Washington Post nonfiction book critic Carlos Lozada underlined how well he matches his paper's red-hot hatred of the current president in his list of the "most memorable books I read in 2018." Cable-news personalities made the list, both good (CNN's Amanda Carpenter) and bad (Fox host Jeanine Pirro).
The Washington Post loves to present President Trump as boisterously snide...and quite obviously, they can't imagine anyone would apply that description to them. On Wednesday night, the Post website was boasting at least three articles ripping into Trump's behavior at the funeral, or his bad optics. This isn't a "newspaper." It's an Insult Aggregator.
Impolite question, but it needs to be asked: Is there a Republican dead body that left-wing partisans won’t use to bash Donald Trump? This week’s partisan corpse abusers callously exploited the passing of George H.W. Bush, America’s 41st president, to get in their digs at the current commander in chief. Their vulgar level of incivility was inversely propositional to their sanctimonious calls for decency.
As is routine for modern presidents to do, even when traveling short distances, President Trump used a motorcade to leave the White House, to greet President George W. Bush and Laura Bush Tuesday evening as the funeral proceedings for George H.W. Bush began. The Washington Post decided this was newsworthy enough to write a snarky headline and article about.
France’s increasingly violent “yellow vest” protests began as grassroots, working-class opposition to a fuel tax hike that was promoted by the government as climate change action. But network stories about the protests ignored the environmental motivations most of the time.
The Washington Post Magazine was unintentionally funny on Sunday, with a cover story raging against the idea that defenders of the Confederacy can't see history. The cover says: "The Confederacy was built on slavery. How can so many Southern whites still believe otherwise?" And yet, the magazine's weekly "Date Lab" article finds its lead character just precious. The headline is "She's a communist. He avoided politics." The Post wasn't going to mess this up by asking Kim Leimkuhl if communism is a philosophy built on dictatorship...."slavery," in a word.
The Washington Post on Thursday published a nasty, dismissive attack on Melania Trump, mocking the “gaffe”-prone First Lady and insisting she is just “just plain bad at this.” In the kind of attack not seen on other First Ladies (or at least Democratic First Ladies), columnist Monica Hesse tried to make some sort of conversation about the role of the position: “Every time Melania Trump makes another odd gaffe, I can’t help but see it as a useful thing for gender equality.”
Apparently “journalism” to The Washington Post now amounts to diagnosing mental illnesses of voting populations they don’t like by looking at their google searches. The paper published an article November 29 that is so mockable it’s surprising it's not satire, with the headline reading, “How Donald Trump appeals to men secretly insecure about their manhood.”
Whenever a Republican candidate loses a big election to a Democrat, he or she is expected to bow out gracefully and quietly to allow people in the liberal media to bask in the glow of being on the winning side. However, when a member of the Grand Old Party wins the contest, those same people in the press obviously feel justified in venting their frustration by downplaying the significance of the election. That was the case on Tuesday evening in Mississippi, where Washington Post reporters Matt Viser and David Weigel did their best to undercut the victory of Republican Senator-elect Cindy Hyde-Smith over black Democrat Mike Espy by using racially charged terms throughout their article on the election.
Do you believe in life after Trump? Legendary songstress Cher isn’t sure she does, according to an interview with The Washington Post.
Conservatives, you can blame them for everything. On the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Washington Post featured an essay by University of Texas journalism professor Bill Minutaglio blaming the Tea Party for killing of JFK. He offered this bizarre, nutty take: “To find the very roots of the Tea Party of 2013, just go back to downtown Dallis in 1963, back to the months leading up to the Kennedy assassination.”
The Washington Post displayed its typical tilt in a snide gossip feature on Thanksgiving Day on which celebrity "turkeys" deserve a pardon, like the president pardons turkeys each year. Post "Reliable Source" gossips Emily Heil and Helena Andrews-Dyer made a very predictable list: liberals and anti-Trumpers, pardoned. Trumpers and Fox Newsers, not pardoned. They even put Melania Trump on the Not Pardoned list.
