Oh give me a break, Steve Kelley, with your snowflake whining and crying about a “liberal media” being Biden’s lapdog.
The fact that one candidate keeps swinging and missing and getting maimed by self-inflicted wounds and the other keeps hitting them out of the park does NOT mean one is getting soft balls or there is some kind of “liberal media.” It means one has his eye on the ball and is a competent player and the other is clearly out of his league.
NO! There is NO “LIBERAL MEDIA.” The idea of the “liberal” media is a MYTH — a lie — concocted by the Republican Trumpubli-puppets at Faux “News.”
All of the mass media — every TV outlet, cable or internet provider, radio station or newspaper, no exceptions — is owned by very wealthy elitist corporations or individuals, and they get to dictate content. Not “liberal” media, but CORPORATE CONservative “media.”
ABC, CBS, NBC, New York Times, Washington Post and, yes, CNN are all owned by very wealthy individuals, corporations and special interests. THEY ARE THERE TO PROTECT THEIR ELITIST PRIVILEGE. THEY ARE CONSERVATIVE.
But at least they do aspire to some basic normative standards for balanced, objective news coverage. But, to the extent that it comes down to protecting the bottom line, THEY ARE WEALTHY BILLIONAIRES and their bias is protecting their elitist privilege. THAT IS NOT LEFTIST.
They may be liberal on some social issues, and support basic competence in government as preferable to incompetent blowhards (and some individual reporters and commentators may be individually liberal — after all, they are working people), but their corporate bosses (who get to set operational policy and editorial viewpoint) are extremely conservative on matters of fiscal and economic policy as they seek to protect their elite status and continue their class warfare against working people. (If you ever doubt this, look at how any newspaper covers a strike by its own workers.)
I guess the news media, like the rest of us, is just ready to have something other than an a-hole, mythomaniacal traitor to focus on.
Does SKELLEY live in St. Petersburg?
Maybe they treat him like an ordinary person because he IS an ordinary person, rather than treating him like a lying sociopath? Maybe when he answers questions, the probability that he’s flat out lying is … small instead of being nearly 100%? Maybe he doesn’t call them nasty names, so they respond in kind?
Maybe Kelley doesn’t understand how that could be possible unless there’s some kind of conspiracy?
Kelly and his fellow conservative cartoonists are happy to vote a child abuser for another four years.
See, Steve, the thing is that reporters deal in facts, and so does Joe. Right wingers deal in lies, misdirection, and hoaxes (which they created). That’s why you think they like Biden. But you see, that truth thing …. that is a GOOD thing. You should try it.
Steve is getting pretty desperate these days. When your guy is going down in flames, accuse the media of going easy on the other guy. As if that’ll work on anyone with eyes, ears, and a brain. (What are three things Kelley seems to be lacking?)
Any balanced and objective coverage of reality is seen as extremely unfair by the Republicans.
Hey Steve-o…Idi na khuy sebya!!!
Just a guess, but you’ve got an IV bottle hooked up to FOX News, right? Right? C’mon, just admit it, you’ll feel better. Therrrre you go.
We see you.
Trump, in his nasty bed of lies, with his trusty hound, the Fake News Media.
Even the real news people (not the commentators) at Faux maintain journalistic standards. Which is probably why they’re cutting the news division, the truth doesn’t bring in enough profit.
Eeek, you’v uncovered a plot that isn’t. Tell me Stevereeno, if the Prez had attacked YOU poisonally and in poisin, would you still be in favor of this lying SOB? Oh, I forgot, you are a republican. Tou’d probably be asking for more.
trump just announced his unredacted recent interview will show the world the truth.. A page right out of North Korea’s Kim Jong-un play book.
Can’t wait to watch the final Presidential Debate and watch Trump with his mic turned off for a full two minutes . . .
Gee, I thought it was perfectly on target. Thanks Steve!
If the new media is like a lapdog of Joe Biden, then why is this same news media not giving him the coverage that is being lavished on Trump? It’s more likely the reason is that new media follows the latest sensationalistic story and Trump provides that daily.
That’ll earn you points with Q-Anon at least. However, anyone with a modicum of critical thinking skills will giggle.
