We’ve already done a post on CNN’s Brian Stelter crying over something mean Donald Trump Jr. said about liberals, but here he is again, warming up for the election results and sharing the messaging that’s going on on Slack, which is the platform journalists use to coordinate their talking points each day.
We suppose it’s very nice that they’re all being so supportive of each other while they do their jobs.
In Slack, motivational messages are bouncing back and forth: "Here we go." "Good luck everyone." "Don't forget to eat." "Stay hydrated." And, more ominously, "stay safe."
There's nothing left to say except: Let's count the votes…

Elections aren't about journalists.

"Journalists"… really, Brian. Good grief.

Forgive me if I'm not focusing on journalists right now. The press has failed us the last four years.

They see themselves as the heroes of this story and feel entitled to support, encouragement and adulation

Stay hydrated? They act like they are soldiers on the front lines.
Journalists have such a high opinion of themselves. No one else does.

Our country’s fatal flaw is that we’re forced to receive the news solely from narcissistic creative writing majors

Maybe you shouldn't cover an election for 2 years straight?? ?♂️

All the hype and fear that CNN produced over the last 4 yrs? Give us a break, we don’t feel sorry for you.

What about you @brianstelter? How are political activists pretending to be journalists doing tonight?

We’re ready for the screen captures of the faces of the CNN and MSNBC panels as the results become clear.
