Mainstream Media ‘Still a Smug Little Cartel’. Elites of White House press corps steadily drift into identity crisis in Trump era

The predominantly liberal media are not adjusting well to the Trump era. Now it appears they are suffering an existential crisis, accompanied by jealousy, mood swings, and a lack of self-esteem. On Monday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer was asked by reporter Ronica Cleary, for Fox 5 D.C., if he thought the press was nice. Spicer said it’s not his job to judge the media. The odd question, asked by a local news reporter, seemed to almost mock the assembled front-row elites — those suffering an escalating crisis of identity.

President Donald Trump’s White House has steadily ratcheted up the discomfort for many members of the Old Guard media. Spicer has allowed questions at press briefings from conservative outlets shunned by the Obama administration. The White House even allowed some bloggers to attend the briefings. Spicer began taking questions from local media, via Skype. And in the last five days, the slow burn caught up with the fuse.

On Monday, the New Yorker uncorked a long story on Trump and Spicer’s relationship with the White House press corps. The New Yorker reporter, Andrew Marantz, who had been working his angle of new conservative faces at the briefings for weeks, turned a sympathetic ear to the prima donnas of the briefing room. Marantz suggested Trump is “trolling the media” by letting in new conservative faces. To his credit, Marantz yanked some truly snobby quotes from the White House press corps. It’s as if Rodney Dangerfield has shown up at Bushwood Country Club again, and Judge Smails is not amused.

 

 

Marantz even got one veteran reporter to admit some of the front-row reporters are a “smug little cartel.” And if you ever doubt the elite media are an entitled group of folks, those doubts vanish after reading Marantz’s piece in the March 20 edition. Marantz notes most of the correspondents at right-of-center outlets — the ones without assigned seats at the briefing room — are under 30. (LifeZette’s White House correspondent is 50.) Marantz lets the anonymous (and perhaps older) White House correspondents lather on the calumny.

“At best, they don’t know what they’re doing,” a radio correspondent told Marantz. “At worst, you wonder whether someone is actually feeding them softball questions.”

Marantz notes the New York Post got the first question at Spicer’s second briefing. And that LifeZette got the first question at Spicer’s third. These things still fascinate the media. It shows the pecking order has been disrupted. But a few things have so far not been disrupted. The elite media still feel entitled, that much is clear. They are still predominantly liberally biased — that is obvious, too. And they still have a herd mentality that has not helped the health of the U.S. media. 

The carping at the White House will likely not drown out new voices. Just as liberal outlets The Huffington Post and Buzzfeed grew to great heights under President Obama, it’s likely the new conservative media will find its groove with a Republican in the White House.

BOOM: Clint Eastwood Has PERFECT Response to Hollywood Libs Calling Trump Racist

nat-chair-day-logoFamed Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood has long been known to hold a different opinion than most of his peers, leaning more towards a libertarianish conservatism than the typical elitist liberalism. Not much has changed for Eastwood over the years, as the 86-year-old still stands apart from most of the other actors and directors he works with making movies.

Eastwood sat down not too long ago for a wide-ranging interview with Esquire magazine that touched on the topic of empty-suit-empty-chairpolitics a bit, and he held nothing back in delivering a blunt assessment of young Americans and the media, as well as the two presidential nominees, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Asked what he thought about people sort of adopting his classic film persona of being a tough guy that takes no guff from anyone, such as Trump, Eastwood replied, “But he’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now.”

“We’re really in a p**** generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells,” he continued. “We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”

Pressed for more about Trump, Eastwood explained: “What Trump is onto is he’s just saying what’s on his mind. And sometimes it’s not so good. And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”

He made clear that he was not offering up an endorsement of Trump but nevertheless had a message for those who routinely accuse Trump of being a racist.

“He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides,” he stated. “But everybody — the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just f***ing get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”

Eastwood proceeded to reminisce about his famed “empty chair” address at the 2012 Republican National how-was-paris-empty-chairConvention and spoke about how he’d like to see everybody work harder and be more understanding of others’ differences instead of simply calling names or being intolerant.

Asked his opinion of Clinton, he replied, “What about her? I mean, it’s a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one. If she’s just gonna follow what we’ve been doing, then I wouldn’t be for her.”

The interviewer pressed Eastwood to make a decision between Clinton and Trump.

Eastwood responded, “That’s a tough one, isn’t it? I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps.”

“There’s been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She’s made a lot of dough out of being a politician,” he added. “I gave up dough to be a politician. I’m sure that Ronald Reagan gave up dough to be a politician.”

