Fox’s Seb Gorka Rips Media For North Korea Coverage: ‘Lack of Self Awareness’ Is ‘Incredible’

Throughout much of the day Monday, Fox News opinion hosts, guests and commentators took aim at CNN and other mainstream media outlets for their fawning coverage of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s sister. One thing, however, that wasn’t really brought up during that time was that Fox News and other conservative outlets also published positive pieces on Kim Yo Jong’s visit to the Winter Games.

During Monday night’s broadcast of Hannity, host Sean Hannity brought on Fox News analyst Seb Gorka and former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton to discuss how the MSM has covered Kim Yo Jong. And, as you’d probably imagine, they all had strong words for the press.

Right off the bat, Hannity wanted to know why there is “a compulsion on the left to want to suck up to the world’s dictators.” And Gorka had an answer.

“Would CNN have celebrated Goebbels?” Gorka declared. “Would they have celebrated the propaganda machine of Hitler’s Third Reich? It’s outrageous that the lack of self-awareness of the left-wing media is incredible.”

After Bolton condemned the left and the media for their “incompetence” and called them “stenographers for the North Koreans,” Hannity asked Gorka why they look sympathetically upon totalitarian regimes.

“Because these people don’t love America,” the former presidential aide stated. “Why did these people excuse everything Obama did for 8 years as he went on an apology tour?”

Towards the end of the segment, Hannity dinged the Washington Post for their headline calling Kim Yo Jong the Ivanka Trump of North Korea, perhaps forgetting that FoxNews.com had a similar headline for one of their pieces.
