Why should Joy Reid have a monopoly on delusional takes on the media? Peter Daou’s giving her a real run for her money.
In response to a Media Matters complaint about the Women’s March not getting enough media coverage:
Sunday shows barely mentioned the 2018 Women’s March https://t.co/4nQ1HFfrcG

Daou made this bold statement:
Selective coverage is a nefarious means to manipulate public opinion. Omission can be as bad as commission. We get endless mainstream media features on a certain group of voters (rural white males) while completely shunning another (Clinton voters and women of the #resistance). https://t.co/u5rLc2eunU

Yes, folks. He’s serious.
The women’s marches have been the largest marches in the world but don’t get any media coverage. 🤦🏻♂️ #Resist

Right? I am so pissed about this! Our outrage is not being fully covered!

So, the nefarious mainstream media are too focused on the people in flyover country to show any love to Hillary Clinton voters and Women’s Marchers? Really?
The #WomansMarch2018 and #TheResistance is the most unappreciated political movement in American history. I suppose being for equal rights doesn’t grab as many ratings as the extreme xenophobic “policies” of the right.

It's the ever moving rightward media. No loud, radical left wingers to counter the plethora of loud, ultra rightwing conservatives on all mainstream media.
Media like NBC, ABC represent large, corporate, conservative monied interests not the center-left of majority of Americans.

What color is the sky in their world?
CNN had split screen most of the day and reporters at the marches.

But the MSM hates liberals.
