Isn’t it ironic that the news media’s on-air personalities are always the ones who brag about how journalists are on the front lines of every battle? From World War Two to Vietnam to the Wuhan Virus, those plucky little soldiers on cable news can’t wait to lecture you about how crucial they are.
Like S.E. Cupp. Because nothing says “I’m on the front lines” quite like logging on to Twitter from the safety and comfort of your home.
They’re on the front lines, don’t you know. War zones, refugee crises, Wuhan virus, and the most dangerous battlefront of all, getting criticized by Trump during a White House briefing.
I’m thinking the journalists who are actually on the front lines don’t fall apart when a politician criticizes them.
But see, to make herself seem more important, S.E. needs to glom on to those actual journalists on the actual front lines as if she and her fellow cable news talking heads are one of them.
Spoiler alert: They’re not.
See, Americans can tell the difference between actual journalists and those President Trump calls “the enemy of the people.”
S.E. probably knows that. But it suits her purposes to pretend that all news personalities are cut from the same cloth as actual journalists.
S.E. isn’t a journalist. She’s an on-air personality whose entire CNN career was made possible because she’s a putative “conservative” who hates Trump.
Actual journalists on the front lines are capable of remembering that they personally are not the story.
This, however, is not the case when it comes to clowns like S.E. Cupp – or anyone else in the corporate cable news media. These guys can’t even handle harsh criticisms from President Trump. Could you imagine them on actual front lines anywhere?
Yesterday, Brian Stelter — noted soldier from the front lines – invited on his ironically-named “Reliable Sources” novelist Stephen King.
Tell me how that is battling it out on the front lines of the Wuhan virus?
And when they’re not playing host to irrelevant actors or Trump deranged novelists, these plucky little soldiers have been unquestioningly regurgitating Chinese Party “statistics” as fact.
And not just China. They’ve also credulously repeated Russian “data” as well.
Here’s S.E.’s network from March 21.
“Putin is a good guy now and we can totally trust him,” says the cable news network who, for three years, told you Putin was the evil boogeyman behind Trump.
Yet now we’re supposed to just accept as fact the Russian government’s information. Which, it turns out, looks to be untrue.
This is from yesterday:
Since those plucky little soldiers on the front lines of the Wuhan virus were so busy burping out foreign misinformation, I’m sure that will come as a total shock to them.
Mostly because right now they’re too busy getting upset with President Trump for being mean to a belligerent, partisan White House reporter.
Such a brave soldier on the front lines keeping Americans informed about the Wuhan Virus by white-knighting for a fellow plucky little soldier who got dinged by Trump in a briefing. You go, S.E.! What a hero!
There’s a reason Americans have so little trust and confidence in the news media. And it certainly didn’t start with Trump “attacking” them with criticism and mean words.
But rather than deal with that lack of trust head-on, idiots like S.E. Cupp try to shame Americans for having the temerity not to trust them.
Because it is always, always about them.
No matter what is going on in the country, these self-centered hacks can’t see beyond their own noses.
The idea of self-reflection never occurs to them.
These guys are on the front lines of only one war: The battle to take out Trump.
Nothing — not a pandemic, not millions of Americans losing their jobs, their livelihoods, their homes, their savings – nothing will throw them off course.
And yet even while they wage this war against Trump, they still find time to go on Twitter and lecture you about not showing them the proper respect.
Such a pathetic band of losers.
