 @Brian Schatz Encourage reporters to read this, it’s a near-perfect assessment of something they should have figured out on their own a long time ago -

(THREAD) This thread explains why most journalists tasked with questioning Trump fail. It's written by a professor who not only teaches journalism but also rhetoric and composition—the latter two topics the crux of the problem for many journalists. I hope you'll read and RETWEET.

It is stomach-churning that the first thoughts these Senators had to a dire & classified  #COVID briefing was how to profit off this crisis. They didn’t mobilize to help families, or prep response. They dumped stock. Sen. Loeffler needs to resign, too. https://www.thedailybeast.com/sen-kelly-loeffler-dumped-millions-in-stock-after-coronavirus-briefing

Here’s the problem: These are not briefings. These are sales pitches from  @President Trump on his own behalf-laced w/shots at whoever he’s mad at that day and weird side trips to push untested drugs. What people need is useful 411 about what we need to do and should expect.

@John Oliver I hope you know how much you and everyone at  @Last Week Tonight are helping me get through this. Truly grateful. Thank you.  #neverforget  #thatourpresidentisanindescribabledick

Tonight’s was the most cringe worthy. Knowing the Joe Biden was doing a Townhall at seven, the Trump PR team he still scheduled their conference for the same our despite having nothing to say. And the cable news networks still pathetically covered Trump. 3/

When he dismisses a question or questioner with abuse and disdain, The others fall in line and bow down. Almost never follow by asking the dismissed question again. And come back again and again to cover his phony press conferences that give him hours of free campaign time. 2/

The best analogy I can think of for the relationship between the White House press corps and Donald Trump is that of an abused spouse Who keeps coming back for more abuse, caught in the thrall of a sociopath, feeling unworthy to challenge. He abuses, they fall in line. 1/

So he's telling people to take an unproven & unapproved medication, and others to go to church... Trump really wants 'em dead, huh?

The President’s need to be on camera, forces his coronavirus team to scramble to prepare for a briefing in which they have no news, draining HOURS from their 24 hour a day struggle to contain this.. Trumps need for attention is costing precious time

Yes that is precisely the bar. Vote for the non sociopathic, non racist, non serial rapist who won’t kill us all. There’s the bar for you.

 @Reza Aslan That’s the bar now? For president of the US? Vote Biden because he is not those things?

There just aren’t beds. Don’t mistake sending a ship or building a field hospital as remedying the situation. It’s a full on a crisis and people are dying. The hospital system was not built to handle this. The state needs help.

I actually think the press is going to have to get a bit more disruptive. If Trump is going to lie and shout journalists down in order to dangerously misinform the public during a pandemic, they should consider interrupting and other impolite tactics to get to the truth.

Trump is lying about the cure because he knows people blame him for the disease. Some of his friends may stand to profit somewhere but Trump is always about Trump. He compulsively serves only his fragile ego needs. That’s it. There is nothing more to him. 4/4

After all, if a miracle drug is poised to save us, all of this is just a rough patch to get through. Of course, there is no miracle cure, he knows that and is lying... ...but when that is proven, he’ll just move on to the next lie to delay, diminish or deflect blame again. 3/

 @Maggie Haberman  @Jonathan Swan God damnit,  @CNN  @MSNBC  @ABC News  @CBS News  @NBC News , this is exactly why you should NOT air the briefings live. You are just giving Trump free rallies. STOP!

He’s been a doddering fool for a long time on Twitter, but now he is a greedy menace.

Hey  @jack  @Leslie Berland  @Kayvon Beykpour  @Vijaya Gadde this is Alex Jones level flackery on still unproven medical info for his personal gain. This is second time, methinks.

EXCLUSIVE:  @Donald J. Trump may be right. A NEW French study shows the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine & azithromycin! Get THIS study & Dr. Zelenko’s treatment results of 699 patients (all still alive) by going to http://RudyGiulianiCS.com & subscribing in the next 24 hours!

This is the second time Giuliani has pushed this Coronavirus disinformation. It’s a shame that  @Twitter Safety and  @jack can’t stick to their own rules.

Hey  @jack  @Leslie Berland  @Kayvon Beykpour  @Vijaya Gadde this is Alex Jones level flackery on still unproven medical info for his personal gain. This is second time, methinks.

He knows he lost his shit right there with the AP and that’s why he’s getting off the stage. Too late.

I don’t know why I turned this on. I wish I hadn’t.  @Donald J. Trump has no compassion, no clue, and, clearly, no comprehension of what kind of human suffering his incompetence is causing.

 #BoyocttABC  #BoycottCBS  #BoycottNBC  #BoycottCNN  #BoycottAnyMediaOutlet and BOYCOTT THEIR ADVERTISERS until they stop giving this lying piece of shit airtime.  @ABC News  @NBC News  @CBS News  @CNN
