Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

It's hard to name everything for which I'm thankful.  I've got friends, near and far, a warm house, critters who seem to like me above and beyond being their food source.  I'm blessed to know people who are talented, knowledgeable, clever and who enrich my life everyday with their words and thoughts.   I have a partner who is smart, clever, well-read and who makes me think and analyze the incoming barrage of news and events.  Oh, and he makes for great eye-candy too and happens to be a gourmet-level cook.

My heartfelt thanks to all of those who could not be home today because they are standing watch and protecting us and are between us and those who would cause us harm.

Be safe, all!

When you have lost NPR....

So, I forewent my morning conversation with Mr B to some some exploration of radio reporting on Ferguson.  WLS-all over it.  Much to my surprise, NPR, not so much.  They had a lovely piece on the Gulf oil spill and elusive flycatcher birds.

So I figure this silence means one of two things--either NPR is all butthurt because it is clear that Mike Brown was not the choir boy that he was made out to be or else NPR is carrying water for Obama who only now says that the "rule of law" must prevail (oh the irony of that statement coming out of that particular mouth).

Complicit media

So the former Fourth Estate here in the US has proven once again that they are merely lapdogs of the government, as long as there's a Dem in power.  The seemingly MIA 'Ebola Czar' has apparently not been so much MIA, but has been working behind the scenes with the MSM to persuade them to stop reporting on possible Ebola cases (and probably Enterovirus D68 as well) because that reporting was making the administration look bad (because the truth hurts) and was influencing the election away from the Dems (because the truth hurts).

So gee, honestly reporting what's going on has as much, or more, of an effect on the American people as the histrionics that will surely appear in January when the calls of an obstructionist Congress will surely begin (has already started).

BTW, has anybody heard what's going on with Kaci Hickox??  Her 21 days are up on Monday but aside from some puff articles from four days ago, haven't heard a peep.

Regardless, the MSM has shown that they cannot be trusted if they are willing to put their ideology in the way of truthful reporting.
