Greg Gutfeld: The media struggle to find real villains, so they make them up


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Last night I did what a lot of young men do when they’re alone: ​​think Katie Couric. Of course, she made the news last week for admitting to suppressing remarks about kneeling professional athletes in an interview with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in order to protect Ginsburg. Like RBG needed protection from that fool. Hey Katie, Ginsburg in his current state is still mentally stronger than you.

Now on CNN – between pizzas, Brian Stelter worried that his cover-up “is contributing to a decline in media confidence.” Well, isn’t that the pot-bellied pig calling the black kettle? Brian, you’re a regular Magnum PI or in your case Magnum PIE But even though media manipulation is still new to CNN, we have always knew that if there’s a story they want you to obsess over, they’ll fill your day with it.

MSNBC is showing the same clip of the same people brawling with officers on January 6 over and over again. As if it was a cover of “Will and Grace”. But if there’s a story they want to hide, they’ll erase it faster than I do with my browsing history when the woman comes in.

Couric did it with RBG. They did it with the story of the Hunter laptop. Meanwhile, on Friday, amid a glut of bad news regarding his presidency, Biden attempted to erase that by saying that those who refuse subpoenas regarding Jan.6 should be prosecuted. Costs.

Now be your son, old man. Ah. Just kidding – Hunter broke more laws than Jimmy Failla filing his tax return. But he is exempt. He’s not Jimmy. He’s a Biden.

But you see the trick. Every time inflation rises, the supply chain crumbles, Afghanistan is a disaster, covid rages on, and the president can’t answer a question – like January 6. Like the machine I used to make counterfeit gift certificates, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

While the 6 was awful, it was obviously pale compared to a typical George Floyd protest night. By the way, have you noticed how the “I word” has disappeared? Where has the “insurrection” gone? Well, it never has been.

In August, Reuters reported that the FBI found little evidence that January 6 was the result of an organized plot to overturn Biden’s victory, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.

Although federal authorities handcuffed around 600 suspected participants, the FBI believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or Trump supporters, according to sources directly involved in the investigations. And you can trust the FBI sources.

Like a plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, they have intimate knowledge because they helped plan it. An official with insider knowledge described the suspects as “ninety to ninety-five percent one-off cases,” adding that there was no big plan to take assault the capital. Meaning – January 6 was as organized as Black Friday shoppers.

Thus, no one has been accused of sedition and / or insurrection. Most have been hit with charges such as “marching”. “Parading” – who knew this was a crime? By the way – it should be. I hate parades. Do you know how embarrassing it is for me to ask another adult if I can sit on their shoulders to watch the floating turkey go by?

But also, it is difficult to call January 6 an insurgency when you refuse to say the same thing about climate activists who are trying to break into the Interior Ministry. But it’s different because it’s the climate.

Meanwhile, Portland, Oregon continues to be assaulted by violent mobs, smashing windows, damaging businesses and buildings. But yeah – Ashlee is a terrorist!

JOY REID: Ashli ​​Babbitt, who was an Air Force specialist, trained by our taxes to kill, she was in the military. If she’d walked through that door, God knows what kind of harm she might have done.

DEAN OBEIDALLAH, MSNBC CHRONICLE: His supporters attacking the Capitol are terrorists. It’s two plus two equals four things, like Ashli ​​Babbitt, everyone who attacked the Capitol is terrorists because the FBI director said it was an act of terrorism.

ERIC SWALWELL: Ashley Babbitt was the woman leading the mob that was about to storm the house floor and she was shot by a brave officer who was the last line of defense for many members of Congress and many of these members were the slowest, least mobile members. If they had been invaded by this crowd, people would have been killed

It’s amazing how much they truly appreciate the death of an unarmed veteran woman. But it’s easy, because it’s not like Ashlee Babbitt is sacred. You see, there is no white victim for them. If MSNBC were there when Kennedy was shot, they would have said his limo was backlit.

But Ms. Babbitt was a Trump supporter. So she wasn’t just shot. It has been erased. Hidden like Mayor Pete during a transportation crisis. Much like the Hunter Laptop story and Couric’s RBG story – the media, Dems, and tech titans decided Babbitt was not an attractive victim. Of course, she broke the law. But maybe the next step shouldn’t be to shoot him down.

But you can see how easy it is to go from calling him a terrorist to calling all the parents involved, terrorists. But the media silence remains scarier than Biden buying mats on eBay. We know that if she was BLM, she would already have a place in her name. But instead, she’s a terrorist – the media colluding with Democrats to turn her into ISIS.

It seems the media have a hard time finding real villains, so they have to make them up.

* Sketch showing a man praising Johnny Carson in an interview, but when the interview airs it is as if the man is praising Ted Bundy. “

It’s funny … We make films about corruption on Wall Street. We make films about corruption in government. And concerning corrupt cops – the last decade has been devoted to taking isolated events of brutality or incompetence and applying them system-wide. If the brush they paint with was any wider, it would be a Kardashian’s ass.

Yet somehow this devotion to uncovering corruption ends there with elections and the media. But you see, it’s media corruption that leads to election corruption. With tech and media colluding to distract from Hunter, China, and Joe.

No wonder Stelter must be so surprised by this. He is one of them. And so as expected, as Biden’s presidency implodes, they cling to Jan.6 – like Leonardo DiCaprio clinging to a plank at the end of Titanic.


Everything to keep the target on the people they hate and protect those they don’t hate. That’s why I was thinking of Couric.

She did us all a favor. She showed us how the sausage is made, and it’s horrible. Maybe that’s why we should stop eating it.
