I don’t know if you’ve noticed lately, but I’ve been referring to the news media as the Democrat Party’s Handmaids.
I think it fits.
And it seems the logical progression from my original term for them – the Enslaved Press. Especially in light of the current political circus.
The Democrats yell “jump” and the Handmaids in the media ask how high.
You see, it isn’t just the Deep State that is relying on media Handmaids to peddle their leaks.
The Democrats in Congress have called them into service as well.
Whether it’s Adam Schiff having friendly reporters on speed dial to leak fake news stories from the House Intelligence Committee or Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer coordinating with the news media on Operation Smear Kavanaugh.
After his bungling of Sunday’s alleged accusation against Brett Kavanaugh, New Yorker “journalist” Ronan Farrow let the cat out of the bag.
He did the story because Senate Democrats pursued the accuser.
Now, this is nothing new.
I read through the Podesta emails that Wikileaks published two years ago.
And clearly the Clinton campaign team had friendly media Handmaids who were happy to oblige them.
What’s clear today is the Handmaids in the media are willing to twist and omit facts in order to advance the narrative their masters in the Democrat Party want.
They’re not even trying to hide it.
In fact, after Farrow’s piece backfired and did not achieve the Democrats’ goal of getting the Republicans to jettison Kavanaugh, the New Yorker actually followed up with this:

The Democrats’ media Handmaids are doing everything humanly possible to destroy Brett Kavanaugh on behalf of their masters in the Senate.
And it isn’t working anymore.
But unlike the Handmaids in that ploddingly boring book “A Handmaid’s Tale,” the news media had a choice.
They could have chosen to be unbiased journalists of a Free Press.
But instead, they willingly enslaved themselves to the Democrat Party.
And in so doing, they’ve destroyed the Free Press and they’ve cast doubt on everything else they report.
NEW: @NBCNews has obtained sworn and signed declarations from 4 people who corroborate Christine Blasey Ford’s claims of sexual assault against Kavanaugh, sent to Senate Cmte. pic.twitter.com/psl62NWZ4J

Were these four people present at the time of this alleged “sexual assault?”
These are four people who say Ms. Ford told them about this claim decades after the fact.
On Planet Earth we don’t call that “corroboration.”
But for the Handmaids of the Democrat Party it corroborates Ford’s story.
This is getting ridiculous. Corroboration now means that you told people your version of a story decades later? Come on, @USATODAY. Corroboration in a case involves additional evidence or witness testimony that support the original claim. You’re not embarrassed to tweet this? https://t.co/Z3RH6WqEO8

I guess "@NBCNews has obtained" sounds much more official and serious than "Senate Democrats gave us." I do like how he pretends he did journalism rather than doing a party's bidding. https://t.co/TIhjncgT8t

The Democrat Party didn’t force the news media into servitude. They didn’t need to.
The Handmaids in the media happily bent over and let the Democrats have their way with them.
And in so doing, the news media sold their souls.
This evil media is how we got Trump.
I feel like a broken record, but it is true.

You don’t think free thinking Americans are watching all this and waking the hell up?
You think it’s just Trump supporters who are disgusted with the Handmaids in the media?
If you think that, I’m afraid you’re in for a shock come November.
I'm hearing from never-Trump friends and acquaintances that they're being radicalized by this. It's like Lowry wrote today, this is proving Trump voters right. https://t.co/F26meczsED

If these poll numbers are the result of the Kavanaugh fiasco, it’s an indictment of progressive Democrats.
For weeks, these activists have shown an abject disdain for the rule of law and a willingness to weaponize rape for partisan advantage.
Folks see through the charade. https://t.co/s4sItys3I3

This might sound like over-the-top hyperbole.
And maybe it is. But I’m going to say it anyway.
The fact is, it isn’t just the Democrat Party who set themselves up for a reckoning over this smear.
Their Handmaids in the news media who dutifully carried their talking points are in for a reckoning as well.
You can’t enslave yourselves to a party that’s careening over a cliff and not expect to get dragged over as well.
And they can write all the smarmy “we’re not the enemy; we believe in a free press” editorials that they want.
It won’t change the fact that the Handmaids in the media are about as free as a caged bird.
