With President Trump in office, media hysteria is in overdrive. No matter what Trump says or does, the media will twist it into a negative story. It’s ironic the same media outlets worked into a frenzy over “fake news” are desperately searching for any angle they can get to do damage to the President. Journalistic standards don’t matter when there’s an agenda at play.
Of course, not everyone is buying into the rhetoric.
That’s certainly the case for Brit Hume, who’s been a journalist long enough to recognize the hypocrisy coming from some of his media colleagues. Hume — possibly the only journalist with a memory span of more than 4 years — silenced media critics in less than 140 characters on Twitter.
Seems the media has been in hysterics over “evil geniuses” for a lot longer than most people realize. For weeks they have been pushing Bannon as this dark shadow behind the curtain…much like they did with Obama and Jarrett, and Bush and Rove.
Bingo! What Hume points out is important, because it shows the media is more interested in drumming up controversy than fairly covering the government. But it was a response to Hume that may have been even more on the money:
Karl Rove, of course, was the architect of George W. Bush campaign strategy, winning him two elections. The media wasn’t a fan of Bush either, and constantly hammered Rove in the same way they are hammering Bannon. It seems as if only Republicans can have the wrong people in their inner circle.
And what would Twitter be without some humor? This response might be my favorite:
