What Media Disdain for America Looks Like

It did not even take one day. On Sunday, CNN soft skull host S.E. Cupp drew attention for a message she sent out, addressing the conflict taking place between President Trump and the members of the media. Following another coronavirus briefing where the President had pointed words of dismissal for some in the press corps, Cupp sent out this missive of defense on behalf of her profession.
In less than 20 hours, the members of the media completely invalidated Cupp’s tweet. The long-running battle between Trump and the press we have seen in place for years now has not abated during this viral crisis. In fact, both sides appear to be gritting teeth and narrowing eyes during this crisis.

One of the benefits of people being sequestered in their homes is they have the opportunity to see the journalists of this country acting in biased fashion on a nearly daily basis. A number of business owners who have lent their corporate efforts to aid in getting the supply chain fed with needed goods were in attendance. One who spoke at the briefing was Mike Lindell, the maker of My Pillow. As Lindell spoke, the members of the media lost their collective minds, and lashed out in ugly fashion. CNN cut away from the briefing as Lindell was speaking:
Note how Velshi gives no details as to why Lindell was there. This is a supposed journalist, who struggles with the basics of journalism. A journalist might be somewhat curious to look into things, to find out that Lindell has converted 75% of his company’s assets and workforce towards producing much needed surgical masks for the healthcare workers.  this is what is passing for journalism these days.

You would think that in a time of crisis that the press would rise up and react to such a sprawling challenge. We would expect when the country is cast into turmoil the media would serve as a guide and strive to deliver needed information. Instead, we have watched with regularity as journalists have devolved into petulant scolds.
