This clip from today’s “This Week” perfectly displays how the mainstream media subtly determines the political narratives to lean against Republicans and away from Democratic debacles. Martha Radditz started her question to Bill Kristol with the formulation of “tell me the weakness of Scott Walker’s campaign,” so that he would have to weaken the candidate.
Instead of doing that, Kristol pivots to nail the Democrats and show how extremist they are. The debacle of Martin O’Malley apologizing for pissing off Black activists just for saying “white lives matter” SHOULD be a huge headline but it isn’t. And when Kristol tries to talk about it, Radditz FREAKS out and makes sure to completely change the subject.
How much more obvious can you get?
