조 쉘: Democratic and media messaging indistinguishable on defeated voting bill

Unhinged hyperbole is killing the Democrats’ 메시지.

The blue team attempted to overhaul the way Americans vote this week, courtesy of something called the For the People Act. 그러나, thanks to the filibuster that Democrats couldn’t blow up, they came up 10 votes short of advancing the bill in a 50-50 상원. Whoops!

바로, most of the national media and the blue team became almost indistinguishable from each other in their message. President Biden said thatdemocracy is in peril.

CNN’s Jeffery Toobin, clearly not seeing the bill’s defeat as a happy ending, said the same thing, saying the bill was actually a life or death” 발행물 for our democracy. 알 잖아, just for effect.

Speaking of CNN “닻” Chris Cuomo—we use that term loosely—somehow experienced road rage on national television.

“그래서, how about now? How about now, 민주당? Are you ready to play to win, 지금? Have you had enough?” Cuomo 화요일 말했다 during his show.

예, that’s facts first from CNN.

The gaslighting was profound as Republicans sent the bill to its defeat.

예를 들어, ABC News reported that the GOP blocked the bill from passing. 그러나, then Rep. 알렉산드리아 오 카시오 코르테즈, D-N.Y., attempted to turn the narrative into Republicans blocking voting rights for millions of people.

Millions of people can’t vote as a result of this bill not passing? 에 2020, more people voted in this country than any other presidential election in more than a century.

It doesn’t sound like anyone is having any issue casting their ballots if you believe, 알 잖아, the numbers.

But no matter: Democrats and their allies in the media will continue to talk about the end of democracy being near while regular Americans at home are rolling their eyes.

You want to know why ratings are down 거의 75 percent at CNN from the beginning of the year and why the New York Timesstock is tumbling?

Look at the whine with that cheesyreportingas Exhibit A.
