20. Brian Stelter on CNN's "Reliable Sources" is doing the same thing.

It's about time we start seeing this! He wouldn't let some Trump excuse-making mouthpiece get away with some of his statements, too. It's been a long time in coming. I wish journalists had had the guts to do this during bush/cheney. They didn't. They gave those bastards a free pass, a free ride, and as they say in the Monopoly game, "Free Parking", and a free trip past "Go" PLUS a free 200 dollars. NEVER questioned. Those who tried were fired, demoted, shut out. So they all learned their lesson, alright. DISGUSTING. COWARDS ALL.

I guess we ought to be grateful this is now happening, in real time. Rather than long after the fact, like the New York Times finally did, printing a somewhat limited acknowledgement that they dropped the ball, and allowed themselves to be used. No, not used. PLAYED. LIKE FUCKING VIOLINS. They were manipulated up one side of the room and down the other, and NEVER questioned, NEVER tried to drill down, NEVER. NOT ONCE. Until way after the fact. When it does no good at all. And it could have done PLENTY of good if they'd done it in real time.
