In an era of fake news and biased media, it’s more important than ever to question the motives and actions of those in power.
Journalists, who are supposed to hold our leaders accountable, are often the ones perpetuating false narratives and personal attacks.
Take for instance the recent interview between Senator Josh Hawley and journalist Mark Maxwell.

Maxwell, who has a history of bashing Elon Musk and his supporters, was asked by Hawley about his derogatory comments toward those who disagree with him. Maxwell, seemingly unprepared and flustered, joked about not being sober during his Twitter rants.
It’s a sad state of affairs when journalists can’t even maintain a professional demeanor during an interview. It’s clear that Maxwell’s bias and personal attacks have clouded his judgment and ability to report objectively.
This is why it’s important for Republicans to stay vigilant and demand better from our media.
We must call out biased reporting and demand that journalists uphold their duty to report the truth, not just push their own agenda.
