Patterico's Pontifications


That Time BuzzFeed Stood as the Voice of Reason

As a follow-up to Patterico’s earlier post, imagine a world in which BuzzFeed provides much-needed perspective on Big Lazy Media’s latest swoon:

narciso pointed this out in the comments to Patterico’s post, but I wanted to surface it so that we can all collectively marvel that this is happening. Here’s the link to the BuzzFeed article; I wonder if I will ever have occasion to direct us all to that site again.

  1. From the Urban Dictionary:

    Stan – Based on the central character in the Eminem song of the same name, a “stan” is an overzealous maniacal fan for any celebrity or athlete.

    I think in my day we would have accused the media of bobbysoxing Kim Yo Jong.

  2. Thanks they do involuntarily commit random acts of journalism, among their clickbait and car videos

  3. Note the extraneous “u” in “favorite.” I wonder if these authors were Canadian, Australian, British, or some other non-American types. Their author bios have them both based out of New York City, so maybe they are just Anglophiles who like the Brit spelling.

    No, I see that the authors spell “labor” the ‘Merican way later in their post, so my guess is that it’s the BuzzFeed Twitter person who is either a limey or a pretentious Yank.

  4. I’m young enough to remember how they sucked up to Gorbachev. Phil Donohue even took his show to Moscow.

  5. she’s literally the deputy director of the “Propaganda and Agitation Department” for one of the world’s most repressive regimes

    so she’s sort of the nork equivalent of amazon turdlord jeff bezos then

  6. North Korea heads for diplomacy gold medal at Olympics: analysts

    North Korea has emerged as the early favorite to grab one of the Winter Olympics’ most important medals: the diplomatic gold.

    the gaylympics are perverted and sick anymore

  7. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Regardless of how things progress with the Trump Administration, he will be gone less than seven years from now. What kind of media will be left to keep whoever follows him honest? This pathetic clownshow that the MSM has become wouldn’t be up to keeping a county clerk in line–never mind an actual nationally prominent politician with historically typical wiles and focus.

  8. She doesn’t captivate. She literally holds people in captivity.

  9. They come from the land of the ice and snow
    Where teh peeps eat bark and teh fuse won’t blow

  10. The Emigrant Song

    They come from the land of the ice and snow
    Where teh peeps eat bark and teh fuse won’t blow
    The hammer of the state
    They’ll starve their peeps to death
    Oppress their own, bring misery
    Dysentery, it’s coming!
    On they sweep, they’ll eat the trees
    Their only goal will be the DMZ

    And that natural born American commie should have kept it there.
    she’s literally the deputy director of the “Propaganda and Agitation Department”

    And a new position for comrade Ben! becomes obvious since all he does is propagandize and agitate everyone.

  14. I had not known that stan was a word either: to be an overzealous or obsessive fan of a particular celebrity.

    Does she know that her brother committed fratricide?

  15. Does she know that her brother committed fratricide?
    AZ Bob

    My Magic 8-Ball says she not only knows, but helped in her position as deputy director of the Propaganda and Agitation Department.

    Rev.Hoagie (6bbda7)

  16. Yes. I also enriched my urban dictionary. Not only with “stan”, but also with “shade” and “shade queen” which, according to teh internets, are used primarily by gay men.

  17. Not that I’m throwing shade at anyone.

  18. This all ties together, John Kerry did the Sandinista bidding like Harkin and Hart, the later was the white version of Obama, he hired winer who used the unvettes testimony of criminals in his committee inquests, not surprising winer and shearer would be doing much the same 30 years later.

  20. Shade Queen: noun – That dude sitting next to Tara Lipenski talking over the music at the figure skating events. [image]

  21. What narciso said.

    Bang Gunley (5a4596)

  22. Thanks which part though.

    narciso (d1f714)

  23. What’s with Tara Lipinski and broadcasting with the sparkly outfit? Are her and that Weir-do guy going bust out a spontaneous routine? NOW I realize the Hope Hicks attraction, she harkens back to the latter 80s of Katarina With, Princess Stephanie, and the Robert Palmer girls.

    urbanleftbehind (9adb35)

  24. I think this part. {Putting the Jonathan Winer/Cody Shearer to video.}

    For my part.

  25. when asked about his sexuality, Weir responded “…it’s not part of my sport and it’s private. I can sleep with whomever I choose and it doesn’t affect what I’m doing on the ice.”

    Imagine the density it would take to ask.

    “Hey why are you wearing fuzzy chaps with no trowsers, Liberace?”

    papertiger (c8116c)

  26. I can see why Democrats and their media cohorts are fawning all over her. She has power that they want so badly.

    MacGruber (093fb9)

  27. 25… that hair-don’t is marvy. Appeared to be all the other guy could do to not bust out laughing.

  28. The more US and international media attention is lavished on Kim Jong Un’s little sister, the more likely her big brother will feel slighted by comparison and decide his candle would burn brighter if her’s was extinguished.

  29. I suppose the Olympic committee needed a eunoch to squire princess Tara around Korea, given the Nassar situation.

    We know you say you are married Lipinski, but we don’t trust you.

    papertiger (c8116c)

  30. (Steve Stone voice as he is explaining to Harry Caray) she (Lipinski) is what might be called a spinner which is very different from a spinster. (Harry C. with a big grin and guffaw) well she definitely aint related to that congressman Dan Lipinski, but thats the other side of town…(Stone)…your former employer…

    urbanleftbehind (5eecdb)

  31. The best (worst) part is the Buzzfeed comments. Because the USA has the Electoral College and operates Guantanamo, we are exactly the same as N Korea.

    The Left has completely gutted the ability to think for millions of Americans.

    harkin (75fedf)

  32. “Head held high, Kim’s sister returns to North Korea.”
