Sean Davis: Media collusion coverage was an ‘absolute catastrophe’


GREAT TO SEE YOU TONIGHT.>>THE PLEASURE IS MINE.>>Tucker: SEAN DAVIS IS THE COFOUNDER OF THE FEDERALIST COMPANY JUST WROTE A GREAT PIECE DESCRIBING THE COLLUSION DEBACLE AS A CATASTROPHIC MEDIA FAILURE AND EVEN THAT MAY BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT. IF YOU’RE HAPPY TO HAVE HIM JOIN US TONIGHT. AS YOU WROTE THIS PIECE YOU OBVIOUSLY COLLECTED WHAT YOU BEEN WATCHING AND THINKING ABOU ABOUT. HOW BIG WAS YOUR CONCLUSION WITH THE MAGNITUDE OF THESE GREW UP HERE?>>THIS IS PROBABLY THE BIGGEST, MOST CONSEQUENTIAL SCREWUP OF THE LAST 25 OR 50 YEARS. IT IS DIFFICULT TO REALLY COMPREHEND OR OVERSTATE THE DAMAGE THAT THE MEDIA DID TO THE COUNTRY INTO THEIR OWN REPUTATION TO THE CONSTITUTION. THIS WAS AN ABSOLUTE CATASTROPH CATASTROPHE.>>Tucker: I DON’T KNOW ANY — I KNOW LIBERALS WOULD FEEL THAT WAY. I DON’T KNOW ANYBODY RUNNING A MEDIA ORGANIZATION ON THE LEFT WHO WAS COMMITTING TO ADMIT IT. THE EDITOR TO “THE WASHINGTON POST” AND JEFF ZUCKER OF CNN, ALL BRAGGING ABOUT WHAT A GREAT JOB THEY DID. HOW COULD THEY SAY THAT?>>I WOULDN’T SAY, THEY WERE GIVEN PULITZERS? THEY WERE SHOWERED WITH ADULATION BY THEIR PEERS AND ABLE TO PAT EACH OTHER ON THE BACK AND TELL THEM THAT THEY WERE HEROES. THAT THEY’RE GOING TO BRING DOWN THE NEXT PRESIDENT AND HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE. THERE IS NO INCENTIVE IN THE MEDIA FOR THEM TO HAVE GONE THIS RIGHT. ALL THE INCENTIVES THE WRONG DIRECTION, VIEWERSHIP OR IDEOLOGY. THERE WAS NO REASON FOR THEM TO GET THIS RIGHT.>>Tucker: THE MUELLER REPORT COMES OUT SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND THE NEXT DAY SHOWS CNN AND MSNBC DROP BY AS MUCH AS 50% VIEWERSHIP, JUST ON THE NEWS. DOES THAT TELL YOU EVERYTHING ABOUT THEIR INCENTIVE TO PRETEND THAT THERE IS COLLUSION? THEIR AUDIENCE GOES AWAY WITHOUT IT.>>ABSOLUTELY AND WE SAW THE REACTION, A CHILDREN WHINING OF THE TOOTH FAIRY ISN’T REAL. THEIR BREAD AND BUTTER IN THE AGE OF TRUMP IS TO RATCHET UP THE HYSTERIA TO GET PEOPLE COMPLETELY FREAKED OUT SO THEY FEEL THEY HAVE TO WATCH THE NEWS EVERY DAY AND EVERY MINUTE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING ON. THEY DID A HUGE DISSERVICE TO THEIR COUNTRY.>>Tucker: IT IS HARD TO KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT IN THIS ENVIRONMENT. I MEAN, WHEN THE SMOKE CLEARS AND TRUMP IS GONE OR WHATEVER HAPPENS IN THE NEXT TEN YEARS. WHERE’D YOU GO FOR NEWS? WILL ANYONE EVER BELIEVE CNN ASSUMING IT STILL EXISTS FOR “THE WASHINGTON POST” OR “THE NEW YORK TIMES”? HOW COULD YOU?>>THAT IS THEIR PROBLEM. THEY DIDN’T JUST DESTROY THEIR OWN REPUTATIONS. FOR ALL THE TALK THAT DONALD TRUMP HAS ERODED AND DAMAGED HER VITAL NORMS AND INSTITUTIONS. IT IS THE MEDIA WHO LET IT CREDENCE TO HIS CHARGE. IT IS THE MEDIA THEMSELVES WHO BROADCAST EVERYONE, YOU DON’T NEED TO TRUST US. WE ARE NOT TRUSTWORTHY. I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY COME BACK FROM THIS.>>Tucker: IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE CALLED A LIAR THAN STOP

  1. Facts and evidence, have never bothered the dnc,,,, they will say the opposite and get away with it, with collusion with the media.

