Did you know the corporate media has a varsity team?
I sure didn’t.
Last night on Anderson Cooper, talking head Joe Johns let slip the existence of a media corps varsity team “of the likes you have just never seen.”
This highly trained journalistic strike-force was known for its dogged persistence and ability to get the job done.
They never take no for an answer. Instead, these superheroes will hound presidents, always asking the difficult questions, and are never satisfied with a none response.
Here is the startling revelation, straight from the transcript:
JOHNS: Sure. And nobody wants to jump out there and start slamming him immediately. But I’ve got tell you, at the end of the day, this is a varsity media corps of the likes you have just never seen.
And people are going to hammer away at a question and an individual like Barack Obama doesn’t want to ask. It’s just the nature of the beast. Wherever you go, you’re going to get that question after a certain point.
Wow…at every turn…hammering away at the hard questions…it’s just the nature of the beast. Booyeah, I tell you.
This, of course, got me thinking. Where has the awesome varsity media corps been hiding for the last eight years?
You know, when Bush lied us into the Iraq War, a shredded Constitution, an economic apocalypse, and a climate crisis turned into a daily worldwide catastrophe.
