UM, WHEN. . .

is that Washington Post series on Jeff Bezos’s and Amazon’s tax avoidance going to run, again?

Case closed.

But I frequently enjoy reading the Post’s political coverage.

BUT SANDERS HAS THE EVIDENCE

The Washington Post is supposed to be part of the fact-based community, and usually it is.

But not when it comes to Bernie Sanders.

FAIR’s Julie Hollar has collected incontrovertible evidence of how biased is the Post’s coverage of Sen. Sanders.

WHICH ABJECT FAILURE AND CATASTROPHE WILL THE “MAINSTREAM” MEDIA LIONIZE NEXT?

Remember, Trump was all but conjured out of thin air by the “mainstream” media, which assisted him in creating an utterly ersatz persona and narrative.

Let’s scan the horizon and head off the media’s creation of the next Trump!

A STUDENT OF TOTALITARIAN SOCIETIES

told me she was horrified by Trump’s senile, demagogic rant in Pennsylvania, finding particularly ominous his attempt yet again to float the trial balloon of lifetime dictatorship, framed ( for now) as a joking hypothetical. She reminded me that Trump’s idol Adolph Hitler wasted no time in suspending elections once he himself had been elected by a mesmerized Germany.

CORPORATE MEDIA OWNERSHIP = CORPORATE MEDIA (sometimes most subtly) CENSORSHIP

At Common Dreams, Normon Solomon quotes George Seldes:

“The most stupid boast in the history of present-day journalism is that of the writer who says, ‘I have never been given orders; I am free to do as I like.'”

“Seldes noted that reporters routinely ‘know from contact with the great minds of the press lords or from the simple deduction that the bosses are in big business and the news must be slanted accordingly, or from the general intangible atmosphere which prevails everywhere, what they can do and what they must never do.'”

I will repeat that this has been catastrophic for the arts as well as every other sector of American society.

FOX “NEWS” PEDDLES THE OPIATE OF CLIMATE-CHANGE DENIAL

Fox “news” personalities need to prepare for their children’s fury when they discover how their parents foreclosed their futures in the name of short-term financial gain.

Thank you, media deregulators, for bringing us this venue of apocalyptic indoctrination!

TRUMP SHOWS US WHAT HE’S LEARNED IN DICTATORSHIP SEMINAR

His mouthings about how much love he received and how much respect was shown for the office of the presidency–in his words–demonstrate, once again, how he intends to use the converse construction, i.e. criticism of Trump is disrespect toward the presidency itself–to further tamp down on dissent.

In reality, of course, it is Trump who is defiling the office of the presidency and anyone who wants to protect its dignity needs to confront Trump’s desecration.

IF YOU STILL COULDN’T BRING YOURSELF

to admit that the GOP is fascistic–

try their latest attempt to criminalize dissent on for size.

Regarding their current to muffle with the “terrorist” smear anti-Fascist AntiFa, member David Rose tells Truthout that GOP senators “are attempting to open the door to legalizing any form of dissent against racist institutions or groups.”

ANY TYPE OF TRANSPARENCY IS ANATHEMA TO TRUMP WORLD

because any degree of transparency reveals the massive, systemic fraud it is committing against America. For Trump’s sleazy, stupid eldest progeny, referencing already publicly-listed identification of Trumps’ donors is tantamount to mass murder.

This is their value system: this is what their equivalencies are.
It’s a depraved family and administration.
