Daily Beast: Trump's So CRAZY He Complained That The Media Would Make the Annapolis Newsroom Shooting All About Him

Isn't that exactly what the media did?

What's the criticism intended here? That Trump can predict exactly what the media will do in any situation and that's bad because, um, why?

In the aftermath of last week’s deadly assault on Annapolis, Maryland’s Capital Gazette newsroom, President Donald Trump seemed annoyed.

In conversations with those close to him, the president casually aired a complaint and a prediction—that “the fake news” would “unfair[ly]” try to blame him and his demagoguing of the adversarial news coverage for the mass shooting, according to two advisers who spoke to him about the matter.

In Trump’s view, his critics in the media and Democrats would use the story of murdered journalists against him, to highlight his years-long push to delegitimize and bash those he perceived as the “enemy of the American people” at major news outlets. Furthermore, the president has repeatedly insisted that the culture and rhetoric coming from the American left is the real problem and far more likely to inspire violence than anything coming from the right, anyway—and that voters understand that.

Reached for comment on this story, White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters simply wrote back, “I refer you to the president’s public comments [from Friday].”

Both privately and publicly, President Trump has a tendency to make tragedies--including ones with body counts--about himself and his own grievances or ongoing feuds.

Oh -- Trump makes everything about Trump?

Let's check in with Jim Acosta to see what he thinks about that.



Even after the facts showed that this was due to a grudge that began under Obama (hey, maybe the killer was inspired by Obama's viciously anti-press spying initiatives?), the media has continued doubling and tripling down on this insane narrative -- and then they blame Trump for merely noticing what they're up to.

Update: THE MAN OF STEEL.

6 So the media is doubling down on a narrative that their own reporting says is incorrect. thereby proving Trump correct, and complaining that Trump is making the media make the media look bad.

52 In the sense that you can watch previews for nightly newscasts and while they mention the news items on which they will report, they always mention who is doing the reporting. As if it somehow matters who is reading off the news off the teleprompter.

Also, they like to promote their newscasts as "first on the scene" or "you heard it here first". Funny how they never promote their newscasts with "getting you all the facts, free from bias or partisanship".

I don't care about who gets there first, I care about who gets the reporting correct.

66 This is how it works. When the left criticizes anyone, it's legitimate. They are calling someone out for violating their moral principles.

When conservatives criticize anyone, there may be a chance that the critiques may make someone so angry that it will incite violence. Therefore, they are not permitted to criticize anyone. That's a privilege reserved for Democrats.

The only way is for them to stop being so petty, incompetent, lazy, and prone to printing rumor. They have to become professional, skilled, and trustworthy for quite a long time and eventually people will begin to trust them again.

No more reprinting activist press releases as "news" no more taking polls then reporting on the polls as if they are news, no more burying the lede or "guess the party" no more hiding news that hurts the narrative, no more printing nameless rumors third hand, no more "get it first, then get it right," no more "make the world a better place."

So his tweet that he shouted it and that Trump didn't respond is only true in the Lefty sense. The one where it omits the tiny detail that Trump wasn't there.

The only way is for them to stop being so petty, incompetent, lazy, and prone to printing rumor. They have to become professional, skilled, and trustworthy for quite a long time and eventually people will begin to trust them again.

No more reprinting activist press releases as "news" no more taking polls then reporting on the polls as if they are news, no more burying the lede or "guess the party" no more hiding news that hurts the narrative, no more printing nameless rumors third hand, no more "get it first, then get it right," no more "make the world a better place." Do the job right, do it well, and do it consistently and eventually, eventually people will start to trust the news again.

MSM instead fabricates FakeNews to bash Trump 24/7/365. So the sensationalize things that are boring ... Trump gets two scoops ... Trump calls MS-13 animals ...

They bury or barely report stories like Seth Rich, Fast & Furious, etc. They report stuff like Benghazi or Hillary emails with outrageous spin designed to make them less sensational or interesting so they die out there.

