Hysterical Media (Funny or Absurd) Headlines for July 24th:
Bottom Line: I've ID'd some in the media as generally being Godless, soulless and slanderous (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. For my commentary on these headlines click the audio below.
Jonathan Chait, New York Magazine
Erin Gloria Ryan, New York Times
Doyle McManus, LAT
Julian Zelizer, CNN
Tim Alberta & Zack Stanton, PoliticoHere's my favorite excerpt from the Politico piece:
“Presuming Kid Rock doesn’t get caught in bed with a little boy, or beat up a woman between now and August 2018, he’s going to win the nomination if he gets in,”
Who's mind naturally goes to that place? And is there also an implication that if Kid Rock were found in bed with a little girl that's be acceptable to the electorate in Michigan? It's pretty special...
The material here is amazing and wonderful in it's absurdity simultaneously. Once again, if you look at these through the prism of Donald Trump being President, and more elected Republicans serving in the United States since the 1920's...it's pretty hilarious! The air of desperation, advocacy and instructions for their "resistance" is comical. These people really do take themselves completely seriously!
