Mainstream Media in the Age of trump


#1105

The court stenographer, nominally the employee of the NYT, is, per her master’s wishes, singing the praises of Fox News and promoting their programming.


#1106

“tough”, “think will be easy”

Is Trump just straight up ghost-writing these tweets now?


#1107

It’s missing a “SAD!” at the end and some more random capitalization. Otherwise, looks legit.


#1108

Live feed of Habs


#1109

… aaaand Trump loses yet another lawsuit.


#1110

Knife fight at the next press conference.


#1111

It’s actually a temporary restraining order, so the main show hasn’t happened yet. But not looking good for the Trump Admin’s “there’s no legal issue here” position.


#1112

Jacob Wohl is slipping - why aren’t there any female accusers of Jim Acosta yet?


#1113

It’s like you didn’t even see Acosta bludgeon that hapless White House aid to death on live TV the other day.


#1114

That’s clearly just an extension of the rampant deviant behavior he engages in away from the cameras. Many people are saying that he assaulted a woman that looks remarkably similar to Wohl’s neighbor and/or sister.

#1116

Trump isn’t going to the annual Correspondents’ Dinner again, but that didn’t stop them from cowering. No comedian this year.


#1117

The Trump administration blinks, restores Acosta’s press pass for good and avoids legal case.


#1118

NYT gets caught with its editorial bias showing:

… and quickly moves to cover it up:

It’s A Very Serious Issue when it’s Clinton, mere partisan fodder when it’s Ivanka.


#1119

Good argument presented by Trump sycophant last night:

It’s unfair to compare Ivanka to Clinton. Ivanka should be compared to Chelsea.

Despite the fact that Chelsea didn’t work for Clinton’s administration… Because she was a child. And also email basically didn’t exist in 1992.


#1120

So we get to call her ugly and it’s fine? Also she’s going to be a high schooler with no connection to the White House? I’m fine with that.

Cause that’s all I really remember about Chelsea back in those days: GOP talking heads made fun of her and she didn’t have a fucking job in the White House.


#1121

Fair and balanced!


#1122

I love the pull quote says ‘she was unaware of the rules’

The fuck you say? Unaware you lying sycophant? Your fucking father banged on about emails all the goddamn time. Granted he and his whole administration went in on doing the same or worse. But how stupid do you think people are to believe you could honestly be ‘unaware’ of e-mail rules

looks at voter totals

Ok, pretty damn stupid. I’ll give you that.


#1123

Let me use that the next time I am pulled over for speeding.


#1124

How white are you?
