WSJ Blasts “Willing Press Echo Chamber” For Enabling Schiff To “Distort Truth For Political Gain”

With Bloomberg News now banned from Trump campaign events, after openly admitting its political bias, and with the likes of Harwood and Todd now fully paid up members of the resistance, there has been one voice from the establishment media that has remained quietly ‘balanced’, quietly not-activist, and quietly reporting the news.

The Wall Street Journal has lambasted President Trump for his trade war, anguished over his manner, and criticized many of his actions as President; but, unlike the rest of the mainstream media, they have also acknowledged his successes, reported the facts about various left-wing conspiracies (as opposed to amplified them), and has not been afraid to stand alone as a quasi voice of reason amid the most-polarized environment this nation has known since the Civil War.

All of which is background for what The Journal did tonight as its Editorial Board dared to go after two ‘untouchables’ – Rep. Adam Schiff and the Washington press corps.

In a stunning rebuke of both, an op-ed details how the Horowitz report exposes the Democrat’s many distortions. They begin with a jab-jab-cross…

“Monday’s Justice Department Inspector General report on the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe is illuminating in many ways, not least the light it casts on the previous claims by politicians when they were telling the public about what they saw in classified documents.

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff in particular has been exposed for distortions and falsehoods.”

And after exposing the lies, distortions, and falsehoods that Schiff again and again promoted on any TV screen that would have him, The Journal concludes with a Tyson-esque upper-cut to end the battle…

“Mr. Schiff had access to the same documents as Mr. Nunes.

His decision to misrepresent the FBI’s actions shows he is willing to distort the truth for political purposes.

He gets away with this because he has a willing echo chamber in the Washington press corps.”

Once again, Schiff has been exposed for undertaking exactly the kind of partisan lying and manipulation that he claims – falsely – the Republicans (and particularly Mr. Nunes – who has been ultimately vindicated) have been doing all along.

The only question America must have now is simple – where is the accountability?
