Had you paid attention to mainstream media just a few months ago, you would have been assured that Gov. Ron DeSantis’ fight against CDC dictates in relation to cruises was futile. In a pattern that has become all too common in our political environment, so-called “experts” were sought out by biased news outlets to tell them exactly what they wanted to hear. Namely, that DeSantis was going to lose.

Now, those experts have been shown to be wrong, again. As RedState reported, a judge ruled against the CDC’s edicts in relation to vaccines and cruises, handing DeSantis another major victory.

Of course, the receipts were kept, and now it’s time for the airing of grievances.

If you aren’t familiar with local Florida politics, you may not be aware of just how awful the Miami Herald is. This is the same outlet that has repeatedly fluffed lying, conspiracy theorist Rebekah Jones, and they did so as recently as last month despite overwhelming evidence that she’s a fraud.

Yet, the Herald is hardly alone in trotting out “experts” who turn out to be anything but. One of the most common tactics in left-wing media (i.e. almost all traditional news outlets) is to search out some professor or self-described authority to rebut anything a Republican does. It doesn’t matter how solid the ground being fought on actually is. Rather, if a Republican is doing something, it must be bad and ill-advised. Obviously, DeSantis showed that attitude to be foolhardy.

Of course, it’s not just academics who show their lack of real knowledge regularly in the media. Lawyers writing for news outlets also play the same game. The result is typically the same.
