Republican-Primary Debate Moderator John Harwood Asked Hillary Campaign Manager Jon Podesta What Question He Should Ask Jeb In an Interview | Main | Twitchy: Journalists Had One Last Chance to Grill Hillary Clinton, and They Did Exactly What You Expected Them To Do

The Media Has Ring-Led Social Media Hate Campaigns For Years.
Only When That Same Social-Pressure Tactic is Directed At They Themselves Do They Suddenly Complain.

Here's a storified version of some tweets I dashed off a week ago, when the media began complaining that reporters were being yelled at and made to "feel unsafe" by some Trump supporters. And Trump himself, calling them out.

Thanks to @trueholygoat for that.

Mollie Hemingway made many of these same points on Howard Kurtz's show this weekend. (Note: She hat-tipped me for "inspiration," so it's all cool. Sometimes my brilliance is so potent and insidious people can't help being infected by it)

Transcribed quotes at the link above, video below.

I don't like any of this ghoulish "we will slander you and socially ostracize you and even kind of Threaten you if you say something we don't like" "Call-Out Culture" (as the SJW's call it) world we live in.

But the media, as I say, made this world, brick by brick by vicious Outrage Scalp-Hunting brick, and only now that these ugly tactics of herd animal exclusion are turned on them do they finally complain --

-- but only of the tactic turned on they themselves. Everyone else is still subject to being frightened into silence for fear of being hunted by the Internet Wolfpacks the media itself cheers on and directs.
