Outside Pittsburgh, belief in QAnon!

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020

The limits of human discernment: "The American people are pretty sharp!" 

Upper-end pundits have always known that they should make such statements.

"Man [sic] is the rational animal," Aristotle is said to have said. 

These standard bromides help shape the lens through which we view human conduct. According to experts, it may be time to set this framework aside.

Last evening, on NBC Nightly News, Lester Holt ran a report by Kate Snow about people in the Pittsburgh suburbs who believe in QAnon. To watch that report, click here.

A more extensive version of Snow's report had aired on the Today show. Last night, Brian Williams ran the version of the report which was broadcast on Nightly News.

MSNBC has stopped posting transcripts. We aren't going to do their work for them on this occasion. 

Meanwhile, as goes Pennsylvania, so may go this year's election. With that in mind, we'll suggest that you watch Snow's reports. 

Human discernment is limited. New technologies—talk radio, partisan cable, the Internet, social media—have turned the promulgation of bogus claims into a very big business. It's also true that these new media are prime propaganda vehicles.

(Susan Page joined hands with Candidate Pence to shut down Candidate Harris! It's what white women do! Thus spake our own tribe's very strange Lawrence O'Donnell.)

Adults believe the darnedest things! In our view, NBC News should do a lot more of this type of reporting. After that, it should possibly turn the lens on the things its own cable stars tell us.

Can a large nation survive "cable news?" We aren't entirely sure.

  1. Once you accept trickle-down, supply-side economics as a viable economic theory, it's a very short trip to believing QAnon.

    1. Right. Rationality can't really exist when the dominant paradigm is greed and power for the few.

  2. Aristotle had some weird beliefs too. Does that mean that none of humanity is rational? Somerby is an ass.

  3. "(Susan Page joined hands with Candidate Pence to shut down Candidate Harris! It's what white women do! Thus spake our own tribe's very strange Lawrence O'Donnell.)"

    That isn't exactly what O'Donnell said, but it is close enough when Somerby is throwing poo.

  4. "about people in the Pittsburgh suburbs who believe in QAnon"

    Huh? Is this QAnon you speak of some mythical creature, which some believe in and other don't, dear Bob?

    Hmm. Interesting. Could it be QAnon The Satan to your cult's God The COVID? Please tell us more, dear Bob, for we are intrigued...

  5. ...incidentally, could you give us an update on the mortality in Taiwan, dear Bob, please?

    We noticed Mongolia is still reporting zero deaths. Undoubtedly, Mongolia is COVID's chosen land, dear Bob...

    1. So sad. The turd that you worship retweeted a salacious QANON fiction that the guy who killed bin laden had to address. If a Democrat had done something as anti American as this Fox News would have called for his immediate resignation. Then again, ask James Murdoch about your favorite cable channel. The son of that pile of crap Rupert who after resigning from the board of Newscorp stated that he could no longer be associated with a company whose business model is disseminating misinformation. You know, the cable channel you and the turd you worship stay glued to. Effing brilliant tools, both of you.

  6. This is why women are no longer supporting Trump -- even the ones who were with him in 2016:

  7. "“Joe Biden’s town hall on ABC averaged 13.9 million viewers on Thursday night, easily surpassing the Nielsen ratings for President Trump’s town hall on NBC. That alone was a result virtually no one in the TV business expected. And that’s not even the most surprising part,” CNN reports.

    “The Trump town hall was simulcast by two of NBC’s cable channels, MSNBC and CNBC, but even when those channels are included in the total, Biden — on only one network — still prevailed.”

  8. "The Trump administration has rejected California’s request for a disaster declaration for six destructive wildfires that burned hundreds of thousands of acres across the state, including a massive central California wildfire that has become the single largest in state history."

    Trump likes to blame California's forest management, as an excuse for withholding aid, but 60% of the forests that have burned are national forest land, managed by the federal government. That makes them Trump's responsibility. He is, of course, withholding the money because CA is a blue state that doesn't vote for him or support his policies on immigration, the environment (car emission standards) or covid (CA wears masks). Newsom's letter pointed out the impact that withholding diaster aid in CA will have on the nation as a whole, our national economy, not solely Californians.

  16. Hello everyone I want to let the whole world know how Dr Great has restored my broken relationship with Wayne. We have been together for 3 years and he told me that he doesn’t love me like he used to. Things have not been good for about 4 months and he ended this about 2 weeks ago. I was miserable and just don’t want to go on anymore. I did text him right after this but he didn’t even respond to me. One day I was searching for a way to get him back on the Internet when I saw a post of a lady testifying of how a love spell caster called Dr Great helped her to get back her Ex, I was so desperate to get mine back so I messaged him and explained my situation to him and he instructed me to do somethings which I did and 24 hours later my boyfriend Wayne came back kneeling and begging for my forgiveness and I forgive him and our relationship was back to normal again, if your Ex broke up with you or you have any problem then you problem has come to an end because Dr Great can solve all marriage and relationship problems.
