A meme that made its way around our sector back in February, while we’re supposed to be outraged about these kinds of things.  Click to enlarge.

Trump’s Luck

Atlanta

Just when some people start to feel some sympathy for CNN, they go and chuck it all out the window.

Thereby proving why our OCGE was right to tweet the wrestling meme originally found on Reddit.

 





Fake News Network

Atlanta

I’m so old that I remember when I was the only one who had a Fake News Network.  Speaking of, I haven’t done any parody news stories for a long time because the inspiration bug has missed me.

Anyway, on the back of the news that close to have of FNN’s Twitter followers are as fake as their “news,” it’s time for a music break.





Octo News

Manhattan

In news very important to octogenarians and older, the CBS Evening News will soon have a new anchor.

I think the last time I even watched a 5:30 over the air national network newscast was not long after 9/11.





Funny, I Once Asked the Same Question

27 03 2017

Rockville, Maryland

Media Research Center:

Just when you thought CNN host Brian Stelter couldn’t become any more of a “ridiculous figure” he found a new level of low to crawl to, during Sunday’s Reliable Sources. As had been extensively covered by the MRC, the liberal networks have been blacking out the rape of a girl on school ground by illegal immigrants in Rockville, Maryland, with Fox News being the only TV news outlet covering it in detail. But according to Stelter, that’s apparently a problem for Fox.

“Rapes and assaults and murders are local news stories on a daily basis. But when do they break through to become national news and when do they not?” he wondered at the top of the segment and before taking it to Fox.

One word:

Ferguson.





French Connection

O’Fallon Park

Antonio French, same age as your ever-lovin’ blogmeister, has been blogging for just about as long as I have.

And now, the P-D has endorsed him for Mayor.

Best I can figure, their reasoning is that among all the candidates, he gives the P-D Ed Board the feelz.

If not that, then they’re working an angle, that I can’t put rhyme or reason to right now.  I’ll kick myself when I figure it out.





Stray Voltage 2.0

24 01 2017

Washington, D.C.

I think I figured out Sean Spicer is up to with yammering about crowd sizes and TV ratings yesterday, and about illegal aliens voting and other illegally-cast votes today.

It’s a Trump-era reboot of the stray voltage maneuver that David Plouffe invented for (sorry, but I just can’t get enough of this phrase) (now-) former President Obama.

The difference is that Plouffe wanted to push an issue to the forefront of consciousness, to hell with the truth of the details.

I think what Orange-Crowned God-Emperor and Spicer are up to is that they’re creating diversions that they know the media will feast over, in order to clown them.
