Elitist Clickbait

The American fascist would prefer not to use violence.
His method is to poison the channels of public information.

― Henry A. Wallace

The Trump Administration has redefined truth as "elitist clickbait."

In May, the president appointed Nancy Beck, a former lobbyist for American Chemistry Council, his chief deputy at EPA's toxic chemical unit.

When New York Times reporter Eric Lipton sent EPA a letter asking the agency to explain why it's appropriate to appoint a lobbyist for the chemical companies to rewrite EPA regulations, spokeswoman Liz Bowman replied:

"No matter how much information we give you, you would never write a fair piece. The only thing inappropriate and biased is your continued fixation on writing elitist clickbait trying to attack qualified professionals committed to serving their country."
