‘Journalist’ Writes Letter Patting Colleagues on Back, and It Backfires Big Time

If I had a dime for every time I’d seen a journalist on social media, television or elsewhere talk about how stunning and brave it was to be a reporter under a Republican administration – especially the Trump administration, I could retire, hire some cabana boys to do my bidding, and buy a private island in the Pacific where I would plot a takeover of America first, and then the world.

So imagine my non-surprise to log on to the Twitter machine and and find the “open letter” from Lousiville, KY’s WHAS 11 news director Julie Wolfe praising her fellow journalists for making it through the year and “doing a job some people hate you for doing.”

“Stay strong, because what you do matters,” she stated in the letter she tweeted out Tuesday. “2020 proved that”:

I wasn’t the only one who read the letter and rolled my eyes in contempt. Twitter user Fusilli Spock went off when he saw it and posted this must-read thread in response, which I wanted to share here (my own comments will be posted below his):

There was plenty more where that came from, too.

Fusilli Spock’s last tweet was especially on point. Considering how the MSM pushed fake news story after fake news story this year about President Trump and other Republicans, effectively became front men and women for the Biden campaign by suppressing much of the news that made him look bad (the Tara Reade allegations and Hunter Biden story comes to mind), and deliberately undermined Trump’s touting of the vaccine in the run-up to the election, I don’t seen where much congratulating and backpatting are in order.

If anything, what 2020 showed us about the media is that they’ve gotten worse in their partisan behavior, with recent examples demonstrating that state-run TV will be alive and well in 2021 under a Biden-Harris administration.

This is not a time for media figures to be high-fiving each other. It’s a time for them to be reflecting on what went wrong and how they can do better. Most won’t, however, because as history has shown us these people simply never learn from their mistakes – probably because they don’t view them as such.
