Last Night’s Headlines
November 12, 2016
I’ve made no secret that I don’t trust (or respect) our mainstream media. I think their clueless, self-centered coverage of our last election is only surpassed by their current “Sorry, my bad. Let’s move on.” attitude.
To support my case, let me present last night’s four top headlines from a common mainstream news site and briefly react to each news item.
Headline: CONFLICT: Trump’s Kids To Run His Business And Serve On Presidential Transition Team
The Trump family is going to ignore conflict of interest concerns? Really? What a surprise? This is not news. It would be news if the headline read: Trump’s Kids Sever Ties With His Business To Serve On Presidential Transition Team.
Headline: Clinton Campaign Points Fingers At James Comey For Trump’s Win
The Clinton Campaign would serve themselves and the nation best by shutting up. We listened to you for over a year – enough already! While James Comey played a part, please act like the adults you claim to be and assume the responsibility for your failure.
Headline: New Pre-Election Poll Suggests Bernie Sanders Could Have Trounced Trump
Where do I start?
First, WTF is a “New Pre-Election Poll”? Is it like a new Pre-Columbian antique? Cause, I don’t think that’s a thing.
Next, are you really coming to us with more polls? All the other “Pre-Election” polls you waved at us were either wrong or very wrong. Can we expect that same mathematical precision from this poll?
Finally, this is a pathetic attempt to milk a few more column inches of copy from a disaster by playing on the feelings of your readers. Fuck you! Go do some damn research; talk to some actual people – then listen. Report some relevant news!
Headline: Michael Moore Predicts Donald Trump Won’t Last 4 Years
We love you Michael.
Take care of yourselves and one another,
