An eye for an eye. Wait a minute, that would be too sensible.
Leave it to the Washington Post in practicing the antithesis to the foundational tenets of journalism and emphasizing a refined and calculated bias, rather than factual reporting outside the confines of the laissez-faire editorial section in conveniently and deviously exchanging progressive insanity for reason. Apparently, blind hope intermixed with innocuous group think proliferates throughout the newsroom in the nation’s capital, and banishes truth to the Hades of the obsolete in a city famous for the originating the back stabbing intellectual intercourse of the sultry Potomac two step, which is interchangeable of course with the apropos river Styx hornpipe in melding devious intrigue and a cascading demonic exothermic inferno somewhere and nowhere in the subterranean caverns of hell.
The latest hot off the press innovative controversy involves the delightfully ruthless matriarch of California Nancy Pelosi, an obviously edited video clip of the aforementioned demagogue, the fluidic schizophrenia of the F***book community perpetually oscillating official interpretation of online community standards, and the audacity of reporter at one of the nation’s largest newspaper to go full scale Ministry of Truth style in omitting and amending history. But again, the basic rules do not apply to a certain exclusive ideology set on micromanaging the complete facet of intricacies and nuances that define an individual attempting to purse happiness. The insufferable “Niles Crane” approach to governance and societal engineering is anything but comedic, unless the dark Leninist satire illustrated by the disturbing notion of “We’ll shoot the opposition with a smile on our face,” is applied to the hipster trend of the counterculture movement tributaries flooding every waking moment of the vulnerable and gullible younger generations with intoxicating propaganda. As mirrors have been replaced by social media in projecting delusion and envy, and not reflecting character, where does a competent news professional find solace and perspective, or just a plain old fashioned smack in the face dosage of tough love reality, after publicly submitting an article that transcends bias? In a culture where tolerance and decency steadily yield to instant gratification, pathological narcissism, and anonymous online community posting, is personal responsibility and accountability going extinct as priorities are recalibrated?
The heavily scrutinized Washington Post piece focused on the viral release of doctored video clip showing Pelosi publicly speaking while allegedly on the tipsy downward spiral of a bender. Categorized as news, the misleading clip emanated like wildfire across the social networks, and sparking a sea of outrage from leftists, including a CNN media personality, and a mainstream newspaper reporter. Exacerbating the controversy, Mark Zuckerberg and crew brought two gasoline tanker semi trucks to the wildfire of the party in allowing the video to persist. Quite possibly, the much maligned “dear leader” of the social network universe is having second thoughts and an instance of guilty conscience full-scale backtracking in the wake of the documented privacy breaches, and the blatant bias in deliberately limiting conservative content from organically percolating or being shared between political allies.
In disappointing fashion, the Washington Post story fails to acknowledge the instance of the release of an altered Trump video during a television newscast in Seattle earlier this year, or formulate the conclusion that the both sides play dirty pool with the mind numbing and brain cell killing combination of multi-media egregious edits and rhetoric edits colliding with the razor blade fan sensibility shredding critical thinking eliminator of social media. Ironically, there is no mention of the damaging corporate unwritten policy towards the treatment of right-leaning content by F***book or Twitter, even after the CEO of the vortex for deconstructing the eloquence and context of language in the least amount of characters and emoticons, Jack Dorsey went on record and divulged the prevalence of liberalism ingrained within the tech culture. However, in the contemporary future shock world where opinion is fact and evidence is only brought to the forefront of the conversation if it benefits a political position, denial is not simply a river in Egypt, but a vehicle that transports and defines an agenda intertwined with visceral complexities.
Love him or hate him, the point is “fake news” is “fake news” and unacceptable in the mainstream press.
The truly joyous and uplifting experience of digesting the prevarications of the Washington Post article, was skimming through the comments section. It is difficult to believe that some of the individuals who go by a nickname, handle, a pun, or a series of numbers, actually take their viewpoints seriously, the the incessant diatribe of rants and thoughts should be read only after consuming a shot of Whiskey, or at least a viable spirit of choice.

-If a liberal politician such as Elizabeth Warren gives misleading information, all politicians do it, and it is thus justified. If a conservative politician lies, the only solution is impeachment.
