CNN ‘journalism’ — a play in two acts

TOTAL mystery why so many distrust the media

CNN’s Brian Stelter hosts a show called “Reliable Sources” which regularly features Dan Rather as a guest, all while expecting everybody not to laugh at the irony. So, with that in mind, I guess what follows shouldn’t be too surprising.

And here’s Stelter this month after Trump made himself VERY accessible to the media:

Trump realizes there’s nothing he could do to make the “media” write or say anything positive, so he works around them. Meanwhile, the media keep doing more and more of everything that’s made them so incredibly distrusted by increasing numbers of people — and, even more laughable, the media blames Trump for it.
