A Media Operative who covered the Democrats’ Gun Control Tantrum on the floor of the House of Representatives now says he feels like a ‘Stooge’ for letting the Democrats use him to promote their agenda, and now he feels dirty about it.
USA Today’s Washington correspondent Paul Singer is calling himself a “stooge” for covering the House Democrats’ anti-gun sit-in last week, saying the moment that representatives cheered the press for its coverage of the “stunt” was one of the most embarrassing moments of his journalism career.
The lawmakers then turned to the galleries and thanked the visitors for their support, and everybody cheered some more. That was another no-no — lawmakers are prohibited from acknowledging the galleries from the floor,” Mr. Singer wrote.
“And then, my moment of shame,” he continued. “Someone on the floor called out thanks to the press, saying our reporting had spread the word and fueled their protest. The 100-or-so Members of Congress on the floor and the several hundred partisans in the gallery cheered for us. My colleagues and I were mortified.”
Mr. Singer said he didn’t want any credit for “helping Democrats perpetrate what Republicans correctly labeled a ‘stunt.’”
It’s just now sinking into this “professional journalist” that the Democrat Party is just using him? Maybe the twenty-dollar bill Democrat politicians leave on his dresser after an ‘interview’ should have clued him in a long time ago.
