It could have been such a great day for the MSM.
They had dreams, they had plans. They had beaten the “Evil GOP” meme during the shutdown to death, they had spent every waking moment declaring that the GOP was choking the poor and hurting the public, holding the country hostage.
They talked about the strength of Barack Obama who declared the Tea Party “Extremists” & “Terrorists”.
And then it happened. A car trying to crash through the barriers at the White House. They had story they were dreaming of, reports of shots and then the car speeding toward Capital Hill.
The segments and the stories were already being written in their minds, their imaginations went wild
Tea Party anarchist targeting Obama
The extreme tea party finally cracks
Obama Hatred leads to DC tragedy
Tea Party member holds government hostage…literally!
Early reports had the person with a gun & shots fired. The minds of the left continues to turn:
More Gun violence
Shooter was NRA member
Gun bought at Gun Show
When word got out Capital police were injured it Andrew Sullivan must have already been composing his headline:
Send the medical bill to Ted Cruz
With the timing of the attack 2:15 EST and a car being used the media dreamed of Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin on the radio:
Attempted assassin was Rush Limbaugh, Ted Cruz fan
The possibilities were endless! and then came the facts:
The driver wasn’t a Tea Party member
Wasn’t a person involved in politics,
Wasn’t a man
Wasn’t even white!
The driver was a black woman with mental health issues and a young child violating every stereotype the media held dear, given she lived in Ct. they couldn’t even blame her postpartum depression on lack of access to abortion.
And a two-week story about the violence of the tea party with heavy face time dominating the landscape faded toward the bottom of Memeorandum and the hour-long segments with just a little news tossed on it became a small opening before going back to hitting the GOP on the government shutdown.
It’s sad to see a dream fade so quickly
