“British TV host Kay Burley of Sky News recently made a fool of herself during an interview with labor leader Mick Lynch as she repeatedly bounced back and forth between insisting she knows what a picket line is and then pretending not to know what a picket line is, all in an effort to wheedle Lynch into advocating violence against strikebreakers. A more obvious – or sillier – example of a TV host demonstrating the mainstream media’s hostility to any possible advancement for working people you would be hard pressed to find.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss Burley’s humiliating performance and apparent misperception that she had “won” the interaction.”

MAGA Rioter’s Lawyer Says Client Couldn’t Comprehend Reality In Desperate Plea…

“The lawyers for an accused Capitol Rioter are trying to beg for leniency by arguing that their client “stood no chance at truly grasping reality” when he stormed the Capitol. They went on to blame the misinformation from the Trump campaign for making their client lose their grip on reality, and while that may be true, it so far hasn’t worked any of the other times this defense has been used. Farron Cousins discusses this.

*This transcript was auto-generated. Please excuse any typos.

A capital rioter who has of course pleaded guilty, uh, to participating in the January 6th riot has had their lawyers go to court and argue that this individual could not understand reality enough to realize how bad it was, what he was doing on January 6th. Now, let me read what the lawyers have filed in court, cuz they’re trying to get leniency again. The guy pleaded guilty. They’re trying to get a little bit of a reduced sentence. And in order to do that, they’re like, yeah guys, basically crazy, right? I mean he’s got no grasp on reality at all. So let him go. Yikes. That almost seems more dangerous. Doesn’t it? So here’s what the lawyers argued in their court filing. When these people failed to correct the narrative, talking about the Trump campaign, it left a huge informational void that was filled with the likes of conspiracy theorists, online extremists and Trump loyalists willing to manipulate public opinion for their own purposes, their client. I’m not gonna name him, stood no chance at truly grasping the gravity or reality of the situation. the court must take into account. The enormous influence the president, the media, and the lack of accurate and truthful information played in the months leading up to January 6th, 2021.

Um, okay. I mean the guy’s facing up to six months in prison, a fine up to $5,000 for one misdemeanor count. So parade inside the capitals, what they got him for. So he’s likely probably not even going to jail to begin with, but you’re gonna tell the judge like, Hey listen, this guy is so dumb that he couldn’t be bothered to look at any non right wing news sources for, for months. Like that’s a horrible argument. I don’t know who these lawyers are, but you’re not good at your job. Let’s let’s be very clear about that. You’re sitting there trying to argue like, well, I mean the misinformation was everywhere. No, it actually wasn’t. It was isolated to a few right wing media outlets and sure. All kinds of online nut jobs. Yeah. They, they were everywhere. But if you’re gonna go to court and say that this guy you’re representing is so stupid, that he can’t determine fiction from reality. Then I think the best thing for him is to get hit with the maximum of six months in jail. Honestly, had you not argued that I’d say, listen, you were walking around inside the capital probation, you know, community service, small find you’re good to go. But now that you’ve done this, honestly, I think you’re proving that this guy is more

Dangerous. Like that’s how bad your argument is. You’re trying to get leniency by saying that your client has no grasp on reality that your client has no ability in their head to decipher what’s real and what’s not online. That’s a terrifying thought, right? That’s not exactly the kind of person that should just be allowed to go free because they don’t understand the consequences of their actions. Nope. Sorry. This person needs to go to jail. I hope the judge hits him with a maximum penalty, maximum fine, maximum everything because these lawyers went to court and made the case that this person is just too stupid to know the difference between right and wrong. Sorry, not gonna cut it. Hope you enjoy jail.”

Jimmy Dore Delivers Fiery Rant On Tucker Carlson…

Date: June 22, 2022

“On Wednesday evening Jimmy made another of his legendary appearances on Tucker Carlson’s show, the most popular cable news program in the country. In a finely targeted rant, Jimmy took aim at Democrats for cravenly trying to blame all of the nation’s woes on Vladimir Putin while also reserving plenty of his ire for both Republicans and Democrats who, he said, serve the interests of the oligarchy that funds them rather than the American citizens who vote for them.

Jimmy and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the benefits of bringing an anti-imperialist, anti-oligarchy message to a Fox News audience that likely never hears such perspectives.”

“During a recent appearance on CNN, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked whether she would support Joe Biden if the President decides to run again in 2024 and her answer was… less than convincing. AOC initially hemmed and hawed but, when pressed by CNN’s Dana Bash, grudgingly seemed to concede that she would endorse the President if he runs for reelection.

Jimmy and his panel of The Dive’s Jackson HInkle and American Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss whether AOC is possibly speaking out of turn or has been given leave by Democratic Party insiders to cut Biden loose.”

Rudy Giuliani Sues Voting Machine Company For Suing Him First…

“Rudy Giuliani has filed a countersuit against Smartmatic, arguing that they owe him legal fees for their defamation lawsuit against him and others. This is actually typical in lawsuits like this, but it is unlikely that Rudy will have any success with his countersuit, mostly because the case hasn’t even gone to trial yet (they are still in the discovery process!) Farron Cousins explains why Giuliani is likely to fail, as usual, in his efforts.

Jimmy and his panel consisting of The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and American comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the maelstrom of accusations, recrimination and distinct lack of collegiality on display in the “clusterfuck” underway at the Post.”
