Kurt Bardella may have left the hallowed halls of the Lincoln Project for the bright lights of the DCCC and the DNC, but in his heart, he will always carry a little piece of the Lincoln Project with him. Namely the chronically intellectually dishonest piece.
Bardella recently wrote an op-ed piece for the L.A. Times regarding Fox News’ decision not to air the circus spectacle that is the January 6 committee hearings. Instead, Fox is going to stick with the regular lineup of right-wing propagandists. And they dare call themselves a news outlet!
Bardella, for one, is sick and tired of MSM outlets continuing to regard Fox News as anything other than “a propaganda vehicle for the GOP.” Fox News needs to be covered by rival outlets accordingly, and so, for that matter, does the entire GOP:
Dear Media Overlords: It is not partisan to use adjectives like “dangerous,” “radical,” “extreme,” “liars,” “wrong,” “violent,” “racists” to describe leaders in the Republican Party.

Of course Kurt discussed it on “The ReidOut.” If anyone needs to be told to be tougher on Fox News and Republicans, it’s Joy Reid.
Yes, it’s about time the media started being hard on Republicans. https://t.co/bbBzukOFam

Is there no end to Kurt Bardella’s stunning bravery?
It's only partisan to use those terms to describe Kurt's fellow Democrats. https://t.co/kygexbNRIn

“It’s not partisan smear the GOP leadership because I’m right and they’re the bad guys” has to be the most echo chambered take I’ve ever seen https://t.co/31s7LPkQgo

A Democratic shill and faux-principled hack living in an echo chamber? Say it ain’t so.
This hack can be as abusive as he likes; readers may approve or not. But when he describes his attacks as “not partisan,” that is a cognitive disorder. https://t.co/eA633zi0KP

If, as a journalist, you're looking to Democratic party activists to tell you what words you're allowed to use, that is the definition of partisan reportage. https://t.co/W6X2Y3CVXK
