Simple but Nice

This podcast is very quick and simple. I like that it gets down to the point fast and answers the question immediately. It almost feels like a infomercial. I don’t recomend to everybody.

Brain what? Brain fart on the media

Journalism as a profession today is no more honorable a trade than prostitution, and quite possibly less. There is a reason why the media ranks dead last in polls on trusts worthiness. People trust politicians today more than the media. This podcast is insulting our collective intelligence by trying to convince us that this brothel is an honest-to-goodness massage parlor. We’re not listening because we’re stupid, in case you forgot. The liberal mainstream media and its various outlets, to include this podcast, follow a moral compass that no longer points to true North. You’ve decided among yourselves ‘North will be for us whatever we say it is’. The Fake News media is indeed a bold harlot. If you would see evidence of its prostitution, I recommend reading “Unfreedom of The Press” by Mark R. Levin and definitely check out his podcast. He is a wise and learned man.
