Trust us, we’re professionally trained journalists

“Unbiased news does not exist.”

Dewey schlongsThe editor of Your Progressive Voice (the corporation that speaks as if it were a person) is up today with a plea to “main street Republicans” 

This, alone, is progress of a sort. Usually The Capital Times stereotypes Republicans as either martini-sipping country club types or illiterate inbred Klansmen.  

Paul Fanlund beseeches Republicans to respect the integrity of journalists such as himself. (Must restrain urge to use snotty quotation marks.) For they would never lie to us. Never twist a news story. Always report both sides. Trust us because:

Why would a professionally trained journalists lie or distort any more than a pharmacist would intentionally screw up a prescription or a lawyer purposely botch a will?

We give, Paul. Why? Maybe you should ask Janet Cooke. Or Walter Duranty, who papered over Stalin’s genocide for the New York Times. Or Rolling Stone and their University of Virginia fraternity rape story. Editor Fanlund continues:

The vast subset of Republicans … in their hearts know that what is going on — the lies and the assaults on institutions — is wrong, even anti-American. … They are even willing to say the press lies — that it is corrupt and hateful — rather than acknowledge the truth.

We question whether Mr. Fanlund knows what is in anyone’s hearts. But to the point: What truth must we acknowledge? 

That Republicans “win elections with racial dog whistles, then turn to an agenda of tax cuts and deregulation.”

Always, the race card. White privilege. Implicit bias. The neutrinos of identity politics. (We’ll plead guilty to the tax cuts and deregulation.)

I’ve looked at life from All Sides now

Professionally trained journalist Paul Fanlund cites a source for his borrowed insight. It is Paul Krugman, “the brilliant New York Times columnist.” Claiming an unbiased news media and then citing Paul Krugman! BRILLIANT!

logo-all-sides-bigWhich puts us onto a great website find called AllSides. The site ranks news organizations and prominent practitioners on the familiar Left/Right scale.  AllSides presents the same news stories as covered from the Left, the Right, and the Center.

“Don’t be fooled by media bias and fake news. Unbiased news does not exist,” it claims.

Peter Strzok, unfiltered

“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Lisa Page texted Strzok.

“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.

No bias there. Just some pillow talk between illicit lovers. Who is the “We” and how will they stop it? Professional journalists won’t ask.

Before Strzok said a single word, professional journalists at The New York Times posted this headline: “FBI Agent at Center of Russia Probe Turns Tables on GOP.”

The Washington Post: “Peter Strzok just gave a hard-to-rebut defense of the objectivity.”


Blaska’s Bottom Line: At least Paul Fanlund and The Capital Times aren’t biased, right?

  1. I know you’re reading Paul. Enjoy.

    Paul asks, “Why would professionally trained journalists lie or distort any more than a pharmacist would intentionally screw up a prescription or a lawyer purposely botch a will? “

    Paul Fanlund is the epitome of bias that makes you stupid if he can’t answer that question in the exact same manner that follows.

    Paul it’s because there are absolutely no consequences to the unethical lies, innuendo, and unsupportable accusations that these so-called “professionally trained journalists” intentionally spew like there are for a pharmacist who intentionally screw up prescriptions every damn day or a lawyer that purposely botches things they do every damn day. That’s why Paul!

    The anti-Republican, anti-Trump, Political Antiology, and the blatantly obvious bias driving the predominately left leaning media is anti-American and they are making themselves an enemy of the people because instead of just presenting the facts of the news they have turned it into a Progressive propaganda machine and you Paul are part of that unethical propaganda machine. The predominately left leaning media has completely consumed themselves in the ends justify the means mentality and quite frankly Paul, your piece is the same damn thing. The media learned over time that what Malcolm X said is true, “The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.” and they are wielding that power unethically and immorally. They are fully consumed by Progressive Rhetorical ABC’s, that’s why Paul. The so-called “professionally trained journalists” in the left leaning media are morally bankrupt and Paul Fanlund is trying to unethically rationalize away their own propaganda problem.

    To be absolutely equal in my disdain; the small segment of right leaning media that exists opposing the overwhelmingly left leaning media does the same damn thing now.

          Again, 100% ad hominem. I submit the quote above as proof that Richard Lesiak is a troll. That reply was a reply to a direct challenge for Richard Lesiak to prove his absolutely false accusation.

          Troll: Those that post inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, often for their own amusement.

          It is my opinion that when you directly challenge a “Progressive” to prove their accusations, this is exactly the kind of fully consumed idiotic bull shit you get from their insidious little twit of a mind. These little twits, like Richard Lesiak, AnonyBob, and Old Baldy have made an active personal choice to take on the roles of Richard Noggin – Progressive Troll and destroy any possibility of civility in discussions related to politics, this shows their complete and utter moral bankruptcy. These are the kinds of people that are literally destroying all possibility of civility the USA one false accusation at a time, one intentional misrepresentation at a time, one twisted innuendo smear at a time, and one ad hominem at a time. The left wing media machine is absolutely full of these insidious little twits, or Jackass Journalist Jackals making the media the enemy of the people by spreading their mind-numbingly ignorant propaganda (fake news) which is specifically designed to gin up faux outrage and in the process they are destroying to the very core purpose of why we have the Constitution. Mark my words, if these anti-Constitutional twits had their way they’d do one of three things, lock up every single person that thinks differently than them in a Warsaw like ghettos with absolutely no rights and no hope, have those that think differently killed to permanently eradicate individual thought, or both. Progressives are the evil they claim to oppose.

