Any true journalist should be proud to be denounced by a government not commended by them https://t.co/KQocQdqLVv— Saagar Enjeti (@esaagar) September 26, 2023
The 'Fourth Estate' is really beginning to look like an extension of any government they approve of.

If you want a list of propagandists, this is a great start. https://t.co/DMIzpOumPi— Oh My Gosh Josh 🌺 (@JoshOhMyGosh2) September 26, 2023
Not to, whatever, but this doesn't look amazing to a solid half of the country rn https://t.co/AlJTtnwlPv— Yali Elkin (@yalielkin) September 26, 2023
It pretty much affirms what half of thee country fears right now, actually.
Geee wonder why radical lunatic leftists are all in on funding Ukraines war even if it’s to our detriment. https://t.co/KjFDPhtmx8— Daniel Jenkins (@DanielJ52541) September 26, 2023
It’s like giving badges to the Girl Scouts that sell the most cookies. https://t.co/IpJSsJCKfq— CTM🇺🇸🦅 (@ctm800) September 26, 2023
At least, America gets yummy cookies out of that deal. With the Ukraine deal, we get tons more debt and depleted munitions.

I remember a time when an 'honor' like this, presented by the head of state of a country who's war they were covering, would make a real journalist for sick to their stomach.— Aaron Baker (@ThePoiema) September 26, 2023
Remember when the media was about holding the powerful accountable? Now, they will dox your Aunt who votes Republican way before they will attack a politician.

That's gross and those outlets and "anchors" should have politely refused and pretended to have some ethics. 🧐🤷♂️🤡🤡🤡— Ridge (@ridgemogul) September 26, 2023
What a concept!
Does the commendation come with a cash award? Or is that part of the process handled with corp bonuses?— Chad Desrosiers (@Chad_Desrosiers) September 26, 2023
As much as this is tongue in cheek and we will never know the real answer, nothing should surprise Americans anymore.
