Nets Fail to Admit Stone Judge Agreed With AG Barr’s Recommendation


***To read the full blog, please check out the complete post on NewsBusters***

After spending days decrying Attorney General William Barr as a stooge for President Trump after he overruled overzealous federal prosecutors seeking a maximum of nine years in the sentencing of Roger Stone, Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down a sentence in line with the recommendation Barr amended. Despite this fact, the liberal broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) made it seem as though the Judge was defying Barr.

On ABC’s World News Tonight, chief Justice correspondent Pierre Thomas carefully reconstructed what happened in the case to craft a narrative against Barr. “Federal prosecutors initially recommending that Stone receive a seven to nine-year prison sentence, only to be overruled by Attorney General William Barr,” he said.

He then boasted that “Stone alone faced the wrath of a scolding Judge” as he proceeded to read this quote: “The truth still exists. The truth still matters. Roger Stone's insistence that it doesn't, his belligerence, his pride in his own lies are a threat to our most fundamental institutions, to the foundations of our democracy. If it goes unpunished, everyone loses."

To back up that scolding, Thomas then noted Jackson “sentenced him to three years and four months in prison.” At no point did he precisely mention what Barr’s recommendation was, nor did he report how other federal prosecutors resubmitted the original recommendation.
