“Trump’s critics in the media have fallen into an insidious habit of taking his quotes criticizing the hordes who burn buildings and tear down statues, and reporting them as criticism of “racial justice protesters.” This is dishonest.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/07/07/medias-mischaracterization-trumps-mount-rushmore-...
6 deaths in Allegheny County (Pittsburgh) yesterday. Or not. These deaths are backdated up to THREE months. Not one since June 13. But by the time they get to @CNN and rest of the media, this tweet will be forgotten and all we will hear is how Western Pennsylvania is spiking....
It is absolutely crazy that someone feels comfortable writing and sending this. Why would any worthwhile publication want someone this intolerant working for them?
The Washington Post’s Mt. Rushmore whopper called out here, and Tammy Duckworth’s as well: Premier press outlets and a U.S. senator flagrantly lied about the content of President Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech, writes @Holman Jenkins https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-press-on-mount-rushmore-11594162964
"I'm sorry! I didn't realize that, when signing a letter that warns of an expanding culture of 'ideological conformity,' I was agreeing with people whose ideology does not conform with my own."
I suspect that the very journalists who scoff at Trump’s description of the culture war all know that if they or their colleagues say something disparaging or even skeptical about Black Lives Matter, their jobs would instantly be at risk. https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/07/president-trump-mount-rushmore-speech-distorted-by-media/
. @Brit Hume rips the media for their coverage of President Trump's Mt. Rushmore speech: "I don't think I've ever seen such dishonest and biased coverage of any event."
This editorial is simply insane. Yes, he criticized the violent rioters and radicals rampaging in the streets. But his speech was mostly a full-throated defense of America’s history and heroes, and cited not a confederate among them. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/trump-plumbed-new-depths-of-depravity-this-fourth-of-july/20...
In a pandemic, infection numbers are a lousy way to measure the danger of the disease. Yes, people will get sick. But the question is who? And how sick? And what is the mortality rate? Is it going up, or down. Atlas gets this. https://www.kusi.com/dr-scott-atlas-disputes-covid-19-fear-mongering-tactics-from-our-health-officials/
Much bad reporting and commentary these days is just slanted or misleading. What Duckworth said about Trump’s Rushmore speech, reported uncritically in much of the media, is flat-out false. https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/senator-duckworth-and-most-of-the-press-are-lying-about-trumps...
Because they aren’t. Though homicide is THE leading cause of death for black men under 45 (screenshots to follow); nearly all homicide is intraracial (this is true for both whites and blacks).
And quite a thread it is
Even worse, did you know ~10,000,000 Americans have died since @Donald J. Trump became President? And over 20,000,000 died when @Barack Obama was President! WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP DYING?!? THIS IS WRONG. WE MUST END DEATH. Or we can never celebrate anything ever again. Or go outside.
