New York Times Turns Cummings Death Into Anti-Trump Clickbait

I'm not the biggest fan of Rep. Elijah Cummings, but perhaps his life was defined by more than just the current anti-Trump hashtag?

Nope, says the New York Times.

Elijah E. Cummings, Powerful Democrat Who Investigated Trump, Dies at 68  

Nope, says the Washington Post.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, Democratic leader and regular Trump target, dies at 68 

Nope, says his own hometown paper, the Baltimore Sun

U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, longtime advocate for Baltimore and civil rights and key figure in Trump impeachment inquiry, dies at 68  

Even the Sun has to get the Trump impeachment in there.

Imagine reducing Pelosi or Schiff's life to, "advocated Trump's impeachment." And yet that's what the media's desperate pursuit of anti-Trump clickbait has done. It makes everything irrelevant except impeaching Trump.

The headline about Cummings' death has to mention impeachment or no one will read it.
