90+% of our press are……..dopes

Now let us explain, s’il vous plait.

First what meaneth the dots in the title above?  Simple answer – we don’t print most of the words – well none of ‘em – that preceded the descriptive definition – dopes.

How did we calculate the 90%?  Simpler answer – we have been around for a while – quite a while.  Actually we do use the descriptive + plus sign because it has always been very obvious that it is more than 90% but we were not certain of using 95+% and obviously knew that 100% would be at least modestly difficult to defend.  Alas – it can’t be defended and here are two good reasons why:

1. First a guy by the name of John Kass.  We’ve read him for a long, long time.  He is a Chicago guy –well he is on the second page of the Chicago Tribune and this is what we usually – no, not always, but darn near – like and admire about this one man – he is getting better and better by the day – by that we simply mean in our opinion – this one dopey guy writing these few words – he sees the situation and he knows darn well it is not good and yet he still has to balance that with good writing or else – well you figure out what else, huh?  An example – well read his article published today and afterwards ask yourself this simple question – the dopes in the 90+% of today’s American media and the one pile of ____ party cannot bring themselves to apply one standard to all – and that is just one of the reasons so many are not worth watching/reading/listening to.

2.  Now the next guy – a guy named Jason L. Riley.   Holy smokes folks we have just found him recently (last year or so) – not over the years as mentioned about the guy above.  Not only is he a darn good writer and observer and simply aware of what the heck is actually going on - he has the ability and the skill and simply the guts to put it together and write it/reveal it and not give a tinkle of nonsense to diminish it.  Why do we mention this characteristic?  Well name a Republican who acts in a similar fashion, huh?   Mr. Riley is located at the Wall Street Journal. 

Closing comments s’il vous plait.

Now we are pretty darn sure you may need to subscribe to one or both outfits to promptly get their commentaries – observations – wonderful writings.  But we also think you may be able to get their writings by moving around and checking up on them.  Pls don’t hold us to that.

Up to you – we do find them way above – really those words are woefully inadequate to describe their observations and simple presentations compared with 90+% of the dopes in America’s media today and yes we mean 90+% of the TV dopes (heck, we are probably being rather generous  in limiting that observation to just 90+% of them dopes, huh?)

Our modest closing suggestion – turn off the TV – read these guys – find others – heck if you’ve got a good one let us know, huh?   But also know this – we will check ‘em out and maybe agree – maybe not, huh?
