What a Joke: MSNBC Says Reporters Are Concerned With 'Not Offending' Trump Voters

Listen to the Article!

Aren’t all Americans jaded from the fawning media coverage President Trump receives on a daily basis? Of course, anyone who has watched the news over the past three years would know this statement is patently absurd. Yet, that did not halt MSNBC correspondent Tiffany Cross from laughably accusing the media of pro-Trump bias during the cable channel's post-debate analysis Tuesday night.

It proved to be a long night for the Democratic candidates and their cronies in the media, as they scrambled to defend frontrunners Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren against the scandals they both face. Cross began by offering advice to the Biden campaign:

 

...I think the Biden campaign has to be smart enough and not let Donald Trump lead them around and goad them into a fight. We already saw this fail with Elizabeth Warren with the, you know, Native American -- exactly. It's a bad idea.

Then, in what may have been the most delusional and ignorant statement uttered on television in a long while (which was a difficult bar to lower), Cross lamented the media for being too soft on President Trump out of fear of offending his supporters:

But the media also -- I mean there are no innocent bystanders here, and you have to fault the media for this. You cannot adopt GOP talking points. It feels like sometimes the media is more concerned with not offending Trump voters than they are with using critical thinking required for journalism.

Cross would be correct in her observation that the press has abandoned any semblance of critical thinking and journalistic integrity they may have had in them. Ironically, she went on to label legitimate investigative probing as “GOP talking points,” specifically the Hunter Biden story:

We didn't need to have this exposé with Hunter Biden. Until we see a money timeline of Javanka, who has made $82 million while Donald Trump has been in the White House, it's ridiculous that we're even having this conversation. Yes, I take Joel's point. Donald Trump likely would run that campaign, not because it makes sense, but it's the only campaign he knows how to run.

Seeing as the press in actuality loathes President Trump with a burning passion, her final statement made perfect sense: “He doesn't have anything. He has no issues to run on. He has no platform to run on. He has no success to run on.”

Perhaps Cross should read NewsBusters to educate herself on how the media truly operates.

TIFFANY CROSS: Look, I take your point, Jason. I think the Biden campaign has to be smart enough and not let Donald Trump lead them around and goad them into a fight. We already saw this fail with Elizabeth Warren with the, you know, Native American -- exactly. It's a bad idea. But the media also -- I mean there are no innocent bystanders here, and you have to fault the media for this. You cannot adopt GOP talking points. It feels like sometimes the media is more concerned with not offending Trump voters than they are with using critical thinking required for journalism. We didn't need to have this exposé with Hunter Biden. Until we see a money timeline of Javanka, who has made $82 million while Donald Trump has been in the White House, it's ridiculous that we're even having this conversation. Yes, I take Joel's point. Donald Trump likely would run that campaign, not because it makes sense, but it's the only campaign he knows how to run.

JOY REID: Because it works.

CROSS: He doesn't have anything. He has no issues to run on. He has no platform to run on. He has no success to run on.
