Joe Scarborough has some advice to the anti-Trump media. Don’t want to be called fake news (see Even Liberal MSNBC Slams BuzzFeed: “You Just Published Fake News!” and WaPo Demands You Stop Calling Out ‘Fake News’ After It Backfired on Them)? Then stop reporting fake news.
H/T to Jay Caruso for this…
Here’s the full list. I’ll give you a moment to compose yourself.
Here’s the thing that doesn’t make a lick of sense to me. The mainstream media, for the most part, has made it clear they’re the opposition party. They hate Donald Trump. They hate Donald Trump almost as much as they hate accountability. That’s fine because Donald Trump hates them right back. You would think media would view the challenge of covering Trump and work harder when it comes to reporting facts. You know, to take him down a peg or seven.
Instead, they’ve just managed to suck at life more than they did during the Obama Administration. New benchmark. They’ve reported a crap ton of “fake news” which plays exactly into Trump’s normal sized hands, as it turns out. Way to go, guys. Slap yourselves on the back. Or have Trump do it with his regular hands.
Look, media making donkey’s anuses out of themselves is fine by me. I find all of this delightfully entertaining. Except I do believe all politicians should be held accountable. This will be rather difficult if we can’t know what the media is reporting is real or the burps of a fairy godmother. Trump thanks you. The rest of the country? We’d kind of like all our news to be actual news. Thought that was common sense.
And since we brought it up, here’s Trump schooling CNN. More of this to come? Sure.
