The so-called “mainstream media” has been in the tank for the American Left for decades now, having long ago voluntarily surrendered its constitutionally-guaranteed independence to serve as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party.
During the eight years of the Obama administration, the MSM protected ‘the chosen one’ from one scandal after another, despite the fact that the president and his Justice Department actually spied on, investigated, and tried to prosecute journalists under the Espionage Act.
Now, however, the MSM has completely turned on President Donald Trump, eschewing any remaining semblance of objectivity with one goal in mind: To help the deep state and the Democrats depose the president and reverse the outcome of the 2016.
Indeed, when journalists published classified information during Obama’s regime, it was a crime, supposedly, and wrong. Today when journalists publish classified information meant to hurt the Trump administration, it’s heroic (and expected).
Then again, the MSM has also been publishing a massive amount of fake news — fabricated narratives that the Democrats and the deep state have come up with to smear Trump and drive him from office. The MSM is, therefore, guilty of aiding and abetting Democrat and deep state sedition.
This is manifesting itself in another phony scandal involving a call between Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky over the summer, in which Democrats are alleging he threatened to withhold military aid if the the Ukrainian leader didn’t give him “political dirt” on potential 2020 presidential nominee and former VP Joe Biden.
That never happened, and we know this because the White House released the transcript of the Trump-Zelensky call last month.
Nevertheless, Democrats are continuing to repeat the lie and the MSM is assisting them by refusing to point out their falsehoods.
The reason, says conservative talk radio behemoth Rush Limbaugh, is because Democrats and their media allies learned something from the “Russian collusion” lie that failed to result in the removal of Trump from office: They aren’t waiting for the Ukraine lie to be exposed, which is why they’re pushing it so hard and pushing for impeachment at the same time.
He cited a Fox News poll from earlier this week showing that 51 percent of Americans now want Trump impeached (though a closer look at the poll by The National Sentinel found that Democrats were oversampled by 14 points — so even that ‘news’ report from FNC is fake).
“Now, the Democrats in the media and the Democrats in Congress are gonna run with that as proof that the country is behind them and stampede us into impeachment while they can,” Limbaugh warned. (Related: The time has come for President Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act and put down the lawless, left-wing insurrection against America.)
“They learned something from the Trump-Russia thing. They waited and waited and waited. They waited on Mueller. They waited on the FBI. They waited on the DOJ. They waited and waited and waited for evidence, and there wasn’t any.
“They’re not gonna wait on any evidence this time. They’re gonna get this done before there’s any evidence, so that when evidence does get presented, nobody will believe it. I think that’s part of the strategy,” he added.
Limbaugh noted that Wall Street Journal columnist Kim Strassel noted that Democrats and the media are only portraying one side of the impeachment story to prevent Americans from learning the truth. Should that happen, Democrats are aware that the alleged support for impeachment will tank.
“I think there’s an argument to be made that Nancy Pelosi is fearful if you let this all come out, and if you let the White House and Americans make the counterclaim, that those numbers come back down again,” said the talk host.
“Right now everything is so one-sided,” he went on.
Without question, the mainstream media, like Democrats and the Deep State working to depose our duly elected president, are engaging in sedition, pure and simple.
