We’re way beyond media bias. They are all-in. The media is the Hillary Clinton campaign staff. There’s not even a pretense of objectivity. It’s so bad, the New York Times had to write a front-page story last weekend talking about how painful it is for real journalists for the first time in their careers out of a sense of duty to adopt an oppositional stance to a candidate. They’ve never done that before, and since they’ve had to do it with Trump, it also looks like they’re pro-Hillary, and they’re so uncomfortable with this!

On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, to his credit, fulminated against anti-Trump MSM reporters who are supposed to write stories down the middle but are instead “openly cheering for Hillary Clinton.” That’s when Donny Deutsch defended media bias, saying that reporters have a “conscience” and that “sometimes there’s no other side to an argument.”

JOE SCARBOROUGH: You now have a lot of people in the press openly—that are supposed to be down the middle—openly cheering for Hillary Clinton in a way that they want to be able to tell their children and grandchildren after it’s over, I did everything I could.

DONNY DEUTSCH: Yeah, conscience.

JOE: Conscience of journalists? They’re not supposed to have conscience —

DEUTSCH: They’re human beings, still. They’re parents.

JOE: You’re supposed to write your stories down the middle, let Ron Fournier and people like Ron Fournier go after, let people like us who get paid to give our opinions go after it. We still need journalists who can do things down the middle dispassionately.

DEUTSCH: But sometimes there’s no other side to an argument. And I think that’s what’s happening here.

Bonus coverage:

DOUCHE: The thing I still think will play against [Trump] is this woman stuff. I have a strange feeling at the debate, there’ll be another name that will come up from Hillary that we haven’t heard or haven’t thought about. I think between now and election day, and the one thing that Trump cannot recover — he recovers from sleaze, he doesn’t recover from the hate stuff. And there’ll be more women stuff to come. And he doesn’t recover from that. I would be shocked if between now and November 8th there are not three or four names of women we haven’t thought about or heard about that articulate the problem that Trump has, as far as misogyny and as far as all across other things.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I think that’s going to be a —

DOUCHE: I think that’s what going to continue to pound him.

Note: Donny Deutsch is not actually a journalist, but the erstwhile Chairman of Deutsch Inc., one of the world's leading advertising agencies.  Come to think of it, is there any dif betwixt  journalism and advertising anymore?  That's right.  No. And the hell of it is; there is no Joseph Goebbels who can have you shot for straying,  so these guys are just die-hard party members.

If MSM "journalists" actually had a conscience rather than a rabid dog ideology, they wouldn't have anything to do with an incompetent, lying criminal (Genitalian, NY) who sold out her country for cash.

Look at their faces. Have you ever noticed Lefties seem to be continuously crapping their pants?

sometimes there’s no other side to an argument.

Here we have the exact moment when the difference between typical Democrat and incontinent imbecile becomes indistinguishable.

Lefties hit every touch stone of True Believes as described by Eric Hoffer. Always on a crusade in an attempt to feel "necessary." *spit*

If you take sides it sucks to be on the wrong one.

As a side note, per Wikipedia, the Donny took over Daddy's company in 1989. So he didn't really build it, he inherited it.
