Today’s quote comes to us from CNN Senior Media Reporter Dylan Byers.
Speaking of how media address the public, Mr. Byers had this to say:
“On occasion, more than the media would probably like to admit, we have not told the story of conservative Americans, disenfranchised Americans, who believe that they are losing their country.
“The story we have largely been telling is a story that is more or less in step with the arc of history as defined by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”
“That doesn’t mean we favor them to win. It just means that that sort of vision of a progressive future — a global future — and that is not one that resonates with so many conservative American voters.”
Mr. Byers: you write for CNN, and think that on occasion you blow off conservatives? On occasion? Is “vast majority” synonymous with “on occasion”? If so, you have a point.
More or less in step with the Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama side of things? That suggests a lean rather than a landslide in one direction. You’ve got to be kidding.
But that, of course doesn’t mean you favor them to win. No, you do it out of love for conservatives and their point of view I’m sure.
I award Dylan Byers Quote Of The Day honors for presenting us with the best example of apparently well-intentioned myopia I have seen in I don’t know how long. Either that or a level of denseness that would put a double dose of asbestos to shame.
