Conservative Reactions to Media’s Embarrassing Performance at Barr Presser

If you were expecting a chastened and retrospective media this morning as the attorney general put to bed the last two years of #RussiaGate hysteria, you were perhaps being overly optimistic. Every reporter except for Fox New’s Catherine Herridge asked hostile questions of the attorney general, suggesting he was trying to protect the president.

President Trump tweeted his reaction to the Mueller report, further upsetting liberals.

As Town Hall’s Guy Benson noted, it’s as if journalists are having a hard time processing their own complicity in peddling the Russia collusion hoax for the past two years.

Here are some other reactions on Twitter to the media’s dismal performance this morning:

Everybody’s favorite part of Barr’s presser came when a reporter accused him of being “generous” to the president.

“You said this is an unprecedented situation,” the reporter said.

“Well is there another precedent for it?” Barr calmly asked the reporter.

“No–but …”

“Well then unprecedented is an accurate description,” Barr concluded, shutting her completely down.
