Fox News Is Part Of The Problem Why People Don’t Trust The News Media

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/abby-huntsman-rachel-maddow-media-problem

For decades conservatives have been victimized by anti conservative bias in the media. From college campuses, the news, to social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and search engines like Google and Bing, are all in the business of suppressing conservative opinion and thought. Only on Fox News, and outlets like Blaze TV, Breitbart, Right Wing News, World Net Daily, and American Thinker, can you find unbiased, objective truth.

Ever since President Trump was elected, the lame stream leftist media has done everything possible to destroy his good name and his presidency, simply because they hate him. No other president in human history has ever been treated as badly, not even that black guy, whose name escapes me at the moment. He may have been a radical, America hating, white hating, gun-grabbing, Marxist Muslim who wasn’t eligible to be president, but at least he was never treated as badly as Trump is, and that’s a fact, Jack.

It’s amusing that conservatives in the media live in their glass houses, while throwing stones at others. They criticize other media outlets and individuals as liberally biased when they are anything but, pretending that they themselves are not a part of that media, as if they are exempt from any criticism, as if they are the only sources of objectivity and truth.

On a recent episode of the View, they were discussing the alleged Ukraine scandal with Guest Rachel Maddow, when Abby Huntsman asked her if she might be part of the problem why some people may not believe that Trump is guilty in connection to the scandal.

There has been a crying wolf for so long. This is it, this is the smoking gun, he’s out, for two years now from Democrats, from some members of the media – that now you have people in this country that are like, ‘We don’t believe anything anymore.’ They’re shutting it off, they are not taking it as seriously as they should, and I ask you, do you think you’re part of that problem?”

Was the media guilty of exaggerated reporting regarding the alleged collusion between Trump and Russia? Certainly. I don’t dispute that. But even if Trump had colluded with Russia, right wing media would be defending him, just as they’re now defending him on his scandal with Ukraine.

Huntsman added that as someone who was also in the media, she shared some of the blame. Yes, she certainly does. As a serious journalist for Fox News, Huntsman – and pretty much every commentator at the network – was guilty of allowing conservative guests and contributors to spread falsehoods about Obama’s alleged hatred and war on law enforcement, and defending Trump when he failed to fully condemn the Charlottesville marchers. She had this to say during a segment on Fox And Friends:

“I knew when he didn’t call it for what it was – a lot of people, a lot of people thought he should, many members of the Republican party as well – I knew exactly the direction the media and the Democrats would take it, because it fits into the narrative that many of them had the whole time he’s been president, that he supports these types of groups, and that is problematic for society.”

Right wing media pundits are guilty of a lot more than the so called liberal media they love to condemn as biased and dishonest. According to Media Matters, Huntsman had her own problems when it came to honesty while employed at the network. From the moment the Benghazi consulate was attacked by Islamic militants, Fox News and the right wing echo chamber – with no evidence – cried wolf. They took an unfortunate tragedy and spun it into a national scandal bigger than Watergate. They accused Obama – who was running for reelection – and Hillary Clinton, of masterminding a massive coverup… for what, exactly, they never specified. During the numerous investigations, Fox News and it’s echo chamber were obsessed with finding a smoking gun, evidence that Obama and Clinton allowed four Americans to die in Benghazi, and then deliberately covered it up. If there ever was an actual witch Hunt to ruin a sitting president, Benghazi was it.

If I had been in Maddow’s position, I would have pushed back and asked Huntsman why Fox News is still the number one watched, so called news network? Why it is still considered a credible source of news after years of pushing the discredited Benghazi hoax and the conspiracy theories surrounding it, despite the numerous Republican led investigations that failed to find a smoking gun to tie around Obama and Clinton’s necks? Fox News has continued to remain a credible source of news in the minds of it’s viewers. Did their viewers tune out by the thousands after being proven wrong over their Benghazi obsession? Certainly not. If anything, they became more popular. This is the serious ‘news’ channel that brought us such hard hitting news subjects like Birtherism, Muslim no go zones throughout Europe, death panels in Obama care, Tan Suite Gate, the War On Christmas, and of course, Benghazi. One would think that after years of so much fake news, they would admit to the con they’re running, but instead often feel the need to get on their lofty perches to lecture MSNBC, CNN, and other so called liberal news outlets about what constitutes objective and honest reporting.

By Huntsman’s own standards and that of the entire right wing echo chamber, they are a large part of the problem for distrust in the news media.

Meghan McCain Heckled By Pervert On The View

https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-view-goes-off-the-rails-on-racist-republicans-im-john-mccains-daughter

Drama Queen , Meghan McCain at The View.

Meghan McCain joined The View in September 2017. She was a former Fox News contributor , and a co host of Outnumbered. She was also an MSNBC contributor , and in 2009 was a brief contributor for the online news source , The Daily Beast.

Since joining The View , she has had several embarrassing disagreements bordering on meltdowns with her co hosts , such as the time she defended the president for pulling out of the Iran Deal , in which she also accused certain co hosts of supporting terrorism.

Other disagreements bordering on meltdowns , include , insisting that the GOP is not racist ; that law abiding gun owners are unfairly demonized after mass shootings ( during a discussion on the Tree Of Life shooting ) , and telling guest Tara Setmayer , ‘Please stop saying that , please stop saying that ‘, when she called Trump’s base a cult for believing everything he says.

