CNN's Brian Stelter: Trump Victory A “National Emergency”
It has become inescapably clear that rather than attempt to break free from the ideological echo chamber in which they exist, liberal journalists in the mainstream media are only doubling down on progressive propaganda — descending ever further into self-parody.
Enter Exhibit A: an astonishing exchange between CNN’s media analyst Brian Stelter and journalists Liz Wahl and Julia Ioffe that occurred on Sunday. In that one conversation, Wahl insisted Trump’s win undermined “our democracy,” Ioffe expressed bewilderment at the fact that the people no longer take the mainstream media’s word as sacrosanct, and Stelter implied that Trump’s impending presidency is a national emergency.
“I mean, here’s something I’ve been asking myself. Julia, we’re talking about a candidate who’s lost in a historic way in terms of the popular vote but clearly won in the Electoral College. Is this something of a national emergency? And are journalists afraid to say so because they’re going to sound partisan?” Stelter asked.
Stelter’s comment is so absurd for a figure masquerading as an impartial journalist that a casual observer could be forgiven for thinking he was attempting to troll the audience. Either Stelter believes that the Electoral College’s working in the precise manner in which it was designed is a national emergency, or he believes that the fact Trump was able to win despite the nonstop barrage of mainstream media propaganda is a national emergency.
