Why we don't care, Katy Tur

MSNBC anchor Katy Tur is angry at you.

"Last week was a tidal wave of bad news for this presidency and this president, and his approval rating stayed the same. So I wonder -- I mean, if that's not going to move the needle, is this John McCain thing going to move the needle?" Tur said during an on-air breakdown worthy of Martha Raddatz.

"And forgive me for being skeptical because I was under the impression, as was most people, that when Donald Trump came out and said he wasn't a war hero -- he likes the guys that don't get caught -- back in 2015, that people would care. And when I went out and I talked to Republican voters, they didn't care at all."

Gee, how dare people not react the way she predicted. How dare we reject the media's attempts to frame President Trump.

"Eighty-eight percent of Republicans still support him -- 88 percent. I'm sorry, I just -- I start to wonder when we have these conversations and we say, 'Well, this is going to be the breaking point,' I wonder if there is a breaking point. I wonder if enough people in this country find the actions and the behavior repulsive enough to want to change what's going on," Tur said.

There is no breaking point. None. The media cannot break the bond between the man and his supporters.

In the old days, they could. Republicans have a long history of sacrificing candidates at the altar of appeasement over one of these media-driven fake scandals.

Then came Obama. His political mentor was an unrepentant terrorist. His religious mentor -- the man he dedicated his book "The Audacity of Hope" to -- said America deserved 9/11.

Most of the media didn't care.

Why should we care if President Trump said something the media doesn't like?

Besides, look at the steady stream of pseudo-scandals as Tur and the rest have ginned up over the years.

For example, the big scandal a month before the election was he said something 11 years before he ran for president to Billy Bush about if you are rich, handsome, and famous, women in Hollywood will let you get away with anything.

One year after that pseudo-scandal, the real scandal broke about Harvey Weinstein. The only thing President Trump got wrong is that you have to be handsome.

The media has fouled itself out; it is the boy who cried wolf.

While the media pitched Fake News about Russia, the economy caught fire, North Korea gave up its nukes, and the War on Terrorism seems over.

The media abused its power -- and lost that power.

Back in my days of newspapering, we used to say the easiest thing in the world to do is stop reading. Now I would say flipping channels is.

The Kardashians draw more eyeballs than CNN because Americans have better taste than the news media gives them credit.

    1. I was thinking the same thing but figured out she must be one of those high maintenance whineybutts on CNN or MSNBC. You know, a woman who doesn't think any more or better than people like Don Lemon or Jim Acosta. What this Tur b**tch is complaining about is laughable. Trump supporters can see through and think through anything he says but dumocrats will let their heroes lie to them and know it and still lay down.

    2. She's the entertainment reporter who got assigned to Trump because the network thought he would be a flash in the pan and was only running to boost ratings for his TV show. They ended up leaving her incharge of covering him because they continued to not take him seriously after he won the nomination. All in one of Don's books. I forget which one. Read them all.

    3. Actually that is a pretty good description of her. She really believes that she is intelligent and wise even though most people thin a box of rocks contain more brain power. She is also a devote far left liberal repeating the talking points given her by her liberal masters without independent though or care.

  5. We don't care because we don't care about Johnny Maverick McRINO. He was a loser who stabbed his running mate in the back. Even after his death. Sarah Palin who was always gracious towards him was not invited to his funeral. McRINO was classless to the very end. Why should we care about someone who consistently stabbed his party in the back?

    1. You pay the man too much respect. He did everything in his power to obliterate the 1st Amendment with McCain-Fiengold. He ran for eight years on abolishing ObamaCare, yet when he had the opportunity to cast the deciding vote, he refused. He nominated Sarah Palin, which was the only reason anyone was enthusiastic about his campaign, then spent the rest of his campaign muzzling and burying her. People claim he loved America. Maybe he did. He sure as he!! didn’t act like it though. Not unless subverting the Constitution demonstrates love.

  6. McCain is the 3rd most hated senator - only Flake and one other score lower - and has been for years.

    McCain started the whole Trump feud by labeling Trump supporters as crazy, just as he denigrated Tea Partiers and urged the IRS to bankrupt them.

