Top O’ the Briefing
Happy Wednesday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. If the cleaning problem can’t be handled with steel wool and/or bleach, just head to a bar and drink.
I cut my teeth in political blogging by writing about liberal bias in the mainstream media back at the turn of the century when it wasn’t even called blogging yet. While I am fairly well-informed about most of what goes on in American politics, it is media bias that remains my particular area of expertise.
Much to my chagrin, the love affair between the Democrats and the embarrassing idiots who call themselves journalists hasn’t waned at all in the over two decades I’ve been writing about it. Yeah, it manifests itself a little differently, but it continues to flourish.
The biggest difference between then and now is that the members of the mainstream media are a lot more open about their bias. Back in the day, they would all vehemently deny that they leaned one way and one way only. One of Donald Trump’s greatest achievements as president was to make these loathsome propagandists permanently out themselves as being in the bag for the Democrats.
The biggest change in that time is the emergence of conservative new/digital media. I couldn’t have dreamed of something like PJ Media or the Townhall Media Mothership back in 2000. Unlike the MSM, we’ve always acknowledged our bias over here. We are quite proud of it, in fact.
The ever-growing presence of conservative media has done a lot to expose the insidious bias of the mainstream media behemoth. They get caught a lot more than they used to. One might think that would make them want to change their ways a bit.
One would be mistaken.
They still fawn over each other in stomach-churning fashion. It’s like watching the ugliest people on Earth constantly telling each other that they’re hot when in reality they’re so hideous that it’s difficult to keep food down around them.
In yesterday’s Briefing we discussed the toilet flush of a president that is Joe Biden. America’s MSM hacks are the ones who put him in office. The Democrats wouldn’t have been able to pull off whatever the hell it was they did last November without the MSM lying and covering for them. Jim Acosta and George Stephanopoulos are as much to blame for the supply chain crisis, inflation, and global unrest as the drooling husk in the Oval Office is.
Rather than take Biden to task for being the abject failure that he is, the pathetic lapdogs in the MSM are sneaking around in the shadows with his puppet masters, working on ways to help President Pervwhisper save face.
According to CNN’s media newsletter, the Biden administration is meeting with journalists “behind the scenes” to change the way they are covering the supply chain crisis and other economic issues that have been hurting Biden’s approval ratings.
“The White House, not happy with the news media’s coverage of the supply chain and economy, has been working behind the scenes trying to reshape coverage in its favor,” reports Oliver Darcy at CNN. “Senior White House and admin officials — including NEC Deputy Directors David Kamin and Bharat Ramamurti, along with Ports Envoy John Porcari — have been briefing major newsrooms over the past week, a source tells me.”
“The officials have been discussing with newsrooms trends pertaining to job creation, economic growth, supply chains, and more,” Darcy continued. “The basic argument that has been made: That the country’s economy is in much better shape than it was last year. I’m told the conversations have been productive, with anchors and reporters and producers getting to talk with the officials…”
Administration officials have been in furious spin mode regarding the economy since last summer and none of it is sticking.
Six months later they still believe that a little bit of rephrasing by the subpar intellects in the MSM will make everything better. They are about to once again find out that the American people aren’t stupid. I’m including a lot of the ones who voted for Biden and are now wracked with buyer’s remorse among the non-dumb.
Team Biden is so overwhelmingly incompetent that they couldn’t hide it if they got David Copperfield to roofie the electorate, then perform one of his disappearing illusions.
By helping to perpetuate this Biden-induced misery, the American journalist class is reaffirming its status as a true enemy of the people. The perversion of the First Amendment that these people gleefully engage in on a daily basis is far more dangerous than the drunk people who wandered around the Capitol during the Jan. 6 protests. The lying talking heads at CNN and their ilk are the real existential threats to our freedom.
As long as the Democrats and the MSM remain unsavory bedfellows neither can be trusted.
But they can be mocked, which I will continue to do with great delight.
