I’m still waiting for their Epstein recap. Or better yet, why don’t they bring Jussie Smollett back in for a follow-up interview? Neither one of those stories would require them to wear a hijab.

Get a load of this: The U.S. media’s peculiar (albeit predictable) response to President Donald Trump’s successful assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani continued on Monday during their coverage of the terrorist’s funeral in Tehran.
NPR had reporters on the ground covering the “historic day” and attempting to dispel claims that the grief on display in the streets of the Iranian capital was in any way “coerced” by the authoritarian regime.
Dear Media, I have a few questions for you:
(1) What happens to Iranians who refuse to attend a funeral for their dictators?
(2) What would happen to your “journalists” if they refuse to wear a hijab when doing “journalisming” in Iran? Would they be imprisoned?
Journalists are not capable of reporting the truth from inside Iran. If they do, they are arrested and tortured. This begs the question, (2B) Why go to Iran to cover the story when you can just push your propaganda here in the United States? (I’ll go ahead and answer it for you: because you’re not interested in the truth.)
(3) Your organizations didn’t seem too upset when the Obama administration took out Muammar Gaddafi. Can you send me video feeds from when you traveled to Libya to cover that? Nevermind. I found the feed of the CBS Clinton interview when she gloated about taking him out. “We came, we saw, he died!” That was a cheerful media moment. Got it.
(4) Do you find it empowering when your journalist chooses a “pink hat” for her hijab of the day? It seems like such an empowering feminist move as she sits across from the wolf who’s about to chomp on Little Red Riding Hood — surely the power of pink will stop him. Good on ya.
(5) I’ve not heard one of you talk once about gratitude for our military success for the good of the American people. When y’all backed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an “austere religious scholar” I thought you had stooped to rock bottom, but now you’re asking Iran’s leader “…um…so when do you think you’ll hit the U.S?” like you think he’s going to tell you as he laughs in your face. It’s clear to me who signs your paychecks.

Lastly, on Tuesday morning, I was shocked that Andrea Mitchell wasn’t sporting a hijab at Pompeo’s presser. It would have seemed fitting if she had done so:
The little media mockingbirds continue to spew their 4 AM talking points of the Iranian regime, but Secretary Pompeo is not having it, nor am I. I’m 100% fed up with our media but sorry to be repetitive, I think I’ve made that point pretty clear.
If you sit in the camp of Ben Rhodes, you may disagree with me, if so, please enlighten me and prove me wrong.
