FUN TIMES AT THE NY TIMES (PART II)

Here is a good observation posted in Monday's rant thread

145... There is no "crisis of trust in the media". You have proven yourselves to be unreliable and liars time and again. Consequently, I have moved on to other sources and will not come back to you, ever. Enjoy your senescence and death, which you richly deserve.

Posted by: Krebs v Carnot: Epic Battle of the Cycling Stars (TM) at September 27, 2021 10:37 AM (pNxlR)

I wish I had started off with this point. As someone else commented, this is like a con man bemoaning the fact that the marks have caught on to his scam. So is the solution to drop the scam and earn an honest living? Oh heavens, no! The solution is to come up with a better scam.

So if the NY Times staff is having some sort of "struggle session" about this, it's a fake struggle session. There's really isn't anything to struggle about. The solution (better marketing) is baked in at the very beginning. There's no way they're going to start with the premise "we're a bunch of lazy liars" and build on that. They're not even capable of a milder version of this, perhaps by observing "you know, in our newsroom, nearly everyone is a very liberal or hard left Democrat, and we all pretty much think the same thing about every political topic we report on, and maybe this monoculture is creating problems with reaching some Americans who do not share our views. Is there anything we can do about this?"

But even this will never occur to them. Actually, it did occur to one guy who worked for the NY Times. There used to be a position at the Times called "the public editor" and it was his or her job to deal with these sorts of issues, and in the early 2000s, the NY Times public editor was a guy named Daniel Okrent. Believe it or not, he actually raised the issue, namely, that, you know, maybe being hardcore lefty 100% of the time is perhaps alienating some potential readers. His objections were very mildly, very tepidly stated (he was, after all, very liberal himself), and you know what happened to him? They fired his ass! They just didn't want to hear it. They gave the job to someone else (I forget her name) who made it a point not to raise issues like that, and she got let go after awhile, after which they terminated the position itself. So there is no public editor at the NY Times any longer, and hasn't been for a number of years.

It's like they reached down, grabbed that pesky little nuisance Jiminy Cricket, and squashed him. There's *no way* they would let anyone, not even an insider, caution them on their wall-to-wall anti-Trump jihad.

And this is just a result of the left's near complete lack of capacity for self-reflection. Thomas Sowell wrote about this in his book Conflict of Visions, and this type of thinking he labelled as "unconstrained." Unconstrained individuals "always think they are brilliant and the rest of us are just too stoopid or blind to see their brilliance", as commenter 'pep' said. They consider themselves 'enlightened' and once you're enlightened, there's no need for improvement.

This is actually a form of psychosis. Or actual psychosis, I'm not sure which.

Leftists do not want to hear a contrary word. And this is why any kind of peaceful coexistence is not possible with them. Our very existence is an affront to them. Because even if it were possible for us to set up our own country, the "red" states of America, alongside the "blue" states of America, it wouldn't last. Because they hate us and want us dead. Doesn't matter where we are. No matter where we went, they'd still hate us and want us dead. If peaceful coexistence with the left was possible, we would have done it by now. That is, we wouldn't be in this state of constant warfare. "Laissez faire", "live and let live", "let us alone and we'll let you alone" are concepts that are completely anathema to them. With progressives you have two choices: it is either their way or the whole world burns.

Channeling my inner Kyle Reese, I say this: Listen, and understand. The progressives are out there. They can’t be bargained with. They can’t be reasoned with. They don’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.

1 Not sure if you guys saw this, I do not think it was in JJs stack. I do not read Breitbart anymore. And so I do not know Nolte. In this article, he is arguing that the dems are sort of pushing Trump voters to not get the vax, so they will die.
https://tinyurl.com/jnz4kayr

He says: In counties where Donald Trump received at least 70 percent of the vote, the virus has killed about 47 out of every 100,000 people since the end of June, according to Charles Gaba, a health care analyst. In counties where Trump won less than 32 percent of the vote, the number is about 10 out of 100,000.

I guess one takeaway from these numbers is that about 5 per 10,000 die of the virus, or 1 out of 10,000, depending where you live. Does not seem like much to worry about.

4 Points made from reading the previous days' threads:

1) I'm still shocked that Durham actually arrested anybody. But hey, if it gets people talking that 'hey, Trump wasn't a Russian agent after all, and someone got arrested for it?' like Russell Brand is doing, then hey, more power to us. Still, the process of waiting till the last minute for a lousy indictment is a dinosaur relic. The new 21st century model is bring out not just 1 big lie, but hundreds of them (Trump ordered people to drink bleach! He hates brown people and wants the U.S to prolong white supremacy! Trump called Nazi's "fine people" at Charlottesville! Trump wants people to die because he's recommending garbage drugs like HCQ and Invermectin instead of wearing a mask and demanding 100% vaccine compliance! Trump's killing the planet because he's not killing the oil industry fast enough!) and have the toadies in the media take each individual big lie and parse it down so that the masses catch on to muliple lies from their televangelists like that comedy telethon from Kimmel + Colbert + Samantha Bee + I don't give a shit about the warmocoplyse.

