The more the media plays up something the more you know the opposite is true.

Here are a couple of commentaries about the dominant liberal media in general and two named individuals featured by Fox (Chris Wallace and Jonah  Goldberg) . The first by the estimable Victor Davis Hanson writing at American Greatness and the latter  by Jon Dougherty writing at Bizpac Review:

V D Hanson, The Doctrine of Media Untruth,  (excerpts):

Take the strange case of the respective records of liberal New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Florida counterpart Ron DeSantis.

Both have large numbers of retirees and long-term-care homes. Yet, New York has suffered 14 times the number of coronavirus deaths as has Florida. Florida is now increasingly open, and on May 19 saw 54 deaths attributed to the virus. That same day, New York was completely locked down and yet saw nearly twice that number at 105 deaths.

The media assures us that failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is a statuesque heroic figure who is an experienced state politician, a successful polymath, and would be a valuable asset as Joe Biden’s vice-presidential pick, but even better—wink-and-nod—a likely next president.
Do we remember that for a while “Bob” Mueller was Washington’s hallowed prosecutor, investigator, or inquisitor par excellence? No wonder he had assembled a “dream team” of “all stars” who, as “hunter-killer” squads of legal eagles, would tear apart Trump’s supposedly doddering third-stringers and send Trump either to jail or into ignominious exile. So, the more that legal eagle narrative saturated the liberal media landscape, the more we knew the opposite was true.

The more that CNN and MSNBC put ambulance-chasing lawyer Michael Avenatti on the air, and gushed about his tailored suits, his possible presidential gambit, his cocky take-downs of Trump, and his advocacy of supposed female victims of the predatory Brett Kavanaugh, the more we knew he was a fraud, a criminal, and likely a legal predator of his own clients. That he was sent to prison was predictable the more one heard the media gush.

The country once knew little of Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.). But once the media sanctified his role after the 2018 election as the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, we knew what lay ahead. No sooner had the Renaissance Schiff assumed the chairmanship of the committee than we were lectured ad nauseam how he was a Harvard Law graduate, with a sly sense of humor, who had he not blessed the country with his stellar political career otherwise might well have been a successful Hollywood screenwriter. He ran his committee with flair and competence lacking under the former chairman, the supposedly plodding dairy farmer Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). In other words, we quickly discovered the truth through the Doctrine of Media Untruth. Within about a year, the public knew that Schiff was a fraud.

Chris Wallace is thoroughly disgusted by WH press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s behavior

Yep. That’s the Chris Wallace we would grow to dislike more each day, if we ever watched him….He is joined by the execrable  Never Trumper Jonah Golberg whose obliviousness and condescending ways are on full display

“It’s a sign of defining deviancy down in our politics and it’s only gonna make things worse,” Goldberg continued, without a hint of irony considering he was sharing the panel with someone who cheated on behalf of a Democratic presidential candidate in 2016.
