He isn’t wrong!
During a recent interview with Fox’s Laura Ingraham, Attorney General William Barr expressed frustration for the bias by mainstream media against President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Breitbart, Barr said, “[I]t’s very disappointing because I think the president went out at the beginning of this thing and really was statesmanlike, trying to bring people together, working with all the governors, keeping his patience as he got these snarky gotcha questions from the White House media pool,” Barr stated. “And the stridency of the partisan attacks on him has gotten higher and higher, and it’s really disappointing to see. And the politicization of decisions like hydroxychloroquine has been amazing to me.”
“Before the president said anything about it, there was fair and balanced coverage of this very promising drug, and the fact that it had such a long track record that the risks were pretty well known,” he said. “And as soon as he said something positive about it, the media has been on a jihad to discredit the drug. It’s quite strange.”
