Monday on MSNBC’s Deadline, former Rep. Donna Edwards lamented that it was not “fair” the media acts like there are two equal sides when covering politics because Republicans are destroying democracy and favoring “authoritarianism.”
Edwards said, “I mean, for the last five years, you have been covering the demise of democracy as we have seen all the guardrails pulled down from the Republican Party. The challenge that we have is that it isn’t just that Republican people or those who consider themselves Republican voters have steered toward authoritarianism. It’s that there are no leaders or few leaders in the House and the Senate, in the Congress of the United States, who are willing to take another view and a different direction.”
What nonsense. Republicans steering toward authoritarianism? The fact is, it is the Democrat Party, controlled by the radical left, that is careening toward totalitarianism.
Edwards continued, “I don’t think it is fair for journalists to do the one side versus the other side. There really is one side here. One is democracy. One is upholding democratic and constitutional conventions. The other is authoritarianism. There is no middle ground there. So we can’t cover it as though somehow, you know, one side is equivalent to the other side. I think that is where we have been challenged over these five last years.”
And there you have it: Democrats don’t believe journalists should fairly and objectively cover both sides of the issues. They want journalists to be fellow activists in demonizing and de-legitimizing their evil political opponents. We all know this has been happening anyway for years, but here is a former congresswoman openly advocating for a partisan, biased approach to reporting the truth.
