The MSM has received this week’s campaign trail talking points, and 2 words are a must

Bias overload

A couple days ago I wrote about an ABC News reporter referring to Beto O’Rourke as a “rock star.” SQUEE!

Here’s another totally objective “”journalist”” (for CNN hacks I use double quotes to signify super-exaggeration) proving that the DNC talking points have been received by the mainstream media:

Trump speaks to a huge, energetic crowd of tens of thousands in Texas and ZERO reporters referred to it as a “rock star” reception. Kamala Harris speaks to about a dozen onlookers in Iowa and she’s like the Beatles after landing at JFK. The country has now overdosed on media bias.

‘Journalism in the Era of Trump’ update: ABC News reporter dubs Beto O’Rourke a ‘rock star’

ABC News’ Paula Faris also interviewed Ted Cruz for “Sunday Morning” segment, but even though Cruz is probably going to destroy Beto O’Rourke in the Texas Senate race early next month, O’Rourke is that one that was dubbed the “rock star” in the state:

But in fairness, maybe Faris is right — O’Rourke was once in a punk band. So, considering the most recent polls, Beto’s far closer to being a “rock star” than the next Texas senator.

Can you imagine a reporter covering one of Trump’s rallies and using 20,000 screaming supporters to call the president a “rock star”? They’d get run out of the “journalism” business, which is now as “fake news” as it’s ever been.

CNN ‘journalism’ — a play in two acts

TOTAL mystery why so many distrust the media

CNN’s Brian Stelter hosts a show called “Reliable Sources” which regularly features Dan Rather as a guest, all while expecting everybody not to laugh at the irony. So, with that in mind, I guess what follows shouldn’t be too surprising. However, this really caught my eye in a “here’s why so many people can’t stand the media” kind of way: This is Stelter less than two years ago complaining about Trump not making himself accessible enough to the media:

And here’s Stelter this month after Trump made himself VERY accessible to the media:

Trump realizes there’s nothing he could do to make the “media” write or say anything positive, so he works around them. Meanwhile, the media keep doing more and more of everything that’s made them so incredibly distrusted by increasing numbers of people — and, even more laughable, the media blames Trump for it.

America: Well, the media can’t possibly sink lower. Media: Hold our beer!

Embarrassing

In case you’re wondering how deep the “media” is willing to drill for anti-Trump admin scoops, they got out the diamond-tipped drill to get this far down:

So much for “teacher/former student privilege.” The media has obviously decided that flat-out embarrassing themselves is the only way to go at this point.

Good luck with that! On Kavanaugh’s first day, lefties continue same protest that failed to stop his confirmation

The Handmaid’s Fail

Brett Kavanaugh’s first day at the Supreme Court saw a bunch of women who are completely free to protest and make fools of themselves all they want pretending to be horribly oppressed by a new Supreme Court justice they don’t like who was nominated by a president they hate:

Yep, it’s the same shtick that didn’t stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation in the first place, but maybe it’ll work this time! This should henceforth be referred to as The Handmaid’s Fail.

That sad cosplay spectacle follows days of lefties embarrassing themselves, their parents and all their ancestors:

Who’s got a weird hat, loud voice, lots of free time and hates Trump & Kavanaugh? THIS guy:

“This is what democracy looks like!”

The U.S. is a Republic, not a democracy, but for the sake of argument, do they know what else democracy looks like?

To sum up the week liberals had…

And then some.

Journalistic malpractice update: Kavanaugh ‘bombshells’ put last shred of media credibility on ice

They can’t stop validating Trump’s media slams

Thanks to Sen. Jeff Flake, the Dems and mainstream media (pardon the redundancy) have an extra week to extend their three-ring circus into a surreal and full-blown clown show. What started as an allegation that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted somebody when he was in school has turned into this embarrassing show of desperation:

And of course you can always count on the rest of the “media” to jump in and help fling crap like that everywhere:

And by the way, the “reporter” who dug up that story the Times published is a card-carrying liberal Kavanaugh hater who said this back in July:

In a statement, the New York Times stood by the story, saying the information she reported was a matter of public record. They just don’t see the problem, do they? And that’s the whole problem. The Times is basically publishing stories that are indistinguishable from DNC press releases and they don’t think that’s an issue.

The MSM just can’t stop helping not only validate Trump’s slams on the press, but beg for them.

