Ladies & gentlemen, your fair and objective press corps in action! What a joke.— Brad Parscale (@parscale) December 19, 2019
Media needs to stop acting like they are “impartial”. https://t.co/F89tPhbRZT
I’m deleting a tweeting tonight that is being misinterpreted by some as an endorsement of some kind. To be absolutely clear, we at the Post are merely glad we are getting a break for the holidays after a long 3 months. I will retweet the group photo w/ a better caption !— Rachael Bade (@rachaelmbade) December 19, 2019
And on cue some reporters will circle the wagons & defend their colleagues at all costs. Calling out reporters for inappropriate behavior is labeled (by the media) an attack on the free press. Reporters claim they “hold the powerful accountable”. But who holds them accountable? https://t.co/UhAvHVNNOI— Stephanie Grisham (@PressSec) December 19, 2019
