McConnell’s Parallel Government

Our private sector must stop taking cues from the Outrage-Industrial Complex. Americans do not need or want big business to amplify disinformation or react to every manufactured controversy with frantic left-wing signaling… From election law to environmentalism to radical social agendas to the Second Amendment, parts of the private sector keep dabbling in behaving like a woke parallel government. Corporations will invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-left mobs to hijack our country from outside the constitutional order.

Obviously, this quote is stupid. No, corporations and the left do not hold sentimental fuzzy feelings towards each other. No, massive multinational companies are not in favor of increasing environmental regulations. No, random woke scolds on Twitter do not influence the policy of the richest people on the planet. Of course, the Republicans are the party of big business. This is boring. Everyone knows this.

Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.
