Trump Slams ‘Terrible’ NBC Reporter: ‘Get Back To Reporting Instead Of Sensationalism’

Published

on

President Trump handed out a pretty tough dig to a reporter from NBC who asked him a question about Americans “who are scared” about the coronavirus outbreak flooding hospitals and local communities with cases of the illness.

Now, to provide proper context for Trump’s frustrations, it’s important to note that the president has been having a lot of difficulty dealing with the mainstream media who consistently say that his calling the COVID-19 virus the “Chinese virus,” accusing him of being a racist.

“I say, I think you are a terrible reporter, that’s what I say,” Trump told the reporter, NBC News’ Peter Alexander, at Friday’s White House coronavirus press briefing. “I think that’s a very nasty question and I think it is a very bad signal that you are putting out to the American people.”

“The American people are looking for answers are they’re looking for hope and you’re doing sensationalism, the same with NBC and ‘Con-cast.’ I don’t call it Comcast, I call it ‘Con-cast,’ whom you work,” he said.

“Let me say something,” the president continued. “That’s really bad reporting. You ought to get back to reporting instead of sensationalism. Let’s see if it works. It might, and it might not. I happen to feel good about it, but who knows? I have been right a lot. Let’s see what happens.”

Ouch.

To be fair, the president is not exactly wrong. The mainstream media in America has been very bad about sensationalizing the virus ever since it hit our shores. They have done far more fear mongering than they have been equipping folks with what they need to know in order to get through this rough ordeal.

Was the president a little harsh? Maybe.

Was it necessary.

Definitely.

Manhunt Ensues After Possible Ex-Cop Commits Massacre in Texas

Authorities are telling residents to shelter in place.

The citizens of Austin, Texas are on high alert Sunday afternoon after a massacre left at least three people dead with the suspect still at large as of this writing. Law enforcement has identified the suspected killer, and are scouring the city looking for clues. A massive multi-agency manhunt including the FBI and U.S. Marshals is underway in Austin for an armed suspect wanted for killing at least three people near an apartment complex late Sunday morning. Austin police said that the three lifeless bodies were all adults, including two Hispanic females, and one Black male. They said they believe the suspect is Stephen Nicholas Broderick, who is possibly a former law enforcement officer charged with sexual assault of a child last summer. Austin’s KXAN, citing an arrest affidavit, reported last June that the Travis County Sheriff’s Office detective was on administrative leave following an arrest for allegations of sexual assault. Police had some very specific ideas of what could come next in the case. The Austin Police Department said the suspect was still at large as of approximately 2:30 p.m. local time and is considered armed and dangerous. Police have urged everyone nearby to shelter in place and report suspicious activity. “We are concerned he might possibly take a hostage and be himself sheltered somewhere waiting for us to leave,” Interim Austin Police Chief Joseph Chacon said during a news conference Sunday afternoon. Police said that the victims were known to Broderick, but did not elaborate any further.

Biden Team Sends Stern Threat to Russia Over Navalny’s Health

This is just the latest escalation in the war of words between these two nations.

Published

While every nation on this planet likely harbors some sort of terrible secret, or some evil underpinnings, no one plays the role of international bad guy quite like Russia does. The enormous nation has no real qualms about the world knowing its business, and Vladimir Putin has held onto power for as long as he as by doing the bare minimum required to keep him from being called a dictator. Beyond that, the nation appears fond of strongman-shenanigans like poisoning and jailing dissident journalists like Alexi Navalny, who is on death’s door in a Russian prison camp. If he dies, US President Joe Biden says that the Kremlin will pay the price. President Joe Biden’s national security adviser warned Sunday that there will be repercussions for Russia if Putin critic Alexei Navalny dies, amid reports that his health is rapidly deteriorating in prison. “We have communicated to the Russian government that what happens to Mr. Navalny in their custody is their responsibility and they will be held accountable by the international community,” Jake Sullivan said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Biden has had a fairly poor relationship with Russia doing his first few months in office, with the two nations issuing not-so-subtle statements and threats in each others’ direction.
