The anti-Trump bias at NBC is so strong that even the Washington Post is calling it out

NBC recently published this article about a Trump Tower meeting with Russians which had happened during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The Washington Post later published this article, in which it quoted the following correction from the NBC article. The NBC correction states:

CORRECTION (Aug. 31, 6:30 p.m.): An earlier version of this article used an incorrect quotation in describing Paul Manafort’s notes. According to a spokesman for Sen. Charles Grassley, whose committee staff has reviewed them, the notes did not include the word “donation.” A source who provided the information said the notes used a word that referenced political contributions, and another source said the notes used the word “donor.”

The Washington Post, commenting on both the original and corrected versions of the NBC article, wrote:

Both before the correction and after the correction, in other words, this story provides only fodder for innuendo and conspiracy, not for sound conclusions about what happened.

For the Washington Post to say something like that about NBC is quite stunning.

The anti-Trump bias at NBC is so strong that even the Washington Post is calling it out.

I hope the Washington Post will either confirm or debunk these statements by the Southern Poverty Law Center about Jason Kessler, the organizer of the alt-right rally in Charlottesville

Jason Kessler is the organizer of the alt-right rally that recently took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Southern Poverty Law Center wrote of Kessler:

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city, Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

Regardless of Kessler’s past politics, the rightward shift in his views was first put on display in November, 2016 when his tirade against Wes Bellamy began.

If this had been posted by some right wing conspiracy blog, I would dismiss it as being fake news.

But this was published by a highly reputable left wing source.

I hope the Washington Post will investigate this to either debunk it or confirm it.

If it is true, then Kessler is a left wing nut job masquerading as a right wing nut job.

After Rudy Giuliani said 93% of black murder victims were murdered by other blacks, the Washington Post said his statement was accurate, but then they gave it two Pinocchios anyway!

You can read the Washington Post’s lengthy and ridiculous attempt to justify their two Pinocchio rating for a statement that they admit is accurate here.

Washington Post: “I’m an Obama supporter. But Obamacare has hurt my family. Obamacare has been far more frustrating than I’d ever dreamed.”

Obamacare brought us new health insurance options, but cost us our more affordable plans.

In November 2013, Jim learned his small-business policy would be canceled because it didn’t comply with the new mandate to cover pediatric dentistry and maternity care.

The individual plan I had with Blue Cross was canceled, too.

We learned patience, but we couldn’t keep our doctors.

We had applied online and sent copies of our passports to California Covered for verification, but we received no bill, no confirmation of our coverage, no insurance cards. Jim spent an hour and a half on hold once before getting disconnected. He tried again the next day, waiting another two hours before getting disconnected.

… the urologist wouldn’t accept our new Blue Shield plan – even though the Blue Shield website said he did.

We have no choice to opt out of the required pediatric dentistry or maternity coverage we’ll never use…

On October 25, 2013, regarding the various criticisms of Obamacare, Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius said:

“Don’t believe what you’ve heard.”

In other words, the Obama administration says we shouldn’t believe the Washington Post, the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, Associated Press, Reuters, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, Politico, the Wall St. Journal, the Christian Science Monitor, Investor’s Business Daily, Forbes, the BBC, Huffington Post, the Nation, Mother Jones, or New Republic.
