The Morning Rant

"Remember when President Trump called CNN "the enemy of the people", and how pretty much everyone in the hair-on-fire media basically ran around like, well, like their hair was on fire? And how the endlessly proclaimed that the President's remarks were some kind of Clear and Present Danger to serious journalisming like CNN and serious journalismists like Jim Acosta who, presumably, were afraid they might get gunned down in the streets by a hate mob? Actually, in reality, the only hate mobs in the streets these days are left-wing and the only danger the Serious Journalismists need to be afraid of is getting laughed at and called out for being lying whores by normal Americans -- which, in the view of journalismists, is worse than getting shot, but that's not my point. My point is, Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth "1/1024th" Warren recently decided that her path to electoral success involved attacking Fox News, so she loudly harumphed that she turned down an invitation from Fox, which she called "a hate-for-profit racket", to do a town hall. I have a couple of questions about this. The first is: has it now become OK to publically smear the media and call them names? When did that change? I mean, why hasn't Serious Journalismist Brian 'Tater' Stelter called out Senator Warren for her heinous attack on the integrity of the Serious Profession of Journalisming like he did when Trump called CNN a fake news clown car? I guess not all attacks on the media are equal. The other question I have is: who is the brainiac in the Warren campaign who told her to spike the ball in her own end zone? Because she just kind of owned herself, much like she did with the release of her DNA results. Whether she likes it or not, many Americans watch Fox News, and she just p*ssed on all of them. And these are precisely the votes she needs if she ever hopes to win. This is just a massive self-own by Warren, another one. The only people cheering this are blue-state progressives. Unless her strategy is to write off the red states as hopeless and deplorable and concentrate on racking up huge majorities in the blue states. But before she continues down that path, she might want to ask Hillary how that strategy worked for her in 2016."
