Irritating MSM Favoritism
« 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

@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

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?

The sad part is the huge number of people that will accept that as the gospel truth.  :facepalm:
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Plus gaslighting. CNN and WaPo are already defending his statement.

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".

I would say that WaPo has a correspondent from some alternate universe...

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/03/08/snl-biden-impressions-presidents/?utm_campaign=wp_main&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social

Quote
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.

In other words they like their presidents to be a like a page out of a coloring book so that they can color the picture whatever color THEY want

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.

From Biden's press conference today:

You don't even need tin foil to think that was a pre-scripted question and response.

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.
