The Weekly Standard: Republicans Should Be Condemning Sinclair Media and Its "Deeply Unserious" Claim that the Biased Leftwing Media is Leftwing and Biased

The cucks continue padding their Clip Reels for their job applications to work in the leftwing media.

Stuff about Amazon omitted. That's a different question and requires a different response.

For now, let's just focus on the claim that the leftwing media is not itself very biased, and therefore Republicans are charged with decrying the bias of Sinclair media. Or, at least, not decrying the bias of the leftist media.

Editorial: What If Trump Were Obama, and Sinclair Were CNN?
The right response for the wrong reason.

6:40 AM, APR 04, 2018 | By THE EDITORS


Republicans have been awfully quiet over the last few days, and they probably should have been. The question is why they were so quiet.

...

And what about the controversy over Sinclair Broadcasting? The Maryland-based media company, which owns 193 local television stations in more than 100 media markets, is reported to have required news anchors at Sinclair-owned stations to read scripts about the dangers of "fake news" (meaning left-liberal biased news) on news broadcasts. Not only that. Sinclair headquarters regularly sends its stations news segments of a politically right-leaning nature with instructions that the stations are required to run them (they're labeled "must-run").

Is this a breach of basic journalistic integrity? Is the requirement that news anchors read vaguely pro-administration boilerplate an instance of state propaganda? The answers aren't obvious. Sinclair is a private company, not a government agency, and its executives can run its newsrooms how they wish....

Suspicions about Sinclair's rightward bias were confirmed when David Smith, the company's chairman, wrote in an email to New York magazine that "the print media is so left wing as to be meaningless dribble [sic] which accounts for why the industry is and will fade away." We have our complaints about the unacknowledged dominance of left-liberal political opinions in many parts of America's news media, although Smith's remark that mainstream print media are "meaningless dribble"--together with his comment that there is a "complete lack of integrity" in print-media newsrooms--strikes us as a deeply unserious appraisal.

Let me translate: Our billionaire owner might not keep us on the make-work payroll forever. Please hire us, Atlantic! We're not like those other conservatives! We like and trust you and think you do a really good job and would like to be just like you!

[W]e wince to imagine the response among lots of famous right-wingers in the media and in Congress if the same were revealed on the other side of the media's ideological divide. If, say, MSNBC were discovered to require its anchors to recite vaguely anti-administration talking points, or if Jeff Zucker, say, were overheard grousing about the "complete lack of integrity" among conservative journalists, all hell would break loose at Fox News.

What about if, hypothetically, CNN's "media analyst" Brian "Tater" Stelter acted as a corporate propagandist absolving CNN of all the journalistic sins he actually bothered to cover, and ignored most of the charges against the network entirely?

What if CNN ran an advertising campaign similar to Sinclair's?

There would be no allowance for ambiguity and context and the distinction between private companies and public entities; it would be a scandal about mandatory agitprop and radical left-wing media bias.

We're glad Republicans aren't saying a lot of stupid things about Amazon and Sinclair. We only wish it were for the right reason.


In other words, we're glad they're not saying Sinclair is biased, because it's silly to claim the leftwing media is biased, and no one who has integrity should do either.

Guys, I know you're not quite done bilking Conservative, Inc. out of the last bits of money they're willing to set on fire to fund your cush no-influence-no-results sinecures, and I know you're still busy fighting The Only Struggle That Really Matters to the Conservative Commetariat Class -- whether formerly right-wing writers like Kevin Williamson should be permitted to write for leftwing magazines, as you hope to do in the next few quarters -- but it's time for you to leave the stage like Hillary Clinton, who you all hoped would be president, and dedicate yourself to selling Cruise Cabins at steep discounts full-time.

The liberal former Republicans understand that their time being paid for zero results to advance any cause other than their own is coming to an end. Just as Kevin Williamson debuts at The Atlantic by ingratiating himself to his new liberal confreres, declaring Victor Davis Hanson to be the Real Enemy, so too must the cucks begin pre-ingratiating themselves with their would-be future employers.


That begins by flattering their future employers and coworkers on the grounds they most desire to be flattered, and demand to be flattered: that they are not biased, and do not cook stories to favor the liberal wing of the Democrat Party, and are all-around righteous, honest, scrupulous hard-working Heroes.

