Tweet of the Day
This tweet yesterday, the bottom one, really hit home for me. The disconnect I feel listening to news coverage on NPR, say. It's like they‘re describing a monster rampaging through the city with the same tone in which they report a city council meeting. Then they quote an official who blames the taxicab driver for getting eaten by the monster: “The monster is the true victim here.” Then they bring in someone who disparages both sides for not being able to find common ground.
I’m constantly mad at media coverage in the Trump era because I desperately want a neutral observer to confirm that I'm not losing my mind. Nothing is more disorienting than watching the world burn while Wolf Blitzer calmly recites the day's headlines.— Carlos Maza (@gaywonk) October 24, 2018
