GOP Senator Goes Off On Bias Media 

Daily Report January 21,2024

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) blasted the liberal mainstream media over its reaction to former President Donald Trump’s Iowa record-breaking win last week.

Trump won the Iowa Caucus by a landslide victory, taking more than 50% of the total votes. Trump’s victory did not sit well with the liberal mainstream media, with many leftist journalists and anchors falsely blaming it on racism.

Rubio, while speaking on Fox News’ “Hannity,” blasted the media’s collective response, likening the reaction to those from the media outlets of authoritarian governments.

“It’s not about bias anymore,” Rubio said. “There’s always been liberal bias in the media. Human beings are biased. They’re partisan, and they’re not just partisan like openly partisan, they are now extending that to not just attack Trump as a candidate, as a former president and future president. But also to attack the people who follow him just in the last hours. We’ve had multiple people go on the air on other networks and talk about things like — well, in Iowa, the problem is these are all white Christians or their attitude about the followers of Trump is these are dumb, stupid, uneducated people that don’t know any better or worse. They’re haters, they’re bigots. And so, it’s what’s really changed is not just the partisan tone of the coverage, but now, this effort to say we’re not going to carry his speech. We’re not going to let you hear what he has to say. We’ll interpret it and we’ll put out the snippets we want you to hear, but we’ve made the decision to no longer carry it. This is exactly how state-run media is used by authoritarian governments to delegitimize, to discredit, to basically make people believe that there is no alternative but to the regime and to their rule. And that’s how that’s – – it’s destroying the media in this country. No, it’s why at this point, you know, no one believes anything they see or hear anymore.”

Rubio is one of the Republican senators who have endorsed the former president for 2024. Rubio told Fox that he endorsed Trump because he believed that the former president is the only one who can fix the nation’s many problems.
