Dan Gainor: Mueller testimony a disaster for anti-Trump media 7 examples of media failures
Fox News ^ | July 28, 2019 | Dan Gainor

In 1969, psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross wrote that there are five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Fifty years later, anti-Trump journalists have been experiencing the first four simultaneously since Wednesday, when former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified before two House committees.

The Trump-hating media can’t come to terms with the final stage – acceptance of their grief. And that will elude them even if President Trump is reelected and stays in the White House until 2025.

Journalists wrote and broadcast countless stories saying Hillary Clinton would defeat Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Many have never been able to accept Trump’s victory. They were counting on Mueller to overturn the election results by giving Congress clear and convincing evidence that would lead to Trump’s impeachment and removal from office.

On Wednesday, those hopes were dashed. Even though many in the media can’t stand Trump, their reaction to Mueller’s testimony was somewhere between downbeat and outright mockery.

Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi said that “the Democrats’ decision to put former Special Counsel Robert Mueller under oath was a catastrophe.”

MSNBC analyst Jeremy Bash described Mueller as “boring,” “sort of evasive” and “lost at times.” Hardly a star witness to wish upon.

CNN “Situation Room” host Wolf Blitzer said Mueller gave “a shaky performance.”

And CNN Senior Justice Correspondent Evan Perez said that “Mueller essentially muddied the waters a lot today.”

CNN’s “Reliable Sources” newsletter had a major meltdown, with media reporter Brian Stelter asking, “Why is there not more outrage?” He began the newsletter with Pinocchio images and complained that “advocating for facts gets you labeled ‘fake news.’”

Trump got the last laugh, posting a video Friday of several media reactions calling the hearings a “disaster” and generally admitting the hearings had been a failure for Democrats.

Takeaways from Robert Mueller’s testimony:

Former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, at long last, testified before Congress about his investigation into Russian interference and President Trump’s conduct related to it.

Mueller appeared before the House Judiciary Committee in the morning and the House Intelligence Committee in the afternoon.

Here’s what we learned from both sessions:

They embraced and agitated for FRAUD. They, and Mueller, and Nadler, and the Jihad Squad, all belong at the end of a rope. Thanks jazusamo.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do
Fate is kind

That and I have a very nice bridge for sale in NYC!!!

If Democrats failed to convince the nation with their “TV spectacle,” it must be the fault of … conservative media. “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd used the hearing as a way of slamming right-wing media for not being left-wing. “The fact is we are living in this 21st century new type of asymmetrical media warfare that we’re in,” Todd said. “And you have a propaganda machine on the right. And that’s what it is. Is a full-fledged propaganda machine on the right that the Democrats haven’t figured out how to combat very well yet.”

LOL Chuck Todd is an idiot.

The left has every newspaper except one, every major news magazines, 98% of Hollywood, every network news anchor, every Sunday Morning News Shows anchors, NPR stations in every radio market with taxpayer support and PBS in every major market - with taxpayer support...

The right has half of Fox News...

Get a clue Chuck Todd...
