If MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was co-conspirator in criminal activity how do you think media would cover that?
It would lead New York Times for a f*cking month.
So here we are: Incontrovertible evidence Fixed Noise’s primetime goon was CHINS-DEEP in 6 Jan planning and “strategery.”
The Committee is seeking information from Sean Hannity.
Chair @BennieGThompson and Vice Chair @RepLizCheney request Hannity answer questions about matters including communications between Hannity and the former President, Mark Meadows, and others in the days surrounding Jan 6th. pic.twitter.com/wXtOGSsneg

Loyal CrankyYank readers know where I stand: Fixed Noise—an inexplicably going concern—celebrates traitors, fictionalizes history and destabilizes America. Period. If there’s a FNC mission statement, that’s it.
Recent kerfuffle “Text Gate” proved Hannity wasn’t the only one getting in on the game. That is to say, many Fixed Noise A holes were chiming in as nice helpers to the fascist regime. Ingraham. Some morning-show A hole.
I want to see Rupert Murdochs comms during that period, too, because my Spidey Sense says they will contain hysterical “stand down” directives much like what we’ve seen from his anchor-goons.

Will Pollock is a perpetually cranky New York City escapee based in Midtown Atlanta. He’s a freelance multimedia journalist, media analyst and author of two books (award-winning Pizza for Good & Leaving Triscuit), with more on the way.
In 2001, Will earned his Masters from The Medill School of Journalism, graduating with highest honors from the magazine sequence. As permanent member of Journalism’s National Honors Society, he’s been active in monitoring, writing and blogging about media and journalism ever since he graduated.
Obsessed with good storytelling and journalistic excellence, Will uses snark, humor and reason to distill dumb shit and make it fun. He’s a seeker/maker of non-consensus news, and helps you cure crankies by finding the nut in every story.
As for-profit media continues to fail us, it’s more important than ever to find reliable sources. Authentic storytelling exists—you just have to look for it. On this blog you’ll get ideas, not ideology. Sass with class. Reporting with rapport. Evidence with a touch of evil. You get the idea.
Support independent authors, writers, artists, journalists and professionals. Buy a book, leave a review, start a discussion. Show solidarity so that we can achieve greater balance and, in the end, learn more.
