Oh, The Humanity

Big Media writers prove themselves to be numbskulls on the most basic of human levels.

Big Media writers can disguise their numbskulledness on complex issues because they use ornate or exclusionary language or skew the discussion in such a way that a reader attempting to understand an issue emerges with a misunderstanding of the issue or feeling that they, not the writer, are the dumb ones. But on the truly basic human levels the numbskulls reveal themselves fully.

This past weekend the New York Times published an article on Hillary and Bill Clinton campaigning in New Hampshire. The brains-for-ass New York Times writer served up the same stale dish narrative Big Media has on the menu these days: ‘Bill Clinton is not comfortable being on the sidelines’. Here’s how to communicate the bogus menu item, Big Media style:

Mr. Clinton seemed to struggle with the proper posture for him at his wife’s side, alternately sitting up straight on his stool or slouching slightly, crossing his legs or crossing his ankles, keeping his hands in his pocket or putting a hand on his chin.

Why does such drivel make it onto a writer’s pad and through the filter of any conscious editor? Answer: because that silly drivel, not the news, is actually the center of the Big Media narrative. Notice, earlier in the article we learned that Bill Clinton “took a seat on a stool on stage”. Have you ever tried sitting on a wooden stool on a platform in summer heat?

Ask any person the size of Bill Clinton how it feels to sit on a wooden stool?

Padding foam does not help. “Natural” padding does not help. The only thing to do is fidget. Move from one buttock to the other, hook shoe heels to foot rests, fold arms, unfold arms, elbows on knees, hands under buttocks, move head forward, move head back…. Our plush padded princes of Big Media don’t know about plain wooden stools. They do know how to disguise the drivel as news to push their narrative.

  1. or andrea mitchell asking hillary is she afraid of being overshadowed by her husband. the big bad media asks this over and over again. but they discount the 85% favorable rating hillary has with the democratic voters. 90% for bill. they don’t like the polls saying she leads by double digits nationally and almost everywhere. that’s not the story they want to cover. did anybody see meet the press sunday? lord, they pop up a gallup poll showing hillary leading by 16 points but what they do. commenting on how well hillary is doing? noooooo. they harp on bill’s supposed overshadowing hillary. they just can’t except the fact she is going to get nominated and elected president. i can’t wait till nov 5th 2008 bucause i will crow all over the rooftops of hillary’s victory. i know i should not crow and be humble but hillary has taken so much a beating i will have no shame doing it.

  2. I wonder how the MSM is going to handle the
    Wilson endorsement?

    Admin: Your earlier discussion about VEEP seems
    forward thinking. How about Webb after yesterday’s MTP?

  3. the nutroots are a bunch of sour grapes crybabies on the liberal sites. they are trashing the wilson endorsement. u bet the bottom dollar if their candidate go the endorsement they would party. i called them sour grapes cry babies.

  4. Admin,

    ABCNews has an article that uncovers Obama’s fraud. It’s a very interesting writing. Mydd has a diary on it. Since I have problem to link the article, you can search it yourself. It may need a front page on this site tomorrow!

    ‘Despite Rhetoric, Obama Pushed Lobbyists’ Interests’. It’s on ABCNews blog, written by Justin Rood .

    Away from the bright lights and high-minded rhetoric of the campaign trail, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., has quietly worked with corporate lobbyists to help pass breaks worth $12 million.

    In his speeches, Obama has lambasted lobbyists and moneyed interests who “have turned our government into a game only they can afford to play.”

    “It’s an entire culture in Washington — some of it legal, some of it not,” the Democratic hopeful told a New York crowd in June, rallying support for his ethics reform agenda.

    But last year, at the request of a hired representative for an Australian-owned chemical corporation Nufarm, Obama introduced nine separate bills exempting the company from import fees on a range of chemical ingredients it uses in the manufacture of pesticides and herbicides. Nufarm’s U.S. subsidiary is based in Illinois.

    New kind of politics, indeed. The more I think this guy, I more I feel he is a complete fraud, phoney and empty suit.
