Unfortunately for former Clinton official Philippe Reines, he was the object of a rhetorical beat down during Sunday’s MediaBuzz on the Fox News Channel, all thanks to our friend Mollie Hemingway at The Federalist over coverage of alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.
Before Reines tried and failed to land his jabs, Hemingway laid out a logic case for why the whistleblower’s name should be in the public domain even though the press seem more concerned about staying in the good graces Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA):
Well, I think people should be concerned in protecting people that are in public news, but the most important thing is that the media should be in the business of sharing information that is in the public interest and there’s no question that it is in the public interest and we’re not seeing this kind of concern that the media has for this whistleblower that they have had for other people. You had CNN doxxing a grandmother cause they don’t like what she put on Facebook, you know, showing her in the front lawn. You have NBC recently outing a Russian — a — an American spy who Russian. You have had The New York Times out a CIA station chief in Iran, you don't see concern when it doesn't match their political motivation and, of course, Adam Schiff first demanded that the whistleblower testify until that precise moment that it was revealed that they had coordinated prior to him filing the complaint. So it seems like the media are just following what Adam Schiff wants. It’s not a good look.
