This is a rare moment of truth from a NY Times editor and columnist, Bari Weiss, who admitted on CNN that nobody in the media is covering the scandal of Omar and Tlaib’s trip to Israel, which was sponsored by a very anti-Semitic group:
Newsbusters transcribed her comments:
One of the huge stories this week was the fact that Benjamin Netanyahu decided to bar the entry of two Democratic members of Congress, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel. Based on Trump bullying him into that decision, he reversed course. Now, that’s a huge story, one that I wrote a column about.
But another huge story, one that has not been covered by any mainstream paper or network is the fact that their trip to Israel, or as they’re calling Palestine, was being sponsored by a group that literally published neo-Nazi blood libels and said that it supported female suicide bombers. You know, hailing them as heroes. That’s a scandal.
If someone like Steve King was going to Sweden or Norway and eating with neo-Nazi groups, that would be front page news. One of the questions I think we need to ask is: is the fact that Trump has lodged racist horrible attacks on these women, has that made them sort of untouchable for us to cover in an accurate way?
I think that’s one of the problems of this moment. That it’s very hard to cover, sort of, complicated characters and stories like them because the President, everything he touches becomes toxic.
What Weiss says is quite revealing, but I don’t agree with her last statement. It’s not a problem of “this moment.” Rather, it’s a problem that only exists because much of the national media is nothing more than a propaganda outlet for the Democratic Party. The MSM has been infested with a bunch of liberals who believe that their job is to push an agenda rather than report the actual news. And that agenda is defeating Trump and getting a Democrat, no matter how crazy, elected in his place.
The reason that “everything” Trump touches becomes toxic is because they hate him so much. That’s why they aren’t covering this huge scandal and are giving Omar and Tlaib a pass.
