Time Magazine editor’s emotional meltdown over Trump vs. Obama

Send therapists, not readers. From Brent Bozell at Townhall:

Time managing editor Nancy Gibbs … thinks her magazine is serenely centrist and objective, which makes her a fool. Lest anyone take offense, consider the alternative: If not a fool, she’d be a raging liar. She boasts: “At a time when the media is ever more fractured and siloed, and much of it partisan on both sides, TIME is one of the few remaining institutions that speaks to a broad and global audience. … Our purpose is not to tell people what to think; it is to help them decide what to think about.”

Someone should please make an appointment to meet with Ms. Gibbs for two minutes and simply show her the Time cover of Trump’s face melting, and the cover of Trump’s face melting into a puddle. Is one not to conclude a wee bit of hostility toward Trump? How traumatically gullible does Time think America is?

This kind of bloviation is especially nonsensical coming from Gibbs. Take her valentine to Obama after his first victory. She placed him on par with Christ, saying: “Some princes are born in palaces. Some are born in mangers. But a few are born in the imagination, out of scraps of history and hope.” What a bottle of ipecac. More.

Reality check: This Satan vs. Jesus meltdown is a measure of the woman and of her low level of commitment to actual government as opposed to an endless progressive revolution. Which is likely why her medium is doomed, in a world where most peope will tolerate the one far more readily than the other.
