Yes, this is something of a Dog Bites Man story. But long-time Democrat hack George Stephanopoulos (Remember him from the Clinton White House?) is becoming the chief anchor at ABC News. Yes, a Clinton hack just in time for Hillary’s White House run. (David Muir will anchor the evening “World News.”)
Yes, too predictable. But it gives me an opportunity to announce a new policy. I will no longer call ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The New York Times, etc. ad nauseam the “Mainstream News Media,” not even in scare quotes. From henceforth, I will use “Democrat News Media.” For that is what they are, and, unlike past days, they no longer make much of an effort to be unbiased or even appear to be unbiased. Their coverage, if it can be called that, of the various Obama scandals, pretty much puts the last nail in the coffin of their credibility. The vast majority of the time, they tilt or even suppress their coverage to advance the agenda of the Democrat Party. Heck, they even engage in literally cheerleading Democrats as I noted two days ago.
(That CNN incident and “news” media treatment of the Obama scandals were the last straws for me, by the way, in prompting this blog policy change.)
They are hardly mainstream and have not been for years. They are unofficial propaganda organs of the Democrat Party and should be treated as such. And, henceforth, that is exactly what I will do.
