The Boston Globe Calls for Business as Usual on Aug 16th

The Boston Globe as Called on the Press United as a whole to go After Trump on August 16th over dar­ing to call them out:

The Globe has reached out to edi­to­r­ial boards nation­wide to write and pub­lish edi­to­ri­als on Aug. 16 denounc­ing what the news­pa­per called a “dirty war against the free press.”

As of Fri­day, Pritchard said about 70 out­lets had com­mit­ted to edi­to­ri­als so far, with the list expected to grow. The pub­li­ca­tions ranged from large met­ro­pol­i­tan dailies, such as the Hous­ton Chron­i­cle, Min­neapo­lis Star Tri­bune, Miami Her­ald and Den­ver Post, to small weekly papers with cir­cu­la­tions as low as 4,000.

So as these thou­sands of News­pa­pers proudly com­mit to The Boston Globe’s call for a coor­di­nated attack on Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump him next Thurs­day to assert their rights as a free press and the Cable news media cheers them for their brav­ery for dar­ing to go after Mr. Trump I have one obvi­ous point to make:

Given that these out­lets have spent the last two years in a relent­less all out assault on Don­ald Trump and have spent every day since Jan 20th 2017 attack­ing this pres­i­dency in gen­eral and this Pres­i­dent in par­tic­u­lar what makes them think any per­son not already in the Nev­erTrump camp will notice any dif­fer­ence between their attacks on Thurs­day August 16th and their attacks of the pre­vi­ous 500+ days?

This is so self-​evident that only a group of peo­ple liv­ing in their own self-​congratulatory bub­ble could pos­si­bly fail to see it, which is of course why the press will not only fail to see it but will con­vince them­selves that hit­ting Trump Aug 16th, as they have daily since June of 2015, is an act of brav­ery with­out par­al­lel in the his­tory of journalism.

The proper response by those of us out­side their bub­ble, point at them and laugh!

The Boston Globe as Called on the Press United as a whole to go After Trump on August 16th over daring to call them out:

The Globe has reached out to editorial boards nationwide to write and publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what the newspaper called a “dirty war against the free press.”

As of Friday, Pritchard said about 70 outlets had committed to editorials so far, with the list expected to grow. The publications ranged from large metropolitan dailies, such as the Houston Chronicle, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Miami Herald and Denver Post, to small weekly papers with circulations as low as 4,000.

So as these thousands of Newspapers proudly commit to The Boston Globe’s call for a coordinated attack on President Donald Trump him next Thursday to assert their rights as a free press and the Cable news media cheers them for their bravery for daring to go after Mr. Trump I have one obvious point to make:

Given that these outlets have spent the last two years in a relentless all out assault on Donald Trump and have spent every day since Jan 20th 2017 attacking this presidency in general and this President in particular what makes them think any person not already in the NeverTrump camp will notice any difference between their attacks on Thursday August 16th and their attacks of the previous 500+ days?

This is so self-evident that only a group of people living in their own self-congratulatory bubble could possibly fail to see it, which is of course why the press will not only fail to see it but will convince themselves that hitting Trump Aug 16th, as they have daily since June of 2015,  is an act of bravery without parallel in the history of journalism.

The proper response by those of us outside their bubble, point at them and laugh!
