Dear lying media…

…if you’re the least bit curious about why most Americans find you a corrupt,  slimy lot undeserving of the protections which our Constitution affords you,  you might try telling  the truth  about the recent shooting in Fresno.   You  substituted “God is great!” for the shooter’s shouted words of  “Allahu Akbar!”,  knowing full well that your deliberate omission of the Arabic words was misleading at best.   Of course,  CNN  simply ignored the inconvenient story altogether,  lest it interfere with its narrative of mistreated and misunderstood peaceful Muslims.

Or you could have National Public Radio  stop peddling  the endlessly repeated lie that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms.   It does not,  but it does provide referrals for that and most of the other procedures it claims to offer.   The fact that Barack Obama helped spread the falsehoods during his presidency does not serve to make them true.

Of course,  the Fresno police haven’t  much clarified  the matter by declaring this a hate crime based on race because the killer of four was black and all the victims were white.  Can we say  “terrorism”  boys and girls?

Panties in a wad…

with one comment

That’s the reaction of  “objective journalists”  at  the mere rumor  that the conservative Koch brothers might actually buy the failing Tribune newspaper empire.   MSM’s stated objection is that the Kochs have no newspaper experience,  so apparently they’d rather continue being run by a newspaperman who’s going to cut their jobs than by a businessman likely to put someone in who’ll save them.

The irony is that they actually believe they’re standing on principle,  which should give you a clue as to why there are so few true journalists left in the media world today.
