A Slobbering Media Love Affair
Credit for that phrase goes to Bernie Goldberg who authored a 2009 New York Times bestseller by a similar name. Goldberg’s full title was “A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (and Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance between Obama and the Mainstream Media.”
If Michelle Obama were to win the Democrat’s 2020 presidential nomination, then Goldberg would only have to change the cover photo and not the title.
The prospect of an African-American woman becoming the first female president would send the mainstream media into a state of sustained orgasmic ecstasy. But voters watching the unspeakable horrors of a Trump vs. Obama campaign war would demand a national distribution of Valium, and earplugs. By comparison, the Trump/Clinton 2016 race would be fondly remembered as respectful and gracious.
