Fiery 'They're Not Informing the Public': Varney Blasts Media's Trump 'Hate-Fest'
Stuart Varney took the mainstream media to task this morning for what he called a "hate-fest" targeting President Donald Trump, calling it the "most hateful campaign in recent political history."
"The left is spewing contempt through its media allies and President Trump is the target. The attacks verge on hysteria. Frankly, the left appears deranged and it's getting worse," he said in his commentary on "Varney & Co."
He pointed out the opinion pages of the Washington Post and New York Times in the wake of the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
"It’s naïve to expect Republicans to join forces with Democrats to get to the bottom of the Russia scandal — even if that scandal may strike at the very roots of our national security. Today’s Republicans just don’t cooperate with Democrats, period. They’d rather work with Vladimir Putin. In fact, some of them probably did," wrote Krugman.
On MSNBC after the Comey firing, Chris Matthews said there was a "whiff of fascism" in Trump's decision.
Varney said ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and MSNBC "have long since abandoned any attempt at objectivity," turning their coverage into a "hate-fest" of the new president.
"They are not informing the public," he declared.
Varney said the left remains "stunned" by Republicans' election victories and "are filling their void with hatred and contempt."
"I don't know about you, but I'm not going to just 'get used to it,'" he concluded.
