The Times’ Haley Hit Piece Reinforces Americans’ Hatred of the Fake News Media

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Was that a bad pun, or are you just really that dumb? – I swear I just heard a TV reporter standing in knee-deep water on a flooded street somewhere in North Carolina say, without a smile on his face or a trace of humor in his voice, “This is a fluid situation.”

Let the Campaign Update take you on a walk through Bad Television History. – Incidentally, every time you see one of these reporters tell you “Whatever you do, do not go out into this weather!” while he himself is standing outside in 100 mph winds and blinding sheets of rain, remember we have Dan Rather to blame for this.

Yes, friends, way back in 1961, as Hurricane Carla was making her landfall along the Texas Gulf Coast, fake news icon Dan Rather was just a cub reporter at the local CBS affiliate in Houston.  It was he who got the bright idea to grab a camera man and go out into the hurricane itself to do a live report, in which he warned Houstonians to do what he said, not what he was doing.

That reporting got him attention from the high muckety-mucks at CBS’s national office, and the rest is fake news history.  Since that time, thousands of frustrated local reporters have tried to emulate Rather’s path to fake news glory, and about 99.9% of them have miserably failed, succeeding only in annoying the viewers of their local TV stations and endangering themselves, their cameramen and their production crews in the process.  That’s a legacy to be proud of, if you’re a raging narcissist like Mr. Rather.

Friday’s Outrage Mob moment, brought to you by the fakenewsers at the New York Times. – It has been quite obvious for going on two years now that if you are high-performing senior person in the Donald Trump Administration, the fake news media, led by the New York Times and CNN, is going work overtime to find some way to smear you.

The 10-month daily smear campaign by the Times finally succeeded in forcing EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s resignation earlier this summer and other similar campaigns have been unsuccessfully mounted against Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Neilsen, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and many others.  In fact, if you’re a high-level Trump official and you haven’t been subjected to a media smear, you might want to wonder about your job security.

No Trump appointee has performed her job at a higher level than UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, who has done a truly stellar job of representing U.S. interests before that collection of international thugs, despots and general ne’er-do-wells.  Since she’s doing such a great job, the fake news hacks at the New York Times decided to mount a smear of her reputation on Friday, running a hit piece whose headline claimed that Ms. Haley was spending more than $52,000 for curtains for her “new” official UN Ambassador residence, which the Times story attempted to portray as some extravagant upgrade over the Obama-era residence.

Oh, the Outrage Mob on Twitter and other social media went nuts over the story, with thousands of vacuous social justice warriors and assorted other nitwits and soulless ghouls tweeting stuff like “OMG, can you, like, believe, like, Nikki Haley is, like, you know, wasting our taxpayer dollars on curtains and, like, stuff?”

Of course, none of the members of the Outrage Mob bothered to read past the Times’ tweet and headline, into the bowels of the story itself.  If they had, they would have found, buried in the story’s sixth paragraph, the fact that the curtains were custom ordered and paid for by the Barack Obama Administration, which had also made the decision to move the U.N. Ambassador’s office out of the pricey Waldorf Towers to their current location in 2016, long before anyone had any inkling that Ms. Haley would become our UN Ambassador.

It took half a day, but the Times finally reluctantly issued a correction to the story mid-afternoon, revising its headline and including an editor’s note just below the headline.  But of course, the damage had already been done as hundreds of thousands of misinformed Americans will never see the correction, a fact of which the Times’ reporters and their editors were no doubt fully aware when they knowingly rushed an absurdly inaccurate story into print.

These are the very same people, mind you, who wail and moan and demonize anyone who criticizes our fake national news media.

Meanwhile, over at NBC’s hurricane coverage, it’s time to rile up the SJW Mob. – And hey, if you’re NBC and trying to horn your way into this Outrage Mob act, but having a hard time breaking through the New York Times/CNN Wall of News Fakery, what are do you do?

Why, you spice up your hurricane coverage with an idiotic, evidence-devoid claim that some poor Coast Guard guy who is working his butt of to save peoples’ lives “appears to give” the “white power sign” in the video linked here.

Gosh, it’s so darn hard to understand why so many millions of Americans – a number that grows every day – literally hate our news media.  What could the reason possibly be?

Just another day in the fake news media is part of the deep state America.

That is all.

    The desperation of the left is intensifying as we approach the midterms. This “Haley” squawk is just another faux news thing to try to derail the Trump train. Ain’t gonna happen. In fact, with each allegation, the train just seems to build up more momentum.
    Right about now folks should be noticing how the Tax Act is affecting their paychecks. Along with more jobs and some areas being revitalized due to all the policies of the POTUS, the left is left with nothing to brag about nor run on. They are running on empty. Hopefully that will be recognized come election time.
    KAG!

    You know, all of this unbelievable and unabashedly insane behavior by the Democrats, MSM, DOJ, and all the other operatives, dupes, and useful idiots of the deep state reminds me of nothing so much as that “reveal” scene in the original “Alien.” Ash, the science officer, whose been acting kind of weird all movie starts really acting weird with Sigourney Weaver in the medical bay and you’re starting to really think “whose side is this guy on?” Then he outright tries to kill her until one of the other crew comes in and fights him off, then he starts to twitch, jerk, spin and spit white stuff all over the place and at that point we’re all thinking, not only is he an insane bad person, but I’m not even sure he’s human! Then the other crew guy knocks his head off with a fire extinguisher and we find out he was a robot all along, completely on the side of the alien, working for, you guessed it, THE DEEP STATE! All of these people on the left are in that jerky, twitchy, spitty phase (sad to say pretty much LITERALLY), having already shown they intend to “kill” us and after we successfully foiled their attempt. And I can’t help but believe that the overwhelming majority of American’s plainly see this (because it’s pretty freakin’ bad) and are thinking “you are not only a mortal enemy, you are completely insane.” And I can’t help but believe that this will be borne out at the poles this November and in the ultimate bringing of justice after that. Hey, can somebody pass me that fire extinguisher?

      Greg, as science officer Ash said “it’s a perfect organism” and your comment “is a perfect comment”. Thanks.
