Media runs the ‘sexist’ narrative but in their derangement miss the ‘racist’ one

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.

Impeachment blues for Democrats

Image result for nancy impeachment"

Two polls out overnight on impeachment. Both look like utter disasters for Washington Democrats:

USA Today:
41% support
56% oppose
Independents oppose by 11 points

Quinnipiac:
45% support
51% oppose
Independents oppose by 22 points, 58-36

Given the Senate won’t vote to impeach, the whole process has been a waste of time. All the Democrats have done is once again give President Trump 24-7 media coverage. When will they realise they just do his bidding for him? Most Americans are grabbing the popcorn on what the Senate hearings will unfold when the Republicans control the proceedings. This was always a danger for the Democrats. We’ll need an industrial size washing machine for all of the mud that will be thrown.
