Media Narrative on Pelosi Attack is ‘Morally Outrageous’: Experts
By John Ransom | November 3, 2022
In an election year that has Democrats often using the “extremist” label on the GOP to distract from the country’s economic problems, experts say that the rush by mainstream media to blame “right-wing extremism” for the attack on the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calf.), has actually harmed the Democrats,
The attack, coming as early voting and mail-in ballots were coming in for the midterm elections, allowed the liberal establishment media to almost happily lunge at the chance to paint Republicans as extremists, said Adam Guillette, president of Accuracy in Media, one the nation’s oldest conservative media watchdogs.
“I think it’s morally outrageous when journalists celebrate tragedies like this, which, is exactly how some of them reported this story,” Guillette told The Epoch Times.
“You almost felt like some of these journalists saw this as a political opportunity to score points in the final days of the election. And in reality, it’s just a terrible story about a deranged man,” he added.
