Skip to comments.”Correspondents'” Dinner and the Value of Bought-and-Paid-For MSM Propagandists

How can they seriously be considered of any value in the political arena anymore?
Needing any occasion to appear pertinent, this years gathering of White House correspondents did make the effort to remain relevant and address this issue at the previously vaunted annual Correspondents Dinner held in Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, elections have serious consequences, and the American people may have a different take on the relevance of the MSM. And despite how much MSM apologists would like to believe in their self-importance and value within American society at this time in our history, we the people are the ones who should have the final word on that.
The nature of the event has changed. Once it was a gathering of more or less collegial participants who threw a few friendly barbs back and forth. It has become the media equivalent of a show trial, where the ones with the real power may summon the President, abuse him without moderation, flaunt their gaudy feathers on camera, and depart having shown the country where the real power lies. It’s a mug’s game, and Trump refused to play it, and so long as the event is corrupted by inveterate hostility I’d hope he would continue to do so.
What an excellent article.
We need more journalists like him.
The fact that these Media slugs are actually surprised that Trump declined to show up shows me what IDIOTS these creeps really are.
It’s not hyperbole to say that the majority of these people are absolute human garbage unworthy of drawing another breath.
