Wah, wah, wah—I’m Dana, and media hurts my feelings

Having spent the past 2 1/2 decades working in journalism, I watched this exchange between Dana Rohrabacher and a bunch of reporters and thought this singular thing: Wah.




Poor wittle Dana, calls a big bad press conference to discuss an issue on his mind, then doesn’t like it when the mean reporters with their poopy mouths dare ask him questions related to something else.

It must be “Fake news,” because—heaven forbid—Dana Rohrabacher ever take a serious question from a reporter who doesn’t lick his shoes.

God, this stuff infuriates me. And not as a Democrat. As a human, and as a writer. The job of representative comes with certain conditions, and one of those is you speak with the press and you take their questions.

Dana rarely does this.

Perhaps with good reason.
