It’s not very often; in fact, I can’t ever recall when an acclaimed award-winning journalist publicly announces that one of their industry peers should actually be investigated for a continuous stream of erroneous reporting.
That unprecedented recommendation by New York Post Columnist Mike Goodwin was squarely aimed at the New York Times, however, it could have easily been directed at the Washington Post, the New York Daily News, CNN, MSNBC, along with a laundry list of other leftist publications that have become surrogates of the Democratic Party.
Goodwin’s astute observation in a recent column titled “Trump will prevail over ‘scalp-hunting’ journalists” recounts the TIMES serial failures in reporting accurately numerous issues and events concerning the President.
The New Post reporter and occasional Fox contributor also credits the President’s amazing resilience in dealing with an obsessed and corrupt media, hell-bent on taking him down, and thus far losing miserably, as demonstrated by the recent impeachment folly fabricated by disgruntled Democrats, attempting to use an innocuous phone call as a pretext for high crimes and misdemeanors. Which has only emboldened his supporters, and raised his approval rating among average Americans viewing the sham performance by both the mainstream media along with desperate House Democrats.
House Speaker Pelosi even announced on the day that the House would cast their votes for impeachment, she would wear black, as an indication as to how solemn and serious this rare ritual was.
After the marathon season concluded into the night on Capitol Hill, the President was finally impeached on two articles, along party lines, with three Democrats deflecting away from Pelosi.
However, in Battle Creek, Michigan, a jovial Trump was holding court hosting a “MERRY CHRISTMAS” rally at the Kellogg Arena.
“Michigan is booming thanks to President Trump, and jobs are coming back to the state,” Kayleigh McEnany, national press secretary for Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., said in a press release. “President Trump is delivering on his promises, and he looks forward to celebrating those successes with the great men and women of Michigan this Christmas season.”
Chairman of the Calhoun County Republican Committee Jeannie Burchfield said the local Republican party was beyond thrilled” to have Trump visit.
“Calhoun County is Trump country, for sure…” she said. “This will be a fantastic way for us to show support for the President.”
For those of us watching the split-screen, of the impeachment debate along with the “Christmas” rally, it was apparent that the President to the dismay of the press won the battle of the optics, on this night.
Goodwin no doubt said it best within his column on December 14th.
“Backed by a press corps eager to get Trump, Pelosi felt confident to authorize the flimsy effort to remove the President from office. She assumed media bullhorns would push the public into her camp and that would win her Republican votes for a bipartisan takedown.”
Goodwin continues, “She certainly got the media support, but the public and the GOP aren’t following. Indeed, the harder that Reps. Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler push and the louder the anti-Trump media scream, the more the public resists impeachment over the Ukraine piffle.”
Adding, “That was true even before last week’s sensational revelations that the FBI was both corrupt and incompetent in the Russia collusion probe. The report and testimony by Michael Horowitz, the inspector general of the Justice Department, further undermined impeachment by revealing the rampant misconduct in the earlier case.”
As for the New York Times, Goodwin’s article chronicles a long list of mistakes, errors and willful bias, and just plain sloppy journalism by “The Gray Lady.” One thing is certain, the President was correct when he labeled the TIMES a failing newspaper; ironically however it was he who most likely saved the paper from the brink of bankruptcy, increasing dramatically their downward circulation, thanks to a hostile progressive audience.
