Scarborough: Critics of MSM ‘hate democracy and free press’, want Trump to be ‘dictator’

Mika Brzezinski Joe Scarborough MSNBC Morning Joe 6-15-22At NewsBusters, our mission is to expose and challenge the biases of the liberal media, AKA, “mainstream media.”

But if you believe Joe Scarborough, anyone who shares our views — especially giant hate object Donald Trump — must “hate democracy and free press” and want Trump to be a “dictator.” Who knew!?

Maybe you could accept that Biden is the rightful president – ​​and how badly he botches it – and still expose the liberal media.

Scarborough seemed immersed in reruns recalling in 2018, Lesley Stahl from 60 minutes claimed Trump told her off-camera that he spoke out against liberal media so people wouldn’t believe anti-Trump stories.

“And then they had alternate realities that they channeled through other media,” he complained. “That’s what strongmen do in third world countries. That’s what strongmen have been doing forever. It’s, it’s pure, it’s pure propaganda. There are huge networks and companies that feed off of them and make a lot of money feeding people lies.”

The irony is that Fox’s success was expressly due to the realization by millions of Americans that they were only getting the liberal side of the MSM story.

Scarborough attacked people – who might closely resemble a team of NewsBusters – who find bias and fake news in liberal newspapers:

SCARBOROUGH: Willie, what they do, what is it, what the enemies of press freedom are doing, and what, what are the people doing who want Donald Trump to be a dictator, and we have seen it. They will go through the thousands and thousands of New York Times and Washington Post stories. And then they will find an article that they did not quite understand. And then we will hear about it for weeks.

Our loyal NewsBusters readers know that outrageous errors, omissions, distortions of truth, and outright lies from the mainstream media are not the rare exception. Rather, as we document here, it is a daily occurrence. Then came the blasphemy:

SCARBOROUGH: Yes, I will say it: and then they do stupid things every day. Lies every day. Misinformation every day. And they will come back and they’ll find something that somebody, you know, said two years ago, hijacked. Again, this is just pure propaganda. We must call him by his name.

So strike Joe off the guest list for the RCN’s 35th anniversary gala. Do.

As for the hatred of press freedoms, it is the left that is the queen of cancel culture. They are the ones who ban conservative voices from social media, who shout against conservatives who dare to speak out on campus, and who seek to erase conservative views (see Senator Tom Cotton) from the columns of liberal newspapers.

In Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough claiming that mainstream media critics hate American democracy and free press, and want Donald Trump to be a dictator, was sponsored in part by Subway, DirecTV, Amazon and Walmart.

Here is the transcript.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: There’s a whole branch of disinformation online —

JOE SCARBOROUGH: — okay.

MIKA: — that we have people working to cover the news about what’s happening with democracy, and there are viewers who don’t understand.

. . .

SCARBOROUGH: Donald Trump and the Trumpists, over the past five years, have done two things. First, they ransacked the press. Donald Trump admitted to Lesley Stahl early on, I will attack the press constantly, so no one will believe when they write negative stories about me. And then they had alternate realities that they channeled through other media.

And I mean, that’s, I’m sorry, that’s what strong men do in third world countries. That’s what strong men have always done. It’s, it’s pure, it’s pure propaganda. There are massive networks and corporations feeding off of it, and making a lot of money feeding people lies.

JAMES STAVRIDIS: Right. It’s straight out of Dictator 101, it’s collapsing—Eddie is absolutely right—it’s collapsing the Fourth Estate.

. .

SCARBOROUGH: And Willie, what they do, what is it, what the enemies of press freedom are doing, and what, what are the people doing who want Donald Trump to be a dictator, and we have seen it. They will read the thousands and thousands of articles from the New York Times and the Washington Post. And then they will find an article that they did not quite understand. And then we will hear about it for weeks. . . But they will comb through thousands and thousands of stories. They’ll find one they got wrong, won’t they? And then they’ll go to town: that’s why we can’t…fake news! Fake news!

And then, yes, I will say it: and then they do stupid things every day. Lies every day. Misinformation every day. And they will come back and they’ll find something that somebody, you know, said two years ago, hijacked. Again, this is just pure propaganda. We must call him by his name.

These are people who want Donald Trump to be a dictator. They hate American democracy. They hate the freedom of the press. They will therefore attack the mainstream media.
