Assorted news media figures recently described President Donald Trump’s rescinding of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy as “cruel,” echoing the narrative pushed by Barack Obama and Joe Biden.
Grabien composed a montage of what it described as a news media “echo chamber.” Watch it below.
Ben Rhodes hyped the “cruelty” of rescinding DACA on Twitter, with the American Thinker framing Rhodes’ tweets as marching orders for left-wing and Democrat-aligned news media outlets.
Grabien’s montage of news media figures and Democrat politicians includes:
President Obama’s former deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes, once infamously bragged of his ability to control media narratives through gullible reporters. “The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaign,” he said. “They literally know nothing.”
Yesterday, as the American Thinker first observed, Rhodes began issuing marching orders to the “know nothing” reporters evidently at his command.
And thus was born this news cycle’s buzzword: Cruel.
Shortly after Rhodes’ tweetstorm, President Obama released his own statement, likewise calling the planned ending of DACA “cruel.”
As seen in the montage above, the major media picked up on their cues, and the word “cruel” was oon seen in virtually every news segment about the Trump Administration’s decision to halt DACA in six months.
