Most Americans are long since past the point where we expect anything less then rabid left wing bias out of most of the press, especially the DC press.
But Tuesday in DC two liberal reporters covering AG Barr’s appearance before the Dem-run House Judiciary Committee went past even those low standards. Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig couldn’t help herself and acted like a junior high school girl with a crush on any Democrat that comes along. Her Dem-smitten reporting reads like a fangirl reaction. Yamiche Alcindor, a person who may have the lowest professional reputation for a reporter in DC, and that’s saying something, also could not contain her girlish glee at the Dem-attempted lynching of Bill Barr. Though, it was a hanging that went awry, as Barr made the Democrats and those two reporters look like childish buffoons.
As Bill Barr tried to answer a question put by Dem Rep. Pramila Jaypal, D-WA. Jaypal interrupted him, “Excuse me, Mr. Barr, but this is my time. I control it,” the congresswoman blustered. Which was the drill of the day for the Dems. Make biased and false statements then don’t let Barr answer the charges. That was their scam de jour. How did Leonnig term this rude and petulant treatment of Barr? “She was taking no prisoners,” said the leftist shill on Twitter about Jaypal.
PBS NewsHour blowhard Yamiche Alcindor shared a quote from Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-LA, who criticized Barr for showing respect for the late congressman John Lewis. All Barr did was pay Lewis a compliment. But Richmond told him to keep his mouth shut, as he was not worthy to even speak Lewis’ name, “I would just suggest that actions speak louder than words and that you really should keep the name of the Honorable John Lewis out of the Department of Justice’s mouth,” Richmond told the attorney general.
Alcindor then salivated all over the quote and included a fire emoji in her tweet about it. An emoji, that’s the level of schoolyard maturity we’re dealing with here. Then Jackson brings old that tired old chestnut of “systemic racism,” alleging Barr doesn’t hire black lawyers at the Department of Justice. However, any review of DOJ staffing shows that to be a lie. But then, Jackson doesn’t care about facts, only about scoring points with his own political choir.
Conservatives found out and pounced, “In case there was any doubt that Yamiche is a partisan hack, she has helpfully eliminated that doubt for us,” said Washington Examiner reporter Jerry Dunleavy. “Carol is supposedly a reporter, but is actually a #LiberalHack,” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck said about Leonnig.
We could go on but slamming liberal reporters on their left wing bias is like giving out speeding tickets at the Indy 500. We can hope that Middle American swing voters see the sham for what it is and vote accordingly nouveau red in November. But the Democrats and the press will do all they can to make their lies into reality. Stay tuned…
