FakeNews. Technically it is accurate, but it's just not fucking news. Jesus Christ.

The difference is that the LIBBERUL media believe the hicks used to believe them.
It was self deception, and now they are trying to get back what in fact they never had.

Whereas the right wingers never figured they had 'em all fooled.

My point being is that neither side is really interested in convincing the other. They just want a pretense to act like the other side is the only unreasonable one.

No one wants to convince the others. They want an excuse to go after the other. Let’s not fool ourselves and pretend otherwise

True enough now. Modulo the LIBBERUL media really thought they had won, except for a bit of mop up.

Yet we persist in the fiction that we just want to "have a dialogue" or whatever the bullshit phrase du jour is, instead of wanting to kill each other. Baffles me as to why. It's not like is a particularly well kept secret.

As far as I know, right wingers never did use that phrase and are pretty much honest about writing off their detractors (and kind of were all along though much more extreme now).

It is left wing types who still speak of having a "dialog", now meaning a platform from which to deliver unconditional demands.
And yet, in a general way, left wingers are also honest about writing off their detractors too.

That really is a change in rhetoric in both camps.

For one thing, left wingers (other than fringe Maoists and the like) really were in favor of freedom of speech.

For the longest time the commies and hippies whined about the chinese flooding the solar panel market.

Trump slaps a tariff on the shit. How do they report it?

"major blow to renewables..."

FakeNews Ongoing. The headline is a narrative of the actual event and the conclusion that should be left to the reader. The righties could equally run the headline "Trump bolsters domestic renewables production", "Trump protects US renewables jobs", etc as the same distortion.

Remember that crazy guy with a gun who showed up at the pizza parlor that was the subject of those "Pizzagate" rumors?

Man arrested, accused of threatening to kill CNN employees

A Michigan man was arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot and kill CNN employees, WGCL-TV reported Monday.

The FBI launched an investigation after the man, who is unnamed in the CBS report, reportedly called CNN 22 times about a week ago.

"Fake news. I'm coming to gun you all down,” the man told a CNN operator, according to court documents obtained by WGCL-TV.

He allegedly later called CNN again, saying, "I'm smarter than you. More powerful than you. I have more guns than you. More manpower. Your cast is about to get gunned down in a matter of hours."

"I am coming to Georgia right now to go to the CNN headquarters to f---ing gun every single last one of you,” he said.

The FBI were able to trace the call and arrested the man over the threats.

President Trump has repeatedly attacked the media, including CNN, calling coverage of himself and his administration “fake news.” The network was among the winners of Trump’s “Fake News Awards” last week.

Trump also retweeted out an edited GIF of him wrestling a man with the CNN logo superimposed on his head, as well as an image of him with what appeared to the CNN logo in a splatter of blood on the bottom of his shoe.

Journalists have criticized Trump’s attacks on the media, and warning that him lashing out against the press could lead to actual acts of violence against reporters.


Not saying I agree with any of this by the way. I'm taking a wait-and-see approach on this one. It'll be interesting to see who this guy turns out to be and what his actual political leanings are.

It's funny, since people have actually physically attacked Trump supporters and Trump himself because of the media's attacks on them.

It went both ways, but things have largely calmed down. Crying wolf does have its limits.

The media attacks Trump and then complains when he fights back?

Curious.

Granted, a President occasionally acting like he graduated high school would prove most efficacious, but CNN and MSNBC have been ejaculating over "RUSSIA" about as much as Faux over Hillary.

The other guy might be an idiot, a fool, a clown, but when you behave the idiot, fool, and clown you cannot really complain when the other guy recognizes your kinship.
