NBC operative Chuck Todd apologized for a dishonest edit of a Bill Barr interview the network presented on Sunday’s airing of Meet the Press, claiming that the program’s editors had only seen a briefer version of a clip that made Barr appear cavalier about the dismissal of process crime charges against Michael Flynn.
Meet the Press had presented a snippet of Barr’s remarks during a CBS News interview in which he discussed how the dismissal of charges against Flynn would be remembered. The mainstream media program quoted Barr as saying that “history is written by the winners,” and that “it largely depends on who’s writing the history.”
Todd went on to paint Barr’s reasoning as political and corrupt, failing to recognize that the broader answer Barr gave to the question was far more legally reasoned. Barr had actually pointed out that “a fair history would say that it was a good decision because it upheld the rule of law. It helped, it upheld the standards of the Department of Justice, and it undid what was an injustice.”
Viewing Meet the Press’s presentation of the selective edit in comparison to a full viewing of Barr’s remarks on 60 Minutes shows just how dishonest and biased the network’s presentation of what he was saying is.

After a thorough public shaming, Todd was left with no choice but to admit the edit was dishonest. However, he claims that the Meet the Press editors responsible for clipping the quote didn’t see the broader answer, a dubious claim that raises questions about NBC’s journalistic work ethic at the very least. They couldn’t have put forth enough effort to watch Barr’s entire 15-second answer?

Another shameful episode in the storied tradition of fake news at NBC.
ET TU, TUCKER? Carlson Suggests Sidney Powell Has No Evidence of Vote Steal Coup on ‘Fox News’
Has he been compromised?
After the inspiring press conference by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell on Thursday about the Trump campaign’s steadfast dedication toward fighting voter fraud, supporters of President Trump expected Fox News host Tucker Carlson to support these efforts to save America.
Unfortunately, that is not what happened, as Carlson went off on Powell, making statements on his primetime program implying that she has no evidence for her claims.
“For more than a week, Powell has been all over conservative media with the following story: This election was stolen by a collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software in order to flip millions of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden,” Carlson said.
“The other day on television, Powell said of Trump, that when the fraud is finally uncovered, ‘I think we’ll find that he had at least 80 million votes.’ In other words, rigged software stole about seven million votes in this election,” he added.
At this point, Carlson’s commentary went off the rails, and he appeared to be carrying water for the color revolution coup that has culminated with the vote steal of the century.
“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week actually and listened the whole time at wrapped attention…But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests,” Carlson said.
“When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either,” he added.
Because Powell does not want to jeopardize any court case which the fate of the entire nation rests upon by blabbing to the media or any bureaucrats, Carlson is attacking her credibility.
“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another…We’re telling you this because it’s true,” he said.

Tucker Carlson says Trump campaign unwilling to provide evidence to back their claims

Big League Politics has reported on the left-ward shift of Fox News in recent months, which Carlson has up to this point pushed back against:
After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.
“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.
“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded…
He is responding to the shameful editorial decision by Cavuto and Fox News earlier in the day to censor McEnany in order to keep up the ruse that Joe Biden is the president-elect…
It is being speculated that Carlson may not be long for Fox News. However, he is a ratings giant who brings in the bacon to a network that is quickly growing reviled to its own core base.
Hopefully this is not a sign that Carlson has folded to the globalist establishment.
