We checked the Times web site at 4:45!

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2021

Our surprise at what we found: Three quick takeaways from today's proceedings:

Loathing the lawyers: On MSNBC, there was a lot of snark and a lot of loathing directed at Trump's lawyers. Might we state an obvious point?

In many ways, a lawyer is only as good as his or her client. In this case, the lawyers' client happens to be a deeply disordered person.

Under our system, a profoundly disordered person gets to have a legal defense too. It actually isn't the lawyers' fault if that leaves them with amazingly little to offer. 

(For ourselves, we thought the lawyers did a much better job than Brian and Nicole did.)

Loathing MSNBC: We really grew to hate the propagandistic stylings of Brian and Nicole today. (We're sure they're both nice people.) Simply put, we're now living within wholly segregated, wholly propagandistic journalistic realms. In the end, you can't run a modern nation that way, though the "journalists" can earn huge salaries.

(For obvious reasons, you aren't allowed to know how huge the salaries actually are. They're well paid for their obedience.)

As seen at the New York Times: At 4:45 P.M. Eastern, we briefly checked the New York Times web site. Amazingly, these were the banner headlines atop the site's front page:

Channeling Trump's Style, Lawyers Conclude Incendiary Defense
After Trump Team Tries to Rewrite Narrative, Senators Move to Questions

Sometimes, you just have to laugh, if only as a way of maintaining your sanity. That said, long live traditional journalism! Such journalism is dead.

  1. "In many ways, a lawyer is only as good as his or her client. In this case, the lawyers' client happens to be a deeply disordered person."

    This is one of the stupidest things I've ever read. A disordered person doesn't deserve a disordered defense. He or she deserves a competent defense.

    Trump's lawyers are being reviled because they were as disordered as Trump. They told numerous lies, they presented irrelevant information, they failed to address objections raised to their own statements, they were disorganized, repetitive and even attacked Democrats using statements that had nothing to do with Trump's actions or the accusations against him. It was a terrible performance.

    If a lawyer were defending a crook, he is not expected to behave like a crook during that defense. Somerby's proposal here is ludicrous and clearly wrong. As incompetent as Trump's own lawyers were today.

  2. "For ourselves, we thought the lawyers did a much better job than Brian and Nicole did."

    In fairness, Brian and Nicole are not lawyers so they should not be held to the same standard.

    1. If Brian and Nicole tried to be lawyers, they would be 10 times better than Trump's gang today.

  3. "Simply put, we're now living within wholly segregated, wholly propagandistic journalistic realms."

    Wholly segregated? Propagandistic? I watched on CBSN and there was not editorializing, it was strictly the proceedings (except during breaks). I could have watched PBS or listened to NPR, or watched on Youtube or CSPAN, or another network. How then is the media segregated? Where was the propaganda? Somerby apparently made a choice to watch something and now regrets it, but that doesn't mean he had no choice about what to watch.

  4. I find the NY Times description accurate. The failure of the Republicans to take this hearing seriously is the most incendiary part. They are telling MAGA rioters that what they did was A-OK with them, and they are giving Trump license to continue his assault on democratic government. That is incendiary in my book. NY Times is behind a paywall, so I do not know what they intended, but I find their headline fully consistent with my take on what happened.

    If Somerby wanted a Republican headline, it might have been "Conservatives pleased as punch with half-assed clown show" because that's what happened too.

    And Somerby is upset about the supposedly liberal-pleasing headline, so that tells you where he is coming from. Next time he tries to talk about us liberals or we over here in Our Town, you can laugh in his face.

  5. They years take their tole. Bob once did try to appraise the veracity of evidence presented, logic, who is clearly stretching or ignoring the truth.
    now it all comes down to..... "I hate them."

  7. "In many ways, a lawyer is only as good as his or her client."

    How cute.

    Does it mean, then, dear Bob, that David Cicilline, the Rolls-Royce-driving impeachment manager, is "only as good" as Rhode Island drug dealers he used to defend?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

  9. Here, dear Bob, some real media criticism for you, from Matt Taibbi:

    https://taibbi.substack.com/p/the-bombhole-era-0cb

    ...although, we must say, his "both sides do it" schtick is tiresome.

    No, dear Bob and dear Matt, both sides don't do it. Fox News has its share of goebbelsian establishment dembots, while your liberal-zombie media orgs - your msnbc, your cnn, your wapo - don't have a single humyn being working for them. Oh well.

    1. Is this the greatest thing to happen to you, since Trump gave the Establishment a HUGE tax break?

  10. I never knew people still have powers and could make things happened. My husband left me for another woman three months ago and ever since then my life have been filled with pains sorrow and heart break because he was my first love whom i have spent my entire life with. A friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of a spell caster called Dr.Ogudugu that he can bring back lover within two days, i laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she consulted the great priest on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after 2 days my husband called me for the very first time after three months that he is missing me and he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through. He came back to me and now we are happy together. I still can’t believe it, because it highly unbelievable. Thank you Dr.Ogudugu for bringing back my lover and also to my lovely friend who interceded on my behalf, for anyone who might need the help of this great priest here is his email address: greatogudugu@gmail.com/WhatsApp +2348063739701

  12. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
