The Babylon Bee is always one step ahead of the cultural zeitgeist.
While The Onion avoids mentioning President Joe Biden by name, The Bee does so regularly while mocking the elites at near-warp speed.
Case in point:
CNN Reports On ‘Deadly Boat Accident’ At Pearl Harbor https://t.co/GHo6vjtam1

For the uninitiated, The Bee is mocking how the press continues to downplay the terror attack in Waukesha, Wisc. earlier this week that killed six people and injured dozens. The attack has all the markings of a hate crime, from the manner in which accused killer, Darrell Brooks, drove through the crowd to Brooks’ anti-white social media posts.
Enter the media, which doesn’t like the narrative in question and is actively trying to change it.
How? By describing the terror attack as a “crash” or an “incident.”

The Bee had some company on this front, some unexpected company, to be precise.
Far-left actress/activist Debra Messing used her massive Twitter following to rage against the same media bias The Bee shredded with that faux news story.
Dear Mainstream Media—a man intentionally drove his car through a parade killing 6 and injuring 50+.
It was not an ACCIDENT.
🔥Call it by its name🔥#WaukeshaMassacre
And it was a domestic terror attack.
Don’t minimize. Please.

Messing rarely, if ever, calls out media bias in this fashion. And it’s likely she earned plenty of retweets from right-leaning Twitter users cheering her take on the matter.
It’s a sign that media bias, which seems to grow worse on a weekly basis, is so toxic even those who applaud the press’s hard-left agenda are crying foul.
The rest of Messing’s Twitter account brims with progressive messaging, plus a smattering of promotional posts. Still, her message about the corrupt media framing of the attack will be seen by thousands, upon thousands, of liberal followers.
Chances are it’ll be one of the first times her fans absorbe a cold lesson about today’s reporters. They’re no longer dedicated to the truth.
