The Morning Rant

talking ape  02 mask.jpg

I once read an interview of one of the early conservative critics of the MSM, I think it might have been Reed Irvine, and at one point he was relating how naive he was when he first noticed just how liberally biased the East Coast media was. He wrote to the editors of the Washington Post explaining his observations, including examples, and he ruefully admitted that he expected to hear them say oh gosh, thank you for bringing this to our attention, Mr. Irvine, we'll get on this problem right away. Of course, all he got was a big fat lolgf. Irvine was laughing at himself for being so naïve. But it's the same now as it was back then: the media, sanctimonious as ever, not merely asking for but absolutely demanding respect simply cannot abide criticism. And, as one of you morons observed, there's no profession that more enjoys smelling its own farts.

When Thomas More said that the devil cannot endure to be mocked, he could've been talking about our media. Of course, Trump is beyond mockery, he's pretty much just mooning them now.

And we know that the reason the media was all in on downplaying the threat early on was because Trump was actually taking steps, but they said he was "overreacting." The MSM automatically knee-jerks against anything Trump does. If Trump does it or says it, it's wrong. And they don't know how stupid it makes them took. Remember that Trump actually got Nancy Pelosi to defend the psychotic MS-13 thugs at one point.

And yesterday, when Trump, who was tired of having them gaslight his response during the early days of the coronavirus outbreak, played their own words back at them and the howls of outrage from the press was as if you had sprinkled holy water on a vampire. And then Tater Stelter tweeted (which I can't find now) something to the effect that the President should be focused on the future rather than on what happened in the past. In other words, pay no attention to the fact that we lied about what Trump was doing back then, and are attempting to gaslight America about it now. Because for progressives, nothing matters about what they said at any time except for what they're telling you and what they want you to believe right now. Every day is the first day of Year Zero, and before that, who cares, it's gaslights all the way down.

You know how to get Trump mad? Lie about him.

And you know how to get the MSM mad? Quote them.