That's the problem. If they were just consistent and ruthless, I could even put up with the fake news and printing rumors. I could stand the press doing a bad job if they did a CONSISTENT job without regard to party or person.

178 I had to go to Walmart last night cuz the wife wanted a mattress topper. So, yeah, I risked catching TB for a cheap mattress topper. This morning the wife informs me it is a cheap and damaged mattress topper and we're bringing it back tonight. Pretty sure I'm gonna catch TB, but the wife is not gonna put up with a cheap shoddy mattress topper.

PS - I don't know why she wants one - they are made of foam and make you sweat when sleeping on them.

Sealed indictments are used to facilitate arrests. Makes it more difficult to flee. When the USM can't find a wanted def, the sealed indictment moves to the fugitive drawer & remains active. That's why there are a lot of pending sealed indictments. It's not sinister.

Probably half of them or more are drug dealing mofos who heard a rumor & fled back to meheeco.

Behavior as Identity.

If I ask you what you do, you can certainly decide how much of your behavior you wish to disclose to me (i.e. what you do for a living, what you eat, how you have sex, etc). But if I didn't ask, I really don't want to hear any of that.*

204 Sling is a total bust that is designed to make you so frustrated you will either give up trying to watch it or go back to satellite.

I tried it a couple of years and here's how it goes. You come home and really want to see your college football team play. They typically required updating the software about every two months, so delay.

If you do get linked, if it's a popular game the picture goes from somewhat decent to crap constantly and you miss a lot as it buffers.

They kept adding channels when I had it but they weren't anything worth seeing. You typically don't get any deeper than ESPN2 for sports unless it has changed.

206 Liberal Suicide Alert

My neighborhood (which is 99% liberal/leftist) has an online "discussion forum" where neighbors can post notices and exchange info. usually it's "My cat ran away - -anyone seen it?" or "Schwinn 10-speed for sale," and stuff like that. But every now and then there are serious discussions -- especially when someone comes on to announce that they were the victim of a crime in the neighborhood. Which is exactly what happened yesterday.

A neighbor came on the bard and said that the night before she heard a suspicious sound in front of her house and then her motion-detector lights came on, she looked out the window and saw a man in her driveway trying to break into her house. She woke up her husband who yelled out the window that he was gonna call 911 if he didn't leave immediately, and then a second man also became visible -- he had been in the garage trying to steal stuff -- and both men ran away. So, the woman warned -- be on the lookout for burglars!

First neighbor replied: Well, DID you call the cops? Answer: No, because they ran away.

Second neighbor replied: Well, if you didn't call the cops, can we at least have a description of the perps so we can know who to look out for?

It was at this point all hell broke loose: Everyone erupted in outrage at the second questioner!

Why are you asking that? Are you a racist? Are you TRYING to promote racism? Racial profiling is evil!

Second questioner: Wait wait wait, I didn't say anything about race, I just wanted a description!

Everyone: Well, wouldn't the description have as its primary attribute the suspects' RACE? What you're really asking to know is if the perps were black are not, isn't it? You're just seeking to promote stereotypes! We don't want your kind around here!!11!!!1!!

---------------

Distance matters, but also so do obstructions and topography. Also, some of your local stations may not be transmitting at maximum power.

For example - most of the broadcast towers are about 40 miles away from me as the crow flies. But because of hills and topography, I'm not getting line-of-sight signal. I thought I over-bought with a 65-mile antenna, but it's still not perfect. It's inside the attic, and I may try moving it out to the top of the chimney.

Most channels are good most of the time.
One channel broadcasts at half the power of the others, and we've all but given up on ever receiving it.
All channels get sketchy during the evening hours during the summer. Not sure if it's due to extra RF noise during sunset hours or from extra pollution during the evening rush hour or what, but from 5-6pm the signal worsens.

I guess what I'm trying to say is - embrace the fact that you're going to have some research and experimentation on your hands. I enjoy it. Mrs. Reason, not so much.

