Tweets And Miracle Of The Day - Normalizing Media Edition

Notice in the tweet below how CBS News characterizes the reception afforded neo- fascist media bully Donald "Rump" Trump today ("... greeted with cheers") and then listen for yourself:

Like Jesus turned water into wine, CBS News has miraculously turned boos into cheers! Now that's news you can trust!  Welcome to Trump's America!  Booo!  (That's a cheer!)

Hours later the language of the tweet hasn't been changed by CBS News, even though the announcer clearly noted that there were boos. Rump really must have gotten to those network execs at his shakedown meeting yesterday (CBS President and Rump cheerleader Les Moonves: "How long would you like me to bend over and grab my ankles, sir?").

Some responses:

It goes on, but you get the idea - it's the same lying, normalizing, bar- lowering media we've come to loathe.
