The Washington Post reported, “Scores of news organizations — including The Washington Post — on Friday demanded congressional leaders release a trove of surveillance footage from the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol that the House speaker provided exclusively to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has downplayed the violence.”
None of these news organizations demanded this footage from Nancy Pelosi because the video undercuts the false narrative of an insurrection. Demanding the video now makes the story about the footage not what the footage shows.
American trust in the media is at an all-time low. Stunts like this show the trust is still too high. Media lies did this. The governor of Florida may force the media to stop lying, which is the only way to salvage the media’s poor reputation.
Politico’s Florida reporter, Matt Dixon, reported, “DeSantis wants to roll back press freedoms — with an eye toward overturning Supreme Court ruling.”
Hallelujah. Finally, someone will hold the Fourth Estate accountable for its massive lies about conservatives. Dixon referred to overturning Sullivan v. New York Times, which held that an ad in NYT by Ralph Abernathy and other civil rights leaders were within their rights when they libeled the Birmingham Police.
