox News was wiped from existence it is a “progressive critique” but when Trump calls CNN “fake news” the President is trying to undermine democracy. And the thing is, CNN has been busted dozens of times broadcasting false information, while I can think of no instances where Fox News had to retract a fake story.
De Blasio is calling for the utter destruction of a news outlet that he disagrees with and not because they have abused their position as journalists. Why isn’t the rest of the media standing up for Fox and condemning the NYC mayor’s assault on a free press? The reason actually proves President Trump’s accusations of “fake news.” It’s because the liberal media has an agenda that doesn’t include a non-leftist perspective.
