If a conservative journalist told Barack Obama to “shut up” and “act like a man,” he would’ve been chastised by every far-left group a person could name – and then 10 more.
There’s a good chance liberal CNN political analyst Brian Karem will get away with saying the same thing about President Trump, though.
From Daily Wire:
On Wednesday, CNN political analyst Brian Karem attacked President Donald Trump for his tweet criticizing the media for its overwhelmingly negative coverage of his administration, saying that the president needs to “shut up and take your medicine.”
The Fake News is working overtime. Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake). Why do we work so hard in working with the media when it is corrupt? Take away credentials?

“Shut up and take your medicine,” he added. “Act like a man, for heaven’s sake, every president takes criticism.”

Free Beacon has more:
“He makes us the enemy. We’re not the enemy of the people,” he said. “We are the people. We are the people represented in that room … We have to be fair. We have to be fair. That’s all there is to it, but at the end of the day, that cannot mean that we do not point out the foibles of a president who by saying this, proves he’s unfit to hold office.”
Contrary to Karem’s claim that the correspondents were representative of the people, in 2016, Politico Magazine‘s poll of White House correspondents revealed zero registered Republicans, while 27 percent of respondents said they were Democrats. In 2017, five percent of the 63 polled reporters were Republicans, against 16 percent declared Democrats.
Hey, Brian, the MSM’s coverage of Trump is 91% negative. What’s crazy is that his approval numbers are on the rise.
Care to explain?
