Meghan McCain Throws Tantrum Over ‘Liberal Media’ Bias
Meghan McCain, a host of ABC’s The View, complained on Wednesday about the supposed “liberal bias” in the news and falsely claimed that she is the only conservative woman in mainstream media.
“I am the token conservative in media, in mainstream media, the only conservative woman in all of media, and the reason why is there is a token is because the mainstream media only feels like there needs to be one on a show like this, that one person out of five represented means there’s enough conservative media coverage,” McCain said, referring to The View.
There are, of course, numerous conservative female news anchors and television hosts.
McCain suggested that her show should cover stories that have no basis in reality simply because right-wingers wish them to be true.
“What I have found interesting in what I consider working in liberal media is not the stories we talk about, but the stories that we don’t talk about. We never talked about Hunter Biden as a hot topic on this show whereas Ivanka Trump or Donald Trump, Jr. cough in the wrong direction and it probably would have taken up the first two blocs,” she said, before defending Fox News and its history of misleading its viewers.
McCain alluded to the fact that her husband, Ben Domenech, founded The Federalist, as if that has anything to do with what is or is not true.
“Everything else is liberal everywhere else. There’s a reason why Fox is killing it in the ratings and laps everyone else. It’s because it seems like it’s rigged every place else. You think Jim Acosta isn’t an activist? I don’t have any trust in people on CNN,” McCain blubbered.
“I take such umbrage at this entire concept that liberal media which runs all of media, all of tech, all of entertainment, all of music, all three branches of government, I’m supposed to feel bad that Fox News has like, two things that have been inaccurate? I mean let’s go down the list of things on CNN and NBC that are inaccurate,” said McCain.
