It occurs to me that I stopped writing about Tucson, so Tucson started writing about itself all over you guys.  Containment has been breached.  You have no chance to survive.  Make your time.

CNN is reporting that US intelligence officials believe North Korea is preparing a ballistic missile test for the first days or weeks of a Trump administration.

I remember this shit from last time round. Hey kids you are now living in the shadow of the bomb, just like us baby boomers did when we were young. Isn't it fun when stuff recycles like this?


eta: CNN? The false news channel? Hmmmm

If the answer is Donald J Trump then it must have been a fucking stupid question.

Well lets be fair here, they're acting as stenographers for the intelligence services in this case.

That said, some specialist scholars on North Korea and the South Korean intelligence services have been saying the same thing for a couple of weeks now, that Pyongyang is gearing up for another display of military and engineering ineptitude prowess.

I watched the whole thing.  Including Trump signing 12 pieces of legislation he hasn't read, with Paul Ryan standing next to him grinning like something out of the deep sea.

It was all sort of like having an angry and bored carnival barker announce the final solution.

At least some folks got free pens out of it.

Jesus, that press conference with Sean Spicer stammering about inauguration turnout and the lying media lying about it.

I keep thinking "the media has to grow a spine and start fucking them back", but then I remember who owns the media.

Yeah. The whole point of the Fourth Estate being the pillar of democracy is that it has to be, yanno, Free. When it starts to become the mouthpiece of a couple of fascist billionaires all bets are off.

Yeah, that's a huge part of the problem. There are good reasons why people don't trust the media, so instead they've just started believing any stream of noise that fits their preferred worldview. Actual journalism has been more or less replaced by facebook memes.

Interesting observation but not a well formed point and it is certainly one that needs addressing atm. My 2 penceworth - The media can only ever be as good as the quality of its reading public. And if that sounds elitist well sue me. What it looks like to me (and is implied in your post) is that people are so thin skinned that they can't accept any "truth" that doesn't fit their pre-conceptions. As a result they are searching through any dustbin or dark alley for the right flavour of truth, one that smells right to them.

Oh and just an FYI. Stuff from the NYTimes is behind a paywall so a brief highlight or two would be handy, if possible.

Thanks. I didn't bother clicking the NYT link 'cos I've already had my 6 free articles for this month. I hadn't bothered to watch the Spicerclasm but wow just Wow. Where did they drag that guy up from? Mind you if someone gave me a script full of lies and BS and pushed me out in front of the Washington media I think I might babble and stumble over my words a bit too.
I hope this isn't paywalled but this is a Guardian take on it. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jan/22/sean-spicer-inauguration-groucho-marxist-asking-us-not-believe-our-own-eyes

Spicer is also getting trolled to all shit on Twitter.  Calling him this generation's Baghdad Bob was one of the kinda comments I saw.
