Hillary Clinton Blames Right-Wing Media ‘Domination’

“Look, we have an advocacy press on the right that has done a really good job for the last 25 years,” she said later, returning to the subject. “They have a mission. They use the rights given to them under the First Amendment to advocate a set of policies that are in their interests, their commercial, corporate, religious interests. Because the advocacy media occupies the right, and the center needs to be focused on providing as accurate information as possible. Not both-sides-ism and not false equivalency.”

She attack right-wing media a third time in the interview, complaining about their “domination” of the media.

“We’re up against suppression, we’re up against an even greater domination of the media by the right. We are up against the propaganda machine. I mean, they have a reelect campaign already started! They have raised millions of dollars,” she said. They know that they’re in a fight.”

It is getting so old listening to lefties who lost elections whine and complain about the right wing media and the damage they inflicted on them.

Yes, there is a right wing media. Yes, they have a right wing agenda. There is also a left wing media with a left wing agenda, and that left wing media is the mainstream media. The fact is, there is no “center” media. There is not a media source right now that does not have a wing bias. It’s why I encourage people to read both right wing and left wing media, because the real story is a combination of the two sides. But you have to work to find it, and people don’t want to do that. I don’t blame them. But we tend to go where we lean.

So, no, Hillary. The right wing media probably didn’t hurt you, because the people following right wing media weren’t going to vote for you anyway. The left wing media was pushing hard for you and your agenda, and you still lost. That’s you. It’s all you, lady. Judging by your inability to take personal responsibility for your loss in a rigged election that was practically handed to you and was pushed for so hard by the left wing media, we apparently dodged a hell of a bullet by keeping you out of office!

Notre Dame Students Walk Out Of Graduation To Protest Pence. The Crowd’s Reaction Is Priceless

A video of the walk-out is extraordinary. The crowd cheers when Pence is introduced, but boos loudly when the students rise to walk out.

Pence, always classy, didn’t acknowledge the walkout. But he did chide those purveying the current state of intolerance on campuses by saying in his address that “free speech and civility are waning on campuses across America.”

My mother actually told me about this yesterday, mostly because she was appalled by it. My mother is a democrat and doesn’t like the president or vice president, but even she admitted it was wholly disrespectful and wrong. She pointed out that if it had been my graduation and I had walked out on the vice president’s speech – regardless of who it was – she would have slapped me. And I pointed out that it isn’t something I would have done. I may have videoed it and critiqued it later, but walk out? Hell no!

It made it’s way into the news after that, and my mother continued to comment on it. The way the media has portrayed it, you would think it was this massive walk out that included a large portion of the graduates walking out during the speech. And my mother was beside herself that that many graduates would be leaving college with that level of disrespect.

So I opened this clip on my phone and showed my mother. The big deal the media made about it was a little overblown… as usual. As you can see (and was reported), it was less than 100 students that walked out. The vast majority of graduates stayed, some even stood and clapped when he took the podium.

I’m not disregarding the event. It was still massively disrespectful that anyone walked out on the speech. And I worry that these people are entering the work force now. Although as overly offended snowflakes, their prospects at getting and keeping a job are limited.

But as usual, the media made it out to be bigger than it was. Even my mother was astounded when she saw the actual walk out. It is a sign of the times, and something to always keep in the back of your mind as the media goes nuts over everything Trump does. Remember, Trump could fart into the wind and the media would make a huge scandal out of it.

Me? As I said… if it had been my graduation, regardless of the vice president at the time, I’d be there videoing the heck out of it, most likely for you guys. 🙂

But you righties… you need to calm the hell down! So hateful and violent. This leftie journalist is obviously a classy women full of grace and love.

Trey Gowdy on NYT Story that Trump Asked James Comey to Lay off Mike Flynn

I’d also like to know if anyone else heard Trump ask Comey to drop the case on Flynn. A memo is nice and all, but anyone can write a memo and they can put anything they want in it. Are there witnesses? Recordings? Anything other than the word of James Comey, who didn’t think it was necessary to mention until after he got fired?

