      As usual, use this for topics unrelated to recent posts. Since the blog has been all Covid, all the time this last week, this is a good place to discuss other issues. The results of the work I do, like this article, are free, but food isn’t, so if you value my work, please DONATE […]

That’s why she was hated. Relentless negative coverage works.

It worked in Ukraine with Yulia Tymoshenko too. She was the Russian test case. Falsely accused of multiple crimes, lots of negative propaganda. Eventually, she was thrown in jail to get her out of the way. She was eventually released and exonerated.

Lock her up indeed.

  1. Hope and despair are contending in the comments at Wonkette.

    Here, slightly modified, is something I said there tonight.

    I do not believe the Republic is dead, or even terminally ill.

    But even if I am mistaken and it dies, the LORD my God will raise it from death, as He raised His Son, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    Yes, entropy is the strongest thing in this universe, but my God is stronger than entropy.


    Sing it, Leonard.

    • Happy Easter, IBW.

      • Thank you, and may the Ascended Madoka, and the One whom I use her as a stand-in for, strengthen your immune system (or is it something else which fights cancer cells?).

        If I could, I’d send you this dude.

  2. Spammy is picky again. 🙄

    • There’s nothing in the spam filter.

      • Yeah, I forgot that the comment system has developed a tendency to delay new posts I make, rather than to reject them entirely.

        Has anyone else encountered this problem?

        • Yes, me too. It concerns me a bit because this is what I saw on NC before WordPress decided to delay my new comments forever (everything I have tried to post there for the last 18 months disappears into the ether – despite Yves’s and Lambert’s assurances that I am not in commentary purgatory).

  3. Seems pretty much the approach of the New York Times.

    Yes, that is why Hillary is always getting “low favorable” numbers. The Right has hated her for 26 years. The Far Left has hated her for much of that, and the Sanders campaign, with Russia’s help, has stoked more of that. The worse thing is that much of the media, for whatever reasons of jealousy, misogyny, clubbishness, have contributed to this. I am trying to think back to any cable news person or journalist who had her back in the 2016 campaign, and I can come up with a very few. The Russians managed to play on the already ingrained irrational distrust and dislike of Hillary. Somehow she still managed to get 67 million or so votes, but if Sanders hadn’t kept attacking her, and if the media hadn’t gleefully read a bunch of red herring emails, she would have gotten another couple of million. It is interesting that Russia liked Sanders, if they could not get Trump.

    • IMO the blame for tRump lies at the feet of the Media and Obama, whose cave to McConnell in not pointing out the Russian tampering sealed the deal.
