Dirty laundry

Fool me once. Shame on you. Fool me twice… For shame! That is what MILLIONS are saying about the disgusting interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” which I did not watch. Apparently, I was in good company.

“Colossal mistake!” NBC is facing serious backlash for the airing of this shameful, pathetic Trump interview. People are fuming. And they have good reason to do so. This interview was used to introduce Chuck Todd’s replacement, Kristen Welker. She didn’t get off to a good start.

Trump lied. He interrupted. He spoke over Welker. As for Welker herself, she was about as effective as Mike Pence’s fly at giving any push-back.

“What were they thinking?” Welker referred to Trump as “fired up” and “defiant.”

“Disgusting.”

Many people are swarming to NBC’s Twitter page, threatening to stop watching. Many HAVE stopped watching. What WERE they thinking? Have they learned NOTHING? Perhaps some of these people WANT Trump to win — after all, it might mean more viewers for them.

“This is worse than Chris Licht.” The appeal of Meet the Press for so many years is that whoever its host was — and they’ve had many — people were not allowed to get away with anything. That is why so many tuned in.

“Welker let trump push propaganda.” Although I did not watch it, friends and readers, I researched it afterward. And I have to tell you, trump(name not in caps on purpose) said NOTHING remotely true, so I will not be quoting him. Not here.

“An insult to viewers.”

One would think — or certainly hope — that after January 6, many media pundits would have learned their lesson. It appears not.

For these pundits it’s about , and I quote Don Henley:

“Make their livin’ off the evenin’ news.”

“People love it when you lose. They love dirty laundry.”

This is EXACTLY what Welker did — she gave the American people a bunch of foul-smelling, moldy, dirty laundry. Many saw the “gleam in her eye.” Ratings and money run these human propaganda machines — not honor, not morality, and certainly not truth.