Muldoon: I noticed that the Spartacus letter looked to me about like 2/3 of the stuff I knew was true but the establishment was lying about and 1/3 of it was poison pills, like, well, for instance "and they're doing this to plan a war with Innocent Little China..."

So yeah, the establishment's half-truths enable Chinese half truths... what else is new?

BTW., I've noticed a lot of propaganda of this type lately. "Controlled Opposition" is one phrase that comes to mind.

32 It's not new that the media are an adjunct operation of the DNC. That's been true at least since President Reagan's second presidential race.

The news is, more people outside the GOP conservative base have caught on.

It's taken a while because most of us prefer to delegate news-gathering. It's a lot of work, sorting out truth from fiction and PR.

Letting go of the "reliability" of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, etc. has taken a long time.

You made an outstanding point that 70% of the vaccinated are still catching and spreading the covids, though. That's only slightly better than being unvaccinated.

Oh, I think I disagree with that. Some small number think that. Most of their readers, like most of the TV networks' viewers, know that they're being lied to. The lies conform, so it's all good.

But they all need - for the purposes of doublethink - to not *acknowledge* that they're being lied to. They can know it, but they must never utter it or have it externally confirmed. The NYT admitting that they're lazy liars would cause a fugue state, and that is what they're likely avoiding.

Yup. I just thought it was interesting that Nolte idea is that they were sort of reverse psychologizing us. If Biden/Colbert/Fauci says, get the vax, then Trump voters say, no way, FOAD, but that is what they want, as then we die.

Because they don't see any view but their own as valid. Why would they *want* to reach out to people who are either too stupid or too evil to be already on board?!

62 USSR had a lot of propaganda, and Pravda ... but there was always the lamp of liberty in the USA, where Russian people saw freedom (mostly) working.

So now the DeepState globalists gained control of US media (or did that start in the 1930's?) ... to kill off any alternative to totalitarian control by a few.

But yes, the NY Times scam is very old, and though we have alternative media, we have Google with 93% control of searches, along with other BigTech giants helping with censorship and punishment, moving toward social credit scores that can jab your financial status, or worse.

63 I need the Horde's help. I've been friends with a couple for years now. I lost track with them for awhile but have tried to stay in touch the last couple of years. Her husband has vascular dementia. He broke a hip and had a stroke two years ago. Managed to get out of the house in the early morning in July and broke the other hip. She has him in a memory care center right now, so he can heal up.

All this is expensive and she is working with legal and financial folks to try and figure out what she can afford for care. There's a possibility they can get him on Medicare, although it will mean that the government will put a lien on the house. What I could use from the Horde are some resources for her. She could use someone that has dealt with all of this. It can make a huge difference just knowing that there really is a way to make this all work. My email is in the nic, if you want to respond to me off the blog.

67 {continued} the NYTimes' real audience is those mouth-breathers on Twitter who bark the loudest and disseminate the propaganda the furthest. The "influencers" and "thought leaders" (I just barfed a little).

To that audience, the NYTimes is old, faded, and just a little too "right-wing" for their tastes (clown-world, indeed), and we just need to be more hip, like Slate, or the Young Turks. The right completely ceded the Internet to the left, because like everything else, the right had the premise "if we just showed how open-minded and kind we are (by accepting every leftist premise under the sun), people will like us."

The Right really needs to learn 21st century warfare. Fuck the 80-year politicians and ass-kissers who think it's always going to be 1988.

104 Met my first covid Karen in the wild yesterday. A nurse practitioner at the dermatology office where I had an appointment to get a small growth (or 2nd head?) removed from my face. I usually see the MD, but this DNP had an available appt so I thought why not. Her first question: Have you had the covid vaccine. My answer: None of your business. Lots of bluster from her after that about how it was "the law" that I had to tell her. I says: What law? Name it. She finally admits: No law. The notion that she'd refuse to treat someone who's unvaccinated was firmly hanging there in the air. She insists I keep my mask on while she works on my face (upper cheek growth so it was possible, just annoying). At least 3 times, she re-adjusted my mask and pinched it onto my nose; pinching my nose in such a way as to cut off breathing. I firmly told her to stop doing that after the 3rd maneuver. I'll be complaining to the office and the MD there today and I'm considering a formal complaint to the medical licensing board in the state. Can someone in medicine actually refuse to treat an un-vaxed individual?? The mental illness is widespread...

106 Because even if it were possible for us to set up our own country, the "red" states of America, alongside the "blue" states of America, it wouldn't last.

Never say never.
Anything can be done, and there are many smart enough to think this through - like our Founding Fathers.

It is not to say it won't be hard. And it also inevitable that the enemy will try to destroy what we build, but that will always be the case.

I believe it can be done with enough willing to do what it takes. I repeat myself, but it should begin with individual states, perhaps "merging" in some way. You will see refugees dumped there, you will see people paid to move there from the enemy's side. We cannot give up.

We should never give in.

155 Oh, I think I disagree with that. Some small number think that. Most of their readers, like most of the TV networks' viewers, know that they're being lied to. The lies conform, so it's all good.

