On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, talk show host Dan O’Donnell joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss his article “Biden’s DOJ Ignores Washington Post-Prompted Death Threats Against School Board Member” and how the corporate media weaponized falsities to become the “enemy of the people” in Wisconsin.
“It’s all designed to sort of advance that narrative. And who cares about the facts, right? It’s like that old journalistic joke: ‘why let the facts get in the way of a good story?’ Well, the reason you have to go with facts is because these are real people with real lives and real lives were hurt,” O’Donnell explained.
This incident, O’Donnell explained, was not only used by the corporate media to propel a narrative but was also overlooked in the Biden administration’s war on parents in the name of protecting school board members.
“The most angering thing about this is literally at the exact same time the Biden administration is saying ‘we are going to take this seriously. We’re going to sick the FBI on threats against school board members,’” O’Donnell said. “They are actively and willfully ignoring threats against school board members right in front of them. But because they come from liberals to a conservative school board member, that’s fine? I mean, give me a break.”
