The Washington Post defended an MSNBC host who suggested on air that President Donald J. Trump’s Press Secretary should have her neck wrung.
“Nobody advocated for Sanders being choked,” wrote Aaron Blake in a fact check piece of Sarah Huckabee Sander’s claims from this week. “MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace (whose show I have appeared on, full disclosure) didn’t call for choking Sanders, but instead asked a reporter if she ever wanted to ‘wring’ Sanders’s neck out of frustration.”
Just to make the facts are straight, according to the Post it is perfectly fine to suggest that Sanders’ neck be rung, just as long there is no directive issued to actually wring her neck.
“How do you resist the temptation to run up and wring her neck?” asked Nicolle Wallace, MSNBC’s token GOP establishment host and former communications staffer for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), asked a panel.
In Washington Post world, this rhetoric is perfectly normal and befitting of a cable news anchor.
Blake also found the claim by Sanders that has-been Washington Post columnist and #NeverTrump lunatic Jennifer Rubin called for her “lifelong harassment” to be untrue.
“Rubin said nothing directly about people “harassing” Sanders, although she did say being ‘uncomfortable’ should be a ‘life sentence’ for Sanders, for ‘lying’ and ‘inciting’ people against the press,” Blake wrote.
According to Blake, harassment and discomfort are totally different. They are not alike in any way. To prove otherwise, Big League Politics used a dictionary:
Obfuscation and weasel-wording is the precise method used by the mainstream press on a daily basis to subtly push their leftist agenda and lies. Consequently, it is also the reason why Americans loathe the mainstream press.
Blake’s latest piece is a perfect example.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
