Dan Bongino: Elite media's Iran propaganda is 'shameful'

IT RICK LEVENTHAL, THANKS SO MUCH

AINSLEY: YOU CAN SEE THE FRONT COVER OF THE "NEW YORK POST" YOU CAN SEE THE AMERICAN FLAG, ISRAELI FLAG AND MOST PART THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE WALKING AROUND BRIAN: WALKING AROUND IS AMAZING STEVE: PEOPLE DID WALK ON THE FLAG PEOPLE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THEM YELLED AT THEM SHAME, SHAME ON YOU LET'S BRING IN DAN BONGINO

FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR, FORMER SECRET SERVICE GUY FORMER NEW YORK CITY POLICE OFFICER JOINS FROM US FLORIDA WHERE EVERYBODY SHOULD BE DURING THE WINTER DAN, ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES SAID YESTERDAY HEY, IRAN, TURN YOUR INTERNET BACK ON AND LET REPORTERS ROAM FREE THE LAST THING THEY WANT TO DO IS TURN THE INTERNET BACK ON SO THEY KNOW THE WORLD REACTION THAT WE ARE ON THE SIDE OF THE PEOPLE WHO WANT AGREE DOM

>> THAT'S THE WAY TYRANNICAL DESPOTIC REGIMES WORK KEEPING THEIR PEOPLE FROM GETTING THAT OUTSIDE MESSAGE OF FREEDOM RADIO LIBERTY AND ALL THESE THINGS THAT GO BACK DECADES WERE EFFORTS BY US AND OTHERS TO GET THE INFORMATION NECESSARY COMMUNIST REGIMES AND OTHER REGIMES THAT HAVE BEEN TYRANNICAL IN THE PRESS THE WAY THEY SUPPRESS THE ECONOMY IS THEY CONTROL EVERYTHING THEY CONTROL THE FACTORIES, THEY CONTROL THE PRODUCTS, STEVE

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT'S HARD TO CONTROL IS AN IDEA AND THE IDEA, FREEDOM IS CLEARLY INFECTIOUS AND CAUGHT ON IN IRAN IT'S REALLY A SHAME, YOU KNOW, THAT THE MEDIA HASN'T CAUGHT ON AS WELL AND DONE THEIR REAL HOMEWORK ON IT BRIAN: I THINK THE PRESIDENT IS PLAYING BRILLIANTLY IN SAYING I'M LOOKING TO SUPPORT A REGIME CHANGE AND SUPPORT THE IRANIAN PEOPLE AND SUPPORT THE PROTEST AND CALLING ON THEM NOT TO KILL THEIR OWN PEOPLE

UNBELIEVABLE THE REASON WHY SOLEIMANI WASN'T MOURNED BY 73 MILLION PEOPLE BECAUSE IT WAS UNDER HIS ORDERS THAT HE WAS SHOOTING PROTESTERS IN COLD BLOOD IN THE STREET YESTERDAY, THEY SHOT A PHOTOGRAPHER AND JOURNALIST DEAD FOR WHAT THEY DID AND FOR WHERE THEY WERE I WANT YOU TO HEAR HOW THE MEDIA THOUGH IS PLAYING SOLEIMANI'S DEATH DEATH

>> HE IS INTELLIGENCE THEY ARE OVERSTATING AND EXAGGERATING WHAT THE INTELLIGENCE SHOWS >> DO YOU THINK THE ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN STRAIGHT WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT THE REASONS FOR TAKING OUT GENERAL SOLEIMANI? >> I DON'T THINK THE ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN STRAIGHT WITH THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES >> IT WAS A VERY VEGAS EXPLANATIONS THAT WE GOT FROM VARIOUS OFFICIALS >> YES

I THINK THIS WAS A DRAMATIC MISTAKE >> ON THE NINTH EDGE OF A LARGER CONFLICT IS HE MORE INTERESTING IN OWNING THE LIBS THAN UNITING THE COUNTRY STEVE: THAT SEEMS TO BE THE ELITE MEDIA'S POINT OF VIEW IS IT IS ALL ABOUT DONALD TRUMP FORGET THE GENERAL AND HOW HE KILLED SO MANY PEOPLE, DONALD TRUMP IS A BAD GUY >> YOU KNOW, STEVE, SOLEIMANI WAS INVOLVED IN ETHNIC CLEANSING, MASS MURDER, AND TERRORISM

