Almost immediately after news hit that Nancy Pelosi’s husband was assaulted in their home, the left politicized it. Even though we knew nothing about the event, they were trying to use it to tarnish Republicans. With signs pointing to Democrats losing big this November, it isn’t a surprise that liberals would manipulate a disturbing story to push their agenda. Even when what they are spreading is far from the truth.
Circumstances surrounding the event are still confusing and shaky. This is in part thanks to the incompetence and possible corruption of the SFPD–a police department that is most certainly politicized by the left. There are major issues concerning this story that reporters are not addressing though. The MSM is pushing a narrative–with zero evidence–and is not asking real questions.
And now, a top reporter is explaining why.
Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald said Sunday that there was a very simple reason that members of his chosen profession seemed unwilling to question the narrative surrounding the alleged attack on Paul Pelosi — namely the possibility that asking questions could put their careers at risk…
“It’s very possible that the instantly formed media narrative — Paul Pelosi’s attacker was a MAGA fanatic who broke in to murder Nancy — will be proven true. But right now there are so many glaring doubts and holes in that story that it just takes common sense to question this,” Greenwald began…
He then shared a tweet from Steve Krakauer that included just a few of the questions he thought media ought to be asking.
- “Why wasn’t there signs of forced entry at Pelosi home?”
- “Who was 3rd person who opened door for police?”
- “Why was Pelosi holding hammer and attack only happened after police arrived?”
- “Where is bodycam/security footage?”
- “Why isn’t the press asking these questions?” [Source: Daily Wire]
Many people online are wondering why this event between Paul Pelosi and his alleged attack sounds so weird. There were not reports of forced entry at the house–so how did this man get in. Reports reveal Pelosi made a 911 call from the bathroom. Why did his attack let him take a bathroom break?
And many more. Some folks online have already formed their own hypothesis about this event–which will quickly be censored and fact-checked as “disinformation” soon enough. But Greenwald revealed that reporters in the media will in no way do their job to run this story to the ground. They will not ask these and other important questions, because it would make Nancy Pelosi and her family look bad.
They are facing a terrible midterm election cycle. This story has come out at the very worst time. Democrats are scrambling to push a wildly untrue version of the events (the attack was a known leftist and in no way could be a MAGA supporter). But the truth doesn’t matter when you are a corrupt, evil political party hell-bent on selling America to the highest bidder.
And the pathetic MSM refuses to let any reporter do the real work of reporting. Greenwald said these “journalists” are too cowardly to ask these questions, out of fear of losing their jobs.
Which is why, in the end, Americans no longer trust this joke of an industry.