    He banned Sarah Palin from attending his funeral - the only reason McCain got any votes at all.

    Glad McCain is gone. Let him explain himself to Satan.

    2. How stunning was it when McCain said he should have picked Liebermann over Palin? It would have been the most historic beating a presidential candidate would have ever taken.

      Plus, I think he said that just to be a bitch and do some image repair to make everyone think he really was their beloved maverick.

      Delete
    3. And Lieberman, who has a lot of redeeming qualities, would have seen his own reputation stained.

    Hell, most people think John McCain is The Rifleman's kid brother.

    Then came Obama. His political mentor was an unrepentant terrorist. His religious mentor -- the man he dedicated his book "The Audacity of Hope" to -- said America deserved 9/11.

    You forgot his life mentor, Communist homosexual Frank Marshall Davis.

  13. The media only likes mccain when he is pissing on Trump or the Republican party. He goes out pissing on Trump so this is a high point for the media. She obviously believes everyone thinks like her. But, mccain's actions in death re:Trump and Palin only reinforces the disdain honorable people have for him. mccain doesn't like Trump makes us like Trump more.

  14. Katy Tur is dumber than a stump and if you have not seen DJT demolish that stupid twerp in an interview during his prez campaign, check it out, it is hilarious. Classic DJT steamrollering of a media idiot, one of his best, maybe his best ever, believe me.

  15. Really, who do they think deserves most of the blame other than themselves? They trot out so much breathless, baseless bullshit that people have simply become numb to most of it, and after seeing them cover for everything for Obama we just don't care about the rest of it. And maybe they should be reminded about "It's about the economy, stupid." Who cares about some school yard beef between McCain and President Trump when Trump has the economy going gangbusters. Trump can do whatever he wants as far as I'm concerned; after Obama about weaponized every government agency to go against his fellow Americans, Trump can't do enough dirt or cause democrats enough heartache to suit me.

    As Dr Emmett Brown said about the DeLorean, when things gets up to 88, you’re gonna see some serious sh*t.

  19. I remember back when Obama received 90+% of the black vote. Solidly. Unbroken. Not racist at all according to the media.

    Now suddenly when 88% of a candidate's *total* supporters aren't breaking ranks with him it's a problem?

    FOAD lying liberal media

  25. I think it's a generational thing. Folks who are Tur's age have grown up with the personal being the political. To ask them to separate the man's goals and policies from his personal life is one too many for them. Bulverism is it all day now. I hope some in her generation are tied to more long-standing traditions of critical thought. Reformed progressives like Dave Ruben give me hope.

  27. Actually Trump got it right. He didn't say you had to be handsome for women to let you go straight to third base, you just have to be "rich and famous," though the "let" part is somewhat ambiguous is the cases of Weinstein, Lauer and the rest of the "rape lock" brigade.

  31. It tells you all you need to know about the MSM that they have never applied this question to their own behavior and the 2016 election: "I wonder if there is a breaking point. I wonder if enough people in this country find the actions and the behavior repulsive enough to want to change what's going on," Tur said."

Grow up, you pussies. We finally have a President willing to do some street fighting to get a win, but I guess that offends your delicate sensibilities. Get out.

  33. This post is accurate, but incomplete. While some Trump supporters are true believers, many others support him as the lesser of two evils. They recognize all President Trump's flaws, but find him less dangerous or offensive than his opposition. I maintain that this is why media propagandists like Ms. Tur can't grasp what is happening. To do so would be to admit that millions of people find Ms. Tur and her cohorts less worthwhile than Donald Trump. For people as self-righteous as Ms. Tur, this is ego and soul shattering. To accept it would require her to accept her own flaws, her lack of power and her career's lack of value. Misreading this situation is a virtual survival skill for Ms.Tur and those like her.

  34. This slide FROM the Republic has been going on since 1900 and academia is now 80+% Progressive (read socialist ) and it is now showing in the media ( print, audio and Hollyweird) The people WE elect to Protect and Defend the Constitution seem to have a problem with reading comprehension and taking an oath is just so much ceremony for the gullible at home to absorb. Little things like the head of the CIA taking his oath on the Quran instead of the Bible, but in todays America that is acceptable ???
