The best part of this exchange between Gov. Ron DeSantis’ press secretary Christina Pushaw and the reporter from the Associated Press is how he signs off: “Don’t really need you anyway.” It’s perfect, because it perfectly mirrors Pushaw’s view of the mainstream media; she doesn’t need them, and she lets them know it. Reporters are always contacting her about her, not the governor, and then giving deadlines for responding — “I’ll be publishing within the hour so respond ASAP,” or I’ll just make stuff up.

“Just don’t put us in a partisan-only category. Criticism is fine. Not a blanket opprobrium. Also, I would say to you, just as someone twice your age with 3 daughters, don’t live your life on social media. It’s ultimately not a happy place. But I do get the job you do as you see it.”

Thanks, Dad.
