Not exactly man bites dog stuff, but it's a bit of a slow news day for Russia Hoax obsessives. Barr gave an interview to Katie Pavlich--AG Barr Rips National Media as a ‘Collection of Liars’ Over Riot Coverage:
"They're basically a collection of liars. Most of the mainstream media. They're a collection of liars and they know exactly what they're doing. A perfect example of that were the riots. Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened group of street fighting radicals and they kept on excluding from their coverage all the video of this and reporting otherwise and they were doing that for partisan reasons, and they were lying to the American people. It wasn't until they were caught red-handed after essentially weeks of this lie that they even started feeling less timid," Barr said on the flight back to Washington Friday afternoon.
"The press has dropped, in my view - and I'm talking about the national mainstream media - has dropped any pretense of professional objectivity and are political actors, highly partisan who try to shape what they're reporting to achieve a political purpose and support a political narrative that has nothing to do with the truth. They're very mendacious about it," he continued. "It's very destructive to our Republic; it's very destructive to the Democratic system to have that, especially being so monolithic. It's contributing to a lot of the intensity and partisanship."
"I think there are a handful of reporters in the mainstream media that still have journalistic integrity, and there are some, but the overwhelming majority don't have it anymore," Barr said. "The people who do cover the Department do understand some of the issues. But, on the other hand, some of them have essentially adopted the same methods and ploys as what I refer to more generally as the national media and that is they're not because, probably somewhat because, of their own orientation and but also what their editors say, they're not really interested so much in what really happened but in pursuing a preformed narrative that suits some kind of ideological agenda. That's what it's all become."
￼According to Barr, the organizing behind the rioting in cities across the country is under investigation and federal law enforcement agencies are working to identify the individuals behind the chaos.
"People are pouring [sic] through all of the video trying to identify people to hold people accountable," Barr said, adding that the funding of the riots is also under investigation. "I think Antifa and Antifa like groups are at the center of it."
"Pouring" through the videos can't help their quality, but at least the feds are on the case.
I did not expect Barr to sound like me at the dinner table. Wow.ReplyDelete
He shouldn't sugar-coat it like that. Call a spade a spade Bill.ReplyDelete
Pouring through all those videos would be really bouring, don't you think? :)ReplyDelete
Yes, all those layer and layers of fact-checkers and editors must be boured out of their gourds.Delete
Barr would never do an interview like this without good reason. My guess is that he is running interference for DOJ because Trump is getting antsy about the delay in the RussiaHoax investigation. Barr is doing what he can to push back against the insanity running rampant across the nation and he too is getting fed up with the ever-escalating scorched Earth campaign by the Deep State.ReplyDelete
I agree he had a reason.Delete
Don't forget the lying rinos that helped in this rush to russian judgment. mittens, McConnell, Graham, Burr, Rubio etc, etc, etc.ReplyDelete
Taking Barr's phrase as a departure point.
Pretty good. I dunno if I'm missing something, but I don't seem to have noticed the usual media outrage at Barr. Could it be that they don't want to debate that?Delete
Can't spin it into the narrative, so it is to be memory holed.Delete
Somewhat OT, but Barr will speakat my alma matter Hillsdale College on Wednesday evening at 8 PM ET. For those of you who don't know, Hillsdale is the last bastion of liberty in our country. It refuses to accept federal funds for its students, and thus refuses to accede to federal control. Anyway, here's the link to Barr's speech. https://www.hillsdale.edu/educational-outreach/constitution-day-celebration/sept-2020/?utm_campaign=CDC2020&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=95296358&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-_CunDotSviwbAnUaCg2--PInzdF7h5lYYvPNpz8qdVILmEiGEsaJCNduLY0AOl_BW1VDMqwRgCzJvfY6qkm7WsMMIYjA&utm_content=95296358&utm_source=hs_emailReplyDelete
