After an eight year absence, the almighty journalists have arrived, promising to hold the Trump administration accountable. In between self-congratulatory pats on the back, the media has decided to let you know how important they are. Start the parade, here come our heroes, and we need heroes. We need the free press, objective and honest. We need solid investigative and relentless reporting. We need it like eight years ago needed it, because today no one is listening.
The press decided to play smoke and mirrors for the Democrats, and now, no one believes them. They let the President clip their wings. Reporters who bothered to ask tough questions were berated (You know better than to ask that). The government was spying on the Associated Press, but all was forgiven. The president ditched his press pool, and Hillary Clinton roped them off. They allowed themselves to be weakened and humiliated, so pardon, but the faith in the strength of a biased free press that allowed itself to be reduced to reporting on a pop culture presidency and dogs wearing pants is a tad misplaced. Was this the same press that ignored and/or downplayed that Planned Parenthood was selling baby parts in order to get awards from the organization? The same press that covered for every Obama and Clinton scandal? Excuse me, media people, do you by chance want to talk about the Fast and Furious Operation now? Oh, you’re busy? I see. Jay-Z is doing an album tour and stopped at the White House. Plenty of time to promote Obamacare and other Obama agendas, but no time to report what’s really happening. Nice work helping the President ignore ISIS while they marched on Baghdad. Well, look at that, you care about Syria now? That’s cute. The media that ignored genocide wants to help. Great, help spread these hashtags.
It took crazy man Trump getting elected to get their attention. Oh, but here’s the best part: they wanted him as the Republican candidate because they were so sure he would lose to their queen Hillary Clinton. Thanks for taking that gamble, guys. Worked out swell. Maybe the media should spend less time telling us how important they are and more time doing their jobs. Don’t tell us about freedom of the press. We know what it is, you are the ones that took it for granted. Now go do something with it that doesn’t involve your ego.
Just a gaggle of people from all over who have similar interests and loud opinions mixed with a dose of humor. We met on Twitter.