This is the one matter upon which you may not disagree with the leftist media on, if you hope to secure their goodwill or even tolerance one day.

And we see now the Weekly Standard working overtime to secure that goodwill. Their Exit Strategies demand that they be able to leave one well-paid, little-work sinecure for another, and if that requires mounting vigorous defenses of the leftist media -- well, small price to pay for advancing one's career.


By the way, Kevin: I know you probably thought it sounded pretty intellectual to write etatism (accent omitted, as it would blow the formatting) and throw it in quotes as if it's a French word, but in fact it's an English word, a bastardized loanword from the French, and hence does not need the accent and does not need to be italicized. French words do not end in "-ism;" they end in -isme.

You could put etatisme in italics, as that's a French word (and add the accent aigu), or you can write etatism, no accent and no italics, as the latter is an English word.

Or you could have just used the more common English word "statism."

But you can't write the English word "etatism" and then pretend it's French.

But I hope this Appeal to Cosmopolitanisme, even if it was a bit of a faux pas, endeared you to your new liberal amis.

Coming next: Williamson tries his hand with "cooperation," with an umlaut over the second "o," the way the New Yorker writes it. Because he's writing for a Smarter Audience now.

there's a whole backstory. A comic, who I think is Algerian-French, named something like Dieudonne, is notoriously anti-semitic. For reasons I don't quite understand, he calls Jews "ananas" to get around anti-anti-semitism speech codes, and, I'm guessing, makes hilarious jokes about ananas going into les fours (ovens).

I don't get why he says 'ananas" but I know he does.

109 there's a whole backstory. A comic, who I think is Algerian-French, named something like Dieudonne, is notoriously anti-semitic. For reasons I don't quite understand, he calls Jews "ananas" to get around anti-anti-semitism speech codes, and, I'm guessing, makes hilarious jokes about ananas going into les fours (ovens).

I don't get why he says 'ananas" but I know he does.

Posted by: ace at April 04, 2018 06:37 PM (8rNrN)

Never heard any of that.

Je suis un ananas specifically is a phrase used by a creepy pineapple on Telefrancais! which was meant to teach Canadaian kids French. Also frequently shown in my high school french class.

I wrote that because I was amused by the though of Bill Kristol trying to impress someone with his grade-school level French.

122 ot, but I just listened to Scott Adams link from sidebar.

The whole thing with the wall, which I have not seen anyone mention, is that the Left, and especially the democrats, want the wall to be PDT's closing of Guantanamo.


They are still bitter that their fey golfer made such a stupid promise and was unable to get it done in 8 years in spite of all the crimes and horrors he committed attempting it.

So they want this reasonable and realistic promise of a wall to be comparable to it.

It is never about what is good for the country, but always about destroying the country and winning.

"JE VOUS PARLE D'ANANAS"

In one of the videos for which he was arrested, he changed the song of Annie Cordy "Hot Chocolate" into "Shoah nanas."

...

Shoah refers to the Holocaust, so I guess "Shoah nanas" is some kind of way to say "Holocaust pineapples." He also speaks of wanting to be understood as 'hot pineapples," which I think he means to mean "baked pineapples."

There is repetition of short, useful phrases that help your brain remember them in context, and the more difficult words are understood through context. I really enjoyed them, and enjoyed dreaming in French for a week afterwards (not. it's tiring.)

It's hard to imagine that level of cynicism, that they'd change heartfelt political views instead of doing something else. It's not like punditry pays well.

337 well the actual phrase is tout de suite. The first and second word are slurred together into a "tood."

suite means in a row, which you might hear in "en suite" referring to rooms in a row (one room opening into the next, or a master bedroom opening directly into the master bath).

tout de suite thus means "all in a row," but it has acquired the meaning of "immediately" or "in the next second."

364 I chose to believe Gowdy for a while because he seemed to have some fight in him, unlike Issa and Chaffetz. Now, He is just one more sell out.

365 Bill Kristol and his entire operation is so foul and maloderous that it could knock a buzzard off a three day old gut wagon.

366 Kristol prefers the Deep State, wants the Obamas back in the White House and thinks the Fake News is doing a great job.

What a tool.

367 199 i had tried watching a french law and order rip-off called "Spirals" or "Gears" but it was boring and also my french was really bad and I couldn't undertstand a word they said, except for simple shit like "l'advocate."

