So Melania Trump gives a decent enough speech… So what does the lame-stream media do? Follows their orders from the DNC and immediately parrots the DNC talking points that were issued within minutes of the speech: Melania “plagiarized” Michelle Obama’s speech from 2008.
No focus on Melania’s whole speech – coming to America and loving it rather than actually plagiarizing Obama’s speech, a crabbed, angry speech only rescued by her confession that she finally thought America was worthy of her because it had nominated her husband.
No, it hung on the Democrats’ whine that half a dozen sentences resembled another half a dozen sentences on the topic of family values.
This dog whistle groupthink response to Melania Trump… Crush, Kill, Destroy…
Anyone doubt how “Amazing,” “Historical,” “Epic,” “Truly Patriotic,” etc. the speeches from Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton are going to be labeled by the media?
And the folks in the media wonder why so many people, especially Republicans and conservatives, have walked away from newspapers along with broadcast and cable news programming.
I work in the media. I’m never surprised by the liberal mentality of my colleagues. Not all are liberals but the liberals dominate and they think that EVERYONE agrees with them (except for the scary rubes in-between the coasts). Derogatory comments about Republicans (and conservatives) are issued as easily as if one were commenting on the hot, humid summer weather in Washington. Even from people on the supposedly “business” side of the industry such as ad sales.
They really cannot conceive that some colleagues might not agree with them. Sometimes I don’t think they would even care if they knew.
Tuesday morning I caught a few minutes of one of the local idiotic morning shows, “Good Morning Washington.” They are a reliable barometer of media groupthink. You’d have thought by their coverage that Melania’s speech was about 15 seconds long. It could not have been scripted any better by the DNC if it had been shot at their headquarters.
And the show has reliably done the same with each recent cop shooting. The morning after they trot out some fresh-faced Black Lies Matter members or supporters. The questions are softballs and never, ever reflect anything that previously happened. The BLM coterie insist that they are wonderful and peaceful people who never say anything vociferous. They are all well-meaning community activists. One of them insisted that rap and hip-hop are never angry but always peaceful and loving. The bubble-headed show hosts go right along, never asking a critical question or inquiring about the incident.
This type of cluelessness can’t be completely accidental.
And then there is something like this – the blatant, bald-faced (possibly psychotic) lying of Hillary Clinton on a TV program. Imagine if this were a Republican, we’d never hear the end of it. The media would be asking when the Republican was going to surrender the nomination and they’d be demanding every Republican that can be found “condemn” the lies.
But a Democrat?
Nothing to see here. Move along. Hey, did you hear, Donald Trump said something we don’t agree with?
And they wonder why they are held in the same esteem as Congress and used car salesmen.
