NYTimes Believed Him?!

Death of the Media

“A Strong Man for Troubled Times”

We’re using Nate Silver’s tweet to illustrate The NYTimes’ deranged commitment to Both Sides journalism.  Anyone who has paid even the slightest attention knows that racism is a feature and not a bug of our Imperial Wizard Donald Trump’s prznintcy, and that white supremacy is his only domestic policy (other than grifting).

Either that or they credulously believed his Adderall-fueled telepropaganda (see what I did there?) speech yesterday, despite testimony from pipe bombers (now convicted, sentenced, and part of documented public record!) and assorted domestic white nationalist terrorists have all but named him as an inspiration.

Also from the NYTimes:

“President Trump’s re-election campaign has harnessed Facebook advertising to push the idea of an ‘invasion’ at the southern border, amplifying the fear-inducing language about immigrants that he has also voiced at campaign rallies and on Twitter.

“Since January, Mr. Trump’s re-election campaign has posted more than 2,000 ads on Facebook that include the word ‘invasion’ — part of a barrage of advertising focused on immigration, a dominant theme of his re-election messaging. A review of Mr. Trump’s tweets also found repeated references to an ‘invasion,’ while his 2016 campaign advertising heavily featured dark warnings about immigrants breaching America’s borders.”

So, which is it, NYTimes? You already are reporting on the racist rhetoric.

I don’t know if outrage brought about the changed headlines (Twitter is full of outrage on everything, so cause and effect are nearly impossible to discern), but sooner or later Maggie Haberman is going to officially get the Judith Miller award.

Just sayin:

    The “mainstream” media contorts itself into a Mobius pretzel to avoid condemning the Treason Party (fka GOP)

    The “mainstream” media is owned by rich people.

    Many of its higher-ranking employees are also rich people.

    The Treason Party consistently gives big, fat, huge, enormous, gigantic, ginormous, horse-choking, elephant-choking, brontosaur-choking, budget-annihilating tax cuts to rich people.

    What does Occam’s Razor tell us about this situation?

      Billionaires paying millionaires to use fear and anger to convince the white middle and working classes that their failures are not a by-product of the parasitic, inbred wealthy’s sociopathy, but are caused by driven, uppity women and minorities trying to make a life for themselves.

    Something tells me that the Sulzberger’s are on the phones currently with David F*cking Brooks’ assistant/concubine/2nd wife demanding a ‘column’ be written about the virtues of proper language and decorum in a just society…
