New York Times Quickly Learns Cops Are Right, Protests Wrong

News

Shameful upper-crust real-estate brochure theNew York Times is finally sort of covering the famous Occupy Wall Street protests now in their third week. We don't care, because why is anyone waiting for some old newspaper to publish the news that everybody is making without the permission of the New York Times, right? But still, it's funny how the first version of the NYT story about the Brooklyn Bridge fuckery by the NYPD was very quickly edited into a "tense showdown" that completely left out the part about the New York cops leading the protesters onto the bridge and into some weird Spiderman orange net trap, on purpose.


Honestly, complaining about the Corporate Media not reporting on the things you already know about is a waste of time. Corporate Media never reports on anything until they're told about this thing by enough sources of Conventional Wisdom such as other media representatives, lobbyists, Senate staffers, the boss, and probably what they read on Slate or whatever. (None of this applies if the turmoil is happening in a safely foreign country, because then the editors can use dramatic photographs of foreigners holding up their left feet, painted green, because that's how they "show democracy" over there, and then the newspaper can win Awards from other newspaper people. It's magic.)

Anyway, the New York Times very rapidly changed this story written in a "factual way" to better reflect the NYT mission of ignoring whatever happens in New York until it's big enough to be lied about, the end. [SOA Watch]

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
