Unit Stands Down

I assume the Biden presidency will be a lot like the Obama presidency, and that they will be responsive, and will be able to quickly back up what they’re saying.”

    MSM accept Dems “facts”.

  2. feelthebern says:

    I am without speech.

  3. Baa Humbug says:

    Its difficult to talk about how these people (MSM Churnalists) prostrate themselves to Obama without getting super crude about it.

  4. Snotball says:

    Suppose there really not much between the two major parties in Oz so not much to fact check when they both more of less sing from the same lefty hymn sheet.

  5. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    The hypocrisy is unending and breathtaking.

  6. Crossie says:

    Biden even said in one of his campaign speeches that he supports truth over facts. And 80 million voters bought it? Yeah, right.

  7. Scott Osmond says:

    So, the left’s propaganda departments aren’t going to attack or undermine their own side. I’m shocked!

  8. Buccaneer says:

    Of course their not going to fact check a guy that’s been caught outright plagiarising the work of others. That would be journalism and it’s way too difficult to constantly cover up the scrutiny of actual facts when you can just pretend stuff never happened like Hunters laptop

    This is like my poor dumb sister.

    *Trump is a crook*
    *His supporters are Nayzees*
    *Antifa are the good guys*
    *Trump is sacking competent people*

    “Biden isn’t corrupt”
    “Biden being corrupt is a conspiracy theory”
    “Oh my god how can you believe Trump won legitimately”

    A few things spring to mind:

    The MSM still have massive influence – why do they believe X – “because legacy media said so”.
    Even high IQ people, well educated, who ought to know better, can fool themselves.
    The left can’t throw a leader under the bus if they lose anything of strategic value.
    Leftism is hard to cure, even if the person days rational criticism of the left, emotional argument pulls them back in.
    Say “conspiracy theory” and “clever” people will believe it’s fake.
    Say “sceptic” and they will believe you despite how stupid your ideas are.

    Anyone else in the US, 10%, for the big guy and you’d at least get to a grand jury.

    “It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators.

    An op-ed appeared in my news feed yesterday published under the auspices of the ABC.

    It called Joe Biden a liar.

    I subsequently went back to find it on ABC News but couldn’t.

    It had evidently been “disappeared”.

    No more WaPo propaganda purveyors, oh noes!
    If only we had an army of Twitter fact-checkers and snitches to save us instead!

    Today we’re introducing @Birdwatch, a community-driven approach to addressing misleading information. And we want your help. (1/3)

    ^ watch the video, the example they use is funny. We never expected the new threat from the Deep State would come from the Deep Blue.
    But seriously, the slippery slope argument that Big Tech is becoming the new Stasi just gets more support as time goes on.

  13. Mother Lode says:

    But in another way nothing will change.

    They will still be examining Trump’s and conservative’s words under a microscope looking to blame them for the smudges on their own lenses, and treating the words of Dimocrats and progressives as the very measure of truth against which other facts stand or fall.

  14. NoFixedAddress says:

    MSM live in fear of Biden regime just like they did with the Obama regime.

  15. dover_beach says:

    ‘Fact-checking’ was always propaganda.

  16. cuckoo says:

    Yesterday’s evening news had one item on Joe Biden. That he had stopped off at a bagel store on his way back from church.

  17. Professor Fred Lenin says:

    There is no need to check the democrims , checkers sick of hearing and reading lies day after day ,it is causing huge mental problems for our checkers ,so we have decided to wind up this unit ,for staff benefit ,and to keep the psychiatrists and hungry lawyers away . Do you know how much a case against us for wrongfull exposure costs ? An arm and both legs

    Raise your hand if you see the inherent conflict of interests in the White House “working” with the White House Press Corps to determine what is and isn’t propaganda.

    “We expect reporters covering the White House to operate in good faith and tell their audience the truth, and this White House will do the same. We are moving forward with that mutual understanding,” said T.J. Ducklo, the deputy White House press secretary. “Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated, and we’ll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward.”

    The good old days of Kayleigh inviting the hostile press in and rhetorically tackling them head on (or ignoring them but at least visibly ignoring them) have sadly gone.

    If the media said something Trump didn’t like he labelled it “Fake News” and he would just insult them to their faces and move on.
    If the media say something Harriden don’t like it will be labelled “disinformation” and the offenders will no longer be permitted to be in the same room.
    A lot of symmetry there despite the differences.
