This will have you rolling your eyes, over and over again. The bloviating out of Brian Stelter’s mouth and his panel has one clear purpose, to make Trump’s election look like fraud and a ‘national crisis’. You’ve got to see this!
It has become inescapably clear that rather than attempt to break free from the ideological echo chamber in which they exist, liberal journalists in the mainstream media are only doubling down on progressive propaganda — descending ever further into self-parody.
Enter Exhibit A: an astonishing exchange between CNN’s media analyst Brian Stelter and journalists Liz Wahl and Julia Ioffe that occurred on Sunday. In that one conversation, Wahl insisted Trump’s win undermined “our democracy,” Ioffe expressed bewilderment at the fact that the people no longer take the mainstream media’s word as sacrosanct, and Stelter implied that Trump’s impending presidency is a national emergency.
“That is the ultimate goal [of Russian ‘disinformation’], to undermine democracy, to undermine faith in our institutions, like the media,” Wahl told Stelter. “We have a president-elect now who has basically matched some of these key talking points in Russian propaganda to undermine our system.”
“I mean, here’s something I’ve been asking myself. Julia, we’re talking about a candidate who’s lost in a historic way in terms of the popular vote but clearly won in the Electoral College. Is this something of a national emergency? And are journalists afraid to say so because they’re going to sound partisan?” Stelter asked.
