Title: Irritating MSM Favoritism
Post by: Ben on February 15, 2021, 10:59:22 AM
I know we have several topics on it, but this one currently bothers me more than most:

Quote

@VP
 Harris to
@mikeallen
: "There was no national strategy or plan for [COVID-19] vaccinations. … We're starting from scratch."

https://twitchy.com/gregp-3534/2021/02/14/fact-checkers-assemble-kamala-harris-used-debunked-vaccine-talking-point-during-axios-interview/

https://twitchy.com/samj-3930/2021/02/15/oof-byron-york-drops-big-ol-receipt-right-on-kamala-harris-head-after-she-lies-again-about-trump-admin-having-no-vaccine-plan/

Harris has been pushing this lie since day one, with no one in the MSM calling her out on it. What has made it even more irritating to me is that this morning I decided to flip through the local news channels. All three that I hit featured that above soundbite from Harris and plugged it with a big dose of "of course she's right."

This goes back to that video clip either me or somebody else here posted with the montage of "local" news stations all across the country using exactly identical text/scripts for a host of anti-Trump news reports. It's all puppet masters and puppet strings controlled by the big news corps. Were I to only listen to my "local" news, I would be taking this Harris outright lie at face value.

Not to mention that Harris seems to be the biggest liar pants on fire in the administration. Lie after lie after lie, blatantly, and she is completely protected by the MSM "fact checkers".

Commie Harris is a politician + she is a demorat + she is a leftie socialist= SHE IS A LIAR.

 Just for gratuitous pleasure I will point out she slept her way into office. >:D



You expect honesty? ? :rofl:

I'm old enough to remember when the fascists acknowledged Trump had a plan, and it was bad for poors, or browns, or whatever their talking point was.

Also, are they still introducing statements from pro-American politicians with the phrase "claimed, w/o evidence," or was that just for President Trump?

I couldn't find if we had a separate stimulus topic, but this certainly fits here. The WaPo cheerleading Biden, who is "showering Americans with money".  ;/

I like the comment about "Jeff Bezos, come get your newspaper, it's drunk again".

But Biden, so far, has been impregnable. The voice is too bland and devoid of obvious quirks, and beyond the occasional “C’mon, man,” his conversational manner too muted and self-effacing, to give the parodists much to work with. Trump supporters and Fox News pundits would undoubtedly attribute this to the media’s liberal bias. And to be sure, Trump was viewed by the (mostly liberal) satirists not just as an irresistible comic target but also as a dire threat to the nation. Biden’s pleasantly boring presidency has been a welcome return to normality — but hardly great material for parody.

Let’s hope that changes. Can we really survive four years with a president who doesn’t have a vivid enough profile to make the cold open of “Saturday Night Live”? Can’t Joe Biden, in between planning for immigration reform and an infrastructure bill, offer a new conversational tic or catchphrase? “Malarkey” went out with the debate season. A verbal gaffe would be helpful, but Biden has set a modern record for getting this far into his presidency without holding a press briefing. Impressionists need something to latch onto.

...but the whole publication seems to be based there.

No, they like to gaslight us with the idea that the media gives Biden a pass because he is normal, and has no obvious flaws.

I guess it's okay for Presidents to take time off again. The MSM has allowed it.

From Biden's press conference today:

Some probing questions from today's news conference...

"Joe, is your name Joe?"

"Given that today is Thursday, is today Thursday?"

"How are you feeling today? Great or really great?"

"Where are you right now, Joe?"

Hard hitting investigative journalism at its finest!


And, of course, the Washington Post is essentially telling reports to handle Joe gently...

Wow, tough questions. For Biden's sake I hope Harris was there to whisper the answers in his ear

Not sure if this qualifies as MSM, but YouTube has been deleting dislikes from Biden White House videos:

https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/youtube-deleted-2-5-million-dislikes-from-biden-white-house-videos-data-indicates_3759997.html

Did a quick random sampling of WH vids.  Dislikes are still outnumbering likes by a significant margin, and I didn't see a single video that allowed comments.

I read that. How can that be defended as NOT social engineering by big tech with too much power?

If they have legitimate proof that the (dis)likes are coming from bots, they would have a legitimate reason to remove them. 

That said, we all know the most likely reason is YouTube running interference for the Democrats.

They did the same with Michelle and Hillary. Everything they wore was instantly proclaimed the hottest and often the sexiest new fashion by the MSM.

There are lies, damn lies, and politicians.  The Ds ranted daily about Trump being a liar.  So far Biden, Kmaala, the Biden Administration, and D legislators have made Trump look like Honest Abe.

I'd like to see more info on this:

It sounds like the guy is going to be railroaded by both the MSM and the Army. I haven't seen video other than what's making the rounds, but read that the reason he shoved the punk is because said punk was approaching his wife (outside the video frame) and the guy wanted to steer him away. Sounds like a protection reflex to me, and he certainly didn't "shove" the punk.

Again, there are about 10,000 antifa members that should be arrested if this shove is the minimum standard for an assault arrest.
