Hello, He Lied: Newest Owner of The New Republic (and Former Obama Adviser) Claims Magazine Will Not be Liberally Biased; Then Conducts Suckup Interview to Old Boss/Prophet, Obama

Why does every establishment news organization, supposedly unique in its mission of providing "truth" to its audience, make it its core mission to lie to the customer?

The new New Republic claims it will be free of party ideology or partisan bias. I honestly donít know exactly what Hughes means by this, but it strikes me as a very bad start. A New Republic that is liberalism-free has no reason to exist (much as a National Review that is conservatism-free is pointless). A liberal New Republic that pretends itís free of liberalism while it attempts to advance liberalism is a huge step backwards. After all, why should the reader trust a bunch of committed liberal opinion journalists if they canít even be honest about what they are or what they are trying to do?

If the first thing out of someone's mouth is a childish and stupid lie -- not even a clever one, not the sort of lie that makes you think "Oh my that's wicked" -- why stick around for the second thing?

His second public action as TNR owner was to betray the promise he made in the first.

Based on that interview with Obama, Iíd say Hughes is not striving that hard or heís not good at what heís striving to do or ó most likely ó he only wants to appeal to Democrats, so he only wants to do enough to seem to be free of party ideology and partisan bias to Democrats. Is this enough to make our target audience feel good about the nourishment theyíre getting from this source? The good feeling is some combination of seeming like professional journalism while satisfying their emotional needs that are intertwined their political ideology and love of party.

Looks like TNR has decided to be Catfish: The Magazine.

Yeah I don't really know what Catfish is either but I'm informed it's a Topical Reference Which Will Appeal to the Youth Demographic. I made the grotesque error of watching part of Saturday Night Live this week (I remembered it even existed) and found them referencing it in their inimitable style, by which I mean, it wasn't funny.

6 Ace, most of the left lies. It's part of their MO.

All you have to know about The New Republic is that even thought hey are anti-gun, they printed Obama's lie about skeet-shooting as if it was a positive.

Which means they are simply Obama stenographers and propagandists.

I will therefore not believe one word they write.

19 I posted this on the last thread just before this went up, so I'm going to repost it. I think it applies, but if it's a hijacking, just let me know. I'll let it go.



You know, I think I'm really late to this party, but I want to confess.

Four
years ago (and in some cases, longer) some very alarmist voices started
popping up here. I never dreamed they were anything more than tin-foil
types. I mean, martial law? Repealing the 22nd? Confiscating guns?
Please. That shit just doesn't happen in the States.

Yet here we
are, in 2013, actively discussing amongst ourselves whether or not we
are actually willing to die on this hill. Not in some romantic
metaphorical sense, but in a stone-cold literal one. That's scary.

What's
scarier is that those alarmist voices don't sound alarmist anymore.
They sound practical. It can be easily argued, through well-supported
empirical and tangible facts that Obama's entire Presidency has been
leading to this: the disarming and enslaving of the populace.

The
media has become an arm of the government in a sense never before seen.
Bias we've seen. Advocacy and collusion we haven't - not on this scale.


The takers have overpowered the makers in terms of voting
demographics and planted our economy into what is - in my eyes - an
unrecoverable spin.

The government has begun making all the
moves one would expect if they were to declare themselves above the
people. They are positioned to declare us their subjects, and half of
the country is screaming in ecstasy. The other half is marveling at how
easily it's happened, mourning the Republic, and quietly preparing for
what looks more and more likely to be the inevitable showdown.

When
I swore my oath, I always knew it was possible for me to die defending
my country. I just never imagined it was possible for me to die
defending it from my government.

And so to the question: Is this
a hill I'm willing to die on? Is this a hill I'm willing to spill my
blood in the literal sense of the word? When the metal meets the meat,
am I prepared to give my live protecting my country from itself?

Yes.

Vince, talking with Nev, tells a story.

They know what they are, they know what they are doing, and they are fully aware of how unethical it is.
They just dont fucking care, liberalism is more important than their integrity and any shred of honesty they possess. I have taken journalism classes, I have fucking seen with my own two beady right wing fucking eyes a journalism major, when he had fucking Democrat campaign materials on his desk because he was a fucking VOLUNTEER, deny any bias by the mainstream media. The very next sentence he laid into Fox as a partisan outlet. This fat fuck was a fucking free volunteer in his own time to Democrat campaigns, yet of course he would loudly say he wasn't biased. But if you believe for one minute people like that don't laugh and talk to their Democrat campaign buddies about HOW to portray news than I got a fucking bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

67 apparently it's not admitted but it is widely asserted:

In an interview, Ariel Schulman related that some viewers believe Catfish to be a fake documentary or a hoax. Morgan Spurlock, director and subject of the documentary Super Size Me, told the producers of the film during one of its initial screenings, "It was the best fake documentary I have ever seen." Comedian Zach Galifianakis also has stated that he does not believe the events in the film to be true.[4]

Kyle Buchanan at Movieline questions why the filmmakers would begin obsessively documenting Nev's online relationship so early on, and argues that it is highly improbable that media-savvy professionals like the Schulmans and Joost would not use the Internet to research Megan and her family before meeting them.[5] Others have also questioned the trio's decision to begin filming, as well as the seemingly improbable coincidence of them catching everything of importance to the story on film as it happens. It has also been pointed out that the group's supposed movements in Catfish are not documented in their public blog postings at the time. [6]

IIRC, the guys who did it are saying oh yes it's totes true, sure it's edited a lot but it totally happened.


Personally, I think that they realized fairly early on that the person was a fake and then decided to go along with it and film it and then put it out there as a documentary. So not necessarily faked but more two sets of people scamming each other.

