Fox News Accuses Trump of ‘Weaponizing’ Press Passes in Statement Supporting CNN Lawsuit

Published

on

Further proof that the pre-Trump “Democrat vs. Republican” dichotomy was simply an illusion of choice, Fox News tipped its hand by supporting CNN’s lawsuit against the Trump White House for revoking the press credentials of activist, protestor and alleged reporter Jim Acosta.

“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” Jay Wallace, President of Fox News said in a statement according to AP reporter Zeke Miller.

“We intend to find an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court,” the statement continued. “Secret Service passes for Working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”

The “free press” argument is obviously bogus. If Trump is truly assailing the “free press” by revoking Acosta’s credentials, then everyone calling themselves a reporter must be granted White House press credentials. Acosta is a guest in the White House. The First Amendment does not grant him the right to be there.

This is the latest in Fox News, supposedly the alternative to far left cable news (which includes every other news network), siding with Democrats. Last week, they outraged their audience by calling the House of Representative in favor of Democrats before polls even closed on the West Coast on midterm election day.

Liberal Media Freaks Out as Tom Cotton Questions Coronavirus Origins

Mainstream media seems more concerned with Cotton’s questions than China’s censorship.

Published

on

Mainstream media entities are claiming Republican Senator Tom Cotton is trafficking in “conspiracy theories” for questioning the source of the coronavirus’ origins.

Cotton has questioned the official narrative stating that the deadly coronavirus outbreak originated in a wet food market in Wuhan, China. He’s suggested that it’s possible the disease originated in a Chinese government “superlab” a few miles away that conducts research in human infectious diseases.

Cotton has pointed out that the Chinese government is consistently declining offers of scientific and medical aid to combat the lethal epidemic, raising suspicions as to their transparency.

Such a suggestion is enough to label Cotton a “conspiracy theorist” in the eyes of outlets such as Slate and the New York Times. A headline from the Times called Cotton’s question a “fringe theory,” even though Cotton references epidemiologists who believe the virus didn’t originally enter human transmission at the food market. The Washington Post also ran a story Monday claiming that Cotton is trafficking in conspiracy theories.

It’s remarkable that nominally respectable media entities such as the New York Times are quick to dismiss entirely plausible theories of the coronavirus’s origins. If anything, an official narrative on the virus’s origins from the authoritarian communist government of China should be treated with inherent skepticism, especially considering that China is widely suspected of covering up the gravity of the situation and even arresting reporters who seek to document the epidemic and the government’s response.

Certainly it’s possible that the disease spread into humans from the consumption of animals such as bats, a prevailing theory for the virus’s origins. But the general public has no reason to entirely discount any plausible theory for the origins of the virus.
