Media Throw EVERYTHING At The Wall To See What Sticks, by Ann Coulter.
Now that Trump has finally turned to the campaign promise that won him the election — build a wall and deport illegals — the Democrats, the media and even most Republicans are hysterical.
Just remember: They were hysterical about Ronald Reagan, too. You don’t change history by being a follower, particularly if the people you’re following are unimaginative, go-with-the-flow company men.
When President Reagan implemented the strategy that won the Cold War, he was opposed by the entire media, as well as foreign policy “experts” in both parties.
The New York Times and Washington Post produced nonstop denunciations of his “dangerous” policies. There were propaganda movies like “The Day After,” terrifying Americans about a Soviet strike on our country. Witless college students demanded cyanide pills be stocked in campus health care clinics, on the grounds that Reagan was going to get us all nuked.
Only after Reagan’s policies succeeded did these same hysterics say, Ho hum, no big deal. We always knew the Soviet Union was a paper tiger.
Frantically rewriting history, they claimed Reagan had merely continued the policies of his predecessors. …
How ignorant are the media?
People assume a minimal standard of decency in others and think to themselves, Well, Joe Scarborough wouldn’t say that if it weren’t true.
What viewers don’t understand is how lazy media personalities are. They are merely quoting what someone told them. They don’t know. Their expertise consists of memorizing a set of talking points, like ABBA memorizing the syllables to English words without knowing what they meant.
If journalists allowed follow-up questions and you could ask, “How do you know that?” The answer would be, “I heard it from a guy at Vox.”
The media go to extremely biased sources; they know nothing, so they’re not in a position to challenge them; and even if they were, they wouldn’t, because they’re on the same team.
