BuzzFeed Reporter Has Audacity To Complain That He Was Blocked From Trump Event, by Betsy Rothstein.
Tough guy John Stanton, known for the chains on his trousers and the tattoos snaking up his arms, was not permitted to enter a Donald Trump event Tuesday night. …
This would be weird if Stanton worked for an unbiased news organization. But his employer is BuzzFeed. On Monday his site’s CEO Jonah Peretti announced that they dumped a $1.5 million ad deal with the RNC because they would undoubtedly include Trump. He compared them to “cigarette ads,” saying they are “hazardous to our health.”
Good. Trump keeps doing the obvious things, like not taking this presumptuous nonsense from the media. It’s well past time people stood up to the PC bullies. (Background.)
A Washington reporter noted, “Don’t have much sympathy for BuzzFeed and HuffPo. They decided to become activists against Trump, which is fine if that’s what they want. But don’t whine about not being treated like the Associated Press.”
