Cooper to Conway: Your answer makes no sense
Commentators often appear to be experts and that perception gets sidelined when the anchors actually host an expert or two. Nothing changes however when the fact remains that potus45 was a hero for many Americans in spite of what was known about him.
The impunity with which he dumped his venom was never confronted until after the election, and just barely. Cooper’s unvarnished confrontation of lady Alternative Facts lacked one simple approach: asking closed questions, leaving the guest lots of room to try to hide a yes or no in the anti-Obama slop that 45’s surrogates relish.
The media is waking up and somewhat late. Factchecking doesn’t work if one’s father is the father of lies. Lies in business, lies in politics! Just what America needs to redeem itself. One lie to the FBI and the holodeck reality nightmare of potus45 disappears like wax in the presence of fire.
The people who bring us the news do not need confrontation per se. It is far better to contend for the good that is America, than to to go chasing the backward-looking dream of a quasi-magnate and sparring with a rag tag band of deluded robots. A good dose of courage and strategic interrogation will stop 45’s surrogates dead in their serpentine tracks.
