Ron DeSantis believes corporate media attacks are ‘positive feedback’ about his agenda

DeSantis Levin
The Governor shares his thoughts in another friendly Fox News interview this weekend.

The combative relationship between Gov. Ron DeSantis and the “corporate media” he derides was on display again Friday during an interview with Mark Levin.

In a segment on the DeSantis-friendly “Life, Liberty, & Levin,” the Republican Governor enthused about how attacks from the media actually validate his approach.

“Now, look, when you’re over the target, they’re gonna come at ya. But what I view it as, I view it as positive feedback. If the corporate press nationally isn’t attacking me, then I’m probably not doing my job. So the fact that they are attacking me is a good indication that I’m tackling the big issues,” DeSantis told Levin, no stranger himself to ideological back-and-forth.

The Governor mentioned issues like his fights against critical race theory and illegal immigration as examples of policies “a vast majority of Floridians and Americans” want, to the chagrin of “the ruling class and the regime.”

“When you stand up in this day and age that you’re in, when you’re speaking the truth, those folks do not want that to get out, and so they’re going to throw arrows at you,” DeSantis added. “I think that what we’ve been able to show is if you stand your ground, if you lead, if you don’t back down, just stand for the right things, there’s a groundswell of folks that will have your back, and that ultimately is what it’s all about.”

DeSantis has become a national figure, especially since the election of President Joe Biden, with whom he relishes contrast. He frequently polls as the candidate Republicans would most prefer as their 2024 presidential nominee in the event that former President Donald Trump does not run for office again.

The clip from “Life, Liberty, and Levin” appears to be a teaser for a larger interview to run on the Fox News Channel this weekend.

    Of course he tries to turn 100% valid points of criticism of his shitty job at just about everything he touches as a good thing.

    The only people who think he’s worth a rat fart are mindless lemming Fox watchers who don’t know they’re the problem with America because they like being ignorant and lied to.

      What Corp media has done for America’s Gov is make him a rock star! He’s golden within conservative Repub. party and base.

      Corp media along with WH staff built him up and made him very popular. They’ve attacked him. CBS and Biden team.

      He’s only second to Trump. Thank you!

    Gov. DeSantis wants to keep dark-skinned folks out of Amerika and wants to whitewash American history. At least he’s consistent.

      That’s a lie.
      Apologize, you are pathetic.
      Minorities, Hispanics and blacks placed him over the top on education scholarship pledge. Which he has expanded and delivered upon. You are sad Palmer.

      Sure Tom Palmer. There it is the Democrat talking point “racism”. That’s the card you and your party pull when you have nothing else.

    Well I see Gancarski flushed out three of the nut jobs that write on this board. Hey Tom Palmer what say you about MSNBC getting rid of Joy Reid? Are they whitewashing their staff over there?😜

    Far left loons desperate now. Telling lies hoping they’ll become truths. Keep it up, every word they say validates Gov. DeSantis!

    Logic leads to an obvious conclusion: first premise, the MSM is leftist in orientation and agenda; second, DeSantis is a visible and vocal opponent of the American left; conclusion, the MSM rejects DeSantis. The evidence is available by objectively reading and viewing the MSM and FLAPOL, particularly the three quackers above.

        I was just wondering if Desantis is using the Joseph Goebbels propaganda playbook.
        My beautiful wife died 22 years ago from breast cancer. I would love to have a conversation again with my wife.

          I am sorry for the loss of your wife, but I detest your spurious Nazi analogy,

            interesting that DeSantis is using many of the same propaganda techniques used by the Germans. Sadly they were techniques used by the Nqazii.
            Regardless, Christina Pushaw is the new queen of divisive propaganda and DeSantis is the King.

      Beth lets here your resume. You call DeSantis a joke is interesting to me. Here is a guy that attended Yale University. Was Captain of the baseball team. Attended Harvard Law School then entered the US Navy as an officer following 9-11. I think you are just an angry and bitter old clueless Democrat. What say you?

        intelligence and moral standards are independent of each other. Dr. Hannibal Lecter was intelligent, but would you invite him over for dinner?
        Impeach Biden—- “here or hear”? — if you get the right answer, you get to go to Yale, or are you just an angry and bitter old Troll hoping to be “here”?

        • Impeach Biden

          Comparing DeSantis to Lecter. Interesting what happened with your racist narrative?

          • Concern Citizen

            January 9, 2022 at 1:27 pm

            Impeach Biden, you are making up BS again. Where’s my racist narrative? Show me the NARRATIVE!
            Thought for the day:
            Is DeSantis a smart manipulator who is morally corrupt?

        Yea, Beth! He was captain of the baseball team!
