Let me tell you how this Roy Moore smear was supposed to play out.
The Washington Post breaks the story.
Immediately other news sources pile on and repeat the claims – all the while expressing their horror and shock.
Then Republicans in Congress react with disgust and demand that Roy Moore leave the race.
Faced with the building tide of anger from both the media and Washington, voters quickly abandon the candidate in droves.
And Roy Moore issues a tearful apology and drops out.
Finally, with the Republican Party in chaos — and with little time for a replacement to campaign — the Democrat wins running away.
And the media celebrates their success.
But there’s just one problem.
They underestimated our distrust of the media.
Yesterday, Breitbart reported that a local Alabama ABC affiliate tried to find one voter who actually believed the Washington Post smear.
And they couldn’t find a single one.
It wasn’t supposed to happen this way.
The media still fails to grasp just how little we believe them anymore. They still live under the misguided notion that all they have to do is release the smear and we fall for it hook, line and sinker.
And in their desperation over our not playing our part, the news media is resorting to the most outlandish claims.
They’re accusing us of “supporting a pedophile” or “defending pedophilia.”
No, you idiots.
We just don’t believe you anymore.
Yesterday, on CNN, the always idiotic Chris Cuomo declared that the accusation against Roy Moore – in and of itself – is “proof.” [Hat tip Newsbusters]
“Sure. If a woman comes forward and says that this happened — Someone coming forward with testimony is evidence. You could have other evidence… You can do other things in terms of the legal process. But if you come forward and say this person did this to me, that counts.”
Really, Chris? Can you believe this guy has a law degree?
Okay. I am finally – after many years of silence – coming forward to say Chris Cuomo offered me one hundred dollars to spank his naked bottom with a dead mackerel.
That’s all the proof you need that Chris Cuomo is a perv with a dead fish fetish.
Sure, you could have other evidence. But my coming forward and saying Cuomo did to this me – that counts.
What an idiot.
So why are they scrambling and resorting to slanderous attacks and stupid excuses like this?
Because they underestimated our distrust of the media.
They just assumed that the smear would work according to plan. You know, the way every other smear against a Republican worked in the past.
But it didn’t. Because they underestimated our distrust of the media.
Sure, it worked on the Republicans in Congress and so-called Republican “luminaries” like Mitt Romney.
But I think that has less to do with them believing the smear and far more to do with them desperately wanting a reason to jettison Roy Moore.
Let’s face it. The Washington Post could have accused Moore of being a lizard-like alien dressed in human skin and the likes of Mitch McConnell and John McCain would have used that as a reason to throw Moore under the bus.
And that’s exactly why they wasted no time tut-tutting and well-I-nevering over the accusation.
But it does the media no good for Republicans to abandon Moore if the voters don’t.
And not only did they underestimate our distrust of them, they overestimated our respect for the likes of John McCain and Mitt Romney.
You’d think after the Washington Post tried to drive a wedge between Trump and his voters using the Access Hollywood tape, they would have realized that the formula doesn’t work anymore.
Voters didn’t give a damn that Republicans in Congress (and Mitt Romney) were demanding Trump drop out. We stuck by him.
Because we don’t care what the Establishment Republicans think.
And we do not trust the news media.
To quote the late Andrew Breitbart, “We are on to you.”
You guys in the news media has zero moral authority. None.
More importantly, you guys have tossed aside what little integrity you may have once had.
We don’t trust you to tell us the truth.
We sure as hell don’t trust your motives.
And without that trust, your smears don’t work on us anymore.
