That damned lean to the left

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Media.

Poor, poor Republicans. If only The Media included some people who represent their viewpoint. Or even a whole channel devoted to fictionalizing the news strictly along their ideological lines.

Honestly, how can anyone say something like this with a straight face nowadays? It takes someone with a severe irony deficit to regurgitate this meme after a steady diet of Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, Savage, etc.

Oh, and...

Worst. Scansion. Ever.

When I was browsing that site, I came across this:

"NewsBusted Not on Strike!
While Leno, Stewart, Letterman, O'Brien, Ferguson, Kimmel and Colbert are all in re-runs because of the strike by the Writers Guild of America, the MRC's NewsBusted comedy video show -- with jokes about politics, Hollywood and media bias -- is fresh this week. Check out the latest two-minute comedy show now at the top of the MRC's blog: NewsBusters. And enjoy the archive of past shows."

I didn't even bother looking. Mallard's about as much of this garbage I can take for one day, and odds are it's exactly like the intellectually sterile 1/2 Hour News Hour.

And why does Mallard keep turning bald?

Man, Tinny can't even draw his own duck anymore; Mallard looks like a puppy desperate for attention, completely lacking that smug smirk we've come to know and loathe.

Also, I call severe ellipsis abuse. Sometimes three dots, sometimes four, in any case waaaay overused.

Oh, Tinny? Protip: the apostrophe in the shortened form of "them" is not optional, fool. But that scrawling is so horrible to begin with, that's the least of your problems.

Of course, DaveyK's already struck at the heart of the matter; the art may reek, but the idea of the strip is hilariously false. Sadly, I'm seeing a lot of letters in my newspaper crying because "the liberal press" doesn't focus on "good news" instead of stories about crime and war and the economy and the weather and all the other stuff that, you know, affects the lives of everyone in society.

There will always be hardcore denialists who want to pretend everything's coming up roses...well, until the subject changes to the other party, at least.

Explain how the media lean to the left, Tinsley. I dare you. Provide reasons for your lie.

That was horrible - the poetry, the drawing, the everything.

Last night, I watched "Modern Marvels: Torture Tech" on the History Channel.

Very liberal, since they attacked Christians! (The Inquisition - oh dear god.)

But what pissed me off was that they tiptoed around the US's use of torture, except stun guns not used in the war on terror.

They mentioned modern torture, and by their definitions and examples, what is done at Gitmo is torture!

But nothing was said besides 75 or 75% of all countries still use it.

I can't believe they left out Gitmo!

Liberal media my ass! (I said as much afterwards, and my mom concurred. My sister would have as will. My dad would not - he's got a cap that says "Club Gitmo".)

Why didn't Tinz devote today's comic to the liberal media's war on Christmas?

Come on, less than 2 weeks until Xmas!!!

Where are my War on Christmas rants and liberal secular PC strawpeople?

I wouldn't be suprised if a "War on Christmas" story arc starts about the middle of January.

So newspapers are just paying this guy to adverise for other people's websites?

Gold-Digging Nanny State said...

Just this morning I heard an NPR reporter asking a woman in Iowa what she thinks about the concerns that Hillary Clinton is cold and secretive.

Stupid liberal media! Trying to foist four more years of those goddam Clintons on us!

It's fair and balanced because you agree with it? Don't kid yourself, Mallard, leftists think they're just as right as you are, and unless a large portion of the population is delusional, they might have something too.

And if a large portion of the population is delusional, well, majority rules, sucks to be you, go find yourself a small activist group to leech onto to force everyone your way. You know, the kind you blame liberals of being.

Okay, so I haven't been reading this blog in a while, and I have to ask: what the fuck happened to Mallard's head? How long has he looked like this?
