This there have been some truly galaxy brain takes in the press. We have CNN praising Biden for trashing their reporter, we have NBC hyping Rebekah Jones, we have “senior law enforcement analyst” for CNN Andrew McCabe’s idiocy on a shooting (more on that later)…
And then there’s this. CBS morning show co-host Tony Dokoupil giving his hot take on the insane shoplifting video.
CBS’s @TonyDokoupil excuses massive shoplifting from Walgreens in San Francisco: “That reads also as an act of desperation. You’re not getting rich off what you take from a Walgreens. You’re getting probably something you need.” @CBSThisMorning pic.twitter.com/FnqTyXnFfL

Well, I mean, I don’t know. You don’t need to be a hero over some toothbrushes or whatever it is,” he says about the security guard just standing there.
“That reads also as an act of desperation,” he adds in his best paternal, rich, white, liberal racist voice and face. “I mean, you’re not getting rich off what you take from a Walgreens, you’re getting probably something you need.”
I like how he was chomping at the bit to get his woketake on the record. He could barely let the others finish talking. He’d probably been waiting all morning to dump that steaming pile on America’s breakfast plate.
Putrid. Typical. Stupid. Media.
