Attorney General William Barr is fed up with the lying media and their blatant distortions of the truth to fit their agenda and he is speaking out.
In an interview with conservative website Townhall.com that was published on Friday, the nation’s top law enforcement official lowered the boom on the professional fibbers who masquerade as journalists who he called a “collection of liars.”
Barr is particularly perturbed over the false narrative on the violent riots that erupted across the nation this summer and will intensify if President Trump wins the election.
According to AG Barr:
“Most of the mainstream media. They’re a collection of liars and they know exactly what they’re doing.”
The attorney general’s remarks were his strongest yet in reference to the lying media.
Via Townhall.com, “AG Barr Rips National Media as a ‘Collection of Liars’ Over Riot Coverage”:
“They’re basically a collection of liars. Most of the mainstream media. They’re a collection of liars and they know exactly what they’re doing. A perfect example of that were the riots. Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened group of street fighting radicals and they kept on excluding from their coverage all the video of this and reporting otherwise and they were doing that for partisan reasons, and they were lying to the American people. It wasn’t until they were caught red-handed after essentially weeks of this lie that they even started feeling less timid,”
“The press has dropped, in my view – and I’m talking about the national mainstream media – has dropped any pretense of professional objectivity and are political actors, highly partisan who try to shape what they’re reporting to achieve a political purpose and support a political narrative that has nothing to do with the truth. They’re very mendacious about it,” he continued. “It’s very destructive to our Republic; it’s very destructive to the Democratic system to have that, especially being so monolithic. It’s contributing to a lot of the intensity and partisanship.”
AG Barr finds the media’s white-knighting for ANTIFA which serves as the ultra-violent paramilitary arm of the radicalized Democratic party to be particularly galling and in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, called the group a “ramrod of violence.”
During the often-contentious interview, Barr told the savagely partisan CNN anchor that there were “numerous reports” of agitators traveling to Washington for the purpose of starting a riot during the Republican National Convention.
According to AG Barr:
“They are flying around the country. We know people who are flying around the country. We know where they’re going.”
“I’ve talked to every police chief in every city where there’s been major violence, and they all have identified Antifa as the ramrod for the violence. They are flying around the country. We know people who are flying around the country. We know where they’re going. We know — we see some of the purchases they’re making before the riots of weapons to use in those riots. So, we are following it.”
