Mainstream media outlets have perfected the art of crafting fake news for their gullible and likely illiterate viewers. They also bristle with rage when conservatives label their biased news coverage as ‘fake’ because it is an unwelcome reminder that they have abandoned all journalistic integrity in the pursuit of a liberal, anti-Trump agenda.
Enter Chuck Todd: NBC anchor who looks like the kind of guy who hangs around playgrounds in a rusted-out, windowless van.
Chucky got busted this week for airing a deceptively-edited clip of Attorney General William Barr speaking about his handling of the Michael Flynn case.
In the clip from Sunday, Barr, responding to the Flynn case, said, “Well, history is written by the winner. So it largely depends on who’s writing the history.”
Barr continued speaking, but Chucky Todd and the Fake News Bunch didn’t include that part. Instead, Todd said he was struck “by the cynicism of the answer” and claimed that Barr was admitting that “yeah, this is a political job.”
The actual quote from Barr was as follows:
“Well, history is written by the winner. So it largely depends on who’s writing the history. But I think a fair history would say it was a good decision because it upheld the rule of law. It upheld the standards of the Department of Justice and it undid what was an injustice.”
Here both versions of the clip, which you may view at your leisure in the privacy of your own home:
Social media immediately called Chuck Todd and his colleagues out for their out-of-context shenanigans, prompting Todd to offer an apology for the deception by blaming CBS for the mixup.
“We did not edit that out. That was not our edit,” as he threw CBS under the bus by adding that the show did not include Barr’s additional remarks because “we only saw the shorter of two clips that CBS did air.”
Half-assed apology accepted, Chuck. Now get rid of the pedophile-inspired facial hair and you’re golden, Ponyboy.
