NBC Forced to Eat Crow After Bashing Trump for Not Visiting Troops

Published

on

After berating the President on Christmas Day for not visiting the troops during “Christmastime,” NBC was forced to eat crow Wednesday when President Donald J. Trump made a surprise visit to Iraq.

“On Christmas Day, President Donald Trump took part in a long-running practice of presidents who called troops stationed around the country and the world,” NBC said in a Tuesday article. “But he broke from a recent tradition of actually visiting troops and wounded warriors. He did so in 2017, when he visited wounded troops at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Dec. 21.”

“By staying home on Tuesday, Trump became the first president since 2002 who didn’t visit military personnel around Christmastime,” the left wing charlatans continued.

On Wednesday, NBC watched in horror as their feigned outrage once again fell flat. Trump landed at Al-Asad Air Base, which is located just west of Baghdad in early afternoon, crushing the spirit of the formerly-respected news titan.

The “news outlet” still could not avoiding bashing the 45th President, though.

“The unannounced trip comes at a time of change in the region following the president’s announcement earlier this month that he will withdraw American troops from Syria — a heavily criticized move that prompted the resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis,” it wrote in its Wednesday piece.

The fact that Trump had not visited the troops was widely shared on social media on Christmas day. The political left and its media propagandists, to be sure, do not give a hoot about the troops. Soldiers are simply political props for them, evidenced by their 180 degree reversal on foreign interventionism when Trump decided to withdraw the 7,000 troops from the endless war in Afghanistan and 2,000 more from Syria.

NBC issued an editor’s note from its Tuesday article criticizing the President, which is still live.

“On Wednesday, a day after this article was published, President Trump made a surprise visit to Iraq to greet U.S. troops. It was his first presidential visit to a combat zone,” the note said.

The Intercept Whines about Lack of Donations Blaming Trump, After Censoring Founder Glenn Greenwald

This sell-out fake news outlet is suffering market repercussions.

Published

on

A fundraising appeal from The Intercept contains complaints that donations have dried up in recent months, blaming former President Donald Trump’s attacks on the fake news for their blog’s lack of viability in the marketplace.

“Since Donald Trump left office on January 20, donations to The Intercept have gone down sharply,” the fundraising appeal states. “After years of steady growth, last month brought fewer new members than we’ve seen in more than two years.”

They note that progressive publications throughout the world are hurting without having Trump in the White House allowing them to publish absurd nonsense to their captive audiences.

“While Trump railed against journalists as ‘the enemy of the people,’ grassroots outrage over Trump’s corruption, racism, and incompetence fueled a spike in ratings,” the fundraising letter states, lamenting the end of the lucrative “Trump bump.”

The Intercept claims that the additional funding has allowed the outlet to be “able to take on more and more ambitious and hard-hitting investigative reporting.” However, anyone who is familiar with how the blog split with their founder Glenn Greenwald understands that this notion is laughably false.

Big League Politics has reported on how Greenwald quit The Intercept after the publication refused to allow him to scrutinize the record of President-imposed Joe Biden in the lead-up to last year’s farce of an election:

Left-wing journalist Glenn Greenwald announced on Thursday that he will depart from The Intercept, the publication he co-founded to publish news outside of the fake news media-industrial complex, because the organization has transformed into everything they were founded to oppose.

Greenwald published the rationale behind his departure on Substack, explaining how his writing critical to Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden was censored by the outlet.

“The final, precipitating cause is that The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New-York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression,” he said.

“The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony, raised critical questions about Biden’s conduct. Not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet I co-founded, these Intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right to publish this article with any other publication,” Greenwald added.

Greenwald explained that he could not stay with The Intercept since they had violated journalistic ethics to shill for Biden.

“As of now, I will be publishing my journalism here on Substack, where numerous other journalists, including my good friend, the great intrepid reporter Matt Taibbi, have come in order to practice journalism free of the increasingly repressive climate that is engulfing national mainstream media outlets across the country,” Greenwald wrote.

“This was not an easy choice: I am voluntarily sacrificing the support of a large institution and guaranteed salary in exchange for nothing other than a belief that there are enough people who believe in the virtues of independent journalism and the need for free discourse who will be willing to support my work by subscribing,” he added.

No organization deserves to go bankrupt more than The Intercept, but unfortunately their billionaire backers, including Ebay founder Pierre Omidyar, will likely bail them out and keep them afloat despite lack of interest.
