Washington Post - "full-on Pravda reporting"

It is stupid, naive, and dangerous to continuously put forth the ridiculous canard that Islam is a "religion of peace." It is a religion built upon lies, ignorance and terror. The idiocy of not wanted to offend the poor Muslims is old, useless and tiresome; not to mention, it is down right suicidal. Islam's goal is our elimination. That won't change no mater how much fantasy press the Post gives it. m/r

Today, Trump White House official Sebastian Gorka is “profiled” — targeted in a scope, is more like it — in the Washington Post, which, of course, is owned by Jeff Bezos, as most people seem to know, and whose Amazon Web Services, most people don’t seem to know, has developed a $600 million computing cloud for the CIA that serves the 17 agencies making up the “intelligence community.”
I just thought I’d throw that bit of interlocking syngergy out there. By comparison, Bezos bought the whole Post for $250 million, which makes does make it a cheap rag. Naturally, its tone is cheap, too.
I mean, seriously, Post:
For years, Gorka had labored on the fringes of Washington and the far edge of acceptable debate as defined by the city’s Republican and Democratic foreign policy elite.
Sebastian Gorka is a friend of mine, just to let you know. But forget about decency, Post. Have you no sense of… irony? I will overlook the nasty-trite shot of “fringes” for the moment, but… “acceptable debate”? “Acceptable”? What is ”acceptable debate” in journalism these days? I am afraid you are not a newspaper but a secretarial pool if you have outsourced that decision to “the city’s Republican and Democratic foreign policy elite.”
