Perhaps The Media Shouldn't Cover These MORON Protests

Just like their Cult Leader, these IDIOTS crave the attention. It's becoming like watching a train wreck....only 2 weeks in advance.

I find myself wishing bad things on these people. I do not feel sympathy, as I do for those out of work, who are staying at home. I feel anger, and thoughts & prayers that they contract the virus, so they realize their stupidity. Although deep down, I know that even that would not change them, and who they are inside.

1. Yep - AND - No

Yep on live coverage.

No - on NO coverage.

NONE of us should be watching these. Anyone who wants Trump gone - don't feed the beast (ratings).

Wait for the transcripts.

We don't watch these at all and are able to get more than enough from WaPo, Maddow, Morning Joe, Joe Madison, and Clay Cane.

2. On the TeeVee I saw a rainbow flag

along with the Gadsen and trump flags.

Next I suppose they'll be dusting off the "Black Lives Matter" signs as part of the spectacle.

3. Maybe they should cover them the way they covered anti-war rallies in 2002-2003...

...basically amounting to "yeah, this noisy thing was going on, bunsha people with signs, yadda yadda BUT HEY, LET'S TALK TO THIS HANDFUL OF COUNTER-PROTESTERS!"

Except now, the counter-protesters are only a handful because they're NOT a bunch of dopes.

4. I think we need to see all protests.

Free speech and all.

But media should start calling them like they are. RW lawbreakers. If we are supposed to be inside then arrest them.
Identify the screamer in the window.

Point out known instigators.

5. At least when they cover the protests they should firmly tell viewers about the groups and

PACs behind them, and drop the pretense they are somehow sincere, organic bursts of free expression. Show the MAGA hats and shirts, the Nazi and Confederate flags and don't ignore them.

Like the Trump virus shitfests, most people are having a negative reaction to these protests, so I have mixed feelings about pretending they don't exist. But it's essential to explain WHO these people are.

6. Or at least provide even a smidgen of context

Instead of sidewalk level photos showing the Nitwit Brigades clustering together, how about a little wider angle shot?

8. Apart from a handful of gun fondlers standing around holding signs, waving flags and blocking

a few cars, what exactly is there to cover? Their stupidity is the only newsworthy thing here, and the fact that Trump is egging them on.
