Our Exclusive Breaking Story Wasn’t

NBC News reported with great fanfare their exclusive story that Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen was wiretapped by the feds. As it turns out, he wasn’t. But that didn’t lead them to walk back all their breathless analysis.

  1. «Where does that petard fit when you are hoisted on it?» Up your arse, my dear «Wizard», as you would surely know where your IQ not equal to the median you’ve claimed for persons in your esteemed country who score less that 100 on the test…. 😉

    • Froggy, froggy, hop froggy, hop
      Henri, I’m glad to see people like you can and will discuss their fetishes in public. Why hide and be reviled.
      Whatever you and the petard get up to just remember that EMT’s have heard the “I fell on it and it went up my butt” with everything from Eggplants to light bulbs.
      Safe sex is healthy sex little froggy.

      • «I’m glad to see people like you can and will discuss their fetishes in public.» I note that your self-knowledge is on a par, my dear «Wizard», with your understanding of a Gaussian distribution. But what can one expect of someone with an IQ of 50 ?… 😉

  2. c’mon Ted – why don’t you just come out of the closet and endorse Trump already?

    Hey, didja see where Consigliori Cohen got a half-million dollars from Dastardly Russians right before the election? Or that the same shill company that paid off Stormy Daniels laundered millions of rubles?

    As always, the *only* POSSIBLE explanation is that Cohen is very sad Hillary lost.

  3. “Friday was one of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time. The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, and countless pundits, commentators, and operatives joining the party throughout the day. By the end of the day, it was clear that several of the nation’s largest and most influential news outlets had spread an explosive but completely false news story to millions of people, while refusing to provide any explanation of how it happened.”

    • I don’y care if fake news is revealed as fake news by the Man in the Moon.

      Who would you privilege to speak of observations of the apparent, and who would you prohibit? And why should I care who you think should be so privileged?

        Someone has said that it requires less mental effort to condemn than to think. The widespread mental indolence, so prevalent in society, proves this to be only too true. Rather than to go to the bottom of any given idea, to examine into it’s origing and meaning, most people will either condem it alltogether, or rely on some superficial or perjudicial definition of non-essentials

        STRUCTURE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN CONTENT IN THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION. It is the same as saying “the medium is the message.”

        All this was inspired by the principle—which is quite true within itself—that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

        As soon as you’re born they make you feel small
        By giving you no time instead of it all
        Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
        A working class hero is something to be
        A working class hero is something to be

        They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
        They hate you if you’re clever and they despise a fool
        Till you’re so fucking crazy you can’t follow their rules
        A working class hero is something to be
        A working class hero is something to be

        When they’ve tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
        Then they expect you to pick a career
        When you can’t really function you’re so full of fear
        A working class hero is something to be
        A working class hero is something to be

        Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
        And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
        But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see
        A working class hero is something to be
        A working class hero is something to be

        There’s room at the top they’re telling you still
        But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
        If you want to be like the folks on the hill

        A working class hero is something to be
        A working class hero is something to be
        If you want to be a hero well just follow me
        If you want to be a hero well just follow me

    • But my dear Wizard, even a person with an IQ of 50 like yourself should be able to understand that he or she is not compelled to view cartoons he or she does not wish to see. Or is someone holding a firearm to your unlovely head ?… 😉

      • Henri, henri, henri,
        My little froggy. I’m surprised you didn’t fawn and grovel like your family did in WW2.
        I was watching Marseilles, and it was pointed out that in most French cities the slums were on the outskirts but Marseilles they were inside and a major part of.
        Where do you live Henri, with the Fellaheen, or the faux intellectuals slobbering over Macron and jerking off to his grandmotherly wife?
        I bet you are considered Sous-Merde within your ever diminishing circle.

      • «My little froggy. I’m surprised you didn’t fawn and grovel like your family did in WW2.» My dear Wizard, an IQ of 50 is not absolute prerequisite for making bold assertions regarding others and their families, about which one knows less than nothing, but in your particular case, it certainly does seem to help…. 😉

        Henri

      • Little froggy
        “prerequisite for making bold assertions regarding others”

        Hypocrite much?
        Where does that petard fit when you are hoisted on it?