When I "cut the cord" I tried out all of the "Big 3"
- Sling
- DirecTV NOW
- Playstation Vue

In my opinion, DTV Now is the best overall experience. There are some downsides (there always will be, everything is a compromise) but I will hand it to them in a couple of areas:
- Price-competitive
- Roku, Android and Web apps are very good
- The closest to the "real TV" experience
- Generally performs well (not stuck in degraded picture or buffer-pause hell)
- They improve the app routinely, and Roku automatically updates. Every now and then (about once a quarter), I open the app and it is a better overall experience than it was the day before.
- Has finally gotten online DVR capability, but it was a bit late to that party it is also a bit immature.

The user experience is fantastic on DTV Now, the apps are good, and AT&T seems to be standing behind the platform. It went from "okay" to "great" over the past six months.

One word of warning, since you mention that use Roku (I do, too): Get a Roku Premier or Ultra for DTV Now. The Express works okay but the user experience is *much* better on more powerful hardware. I suspect the "streaming stick" is fine but I have no direct experience with it. The old-gen Roku TVs (non-4k TVs with built-in Roku) are not up to the task for the newest-gen DTV Now.

zombie, sounds like NextDoor. We've had stuff like that come up, too.
Usually people are okay about it, but this one time a woman posted
something about a shady character and said he was Hispanic. "How do you
know? Are you just assuming? Blah blah blah" you get the picture.



Finally the original lady got back on and said yes, I'm sure he's
Hispanic because I AM ALSO HISPANIC and I recognized that he is Hispanic
JUST LIKE I AM.

248 241 Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of shushing, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of shusher, or of the shushee; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble to shush, and to petition the government for a redress of shushances.

Amended in 2021 with supermajorities of Democrats in Congress:

The press is now the Fourth Branch of government, as long as the Democratic Party approves of each individual member. The press will have the authority to pass laws by fiat that no other branch of Congress can challenge.

It depends on your region, alas. If most of your towers are in one place, you won't need to once you get aimed properly in the first place. If you have clusters of towers, you may need to. They have motorized antennae for this. In general, it also depends on what you want. Most of the mainline channels (the typical alphabet soup) are in one geographical areas, and the former UHF channels will be in another when you have this setup in your area.

Reason is spot-on. antennaweb.org is great, and I used it to maximum effect along with my handy compass.

When I "cut the cord" I tried out all of the "Big 3"
- Sling
- DirecTV NOW
- Playstation Vue

In my opinion, DTV Now is the best overall experience. There are some downsides (there always will be, everything is a compromise) but I will hand it to them in a couple of areas:
- Price-competitive
- Roku, Android and Web apps are very good
- The closest to the "real TV" experience
- Generally performs well (not stuck in degraded picture or buffer-pause hell)
- They improve the app routinely, and Roku automatically updates. Every now and then (about once a quarter), I open the app and it is a better overall experience than it was the day before.
- Has finally gotten online DVR capability, but it was a bit late to that party it is also a bit immature.

The user experience is fantastic on DTV Now, the apps are good, and AT&T seems to be standing behind the platform. It went from "okay" to "great" over the past six months.

One word of warning, since you mention that use Roku (I do, too): Get a Roku Premier or Ultra for DTV Now. The Express works okay but the user experience is *much* better on more powerful hardware. I suspect the "streaming stick" is fine but I have no direct experience with it. The old-gen Roku TVs (non-4k TVs with built-in Roku) are not up to the task for the newest-gen DTV Now.

a) I'm assuming NextDoor. It's awesome. People forget so quickly that they aren't anonymous on there, and true colors shine through in the most hilarious of ways. And sad.

I've watched this happen in my neighborhood on NextDoor, as well. I figure most of our area is conservative, but we've had transplants from liberal areas over the last 10 years since Texas has been one of the few consistently growing economies.

There was a thread about a proposed low-income tax-subsidized apartment complex trying to go into the town. Most people were against it, but the few that were for it for some reason went BONKERS about how disappointed they were to live among such bigots and racists and elitist middle-class fops...

