Animal’s Daily Legacy Media News

Before we get into it, check out the final chapter of License to Kill over at Glibertarians!

Now then; as if most of us didn’t already know that our legacy media was effectively a leftist fifth column, the last few days would have proved it.

When you listen to the Ivy League-educated, woke-as-an-Apple Watch, wine-and-slippers crowd on the Sunday morning news circuit, you have to come to one of two conclusions:

Either they are malignant manipulators who willingly lie about their political enemies (known politely as conservatives, and to Joe Biden as “MAGA Republican extremists”), or they are just plain stupid.

OK, maybe not stupid, but incapable of discernment – unable to understand subtlety or recognize sarcasm, for instance. Certainly unable to credit their opponents with the ability to think artfully, and therefore taking everything at face value when there might actually be levels of sophistication hidden in plain sight.

In the case of their endless savaging of Donald Trump, you have to say that after eight years of evidence to the contrary, the mainstream media is completely unable to recognize that Trump has an unparalleled ability to frame an argument to make his opponents look foolish, weak, or unpatriotic. Of course, since his opponents include the mainstream media itself, it’s no surprise that they prefer to call him names rather than to honestly evaluate his criticism.

No matter what you think of Donald Trump – and my feelings on him are distinctly mixed – you’d have to be as brain-damaged as, oh, Joe Biden to fail to see how horribly the media has treated him.  And it’s not just Donald Trump, but pretty much any public figure to the right of Leon Trotsky.

But when it comes to solutions, well, there’s just one thing to consider.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The First Amendment applies to the legacy media, like anyone else. But  you don’t fight bad information by clamping down on speech; you fight bad information with good information, and that’s largely what has been driving the rise of the alternative media; like my and my RedState colleagues’ work, and like these virtual pages I’ve been producing through the various iterations of Animal Magnetism for over twenty years now.

We’ll keep cranking.  You keep reading!
