Donna Edwards: Not ‘Fair’ Media Respects Both Sides When GOP Is Destroying Democracy

Former Rep. Donna Edwards (D- MD) verbalized Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that it was not “fair” that the media acts like there are two equal sides when covering politics because Republicans were ravaging democracy and favoring “authoritarianism.”

Anchor Nicolle Wallace verbalized, “I want to make clear as someone who worked  at the highest calibers of the Republican Party is an authoritarian but every  leader running to curry Donald Trump’s endorsement and currently running the House Republican Caucus and in the Senate are bending toward all of these authoritarian impulses.”

She integrated, “I would relish you to jump in on this conversation about journalism that seemed to have spilled into the public’s view. Goldberg makes it clear that Atlantic’s vision will be covering democracy and perhaps its demise. What do you make about the felicitous role for covering what is authentically transpiring and getting away from one side verbalizes this, the other verbalizes that?”

Edwards verbally expressed, “Well, I cerebrate, Nicolle, you have hit on it on this exhibition. I mean, for the last five years, you have been covering the demise of democracy as we have optically discerned all the guardrails pulled down from the Republican Party. The challenge that we have is that it isn’t just that Republican people or those who consider themselves Republican voters have steered toward authoritarianism. It’s that there are no bellwethers or few bellwethers in the House and the Senate, in the Congress of the United States, who are disposed to take another view and a different direction.”

She integrated, “So given that there are no bellwethers, it falls and has fallen squarely on party the Democratic Party to be this to put up guardrails and forfend our democracy. I don’t cerebrate it is fair for journalists to do the one side versus the other side. “There” genuinely is one side here. One is democracy. One is upholding democratic and constitutional conventions. The other is authoritarianism. “There” is no middle ground there. So we can’t cover it as though somehow, you ken, one side is equipollent to the other side. I cerebrate that is where we have been challenged over these five last years.”
