Here’s a story about editors who shut themselves in their fake news lairs, shielding themselves from triggering reality (see KARMA: 3 CNN Employees Forced to Resign After Pushing Trump-Russia Fake News and Letter to FBI Director PERFECTLY Illustrates Why Americans Don’t Trust ‘Unbiased’ Institutions…). Now they’re giving us a tour of their reinforced echo chambers. They’re decorated with the hammer and sickle.
A panel of five editors were asked if they know anyone who voted for Trump. It goes about as well as you’d expect:
“I think not many.”
“I wouldn’t say half, but probably pretty close.”
“There’s a few among our close friends and family… a minority, but there are a few.”
“Less than half, but more than a quarter.
“And I think this is an important point… of course most people in the media don’t move in those circles.”
That balding English man said it best: Of course, the media doesn’t strive for balanced coverage. You know and I know reporting the news is a business. Even this website is a business. If ever you’ve pondered “why does the news only report on the bad that happens in the world” let me tell you why: you don’t read about the good news. We’ve tried it a few times ourselves.
Now the problem with leftist media is more than just reporting one story over another. The problem with the news media is their bubble. They aren’t aware of other people outside their mental sphere of liberal elitism. And if they are aware, they think themselves superior to them. Sure, people voted for Trump, but to the media, those people aren’t as valuable as the people who voted for Hillary. The people who voted for Hillary don’t want reports on the economy, they want reports that Trump is sleeping with Putin.
Yes, the media is out of touch. Yes, we’ve always known it. This video just captures the moment on video, in one concise little tidbit.
