Former President Trump’s comments were a careful dissection of a few of his potential counterarguments.
However, while PBS broadcast his speech, chyrons went across the screen, warning viewers that “violent sentiment has gotten worse in chat rooms among far-right militia organizations, following Trump’s federal indictment.”
In addition, they ran a further advertisement that said, “Experts caution that inciting remarks made by public figures or other influential people may encourage lone actors to engage in violent behavior.”
Left Goes Nuts
Although Joe Biden tried to incite rage toward millions of Americans during his “red speech” in Philadelphia, PBS lacked such chyrons.
Instead, Biden portrayed millions of MAGA supporters as a threat to the Republic’s basic core.
Ignoring the fact that Trump made no comments that suggested violence, the chyrons from last night appeared to be an effort to malign him. Due to their prejudices, certain liberal media outlets, including CNN and MSNBC, failed to even broadcast his comments live.
Fox happened to be one of the stations to broadcast it live, but they too experienced a chyron problem that is sending the left into a tailspin. Even though Fox and Trump haven’t been on speaking terms, it appears whoever created the chyron had a purpose in mind.

Trump claimed in the issue with the confidential documents, Hillary Clinton lacked the authority to declassify everything. As stated in the chyron, “Wannabe tyrant talks at the White House after getting his political opponent arrested.”
During the comments, the chyron ran shortly before 9 o’clock.

If Biden was attempting to overshadow Trump’s words during his Juneteenth speech, he failed. His comments received a tiny fraction of the media’s focus that was on Trump. Even the audio from his statements was not played by Fox.
FOX Ruffles Feathers
Many on the left were enraged by it. They were not shouting regarding the inappropriate behavior of the PBS chyrons, but they were angry over the Fox one, which featured split-screen footage of Biden and Trump, calling Biden a “wannabe dictator.”
