Hey, Media, You Started It

What's also appalling is that reporters answered Sanders by reminding her of the tragic shooting of journalists in Maryland. But that had nothing to do with Trump. It was the personal grudge of a madman. Even when these knuckleheads are protesting being called Fake News, they are purveying Fake News.

. . . "But, like virtually everything Acosta reports, this is just a reflection of his small-minded biases. The fact is, having a group of people scream at you and denigrate you is exactly what it feels like to be in America — if you don't happen to be a coastal elite. It has felt this way for the last twenty years at least. Every television show you watch, every movie, every woman's magazine, every comedian, and, yes, every news program tells you you suck. Your country sucks. Your culture sucks. Your religion and your morals suck. And you personally are one of those dumb-ass racists who clings to his Bible and talks funny.

"If you believe your country should vet its immigrants, you're racist. If you voted for Donald Trump, you're racist. If you make a joke about Barack Obama on Facebook, you're racist twice. If you think motherhood is a woman's highest calling, you're sexist. If you take it ill when Islamists blow you up in the name of their nasty little god, you're Islamophobic. If you know that a man is a man even if he says he's a woman, you're transphobic. If you think it's fair to debate whether homosexual actions are moral or not, you're homophobic." . . .

Related, in fact, it inspired the above:  CNN bears a lot of blame
. . . On Friday morning, I had breakfast with some businessmen from Mexico.  They think that the U.S. is falling apart, even though the economy is doing so well.  They watch CNN!  I told to watch something else.
"Again, I prefer to turn off CNN rather than waste my time with Jim Acosta or anybody else at that network.  
"My suggestion to Jim Acosta is to stand back for a few seconds and wonder why people are angry, or more importantly, why they are not watching.  
"Doesn't feel like America, said Acosta?  A network averaging less than 1 million viewers per hour in a nation of 320 million is what does not look America."
