Journalistic corruption

The good old days. I wonder who Ingray was.

Of the four newspapers that employed me during my checkered, 30-year career, two are defunct,* and the two remainders are not doing well. I am referring to the Houston Chronicle and The Times-Picayune. The latter, a New Orleans publication, has teamed up with the Baton Rouge paper to cut costs and hang on.

Both the Houston and New Orleans newspapers were powerhouses, especially the Chronicle which was in the top 10 circulation-wise in the nation. Nearly everyone who worked there voted Democrat, including me, but the papers remained almost entirely nonpartisan which is how genuine journalism functions.

That has changed, but not just at those two newspapers. Almost the entire news media have become partisan, pushing the Democrat Party line. All conservatives know this, and some Democrats do too.

Two glaring examples appeared over the past few days. I am sure there are many more, but my two previous workplaces have done this to support their party in Washington D.C.:

They are ignoring completely the Afghanistan disaster caused by the Democrat Cabal in the White House.

Neither has anything about the situation on its website. Nothing! It is astounding.

Their coverage demonstrates two things: One is slavish White House support. Two is how trivial our minds have become. What are those two papers publishing? Sports, entertainment, dining, street construction and covid, covid, covid. Most of it is pure blather.

Speaking of publishing powerhouses, and to their credit, The New York Times and The Washington Post are reporting Biden’s Afghanistan mess very well. I know it must pain them. Good.

Five minutes of good cheer

Sky News Australia never ceases to inform and entertain, especially the delightful Rita Panahi. And there’s the stupidity of Hunter Biden.

Plus, Hunter’s daddy, the daffy, old man drooling in the Oval Office. What an administration! Afghanistan returned to the fanatical Taliban, something Trump had well in hand with minimal troops and cash. Trump also had ISIS virtually eliminated in his first year. We’ll soon see how the Biden Team lets them regroup.

Trump had the southern U.S. border quiet and calm. Adiós to that! Mobs pouring in. Gas prices up, inflation in general. No more energy independence. America is back on the tit of foreign oil.

With Trump in Mar-A-Lago, America is being run like Portland, Chicago, New York City and the entire State of California. Democrats rule!
