Not newsworthy

That was the reason Rachel gave for MSNBC not covering the fg's speech live. And of course, CNN is covering the whole thing live. Wonder if CNN will even do any fact checking when it's over.

It sure was right friendly of Garrett Haeke

or whatever his name is (of MSNBC) to let MTG run her mouth in her SUV when the protestors stopped her from lying at her permitless protest. The media must hear from her at all costs with no pushback it seems.

Here's an idea: Since there are more anti rump protesstors, maybe one of them could be interviewed? I know, that's crazy talk.

An absolutely perfect word for what the media is doing to themselves today. Really, a black eye for the press today.

I will phrase this in the form of a humble suggestion

instead of a patronizing order such as I receive here every time I post criticism of the media's coverage of tfg. Please don't watch this over the top, breathless fan coverage of the orange one's motorcade. You can if you wish, of course, but to me this right up there with covering the empty microphone for hours waiting for the orange one to appear in 2016. Let's make their ratings go down.

If we reward this, can you imagine what their coverage of 2024 will be like? They have learned absolutely nothing.

There really is no good reason for CNN and MSNBC

to frame the indictment story from the rightwing's perspective. Everything is will this hurt tfg and how much, will it help him, what do other rightwingers think, will tfg surrender, will he lose his base ad nauseum.

It's almost like it's illegal to ask what Dems or even Independents (you know, the combo you need to win an election) think. They're just written out of the picture.

Now why do you think that is?

The real reason they don't like woke

is because a woke population would be open to all kinds of the things that mean higher taxes for the richest: universal healthcare, livable wage, funded public schools, decent infrastructure, etc. Being empathetic to others causes people to want these things to be funded and the rich aren't gonna put up with that.

Look at the main pusher of anti-woke B.S. Ron DeSantis is funded by billionaires and the elite. He takes his marching orders from them. Obviously, he can't say I don't think the rich should pay for any of the things you need. He has to dress it up in some downhome way to make the rightwingers buy into it.

It's always all about the richest people's money no matter what they say.

There is NOTHING worse than a CNN panel on a day like this!

Will this help Trump? Over and over again. Switched to them for a second and Tapper (of course was asking this VERY original question) Switched back after fifteen minutes and they were STILL talking about it. Hint to highly paid beltway journalists: The right is gaslighting you about that and you are doing their PR for them.

Was just confirmed on CNN

that shooter was transgender. And there was some kind of manifesto. I personally don't care how they identify. GET RID OF THE GUNS.

CNN start page headline is barfworthy

The headline is America has an education Problem Virginia has the Answer
Then, if you click on it is even worse. It's written by Younkin. Wow. He sure is cocky. What did educators and students do before he rode in on his white horse?

It's bad enough that Tapper had a "town hall" or more realistically, a free campaign commercial for GY a few days ago.

Find you a partner who looks at you the way

cable news hosts look at the newest repuke Presidential candidate. The coverage of NH is completely over the top. Apparently, we will be treated to breathless coverage of her every move. For me, it's bringing back memories of 2016 and the countless hours of trump coverage.

Dems need to relentlessly point out that she is anti choice and anti democracy among many other horrible policy positions. Her smiling cutsie act is already making me ill.
