President Donald Trump’s exposure of the liberal media’s bias will go down as one of his “biggest services” to the country, according to political analyst Jeffrey Lord.

The columnist and contributing editor at The American Spectator told Fox News that Trump has helped “out” the hypocritical media figures who have dropped the masks on their biased attempts at so-called journalism and damaged their own reputations in attacking the president for four years.

Lord praised Trump as guest host Lisa Boothe chronicled the “The Worst in Media,”  covering their abysmal 2020 behavior on “The Ingraham Angle” Wednesday.

“I think one of the best things that happened over the past four years is the liberal media has been forced to drop this cloak of fake objectivity, we all see them for the partisans they are,” she said after playing a clip of CNN’s Don Lemon and others who were emotional after Joe Biden was projected as the winner of the 2020 presidential election.

“I think there is a serious rot that has come to underlie the national liberal media, mainstream media — whatever you want to call it,” Lord agreed.

“All of their standards are just gone with the wind,” he said.

“This, in a way, may be one of President Trump’s biggest services to America, is to out them” Lord, a former CNN commentator  added, drawing a comparison to how the media swooned over President John F. Kennedy in the 1960 election and said they had “felt they were soldiers on the way to the new frontier with JFK.”

“The only difference now is it’s out there, everybody sees it, the president has helped ‘out’ them,” Lord contended. “There is a real rot there and I think they’ve got to do some serious soul-searching about this, not that that will happen.”

“What does that mean for the media? Now that everyone sees them for the partisans that they are,” Boothe asked Adam Guillette, the president of Accuracy in Media.

“I thought they did a good job because, in an absence of professional football, we needed to see cheerleaders, and these guys were openly cheerleaders for Joe Biden all fall,” he said, prompting laughter from Boothe.

“I’m envisioning Jim Acosta in a cheerleading outfit right now,” she said of CNN’s White House reporter. “It’s not a pretty sight, I need to get it out of my head!”

Boothe went on to highlight other media moments, pointing to the sudden defense and positive spin on deceased Iranian terrorist Qassem Soleimani who was killed by U.S. airstrike.

Soleimani was “regarded in Iran as a heroic figure [and] personally very brave,” according to CNN host Fareed Zakaria.

“Let’s remember when the media thought it was a good thing when the president was Barack Obama and he took out Usama bin Laden and frankly, good for him. They all cheered him on,” Lord noted.

“This is just so blatant at this point — if Donald Trump does something, it’s bad. If anybody else does something, it’s good. It’s shameful and damaging their own reputation,” he said.

Lord also commented on a clip of MSNBC host Ali Velshi reporting from Minneapolis during the George Floyd riots, claiming that the protests were “not generally speaking unruly” even as a building burned behind him.

“What is always interesting to me is they don’t care you can see it. It’s right there, it’s happening right in front of your own eyes and yet they are going to try to tell you up is down and down is up — and the American people just no longer believe it,” Lord noted.

He also pointed out the bias in how the liberal media has treated Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

“If we are going to be going through this for the next four years in the media is going to have to be held to account,” he said. “As I say, there is a serious rot underlying the media when it acts like this — and it’s not good.”