She has a reputation as an airhead among both liberals and some conservatives. Wing nut conservatives , such as Laura Ingraham , with whom she’s had an on again off again feud , view her as a fake Republican because she’s not extreme enough for their liking , as she supports same sex marriage , and birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Her books include , Dirty Sexy Politics , America , You Sexy Bitch : A Love Letter To America ( co written with Ian Black ) , Rush Limbaugh Can Kiss My Big Fat Ass , Katie Pavlich : An Airhead Wrapped In A Bimbo , Laura Ingraham : Hitler Reincarnated , and soon to be published , Don’t Call Me An Airhead : Katie Pavlich Is The Real Airhead.

On a recent episode of The View , Meghan and co host Sunny Hostin got into a disagreement over Trump’s border wall , when things quickly took an odd turn. It started out as a peaceful enough discussion , but then quickly derailed off into Crazy Town.

They started off the show talking about Trump’s obsession with The Wall , and whether it was racist or not to support it. Sunny wanted to know why Republicans don’t have the guts to call out his racism over his obsession with border security.

“But , Sunny ,” Abby Huntsman said , “according to the polls , forty two percent of the country support the president’s wall. Does that make them all racist?”

“It depends on how you look at it ,” Sunny answered. “It’s not necessarily racist or bigoted to want adequate border security. We have it now , and we had it when Obama was president. This ridiculous notion that he was soft on border security , that he was allowing illegal immigrants to waltz across the southern border unchecked and unvetted , I think that’s kind of a racist attitude in itself. We have a security system that’s not perfect , but it works , and it takes time to properly process these people. But , what is racist , is when you have a network like Fox News , including the president of the United States , that constantly fear mongers and spreads lies about them , that they’re criminals and terrorists. That is racist.”

Meghan stood up. ‘Oh … my … God ,” she said. “I can’t believe it. Are you calling me a racist?”

“Relax , Meghan , nobody is calling you a -” Whoopie tried to say , but Meghan cut her off.

“Am I a racist because I support strong border security?”

“Meghan , calm down.”

“Is everyone who supports Trump’s border wall , racist? I don’t think so! I believe I can speak for Abby also , when I say that this makes me very uncomfortable.”

“Meghan , please shut up ,” Whoopie said.

“I will not shut up. I am not a racist! I am John McCain’s daughter!” She said , clenching her teeth and stomping a foot.

Whoopie , who had been sitting next to Meghan , stood up and placed a hand on her shoulder to calm her down. “Right now you’re acting like a God damn drama queen , so shut the f**k up.”

There was a smattering of nervous laughter from the audience.

“Please don’t touch me!”

“Oh … my … God , ‘ Joy muttered , shaking her head.

That was crazy enough , since Meghan has always had the reputation of being not just an egghead , but a bit of a drama queen. But what happened next , was even crazier. And it didn’t come from Meghan or any of the other hosts. It came from someone in the audience.

“I am not a drama queen ,” Meghan insisted.

We know ,” Whoopie said. “You’re John McCain’s daughter. Now , please -“

“Cat fight!” someone yelled from the audience. Again , there was nervous laughter. Stunned , everyone turned toward the audience.

“What the f**k?” Meghan said. Shielding her eyes from the studio lights , she looked out into the audience. “Who said that?”

After a moment of awkward silence , in which it was clear the perp was not about reveal himself , she said , “It was not a cat fight. It was just a simple misunderstanding.”

“Take it off!”

“Listen , creep! This is not a strip club. We’re having an important political discussion here. If you want to see a cat fight , or a lap dance , go visit the strip club on the corner.”

Whether it had been a discussion was debatable. It had really been more of a Meghan Meltdown , an all too common occurrence at The View.

“Take it off!” the creep yelled again , and there was more nervous laughter from the audience.

“Alright , that’s it , a**hole!” Meghan yelled back. “No one is taking their clothes off for your perverted pleasure , you creep , especially me!”

“Take it off!”

Frustrated , Meghan turn toward her co hosts and said , “Is anyone going to do anything about this pervert?” But none of them were able to answer her at the moment. They were all too busy laughing hysterically.

Meghan was crushed. These were friends of hers , who had never laughed at her before , no matter how ridiculous she was behaving.

She couldn’t take the humiliation. Not only were they laughing at her. The View had millions of viewers. Many of them were probably laughing at her as well.

She burst out crying and ran back stage.

After Meghan ran crying back stage , security confronted the audience and quickly flushed out the heckler. He was the perfect example of someone who was destined to live out his early adulthood without getting laid : thick , greasy hair , an over abundance of acne , and a set of discolored buck teeth that any respectable rodent would envy. They chased him around the studio , while someone thought it might be amusing to play Yakety Sax over the studio system PA , the Benny Hill theme song , where the entire cast is chasing him around while the credits roll. The audience participated in the fun , providing the laugh track to the wackiness of the situation. The kid managed to avoid the guards for at least twenty minutes , repeatedly taunting them to catch him , but at last he began to tire , and they were able to get their hands on him and haul him out of the studio , all the while encouraging Meghan McCain to do a strip tease.

After the episode aired , Whoopie told news sources that they had not been laughing at Meghan so much as they had been laughing at the absurdity of the situation.
