Hello Dog Days

Remember how the media chortled when George W. Bush invented a new word – ‘mis-misinformation’? Little did they know that it would one day become the coin of the realm.

During an interview with CNN this week, White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield admitted the Biden administration's censorship efforts are specifically targeting conservative news sites for publishing "misinformation."

"You've heard the president speak very aggressively about this. He understands this is an important piece of the ecosystem but its also the other thing, the president has pointed out and spoke to when he was asked about this yesterday, it is also the responsibility of the people creating the content and again I would go back to, there are conservative news outlets who are creating irresponsible content that's sharing misinformation about the virus," Bedingfield said. - Townhall

My initial reaction to Ms. Bedingfield’s comment was “isn’t there anybody in the White House who can utter a coherent sentence?” All the professional communicators, from Big Guy himself, to the Big White spokesmouth, Psaki and now the Big White Communications Director Bedingfield (an unfortunate name, you must admit) babble like a brook running downhill. Working from a meme-of-the-month (July’s being “misinformation”) helps them all stay on point. They’ve done so well this month they earned a wink and a nod from a master:

Well done, Big White figurehead and staff! You’ve reached expert status.


Might I suggest a day at the beach to decompress and dispel any further end-of-the-world misinformation?

Enjoy the dog days while you can, people!
