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.


Plan B: Impeach!

Democrats are fit to be tied, the witch-hunt having come up empty, the Mueller probe having utterly failed to find any evidence at all of “collusion” between Donald Trump’s campaign and “the Russians.” Wailing and gnashing of teeth.

But the Washington D.C. brain trust never runs out of ideas, and there’s already a new one sweeping up and down the aisles of Congress.

“We need a special prosecutor to investigate Trump’s non-collusion with the Russians!” This is a Democrat operative speaking, and our source is unimpeachable. “If he did not collude with the Russians, we can impeach him for that!”

Rep. Pookie Cholera (D-Mordor), vice-chair of the House Committee on Impeaching the &%$#&@ [lengthy list of expletives deleted], described the Mueller report as “a two-year cover-up, they planned to cheat us all along! We should have stuck to our motto: First punish, then investigate!”

“We’ve got him now!” exulted Sen. Albert Ringworm (D-Alternative Universe). “If he colluded with the Russians, that’s a crime. If he didn’t collude with the Russians, that’s a crime, too! One way or another, we’ve got him!”

Who here thinks I’m joking?


Mueller: ’86 World Series was ‘Collusion’

Well, we’re at the doctor’s, doing our do-over; but that doesn’t mean I can’t share a hot news flash with you.

Special Prosecutor-Witchfinder Robert Mueller, we learn from a thoroughly unreliable source, will now probe the 1986 World Series for evidence of “collusion” between Donald Trump (not president then, just a bad rich guy in New York) and The Russians.

The New York Mets defeated the Boston Red Sox in the series when Sox first baseman Bill Bucker made a crucial error in Game 6.

But now, according to an assistant substitute groundskeeper who is being offered U.S. citizenship and a lot of dates with supermodels in return for his testimony, and life imprisonment if he doesn’t sing, Trump and The Russians arranged for Mookie Wilson’s batted ball to take a tricky bounce.

“I’ll get that sonofab**** out of office if it’s the last thing I do!” Mueller confided to his master, Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer. “We can’t allow grubby stinking little voters to decide who gets elected president!”
