CBS The Morning anchor Gayle King accidentally said “we were all laughing” at Republicans when the Republican convention seemed threatened with disorder, clearly lamenting that the Democrats were now themselves a “hot mess” because their convention is where violence is threatened.
That’s a good little window into the presumptions of Washington journalists. She’s there with her colleagues and feels comfortable remarking that they were “laughing” at the Republicans, because of course everyone would be in agreement that bad tidings for Republicans is pretty funny.
Unless a journalist is with an obviously conservative or right-leaning media outlet, you can pretty much assume they are liberal. But you knew that.
