Last November, Washington Monthly contributor David Atkins wondered aloud how to go about deprogramming Trump voters:

To be fair, Mika, the MSM’s firehose of falsehoods has been spewing propaganda & lies for a lot longer than that. Don’t sell yourselves short!
This is laughable. The media generally, and NBC in particular has been wellsprings of disinformation. The autocratic demands here are embarrassing.

And let’s not forget about Team Biden’s own role in sowing the seeds of anti-vaxx fear.
But Mika Brzezinski wants us to forget about that. She wants us to forget all about the irreparable damage the Left — including the media — caused by letting their hatred for Donald Trump trump their concern for people’s welfare.
