The boob tube

Bimbo news is what I call the babes who anchor Fox and CNN and the other alphabet stations. It finally dawned on me, when I began to see them (in the exercise room at the J; I never watch tv anywhere else, though sometimes see YouTube clips) wearing ever lower-cut blouses.

Pretty revealing. In fact, the very definition of the boob tube. Ha!

Facebook: Don’t mention Niger!

“The word police” isn’t such a joke line anymore.

“The people in charge believe they have found a loophole. They have outsourced policing speech to private companies, who can claim to be enforcing terms of service as private companies. Under the current arrangements, FaceBorg can ban any mention of the country Niger, even though it is perfectly legal to yell ‘Niger!’ in a crowded theater.”

If Charlottesville were reversed…

Another in our continuing series of quoting good commenters, this time at the Power Line Blog:

“If you reverse the political parties and the ideologies of all the players involved in the Charlottesville incident,” comments Steve Katz, “the mayor, the governor, the protesters, the counter protesters, the assailant, the victim, and the POTUS. the media would put 100 percent of the blame on the “Right Wing mayor” and the “Right Wing governor,” for ordering the cops not to intervene, and purposely allowing a riot to ensue.

“And the only comment they would seek from the Democrat POTUS, was an affirmation that the Right Wing mayor and the Right Wing governor were to blame for the whole thing.

“It’s unfortunate that so many seemingly intelligent people can’t figure out how this game is played. Did they learn absolutely nothing from comparing the media coverage of the shooting of Gabby Giffords to the media coverage of the shooting of Steve Scalise? Apparently not.”

Editing the Wall Street Journal

Editor-in-chief Gerard Baker excised several conclusions from the WSJ’s coverage of the president’s Phoenix rally. Admonishing reporters:

“Could we please just stick to reporting what he said rather than packaging it in exegesis and selective criticism?”

That’s what was leaked to the NYSlimes, anyhow, as the WSJ reporting staff fought back against removal of their editorializing. Concluded the Slimes:

“The Wall Street Journal is owned by the media magnate Rupert Murdoch, who speaks regularly with Mr. Trump and recently dined with the president at the White House.”

Oh, horrors. Well, I guess we know what Gerard’s work is worth, eh?

Rule 5: Bimbo News

Short, short skirts and ever-plunging necklines are the new norm in teevee news. The content doesn’t matter.

When Duty Calls

“When the left loses it always gets violent, it always creates diversions, it always uses its hold on the media, and it always proceeds according to the dictates of their crazy cult.

“I don’t think we can turn them back at this point. Cultists have [too much] trouble breaking out of their vivid dream to think clearly. Absent a sudden onset of sanity I don’t see it happening.

“It is the duty of every sane person to both counter their narrative and to try to fight off the inevitable overreaction.”

Such as the loony tunes idea that 14 percent (blacks) of 300 million are going to start a race war.

The Thugs of Antifa

The Mediacrats called them “counter-protestors.”

UPDATE:  Peter Beinart of the Atlantic: “The movement’s secrecy makes definitively cataloging its activities difficult, but this much is certain: Antifa’s power is growing. And how the rest of the activist left responds will help define its moral character in the Trump age.”
