“this is the first time in American history where you have a state-run television”
Like many of his fellow progressives, film director Rob Reiner either slept through eight years of media coverage of President Obama, or thinks you did. Trump gets hammered by 90 percent of the media or more on a daily basis, but that’s just not enough.
It drives Reiner and other leftists crazy that outlets like Fox News are allowed to exist. So what does he do? He goes on MSNBC to talk about partisan media.

Rob Reiner: We’ve Never Had TV Networks Align with a President!
Movie director Rob Reiner appeared on Friday’s Morning Joe to announce his historical verdict: This is the first time in American history that “state-run TV” networks like Fox and Sinclair ever “aligned with a president of the United States.” The networks never aligned with JFK, or Bill Clinton, or Barack Obama.
As usual, Reiner played up the Russia conspiracy theory that “the president of the United States is in conspiracy with that foreign power. This has never happened before in this country. You can see why the other side is putting out a full court press, because they know that what’s coming down the pipe, conceivably, it is the biggest scandal in American history and we are fighting right now for the soul of our democracy.”…
ROB REINER: You’re under attack. The press is under attack and right now, if you remove the ability to get the truth out, then you’re going to have the destruction of democracy. We don’t have anymore — there’s no checks and balances coming from Congress. Right now, the courts are holding, but this is the first time in American history where you have a state-run television — Fox, Breitbart, Sinclair, Alex Jones aligned with the president of the United States. That’s very, very tough. The battle lines have been drawn. And we’re going to see whether or not democracy survives.
Watch the video below:
If what Reiner says is true, that we’ve never had media align with a president, then the opposite must also be true, right? Certainly, we’ve never had media align against a president.
Let’s take a look back at the liberal media’s reaction to the outcome on election night 2016. Be forewarned, there’s lots of coarse language:
Reiner is a typical leftist. They think no one remembers anything that happened before right now.
