CLA Radio 08/26/16: The States

CLAR181-States

The next ConservativeLA Radio show will be about these United States; that is, 50 songs for 50 states, Obama Math notwithstanding.

Why, you ask? To show @talkradio200 that it can be done right. Long story.😉

All songs (one item is a comedy bit instead of a song) have a state name in the title, except for one. See if you can guess, without cheating, why the state of Washington is represented by The Kingsmen–other than the fact that there aren’t many decent songs about Washington state, for some reason.

When: Friday, August 26, 2016, 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern.

Where: Duane FM in the Hughniverse.

Why Are Headline Writers Always Wrong?

Why Are Headline Writers Always Wrong?
The answer won’t surprise you in the least.

Bill Walsh, a copy editor at the Washington Post, once remarked that “Writing headlines is a specialty — there are outstanding writers who will tell you they couldn’t write a headline to save their lives.”

Given the rise of online news headlines that appear to have been written by interns wholly unfamiliar with the content of the articles their headlines purport to describe, such specialists must be a dying breed — all the more so if otherwise outstanding writers are sacrificing themselves in the effort.

I kid.

But what is a headline? Is it merely a way of fooling potential readers into thinking there might be nudity (ideally, a naked Kardashian) somewhere in the article?

The presence of breasts focuses the mind, as a wise man once said.

Wait, that was me. Never mind.

Wikipedia, which is never wrong (see also, “sarcasm”), defines a headline as “text indicating the nature of the article below it.”

Compact and descriptive. I like it.

Merriam-Webster, on the other hand, mutters something about “the title written in large letters over a story in a newspaper,” a rather archly narrow definition as to venue (what about magazines, websites, and the like?), but open-ended as to function (the function of a headline being, presumably, to give the reader an accurate sense of the article’s subject matter).

I’ll leave it to others to explore the wonderful world of what Derek Thompson at The Atlantic calls “headline tropes that multiply like viruses across the News Feed of your life.”

I’m looking at you, Vox.

No, what galls me are news headlines (or Twitter teases) that directly contradict news content — albeit in ways ranging from subtle, to so painfully obvious that they might be largely responsible for the much-discussed opioid epidemic.

Earlier this month, Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) gave his Trumpkinist challenger, Paul Nehlen, a world-class ass-thumping, winning “80 percent of the vote with nearly 90 percent of the district’s precincts reporting,” Robert Costa wrote at the time.

The initial headline? “Paul Ryan weathers his primary but GOP’s populist storm still rages,” which can be seen in the article’s URL, although the headline itself was later changed to “Paul Ryan easily wins his primary, but GOP’s populist storm still rages.”

Winning over 80% of the primary vote in ones Congressional district is hardly “weathering” a “storm,” is it?

Why the hyperbole? Media outlets thrive in part on conflict (in addition to breasts), so “Paul Ryan barely notices human speed bump Paul Nehlen” might not optimize ones clicky metrics and suchlike.

Then again, maybe this has something to do with the rise of dumb headlines: “Scientists determine how much pot is in a joint. Here’s what they learned.”

I think the headline writer probably meant to say how much THC, but perhaps thought the acronym for marijuana’s primary psychoactive ingredient a bit too jargony, and ended up with an exceedingly silly construction instead.

And then there’s raging understatement: “Orlando Highlights Islam’s Complicated Relationship With Homosexuality.”

I bet it does.

But I shouldn’t complain about inaccurate, misleading, or overblown headlines. Things could be worse: “When a newspaper apologizes for publishing an accurate headline.”

The nail which sticks up gets a good pounding.

I would be remiss if I failed to acknowledge all the headline writers out there who are masters of their craft: “Fans bewildered by lack of country music at CMT Awards.”

Well done. Well done, indeed.

Finally, there are the unintentionally hilarious headlines. For example: “Prince’s death raises numerous questions about his health,” which was so wonderful they changed the URL altogether.

And yes, in case you were wondering, the headline of this article was misleading. Anyone need a headline writer?

Call me.

Trump’s Russian Connections: A List

TrumpFightsAviAs if determined to again prove what a deeply un-serious people we are, the news is dominated by stories about Trump’s email joke.

Yes, it was a joke. I loathe Donald Trump, but were I to compile a list of reasons for my loathing, making piss-poor, un-Presidential jokes about Hillary Clinton would rank near the bottom.

Also, we begin bombing in five minutes.

One side effect of the perverse fixation on that relatively trivial joke is that Trump’s actual Russian connections, which are disturbing in the extreme, are lumped in with the joke and dismissed as one thing, similar to the effect that Ron Paul or Alex Jones have regarding any topic they touch. (And speaking of Ron Paul, he’s up to his wazoo in Russian connections, too.)

Hyperventilating accusations that Trump is a Russian agent likewise distract from the already alarming reality–it’s bad enough that Trump’s views largely align with Putin’s without engaging in tinfoil conspiracies.

And so, I thought it might be useful to create a list of a few articles that dive into the very serious topic of Trump’s actual connections with Russia in general, and with Team Putin in particular. There will necessarily be some overlap and redundancy in the material, but hopefully this post will make it just a bit more difficult for some people to argue from ignorance on the topic.

  1. Here’s what we know about Donald Trump and his ties to Russia (The Washington Post, 7/29/16). A serviceable, fairly brief overview.
  2. Putin’s Puppet (Slate, 7/21/16). Lots of background detail and links, particularly on Trump’s interesting investor and banking relationships.
  3. Trump picked stock fraud felon as senior adviser (AP, 12/4/15). Included here because Felix Sater is a bridge between Trump’s Russian connections, and his organized crime connections; the latter is an extremely important topic in itself.
  4. Trump & Putin. Yes, It’s Really a Thing (Talking Points Memo, 7/23/16). Yes, I know, another Leftist site, but the piece contains more detail on Trump’s banking/investment activities, etc.
  5. And, finally, Inside Trump’s financial ties to Russia and his unusual flattery of Vladimir Putin (The Washington Post, 6/17/16), which is referenced in the first Washington Post article above.

Again, to be perfectly clear, allegations that Trump is a Russian agent, or that he violated the Logan Act by sarcastically joking about Hillary’s emails, are total horseshit, completely besides the point, and are convenient excuses for Trump/Putin apologists to dismiss Trump’s actual connections with Putinist Russia.

Don’t take the bait.
