You might not accept the premise, you may think the arguments are a bit OTT. Not in MSM journos minds though.
In my first month of blogging, I did a few potted biographies, most were happy enough to cooperate, this one wasn’t:
Once he knew I was on social media, a blogger in fact, I was persona non grata and some of his writing was on the topic of bloggers. So it’s not a new thing, and there was a feeling at the time that we were muscling in but it was more.
It seemed to be like this as well:
The gatekeepers want their power back, so it’s no surprise they present conservative social media influencers as racists and misogynists. What is shocking, however, is how brazenly they cast ordinary Americans as vicious and stupid. To these journalists, Trump voters are either morally or rationally defective—probably both. “If the Trump era has taught us anything,” Noah Berlatsky wrote on Friday for NBC, “it’s that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth.” Berlatsky finds it “reasonable to conclude that voters were willing to swallow the falsehoods because they liked what they heard: overt racist appeals.”
I’m not sure that it’s hyperbole to say they ‘hate’ us because it’s their livelihood and we don’t abide by MSM club rules – to slavishly follow narrative etc.
It will be interesting to see how all this pans out.
