Attorney General William Barr unloaded on the media during an interview with Town Hall on Friday, saying that the media’s dishonesty was highly corrosive to the nation and that most in the industry are liars.
“They’re basically a collection of liars. Most of the mainstream media,” Barr said. “They’re a collection of liars and they know exactly what they’re doing. A perfect example of that were the riots. Right on the street it was clear as day what was going on, anyone observing it, reporters observing it, it could not have escaped their attention that this was orchestrated violence by a hardened group of street fighting radicals, and they kept on excluding from their coverage all the video of this and reporting otherwise, and they were doing that for partisan reasons, and they were lying to the American people. It wasn’t until they were caught red-handed after essentially weeks of this lie that they even started feeling less timid.”
