For years I have pointed to media bias on the right and on the left, calling for equal weights and measures. And, as a Trump voter, I was also a Trump critic, recognizing the danger of blind loyalty to any leader or party. I have even said that I preferred Hannity and Colmes to just Hannity, since it is important to have our views openly challenged.
It is in that spirit that I write this article, not as a blind supporter of the right but rather as someone calling for righteous and fair-minded reporting. That’s why I ask the question: is there no introspection among left-leaning journalists?
For four years, news outlets like CNN warned of us Donald Trump’s alleged declining mental faculties. We were told that a collapse was imminent. That psychiatrists had diagnosed him from a distance. That his presidency was about to implode.
Yet these same outlets have hardly uttered a word about Joe Biden’s apparent declining mental faculties, covering for him instead. (“Yes, I use notes for my job all the time, and I’m a lawyer. Why shouldn’t Biden use notes?” is the kind of thing I’ve been hearing.)
Is there no shame in being so obviously biased? Is there no recognition of the obvious lack of integrity?
Biden Stumbles. Remember When Trump Walked Slowly?
Or think of President Biden’s stumbling and falling as he climbed the stairs to Air Force One. What would the left-leaning media be saying if it was Trump who ended up falling on the stairs after two previous stumbles? How loudly would they be sounding the alarm? “Something is terribly wrong with President Trump!” (Actually, we know the answer to this, as leftwing news outlets endlessly replayed Trump having to steady himself while walking down a wet ramp after speaking at West Point.)
To repeat: I’m not denying that there is bias on the right and that each side has it own blind spots. As a conservative myself, I am constantly calling out my own camp. But I am challenging the idea that the major, left-leaning outlets are making an honest attempt to report the news.
I’m sure some individual journalists are making an honest attempt to be unbiased, but the loudest and most prominent voices certainly give no indication that they are. (Let’s try this question: Has CNN done a fair and honest job of reporting the scandals surrounding Gov. Andrew Cuomo, brother of CNN’s Chris Cuomo?)
I ask again: is there no sense of shame?
