Hugh Hewitt: Elite Media Ignores UAE Peace Treaty

The normalization of economic relations between Kosovo and Serbia marked yet another significant foreign policy success for the Trump administration. In the aftermath—when Trump presided over a very important set of handshakes commemorating the deal—the elite media all but ignored the story.

To have Kosovo and Serbia put aside generations of enmity and normalize economic relations is a big deal of and in itself. But both countries also agreed to take steps to support the momentum for peace in the Middle East generated by the peace treaty between the United Arab Emirates and Israel. More dominoes were falling toward peace. Another may follow soon.

So when Ambassador Richard Grenell, the special envoy for Serbia and Kosovo peace negotiations, teed off on a seemingly disinterested media, his frustration was understandable.

The electorate is weary of the non-stop anti-Trump alarmism.

The American voter needs to pay attention to Trump’s real successes, not the media’s distraction.

Hugh Hewitt: Our Irresponsible Media

Whatever one thinks of Donald Trump, I am increasingly convinced that a large portion of the electorate will be casting a vote for him this fall in no small part as a rebuke to the media’s descent into a sort of collective hatred of the president.

Today’s journalistic elite is so quick to slice and dice any accomplishment of the administration—with no concern over the cost.

The latest iteration of this was the historic peace deal in the Middle East—the recognition of Israel by the United Arab Emirates. It was the greatest step forward for the region in at least 30 years.

And it was pushed offstage by anti-Trump talking points about … wait for it … the Post Office.

In 30 years of radio and television, I cannot think of one caller concerned about the Post Office.

The voting public has every reason to be disappointed with an establishment media that is irresponsible, untrustworthy, and increasingly and rapidly partisan.
