Since the August 8 FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, outraged TV journalists on CNN and MSNBC have slammed former President Trump for storing once-classified documents at his private residence. Yet back in 2015, those same networks were maniacally defensive of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she was under investigation for storing highly sensitive material on a private server.

President Biden’s Thursday night speech was a big hit on the pro-Democrat TV networks. CNN, MSNBC, and NBC News Now all carried the event and heaped effusive praise on their favorite president’s rhetoric.

How did we get from a “manufactured scandal” produced by “the right wing media machine,” to “a real problem” and “not just a right-wing media story?” Stelter owes his audience an explanation of how his opinion on Hunter Biden’s laptop has flipped a full 180 degrees since 2020.

For years, journalists and experts alike have argued in favor of the definition which the Biden administration has just tried to undo: that at least two straight quarters of negative GDP growth means the country is in a recession.

The liberal media often question the legitimacy of the highest court in the land over rulings they dislike. But just a few years ago, they accused former President Trump of “assaulting institutions” when he would criticize courts for ruling against his policy initiatives.
