I have a friend at work, that says the following. "If the news is not in the newspaper, or the Main news channels, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC. Then it didn't happen!
I would just pity him for his narrow mindedness.
Get a new friend. If he is that stupid, you are wasting time and energy trying to convince him otherwise.
The MSM still has a disproportionate say in setting the context for any issue. Although things are slowly changing.
Wisdom and Discernment value these highest among your friends and they will be a blessing to you. Your friend has neither and it is too late for him to gain either.
Ask him if Clinton slept with Lewinski....
That story broke in the Nat’l Enquirer and on Drudge
Your friend is mentally handicapped/retarded.Sorry to break the news to you about your bud and you may also be so if you believe him.
No doubt his birth was not reported in the MSM, ergo he does not exist. You can just ignore him.
“The truth will out.” - Wm Shakespeare
Merchant of Venice, Act 2 Scene 2
“If the news is not in the newspaper, or the Main news channels, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC. Then it didn’t happen!
Too much of the public your friend is correct....
You sure don’t post much do you?
“The truth will out. - Wm Shakespeare”
Yes, but the lies can cause many, many problems in the meantime, and may alter the course of history.
Remind him where a blue dress connected with a sitting President started from.
If K-K-Katie Colon said that “two plus two equals five” and held up five talons, he would try to convince you of the `fact.’
Your friend is what Orwell would call an orthodox “good thinker”—a liberal male ewe who laps up lefty cant. He is the backbone of the modern Democratic party.
But he’s no worse than some here.
Illustrate absurdity by being absurd.
My favorite one was when Rush was reading from the NYT about what a peaceful death Terry Schiavo was having, because being starved almost led to “euphoria”. He then built, using that premise, a logical argument on how we are destroying Africa by giving them aid, and thereby preventing their “euphoria” from starvation.
Of course it was crazy, but it was a classic Rush treatment. So find an issue that has been ignored by the MSM that your friend believes in and build an illogical case.
I've done it, I guarantee if you do it will you will make this guy berserk.
I've done it, it makes libs nuts.
Inform him that his birth was not announced in the MSM, therefore he doesn't exist!
Point him to stories NOT being covered. Like voter intimidation by the Black Panthers. Or the Union thug who beat up the Black Tea Party fellow.
He also has said, “Clinton was NOT impeached”!
I said, he was. But was acquitted!
Yea, he is a person that has blinders on.
Bill Clinton, President of the United States, was impeached by the House of Representatives on December 19, 1998, and acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999. The charges, perjury, obstruction of justice, and malfeasance in office, arose from the Monica Lewinsky scandal and the Paula Jones lawsuit. The trial proceedings were largely partisan, with no Democratic Senators voting for conviction and only five Democratic Representatives voting to impeach. In all, 55 senators voted not guilty, and 45 voted guilty on the perjury charge. The Senate also acquitted on the charge of obstruction, with 50 votes cast as not guilty, and 50 votes as guilty. It was only the second impeachment of a President in American history, following the impeachment of Andrew Johnson in 1868.
I brought this into work last month! He said that Wikipedia is wrong. Also, he doesn’t look at ANY internet news and totally ignores any news that is on the NET! What a loser he is!
Guess I will just ignore what he says, from now on! Just sad! People like him, is why we are in trouble today!
Thanks for everyone’s input!
Be more selective...
... I have a friend at work, that says the following. “If the news is not in the newspaper, or the Main news channels, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC. Then it didn’t happen! ....
Take him to the nearest detox center in your area then ignore him completely, since he is unable to process events logically, and must rely on someone to draw conclusions for his self. He is perfect Primal Slave material, waiting to be molded by the slave master hands into a useful slave.
PS: Can he read?
Your argument never happened. It wasn’t in the main stream news.
I have to work with him just about every day! Sigh!
The viewership of those channels you listed has been in a death spiral. I guess at some point in the not too distant future, 90% or more won’t know anything about the news because they don’t watch those channels.
Your friend should apply for the newly open position with the USDA in Georgia since he might meet the intelligence requirement.
Ding, ding ding!
And we now have winner and a Freeper who is in the running for the most succinct, hilarious, post of the month--if not the year!
Thanks for the eye watering, belly laugh as I needed it!
Just glad I didn't have a mouthful of whatever, or I would be cleaning my keyboard and monitor for the next hour!
What’s with having friends who are liberals?
I refuse to consult journalists who say, "there is no truth."
It’s hard. As soon as they find out you haven’t drank the Kool Aid, its like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the pointing and screaming. Liberals are filled with hatred, completely channeled towards conservatives. Sad.
Blue dress stain Drudge Report
CBS fraud letter regarding Bush military service, FR and pajama reporter
So many thing about the US hhave been reported in England and other countries but not the US media, I lost track
Feed him a daily dose of “News That Didn’t Happen Today”
Inform him that his own reality, and that of his family and property, are subject to the same rule. Inform him that you are seeking professioanl help so that you will no longer sense the presence of unreported (and therefore non-existent) people, and that until you are cured, you will just have to ignore him— unless he can prove his existence with a report on it from a qualified news source.
Find another friend. Go back to the German people in 1932. They were like your friend.
Keep your ears open for things he says that aren't in the news. Quickly pop off "That never happened!" A couple of weeks of that should have him treating you with a little more respect.
So your co-worker is an idiot. You really can’t fix stupid.
