A California resident and a Democratic challenger to Devin Nunes said to an MSNBC anchors face that he thinks they are fake news and that they are blowing the Russian collusion story way out of proportion, reports The Daily Caller.
Jacob Soboroff was taping an interview with Andrew Janz, a prosecutor who is challenging House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes for his seat in the 2018 election.
During the interview, they stopped to talk to some local citizen, including one woman who when asked directly if she thought MSNBC was fake news she responded, “a little bit.”
When Soboroff went back to interviewing the candidate, the interview took a turn I’m sure the liberal news anchor wasn’t expecting it too and Janz ended up criticizing the network.
“One of the things I’ve been criticized for is really only talking about Russia,” Janz noted after the exchange. “Which couldn’t be farther from the truth.”
“Why Russia?” Soboroff asked in followup. “Why is everyone talking about Andrew Janz and Russia?”
“Yeah, no offense,” Janz countered. “But you folks in the media only talk about the Russia thing. So when I’m out there talking about water or infrastructure that’s not covered or it’s not played on cable news.”
Janz’s situation is one that keeps happening when it comes to the liberal media and their inability to actually report any kind of news other than anti-Trump rhetoric. If there were more Democratic lawmakers like Janz who stood up to the liberal media like MSNBC, then maybe their biased reporting wouldn’t be as much of an issue because they were would be rendered irrelevant.
After Soboroff sent the segment back to the studio, “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough noted that the people of Central Valley, California are “very polite.”
“When you said, ‘do you think we are fake news?’” he continued, “she was like, ‘a little bit.’ Very kind. Very subtle.”
“Just a little,” Soboroff conceded with a chuckle.
It may have been subtle, but when you can’t even get the liberals of California to watch your liberal network, then you know your doing something wrong.
