Mollie Hemingway, en Fuego


In the Propaganda Media's War on Truth, nobody has been more on-point and incisive than the Federalist's Mollie Hemingway.

"2.) Washington Post Mocking A Nominee For Praying

The Washington Post had a heck of a night Wednesday night, mostly in the headline and social media departments.
This is how the folks at the Washington Post chose to frame the news that Donald Trump had nominated Gov. Sonny Perdue to be Secretary of Agriculture. In so doing, they lost any claim to be able to objectively cover the man.".......

I wonder what the Post would make of FDR's D-Day Prayer:

"Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts. Give us strength, too -- strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces."

I'm sure the Washington Post of 1944 appreciated it. The Washington Post of 2017 seems to regard it as a superstitious and suspicious practice by an insular cult.

Funny; that's exactly what I think of the way they "report" the "news".

HEH-UPDATE: “Most public men strive to please an audience. It has been Obama’s good fortune to surround himself with an audience that wants to please him.”

More: Hemingway Tolls the Bell: “The media are years into a war with Donald Trump — they’re not even hiding it — and the administration is letting them know they’re not just going to take it like Republicans normally do. The media took it lying down for eight years when the press secretary of other people in the Obama administration explicitly said false things about Benghazi, lied about the extent of the IRS targeting of conservatives, lied about cash transfers to Iran, bragged about making an echo chamber to pass the Iran deal, and had a president himself saying repeatedly ‘If you like your healthcare plan you can keep it’ a gazillion times while millions of people lost their healthcare plans,” she said. “A media that doesn’t push back against that type of falsehood for eight years and then gets all upset at Sean Spicer talking about numbers is not going to be taken seriously at all.”.......
