Clowns. The whole lot of ’em.
The mainstream media has diverted ever further from the journalists’ path in recent years, turning instead to sensationalism and exaggeration in order to keep viewers tuned in through the commercial breaks. And, not only that, but several of the pundits that we have pounding our ears and eyes with hyperbole have ceased pretending that they themselves aren’t characters in some elaborate entertainment operation.
Take CNN’s Chris Cuomo, for example, who this week made a bizarre and embarrassing post on social media.
The scandal-plagued Cuomo spent a large part of the morning responding to feedback when an unverified account with only 12 followers made a comment that the “Cuomo Prime Time” host would break his arm pleasuring himself. Cuomo responded with an image of his flexed bicep bulging out of a CNN T-shirt.
“That how this happened?! Hahahaha. Come on, baby, dont hate – facilitate. You can do better than this petty bs,” Cuomo wrote.
Those who witnessed the odd post found it off-putting.
“This is the weirdest response I’ve seen in awhile,” journalist Beth Baumann wrote, while political operative Arthur Schwartz simply wrote, “Clown.”
“One of the few good things Twitter has done for society is showing people who the ‘journalists’ delivering their news really are,” Bongino Report responded.
“It’s too early on a Monday for this, Chris,” the Daily Caller wrote.
“It’s from stroking your own ‘ego,’” NewsBusters analyst Nicholas Fondacaro added.
The post remains accessible on Monday afternoon.
