You know, we might be willing to take Real Journalists™ a little more seriously if they dedicated nearly as much time to journalism as they did to whining.

CNN’s chief natsec correspondent Jim Sciutto seems pretty put-out at Trump bypassing him in favor of Fox News and the Daily Caller today:

Fellow CNN hack Brian Stelter isn’t happy, either:

Awwww.

Of course they’re mad. But if CNN’s looking for someone to blame for Trump ignoring them, they should look in the mirror. Journalism has taken a distant backseat to bashing Trump at every turn. Trump is not above scrutiny, but any legitimate beefs CNN might have with Trump have become drowned out by their constantly crying wolf.

Exactly. Reporters from CNN — or from any outlet — acting like entitled children aren’t going to get much sympathy from the viewing public.

Racist or not, CNN pitching a fit every time Trump or Sarah Sanders or anyone in his administration doesn’t call on them isn’t doing them any favors; it just makes them seem even more out-of-touch and unlikable.

Hopefully Jim Acosta, Jim Sciutto, and Brian Stelter can cry it out over appletinis later.
