A Washington Post opinion columnist demanded that the major news networks cease live broadcasts of President Donald Trump’s daily coronavirus briefings, harping over supposed misinformation the President is providing in his updates for the people.
Margaret Sullivan argued for the shutdown of coronavirus briefings in an op-ed published Saturday. Her moralistic call to silence the rightful President of the United States is locked behind a paywall, as is all Washington Post content- despite the legacy media outlet being owned by one of the world’s richest men, Jeff Bezos.
“The cable networks and other news organizations that are taking the president’s briefings as live feeds should stop doing so.”
American Presidents have always sought to communicate with the general public in times of strife and crisis. Imagine if a partisan hack tried to get Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s fireside chats off the air of the radio during World War II. Or if Confederate sympathizers tried to block the publication of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address in major newspapers.
The President’s approval ratings are growing over the handling of the Chinese coronavirus epidemic. Perhaps mainstream media operatives such as Sullivan realize they need a handicap to control the narrative. She openly admitted that the media is losing control of the narrative, which shouldn’t be a surprise as they devote more attention to the President’s terminology of ‘Chinese coronavirus’ than they do to actual efforts to contain and defeat the disease:
“Business as usual simply doesn’t cut it. Minor accommodations, like fact-checking the president’s statements afterward, don’t go nearly far enough to counter the serious damage this man is doing to the public’s well-being.”
It’s a symbol of the mainstream media’s contempt for the people that they don’t believe they’re worthy of hearing directly from their leaders overseeing policy to deter the spread of the epidemic. They need a sanitized filter of partisan media operatives to provide them a curated, slanted picture of events.
CRINGE: CNN State Media Opines of “Joe Biden’s Arms Embracing America”
CNN daytime host David Chalian spoke of Joe Biden in worshipful terms in a Tuesday segment, claiming that a display of lights intended to memorialize COVID casualties represented the 78-year old President-elect embracing the United States in his arms.
Chalian claimed that President Trump was disgraced, ignoring the fact that polls with a track record of accuracy in the 2020 election reveal the outgoing President’s approval rating is over 50%.
“Those lights that are just shooting out from the Lincoln Memorial… It’s almost like extensions of Joe Biden’s arms embracing America. It’s a moment where the new President came to town and convened the country in this moment of remembrance, outstretching his arms.”
Is this the incoming President, or Chalian’s father? North Korean state propaganda would be jealous.
Joe Biden has opted for the light display in the absence of an inauguration crowd, with the incoming President eschewing a traditional inauguration on account of coronavirus concerns. It’s expected that Biden will speak of ‘unity’ in his Wednesday address, but such a goal is more easily attained through action than through words.
CNN is poised to take on the role of a state propaganda outlet, carrying water for the neoliberal establishment and the globalist elite. Figures within the mainstream media organization expect its ratings and audience to crumble and decline, no longer possessing a captivated liberal audience eager for content targeting President Trump with predictable hitpieces.
