    Reddit Fiasco: CNN's Cillizza Exits Bubble, Discovers Everybody Hates Chris (and CNN)

    Reddit Fiasco: CNN's Cillizza Exits Bubble, Discovers Everybody Hates Chris (and CNN)

    "Chris, do you believe in meritocracy? If so, why do you get paid so much? If not, why do you get paid so much?"

    CNN star Chris Cillizza poked his head out of the womb Tuesday — you know, the MSM womb where everyone is safe from the real world consequences of failure and lying, the womb where everyone fails upwards, where no matter how dishonest and dead-wrong you are you are always loved and perfect and precious? — and things went hilariously, gloriously, righteously awry. Cillizza discovered that out here in the real America, thanks to his shallow ethics, shoddy work, and high opinion of his own adorableness, he is nothing less than a universal laughingstock.

    To recap, this is the Chris Cillizza who demanded we all stop talking about the "fable" surrounding Hillary's ill-health — just hours before she collapsed at a public event. This is the Cillizza who devoted an entire column (and I'm assuming a number of CNN segments) to second-by-second analysis of the Trump-Macron handshake. This is the Cillizza who is certain no fake news exists, who blames Trump for the media's credibility problems (cuz Trump is behind all the bad things), who demands we stop debating important issues, who publishes strategy memos to defeat Trump, whose attempts to brand himself are laughably lame…

    Cillizza is shallow and stupid and dishonest, and like most of the punditocracy, almost always wrong. Nevertheless, in an institution buried in Cillizza clones, where holding him accountable for his sins would be a condemnation of the entire media-complex, he persists, refuses to change, and is 100% certain that everything he does is equal parts brilliant and precious.

    Tuesday afternoon, though, Cillizza discovered what everyone outside the media bubble thinks of him. Obviously unaware of this truth, Cillizza ventured out for a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) and from every single side of the political spectrum, it was just brutal. Cillizza also learned that CNN is every bit as despised as he is.
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    Love this one......

    are you worried that the media has created a closed loop feedback cycle with a bloated technocratic pundit class increasingly detached from the lives of working americans?
    "Bloated Technocratic Pundit Class....."

    A Punditocracy, if you will :)

    Everybody hates Chris. What a great name for a TV (news)show.
    "Is Uncle Monello homeless?"

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?
