We usually say this in jest, but you could actually knock us over with a feather right now. Today on “The View,” an exchange between Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar about the Covington controversy shined a blinding spotlight on the media’s transformation from reporters to activists:
Whoopi Goldberg on the media smearing the Covington Catholic boys: "So many people admitted they made snap judgments before all these other facts came in. … Why is that? Why do we keep making the same mistake?"
Joy Behar: "Because we’re desperate to get Trump out of office." pic.twitter.com/wlwwaxfZRx

We’ve known for some time that this is the media’s mission; it’s just incredibly rare for them to straight-up admit it.

I think that’s the most honest statement to ever leave that mouth..

We’ll take what we can get.
And I assume Behar speaks on behalf of the MSM. https://t.co/hcWgbMXdkT

Hey, it’s only fair, right?
They are unwittingly admitting to everything we already know about them. Wild wild stuff.

The ends justifies the means. At least they admit it.

The media know what they're doing and why but they don't change their behavior. It's willful. https://t.co/yaU72wKycY

Behar admits it. They will do anything. Smear anyone. Destroy anyone. Because of politics. https://t.co/yXBbTnq43t
