A Democrat politician is finally openly admitting what conservatives have been saying for a long time, and she may have accidentally hurt her own party’s narrative because of it.
Mainstream Media in the Pocket of Dems
As most of the left continues to claim that the mainstream media is fair and balanced, and Fox News is the only biased media outlet, Democrat Nikki Fried has said the quiet part out loud.
Fried, who is running for Florida governor in an attempt to unseat the most popular governor in the nation, Ron DeSantis, sent out a tweet that caught the eye of media watchdog NewsBusters.
“Ron DeSantis has Fox News, but we have everyone else. Florida will be blue in 2022,” Fried tweeted.
Here’s a screen shot of the tweet in case it gets deleted:
NewsBusters reports: “Now, we at the Media Research Center’s NewsBusters have known this for a while, but it’s not often that a Democrat will just come out and say it: ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post and other outlets are all possessions of the Democratic Party. Democrats know it. Republicans know it. And journalists, if they are honest, know it too.”
Fried has proven her own point through her actions, as she only appears as a frequent guest on outlets that agree with her point of view completely.
On March 31, 2021, she appeared on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show and attacked Governor DeSantis and her own state, saying that she wanted to “apologize to the rest of the country of what happens here in the state of Florida.”
Fried also referred to DeSantis as “not rational,” “egotistical” and “dogmatic.”
On Reid’s morning show on June 27, 2020, the biased left-wing host tossed this a softball question to Fried about DeSantis and Covid, stating: “Commissioner Fried, I want to let you critique your governor’s performance.”
It’s obvious that the mainstream media is in the pocket of the Democrats, and they don’t even try to hide it anymore. Yet, they are still able to claim that they are fair and balanced and free of spin, and Democrat voters just believe them. At least Fried openly admitted it in her tweet.
Conservatives on Twitter were quick to respond to Fried’s admission.
“Thanks for admitting that all other networks are completely biased for Dems. Good job,” Chicks On The Right tweeted.
