Those Damn Pesky Reporters
« on: July 26, 2018, 06:11:00 AM »
The best way to understand the New American Politics of Trump is to just think if the whole thing as a wildly successful new reality TV show. The "reporters" need to learn the script, or they'll be replaced with new actors.

Proposition.

Trump's approval rating would jump up at least ten percent if Trump gets in Kaitlan Collins face and shouts "You're fired!!." 

That's what the great unwashed really want.

(NEWSER) Ė In what CNN calls "another serious escalation against the press by the Trump administration," one of its White House reporters was banned from a press event Wednesday, apparently because she asked questions that President Trump didn't like. As the pool reporter representing five networks during Trump's meeting with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker Wednesday, Kaitlan Collins asked Trump about the Michael Cohen tape and Vladimir Putin. The White House later announced that Juncker would be at a press event in the Rose Garden. Collins says she was told she was "dis-invited" to the event by deputy chief of staff for communications Bill Shine.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed that Collins had been banned from the Rose Garden event for "shouting questions" at the earlier meeting and refusing to leave. Other journalists who were present, however, say Collins, who can be heard on video here, was respectful and spoke at the same volume as any other reporter. The White House Correspondents Association denounced the banning of Collins as "wholly inappropriate, wrong-headed, and weak," the Guardian reports. Fox News also condemned the move, with president Jay Wallace saying the network stands with CNN "for the right to full access for our journalists as part of a free and unfettered press."

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

I suggest everyone on this board go re-watch "Network."

"Dunning-Kruger cognitive bias" is running rampant in DC, for sure.

I certainly want to know what Fox News show Sarah Fuckleberry Slattern will be hosting after Bill Shine gives her the bum's rush. Then I will take bets on whether she lasts as long as "The Quittah from Wasilla."
