It seems as though Andrea Mitchell has no memory of ever showing her bias while reporting. Let’s help her count the ways, shall we?
The MSNBC anchor was interviewed this week by fashion magazine Women’s Wear Daily and they asked her, “Do you feel that you’ve ever gone too far where you’ve shown bias in your reporting?”
Mitchell struggled to recall a single moment:
“Everything is subjective to a certain extent. Let me think about that. I’m sure there have been times where I have – either through not enough reporting or through some sort of incipient opinion – let something creep in. I can’t think of it.”
Our man-on-the-street Luke Skywalker reports:
She did, however, manage to come up with one teeny-tiny thing, but you’d think it was a punchline of a joke. Mitchell actually said she was probably a little “too aggressive” with Hillary Clinton during the campaign.
*Cue laugh track*
Wait a second... Was Mitchell being “too aggressive” with Clinton when she defended her e-mail scandal?
What about the times Mitchell was critical of Israel? She drooled all over John Kerry, praising him for his work on a two-state solution while decrying Trump whom she feared might undo it all? Or the time she rolled her eyes while speaking about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an interview Iran’s foreign minister? Or when she affirmed President Obama’s slap at the Israeli prime minister when she said, “Take that, Bibi.” Was that one of those moments something just “crept in?”
On air, Mitchell has expressed her dislike of the vetting process for refugees, slandered the entire South as racist after the Charleston church massacre, and even strangely questioned Texas Gov. Greg Abbot’s “supposed disability.”
You're welcome, Andrea, glad to help out.
