As Twitchy reported, NBC News’ Chuck Todd is upset that people are “trying to tar all media” after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office took the unprecedented step Friday of disputing in a statement BuzzFeed’s big scoop on President Trump and Michael Cohen that had contributors talking impeachment all day long on the cable news channels.
If you’d read Twitchy for any length of time, you’re aware of the running “conservatives pounce” joke — whenever a liberal does something wrong, the media’s story is always how conservatives “pounced” (or “seized”) on it, not the original offense itself.
So today’s prize goes to The Hill, which stretched out a little and went with “pound.”

Conservatives? One reporter said passing along BuzzFeed’s bogus reporting via social media had kept him up all night with anguish. But did he pounce on BuzzFeed? Not really. Only conservatives pounce (or pound).
Typo. You hacks should have went with the time-honored "POUNCE!!!"

So not @BuzzFeed and media rebuked over Cohen report by Mueller team, it's "Conservatives pound…" because that's the 'real story' I guess

another “conservatives pounce” story🙄

It’s spelled “pounce”.
The meme is “Republicans Pounce”.
If you’re going to mindlessly protect the left’s misdeeds by focusing on conservatives’ responses to the misdeeds at least get the wording right.

Seriously with your biased headlines

Your friendly reminder people:
When conservatives screw up, the screw up is the story.
When liberals (including the media) screw up, conservative reaction to the screw up is the story.

Only conservatives? Why aren't you "pounding" @BuzzFeed? Shouldn't everyone care about shoddy, biased reporting?
— David Ross (@djross95) January 19, 2019
Anyone with any sense should be pounding Buzzfeed. Are you saying conservatives are the only people with any sense?
— Rick Braun (@rickyb_sports) January 19, 2019
Everyone should be pouncing. BuzzFeed isn't the only ones either. They just got publicly busted. Sadly, journalism has become a propaganda arm of political parties and their agenda's on both sides. They have sold their soul to a machine that will consume them-

The media hasn't done its job to pound Buzzfeed. They will forgive them and continue to expect people to see them as credible. The silence on the part of publications is disgusting.
— TTP (@ThirdPositioner) January 19, 2019
EVERYONE should be pounding BuzzFeed News over this report! They committed journalistic malpractice!
— Tyler 🙏🌧⬇️🌍 (@TCoop6231) January 19, 2019
Oh,and the comments here. These people are delusional. That's how these so called "journalists " keep getting away with this crap.
— Pam D (@lifebythecreek) January 19, 2019
Yes, there’s plenty of parsing of Mueller’s statement where he said BuzzFeed’s report was inaccurate but not necessarily wrong, you see. Keep hope alive!
Conservatives POUNCE! Oliver Darcy DRAAAAGS Marc Lamont Hill for anti-Semitic comments … JUST KIDDING https://t.co/PAoiSXRORS
