Many Americans were touched and inspired by the Washington Post’s poetic Super Bowl ad honoring the countless journalists who have given their lives in wartime and other crises, “To bring you the story. No matter the cost.”
But not Donald Trump Jr. On Twitter, he accused journalists of seeking to buy “undeserved credibility” for “their leftist BS.”
You know how MSM journalists could avoid having to spend millions on a #superbowl comercial to gain some undeserved credibility?
How about report the news and not their leftist BS for a change.

That provoked indignant reactions from others on Twitter.
Wow. How low can you go? Especially when they honored some of those who gave their lives to report the truth. What are you willing to give your life for?

This how the President’s child reacted to the Washington Post’s #SuperBowl commercial that honored journalists, including those who lost their lives like Jamal Khashoggi.
Trying to discredit the media won’t change the fact you lied to Congress junior.https://t.co/M9gVUVLTq5

Only someone with no use or respect for the truth would mock an ad that honors journalists who have given their lives for it. #Disgraceful

A lot of brave, honest journalists have given their lives to make sure we live in a better informed world.
