What happened to when news was news instead of a campaign narrative or talking points? No more, those days are gone. Treated to a constant stream of “news” bias, it’s hard to have any confidence in their news at all, on anything. Sliced and diced in their political filters, they dispense it like candy. Public confidence in it takes a hit.
What else is gone is any hint of objectivity. Wiki Leaks purged emails on Friday and within an hour a hot and ‘salacious’ tape appeared about Trump. It was private statements from a decade ago. A Hurricane running up the East Coast and the news shifted to “breaking news” of the Trump tape. So much for real, hard news. But the hurricane coverage does take precedence over Hillary’s Wiki Leaks story. I see what they did there.
Immediately an interjection came from John Podesta saying that Russia, likely behind the hacks, could have altered the emails. But how likely is that? So Podesta has a huge problem, it appears Wiki Leaks has so much more credibility than his own candidate.
It was your candidate who scrubbed and deleted 30 thousand emails, and had the State Department altering classification codes to suit their purpose. I’d go with Wiki hands down over a forgery claim. Funny thing about credibility, when it’s gone it’s gone.
Let’s not forget the Clintons’ Decade of Decadence and Hillary’s decade of destroying women. We learned a lot in the 90’s, didn’t we? The philosophy of “is” was critical to our intellectual acumen. We learned that impeachment was an ideal but highly unlikely. Now that we know that, we don’t even much question that route for Obama. It’s so like nineties, and we’ve “Moved On”. Sometimes news is no news.
The news that comes out now is time released like a pharmaceutical. It’s waiting to go off at the right political moment. News becomes ammunition to create the right ambience when needed. Collect it like baseball cards and trade it. Like everything else that has been politicized by the Left: government, national security, medical coverage, media, and even sports followed suit. News must fit their agenda.
There was a train wreck in Hoboken last week. The train came in at about twice the speed limit and showed no sign of breaking. Well, it wasn’t pretty. Black boxes will tell the story, they hope. One apparently was not functioning. But investigators will get to the bottom of it, surely, sometime. It just shouldn’t have happened, yet it did.
Our election is shaping up a lot like that train wreck. Trump came in too fast and didn’t apply the breaks as they suggested. They weren’t prepared for the fallout. It’s not pretty, but politics and train wrecks rarely are. They are both studied for the same reason, to try to avoid future damage.
Trump is no student of politics nor of standard operating procedures. He plotted his own route. But his plan was not the usual one. It was meant to interrupt the system, and it did. It was meant to derail the establishment control. We decided that, at some point, having all the estabishement running on time, per plan, was not the most efficient system. Corruption just breeds more corruption, and corruption breeds contempt.The wreck was inevitable.
