I don't understand a few things. I don't understand how a man who has trouble comprehending speech can become a senator and have the rules changed so he can wear a hoodie and shorts to work. And I don't understand how people like Jennifer Rubin and Max Boot and Philip Bump are paid big money by national newspapers for writing the same column over and over. We've done a lot of posts on Bump lately, like when he bolted from a podcast when asked about President Joe Biden's obvious influence peddling. He's one of those "no direct evidence" guys. I don't understand how he doesn't embarrass himself.
For his new piece, Bump goes back a month to a segment on Fox News to now claim that Fox "accidentally" aired a rebuttal of their claims about Biden.
About a month ago, Fox gave airtime to a fired Ukrainian prosecutor who made non-credible claims about Joe Biden.— Philip Bump (@pbump) September 25, 2023
On Sunday, they (probably accidentally) gave airtime to a pointed rebuttal of those claims. https://t.co/Wihmc0BmLr
Who can reply? People @pbump follows or mentioned can reply. Stunning and brave.
As a professional journalist, Mr. Bump is careful to disable replies, important for preserving the MSM's intended role as a one-way conduit of "information." https://t.co/8Ll8q3UTeN— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) September 25, 2023
Mr. Bump seems to view his job as gaslighting Americans until Biden escapes scot-free from multiple corruption scandals. That the @washingtonpost pays him to do this shows the contempt they have for their readers.— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) September 25, 2023
At this point we can safely say people who read the WaPo aren’t seeking out accurate reporting but rather are merely endeavoring to have their preexisting worldview reinforced.— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) September 25, 2023
Philip remains on his primary beat: downplaying any evidence that makes Joe Biden look bad https://t.co/jlnr6DZnFT— Sunny McSunnyface (@sunnyright) September 25, 2023
Phil knows he's irredeemably worthless to half the country so he really has to suck up to the other half. https://t.co/Uab5gQZKSp— Small Gov Lizard (@smallgovlizard) September 25, 2023
Pershenko is beyond corrupt.— @TrickyDickPol (@trickydickpol) September 25, 2023
Which of course @pbump doesn’t want you to know. He wants you to think Pershenko is some “beacon of truth.”
When reality Pershenko claiming someone is “bad” generally means they were the opposite and went after corruption.https://t.co/o5DatdDMlU https://t.co/Ofx3FOHAL8
I know its confusing for you. It's called "journalism" you should look it up. https://t.co/pWIfZcmZT0— The Government sucks at everything (@backtobasicsplz) September 25, 2023
Giving airtime to a "pointed rebuttal" is actually called "journalism" Philip, you should try it some time. https://t.co/WFCNFdajG9— Usually Right (@normouspenis) September 25, 2023
Even Fox News reported both sides of the story (probably accidentally), something Bump would know nothing about.
Unlock the replies you gutless hack. https://t.co/SMH7kv9Hph— NotQualityJournalism (@journalism_not) September 25, 2023
Pretend journalist writes more bullshit https://t.co/TpEfuQXVmt— Mark Adams (@banjoandpete) September 25, 2023
Bump isn't a journalist, he's an "analyst." Which is the same as a spin doctor. Much braver journalists than Bump have pinned down Karine Jean-Pierre on Biden's corruption. There's such a mountain of evidence now that the rest of the press can't ignore it anymore. But Bump can.
