Not really a surprise … The left-wing media has been caught up in the Russian collusion narrative for two years now. And yesterday was a big day for them, when two of President Donald Trump’s associates became convicted felons, primarily for crimes that had nothing to do with Trump. The one case with ties to Trump was Michael Cohen pleading guilty to a campaign finance violation for paying off Stormy Daniels, something that LevinTV host Mark Levin explains isn’t illegal anyway.
What people are really interested in are the things that affect their everyday lives, not Russia. Issues like taxes, jobs, health care, and yes, illegal immigration and the crime it brings. That brings us to yesterday’s news that a young Iowan named Mollie Tibbetts was found dead and an illegal immigrant was charged with the crime. Mainstream media personalities were aghast that Fox News and conservative outlets would dare cover the news of the arrest over the convictions of Trump associates.
Is this really a surprise? The media has a narrative, and it must push it at any cost.
It gets worse … Not content to merely be upset with Fox’s coverage, some on mainstream outlets thought it necessary to attack Tibbetts herself. Take for instance Fordham University Professor Christina Greer, who said on MSNBC last night:
I’m sure we’ll hear what he has to say about this at his — his rally, but Fox News is talking about, you know, a girl in Iowa and not this, right? And, tomorrow morning, we know he’ll wake up in tweak and sort of, you know, besmirch the reputation of Michael Cohen and all the people around him and then go back to Mueller. And this has, obviously, been boiled down to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. (Emphasis added.)
“A girl in Iowa.” Who just happens to be dead, allegedly at the hands of an illegal immigrant who should not have been in this country.

Today CRTV announced that it will be carrying “The Rick & Bubba Show” daily. This weekend, Rick and Bubba’s annual Outdoor Expo is happening in Birmingham, Alabama, and I’m helping the team man a CRTV booth. That means I won’t be able to write Friday’s WTF MSM!? So I’ll see you on Monday. Or, if you are in Birmingham, come visit me at the booth and say hello! As always, email me at [email protected] with any comments.
We’re excited for “The Rick & Bubba Show” to join CRTV on September 10, 2018!
