Thirsty Media Chokes on Giuliani Pranks

Thirsty for everything that will overshadow Biden’s “Bad Seed” son, the media pushes two easily verifiable, but false, stories about Rudy Giuliani. If ever we wondered what journalists learn at university, we can rest assured it’s neither how to fact check a source nor understand satire. Add in some Twitter hypocrisy, and the entire incident is “so 2020!”.

In a delicious serving of irony, a college student (probably the last democrat college student with a sense of humor) crafted fake tweets that the media chugged like thirsty freshman at a kegger. Two questions come to mind: why didn’t Twitter’s “all knowing fake information” squad flag the tweets, and why didn’t the talking heads bother to do more research beyond reading Twitter?

The fake tweets were supposed to be between Rudy Giuliani and Ivanka Trump. Tweet author Nick Roberts has since locked down his page. But screen shots are forever, and the Indianapolis Monthly has them. The exchange “between” Rudy and Ivanka is really between Nick Roberts and his twin brother.

Nick is calling it satire, but we can call it what it really is – a huge hoax perpetrated on the mouth foaming anti-Trump media types.

Like these chuckle heads,

It takes a special sort of stupid to consider oneself a “professional journalist”, and yet run with this trash. Then again it’s Maddow at MSNBC, Wren of Politico, and Freedlander at PoliticoMagazine. These three salivate at the idea of a November bombshell that will help their anti-Trump agenda, and make people forget the crack smoking, influence peddling Biden & Son political team.

So then,  what about the recent Twitter freeze of the New York Post account? White House Press Secretary suspension from the platform? Okay, obviously Twitter wants to help out Hunter Biden, and did so by preventing anyone from sharing the crack-head computer story. But how does Twitter square the hole when they have blocked an actual, legitimate satire site? The Babylon Bee had their account suspended for violating Twitter’s ever changing Ministry of Truth guidelines. FOXNews reports the Bee was notified,

Your account, TheBabylonBee has been suspended for violating the Twitter Rules. Specifically for: Violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam,” Twitter wrote in an e-mail posted by Mann. “You may not use Twitter’s services in a manner intended to artificially amplify or suppress information or engage in behavior that manipulates or disrupt’s people’s experience on Twitter.”

Unlike Nick Roberts, the extremely talented writers at The Babylon Bee know satire and don’t back down when challenged. Earlier this year they took on CNN (“CNN Attacks Babylon Bee: ‘The Internet is Only Big Enough For One Fake News Site.”) after the network complained their stories generated less traffic than the Bee’s,

“‘They’re obviously amateurs over there at The Bee,'” a fictitious Stelter stated. “‘A lot of times, their reporting comes true. If you’re gonna do fake news, do it right — 100% fake, guaranteed, 24/7. They really should learn from the pros over here at CNN… Stay out of our territory.'”

I won’t hold my breath waiting for Twitter to suspend the accounts that shared obviously false information, and then apply one set of rules to all users. We already know that all animals are equal, but some are more equal. We will need to be content with the comfort that neither Twitter nor “professional journalists” are capable of discerning between fact and outlandish fiction.

“Borat” 2 paints Rudy Giuliani as a thirsty old man who is behaving badly with a young woman

Today was the ultimate fiction fiasco for the media. Nick’s tweets were based around another misleading Rudy Giuliani story –  Netflix’s “Borat” sequel. The media sphere lit up with accusations of Rudy groping himself while in the company of a girl he was led to believe as underaged. Anyone familiar with characters created by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen will recognize the name, and type of ambush filmmaking that is the cornerstone of his work.

Barstool Sports uses some really graphic language to give a rundown on the topic. Seriously, it’s the best discussion, with the most base language. But everything else on the internet is “Oh my gosh, Rudy is a pervert who needs to be thrown in a cell”, and frankly it’s not the case.

The standard cast of characters immediately jumped to paint Rudy as a creeper who was fondling himself. Incendiary comments ratchet up the mis-information. For example, wording and tone in The Guardianis consistent with the main stream media’s approach to reporting the incident,

… the former New York mayor and current personal attorney to Donald Trump is seen reaching into his trousers and apparently touching his genitals while reclining on a bed in the presence of the actor playing Borat’s daughter, who is posing as a TV journalist.”

The Guardian is trash, like so many other outlets in America. But people see the picture and believe what they think is legitimate reporting. It’s times like these that I’m sad that nobody reads “Mother Jones“, who tweets,

Thankfully, there’s still a few legitimate reporters out there who ascribe to a code of ethics. Or maybe are tired of JMTSU (Ju-Mit-Sue: shorthand for “Just making the shit up”) reporting. Either way, it’s a pleasantly bad day for crummy talking heads and biased reporters. And that is a good day for me, and our Republic.

    Biden & Son political team
    OK, they’re not really a political team. They’re a grifting team. Joe is the political half, and Hunter is the con half.

    The Guardian is trash, like so many other outlets in America.
    The Grauniad isn’t in America.

    But I do not think the description of the “hand in the pants” thing is fair.
    Yeah, that’s an understatement.

    It’s only a good day for our side if the electorate sees the corrections and not just the snark and the stills running around social media.

    • I think they’re both grifters. Joe just happens to schtick the public at large.

      I’m aware the Guardian is in the UK. I should have eliminated “other” that implies it’s a US publication. (but it’s still trash)

      I have little faith in the electorate to do more than superficially gloss over the topic. Funny that today I read someone say that they were disgusted by the process of late term judicial appointments, and wish Obama had been afforded the same consideration (his lack of Senate votes notwithstanding)… She said, “I’m voting completely Blue this election!”. My response was that she must not have been very Red to start with if all it took was one legitimate process to make her swap.Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Biden’s bad seed gets more attention and can sway those few who are not completely set in their decision.

        Despite Romney getting roundly smacked over it, he was right when he said that ~47% of the electorate is gonna vote for Democrats – even if they caught Biden sleeping with Kamala and a goat. Some large portion of our adults are indoctrinated into a progressive worldview, and some subset of that will therefore vote full progressive no matter what. It’s a religion.

        Until we get “the people” much better educated and morally responsible, and voting with their brains instead of their guts, we’re gonna have to cross our fingers at every election. (As I’ve said multiple times, 2020 isn’t what I’m worried about. It’s 2024 when we no longer have Trump fighting on our side. We need to find a set of fighters between now and then and vet them thoroughly.)

        • The goat and Kamala might garner him more votes…. 😉
          It’s true. Same for people voting in higher taxes… if almost half pay nothing, and some of those get credit above their no bill.. why not vote for more taxes.
          2024… Newsom will try his hand. That scares me!
