Every single journalist, every single media outlet that has over past 10 years or more allowed @GOP to lie through their teeth in interviews and on camera, and presented it as a "point of view" is responsible for what is happening in this country right now. every single one 1/
Every single journalist and media outlet that built up @GOP and @SenateMajLdr and called @SpeakerRyan a "wonder boy" is at fault for where we are now. Every single on of those who built up @realDonaldTrump for ratings and money over 30 years is at fault. 2/
From @MarkHalperin to @MLauer to all the rest of you and you know who you are who sought to provide "balance" by inviting liars on shows and into interviews and falling to challenge them and then turned around and grilled Dems as though they were equal... you are at fault. 3/
Every single outlet from @NPR to @ @MSNBC to @CNN who brought on sycophants, liars, & conspiracy theorists such as @BreitbartNews, @HughHewitt, @BritHume as though they were honest brokers... you are at fault. Because slowly over time you enabled fascism for your own benefit. 4/
And now you can have @SenateMajLdr get on radio and say that there were "many hearings and markups on this bill....". Where? When? Are you asking him? Are you challenging that? Have you asked him to name ONE??? One hearing? No... you just give him a mike. It's disgusting. 5/
And today's @nytimes headline? "big Win for Trump." Really? Really @Nytime? How about "Tax Scam Passes Amidst Chaos and False Claims" ?? that would be an accurate headline. But ... @deanbaquet is afraid to actually run a newspaper. He'd rather do soft-reporting Nazi stories. 6/
Journalism is supposed to be about speaking truth to power, informing people, challenging power. But journalists have become so embedded in the power structure, they are so co-opted and so complicit at this point, it's no wonder we are here. 7/7/
