Proving Your Critics’ Point

Or, in a more long-winded turn of phrase not really suited for a headline, “in order to prove that we are not, in fact, those things of which we’ve been accused, we’re going to do exactly what we’ve been unfairly accused of.”

Not a new tactic, nor is it a particularly effective one, as we’ve seen every single time rag-headed, barbarian, cave-dwelling savages of a certain “faith” have tried to “prove” that they are not, in fact, violent, savage barbarians willing and eager to murder in response to even the slightest of insults by, you guessed it, savagely and barbarically murdering people in response to even the slightest of insults.

But the members of the EneMedia aren’t exactly known for being unduly overburdened by an abundance of intellect, so it didn’t surprise His Imperial Majesty none when they decided to counter the claim that they’re a tightly knit, well-coordinated bunch of one-eyed, fanatical propagandists by proposing to, you guessed it again (yes, we really do have the smartest readers in the world), simultaneously publish a flood of entirely identical opinion columns in a very tightly knit, well-coordinated display of fanatical propaganda.

BOSTON (AP) — A Boston newspaper is proposing a coordinated editorial response from publications across the U.S. to President Donald Trump’s frequent attacks on the news media.

“We are not the enemy of the people,” said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe, referring to a characterization of journalists that Trump has used in the past. The president, who contends he has largely been covered unfairly by the press, also employs the term “fake news” often when describing the media.

The Globe has reached out to editorial boards nationwide to write and publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what the newspaper called a “dirty war against the free press.”

As of Friday, Pritchard said about 70 outlets had committed to editorials so far, with the list expected to grow. The publications ranged from large metropolitan dailies, such as the Houston Chronicle, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Miami Herald and Denver Post, to small weekly papers with circulations as low as 4,000.

Big surprise there.

Proving what vitally important, free-thinking, independent individualists they are by simultaneously publishing the same exact article in various bird cage liners across the nation.

It really is becoming intolerably difficult to parody those clowns.

So instead of doing that, we’ll spend a few moments wondering what might have happened to their carefully scheduled “heroic” response had their nemesis, President Trump, really been every bit the Hitler that they constantly accuse him and his supporters of being.

On second thoughts, let’s not. We really can’t stand the smell of crematoria ovens.

Thatisall.

El Globo once upon a time, was a decent newpaper.

I can’t remember when, but I’ve been told it was.

Man, that’s a lot of trees and rope. And a fuck-ton of assembly. Can we wait until it’s not so hot out?

There is so much wrong with this Drudge headline that I am loath to read the “news” article. Nun busted smuggling cocaine in high heels
