Some tweets

| No Comments

Great thread at Twitchy (a Twitter aggregator) - I have cut and pasted the tweets into a continuous narrative (and added her to my follow list):

The media's histrionics are about 2 things:

1. They are terrified of the public seeing that private industry is far more effective and efficient than govt.

2. They are terrified that Trump will preside over the successful containment of the first real pandemic to hit the US.

They need private industry to fail because they need to show that only government can protect you.

They need this pandemic to be deadly and uncontained because otherwise Trump will be able to claim the win.

Everything to date has shown the massive inefficiencies of a large, centralized government.

CV has shown that bottom up leadership is most effective. It's proven Federalism right insomuch as when local leaders are competent, they're unequivocally best to react to emergencies.

And when they are not competent *cough* de Blasio *cough* Whitmer *cough* the leaders above them hold their incompetent little hands and help them do their duty.

In addition, this has highlighted regulatory hurdles that are unneccessary.
Government bureaucracy is built on regulations. And coronavirus is placing a glaring light on how much bureaucracy gets in the way of progress. Real progress.

So they're angry.
Angry that their worldview is being proven wrong.
Angry that they're no longer the gatekeepers.
Angry that we can fact check their lying asses in real time.
Angry that every belief they ever held dear is crumbling into a heap of regret and disillusionment.

Fact check? 100% correct on everything.

The media dinosaur knows that it's spinal column has been severed and that it is dying alone but it is in denial and still trying to call itself relevent in today's connected world.

They could have adapted and changed with the times but they did not. Too bad. So sad.
