MSNBC’s Katy Tur: She’s like a firefighter!

I don’t know what’s more irritating.

When reporters try to cast themselves in the role of the mistreated victim.

Or when they try to portray themselves as somehow heroic.

Last night, someone tweeted out this quote from NBC reporter Katy Tur that made me roll my eyes.

Katy Tur quote

“Like firefighters who run into a fire, journalists run towards a story.”

That’s right, folks!

Katy Tur is just like a firefighter!

Yesterday, firefighter Katy Tur had Republican Congressman Francis Rooney on her MSNBC show to talk about … what else?

Trump and Russia.

And when Congressman Rooney pointed out that Obama was the one who wanted Putin to know that he’d have more flexibility after he got reelected, firefighter Katy Tur responded thus:

“I’m sorry. I don’t know what you’re referring to, Congressman.”

Apparently firefighter Katy Tur didn’t go running toward that story.

How is it everybody else on Planet Earth knows about this hot-mic audio and the First Responder of Journalism doesn’t?

Way to sniff out that smoke, Katy!

    The disease that NBC has hiring Katy Tur has infected FNC to hire Marie Harf.
    What’s next?

    FOX’s news bunnies are smarter than MSNBC’s news bunnies (and non-irritating, except Shap Smith).
