Psaki makes late-night comedy actually funny: ‘MSNBC has a very high standard of what is factual’

Liberals live in a world of their own making, a world where these morally righteous ideologues look past contradicting realities to appoint themselves the arbiters of all that is just and true. A world where the leading purveyors of “disinformation” lead with indignation against what they decide is disinformation.

No better example of this can be found than on Monday night, when former White House press secretary Jen Psaki touted the “very high standards” at MSNBC — this being the home of Joy Reid, who dedicates ample portions of her show to smearing white people, with the rest dedicated to advancing the Democratic Party’s latest talking points, and the network that fed viewers the Russian collusion hoax for 2 long years.

Psaki appeared on “The Late Show” to promote her new MSNBC program and wasted no time attacking Fox News, which blows MSNBC out of the water in the ratings game. The left has been taking full advantage of the $1.6 billion Dominion defamation lawsuit to trash Fox News, and host Stephen Colbert was no exception, distorting the truth and conflating facts to claim that the network knowingly reported false information.

“So if your bosses at MSNBC, which is sort of sometimes called like a liberal Fox — I don’t think it’s entirely fair — if you were asked to do any of that stuff, what would you say? Colbert asked.

“I would say no, but I would never be asked that,” Psaki said.

Pressing, Colbert asked Psaki to reply to a hypothetical situation.

“Well. I don’t do hypotheticals. But, look, I think this is an important piece to dive into because MSNBC has a very high standard of what is factual,” she replied with a straight face. “You have to go through a process before you report things on air to make sure they are factual and you have sources. That is how news should work.”

“Now you can have informed opinion, which is what I will share and what others will share, informed experiences, informed perspective,” Psaki continued. “That is an important part of reporting as well. But there is a huge difference between going out there reporting things that are inaccurate, knowingly reporting they’re inaccurate, and sharing perspective.”

Notice that she used the term “informed perspective” to describe views from the left, while those she doesn’t agree with peddle things that are “inaccurate.”
