WTF MSM!? Continuing to dig a North Korean propaganda hole

One of these things is not like the other ...

Budget bias … Make no mistake, over the past two weeks, Democrats and Republicans have joined in on – as LevinTV host Mark Levin termed it – “spending like drunken Marxists.” There is nothing conservative about this latest GOP cave. That being said, watch the mainstream media spin the latest budget proposals versus how they reported on Obama budgets.

“Fox & Friends” went all the way back to 2015 and 2016 to show the stark difference in the way the Associated Press tweeted out news of the respective budgets. For Trump it was a “spending plan that features soaring deficits.” For Obama’s similar-sized spending plans, the AP claimed Obama was “pledging help for the middle class” and sent a plan “to Congress to combat terror threats, global warming.” That’s how bias happens in 280 characters or less.

This is a real column … Self-described “journalist” Jill Filipovic does not like the administration’s outside-the-box proposal to reform how the nation feeds the poor. The administration has proposed an “American Harvest Box” that would send food directly to SNAP recipients. There are real savings for the government through economies of scale of such a program. But Filipovic doesn’t see it that way. To her it is a big nanny-state program that forces food choices on people against their will. She closes by saying that Donald Trump eats ice cream every night, so how can he relate? Memo to Filipovic: Trump pays for his ice cream. As long as the rest of us are paying for SNAP, why not try to make that effort as economical as possible?

Trying to prove the Dossier … BuzzFeed News was the first outlet to publish the Steele dossier alleging collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia. The publication is facing a lawsuit from a Russian for libel and has a former FBI official leading an investigation trying to prove what is in the document. But that’s not all; BuzzFeed is also suing the Democratic National Committee to gain information on the hack of its email servers in order to prove Russians were at fault. The DNC has been reluctant to share that information even with law enforcement.

If successful, will this lawsuit help to vindicate BuzzFeed, or will it show that Russians weren’t actually behind the DNC hack? The latter would destroy a nearly two-year-old narrative the Left has used against President Donald Trump.
