    Ha, I follow Miller. He’s a good follow because he’s kind of an idiot but in a funny way. He’s basically the epitome of whataboutism.

      • I don’t follow Miller but I do others who retweet him. I hope he posts other things besides media bias, because that seems to obsession.
        "...you pointy-headed autopsy nerd. Do you think it's possible for you to post without using words like "hilarious," "absurd," "canard," and "truther"? Your bare assertions do not make it so. Maybe your reasoning is too stunted and your vocabulary is too limited to go without these epithets."

          He tweets a ton of stuff. The trick is to not take any of it seriously. He likes to show the liberal hypocrisy, which can be really funny and sad at times.

            Media bias is his wheelhouse. He excels at pointing out hypocrisy on the left by essentially just using their same language and reactions when the shoe is on the other foot. It's targeted whataboutism to make his point. He is entertaining. It's especially funny when the obvious hypocrisy of one of his targets is completely lost on them.

            But I had to stop following him. It's just too much culture war content in my timeline. I'm trying to ignore as much of the culture war as possible right now. The negativity of both sides eats at your soul.

              Yeah, I am not sure whataboutism is an entirely fair label in this case. Whataboutism is rationalizing bad behavior but much of what he does is point out legit examples of hypocrisy. There is a difference.

                A fair distinction.
