He really said that … While this email usually looks at the news media, film and television are also part of the media, so from time to time I’ll mention a jaw-dropping celebrity action. Today it’s Johnny Depp. The NY Post reported that whilst on stage in the United Kingdom, “Depp asked the crowd how long it has been since ‘an actor assassinated a president.’” Depp later added, “Maybe it’s time.”
MSNBC guest joins in … Not content with merely calling Trump’s kids Uday and Qusay Hussein, a guest on MSNBC went all in and equated Donald Trump with a “suicide bomber.” No, really, Elise Jordan did. Mediaite has the story. The comparison seemed a “little strong” to the MSNBC host.
CNN’s Acosta said what? … CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta whined about the president not holding press briefings. As his defense, he made up a right that exists nowhere in the Constitution. Acosta tweeted, “I’m off today but it must be said that YOUR White House is taking away YOUR right to see and hear YOUR government answer questions today.” Um, no, Jim, there is no such right.
Speaking of the press briefings … CRTV White House correspondent Jon Miller had a great take on the pride of the White House press corps. Watch here.

Bravo, Jake Tapper … It isn’t just about knocking down the media and celebrities here at WTF MSM!? When the media say something smart, they should be applauded – however rarely that is. Yesterday, CNN’s Jake Tapper responded to a Trump tweet by saying, “Some of you are going to dislike hearing this but the DNC’s inadequate response to FBI/DHS on [Russian flag emoji] hack is a legit question.” Tapper is absolutely correct; the DNC refused the FBI’s help, and that is a story.
Samantha Bee’s Catholic smear … Samantha Bee, on her eponymous TBS show, smeared the Catholic Church on Wednesday night. It was pretty vile and repeated many of the tired tropes against the Church and Church leadership. About the only slur she didn’t use was calling it the “whore of Babylon.” NewsBusters has the story.
I can’t fight back alone against the mainstream media. I need your help. There are two ways you can help. First, send your friends – and even your enemies – over to CRTV.com/WTFMSM and have them sign up to get this email. Second, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with anything you see the media do. Together, we can fight back.
