CNN Falls To A Little Blue Bird.
Well Trump said the hell with that and just as during the campaign, now speaks directly to the public how and when he likes and about what he likes. He neither wants nor asks for the opinion of the press, especially not CNN.
In this way the talking heads are out maneuvered at almost every turn. By they time they try to form a consensus reaction to one set of tweets he comes out with another that catches them flat footed yet again.
Then throw in the combination of the likes of Project Veratas that catches some media mafioso speaking honestly rather than in accordance with an agenda and forced retraction after forced retraction because they have abandoned any standards of honest journalism and they find themselves caught in a reactive mode. Their foibles, hypocrisy and lies become the news, not something Trump said or did.
The deeper and deeper Trump pushes the media and the Democrats into this defensive position the more outrageous and unhinged there responses become.
The mold is broken, they no longer control the narrative and there is no going back. Every politician, left and right, from City Council to the Senate is going to make social media the central aspect of their operations for the simple reason that Trump has proven it to be a highly effective tool. The MSM knows it and their not liking it isn't going to change it. All there protestations are now akin to a dead snake that hasn't stopped twitching yet.
But don't you worry my dear leftist friends. You still have stuttering Nancy, Mad Maxine, Liawatha and the 1% socialist Bernie on their side! Good luck with that because in the meantime the rest of us will be drying your salty tears for a giant batch of Margaritas!
