I don’t know how to look at this and do anything but despair.
I wrote this in December basically begging mainstream media outlets to stop doing what they are still doing to this very day mediamatters.org/voter-fraud-an…
Why do I even bother? I spend years of my life just begging media fo be better, to stand for something, to understand that it plays a crucial role in upholding a democratic system. But it just keeps getting worse. Whether it’s that what I write gets ignored or unheard, I’m tired.
The one exception seems to be CNN. @CNNSotu and @ReliableSources have separated themselves from other Sunday shows, so I definitely want to give them credit fo that.

Nearly two years ago I wrote about how Bret Stephens and Bari Weiss were bizarrely obsessed with schools. And nearly two years later, they're both still churning out article after article of the same drivel. mediamatters.org/new-york-times…
It's really the ideological inconsistency that bugs me the most. It's not that they have some sort of core principles they're trying to promote. They just want there to be more people saying stuff they like, and fewer saying stuff they don't. That's it. mediamatters.org/new-york-times… ImageImage
It's boring. It's lazy writing. It's pathetic, really. It's not new. It's just a rehash of things that have been written about for more than a century.

The fact that this isn't just the standard position in media, generally, is very telling.

No, legitimate media organizations should not go and cover a convention which has seven different panels about how they think the election was rigged (it was not).
And not just for opinion stuff. Seriously, how many news organizations send people out to cover CPAC every year but don't devote even 10% as much energy covering progressive conferences?
And just... I swear...

Journalists, I am begging you: if you are covering that, do not just live tweet nonsense being spouted from the stage. If someone says something false, YOU NEED TO NOTE THAT IT'S FALSE IN YOUR TWEET.

I responded to that tweet by noting that opinion pieces and reported pieces have different tones and suddenly I have a bunch of people in my mentions being like "lol, lib! cope! lollll!" like, wtf is wrong with people on here? Image
If you want to make a media criticism, you have to compare apples to apples, especially when the argument is "wow, tone sure changed." I'm pretty sure WaPo never used the term "kids in cages" in headlines of reported pieces.

Once again, the right-wing obsession with trans stuff outs the party of Dennis Hastert as a bunch of creeps.
Pedophile Foghorn Leghorn uses his limited amount of time to obsess over people’s genitals. Creep.
The Republican Party is a haven for pedophiles, which is why they obsess over that stuff.

So weird how this keeps happening! ImageImage
(You guys all get that they're totally fine with those views, but just responded to negative press to save face, right? Conservatives are a conspiracy cult)

Is it the guy who loves Hitler? No, wait, he's still on the site...
Oh, wait, I know. It's the guy who called himself "David Duke without the baggage" and spoke to crowds of white supremacists. Right?
