The broadcast networks doubled down Wednesday in their defense of the woke general, Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley, going from beyond just circling the wagons to building out a fort backed by President Joe Biden. Each of the big three were out to paint him as a hero who single-handedly kept President Trump from destroying the world, a delusion they and Milley wished was true. They even tried to rationalize his promise to China to sell out America if we attacked.
Again, CBS Evening News was the most enthusiastic to defend Milley, especially considering ViacomCBS owned the book publisher that glorified Milley. Once they got to the story, anchor Norah O’Donnell and chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes rushed to get a soundbite of Biden on-screen to support the treasonous general:
O’DONNELL: Well, tonight, the President and the Pentagon are defending the nation's top military officer after bombshell revelations that he reached out to China, fearing a war in the final days of the Trump administration. CBS' Nancy Cordes reports from the White House.

CORDES: President Biden expressed complete support today for the nation's highest-ranking military officer.
BIDEN: I have great confidence in General Milley.
