….which means there is a great opportunity for any of you who want to launch your own web-based media either national or more importantly state and local websites and blogs.
I have for years—a dozen actually—been urging all of you to consider writing your own blogs.
There is a crying need for citizen investigative journalists who would follow various government programs as watch dogs.
And, as local newspapers die, you should consider becoming the news outlet in your own community, county or state. What are you waiting for!
There may be silver linings to be found with this COVID crisis after all. Small local newspapers are likely to go down, see here at The Hill last week:
Local news outlets struggle to survive coronavirus fallout
Sad (maybe), but if your city or county is like mine, the local newspaper was long ago gobbled up by a Left-leaning mega media company blatantly putting its slant on the local news.
Enough of the nagging, here is what I wanted you to see that should bring a smile to your faces.
From Kurt Schlichter writing at Town Hall (hat tip: Paul):
Our Super Smart Elite Shines During This Pandemic!
We Americans are truly blessed by having a mainstream media full of brilliant renaissance men, women, and gender non-specific entities who are masters of so many varied and intermittently useful skills and who are eager to share their knowledge with us benighted souls. The pandemic has revealed that every urban Twitter blue check scribbler, MSNBCNN panelist, NYT/WaPo doofus, and barely legal “senior editor” of a website you never heard of, is a Nobel Prize-winning epidemiologist, a master logistician, and a diversity consultant too boot.
They may all be lousy journalists, but damn it, they are also lousy at other jobs that they didn’t even pretend to train to do.
It’s awesome to see people with zero life experience in any relevant field weighing in as if we shouldn’t just laugh in their pimply faces.
The media largely fell for the Imperial College Apocalypse Flu scenario, but then they wanted to. It’s more fun to be chronicling the Fall of Rome than Just Another Day in the Third Century A.D. under Emperor Elagabalus. The doomsayers ended up walking back their zillion dead to a few thousand dead, and the media just sort of ignored it because “Phew! Dodged a bullet!” doesn’t have the same resonance as “WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE (and it’s Trump’s fault, not our ChiCom friends’ fault).”
Our media is garbage, full of clowns and dilettantes with no experience and less common sense. The media is now complaining that the pandemic is hurting its industry badly and that some of the media may go under because of the Woking Pneumonia.
Read it all because we all need a good laugh these days!
