Seething McSally: Reporters Are 'In Cahoots With The Democrats'

Listen to the Article!

At the Media Research Center, we know a thing or two about singling out liberal bias in the press. Therefore, it's always refreshing when others note the existence of such bias. In this spirit, Senator Martha McSally appeared on Thursday’s Ingraham Angle to discuss her recent encounter with CNN reporter Manu Raju.

Thursday’s impeachment fiasco saw Raju approach McSally in the hallways of Congress with the question: “Should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial?” To which McSally retorted: “You’re a liberal hack.” The reaction on the part of CNN was swift and unrelenting, as noted by Ingraham:

 

 

Well based on the media reaction, you'd have thought Manu Raju got assaulted by McSally…. Senator, do you regret what you said?

In the era of cancel culture, it would have been easy of McSally to simply apologize for her remarks, instead, she doubled down:

No, Laura, I do not and I said it again actually as I went in. I said, "you're a liberal hack buddy." As you know, these CNN reporters but many of them around the Capitol, they are so biased. They are so in cahoots with the Democrats, they so can't stand the President, and they run around trying to chase Republicans and ask trapping questions.

McSally made it known that she is not one to play the phony games of the press:

I'm a fighter pilot. You know I called it like it is. And that is what we see out of the mainstream media, especially CNN every single day. So obviously, I'm going to tell the truth and I did it today and it's laughable how they responded.

Ingraham exposed CNN's hypocrisy:

What do they -- I have a question, what do they do on a daily basis? They call Trump a Russian asset. They call all of you hacks on a daily basis. I mean every line -- and they always say, well sources tell us or what we understand or people are saying. Meanwhile, it's just the people at the CNN producers meeting.

McSally pointed out that the bias is flagrantly obvious, even in the way reporters comport themselves around Democrat versus Republican senators:

Exactly. And then the Democratic Senators walk by and they say hi how are you today and they chase after the Republicans. I mean, it's honestly ridiculous as you know they are cheerleading the Democrats and they hate the President.

By now, Americans are experiencing fatigue over the double standard that is constantly on display in the liberal press.

LAURA INGRAHAM: Ok, you heard that, "you're a liberal hack." Well based on the media reaction, you'd have thought Manu Raju got assaulted by McSally.

INGRAHAM: Senator, do you regret what you said?

MARTHA MCSALLY: No, Laura, I do not and I said it again actually as I went in. I said, "you're a liberal hack buddy." As you know, these CNN reporters but many of them around the Capitol, they are so biased. They are so in cahoots with the Democrats, they so can't stand the President, and they run around trying to chase Republicans and ask trapping questions. I'm a fighter pilot. You know I called it like it is. And that is what we see out of the mainstream media, especially CNN every single day. So obviously, I'm going to tell the truth and I did it today and it's laughable how they responded.

INGRAHAM: They were saying you've gone full Trump.

MCSALLY: Well they've also said that it was unbecoming a Senator and I lashed out. And all sorts of things-

INGRAHAM: What do they- I have a question, What do they do on a daily basis?

MCSALLY: Right. Exactly.

INGRAHAM: They call Trump a Russian asset. They call all of you hacks on a daily basis. I mean every line- and they always say, well sources tell us or what we understand or people are saying. Meanwhile, it's just the people at the CNN producers meeting.

MCSALLY: Exactly. And then the Democratic Senators walk by and they say hi how are you today and they chase after the Republicans. I mean, it's honestly ridiculous as you know they are cheerleading the Democrats and they hate the President.

INGRAHAM: They are saying it's because you are in a tight race and you think you are going to lose in November. You're going to lose to the astronaut-

MCSALLY: Oh Lord, no. I speak the truth, I'm going to continue to do it, I've done it my whole life.
