Rep. Jim Jordan on Kavanaugh Impeachment Narrative: 'The Mainstream Press Lied to Us Again'

636 views

The media — what are they good for? If you take a look throughout American media history, the answer would typically be ‘absolutely nothing.’ Time after time, they betray our trust with story upon story of false information, misleading information and/or misreporting by omission. People in the media get so upset when others call them “the enemy of the people.” But, how can they claim to be anything but when they intentionally misinform the people who give them the ratings to garner the ad revenue that keeps them afloat?

Again, absolutely nothing.

Another person that isn’t afraid to call the media out for being the frauds that they continually prove themselves to be is Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).

Jordan joined Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” on Monday to talk about the possibility of the impeachment threat facing President Donald Trump by many on the left. Towards the end of the interview, the topic of the New York Times weekend hit piece that accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct while he was at a dorm party in college came up, along with calls by the left for Kavanaugh’s impeachment from the bench.

“Wow, the mainstream press lied to us again,” Jordan said. “I don’t think that should surprise anyone.”

Jordan went on to compare the media and politicians’ reporting on Kavanaugh to the Russian collusion investigation.

“This is so much like the Russia investigation,” Jordan continued. “For two years they told us all these things were gonna happen, and they had this narrative. And when we get it all said and done, wow, it wasn’t accurate. It wasn’t true. So, this is just another example of the mainstream press not being honest with the American people.”

Here's video of Jordan's comments (Kavanaugh comments begin at 6:43):

 

Tell us how you really feel, Rep. Jordan.

Jordan wouldn’t have to tell us how he really feels about the media if they’d only do their job. People, like those who wrote the hit piece for the NYT, like to call themselves journalists, when in reality they’re just low-information activists.
