Mainstream media has strutted its stuff for decades, the proverbial cocks of the walk when it comes to controlling news and information.
They’ve also enjoyed a cozy relationship with the White House, especially when a liberal sympathizer is seated there allowing them all access.
That’s not the way it’ll roll in the next administration.
President-elect Donald Trump knows he doesn’t have to cuddle with the media, and he gave them a beat-down Thursday as a reminder.
Trump slammed recent scandalous reporting by radical media outlets CNN and BuzzFeed. Both published slanderous fake news about Trump, and everyone knew it was complete fantasy.
The mainstream media was welcomed to the “other side” of news reporting by those who suffered under the contempt of a liberal world. Fox News trolled the leftist lackeys about getting accustomed to their new third-rate lifestyle. Breitbart highlighted the next generation of mainstream media:
Host Neil Cavuto provided a scathing commentary Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World” highlighting Trump’s verbal tussle with a CNN reporter. CNN’s reporter repeatedly interrupted Trump during a news conference Thursday and was border line abusive of the next president.
Trump wouldn’t answer a CNN question, and called the network “fake news.”
Cavuto commented that CNN should realize its journalists, hosts and pundits will endure what Fox suffered the past eight years under President Obama’s jabs and barbs.
“Take it from me, taking truth to power can be powerfully unsettling if that power sets its sights on you, and attacks you, and dismisses you, and ignores you,” Cavuto stated. “It didn’t matter so much when it wasn’t about you before, CNN. Very different now that it’s you being singled out, CNN.
“Doesn’t seem very fair now, does it? The shabby treatment of your reporters not very nice now is it? That’s life, I guess, not fair, not balanced. Now you’re experiencing what we have been living. Now you’re the ones royally foxed.
“And the irony is, I feel your pain. You never came to our defense so allow me to come to yours.”
Watch Cavuto here:
Cavuto did something unheard of among liberal journalists – try to work with those who oppose you.
“You are better than BuzzFeed,” Cavuto continued. “But the buzz is you’re getting fed to the wolves. Isn’t it obnoxious and unfair how some celebrate your plight? Kind of feels like the way you celebrated ours doesn’t it?
They say payback is a bitch. If only you take a moment to rewind the tape and see the shoe is on the other foot. Or am I confusing it with the one kicking you in the ass?
“You see it’s hard to tell from where I sit. Back then your silence was deafening. Very different now, isn’t it? And I suspect, just suspect, not much fun is it? Weird.”
Cavuto has displayed class, dignity and empathy for others throughout his career. Even when CNN and the rest of the alt-left mainstream media attacked him, Fox and conservative Americans everywhere, Cavuto was respectful.
Well, screw that.
Mainstream media can mire itself in the living hell it has created. May they gag on their kiddie modeling clay while sucking their snowflake thumbs in a safe room.
