At first, I literally could not believe my eyes this morning. I blinked several times, but no, it was still there. The New York Times just posted an op-ed by one of the nation’s most infamous right-wing...

Fox & Friends ‘Accidentally’ Screened A Headline Showing Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dead

This is beyond poor taste, this is depraved. Watch the beginning of this clip, where for 3 seconds a photo of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the years of her life (presumably ending this year) are displayed. Fox News just slipped in Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s obituary segment opener pic.twitter.com/PfN6ICltYb — Chip Douglas (@AreaMan_) January 21, 2019 Steve Doocy eventually jumped in and admitted error, but how, pray tell, does one make an error like this? The Hill: The hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Monday apologized for showing a graphic saying Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead, blaming a control room error. “We need to apologize. … A technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of RBG with a date on it,” co-host Steve Doocy said later in the program. “We don’t want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident.” “We apologize, big mistake,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt added. A Fox News spokesperson told The Hill: “This was a technical error that emanated from the graphics team.” Kinda makes you wonder if the graphics team is so used to putting up lies, that they simply failed to notice that Justice Ginsburg was still on this side of the grass. Fox News is scary. Really scary.

Two People, Outside Government, Could and Likely Will, Take Trump Down

Of course, there are any number of people who control information that would destroy Trump and his presidency, perhaps even his personal freedom. But, nearly all of the “typical” people who could topple the administration are within the administration, or outside this country. However, there are two people who work outside of government, two people without any secret inside information, could easily take Trump down with ease and speed. Rupert and Lachlan Murdock. The two people who control Fox News, known by some to be “Trump TV” are inextricably tied to Trump’s fate. Like Pompeo and Barr, the Murdoch future is hinging upon the correct determination as to when to jump off the S.S. Trump, as it careens recklessly through a sea of icebergs. Obviously, Rupert sold his soul long ago, pumping up Trump to loyal viewers, harvesting advertising dollars that go straight into the Murdoch family bank account. But, Lachlan, the younger Murdoch, must necessarily focus upon the long-term Fox future. Lachlan cannot allow the network to cross the Trump event horizon, that black hole that eventually sucks in everyone who blindly revolves around Trump. Lachlan must navigate the situation such that he knows when to blast off tp a safer and more stable orbit. Without “Trump TV” propaganda to manipulate each new shocking revelation, Trump is, quite literally, sunk. As noted in a great column in Rawstory: Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch decide what propaganda gets sold as news on the Fox cable channel. They helped create the false image of Trump the great leader. Their compliant and highly paid program hosts have sustained Trump, attacking anyone who challenges the president, riling up his base. But the relationship between the network and Trump has been fraying for months. Now may be the time for the Murdochs to finally let it unravel. I agree. We have noted over and over that the Trump movement resembles a cult, perhaps it is a cult (look at the way Qanon became “mainstream” within the supporters). Like any cult, the leader does no wrong, and is never questioned. But, as we’ve said, cults do not last forever, and the moment something pierces a cult leader’s invulnerability, the movement folds, blindingly fast, and nothing the leader does can save it. The Murdochs, for whatever else they may be, are not stupid, and understand the dynamic all too well. They will not risk their golden empire attempting to prop-up a man committed to destroying himself and the nation he “leads.” Additionally, unlike real news organizations, the Murdochs control the “news” slant at Fox with an iron grip. If the Murdochs direct the entertainer Sean Hannity to stop with his ludicrous assaults on Trump critics, then Hannity will. If they give new scripts to the actors playing journalists on Fox & Friends they will follow those scripts. If they generally signal to Fox News and Fox Business hosts that Trump is persona non grata they will get the message and repeat it. That is what makes Fox unlike legitimate news organizations where editors or producers w,ho try to issue such orders would at best be refused and at worst be forced out. This Murdochian style can be adopted to benefit our nation. Does anyone doubt the summation? Think about what Fox has to lose. After years of […]

Things Come Undone, Shocking Behavior on the Sunday Morning Shows

Down South, Sunday morning means church. But throughout much of blue America, it means the New York Times, the farmers’ market, and Sunday talk shows, the period during which the news is analyzed, not made. Today revealed, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the nation is coming undone. Where to begin? How about Fox News, where none other than Sith Stephen Miller decried the coup instigated by those anti-American Deep Statists against the greatest president to bless this nation. Up with this, even Chris Wallace would not put: Via CrooksandLiars: “This is a deep state operative, pure and simple,” Miller charged. “People who haven’t been in the federal government, who haven’t worked in the White House may not appreciate this but the situation is you have a group of unelected bureaucrats who think that they need to take down this president.” “Enough with the rhetoric,” Wallace shot back. “Let’s talk about some specific facts in this.” Done? Nyet. “How about answering my question?” Wallace interrupted after Miller tried to avoid the topic. “I understand,” Miller replied. “I understand that you have your question, I have my answer.” “It’s a non-answer at this point,” Wallace observed. Well, alrighty then. It must be frustrating to be the Trumpiest of the Trumpers, go on Trump TV, only to get one’s ass grilled for brunch. Over on CNN, yet another Trump apologist got ridiculed by known liberal Democratic-Socialist Bill Kristol, not at all happy that Trumper David Urban refused to actually answer a question, preferring instead to focus upon meany Adam Schiff and his “made-up” story about Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president. “Pathetic” Kristol labeled the attempt, as the two began shouting over each other: via Rawstory: After Urban frantically attacked Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for reading a parody of the highly redacted transcript of Trump’s conversation with the president of Ukraine, Kristol said he was making too big of a deal about it in order to deflect from the president’s criminality.”This is pathetic,” Kristol began only to have Urban yell over him and what followed was a quick-paced back and forth. “This isn’t about the chairman [Schiff], it’s about the president of the United States,” Kristol charged. “Will you defend the president’s behavior? The real transcript?” Short answer? No. “You think President Trump’s behavior was proper?” Kristol demanded. “Is it proper for Adam Schiff to read something,” Urban attempted, which Kristol dismissed as unimportant. To be real clear, this particular “always-Trumper” believes the real scandal is Schiff’s characterization of the transcript, and not the obvious illegalities within the transcript. Once respectable Republican Lindsey Graham demonstrated that he either continues his descent into madness, or is having an increasingly difficult time fulfilling his role as the wholly compromised U.S. Senator in charge of covering for all things felonious Trump. Lindsey wonders why we haven’t yet heard from all the witnesses and are going forward on “hearsay,” apparently forgetting that Trump admitted to the gist of the charge, and also banking on Trump supporters’ inability to understand the words “impeachment investigation.” Also via Rawstory, from Face the Nation: “The complaint sounds like a legal document,” Graham insisted. “Who helped this guy write it or this girl write it. We are not going to try the president of the United States based on hearsay. […]

Desperate for positive numbers, Trump now cites OANN … who?

O(N)AN — is a purely pro-Trump media outlet, and with the entertainment segments of Fox News supporting him more than the news side, Individual-1 is scraping the bottom of that barrel. Compounding lies. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1139861307002368000 OANN is pro-Trump. Robert...
