Scarborough: Critics Of MSM ‘Hate Democracy & Press Freedoms,’ Want Trump To Be ‘Dictator’

News & Politics

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

But if you believe Joe Scarborough, anyone who shares our view — most importantly the Giant Hate Object Donald Trump — must “hate democracy and press freedoms,” and want Trump to be a “dictator.” Who knew!?

Maybe you could accept Biden is the rightful president — and how badly he’s botching it — and still expose the liberal media. 

Scarborough seemed deep into reruns by recalling in 2018, Lesley Stahl of 60 Minutes claimed Trump told her off-camera that he denounced the liberal media so that people wouldn’t believe the anti-Trump stories.

“And then they had alternate realities that they channeled through other media outlets,” he complained. “It’s what strongmen do in Third World countries. It’s what strongmen have been doing forever. It’s, it’s pure, it’s pure propaganda. There are massive networks and corporations that are feeding right into it, and making a lot of money feeding people lies.”

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

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 is, what, what enemies of press freedom, and what, what people who want Donald Trump to be a dictator do is, and we’ve seen it. They’ll look through the thousands and thousands of New York Times and Washington Post stories. And then they’ll find an article that they didn’t get right. And then we’ll hear about it for weeks .

Our loyal NewsBusters readers know that outrageous mistakes, omissions, twisting of the truth, and outright lies by the mainstream media aren’t the rare exception. To the contrary, as we document here, it is an everyday occurrence. Then came the profanity: 

SCARBOROUGH: Yes, I will say it: and then they turn out bullshit every single day. Lies every single day. Misinformation every single day. And they’ll go back and they’ll find something that somebody, you know, said two years ago, twisted around. That’s it, again, it’s just pure propaganda. We’ve got to call it what it is. 

So let’s scratch Joe off the guest list for the MRC 35th anniversary gala. Done. 

As for hating press freedoms, it is the left who are the kings of cancel culture. They are the ones who ban conservative voices from social media, who shout down conservatives who dare to speak on campus, and who seek to expunge conservative views (see Sen. Tom Cotton) from the columns of liberal newspapers. 

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

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: There’s a whole disinformation arm online —

JOE SCARBOROUGH: — right.

MIKA: — that we have people who are working on covering the news about what is happening with democracy, and there are viewers who are not getting it. 

. . . 

SCARBOROUGH: Donald Trump, and Trumpists, over the past five years have done two things. One, they’ve trashed the press. Donald Trump admitted early on to Lesley Stahl, I’m going to attack the press constantly, so nobody will believe when they write negative stories about me. And then they had alternate realities that they channeled through other media outlets. 

And I mean, it’s, I’m sorry, it’s what strongmen do in Third World countries. It’s what strongmen have been doing forever. It’s, it’s pure, it’s pure propaganda. There are massive networks and corporations that are feeding right into it, and making a lot of money feeding people lies. 

JAMES STAVRIDIS:  Right. It’s right out of Dictator 101, is to break down—Eddie’s exactly right—is to break down the fourth estate.

.  . 

SCARBOROUGH: And Willie, what they do is, what, what enemies of press freedom, and what, what people who want Donald Trump to be a dictator do is, and we’ve seen it. They’ll look through the thousands and thousands of New York Times and Washington Post stories. And then they’ll find an article that they didn’t get right. And then we’ll hear about it for weeks . . . But they will comb through thousands and thousands of stories. They’ll find one they got wrong, right? And then they’ll go to town: this is why you can’t—fake news! Fake news! 

And then, yes, I will say it: and then they turn out bullshit every single day. Lies every single day. Misinformation every single day. And they’ll go back and they’ll find something that somebody, you know, said two years ago, twisted around. That’s it, again, it’s just pure propaganda. We’ve got to call it what it is. 

These are people who want Donald Trump to be a dictator. They hate American democracy. They hate press freedoms. So they’re going to attack the mainstream media.
