Kurt Schlichter is right: the news media doesn’t deserve our trust

Schlichter is right

Saturday, the Washington Post offered up this hot take over the outrage at Kate Steinle’s murderer being acquitted.

And they wonder why we don’t trust the news media anymore.

In response to this kind of flagrant idiocy, Kurt Schlichter penned what I think is the best damn column on the state of the modern media.

And it is a must-read.

His latest Townhall column, The Mainstream Media Doesn’t Deserve Our Respect or Our Trust is a home run.

Here are just a few nuggets worth sharing.

The mainstream liberal media is primarily composed of stumblebum leftist jerks who want all the glory and respect due a caste of objective, moral truth-seekers, yet who don’t want to do the hard work of actually being objective or moral or seeking the truth. “I can’t pass, and I can’t tackle, and practice is really a hassle, but I’m wearing a sportsball jersey so I want your adulation and a Super Bowl ring!”

If the Washington Post really wanted to be taken seriously as a news outlet, would they title a piece “White nationalists angered by Mexican immigrant’s acquittal in Kate Steinle’s killing?”

Only “white nationalists” are angry?

That will come as a surprise to people like Jamiel Shaw whose own son was killed by an illegal alien.

If the Washington Post wanted to be trusted to report the objective truth, why do they refer to Steinle’s killer as a “Mexican immigrant” and not as a 5-time deported illegal alien felon?

Schlichter is right. They demand respect that they have not in any way earned.

But he goes on:

Remember, to our intrepid media, news is only news if it helps the liberal narrative. If it doesn’t, it’s not news. It’s not anything. It’s un-news. Like the stock market boom. Like wiping out the ISIS caliphate. Like Mueller’s manifest conflicts of interest. Un-news. Remember, half the job of the mainstream media is generating metaphorical tumbleweeds.

Is it any wonder that the majority of Republican voters in Alabama do not believe the allegations against Roy Moore?

Whether it’s the Washington Post or ABC News’ Brian Ross, the news media has done nothing to regain the trust and respect it frittered away during the last two years.

But, of course, the mainstream liberal media hacks are not real journalists. They are transcriptionists for their progressive masters when they aren’t molesting the interns.

The truth is, we don’t need Donald Trump accusing the media of being “Fake News.” Why should we when they seem hell-bent on proving it to us on a daily basis?

If you haven’t read Kurt Schlichter’s column yet, take the time and read it now.

It’s that good.

    Kurt Schlichter hit a homerun and so did Dianny.

    The propaganda in our media, at all levels of media including entertainment, is so bad it would make Stalin and Hitler blush.

    The left keeps creating new and creative ways to coordinate media messages.

    Would that we were so energetic.
