Media focuses on ‘moronic’ news after scoop on supposed Tillerson resignation falls apart

Media focuses on ‘moronic’ news after scoop on supposed Tillerson resignation falls apart

Can’t stop, won’t stop!

NBC News thought it had a big scoop when it reported that Vice President Mike Pence had to step in and convince Secretary of State Rex Tillerson not to resign in July after he allegedly called President Donald Trump a ‘moron’.

Tillerson held a press conference this morning to counter these reports and assure everyone that he has never considered leaving his post. The State Department has denied that Tillerson called Trump a moron.

Despite this, the media remains focused on the ‘moron’ comment, which has now evolved from moron to f*cking moron.

Tillerson didn’t deny he made the comment about Trump, but said he won’t get involved in this petty behavior:

Even Pence confirmed that he never had to convince Tillerson to stay on the job:

Media Holding On

So it did not shock me when I saw this email from CNN:

ESCALATE?! Tillerson just held a press conference to refute the NBC report. The media, which is supposed to stick to facts, thinks Tillerson’s refusal to explicitly deny the ‘moron’ comment must mean something more even though he called it ‘petty’.

With their original scoop in shambles the reporter from NBC News is saying that her “source” says Tillerson called Trump a ‘f*cking moron’, not just a ‘moron’.

I listened to Tillerson’s remarks and found them refreshing.

And my experience with other people – including myself – is that I might well call someone a moron from a momentary slip of his, believing full well the person isn’t a moron in full.

These media types are constantly saying absurd moronic things, yet their employers keep them. People in glass houses shouldn’t throw rocks!

Speaking of moronic, CBS has just discovered “automatic rounds” were used in the Las Vegas shooting.

It’s a slow news day, especially when you embargo Project Veritas’s excellent undercover sting of antics.

Nothing to see here move along. We now return you to the football player lecturing you on social issues. You know, that guy who copied your geology paper in high school and got his name wrong.

Antifa, not antics. Moronic phone.

Pathetic. That is the only word I can think of to describe these petulant, professional liars properly.

Tillerson said what an intelligent leader would say when he said he wouldn’t engage in this “Petty” kind of thing. He said he wasn’t from DC and that where he was from people moved on from things like this and got to work. This is a statement that the msms will not understand. They LIVE for tidbits of insults or name calling to get their little bylines in the public. I do not know where they will be post-Trump. They have fouled their profession so badly that I simply do not believe anything they put out without further checking from more trusted sources.

A great deal of hot air expended at the MSM for no effect, other than to make them all look stupid. Stupider. Whatever.

I generally view the difference between fools, idiots and morons as follows:
– All men are fools.

– Anybody who calls me at work thirty seconds before quitting time with a four-hour problem is an idiot.

– Anybody else driving a car (ahead or tailgating me) is a moron.

The slow-witted ‘pubs never fight back against the media. They can do it without getting in a pissing match. Tillerson provided a breath of fresh air by doing this with class and dignity.

Don’t overlook the pre-press conference speculation that they Press Conference had been called so Tillerson could announce his resignation….. that was hillarious.

Tillerson also never denied that he called Trump a Big Doodyhead. That MUST mean it’s true.

“Reporters are 27 year olds who literally know nothing.” — Ben Rhodes

Press conferences customarily follow a rigid format. One person tosses a bit of chopped fish, and the other person goes through contortions to catch it; all on cue. If the show makes for good circus, more bits of the same fish follow, and the contortions continue until the audience gets bored.

This works both ways; either the Press or its would-be victims can toss the fish, though pre-Trump it was the Press which did most of the tossing. Now it does more than its share of the contorting, and it doesn’t much like it, but it does it anyway.

Tillerson seems to be saying that he’s not going to dance no matter how much fish they toss him. Some of the audience will be disappointed, but some will applaud even more than usual.

I see no downside to this.

Morons accusing non-morons of calling non-morons ‘morons.’
We should thank the democrat media for being so nakedly corrupt -just makes it easier to put them in their place.

This is a favorite tactic of the media; make something up based on “anonymous” sources and ask the target to confirm or deny it. I only wish Rex had used the phrase “Fake News” in his denial. People who watch the MSM are supporting propaganda. Anonymous sourced news should not be reported.

I can’t say that I’m all that enamored of articles presented by a lengthy tweet-series. I see that more and more around the inter-tubes, and it is as annoying as used car ads.
