Gushing media gags on GOP gathering

2020 GOP National ConventionThe mainstream media that was so effusive with praise and optimism when describing last week's Democratic National Convention has struck a starkly different tone with the Republican gathering going on this week.

Following are some quotes from mainstream media made last week during the DNC:

  • "President Obama's speech tonight slayed me."
  • "The most powerful get-out-the-vote message that's ever been delivered."
  • "This Obama speech was one for the ages."
  • "It sent a chill through me."

Kyle Drennen of Media Research Center admits he wasn't expecting fair coverage of the Republican National Convention – but says he was amused at how the mainstream media was running with the Democrats' talking points the day after the RNC began.

Drennen

"… [On Sunday night] the Biden campaign puts out a statement saying 'the first night of the Republican National Convention was dark and divisive [and] it was fear mongering.' And guess what they all reported [Monday] morning?" Drennen asks:

  • "That upbeat message [leading up to the RNC] was undercut at every turn by dark appeals to the base and apocalyptic predictions."
  • "Dire warnings of a bleak future."
  • "The grim picture of the country if Donald Trump loses."
  • "An apocalyptic portrait of America."

President Trump noticed the mainstream fealty to the Democratic National Committee, and trolled the White House press corps later on Monday:

Trump: "Good to see you all. Hope you had a great weekend at your convention."

Six times more people watched the RNC opening night on C-SPAN compared with the Democratic convention a week ago.
