Liberals haunted by social media tactics they use against the right
THE HILL Opinion Contributor Madison Gesiotto says:
"The people who have made an industry out of destroying ordinary people's lives over old social media posts and out-of-context comments are very upset that it's happening to them......
.......much of the liberal media sphere went into panic mode, vehemently declaring that this particular exercise of the First Amendment is actually an attack on the First Amendment. The reason why liberal editors are so distraught that independent conservative journalists are publishing evidence of the racist, anti-Semitic, and otherwise vile sentiments expressed by their supposedly "objective" employees comes down - as it usually does - to power.
Many journalists are in the profession not to inform the public, but to gain the power to destroy people who question them - and they don't like those tactics being turned against them. "[U]sing journalistic techniques to target journalists and news organizations ... is fundamentally different from the well-established role of the news media in scrutinizing people in positions of power," the Times wrote in its article - which was of course labeled "news," not "opinion."
