Greg Jayne is confused: no one cares what he thinks.

They blew it.

One of the biggest problems media has today was illustrated by a fringe-left nutter in a fringe-left rag where the actually seem to think anyone cares what they have to say.

You see, they COULD have done what they were supposed to do: report the news and keep their opinions out of it.

But at EVERY level, from the minor league version of Pravda in Camas to the junior league version in Vancouver to the major league versions of the networks and the New York Times, ALL of them allow(ed) their massive personal prejudices to interfere with providing the news.

We all know the result.  Idiocy from everything out of Lefty Lou's keyboard to every utterance from the Times and everything from the networks.

ALL were wrong about this election in every imaginable way.  All allowed and even encouraged those with an equally massive bias to pollute the media, the airways, cable and of course, the newspapers.

For years now, I have been describing the democratian as, well, the democratian AND as a cancer on our community.

Stupidity like Lefty's column last week ( Press Talk: Predicting how Trump handles loss ) is a case in point.  There's no way a leftist rag would write anything like that about Hillary.

And that's the problem.  The simple test of fairness and a lack of bias boils down to this:

Whenever any of these people get the urge to write an article trashing anyone, they need to ask themselves: would the write the same article about someone they support?

Would it have the exact same tone?  The exact same level of respect?  The precise same amount of disrespect?

Clearly, that has not been the case for years, either locally or nationally.

If, for example, you were one of Lefty Lou's drinking buddies, then he obviously likes you.  And if you're "liked" by Lefty, then you get favorable coverage.  Do what HE wants (regardless of what WE want) and you're in.

Oppose his agenda and he will not hesitate to attempt to destroy you.

It's happened to me.  It's happened to a great many others. Lefty's hatred and his use of his position as a weapon is obvious... and, of course, closely mirrors that of the major league liars at the national level who have done so much for so long to divide us and conquer us.

Essentially, what we have is a special class that just isn't so special.

They THINK they are, and they want US to think that as well.

But if this election proved anything, it proved that the electorate that counts is wising up. It proved that the increasingly despised media has to compete with other sources of information.  It proves that the lamestream media isn't nearly as vital as they think they are.

They COULD be, if they just gave us all the facts and let us make up our own minds.

Jayne, for his part, doesn't believe that's possible, which led to this:
Look, I think it was a poor choice. I think Trump is a boorish, unqualified, bigoted hatemonger. And you know what: What I think doesn’t matter now; enough people disagreed with that assessment to make him the president-elect. No amount of whining or caterwauling can change that and, while we will need to consult our pocket U.S. Constitution on this one, we’re guessing that no amount of protest will change it, either.
As a leftist, he joined with every other fringe-left nutberger in supporting Hillary... and he rarely, if ever, mentioned her faults; her criminality, her pathological lying, her basic dishonesty, her rank incompetence.

But then, the whole truth was not their focus.

Even the New York Times has acknowledged their journalistic perfidy.

Our local democrat daily is no better than this and certainly has been... and continues to be... much, much worse.  But we cannot expect to get a facsimile of this letter from Lefty Lou or the idiot who hired him and who bears a great deal of responsibility for the damage and corruption he has caused, encouraged and allowed.  That would be far, far too much to expect, since an acknowledgement of the obvious bias and dishonesty displayed by this newspaper will never happen in my lifetime.

And that is the heart of the matter.

Greg shows his confusion by writing:
"Look, I think it was a poor choice."
Why does it matter WHAT Jayne thinks?  How is his judgment in this or any OTHER issue superior to ours?  To yours?  To mine?

He has an opinion.  Baseless, groundless, moronic, idiotic; but an opinion, nonetheless.

But that's ALL it is.

That's not what HE thinks, of course and that's not what he wants US to think.  But there it is.

Further confusion is displayed here:
What I think doesn't matter now; enough people disagreed with that assessment to make him the president-elect.
It not only "doesn't matter now," it NEVER mattered.

Because if the cheerleading and democrat/RINO support actually made any difference in the electorate... then that's all we'd have around here.  Certainly, after routinely trashing Liz Pike, she would have been on the other end of her reelection vote count if they had that kind of ability.

The rag, including this moron Jayne, trashed Trump like they trashed Madore... as did every publication and network show in the country.  Jayne lies about who and what Trump is, and because of that, he, along with Lefty, actually seem to believe that will move the voters to their opinion.

It didn't work for the CRC/Loot Rail scam, and it didn't work around here for this, either.

The problem with that, of course, is both simple and obvious: not enough people are leftist enough to read the rag... and of those who did, NONE of them changed their vote based on the self-flagellating opinions of leftist writers with an agenda that not only crept over the line into news; but flat, outright, obliterated it.

As a result, purveyors of leftist pap who expect the people to take their word for it wouldn't be surprised when their conclusions are ignored as to what we should do with our lives, our intentions and most certainly our votes.

Even CBS has engaged in some level of self-examination.  An article entitled

Commentary: The unbearable smugness of the press
By Will Rahn CBS News November 10, 2016, 6:00 AM
addresses the most salient point:
The mood in the Washington press corps is bleak, and deservedly so. 
It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that, with a few exceptions, we were all tacitly or explicitly #WithHer, which has led to a certain anguish in the face of Donald Trump’s victory. More than that and more importantly, we also missed the story, after having spent months mocking the people who had a better sense of what was going on. 
This is all symptomatic of modern journalism’s great moral and intellectual failing: its unbearable smugness. Had Hillary Clinton won, there’d be a winking “we did it” feeling in the press, a sense that we were brave and called Trump a liar and saved the republic. 
This is another in the ongoing, daily series of Jayne living up to the democratian's smugness.  Clearly, they are confused.  And clearly, we think for ourselves.

In 1964, I graduated high school ... and to get a quick start on my higher education, I took some classes at U.C. Berkeley summer session. Unfortunately, that was when the "Free Speech Movement" was in it's beginnings.

Each morning, when I arrived on campus, usually some time before class, I'd have a cup of coffee and a muffin (or whatever) in the dining commons -- and I'd pick up a copy of the New York Times to read with my coffee... That's when my eyes were opened to the lies that end up in the press.

Around noon every day, the FSM folks would often have some fool on the steps in front of Sproul Hall (the administration building for the campus) blabbering about nothing comprehensible. At noon, on any given day, the Sproul Hall plaza and Sather Gate would have 5 to 10 thousand students crossing through-- this is a main "crossroad" on the U.C. campus that generally has 30,000 students enrolled.

My SHOCK was to read (the next morning) how "thousands" stand in at Sproul Hall .... when, at most, only a dozen or so students were actually stopped and gathered around the speaker. Meanwhile, "thousands" of students walked through Sproul Hall Plaza and Sather Gate on their way to lunch, or whatever.

I haven't believed a THING the New York Times has published since....
