New York’s Supercilious Scribe

New York’s Supercilious Scribe

One of the downsides of my job as a commentator on politics and public affairs is that I am required to check out ALL the major – and some not so major – news shows on a daily basis.  It has become an increasingly unpleasant part of my day as so-called news services are taken over by a biased and (even worse) dishonest culture of arrogant elitists on the left.  Arguably, the worst disease infecting New York at this time is the brain-warped reporting of a small culture of millionaire left-wing elitists.

Like the COVID-19 virus, the cancer of propagandized media bias and arrogance has struck New York more than almost any place in the World – with the Washington press corps and the controlled media in such places as China, Russian and North Korea serving as other examples.

Every now and then, these supercilious scribes give us an unintentional peek into their mindset.  I have, on occasion, referred to MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski’s slip of the tongue. As a counterpoint to a statement by President Trump, Brzezinski declared that “It is our (the media’s) job to tell the public what to think.  That sentiment underlies her repetitious calls on the media to NOT air Trump’s daily briefings.

The Brzezinski hubris was seen implemented when discredited left-wing millionaire MSNBC host, Brian Williams cut off the President’s briefing and announced that he would keep the public informed on any relevant information.  What followed was not even reporting on the briefing, but the return to Trump-bashing by Williams and his panel of parroting pundits.

MSNBC “Morning Joe’s” chief supplicant, Willie Geist, also revealed the utter arrogance of that tight-knit New York media culture – and their unabashed disdain for average Americans. When talking about the severe impact the COVID-19 virus has had on New York, he declared the Big Apple to be “arguably the most important city on the face of the earth.”  By any of various measures, New York City would not even be in the top ten of the most important cities in the world. If we were to add another definition to the word “arrogance” it would be “Willie Geist”  — but if we did that, we would have a whole lot of other media personalities in competition for the dubious honor.

Bias and arrogance are the marks of the authoritarians.  They not only want to rule over we lesser folks, but they believe that they DO rule over us.  It is the obligation of their misguided sense of noblesse oblige.

If you need to see even one example of the outrageous bias in the east coast media, consider this.  People like Brzezinski and her spouse and co-host, Joe Scarborough, press a prosecutorial brief against Trump ad nauseum – citing the statistics of the outbreak in America as the rationale for their obsessive criticism.

Their own New York City has more cases than any city in America — and now more than any nation on earth!!!  That is astounding.  How could that happen?  Despite that grim figure, the left-wing New York press praises what they call the outstanding work of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio – two people less prepared and less prescient – and slower to respond – than virtually any governor or mayor in America.

These are not unintelligent people.  They are well educated.  But intelligence without ethics is toxic – and especially dangerous in a profession that the public relies on for accurate and balanced information.  When journalism is devoid of ethics, it becomes propaganda.  It is the primary tool of the authoritarians — those who believe in a Big Brother government, as long as they are our Big Brother.

So, there ‘tis.
