“Journalism,” a play in three acts. . .
ACT 1: President Trump tweets about ratings, implying that “Fox & Friends” has him to thank for their success.
Very poor morning TV ratings for MSDNC’s Morning Joe, headed by a complete Psycho named Joe Scarborough and his ditzy airhead wife, Mika, and also @CNN, headed by complete unknowns. Congratulations to @foxandfriends on dominating the mornings (thank you President Trump!).

ACT 2: Mediaite writes it up, calling it a “self-thanking tweet.”

ACT 3: CNN’s John Berman makes a masturbation joke in response.
You gotta be careful of too much self-thanking.
