Having posted yesterday, I was not eager to do so again so soon, but I’m so mad watching a Trump so-called press conference provide this morning a platform for Trump to spew his twisted narrative of events, I just have to.
PRESS PEOPLE: You know that this is happening, that he bats your feckless questions away or employs them to bring up another distortion or lie. Then after his “speech” you sit in groups and analyze much of what he says as if any of it can be taken seriously, as if he won’t come up with something completely different later today or tomorrow. Depending on the wisdom of his gut.
The guy has no respect for the truth, so why believe anything he says.
What you are doing is providing this scoundrel with yet another platform for his fabricated narrative. His propaganda. Hey, I am empathetic. I don’t have any marvelous suggestions. I just know Trump has beaten you at the traditional journalistic game and you need to stop playing that game and create a new one.
Maybe like a labor union you can go on strike. In your case making a group statement that you will not attend these charade sessions any more unless you can challenge Trump (and his mouthpieces) on his lies. Of course, he wouldn’t allow that……………………
…..so what’s next? I don’t know. That’s your job to figure it out.
