When A Media Narrative Blows Up
On the show today we hit a lot of bases. The story of an illegal alien in California who was arrested while driving his pregnant wife to the hospital for a scheduled c-section delivery of their child swept the media over the weekend and outraged liberals. Then, a few hours after the perfect liberal narrative-feeding story broke, it came out that the man had a warrant for his arrest for murder in Mexico. As quickly as the story went viral on the left for its “inhumanity,” it disappeared.
Listen to the show:
A few days after newspapers proclaimed themselves defenders of the First Amendment and condemned the Trump administration for criticisms of their work, Democratic golden girl Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez banned journalists from covering her public “listening tour.” Weirdly, news outlets who were decrying their treatment by the President didn’t have a problem with being banned from public events. Socialist Cortez has likely been advised to avoid the media because of her history of saying incredibly ignorant things on camera in friendly interviews, and the media doesn’t seem to care.
A panel on MSNBC talked about how President Trump is no longer the “leader of the free world,” and a columnist for the New York Times makes a veiled Nazi reference to Trump and declared he would like to round up and murder people. And no one, not even the “conservative” on the panel, said anything about it. Honestly, you have to hear it to believe it.
Finally, Al Sharpton makes a fool of himself (again). This weekend’s funniest story has Sharpton misspelling “respect” as “R-E-S-P-I-C-T.” It’s audio gold.