I watched a couple of foreign Netflix shows this week - Hotel Beau Sejour (really good) and Tabula Rasa (slow but interesting).
They both claim to be in "Flemish" but they sound different.
Although they do both sound like pidgin German with some English thrown in but spoken with a French accent.

370 When I was a wee lad "weekly" was pertinent because there was no 24/7/365 fake news tsunami sweeping across the social landscape. Those weekly magazines, Life, Colliers, Look, they all went bye-bye when the TV antennas started to sprout up like evil mushrooms. Now, that was over a half century ago so why does anything even think about calling itself weekly today? We live in a minute-ly world now, certainly not monthly, weekly, or even daily, but minute-ly. If you don't like the fake news you hear right this instant, just wait a minute and you will hear it again in a slightly different accent and wording. Same message, though.... Fake.

371 Completely off-topic, but does anyone have any good advice on to search the blog here for a specific comment? It was something vaguely remembered from the comment thread sometime back about frightening/supernaturally-themed songs.

I used to like Kristol when he was on McLaughlin. Seems like he's gone 'round the bend.

I think you're probably right. A lot of people, like Kristol, have been tactically advocating positions they don't actually hold based on the belief the question would never come up. Virtually the entire Republican delegation to Congress has been raising money on an anti-abortion plank with the same understanding.

375 Backtrack---

I think the nickname "Trey" is given to kids who are Soandso Whatshisface III.
Y'no, just as Soandso Whatshisface, Jr. might go by "Junior" or "Junie."
I've met a few Treys and Junies over the years.

As far as Gowdy's concerned, I guess I could look it up, couldn't I? *sigh*
Yep. Harold Watson Gowdy III.

376 "It actually makes him look like a pretentious blowhard who flounces around like a ponce."

Posted by: Weekly Standard Editor at April 04, 2018 06:39 PM (jS2zB)

Isn't that a bit redundant? I mean, if you flounce and your're not a female, you are a ponce. Or a poof. Or a poofter. Or a Nancy. Or a Nellie. Or a fag. Or a faggot. Or a queen. Or a fairy. Or a pansy. Or a Butt Bandit. Or a Rump Ranger. Or a Fudge Packer. Or a Gerbil Stuffer. And now, continuing in our Francophilic Language Studies 101.....just put a le in front of it. As in le poof. Or le poofter. Le Nancy. Le Nellie. Le fag. Le faggot. La reine. Le fee. La pensee. Am I a Renaissance kind of guy or what?

377 Marvelous Ace! Nailed it. Their faux 'Superiority Complex' is so transparent, they obviously can't see it. They believe they are the smartest person in the room, but are actually one of the most misinformed, ignorant people on the planet! I always new the 'news' was biased, but what finally hit me on the head these last two years, is that these creatures are stupid. Not your regular kind of stupid. No. We're talking weapons grade stupid. They know nothing about anything and lack any cognitive ability to even recognize their incompetence. I'm pretty confident Kevin believes you just paid him a big complement! You are awesome, Ace.

NO!

1) You can't get an interview with Fidel Castro.

380 In Kevin's defense, he always used snooty words--he makes no effort to hide his elitism--and he easily could have written that column at NR.

But I think he underestimates what Trump offers to libertarians, particularly when contrasted with what Dems offer. Tax cuts and regulatory reforms are no small things. Neither is the control and direction of the federal courts. Under Trump, the libertarian-leaning Federalist Society, which favors robust 1st and 4th Am protections, picks our federal judges. Trump is also suspicious of the use of military force abroad than are other, supposedly more libertarian Republicans like Cruz or Rubio. His recent comments about leaving Iraq should be welcome to libertarians. And when it comes to personal stuff, like accepting gay marriage or indulging in lustful behavior, Trump is the best Republicans have to offer, even though he enjoys deep support from Evangelicals. Trump isn't great on the entitlement state, but he would have happily repealed Obamacare if the Republicans had put a full repeal bill on his desk. And, of course, let's not forget that he did away with the individual mandate.

Hillary would have offered more taxes, more regulations, more spending (esp. on entitlements), more foreign adventurism, and less-liberty oriented federal courts. She may have been slightly better on trade, but the difference would have been mostly rhetorical.

In my view, the choice is a no brainer for those concerned with libertarian policy.

That was such a boringly dull article.
