All Putin all the time. Someone needs a life.

The MSM has crashed and burned since Trump became the candidate, and has only gotten worse since. When you have the MSM's own Brian Williams(!) talking about fake news, and he's one of their poster boys for fake news, you know the jig is up.

Not long ago the lie about Trump supporters booing John Glenn would still be circulating around the world, but the MSM got called and quickly backtracked. It wasn't the MSM, let us call them the "reputables", that made the reporter fess up.

It was these "reputables" that beat 'hands up, don't shoot' to death.


Thanks from Generaloberst

Yes I have.

Now think about it. We're guaranteed trial by a jury of our peers....

Or what George Carlin said: Think about how dumb the average person is, and then consider that half the population is dumber than that.

Do you, RNG? Do you realize the irony of your statement?

Another of the "reputables" handiwork, one week after the election. The old "knife fight" line.

Imagine being judged by people too stupid to get out of jury duty. I was going to try and get out of it but the second space shuttle burned up the day before and felt it my patriotic duty.

In the words of excalibur, "Look! A squirrel!!"

"Knife fight" is a metaphor. Is using it a violation of right-wing political correctness? The inner discord is well known. Ms. Conway took it public, very public.

Would it have been more "reputable" for the media to have ignored her? Is that what you're saying?
Thanks from Twisted Sister

I have been in three knife fights and came out on top but nobody got cut. The phrase Knife Fight makes me tense and wary.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
It's not preposterous. These propagandists are a tool of the evil that must be destroyed. Even if they tell truth, it is only because the truth is profitable. In the rare instances they tell the truth it is because they are enslaved by the god of ratings and of backroom deals, of money and power. Some days Fox is right, some days it's wrong. Same goes for CNN. Why? Because the truth is irrelevant. Put before them a mundane truth and a lie that shoots the ratings through the roof and they will pick the latter every time.

Journalism is a dead career path. Even if you have good intentions you are ultimately a drone in the media machine. Eat your TV dinner and remember, we're fair and balanced. Ignore the fact that any institution truly fair and balanced wouldn't need to spend millions of dollars on a PR campaign to convince you of that. Their everyday actions would speak that motto for itself. It is only BECAUSE people no longer believe the lies of the lugenpresse that they clamor all the more about fake news and truth, when never once have they ever cared about that before. Generations of brainwashed fools no longer.
Thanks from Generaloberst and Sabcat
