When Townhall caught up with Bill Barr for an exclusive interview, he did not mince any words.
In fact, he let them have it with both barrels.
“They’re basically a collection of liars. Most of the mainstream media. 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,” Barr said on the flight back to Washington Friday afternoon.
“The press has dropped, in my view – and I’m talking about the national mainstream media – has dropped any pretense of professional objectivity and are political actors, highly partisan who try to shape what they’re reporting to achieve a political purpose and support a political narrative that has nothing to do with the truth. They’re very mendacious about it,” he continued. “It’s very destructive to our Republic; it’s very destructive to the Democratic system to have that, especially being so monolithic. It’s contributing to a lot of the intensity and partisanship.”
For months major news networks have portrayed riots across the country as “peaceful protests.” CNN ran a chyron of a reporter standing in front of a burning Kenosha business that read, “Fiery but mostly peaceful protest.”
“It’s funny that you had record numbers of police being injured during ‘peaceful’ protests,” he said. “You know usually in protests, you have large numbers of injured rioters and a modest number of injured law enforcement. I’m talking about back in the 90s and 60s, 60s to the 90s, nowadays very few rioters get injured, very few and hundreds, even thousands of officers have been injured.” —TownHall
But he’s not throwing everyone under the bus.
“I think there are a handful of reporters in the mainstream media that still have journalistic integrity, and there are some, but the overwhelming majority don’t have it anymore,” Barr said. “The people who do cover the Department do understand some of the issues. But, on the other hand, some of them have essentially adopted the same methods and ploys as what I refer to more generally as the national media and that is they’re not because, probably somewhat because, of their own orientation and but also what their editors say, they’re not really interested so much in what really happened but in pursuing a preformed narrative that suits some kind of ideological agenda. That’s what it’s all become.”–TownHall
He’s not afraid of the media.
Not even a little.
And he has the truth on his side, no matter how loudly they shout the lies. They will eventually unravel.
Like the lies about ‘peaceful protests’ whether they are talking about Portland and NYC or LaFayette Park… the world is now seeing what they had tried to obscure from our sight.
The heroes and villains of those stories are NOT who they wanted us to think that they were.
Trump Derangement Syndrome began as a joke or a meme. But if you look around at the nation’s agitators and their media and Democrat enablers, it’s a joke that took on a very serious reality.
A serious reality that, sadly, is now racking up a body count.
The media played a significant role in bringing this Frankenstein’s monster to life and turned it loose upon the nation. It would be too much to expect them to reverse course now.
That would require them acknowledging who they really are. And that might hurt their chances of reclaiming the federal political power they so desperately crave.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
