Pence Blasts MSM for Not Covering Return of Korean War Remains

Vice President Mike Pence wasted no time in sharing his disgust with the anti-Trump, agenda-driven mainstream media outlets that chose not to cover the ceremony honoring the return of Americans’ remains from the Korean War, a historic diplomatic victory for our country and for these soldiers and their families. He also blasted the MSM for being out of touch with the American people. Of the three major cable news networks, only Fox News carried Pence’s address at the ceremony live. “I think there’s a lot of people in the so-called mainstream media that would do well to spend a little bit more time traveling across this country and listening to the American people,” Pence lectured. For the leftmedia, the only war-related news worth covering is that which involves a scandal for President Trump. Otherwise, the military and our veterans are persona non grata.

Vice President Mike Pence suggested reporters from major news organizations should speak more frequently with people outside of the Beltway after some cable TV networks failed to break into their regular programming on Wednesday night to cover the ceremony he attended in Hawaii honoring the remains of possible U.S. military personnel killed during the Korean War.

“I think there’s a lot of people in the so-called mainstream media that would do well to spend a little bit more time traveling across this country and listening to the American people,” Pence said during an interview with “Fox & Friends” that aired Thursday.

“‘Cause frankly, as I travel on behalf of this administration, meeting with groups large and small, I sense a great enthusiasm across the country,” he continued. “People see when it comes to President Donald Trump, it really has been a year and a half of promises made and promises kept.”

The potential remains of American troops who died in North Korea were returned to U.S. soil Wednesday as part of the four-point joint declaration signed by President Trump and Kim Jong Un at their historic summit in Singapore in June.
