The media is always letting you know who they support and don’t like on the Republican side. The media will either praise or trash candidates that they dislike, and they may even leave others to their own devices.
Ron DeSantis, the Republican candidate for president in 2024 who is expected to be announced by Rick Scott as a Florida governor is an example. The media also paints him as “worse than Trump”, which is a strategy that they have been working on for two years.
DeSantis, the latest example is a Huffington Post writer who declared in an opinion piece that Trump and DeSantis were both equally dangerous for the United States.
“Nobody is more dangerous to the White House than Ron DeSantis, including Donald Trump.”
According to HuffPo’s promo tweets about DeSantis, he is “more calculated and tactical than any other GOP candidate declared or presumed”
The Florida governor is more informed, tactical and calculated, which makes him way more dangerous. https://t.co/Va82zWJfsM

Guest author Dustin Seibert claims DeSantis has “become a beast governor,” and compares the power he supposedly holds over the Florida State Legislature with “Darth Vader using the Force”.
Trump is re-entering the race for the presidency because of his addiction. DeSantis, on the other hand, is a different type of threat. He doesn’t care about legislation that won’t line his pockets.
The Republican Florida Legislature has just concluded its session. It is a beast that bends to the will of the Governor.
DeSantis sounds pretty amazing to me. DeSantis’ rapid response team also agrees that this is like an accident endorsement:

The purpose of hit pieces like this is to create the impression that the Republican candidates are the most dangerous presidents ever. We have heard this every presidential election year since forever:
“Most dangerous person to run for President (checks notes) is DeSantis..yup..we know we’ve been doing this forever but this time we really really mean it!”-Corrupt Regime Media

Is DeSantis in Ozempic? Puck News asked in March. We haven’t heard anything new about the shocking revelation, that DeSantis eats his pudding with his fingers.
They will continue insulting our intelligence no matter who wins the GOP Nomination by publishing these offensive articles.
I’ve said it before, but my advice to Republican voters and independent voters who tend to vote Republican is to ignore media, “analysts” and talking heads as much as possible and do their research on the candidates.
Let the process unfold, with candidates directly presenting to the electorate to be judged. Debating which burger joint is the best is one thing, but it’s quite another to have media figures who are biased tell voters how they should vote.
