We used to refer to those who read the news on TV as "meat puppets."
Newspapers are dropping like flies, left and right. I predicted it 30 years ago. The three newspapers I worked on are now out of business. They were run by morons.
I had one good boss (who left the field a long time ago). The rest? Incompetents.
Newspapers never tell the truth. They're afraid of losing their advertising, which is what supports them. People on the internet don't care. Only the bigger sites have major advertising.
I make about a thousand dollars a year off of the internet. I don't need it. It's gas and cigars and dog food. And because of that I can say what want on my blog.
Many journalists think they are smarter, more knowledgeable and more moral than the average inbred Flyover Land troglodyte, whom to them are just expendable cannon fodder (I've known more than one guy killed - including one I went to high school with and was killed as a helicopter pilot during the invasion of Grenada - or horribly mangled in combat, including one paralyzed from the neck down at age 19. And for what? Nothing.).
I should have paid more attention to Nixon and Watergate, but I was what? 15? 16? I didn't care (a political 16-year-old can't be right in the head). But it turns out the press just hated Nixon. They always hated him and were orgasmic when they brought him down and he had to resign. They never considered him a legitimate President anyway. That fact that the dumbass inbred troglodytes did just proved to them how they shouldn't be allowed to vote anyway and should instead be ruled by the Self-Anointed.
The media hates Trump, and if he wins (and I think he will) the media is going to spend the next four years trying to bring him down in any way they can (Pauline Kael once wrote she didn't understand Nixon being elected because all her East Coast leftwing friends were voting for McGovern).
I'm sure Trump fully understands this hatred of him by the media.
Hillary Clinton, who truly is a corrupt monster, doesn't get a fraction of the criticism Trump gets from the media. The media would rather have her be President, which is why they are saying she is way ahead in the polls and will slaughter Trump in the election.
Personally I think Trump will mangle her, the way Nixon took 49 states to McGovern's one.
I am not the slightest bit concerned with what any well-known economist or Talking Head thinks about Trump. I put my opinion above theirs. I always have.
George Will? Paul Krugman? Thomas Sowell? John McCain? For all practical purposes all of them are now doddering senile old fools. I don't care what any of them think about Trump or anything else. Why should anyone else?
Who cares that both Bushes refused to endorse Trump and instead endorsed Clinton? Do they really think anyone cares what they think, especially after that inbred idiot Dubya Shrub invaded two innocent countries and is a war criminal responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people? What sort of complete fantasy world do these morons live in?
When did journalists get this ignorant and stupid? When they were required to get college degrees instead of working their way up like Jimmy Olsen, cub reporter? When they got on TV, which I'm sure went straight to their heads? Perhaps both?
Rush Limbaugh, who isn't stupid and actually understands the appeal of Trump, never even graduated college. What good is college at all for someone who wants to be a newspaperman? It isn't, in the slightest.
They should start at the bottom and work their way up. It should be like that for all jobs.
The media and academia babbles about Trump's economic policies. WTF? Wages stopped going up in January, 1974. Our government has allowed businesses to send all our wealth and knowledge to China, allowing them to arm themselves against us. And now the government is spending hundreds of billions trying to contain them???
The "elites" don't know what they what they doing. And Trump is going to make things worse? Exactly how?
All of this is based on my decades of experience with these morons.
