Stupid media tricks

Thomas Lifson   "One of the classic leftist media tricks is back. This one is among my favorites because it relies on the stupidity of the readers, and obviously this outlet knows its audience.

"Let’s all play “Guess the political party!”

"A Texas correspondent sends in this classic example:

From Texas Monthly’s daily news summary: 
"State Senator Carlos Uresti had a bad day on Thursday, when the FBI and IRS raided his law office in San Antonio, confiscating documents and other stuff. According to the San Antonio Express-News, the raid was in connection to a now-bankrupt fracking sand company that has been accused of fraud." . . . More here.

Kurtz: New Poll Shows Voters Have 'So Much Distrust' of the Media "Howard Kurtz says that the latest Fox News Poll shows that Americans are "so polarized" and that there is "so much distrust" of the media.
"The poll, released Friday evening, reflected that 45 percent of voters trust President Trump more than the media, while 42 percent say the media are more trustworthy.
"On "The First 100 Days" tonight, Kurtz said the poll should elicit some "soul-searching for our [journalistic] professionals.' " . . .
