They thought they could trick him.
They never expected his response.
Now, William Barr revealed this one secret CNN was trying to hide.
William Barr did not waste words in a recent interview with CNN’s “Situation Room” host Wolf Blitzer this past Wednesday.
The interview covered a variety of topics, but Barr specifically countered his points on mail-in ballot fraud, shootings involving officers, and China’s potential attempts to control the 2020 Presidential election.
But the most interesting conversation involved their opinions on media bias.
Obviously, Blitzer claimed the media had no bias, but Barr shut him down quickly and effectively.
Blitzer began by asking if Barr would like to continue in his job as Attorney General if Trump is elected to a second term.
In addition, he brought up Barr’s time as Attorney General during George H.W. Bush’s administration.
He was clearly trying to get Barr to pit one President against another and claim things were better under President Bush than President Trump.
But Barr refused to engage those questions.
Instead, his response put Blitzer in his place.
Below is a transcript of a section of the interview:
“BLITZER: Are you enjoying what you’re doing?
BARR: I wouldn’t use the word enjoy. But it’s satisfying.
BLITZER: It’s not what you anticipated. You enjoyed it more the first time around when you were attorney general?
BARR: Well, political climate and the media was a lot different. And so —
BLITZER: And you got a different president, George H.W. Bush, you were the attorney general.
BARR: Yes. But the media should be fair and balanced no matter who the president is. [It] doesn’t give the media license to lie the way a lot of the media is.
BLITZER: I can speak for us, we are fair and balanced.
BARR: OK. [laughs]
BLITZER: I’m sure you would appreciate that.
Blitzer truly tried to get away with saying that CNN is “fair and balanced.”
There is almost too much evidence to support the contrary.
Additionally, Barr’s reaction to that statement illustrate how ridiculous he thinks it is.
Sister Toldjah, from the blog RedState, said this about Barr:
“In fact, Barr’s reactions during this segment – especially when Blitzer laughably claimed CNN was “fair and balanced”, were both classic and priceless,”
The fact that Blitzer made that statement demonstrates that he does not truly watch CNN’s content.
CNN has been nothing but biased, especially when it comes to politics.
To them, the Democrats and protesters can do no wrong while Trump is a literal scourge upon the earth.
Recently, they released a broadcast with a picture of a city on fire and the title “Mostly Peaceful Protests After Police Shootings.”
The burning hellscape behind the reporter said anything but “peaceful.”
While it was satisfying to see Barr put CNN in their place, it is doubtful they will change anytime soon.
