Carville Demands Media Abandon Objectivity, Claims Constitution Is In Peril

Democratic strategist James Carville is calling on the media to abandon objectivity and provide “slanted coverage” against former President Donald Trump, claiming that the Constitution is under threat. Carville’s comments came in response to New York Times executive editor Joe Kahn’s recent statement affirming the newspaper’s commitment to fairness in the upcoming election.

In an interview on Thursday, Carville argued that the media should not strive for impartiality when the country is facing “great peril” or a significant “moral imperative.” He dismissed Kahn’s stance, saying, “I don’t think that’s the role of the news media at a time when the entire Constitution is in peril. I don’t have anything against slanted coverage. I really don’t … I would have something against it at most other times in American history, but not right now. F*** your objectivity.”

Carville also criticized the media for reporting on the criminal charges against President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and the bias issues involving the judge who oversaw Trump’s criminal trial in Manhattan. He described media members as “extremely naive people who have no idea what’s at stake in this election.”

The strategist emphasized his belief that the “entire MAGA movement, from Alito and Trump on down is a serious, clear and present danger to the existence of the Constitution in the United States.” He called for “more slanted coverage” to address this perceived threat.

Carville’s comments highlight the growing tension between the media’s traditional role of objective reporting and the increasingly polarized political landscape in the United States.
