Media blackout from major nets on Biden’s incriminating phone call with Afghan president

Driven by pure hatred of President Donald Trump, the alphabet media inundated the airwaves and print last year with stories on Trump’s call to the Ukrainian president, an effort that buoyed a sham impeachment being pursued by Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her highly partisan Democratic caucus.

A call that the former president’s attackers claimed centered on a quid pro quo offer, so imagine the surprise of rational people when, a year later, these same media entities pretty much ignored a call between President Joe Biden and Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani.

On Biden’s bombshell call, he pushed the Afghan leader to change the “perception” that the Taliban were winning, “whether it is true or not” — hanging in the balance was a promise that the U.S. would “continue to provide close air support” if Ghani announced an optics-changing plan.

“I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” Biden said, according to transcripts of the call. “And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”

A damning report, yet there appears to be a media blackout on the phone call, Fox News reported.

At the time of the call — in which Ghani warned his country was “facing a full-scale invasion, composed of Taliban, full Pakistani planning and logistical support, and at least 10-15,000 international terrorists, predominantly Pakistanis — Biden was hard at work reassuring America that it was unlikely the Taliban would be taking control of Afghanistan anytime soon.

Citing Grabien transcripts, Fox News reported that since London-based Reuters broke the story on Tuesday, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC have avoided mentioning the controversial phone call.

The same media that played a major role in helping Biden get elected are now ready to move on from the Afghanistan debacle. Their candidate is taking a beating after the deaths of 13 U.S. servicemembers, hundreds of Americans being left behind in a frantic exit that Biden allowed the Taliban to force. An exit that allegedly abandoned $85 billion of U.S. military equipment and weapons, making the Taliban one of the best-equipped armies in the region.

On Wednesday, CBS News did not report on Afghanistan during its evening newscast, according to Fox News. Neither did MSNBC primetime hosts Rachel Maddow or Chris Hayes — Hayes went so far as to justify Biden’s call in a tweet.

Don Lemon, who can be counted on to carry Biden’s water, openly stated that it was time to “move forward” and said people should stop “beating up” on the president.

 

“I think people should stop beating up on the administration so much because no matter how it ended, everyone wasn’t going to be happy with the way it ended,” Lemon said. “So if there’s any silver lining in this, it’s going to be what happens going forward. You can’t change the past, you can’t bring those lives back as awful as that is. And so, you know… I think the administration is getting beaten up on this a little bit too much because there’s a lot of blame to go around from four different presidents and who actually didn’t have the guts to get us out of Afghanistan because they were afraid of this moment and what an exit might look like.”

The CNN host would also try to spin that Biden left hundreds of Americans behind, their fates now in the hands of the brutal Taliban.

“We’re still seeing what’s happening. You can’t get them out there — you can’t get them all out in five minutes. You can’t get them all out yesterday,” he said. “So what happens going forward when we continue with this effort to get them out, and we start getting them out, as many out as possible. Then I think we should stop all, you know, running around like, ‘Oh my gosh! I can’t believe we left so many people behind!’ We don’t know if we left them behind yet. We don’t know yet.”

With such blatant bias in the media, the American people need to understand that the persistent migration to the left in the U.S. will continue unabated unless they make it clear that this is unacceptable.
