That damned News

What's Mallard raving about today?

ACORN, News.

The lag is not kind to Mallard when it comes to this fake outrage.

The Big Lie no longer cares if it's been debunked; the believers believe because they want to believe, not because it's true. (Just ask the Dittohead faithful about their lords and masters. "...Oxycontin? Sex tour? I ain't never heard about any of that! Nope! ...George W. Bush? War hero! Protected America from the Viet Cong...just like he protected us from Osama bin Laden!")

I think the employee who actually had contacted police after deserves his job back AND an apology from the news organizations that ran the film and most importantly from the people who made the film.

I don't think highly of average folk who fake federal crimes for any reason. That's left to the authorities because the authorities know when it's fake and when actual human lives are at risk.

Because otherwise you get this situation: where someone who has done the right thing had it been an actual crime ends up looking bad because it was fake, but the actions they took due to the nature of the crime leave them largely unable to defend themselves.

But then, maybe that's why the fake pimp chose to present it that way. There's other types of fraud to chose from.

Tog said...

Almost forgot: I'm very well acquainted with the ACORN story from my local paper, and I never watch Tinsley's asterisked FOX News.

Tinsley, you LIE.

NotannonNotcow said...

At least Mallard is admitting that Fox doesn't broadcast news.

Kip W said...

Yeah, well, Tin Eye didn't see it on his TV news! It wasn't covered at all on GIRLS GONE WILD volumes III, VI, or VIII, or on whatever that thing was he was watching around hours 50 through 75 of 'research.'

Mallard Fillmore supports privatizing government functions.

Privatized embassy guards hire child prostitutes for drunken orgies.

Mallard Fillmore supports hiring child prostitutes for drunken orgies!

But ... that's not news.

I wonder (not really) when we will see the strip(s) discussing how (1) phony pimp and phony prostitute appear to have broken the law*, and (2) how the "We must defund these horrible darkies" bill apparently could defund EVERY SINGLE FEDERAL CONTRACTOR**.

Tinkley doesn't know about this because he watches the (phony Fox) news.

Asshole.

*"It appears that the video and taped communications cannot be used in criminal prosecution in Maryland, under the law," said Margaret Burns, a spokeswoman for Jessamy. "The videotape was illegally obtained, and that evidence is tainted."

**Going after ACORN may be like shooting fish in a barrel lately -- but jumpy lawmakers used a bazooka to do it last week and may have blown up some of their longtime allies in the process... In other words, the bill could plausibly defund the entire military-industrial complex. Whoops.

Whoops, indeed. BTW, Tinkely, notice the use of asterisks that point to a real sites with real information, not "Fox News". Try squeezing that into your "80-90" hours of research sometime.

"Remember, readers, the newspaper that you're reading my comic strip in is all part of a leftist conspiracy!"

exanonymous said...

In other news, neocons celebrate as the US loses its Olympic bid.

Because they're patriotic.

And they want Obama to focus more on health care and the economy. And his changes they are completely against.

Because they're patriotic.

1. Yes, finally, an end to the military-industrial complex! Costs will rapidly decreases, meaning more money for social programs and science, and executives will face federal charges! Thanks, Republicans, for being so stupid that you destroyed your programs!
2. I would love to see Republicans try to condemn the bill as unconstitutional. They spent the last administration destroying the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments, and Habeus Corpus, now, they will, finally, suffer poetic justice!
2. Republicans, you are religious nuts who are forced to have huge amounts of children; I know that requires you to delude yourselves into believing that you enjoy those little brats. I, however, have no children, thus, I know the truth: Children are filthy annoying little parasites who, constantly, scream and shit themselves. Every second near them is Hell. Fuck children!

Looks like Tinsley has managed to set himself a new standard for mendacity with this one -- no small feat, all things considered.

Not only does he lie about "the news" (by which he means the evil librul media) not covering the recent ACORN lunacy ... not only are we treated to another "*Fox News" footnote instead of an actual source ... but Tinsley uses the plural "brothels" to describe the SINGLE FAKE brothel that was represented by a couple of FAKE investigators whose stated purpose was to "destroy" ACORN because, as the FAKE prostitute described it, she just KNEW that ACORN was up to no good (even though she had never even HEARD of them before she jogged past one of their offices).

Thus does Tinsley insinuate that ACORN aiding and abetting the sexual exploitation of underage children is something that has not only actually happened, but goes on ALL THE TIME, instead of being a ginned-up non-story that was virtually invented out of whole cloth by his precious *Fox News.

I'd suggest that Tinsley be ashamed of himself, but it's clear that he's genetically incapable of shame.

John Ball said...

I do a blog on Muir's "Day by Day", and that's pretty much his take on it--ACORN is running brothels. Because of a ludicrous "sting" where the ratfuckers said THEY were running a brothel.

Then again, we're talking about people who still think that there were WMDs in Iraq, so logic is not to be expected...

