One of the journalists whose investigative reporting brought a president down recognizes that the U.S. is deeply divided – but Carl Bernstein thinks Fox News is mostly to blame.
Bernstein and fellow Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward broke the Watergate story that took down President Richard Nixon in the 1970s. On CNN over the weekend, Bernstein acknowledged that the media is struggling to document the deep divides in America.
“We are in the midst of a cold civil war in this country – a political and cultural civil war. And all of our reporting is taking place in the context of that cold civil war,” he said, adding that one of CNN’s competitors is to blame.
“… Fox has changed American politics as perhaps no institution has. Since its invention in 1996, our politics has been changed inalterably by this right-wing counterforce, whatever you want to call Fox News.”
Don Irvine of Accuracy in Media says Fox News may indeed have given America a different voice in the newsroom, but he argues that the mainstream media is so upset these days because Trump is going around them.
“From the get-go with Trump, the way he started with the media relations, he decided that the media is not going to be his filter for his message – and this has just thrown them into upheaval,” Irvine tells OneNewsNow.
“They can’t figure out how they’re going to get back and try to get the control back over the message and become the filter for everyone, because Trump has just turned this whole thing upside down.”
Irvine counters Bernstein’s argument about the country being in a “cold civil war” by suggesting that most Americans have more basic concerns.
“They’re looking at jobs and taxes and how their life is going,” says the AIM chairman. “There’s a lot of stuff that happens here in DC. [But] all this fighting from the media? That’s well beyond anything that really affects them in their daily lives.”
To prove his point, Irvine wonders how many Americans have personally witnessed any of the anti-Trump protests. He says unless they live in a major city, on the East or West Coast, or in a college town, the only thing most Americans probably know about a “cold civil war” is what they see or read in the media.
The left and the media is really hoping for another civil war in this country. CNN has been trying to instigate one ever since Trump took office with their continuous assault of fake news stories. Today, the cat slipped out of the bag when washed up Democrat Wapo hack Karl Bernstein declared the country is in the middle of a cold, civil war.
| CNN: We are in a cold civil war in this country
Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” journalist and network contributor Carl Bernstein said the difference between the investigations into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and the Watergate era was the country is “in the midst of a cold civil war.”
Bernstein said, “The difference between Watergate and now, one of the big differences is that we are in the midst of a cold civil war in this country, a political and cultural civil war.”
Of course, no one actually saw this live as no one watches CNN or pays attention to washed up hack Bernstein. I’ll say this for liberal Democrats though trying to instigate a civil war in this country. You are not only badly out armed, but out-manned too. Your antifa lefitst rioters wouldn’t stand a chance in a real civil war, and they’re the best you got. I don’t think trannies or environmental whack jobs would be on the front lines for liberals in a civil war.
