How to determine the political stance of a newspaper

Commentary and editing by Jim Campbell

The news paper has become an anachronism, much like the buggy whip was rendered use less with the advent of the automobile.  Losing advertising revenues and having a dwindling subscriber base; they now for the most part depend upon digital equivalents brought to the reader on the Internet.  Their revenue adds that are annoying to be clicked on.  How often does the reader bother with that?

By the time it reaches the news stand or one’s door it is no longer news.  Of course the real story lies with their agenda, telling us things that are usually untrue while failing to tell us about that which is that “they deem”  we aren’t smart enough to understand.   Has anyone figured out yet that Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t Assassinate President JFK?   If you have doubtlessly it came from your own desire for the truth.

Employment numbers, just another obfuscation using phony numbers

1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country. (Pay heed, they make the money, understand capitalism, are frequently denigrated for doing so.  (They are among the “Evil Rich” who don’t pay their “Fair Share” by sanctimonious politically correct progressives who believe the can decide what is “fair.”  One of my favorite is the so-called “windfall profit, enough, you hate profit of any kind and fail to realize the taxes paid upon profits all you to work in an over paid, unionized job)

 2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country. (Actually they are in the positions to do so but reading the tripe within and living in the beltway bubble they are incapable of leading a brownie troop.) Those in the know have switched to the Washington Times for the real story and not fantasy and illusion.)

 3. The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country and who are very good at crossword puzzles. (For the most part it serves as the bird-cage liner, fish wrapper, and puppy house trainer for those that want their friends to think they are elitist and special.)

(More Below)

4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don’t really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts. (With few subscribers, it is given away free and many of the top end hotel chains.)

5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn’t mind running the country, if they could find the time, and if they didn’t have to leave Southern California to do it. (Used for the most part as the NY Times is. For the most part caters to those that like reading about crime, gang violence, it is a good sports section and TV guide.  Few readers understand the liberal tilt, not being educated well enough to do so.)

6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country and did a poor job of it, thank you very much. ( Let’s not forget, if you want a better shot at the truth subscribe or go on-line to the US version of Pravda)

7. The New York Post is read by people who don’t care who is running the country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated. ( It was also designed with a book type format easily read on overcrowded subways while grabbing and holding on for dear life while reading.)

8. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but need the baseball scores. (It’s editors have finally begun to understand the demographics of their readers as in Se habla Españo. they plan to come out with a Spanish edition in 2019.)

9. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is read by people who want only the score of the Cardinals game. They drink Budweiser, Budweiser, and wait a minute — what was the question? (You got to love this town, only could the renowned announcer Harry Carry be banging the owner, Augie Bush’s wife and land on his feet with a lifetime contract announcing for the Chicago Cubs.  Isn’t America great?)

10. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren’t sure if there is a country or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are handicapped minority feminist atheist dwarfs who also happen to be illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy, provided of course, that they are not Republicans. ( I guess for politically correct reasons they left out gays, lesbians, and those choosing to become what they aren’t but believe they should be, let’s call it gender confusion shall we?  Much can be said about their confused view of the world.   Readers are highly interested in gay marriages.)

11. The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store.   ( Indeed, when they aren’t getting sued they tend to break some serious stories.)

12. The Seattle Times is read by people who have recently caught a fish and need something to wrap it in. (Forgetting that they are too busy to read it as they are frequently hugging trees or to stoned to read it when they aren’t.)

  1. You left out Chicago.

  2. So in other words no newspaper is doing a good job at reporting. As they are not on the news shows of the alphabet networks. Journalism is so losing any good ones these days. Leaves the people out of ever learning the truth. But with Washington the truth is something they know nothing about.

  3. Excellent Big Jim…

  4. Jim do you think that Foxnews is being forced to the left the closer we get to voting…I look at the headline on newspapers and the itself are getting smaller all the time…
