I watched most of the “Alphabet” and cable networks cover the Democratic National Convention. I also kept abreast of the coverage from the print media and the popular online outlets. I wanted to see if what I wrote here would come to be. It did.
There is one thing you can be sure of this upcoming Presidential campaign: every reporter, every anchor, every staff member, every person in management and top-tier echelon executive at every news network except Fox News will vote for Hillary Clinton for President. Well, you might think, “it’s because the Republicans chose Trump as their candidate.” Hogwash.
Even if the old white guy, Socialist Bernie Sanders, became the Democratic nominee, and either Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Bobby Jindal or Carly Fiorina was the Republican nominee, (a set of choices that exemplifies diversity), everyone in the media that I previously mentioned would vote for the old white guy.
The idea that those in the “mainstream media” can be objective in their reporting even though, personally, they happen to be partisan, is ridiculous. There is not one news program today that practices objectivity. Every one of them is saturated with opinion and commentary, reflecting the partisan biases of those outlets. If you watched the supposedly “unbiased” news networks during the DNC coverage, this was crystal clear.
Jake Tapper of CNN is considered a reporter who is unblemished with bias. Then Wikileaks exposed even this poster boy of “objectivity.” He responded to the charges in expected fashion: he stated that the whole issue was one big nothing-burger.
Yeah, right. Got it.
Question: Who do you think he is going to vote for?
Still have any doubt in regards to my supposition? Take a look at the photo accompanying this piece and see the look of satisfaction on Wolf Blitzer’s face as he enjoys his Merlot in celebration of Hillary’s nomination.
