You can’t just beat up the media …
Nobody trusts the media … As a reader of WTF MSM!? you know that the media obfuscates, lies, has ridiculous bias, and most of all runs cover for the Left. You aren’t alone in your disdain. A new poll, highlighted by The Hill, shows that a majority of the American public, of all political stripes, thinks the media publishes “fake news.” Of course we didn’t need a poll to tell you that.
Speaking of fake news … PBS’ Frontline gave Steve Bannon the evil genius documentary treatment recently. But it’s hard to trust anything they say when one of the producers got something so wrong. Our friends at NewsBusters cover how “Bannon’s War” producer Michael Kirk told C-SPAN something blatantly false about Bannon. Kirk said, “He’d never been in the military.” Except Bannon is a seven-year navy veteran, a point the documentary actually made. This is the biased lens the documentary was made through.
No, you can’t beat up the media … Look, as we discuss here every day, there are a lot of things that the media does that can leave you infuriated. But you have to keep your cool. If you are running for office, or even if you aren’t, don’t body-slam the press. Especially don’t do it if you are a Republican candidate for congress in Montana. It will seem like the right thing to do in the moment, but really it isn’t. Fight the media with words, not fists.
