Thread: Proof most of the media is in bed with Democrats

  1. #1

    Default Proof most of the media is in bed with Democrats

    This warrants its own topic now.

    If you still aren't convinced the media just carries the water for Democrats than maybe this will help persuade you.

    Yesterday Washington Post ran this headline: "North Carolina Republicans overrode a budget veto while Democrats were at a 9/11 ceremony"

    Democrats accused Republicans of lying to them saying they wouldn't hold a vote on 9/11 to allow legislatures to attend 9/11 ceremonies. Many publications ran with this story from the Democrats because why not? It gives the impression that Democrats care so deeply about 9/11 victims and shows that Republicans are callous assholes who tricked Democrats into going to 9/11 ceremonies so they could hold a vote without them.

    Only problem is the story is 100% bullshit. The Republicans stated clearly and plainly every day for days leading up to 9/11 that the vote would be held on 9/11, including audio evidence on 9/10 that the vote would be held on 9/11.

    Only ONE Democrat even attended a 9/11 ceremony, much less all Democrats like the story claims.

    But don't worry, Washington Post later "corrected" their headline with this garbage: "Clarification: An earlier version of this article overly generalized the reason for Democrats’ absence from the General Assembly session. This version has been updated."

    They also "corrected" their story from "Republicans tricked Democrats who were patriotically attending 9/11 ceremonies!"

    To this:

    [quote]While most North Carolinians were remembering the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001, the Republican leaders in the General Assembly took advantage of a half-empty House and voted to override the governor’s budget veto Wednesday morning.[/qutoe]

    Yes, because most North Carolinians doing something on a particular day has so much to do with what the state legislature doing their job.

    If they had the votes to override a veto, a full House wouldn't have stopped them.

    Apparently the way it's done in NC they only need whatever percentage of the politicians who are present when the vote is held. Since a lot of Democrats weren't there when the vote was held the Republicans were able to override the veto.

    That is a pretty dumb system.

    That is definitely proof all right. 100% irrefutable, non-opinion fact.

    If you don't believe main stream media is literally the mouthpiece of the DNC.. you might be in line for a title shot for the Retard Championship Belt.

    I think it is mostly due to the fact that the majority of people who pursue the sort of degrees that are useful to being a journalist are generally liberal.

    The right-wing stance that they're victimized by a hostile "mainstream" media is ludicrous. Fox News is by far the most-watched basic cable news station. It *is* the mainstream media, and it loves Trump and right-wing ideas (though a bit less lately).
