Mediaite Guy Is Not Happy That Bernie Sanders Used the Word ‘Niggardly’ in 1986

Good morning liberals! What are we outraged about today?

Published

Mediaite writer and editor took to Twitter on Tuesday to complain about the word choice of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in a clip from 1986.

“‘I am not going to be niggardly about funding for daycare…’ – Bernie Sanders 1986,” Tommy Christopher said, quoting Sanders.

“I know it’s not a slur, but I’ve always wondered why a person would choose to say that word, when ‘stingy’ would do just as well.”

Niggardly is a perfectly good English word, though this reporter prefers parsimonious. Perhaps it’s uncomfortable for the middle-aged white liberal crowd wimps among us.

There may be an underlying motive for Christopher’s faux-outrage, though.

In his Twitter bio, he describes himself as a “ShareBlue alum.” ShareBlue is a leftist propaganda organization run by Media Matters’ David Brock (read: George Soros), which earned a reputation for being critical of Sanders during his 2016 run for president. They were team Clinton all the way, and they weren’t shy about letting America know. Who could blame them, really? After all, it was Hillary’s turn to be president.

Hitting political candidates for non-slurs used 33 years ago should probably be relegated from the political playbook, but given that I’m not in the business of defending that commie Bernie Sanders, and watching Democrats eat themselves alive is funny, perhaps we can let it slide this time around.

Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”

Project much, Jim?

Published

CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”

Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:

I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”

Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
