The MSM need to learn

15 Dec

that one can’t cry “wolf”repeatedly (with accusations being totally empty) too many times before people just ignore you as an annoying but empty gadfly. If you repeatedly show that you are untrustworthy,  people will eventually ignore you. And THAT is exactly what you are seeing happening.

And THAT is precisely what the MSM have done in regard to Trump. The latest gaffe is that CNN breathlessly reported that Trump Jr. got important information from (who else?) the Russians before it was public, and that proves illegal collusion!

Well, it turns out that all these “layers of fact-checkers” all (deliberately?) mis-read the date on the email. It was actually just a garden-variety fan reporting what was already publicly released. CNN has yet to admit that they screwed up. But everyone knows that they did. DUH!

And of course they won’t admit it. Because the next obvious question is, “If you screwed up on something as simple as this, what else have you said that is unreliable?” Maybe “The Most Trusted Name In News” is just an advertising schtick meant to fool the rubes! Like the letter my sister-in-law showed me of a company selling “Real Faux Diamonds!” at an amazingly good price for diamonds.  Yeah, in French the word “faux” translates to … false. In this case, glass chips. As a girl in her early 20s, she naturally was fooled and thought they were actual diamonds. As a Francophone, I filled her in.

The solution? Truth and honesty. If the MSM reported with truth and honesty people would believe them again. They need a diverse set of employees (diverse in viewpoint, not merely skin color). Yes, it would take 5 years or so, but they would regain their credibility. Right now, the MSM is just another word for… false.

 

 

Yeah, the MSM

11 Dec

just got humiliated.

These guys don’t tell the truth, except when the truth happens to coincide with their pre-conceived notions. And that is not very often.

You need to understand that you are NOT getting the truth from these sources. You are only getting opinions, and what makes their opinions better than any other person’s? Huh?

The MSM turning to the “dark side” means the end of reliable reporting. These are NOT reporters, they are merely partisan shills. We live in a Post-Modern world…

 

Sooooo,

11 Dec

trust the MSM because they make errors.

Honestly, that’s got to be the dumbest thing I’ve heard in decades–maybe my whole life! I mean, that is dumb on a cosmic level! I’m rendered speechless by the stupidity. I’m just gobsmacked by this level of moron-ness.

 

Yet another

10 Dec

CNN fail.

What, are these folks total idiots? And you are dumb enough to put a stupid grin on your face and lap up what they put in your bowl? REALLY?

Here is what will happen: Trump will run for re-election, and CNN and the rest of the MSM will have an apoplectic fit, but no wise person will give a flying fig as to what they say, in terms of truth-value. Some of what they say might even be true, though there’s just no way to know.

The end result is that you are guided by your internal moral compass. That has been the case for some time, but it is now quite obvious. So the issue then is not facts, but conversion. Yes, we live in a post-modern world.

 

Roy Moore is very likely to win, and

28 Nov

there is ONE reason:

The mainstream media.

Look, the Mainstream Media have been horribly corrupt and unreliable. And their attacks (cloaked as “reporting”) are always against one side and one side only. I mean, do you see the MSM going after John Conyers or Al  Franken? No, of course you don’t. Did they go after Al Gore or Bill Clinton? Fat chance. The MSM are widely (and correctly) seen as complete partisan suck-ups and hacks. They are the Grover Dill of the political world. They are simply NOT reliable. They have lost the trust of most rational Americans. They defend those who think like they do and attack the “other.” Most thinking people have come to the realization that they just don’t tell the truth unless it benefits them personally–they very much have a dog in this fight. They are NOT a disinterested third party! In essence, they have no credibility. They are NOT Truth-Tellers.

So when they whinge about Roy Moore, it is easy to both ignore and to want to vote opposite of what they are telling you in order to resist them. It is a way of saying, “Kiss my butt!”At some point Ralphie “breaks” and fights back. And then they run a far-left abortophile against Moore! In ALABAMA! Huh? What freakin’ Einstein thought of THAT? <sheesh!>

Leftist are missing a HUGE and important aspect of this, and it is the very same impulse that landed Trump in the White House in the first place. It is the same impulse that will lead to the Democrats being shellacked in 2018 and 2020, if they are not a whole lot more wise than we have seen so far. It is  the same impulse that led to the Tea Party (crushed under the heel of the Obama IRS boot, if you recall). Yes, there is “a resistance,” but it is on the right, not the Left. And it is rather a silent resistance. The Left is just crying and throwing a tantrum because they didn’t get the lollipop they wanted and they think that if they just hold their collective breath long enough and kick the floor hard enough they will eventually get it. But the Right is far more serious. FAR. Serious as a heart attack. And RINOs also are endangered. Only a great fool thinks that the “mushy middle” is a good and safe place to be right now. We call those people who do, “The Unemployed.”

Leftists are either not aware or are ignoring the fact that people on the Right are pissed. They are mad as Hell and are not going to take it much longer. Trump is not a cause, he is a symptom. And the Left is certainly not addressing this issue with its geriatric old-school Leftism. Nor are the tone-deaf “never Trump” folks who are putatively on the right.

