I have to wonder, will our fine media betters ever get tired of aiding and abetting the destruction of our nation? I mean, I know they like to see themselves as our paladins, but once they start losing their jobs, health-care and pensions, will they look around and wonder if they should do their actual jobs and not the sycophantic one they’re doing now?
They lie and distort so much it’s ridiculous.
I watched a few minutes of some Foxnews panel earlier and one woman, from the Hill I think, said that MSNBC was mostly partisan, except for middle of the road types like Andrea Mitchell.
That’s when I changed the channel. I don’t really like my crappy TV, but I don’t want to throw stuff through it until I have a new one.
Andrea fucking Mitchell. The woman who said, “Everybody knows Joe Wilson’s wife is in the CIA, he tells everybody in town” and at the beginning of that whole bullshit deal and then never said anything like that again, obviously in the hopes that somehow Fitzmas would be Cheney frog-marched into jail. Fucking lying hag of shit.
Case in point, from the puppy blender linked story above,
If you were a resident in the state with the nation’s highest poverty rate, wouldn’t you think you’d be aware of that fact? – …
But here in California, where the incompetence of the media can scarcely be exaggerated, almost nobody is aware that the Golden State is no. 1 in economic misery. -
Get that? They’re refusing to report exactly how boned CA is because they prefer Democrat rule to honesty.
I have seen pack journalism my entire professional life. But I have never seen anything like the last few years out of Sacramento. -
Change that to DC and it’s just as true.
I used to call them the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. because they were obviously into group-think, but they at least pretended to cover stuff bad for Dems.I mean, they usually slanted the story, blaming the GOP somehow (It’s all about sex!!!!!), but they still covered the story. Now, they only cover how mean the GOP is without covering the story that prompted them to defend their chosen political party.
They got progressively worse in the Bush years and then went full Minitrue for Obama’s coronation.
So will they ever stop sucking Democratic dick? Is it possible? I mean, they’ve been so smugly self-esteemful for so many years that I don’t know if they can ever admit, especially to themselves, how stupid, petty and partisan they’ve been.
But will they start to cover stories differently? Or will I be cooking ‘journalists’ over my book-fire before I cook the dog?
