I’m getting really fed up with these media people who won’t face reality. If you let Trump’s gang continue to abuse you, you deserve to be abused. Stand up and fight back. Don’t just take it and whine about it, then go right back and get abused again.

The easy thing for Acosta to do would be to stop reporting on them. The fact that he not only pesters Sanders, but goes to Trump rallies, where he’s harassed, to me is a positive. I think she should be asked questions like this repeatedly.

I can’t agree - I don’t think it would be easy for any of these people to stop reporting on the Trump gang, because the bean counters at media companies expect them to maintain their access and keep generating content for them to sell. They’re under tremendous pressure to let themselves keep being abused.

It would be much harder for the media to make a decision to stop covering these phony press events — that would take real courage because it involves money.

I’m frankly surprised that we haven’t done just that.

These press conferences wouldn’t go away if WaPo, NYT, CNN, etc. pulled out. We’d be left with FOX (though, in a break, the FOX reporter refused to follow her “Don’t ask about interference” request), Breitbart, and a few others. Then we’d get questions like “How was the president’s breakfast?” and “How much longer will the president tolerate dissenting Democrats?”

I’m torn on the issue, personally, and because of that I tend to lean toward the idea of engaging them. We can’t get around the fact that Trump is president, and I’d rather have Sanders refusing to respond to questions than being pitched softballs.

Don’t hit their power grid. I wouldn’t do that.

No. What I’d hit is their cyber-infrastructure. Their networks - and of course, their financial system. Ideally, I’d want to unleash something akin to a Stuxnet virus into their banking and financial systems…..crash their economy, basically, or at least cause some extremely serious damage to it. Best case scenario, a catastophic financial crisis in Russia, akin to the crisis they experienced in 1998, which drove Russia into default.

That hurts them.

Chronicle of Higher Education sheds some light on dodgy journals:

These Professors Don’t Work for a Predatory Publisher. It Keeps Claiming They Do.

[…]

Years ago, Traynor, an interim dean and economics professor at Wright State University, learned that a journal was misusing his name online. On its website, the International Journal of Humanities and Social Science lists a range of scholars, including Traynor, on its editorial and international advisory boards.

But Traynor and other supposed board members contacted by The Chronicle said they’ve never been associated with the publication, nor did they grant it permission to use their names. A few have spent years attempting and failing to correct it. All the while, emails have trickled in to their inboxes from disgruntled submitters of papers, asking where their money went or why the edits were so paltry.

Predatory publishers — those that shirk rigorous peer review, seek out inexperienced researchers, and levy fees for authors to publish their own work — are nothing new. More than 400,000 papers have found homes in questionable journals, according to a Finnish researcher whose estimate was reported in The Economist.

[…]

Here’s the website the specific “journals” of the International Journal of Humanities and Social Science:
ijhssnet.com

Some really dodgy stuff in there. For example, here is one paper, “On the Evolution of Humanity: View from the “Ultron”-“Logotron” Theory”:

Which has such claims as:

Consequently, all things of the universe, ultrons of matter are secondary creation from logotrons of Cosmic Mind. The four known forces, gravitational force, electromagnetic force, and weak and strong nuclear forces are postulated to be different manifestations (contact forces) of mental force, mentalon that is inherent to logotrons, suggesting that particles and forces in the physical world are in essence products of logotrons. The inference in the ultron-logotron theory seems to possibly lead to the Theory of Everything (ToE) that has been long sought by physicists, scientists and philosophers. All things are created by mind (Buddha’s teaching) and the Word (the Bible, John 1:1-3).

[…]

It seems to possibly state that the creationism based on the Bible might be applicable in the realm of the inner/super self (spirit, the true self) of man and the Creator. Darwin’s evolutionism is applicable in the realm of
the physical self/body of man and the physical world (Chung, 2010). Both the creationism and evolutionism seem to be correct descriptions, each explaining specific different aspects of the universe.

All manner of badness gets a seal of approval by being “published”, and deceptive “journals” abound.

From the WaPo article—SO much wrong with this sentence alone:

The documentary draws comparisons between President Lincoln and President Trump, who recently granted D’Souza a full pardon, and sheds light on connections between the Democratic Party and the history of fascism and racism.

Calling it a “documentary” is immediately a stretch.

Saying it “sheds light on connections…” accepts that there are in fact such connections, which is a whole bunch of ongoing Dinesh D’Liar bullshit.

re: #101 Patricia Kayden

If the mainstream media was for real, that’s exactly what would happen. But unfortunately, the MSM can’t wean itself off Trump’s orange teat.

