Time Magazine: Comedians should know their duty

From Brent Bozell, on a recent Richard Zoglin piece in Time, at Townhall

Apparently the “payoff” is the comedians convincing the press to get even nastier with Republicans. Noah told Time: “There’s a certain level of naivete when you say Hillary Clinton is worse than Trump. I think that’s a very dangerous position to be in. And I think the press has gotten to a place where they are realizing it’s about truth and not neutrality.

“The comedians and the press must favor “the truth.” That’s the Clinton side — the lovers of “truth”? Trump’s existence is somehow entirely mythical, as Bee contended saying, “News organizations simply are not equipped to cover a candidate whose entire being is a lie.” More.

Reality check: What this indicates is that Time has abdicated any claim to a role as a news organization. Put another way, if the view is accepted that “News organizations simply are not equipped to cover a candidate whose entire being is a lie,” then the news organization is obsolete.

It’s irrelevant whether the claim about Trump is well-founded or not. Bee’s view is like claiming to be a doctor and announcing that one cannot handle a familiar medical emergency.

But never fear, a Hill win means that people without insight or competence interpret us to ourselves, with special government protections, spoken or otherwise.

    What they are saying it that they would like it to be a lie, but since they don’t actually have any evidence that it’s a lie, they will just state that it is and hope that the rubes take them at their word.

    “News organizations simply are not equipped to cover a candidate whose entire being is a lie”

    But they are equipped to lie about a candidates entire being.

    Also, candidates should probably not be covered by news organizations whose entire existence is a lie.
