NYT’s Accepts $ To Promote “Fearless Girl” Controversy

How fiercely crass is The New York Times? We’ll tell you.

On April 12th 2017 they promoted a “controversial” story about the “Fearless Girl” statue on Wall Street and how it turned the sculptor of the Wall Street bull rather peevish.

It turned out to generate massive coverage and feedback from people all over the world.

Great, you might say?

Not so great, we say.

Why?

Because the “Fearless Girl” statue was commissioned by State Street Capitol Advisors – Who The New York Times took Big $ from for a Big Ad in their same day’s Business Section which just so happened to blare – get this – “Sometimes Shit Happens.”

Well, actually, the ad said – “Sometimes —– Happens.”

But why be coy when you’re in bed with The New York Times and promoting yourself by ludicrously tying your corporate profits onto the back of the Women’s Rights Movement?

Talk about shame.

Shame on The New York Times.

Shame on State Street Capitol Advisors.

Shame on all those who got suckered into this false “discussion” of “Fearless Girl” when the real issue is about two corporations making a tempest in a teapot in order to generate corporate profits.

Jenner’s Controversial Pepsi Ad…Filmed In Thailand!

If you thought Pepsi and Kendall Jenner were tone deaf on race relations before, NOW it’s even worse!

That TV ad about race relations in America was actually filmed by Pepsi in Thailand!

Why?

Because it was CHEAPER.

Actor in Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi Ad Reveals Most Extras Were Not from U.S and Didn’t Understand the Racial Issues

People magazine talked to an extra on the shoot who spilled the beans. They said no one on the shoot even knew what was going on.

I mean, how many Black Lives Matters groups are there in Bangkok?

Again, a monstrous US multi-national corporation that cares only about profits tries to make money off the deaths and abuse of thousands of humans.

Pepsi – Pour a taste on a grave, why dontcha.

Indianapolis Company Angie’s List Sucks Up To Fox’s Sexual Harassing O’Reilly

As big corporate sponsors such as Mercedes Benz and Allstate withdrew their advertising money from Fox’s Bill O’Reilly’s TV program based on multiple lawsuits where he settled sexual harassment claims, the Indianapolis based corporation Angie’s List has decided to Stand By Its Sexually Harassing Man O’Reilly.

Cheryl Reed, spokeswoman for Angie’s List, as quoted¬† in The New York Times said, “Just as we trust members to make their own hiring decisions, we trust them to make their own media consumption decisions.”

Really?

By Angie’s List’s own logic, then…if a corporation such as Angie’s List CHOOSES to sponsor a PROVEN CORRUPTOR such as Bill O’Reilly, then consumers should CHOOSE NOT TO USE that corporation – ANGIE’S LIST.

Thanks for giving us that option, Angie!

Cause when Bill O’Reilly comes after you or your daughters or your friends or anyone you know, he’ll be smiling that creepy smile knowing YOU’VE got his back.

******************

Angie’s List has proudly touted their Indianapolis, Indiana headquarters location, knowing they are in the heart of Mike Pence territory where religious-backed Right-Wing politics rule the land and women’s rights are held in such low esteem that Governor Pence made it his policy never to sit down at a table with a single woman, fearing the supposed backhand of God swatting him across his dirty little mind.

Spielberg’s Film Dogged By Dog Abuse; Forget When His Film Murdered 3 Actors?

Some recent footage of an abused dog from the set of the Steven Spielberg produced “A Dog’s Purpose” brings back memories from the murderous set of 1983’s “The Twilight Zone.”

http://www.tmz.com/2017/01/18/a-dogs-purpose-video-suspension/

If you think a dog being abused is bad, how about a helicopter decapitating 2 actors and crushing a third? Two of them were child actors. The scene was being directed by John Landis but was under the supervision of producer Steven Speilberg.

Kind of puts things in perspective.

And no one ever found justice for the murdered actor Vic Morrow and the two children.

That’s Hollywood!

 

ESPN Sucks: 5 Takeaways

1. ESPN is owned by The Walt Disney Company, a  corporation that rakes in $52 Billion dollars every year and is only interested in making many more billions of dollars.

2. ESPN makes a habit of promoting the most powerful sports’ interests.

The latest example would be their blatant Duke/Louisville basketball commercials where they make a hero out of Duke’s creepy, cheating Grayson Allen. Does it matter to ESPN that Allen has been repeatedly kicking hitting opponents and is despised by most Americans who value sportsmanship?

No. ESPN wants to make this creep a hero.

3. The number one mantra of every good American should be: “Question Authority.” ESPN will never question authority because they are invested in the status quo.

See a bad call on the football field or on the ball court? ESPN announcers rarely question referees’ or officials’ calls. Questioning authority upsets the status quo. Even though all of America sees what is unfair, ESPN people are blind.

4. ESPN lies by omission.

Before Alabama woefully lost to Clemson in the national championship game, ESPN already crowned Alabama the champ, reporting countless stories and video feeds promoting the invulnerability of the Alabama football team.

Whoops!

Then after Clemson kicked Alabama’s butt in the championship game ESPN practically ignored the results and ignored Clemson’s victory.

Why?

Because ESPN owns the SEC Network where Alabama plays. It is in ESPN’s financial interest to promote Alabama.

Clemson? ESPN won’t make money off Clemson. So they ignore them.

Everyone’s up on fake news. How about “fake non-news?”

5. These “Takeaway” things are just plain silly so make up your own for this last one…

PS: Dan Dakich and Kirk Herbstreit are the 2 exceptions at ESPN: They are both very good at what they do.

Clemson Wins! ‘Bama Is The Hillary Clinton Of 2017

Everyone declared Alabama the National Champion of College Football before the game was even played Monday night.

Someone forgot to tell Clemson. They kicked Alabama’s butt 35-31 and left all the football pundits looking like the political geniuses who had Hillary Clinton as president.

It’s always sweet when the nation knows what’s going to happen while the national media does nothing but scream the opposite.

All season long the pundits have piled on about Alabama being the best football team. Yet Americans who watch the game knew that was far from true.

The laughable ESPN has for weeks planted headline-worthy stories crowning Alabama as champions; How many Americans know ESPN runs the SEC Network that ‘Bama represents? It is in ESPN’s financial interest to push ‘Bama as national champion, and that was what they did with all their sloppy journalistic might.

The New York Times had innumerable articles fronting ‘Bama as the leading team of America.

Well, all that falls flat on all their faces.

We knew better.

Now we can rub it in for an entire year.

Grayson Allen, (Yes!) Kicks BC Player! He Just Can’t Stop Himself

Duke played Boston College Saturday and what would a Duke game be without another high-kicking Grayson Allen move!

http://www.foxsports.com/college-basketball/story/grayson-allen-raised-eyebrows-awkward-leg-move-vs-boston-college-010817

It’s clearly time for Grayson Allen to just give up this basketball game and go ahead and join the high-stepping Radio City Rockettes.

At least on the stage he’ll finally be where he ought to be: Under the spotlights and getting paid for what he does best.