110 Jonah Goldberg says "I wish the new New Republic long life and prosperity (as I do for all print opinion magazines)." Well, I don't. I used to read the magazine in the 1980s, at first because Stanley Kauffmann's film reviews (yes, I'm an art film nerd). Back then, they alsopublished plenty of neo-conservative writers as well as liberals. Then, in the 1990s,all of the neo-cons (Krauthammer, Fred Barnes, et. al.) jumped ship and started writing for a new magazine, The Weekly Standard. Kauffmann may still be alive, but Ingmar Bergman and Fellini and Kurosawa are dead, so what's the point of reading The New Republic now?

Ididn't think that Catfish was fake.

But, all I have to judge it on is the intro to the MTV show. Regardless, the MTV show has proven that the old adage "on the Internet no one knows you are a dog" is even truer today.

When my older son was active in Scouts some years ago, I had this discussion with his Scoutmaster (retired Army major), and his opinion was that the Boy Scouts would continue to fight the Gay Mafia, but if they ever folded, that the Boy Scouts would be dead in five years.

A lot of long-time Scout leaders, the volunteers that make Scouting work, will probably leave Scouting because of this. The "professionals" who get their rice bowls filled by the United Way, will tell us that "all is well".

Scouting meant so much to boys who had a rough home life, and could mold them into good men. But it's more important to appease the Gay Mafia.

I guess we shall see how bad it gets. Can gay adults keep their hands off 11- 15 year old boys? Will straight boys put up with it? I've see occasions where there were obvious gays in Scouting, and the boys all caught on pretty quick. You can't bullshit 11-12 years olds that easy. Tolerance lessons don't work on them that well, when it comes to stuff like that.

161Junior,

It may be better to just start training up the kids in small groups on MOUT skills anyway.

The Boy Scouts have been slowly turning lib since the '90s anyway.
---------------------------------------
That political leanings won't affect the LDS Church troops, though. The troop leadership is chosen strictly by the local church members. The BSA organization has no say in that. And the LDS Church is quite socially conservative. So if the local Scout Masters, who all happen to be LDS, happen to disagree with the national BSA organization, guess who makes the final decision...?



@165I've read that Girl Scouts have embraced the left as well.
------------------------------------------------
My understanding is that it's been that way for quite a while. iirc, my oldest sister (who's still younger than I am) was a Brownie back in the early '80s. But I don't think any of my three other sisters were, and I don't think any of them became Girl Scouts proper either. Political leanings of the Girl Scouts organization was the excuse that my Mom gave when I asked her about it.

Not the same thing at all. Sex drive is quite different between men and women. Males have a far greater sex drive than do females. To get a more correct perspective on this, look through "Gay" eyes. Consider how a very randy heterosexual male would act towards a group of young girls. *THAT* is how a gay scoutmaster would look at young boys.

I was a scout during the period of time that is under the cloud of scandal, and I had the time of my young life and had the best Scout leadership I could imagine.

I know how vulnerable a time in my life that period was and I know that there were boys from the best and worst of homes there.

The organization I love helped hide that predators were afoot.

I am really ton about that.

Of course not all gays are pedos and not all pedos are gays and I am not going to make any pithy one liner or double entendre on that point.

I just find the entire "heartbeat" of America on sexuality/homosexuality/and "perversion" to be a total wall of white noise right now.

I argue this topic all the time. The Homosexual population is approximately 2%, but they make up something like 35% of all cases of molestation. (Don't quote me on this, look it up yourself. ) In addition to this, many homosexuals (something like 45%) admit or claim to have been themselves molested when they were children.

There are some JAMA studies on this issue. I could probably find the links, but I have to go shortly.

Anyway, to the argument that Homosexuals tend to be pedophiles, the answer is pretty much "yes."

It is a mental disorder right now, but just as gays mobbed, threatened and brow-beat the American Psychiatric Association back in 1973 to declare that Homosexuality is not a mental disorder, so to will the forces of Pedophilia (mostly the same groups) eventually succeed in mainstreaming and normalizing the behavior.

I could point you to half a dozen links on this subject. I've left them in previous message threads on another website.

234 "...themselves free of perversions?"

Could you define perversions.
27 8X10 color glossy photos with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one, explaining what each one is to be used as evidence against me in a court of law would be helpfulas part of your presentation.

236 I'm confused. Hasn't the New Republic always been liberal--like, since the 20's or so?

237 Category : Seduction
Entrants :
Jeannie - she of the perfect stomach and magically delicious curve - revealing costume. A little control freak with a mean streak. Took forever to get to "Master" despite YEARS of " let me grant your every wish" . I really believed something was deeply wrong with Larry Hagman's character as a kid.

Samantha - smoking hot but another control freak : Huge Mother in law baggage issues.

Mary Anne - cute and sexy in a girl next door way but you always sensed that there was a radical feminist waiting to emerge.


Winner: Ginger - mistress of the double entendre " I have been on this island for years. Can you get me off?" with a buttery vanilla sugar voice that always suggests saxophone, and satin sheets. The things her lips and tongue did when she said "Gilligan" made teenage boys lock the doors and throw fears of blindness aside. I can still almost imaginary-smell her through the camera all these years later. Honey coconut smoky hawt.



Also The New New Republic Sucks -

241 Let me get this straight...You can't sell any food product in this country without knowing it calorie count, promote so much as a tube toothpaste with being able to back up any promoted features or benefits, yet there are no rules to govern the claims of media and/or political products?.....scandalous I say...Certain the Schumer Truth Squad will be all over this by the weekend...but he must hurry, because Governor Cuomo is doing all he can to get the first truth in media/politics legislation passed tonight.
