We’re not sure we care what Phil Berk has to say; apparently, he was formerly the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group behind the Golden Globes. We’re also not sure what angle the Los Angeles Times is going for with its tweet in which it breaks the news that Berk, in an email, called Black Lives Matter co-founder and real estate magnate Patrice Cullors a “self-described ‘trained Marxist'” — which isn’t new information.

“Self-proclaimed” is exactly right.

What’s weak is the Los Angeles Times trying to present the self-proclaimed trained Marxist claim as something newsworthy. We’re pretty certain the reporters haven’t looked into Black Lives Matter closely enough to know that’s absolutely true.
