10 minute report on vaccine dead enders who are prolonging deadly pandemic bc of rampant, nonstop misinformation and “Fox News” is never mentioned
this is a media *constant*: this is all just happening. nobody is to blame. there isn’t a choreographed political and media movement to prolong pandemic

why on earth media purposefully gets this story wrong I’ll never know
my guess? press doesn’t want to accurately portray Trump voters who choose death over a safe and effective vaccine
we KNOW they won’t take vaccine . we don’t need 10 mins reports on that

question is why.

press terrified of addressing fact Trump voters have been brainwashed re: vaccine

continues a very odd trend of only shining spotlight on Dem women as “bad bosses” in DC
I wrote abt it recently; pressrun.media/p/are-democrat…
“The press loves to feature women when compiling lists of Beltway Bad Bosses. Yet hard-charging men in politics earn points for behaving exactly how the women do when they get singled out for running “dysfunctional” operations.”

nobody eagerly marketed Bush’s war like NYT
Dowd hits her “male colleagues” for falling for Bush war

that’s fine, but @maureendowd knows Judith Miller worked at NYT, right?
it was an institutional failure at NYT—men and women lost their minds during war run-up

DC elites will rush to defend Trump voters every chance they get

we have a demented, mob-like minority in this country that’s actively getting people killed via Covid, and people like Tapper are upset by Biden’s “tone”
this DC media fantasy persists that if folks just calmly, politely explain vaccines to Trump voters they’ll come around

forget that vaccine has been available 8 mos and polling shows 80+% of vaccine dead ended say they’ll NEVER get the shot

my latest—how the press ignored the rise of radical Trumpers; pressrun.media/p/the-press-fa…
“The friendly Trump voter coverage in recent years deliberately failed to pull back the curtain and reveal even small glimpses of today’s manic, demented, anti-mask and anti-vaccine mobs.”
“Five years ago, the press made excuses for Trump’s bigoted base by claiming they were motivated by “economic anxiety.” Then news outlets spent years courting them in cozy diners. Now they’re Covid zombies, and the press missed the story.”

Reminder: no other country on the planet has to deal w/ an organized, deep-pocketed movement committed to extending pandemic the way US does via GOP/Fox News
press plays dumb
millions of conservative Americans are brainwashed.

that topic is absolutely forbidden via media

same NYT that told Hillary Clinton to “go away” after she lost, is now breathlessly counting down the days until Trump announces another run:
misogyny is a helluva drug
