Trump Outsmarts the Fake News Media Again

2019 November 30

Journalism School (aka “J School”) isn’t known for having the brightest and best students at any college. In fact, it’s often the last resort for students who cannot handle math and science at colleges than don’t offer basket weaving as a major.

Given the current situation in the profession was once known as journalism (low-paying jobs, rapidly declining job prospects as newspapers consolidate, downsize or fold, etc.), why would any rational student opt for “J School” … unless the only other option was the drive-thru window at Burger King?

Once again President Trump outsmarted the media. While the media was attacking the President for pursuing personal pleasures on Thanksgiving, he was secretly flying 7,000 miles to spend Thanksgiving Day with US troops stationed in Afghanistan.

Fake news gonna fake!

And there’s CBS’s White House Correspondent Mark “Does this Beard Make me Look Less Stupid?” Knoller:

 Nov 27

But, don’t give the President too much credit; it’s not like he is outsmarting rocket scientists. It’s more like Clemson playing UMass or Akron in football.

    So … how many times did Obama visit troops in A’stan.
    In a blog comment, someone said Obama went to A’stan four times.
    Never on a holiday.
    Never visited troops.

    post title: “Trump Outsmarts the Fake News Media Again

    Kinda like saying “Water is Wet, Again

    The media CRIES OUT to be fooled…again and again. There’s an old and true saying regarding scams and con games: “You can’t fool an honest man”. The press so desperately WANTS bad news about Trump to be true, that they embellish even the most obvious lies and report them as FACT!

    When Obama did visit the troops in Iraq, they had to almost force troops to be photographed with him. Almost the brass loved Obama…because he was promoting those who agreed with his Social Justice agenda way beyond their capabilities.

    No Maths.

    If it wasn’t for the cash register/terminal doing the calculations, they wouldn’t be able to handle it.

    Where was the media when the Obamas were spending three weeks every holiday season in Hawaii, two weeks in the summer at Martha’s Vineyard and playing golf all the time.

    6,

    No kidding! I went into a taco bell one time over in Dallas for a quick lunch. Walked up and as soon I was about to order, “Sorry we’re closed. Our terminals are down. We can’t make change.” $100’s hour in lost labor because someone does not know how to run a register manually.

    Counting back change is a lost art.

    The common thread is that the US is using SWIFT, USD and financial arbitrage as a tool of empire as surely as they use drones or armies.

    None of the other publications fire liars.
    I’m guessing Newsweak had other reasons and welcomed an excuse.

    Heh.
    “As for the tweeter-in-chief, the White House scheduled pre-planned tweets to be sent from the president’s Twitter account during the many hours that he was in the dark.”

    Jim, 16,

    I have to say the First Lady is a class act. She really held it together after the terrible reception she received during an opiod awareness speech. Probably not a lot of fun living in a fish bowl either.

    Re: I think you are right. All the data given to the MSMoids was a feint to not tip off the POTUS whereabouts. So yeah, Newsweak was fishing for a fake reason.

    18 is an interesting read. Question is what third of the Senators are heavily Dim this cycle? McConnell keeps signalling a quickie trial. Personally I would like to see Schiff and staff in the witness box. It could blow up the whole thing, and strip the whistle blower of his whistle.

    Liberty is beating New Mexico State for the second time this year. When you are a no-name independent, it’s sometimes hard to find opponents.

    No major upsets yet, but Maryland and Rutgers are hanging with Michigan State and Penn State.