Mitch McConnell is right to mercilessly mock the media’s no-shame approach (they’ve gotten even better at it since the election of Trump):

NBC News put yet another nail in the coffin of MSM credibility by interviewing people with claims they can’t — and probably barely even tried — to verify:

If somebody came along with allegations like that against a prominent liberal there’s ZERO chance the person would get interview air time. But Michael Avenatti certainly appreciates the media’s willingness to commit journalistic malpractice.

Confirmed: New York Times editors really need to start reading the New York Times more

Like The Onion but funnier

Ok, so I’ve been laughing at this for about a half hour now:

Wow, that’s almost as funny as Paul Krugman’s prediction about the markets on election night!

The ink is barely dry on the Times’ correction to their attempted hit piece blaming Nikki Haley for spending money that was in fact allocated during the Obama administration:

And by asking for examples of attempts to “confuse, mislead or influence voters” ahead of an election, would that include constant reminders about how the Republican has almost no chance of winning?

Or does publishing an anonymous op-ed written by somebody claiming to be a “senior” Trump admin official making claims that may or may not be total BS count as an attempt to influence voters ahead of an election? Or how about this from just over a month before the 2016 election:

If New York Times editors want to see questionable or false information being spread before an election all they have to do is read the New York Times.

Update:

It gets worse (and by “worse” I mean even more hilarious):

Hillary Clinton: Electoral College should be abolished because I lost, or something

This won’t surprise anybody, but Hillary Clinton has spotted a “constitutional crisis.” What is that “constitutional crisis”? It’s that Hillary Clinton lost the election:

Trump and his cronies do so many despicable things that it can be hard to keep track. I think that may be the point—to confound us, so it’s harder to keep our eye on the ball. The ball, of course, is protecting American democracy. As citizens, that’s our most important charge. And right now, our democracy is in crisis.

I don’t use the word crisis lightly. There are no tanks in the streets. The administration’s malevolence may be constrained on some fronts—for now—by its incompetence. But our democratic institutions and traditions are under siege. We need to do everything we can to fight back. There’s not a moment to lose.

As I see it, there are five main fronts of this assault on our democracy.

No, she’s not still bitter, why do you ask?

One of the things, according to one of the worst presidential candidates in recent memory, that needs to be done to prevent future “assaults on our democracy” is obvious:

And you won’t be surprised to hear that I passionately believe it’s time to abolish the Electoral College.

The Constitution should be changed because a crappy candidate who felt entitled to the job, called half the country “deplorable,” pledged to put coal country out of work and was so certain of victory that she didn’t even go to Wisconsin? How about “no,” Hillary.

No, the media doesn’t exaggerate or make stuff up, why do you ask? Part 4,305: Hurricane ‘journalism’

Hurricane Florence brought with it another opportunity to play “what’s wrong with this video” thanks to a Weather Channel reporter:

The Weather Channel’s explanation is as embarrassing as the video:

“It’s important to note that the two individuals in the background are walking on concrete, and Mike Seidel is trying to maintain his footing on wet grass, after reporting on-air until 1:00 a.m. ET this morning and is undoubtedly exhausted,” the network said.

Science! Except people who are exhausted exaggerate less, not more.

Oh, and keep in mind that these are the same people pushing climate change alarmism, but I’m sure they wouldn’t exaggerate about that stuff. /s

The above video reminded me of this classic:

JOURNALISM!

NY Times correction after spreading BS story about Nikki Haley in record time puts final nail in coffin of MSM credibility

Pathetic and predictable

Thursday night, the New York Times reported that $50,000 was spent on curtains for Nikki Haley’s office at the U.N. and they were put in last year. The Left, naturally, went nuts, which fortunately isn’t much of a stretch for them. But what the Times didn’t point out until well into their story obviously designed to slam Haley, was that the remodeling decision was made and approved in 2016, during the Obama administration. After many hours of hearing about it, the paper made a correction:

But by then it didn’t matter. The BS story had started at the New York Times:

And made its way around the media world in record time:

Pathetic. When the money was allocated, Samantha Power was the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. The Times added Haley for some added Resistance hate clickbait, and got their hand stuck in the “fake news” honey pot.

But remember, NBC News’ Chuck Todd says the reason people distrust the media is because of Fox News. Mainstream media “journalists” are among the least self-aware people on the planet.
