Given that this is an election year, like most of you, I avoid the MSM if at all possible to avoid their gratuitous and vile propaganda in service of our messiah in chief.
I had a dream about what I would do if I were the next Republican President's chief of staff with regards to how the MSM should be treated in that administration:
1). Stop the stupid and unnecessary press "gaggle" every day.. Completely unnecessary and just an opportunity for the MSM to grandstand and showboat their liberal bias.
2). Avoid any sitdowns in the White House with Brian Williams, et al and the rest of the DC/NY liberal establishment.
When the Republican President wants to grant an interview, pick some unknown, earnest guy in Kansas or Oklahoma who might still be liberal, but not canine in his/her allegiance to the left that the typical MSM from NYC. Give them little notice, so some national guy in NY can't get to him.
3). Avoid and shut down this stupid Press Club dinners or White House Correspondent dinners...where the MSM has some comedian do some stupid liberal act like Wanda Sykes and "I hope he gets kidney failure" line. Why have it....?
4). Any time, any time at all that some liberal idiot asks some question that is laced with preconceptions on liberal fantasies (which is to say any question asked to a Republican), START BY SAYING "I DISAGREE WITH YOUR WHOLE CONCEPT OF THIS QUESTION" and then blast them for their lies and liberal tilt. This should start with the lowest staffer and end with the President.
5). Throw in frequently with ANY interaction with the media that they are biased and "would you ask this question or treat a Democrat this way". Say it with a laugh or as an aside, but never angry or by shouting. Remember, repetition is the best way to force this into the minds of the people, who are hopelessly still in love with people like Matt Lauer.
It just amazes me that Republicans, especially people like George W or Cheney either actually PREFERRED to sit down with the MSM or just play nice with them. I would not let the likes of Andrea Mitchell within 10 miles of the White House, and if your press secretary has to deal with them, inject the bias thing at every turn, not answering their biased questions, and the like.
It amazes me even more that the Republicans even allow NBC to broadcast their debates....but that is another issues for another time.
