TWAT News: Interrupting the President

Legacy media is a regular fountainhead of misinformation. So imagine my shock when they interrupt the President of the United States to accuse him of misinformation, and then proceed to fact-check the alleged misinformation.

The following video is an example of one media outlet, MSNBS MSNBC, doing just that:

This video was posted back on the 5th, but seeing as I’m one of the growing number of Americans that distrust corporate televised news media, I didn’t become aware of it until days later.

Ideally, when corporate media does its job, it fact-checks a speaker after he’s finished speaking, not before. However, MSNBC apparently decided to defenestrate this notion, joining it to the desiccated corpse of their journalistic integrity thrown about the landscape of their corporate offices.

That, coupled with the undisguised disdain from the host, indicates that there’s something about what President Trump said that got under their skin.

Considering that legacy media spent years stuck on a Russian collusion conspiracy theory which alleged that Russians tampered with the 2016 Presidential election, which turned out to be completely false and had no supporting evidence, it’s interesting that they have anything to say about what they consider misinformation coming from President Trump, and they didn’t even wait for him to finish speaking.

Corporate televised news misses the days when they held the monopoly on information. But then the internet happened, and people were no longer like hamsters going to the same feeder. Nowadays, televised news mainly preys on vulnerable adults.

If anything, the corporate news media should be cheering Trump for reelection. This is because much of their material for the past few years has been over him, and if Trump is no longer in the White House, they’d have to start doing some real journalism. And no, that doesn’t mean commenting on what’s trending on Twitter. If anyone cared what was happening on Twitter, they’d check out Twitter.

Because legacy media thinks it’s cool to interrupt the President when he’s speaking, they shouldn’t have a problem with us interrupting them by listening to Joe Rogan or Tim Pool, instead.
