Diary of disturbing disinformation and harmful delusions
“If Vladimir Putin opts to again away from invading Ukraine, even quickly, it’s as a result of Joe Biden . . . has matched each Putin chess transfer with an efficient counter of his personal.”
— Three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Thomas Friedman, Feb. 15
We are saying: Oops. With Putin launching a full-scale invasion, it seems to be like Biden’s “chess strikes” weren’t fairly as “efficient” as famed columnist Thomas Friedman advised . . .
Spot the distinction:
“Look into my eyes: I assure you . . . we’re going to finish fossil gas.” – Joe Biden, Sept. 2019
“I’ll do every part in my energy to restrict the ache . . . on the fuel pump.” – President Joe Biden, Feb. 24, 2022
We are saying: Every thing to restrict the ache? Even promoting fossil fuels? If solely.
We are saying: In his New Yorker interview, New York Instances editor Dean Baquet claims his paper works to current the “finest model of the reality” — with “political opinion held in examine by editors and enhancing.” But the Gray Lady’s “news” stories supply nothing however political bias. Certainly, it appeared each nationwide story in the course of the Trump presidency included an compulsory slam in opposition to the president. Even when Instances editors attempt to be truthful, they wind up succumbing to strain from their very own reporters, readers and left-wing allies — as in 2019, once they modified a headline a few Trump speech from “Trump Urges Unity Vs. Racism” to “Assailing Hate But Not Guns.”
We are saying: Now that Joe Biden is president, Vladimir Putin is bombing Ukraine, killing scores of innocents, transferring to beat a sovereign neighbor and igniting the most important battle in Europe in many years. However, hey, argues Washington Submit columnist Eugene Robinson, President Donald Trump divided NATO, and Biden has unified it. That’s truly removed from true, however extra necessary: Has there ever been a worse case of lacking the purpose?
