Fox’s Howard Kurtz compares GSA stonewalling of Biden to Whoopi Goldberg being mean

first_imgBecause once you’ve compared a government-wide ban prohibiting members of the next administration’s transition team from so much as entering federal buildings to a television talk show host making riffs, you have both sides yourself, orbital cannon version, into the Earth’s asthenosphere.We are likely to get quite a bit of this, in coming weeks. Yes, fascist legislators in several states are contemplating how to strip their citizens of their votes and instead allocate their own electors to Dear Leader—but Randy Rainbow released a new song that made people who have Trump flags permanently mounted to their cargoless pickup trucks sad. It is upsetting that the United States president, a deluded malignant narcissist whose incompetence has killed a quarter million, is obsessively broadcasting conspiracy theories in an attempt to undermine a democratic election that upset him, but a political cartoonist has colored Trump in with far too orange a hue—so who is the real monster here, when all is said and done?To political journalists as a whole, both sides is an addiction more powerful than crack. Combine it with a Fox News paycheck and several floors of the Fox building solely dedicated to finding new things non-conservatives have done that their audience should be outraged by, though, and it begins to look something like this.- Advertisement – It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Good times, good times.Kurtz defended his tweet to the many, many mockers, sniffily telling them to read his Fox News article rather than, um, the “both sides” comparison he himself chose to highlight, but ’twas all for naught.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more
