Every once in a while we come across a headline that reminds us why we spend so much time dragging traditional media. Sure, most days they give us plenty of ammo to make fun of them in story after story, but it can start to feel sort of like low hanging fruit.
Until you come across something like this from the New York Times.
The Media shouldn’t wonder why Americans despise them.
Politicians setup a bogus vigil for student survivors and victims of school shooting. It was really just a Democrat political rally for gun control. The students called them out and Media blames the students.#copolitics pic.twitter.com/2ouOvvpHt7

Students didn’t appreciate Democrats and gun-grabbers (same damn thing) using the death of their fellow student to play politics, so they walked out. They didn’t ‘disrupt’ any vigil, the a-holes exploiting a dead student were disrupting the vigil.
And this is how the NYT covers it?
Eff them sideways.
And @nytimes are scum.

normal people could not imagine the way that the left twists events and connives for opportunities to advance their agenda. this week is a real lesson in that, and i'm sure there's even more to be revealed.

“The event is open to the press and coverage is invited.”

It was never about mourning the lost student and it was always about playing politics.
We’re not sure who’s more disgusting here, the gun-grabbers who tried to use a vigil to push gun-control or the a-hole media trying to run cover for them by pretending the students were at fault.
You know what? Both suck.
#Presstitutes gonna press.
No wonder the mass media is pretty much universally despised.

They didn't even call them out or disrupt. They just walked out and had their own vigil elsewhere. @nytimes is pathetic.

Indeed they are.
