On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway and Federalist Co-Founder Sean Davis discuss topics concerning American culture, specifically analyzing the mainstream media’s involvement in the recent defacement of historical monuments and handling of President Trump’s Fourth of July speech at Mount Rushmore.
“I feel like we’ve been conditioned to a whole bunch of media lies, whether it was the Russia hoax, or pretty much anything, the coronavirus, the protests, and the riots. They’ve lied about anything,” Davis said. “And now when they do it and they take it to the level they did after that speech. I’m not sure they even watched it. It was such a coordinated response across the left.”
Davis said the mainstream media has proven they will take anything that is good news for the country, because it is also a positive reflection on the president, and distort or ignore the story.
The statue destruction, Hemingway said, which began as a movement led by rioters about removing Confederate statues, was quickly compounded by the mainstream media’s defense of toppling prominent American figures such as the Founding Fathers.
