That damned Left Lean

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Media.

The idea of the media "leaning left" is actually undermined by the fact that the newscaster is leaning stage left, right to the user. None of which even takes into account the fact that I don't believe one's political tendencies causes people to, literally, tilt to one side or the other.

Oh, and I object to the term "News" being applied to Fox.

He's beginning "Media Double-Standard Week" on a Wednesday?

Bruce Tinsley lecturing us about double standards? ZOMG HE DID TELL A JOKE

So he's saying that the right leaning media is actually the truth tellers? That's about as delusional as O'Reilly in the "no-spin" zone.

Especially when there's documented proof of their inability to distinguish fact from opinions pulled out of people's butts.

I'm not saying the "left-leaning media" doesn't spin sugar into castles, but at least they don't make a point of presenting themselves as the voice of truth based only on the fact that they have a different political lean.

Holy fuck, Fox News only seems right wing by comparison with the networks which have employed the likes of Glenn Beck and Michael Fucking Savage? How does Tinsley's brain not short out?

I guess because most mainstream media apply a minimal modicum of reporting and insight on White House press releases instead of parroting them outright must mean they're part of the evil Jew Run Media responsible for the police harrassment Tinman is on the receiving end of when he's just trying to drive home from O'Shitfaced Pub, dammit.

That's why I usually name myself after it.

Truce - this is scary.

My school had fall break this week (they say it started Saturday, but that was just an excuse to close all the places that sell food for the weekends) and it ended Tuesday. So this is the start of my week.

The Tinz is at college.

Also - he could be making fun of Hispanic heritage month, which starts September 15 and ends October 15. Obviously, he will continue this until next Wednesday/Thursday/something shiny.
