It is beginning to become difficult to tell where the media ends and the hysteria begins.
Yes, I realize that my opinion may come off as a bit compromised, coming from someone who blathers on about the American Dream day in and day out, but this is precisely my point. If I, in the land of the free, with the First Amendment at my back like a fortuitous tailwind on the tee pad, can’t launch an opinion past the ponds and bunkers of the mainstream media’s gatekeepers, then where has that freedom gone?
There is no doubt that the media is biased. This is undeniable, and the left has helped to prove this fact by wholeheartedly launching themselves into the business of “fact checking” with Snopes and others. If there wasn’t a problem, they wouldn’t be looking for a solution.
The issue is that that these “guardians” have no desire for objective truth. They have only a desire to protect those who protect them. The truth is scary, while massaging and molding the truth is profitable. Remember that…it will be extremely important in the coming months.
Now, as the last vestige of ostensibility fades away into the atmosphere, we have NBC literally begging Paul Ryan to remove Donald Trump from the office of the president.
NBC’s Chuck Todd said Wednesday that a “functional” Washington and Congress would start impeachment proceedings against President Trump now.
After falsely claiming Trump has been accused of “federal crime,” a noticeably excited Todd said on the Today Show:
The Judiciary Committee in the House of Representatives would begin to look to see if there’s enough evidence to start investigating and drawing up articles of impeachment, but this is not a functional Congress. This is a Congress controlled by Republicans. They would have to do this on their own president. But I have to tell you, I think there is going to be increased political heat, and you’re going to have a divided Republican party: those who are fearing Trump as a drag and those that know that his base is there till the end.
The far-left Todd then pressured House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) to save his legacy by launching impeachment proceedings against a president accused of nothing more than a possible FEC violation, saying, “I do think Paul Ryan needs to think long and hard about the future of the Republican Party. This is your last chance off this train, and it looks like Manafort and Cohen only have more to say, only may cooperate more. This could get worse.”
Sometimes I wonder if NBC could have picked a more appropriate mascot than the peacock; a showy bird whose peculiar looks serve no purpose other than to be notice and regaled by their peers. These ornamental feathers, however, do little to aid the bird functionally, with the peacock relying on the same mechanisms of flight as all of their avian colleagues.
