Hysterical Headlines (funny or absurd) for May 30th:
Bottom Line: I've ID'd some in the media as generally being Godless, soulless and slanderous (ok, so the Godless/soulless thing is a theory... The slanderous part - that's pretty real). I've decided to grab some of the most outrageous headlines to illustrate the point of just how outrageous it's become. Here are today's examples:
- Republicans' 7-point win in last night's Montana election is great news for Democrats - VOX
- It’s All About Trump’s Contempt - NY Times
- CA Ready to Recognize 3rd Gender. Is the Rest of America? - Buzzfeed
- Welcome Back to Your Swamp, Mr. President - Bloomberg
So a GOP candidate channels his inner Bam Bam Biggelow on a reporter the night before a special election, the Libertarian candidate nets nearly 6% of the vote, the WWE Republican wins & it's a good night for Democrats!?
(Info about most elected Republicans since 1920 - media's role and their lack of importance)
Once again the New York Times is hung up on the President's budget. They just can't imagine how it could ever work. There are a number of reasons...But it starts with their inability to comprehend 3% growth
Wasn't there a time (pretty recently) when someone would be offended if you couldn't figure out if they were a man or a woman?
And then there's obligatory story about how the President should be afraid...very afraid because those investigating the Russian fiasco aren't going to be a kind as the Saudi's. Since Allen Hunt at Bloomberg & co. already know that Trump's guilty - I guess that's all that matters. Here's my favorite line from the slanderous hit piece: Evidence so far is only circumstantial. Yet there's plenty
Well shoot that's good enough for me I guess...
