Shock: #FakeNews Media Rushes to Blame Trump for Annapolis Newsroom Shooting

MZ Hemingway collects up all the #FakeNews hot-takes, including one from Tater. Of course.

In case you don't know -- this had nothing to do with Trump, or any politics. The paper had reported on this lunatic's criminal harassment arrest in 2011, and then he began harassing and stalking the newspaper -- for seven years. Including threats.

But the #FakeNews media's stock in trade is #FakeNews, so they're pumping that out.

Maggie Haberman, who, as Chris Plante says, does not believe in Western hygiene practices and is covered by a greasy film, weighed in:

Noah Pollack called out the media for making the story all about them, as usual. Obviously, no one else in the media was on the radar of this local offender, but they're all pretending they were/are also under threat here.

Strangely, as the media castigates Trump for "inciting" violence against them, they ignore the fact that hours before this shooting, they were themselves inciting violence against Republicans and Republican elected officials, calling for Democrats to "play by street rules" and for the "street to rise up" against Republicans, to intimidate them away from voting for a conservative justice.

I don't know how else to read this except that they really think that only #ProgressiveLivesMatter and that therefore they can incite people to murder Republicans -- like Rachel Maddow fan James Hodgkinson -- and none of that matters, because only progressives (and journalists, of course) have lives worth protecting.

Maybe that's because Republican lives aren't human lives.

Someone should start asking them about this. Every day, until they answer.
