‘This is why we hate the national media!’ McCarthy gets ambushed with Trump questions

On a day when the prospective next GOP Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy spoke to the press about the incoming Republican majority, the predictable behavior of biased, activist reporters who declined to ask about real issues but instead pelted him with “gotcha” questions about former President Donald T. Trump’s controversial dinner with Kanye West, the latest silver bullet that his enemies are hoping will end his political career, brought further shame upon the Fourth Estate.

The disgraceful partisanship of so-called journalists was slammed by the “Outnumbered” crew on Tuesday’s edition of the popular Fox News daytime talk show with former congressman Jason Chaffetz offering his opinion that the treatment of McCarthy is another example of why so many Americans have come to despise and distrust the media.

Co-host Harris Faulkner got the ball rolling by praising McCarthy who, despite opposition, is the odds-on favorite to be the one to pry the speaker’s gavel from the clutches of Nancy Pelosi, noting that he used his time with the press outside of the White House after his meeting with President Joe Biden and congressional leaders to lay out the priorities for House Republicans despite the press’s focus on the presence of a certain uninvited guest at Trump’s breaking bread with “Ye” last week.

While acknowledging McCarthy’s staying on point, Chaffetz ripped the media over the obsession with the latest in years of ginned-up outrage campaigns about Trump.

“This spending bill that is before Congress, only got one or two questions from the media about that. We don’t have spending in place. We have this rail strike,” Chaffetz said, criticizing the refusal of reporters to focus on serious issues. “You know, you know what, I just got to say this, this is why America hates the national media. Three questions about Donald Trump meeting with Ye and whoever that white, you know…”

“They want clicks!” Faulkner said.

“That is so irresponsible! Before they talked about the rail strike, before they talked about the border, before they did all this, they got to talk about Donald Trump,” Chaffetz added. “This is why we hate the national media!”

The media has been in an absolute feeding frenzy after the highly controversial commentator Nick Fuentes was brought to West’s dinner with Trump as an uninvited guest with the rapper already a topic of contention given West’s recent troubles after poorly thought-out remarks about Jewish people, including his bizarre tweet about going “death con 3” on Jews, and the former president’s lax screening and vetting procedures gift-wrapped yet another gift to his enemies.

But even with the ambush questions, McCarthy held his own by doing his best to stay on message and rejected the idea that the Biden regime would use the full power of the federal government to prevent new Twitter owner Elon Musk from his efforts to restore free speech to the social media platform.

“Government’s going to go after someone who wants to have free speech? What do they have to look at Twitter about? Do they want to go more after American public about whether they can have an opinion on something? I think the American public have spoken on this,” he replied to a reporter. “I think our First Amendment stands up, and I — I think they should stop picking on Elon Musk.”

The treatment of McCarthy once again shows how the modern media has abandoned its traditional role as guardians of democracy who long spoke truth to power to instead serve as sycophantic lap dogs to a corrupt establishment that has been emboldened by their disgraceful abandonment of time-honored journalistic principles.
