May 17, 2019

Before you keep reading or glance at the chart, take this current events test…

A variant of that question was asked in the April Harvard-Harris Poll.  Specifically, the survey asked:

Bad week for the mainsteam media …

June 15, 2011

Can you imagine the collective angst of the mainstream media this past week?

First, after trying to ignore Weinergate, the story became too wild and salacious to ignore, So, the MSM had no choice but to air the lib loudmouth’s dirty linen.

Ouch.

Then, the MSM had to send reps to Juneau, Alaska to pick-up hard copies of 24,000 Palin emails.

Surely there has to be a mega-gotcha in the stack.

Nope.

Double ouch.

Then, a gaggle of GOP presidential hopefuls take the debate stage in New Hampshire for a circular firing squad.

But, wait ,,, instead of attacking each other, they pivot and aim at President Obama’s record on foreign affairs and jobs.

Come on GOP … fight fair.

Then, the NLRB hauls Boeing into court to try to stop the company from  opening a manufacturing plant in South Carolina — a right-to-work state.

Now, how to convince the lemmings that the Administration is all for  free enterprise and job creation?

What an awful week for news …
