‘Journalism in the Era of Trump’ update: ABC News reporter dubs Beto O’Rourke a ‘rock star’

ABC News’ Paula Faris also interviewed Ted Cruz for “Sunday Morning” segment, but even though Cruz is probably going to destroy Beto O’Rourke in the Texas Senate race early next month, O’Rourke is that one that was dubbed the “rock star” in the state:

But in fairness, maybe Faris is right — O’Rourke was once in a punk band. So, considering the most recent polls, Beto’s far closer to being a “rock star” than the next Texas senator.

Can you imagine a reporter covering one of Trump’s rallies and using 20,000 screaming supporters to call the president a “rock star”? They’d get run out of the “journalism” business, which is now as “fake news” as it’s ever been.
