EL Greg Gutfeldo has a pretty devastating commentary showing the incredible hypocrisy of the media reporting on the Tea Party 8 years ago as compared to how they cover the anti-GOP protests now.
It’s really worth watching.
I think I disagree a tiny bit as I don’t think it’s all “astroturf” protesting bought off by left-wing billionaires, but the general gist is correct. Just last night I noticed the absurd glee with which a CNN reporter seemed to love how clever the GOP protesters were, while the Tea Party had to suffer through the unfair slings and arrows of a hostile press. This is exactly why many Americans don’t trust anything the media says, and are susceptible to the idiocies of fake news reports and Trump’s constant and unrelenting lying. It’s all kinda crappy.
