Barr Accuses Media Of ‘Projecting A Narrative’ In Coverage Of Unrest: ‘People Are Being Told A Lie’


Attorney General Bill Barr accused the media of pushing their own “narrative” instead of reporting facts on the ground when it comes to coverage of civil unrest in cities across the country following George Floyd’s death.

In an interview with Mark Levin on Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin,” Barr lamented that while people are “rushing the police” and “throwing rocks,” the media reports on “peaceful demonstrators” instead.

“They are projecting a narrative. When the word ‘narrative’ came into currency I knew we were in trouble, because the word narrative suggests that there’s no objective truth,” Barr said. “There’s no real story of what happened, it’s just everyone has their own narrative. And you get to where the press can justify presenting a story that doesn’t really correspond to objective truth but ‘it’s our narrative, we have a narrative you have a narrative.’”

Barr went on to say that he was “appalled” by coverage of the violence because “it’s happening right out in the streets,” in public view.
