The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

A compliant and deferential press is a powerful tool for dictators; how else do they communicate the wonderful news that gasoline is dropping in price from $2/gallon to $5/gallon! President Trump's term was marred by a viciously antagonistic media that minimized or hid his myriad accomplishments and inflated his real or imagined flaws and missteps into huge issues. They did a disservice to America, and they have destroyed their own credibility with the American people.

This is nothing new of course; the media have been left-wing whores ever since I can remember. Walter Cronkite's anti-American defeatist rhetoric during the Vietnam War was a shot across the bow. But compared to the frothing and frantic vitriol pouring out of the mouths of our current media, it was almost evenhanded!

But rest assured, the media will now bring a faithful and fair tone to the reporting on the current (mis)administration.

“We expect reporters covering the White House to operate in good faith and tell their audience the truth, and this White House will do the same. We are moving forward with that mutual understanding,” said T.J. Ducklo, the deputy White House press secretary. “Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated, and we’ll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward.”
The quotation is from Politico, and I won't link to them. But it is a chilling concept that the Biden kleptocracy will actively control who gets access to its propaganda. I guess it's not enough to attack the right-of-center media...they will take the next step and deplatform them.

In a sane world any media outlet that is denied access would sue and win, based on the recent court holding that the administration cannot deny access to particular journalists, but in a post-Constitutional era I have no confidence that the judicial branch will respect the precedent.

So look forward to glowing articles about Jill Biden's favorite designer and three -part articles on the new carpet in the East Wing. But probing or uncomfortable questions are a thing of the past, because the Fourth Estate is now a lapdog of the Biden regime.