On the occasional burglar / peddler / prowler conversation, there have been some challenges when race of the person was raised - "are you sure or are you assuming? We don't have pictures, so how do we know?"

I crack open a beer, read, and laugh.

Harpies thought he should have swerved to avoid, never mind that it is a school area w. kids every where.

Unfortunately, I took a half hour out of my life to read through the nutters twitter feed leading up to this. This guy was a killing spree waiting to happen. He probably wanted to shoot up the court where he lost the case. Or shoot the girl he stalked. But I'm guessing he knew the newspaper offices would be an easier target. Really, he's a psycho.

338 298 What got me kicked out of NextDoor was disagreeing w. some harpies who wanted to tar and feather a driver who hit a dog that got out of its owner's home. Owner had left the side gate open accidentally and the little dog darted out into the road. Poor driver was at speed limit and could not stop. Harpies thought he should have swerved to avoid, never mind that it is a school area w. kids every where. I said he did the right thing and placed a greater value on the kids safety and the dog's owner had some responsibility in the sad affair. They went ballistic on me and kicked me out.

============

Silent movies that relied on dialogue tried to fit a square peg in a round hole.

The best did everything they could to tell stories visually.

The Passion of Joan of Arc is probably the best silent movie ever, and one of the most common complaints about it is that it uses any intertitles at all. They're unnecessary to follow the story.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison at July 02, 2018 03:27 PM (X+Lmq)

345 Roku is a device not a service. Sling and DTV Now are services that run on devices - like your phone, computer, tablet, Smart TV, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, or Roku.

First, eff the Smart TVs. They work pretty well for Netflix, generally, at first. And then the firmware gets old and its a 3 year old TV and we don't really support it anymore so eh.

Direct TV Now is probably the best service in terms of offerings to price right now. However, the latest software release makes our Roku and Apple TV have the sadz. Except my last year Premier Roku - that one keeps up still. Processors matter. The little stick ones will have issues regardless. So kind of resign yourself to buying a new device every 1.5-2 years.

Sling is better at "on demand"

362 NextDoor was flawed in the concept.

Should never have been a neighborhood bulletinboard.

It should have a been a visual icon board on which you can put icons to denote events or notices without commentary

EG: Lost Dog - find the icon in a search bar, type in the time frame, and place the icon over the general area. Neighbor finds the dog, hits the Lost Dog icon and puts in a meeting time and a location, like on a corner. No comments necessary.

Prowler - find icon in search bar, type in the time frame, click the option that the prowler was reported to police. Police can then respond with official report under the original icon. Again no commentary except for official police response.

Free junk / garage sale - time and date only no comments.

Most of the usefullness of such a site could have been done without inviting commentary or unneeded opinions.

364 One other thing to say about NextDoor - Mrs. Reason is one of the "leads" in our area, and she's an Honorary Horde Moron.

Maybe not an AtC Class Moron, but maybe more of a Fenlon Class.

The rest of the leads in our area are total control-freak wierdoes, as you would expect. Some are socialists transplants, one is a power-hungry witch that keeps running for mayor and never gets in thankfully...

Mrs. Reason drives the other wierdo leads INSANE because she usually won't vote to block or ban or remove comments, and will even go in and reinstate stuff when she's overruled.

It's a truly weird system of authority as a whole with the program. But the other leads are stuck with her, and she refuses to let them wield arbitrary authoritarian power over the fiefs of our small town. It's a beautiful thing.

369 If I'm understanding the story correctly:
* Trump makes a comment in a private conversation that the press will try to pin the Annapolis atrocity on him.
* Comment is leaked to press.

* Press splashes leaked comment across the front page.
* Press accuses Trump, on basis of a comment made in a private conversation, of making atrocity "about him".
* Meanwhile press does in fact try to pin the Annapolis atrocity on Trump, fulfilling his prediction.
So Trump, in a private conversation, made a prediction that proved to be correct; and the media is attacking him for it. Excuse me if I'm am somewhat less than outraged.
