Critics slam mainstream media'''s rush to cast Kamala Harris as moderate: '''Absolutely, it'''s coordinated''' | Fox News

The mainstream media has rushed to portray Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., as a moderate from the moment presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden selected her as his running mate -- but she campaigned over the past year as an unabashed progressive.

The New York Times was roasted for immediately calling Harris a “pragmatic moderate” when alerting Biden’s decision, but that was only the beginning of what critics feel appears to be a coordinated message.

“I don’t remember Harris ever describing herself as a moderate. Indeed, Harris chose to run as an ultra-progressive,” Barron said. “To quote Maya Angelou, when someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.”

Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor said it’s a “laughable narrative” to label Harris a moderate.

“Compared to Karl Marx or your average journalist, maybe,” Gainor told Fox News. “It's no surprise that former Clinton staffer-turned-ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos and The New York Times both called Harris ‘moderate.’ This is just part of the way the press tries to craft a narrative to make leftists more marketable to voters.”

During her own presidential run, Harris expressed her support for the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-all, decriminalizing illegal border crossings, and gun buybacks -- but she has been billed as a moderate several times on CNN since she was added to the Democratic ticket.

“Absolutely, it’s coordinated. Listen, if I read Kamala’s policies to the mainstream media outlet but kept her name anonymous, they’d assume I was talking about left-wing Bernie Sanders,” Mehta told Fox News. “But, when I reveal the name to be Kamala Harris, they programmatically write down ‘moderate.’”
