Editorial Boards of Newspapers Criticized Donald Trump for Being “Unworthy” and Saying That He “Utterly Failed” on January 6

Following the eighth committee hearing that took place on Thursday, January 6, the editorial boards of both The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post, both of which are staunchly conservative publications owned by Rupert Murdoch, have published scathing criticisms of former President Donald Trump.

They withdrew any support for the former president’s bid for another term in the White House and variously referred to him as having “utterly failed” by not defending the Capitol against the mob.

They also said that he had proven “himself unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again,” and they made both these statements.

In an article titled “The President who Stood Still on January 6,” which was published by Dow Jones & Company, a division of News Corp that is owned by Rupert Murdoch, the Journal’s editorial board criticized the actions taken by President Donald Trump on January 6, 2021.


The first sentence of the opinion piece states that “regardless of how you feel about the special committee that met on January 6,” the facts that the committee is presenting in the hearings are “sobering.”

“The most horrifying to date came Thursday in a hearing on President Trump’s conduct as the riot raged while he sat watching TV, posting inflammatory tweets, and refusing to send help,” said one witness.

“The hearing was on President Trump’s conduct as the riot raged.” Recounting the desperate appeals to the then-president to call off the mob and the danger to Vice President Mike Pence, the board writes: “Still, the brute facts remain:

Mr Trump took an oath to defend the Constitution, and he had a duty as Commander in Chief to protect the Capitol from a mob attacking it in his name.”

The board is referring to the fact that Mr Trump had taken an oath to defend the Constitution. He was adamantly opposed. However, he did not contact the authorities to request assistance from the military.

He did not get in touch with Mr Pence to inquire about the well-being of his trustworthy Vice President. Instead, he fanned the flames of resentment among the crowd and stood back to watch the riot unfold.

The conclusion of the opinion piece draws a comparison between the two men who were in charge of the United States government at the time.

It states that “character is revealed in a crisis, and Mr Pence passed his January 6 trial.” Mr Trump has completely failed to meet his obligations.”

In an opinion piece titled “Trump’s silence on Jan. 6 is damning,” the tabloid newspaper the Post, which is owned by News Corp., was more visceral in its condemnation of the former president.

The editorial board emphasized that Mr Trump did nothing to stop the violence for three hours and seven minutes and that he was the only person that could, writing:

“To his eternal shame, as appalled aides implored him to publicly call on his followers to go home, he instead further fanned the flames by tweeting:

‘Mike Pence didn’t dare to do what should have been done to protect our country and our Constitution.”
