Recent highlights in blatant stupidity spewed by the Slime Stream Media.
The New York Times’s columnist Maureen Dowd published, “It’s hard to fathom, but it has been 36 years since a man and a woman ran together on a Democratic Party ticket.” Uhh, no.
The column has been corrected.
The New York Times’ cybersecurity reporter, Nicole Perlroth, tweeted that Russia’s disinformation campaign to “suppress black turnout” in 2016 “worked.” In fact, the 2016 election saw some of the highest black turnout of any presidential election in the last 50-plus years.
The tweet has been deleted.
Washington Post’s national politics reporter, Colby Itkowitz, tweeted that former President Barack Obama never circumvented Congress to enact by fiat his legislative agenda.
Obama, who famously bragged that he didn’t need Congress, because he had “pen and phone,” repeatedly attempted to enact his agenda by legislative fiat.
The New York Times published a news report early Monday saying, “Overall, serious crime in New York City has not jumped this year, but murders and shootings have: The city is on pace to to [sic] surpass 800 shootings for the first time in three years.”
How does the New York Times define “serious crime” if not shootings and murders?
The Washington Post published a grotesque, glossy photo essay praising Portland rioters that was titled “Trump sent agents to quell unrest. But protest is what Portland does best.”
Setting fires, shooting off mortars, attempting to blind law officers is “what Portland does best”?
