Ari Fleischer: The Problem With Journalism Today Is Reporters Believe In Subjectivity More Than Objectivity

Fox News contributor and former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer joins Fox Across America With Jimmy Failla to discuss why he thinks a large portion of today’s mainstream media has an obvious Left-wing bias.

“There’s a real problem with younger reporters because they don’t believe as much as their older colleagues do in objectivity. They believe in subjectivity, and they believe their job in journalism is to move the needle, and to move it in a Leftist direction, certainly not a free market or conservative or pro-life direction. And that’s what journalism has become. And, there’s just so many stories they got wrong. CNN led the league in the number of retracted stories they had to take off the air. But remember the story in The New York Times about Russia secretly offering Afghan militants bounties to kill U.S. troops? That was wrong. Katy Tur at MSNBC reported that Kim Jong-un was brain dead, the North Korean leader. That was wrong. They were they told the American people Nicholas Sandmann was a thug and Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist. All wrong. And they said COVID could not possibly have originated in a lab in China. I mean, how much deceptive, wrong information beyond the Steele dossier, beyond collusion, do they put on the air without recognizing they’re a part of America’s problem? In fact, one of the biggest problems we have in the country is the way the mainstream media do their job.”
