The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
If you expected the denizens of our fake national news media to accept the truth of the Mueller Report after its release today and move on to focusing on real news, well, think again. If you expected fake reporters who have gotten literally everything about this entire fiasco wrong for two solid years to do a mea culpa and promise to do better going forward, well, sorry.
If you expected the talking heads at CNN and MSNBC to engage in a little sober on-air introspection and begin the process of analyzing how it was that their repeated cocksure pronouncements that “Mueller has got the goods” and the always-handy “this is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump” could have been so utterly wrong for so damn long, well, not gonna happen.
Instead of any of those things that any honest, thoughtful person would do in such a situation, we got exactly what we should have all expected we would get from these despicable hacks, which was a full-blown on-air meltdown of epic proportions. The hysteria still-ongoing at CNN and MSNBC should be recorded for posterity and presented in every journalism school in America as the starkest examples of what does not amount to responsible, sober journalism in any way, shape or form.
The display is despicable. It is disgusting. It is demented. But hey, these talking heads are all Democrat activists, so what else would we expect?
Here are just a handful of out-takes from today’s TV news festivities, courtesy of the folks at NewsBusters.com:
CNN “legal analyst” Jeffrey Toobin: “it sure looks like” the President is guilty of “obstruction of justice to me” because “every obstruction of justice prosecution is based on an attempt that doesn’t succeed.” Holy crap. For the record, the Mueller Report makes no finding of obstruction of justice, exactly as AG William Barr has said.
CNN’s John King follows with advocacy for impeachment based on, well, nothing real.: “If people actually read this as opposed to put out their quick statements that they put out, so far what you’re seeing from most Republicans is this is great. The President’s innocent. Totally exonerated. It’s time to move on. Well, if the Republicans actually read this, you know, that’s up for the political community to decide if there’s a threshold for impeachment.”
ABC’s John Karl knows better than Robert Mueller as to what does and does not amount to “collusion”: Ultimately, the conclusion here in this special counsel is it did not rise to the level of a violation of the law.” Karl, who is not a lawyer, declared, “But there is significant contact here. You might even say collusion.” My goodness.
Back at CNN, fake Republican Anna Navarro throws a hissy fit.: “William Barr is a political hack in attorney general’s clothing. It’s simply disgusting.” Later on she tweeted that “Barr looks like a teddy bear. But he is complicit. He is duplicitous. He is disloyal to the Constitution. He is in dereliction of duty.” Somebody forgot to take her meds this morning.
Over at MSNBC, ex-CIA Director John Brennan is back to his old tricks.: “The amount of information that relates to collusion and obstruction activity is really quite extensive in this report.” *sigh*
Also at MSNBC, formerly-sane person Nicolle Wallace went off on a surreal rant in which she smeared Barr as “shill” and a “human shield” for the President, until she was reduced to repeatedly crying, “Why? Why?”
That’s just a few small snippets of the full-fledged implosion taking place on the nation’s TV screens today. Expect it to continue for a week or two, as CNN and MSNBC frantically try to keep their precious Russia Collusion narrative alive in order to prop up their flagging ratings.
But all bad things must come to an eventual end, and this is really the end of the Mueller Witch Hunt for all intents and purposes. The fake media won’t be able to keep this corpse of a false narrative reanimated for much longer before it is simply subsumed by accumulating current events.
If nothing else, today’s events proved conclusively that our fake news media is, in the words of the great Dennis Green, exactly who we thought they were:
That is all.
