I finished my column on coronavirus and the mainstream media today and submitted it to Real Clear Politics for use in my usual Monday slot.
But the editors decided it was timely enough that it should run right away, so it will appear sometime tomorrow at Real Clear Politics. As usual, I will also publish it here. [Updated with links.]
The title is “The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is the MSM Itself,” a reference to FDR’s famous warning. In the last few weeks, we have seen the mainstream media work overtime to undermine President Trump and to terrorize America.
I used Ari Melber as my example of media fearmongering, but it could just as well have been anyone in MSNBC or CNN.
Let me know what you think.
