Former New York City radio star Brian Wilson and I have thumping the feds on our weekly radar. My recent trip to Hartford spurred some fresh smackdowns of TSA. Covid mandate madness and bootlicking reporters took a wallop as well. We talked about the growing resistance in Congress to endless spending for Ukraine. I recapped the bizarre new definition of “independent media” – on the federal dole. But President Biden received nothing but honorifics. Well, mostly.
“A lot of journalists have risen to the top in Washington by kowtowing to the government. Presidents or top officials get fawning coverage because the journalist is hoping for a one-on-one interview that will be the high point of their career. Mind you, that’s not the scorecard I use.”
“U.S. media coverage of the Ukraine War symbolizes how the bullshit radars have not only been turned off – they have been smashed into a thousand pieces.”
“It’s amazing how liberal Democrats in Congress have all fallen in line to support unlimited U.S. intervention in the Ukraine war.”
My final comment on the Wednesday podcast: “It’s a good tune-up for a Hump Day evening.”
