Jill Abramson penned a comedy piece for The Onion called, ‘Hillary Clinton is Fundamentally Honest’. Have you ever even imagined anything so funny? Now Jill used to be an editor for the always reliable, truthful and honest New York Times. I know, here I go again with the jokes. You can read the article here http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/mar/28/hillary-clinton-honest-transparency-jill-abramson Oops sorry, it was a serious article.
The New York Times editorial staff never had much in the way of credible political coverage and if Jill still worked for the Times this article would fit right in. If Jill ever had any credibility she certainly lost it with this POS article. The thing that amazes me is that these people are so out of touch that they still believe they are the mainstream of thinking in the country.
Of course the NYT isn’t alone. You have the WaPo, Chicago Tribune and many more. Most of these rags are losing readership in droves because of the sheer idiocy of their opinions and the total fabrication of their “news stories”. You know it’s bad when the cartoons are the most truthful part of the paper. Ms. Abramson had to do this opinion piece for the UK Guardian as even the Times wouldn’t publish a croc of crap like that. As a child, if you told lies like this you would have been grounded for life!
The whole point of this rant is to point out how deceitful and duplicitous the mainstream media is. How they manipulate the news and, not just in their opinion pieces, to try to influence public opinion. News stories are always slanted to the left. When a democRAT politician gets caught committing a crime or just dating his sister the LSM (Lame Stream Media) will never, NEVER report the party affiliation. That is if they report it all and if they do the story will be vague and will appear on page fourteen. If it is a Republican you can be sure the headline will read something like, “REPUBLICAN councilman JOHN SMITH blah blah blah”. And it will be on page one above the fold. The story will contain plenty of speculation.
The papers aren’t alone. The major network “news” organizations are the same. Fox and some of the other “conservative” outlets are almost as bad. They claim to have conservative values and ideals but they are just selling product. The commentators in many cases are just as liberal as the ones on the networks. An example is that by most accounts Ted Cruz has pretty much aced the debates. He out-debated everybody. Did you hear or read that? No! All the oxygen got sucked out of the Republican Party by Donald Trump. The establishment absolutely hates Cruz. They May not like Trump but they think they can beat him. (And if not they can deal with him.) The media is helping Hillary by helping Trump. They tried helping Jeb, Nobody went for that joke. Then is was Rubio. No dice. Now they’re actually thinking about Kasich. They don’t want Trump but they really don’t want Cruz.
In Texas there is a town called New Braunfels, where there is a large German-speaking population.
One day, a local rancher driving down a country road noticed a man using his hand to drink water from the rancher’s stock pond.
The rancher rolled down the window and shouted: “Sehr angenehm! Trink das Wasser nicht. Die Kuehe haben darein geschissen.” This means: “Glad to meet you! Don’t drink the water. The cows have shit in it.”
The man shouted back: “I’m from New York and just down here campaigning for Hillary Clinton. I can’t understand you. Please speak in English.”
The rancher replied: “Use both hands.”
