Ron Johnson is right: As he wrote in an op-ed for The Hill. biased media won't ask Democrats tough questions.
So good on him for pointing out how it's unfair to be confronted on "Meet the Press"
- - whose invitation to appear he accepted - - with really daunting, partisan queries like, "can we please answer the question I asked you....?" about first-hand knowledge of minor matters like truth-telling about alleged Presidential law-breaking and extortion?
Though a question about some wording in his op-ed for The Hill begs this question: Were these lines dictated by Donald Trump, or does the staffer who wrote or signed off them still have a taxpayer-paid job?
The fact that Donald Trump fearlessly and pugnaciously challenged media bias helped him secure the Republican nomination and continues to deepen the support he enjoys among his base. His supporters also sympathize with what he has had to endure since the day he was elected.
And here's a related question: The response on "Morning Joe:" Best analysis, or best analysis ever?
Co-host Joe Scarborough called out Johnson’s “sniveling, quisling-like performance” before throwing to Mike Barnicle, who said the Republican senator “appears to be very limited intellectually.”
And, golly: Look at the additional questions and subjects that might pop up anytime Johnson opens his mouth for a reporter who might want to know more about an earlier time Johnson opened his mouth, like:
* How, exactly, are environmentalist activists jihadis and Stalinists?
* And on a related matter: How is it that sunspots cause climate change?
* Can you give an example of why you said Ayn Rand's writing was "foundational," was this an original thought balloon or were you channeling Paul Ryan at the time, and if Obamacare is "the greatest assault on our freedom in my lifetime," where does 9/11 fit in?
* And a follow-up question? We know that Russian election meddling in 2016 was not the greatest assault on our freedom in your lifetime because you said it was "overblown," but speaking of Russia, can you provide us with a fuller account of your July 4th trip to Russia?
* One more follow-up, please? Since you received the 4th largest reported amount of funding for the 2016 elections from the NRA, and it's become known that the NRA was a conduit for Russian influence and financing, according to some people you work with every day - - a US Senate committee controlled by your party - - can you give us a fuller account of your July 4th trip to Russia?
* And, again, on the matter of freedom, you told a high school class that access to health care was a privilege and not a right because government in America is only obligated to guarantee freedom, not things like health and housing. So what about food? Privilege, or right? Oh, sorry, you already said food was a privilege, too. My bad.
* Was failing to notify the police of an alleged sexual assault against one of your own staff members the best way to deter such offenses? (Spoiler alert: No.)
* Was a television station's recent deleting some of your words "for grammar," as it explained, your idea, and/or a good one?
