Christie’s Feeble Anti-Trump Campaign Backed By Media Elites

The 2024 election cycle has revealed a perplexing trend in media coverage. While environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and self-help author Marianne Williamson are polling ahead of former GOP New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, it is Christie who’s frequently featured on prime-time television.

Running on a staunchly anti-Trump platform but barely scraping 3% in the polls, Christie appears to be the media’s darling, seemingly ever-eager for any narrative that counters Trump’s dominance.

Christie, who once served as an ABC contributor, is no stranger to the corporate media circuit. It begs the question: did his prior connections give him an unfair advantage in the race? The Association on Mature American Citizens (AMAC) recently asked, “Do you think ABC would have hired you if you did not regularly attack Donald Trump?”

If Fox News moderators overlook such significant inquiries, perhaps Christie should find himself across from Tucker Carlson, who believes in genuine media scrutiny.

But it’s not just his previous affiliation with ABC that raises eyebrows. Christie’s recent defense of FBI Director Christopher Wray, despite conservative concerns over alleged bias in the investigative agency, has left many conservatives questioning where his loyalties lie. Their history, spanning over 20 years, from the Justice Department days to the infamous BridgeGate scandal, might suggest a deeper alliance.

With GOP presidential candidates such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former Vice President Mike Pence promising to fire Wray if elected, Christie’s contrasting position seems even more isolated within his party.

Furthermore, while Trump continues to surge with nearly 56% support in a packed GOP field, outlets like Politico have dubbed Christie’s campaign as “the most interesting candidacy in the Republican primary, and the most important.” Such a stance starkly contrasts the sentiments of the conservative voter base.

Even more puzzling is the treatment of Democrat challengers like Williamson and Kennedy. With Joe Biden seeing waning support from his party — half of the likely Democratic primary voters are looking beyond him, according to a New York Times and Siena College poll — the media seems to have sidelined these challengers. Williamson expressed frustration: “CNN and MSNBC aren’t having me on because they’re chopping wood and carrying water for the DNC.”

It’s high time Christie is confronted with hard-hitting questions about his connections, financial ties, and media-driven agendas. As the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination heats up, voters deserve transparency and authentic representation. They must know if candidates are running on their principles or merely pandering to an establishment elite.
