Greg Gutfeld: The media fulfilling prophecy, they keep saying it until it become real

1 22 0

'Gutfeld!' panel discusses the media making a big deal over little issues

You heard of the self-fulfilling prophecy. It's when you adopt a goal that influenced your behavior in a way that causes that goal to become a reality.

It's like Emily Compagno wanting to work with the greatest talk show host ever, and here she is.

Not for long, anyway. She's getting on my nerves.

But if you think you're never going to go anywhere in life, you won't. If you think of others as achieving at your expense, leaving you behind, you will be left behind.

Likewise, if you believe you can achieve greatness, bar getting a job at CNN, it will happen.

But if you focus on division, you will remain divided. The power of positive and negative thinking are two sides of the same coin, and you control the flip.


It wasn't always like that, especially for Blacks. The scale was weighted against them.

But unless you're Asian trying to get into Harvard, discrimination is illegal. The Democrat legacy of Jim Crow is gone, all that's left are the accusation that it isn't.

The left is convinced the scale is not only weighted against minorities but that the scale is permanently broken, which is just not true - unless Stelter used it recently.

All that's left is dishonest hyperbole, where voter ID is what the media calls Jim Crow on crack.

I call this the media fulfilling prophecy. What if the media creates a narrative that it reinforces daily until it feels true to those who consume it.

I don't think I even need the what-if in that sentence.........
