Competing Chyrons

As the Head of the EU and President Trump addressed the White House Press this afternoon, these chyrons appeared on the bottom of each screen:

Trump Makes Surprise Statement as Pompeo Grilled on Russia – CNN
President Trump: The EU will Buy Soybeans and Work toward Zero Tariffs – FOX
Trump Speaks on Trade After Alleged Trump, Cohen Audio Surfaces – MSNBC

That’s the American Media today in a nutshell.

News Affronts

Cable News has decided the Russia collusion obsession isn’t selling that well. So now. They’re competing with the Weather Channel. Stormy reports 24/7. Even crazier. Reports on no Stormy reports from Trump. Like there’s nothing else going on in the world. Kim on a mystery train to a meeting with Xi in China. South Korea making a trade deal with the U.S. Facebook selling your data and affecting tech stocks. Old Supreme giving the NRA its best talking point ever.

Never mind. CNN is back to Russia again.
