The following transcript is Todd Starnes monologue from the Todd Starnes Radio Show:
You know, some of the most hated people in America are journalists, and most of them deserve it. Most of them deserve it because they’re horrible human beings. I mean, they suck and I get it.
They got a job to do, but they don’t even know how to do their job. But I got to read this to you:
So Governor Northam about six hours ago said that, ‘Oh yeah, we’re working to help you, people.’
So a guy named Adam wrote in response, ‘I’ve been stuck in my car on I-95 for eight and a half hours without my insulin.’ That’s terrible. ‘Can someone please send help? I’m starting to feel very weak.’
So the correct response would be somebody get a helicopter, get people out there and let’s help this guy, and I’m sure there are other people that are going through very similar circumstances.
So a reporter for The Washington Post responded. Her name is Hannah Natanson. She’s one of the blue checkmark people. She says, ‘Hi Adam, I’m so sorry to hear this. I’m a reporter for The Washington Post writing about the I-95 traffic, and I’d love to speak with you. Could you DM or email me?’
Well, you know what, Hanna? Unless you got some insulin for Adam, why don’t you just shut up? Unbelievable.
These people this is why and this is why people hate reporters, it’s just pathetic.
Update: Washington Post reporter Hannah Natanson removed the tweet following public backlash.
