Republican Reps Take On Liberal Media

They're spot on.

As Republican members of Congress Reps Byron Donalds and Kat Cammack have a legitimate beef with the leftist media. The double standard is so obvious that any Republican or conservative can assume they will be crucified over things any Democrat will get away with. That is not healthy for a republic. It can lead to political conformity of the worst sort.

Fox: “Florida Republican Reps. Byron Donalds and Kat Cammack tore into the liberal media over biased coverage after new research showed a severe lack of trust in the media by the American public.

Recent polling by Gallup showed only 16% of Americans said they have a “great deal or quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers with only 11% of Americans having confidence in television. It represented a 5% decrease since 2021 and was also the lowest rating given towards newspapers since Gallup’s original poll back in 1973.

Donalds, speaking with Fox News Digital at TPUSAs 2022 Student Action Summit, said journalists must be more responsible in their positions, and cited the overwhelming “liberal worldview” prevalent in major universities as a prime factor in their biases. He also said most major publications are centered in major U.S. cities, such as New York and Washington D.C., which both overwhelmingly vote Democrat.”

“You’ve got to cover both sides,” Donalds said. “If you only cover one side what you get is dogma. And actually what you get is more separation between the parties and amongst the electorate—because everyone’s either going to be thirsting for the narrative you throw or they’re going to reject the narrative because out of hand they know it’s illogical, and they’re going to seek an alternative.” Donalds said “nobody trusts the media.”

That’s nuts. That’s why people don’t trust them, because when they watch news reporters, and especially when they watch the opinion reporters, they know they’re not telling the full story. They know they’re being political. And I think Americans have had enough,” Donalds said.

“When it came out that, nope, this is actually not a doctored photo, here are all the palates of baby formula, they just went quiet,” Cammack told press. “They didn’t apologize, they didn’t retract their statements, they just moved on. And to me that really speaks volumes about their lack of credibility.

“It’s gotten really messy,” Cammack said. “And when you look at it, people are not dumb. People see right through the endgame, and you have to ask yourself, who are the advertisers? Where are these publications getting their money from, because it really stems a lot from that as well. So, it’s no wonder that people are looking for alternative journalism sources because they are really starting to see the bias. A lot of these outlets aren’t hiding it anymore.”
