"Commentary: The unbearable smugness of the press

Published:

Last Edited: November 10, 2016, 12:59 pm

Journalists have been too focused on social engineering agendas to know the mindset of the population. Great article but too little too late for the legacy media.



"Commentary: The unbearable smugness of the press

By Will Rahn CBS News

"...Journalists love mocking Trump supporters. We insult their appearances. We dismiss them as racists and sexists. We emote on Twitter about how this or that comment or policy makes us feel one way or the other, and yet we reject their feelings as invalid....."

".....But much of that starts from the assumption that Trump voters are backward, and that it’s our duty to catalogue and ultimately reverse that backwardness. What can we do to get these people to stop worshiping their false god and accept our gospel?

We diagnose them as racists in the way Dark Age clerics confused medical problems with demonic possession. Journalists, at our worst, see ourselves as a priestly caste. We believe we not only have access to the indisputable facts, but also a greater truth, a system of beliefs divined from an advanced understanding of justice......"

Thank you Jarasan, Maddog & Drenick. :) I love that red map too. Trump has really hit the ground running.

Both Canada and Mexico have agreed to talk about NAFTA, Canada to renegotiate it, Mexico to "modernize" it. Politicians negotiating with a business mogul ... wonder how that's going to end?
