BREAKING: Citizen dumps The One True Channel!

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13, 2018

What David Von Drehle said:
In today's column, David Von Drehle says he spoke to three non-journalist friends in the past week.

We were struck by what the third friend said. The third friend told him this:
VON DREHLE (6/13/18): The third [anecdote] involves a friend who says flatly, “I hate Trump”—yet adds that his TV is no longer set to MSNBC. “They’re just so biased and slanted, it has become painful to watch.”
We agree that The One True Channel is sometimes painful to watch. A times, the work is utterly foolish. CNN can be worse.

At tribalized times, members of tribes may differ from Von Drehle's friend. They'll be able to see the lunacy Over There, perhaps not where they themselves live.

More on The One True Channel tomorrow. Kat Stoeffel's piece in the Sunday Review was painful to read but important.

    Yeah, sometimes, during your lucid moments. But don't worry, these moments observably become more and more rare, and soon you'll be able to enjoy it without unwelcome distributions.

    1. Watch the ignorant lying sack of shit salute a North Korean general.

      In addition he lied about parents of American fallen heroes which kind of encapsulates in one episode all the despicable character traits of this treasonous bastard.

      I will put these in numbered sequence to help Comrade DinC keep track of what a shitstain his hero is.

      1. It shows him to be a lying sack of shit.
      2. It shows him to be an ignorant jackass lying sack of shit.
      3. It shows him to be a shameless ignorant lying sack of shit using fallen heroes to puff himself.

  2. First is cable news, where you have panel after panel, night after night, panels of journalists and reporters, talking about the latest on Trump. The first two words you hear 90 percent of the time from the panelists are the most lethal words, I think, in the language today: “I think.” I don’t care what somebody thinks. I want to know what they know. So you have this layer of instant gratification, instant news, and this incessant race to produce stories. There’s no checking. It’s just bam, bam, bam. That’s because Trump, whether you like him or not, is catnip for the cable ratings, and catnip for The New York Times.

    1. "the most lethal words, I think, in the language today: “I think.”

      You uttered your self-described "most lethal words." Oh, the irony.

      At any rate, it's preferable that people indicate that they are stating an opinion or speculation by saying "I think", than to have people state something as fact that is not factual.

    3. So you don't recognize intended irony when you see it.

  3. I have turned off the nightly national network news in order to listen to Chris Hayes. He does have the panels too, but he asks intelligent questions and his panelists have backgrounds that are relevant to the specific topic under discussion.

    In contrast, the nightly news with anchors present sound bites accompanied by pictures and do not give any depth on any topic. About 10 minutes is taken up by some sappy feel-good feature about a dog that found its master or a kid who donated his allowance to a good cause. I find it a total waste of time, with the illusion of being informed about anything. The local news is slightly better.

    It is hard to know what someone is complaining about when they refer to bias. Is that person upset because MSNBC doesn't repeat the same lies as Fox? Are they Never-Trump Republicans who don't like the Democratic perspective? Or are they unable to separate the opinions of particular panelists from that of the celebrity hosts? I dislike Chris Matthews intensely and will not ever listen to him, but he isn't the same as Chris Hayes. Rachel Maddow I can take or leave. I like Lawrence O'Donnell and dislike Andrea Mitchell, who is a Hillary-hater from way back. I don't watch Morning Joe, so have no opinion of them. But I do not see the lineup as a monolith, so it is hard to know what kind of bias is at hand without knowing which hosts this person disliked.

    I find CSPAN painful to watch. When? When they are accepting viewer calls and conservatives call in on the liberal line. The expression on the moderator's face is very pained, sometimes. John Oliver called him the most patient man on TV. But would that make me stop watching CSPAN?

    So this anecdote makes no sense, and neither does Somerby.

  4. GAAKK! Bob worries about the painful partisanship of CNN and MSNBC. While trying to write about the National News Media ignoring the antics of the most influential channel.

    I guess there is painful and just too painful.

    1. Well, he did take a detour there a couple of days ago to show us Tucker Carlson's political wins and Steyn's brilliant comedic framework. So there's that.
