What Is Your Job

Just repeating this point, basically. Journalists spend years knowingly conveying a false impression of what's going on and then get really fucking excited when someone like Boehner pens a tell all.

And, ok, they have their weird little conventions about "off the record" and "background" so they can't always share the specifics of what they know, but the top political people get on teevee all the time and do "ANALYSIS" and it is here that they basically just lie.

The fiction they present to the country is one they've all agreed on. And now they're all on twitter basically saying "lol Boeher, we all knew that at the time." Oh, cool. Thanks for all that, you assholes.