          A Progressive cannot be proud to be an American because they have to occupy the same country with absolutely deplorable people that have different opinions than they do and that is so utterly offensive to them that it strips them of any possibility of patriotic American pride. A Progressive can’t tolerate any thoughts that challenge their all consuming totalitarian cult-like ideology (e.g. ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Khmer Rouge, Nazi, Ancient Egypt, etc) they must eradicate any thought that differs than their own; this is exactly where we are headed if these totalitarians are allowed to take control of the USA.

        Here’s the actual factual truth. A person does not carry their I.P. address with them to each computer device they use, each computer device has it’s own I.P. address. Yes, that’s right, your desktop computers, your laptop computers, and each of your internet accessible cell phones all have different I.P. addresses.

        In conclusion: the reality is that one person can have more than one I.P. address when blogging under different pseudonyms here, in fact they can have ore than one I.P. address even if they are using the same pseudonym on different computer devices.

        “cut down on the gay porn man.”

        Soooooo, yer bigoted against non-participating heteros/alternative lifestyle enthusiasts enough to make a weak attempt at humor with gay-bashing?

        Tolerantly, of course.

        My Gay Sister would kick yer fat @$$, then high five her favorite Brother after doing so.

        FWIW, she packs SERIOUS heat, so youse better hope it’s just an @$$-kickin’.

          If President Trump (say it with me!) could take a page from the Clintonista Grifter Playbook in order to dispel the idea that the eminently clueless think he’s a raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaacist.

          What’s that one thing?

          As you know, Hillarity was co-President when the Former-Serial-Predator-In-Chief signed the Omnibus Crime/3 Strikes & Yer Out Crime Bill into law, which led to mass incarceration of Blacks & other minorities.

          What did the Clintonista Grifters do when they were rightly accused?

          The Former-Serial-Predator-In-Chief leased office space in Harlem.

          Hillarity? For one thing, she went on speaking tours and used a hilariously phony southern accent.

          But the kill shot/coup de grâce? She let everyone know the ONE thing she ALWAYS carries in her purse, other than pictures of her special friend Huma, was Hot Sauce.

          On Hillarity Clinton’s Pandering: Hillarity Clinton’s remarks about hot sauce sparked controversy—but where is the line between pandering and authenticity?

          Hillarity wouldn’t know authenticity if it rose up and bit her on that big fat @$$!

    The over arching issue here from Fanlund, the media, educators etc. is that they set up a post Marxist ideology that aims to check freedom and liberty by attacking the pillars of western civilization. They attack definitions of family, marriage, logic, gender, science and morality as opinions that can be over turned by consensus which is accomplished by relativism which becomes peer reviewed “science” which changes as necessary. See Orwell’s “Animal Farm” as exhibit A.
    At its heart it is nihilism. There is no God so there can be no God given rights. If you insist on religion we’ll tell you what to bake and when…… and you’ll damn well like it.
    The Constitution has emanations and a penumbra that only the Left can interpret as our oracles.
    American exceptionalism is anathema. Racism in pursuit of fairness is not RAY-cism racism. Group is everything, individual is nothing.
    My vote for George W. Bush was not legitimate because the courts couldn’t overthrow it.
    My vote for Donald Trump was not legitimate because RUSSIA!
    Comes the moment… comes the man.
    It took an outsider like President Trump to make their hollow hopelessness obvious. The media, and you, Paul Fanlund, are the Gaderene swine.

      @Batman;

      “If looking back to the way things were”

      July 14th is an interesting day for Lefties.

      It’s Bastille Day; the day that, going forward, seemed like a good idea at the time but led to the Reign of Terror and the rise of Napoleon.

      FAR more importantly, it’s also the Diamond Anniversary of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers’ Party) banning all political parties in the Mother Land except for the party they became.

      National Socialist German Workers’ Party is catchy, am I right

      *National (Solidarnost, dude!)
      *Socialist (A paternalistic over-reaching Big Gubmint to make everyone’s decisions and provide free everything)
      *Workers (A term whose historical meaning has…um…shifted)
      *Party (Who doesn’t LUV a good party, especially when it appears to be funded with OPM)

      The NSDAP presciently realized the name was too lengthy to remember for their target audience, those that could be wooed with more More MORE high quality/quantity free stuff.

      Like any organization interested in extending its influence, it made the command decision to streamline its name, making it more easily recognizable, one that just kinda rolled off your tongue.

      Take a wild guess what they chose?
