Does anyone believe that the fake ABC and CNN hit pieces on Trump were the result of overzealous fairness? If it weren’t so outrageous, this would be funny . . .
On Brian Stelter’s CNN show this morning, during a discussion of the spate of MSM misreporting of stories in a way unfavorable to President Trump, guest David Frum actually said:
“The worst mistakes that press organizations have made in the coverage of Trump has precisely occurred in their effort, their overzealous effort, to be fair to the President.”
Frum’s assertion that the MSM is “overzealous” in being fair to Trump has to be the most brazenly false statement about the media in a long time.
DAVID FRUM: You asked the question, Brian, given these mistakes, why should people trust the media? I’d say, the mistakes are precisely the reason that people should trust the media.
The press, the worst mistakes, again, when we’re talking about the press we exclude Fox, when we talk about press organizations that have an interest in finding truth. Excluding Fox, the worst mistakes that press organizations have made in the coverage of Trump has precisely occured in their effort, their overzealous effort, to be fair to the President.
