Joy Behar, the liberal co-host of ABC’s The View, finally had a moment of truth on Tuesday as she opined on why the press keeps getting stories related to President Trump so terribly wrong.

The ladies were talking about egregious misreporting surrounded a situation at the March for Life that involved MAGA-hat wearing high school kids from Covington Catholic High School and a Native American pro-abortion activist Nathan Phillips.  Several news organizations aired a selectively edited clip of an interaction between them that made it seem like the boys were bullying the Native American, when a fuller video showed that Phillips was actually antagonizing the children.  (Everyone act surprised that a man who is so enthusiastic about abortion shows such calloused disregard toward children.)

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “So many people admitted they made snap judgments before all these other facts came in. Why is that? Why do we keep making the same mistake?”

“Because we’re desperate to get Trump out of office,” Behar candidly said.  “That’s why.  I think that’s the reason. I think the press jumps the gun a lot because we just have so much circumstantial evidence against this guy that we are basically hoping Cohen’s got the goods and what have you and so it’s wishful thinking.”

Wishful thinking, in deed.

What a shame that the liberal media and news personalities are willing to sacrifice the reputations — and even lives – of conservative children, all at the altar of their Trump hate.
