The liberal media have been quick to abandon their loyalty to this country in their efforts to bash President Trump for anything he does, even taking out murderous terrorists. Still complaining Friday about the U.S. drone strike which killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, the co-hosts of The View spent time insulting Trump while touting Democrats John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi as the kinds of leaders America needs making foreign policy decisions.
Prior to Iran's missile attacks on U.S. bases inside Iraq, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said, “We are not seeking war with Iran, but we are prepared to finish one.” Esper said the U.S. prefers a “diplomatic” solution to the escalation of tensions in the region. Yes, that would be ideal, but a diplomatic solution would require Iran to reverse course, no longer fund and practice terrorism, stop developing a nuclear weapon and cease its repeated threats to destroy Israel.
Following the death of Iranian Gen. Qasem Soleimani, it’s clear that many liberal analysts, commentators, contributors, journalists, and pundits would have fallback positions at Iran’s English-language, state-run Press TV if any would lose their jobs. For MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, he would have quite the resume. According to a NewsBusters count between Monday and Thursday evenings, he adopted the Iranian-preferred word of “assassin” and its variations 60 times while discussing the Soleimani strike.
After CNN rolls a clip of Dem Rep. Jackie Speier saying the airliner shoot-down is "yet another example of collateral damage from the actions that have been taken by in a provocative way by the President of the United States," Alisyn Camerota expresses support for Speier's statement, saying, I think it’s fair to say this would not have happened if there were not tensions between the US and Iran."
In a Thursday night article titled “An Iranian general dies in a U.S. attack, and Canada suffers,” the Associated Press made it abundantly clear who they blamed for the deaths of 176 people in the skies over Tehran. (Hint, it wasn’t the country that shot two surface-to-air missiles at a passenger jet.)
Despite the fact Iran had killed a U.S. contractor in Iraq, staged an assault on the U.S. Embassy there, and launched a missile attack on U.S. forces, House Democrats were so overcome with their hatred for President Trump that they voted Thursday to restrict his powers to react to hostilities from the regime. Of course, that meant the liberal media had something else to rally behind seeing as their buddies in Iran had just killed nearly 176 innocent people by blowing a passenger jet out the sky.
A former top CIA official had to explain to CBS just why it’s unwise to believe Iranian propaganda claiming that 80 members of the U.S. military were killed during the country's air strike. Co-host Gayle King on Wednesday seemed to equate equally the Iranian propaganda outfit and western reporting, siting “conflicting information.”
On Monday evening CNN's Brian Stelter tweeted that is patriotic to question and be skeptical of leaders who may stumble into a war. Apparently such sentiment only goes one way at CNN as CNN's Fred Pleitgen was in Tehran for a softball interview on Tuesday with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif that ended up being just another one of the network's many anti-Trump segments.
The media has revealed just how far they will go in distrusting this administration, siding with foreign governments and terrorists over our own military. Just as ABC News’ journalists did Wednesday evening, CNN journalists on Thursday morning suggested they trusted their own reporting more than they did U.S. military intelligence, by expressing skepticism that Iran intended to kill Americans with their missile strikes.
During interviews with all three broadcast networks on Wednesday and Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence was confronted with hostile interrogations over the U.S. killing of Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani. In sharp contrast, NBC, ABC, and CBS have all treated Iran’s Foreign Minister and chief propagandist Mohammad Zarif to softball exchanges in which his anti-American pronouncements have largely gone unchallenged.
As the current situation between the U.S. and Iran continues to unfold, the people at the New York Times are showing which side they support in an unusual way. Most obituaries just give factual information about the person who passed away, but the liberal newspaper instead injected politics into the story.
Reacting to Lindsey Graham's praise of President Trump's speech about Iran, and Marco Rubio's praise of the briefing given to senators about the situation, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski suggests that Trump is blackmailing them.
