News Nuggets

News Nuggets:

*Don’t believe in mainstream media bias? ABC, CBS, and NBC donated a combined 2,202 minutes of airtime, or nearly 37 hours, to the “Russian collusion probe” between January 21, 2017 and February 19, 2019, according to NewsBusters. Yet, after the Senate Intelligence Committee announced it had found no material evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign/administration and Russia, none of the three networks gave it even a single second of coverage over the next two days. Not. One. Single. Second.

*Still don’t believe in mainstream media bias? CNN recently ran an analysis piece claiming that President Trump was peddling “unsubstantiated hope” in regards to the coronavirus health crisis. That heartless bastard! A true leader should fill his people with fear, despair and hopelessness! Not so long ago, a Democratic president told an unsettled nation mired in the depths of a depression, “All we have to fear is fear itself.” He was rightly and universally lauded for this. The media at the time did not accuse him of peddling “unsubstantiated hope.”
*Speaking of CNN, this headline, from, has to be the most callous of all: “There’s an unlikely beneficiary of coronavirus: The planet.” The more people who die, the better for Mother Earth. Yay!
*Speaking of headlines, I came across this one recently: “China exonerates late doctor reprimanded for warning about coronavirus.” Funny, seems like it is a lot easier for a Communist government to “exonerate” people after they are dead.
*House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) badmouthed the coronavirus stimulus proposal recently released by Senate Republicans, saying it was too focused on helping businesses rather than those who lose their jobs (because of reactions to the outbreak). Earth to morons: why and when do numbers of people typically lose their jobs? I’ll answer that. Why? Because the companies they work for go out of business.  When? When those companies go out of business. Moreover, when companies go out of business, we also suffer the loss of the often vital products and services they alone provide. How the hell did Pelosi and Schumer get their jobs?