Who the Hell Cares?!

I know, you probably already saw this, but…

And you know what?

Nobody cares, CNN. Nobody. Cares.

This is why so many people are backing away from the mainstream media, and why so many claim to dislike and/or distrust the mainstream media. Why was this news? Why?! Was it a slow news night? Because I find that very hard to believe.

Trump Threatens To End Press Briefings To Fight ‘Fake News’

I don’t normally find it valuable to tweet at the president, whoever the president may be. But I did this time.

As much as I dislike and distrust the press, they have a Constitutional right here and I will defend that. Stopping press briefings because you don’t like what they say is not the answer. Sure, give out written responses. Hell, live stream the press conferences so the truth is available for everyone to see. But stopping the press briefings? No, I don’t agree with that at all. Stand strong, you do you. They are never going to have a good word for Donald Trump. But keep rolling through anyway. And do not block them out. It won’t end well. Take the high ground, Mr. President.

Awwww! Trump Won’t be on Ellen’s Show!

By now I am sure you have heard the absolutely heartbreaking news that Donald Trump will not be invited on Ellen DeGeneres’ show. And I’m sure that upon hearing this devastating news, Trump probably drank a ton of bourbon and cried himself to sleep. You may have, as well. I know I did.

OK, maybe not so much.

There are several reasons why I am even bothering to talk about this, as normally I would have rolled my eyes and moved on when the article came across my search this evening.

First of all, have you seen her show? What small percentage of her show isn’t dedicated to herself, she spends interviewing special guests… who she doesn’t allow to speak. Basically, she invites them there to listen to her talk. She’ll ask a question and answer it for them. They really just have to sit there and smile, and possibly survive whatever pranks she decides to pull on them. I used to catch her show once in a while years ago, because my mother had been an avid watcher of the show. Until, that is, she had Queen Latifa on. My mother loves Queen Latifa. I forget why she was on, it may have been around the time they released the version of Chicago that she was in. But my mother waited anxiously to see the interview. Finally, Queen Latifa came out and sat for the interview. My mother was devastated that she got about two words out. The rest of it was Ellen talking at her, and then suddenly the interview was over. My mother has never watched the show again. Thank God.

Second, what would happen if a talk show host said this about Obama? It’s sort of the same with Colbert’s vulgar comments about Trump a few days. I’m inclined to defend his right to say it, and I’m inclined to defend Ellen’s right to invite whoever the hell she wants on her show. But replace Trump with Obama in either situation, and what do you think would have happened? Colbert would have been fired immediately. His career would be over and we’d be hearing screeching for years. And if Ellen had made a stink about not bringing Obama onto her show because they don’t share the same values? Her show would have been cancelled. Over. So I have a hard time defending either of them when I know damn well that turn around isn’t fair play. The outrage isn’t consistent.

Third, differing values and opinions make great TV. Who the hell actually wants to watch two people having a conversation where they completely agree on everything and nod like bobbleheads at each other for ten minutes? What a boring show that is! I want to watch people have a mature – MATURE – conversation about their differing opinions and beliefs and stances. Pit the two sides against each other and talk it out. That makes for interesting TV. That brings everyone in. That forces people to think. It’s one of the reasons I like The Rubin Report. He regularly has conversations with people he doesn’t agree with, but the conversations contain no screaming, name calling, accusations, etc. It’s a conversation, and it draws people in from both sides, makes you think, and gives you a chance to consider both sides.

But that isn’t what people like Ellen want. They don’t want you to think. They don’t want you to hear both sides. They want you to believe what they tell you to believe, and nothing else. This is what is so wrong with our entire mainstream – and some non-mainstream – media. This is how it is, this is how you should think and feel, nothing else will be tolerated and may most likely be mocked.

So good. Don’t have Trump on. You wouldn’t let him speak anyway. And your show belongs in the sideshow tent of the circus, because the only thing it offers is a lot of cringe.
