The idiot mainstream media

Here's Jonah Goldberg yesterday: "You Idiot Reporters Are Making It Worse."  "Every 15 seconds, you’re demonstrating why millions of people love it when Trump calls you the fake news."

And here he is today with a follow-up:
Every profession, class, and group is prone to tribal thinking (technically: the coalition instinct), but the press is one of the very few that takes profound offense at the suggestion this observation applies to them. This haughtiness invites rage at times like this. And, while you can complain about Trump fueling that rage, responding to it with even more haughtiness just perpetuates the cycle.
Yeah, sure, it all started with Trump.

Extra - Instapundit: "Modern journalism in one tweet."
