When the cool kids sneer at you, do you wear it like a badge of honor? Mike Lindell should. He’s the “MyPillow Guy,” the TV-friendly entrepreneur and enthusiastic Trump supporter. He’s also a former drug addict who got himself clean and turned into an outspoken evangelical Christian.
The Washington Post is perennially sneering at conservatives, as you can see from this Friday story: "Greetings from Mike Pence’s parallel universe. It’s Constitution Day at the Heritage Foundation." Whose parallel universe? Post political writer Ben Terris expects that everyone lives in the world of liberal impressions that The Washington Post is creating.
The front page of Saturday’s Washington Post told the tale about the war on Fox News. It wasn’t about accusers getting a payout. It was about damaging the network by taking down its top star. The Post headline was “’'Mission was to bring down Bill O’Reilly’.”
You know The Washington Post is a liberal newspaper when the big splashy figure on the front of Friday’s Style section is…Keith Olbermann. The man whose career has now “evolved” into ranting in obscurity for a fashion magazine? Yes.
Political reporter Ben Terris is clearly not thrilled with this assignment. He will clearly wound Keith’s massive ego by proclaiming late in the piece “Some of Olbermann’s commentaries are infused with a frenetic energy akin to the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.”
Power-sniffing Washington Post political reporter Ben Terris interviewed the Morning Joe crew for a Wednesday front-pager in the Style section on their cozy relationship with the president-elect. Terris highlighted criticism from the left (and kooky left), not the right, about their closeness to Trump. It’s fun to see Scarborough attack Andrea Mitchell and Chris Matthews for having close Democratic friends. But the most mysterious quote was Mika Brzezinski denying her team are journalists.
Here’s another proof that The Washington Post is a Democratic rag. On July 22, It editorialized with the highest dudgeon that Donald Trump was “uniquely unqualified – even a “peril” to democracy -- because he was “mounting a campaign of snarl and sneer, not substance....Mr. Trump’s politics of denigration and division could strain the bonds that have held a diverse nation together.”
On September 15, Ben Terris of the Post hopped in a car with snarling, sneering Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for a Style section profile exploring his “sentimental journey” on his way to retirement. They left out Reid’s latest video describing Trump as a “spoiled brat” and a “human leech who will bleed the country.”
Two days after Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski allegedly forcefully grabbed the arm of Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC finally noticed this disturbing incident just as a Trump protester was sucker punched at a rally on Wednesday night. All told, the three network evening newscasts combined for two minutes and 18 seconds reporting on how Fields tweeted a photo of bruises on her arm from Lewandowski and statements from the Trump campaign that vehemently denied the incident ever happened.
Washington Post political reporter Ben Terris provided the latest puff piece to the Democrats on the top of Friday’s Style section – which inspired more puffery on CBS Friday morning. “COMEDIANS ARE FEELING THE BERN,” blasted the headline in all caps. “Why has the most humorless presidential candidate garnered mad support from the normally apathetic stand-up scene?”
Guess what? The “cool kids” are loving the scrappy socialist.
Liberal Washington Post political reporter Ben Terris on Thursday offered a sneering article on Rick Perry, deriding the presidential candidate as a "zombie" "specimen." The story mocked Texas's longest-serving governor for having trouble raising money: "Due to a relatively recent political experiment known as super PACs, Perry’s zombie campaign lurches forward."
The least likely congressional candidate to ever interest The Washington Post might be a Democrat thinking they can beat Steny Hoyer, the House minority whip from southern Maryland. This completely quixotic campaign can only be interesting if....the candidate’s a Navy SEAL who thinks he’s a woman.
On the front page of Style is a picture of Christopher “Kristin” Beck, hesitating in the shadows before ringing a doorbell in a suburban neighborhood asking for votes. The headline is “From Navy SEAL to congresswoman?”
On January 9, Washington Post political writer Ben Terris profiled conservative Sen. James Inhofe and described him as “the country’s most prominent climate-change denier.” A headline announced “Senate’s top climate-change denier is flying high.”
Twenty days later, Terris is shamelessly profiling a liberal senator as terrific presidential material. The headline was “Why Isn’t He Feeling A Draft? Ohio’s Sherrod Brown was Elizabeth Warren before Warren was a Democratic rock star. But don’t bet on him being progressives’ standard-bearer in 2016.” He tweeted approvingly that Ralph Nader agreed with him.
About a month ago, The Washington Post reported that kiddie-TV host Bill Nye “the Science Guy” and other leftists put out an open letter demanding the media use the word “climate denier” instead of “climate skeptic” to describe Sen. Jim Inhofe and the conservative side of the global-warming debate. Apparently, the letter worked.
Friday’s Washington Post carried a very biased article by Ben Terris on Sen. Jim Inhofe, “the country’s most prominent climate-change denier.” The Post even used the “denier” phrase in its local radio ads, passing along the shock that a “denier” is chairing an environmental committee.
