    Not even a good lesson for children since the lamestream media aren’t contrite or accepting responsibility.

    • GWB

      Oh, they make for a good bad example. “Don’t grow up to be like them, my children.”

      Of course, “growing up” already removes some of that curse…….

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    “So American media ethics are an appropriate example for children?”

    Yes, as an example of bad behavior on all levels.
    “This is what you DON’T do!”

    • Chris Muir

      yup

    • Swansonic

      You know its gotten bad when the antics of Miley Cyrus start looking respectable by comparison…..

    • Pete in NC

      Not so much of an example FOR children as an example OF children, and evil ones at that!

  • Deplorable B Woodman

    Willie Nelson needs to work this into his song,

    “Mama, don’t let your babies grow up to be journos,
    Don’t let ’em hold cameras and notebooks and such….”

    As the twig is bent, so grows the tree.

    Little Nikolai, such a cutie.

  • These overgrown children, who haven’t gotten out of mental kindergarten and probably never will, all have wet dreams of being the next Woodward or Bernstein.
    Unfortunately, they aren’t nearly that smart, and there is no Nixon. They missed the point that it is HILLARY CLINTON who is more corrupt than a barrel of rotten cumquats.
    Sorry, kids, no free cheese today.

    That’s just about perfect since the average reading level of the United States is slightly above grade 5. At that level people cannot discern opinion from fact.

    • NotYetInACamp

      YIKES! I passed that by grade 1.

      i got marked down in conduct for reading more advanced books in class. I never got on the honor roll because of that or won any of the class awards or was presented them at the school assembly, though I was always in orbit above them while they could not get off the ground.
      Looking back, that has been a problem all of my life. Even when I tried to take the family into orbit, they got scared of me and kicked me out because they were afraid of losin what was simply the first step in wealth creation.
      Certain parts of life suck.
      Few in the press have been competent, but they used to be more honest than politicians.
      I know a Pulitzer Prize winning progressive journalist and his wife, both of whom are honest, if misguided on some issues. They have both done good things in this world. I am the only conservative they would ever invite to their home and table for an enjoyable meal. Not all fit the common mold.

        There’s a book called “The curse of the high IQ “,written just for you!
        I have always held to the philosophy,that I don’t have conversations with dumb people,cause it allows them to think that they are as intelligent as me.I won’t give them that satisfaction.

        • JTC

          And then there are those extremely highly educated ones, who I have said as NYIAC knows, are some of the dumbest people I’ve ever met. They are fun to toy with though.

          • JTC

            Not NYIAC though, I should have made that clear. Has the papers, but still gifted with common sense and practical knowledge. My point was about those (highly weighted toward progs in my experience) who equate education with innate intelligence.

      • Kafiroon

        Even good teachers are overloaded with the “slow learners”. Half way through 2nd. grade the teacher who always was busy trying to help children read, took me aside and said I needed to read a passage for her. She was going to have to send me to a “slow learners” class. So I read it. Then she got a more advanced book. Then she asked why I could never read in class. I told her I always read the whole book immediately while she was working with others. I never had any idea where they were when she called on me, busy looking out the windows dreaming.

    • Pamela

      Lord helps us. Yikes.

    That’s why we have parental controls on television. While you’re gone shopping, they might be watching ABC news.

    • GWB

      Heh. Don’t let the village babysit your child!

      • doc

        That would be don’t let the village idiot(s) babysit your child

  • Not even then. Not even then. Decent parents teach their children that this is wrong.

    • The LSM is the perfect example of what NOT to do.

  • Blue Quasar

    If kids know what news media is the parents are probably letting them watch too much television.

  • Bill G

    The DMC is also showing they’re stuck in the age of bathroom humor.

    • WayneM

      Everyone laughs at a fart joke… Some never get past the gas that is passed.

  • Old Codger

    The LSM are that you CAN ask a dumb question. I remember back during the active phase of Desert Shield/Storm when Rumsfeld was at a press briefing. Several times various “journalists” asked Rummy when the war would be over. Each time he patiently replied “When it’s over” which I understood to mean that nobody knew. One time I can see someone asking that but they must have asked him the question four or five times! To me, asking the same question over and over is dumb. Any instance of asking that question after the first was asking a dumb question.

