By now, given how crazy this election cycle has been, you might think there’s absolutely nothing that could possibly wow or surprise you, but you’d be wrong.An 11-year-old boy, who happens to be a Donald Trump fan, took an MSNBC anchor to the woodshed for how she described a question the young man asked Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
According to TheBlaze, An 11-year-old Donald Trump supporter called out an MSNBC anchor on Friday over her description of a question the boy had asked of Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.Anchor Chris Jansing suggested had suggested that 11-year-old Matthew Schricker “challenged his loyalty” when he asked Pence at a rally on Thursday night if it would be his job in a Trump administration to “soften up” Trump’s policies and rhetoric.
Schricker took issue with the way his question was portrayed by the left-leaning network, and didn’t shy away from setting the record straight.
“I was not meaning for it to be hostile. As you said before, I was challenging him. No, I was not,” Schricker said. “I was totally just asking him to see if Mr. Trump was approving. I was not trying to be mean to him or challenging him or trying to bait him, like many websites who are saying I was grilling him.”“I was not doing anything to offend him or the Trump campaign, Schricker added.
Jansen then clarified that she meant the characterization “as a compliment,” noting that the 11-year-old had asked a “tough question” of the Republican vice presidential nominee.
It’s easy to understand why Schricker was so sensitive on this point; after all, even an 11-year-old knows the mainstream media isn’t exactly unbiased, as they would pretend to be.
It’s quite comical to see a seasoned journalist taken to task by an 11-year-old, which is likely an encounter she isn’t going to forget anytime soon.
If only “news” organizations like MSNBC actually got back to the root of real objective journalism — or just stopped pretending altogether — our nation would be far better off.[Note: This article was written by Michael Cantrell]
