Democrats, leftists and extreme left domestic terrorists are up in arms over something an actor/comedian said on an entertainment program over the weekend. It must be really true, because the left doesn’t play defense unless they’ve been caught or called out on their blatant hypocrisy and outright lies.

Russell Brand was a guest on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” along with MSNBC talking head John Heilemann, and Brand criticized Heilemann for saying Fox News is a propaganda outlet and biased all while working for a propaganda outlet himself in MSNBC.

“John, I’ve not known you long, but I love you already,” Brand began. “But I have to say that it’s disingenuous to claim that the biases that are exhibited on Fox News are any different from the biases exhibited on MSNBC.”

That’s dangerous talk for Brand to speak in such a way on an establishment-approved program like Bill Maher’s show. However, does that make him wrong?

However, for context, let’s take a look at the big players in media. There’s CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, CNBC and Fox Business. Besides Fox, which of the other outlets listed “lean right?”

The correct answer is zero. Sure, there’s outlets like Newsmax and OAN, but they aren’t typically lumped in with the elite in network and cable news. Heck, there’s some cable providers that won’t even provide a platform for those “right-leaning” outlets.

Brand took his take a step further and pointed out some other inconvenient truths.

It’s difficult to suggest that these corporations operate as anything other as mouthpieces for their affiliate owners in BlackRock and Vanguard. Unless we start to embrace — and also mate, just spiritually, if I may use that word in your great country — we have to take responsibility for our own perspectives. I’ve been on that MSNBC, mate. It was propagandist nutcrackery on there.

Brand then spoke about his experience on “Morning Joe” years ago, while also saying that Edward Snowden and Julian Assange have no one standing up for them despite their efforts to bring people actual truth.

Heilemann condescendingly pushed back against Brand’s takes in the most MSNBC way, essentially saying that Brand didn’t know what he was talking about while also wanting direct examples of what Brand was referring to.

However, you’re typically not allowed to ask lefties for specific examples or they lose their minds, because they usually don’t know what they’re talking about.

Basically, Brand summarized his comments by saying something that we all know to be true.

“The world needs a strong America,” Brand said.
