THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT, WE’D SEE THIRD-WORLD STYLES OF MEDIA TREATMENT. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! CNN’s April Ryan after bodyguard ejects local journalist: ‘When I speak, I don’t have news covering my speech.’

Plus: Wait, I’m one of you! “Kratovil expressed his solidarity with Ryan, an outspoken critic of President Trump and his treatment of the press, but told Fox News that ‘her reputation’ now depends on addressing what had happened and is hoping for an apology.”

Her reputation is as a Democratic Party operative with a chyron, and thugs on hand. She’s never been anything else. And the combination of thuggishness, entitlement, and cluelessness is absolutely typical of the breed. See also Chris “Fredo” Cuomo. I mean, I know CNN’s ratings have tanked, but surely they could hire people who know how to behave in public if they wanted to. But maybe they don’t want to.
