Just in case you were unclear about who the mainstream media was pushing for President, along comes a certified member of that establishment with a public declaration of the private feelings of the media elites.

The Los Angeles Times on Thursday fired a freelance reporter who tweeted that he hoped Donald Trump would die.

“Earlier today, Steven Borowiec, a freelance journalist in South Korea, posted a tweet about Donald Trump on his personal Twitter profile that violated our professional standards,” the paper said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.

“The Los Angeles Times is committed to fair, evenhanded coverage of the presidential campaign, and expects all journalists representing the paper, including non-staff contributors such as Mr. Borowiec, to adhere to this standard in their articles and social media posts,” it said. “We regard Mr. Borowiec’s comment as inexcusable, and we have ended our relationship with him.”

It is commendable that the L.A. Times acted so quickly to distance themselves from the freelance reporter who committed this gaffe.  But remember, a gaffe is when you accidentally tell the truth.

    “‘The Los Angeles Times is committed to fair, evenhanded coverage of the presidential campaign . . . .'” The Los Angeles wrote this? Really? Only extreme leftist toadies would believe such a claim.
