That’s the conclusion of Breitbart’s Joel B. Pollack on the NYSlimes and the WaPo, who are piling on President Trump with almost daily criticism:
“In their effort to impugn Trump, the Times and the Post violate the most basic journalistic standards. Publishing parts of a document that you do not possess and cannot verify, and timing the release to cause maximum political damage (right after the president leaves the country), is not investigative journalism. It is political propaganda.”
And, Pollack might have added, their work is splashed across the front pages of innumerable Mediacrat newspapers across the country: Sheep who have always followed the NYSlimes and the Wapo, wagging their tails behind them.
“Yes, I spent 25 years as a member of the MSM, 16 of them at Time magazine at the pinnacle of its fame and influence. Still, I have to agree with Mr. Newt that it’s not the function of the executive branch to spoon-feed the hostile, lazy, anonymice-quoting Washington press corps at a daily briefing in the White House…The daily briefing has devolved into a coup-counting sneer fest, with reporters attempting to score points while eliciting exactly zero useful or newsworthy information. Close it down.”
Couldn’t have said it better, and so I’m reprinting this from PJMedia columnist Michael Walsh.
“‘The lawsuit against CNN, meanwhile, claims the company’s Atlanta headquarters is rife with racism,’ The New York Post wrote on April 27.”
That’s a lawsuit by 175 current and former employees of the masters of Fake News. Strange that we don’t hear much about it, or its progress, while any dispute involving Fox is prime news.
Obviously, the Mediacrats protect their own.

Congratulations to my good former Statesman editor Michael Hurd who has scored a University of Texas Press publishing gig. His book, the Thursday Night Lights, will be out in October.
Salena Zito, formerly of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, currently of the Washington Examiner, brings The Donald into sharper focus:
“It’s a very intensive process,” he says of the presidency. “Really intense. I get up to bed late and I get up early.” He rarely sleeps more than four hours, which is good, he explains, because he can call leaders around the world in the dark hours while the rest of Washington sleeps.
“When I was doing many real estate deals at one time, I always thought that was going to be more comprehensive and lengthier than a day like this.
Read. It. All. Here.
“At 4:14am this morning, the driveway alarm jangled me out of a deep sleep. Vela Von and I snapped to and peeped out the window ’cause you just don’t rush out the door helter skelter at that hour if you are smart.”

JOURNALISM IS ABOUT KEEPING DEMOCRATIC CONSTITUENCIES RILED UP, AND REPUBLICAN CONSTITUENCIES DEPRESSED
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
