Meghan McCain writes that media people have no chance to bring America together again

Last week CNN The Stotlers outline a middle-class family and describe how inflation in Biden’s America has affected their weekly grocery prices.

They are a family of eleven with nine children, who revealed that they consume twelve gallons of milk a week.

It should have been a piece that focused the attention of the US media and Twitter on how quickly and furiously inflation is impacting the average Americans’ daily living expenses.

I didn’t find anything particularly controversial when I saw it. I only have a thirteen month old baby and you will be amazed at the amount of milk we drink for him in a week.

If you look at the slice it’s a pretty straightforward account that follows the Stotler family grocery shopping and how they use coupons to buy low-grade, cheap food for their family.

The Stotlers, a Texas family of 11, were the subject of ridicule on social media when it was revealed they drink 12 gallons of milk per week

But the Left did not see this.

“Milk” began trending on Twitter as Too Cool for School New York Times writers and media people mocked the family for the amount of cow juice and asked why CNN instead focused on how much fare. The piece did not boom in the past year.

The media’s elite response to the problems of average American families has always been something that infuriates me.

At this point most people already know the gross disparities between those who report and comment contemptuously on the average American life and those who are actually living in it.

The liberal media bubble is not an invention of the mad authority. It’s real and it’s visceral, and it’s completely eroding trust between people who worry about what a gallon of milk is worth and people who spend all their time between the beltways and the shores. spend.

And that’s just print journalists, don’t get me started on the on-air commentators and hosts who spend all their time between Manhattan and the Hamptons or ‘the Sag’ – as the cool kids call Sag Harbor.

Sadly, none of this is new.

After Trump’s victory in 2016, there were a multitude of liberal journalists and media people who didn’t feel like they were coming who vowed to understand and report more accurately on Central America. No prizes for guessing how it worked.

Instead they seem to be more isolated from the vast majority of ordinary people and if you are paying attention you can see small examples everywhere.

'A gallon of milk was $1.99.  Now it's $2.79.  When you buy 12 gallons a week for four weeks, that's a lot of money,' Christa Stotler said

Last week Food Insider put out a tone deaf video from a few days ago, where they first spotted Cracker Barrel — the hugely popular restaurant chain and store as well — sending Millennials from New York City to New Jersey.

The youth in the video react just as you would expect.

He mocked it with condescending and ironic remarks to the ‘gelatin’ item on the menu as if he had traveled 45 minutes from Manhattan to visit a strange and primitive land for some sort of anthropological experiment.

What an insult to the millions of Americans who love Cracker Barrel. Like me For a lot of American families Cracker Barrel, like many chain restaurants in the country, is a great and reasonably priced destination for dinner.

My personal favorite is ‘Grandfather’s Country Fried Breakfast’ which consists of two eggs, grits, and meat of your choice with gravy. It is served throughout the day and is delicious too.

If you are so inclined then you can also buy rocking chairs for home decoration or from inside. This is a quintessential American chain restaurant that has saved my life several times during my years at street book and speaking tours and political events.

So why am I so angry? Because a media that treats people driving F-150 trucks, cracker barrel eaters, people who vote for Glenn Youngkin and own guns, etc., like animals in a zoo, is not doing its job. .

How can average Americans be more trusting of the media when it doesn’t take the time to really know or understand them and treat them with contempt?

And the media can’t expect people to stop lying to them and voting about how they really feel and who they’re really voting for when they’re ridiculed for how much they do in a week. Milk and what they eat at their favorite restaurant in America. ,

Americans will remain divided until those whose sacred duty it is to report their lives, to all of them with equal respect and understanding.
