NY Times Reveals Its Anti-Trump Mission

See the source image

Plan A, “Russian Collusion,” went totally belly-up, so Democrats have moved on to Plan B–“Call Everybody Racists Especially Trump.” But don’t take my word for it.

In a speech to New York Times employees, a speech that got leaked out when it wasn’t supposed to, executive editor Dan Baquet called for a “coverage shift” from Russian Collusion to Trump Racism (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/new-york-times-chief-outlines-coverage-shift-from-trump-russia-to-trump-racism). “We built our newsroom to cover one story (Collusion),” the editor prattled. “Now we have to regroup… to take on a different story”–and the “new story” will be “race.”

It’s so flamin’ obvious.

Nobody wants to be a “racist.” Ooh! But if you voted for President Donald Trump, or support him in any way… well, then you are a racist! Gee, that’s awful… What can I do?

Instant absolution is at hand! All you have to do is vote for Democrats, and you are instantaneously cleansed of the sin of racism. Who knew it could be so easy?

It’s beginning to sound like some of that stuff that Martin Luther had to deal with. Indulgences for sale. Price, one vote.

These people make me ashamed I ever was a journalist.


‘Noozies Wonder, “Why Don’t They Love Us Anymore?”‘ (2016)

It was never the way he said it was.

Liberal politicians get nostalgic for the old days when there was only the network nooze on three or four stations and they all said the same thing–and Walter Cronkite told us, “That’s the way it is.”

Only that wasn’t the way it was. It was just the way he said it was.

And now the noozies are whining that we don’t love them anymore.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/10/27/noozies-wonder-why-dont-they-love-us-anymore/

Why is it so hard for them to understand that we find it very hard, if not impossible, to love stuffed shirts who sneer at us, mock our religion, call us biggits and Nazis when we fail to elect their favorite liberals, and whenever they’re confronted over trying to slip us fake news, they double down on it? They can’t see that those things really bug us?

They long to go back to the days when they owned “the way it is” and nobody ever knew any different.

The free and independent press that sold itself into slavery.


My Newswithviews Column, July 25 (‘Our Racist, Sexist Moon Landing’)

See the source image

They really couldn’t have fit a couple of lesbians into that LEM?

Are you getting as tired of this race crap as I am?

Of one blood God made all the nations of the earth (Acts 17:26); but of course leftists are trying to un-make God’s creation. And trying to wipe out our history.

Our Racist, Sexist Moon Landing

If you “remember” things that never happened, you’re probably crazy. And if you can’t remember things at all, you have amnesia. Either way suits Democrats just fine.


Libs: Don’t Celebrate ‘Racist’ Moon Landing

They’re liberals. They hate the flag, too.

This is one of the noozy bits that found me under the bed this weekend. You just can’t hide from this stuff.

Wapo And NYT Team Up To Declare Apollo Moon Landing Racist And Sexist

Yes, the big, big stupid nooze media, the Washington Post and the New York Times, joined together in deploring the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, suggesting that it… well, it doesn’t count! Three white men on the spacecraft, no trannies, no gays, no disabled persons, no women of color (how much room do they think there was in that landing module?)–so it doesn’t count.

Washington Post: “The culture that put men on the moon was intense, fun, family-unfriendly, and mostly white and male.”

New York Times: “The Apollo program was designed by men, for men.”

Whoa, back up? “Family-unfriendly”? This from the same people who want to abort babies as they’re being born? Who want to turn all the girls into fake boys and all the boys into fake girls?

And I could’ve sworn that when those three guys landed on the moon and walked on it, not only did all America stand up and cheer, but a pretty good chunk of the world cheered with us.

“No! You can’t cheer because the astronauts are white and you’re not!”

What kind of wicked nonsense is that?

In that it tirelessly labors to divide people into groups based on external characteristics, and to stir up these groups to hate and fear each other, liberalism is an altogether satanic enterprise and must be defeated and destroyed. Forever.

If only so we can go back to celebrating the three guys who landed on the moon.


Beware! Robot Can Generate Fake News

See the source image

Their next invention: a robot that lets the air our of your tires and runs away

This has got to be the most superfluous invention of them all–an “Artificial Intelligence” (AI) system that can detect fake nooze created by other artificial intelligence systems… and also create fake nooze itself (https://futurism.com/ai-generates-fake-news).