Though Clint Eastwood’s answers to the interviewer’s questions were far from an endorsement of Trump, it is pretty clear that he was leaning toward the GOP candidate in this election, for many of the same reasons many other Americans are.stupid

Former Chief Psychiatrist at Johns Hopkins Has Bad News for Caitlyn Jenner

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief for Johns PC TransHopkins Hospital, has an opinion about former Olympic athlete Bruce Jenner’s recent announcement that is sure to upset the many crusading for the transgender movement. McHugh not only believes that changing sexes is biologically impossible, he also believes those identifying themselves as transgender actually have a mental disorder.

McHugh, author of six books and over 125 peer-reviewed medical journal articles, wrote in a Wall Street Journal piece that surgery is not a solution for those wishing to live as the opposite sex.

McHugh wrote that these people believing they can choose their sex suffer from a “disorder of assumption.”

In the piece, he also quoted a study claiming that transgendered people undergoing reassignment surgery are 20 times more likely to commit suicide than non-transgendered people. (H/T BizPac Review)

McHugh also said that while Hollywood and the mainstream media promote transgenderism as normal, they are doing no favors to these people by treating their “confusions” as a right rather than treating them as a mental disorder that deserves treatment and prevention.definetly

The doctor considers the transgendered person’s “assumption” that they are “different than the physical reality of their body “a disorder similar to someone suffering anorexia nervosa.

McHugh claims that pro-transgender advocates do not want to accept the fact that studies indicate between 70 and 80 percent of children who express transgender feelings lose such feelings over time.

Changing sexes is impossible, according to the doctor and all transgendered people do is “become feminized men or masculinized women.”Transgender

In addition, those who had sexual reassignment surgery and felt satisfied with the results of that surgery fared no better in their psycho-social adjustments than those who didn’t have surgery.

Because of these studies, Hopkins stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery, the doctor said.

While certain people will disagree with Dr. McHugh’s statements, more will probably agree. But the liberal media will likely try to smother those who find such transitions troubling and embrace actions that add to the moral decay of our country.

Obama Honors Islam Before Dead Marines Killed by Islamic Terrorist; Americans Furious

muslim-obamaPresident Obama issued a statement yesterday urging Americans to respect the religion of Islam before he even commented on a terror attack by an Islamic extremist in Chattanooga which killed four Marines, prompting widespread anger.

The White House tweeted out a statement wishing Muslims “Eid Mubarak!” as Ramadan came to a close, adding that, “the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs.”

It was only after Obama had lectured Americans about respecting Islam that he paid tribute to the four dead Marines killed by an Islamic terrorist.against America

Reaction to the timing was brutal.

t02 t03 t04

Obama has been widely criticized for his refusal to even use the term “Islamic” when referring to Islamist terror attacks, an illustration of the stifling political correctness that surrounds discussion of Islamic-inspired atrocities.

In the aftermath of the shootings, the leftist media, which immediately exploited the Charleston attack to collectively demonize all white Americans, is noticeably shy to discuss Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s motivation.

Salon.com, which said that “white America must answer for the Charleston massacre,” has as its top story this morning a piece about drafting Al Gore. There are no mentions of Chattanooga until you scroll well down the page.What did you say 05.jpg

Donald Trump also took Obama to task during a Fox News appearance last night, slamming his fear of using the term “Islamic terrorism.”

Liz Cheney Flips Media’s Script on Iraq War

Knowing what we know now . . .

There has been a lot of hand-wringing over Jeb Bush’s seeming lack of readiness for a presidential campaign in the wake of his apparent inability to articulate a coherent response to Megyn Kelly’s Iraq War hypothetical question.

After days of hedging and backpedaling, Jeb finally landed on the “right” answer: “no, knowing what we know now, I would not have invaded Iraq.”  It shouldn’t have taken that long or that many tries because, as Charles Krauthammer notes in Friday’s Special Report panel, the question answers itself:

While Megyn Kelly did not ask a difficult or tricky question, it’s a question that pops up pretty consistently for GOP candidates from interviewers on both the left and the right, and it is usually the liberal media who manages to flummox GOP candidates.

Rand Paul provided a great template for turning this type of question back on Democrats when he flipped the script on abortion.

And now, Liz Cheney provides the perfect way to make this question about the Iraq War relevant:

liz

This is exactly the kind of response we need from quick-witted and able Republican candidates.

Hopefully, Jeb will learn from this experience and be prepared to flip the script on the Iraq War question when it is asked again.  And it will be.OARLogo Picture6
