Typical journalism in the year of fake news?

12 Dec

So while journalists who produce fake news are still running about producing fake news, and putting an unsourced press release from some subset of CIA agents at the top of the fold on page 1 (claiming that the Russians were involved in all 6,000 state, local and federal elections that the Democrats lost), Will Sommer, a former Washington City Paper columnist and a frequent radio quest, has now been hired to cover campaigns and Congress by

We’re sure he will be objective.

But he may need a good copy editor.

Note the sentence below in his personal email newsletter where he “covers” “right wing” news people:

Exclusive interview with Glenn Greenwald

2 Jul
At 7:20 am on Fox and Friends Tuesday Eric Boling interviews Glenn Greenwald. Bolling had earlier had an exclusive with Lon Snowden. So far Andrew Napolitano, Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Steve Doocey, and maybe Bob Beckel seem to be the only people standing up for the 4th Amendment and against the NSA on TV.  Are there others?

Statists continue to try to shift story from NSA surveillance to what Snowden has for lunch

‘Grand tour of U.S. adversaries’: NSA leaker Snowden leaves Hong Kong by way of Moscow

Michelle Malkin and Twitchy tweeters don’t seem to realize that everything Snowden does and has done shows that Big Government is incompetent to classify millions of secrets, manage millions of employees with security clearances, and keep track of one 29 year old IT guy and his travels.

Everything the national security state priests like General Keith Alexander and the little worm tongued Clapper homunculus and commentators including the fair lady Michelle Malkin and the lovely haired Tucker Carlson have to say on the subject is mainly shit.

That you think Snowden should have “been brave” and taken up these matters in our corrupted, farcical, untrustworthy American justice system is irrelevant.  Even if that were true it is picayune compared to the undebated and hidden expansion of the surveillance state.  And it is a lie to say “we knew” or “Congress knew.”  All we knew is that months ago after a security briefing Senator Rand Paul told us it was shocking the extent of government surveillance of Americans, but it was illegal for him to disclose what he had been told.  Some debate.

(OK only half shit for Michelle and a fourth shit for Tucker, but you don’t eat the gourmet meal when it is served with a dab of shit.  Tucker is almost the only person on TV pointing out that the real story is the NSA not Snowden.)

As I write this I am watching the Clintonian chipmunk and several ruling class flaks burble among themselves on This Week about how Snowden’s flying to Venezuela (which he hasn’t done yet) is ironic because at least “we” treat our serfs better than they do.  Akin to the standard liberal Democrat argument that their fascism is better than evil Republican fascism because they let us serfs give blow jobs and abort a fetus.  (Very convenient “freedoms” for members of the liberal Democrat ruling class, given how they like to treat the help.)

Insomniac TV – Ann Coulter on "RedEye"

3 Mar
Ann Coulter may or may not call Tucker Carlson or Andy Levy pussies on RedEye tonight on Fox News at 11 pm EST.

In other insomniac fare, on SyFy a pre-Hung Thomas Jane battles an Inquisition lead by Marcia Gay Harden in a grocery store, when a government science experiment gone wrong allows arachnoid and insectoid monsters from a Chthulian dimension to enter the Pacific Northwest in The Mist (2007) and half the members of a small town seek shelter in a supermarket (12:30 EST).  Genre fans will notice Sam Witwer, of the North American version of Being Human, as one of Harden’s sacrificial victims, and Laurie Holden of The Walking Dead (in which Witwer also appeared in a single episode).  The Chthulian beasties may remind many libertarians of rent seekers, zombie firms, crony corporatists, and other Obama regime fauna who will not curb their appetites and will eat every last tax serf until civilization ends. (Rebroadcast after midnight.)

At 9:00 pm on SyFy Jodie Foster plays an astronomer who makes first Contact, despite NASA and the federal government attempting to screw it up (saved only by a Howard Hughes/Richard Branson/Space X privately funded project).  The Jodster manages to make out with Matthew McConaughey, but does not have to reveal her private love life to the superior alien civilization.
