After Attacking Fred Trump, Daily Beast Doesn’t Want You To Attack Pete Buttigieg’s Father

Once again, the corporate media attempts to change the rules of the game.

Published

A left wing conspiracy theory website that spent considerable time and effort smearing President Donald J. Trump’s father, Fred, is now upset at those criticizing the openly Marxist father of presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg.

“Evidently the father’s sins are to be passed down automatically to the offspring,” said The Daily Beast said in an opinion piece called “The Grotesque Red-Baiting of Mayor Pete Buttigieg.”

The author took offense to a news story published by The Washington Examiner, which noted that Buttigieg’s father, Joseph, was Marxist professor who “lauded the communist manifesto.” The attack on Joseph did not sit well with the op-ed writer over at The Daily Beast.

“Only in the time of Trumpist demagoguery, it seems, are self-proclaimed conservatives and Trump supporters ready and willing to go back in time to the most foolish and inane attacks from a sordid era in our nation’s past,” the author proclaimed.

Except the site did the exact same thing to Trump and his father in March of 2016. Not only is this trend tried and true, but The Daily Beast gladly took part in it during the good old days during the Trump campaign.

“Fred Trump had at one point been charged with seeking to overcharge veterans for subsidized housing,” the left wing rag reported. “He also had been the subject of front-page allegations that he had run up millions in overcharges in a government-funded project. He had denied it all and had not been criminally charged. Now he would show them all with Trump’s triumph by the sea.”

Those remarks about Trump’s father came in the context of a piece which accused Fred Trump of trying to “kill Coney Island,” published as a hit on Trump during his presidential campaign.

There was no hand-wringing about whether attacks on the father of a presidential candidate were in bounds from The Daily Beast back in those days. After all, they had a job to do – smear Trump into oblivion and derail his campaign.

Per usual for the leftist corporate media, they failed. Now they want to change the rules.

CNN Host Admits He Was “Snookered” By Avenatti After Felony Extortion Conviction

Mainstream media outlets like CNN were instrumental in making Avenatti a political celebrity.

Published

on

CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin admitted he felt “snookered” by disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti after the former political celebrity’s felony conviction for extortion on Friday night.

Toobin struck a penitent tone for his own network’s role in promoting the now-convicted felon. Avenatti was a regular on liberal mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC throughout 2018, frequently boasting of outlandish lawsuits that were set to finally take down President Trump.

In hindsight, after the “creepy porn lawyer’s” dramatic rise and fall, CNN is largely left with egg on their face for ever having taken him seriously. Toobin admitted this in the segment, showing more reflection than many of his mainstream media colleagues are inclined to undergo.

I feel kind of snookered, because I took him seriously.”

Avenatti has been convicted for a scheme to extort tens of millions of dollars from sporting company Nike. He faces up to decades in prison in upcoming sentencing proceedings, and is currently housed in solitary in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. He’s also set to face even more criminal charges in California, related to accusations he stole lawsuit rewards from his legal clients.

Avenatti’s rise and fall from cable news darling and pugnacious anti-Trump “fighter” to disgraced felon facing a possible life sentence is about as dramatic an arc one could expect to see a public figure undergo.

CNN and MSNBC now face some serious sole searching for their role in promoting the fraud, having taken his boisterous claims at face value for almost a year and even implicitly promoting his ridiculous presidential admiration. At least Toobin appears willing to admit his role in feeding the CPL’s ambitions.
