Bezos WaPo Robots Blast Record Fake News at Trump on ObamaCage Crisis
Even though the Trump Boom made him the richest man in the history of the galaxy, Jeff Bezos’ blog, a/k/a the Washington Post, screeched a record amount of Fake News Wednesday on what I’m calling the ObamaCage Crisis. The name comes from Trump inheriting the children in the ObamaCage crisis from Obama.
Below I list the 23 stories on the crisis, or related to it, on WaPo’s Internet Front Page as of about 7:10 pm Pacific Time, June 20, 2018. I’ve provided the links to click for readers seeking extra amusement.
The links are to the original stories, except for the last three for videos whose links I could not copy. I listed the stories as they appeared online, from left to right and top to bottom.
Each of the 23 stories is anti-Trump. Not one says something positive. Not one headline mentions the crime of child trafficking that happens under a policy of letting any illegal immigrant with children loose without thorough vetting.
Some of the descriptors from the headlines: reversal … miserable … embarrassing … surrender … tightrope … abandons … changed … ending … blowtorch … racial … tensions … repugnant … caves … embarrassing… sycophants … decency … eroded … torn … bad … condemnation … asylum … suing … separation … lingers … separated … defies … separated … immoral … threatens … separation … isolationism …cynical … hypocrite.
Maybe one of Bezos’ computer programmers ginned up an algorithm that churns this stuff out using random adjectives attached to whatever is the day’s top story like the 100,000 robots in Amazon warehouses.
I did not list several other WaPo stories on Trump on other issues – all negative.
It’s amusing that some of the 23 stories are labeled “Perspective” and “Analysis,” even though all are extreme anti-Trump hit pieces.
Also funny is Fake News Story No. 8: “The Trump administration changed its story on family separation no fewer than 14 times before ending the policy.” Notice how it combines two things: the “story” and the “policy.” What really happened is Trump, Congress and the country engaged in a weeklong discussion of what policy to adopt, culminating in Trump’s actually nebulous Executive Order. Isn’t that how democracy is supposed to work? What about the Post’s motto, “Democracy Dies in Darkness”?
Here are the 23 Fake News stories on Trump and the ObamaCage crisis:
13. Analysis: Trump torn: Is it better to get good press or bad?
20. Perspective – We are more than refugees. We are human beings with human stories.
21.Analyzing Kirstjen Nielsen’s defense of family separation
22.A brief history of isolationism in the United States
