The Morning Rant

"With the USS Jussie Smollet now run aground on Bullshit Island, the media has spent the last few days is hightailing it for the tall grass. As ace discussed yesterday, Brian 'Melon-Head' Stelter on CNN's show 'Reliable Sources' is now claiming that the bogus story was pushed mainly by 'celebrities', but the media reported it with the skepticism it properly deserved. Stop laughing, he actually said this. The claim was thoroughly falsified on social media within minutes of him saying it, but that's not the issue. The larger issue is that Brian Stelter, one of the dumbest men on the planet, has a show. On CNN. And the name of the show is 'Reliable Sources.' Think about that for a minute: Brian Stelter. Reliable Sources. CNN. In order to put that sentence together, I had to apply to the federal government to tap into our country's Strategic Irony Reserves. They're practically depleted now."



This. Is CNN:

Please feel free to copy requests which you see on the board and send them to me. I am unable to be on the board all the time, even though it seems like I am, and so if people don’t tell me about prayer requests I may have no way of knowing. Thx and God bless!