I AM BEING CANDID WHEN I TELL YOU THIS I SINCERELY DON'T GET THE CALCULUS HERE SO IF YOU ARE IN A NEWSROOM OR A DEMOCRAT IT'S BASICALLY THE SAME THING THE INFORMATION THAT GOES IN AND OUT IS IDENTICAL SO IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO DO JOURNALISM WHICH HAVEN'T DONE IN YEARS ERR ON THE SIDE OF SOMETHING YOU WOULD THINK A SANE RATIONAL PERSON — AGAIN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE WINDOW SO SANE GOES OUT THE WINDOW — IF YOU ARE GOING TO THE ERR ON THE SIDE OF JOURNALISM, AT LEAST THE TIME WE SHOULD AT LEAST GIVE DONALD TRUMP THE UNITED STATES, THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT BASED ON THE GOAL AND END GAME WHICH WAS KILLING THIS TERRORIST BUT I JUST TOOK A QUICK LIST OF THE TIMES THEY PARROTED PROPAGANDA FOR THE IRANIANS MSNBC PUT OUT THE OTHER DAY 30 DEAD AMERICANS, POSSIBLY, ACCORDING TO IRANIAN NOTICE ATTACK THAT WAS IRANIAN PROPAGANDA

THEN WE HAD SOLEIMANI WAS A REVERED FIGURE LIKE ELVIS AND PRINCE SAYS DI NOT A JOKE ON MSNBC NOT KIDDING HAD CNN GIVING A PLATFORM TO THE HOSTAGE TAKER WOMAN FROM 1979 IN IRAN FINALLY WE HAVE THEM PARROTING ALMOST WITHOUT QUESTION THE IRANIAN LINE THAT THE TAKEDOWN OF THIS PASSENGER JET WAS AN ACCIDENT

THERE'S NO EVIDENCE IT WAS AN ACCIDENT WE DON'T KNOW THAT HOW ABOUT YOU GET BACK TO JOURNALISM AND TELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THE TRUTH WHAT'S HAPPENING IS REALLY SHAMEFUL RIGHT NOW BRIAN: THE PRESIDENT SHOULDN'T NEED TO LEGALLY SAY IT'S A THREAT SOLEIMANI JUST THREATENED US THREE DAYS BEFORE HE WAS BEHIND THE ATTACK OF OUR EMBASSY

WHO WOULD THINK THAT HE IS GOING TO GIVE UP ATTACKS AFTER THAT? HE LANDS IN BAGHDAD THE PRESIDENT HAD EVERY RIGHT TO TAKE HIM OUT I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY HE BROUGHT UP IMMINENT THREAT >> BRIAN, IMMINENT THREAT IS SOLEIMANI HAVING A PULSE BRIAN: HIS RESUME

>> LISTEN, DID I THIS FOR YEARS HIGHEST LEVELS OF THE SECRET SERVICE DESIGNING SECURITY PLANS IN SOME OF THE WORLD'S HOT ZONES NOT PATTING MYSELF ON THE BACK THE TAXPAYER PAID FOR IT GREAT JOB

NOT TRYING TO BE ANYBODY'S HERO SUGGESTING HEY, LISTEN, DO WE DO THIS OR DO THAT IF THEY ARE GOING TO ATTACK NOW OR GOD FORBID ATTACK THE PRESIDENT AND THEIR OPERATION TOMORROW? NO YOU EVALUATE A THREAT BEING DANGEROUS BASED ON PAST HISTORY AND TAKE ACTION THIS IS COMMON SENSE ONLY A MORON WOULD THINK OTHERWISE

AINSLEY: PROTESTERS IN IRAN SAYING DEATH TO AYATOLLAH THEY WANT THE REGIME TO CHANGE WE WILL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THAT STORY LET'S TALK ABOUT THE FBI I KNOW THERE ARE GOING TO BE REFORMS THERE

THE DIRECTOR HAS SAID HE WANTS CHANGES TO THE SURVEILLANCE AND HOW THEY DO THAT AND HOW THEY OVERSEE SURVEILLANCE THE FISA COURT HAS SELECTED SOMEONE TO OVERSEE THIS ALL THE REFORMS HIS NAME IS DAVID, A FORMER OBAMA LAWYER AND LEFT WING BLOGGER WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT HIM AND WHAT'S YOUR REACTION? BRIAN: WHO APPEARS ON THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW

>> EQUIVALENT OF SELECTING LIKE ADAM SCHIFF TO BE THE HEAD OF THE RNC I MEAN, THIS IS A JOKE THIS IS — THERE IS ONLY ONE — THERE IS NO OPTION B OR C HERE, FOLKS LET ME BE CRYSTAL CLEAR THE SELECTION OF DAVID CHRIS TO DO THIS IS EITHER A STICK IN THE EYE TO EVERYBODY OUT THERE WHO KNOWS THIS IS THE SPY GATE IS THE BIGGEST POLITICAL SCANDAL OR BIGGER STICK IN THE EYE

