American Elephants

The Common Complaint of Bias in the Media (TRUE) by The Elephant's Child


Ann Coulter, “New York Times  best-selling author and conservative columnist” said today at Breitbart that she just wants President Trump to “destroy the media”— even if nothing else is accomplished by his administration.  She was specifically offended by the media’s “distaste” that the president tweeted about the killing of white farmers occurring in South Africa. (not to be mentioned), and she added I want him to expose where the Democratic Party is going with things like their chant “No borders, no wall, no USA at all,” Gov Cuomo saying America was never great, or the New York Times hiring Sara Jeong who just tweets hatred and venom towards white men.

Well, I can’t disagree with Ann all that much. A former editor for the New York Times, David Leonhardt, claimed that American racism is the only reason Americans care about the death of Molly Tibbits at the hands of an illegal alien. (No it’s not racism, it’s the ILLEGAL part.) We don’t like 20 year old college students being brutally murdered. The only reason Democrats try to stick the Republicans with the racism tag, is because Democrats have such a long and dreadful history of their own racism. They thought electing the first black president would finally absolve them of their history. But they haven’t changed their behavior.

CNN excitedly thought they had caught President Trump in an impeachable offense, lying about prior knowledge of the infamous Trump Tower meeting during the 2016 presidential campaign. Turned out it was Lanny Davis, Cohen’s attorney, who said Cohen told him, but Davis has since admitted publicly that Cohen did not have such information, and he was a source on the story to CNN. CNN refused to retract the story in spite of it’s falsification.

Twitter failed to block or ban a tweet to NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch on Sunday that said:

The only way these people learn is if it affects them directly. So if Dana Loesch has to have her children murdered before she’ll understand, I guess that’s what needs to happen.

Loesch’s husband complained to Twitter, who eventually responded “We have reviewed your report carefully and found that there was no violation of the Twitter Rules against abusive behavior.” Threaten to kill your kids? Fine. They did remove it by Wed. after an outcry.

I was about to discard my 2002 book on Media Bias by Bernard Goldberg, but I think I’d better hang on to it. A strong leftward bias by the news media is not anything new, just more virulent.

Some thoughts on those angry voters. Ask parents of any two-year-old and they can tell you about those temper tantrums; the stomping feet, the rolling eyes, the screaming…Imagine a nation full of uncontrolled two-year-old rage. The voters had a temper tantrum last week…Parenting and governing don’t have to be dirty words: the nation can’t be run by an angry two-year-old.

The man is on the Court. You know, I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. Well, that’s how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible

There are lots more examples in the book, but two will suffice.