Kelley just likes to watch some people set their hair on fire….it’s a favorite pasttime with Democrats these days….
Is Kelley trying to say something about the “newspaper” that features him?
I agree that the press in general has a liberal bias. However, currently the press is like a lot of people: Anti Trump not pro Biden.
In the final weeks of the presidential campaign, Joe Biden has labeled Hunter Biden’s emails as a “smear” campaign against him, and Democrats like Adam Schiff have accused these reports of being linked to a Russian intelligence operation, even though intelligence officials have said there’s no evidence that this is true.
Here is Bobulinski’s statement in full (emphasis ours):
My name is Tony Bobulinski. The facts set forth below are true and accurate; they are not any form of domestic or foreign disinformation. Any suggestion to the contrary is false and offensive. I am the recipient of the email published seven days ago by the New York Post which showed a copy to Hunter Biden and Rob Walker. That email is genuine.
This afternoon I received a request from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance requesting all documents relating to my business affairs with the Biden family as well as various foreign entities and individuals. I have extensive relevant records and communications and I intend to produce those items to both Committees in the immediate future.
I am the grandson of a 37 year Army Intelligence officer, the son of a 20+ year career Naval Officer and the brother of a 28 year career Naval Flight Officer. I myself served our country for 4 years and left the Navy as LT Bobulinski. I held a high level security clearance and was an instructor and then CTO for Naval Nuclear Power Training Command. I take great pride in the time my family and I served this country. I am also not a political person. What few campaign contributions I have made in my life were to Democrats.
If the media and big tech companies had done their jobs over the past several weeks I would be irrelevant in this story. Given my long standing service and devotion to this great country, I could no longer allow my family’s name to be associated or tied to Russian disinformation or implied lies and false narratives dominating
After leaving the military I became an institutional investor investing extensively around the world and on every continent. I have traveled to over 50 countries. I believe, hands down, we live in the greatest country in the world.
What I am outlining is fact. I know it is fact because I lived it. I am the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings which was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family. I was brought into the company to be the CEO by James Gilliar and Hunter Biden. The reference to “the Big Guy” in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden. The other “JB” referenced in that email is Jim Biden, Joe’s brother.
Hunter Biden called his dad ‘the Big Guy’ or ‘my Chairman,’ and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing. I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.
I realized the Chinese were not really focused on a healthy financial ROI. They were looking at this as a political or influence investment. Once I realized that Hunter wanted to use the company as his personal piggy bank by just taking money out of it as soon as it came from the Chinese, I took steps to prevent that from happening.
The Johnson Report connected some dots in a way that shocked me — it made me realize the Bidens had gone behind my back and gotten paid millions of dollars by the Chinese, even though they told me they hadn’t and wouldn’t do that to their partners.
I would ask the Biden family to address the American people and outline the facts so I can go back to being irrelevant — and so I am not put in a position to have to answer those questions for them.
I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew con
I don’t have a political ax to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned with what I saw. The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.
God Bless America!!!!
Littleann, Nothing you printed makes #45 look like he should be reelected. #45 has done far worse. If any of this is correct, or not, I expect republicans to hold 47+hearings to prove it.
Trumpers always think that it’s not fair that they can’t get away with crap, because the media “rats them out”… to Trumpers nothing is unethical or illegal if they’re not caught – so it’s not their fault that they do crap instead it’s the fault of people who catch and expose them… even when they do crap on live TV – during press conferences that they’ve called themselves – it’s still the media’s fault for how they embarrass themselves…
The corporate owned mass media Leftist?? Puhleeze
I think we should have a modicum of mercy on Kelley. It’s a damn tough job to try to make Trump look good when the creature himself is doing his best to look like a raving fool and succeeding quite well.
^ @jack666 – Show Kelley as much empathy as the COVID-Spreader-in-Chief has shown to the 220,000+ prematurely dead Americans and their families!
It must be a tough life for cartoonist who bet their lives on Rump. It’s going to be 4 long years, at least…
The press goes easy on Trump, just wait until he is no longer president, they will call out his criminal ways.
As for me I only believe the news I see in Murdock’s tabloids, yup yup yup.
Hunter is dead man walking
