Media continues to bleed credibility and child rape victims are one of their victims
Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel:
...Their journalistic ethics appear to be completely warped. I don't expect them to respond to this criticism because they have no rational response for such conduct. They are willing to let people associated with Democrats get away with child rape and at the same time let people make up stories about Republicans in order to push their baby-killing agenda. They will do and say anything to permit child scrifice.
"[Roberts] told me everything. She had pictures. She had everything. She was in hiding for 12 years. We convinced her to come out. We convinced her to talk to us. It was unbelievable what we had. [Bill] Clinton. We had everything. I tried for three years to get it on, to no avail, and now it's all coming out. And it's, like, these 'new revelations,' and I freaking had all of it. I am so pissed right now. ... What we had was unreal."
The Epstein case resonates as a shining example of the growing chasm between our society's elites and everyone else. If the super wealthy and super connected can even get away with raping young girls with almost no punishment, our system is beyond broken.
After the footage came out, Robach released a statement, presumably at ABC's request, saying her past commentary was "a private moment of frustration." ABC said they didn't run the interview because they "could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC's editorial standards about her allegations."
ABC's claims that the story didn't run because of a lack of "corroborating evidence" are hard to accept after the same network chose to run outlandish and completely uncorroborated reports about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, peddled at the time by now disgraced Democratic activist and lawyer Michael Avenatti. There's no explanation for such disparate treatment besides pure bias.
Actually, there is one further explanation: politically partisan bias. Avenatti's claims were made against Kavanaugh, a Republican. The claims against Epstein potentially implicated former President Bill Clinton. ABC killed the story when Hillary Clinton was running for president. ABC's lead news anchor is George Stephanopoulos, Bill Clinton's former staffer.
CBS News, MSNBC and CNN responded to the shocking Robach video by largely ignoring it. ABC News, in addition to their clearly bogus statement, responded by searching for the whistleblower who released the video. Reports indicate that ABC found the whistleblower was working at CBS. The same reports indicate that ABC informed CBS of this and CBS followed up by firing the whistleblower.
Taken together, we have all three major U.S. television broadcast networks implicated to some degree in covering for rapists:
First, Farrow in his new book says NBC killed his report on alleged rapist Weinstein, another Clinton confidant, after Weinstein threatened to disclose NBC's cover-up of sexual misconduct allegations against Lauer, its own anchor.
Then we have ABC anchor Robach claiming that ABC News killed her report on alleged child rapist Epstein.
And finally, according to the New York Post, CBS News has now fired the woman who released the Robach video.
A recent Gallup poll found that 69% of Americans have lost trust in the news media over the past decade. Based on these sordid events of the past couple of months, that number may now be closer to 100%.
