    β€œBriefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backwardβ€”reversing cause and effect. I call these the “wet streets cause rain” stories. Paper’s full of them.

    In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.

    That is the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect. I’d point out it does not operate in other arenas of life. In ordinary life, if somebody consistently exaggerates or lies to you, you soon discount everything they say. In court, there is the legal doctrine of falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus, which means untruthful in one part, untruthful in all.

    But when it comes to the media, we believe against evidence that it is probably worth our time to read other parts of the paper. When, in fact, it almost certainly isn’t. The only possible explanation for our behavior is amnesia.”

    ― Michael Crichton

    I didn’t know it had a name, but I certainly recognize the phenomenon.

    Jeffrey Varasano: ALL leftist ‘outrage’ is phony. ALL of it. These are the people that give you Piss Christ, that give Grammy Nominations to songs with the F word in the title, who parade naked fat old men in front of little girls at Pride Parades, who chant “What’s better than 12 dead cops? 13 dead cops”.
    NONE of the outrage over Trump is real. NONE of it. ANYONE rolling back Cultural Marxism is going to get this treatment, no matter how mild mannered, or reasoned. Scott Walker was Hitler. We are all Hitler.
    Fight. Trump is a fighter. He’s what we need. No one else gives us any legit chance. NO ONE. Think of a name. You can’t. There is no one on the scene. It’s Trump or the Left wins and Western Civilization is done. We are lucky to have him.

  13. CNN says: “The President has never advocated violence against the Media.”

    THE WHITE HOUSE
    WASHINGTON
    Dec. 6, 1950
    Mr. Hume:
    I’ve just read your lousy review of Margaret’s concert. I’ve come to the conclusion that you are an “eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay.”
    It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.
    Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you’ll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!
    Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you’ll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.
    H.S.T.

    Heh. Well-said, Mr. Truman.

    Seems to be a nationwide police practice to take credit for a suspect turning himself in. Watching national news where the police are saying they ‘found’ the Pennsylvania road rage shooter who shot the young woman. Yeah, just like the NOPD chief who said they caught the first guy who was involved in that Quarter beating assault, they found them at their front desks where they turned themselves in accompanied by lawyers.
    Looks like a pattern, police stumped by high profile crimes, try to take credit for solving them when the perp actually just turns himself in.

    NBC news boo-Hoo-hooping about Trump’s budget cuts, meaning the BLM msy have to do away with some wild horses that are over-grazing western lands. As they said, the BLM land can reasonably support 24,000 horses but have three times thst amount now. BLM also has thousands in huge corrals they just feed and try to adopt out.

    The wild horse problem out west was a big issue 50 years ago when I lived out west and the BLM’s oversight has done nothing but make it worse, now they want more. News ended the piece by saying the horses have to be saved as one of the last symbols of the free and wild American west. Oh yeah, how about the western farmers and ranchers, BLM gives wild horses better treatment than they do productive range users.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

    Certain trepidation accompanied reading today’s General Discussion after reading the beginning of the comments. Salt on watermelons, guys, salt, and lots of it. Everything else is just noise.

    Anyway, thankfully things picked up. Tucker is a gem, Stella, you/he are so blessed, and he is gorgeous (to match his owner no doubt).

    Has anyone noticed that Stella’s followers, only recently at 124, have increased to 256? The Tucker Effect, no doubt.

    A small contribution. Hopefully, the Obama communists/OFA/media will not read this, as this guy lays Our POTUS’ method out bare-nekkid.
    Remember, those such as I had no idea anything about DJT, having never followed this type stuff. Yet even I could recognize the operation within a very short time, which only reinforces the truth that we are surrounded by willfully blind ppl.

    Owning The News in 140 Characters

    “They (POTUS tweets) have been 100% strategic, deliberate, and focused, designed to provide the fake news media with a topic of conversation for a news cycleβ€”or often two or threeβ€”while the administration methodically dismantles Barack Obama’s regulative state and erases his very existence from the historical record.”

    “…the nature of the tweets, or the topic, is completely irrelevant and in some cases non-existent (β€œcovfefe”). The point is never, ever the topic of the tweet. The point is the reaction it will provoke from the fake news media that will absorb the news cycle and entirely distract from real policies.”

    Why other ppl do not see this is beyond one’s abilty to understand.

    Why is it i who always breaks the blessed silence and peace after Prayers???
    If we do not see you, pls enjoy ur 4th. Hope it is a barnburner. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

      Have no fear of that these people are blinded by their own lies they are still waiting for us stupid Americans to catch up to their enlightened thinking. President Trump could lay it out before them himself in plain English and they would still not believe or understand what is happening because they are incapable of accepting any world view other than their own.

      They are exhibiting pathological persistence in their headlong plunge off the cliff.

    I shudder to bring this up in a thread that began with watermen posts but the Essence Festival is in NOLA and we’ve had a particularly violent few days. I may be the only one who’s noticed but the local news has been broadcasting the car jacking some, murders, shootings, etc, without pictures of any perps or suspects, they’ve also not broadcast the police descriptions of the perps. From the areas of the city most have occurred in the presumption is…well…ummm…the perps are probably Usual Suspects. Locals get the idea and while it helps feed the denial of the cultural ostriches one wonders if there may be some other reason we’re not getting the police data.