The artwork these past three days has been so creative.

GeoX said...

The second comment on this thread perfectly nails why Republicans are soulless, evil monsters on this issue. For why they're soulless monsters on every other issue, just look at them, fergawdsake.

Anonymous said...

You forgot some of the most offensive, racist remarks against Obama from hate-filled Republicans! Republican Hillary Clinton boasted that she, not Obama, would get "the hard working... white vote."
That mean Republican Joe Biden made this snide crack, "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." And former GOP Veep candidate Geraldine Ferraro said "If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position." By golly, you're right, the GOP is filled with bigots!

The reason wingnuts constantly obsess about race with no provocation is because they're so totally NOT racist. Natch.

Neo Tuxedo said...

Correction: Anonybrucie, I think you meant to post that on yesterday's post, not this one. I reiterate from the earlier version of this comment: you need to ease back on the amount of liquid research you pour down your gob in an ultimately futile effort to numb the shame of being a complete lying servant of the right-wing noise machine, indistinguishable from Fox News or the Republican Party.

Tog said...

Anonymous: "Nothing proves our lack of racism better than cherry-picking quotes from individuals and taking them out of context! See? Everybody's doing it! Which means, Rush, Becky, and Tinsley aren't! ...uh, somehow!!"

Dittohead "logic" at its finest.

Next up: "We loved Michael Steele, Condi Rice, and Colin Powell when those stupid n*****s knew their place! Pat Buchanan ran with 'one of those people!' David Duke said he wasn't racist! How much more rock-solid evidence do you need?"

43 U.S. Troops Have Died in Afghanistan Since Gen. McChrystal Called for Reinforcements. Obama is too busy to be bothered. As soldiers die in Afghanistan the Obamas were, selling Chicago to the Olympic committee. Yes, it's
true folks.


But yet..."The Messiah", BHO with his mate Michelle and even "The Oprah", could not pull this off. Chicago did not receive the 2016 Olympics. His ego must have taken a rather large hit.

The IOC gave him the finger. They told him, this was not about you! Would you believe he gave his presentation with a teleprompter? Yep, sure did.

The White House will no doubt spin this to be the fault of George Bush and Rush Limbaugh :). Obama + Michelle x Oprah = 0. Obama can't convince the IOC to give Chicago the Olympics, but he's going to convince Iran to give up its nukes? The "Bam" is clueless. Who knew that the Olympic committee was a bunch of racists!

Headline: Obama to take weeks to study Afghanistan strategy. Of course he cannot rush into this, but Obamacare has to be passed ASAP!

He does not want to upset the leftists, his legacy is more important. Obama is essentially saying "screw the troops, it is all about me."

Rushed Limburger said...

...And suddenly, Anonymous is concerned about the troops. Not enough to go enlist, mind you, but he has a bumper sticker.

If only he'd been doing something useful while troops were dying. Something like clearing brush. That's what a real leader does in a time of war.

It's a mystery what anonyveryspecial thinks it's accomplishing by pwning itself over and over. Good thing for it that breathing is an automatic function.

Tog said...

Yeah, why wasn't Obama doing something important, like making a video journal of the search for WMDs? Instead, he wasted his time trying to create jobs. What a bastard!

...please accept this nice shiny Internets with my compliments, Geo. You've earned it.

Bruce Tinsley, thinking he is anonymous, proves his subliteracy, inability to construct a simple argument and psychosis. His post is filled with grammatical, punctuational and structural errors. He uses Day-by-Day, a humorless incomprehensible mess of a comic, as a reference. No one takes him seriously, yet, every day, he harasses us, the superegos fighting his raging id.

Anonymous-

Rarely is it that I get riled by trolls, but go fuck yourself, royally.

You see, I'm a veteran of Iraq. I was in that hell hole for fifteen months because W decided that finding the person who actually caused 9/11 wasn't as important as paying a nickel less for gas. WMDs my ass.

I hate this stupid fucking Republican "We love the troops!" horseshit. You don't give a fuck about us. You say it so you can say that everyone else is with the terrorists.

43 troops died since Obama appointed McCrystal? Anonyhole, you must be forgetting about the 4,000 that died needlessly in a desert, 6,000 miles away from home after W said "Mission Accomplished."

Don't worry, though, I'll remember them for you, wouldn't want to take time away from you shopping for lapel pins and yellow ribbon bumper magnets. They help a lot over there, you know.

Not THAT Anonymous said...

If the war offends Anonymous so, perhaps he should organize a protest against it. "A couple of million" strong ought to do it...

GeoX said...

My very own internets! I'll treasure this day forever.

exanonymous said...

Yeah, all selfish self-centered people try to obtain bids for their country to host the Olympics in a year when they will no longer be in power. You know, just so that they can claim credit for something that is boosting the economy well after it would have any meaning for their personal campaigns.

- smacking trolls in the face with facts is always a good idea. Thank you for THAT service as well!
