CNN’s Brian Stelter last year on Michael Avenatti running for president: “And looking ahead to 2020, one reason I’m taking you seriously as a contender is because of your presence on cable news.” pic.twitter.com/2Wn2bX17kx— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) May 22, 2019

In the Trump era, I refused on principle to waste my braincells covering all of the fake scandals that were stirred up by the corporate media, particularly Russiagate which went on for years. In my view, it made more sense to criticize Trump on the basis of the issues that mattered to us. There was never a shortage of material to work with on his policy record. There was no reason to make stuff up.
Anyway, this Michael Avenatti guy who some of you may remember from the Trump era because the media was constantly slobbering all over him and Robert Mueller recently went down and cried when he was sentenced to prison. Avenatti was a huge PMC shitlib hero at the time.
Note: Just watching the CNN and MSNBC obsession with the Mueller report was one of the things that got me interested in the PMC Question.
