Predictable: Tiresome CNNer Calls on Media to Double Down on Trump Hate
With the 2020 election less than two weeks away, the left media has done everything in its power to ensure that President Donald Trump does not win re-election. The day after the last presidential debate, Carl Bernstein urged the media to double up.
The journalist stated: “[A] A lot will depend, I think, on the media and how we focus on the next 11 days, especially the Donald Trump issue. “
What else should you do besides a direct confirmation? CNN presenter Brianna Keilar had Bernstein on Friday afternoon in the CNN newsroom, where she was noticeably silent during these attacks. Bernstein gave his comrades several anti-Trump discussion points: “[T]The pathological lie, the racism, the call for guns for his supporters on the street to almost provoke violence in our electoral process. “
If this option were not activated, Trump would lead America into “a peculiar Trumpian American neo-fascism”.
It was unclear what more Bernstein wanted from his left-wing colleagues. The media was already embroiled in a four-year war against Trump, and an MRC study showed that left-wing networks have received Joe Biden far more positively than Trump.
Just this week, CNN posed several guests to ask voters to dump Trump, proclaimed voters “un-American” and did not press for the censorship of Hunter Biden stories. And that was just this week.
Nonetheless, Bernstein also made this outlandish claim: “Trump again appeals to his grassroots to get him close enough to victory that he can throw a wrench into the electoral process if there is no victory.”
This has been a regular attack by the media who further denied the point that they are doing anything to attack the president.
CNN and other networks have already gone out of their way to attack the president and it would be ugly to see what else they could do.

1:13 PM ET
BRIANNA KEILAR: Election day is just around the corner. We are 11 days away. Right now, President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are campaigning to connect with undecided voters and strengthen their base. More than 50 million have already cast their votes. The president is flying to Florida this hour to convince American seniors to support him for a second term. Seniors are a key electoral bloc to lead Trump into the White House in 2016, and they could prove to be a turning point in 2020. Biden will speak in his home state of Delaware next hour, where he will outline his plans to fight the pandemic and get unemployed Americans back to work. We’ll get you there live as soon as he’s on his way. And the final sprint for both men follows last night’s debate, in which they put forward 8 g completely different visions for the future of the country. The political scientist Carl Bernstein joins me. And you know Carl, President Trump and the former Vice President face each other for the last time before Election Day last night. This was the last place many Americans paid attention to. What did you think? What did you take away from the debate?
CARL BERNSTEIN [CNN Political Analyst]: Trump again appeals to his grassroots to bring him close enough to victory that he can throw a wrench into the electoral process if there is no victory. It is unlikely to be proven to win a majority of the vote in the electoral college. Rather, people I speak to in the White House and elsewhere say that his strategy is to undermine the electoral process to the point where he can work this out through legal challenge by not accepting whatever the voice of the American people is , and tried to hold onto office by other means. He’s still in the ball game. He didn’t perform like the first debate, which was almost fatal for him. He was much more coherent than usual. And his Republican supporters are happy with what he’s done. At the same time, the question arises whether this election, as we have seen all along, is really about the character of Donald Trump and the Covid crisis, the pandemic and his negligence, his neglect to kill hundreds of thousands of Americans cause. He’s trying to turn the debate off. And in the meantime, to bolster his base with some sort of repeal, we’ll see how, for the next 11 days, I was told by the presidents that we’re going to see a campaign against the scorched earth like that of The Dirtiest Part of campaign conducted by Donald Trump, unlike anything we’ve seen in our history, is what I was told last night.
KEILAR: All right. Buckle up. Hold on to our hats and glasses. It’s going to be a wild ride, as they say. I think we hear from ordinary people watching the 2016 election looking back that people who support Joe Biden or speak out against President Trump are concerned that polls fear they may be missing, even though polls point to positive attitudes to suggest something. And then people who support President Trump say that last time he defied expectations, this time he will defy expectations. Could we be surprised again?
BERNSTEIN: There is always room for surprises. That is of course a possibility. But a lot will depend on it, I think, on the media and how we focus on the next 11 days, especially Donald Trump, which is what he and his rhetoric and actions and words have been about for almost four years. the pathological lie, the racism, the calls for guns for his supporters on the street to almost provoke violence in our electoral process. We are dealing with the President of the United States, whose irresponsibility, recklessness, and lack of trust in the American process come dangerously close to a new kind of authoritarianism that we have never advocated by a President, something that is close to some strangely Trumpian American neo-fascism. Those are the real issues of the campaign, and I think most voters are aware that Donald Trump and his behavior is the real problem. Can Trump strengthen his base enough to end this election, and especially the Republican Senators I spoke to that this is his ultimate goal? Just get close enough that he cannot be forced to leave the White House with a clear win for Biden and if so he will create a constitutional crisis. I think we need to look at his words and actions over the last month and for the next eleven days in terms of his willingness and enthusiasm for creating a constitutional crisis if he does not get past 270 votes, which seems unlikely whatever happened to the Debate last night. The trajectory doesn’t seem to have changed much, but his strategy is to create such chaos that we will be very concerned about how our institutions, electoral college, Republicans in Congress and the system are dealing with a challenge to orderly and legal electoral process. Like we’ve never seen it before. That includes the kind of message he sends to his followers during parts of the debate like last night, the kind of baseless malicious allegations, the kind of language we’ve seen last month appeals to racism. As Biden said last night, much more than dog whistles, foghorns, towards racism, towards some kind of unacceptance of pluralistic America like we have never seen before. This is where we are, this is what we need to watch especially in the media, along with the coronavirus pandemic and his failure to act, his negligent negligence in not acting to save the lives of Americans. As he told my colleague Bob Woodward, on January 28th he knew we were facing the biggest national security crisis when he was told by his national security advisers that his presidency would see this and he decided not to just open it up to ignore, but also to ignore, it is almost as if he does not exist, as he said, so that he would not panic in America.
KEILAR: Carl, we’ll see you for the last few days. It is wonderful to see you. Thank you for coming.
