Skip to comments.The Media and 2020: Deja vu All Over Again
Posted on 07/09/2020 5:33:51 AM PDT by Kaslin
Some things never change for the mainstream media. After being blindsided by the results of the 2016 election, the New York Times and other media outlets professed that they would make a concerted effort to be more introspective.

The Dems and their propaganda media hate us too much to change...

We need to do something about the media. Our country will not survive if we don’t.
