Daniel Greenfield:

In the words of Popeye, “That’s all I can stands, cuz I can’t stands n’more!”

And then there’s Brian Karem, who threw a tantrum at a press conference because the press is being bullied.

The reporter who lashed out at the Trump administration on Tuesday said Wednesday that reporters have to stand up and fight President Trump’s effort to dismiss the media, and said he blew up at spokeswoman Sarah Sanders because he “can’t take it anymore.”

“For the government to sit there and undermine essentially what [are] very essential checks and balances in the system, it’s disheartening, it’s unnerving,” said reporter Brian Karem, who writes for Playboy, on MSNBC.

“I can’t take it anymore,” he said.

Vox headline: “A heroic Playboy reporter defended CNN’s honor at the White House press briefing”.

CNN, Playboy and Vox would seem to have equal amounts of honor. But why exactly does Playboy even have press credentials? There’s been much mainstream media whining about conservative journalists getting credentials. No complaints about Playboy having credentials though. That’s part of the “honorable” profession.

Anyway Karem doesn’t know anything about how checks and balances work. A bunch of corporate media outlets that toe the Dem party line is not balancing anything. Or checking anything.

And now more unbalanced and unchecked whining.

“She took the opportunity first thing off the bat to go after the media,” he said. “She was trying to go after CNN specifically and the media in general. We’ve been called the enemy of the people from that White House, we’ve been told that we’re fake news.”

“We are bullied and browbeaten every day, and I pretty much have had enough of it,” he said. “We can’t take the bullying anymore. It’s undermining the fourth estate, it’s undermining the first amendment.”

The White House criticizing the media does not undermine the first amendment. And this is America, not France, we don’t have a fourth estate.
