Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) did himself no favors when he attended the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.
Manchin absolutely trashed the media during a panel discussion. The pushback was immediate and fierce.
Now Manchin is trying to backpedal, but I doubt it will help his case.
The Problem is the Media
Machin, while speaking among his fellow elitists, stated, "The problem that we have is the open press system and basically all the platforms.
"So if you're able to have five platforms, social platforms that you can basically personify the extremes, somebody who is extremely right or extremely left, and it seems like that is the majority speaking, they're not the majority, but they're basically driving everybody to make a decision."
The pushback came quickly. For instance, Stephen Miller stated, "One of the (many) reasons we must focus more on Davos is because our political & financial elite hunger for validation from the global elite. Just as yesterday's Marxist academic theory becomes today's dogma, so too does a Davos panel today become tomorrow's regulatory framework."

After so much pushback, Manchin did exactly as expected, and apologized.
He went on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo and stated, "It used to be where something was said, and it was accepted and that was it. Now it's said to where, you can find a social media platform, you can find somebody to agree with you. And pretty soon, the hate comes out."
I really do not buy the apologies after these people say something confidently, then get hammered for it when they thought they would get slapped on the back and told great job.
I have voiced my opinion about Joe Manchin on several occasions in that I believe he is a complete and utter fraud. He pretends to be a moderate, but he is neck-deep in the swamp.
