Suddenly, those in the news want to suppress the news.
As the Left continue to shake in their boots over the potential impact of the GOP-headed Nunes memo regarding abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the rhetoric ratchets ever-upward.
With the memo's disclosure drawing near -- and the FBI's investigation into Trump-Russia election collusion appearing vulnerable -- the biased media is doubling down on its attack. One notable example is Brian Karem, executive editor for Sentinel newspapers.
On CNN's Newsroom Thursday, the political analyst claimed that Donald Trump's desire for the truth to come out (which is supposed to be the desire of all journalists) was in actuality the act of a "mad" "mafia boss" in preparation to end democracy:
“This is a tipping point for our democracy. Are we going to be a democracy after today or is this going to be demagoguery and despotism?”
So, how does the determination of whether a government agency abused its power end democracy? Karem didn't qualify his statement, likely because it makes no sense.
Continuing, Karem called Trump "a demagogue pushing back against the democratic process." But the journalist wasn't done:
"This is a mafia boss gone mad!"
Oookay. Moderator Brooke Baldwin didn't seem fazed by the ridiculousness of Karem's narrative. Eventually, he settled on this blunt expression:
“This is an administration that does not enjoy, nor respect the rule of law...This is an administration that hasn't had a solo press conference in a year.”
Karem's unhinged, irrational rage against the President seems to result in various embarrassing incidents. In response to Trump's State of the Union reference to "In God We Trust" being the U.S. motto, Karem quickly corrected the Commander-in-Chief:
"Our motto is 'in God we trust.' - WRONG. Our motto has been E Pluribus Unum - out of many One."
Karem was, unfortunately for him, dead wrong.
