Today’s read is from Mollie Ziegler Hemingway, a senior editor at The Federalist. She is a Senior Journalism Fellow at Hillsdale College. Here’s an excerpt:
The media reacted not with the praise and excitement that greeted President Obama’s announcement of a similar successful operation against Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, but with anger and rage. Many media outlets soiled their beds…It takes effort to try to spin the unalloyed good news of the Trump administration’s success as a net negative, but corporate media were up for the challenge. That’s because successes such as this one undercut the narratives they’re trying to force into the national conversation.
Why is the media freaking? Hemingway lays out the reasons in her column here.
