Bias? What Bias?

It is really unfair to suggest that our news media leans to the Left. That implies that the media is in the middle. The news media long ago gave up any pretense of neutrality or even-handedness. There is exactly ONE conservative news network. There is another one that is in the middle, but because the rest of the media is way out on the lunatic fringe Left, they look like they are right-wingers.

There are several Left-wing news divisions plus two far-left news networks. Then there is NPR. There is conservative talk radio, and maybe one conservative newspaper. Last but not least, there are some Right-wing news outlets on the internet.

How big is the imbalance? Conservatives still have a presence on Facebook and Twitter, but Leftists OWN Facebook and Twitter. In the Age of Cyberspace, the only place that conservatives have a strong presence is on the radio. And the Left is constantly seeking to shut down the few voices that remain. Movies? Television? Music? Fuhgeddaboutit.

The Left’s domination of the flow of information allows them to spin, misinform, and lie with impunity. Here’s yesterday’s editorial from John Diaz, editor of the SF Chronicle:

Yet there was another factor lurking in the air that could have a more profound effect on the 2020 Democratic primary: the impeachment inquiry involving President Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine’s president to investigate front-runner Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

While there is no evidence that the Bidens broke any law, Trump and his surrogates have been pounding a counterattack that there must be something corrupt in the son being paid $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian natural gas company. For all the flaws in the conspiracy theories — or the hypocrisy of Trump trying to fault anyone else’s kids for trading on a powerful father’s name — the drumbeat against Biden could have a negative effect on his campaign. Some voters may accept the GOP talking points uncritically, some may be unclear on the details but nevertheless suspicious, and some may simply be exhausted by the continuous loop of allegations and investigations and be ready for a fresh face.

There was no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia, but that didn’t stop Robert Mueller from hounding the President for almost three years. In all that time I saw countless articles about Russian collusion. Do you know how many times I saw a sentence like this one?:

While there is no evidence that the Trumps broke any law . . .

I saw routine disclaimers like that ZERO times. Trump was presumed guilty. Guilty of everything. As far as Leftists are concerned, Trump is the personification of mens rea. His intentions are all bad. That’s how we know if Trump does something good he was doing it for the wrong reasons.

Joe Biden is the exact opposite of Trump. Joe Biden cannot tell a lie. Joe is such an all-around good guy that the dirtiest word Joe knows is “malarky.” Joe loves people. Especially kids. It can truly be said that Joe Biden has touched more lives than any other Senator in history.

The first time I read this I doublechecked to make sure I wasn’t reading The Onion of Babylon Bee:

While there is no evidence that the Bidens broke any law, Trump and his surrogates have been pounding a counterattack that there must be something corrupt in the son being paid $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian natural gas company.

If you’re like me, $50,000 a month sounds like a lot of money.  But if you live in Washington DC (like Hunter Biden) or San Francisco (like John Diaz) where the cost of living is higher than Willie Nelson’s dog, you would know that $50,000 a month income won’t even qualify you to rent a studio apartment.  The best bet for SFians in that income bracket is to rent a parking space for their car and then live in their car.  Either that or commute from Nevada.

All the people making a big deal over Hunter Biden’s income are ignoring the obvious explanation:

Unless President Donald J. Trump pulls a hat out of a rabbit real soon, on 1/21/21 I will wake up in a socialist banana republic.

      Hunter goes to China with Joe. While Joe is busy doing diplomatic stuff, Hunter and his daughter do some sight-seeing just like regular tourists. It was totes a coinky-dink that Hunter met a Chinese billionaire and walked away with a deal to invest $1.5 BILLION thru Hunters brand new investment firm.

      Joe knew nothing about it. To this day they never discussed it.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Hard to believe, huh? What possibly could that billionaire be investing 1.5 billion in? And did Dad and Obama get their cuts? Oh dear, whatever am I implying? 😛

      • Somebody says:

        What? Nobody ever walked up to you while you were sight-seeing and asked you to invest a billion dollars? I thought that happened to everyone, especially tourist in Nigeria.

      love this…and I am very embarrassed by the fact that I actually voted for him…

        I know I’ve been apologizing for that vote as well. I feel I was so anti-obama that I didn’t think of writing in a name in 2012. Shame on me.

          That election was so bad that I voted for Julie Stein and felt good about it!

          I voted for Romney too however if I had written anyone in I would have probably written in Hillary soooooo……

        #MeToo. How do you lose an election that a potted plant could have won against Obama ? Romney never punched back against the horrible things the left threw at him 😦

    If “journalists” were cops:

    “911 operator. What is your emergency?”
    “I think my neighbor just murdered his wife!”
    “Do you have any proof?”
    “Uh, no. But I heard screaming and some gunshots.”
    “So you have no proof.”
    “Shouldn’t you send some cops to check it out?”
    “Not without evidence. All you have is a conspiracy theory.”

    • Somebody says:

      But operator one of my neighbors is Donald Trump, although he’s currently in DC.

      “We’ll send someone right over”

      BREAKING NEWS! POTUS implicated in domestic dispute that turned fatal.

      What did POTUS know and when did he know it?

      How DJT caused Betty Sue’s death

      DJT callously ignored screams and gunshots coming mere feet from his posh NYC Penthouse

      Democrats…..we’ve got him now and where’s his tax returns?

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        If the French had sent an army to America in 1776 the Brits would have seen our war for independence as an extension of their longstanding conflict with France. Imagine Britain and France fighting a war in the American colonies, with us as bystanders in our own independence war. We would have been vassals to the winner.

  11. DeniseVB says:

    This is good follow, truly independent journalism that favors Trump by reporting the truth.

      The Chinese took that from Japan’s “Business is war” operations manual. “Spend lots of money on advertising, and spread it around. When the American media is hooked on your advertising dollars, you own them.”

      And since China is not a free country, they don’t have to ask anyone to join their boycotts, they just tell them.

      Back in the 80’s one network did a show about a Saudi princess who was executed for adultery. The next day after it aired the Saudis raised the price of oil.

    Hunter Biden is no different than the Trump children, trading on Daddy’s name. Except of course the Trump children worked for their father in the family business, oh wait…….I guess Hunter did too, Bribeden Inc., Corrupt Politicians R Us, Quid Pro Joe and Sons.

    • Cisco says:

      “Small,non-sequentially serial numbered unmarked bills, USC only” is the Biden business motto.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      true lol

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      If the Trump kids (Don Jr. Eric, Ivanka, Tiffany, and Barron) want to try to cash in on the Trump name, more power to them. But if they want to cash in on the fact that their dad is POTUS, that would be wrong.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think one of the older boys had a St Jude charity that he raised funds for with 100% of the profits went directly to St. Jude’s. Unlike that money laundering operation that the Clintons run. Somehow the Dems found it a conflict of interest and made him shut it down. He was raising millions a year for the sick kids 😦

      • Somebody says:

        That was sort of my point. The Trump name/brand has been a known quantity for decades. In addition to that the older three kids have worked for their father in the family business for years, long before he was POTUS. That doesn’t stop people from complaining, they act as if there were no Trump properties until DJT was elected 🙄

        The Biden’s had no such legitimate business. Joe has been a, cough, “public servant” for 50 years.

    “After months of battling pancreatic cancer, Alex Trebek is hinting that his long tenure as host of “Jeopardy!” may be nearing an end.

    Trebek told CTV he has begun to get sores inside his mouth from the chemotherapy, which makes it difficult to enunciate. He sometimes hears himself slurring his words on the quiz show, he said.

    “I will keep doing it (the show) as long as my skills do not diminish, and they have started to diminish,” he told CTV’s Lisa LaFlamme in an interview Friday.
