My SaidWhatMedia amigo – and favorite political pundit of Bre’r Kennel – AgentPierce posted a kick-butt Lalapalooza of a column Thursday night. As is his custom, he rares back and “let’s it go”…. sending the Kennel-types scurrying for hidey-holes.
I’m NOT going to LINK the whole column here because I know some of you have delicate sensitivities to anything challenging your “core beliefs”. Pierce has a tendency to do serious damage to “overly fragile core beliefs”. I figure those of you clever enough to “appreciate AgentPierce” can figure out how to get over to his website.
But I am going to share one especially OMG descriptive column-ette gleaned from his current piece. It doesn’t need context…. and does involve The Infamous UNC BOG …..
Reposted herein with permission of AgentPierce…. 4/22/16.
Rhetorical question…. how many “negative tweets” constitute a newsworthy Liberal Backlash ? Surely “a backlash” has to be at least a dozen. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker posted a sincere twitter tribute to Prince earlier today. A “news website” headline screamed – LIBERAL BACKLASH at Scott Walker – there were FOUR snarky tweets …. FOUR! A handful less a pinky!
It’s like those monthly MASS PROTESTS at UNC BOG meetings that NEVER have more than 20-or so weak-chinned, pimply-faced hobbits yelling obscenities.
When “the media” outnumbers “the protestors” it is NOT a newsworthy event IMO.
For the record, I have it on solid source, that 5-6 of the loudest obscenity-screamers are Jim Goodmon’s WRAL employees covering the event. Jim, Jim, Jim… shame on you Jim.
Am I the only one who wonders why “area media” never reports WHO those “obscene little hobbits” are. Are they even real students or just Franklin Street flotsam ? Franklin Street has a tradition of accumulating a lot of just flotsam “majoring in” Life Isn’t Fair and Advanced Woeful Whining.
NC State does not offer “that unique curriculum”. Just Duke and UNC-CH locally. THAT might make for an interesting column….
“Area media” seems so fascinated by’em, but never tell you anything about them. How come dat, you reckon ???
