The media loves Hillary — and it could cost her the election

ugly-bitch-hillary-clintonBack when I was a pup in the newspaper business, legendary reporter Peter Kihss gave me lifetime advice about covering politicians. Remember, he said, there are no such things as stupid questions, only stupid answers.

Which brings us to Lester Holt and the accusations that the moderator tipped Monday’s debate in favor of Hillary Clinton. Holt’s bias was obvious, but the impact was not inevitable. It mattered largely because, shockingly, Donald Trump was shocked that Holt was in the tank for Clinton.

    “No such thing as stupid questions”

    Spoken like a true journalist.
    Because, as everyone knows journalists are all-wise, everyone else is a moron.

    Even when they write something that supports my political view I still hate these arrogant assholes.

      The point of the article is that distrust of the media and its shabby ethics might generate enough decisive votes to give Trump the win, and most media people are too stupid to see it coming.

        Yeah, I read it and I understood the point of the article. I even agree with it – completely.
        It’s just that I have reached a point in my loathing of journalists that even when they say something that I agree with and ought to like I still can’t hold back my disgust 😀

          G, after over four decades of dealing with the “media” on behalf of a diverse roster of clients, I feel exactly the way you do about the MSM and its “journalists”.

    Trump should have quietly wearily said to Lester “Mr Holt….I believe your bias is showing.”

      I think that would have an incredible impact. Just say exactly that, short and simple, with a veneer of polite objection, and then move on. Don’t get into a rant about media conspiracies, just make your point so fast that they can’t get their footing and let them sputter in indignation.

      From then on, everyone is going to be watching for it, and if the moderator wants to protest his innocence, HE’S the one that is sidetracking the debate trying to prove he’s not in the tank.

      Could someone please put Mika on suicide watch? I’m worried about her.

  • Spatchcocked

    Mika…….poor Mika…..she’s hedging her bets and trying to save a future career when journalists are treated like the toilet paper they are…
    Other than that I find her attractive somehow….so how’s her toilet look?
    A beautiful toilet is essential for spatchcocked to pledge his troth completely…

    Anyone know?

      Ethnically speaking you might expect some form of cast iron pot and a bunch of burlap strips or corn husks

  • Spatchcocked

    I’m an assman….and legs.
    The mind character and general demeanour are important as well….of course.

    It’s funny you know…I know ALL the tricks the form divine use to ensnare us but never yet have I seen a corker of an arsie with nice pins ever betray me.

    Not yet at any rate….
