So Where's Nick On The Chick With A Dick?

Thinking about those last two posts, the thing that really grates about listening to MSM hacks like Nick Robinson babbling about their vitally vital role in holding the people in power to account is that they clearly don't mean it anyway.

Sure, when it comes to wedge issues on the right, they claim it's their sacred duty to speak Truth To Power, but when it's a toughey for the left? Then they're desperate to cover the issue - with a pillow until it stops moving.

Hey, leaving aside Brexit, the one thing that people with real jobs are most steamed up about is garbage like this. So when is Captain Scrutiny going to ask oooh Jeremy Corbyn about this? Or Jo Swinson? Or anyone on the left?

The MSM is super obsessed with, say, Ann Widdicombe's personal views on gays, or what Jacob Rees-Mogg thinks about abortion, even to the point of asking them to answer absurd hypotheticals, but when it comes to actual party leaders and stuff that's happening right now?

Nope, no scrutiny required at all, you guys.

Hey, how about the MSM start hiring people who identify as journalists?
