So typical of the mainstream media. The White House press corps show very little respect for the office. While admittedly Trump can act in an unpresidential fashion at times, it doesn’t condone the media talking over him when he is trying to respond. CBS News’ Weijia Jiang kept interrupting his answer and he called her out on not knowing her topic other than the narrative she wanted to employ.
So typical of the media to play the ‘sexism’ card but we were surprised they didn’t try to drag in the ‘racism’ card due to her ethnicity. The truth is that other reporters, regardless of their genitalia, get roasted on a daily basis. His most frequent whipping boy is Jim Acosta from CNN. Can we get some perspective?
Here are the headlines from the media in response to the Jiang clip:
“‘Keep your voice down’: Trump has another confrontation with a reporter at coronavirus briefing” – USA Today
“With no good response for his lost month of coronavirus preparation, Trump snaps at another female reporter” – Washington Post
“How Dare You” – CNN’s John King
“Dana Bash calls out Trump’s treatment of female reporters” – CNN
“’Keep your voice down’: Trump berates female reporter when questioned over Covid-19 response” – The Guardian
“‘Just relax’: Trump repeatedly tells female reporter to keep her voice down during coronavirus briefing” – The Independent
It goes on and on.
Is it too hard to work out why trust in the media is at all-time lows? Just as Bill Maher pointed out yesterday, the mainstream media are handing him the election on a platter because they are too busy finding fault with sensationalist headlines rather than publishing news items which show that the actual outcomes are way better than the apocalyptic projections. Hospital bed capacity is well under-utilized but the media can’t help but quote North Hollywood event planners to get sensationalist headlines. Truly pathetic.
As Napoleon once said, “never interrupt an enemy when he is making mistakes.” For years we have been saying the best way to suck the wind out of Trump’s sails is to stop reporting about him. Yet all they end up doing is giving him 24-7 coverage for free. Who needs Bloomberg’s millions for advertising? The mainstream media are so stupid they don’t even know they are being punked. After 4 years they still haven’t learned. If a ‘p*ssy grabber‘ can get elected with that comment on the ticket, it sort of says that the public isn’t looking to him for tips on moral redemption.
