Things I learned from eleusis on the last page.

1 - Trump doesn't dislike Jeff Sessions
2 - Trump doesn't want to fire Rod Rosenstein

What the fuck is happening? Why is the USA Today allowing a glorified press release full of lies to be deemed an op-ed by the president? And no accompanying fact check. And blasting it out as fact to all of their followers.

Trump and the thirsting need to both-sides the shit out of everything has completely broken the media.

Good job network newscasts this evening doing the GOPs job for them. Every single one led with the stupid fucking caravan.

Nothing like continuously pumping out GOP talking point nonsense day after day.

^its going to work for them. I know it. This country is being run based on how well the GOP can strum the Id of geriatric white people that are afraid of everything. I haven’t been so worried about this election until I saw that blaring out everywhere.

But you are 100% correct that it is enabled by the media. Strumming Id gets a lot of clicks after all, and clicks are clearly more valuable than decent journalism to them.

Nothing makes me want to burn everything to the ground more than a shit narrative totally taking over the news cycle and the rubes just eating up.

It’s problematic that the media constantly chases the attention of dipshit ignorant citizens, but I fail to see how that problem is solved when the dipshit ignorant citizens actually own the means of journalism.

Journalists don't choose that profession for the money. It generally doesn't pay very well. They do it because they enjoy writing and reporting. But newspapers aren't run by journalists anymore, they're run by capitalists who don't tend to really care about journalism. And when you are alienated from your labor -- having your message dictated by wealthy owners with a profit motive -- the quality of your work suffers and panders to the least common denominator. It wouldn't be "dipshit citizens" owning the means, it would be journalists who would then have the ability & drive to create better work.

In the short term, co-ops are not perfect but step in the right direction.

The media/celebrity response to people attacking tucker carlson's house is annoying. They shouldn't apologize to Carlson, it's not their fault, if someone's shitty it may make people mad enough to act shitty. You can think they crossed a line without apologizing for them.

protesting at white supremacists' homes is very good and we should do it more.

it's funny how the media will call this monstrous behavior, but play both sides when it comes to brown children feeling safe at home

^Then put your money where your mouth is and go do it. And while you are at it, go protest at their synagogues and softball practices.

Or maybe just continue to sit behind a computer and encourage everyone else do the heavy lifting you support.

Apparently this article from 1996 started "the liberal media" trope. https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB122669696168929319

From "The Fairway" https://taibbi.substack.com/p/the-church-of-averageness in reference to it:

Quote :
"Goldberg probably didn’t know it, or maybe he did, but he was doing the very thing he would later accuse “liberal media” of doing, i.e. cartoonizing the little guy. Bias furthered the cliché of the hard-working, salt-of-the-earth “silent majority” American fella (it’s always a fella) who gets ridiculed by the cruel snobbishness of upper-class media jerks.

Goldberg, a lifelong TV producer who’d been in the business since 1972 and knew the mechanics of journalism inside and out, was right that the “Reality Check” piece was a hatchet job, and that Enberg was plainly making fun of his subject.

But Enberg wasn’t making fun of little guys like Jerry Kelley. He was making fun of congenital billionaire Steve Forbes, one of the world’s biggest assholes, a lecturing nasal weirdo whose face is frozen in a creepy pinched-cheek smile, as if even the inside of his mouth were stuffed with dollars."

His family owned slaves in the American South.

I don't know about everybody else, but I'm not prepared to sit around and let some weird Christian missionary tell me about socialism while also being shitty as hell about everything else.


He's fucking weird. He always has been. And I'm not prepared to let it go.

Is it really an Ad? I just see some facts that many people might not know. I don't see any call to action promoting it.

Or do I not understand what ads are?

Amazon becomes a sponsor of NPR

NPR publishes a list of Amazon's businesses and what they do as an "article"
