The Hired Liars of Liberal Media

Posted on | May 14, 2015 | 29 Comments

Andrew Breitbart used the phrase “Democrat-Media Complex” to describe the dishonest and hypocritical frauds who consider their partisan opinions to be synonymous with Truth and Virtue.

Based on my own experience — as an ex-Democrat who has been in the news business since 1986 — I long ago concluded that most journalists don’t notice liberal bias for the same reason fish don’t notice water. It’s everywhere, all around them, and it’s all they’ve ever known. Because liberalism is the default mindset of nearly everyone in the media, it becomes a sort of self-confirming prejudice, where those who don’t buy into the liberal mythology are systematically excluded from the industry and the few dissenters are ostracized within the industry.

ABC News Anchor George Stephanopoulos
Donated $50,000 to Clinton Foundation

ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos donated $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation in recent years, records show. The contribution is publicly available information, but the host had not previously disclosed it to ABC viewers, despite taking part in on-air discussions about the Clinton Foundation and its controversial relationship with foreign donors.
Stephanopoulos, a former aide to President Bill Clinton, confirmed the donation to POLITICO’s Dylan Byers after the Free Beacon contacted ABC News for comment. The host, who acknowledged making two donations of $25,000 between 2013 and 2014, issued a statement of apology for failing to disclose his contributions. . . .
Stephanopoulos’s recent coverage of the topic has been challenged by critics who question his objectivity as a longtime Clinton aide. The host’s April 26 interview with Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer, for example, elicited partisan reactions after Stephanopoulos repeatedly pressed the Schweizer to acknowledge the lack of a “smoking gun” among the allegations in his book. . . .
Conservative commentators, meanwhile, complained about Stephanopoulos’s “aggressively” dismissive questioning, and took issue with a former Clinton operative asking Schweizer, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush, about his “partisan interest” in writing Clinton Cash. . . .

The vile dishonesty of the Democrat-Media Complex is exceeded only by the vile hypocrisy of the Democrat-Media Complex.

    More disgusting pay-to-play.

    At least with a spoils system and openly partisan press you know that there’s money afoot and people are taking sides. The lack thereof in our current systems is a danger.

    Anyone that has been or currently is in the inner circle of the Clintons cannot be trusted. To work for those two and be close to them, one must be willing to do anything to hold on to power. The first and foremost being willing and able to lie with ease. The only one I have even a modicum of sympathy for is Chelsea, because she didn’t choose it. She was born into that sad situation. Although now that she’s an adult, she is responsible for her sins.

    …Sadly, nearly all the HILLARYbots have no knowledge of the long career of Stephanopoulos as a clinton gopher, stooge and suck-up —- and that “career” is why he was hired by clinton suck-up abc !

    BTW: The amount is now up to $75,000.00

    The “MYTH” of liberal media bias…

  • Sort-of-Mad Max

    How DARE you print this, this baseless canard tarring George Stephanopoulos with contributing $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation????

    It was actually $75,000, now that George thinks about it some more. Ooopsie!

    No surprise there. The rumors have been around for a while that both Little Georgie and his Wife play for other teams, IYKWIMAITYD.

    I blame the Republicans. They encourage this behavior by treating Democrat partisans like they’re objective journalists.

    Liberals lie but I’m being redundant

    When you pal around with the Clintons and their multi-billion dollar lifestyle, an extra $25,000 is chump change

  • MrPaulRevere

    The real culprit here is not Stephanopoulos per se, its the man who hired him and without doing a lot of research I believe his name is David Westin.

  • Daniel Freeman

    Stephanopoulos, a former aide to President Bill Clinton, confirmed the donation to POLITICO’s Dylan Byers after the Free Beacon contacted ABC News for comment.

    I’m not a journalist, but that looks to me like a massive breach of professional courtesy, giving the answer to someone else than the one who asked the question. He acted like a politician getting out ahead of a brewing scandal, which tells me how he sees himself.

  • Gunga

    Given his ideology, history with the Clintons, and his income…shouldn’t this properly be referred to as “tithing”? Just askin’…

    The esteemed Mr Steponallofus came to prominence precisely due to his connection with Bill Clinton’s campaign; everyone knew that the diminutive Democrat was a Clintonista, but ABC hired him anyway.

    Right, I am certain that Mr. Westin is shocked, shocked! that George might have some partisan leanings.

  • Steve Skubinna

    I’m sure George thought of it as “insurance.”

  • Rick Caird

    Stephanopoulos should never see another Republican on his show, period. If he wants to be a Democratic Party operative, let him only interview Democrats.
