Thank goodness a good dry rub enhances the meat, and is not dependent on any lefty billionaires. Though being slow does not hurt the meat. https://i0.wp.com/bitsandpieces.us/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Meanwhile-at-the-market…-575×631.jpg Deplorable B Woodman Apr 07 2018 at 12:19 am I will wait for the day when the NYSlime goes bankrupt and is sold. Then I will put in my bid of $1.50. Ok, ok, $2.50. But that’s my top and final offer JackDeth 72 Apr 07 2018 at 4:57 am And all in pennies! WayneM Apr 07 2018 at 1:07 am Canada’s Dear Leader has proposed providing corporate welfare for the Lamestream Media to prevent them from collapsing. Gee, I wonder if that will buy him more tongue-baths like they gave him during the last election? JackDeth 72 Apr 07 2018 at 2:19 am Wait… What? There’s a narrative? Good day to you, Mr. Muir: It’s so nice to see that you have many perspectives and points of view for your loyal and appreciative oglers…. I mean. readers! Bill Apr 07 2018 at 2:42 am Yes he’s doing a crack job with the story line. Lucius Severus Pertinax Apr 07 2018 at 2:37 am Jan… in a word… Yum. eon Apr 07 2018 at 5:53 am Journalism died decades ago. From Walter Duranty’s paeans to Hitler and Stalin to Walter Cronkite lying about the Vietnam War to convince us we were losing it in quest of a Communist Triumph, American journalism has sold its soul to every force of evil it could find, simply because journalism schools have always been political indoctrination academies run by radicals, which attract other radicals. And it probably got no more than two bits for the deal. Today, journalism is simply the propaganda arm of the left. Which means anything they say on any subject may be safely assumed to be a lie, since the “progressive” dogma is built on same. Never assume a “journalist” is telling the truth. Get the facts for yourself. It’s not that hard today. clear ether eon NotYetInACamp Apr 07 2018 at 7:12 am – ” Today, journalism is simply the propaganda arm of the left.

Get the facts for yourself. It’s not that hard today.” – Today, and maybe for a few more days, we have the entire independent press that, in fact by way of camera phones, is most of the people of the earth now. (AYIIIII, another globalist and populist comment!) providing raw facts, person comments, expert analysis, and deliberate spin , all for us to use in figuring out what is factual, and what will achieve actual good rather than the perception managed good provided by the progressives and their ilk which resulted in the removal of “contemptible dominating regimes” across North Africa and The Middle East that resulted in the planned major advancement of the invasion and genocide that is proceeding against Western Civilization across Europe, the USA, Australia, Africa, aw, let’s just say the entire world. Such Western Civilization and similar cultures are all slated to be replaced by “controllable drones” that will live in poverty based sh*tholes where rights, freedom, and human advancement have no concern due to those forcing their control over the areas. Power will be based upon conformity to the ruling class’ desires, however they are expressed. Power and might will make right and rule with its natural impunity. A World Dark Age is facing us. And many psychopaths and sociopaths rejoice. We still stand. We still fight. We still appreciate where to properly bury the lede. We still appreciate where to properly bury the lead. We still appreciate properly facts and truth, and their value and use. And, I hope and pray, we still appreciate properly when. GWB Apr 07 2018 at 8:37 am A World Dark Age? Nooooo. It will be a Brave New World! GWB Apr 07 2018 at 8:34 am I’m going to use a different perspective, eon…. Instead consider that the press has always been biased. From the time of the first printed broadsheets, they’ve all had an angle. Always. What changed, for a time, was the culture. With the advent of progressivism, the media made an effort at portraying themselves as simply the purveyors of truth. The people were sold on the idea that somehow these partisan shills had been turned into objective observers of all around them, and only wrote the truth, rather than picking and choosing the “truth” they reported. Somehow, the people were sold on the idea that power was bad and therefore anyone “speaking truth to power” must be fair, accurate, and balanced. The difficulty with the current trend toward more open sources is that the people (some large portion of them) still seem to believe in this mythic standard of journalistic non-bias. They just don’t believe it’s being met. So, when someone comes along who looks fair and even-handed (*couFOXgh*) they will shift their undying devotion to that someone and get fooled all over again. @ NYIAC, the plethora of “independent” journalists doesn’t guarantee diddly or squat. A lot of those “independent” journalists are like the Palestinians being used as propaganda tools for the anti-Israel cause. There’s a lot more cray-cray “journalism” on youTube than there is real reporting. “Democratizing” journalism provides a lot more poo to sift through than it does bigger nuggets of gold. But, yes, it DOES provide those bigger nuggets – even a few outright diamonds. Why do people stick with “professional” sources? Because they really don’t like sifting through all the poo. For most, it’s just not important enough to put on their waders and waste a lot of time digging about. Most people hire someone to clean out their septic tank – and most want to be on a sewer line. Throw on top of that my point about that myth of objective journalism, and