After emphatically insisting there’s no Deep State, NY Times columnist changes mind

Screengrab NBC – New York Times columnist James B. Stewart

In an op-ed run by Fox News, Dan Gainor noted how the media has insisted from the very beginning of President Donald Trump’s tenure that there is no “Deep State,” even as his administration “started leaking like a cheese grater.”

Gainor, vice president for business and culture at the Media Research Center, names some of the major news outlets that have made the claim, including David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker.

“The problem in Washington is not a Deep State; the problem is a shallow man – an untruthful, vain, vindictive, alarmingly erratic president,” Remnick declared in 2017.

With impeachment fever sweeping the liberal press, Gainor informs us of a book being plugged by New York Times columnist James B. Stewart, “Deep State,” as the author effectively acknowledges that there is a state within a state.

“[O]nly he sees the Deep Staters as heroes – the same way the rest of his media buddies do,” Gainor wrote.

This being a sure-fire way to tell that a Republican sits in the White House.

Stewart appeared on NBC’s “Today Show” and co-host Savannah Guthrie set the tone when she acted as if Trump’s concerns about DC apparatchiks working to sabotage his administration were unfounded.

“And his central allegation is that there are people inside these government agencies actively working against him,” she told Stewart, seeking his response.

“Well, you meet these characters in my book, and the fact is, in a sense, he’s right,” Stewart said. “There is a Deep State, there is a bureaucracy in our country who has pledged to respect the Constitution, respect the rule of law.”

“What Trump calls the Deep State in the United States is protecting the American people and protecting the Constitution. It’s a positive thing in this sense,” he added.

So ratting on a GOP administration is a good thing, although we get the sense that if there is a Democrat administration in power, the sentiment is very likely to change.

As Gainor posited, only leftists see efforts within the government to overturn the result of a legal election as “positive.”

“For those of you following at home, that’s another media narrative destroyed. Bury it next to the Russia collusion hoax,” he penned.

Central to all of this is the so-called “Ukraine whistleblower,” the driving force behind the Democratic Party’s rogue impeachment inquiry.

According to reports, this individual is a CIA official who had worked with Joe Biden when the candidate was Barack Obama’s vice president — given all the details we now know, it’s not hard to grasp the reality that there are members of the U.S. intelligence apparatus that are hostile to this president.

Gainor also points out how much of the media, including NBC’s Chuck Todd, have “lost any sense of neutrality.”

“The biggest proponents of impeachment outside the Deep State are what we should probably call the Shallow Media,” he said.

Several examples of the media’s bias are detailed, but it shouldn’t be lost that a N.Y. Times columnist has admitted that President Trump is right about there being a deep state. With that determination now put aside as fact, the debate in America can begin on the morality of this state within a state.