Do they really think CNN needs any help in whipping up fake nooze?

Scientists at the University of Washington have programmed computers to do what so-called “real journalists” are already doing every day–creating and airing stories that simply aren’t true. Trump’s a Russian agent. Jussie Smollet was attacked by white supremacists. Covington High School kids picked on some poor old Native American war hero. Those stories were all fake nooze, not a word of truth in them: but each in its turn dominated the nooze cycle.

If there was ever anything that didn’t need inventing, it’s got to be a machine that tells lies.


’60 Minutes’ Caught Cheating

I heard about this on the radio this morning, on Mark Simone’s show on WOR–our free and independent press, 60 Minutes in this example, tampered with the video to make Steve Bannon, then an adviser to President Donald Trump, look bad.

In the words of whistleblower Peter Duke, “By subtly tweaking the color of the video, they made him look like a bleary-eyed drunk.” And here’s the whole thing:

By way of demonstration, Duke does the same thing to a video of Charlie Rose–and gets the same result.

Can we believe anything we see or hear from the nooze media anymore? Do they never not cheat?

And this was 60 Minutes, supposedly the gold standard of TV investigative journalism. Just imagine what CNN and MSNBC get up to.

On the same show, Bill O’Reilly said the nooze business–newspapers, magazines, and cable TV nooze shows–is imploding economically and looking down the barrel of extinction: they’re being put out of business by the Internet and social media. Not that the social media have displayed any great regard for truth and fair dealing. O’Reilly says the noozies have decided that, with their livelihoods endangered by the imminent collapse of their business, the only way they can keep working is to take sides in the political wars. Out the window goes anything that would traditionally be recognized as journalism, to be replaced by unrestrained partisanship. And cheating. And lies.

A free and believable press is indispensable to America as a free republic. How are citizens supposed to make informed and rational choices if they have no reliable source of information on public affairs?

Someone really has to see to this.

As far back as 2016, twaddlers in the nooze media had begun to wonder why regular people didn’t like or trust them anymore. Like it’s some big mystery!

https://leeduigon.com/2016/10/27/noozies-wonder-why-dont-they-love-us-anymore/

Dudes, we don’t love you anymore because you despise us and keep trying to saddle us with Democrat masters who want to wreck our country, and we don’t trust you anymore because you never, never tell the truth on purpose.

Other than that, you’re swell.


The Best Time to Stifle Freedom of the Press… Is Here

See the source image

Let’s say you’re a power-drunk government official who wants to suppress a news story that might embarrass the government and call your position into question.

Has there ever been a better time for doing that, than this?

Recently Australian police, armed with warrants, raided the offices of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (Australia’s equivalent of PBS), seizing files and computers, looking for evidence that an editor and two reporters broke some law when they reported that in 2017, some Australian soldiers in Afghanistan killed unarmed civilians (https://www.lmtonline.com/news/article/Australian-police-raid-public-broadcaster-seize-13938095.php). Someone, it seems, wants to track down whoever were the sources for that story and make them sorry for it.

We would not like to see this happen in America. Freedom of the press is enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution, and by long tradition.

Our problem is that our “free and independent press” has abused its freedom and turned itself into a 24/7/365 shill for the Democrat Party. Time and again we catch them making up stories, embellishing stories, leaving things out, putting things in–and then having to walk it all backwards once it’s been demonstrated that those stories aren’t true. Think Jussie Smollet, the Covington kids, and “Trump’s a Russian agent!”–all crapola. All designed to help the Far Left Crazy take over the country.

Consequently, tens of millions of Americans don’t trust the mainstream nooze media to tell the truth about anything–only because they’ve been caught lying so many times. All they ever do, anymore, is to attack Donald Trump and anyone who stands with him. All they want to do is drive the president out of office. Because their candidate, Hillary Clinton, didn’t win in 2016. Hence more than two years of wall-to-wall “Russian collusion” coverage… which turned out to be false. Even now they haven’t let it drop.

So who’s going to shed a tear if government agents raid, say, the Washington Post’s editorial offices? Who’s going to believe the New York Times, if their offices get raided?