folks will rationalize their trust in those folks. There’s not a totally objective reporter out there. If there is, he’s a sociopath, laying waste about himself, wielding every single fact as a blunt instrument. There are good ones, that are very objective (while also retaining their humanity*), and good ones that lay bare their biases so you can judge. But, in every case, YOU will need to judge. (Which leads to a long rant about education, morals and culture.) (* Quite simply, not every fact needs to be known. The ones that are relevant do. And some are marginally relevant. Sometimes you don’t need to actually see the guy bleed out to understand the story.) John Apr 07 2018 at 3:25 pm The sad state of journalism is a direct result of its success. The only way to raise the standards of journalism is by way of having an audience with sufficiently high standards of Reason, and Reason is something the news media has been trying (successfully) to stamp out. The Media, and their advertisers, and their political favorites thrive when the audience is gullible, and their unholy alliance with Big Government has yielded a Government run school system where Critical Thinking is not only NOT taught but actively discouraged. Teachers have been fired for encouraging their students to think for themselves. I suppose we can take heart in the seeming collapse of the Left and their Post Modern Neo Marxist intersectionalist Tribalist Nihilism, but this will only be temporary if the “educators” who made them possible aren’t rooted out. What we need is a restoration to education of the 4th “R”. Not just Readin’, “rightin’, and “rithmatic, but the discipline the Founders knew and we have been robbed of, that is _Rhetoric_ the study of Logic and Persuasion. In a word, Reasoning. Deplorable B Woodman Apr 07 2018 at 10:55 am I keep playing this scenario…….if a presstitute comes up to me to ask me a question or an interview, I’d do my best to beat him up, then holler about he approached me in order to molest me. I doubt any presstitute would ever come up to me, but it’s best to be prepared, don’t you think? JTC Apr 07 2018 at 2:36 pm Odd that I recall that second Walter who so decried the effort to stave off the commies in se asia also was lapdog right to the end when their young prez whipped promised and planned support away from real deal Cuba American patriots (who were convicted of treason on this date in ’62 and stuck in Cuban prison forever), ensuring tragic failure and creating the opening for Russia to make a run. He is then given credit for staring down communism single handedly when in truth the whole incredibly dangerous saga was unnecessary had the promised support been provided, Cuba might very well have been saved for its people on that day way back then instead of it being a crumbling shell and we’d still have the the bottom half of Fla instead of it being what Cuba coulda shoulda been (All part of the conspiracy narrative? I don’t put anything past those who so dearly want and promote the demise of the American Republic). Only God knows what other bumbles Kennedy might have committed in that later conflict where it was us who suffered untold loss from having lured our kids into that cesspool only to withhold the support and respect they deserved, and which might well have resulted in a different outcome…like victory. Oh well, his successors fucked it up well enough in his convenient absence. Bill G Apr 07 2018 at 7:38 am The elites in media, politic, and education have no understanding of what they are doing as they loose the ties on jihad. They look at their estates and their offices and their ivory towers, and believe these are the unchanging natural order of the world. The fact that they are among the first targeted is inconceivable to them. Just as it was inconceivable to those who died first after so many other takeovers.

Grunt GI Apr 07 2018 at 6:22 pm Truth. Old Codger Apr 08 2018 at 2:46 am “Callipygian” A truly marvelous word ranking right there with “Bathykolpian” (which ably describes the ladies of DBD). Speaking of the callipygian and bathykolpian ladies of the DD Ranch, one hopes to see them frolicking in the pond, all together in the altogether, soon. GWB Apr 08 2018 at 6:50 am With Q, too! JTC Apr 07 2018 at 12:24 pm And bet that any positive truths of Trump&Co. will be buried ledes. It’s an effective tool as much for online news vendors as paper ones, to post a negative headline and pics for a story that turns out to report actual good progress by our side. They know lefties will just take it as reinforcement of what they already “know”, and most of us will skip it thinking it’s just another hit piece…which it usually is but not always. As to burying things, I’m not sure how Damon is talking politics with that ass laying there doing what it’s doing there. gruundehn Apr 07 2018 at 4:10 pm Years ago, reporters were middle-class or working-class (blue-collar) people who learned the trade through OJT. That died out when reporters went for pure professional white-collar status and went to journalism school. Who needs a college degree in order to ask questions or do research? Only a fool. Spin Drift Apr 07 2018 at 5:52 pm Has the Drudge Report finally made the last step to the dark side? The number of linked Yahoo News articles is rising. I know he is a homo that is afraid that DJT is going to criminalize sodomy. Butt really, will this end up with rather unique pulled pork recipes? Asking for a friend. Spin As Twain said, “if you don’t read the papers, you’re ill informed and if you do, you’re misinformed.” cmblake6 Apr 07 2018 at 11:28 pm Boom.
