Reform the Mainstream News Media

Remember when Marco Rubio drank some water while giving the Republican response to the president’s 2013 State of the Union address? Remember how CNN ran a picture of the Florida Senator taking his sip with a chyron reading: “Career Ender”? “So can a drink of water make or break a political career?” Wolf Blitzer asked. Politico ran more than one column discussing Rubio’s “water thing.” Most other major (read Democrat) news venues covered it too.

So my question is this, if a drink of water threatens the career of a Republican, what happens when a former Democrat congressman makes sexual Twitter advances to a minor causing the FBI to seize the computer of his wife, the Democrat presidential candidate’s aide and a woman with ties to radical Islam, and the said computer is found to contain emails that potentially exposed classified information to our enemies so that said candidate could hide her likely influence peddling? Worse than a sip of water? Better? I’m asking for a friend.

The MSM isn’t worth “reforming” even if we had the desire, it is dying by its own hand, deservedly so.
