2016 Tabloid Simplicity: Self-proclaimed media of record try their best to ignore wrongdoing by powerful liberals

2016 Tabloid Simplicity: Self-proclaimed media of record try their best to ignore wrongdoing by powerful liberals, by Austin Bay.

She holds public and private positions, which differ, diametrically. He’s used naughty words for private parts….

Actions do speak louder than words. Hence the 2016 election’s stark tabloid simplicity: Her crimes, his words. …

Donald Trump’s locker room language may offend individual sensibilities. His hot mic comments about women offended me …

Trump’s ugly sex talk was recorded in 2005, without his knowledge.  Did we hear his sincere private opinion about private parts? Perhaps not. However, he has publicly apologized for his foul mouth and holds himself personally accountable.

Despite the apology, The Donald faces a relentless media tsunami of unproven allegations — allegations of pinching and groping and unwanted squeezes and lecherous looks.

Media tsunamis are a type of public accountability. However, we live an in era where the self-proclaimed media of record try their best to ignore wrongdoing by powerful liberals or, that tactic failing, attempt to justify them. As a result, liberals enjoy a comparatively unrestrained presumption of Media Privilege. American media tsunamis are thus a highly selective form of public accountability. They overwhelmingly slam Republicans and they slam with calculated political malice and mud.

They do this each election. Take 2012.

A media outrage tsunami struck poor Mitt Romney — because the Romney family dog rode in a carrier on the roof of the family car. Why, Clintonite Lanny Davis declared this canine travesty proved Romney unfit to serve as president.

Unfit, Lanny? Romney was the man who called Vladimir Putin’s Russia America’s “number one geo-political foe” and Barack Obama mocked him for it. … [I]n 2012 Obama told Russia’s then-president Dmitry Medvedev to tell ole Vlad that after the 2012 U.S. presidential campaign he (Obama) would have more flexibility in addressing the Kremlin’s concerns. Who was right about the Kremlin, Lanny? Mitt or Barack?

The media’s credibility is taking a big hit in 2016.

Whether or not they support Trump, many conservatives are fed up with the crooked media’s selective orgasms of privileged outrage. As a result, a media tsunami’s power to inflict permanent damage has waned.

The shock of Trump’s 2005 hot mic is already receding. Did Trump use vile language and make crude, arrogant declarations? Yes. But compare Trump’s verbal vulgaritywith the physical, flesh and blood horror of Bill Clinton’s sexual depredations. …

Hillary’s credibility:

Hillary Clinton is waging a one-woman War On Honesty, and getting paid for it by Wall Street financiers.

As Business Insider succinctly said Hillary’s public message differs greatly from what she says in privacy — plush privacy.

In a speech delivered off-the-record, Hillary told the The National Multi-Housing Council that she lies with calculation. Oh, she wasn’t that direct — she can’t be that honest — but read the Wikileaks transcription. … Hillary excuses her lying as routine politics. That’s just the way it’s done by the political pros, folks.
