Supposedly, not a CNN opinion piece: This is how CNN introduced their “news report” about Trump achieving the 1,237 delegate votes needed to secure the nomination, on Wednesday May 26, 2016:
If you think CNN was using the occasion to ever so delicately imply Donald Trump is “OVER THE TOP” with all his egregiously inaccurate and tendentious wordplay, you’re obviously wrong, since if you ever watch CNN, they clearly abhor inaccurate and tendentious wordplay. They bitch about Trump doing it all day long, and if you’re paying attention, among other Trumpian things which are ruinous to America and the American way of life, this wordplay apparently also forces people who are otherwise upstanding citizens (well OK, a great many illegal aliens too) who want America to be a giant “safe space” and want world peace ‘n stuff (and basically mostly just smoke pot) — to violently protest outside of Trump rallies, smashing car windows and throwing rocks at cops on horses.
Yeah, no. It’s just who says it that matters to these people. They, as news reporters, can be the tendentious wordsmiths any damn time they please. Republicans cannot. Got it? Now you’re thinkin’ like a liberal!
After CNN themselves finished being over the top or “climaxing,” as you might say if you, too, were as unserious as them, Wolf and his PAC smoked a cigarette, pulled their big boy pants up, and then had to get on with pretending to be objective reporters, which is a task so not puerile (#boring!). So, using that same picture of Trump, a far more odious banner for them: “DONALD TRUMP CAPTURES THE GOP NOMINATION” more accurately described the actual news.
And then those ever so sober and never over-the-top journalists naturally went on, and on, discussing Trump’s words, and his honesty, and how important words and honesty and transparency are, these days.
Climate change and the environment are the only things in which Americans favor the Democrats in the most recent Pew Research poll.
And most of the rest of their substantial poll also bodes very poorly for Democrats.
So in the coming weeks expect some big broadcast specials and multi-week in-depth analyses on all the mainstream media about, oh I don’t know, say climate change and the environment.
It’s shocking how much media attention has focussed on …. no let me start again. It’s totally predictable and boring how the media is wall-to-wall reporting on the supposedly universal outrage over Donald Trump’s Muslim moratorium blather. Most of the “news” “reporting” has been done sneeringly, from way, way up upon a very high horse, in the most smug, […]
Sure, but then this also makes sense: And if women can serve as combat Marines, there is no longer any reason for gender-segregated school sports teams. https://t.co/0pxmZulQgs — David Burge (@iowahawkblog) December 3, 2015
Despite Barack Obama threatening to veto it, 47 of Obama’s 188 fellow Democrats voted to support the refugee bill yesterday, no doubt because their constituents supported it. Along with the Republican congressmen, that means representatives of the vast majority of America supported it. That literally means the bill reflects a mainstream sentiment, and suggests the measures were not […]
The media’a hypocrisy is just as alive and well down south. If Hillary Clinton were a Republican, the media would be questioning her incessantly about this, for weeks on end, demanding she apologize for laughing it off and for not publicly denigrating the remark and the person – a man – who said it. Voter […]
After years of research and extensive field testing, the Okanagan’s own GMO apple is going to the big leagues. Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are routinely attacked by urban organic activists in spite of the fact that not a single ailment has ever been linked to this technology. And now, as a testament to the baselessness of such attacks, […]
We must remember that Democrats are not like normal people. In their world, Barack Obama is a brilliant, inspiring speaker and Joe Biden should be trusted with scissors. It is within this context that someone like Hillary Clinton, a canker sore of a public figure, is considered a natural, even inevitable, leader. Notwithstanding Mrs. Clinton’s […]
If CNN is going to chyron "Muslim Hero," why not "Muslim Terrorists?" — John Nolte (@NolteNC) January 12, 2015
You know how you can tell when the liberal media is so liberal they don’t even know how liberal they are? When liberal news anchors at a major national news network report with utter contempt for a politician, in a manner in which they believe everyone in the room agrees with them. Enter CNN’s Carol […]
Today in scientific proof that even the alarmists don’t believe in their own “man-made global warming” and specifically its disastrously rising sea level theories, a headline in the Washington Post: This new mapping technology will show whether global warming could drown your town “Drown your town!” Wow! Sadly for the global warming alarmists and professional freak-out artists, this […]
There is a double indignity to being on the receiving end of a bad lie. The insult of being served with obvious dishonesty is compounded by the liar’s presumption that you are stupid enough to swallow it. Claims by the Internal Revenue Service that they’ve “lost” emails from Lois Lerner and a half-dozen other employees […]
The IRS hearings today are revealing a lot more about the IRS, Democrats, and big government, than the IRS, Democrats, and big government might have wanted. IRS hearings today: The IRS has “model T”-era computers, according to the Commissioner, Mr. Koskinen. Which is a claim he made as a way to defend the IRS “losing” […]
The sometimes-snarky headlines that I have been generating here (and for Canadians, at ProudToBeCanadian.ca) for the past month or so seem to be going over pretty well, so I’ve moved them to a new site, NewsQuips.com: (and NewsQuips.ca for Canadian headlines). Also, I’ve decided to start accepting opinion columns from the public for publication at this […]
Obama’s VA Secretary Shinseki resigns; Obama’s spokesmodel Jay Carney resigns. Shinseki resigns – Obama claims that he’s accepting Shinseki’s resignation “because he would be a distraction.” (THAT’s why?) – Claims the problem “predates his presidency” (AKA blame Bush). Thinks that excuses him from responsibility, after campaigning in 2008 on being the guy who could fix […]
