Our Mirthless News Media

What’s the old saying?  “Laughter is the best medicine.”  But for our mirthless news media, laughter, amusement, fun, pleasure, even joie de vivre, is quite beyond them.

These guys really need to be injected with a dose of fun.

Yesterday President Trump tweeted out this Daily Wire Photoshop:

And our mirthless news media pretended not to get the joke.  At least I hope they were pretending. Something tells me, however, that they really are this humorless and obtuse.

Huffington Post’s White House Correspondent S.V. Dáte tweeted the image saying, “Fine, just the president of the United States disseminating a doctored image created by a right-wing propaganda site.”

“Disseminating.” As if President Trump is trying to pass this off as an actual photo.

Good grief, either these guys are idiots or they think we are.

Twitter “moments” included this gem:

Our Mirthless News Media - Twitter moments

It’s “altered?!” Say it ain’t so!!

I’m sorry. But who outside of our Trump-hating media needed this confirmed by the New York Times?

That so-called “highly respected” Paper of Record felt the need to write an entire article (written by not one, but two reporters) about what is obviously a ‘Shop image.

As did the Washington Post.

Democracy dies in mirthless darkness.

“How dare the President tweet out what is clearly a doctored image!!!  This is unconscionable!  IMPEACH!!!!”

Okay, that’s the best, most hilarious response ever.

I cannot imagine going through life as humorless as our mirthless news media.

Clearly Trump Derangement Syndrome eats away the part of the brain that allows one to find the fun in life.

Last night on Twitter, Ben Shapiro shared a screen capture of the email the Washington Post’s mirthless reporter Alex Horton sent Shapiro’s business partner Jeremy Boreing requesting comment on the photo:

Mirthless Alex Horton

He also shared Boreing’s succinct response:

Jeremy Boreing full of mirth

And how did Alex Horton write up Boreing’s response in the mirthless Washington Post’s piece?

Jeremy Boreing, the chief operating officer at the Daily Wire, dismissed emailed questions about whether the altered photo originated from his publication.

Actually, Alex.  He didn’t dismiss the question. But I do think he was dismissing you.

The New York Times went so far as to determine which Medal of Honor winner was the victim of this devious Photoshop image in order to get a comment from him.

But unlike our mirthless news media, MoH winner Jason McCloughlan found the fun in it.

Do these idiots think going all-hands-on-deck over this lighthearted tweet makes Trump look bad?

Because it doesn’t it doesn’t make Trump look bad.

It does, however, make our mirthless news media look like the biggest, most humorless prats on the planet.

    We have to realize that their news is geared towards joyless idiots just like them. Of course they have to explain that a meme is photo-shopped and not really what happened, otherwise their readers and viewers might actually think it’s true. The left can’t meme and they prove it by how they react to them.

    Yeah, I was gonna say pretty much what Cynthia J said- many such idjits actually do need to have this explained to them. Besides the need to keep the outrage bubbling, for real reasons or fake.

    Of course, Dianny, or even I, *ahem* might’ve cleaned up that photoshop just a pixel here and there, but it’s pretty nicely done anyway.

    I thought the doggie footprint medallion was a nice touch.

    The media cannot stand it for one second if any patriotic or positive meme that reflects well on Trump exists. They are committed to making sure that every American shares their doom and gloom outlook on life. This is what pisses them off the most about Trump.

    Trump figured out early on that simply being positive about America and success would drive them into hyperspace. I have come to realize his twitter account is both to inspire as well as entertain his followers as we watch the left melt down over and over. I would add, he takes it just far enough and as far as I can tell does not overdo it for the sake of his own enjoyment.

    Awarding the dog that participated in the successful raid is a perfect tweak of the already outraged liberals and their media cronies. In the long run this just demonstrates again how the left has no palpable sense of humor.

    Dianny,
    Maybe you could do a photoshop of Trump awarding a medal of “honor” to Luke Skywalker (except the medal has a picture of a lightsaber). And then ask the MSM if that is photoshopped.

    It’s simple. The left is without Faith. With no true joy in their lives,they feed off hate and self loathing. From 2009 until 2011 they had the presidency,a vast majority in the House and a veto proof senate and STILL were unhappy.

    It was supposed to be a collegial Halloween theme potluck lunch in the workplace today, which instantly devolved into a rabid Trump-bashing session, railing against his insane conservative supporters. Still taking Hillary’s loss badly.

      They also follow CNN and MSNBC for their news, so allowances must be made.

    Network television, lamestream media, Hollywood, the Internet has fundamentally destroyed what our forepersons created and we are destined to be the next great republic to die. Unless!

    I had finally had it with a good looking friend….she was a PITA hore so nagged me all the time about meat (and other people also) and, of course, hated TRUMP. She got on the medal/dog thing and wouldn’t let it go (did I mention how good looking she was and how good She was otherwise?)

    I told her to go away finally. Now all I gotta do is try to get my friends back……libs are born with no brains and no sense of humor….forget about having “fun” (libs, look it up).