 

Remember about modern journalism:

27 Nov

 

If you trust the MSM, you are a blinken’ fool. Look at all the data, and then decide for yourself what is true. You certainly can’t trust the MSM to give you the truth. We truly live in a post-modern world…

 

So the IRS admitted wrongdoing

27 Nov

and finally settled. The IRS admitted that its conduct was wrong. Good.

This is a HUGE story. In one suit there was a multi-million-dollar settlement.

And yet, have you heard a single word about it from the MSM? You know why you haven’t heard anything about this? Because it was the Obama IRS that was guilty and the MSM are Lefty shills. Gee, I guess there was a “smidgeon” of wrongdoing after all!

Next time you think about it, realize that the MSM absolutely hides stories that are not “Lefty friendly.” You are NOT well-informed by the MSM. The MSM does a double whammy–it simultaneously leaves you totally ignorant while at the same time making you feel that you are not an ignoramus–that you actually do know something. It’s a ruse.

And think about how the MSM would squawk if Trump did something like this! It’s undeniably true that Conservatives are held to a much different, and much higher, standard than Leftists.

But actually, that is, on balance, a good thing. As a result, Conservatives tend to be far more trustworthy in general. They know very well that they will get no quarter from the MSM, and that their behavior has to be beyond reproach or the MSM will hammer them. Yeah, Mike Pence needs his Pence Rule to protect himself as well as others. The only addition I might make is that in today’s climate, I might not go out to dinner alone with anyone at work, regardless of gender.

Your MSM

23 Nov

at work.

Why on earth would any rational person even listen to these fools? This is a complete dumpster fire!

The MSM pretends to give you real information about Trump. But why oh why would anyone believe them? I mean, honestly!

And I am quite certain that this will have a significant impact on the 2018 and 2020 races. A lot of people are getting to the point where they just don’t care what the MSM says. They correctly note that there is just no way to know if it really is true, and the MSM are demonstrably unreliable.

So the NY Times reports X? So what? Why on earth should I believe them? Maybe what they say is true, and maybe it is a lie. Or more likely, it is partially true but the “gist” of the story is a lie.

But honestly, tell me why I should believe them. Tradition?

Uhm, this is

20 Nov

sabotage. THIS is your MSM at work!

If you think you are getting the straight scoop from the MSM, you are a blinkin’ fool!

Here is an extremely big deal, and yet the partisan MSM ignores it. Disgusting!

No wonder Trump just goes around them with Tweets. Good.

Will the sexual assaults (real assaults)

17 Nov

never cease? It really is mind-boggling! Let me be the first to call for Franken’s resignation! Disgusting. And shouldn’t he be legally prosecuted, especially in light of the whole story? I want to see him frog-marched off the Senate floor in handcuffs. He richly deserves it.

And of course, we need to wonder (ha!) how the MSM will cover this story. I bet they will cover it with a pillow, until it stops moving (to quote IowaHawk). That’s a VERY safe bet.

And it’s not like it would be the first time that the MSM has ignored sexual harassment by one of their own (a Democrat). Yeah, if you are a Democrat you can pretty much get away with anything. Here’s a quote:  According to a search of the television database TV Eyes, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC have given zero on-air coverage to Alcon’s arrest. The networks have also not published any stories about Alcon’s scandal on their websites in the past week. Yeah, BIG surprise! It’s honor among thieves.

Franken should resign or be kicked out of the Senate. This is really disgusting! He is a sex offender.

Here is the hypocrisy of the Left that really gets to me: Many on the Left and the self-righteous Right get up on their high horses and lecture about how Republicans should not tolerate Roy Moore because he asked 16-18 year old girls for sexual favors. And yes, that is wrong. But when a girl demurred, he stopped. That is still vulgar and crass. But still, when a girl told Roy Moore “no” he stopped, while I have photographic proof of Franken sexually assaulting a defenseless woman (on top of her other contemporaneous reports of other assaults by him).

But then these very same people defend Al Franken’s clear and obvious sexual ASSAULT on a sleeping woman as well as his other sexual assaults on her! HUH? I think people should not vote for Roy Moore–as soon as the Left forces Franken to resign. I’m just sick of the crap-eating hypocrisy!  Until Franken resigns, let’s give a warm welcome to Senator Roy Moore of Alabama!.

I think we are all sick of this obvious hypocrisy. It is just sickening! Ho-lee crap!

This just made me hope that Moore wins–something I had never felt before. And when he wins, I want him to be a bull in a china shop. I am totally sick of the smarmy and greasy Democrat suck-up-ism. It is truly disgusting. It makes me want to barf.

Remember, Franken was elected in the first place under very fishy circumstances. One commenter noted: As the vote counting was nearing completion, Franken was losing. Amazingly, on multiple occasions no less, a new batch of votes were “found” and the counting continued until Franken was finally ahead. Then no more ballots were discovered, the counting stopped, and Franken declared winner.

Truly a miracle of cosmic proportions! Yeah, whatever…

UPDATE: I just think it is very conceptually duplicitous to whack on Roy Moore while defending Al Franken. I mean, I have no problem with someone saying that Moore’s behavior disqualifies him from being a Senator (whether or not I agree).

But to say that Moore (who actually respected the volition of young women) is worthy of political damnation while Franken (who frankly assaulted women) in just dandy is, to me, the height of hypocrisy.