The problem is this: Trump is the president of the United States. As much as we would like for it not to be a thing, it is. As such, he wields power, and his and Sarah’s words have extra meaning because of that, whether or not the WaPo reports them, because Fox does.

We lament the weakening of the press, but the biggest reason Bush was able to do it was because of Fox. His words were going out, whether they were truthful or not, because Fox was going to report them. That puts the others in a bind. Yes, there is a bit of access issue involved, but a big reason is that the liars will get to say what they want, and have it put on TV, challenged or not.

And an extra problem is our president, and it goes like this:
InfoWars reporter: What are the presidents views on the recent altercations between Democrats and the police?
Sanders: Well, as the president’s said, he will do everything he can to keep Democrats from attacking the police.
*Next Day*
Fox: On the issue of Democrats attacking the police, let’s hear what the president said yesterday, via his press secretary.
Trump, 25 minutes later: I have told Sessions to come up with plans to provide additional monitoring of Democrat activists in response to the wave of attacks on the police.

The takeaways? It’s the Dem’s fault, or it’s all the ‘social spending’, or it’s because both parties spend too much, or it’s because we don’t have a Balanced Budget Amendment.

I mean, that’s great if they’re friends, but the woman’s a Rhodes scholar, for fuck’s sake. Todd is the political reporter equivalent of the kid eating paste in the corner. I just don’t get it.

I’ve noticed that often, journalists have a very different idea of who is a good journalist from what we laypeople think. For example, M*gg** H*b*r*m*n, whom other journalists routinely tell us is fantastically amazing. Or Andrea Mitchell, for that matter.

Now, there are a LOT of people we both hold in contempt. Sean Hannity, for example.

re: #187 Blind Frog Belly White

Is he? How’s that work?

He is Political Director for NBC News. That makes him head of that department so he has control of content and probably even figures in on talent.

Of course he is under the head of NBC News. He inherited that position from Tim Russert

The person doing Meet The Press is the head.

Edit: I see that the person to be on MTP on Sundays is not always the head of the department. But, often times is.

re: #188 Belafon

If I suddenly had a $21K watch, I’d sell it. If I had enough money that I could afford a $21K watch, I wouldn’t buy it anyway, because I don’t wear one.

I have two solid gold wristwatches, neither of which is worth even $1000*. I don’t wear either one very often, and when I do, I’m extremely conscious of them.

But, you know, if you have so much money that you spend $15,000 on an ugly jacket, a $21,000 watch isn’t that big a deal. It’s the same with cars - give me a new Bentley, and I’d sell it - after driving the long way to the dealer! But if I had enough money, the >$250,000 would not seem extreme.

*Both of them were Buy It Now listings on Ebay for under $60, because in both cases, the seller thought they were gold filled, not solid. In both cases, I could see the ‘14k Gold’ hallmark clearly in their pics, so I figured it was their problem.

Okay, let me see a show of hands. Does anyone believe Fredo EVER read EITHER the Democratic Party Platform OR the Nazi Party Platform?

Or, indeed, anything longer than a People Magazine profile of himself?

He read the People Magazine profile only because there were photos.

re: #183 wrenchwench

I think her definition of ‘feminism’ is based on her belief in self-promotion. After all, she is female, therefore it must be feminism. I don’t know where she gets ‘liberal’. Maybe by comparison, because she hangs around with rwnjs. Just speculation.

A quick Google shows her to specialize in appellate work and she’s won 33 of the 35 cases she’s argued before SCOTUS.
A couple of her clients: Philip Morris in overturning reinstatement of a $10 billion verdict, and the Washington Redskins in the long-running dispute with the government of the Team’s trademarks.

OK, maybe she likes to be paid liberally. I’m stumped.

re: #174 Mattand

So there’s an editorial on Politico Magazine right now titled “I’m a Liberal Feminist Lawyer. Here’s Why Democrats Should Support Judge Kavanaugh”, by a woman named Lisa Blatt.

On what fucking planet can you be a liberal feminist and support a judge who wants to gut Roe v. Wade as well as thinking that a President is basically above the law?

I mean, seriously, this is fucking performance art. It has to be.

I should read the article, but I’m sick of Politico’s Magic Balance Fairy wanking.

The GOP stole Garland’s seat, but we Democrats have to play by the rules and Kavanaugh’s a really nice guy, so we should let him strip women of their Constitutional rights.//

re: #28 makeitstop

I’m frankly surprised that we haven’t done just that.

This is war. Hire a bunch of black hats and pull down Russia’s power grid for a few weeks. Might even lead to the end of Putin.

You’re talking about killing people. Lots of people.

Might lead to much worse than the end of Putin.
