“If you’re a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies, that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him?”
Whoa, Nellie. The clear assumption is that many reporters see Trump that way, and it is noteworthy that no similar question is raised about Clinton, whose scandals are deserving only of “scrutiny.” Rutenberg approvingly cites a leftist journalist who calls one candidate “normal” and the other “abnormal.”Here's a great example. Caught this on FB the other day, posted by an outraged Democrat from a Democrat website and a headline that reads "Trump Defies Louisiana Governor To Heroically Deliver Play-Doh To Flood Victims":
The article scornfully denounces Trump for going to the devastated area, ridiculing that survivors don't need Play-Doh but rather food and water; the post doesn't mention that Hillary held a fundraiser and has taken the weekend off while Obama has played golf and gone to the fireworks for fun! fun!
The FB poster complained that it was "insanity" for Trump to go to Louisiana and "why why why" did he go there, as if all he did was fly there to deliver Play-Doh for a photo op.
Now, I have to say, you're a fool if you really believe that's all Trump did, but that appears to be what Clinton fans believe en masse.
Just comparing the way the media treated Bush's Katrina flyover with Obama's casual lack of interest in Louisiana's flooding or violent attacks on Trump supporters or race rioting (and targeting of whites) in Milwaukee reveals the utter bias.
So Trump's visit to Louisiana is the perfect example of true Pravda wilful ignorance and stupidity.
Did YOU know Trump brought an 18 wheeler with him when he visited Louisiana?
Did YOU know he helped unload those supplies?
Did YOU know he brought 70,000 pounds of supplies--including playthings for children--with him for the victims of flooding?
You have to ask: if I didn't know this, why didn't I know it?
What else do they not want you to know?