A free press is a vital component of a free republic. But the press in our country has all but pissed away its freedom–voluntarily, to gain a political end. The government didn’t turn them into Pravda. They turned themselves into Pravda.

At this point you might want to ask me, “Well, what do we do about it? How do we fix the problem? How do we get our free press back?”

I think the noozies have to fix it themselves–and soon.


Journalism: A Travesty (Part 2)

See the source image

Once upon a time there was this image of the reporter as a hard-headed, skeptical, show-me type. Those women who were the infantry of local journalism in the 1970s–they could see through a brick wall; and what they saw, they wrote.

I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry. I was a newspaperman: reporter and editor. And I’m ashamed of what my former profession, once an honorable profession, has become.

The hard-headed, skeptical reporter is extinct. Oh, there are cryptozoological reports about isolated members of the species surviving in out-of-the-way places in the hinterland; but you won’t see them unless you look real hard.

No one outdoes today’s free and independent press when it comes to believing pure crapola and pushing it on the public. A man gets his junk chopped off, shoots up with female hormones, and says he’s a “woman”; and every single noozie in the Western world calls this wacko “she” and “her” and makes like the guy really is a woman now–and piles on anyone who says different. Could anything be more soft-headed, more credulous? There would be no “transgender” without the nooze media.

Once upon a time reporters didn’t just pass along the Far Left talking points. Once upon a time reporters questioned what they were told, and kept on asking questions till they got the truth. (Most of them, at least–The New York Times parted company with truth quite a few years ago.) But today noozies never question anything, no matter how preposterous, said by any Democrat.

That’s why they keep banging the drum for Russian Collusion, never mind there wasn’t any. It’s “the narrative.” It serves the Democrat Party. So the noozies have it on the menu every day.

Okay, sure–it’s true that the TV nooze networks, even that far back, were about as straight as corkscrews. Ditto the major print media. Democrats are nostalgic for those days when Walter Cronkite spun his spiel and the whole country believed him because there was no meaningful competition. We thank God for His providence: the Internet has put an end to that, let Google and Facebook try as they will to establish themselves as an information monopoly. There always have been and always will be corrupt, dishonest news media.

But there certainly used to be more honesty in the news than there is now. And don’t tell me any different, because I was there.


Journalism: a Travesty

See the source image

I’m ashamed that I was once a “journalist,” a newspaper reporter and editor, back in the day. To be sure, in the 1970s it was still an honorable profession in which we who practiced it took pride. Things that are routinely done today, and called “journalism,” would have once moved real reporters to contempt. We would have laughed off the press table anybody who behaved like that. But nobody did.

Well, that’s all changed.

Poynter, an “institute” funded by the Dark Lord, George Soros, supposedly for “training writers and reporters,” has listed 29 top conservative news providers as “unreliable” and “un-news” (https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/techwatch/corinne-weaver/2019/05/02/journalism-institute-poynter-tries-blacklist-29). The list was compiled by some commie who works for the Far Left hate group, Southern Poverty Law Center. One might almost think the whole thing was a joke.

But of course the newest thing in journalism, the newest technique, is to write up the story before you do the interviews, before you see the video, before you have any of the information–because as long as the story fits the “narrative”–modern-day nooze-talk for big fat lie–you’ve done your job.

This is what happened in two notoriously shameful examples of narrative journalism–the Covington High School kids and the Jussie Smollett case. In both, the alleged journalists in the nooze media–along with Democrat politicians and assorted Hollywood losers–dove in headfirst: only to discover, quite soon afterward, that the story didn’t happen like the way they were reporting it. They didn’t care.

Once upon a time, even reporters who were total wastes of space in their personal lives still tried to live up to standards–standards like accuracy, thoroughness, truth-telling, fair play, that simply don’t exist anymore.

The result is a mainstream nooze media that’s unworthy of our trust: we know they’re lying to us. I call it the Walter Duranty school of journalism, after the New York Times reporter who won a Pulitzer for being Josef Stalin’s cheerleader and public relations agent.

Remember Dan Rather and his “fake but accurate” story of George W. Bush and the National Guard? Even as late as 2004, a big nooze gasbag like Rather could (and did!) actually lose his job for bamboozling the public and getting caught. That was only 15 years ago!

The speed with which our mainstream “journalism” has deteriorated is a frightening thing to contemplate.