But they all need - for the purposes of doublethink - to not *acknowledge* that they're being lied to. They can know it, but they must never utter it or have it externally confirmed. The NYT admitting that they're lazy liars would cause a fugue state, and that is what they're likely avoiding.

To be honest, a cursory glance at the NYT comments (which I'm not going to now, but have done in the past) will rid you of that misstatement. It's all true believers, all the way down.

The issue is WHERE the people who are leaving the NYT are going. They're not leaving the NYT for actual reality based media like Ace and the cobs; they're leaving it for Vox, Twitter, or the Comedy Central activists I alluded to earlier. They're leaving the old lies for new, shinier lies that continue to affirm their worldview.

This has happened to me numerous times. Not about the 'Vid, but about invasive and irrelevant questionnaire items I routinely skip and initial out.

159 "Fanaticism is not an error, but a blind and stupid fury that reason can never confine. The only secret to preventing it from coming to birth is to restrain those who would excited it. You can very well demonstrate to madmen that their chiefs are fooling them; they are no less fervent in following them. Once fanaticism exists, I see only one way left to stop its progress; that is to use its own arms against it. It has nothing to do with reasoning and convincing. One must leave philosophy behind, close the books, take the sword, and punish the impostor."

229 I guess one takeaway from these numbers is that about 5 per 10,000 die of the virus, or 1 out of 10,000, depending where you live. Does not seem like much to worry about.

Posted by: MikeM at September 29, 2021 10:16 AM

SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 has an average survival/recovery rate of 99.74% across all age groups.

94% of SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 deaths are people with serious comorbidities.

The average age of people who have died of/with SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 is 78 years old.

As you said, does not seem like much to worry about for 99% of the world population. But the 1% elites of the world are using this non-issue to enact The Great Reset and strip every citizen of Western nations of their freedom and liberty and livelihoods.

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., ranking member on the House Armed Services Committee, said during Wednesday's hearing that he fears President Biden is "delusional."

Rogers pointed to Biden's claims that his chaotic military withdrawal from Afghanistan was an "extraordinary success" as evidence the president is out of touch with reality.

"This wasn't an extraordinary success. It was an extraordinary disaster," the congressman said. "It will go down in history as one of the greatest failures of American leadership
. We're here today to get answers on how the hell this happened. I expect our witnesses to give us an honest accounting of exactly what went wrong."

LOL, so hard with character limit, so here's the short version. I was attending an auto/motorcycle auction during the Pebble Beach Concourse d'Elegance wknd - this one was by my home in Carmel Valley. 2 older gentlemen were bidding on IIRC a '63 Ford Galaxie convertible. They were obviously friendly nemesis' and the bidding was going on for some time, each going up $500, we're getting close to $18k. Suddenly, Cage walks in with his entourage, and everybody gets all excited, taking pics etc. Without so much as looking at the car, he yells "$30,000!". SOLD! The fucker didn't even have a GD bidding paddle, he'd just walked in. With that, he turns around with a gal on each arm and left. If you could see the look on the faces of those 2 old gentlemen - well it was heartbreaking. That fucker just came in, and to prove his awesomeness, ruins a bidding session for no reason. And I KNOW that fucking car sat out in a lot somewhere with the top down and rusted.

Meanwhile, the Left focuses on things that actually matter. Like taking over every institution in the country.

The Right pats itself on the back for being clever on the internet, while the Left takes control of the country.

And then the Left purges the Right from the internet, not because they have to, but because they can.

375 Suddenly, Cage walks in with his entourage, and everybody gets all excited, taking pics etc. Without so much as looking at the car, he yells "$30,000!". SOLD! The fucker didn't even have a GD bidding paddle, he'd just walked in. With that, he turns around with a gal on each arm and left. If you could see the look on the faces of those 2 old gentlemen - well it was heartbreaking. That fucker just came in, and to prove his awesomeness, ruins a bidding session for no reason. And I KNOW that fucking car sat out in a lot somewhere with the top down and rusted.

That is what I mean by the Right completely ceding the Internet to the Left.

After thinking about it - this was 2005 (not 2012), when I was trying to bid on a Triumph Hurricane. So I'm sure that car is long gone. He might have written it off - who knows. It was just terrible that these 2 guys both wanted this car, and had reached the end of their funds. Somebody probably told Nik what was up and the expected going price, so he walked in, blew it out of the water and left. A lot of people were pissed off. Bad form. The car sat there as all the others got carted off on trailers, and was out there the next morning. The other thing that pissed me off is I'm not even convinced he was registered - just being Mr. Cage was good enough. Fuck that.

Well see, the smallpox vaccine was a vaccine, proper.

The covid "vaccine" is NOT a vaccine.

This is what the Left *does*, you know. They redefine words in order to confuse and/ or mislead people.

In keeping with Iowahawk's famous "find a respected institution, kill it, gut it, wear its carcass as a skinsuit, demanding respect" -- Lefties do the same thing with words: find a word that sounds inherently "good", then apply that word to some Leftist trope, and demand that the "respect" due the original connotation be applied to their mis-use of the word.

No sale, try harder.
