Pumas 4 Palin

Why I don’t watch TV news shows, anymore, at all..

Tea Bag Puma

An excellent puma blog, Autographed Letter Signed, has an exquisite new post, detailing the exact same sense as this blog has experienced over the last two years. Namely, stunned exasperation at the media’s role during the recent election cycle, and heartache at the way Democrats turned against the Clintons, Hillary specially.

As painful as  all of that recapitulation is, this post by Kathy Barkulis is a must read. It’s simply, Pure Puma.

Why do I post it here? Well, turns out Barkulis is the same person as the lady we saw during the CNN-Tax Tea Party confrontation video. Who knew?

When I finished reading that post, and only then found out that the author was that same person as in the video below, believe me,  it was a deja vu moment, a Harriet Christian moment, if you will. That, is not too surprising either, as it was exactly a year ago that that lady burst on the scene, and won herself over as the original she-puma.

Do go and read the post. Click on the image.

 

Original Post Begins Here:

All Pumas know what sort of perfidy the media is capable of. For well over an year, we watched Hillary being savaged, Sarah being maligned mercilessly, candidate BO being praised sky-high and then totally venerated. PUMAs are well-versed in the media dirty tricks, lack of conscience, misogyny, and virulent left-leaning talent.

Shutthefreudup was borne of such angst. During the ’08 campaign, the media bias was well documented in all pumasphere and here as well. See here, here, here.  As noted  here,  Zombie wrote brilliantly about the meta game that went on during the longest presidential campaign ever!

Now, comes the Tea Party coverage. This video is just one reason why I gave up television two years ago, and am not likely to go back to it ever. The woman reporter virtually smears a whole movement as being as Nobamist, picks out the extreme nut job on view and totally ignores everyone else. She even mentions Fox, as a reason to devalue any citizen complaint, Nice!

To do anything activist nowadays is automatically directed agains the president, wow! What a change a couple hundred years have brought, too bad the King didn’t have access to CNN back during the Boston Tea Party days!!

Here is Rachel Maddow of some other network, she chortled endlessly over her own naughty thoughts.

Enough already! Giggles over tea bags?  Sex and the City caused Carrie and us to blush about this one, delightfully enough, some SIX years ago!!  

For crying out loud, Rachel, you really are late for this party.

The last word on the Media’s idiocy must go to the great Bob Somerby of  Daily Howler, to wit:

For Maddow, Tuesday would be the fourth straight night of utterly juvenile dick jokes. (Last night’s program made five.) And so, a familiar dodge appeared. After treating us to a few quick dick jokes, Maddow pretended to explain why she’s been behaving this way: “I can’t help myself,” she said. Again, we ask our basic question: Has anyone on cable news ever been this disingenuous? [sic]

Sadly, this is becoming a standard feature of the Maddow Show. In this utterly bogus performance, “Sunday morning Rachel” appears, apologizing for the conduct of her “Saturday evening” alter ego. Her “admission,” of course, is utterly bogus—a juvenile way to have life both ways. As of last night, the prurient host has devoted five straight nights to long strings of “juvenile” dick jokes. On two of those nights, she has pretended that she is embarrassed by these conversations. On this third occasion, she pretends that she keeps doing these things because she can’t help herself.

But the news is a very important thing. A response to this nonsense writes itself:

Beyotch! If you can’t control the things you do, you need to get yourself off the air! Stop telling yourself that you’re a Rhodes Scholar. Go somewhere else. Get some help.

[Emphasis Added]

David Shuster went on a rampage of puns, double entendres, and glib Mattews-level sound and fury.

Even the highly talented baseball broadcaster Steve Stone couldn’t have reached this level of puns and wordplay!

Does any of this matter, it’s all politics, and of the moment only, right?  Don’t we always move on to the next hot topic anyway? That, is exactly the point. For, lost in all of this is a sad, and bitter truth about the media and what it can bring about. Again, Daily Howler’s Bob Somerby:

All through the 1990s, liberals and progressives sat back and took it while Clinton, then Gore, were relentlessly savaged. (George Bush ended up in the White House.) Now, progressives sit back and take it again, as this pair of simpering chimps make a joke of “progressive” news programs.

For as long as we’ve been alive on this earth, sneering pseudos of this type have undermined progressive interests. Long ago, they helped elect Nixon. Rest assured: In their open contempt for average people, they’re hard at work on the project again.

 

Envoi:

If this post accomplishes just one thing, gets you to visit Daily Howler, and return to it often, then some good shall have been achieved. Keep howling, Bob!

    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]
  • Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Gettysburg June 30, 2013
    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]
  • #SOTUGottaBKiddingMe February 13, 2013
    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
  • New Year's Resolution to Keep the Faith! January 1, 2013
    Best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year! In the coming days there will be a great deal of debate about the goings-on in the political arena and the shenanigans in Washington. Constitutional commonsense conservatives must stay engaged and hold our “leaders” accountable to the voice of average everyday hard working Americans or we will very soon become an […]

    Instead of being responsible in this sad dispute concerning the death of Sgt. La David Johnson, CNN has shown repeatedly (here, here, and here) that it wants to have it both ways in attacking John Kelly for his Thursday remarks but bemoaning criticism of Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (Fla.). Thursday’s CNN Tonight served as one such example, whet […]

    Michael Bennett has one fervent imagination and a knack for making news.

    On Thursday, MSNBC’s Brian Williams finally mentioned the words “Russia,” “uranium” and “Clinton” in the same segment BUT it was only to dismiss President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media’s failure to cover this week’s new revelations in the growing scandal.