  2. Obama is responsible for this travesty. This was their insurance policy, an attempt to over throw a duly elected president. Treason.

  3. If you guys could look on my past post on all these sites when this first broke you'll see I called this from day one .. first off I said he staged it all before it came out and then when he got charged I said he would walk away with all charges dropped guess I was right both times and I'll tell you something else that am 100% correct on is Harris and Booker were the reason for all of it. He was going to snitch on both of them if he was going to jail and get charged with the felonies. They are the ones who whitewashed it.. and fox you disabled the comments on your video's on this shows alot about your character and your pissing alot of ppl off tread lightly my freind

  4. What do you “patriots” expect the media to do over the past two years? When your boy lied throught the 2016 campaign about his contacts with Russia. Why would trump lie about Russia? When Flynn lied about his contacts with…Russia. Why in January would Pence go on Sunday TV and lie saying nobody in the campaign had any contact with Russians? Why would Jeff Sessions — who was about to be Attorney Gen. — lie to his own Senate colleagues about having contact with the Russians?

    What should the press have done when all trump’s closest aids, all the people flying on the plane with him, when all the lies were flying out of their mouths? Report on horse farms in Tennessee?

    Why did George Papadapolous lie to the FBI and go to jail? What about Manafort —trump’s National Security Advisor for patriots’ sake— his lying to the FBI? And trumps campaign manager, lying. And then when talking to the FBI get caught lying AGAIN!! Gates, Trump’s second in command behind Manafort gets caught lying to the FBI. And the guy trump knew the longest —Stone— caught lying …about what, bowling? Best place to get sangria in San Diego? RUSSIANS!!! Lying about Russians.

    Maybe the mainstream media should have just looked the other way when idiot son No. 1, Donny jr. met with a bunch of RUSSIANS who said they were going to give him dirt on Clinton, “…I LOVE IT!” Just shrug it off?

    Just because you suck up to your trump follower friends, because you’re a worshiper in the church of trump, just because you have sold out your integrity to a personality cult DON’T KNOCK THE MEDIA FOR DOING THEIR FCU*KEN JOB …RIGHT. They’re gonna continue doing it!

    Your boy can keep lying, you can keep suckering for it while he takes away health care and working class tax cuts and infrastructure programs, and fcu*ks over our allies, fcu*ks around over a wall Mexico was going to pay for, that the Republicans wouldn’t even pay for when they owned Washington. That YOU ARE GOING TO PAY FOR!

    Keep lying, keep covering for him. You’re delusional. BE ashamed of yourself. BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF.

    Oh, thats right, whatabout Hitlery’s emails?

  5. Remember CNN waiting outside Stone's house no doubt informed by the FBI or Democrats "inside each others pockets", this is where the problem is. Obama's FBI and Democrats and mainstream media wanting to believe.

  6. Any Jussie Smollett Fox News reports have cancelled their comments on YOutube. Why? Post your comments on that show here!

  7. We would be foolish to believe that the fake media can’t rebound from this event. That would be to deny the substantive number of libtards that exist for the primary purpose of devouring leftist vomit.

  8. No evidence of collusion. Ok. How about the six Trump advisors indicted on various charges? He is a dishonest, dishonorable man. His tenure as president will be marked by endless investigations. Why? Because anybody with half a brain realizes that this guy doesn’t care about anything or anyone but himself. He was a liberal most of his life. He’s USING you. Wake up.

  9. Tucker, Why has no one, at least the things I have read, NEVER said ANYTHING about the rest of the world! Does she think that the USA controls, or is responsible for the climate for the WHOLE WORLD? ..?

  10. If Fox News continues to Disable Comments on it's most divisive videos(the Smollett videos), I WILL NOT CONTINUE TO WATCH OR SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Good or bad, the Peoples Voice a.k.a the comments section is a vital part of the community. Deal with it.

