PBS ‘Reporter’ Yamiche Gets a Rude Awakening After Declaring 1619 Project Founder ‘a National Treasure’

As I noted earlier this week, every once in a while the masks completely slip off and supposedly objective journalists accidentally (and in some cases deliberately) reveal in no uncertain terms what their political colors are to their readers and viewers.

PBS News Hour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor does this with regularity. She’s been repeatedly called out for her gotcha-style liberally biased “reporting” and performance journalism during White House press briefings, as well as for flat out altering quotes from President Trump to deliberately make it look like he said something he didn’t.

On Thursday, however, Alcindor upped her “I’m biased and I don’t give a d*mn who knows it” game by tweeting out a defense of 1619 Project founder Nikole Hannah-Jones that sounded like it could have been written by Hannah-Jones herself.

She started off by pointing out that President Trump planned to “attack 1619” in a speech:

In her next tweet is where Alcindor got defensive, declaring Hannah-Jones a “national tresure” and proclaiming that “we should all be grateful” for her work:

She claimed after the speech, without evidence, that the “1619 project … aims to educate the nation with facts” (bolded emphasis added):

“With facts”? Really? I don’t think so.

As was correctly pointed out by others, the 1619 Project has been roundly criticized and in some cases discredited by respected historians as being a deeply flawed body of work on American history:

Bizarrely, Hannah-Jones was awarded a Pulitzer prize in May despite the many historical inaccuracies in her work on how the basis for the American Revolution was allegedly about preserving slavery.

In any event, reminders that PBS is partially funded with tax dollars and calls to “defund PBS” accordingly rang out anew after Alcindor’s decidedly non-objective declaration about Hannah-Jones:

As my RedState colleague Bonchie reported in June, Alcindor has a book in the works, which explains quite a bit.
