Pundits Appraise the Trump Sideshow

Normal people’s response to Trump’s joint address was disgust and horror. Pundits however, couldn’t stop raving about it. They were immediately mocked, but their jobs are never in jeopardy and they’ll still get paid handsomely to spew bad takes.

Featured here in order are: Van Jones, Katy Tur, Philip Rucker, Benny “Wikipedia Plagiarist” Johnson, and Chris “The Fix” Cillizza. If you don’t know who they are, you have a much healthier media diet than me.

Unless you’re trapped in a hotel with no channels, there’s no reason to watch or read these morons’ opinions. Actual reporting, and maybe some supplemental analysis here and there is all you need to be an informed citizen.

Except for editorial cartoons. Keep reading those.

Peter Thiel’s Million-Dollar Legal Maneuvers

Million-Dollar Legal ManeuversBillionaire Paypal founder Peter Thiel has thin skin, so it makes sense that he’s also a Trump delegate. Unable to sue Gawker for outing him, Thiel used his fortune to anonymously fund other suits against the tabloid. A lot of “serious” journalists shrugged since they think Gawker got what they deserved, but there’s nothing stopping him or other rich people from doing the same to more reputable publications.

Please don’t show him this cartoon; I can’t afford to make him angry.
