The Pony In Corporate Consolidation

adele.jpgYes, ol' Adele Fergusen's brilliant, life-changing column has been Nick Sylvesterized from the Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal's website, but it is still available -- the pony hidden in the internet is that all the crazy shit you put there can last forever and ever! Some kindly blogger has posted the whole thing, in case you missed it yesterday.


And Felix Salmon found a letter from the Editor and Publisher of the KPBJ in which he comes off like a regular Bob McChesney, blaming corporate consolidation of ownership while also decrying the liberal biases of reporters (pulling off a flawless Radical Centrist double-Kurtz axel!):

Trump, because OMG it is just crazy that the liberals and the Deep State and the Rachel Maddow think Trump is some kind of puppet of Vladimir Putin, just because he constantly acts like a puppet of Vladimir Putin.

HAW HAW, LIBS OWNED! Isn't Donald Trump always saying nobody's tougher on Russia than he is? Glenn Greenwald agrees that nobody is tougher on Russia than Donald Trump, because Donald Trump says so.
