The Morning Rant: Our Awful Media – A Never Ending Story

NY Times Smears Lara Logan

Lara Logan was once a star reporter at CBS, reaching the apex of mainstream media prestige as one of the correspondents on 60 Minutes. Then she did the unthinkable – she started covering stories unfavorable to the left. The media establishment will never forgive her.

The New York Times just ran a hit piece on her titled “Lara Logan, Once a Star at CBS News, Is Now One for the Far Right.” (Sorry, no link. Just a few quotes. I refuse to reward those smear merchants.)

“Some of her former CBS News colleagues recalled that when they worked together, her politics were not always easy to categorize.”

Think about that line. Her colleagues were troubled that “her politics were not always easy to categorize.” In other words, they couldn’t determine if she was a loyal member of Team Democrat.

That meant she might even be…objective. Oh No!

Lara Logan - Hard to categorize.JPG

Seriously, how irreversibly broken is journalism if journalists can’t handle even one person in a newsroom not being a left-wing partisan?

Not being properly worshipful of Barack Obama was apparently very problematic, too. Even worse, her Obama-loving co-workers feared that Ms. Logan had “suspicions of the White House’s motives and war strategy.” With that kind of attitude she was clearly at risk of committing journalism against President Lightbringer. That would not be tolerated.

More than half a dozen journalists and executives who worked with Ms. Logan at “60 Minutes,” most of whom spoke anonymously to discuss private interactions with her, said she sometimes revealed political leanings that made them question whether she could objectively cover the Obama administration’s military and foreign policy moves. She appeared increasingly conservative in her politics over the years, they said, and more outspoken about her suspicions of the White House’s motives and war strategy.

In a better world, all journalists would be cynics who questioned any White House’s motives and strategy, regardless of the President’s party. We don’t live in that world.

Ms. Logan’s banishment from mainstream media has hardly restricted her access to the center of gravity in the Republican Party.

How dare she?! Lara Logan was made to walk the media plank for daring to cover the left as critically as the media covers the right. Rather than fading away, she has come roaring back as a superstar in right-of-center media, covering stories that are embargoed by her former co-workers.

From the vicious streets of Cairo to war zones across the globe, Lara Logan has experienced more adversity as a journalist than any journalist in the Beltway social circuit. Much more adversity. Rather than respect her, they hate her for betraying the guild and for aggressively covering stories that the MSM buries.

Much gratitude to Lara Logan for her toughness and for her professionalism. The Times’ slimy hit piece on her is just a reminder of what a loathsome institution it has become.

Journalists vs Math

Journalists attempting math, and failing, is always entertaining. But this is beyond embarrassing.

The math-impaired folks at CNBC are surprised to learn that if you keep adding to an existing amount, without ever subtracting from it, the total only goes up. Mind blown.

Student loan debt hits another record high despite payment forbearance [CNBC – 5/10/2022]

“Despite.”

Payment forbearances have been in place since March 2020. Meanwhile, the University Industrial Complex has continued to push massive amounts of new debt on students over the past two years.

“Despite” the flood of new student loans, and without any required payment of existing student loans, the total outstanding keeps growing to new record highs. Go figure.

*****

Still More Math-Impaired Left-Wing Writers

Speaking of math-impaired writers, Amy Siskind received tremendous scorn for this tone-deaf tweet downplaying the pain of inflation and mocking Fox News for its coverage of how painful inflation has been to Americans.


Amy Siskind.JPG

Perhaps Ms. Siskind is not that heartless. Instead, I believe that she is simply not bright enough to understand that a decrease in the inflation rate from 8.5% to 8.3% (which are the rates she was crowing about) does not mean that prices are dropping.

If a product cost $100 a year ago, and the inflation rate over the past 12 months was 8.5%, the price would now be $108.50. I’m guessing that Ms. Siskind thinks that with inflation “dropping” to 8.3%, that product has now declined in price to $108.30. That’s not how inflation works. In fact, that’s now how math works.

If the price is now $108.50 and the inflation rate stays at 8.5%, that product will cost $117.72 in one year. But with inflation “dropping” to 8.3% that product will “only” cost $117.51 in a year.

Here’s what consumers see at the checkout line with the inflation numbers that have Ms. Siskind gloating. The 8.3% increase in year #2 would amount to an additional $9.01 price increase, on top of the $8.50 increase in year #1.

No amount of political spinning or media bias can overcome the painful math that consumers are dealing with. At 8.30% annual inflation, consumer prices double in less than 8 years.

Let the left proudly embrace that cruel statistic and take pride in 8.3% inflation.

“Ohio Man”

The man arrested by the FBI for allegedly plotting to assassinate George W. Bush is an Iraqi citizen who entered the United States in September 2020 on a visitor visa.

How does USA Today identify this Iraqi citizen who has been in our country less than two years? They refer to him as “an Ohio man.” This level of media disinformation used to be upsetting. Now that the media has lost all credibility, it’s just plain funny.

Misinformation From The Washington Post On The Anniversary of George Floyd’s “Shooting”

I attribute both malice and stupidity to this completely false headline from the Washington Post.


Wa Po George Floyd.JPG

George Floyd was not shot. But if he had been shot it would better fit the narrative the media has been pushing. So, that is enough for them to publish an outrageous lie.

