Mike's Blog Round Up

We learned Tuesday night that Donald Trump has banned his White House staff from appearing on CNN (which might be the best thing to happen to CNN in ages, but I digress), and so today the Roundup looks at the media. Yes, we must.

The Hunting of the Snark looks at how Ross Douthat is trying to normalize Trump.

The Rectification of Names looks at David Brooks 'Faustian deal'.

The Great Consolidation begs the media to listen to Driftglass. We do too!

Perrspectives tells us about another lie coming from Trump that the media is not questioning enough if at all.

Bonus Track: Goblin Books follows his bliss and hilariously trolls the backpfeifengesicht Nazi, er, Alt-Right leader white nationalist Richard Spencer.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors. You can follow Tengrain on the Twitters, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to (with For MBRU in the subject line).
