No wonder the news media’s approval numbers are tanking

No wonder the news media's approval numbers are tanking

Last week Gallup polling showed that of the groups/people involved in the Wuhan pandemic, the American news media had the worst approval numbers by far.  In fact, their approval numbers were so bad, they were underwater by eleven percent.

It’s hardly surprising when you consider the fear mongering, the childish tantrums, the parroting of Chinese propaganda, and the eager excitement as the pandemic worsens.  None of that behavior adds up to positive approval numbers.

When you throw on top of that the news media’s tantrums over President Trump’s daily briefings while they invite know-nothings like Sean Penn on, why would Americans trust these idiots?

And in a sane world, a functioning news media would want to improve those approval numbers.

But the dopes in news media don’t occupy a sane world. They don’t even occupy the real world. These guys are so addled by Trump Derangement Syndrome, they couldn’t find the real world if we spotted them a map, a GPS device and a guide dog.

As a result, rather than reporting the news, these guys spend all their time complaining, fear mongering and sniffing condescendingly at those who are actually stepping up and helping at a time of national crisis.

And never was that more evident than yesterday.

Yesterday morning I saw the news reports that the company My Pillow would be shifting a majority of their production from making pillows to making hospital masks for those on the front lines of this pandemic.  Their goal is to produce 50,000 masks a day.

Sounds awesome, no?  Well, it sounds awesome to those of us who are not smug assholes in the American news media.

During yesterday’s Wuhan virus briefing, in addition to inviting Honeywell CEO Darius Adamczyk, Jockey International CEO Debra Waller, and Procter & Gamble CEO David Taylor, President Trump also invited My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell.  And the dripping condescension from these idiots in the news media was really something to behold.

While the other three CEOs were largely ignored by our Brave FirefightersTM in the media, Mike Lindell was mocked and belittled by these guys.

He invited FOUR CEOs to speak, you prat.  Why single him out?

See, normal Americans watching saw four CEOs whose companies are voluntarily joining the effort to stop the Wuhan virus.

We see it and swell with pride that companies are stepping up to join the fight.

But not the prats with the lowest approval ratings.  Nope.  These cynical, condescending assholes find a reason to mock Mike Lindell because A) he supports President Trump and B) he talked about God.

Again, and let me repeat myself, there were four CEOs from four companies at that briefing yesterday — Honeywell, Jockey International, Procter & Gamble and My Pillow.

Yet all the dripping condescension from the news media was zeroed in on Mike Lindell.  Because he’s a Deplorable, don’t you know. He’s “getting a plug for his company.”

Gosh, why do Americans think so little of the news media? It’s a real head-scratcher, ain’t it?

Now, while a lot of people were furious with the news media over this, I found myself chuckling with delight.

After all, on Sunday these self-absorbed idiots were bragging about how important they are in the fight against the Wuhan virus.  S.E. Cupp sniffed at those mocking the media claiming they were on the “front lines” of this fight.

And not 24 hours later, these self-important, condescending creeps were sniffing and scoffing at someone actually on the front lines because he was a Trump-supporting Jesus freak with a dumb company name.

To be fair, the American news media is on the front lines — they’re just fighting for the wrong side.

It’s just chef’s kiss perfect!

See, I want the news media’s approval numbers to sink like a brick in a pond.  Nobody should trust them or listen to them.  Nobody.

And thanks to the American news media’s own tireless efforts, we don’t need to lift a finger to get their approval numbers plummeting even more.  The condescending prats are doing all the work for us.

They actually think it’s a good look to mock and attack someone who is repurposing his own company to provide much-needed hospital masks during a national emergency.  That’s how completely tone-deaf and stupid these people are.

And an industry that out of touch with the country isn’t just non-essential in this time of crisis. They are non-essential period, and we should start treating them that way.

    What really got their undies in a bunch was Mark Lindell talking about bringing God back into our lives. They hate being told to go to Sunday School and learn.

    And yet another episode of “How low will they go?”

    The left and their minions set the standard alright.

    The Chinese Government and State Media? ACES!

    An American Citizen stepping up making an actual difference? Not so much… because, Orange Man Bad!

    Not to nitpick to much, but it’s Mike Lindell, not Mark.

    With their poor ratings and their constant screwups, what kind of idiot would advertise their products on their newscasts…. sorry, opinioncasts? I don’t watch their shows, but maybe someone should just put out a list of their advertisers, just for grins.

    As soon as Mike started talking off script, I knew — just knew — the leftist media was going to go crazy. And they did not disappoint.

    I’ll admit that I get sick of seeing Mike’s commercials, but this guy is a patriot. He’s DOING SOMETHING to help, as opposed to those jackasses in the leftist media/Democrat party whose only contribution is to bash, demean and act like flaming assholes.

    Well done, Mike!

    A long time ago, there were reporters who wrote factual accounts of current events. We called what they wrote “news”. Today we’d call those reporters the “news media” because we’ve got more channels than just newspapers.

    A few decades ago, the “news media” morphed itself into the “quasi-news media”. They bore a superficial resemblance to their predecessors but what they were writing wasn’t factual accounts of current events any more.

    Today, we’ve left the “quasi-” behind and instead have the “pseudo-news media” at best and “partisan propagandizing disinformation media” the rest of the time.

      A long time ago, on a planet far, far away….

      They’ve been at this for a long time. You should see what they said about Lincoln.

    How many People have the Liberals helped???? That answer is easy , NONE. Why are they Criticizing our Conservative views? Because they are the Enemy Combatants we’ve been at war with all along.

    I have to believe the S.E in S.E. Cupp stands for Sphincter Enema. Her parents got it right.
