Not Smart

In a recent post, I noted that the main stream media has begun to characterize itself as a victim under attack by Donald Trump. According to the trained hamsters, Trump is berating them for no reason whatsoever.

They, of course, have been perfectly objective in their coverage of all things Trump. Not. They de-emphasize the major accomplishments of the Trump administration (e.g., high GDP and low, low unemployment, tax breaks for the middle class, etc.) because they have to give Amarosa 24-7 coverage. They have purposely ignored the weaponization (against Trump) of major government agencies (think FBI, CIA, IRS) by the Obama administration because inveterate liars like James Clapper of James Comey tell us it isn't true. They use a double standard to cover malfeasance or ethical laps by Republicans and Democrats, breathlessly reporting alleged minor wrong-doing in a Trump charity while refusing to even acknowledge allegations of massive wrongdoing in a Clinton-related charity. They treat extremist groups on both the right and left differently; for example, this week's physical attacks by left-wing Antifa thugs in Charlottesville on their own media brethren (NBC reporters) were downplayed while a tiny demonstration (about 20 people) by alt-right extremists in Washington garnered hours of coverage. And of course, they are convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that Russian collusion did occur and that Trump was involved, even though the only hard evidence of Russian collusion occurred when Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid for and colluded with Russian sources to vilify Trump by creating the infamous phony dossier.

And now we learn that the left-leaning Boston Globe is coordinating anti-Trump editorials by 100 newspapers across the nation set to criticize Trump for attacking the media. After all, think of all the balanced and objective Administration-related journalism offered by the Globe and others over the past two years. The poor trained hamsters have been violated and attacked by a meanie president and their delicate feelings have been crushed. Gosh, CNN's Jim Acosta felt "unsafe" at a Trump rally.

The Boston Globe coordinated attack caused @walterkern to tweet:
Angered by Trump's charge that it feigns independence while acting as a unified coordinated attack machine, the press responds with a coordinated unified attack on Trump. Smart.
Actually, no. Not smart, but biased and unprofessional, yes.


The trained hamsters love to vilify Devin Nunes, the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and the person who has embarrassed them repeatedly by uncovering critical information about the above mentioned scandal that normally would have been reported by the media (except it embarrassed their masters, the Dems).

It is worth noting that Nunes’ and others’ work doing real congressional oversight has deeply embarassed the media. Without congressional oversight, the country would not know:
  • That Clinton and the DNC secretly funded Fusion GPS’s dossier.
  • That Trump affiliates were wiretapped during the campaign.
  • That a $50 million public relations operation is ongoing to feed Russia stories to the media and government even now.
  • That the FBI is working with this group running the PR operation.
  • That Bruce Ohr’s wife worked for Fusion GPS.
  • That top officials were leaking to CNN.
  • That the unverified dossier was used to justify FISA warrant applications.
  • That no official intelligence was used in Peter Strzok’s electronic communication launching the investigation.
And much, much more. Yes, Nunes makes the media’s role in this story look just terrible. Still, their derangement toward him is getting ridiculous.
The WaPo's slogan is "Democracy Dies in Darkness." Heh. Looks like the WaPo "journalists" don't mind darkness as long as their Democratic friends can hide their scandalous wrongdoing in the shadows.
