Media Freak Out After Trump Over-Performance in Forum
NYT calls for moderator ‘fact check’ after
Lauer sins by allowing candidates to speak

Clearly, the mainstream media is panicking about Clinton’s drop in the polls. They’re lashing out at each other. The Post is mad at The Times, and everyone has decided that Lauer is the problem. Lauer’s own employers are calling his performance a “disaster.”




The biggest news to come out of Wednesday night’s candidate forum was not anything said by either Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton or Republican nominee Donald Trump.

No, the biggest story of the night was how NBC hot Matt Lauer allegedly failed at his job as a journalist. Lauer, who has been a journalist since 1979, who has co-hosted The Today Show since 1997, who was live during the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, and who has won numerous Emmy awards for his coverage.

“There will be many issues to explore at the three presidential debates,” the board wrote. “For the sake of the nation, the moderators need to be fully prepared to challenge the candidates, so voters can have a clear picture of how they will lead.”
Suddenly, Lauer is garbage, no better—in the eyes of the mainstream media—than some basement-dwelling right-wing blogger.

His sin? He allowed Trump to speak during the candidate forum, and didn’t press the Republican presidential nominee on his answers to the liking of the liberal media. This morning, I detailed the extent of the hate being spewed against Lauer by his colleagues in the mainstream media.

And it’s not letting up. The New York Times editorial board wrote on Friday that moderators should do more than ask questions and let candidates answer—they should engage in rigorous (probably NYT-approved) fact checking.

And it’s not letting up. The New York Times editorial board wrote on Friday that moderators should do more than ask questions and let candidates answer—they should engage in rigorous (probably NYT-approved) fact checking.

The editorial board breathlessly praised Clinton’s performance, and her “firm understanding of the complex issues facing the country.” Yet it derided Lauer for focusing so much attention on her email scandal (which the NYT broke). The mainstream media wants Clinton’s email story to go away, clearly.

Also on Friday, The Washington Post editorial board wrote an article titled: “The Hillary Clinton email story is out of control.” The crux of their argument is that the email scandal—in which Clinton either purposefully or incompetently mishandled classified information, making it likely U.S. secrets were hacked by foreign governments—is much ado about nothing.

Clearly, the mainstream media is panicking about Clinton’s drop in the polls. They’re lashing out at each other. The Post is mad at The Times, and everyone has decided that Lauer is the problem. Lauer’s own employers are calling his performance a “disaster.”

It seems obvious they’re all just upset that Trump hasn’t said or done anything to take the heat off of Clinton’s two weeks of bad news coverage. Previously, whenever bad news broke for Clinton, Trump was there to say or do something outrageous that would suck up attention and allow Clinton to skate scrutiny. That has changed since Kellyanne Conway became campaign manager, Steve Bannon of Breitbart News became campaign CEO, and Jamestown Associates (full disclosure: a group I am collaborating with on a documentary) took over communications.

Desperate to hold up their historically terrible candidate (second only to Trump himself), the media is now using Lauer as a scapegoat and sending a warning to debate moderators that if they don’t step in and do everything they can to sink Trump’s candidacy, they will be pariahs in their profession.

But we saw the disasters that ensue when journalists step in to help a particular candidate. In 2012, Candy Crowley helped President Obama during a debate against Mitt Romney. Romney said it took Obama two weeks to call the Benghazi, Libya attacks an “act of terror.” Obama said he called them that the next day. Crowley stepped in to say that Obama was correct—but the moment was debated in the following days. [FULL]

"The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation:
The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. And all this comes even as Clinton has had a terrible week—arguably her worst week ever, as the billowing smoke of financial scandal clouds herself and her family."

I've never been a fan of Lauer's. I think he did a fantastic, even handed job the other night. He is taking heat from the libs, cause he hammered hilster with follow up questions, especially regarding her emails.

He usually interviews libs from the kneeling position on the Today show. He didn't do that the other night.

This is the equivalent of complaining about the refs in game one of a seven game series. You are trying to get in their head and get the calls you want for the rest of the way. This is a warning from the MSM that they expect these things to go a certain way. I expect from here on they will.

Old Bill Clinton is acting a bit off these days. Some say it is because he wanted to loose weight so he could still pick up chicks and start and became a vegetarian. The downside is he is starting to show symptoms of a vitamin B-12 deficiency, then again he just may be a turd.

Yeah, he wanted to loose weight. That's what he wanted to do. I guess he wanted to be on "America's Biggest Looser."

Do you have a tattoo that says "Born to Loose"?
Do you ever say "Finders keepers, loosers weepers"?
