If a military general tried to insert himself into the chain of command in an attempt to usurp power from a President Biden and promised America’s chief adversary they would warn them if we were going to attack, the liberal media would be screaming and calling it what it was: treason. But since Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley did those exact things to President Trump, CBS and NBC came out in strong support of it during their Tuesday evening newscasts, suggesting he was protecting the nation.
CBS Evening News was the most eager to push Milley’s claims and fears of Trump without a shred of evidence. In her introductory tease, anchor Norah O’Donnell proclaimed that Trump had gone “rogue.” She then praised how “America's top general worried then-President Trump would spark a war with China. We'll tell you the dramatic steps he took to make sure Trump wouldn't launch a nuclear weapon.”
The allegations were made in Peril, a book written by Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. And of course, CBS would be the most excited to peddle the story, they’re owned by the same parent company (Viacom) that owned the publisher of the book (Simon & Schuster). It was only when they were well into their report did Pentagon correspondent David Martin admit that fact.
