Liberals know that when Trey Gowdy speaks out it is not good for their cause.
Gowdy just destroyed one of the left’s biggest allies.
And Trey Gowdy sent CNN into panic mode with what he just revealed.
Americans are not united by much in today’s politics.
But one thing the vast majority of Americans do not trust is the corporate media.
A Gallup poll showed only 15 percent of Americans had faith that the so-called “mainstream” media told the truth.
Gowdy mocked the media for uniting Republicans and Democrats around one universal shared truth.
“I want to congratulate the media, they have managed to do that which seemed impossible. A pandemic could not do it, natural disasters can’t do it, war can no longer do it. But the media has done it. In a country rife with vision torn asunder with political fights, the media has brought about a glimmer of unity. The media has united the country in believing that the media is untrustworthy, unfair, and biased,” Gowdy said on his Sunday night Fox News show.
Gowdy said the public lost trust in the press because the press abandoned fairness.
“Disdain and distrust for the media cross geographical and generational and ideological boundaries. In other words, having no confidence in the fairness of media may be the single most unifying thing we have going for us. And when everyone thinks you are wrong, that should be cause for self-reflection, but not for the media. They don’t blame themselves, they blame you and the internet and lack of diversity, except of course, a lack of political diversity. The public does not trust media and believe that media is fair, because the media is not fair. It’s not complicated. The media doesn’t speak truth to power, the media tries to influence who’s in power. The media isn’t a societal referee, it’s an active participant in the contest,” Gowdy continued.
The press was long a citadel of liberal bias.
But in the Trump years reporters actively put on Democrat Party jerseys and pushed fabrications, lies, hoaxes and conspiracy theories as “news” all in an effort to drive Trump from office.
Gowdy warned members of the press that they risked the future of America as a democracy and a free society by transparently lying and pushing fake news on behalf of a political agenda.
“A country and a culture cannot survive without fairness. We need… an impartial, neutral detached judge… Americans know fairness is a virtue. And we salute the humility of those who can call the game without trying to influence the game,” Gowdy stated.
A poll showing just 15 percent of Americans trusting the corporate press should serve as a wakeup call and a moment of self-reflection from so-called “journalists.”
But given the sorry state of the media that is unlikely.
