Sheriff Clarke: Mainstream Media Has Abandoned Its Constitutional Responsibility
Milwaukee County, Wis. Sheriff David Clarke said that in continually criticizing President Trump, the media has abandoned its constitutional responsibility to provide unbiased reporting on government to the American people.
"The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC; they have become the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party. They have abandoned their responsibility under the Constitution, their First Amendment protection," he said.
"We don’t want [the First Amendment] to be used against people whose political views they don’t agree with or they oppose. They’re supposed to be a watchdog but instead what they’ve become is an echo chamber for leftist ideology."
Clarke also criticized Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for voicing his opposition to Trump's order to build a wall on the Mexican border, while the executive builds a partition around his estate in Kauai, Hawaii.
"I’m tired of one-percenters like Mark Zuckerberg and others lecturing us about who we are... Mark Zuckerberg has no idea of who’s coming into this country and what it takes to vet those individuals. I am a law enforcement officer in my 39th year. We do a lot of vetting of people," he said.
"I’m tired of all the crocodile tears about the kids, the poor kids coming. We’re not talking about that. We’re talking about able-bodied, grown men, fighting age [who are] coming over to the U.S. to spread jihad," Clarke added.
