Vid: "Hysterical" and emotional child Greta Thunberg needs to grow up some
Someone else made this point: Greta Thunberg is a sixteen year old girl. Yet her parents insist on dressing her as if she's 8. Including the little-girl braids. Is this part of the stagecraft?
The CW's heavily-promoted Batwoman -- a character blurbed by the network as "armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind" -- plummets in second week ratings, becoming the CW's lowest-viewed superhero show
Supergirl, which I also hear is a #WokeFest, also tanked in ratings.
I'm going to guess all of these shows are slipping in ratings. They're just not good. Update: Yup. The Flash show dropped in ratings too.
Let's check the difference between #Woke internet reviewers and the audience at Rotten Tomatoes: 69% positive for Batwoman from #Woke Mary Sue types, 12% from the audience.

Of course: Fake News ABC shows Turkish propaganda video, supposedly of Turkish forces advancing, but really of live fire at a Western gun range; ABC News refuses to issue on-air correction
Yes, they distinguish between "over the airwaves" -- which is what makes them a broadcasting operation, of course, and nothing little tweet corrections on the internet, which means nothing. This is what the Twitter Addict Jake Tapper Fanbois don't get -- sure, Jake Tapper will retweet a single post about some issue that hurts the Democrat party or his precious progressive/socialist movement. But these stories rarely make it to his actual show, the thing that counts in his mind, and counts in most people's minds, really, as the "real news," as opposed to some blow-off bullshit on Twitter.
Yet Jake Tapper's Twitter Fanbois are proud of themselves for lobbying Jakey to retweet something. They're very cheat dates -- 2 am bootycalls, really -- who won't insist on a proper date. You know, out in public. Meaning, on the air.
Opinion: The media desperately campaigned for Joker to fail -- and even tried to provoke a theater shooting to discredit Joker -- because the film is largely about the failure and evil of the media
That part of the analysis starts at 7:05. It should be cued up to that part.
I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but without getting into specifics, let's just say the media is as usual very, very concerned that something might provoke violence against the media specifically -- while being blithely unconcerned, or even downright enthusiastic, about provoking violence against those outside the Media Guild.
Oh, by the way, as the media's Plan A of stirring up a theater shooting didn't work out, they're going to their Plan B -- accusing the film of being about a White Man. Which, yes, is now apparently a crime.

Disney goes full Tran-phobic as it commits "Rose Erasure," airbrushing Rose Tico out of its Star Wars merchandise
This is a crime against race and gender. #BeBetter, Disney.
I can't believe Rian Johnson needed someone to crash a car in The Last Jedi, and he made it the Asian woman. What is this, 2015?!?!
#BeBetter, Disney. This isn't who we are.
Flashback: Rose Tico was such a popular character from the very popular The Last Jedi that fans bought her action figure by the dozens
Of course: Fat, weak, played-out Jonah Goldberg -- America's Oldest Tweenager -- starts his first Cuckpatch "Gfile" with... well, just guess, the see if you're right: "Dear Reader (as well as those who opted to receive this “news”letter through long protein strings)..."
It's almost as if he has two thoughts and one trick and has been endlessly recycling them for 20 years. And one of his two thoughts is actually mine. And the other one was cribbed from Claremont writers who weren't properly credited or cited in his book for providing the entire thesis of Liberal Fascism.
Six million dollars. Six million dollars for writing, or rather typing, the "Gfile," recording his stupid podcast (does anyone not have a podcast now?), and for Steve Hayes, a clumsy, dunderous writer, hackishly typing up the links Andrew Egger found for him.
Guys, this really is New Media Done Right. This isn't your grandfather's Internet-Based Newsletter! This is revolutionary stuff that will certainly last dozens of days past Election Day 2020.
Whistleblower Report: AllahPundit, other #SalonHot25 members are "visibly shaking" over Shep Smith news
@guypbenson 13m
Shep's contributions to FNC over the last 23 years transcend the fleeting political passions his departure will stir in some quarters. His sheer broadcasting talent is off the charts he's always cared deeply about getting the story right

He certainly kept us posted on cannibalism in the Superdome.

