Fetterman debate fiasco proves reporters ‘lied’ to shore up Senate Democrats: JNS column
According to Jonathan Tobin, editor-in-chief of the Jewish News Syndicate and a contributor to the National Review US Senate candidate John Fetterman He was completely sane to run for office when he “lied” to ensure that the Democrats “held control of the Senate.”
In The Jewish News Syndicate, Tobin claimed that these “team blue journalists” were “willing to hide or distort facts about his health to promote his candidacy.”
In addition, he noted that this is part of “a trend that has become commonplace in the media.”
Tobin’s article, titled “The Hard Truth About Media Bias: Some Journalists Lie,” began by observing that the debate between Fetterman and his Republican opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz, was “the weirdest meeting in living memory.”
According to Tobin, Fetterman is still suffering from the side effects of the stroke he suffered in May and is “obviously unable to understand or respond coherently to many questions. This was despite the closed captioning system helping him.”
He added: “It is a heavy sight and should evoke sympathy for his plight. We can only hope that he will eventually make a full recovery.”
The author then went after journalists who defended Fetterman, but not those who made his debate performance “acceptable,” but a number of “prominent liberal reporters” who “interviewed Fetterman in the months after his stroke and then convinced the public.” he was fine.”
He took aim at everyone who followed the “lone” reporter willing to talk about Fetterman’s health issues before the debate, NBC News’ Dasha Burns. Burns was furious, saying Fetterman struggled in small talk before his formal interview, which was off-topic so he could understand her questions.
Tobin wrote, “In response, blue-collar reporters launched a mob attack against Burns, accusing him of being insensitive or somehow pro-Republican.”
It featured a special author of The Atlantic and Vogue Molly John-Fast, New York Magazine’s Rebecca Traister and Vox and New York Magazine’s Kara Swisher were among those who trashed Burns in defense of Fetterman. He noted that the debate revealed that these “team blue journalists” were lying.
Tobin wrote, “Anyone who saw the tragic scene now knows who was telling the truth about Fetterman and who wasn’t. Burns adhered to the ethical standards of his profession and gave the public, regardless of his personal views on the election. important information.
He added: “As for John-Fast, Traister and Swisher, there is no better way to describe their claims. They lied.
The reviewer described their reasons for doing so: “The same goes for everyone who opposed the Burns report. They wanted the Democrats to keep control of the Senate. That meant Fetterman had to win. They were willing to cover up or distort the statement about his health to advance his candidacy. facts”.
Tobin went on to describe Fetterman’s defense as “sacrificing the truth to advance a political agenda,” adding that it was “just one example of a trend that has become commonplace in the media.”
