The mainstream media routinely express disgust at conservative outlets and the bias they represent, presenting themselves as the neutral arbiters of what Americans must read and hear.
So, in case it had occurred to you that the MSM might have a point, have a look at these headlines about President Trump’s decision to exit the Paris climate accord.
This one by USA Today is the worst of the lot. Not the slightest effort to hide a liberal bias.
Note below the Paper of Record laments that “nearly all nations” signed the accord — i.e so how could we be so stupid? — and American is “history’s top polluter” but is leaving anyway.
Trump leaves an “historic” pact, the Washington Post informs us. You can practically see the tears over us messing up such a thing. He “alarms” foreign leaders. Nothing about him maybe pleasing Pittsburgh.
And then CNN. The world “outcry swells” the nation’s formerly leading cable news network proclaims. The consistently egregious Fareed Zakaria falls into hysteria and claims that the U.S. has ceded its claim to world leadership.
And so, this is why you have a conservative press. Because WE NEED IT.
