The same media which recites faxed talking points from the DNC is having a collective cow over talking points sent from Sinclair corporate to Sinclair stations, wherein anchors read from the same script decrying the one-sided bias of social media. Probably because Facebook, Twitter and Google (which owns YouTube) are all run by Mao-loving leftists. A point we’ve made here several times.
But a script is the real parasite on news, you guys:
This reminds me of Rush Limbaugh, who plays media montages from “the drive-by media” reciting the exact same talking points. The one which comes to my mind most readily is Dick Cheney’s pairing with George W. Bush, which all of media “decided” was a sign of “gravitas.” This was recorded way back in 2000, before YouTube’s heyday, so I couldn’t find that specific clip in my preferred time window.
Fret not, for here’s a montage of media describing the Nunes memo as a “nothing burger.”
But that’s not the only one. In fact there are many. Here’s media talking about a Kerry gaffe being good for Obama:
Remember the 2016 campaign? Of course you do. Here’s a montage of media bemoaning Trump not giving “specifics.”
Look, we could be here all day. Mainstream media is called “mainstream media” for a number of reasons. One of which is how they’re all copies of each other, repeating the same narrative down to the same narrative points. Often the same words.
Sinclair, it seems, told their networks to talk to their audience about bias in social media. Because bias in social media is a problem. So in another act of clear hypocrisy and projection, mainstream media lackeys banded together to simultaneously decry Sinclair, all at once. As it if it was a coordinated attack.
So many pots. So many kettles. This glass house is overflowing with heavy cooking items flying about, one is bound to get hurt.
Finally, America isn’t a democracy. We’re a representative constitutional republic. Full stop.
