Branco Cartoon – Friends With Benefits

Comments

The media hasn’t had this big a foreign friend since the USSR died.

    I can’t imagine the media really wants to resume boot-licking a Dem president and writing puff pieces about “The One”. Without Trump they’d be bored out of their gourds. If they’d take :30 to think about it, Trump is the media’s friend, too.

    Or did you mean “fiend” instead of “friend”?

Partisan DNC Attack Media Continues Shrieking That One Must Not Call a Chinese Flu a Chinese Flu; Twitter Censors Words “Chinese” and “Wuhan”

The newest Media Moral Panic which erupted on Twitter yesterday now infects another press conference…

Meanwhile, Twitter ….. is busily censoring user posts to appease their Chinese friends and investors.

Why call it the Chinese flu? Gee, I don’t know, maybe because China covered up the existence of the virus for critical weeks — critical weeks in which infected Chinese nationals or travelers to China went all over the world like Johnny Appleseeds of the the plague.

A Wuhan lab that identified COVID-19 as a highly contagious pathogen in late December was ordered by local officials to stop tests and destroy samples. Beijing is now scrambling to censor the story.

    Ibib.

    And the alleged “American” media are eagerly helping them suppress this news.

    Why?

    Who’s paying them?

    I’m not kidding: There will be hearings about foreign collusion, and specific reporters taking money for planted stories.

With the media having been so pro-Trump up until now, this really comes as quite a shock. Who could have ever seen this one coming?!?
(sarcasm off)

For sure, Branco — today’s majority-“journo” calling card, perfectly cartooned. My complementary thought on the matter follows.

I loved OANN reporter Chanel Rion’s live and direct question to President Trump yesterday, that (paraphrasing now) if you, Mr President, and probably Americans generally, are okay with the term “Chinese food (and why not? for goodness’ sake),” aren’t you amazed, then, at how so many in the MSM take offense at and find troubling issue with the parallel, similar construction of the term “Chinese coronavirus”.

(I think, it might be better, first, too-playful ones in the media, to know whether any non-ChiComms, say in the PRoC, including Hong Kong, the RoC, or anywhere else in the Chinese global diaspora — say, especially, Chinese-Americans — feel, it’s a “racist” slur, no?)

“Chinese coronavirus[-2]” is merely a geography-based, innocuous if accurate shorthand for the more marbles-in-the-mouth-sounding — the epidemiologically correct and historically consistent description of the WHO-named second-issue, sometimes-SARS-producing (beta)coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, or more commonly called Chinese coronavirus-2.

I’m meaning, therefore: Better that heads-in-the-clouds, hidden neo-Marxist-agenda-driven “journalists” get with the REAL issue at hand for their information-needing customers, the US media market’s consumers, and not the touchy-feely, imaginary one they apparently can’t or refuse to try to detach from if all Americans aim and want to get past this living nightmare.

Help us, then so-far so-called journalists; don’t impede or, worse, aim to hurt us.

I further believe that until we hear and reliably know that a significant number of such Chinese people as mentioned above firmly feel that the US president is more interested in slandering their ethnic identity than he is at doing his Constitutional duty to protect those within his jurisdiction and under his charge, just mind your own damn business! Do you jobs right: Quit concluding in your historically unprofessional (read it: nefarious) manner of accusing others without evidentiary — named testimonial or documentary — support.

Put simply, MSM, act responsibly, and professionally. It might serve to edify your aims and efforts — and help Americans and human beings worldwide out of this public health menace, hopefully sooner and better, rather than later and much worse.

Finally, if we fail miserably at this, then, barring amazing luck or a miracle, probably so goes the world. Remember, if you can or care to, those who put their lives on the line, and lost them, in WWs I & II in order to preserve and protect your Constitutional right to write and broadcast your responsible beliefs freely. But, as with any actor in a free society, for anyone to avoid the pitfalls, ignominy, and justified accusation of acting licentiously, such a protected right must be attended by active responsibility. You see, a left-agenda-driven basis to weaken the news’ integrity — ie, to attempt to fake the news you concoct and don’t find/judge sensibly and responsibly/report as a vital product we need to consume (in order

” . . .to insure domestic [t]ranquility,
provide for the common defen[s]e, promote
the general [w]elfare, and [keep] secure[d]
the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and
our Posterity . . . “)

such agenda-driven bullsh**t just doesn’t work. We know better, and so should you.

Nuf sed.

PS: For a detailed, trim, practically complete catalog of past epidemics or pandemics, see at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_epidemics.

Note therein the columns titled ” . . . Location, Event, Disease,” among other headings. This charts a sensible way of listing the relevant and historical, infectious entities under discussion.

It’s quickly apparent that the identified cause — be it a microbial pathogen, such as a bacterium or a virus — of both the event and its understood disease are listed together in the table.
We can perhaps let this manner of classification guide us, out of our current accountability-needing, proper-disease-naming, focus-distracting morass.

For the sake of, among other things, Peace on Earth, let’s call the current pathogen — the virus originating in Wuhan, PRoC, and whether it causes SARS or not in a serologically positive individual, as follows: Coronavirus-2; and let’s keep calling the disease or syndrome associated with its infection, if it even develops and persists and whatever the final clinical outcome for the individuals affected, COVID-19.

So nice and neat; so clear enough and facially inoffensive — no? Maybe our president would care to try it, and see how he feels in using it to discuss his optimistic, forward-looking, kick-ass plan to keep America and its economy in the best position possible to recover their future. At the same time, he might choose to “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, . . . ” for they are, collectively, the fake news press, and perhaps, then, yesterday’s Wizard of Oz.

Proper accountability for any claimed, proved and certified state misconduct can wait for another day. Let’s first live and strive in a WW-II-like, international alliance achieving victory; any tribunal-like or other inquiring/accusing/penalty-seeking event must come last, if at all.

Life itself is prior to responsibility-promoting liberty, and even justice, as the pursuit of a rational, national happiness.

We gotta stay alive, and we can do this!
