    One joy that I have is taking subscription offers in the mail from the New York Times and immediately tearing them up and throwing them into the trashcan.

    The Times feels that its growing digital subscriptions from angry Democrats can save it.

    So it has proudly become the leader of the Resistance.

    (To be fair, however, there are still some moderates and Republicans who -- while disgusted with its lopsided news coverage -- still feel that they need to read it.)

    I think in general the MSM across the Western world are dying slow death, most people now are using Independent media to get their news, the MSM are becoming irrelevant.

    Gotta give the Slimes folks some credit. Usually things decompose after death.

    It ought to be dead already---as dead as Goebbels' Propaganda Machine; as Dead as USSR's Pravda Propaganda Machine---it is the same animal as those two---and for the same reason--its purpose is to fool the people who it has concluded, in its own arrogance, are not sufficiently intelligent or too uneducated to process the meaning of The Facts....so it does it for them, by providing, not the actual Facts, but its notion of the meaning and nature and effect and relevance of those facts.

    And it does so through its own biased lens....a lens which happens to agree solely with the ideology of ONE Political Party...so that if it does give us Facts at all....the ones it likes are at the top of the first page, and a new iteration of them are repeated daily...and the ones it doesn't like at buried on Page 17...and then dropped forever.

    Fuck the New York Times
    And, Fuck Jeff Bezos and his Washington Post-----which this rich zealot purchased, out of a nearing collapse, for the sole purpose of furthering his own political agenda.

    What crime or malfeasance of office has Trump committed that you would swear to, under oath, in a court of law?
