As Twitchy reported, New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen announced in a tweet that he was giving up NPR after 25 years as a loyal listener. The triggering event? Someone said on air, “There are a lot of people in the United States who don’t see Donald Trump is a habitual liar and who are big fans of his.” Judging by the popularity of his rallies, we’d say that’s true, a lot of people are big fans of Trump.

That might have been the last straw from Rosen, but he had evidence of NPR’s decay; just look at how Mara Liansson summed up the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016:

Yeah, and…?

Here’s Mo with the takedown:

Yep … to be honest, Watergate is exactly what every journalism student aspires to do: take down a Republican president or prevent one from being elected. That’s the gold ring.

He and the fact-checker who smeared a former Marine as a neo-Nazi and the feminist who claims the Republican party is “a terrorist organization” will all be teaching journalism at NYU. Great school.
