House Republicans Embrace Mainstream Media After Years of Bashing “Fake News”

From a Washington Post analysis by Paul Kane headlined “House GOP embraces mainstream media after years of bashing ‘fake news'”:

Awakening from a traditional media hibernation, House Republicans have begun to blitz the airwaves they previously shunned with brushoffs about the “lamestream media.”

On any given day now, the new GOP majority posts a half-dozen or more members on CNN and MSNBC — two networks that increasingly became no-go zones for conservative lawmakers in the Trumpian era of “fake news” attacks. Republicans have appeared on streaming network news shows online and done interviews on those nightly news shows for cable.
