Lesley Stahl makes me sick

Trump says to her,point blank! “You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you.”

Stahl loves her seat at the table of Washington elites more than she loves this country or democracy.

This encounter should have been known to the public immediately. She is a correspondent on one of the highest rated and most watched shows of the past 40 years and she says nothing. His duplicity should have been exposed on 60 minutes immediately!

She did the same thing with Reagan. She interviewed him and realized he was in the throes of dementia yet said nothing for 14 years.Imagine the damage she could have prevented at the time by alerting the public that Reagan was impaired and not capable of leading. We wouldn't be dealing with the "Saint Ronny" myth we are dealing with today.

1. It's sad

The Washington Press Corps in particular are no longer journalists and just regurgitate whatever talking point they are told.

3. "It's news because a famous/powerful/elected person said it"

is their justification for conscience-free parroting of blatant falsehoods.

2. Most long-time media figures

are a f*cking cancer on our republic.

They only stay where they are, doing what they are doing, by loving their position more than their alleged ideals.

4. Amen.

 

This is what happens when a "journalist" values her ideology/access/position above her job description.
