CNN presenter’s explosive attack on Governor DeSantis demonstrates the network’s commitment to the “performing arts”: Concha


The journalism industry has evolved into a “look at me movement,” Fox News employee Joe Concha said on Wednesday, calling CNN presenter Brianna Keilar an explosive attack on Florida governor Ron DeSantis, the latest example of the network’s “commitment to art.”

Keilar called the Republican governor “a” on Tuesday’s show after he scolded a reporter from the same network for appearing to blame him for distributing the coronavirus vaccine at local Florida hospitals.

“This is CNN’s model,” Concha told Steeve Doocy, co-host of “Fox & Friends.” “We’ve seen Jim Acosta at White House press conferences, or April Ryan, where they’re confronted, often it’s a fictional Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Sean Spicer, or Trump, and then continue to talk about how they’ve become so victimized because that person in power or spokesman was so evil with them. “

Concha noted that during his probationary exchange with Governor DeSantis on Monday, the camera of CNN reporter Rosa Flores was focused on accusing him of having no plans to ensure that seniors don’t have to wait in long lines for vaccinations. .

DeSantis criticized Flores for not researching the issues raised in his question while trying to speak on it. After a tense exchange of views, DeSantis explained that the coronavirus vaccine had been distributed to hospitals and that hospitals were deciding how to administer it.

“How often do you see a gag at an external press conference when the reporter gets a camera and the interrogated one gets a camera,” Concha said. “The reason he does this is because, as a reporter, he seeks to make a montage with the sole intention of not getting a response to inform the public, but to make a narrative and be viral. That’s the big thing to say.”

According to Concha, Keilar’s ​​use of “one word” proves that the network’s intent is “not to inform” but to “fulfill”.

It’s a” look at me “movement in journalism for many, by being more explicit or confronted with making monologues. asking informative, pointed questions.
