HOW THE MEDIA VIEWS ITSELF

New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas appeared as a panelist on the Sunday Today Show this week with Willie Geist. At one point he began to speak. He suddenly began to mumble and stumble over his words with phrases about journalistic responsibility and integrity and bias. He had trouble sticking words together in a coherent sentence. Obviously he wanted to say something, but was having trouble expressing himself. Not to worry. I can translate for you and tell you exactly what he was trying to say. What he wanted to say was, “Donald Trump is such a threat to ‘constitutional order’ that the media was duty bound to abandon any pretense of reporting the facts in an unbiased fashion and do whatever may be necessary to elect Hillary Clinton. Forget about journalist integrity.”

I’ve got a news flash for Anand. All the lamestream media has had for years is a “pretense” of unbiased reporting. Journalistic integrity disappeared long ago.
