Remember, it was this mainstream media who gushed over the Rump for thirty years, telling everybody what a business whiz he was, telling us what a genius he was.

I have lived my entire life in a media narrative that Republicans are simply not supposed to face any consequences for their actions and what we have been witnessing for the last 48 hours is the result of a media completely unequipped to handle exactly that happening. I think thats why theres such a cognitive dissonance between how punditry is reacting to this versus, well, basically the rest of the planet. People are done. They are fucking done with this bullshit.

The pieces are rapidly fitting together to the conclusion that the administration, their existing ignorance to all of this aside, likely went to the debate knowing they may be exposed, hid it, and then didnt tell Biden. I know Im screaming at a brick wall when I say this, but how is there a partisan debate about something like that. That is criminal recklessness. That is at best incompetence and at worst actual insanity. But because of the media narrative I have lived in my entire life, the reaction from our elite punditry is to bow their heads and offer well wishes to these violent, criminal lunatics we all know did this to themselves, and to us.
Read the whole thing. :popcorn:

The real question, of course, is how come Biden is being so "cagey" about his health? Cuz, you know, both sides.

Biden's margin is getting too wide. Bad for ratings, or whatever the fuck they're calling how they reduce people to numbers these days. :oldman: Our beloved media conglomerates will do anything to make it a closer race, up to and including destroying the country via another 4 years of this shit.

"Sure, our reporting has found massive inconsistencies and red flags in this story, and it doesn't even prove what it's insinuated to prove, but nonetheless, we insist that Biden answer questions about it and bring focus onto the story!"

I mean, at least they had the courtesy not to hound Elizabeth Warren with questions about her BDSM sex dungeon, because Rudy Giuliani is somehow a more respectable source than Jacob Wohl, but just because Giuliani made up some obvious bullshit doesn't mean you have to do this.

Meanwhile, they can't even ratfuck properly:


Oh god, the horror, he loves his son and doesn't give up on him. I guess Trump and Giuliani think this makes Biden weak. Trump's kids are deranged like him, and Giuliani's daughter hates him, so I guess they would find proper parenting strange.

Biden is to Trump as McCain is to Obama.

I've always suspected that The New Yorker is something of a privately funded welfare system for incompetents who, but for their New Yorker jerbs, would be performing sexual favors for methamphetamine and/or leeching off taxpayers in perpetuity.

Jeffrey Toobin is a goddamn moron. His legal commentary is the worst of the worst, essentially guaranteed to be wrong. That's been true for decades. He's a top notch example of how easily trash can rise to the top in the media biz.

In a recent Zoom conference "featuring New Yorker all-stars," ol' Jeff actually managed to catch himself on camera doing the five-knuckle shuffle:

Quote:
The New Yorker has suspended reporter Jeffrey Toobin for masturbating on a Zoom video chat between members of the New Yorker and WNYC radio last week. Toobin says he did not realize his video was on.

I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers, Toobin told Motherboard.

I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video, he added.
The dipshit statements above suggest that Jeff punches the clown while on the job all the time, but managed to keep others from seeing it until this latest incident.
