The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi Shows
Why ‘Professional’ Journalism Can’t
Be Salvaged

Corporate media have gotten every single major story of the last decade wrong, in big and little ways. Whether it’s the 2016 election, the Russia-collusion scam, the threats posed by Covid and response to the same, the effort to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s life and family, accurate discussion of the Biden family business, immigration, abortion, crime, racism, guns, hate crime hoaxes, the economy, inflation, education, the relationship between the sexes, the radical trans agenda, or a thousand other stories, the media haven’t just been bad. They have been absolutely irredeemably awful.


And yet, day after day the Washington Post and its ilk are held up as stellar examples, pillars of professional journalism. BS. They should be found only in trash heaps or the bottoms of bird cages.

My local paper, the Manchester (NH) Union Leader was conservative for many years. Over the last few years they only republish stories from the Washington Post, the LA Times, NY Times and other liberal outlets. Nothing from the Washington Times or other conservative outlets. I cancelled my subscription and told them why, even writing to the publisher Bernie McQuaid. I still received many requests to resubscribe and/or explain why I had canceled my subscription. Each time I told them why, and that they were dying because of their liberal turn.

How many articles do you read that don't answer the number 1 rule of journalism: who, what, where, when? I often read articles with these question left unanswered. Then stories are not covered today. They merely write their opinion of tv news, or distribute narratives for the government or others, in return for pay.

Our Lucianne helped "out" womanizer Bill Clinton and get the truth out of Monica Lewinsky. Citizen journalists helped to uncover Dan Rather's sleight of hand, otherwise he'd still have the "courage" to lie to us at CBS. To the networks, WaPo, NYTimes and AP: We're not taking your truth anymore. We can't trust you at all, including when your use the words "the", "of" and "and". Your reporters are mere scriveners for leftist talking points, mostly from Dems. We the people have seen the light. Let me translate the writing on the wall for you "news" outlets: "You have been weighed on the scales and been found wanting."

I recently wrote a column about why I believed Trump should not run in 2024. I was wrong. I allowed my distaste for Trump’s personality to override his virtues, which are considerable. Some people want Trump without his vices. I was among them -- until yesterday, when I watched and listened to Tom Klingenstein’s speech titled “Trump’s virtues.” It was masterful and shamed me that I did not make the distinction between Trump's character and his virtues, the former being deeply flawed, the latter being almost perfect. I need to man up in my defense of the former President's virtues.

Australian tabloids are reporting that Caitlyn Jenner, who is running to replace California Gov. Gavin Newsom in a recall election that's just two months away, has absconded from the Golden State in order to film "Celebrity Big Brother" in Australia. Jenner landed in Sydney earlier this week and will have to enter a mandatory two-week quarantine before being able to film. It is unclear how long filming will last, but with eight weeks to go until the recall election, missing even two weeks would normally seem like lost time.

Pravda Press – The difference between a New York Times reader and a Russian reading Pravda is that the Russian knows he is being lied to. Softball questions from the compliant media allowed Biden to read, without looking up, from pre-printed note cards. He chose reliable, liberal reporters (partisan activists) from a pre-selected list.     The worst question came from NPR’s pandering Yamiche Alcindor who attempted to explain away what is tracking to be the worst southern border migrant surge in 20 years because Biden is a moral and decent man.  Proving once again that the mainstream media is the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party.   CORRECTION*

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.   While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son.

Arguably the biggest sensation to come out of the debacle of a town hall NBC had with President Trump was the so-called “nodding lady.” Positioned directly behind the President’s left shoulder for one of the most widely used camera angles, she was applauded by some and attacked by others for nodding her head and displaying thumbs up in agreement when the President answered many of the attack questions posed to him by Savannah Guthrie. But she wasn’t originally positioned there. Before the town hall began, a Caucasian lady was originally positioned there.

Top officials with the Hillary Clinton campaign re-engaged with the opposition researchers behind the Steele dossier just three weeks after Donald Trump’s inauguration, newly declassified congressional witness transcripts reveal, indicating her campaign’s participation in an ongoing and well-funded effort to undermine the president by casting him as a tool of the Kremlin. Clinton's campaign chair John Podesta testified that he met on Feb. 10, 2017, with Daniel Jones, a former aide to California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, and Glenn Simpson and his partner Peter Fritsch of Fusion GPS. In separate testimony, Clinton’s senior foreign policy adviser Jake Sullivan revealed he also participated in the meeting.

Joe Biden, in his ineffable fashion, managed to mess up the turkey-pardoning ceremony yesterday, confusing Taylor Swift with Britney Spears. But to listen to Joe Scarborough today, you can imagine the Morning Joe host fretting that if Donald Trump were re-elected, he would replace turkey pardoning with an Execution o' the Week ceremony! We've oft documented, as here, poor Scarborough's fascism fetish when it comes to describing Trump.

The relationship between the POTUS and the VPOTUS can be a fickle thing. Sometimes things start out well enough but end badly, as they did with former President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence. Other times, things sputter and struggle to even start out well, as with President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. And then there’s whatever is going on between former President Barack Obama and Biden, who served as the former’s VP in both presidential terms.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul is beefing up security in the Big Apple following an intelligence report indicating that there is an increased chance of a terrorist attack in the wake of Hamas' brutal assault on Israel on October 7. The assessment, which was written by the New York State Intelligence Center, was first reported by CBS News. The report found that due to the increased violence in Israel with the bombardment of Gaza, there has been a rise in 'chatter' about possible terrorism targets in the Big Apple.

Illegal alien criminals, child traffickers, and potential terrorists violating our laws to cross the southern U.S. border get all kinds of moolah and freebies. But if you’re an American soldier who put everything on the line to defend your country, Uncle Sam would apparently like a thousand bucks for that gear you were told you COULDN’T bring out of Afghanistan. It has seemed fairly obvious, especially since the disastrous withdrawal that left thousands of Americans and allies stranded in the hellhole of Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, that the Biden administration hates our military.

A museum is to relabel its display about a Roman emperor after concluding that he was in fact a trans woman. North Hertfordshire Museum will now refer to emperor Elagabalus with the female pronouns of she and her. It comes after classical texts claim the emperor once said "call me not Lord, for I am a Lady". A museum spokesperson said it was "only polite and respectful to be sensitive to identifying pronouns for people in the past". The museum has one coin of Elagabalus, which is often displayed amongst other LGBTQ+items in its collection. It said it consulted LGBTQ+

Hamas negotiators are in the final stages of striking a deal that would include the release of at least 50 hostages in exchange for a pause in fighting, the chief of the terrorist group said on Tuesday. Hamas leaders are “close to reaching a truce agreement” with Israel, Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh said in a statement provided to Reuters. The agreement is in its “final stages” and a deal is “closer than it has ever been,” a source familiar with the negotiations told the wire service.

Hamas used Gaza City’s Shifa hospital as a base of terror operations. That’s the obvious conclusion following Sunday’s discovery of a large terror tunnel under the hospital along with videos of Hamas bringing Israeli hostages inside. Now comes an important question for Congress: Which US-funded international organizations knew the truth about Shifa and helped Hamas conceal its war crimes? The Israel Defense Forces this weekend discovered a tunnel beneath Shifa hospital that extends 10 meters down and 55 meters across — leading to what might be a booby-trapped door. Special units that specialize in handling explosives have been summoned to break through to the next section.
