Suddenly The Media Doesn’t Like Background Checks

At least when they are applied to them:

The law enforcement agency—whose once-pristine reputation has been tarnished in recent years by scandal, congressional investigations and, more to the point, aggressive investigative reporting—is for the first time ever running background checks on thousands of journalists who want to attend this summer’s Republican and Democratic Party nominating conventions.

Sucks to be treated like a criminal so you can exercise your constitutional rights doesn’t it? Gee, what other group of people has to endure that regularly that you sycophants like to malign when your masters tell you to? I find myself fresh out of sympathy.

    Yep. “Welcome to the party, pal!”

    Some online have starting referring to “background checks” as “PPYI checks”.

    PPYI == Preemptively Prove Your Innocence.

    Sounds about right.

    They won’t get the connection. “Well that’s different…”

    I think the Secret Service is really scared about an assassination especially against Trump. I think this is wrong but understandable.

      I don’t even want to think about the fallout from an attempted assassination on either candidate.
