Leading Democrat makes shocking media demands that violate Constitutional rights

The Radical Left does not care about the rights of Americans. But this new violation has shocked everyone.

And a leading Democrat has made shocking media demands that violate Constitutional rights.

In an incendiary rant this week, Democrat strategist James Carville took aim at the legacy media, urging them to adopt an even more biased approach in their reporting on former President Donald Trump.

Carville’s comments came in response to a recent statement by New York Times executive editor Joe Kahn, who asserted that the newspaper aims to maintain fairness and avoid becoming “a propaganda arm for a single candidate.”

“People say Trump is going to be the Republican nominee and we got to cover it, and Biden’s the Democratic nominee and we cover this. And if there’s something bad about Biden, of course, we’ve got to print it,” Carville said on Thursday.

“But if something comes up that is, can’t say good about Trump, but more favorable to him, like the Elie Honigs and the Fareed Zakarias of the world, that’s one way to look at it. We just tell the truth and let the people decide. Or, at times when the country is in great peril or the moral imperative is so significant, you don’t do that.”

Carville’s remarks reveal a deep-seated belief among some on the left that traditional journalistic standards should be abandoned in favor of more openly partisan coverage.

This sentiment starkly contrasts with the principles of objective journalism, which aim to provide balanced and unbiased reporting so the public can make informed decisions.

Carville lambasted Kahn for suggesting that The New York Times should strive for impartiality. “Now you have Joe Kahn, the new editor or publisher, whatever he is at The New York Times, saying, ‘We’re just going to cover this down the middle. We’re going to cover what it is,’” Carville continued.

“I don’t think that’s the role of the news media at a time when the entire Constitution is in peril. I don’t have anything against slanted coverage. I really don’t … I would have something against it at most other times in American history, but not right now. F*** your objectivity. The real objectivity in this country right now is we’re either going to have a Constitution or we’re not.”

The Democrat strategist’s outburst underscores the extreme polarization in American politics, where the mainstream media is increasingly seen not as impartial observers but as active participants in the political arena.

Carville’s call for more biased coverage reflects a growing desperation among Democrats who view the Trump movement as an existential threat.

Carville also criticized the media’s coverage of the criminal charges against President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and the alleged bias of the judge in Trump’s Manhattan criminal trial.

“I can’t tell you that these are bad people. They’re extremely naive people who have no idea what’s at stake in this election,” he said.

“So I think we need slanted coverage, more slanted coverage, and I think we got to recognize the threat that this guy and the MAGA, not just him, the entire MAGA movement, from Alito and Trump on down is a serious, clear and present danger to the existence of the Constitution in the United States. And I mean that.”

Carville’s remarks are emblematic of the broader strategy employed by many on the left: to delegitimize Trump and his supporters by any means necessary, including the abandonment of journalistic objectivity.

This approach has led to a media landscape where bias is not just tolerated but encouraged, as long as it serves the perceived greater good of combating Trump and the MAGA movement.

Such a strategy, however, is fraught with risks. By openly advocating for biased coverage, Carville and others undermine the credibility of the media and erode public trust in journalism.

This erosion of trust is dangerous, as it can lead to a public that is increasingly skeptical of all news sources, making it harder for citizens to distinguish between fact and propaganda.

Moreover, the call for biased reporting ignores the fact that many Americans are deeply concerned about the very issues Carville dismisses.

The criminal charges against Hunter Biden, for instance, are seen by many as a legitimate matter of public interest, not merely a distraction.

Similarly, concerns about judicial bias and the integrity of the legal system are not confined to one side of the political spectrum.

James Carville’s call for the media to abandon objectivity in favor of more openly partisan coverage reflects a dangerous trend in American politics.
