Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Your Democrat Party/Fake News Media in Action! – In a true profile in cowardice, DNC Chairman Tom Perez announced that the Democrat Party would boycott Fox News during its presidential nominating contest.
Obviously anxious to prevent mental midgets like Cory Booker and Joe Biden from having to answer anything resembling a tough question, Perez hilariously said that “I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach all voters,” just not voters who watch Fox News. You seriously just cannot make this stuff up.
No doubt Perez and his fellow Democrats are still angry at Fox’s Chris Wallace, who is a liberal but still an actual professional journalist, for his conduct of the third debate between then-candidate Donald Trump and the Pantsuit Princess. After the first two debates, hosted by your standard fake news clowns Lester Holt and Elaine Quijano, had become nothing but Trump slam fests over personal issues, Wallace chose instead to focus his debate questions on actual, real issues that matter to the American public, and that spelled doom for the Fainting Felon.
Not that it’s surprising at all, given that it is just one more step by the Democrats toward revealing their true totalitarian nature, but this is really pathetic. It is also quite dangerous, since now we have a political party officially blacklisting a media outlet – which happens to be far and away the most-watched cable news outlet – because it doesn’t like it. Even more dangerous, no one else in the fake news media is slamming Perez for his childish behavior.
What does that tell us? Obviously, it tells us that they’re all in this together, the Dems and their media partners, and they’re no longer putting up any pretense otherwise.
All the leftist masks are now off: the Democrats have unmasked their true socialist/fascist visage, and the fake news media has unmasked its longstanding alliance with the Democrats.
Some fake journalists on Twitter tried to defend the Democrat blacklisting of Fox by pointing to a recent allegation that the cable channel became aware of the Stormy Daniels story in October 2016, but sat on it until after the election. Even if that allegation is true, it is meaningless in this controversy, since it is a simple fact of history that that the three TV broadcast networks have been sitting on stories that would damage Democrats since John F. Kennedy was banging the girlfriend of mob boss Sam Giancana, Judith Campbell Exner, in the White House on a weekly basis.
For his part, President Trump responded to the DNC action on Twitter:
Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!

It would actually be a blessing to the country if Mr. Trump simply blew up the Commission on Presidential Debates entirely. This “tradition” of holding such debates was not a tradition at all until the 1960 election, when JFK and Richard Nixon agreed to hold the first such events in modern times. The current format is structured on the false pretense that “journalists” from Democrat-controlled outlets like NBC and CNN can be trusted to conduct these debates in a fair manner, which obviously never happens.
Due to the very nature of our national news media as nothing more than the propaganda wing for the Democrat Party, the Republican candidate is always at a disadvantage. Even Wallace’s questions, while issue-oriented, were invariably infused with his own personal bias against Mr. Trump. And who will ever forget CNN’s Candy Crowley actually jumping in to help Barack Obama “answer” a question by feeding him false information in the middle of the debate with the hapless Mitt Romney?
But here’s the thing: This entire structure and process exists because traditional, establishment Republicans who have always run the Party’s governing apparatus are scared to death of the news media, and because they have always taken advice on how to deal with the media from the very same firms that provide similar advice to the Democrats. So these GOP squishes have always gone along with the pretense that propaganda outlets like NBC and ABC are staffed with real journalists, not political activists beholden to the Democrat Party. Once Republicans accede to that false pretense, they have quite simply lost.
Trump makes no such pretense, and has spent the past four years now demonstrating how to keep winning despite near-100% negative, often false news coverage, but those lessons have been lost on establishment Republicans. We can always hope they will learn between now and next fall, but don’t bet the farm on it.
There is also a huge lesson in all of this for the people at Fox News who make a habit of jumping to the defense of other media outlets whenever they are singled out by a president or his administration. These morons even came to the defense of the infantile jerk Jim Acosta last fall when the White House temporarily revoked his press badge.
But today, with no one in the fake media coming to their defense as they are blacklisted by the DNC, will Bret Baier, Wallace and John Roberts finally figure out that their “colleagues” at all the fake news outlets are neither their friends nor worth defending?
Probably not. But again, we can always hope.
That is all.
