(Tea Party PAC) – Last week, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough called out media outlets for “showing a hell of a lot more skepticism towards western governments” amid the coronavirus pandemic than they are “towards the Chinese authorities.”
During his rant, he called on specific outlets such as The New York Times, saying they need to “be far more careful” as they are “literally taking the word of the Chinese authorities” despite the fact that they have lied and attempted to cover-up the severity of the coronavirus outbreak in China.
Here’s what he said:
“Western media outlets have to be far more careful because I’m seeing a surge from The New York Times, I’m seeing other articles where they are literally taking the word of Chinese authorities despite what has happened over the past three months, despite the lying, despite the cover-ups, despite the destruction of records,” noted Scarborough. “And I would not bring this up normally because China and the United States have to work together now to get through this crisis. It did begin in China, but with western media outlets so rest recklessly moving forward, I don’t know exactly why they’re doing it, but they’re showing a hell of a lot more skepticism towards western governments right now, than they are towards the Chinese authorities that actually spread this through their cover-ups, through their lies. I don’t understand it.”
Scarborough makes a really valid point and we can certainly appreciate that. Liberal propaganda machines here in the US certainly are going to bat for China over our own government and it’s completely irrational. It makes zero sense that these “journalists” are defending China except for the fact that China owns them.
Not only has China lied and deceived the rest of the world and has done everything in their power to cover-up and minimize the severity of the outbreak there, there is good reason to believe China is engaging in a deliberate effort to crash our economy. Ever since President Trump took office he has been really tough on China. It was, apparently, only a matter of time before China took a shot at us and our economy.
While Scarborough brings up a good point and is right to call out the media for their bizarre and blatant defense of China, unfortunately, he’s a hypocrite. In the same day, he then went on to attempt to discredit the President and, as per usual, label his response to the coronavirus as “racist.”
According to the leftist publication Huff Post:
Scarborough acknowledged Trump’s term is “offensive” but warned “liberals and progressives and people in the media” that the president was “poking at you.”
“He wants you to become outraged so you will talk about that instead of talking about tests, so you’ll talk about that instead of talking about ventilators,” Scarborough continued.
“It’s called a rabbit trail,” he added. “Yes, it is offensive but, again, we can talk about this in November when the election is in full force. But this is all a distraction.”
So, out of one side of his mouth Scarborough calls out his fellow media sycophants for being misleading and untrustworthy by taking China’s word over our own government’s, while out of the other side of his mouth he tells us not to trust our own President because he is a “racist” thanks to the words he uses to accurately describe the coronavirus.
Scarborough says we can’t trust China because they’ve lied about the virus but then when Trump is truthful and upfront about the fact that the virus came from China, he’s a racist.
