The Media Narrative Hunt at CPAC

If you want to under­stand how the MSM oper­ates the best illus­tra­tion comes from this very short video

Because why talk to one of 10,000 con­ser­v­a­tives excited to be at CPAC or speak with atten­dees and shoot dozens of videos with them to find out what they think if they sup­port Trump when you can find one Nazi look­ing for pub­lic­ity and paint all those who dare sup­port your oppo­nent in the White House with that brush?

Alas for them CPAC was smart enough not to play that game.

Well, things aren’t going too well for white nation­al­ist Richard Spencer who showed up at CPAC today:

Spencer replied that Griz­zly Joe is a moron who can’t dress: And shortly after this exchange, Spencer was kicked out of CPAC:

While not as impor­tant as the video above the next two videos show the pack men­tal­ity in action.

The best thing to do in that sit­u­a­tion? Aban­don the pack!

I think I’d rather be out there inter­view­ing a dozen folks in atten­dance rather than los­ing 40 min­utes in the hope of get­ting one shot as part of the crowd.

If you’re inter­ested in telling your read­ers a story rather than say­ing “look at me I’m media!” that’s the way to go.

Update of course I have my own fake news story but that’s for tomorrow.