    But, now that I think of it, that could be considered evidence of insanity. Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” I suppose Michael Savage is right and liberalism truly IS a mental disorder.

    • Old Codger

      I intended the first sentence above to read;
      “The LSM are proof that you CAN ask a dumb question.

      (darned lack of an edit button)

    • Heeheehee! (gigglesnort)

  • JTC

    What’s a little scary is that the young ‘uns might have gotten some of their methods of extrapolation and imagination from the lamestream, but they got their inspiration directly from the real-life source.

    Sam’s not just a good Mama for keeping her kids away from bad electronic examples, but from flesh ‘n blood ones as well. “See Auntie Skye? Do NOT act like her!”

  • Old Codger

    OT I figured you guys could use a good laugh. Here is graphic evidence of how utterly f**ked up our public education is these days”

    I especially liked the one where one young woman wasn’t sure the daughter she bore was hers.

    • Kafiroon

      Were Doomed! The people are too freaking stupid to live.

  • PaulS

    Delilah,

    I’m not sure the LSM will focus on this first lady, as the inevitable “Who would you rather wake up to?” (with morning type photos) would be presented, and “The most stunning” myth would be BUSTED! 😉

    Reality is cruel to the meme creationists.

  • Ugh. So gossiping is bad, but prancing around in one’s 50s with underboob showing in some sort of barbecue Hooters is perfectly acceptable?

    • JTC

      I hear there are some guys to whom beautiful boobs and for that matter beautiful women, are not appealing. They are typically some sort of freak. But that might be just a rumor. 😉

    • Chris Muir

      Prancing around with MAJOR underboob is rather more accurate.

    • Pamela

      How about at 61 (I actually look early 50’s) wearing a sarong everyday writing erotica…

    • Kafiroon

      Those misguided children are the only reason our wee delicate snowflakes can sit safely in their “higher education compounds” and denigrate everyone else.

      • Pamela

        I’ll take them any day of the week over the snowflakes

    For those of you that keep complaining about the lack of an edit button, just compose your post in Word, or Notepad, then after proofing it, copy and paste it into the comment window. This window has a spellcheck, but not a composition check.

    Jan is a quick-change artist. I like the second dress, if any.

    Off-topic, but very cool and directly related to what we here care about so much:

    My son having grown up in the estate jewelry and firearms businesses, is now at 32 a very accomplished custom jeweler (The Jewelry Doctor) in Palm Beach Gardens FL. He’s had several semi-famous customers come to him in his unassuming but highly reviewed shop for difficult or intricate repairs (Miss Florida, Susan Lucci, Dr. Ben Carson, several well-known golfers) and crap-tons of loaded retirees tooling up in their Bentleys, Aston Martins, even a hot 70-year old in her hubby’s new Lamborghini, many with rings or watches worth as much as a house, he schmoozes ’em, they love him, and they entrust their high-value heirloom pieces to him for repairs and restoration. But today…

    Today a customer brought him a button. Not even a gold button. Just a stylized brass button that had its attaching loop broken off, and because son uses a high-tech laser welder, mostly becauses it’s pinpoint fusion won’t transfer heat that can harm fragile gems, but also because unlike the traditional jewelers torch, it easily handles the properties of platinum, silver, and non-traditional metals…like brass.

    And this particular brass button is from the jacket presented by Ronald Reagan for his inauguration to Richard Feldman, a Reagan adviser and appointee to the Commerce Dept. and then later Executive Director of the American Shooting Sports Council, former National Rifle Association Regional Director, and author of the widely acclaimed book – Ricochet: Confessions of a Gun Lobbyist, and now President and CEO of the Independent Firearm Owners Association and legal advisor to Global Digital Solutions, heavily involved in the guidance of high-tech cyber arms manufacturing.

    The button is embossed “Inauguration of President and Vice President Reagan and Bush.” I wish I knew how to post the text picture here that he sent me a few minutes ago to share with y’all. It’s not worth anything, but like I told him in reply, “It’s as precious a thing as you’ve ever had entrusted to your care in your shop.”

    Like I said, very cool. I’m pretty proud of him, that such a figure would have been referred to him to repair, but even more so that he recognizes and appreciates the significance of what it represents. At his age, that’s pretty rare I think, and perfectly in line with the understanding and sentiment of the text he sent me late on election night: “Wow, we might have just been given a new chance to help save America and the world.”
