A moment of ironic revelation? You decide.
Something remotely interesting happened last night on CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Stars must have been allighned in just the right way.
Anderson had Dana Loesh and posed this question to her:
That was a great setup for Dana to put her foot in the door and push it open.
She did a good job telling him how people don’t share media’s obsession with the Russia story. Dana said they don’t care about it the way the media cares. People care about other things, she said: the jobs agenda, taxes, healthcare. “Show me something actionable…show me some evidence!” They want to know, where are the other stories?
Of course he tried to challenge that but the important thing is he asked the question. Do you think they suddenly decided to entertain the question do Americans care? They didn’t care this far. They thrust it on us as if there were no other news to cover.
Now they wonder if Americans care? Something must have happened in their poll machine interpreter in the backroom. CNN has gotten a lot of push back from the Trump people about other news and other stories about Trump. But they pooh-poohed those complaints. Now, suddenly they pose the question and have a discussion about it.
Turns out that CNN has a a poll and only 27% are very concerned about Russia story.
And 33% are not at all concerned. (between is mixed) Yep, they’ve been polling.
My brief reply to their question is to ask a few questions: (since they asked)
1) Tell us why it is supposed to be so important? Media haven’t made the case yet. Then where is the substance or evidence? What collaboration?
2) Then why it is more important than everything else that I care about? Why is Russia more important than election results? In 8 months they haven’t told us.
3) People are practical and rational. They just want to know why the Russia story is so 5-alarm important? They don’t see it. Is it too much to explain why this is important enough to jeopardize a brand new presidency? Why does Russia trump that?
Funny it was not that long ago, just last year in fact, that Dems said they didn’t care about the 30 thousand emails. They told us people don’t care about that. Even the Media repeatedly told us, at the time, that people care about issues that effect them. Much of the time mainstream media refused to talk about it claiming “there are so many other news stories to cover.” “We only have so much time,” they said.
But stop the presses and news cycle now because no other stories matter or deserve coverage that interrupts their Trumpathon bash about Russia. 24/7 They even claim to know what is important and to hell with what people think, we decide what to cover.
Now vs. then is night and day. People just want a good reason to care about Russia.
