The media giving the GOP any benefit of the doubt that they will "do the right thing" is so funny.

They have been so gullible for so long; Trumpism has made it so clear that our media lives in/comes from a bubble.

I don't think it's gullibility. I think it's quite deliberate. And I think the idea that the media is largely left-wing is GOP projection. They are intentionally giving bad faith arguments equal and equivalent standing to devalue whatever they're pretending to rebut.

CNN doesn't live in a bubble. This is the government they overtly want.

"Bern', you talk about taxing billionaires, but we're still cool, right?"

That's fair, I suppose I am giving them more credit than I should. I feel like there are two kind of mainstream media personality: 1) stupid and in the bubble, and 2) gatekeeper/stan for wealthy capitalist interests

Sure. I think I'd also add "3) Moronically and chronically devoted to the idea of fairness as a virtue" which describes basically any time NPR has guests on or interviews real life trolls. Though I think you could also chalk that up to a subset of your #1.

New Yorker interview with Greenwald

The parts about Tucker Carlson/Donald Trump are 10/10 cringe.

That was very thorough and I hope whomever wins adopts a similar plan.

NPR is state media, so they are going to work hard to do both sides-ism; they offer perspectives that won't upset the people responsible for their funding.

Joe Rogan is just a guy who got famous through NewsRadio (shout out!), The Man Show and his announcing on MMA.

The entire premise of the article is stupid as shit because no one really cares how many people he's hired/fired and all she's really saying is she wants to re-establish the establishment. Which is the corrupt, dysfunctional shit house that got that dude elected in the first place.