That's just the inflation of a predetermined "basket of goods". Then run through statistical models to remove other factors like outliers, geographic, etc. The baby formula situation is a good example of something that would be removed since it was due largely to other causes.

38 There was once a time when news organizations tried to provide "both sides" of a story, by having people on to discuss things. They tried to be nonpartisan in tone and content as well, although not very hard. I mean, they were never very good at either one, but there was a visible effort that did result in stories breaking that were indifferent to party: if it was a story, it was a story, even if the Democrats suffered.

That's not only gone, its considered a terrible thing to do, an evil thing because they don't think you're wrong. They think you're heretical and evil. They think its good vs Hitler, not left vs right. They've elevated their opponents to being deliberately hateful, racist monsters rather than "I disagree with them on these topics.

And you can practically point to when it happened.

And, there's the rub. Lara Logan is not a woman of the Right. That's laughable. She's a woman of the center-Left. But not of the rigidly ideological, barking-mad Far Left. Very easy to categorize - the world is full of such people.

But, to them? "Not easy to categorize." IOW, not one of us. Can't be trusted. Might not follow orders every time, as is her journalistic duty. Must be cast out and destroyed. Never go against the family.

The consumer price index inflation rate is an average or some other means for defining a combined inflation rate for all of the items in the index: Gasoline, milk, eggs, bread, etc.

I have no idea what statistical method the Feds use to get the announced consumer inflation rate. A plain average, or a weighted average (assigning a higher proportional value to bread than to gasoline, for example) or what?

112 George Floyd was shot to death by murderous cops. (Oops, no he wasn't).

George Floyd was murdered when a cop suffocated him with his knee. (Oops, not according to the autopsy findings).

George Floyd was murdered because a cop put a knee on him and that caused him to die of positional asphyia. (Oops, not according to the autopsy findings).

George Floyd died because he had a severely-diseased heart (95% proximal blockage of major arteries) and because he swallowed a handful of speedballs when arrested so he wouldn't be charged for dealing. The effect of the amphetamine on his badly-diseased heart, combined with the stress and exertion of fighting with cops and thrashing around in the back of the cop car, are what killed George Floyd. But that doesn't fit on a bumper sticker, and doesn't support the lefty narrative, so . . .

_____________

There is a story in the DM about one Border Patrol officer, married to a teacher at the school. He was at the barber's when his wife texted him that there was an active shooter in the school. She asked him for help, and he borrowed a shotgun from the barber and raced to the school (he also had a daughter who went there). He went into the school and got his wife, daughter, and some other students and teachers out of the school.

Other than the mother who went to the school and got her kids out, I haven't seen any other stories that name people who did this.

Current AI is nowhere near actually intelligent, and has no path to it.

I imagine Chinese AI researchers don't have that problem though.

I hesitated - not over her question, but because I was frozen by seeing this incredibly hawt blonde with the sexy South African accent appear, in a place and time where female beauty was rare.

242 Here is a Google satellite view of Robb Elementary for your reference as the officials /spit/ give more details today

https://tinyurl.com/yc2pw2tu

The school is not a single building. It is a complex of at least six separate buildings. The links between the buildings are covered sidewalks, not enclosed corridors. At upper left center is the funeral home mentioned in the reports.

The building he entered is the one nearest the funeral home; the short, whitish sidewalk leads to the door he entered. That door is about as far as there is in complex from the school office near Old Carrizo Road.

The open culvert he crashed the pickup into is the vertical gray feature at left leading down from Geraldine Street in this view. I think he crashed near the start of the culvert at Geraldine. The trees to the left must be the treeline seen in the background of photos of the pickup's driver side. Not far from the door he entered.

I hope this helps you better understand the geography.

267 Regarding the George Floyd shot thing... we've all done that here, posted something based on flawed or confused memory (and then got jumped on by everyone with both boots because its funny on the internet to abuse and mock someone for making an honest mistake, evidently).

The big difference is that none of us are paid to do this professionally... I mean, I'm not at least... nobody is paid, right?

Anyway, we're not doing this as our job. We aren't working for an allegedly prestigious major newspaper. We don't have literal editors to check our work. Its one thing to screw up something casually, its another to do it as a professional working for an organization, for pay.

one is an understandable error. The other is a severe professional flaw. And its one of the critical problems with social media: no editors, no delays, no checking, just gut level barfing onto the world.

312 Yeah inflation is over double digits, 12% feels more accurate. But the usual metric leaves off food and energy and a couple of other major price sectors because they are "too volatile" and hence difficult to measure. Which is bullcrap, but it helps keep the numbers down.

357 Worth nothing, but I'm done with Ukraine. I just saw that YouTube took down a video that had Victoria Nuland naming who Ukraine's new cabinet ministers should be. Pretty much proof that deep state is running Ukraine. While this was known for 8 years, the fact that big tech is censoring on orders from the ministry of truth means that this info is suddenly inconvenient to the deep state It appears that the war is actually between Russia and the deep state. Zelensky and his cronies are getting paid very well to do deep state's bidding. The poor ordinary Ukrainians are the deep state's cannon fodder. And if you think the deep state thinks any better of ordinary US citizens than they do of Ukrainians, you're a fool. This whole thing is disgusting.
