Washington Post media columnist, Margaret Sullivan, launched a tirade against the media live broadcasting President Trump's coronavirus briefings in "The media must stop live-broadcasting Trump’s dangerous, destructive coronavirus briefings."
President Trump's acquittal in the Senate is driving some of the media's worst Trump haters into a tizzy. The media's bias has been intense -- and yet the problem is apparently it's not intense enough. Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan is bizarrely urging the media to drop its "neutrality at all costs" model and go all out in opposition to Trump.
Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan routinely decries complaints of anti-Trump media bias by calling liberal journalists the "reality-based press." Now she's suddenly feeling the pain of media bias....against a socialist from Vermont. In an article posted on Wednesday, Margaret Sullivan declared: "The media keep falling in love — with anybody but Bernie Sanders."
Two weeks ago, we reported that looking at one day of The Washington Post's main Twitter page during an impeachment-hearing day in the House underlined the Post's impeachment obsession: Seventy of their 183 tweets and retweets (38 percent) were focused on impeachment. They promoted ten video tweets from the House attempt to remove Trump. But in the 24 hours of December 11, the IG hearing drew only nine tweets out of 142 tweets and retweets (six percent).
Is a new story from liberal outlet The Washington Post another instance of the pot calling the kettle black? Liberal Washington Post columnist Margaret Sullivan decried liberal billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s 2020 candidacy in a Nov. 25 article headlined “Mike Bloomberg just stabbed the journalistic heart of his news organization.”
CNN’s Brian Stelter devoted the entire opening segment of Reliable Sources to trashing Fox News and right-wing media. His guests all too happily joined in. The Washington Post’s Margaret Sullivan contrasted the right-wing media with the “reality-based” liberal media while multiple members of the panel accused Fox News and conservative media of pushing a narrative sympathetic to President Trump while turning a blind eye to the liberal agenda endorsed by the legacy media.
Imagine the concept of journalists asking probing questions of candidates. Some might find that idea to be off-limits. And some of those who do actually consider themselves to be journalists whose main mission is to protect Democrat candidates, namely Elizabeth Warren.
Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan has spent the Trump era insisting on how Donald Trump is at odds with what she calls the "reality-based press." But what about when the facts line up against candidates Margaret likes? Well, then facts are no longer fair. "Alternative facts" are produced.
Something rare happened in The Washington Post on Monday: there was a small hearing of the argument that the media is biased to the Left. Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan penned a column praising the Casper Project in Wyoming, where the Society of Professional Journalists tried to engage with media people and 36 Casper-area "citizen volunteers" who met on several occasions to "try for some mutual understanding." But they would NOT agree there's a liberal media bias.
CNN host and media janitor Brian Stelter set up a pretty easy mess for his cast of liberal media types to clean up during Sunday’s so-called “Reliable Sources”: whether or not the liberal media wanted to see President Trump impeached.
Journalists lecture that Trump never admits he’s wrong, but when you’re invested in the Trump-the-traitor conspiracy theory, you cannot admit they overreached. Take Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan, who refused to budge on the media’s partisan aggression. The online headline was "Serious journalists should be proud of — not bullied over — their Russia reporting."
The worst problem that liberal journalists have is that mental tic that journalism equals liberalism. Conservative journalism is by definition “disinformation.” Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan perfectly exemplified this tic on Friday calling Fox News a disease – an “American plague.”
