The new "plastic turkey"

See if you can spot it in the first few paragraphs of this lazy Reuters reporter's article on our skinny but tough (BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!) president.

The unintentional irony is so fucking delicious that I just can't believe it.

(Oh, and this came from Excitable Andi's place linking to a lefty blog, so enjoy that, too.)

No surprise here: Media hides NHS horror stories from the public

Some dude at Real Clear Politics notes the media has done a complete blackout on NHS horror stories, and sites a couple, I know we've covered the main one he links in our FAIL Britannia series.  It's of course not surprising that the media does this.  It's also not surprising that the GOP is too stupid or pussy to force the issue into the public.  They ought to be on every Sunday talk show, any TV spot, calling press conferences, and using these stories to force the issue.  Start reading news stories, verbatim, if a media hack tries to stop 'em, show 'em your pimphand is way strong, then finish the article.  GOP.com should have a page with an endless list of links of NHS and Canadian health care horror stories, and be ready to links to caches or maintain caches themselves.  That's how it should be done, but it won't be.  Because the GOP is full of dullards and sissies.

Look in the mirror

Where to even fucking start?

What's most distinctive about the American press is not its freedom but its century-old tradition of independence—that it serves the public interest rather than those of parties, persuasions, or pressure groups. Media independence is a 20th-century innovation that has never fully taken root in many other countries that do have a free press. The Australian-British-continental model of politicized media that Murdoch has applied at Fox is un-American, so much so that he has little choice but go on denying what he's doing as he does it. For Murdoch, Ailes, and company, "fair and balanced" is a necessary lie. To admit that their coverage is slanted by design would violate the American understanding of the media's role in democracy and our idea of what constitutes fair play. But it's a demonstrable deceit that no longer deserves equal time.
There is a kind of willful blindness among these MSM jagoffs that is just incredible. Just marvel at that paragraph for a moment. It was written by a guy, who, we're told at the end of the piece, is the author of The Bush Tragedy. Which is a truly fair and balanced look at our last president, I'm sure.


I'll forgo the history lesson that Weisberg is obviously ignoring here in order to point out that his colleagues have been carrying water for the Democrat party for decades now. Oh, I'm sure he'd deny that, seeing as how he wouldn't dare to participate in a "politicized media" of the "Australian-British-continental" sort that he scorns, but here's the thing, Jacob...

Conduct an informal poll of your co-workers there at Newsweek. Ask them who they voted for last November. Or in November, 2004. Or in November, 2000. Or...you get the idea.

No, you don't? Why am I not the least bit surprised?

Good interview...

...with Andrew Breitbart in the WSJ:

Mr. Breitbart claims victory, and in extravagant terms: "At every step of the way, we were correct. At every step of the way, the mainstream media took the lies of Acorn. At every step of the way, the mainstream media attempted to cover up for Acorn. . . . If they think that Acorn or the Democratic Party or the NEA or the Office of Public Engagement is the primary target, they couldn't be more wrong. It is the Democrat-media complex. It is the mainstream media. No jury would need more evidence at this point. The Clark Hoyts of the world should just put their pens down and retire right now and walk away. They lost."
I'd tell you to read the whole thing, but I realize that I ain't the boss of you.

Fuck You, CNN!

Fuck you and your corpse sodomizing goatse practitioners with a shop vac loaded with glass bits that alternates between suck and blow. Fuck you for waiting until after Rush Limbaugh was dropped by the potential Rams ownership group to retract your fucking lies. And fuck you for trying to claim you are nothing more than kneepad wearing Obama swallowing assfisters.

This is why I hate the media. They fucking think they are above the law and can retreat back to retractions and claims of "sloppying editing" when called out for their mendacity. So die from a snake bite to your cock, all of you. And spread the disease to your coworkers.

Quote of the Day: Digging

The Quote of the Day is from E.J. Dionne, who said this on today's Meet the Press:

When you are in a hole economically, you need to dig out. That's a time when you need government.

My response:

Other Meet the Press runners up for Quote of the Day below the fold, mostly Rachel Maddow getting a well-deserved slap-down...

Okay, I'm impressed

I am not a huge Glenn Beck fan, I don't dislike him, I just have my reservations regarding him, and did so before anyone knew who the fuck he was.  Nonetheless, beating your competitors combined for a month solid, and for almost a week's worth of days doubling them is pretty damned impressive.  Now I just gotta figure out how to do that here...

ObamaTo The Press: The Envelope Is On The Dresser

Good grief. I love mocking the media over something such as this, considering how they helped shill shamelessly for The One.

The New York Times reports today White House officials told congressional leaders they opposed the legislation pending in the Senate Judiciary Committee that would shield reporters from jail time for failing to reveal sources. The Times cites "several people involved with the negotiations."

It adds that the administration sent to Congress "sweeping revisions" to the bill that "would significantly weaken its protections against forcing reporters to testify."

The current form has provisions requiring prosecutors to "exhaust other methods for finding the source of the information before subpoenaing a reporter, and would balance investigators' interests with 'the public interest in gathering news and maintaining the free flow of information.'"

But under the administration's proposal, those procedures would not apply to leaks of a matter deemed to cause "significant" harm to national security, the Times reported.
