There is no longer much doubt about the slant of the mainstream media, and the departure of the entire infotainment industry from the world of journalism. What we see in cable news these days is not a part of some fact-finding mission, nor is it objective in the last. The job of these pundits is to invoke emotion and sell advertising space in between their theatrical rants and manufactured conflicts.
And so, when it comes to deciding what is “newsworthy”, these faux-jouralists have a whole lot of leeway, and Donald Trump Jr. isn’t afraid to call them out on it.
The former President’s son pushed back on the media this week by exposing just who different their reaction would be if it were one of the Trump kids who’d been discovered to be using the “N-word” in their text messages, as opposed to Hunter Biden.
“They would lose their damn minds, it would be the number one story on CNN, MSNBC, and the usual outlets for weeks straight,” Donald Trump Jr. told Breitbart News when asked how corporate media would respond if the shoe were on the other foot.
“Don Lemon, Yamiche [Alcindor], all of the usual suspects would go nuts, but amazingly they are 100% silent on this,” Don Jr. continued.Trending:
“The bottom line is the left is not intellectually honest about racism,” Don Jr. added. “They use it when they can for political gain, and when it serves no purpose it’s totally ignored. It’s a shame that they take something so serious so lightly and in essence make a mockery of all those afflicted.”
Hunter Biden was discovered to have flippantly used the racial slur several times in text messages to his lawyer.
