TV news anchors like Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer have a "this is fine" bias in favor of Donald Trump because they try to report the news with a straight face, when they should be totally hysterical because Trump is not "normal," according to liberal news outlet Vox.
Carlos Maza writes on Vox:
There’s a norm in American political journalism that requires journalists to generally be unfazed by the political disputes they cover — the job of a journalist is to remain neutral and unemotional in the face of America’s political screaming matches. That norm stems from a desire to have journalists remain objective, even during heated political disputes. And it’s produced a kind of detached, even-keeled form of news speak — think of the way Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, and Lester Holt deliver the news.
Take the recent Senate health care vote, for example. Senate Republicans voted to consider a wildly unpopular health care bill without knowing what was in it, tried to pass it in the dead of night without holding any committee hearings about the bill, and made House Speaker Paul Ryan promise not to pass the Senate’s version, knowing it would be a disaster if it became law. That represents a major upending of the democratic process, but news anchors on TV treated it like just another typical heath care vote, rattling off vote counts and gawking at the “drama” on Capitol Hill.What you're looking at here is an expert on "normalcy":
Liberals are experts on normalcy.
For example, this is not normal:
This on the other hand, is normal:
We can't let bigots like Donald Trump convince people the family above is normal. We can't let bigots like Trump convince people the working class having a voice in the country their ancestors built is normal.
What's normal is an all gay, all transgender military. Normal is the top video on YouTube, with over 15 million views, encouraging children to be homosexuals and being showered in praise from the media.
That's what's normal (though you're still totally an anti-establishment, progressive warrior if you push all those things).