THERE IS NO OPTION B AINSLEY: WHO SELECTED HIM, DAN? BRIAN: I DON'T GET IT WHO DID THIS? >> I'M NOT SURE WHAT — AGAIN, THE CALCULUS AND WHO MADE THE FINAL CALL ON THIS NO DOUBT THIS WAS A SLAP IN THE FACE GET A LOAD OF THIS ONE

REMEMBER THE NUNES MEMO VINDICATION KATEED BY CONGRESSMAN NUNES VINDICATED BY THE IG HE SLAMMED THE NUNES MEMO AND IN A BLOG POST THAT'S STILL UP YOU CAN READ IT HE SUGGESTED NUNES, I'M NOT KIDDING, NUNES COULD BE PROSECUTED FOR OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE THIS IS LIKE A COMEDY ACT

THIS IS LIKE THE NEW DAVE CHAPELLE BRIAN: PRESIDENT HAS GOT TO CHANGE IT NEXT THING I WANT TO BRING IT UP IS NANCY PELOSI'S TERRIBLE INTERVIEW YESTERDAY SHE CANNOT PUT TWO SENTENCES TOGETHER I DON'T KNOW WHY ANYBODY DOESN'T POINT THIS OUT

AGAIN, SHE BRINGS UP FARCICAL NOTION THAT ALL OF THIS HAS TO DO WITH PUTIN LISTEN >> THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS IN COMPLETE DENIAL ABOUT RUSSIA'S ROLE AS I HAVE SAID IN TERMS OF THIS PRESIDENT ALL ROADS LEAD TO PUTIN EVERYTHING THAT HE HAS DONE, WHETHER IT'S INN

SYRIA, VIS-A-VIS THE TURKS, WHETHER IT'S BEEN UKRAINE IN TERMS OF WITHHOLDING ASSISTANCE AS THEY TRY TO FIGHT THE RUSSIANS HIS DENIAL ABOUT THEIR ROLE IN OUR ELECTION THEN AND NOW, ALL ROADS LEAD TO PUTIN AND SOMETIMES I WONDER ABOUT MITCH McCONNELL, TOO, WHAT'S HE — WHY IS HE AN ACCOMPLICE TO ALL OF THAT? BRIAN: WHAT ABOUT KEVIN MCCARTHY? WHY NOT BRING HIM IN? STEVE: IS SHE SAYING, DAN BONGINO, THAT MITCH MCCONNELL IS AN ACCOMPLICE TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OR TO MR PUTIN? >> STEVE, NOBODY KNOWS WHAT SHE IS SAYING BRIAN: I KNOW

TERRIBLE >> YOU ARE LOOKING AT A BROKEN PERSON RIGHT HERE HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED SHE COULD ALWAYS FALL BACK ON THE FACT THAT THE MEDIA WOULD PROTECT THE FACT THAT EVEN IF SHE LOST SOMETHING SHE WOULD BE CALLED A BRILL CENTS POLITICAL TACTICIAN WHAT HAPPENED HERE BEHIND THE SCENES WHAT I'M HEARING IS SHE TOOK A MASSIVE FACE PLANT ON THIS IMPEACHMENT

BRIAN: NO QUESTION >> IT IS HUMILIATING HER IN FRONT OF EVERYONE NOBODY BELIEVES THIS WAS A SUCCESSFUL MANEUVER ANYMORE NOW THE ONLY LINE SHE HAD GOING THAT SHE IS THIS BRILLIANT NAPOLEON LIKE TACTICIAN IS FALLING APART WHAT DO THEY DO? THEY GO BACK TO THEIR SNUGY, WARM BLANKET

PUTIN DID IT PUTIN IMPEACHED THE PRESIDENT PUTIN DID THIS PUTIN INTERFERED IN THE ELECTION SHE IS AN AGENT

BRIAN IS AN AGENT OF PUTIN IT'S LIKE A SONG FOR THEM THEY DON'T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE IT'S THEIR WARM SNUGGIE BLANKET THEY GO BACK TO AINSLEY: JUST WHEN WE FORGOT ABOUT RUSSIA

BRIAN: AND SNUGGIES >> JUST LIKE THE GODFATHER JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU FORGOT ABOUT RUSSIA THEY PULL IT BACK IN THEY JUST CAN'T HELP IT IT'S ALL SHE HAS TO SAVE THE REMNANTS OF HER TATTERED WRECKED REPUTATION

NOTHING LEFT STEVE: DAN, EXIT QUESTION IT LOOKS AS IF IMPEACHMENT COULD HAPPEN THIS WEEK YOUR PREDICTION OF WHAT HAPPENS? >> I BELIEVE IT'S GOING TO BE A QUICK TRIAL DISPOSED OF RAPIDLY

I BELIEVE THE PRESIDENT'S APPROVAL RATING PROBABLY GOES UP ANOTHER 1 OR 2 POINTS ONCE THIS ABOMINATION IS OVER BRIAN: SEE HOW MANY
