Devin Nunes Lashes Out At Local Reporter: ‘Your Paper Is A Joke’


Ed note: The exchange reported by the Fresno Bee happened in February 2018. This post has been updated to reflect the date. 

When asked by a Fresno Bee reporter in February whether he planned to hold any public town halls during this election cycle, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) lashed out viciously, calling the paper a “joke” to be raising these issues.

“I actually feel bad for the people who work at the Bee because sadly it’s become just a left-wing rag,” Nunes continued. “It’s unfortunate that we’re in this situation but when the paper just becomes regurgitating Democratic talking points, it’s no longer a news outlet that’s being fair or objective.”

He added that he had held “educational forums” over the years, never answering the journalist’s question.
