Media lying about McConnell to help save face for Chuck Schumer
Chuck Schumer has a huge
problem, but his friends in the mainstream media are pitching in to help –
with lies. Now that he has caved in on the Schumer Shutdown, the radicals
that dominate his party are angry and demanding protection for the DACA illegal
immigrants, and Schumer has promised to oppose funding the border wall that he
had earlier discussed supporting in return for action in DACA.
But instead of reporting on the
disarray among the Democrats, the narrative just has to be that the evil
Republicans engaged in perfidy. For example, Alexander Bolton of The
Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.), who
vowed last week to vote against any spending bill that didn’t help young
immigrants facing deportation, on Tuesday waved away talk of another shutdown
if the immigration talks promised by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)
stall next month.
“We’re not talking in those terms.
We’re talking in positive terms,” Durbin said. “Moving forward with the
promised procedure from Sen. McConnell.”
McConnell “promised” to bring to a
vote an immigration bill? He never used that term. He said it was
his "intention." He was very careful in his language -- much
more careful than Democrats and journalists (but I repeat myself).
"Intention" is meaningless,
but Democrats will say McConnell lied.
In another piece from The
Hill, Jordain Carney accurately quotes McConnell:
Should these issues not be resolved
by the time the funding bill before us expires on Feb. 8, 2018, assuming
the government remains open, it would be my intention to proceed to legislation
that would address DACA, border security and related issues," McConnell said on
Sunday night, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
Yet MSM journalists (here
and here and
and here) and
activists at Think
Progress rephrased McConnell’s words as a “promise.” They are following the
lead of Schemer Schumer, rephrasing it as a promise. At least the Huffington
Post (!) is honest about Schumer and others In the media lying about what
McConnell actually said.
This fake news is intended to sow
distrust of McConnell among populists and some Republicans and set him
up, should he not bring up the issue, for the media propagating the false
narrative that Republicans are lying about bringing up DACA by the first week
Fake, Fake, Fake.
Paraphrasing Groucho Marx's immortal
question: Who ya gonna believe, the media or your own eyes?
