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.

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?

Josh Marshall: Capture of Al Qaeda Leader Shows "Suspicious Timing"

Again with the timing crap.

I'm sorry that hunting terrorists conflicts with your political calendar, Joshy.

Is Marshall suggesting that we delay capturing terrorists until after November 2nd so that we score no victories against Al Qaeda that might hurt John Kerry?

Remember, this is one of our fellow patriotic Americans talking. A fellow patriotic American who sees a captured Al Qaeda leader and screams in agony over it.

He'd rather have the terrorist free than in Bush's prison.

Hey, fuckface. Douchebag. Shall we delay all anti-terrorist measures until November 3rd? Please explain to us why we should do so.

Make you a deal. We'll cancel all such measures, but if there's a terrorist attack in the US that results in any American deaths, John Kerry concedes the election. Fair, asshole?

I'm sorry, but I just can't fucking take it anymore.

Update: At this point they -- meaning Marshall and his paranoid-fringe brethren at DU (except they're not fringe anymore; the liberals have embraced their inner lunatic) -- are actively on Al Qaeda's side. Any victory Bush scores against Al Qaeda is a victory against Kerry. Ergo, they're praying their little hearts out for Osama bin Ladin and Musab al-Zarqawi.

Is this an overstatement? Let's once again check in with Gary Kamiya, penning this "confession," self-justified though it is, in Salon after the fall of Baghdad:

"I have a confession: I have at times, as the war has unfolded, secretly wished for things to go wrong. Wished for the Iraqis to be more nationalistic, to resist longer. Wished for the Arab world to rise up in rage. Wished for all the things we feared would happen. I'm not alone: A number of serious, intelligent, morally sensitive people who oppose the war have told me they have had identical feelings.

"Some of this is merely the result of pettiness -- ignoble resentment, partisan hackdom, the desire to be proved right and to prove the likes of Rumsfeld wrong, irritation with the sanitizing, myth-making American media. That part of it I feel guilty about, and disavow. But some of it is something trickier: It's a kind of moral bet-hedging, based on a pessimism not easy to discount, in which one's head and one's heart are at odds."

The liberals keep claiming that these sorts of feelings don't exist. When confronted with statements like this one, they allow that such feelings exist, but are restricted to a tiny unbalanced fringe of lunatics. (Oddly enough, many members of this tiny fringe of lunatics seem to have permanent salaried positions in high-visibility mainstream media outfits, as well as in the Democrat Party.)

You combine these admissions with Marshall waving the bloody shirt over the fact that we caught a very high ranking Al Qaeda leader -- sad news for the nation indeed! -- and you tell me these people put the security of their country above getting their precious fucking liberals back into the White House.

Anti-American Minds Think Alike: No one ever accused Oliver Willis of possessing an overly-inventive mind.

Except when it comes to Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, of course. I have it on good authority that it was this brilliant thinker that thought of putting that little wedge of cheese on the Filet-O-Fish sandwich.

And this is the same asshole that's forever complaining, in his "cute" turn of phrase of which he's tremendously proud, of the "Right Wing Wurlitzer Machine," whatever that could possibly mean, parroting the day's official political talking points. But of course he's only too happy to ape Marshall's latest conspiracy theories.

I salute you, you obnoxious ovoid. You've got the triple-crown: You're you're untalented, you're unoriginal, and you're viciously hypocritical.

You've done a man's job. Why don't you reward yourself with a nice feedbag of White Castles?
