Patriots, traitors, and media

From Tim Hains at RealClearPolitics:

Noah Gray, a CNN producer covering the Trump campaign rally Thursday in Kissimmee, FL, uploaded this video to Twitter showing a Donald Trump rally attendee shouting at journalists covering the event. “Go home!” he said. “You are traitors! I am an American Patriot!” More.

We also learn, via BizPac, “CNN’s Cuomo comes right out and admits it: ‘We couldn’t help Hillary any more than we have.’”

Reality check: Perhaps we are on the eve of permanent progressive government. One thing to see is that legacy media, no longer gatekeepers, are climbing on board in a way they never had to do before. They are not just partisan; they are desperate. Hill’s win would keep them in business as her possibly obliquely government-subsidized (?) partisans, in a way that Woodward and Bernstein never needed to be.

It’s not that the public doesn’t agree with CNN – necessarily. The people who spend most of their time on their smart phones may very well agree that Planned Parenthood cutting up live babies for parts is okay. I don’t know. I do know that they don’t need CNN to tell them that.
