What Went Wrong?


Jann on the cross

About that fake gang rape story that roiled the town of Charlottesvile, VA (and the nation) last November, well, Rolling Stone wants to get to the bottom of it.
As we asked ourselves how we could have gotten the story wrong, we decided the only responsible and credible thing to do was to ask someone from outside the magazine to investigate any lapses in reporting, editing and fact-checking behind the story. We reached out to Steve Coll, dean of the Columbia School of Journalism, and a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter himself, who accepted our offer.
Steve Coll - Beltway baby, Occidental, WaPo, New Yorker, New America Foundation and  now, CSJ dean. How's that for an "outsider" and I wonder what he'll find?

I think he'll find the New America Foundation's hymen "American Oxycodone" crooned by the internationally acclaimed pop star Rihanna at Saturday's Final 4 halftime gala in Indiana holds a clue (or two).
I say, you see, this is the American Dream
Young girl, hustlin'
On the other side of the ocean
She can be anything at all
America, America
I should, come see
Just close your eyes and breathe

This is the new America
We are the new America
This is the new America
We are the new America
This is the new America
We are the new America
Yes, the "New America" is down for the struggle - even though it's a lie.

Perhaps Jann should have looked to Rolling Stone's readership for the answer but they're probably too busy watching hoops.


Or maybe Jann should have gone WAY OUTSIDE the magazine to find out what went wrong.
"The entire Baby Boomer mentality is one of finding exceptions and, using those to claim the invalidity of the philosophy that opposes whatever the Boomers desire, creating a justification that allows them to seize power. If you do not support freedom for everyone (it helps to slowly enunciate each syllable in this word to emphasize its importance) then you are bad, and the new generation should take over."
The New America will fade away just as surly as the fraternity rape story did, but not without causing a great deal of acrimony and disruption to peoples lives while they wait for the "truth" to be told.

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