  11. Sean Davis-CAPTAIN OBVIOUS (and I say that with respect and thanks)
    Well done, and thank you for stating what reasonable, thinking people have already concluded.

  12. Is The Media The “Enemy Of The People”?: If an enemy controlled the media, would the news look any different? by Daniel Greenfield.

  13. Help me, I'm trying to figure something out. I'm all for MAGA so please help. Here's how it seems: All media, every major news network and cable network and virtually all newspapers, GLOBALLY not just in the US, all of them call Trump out and criticize him for what he says and does. ALL of them. There's only ONE real exception – FOX. ONLY Fox supports Trump, it seems REGARDLESS of what he says or does. It's not like 50/50 in the MSM, it's not even 70/30 or 80/20. So does this mean that many, many hundreds of thousands (perhaps millions globally) of journalists and commentators all over the country, and all over the world, are all conspiring against him for no good reason just because? Are they all in it together? OR, and here's the bit that's confusing, is it possible they all agree in their criticism because he DESERVES the criticism? Is it possible it's actually Fox, completely on their own, that are the ones being disingenuous and fake? It seems impossible that only one news network is supporting him and ALL the others agree he's a liar etc What am I missing??

  14. CNN MSNBC and the rest of the Dems media could at least say , hey look we were lied too, we trusted the Dems and they lied to us as well… DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH !!!

  15. People ought to take a gander at The Society of Professional Journalism Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct. Liable comes to mind.

  16. Citizens of Venezuela and every other totalitarian regime know that our MSM is just like their State controlled media.

  17. Did Republicans just drop the ball on the health insurance for 2020 elections…im sure democrats will do their job on protecting people like always..

  18. Just a reminder Fox when you disable the comments you get a thumb down on that current video and the video you have to go to to leave this message

  19. This is so much fun… Im heading over to CNN and MSNBC for some more great comedy skits and to rub their viewers nose in their own crap

  20. Conspiracy NN, NB Conspiracy, AB Conspiracy, Conspiracy BS, MSNB Conspiracy. They don't have a "C" in their names for nothing.

  21. I was watching closely in 2016 and comparing sources, I unsubscribed from cnn, then msnbc, abc, bbc, Aussie abc, nbc, pbs and steadily increased my intake of independant sources. I am angry , the real question is how long does this go back for, how many decades have we been lied to for before the internet.

  22. I'd just like to take the time to point and laugh at all the liberals and Democrats who hoped their tinfoil hat lie was true. XD

  23. They "come back from that" simply because their viewers and sycophants are too weak minded to question either their chosen media outlets or the fake facts that are spoon fed to them.

  24. The media didn't fail to get outrageously rich off the "collusion" story. Their numbers have been through the roof over the past two years. Why do you think they were pushing it so hard? It was tantamount to having a license to print money. Money talks, Reputation walks.

  25. Trump should sue CNN and MSNBC for billions and bankrupt the lying fake news globalist media. As aside what is happening to Fox disabling the comments on Jussie Smollett YouTube video where the prosecution dropped his case? The Obamas and Reverend Jackson are implicated in influence pedalling with justice in Chicago but Fox censorship not allowing comments on this is a new bias. Have the Disney new Fox owners started trying to silence the news for a left wing bias? If this continues Fox will become just like the rest of the globalist media…

  26. Maddow's converage of Russian collusion was NO different than the right wing media's coverage on the Clinton emails or Benghazi (especially Hannity).

  27. There is no way for them to come back from this, but will they go away? I kinda doubt it; they and the democrats have a created a large following of people who live in fantasyland; young people undereducated, dumded-down and brainwashed in schools and universities, low intelligence people, etc. Brings to mind a line from a popular comedian…You can't fix stupid!

  28. After 2020, there will be so few Democrats left in Congress that they won't even be able to call them a party anymore. It will be the Republican party, and "those few guys over there."

  29. This is exactly like Grovers Mill NJ. When Orson Welles in 1938 did a radio entertainment show called war of the worlds. When people believed they were under attack from aliens. I see very little difference from that night to the Russian collusion narrative today. the only difference is the news outlets wanted people to believe it. Now that there Show is over it is time for them to take responsibility and "Pay the Piper"
