Bias in media is to be expected. It happens every single day, and no one is shocked that they continually cover for Democrats and the left at large. Yet, when something as serious as an on-the-record accusation of domestic abuse happens, you’d think our intrepid journalist class would set aside their political wants for a moment and simply do their jobs.
But, of course, that’s not what happened in regards to the latest revelations about Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock. Last night, Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell video showing bodycam footage of Warnock’s ex-wife after she had called the police on him.
Warnock’s ex-wife: "I’ve been trying to be very quiet about the way he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation. Tried to keep the way he acts under wraps for a long time, and today he crossed a line … He is a great actor. He is phenomenal on putting on a really good show."

Now, I could put all the qualifiers here about how if this were a Republican, it’d be the top story on every single news network and in every major newspaper in the country. And pointing that out would be absolutely correct. But it’s not just that mainstream news outlets aren’t reporting on this with any vigor, it’s that Tucker Carlson had to be the one to expose this in the first place. Why is it left to an opinion host on Fox News to break major news about one of the most consequential Senate races of this cycle? Why did The New York Times or CNN not break this? Are we seriously supposed to believe that they had no knowledge of the video? They knew, and they were actively covering it up, because that’s what they always do.
In fact, here’s the Atlanta Journal-Constitution this morning after the video had already dropped half a day earlier.

Yes, they describe Warnock as “untouched” and having to endure “attacks” literally the morning after a video of his ex-wife accusing him of domestic violence dropped. The disconnect from reality here in a vain attempt to secure a political win is just astonishing.
But it’s not just astonishing. It’s outright evil. To brush aside and ignore domestic violence over partisan wants is probably a new low for the media, though even that is debatable after the last four years of journalistic malpractice and chaos. And to anyone still gnashing their teeth at the description of the news industry as “enemies of the people,” it’s probably time for you to go jump in a lake. These people and their industry have absolutely positioned themselves as outright opponents of decency and truth. Calling them enemies is probably being too kind when you really think about it.
No, they are outright evil, and this latest episode shows that in spades.