Jonah's All-In on defending Joe Biden
The thing about a grifter is, they always need a grift. You can't sell your "influence" without being able to claim that you influenced someone, sometime. These guys are either going to get a "moderate" Democrat elected, or claim that a very liberal Democrat is actually "moderate" and they got them elected, and then sell the "influence" they claimed made that possible -- or they're going to have to start selling insurance.
It's that simple: They can see the end of the gravy train coming. This is a personal financial existential crisis for them. They either prove they still matter, or it's time to finally start applying to law school.
This reminds me...the cvcks did have the chance to stop Trump in the 2016 primary, by jettisoning their fanfic bromances with Kasich and Rubio (who had no chance at getting the nomination) and backing Cruz, who was the only one with any kind of shot beating Trump.
They refused. They wanted to 'punish' the base by letting them nominate Trump, who would then crash and burn against Hillary and then come crawling back for the electoral genius of Rick Wilson/Liz Mair/Erick Erickson etc. Posted by: El Kabong

Yes, indeed. They claim to be "conservative" but oddly enough they're always trying to con us into nominating a moderate/liberal. Also remember that the Free Beacon paid Fusion GPS to start building an oppo file not just on Trump, but on Cruz as well. The moderate/liberal wing of our party -- if it is part of our party -- is very well-funded by moderate/liberal New York Wall Street guys who just want a Democrat who supports low tax rates on Wall Street, and will do whatever it takes to stop a conservative.
"The Dispatch" -- reached here through a redirect you might enjoy -- puts up its first, um, emission, and... it's a blog with a morning update component.
Wow. Six million dollars for a blog with a morning update component. Truly this is "a different kind of media" which will revolutionize how we think about news and how we news about thinking.
Can the Owned-and-Operated Corporate Shills masquerading as "conservatives" really maintain that the people of Hong Kong deserve liberty and democracy, but that the people of North Carolina don't?
Can you really be #Woke to the rights of Hong Kong residents and completely asleep at the wheel about the rights of Americans?
Maybe write to or tweet at your favorite Corporate Shill to ask him if he has any answer on this question. They won't answer you, of course, as they have no answer (except for the embarrassing, "But my liberal twitter friends were all on this bandwagon!"), but it might be helpful to serve notice to them that their poor regard for the freedoms of Americans has been noticed.
By the way: How long do you think this current liberal-led bandwagon of resistance to corporate media power last? A week, would you say, before they go back to lecturing everyone about the Doctrine of Corporate Infallibility? Will it be because they no longer feel the jubilation of being on the liberals' side (as usual), or will it because the men who sign their checks point out to them that it is in fact their names signed on their checks?

« Election Projection: Kerry Edges Popular Vote By Less Than 1%; Bush Just Barely Wins Electoral College | Main | Commander at Abu Ghraib Accused of Photographing Naked American Female Soldiers »
May 06, 2004

Andrew Sullivan Hissy-Fit Watch

It seems to me that some kind of reckoning has to be made by the president himself. No one below him can have the impact of a presidential statement of apology to the Iraqi and American people. Bush should give one. He should show true responsibility and remorse, which I have no doubt he feels. I can think of no better way than to go to Abu Ghraib itself, to witness the place where these abuses occurred and swear that the culprits will be punished and that it will not happen again. It would be a huge gesture. But frankly there is something tawdry about a president at a time like this campaigning in the Midwest in a bus. His entire war's rationale has been called into question. The integrity of the United States has been indelibly harmed on his watch. He must account for it. Soon. And why not in Iraq?

Hmmmm... why not? Maybe because terrorists shelled Abu Ghraib two weeks ago.

Hey, pal, maybe you should go to Abu Gharaib and apologize on all our behalfs. Haven't noticed that Andrew Sulivan has made any trips there.

And why should the President make such a dramatic, and dangerous, gesture?

Oh yes: Because the Muslim world is "angry" at us.

Gee, first fuckin' time on that, huh? We guess we must have really blown it to set the even-tempered, level-headed Muslim street into such a tizzy.

You know, it's really about time that we in the West stopped feeding into the Muslim extremists' belief that their unending, ritualistic "rages" have any effect on us. We're tired of being expected to walk on eggshells around a quarter of the world's population.

We can either accept dhimmitude or we can require the Muslim and Arab world to just fucking get over it, and get over themselves. They scream "Humiliation!" like Jesse Jackson screams "Selma all over again!"

And for us, at least, it now has the precise same impact. Which is to say, a rueful chuckle and/or a bemused smirk.

Andrew Sullivan Hissy-Fit Watch-- Current Status: Shrieking upon a table; believes he spied a mouse.

We grow weary of Andy's hormonal imbalances and constant cases of the vapors. Grow a pal, chum. This isn't seventh grade, and you're not a pretty little girl. You don't demonstrate your profound moral objections to events by simply engaging in ever-and-more hysterical and insulting language.

Andy has always been much, much too quick to hit that "Righteous Outrage" button. Remember Trent Lott?
