why does no one trust the media anymore?
gee, i wonder...
watch as the hot question of the day from the press pool is “hey, why isn’t the president meaner to 38% of americans?”
this is not media asking the tough questions like “hey, why aren’t vaccines doing ANYTHING to stop spread? or even hospitalization counts?”
“why does the northeast look as bad or worse than last year on these metrics despite 95%+ vaccination rates?”
because those might be some interesting answers to get.
this is not even the media asking creampuff questions like “how did the president like his ice cream?”
in all honesty, it’s not even a question.
it’s just tee-ball for talking points.
the media is no longer playing the role of the media.
it’s enabling the role of a propaganda state.
these are not muckrakers, these are muck shovelers and it’s become as odious as it is obvious and dangerous as it is dishonest.
this complete credibility implosion is going to be one for the ages.
it’s time for a little building back of our own.
