You will NEVER guess who is being awarded Press Club’s ‘Truth to Power’ award OH WAIT OF COURSE YOU WILL

It’s actually really easy to guess who the New York Press club decided to honor with their “Truth to Power” Award. They announced the name on Friday night. It’s not a hard mystery to solve, just follow the clues.

For example the award supposedly honors “an individual whose body of work challenges the power establishment and/or defends journalists.”

And you have to look at the mission of the New York Press Club awards overall: “The annual New York Press Club Journalism Awards are a long-standing tradition in New York media, honoring excellence in journalism by writers and reporters who are recognized as being among the best in their fields.”

And the final clue is that media are always, and I mean always, the opposite of whatever they say. So the opposite of those things… well that must be the winner.



And so it is.

Yep. Jim Acosta. The loud-mouthiest non-reporter in America. He makes TMZ look like Carl Bernstein. And Carl Bernstein like Bob Woodward. Everybody goes up a notch.

Has Acosta ever broken news? Have you ever heard him do anything besides make self-serving troped up speeches disguised as questions?

Standing up to power is one thing. Speaking Truth to power requires that you speak a truth on occasion. By my watch, we’re still waiting for a single one from this liberal diva crocodile tears drama king.

What a farce.

For a collection of some of this fraud’s greatest hits, take a gander here.

He’s what we in Texas like to call a jerk. I’m pretty sure y’all say that other places too, but we say also say it in Texas.

Acosta’s fake award ranks way behind Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize

It would be great if Sarah Huckabee Sanders could do Jim Acosta’s introduction for the award with some anecdotes about his professionalism or lack thereof around the White House Press Corps. It would fit right into the spirit of this joke of an award. Has Acosta actually ever broken an original news story of note that wasn’t just him affirming the standard propaganda that CNN is regurgitating at the moment in between his cries of “look at me, look at me?”

I swear, I was never a huge Ayn Rand fan – but holy cow did she have this future pegged.

Don’t deny the conception of greatness. Destroy it from within. The great is the rare, the difficult, the exceptional. Set up standards of achievement open to all, to the least, to the most inept – and you stop the impetus to effort in all men, great or small. You stop all incentive to improvement, to excellence, to perfection. Laugh at Roark and hold Peter Keating as the great architect. You’ve destroyed architecture. Build up Lois Cook and you’ve destroyed literature. Hail Ike and you’ve destroyed the theater. Glorify Lancelot Clokey and you’ve destroyed the press. Don’t set out to raze all shrines – you’ll frighten men. Enshrine mediocrity – and all the shrines are razed.

So, what Jim Acosta pedals is truth? Ha. How about the “loudmouth to power” award? That’s more like it. How about the “a.s.s. to power” award?

I did vote for him twice in the “self aggrandizement” category. Maybe that was under a different subset of assclown. There are so many choices I’ll need to hone up on my circus categories next time.

They are not helping themselves in the eyes of the Americans who are paying attention at all (most apparently do not or we would not have the lawless messes we have today). Who gives a darned what the press does to make themselves feel good about themselves. We sure do not. The press is more hated than are the worthless do-nothing legislators in WADC.

At this point, the only demonrat who stands a chance is Sanders and even his dumbo base is finally seeing what a hypocrite he is with his millions (that he did not have a few years ago). “Write a book and you can be a millionaire too!” he says… As if books make you a millionaire, as opposed to having evil like satan-soros and steyer pay to buy your books isn’t just another way of working around election laws.

Actually, all of the demonrats are advancing such stupid ideas, I think they know they will never beat Trump and have a massive group of candidates to practice for 2024. The only person I think could beat Trump is the most evil of them all, MissHell obama….and THAT scares the hell out of me.
