Political trolls come out of the wood work when their party is under attack and they make no bones about their ideological loyalty. "Benghazi!". Scream.Spittle. Drool.
Jeff Zucker, the head man over at CNN, is under attack for telling the truth about Fox News and the fact that they are nothing but a propaganda arm of the republican party. I am not sure I understand why. It's a business model ---and a successful one--- that they (Fox) have adopted and should embrace. My only problem with it is that they pretend to be "fair and balanced" when Stevie Wonder can see that they are not.
Of course MSNBC has a similar business model, but they are the left wing version of FOX. One could argue that they are the propaganda arm of the Democratic party as well. Unlike Fox, however, they seem to embrace the label and the pretense of providing real balanced news coverage is just not there.
Speaking of Zucker, I know that he wants to claim that his network is a right down the middle news organization, but I have to question that. He seems to have a lot of people on his network who can't wait to cash one of those Roger Ailes checks (I see you Don Lemon and Jake Tapper), and when I hear him talk all I hear is jealousy of Fox's ratings.
Oh well, hopefully a day will come when all of these phony cable networks become irrelevant and we the people will get our news from talking to each other (I love twitter) and going directly to the source.
Finally, just a few random things that I have to vent about before I kick back and enjoy some EPL this Sunday morning:
Vending machines that sell burritos.
Sick sexual deviants among us who need to have their johnsons removed.
Gullible people among us who believe everything that they are told.
Major retail stores that can't protect our information.
Useless and unnecessary apps.
Ignorant rappers who believe that they have to live out the lyrics they spit.
Politicians who think that we are all stupid.
Reality television and the talentless ---and drama filled--- stars it creates.
I could go on but the Man City Newcastle game is getting good.
