'the 'mainstream media' can go fuck itself. it was a weekend full of journalistic atrocities' Jeff Tiedrich [View all]

'the so-called mainstream media fucking sucks. this we know. on any given day, the lazy and intentionally misleading reporting from the worthless, corporate-contolled scribblers of the press makes you want to guzzle paint thinner straight from the can.....we just lived through one of those weekends. witness just three of the worst offenders.

hey, here’s a thing that happened: Joe Biden borrowed $50,000 from a line of credit on his vacation home. oh, okay. did he hide it? no, it’s right there on his White House financial disclosure statement...and why did Forbes Magazine create a video about it that they plastered all over social media?

here’s another journalistic war crime, this time from Politico...buried towards the bottom of a report on Trump’s trial is this total fucking head-scratcher of a paragraph: It’s impossible to know exactly how Trump will behave if he returns to office. By all accounts, Trump has professionalized his 2024 campaign, suggesting he learned something from his slapdash first campaign and his 2020 reelection loss. The question is whether his views on presidential prerogatives have changed or whether he intends to be guided by loftier principles.

first sentence: “It’s impossible to know exactly how Trump will behave if he returns to office.” sure, Trump is unpredictable — but that’s because the guy is an impulsive moron with the attention span of a coked-up squirrel. but we sure as fuck know what Trump intends to do. has Politico never heard of Project 2025?'

My words: Read on, it gets better.
