As is often the case this time of year in the world of television, I’ve shuffled the lineup a bit after Labor Day. I’m doing these posts more frequently and in the afternoon or early evening. Hoping the changes are improving the quality of the blog somehow.
The breaking news this moment is the revelation in the New York Times that there is a saboteur in the White House working against the Presidency – which they (the NYT) are aware of because the anonymous person has inscribed an op-ed piece. Even if you believe the media is fake news, this is big news – because there are only two outcomes here that can be true.
The first possible result is that what the New York Times is saying is true – that the Trump White House indeed has a saboteur, which would seem to me to be an act of gross misconduct. Is it criminal misconduct? I think that depends on the job title that saboteur has.
Secondly, the media is flat-out fabricating for whatever mind-boggling reasons they would have in doing so – and that’s a distinct possibility as well. They’ve printed a lot of things about this president that have wound up being inaccurate with time.
Either way, this is VERY serious and troubling – and it should be pointed out here that either one outcome or the other has to be true. Either it is true there is sabotage at the White House or that the media is lying about it.
Needless to say, stay tuned.
