The Buck Stops Somewhere Else  気がつけば世界最劣等国、最劣等メディア [Tragedy]

NYT op-edに掲載された読者投稿。政治屋どもが責任を取らぬのは日米共通。都合の悪いことは外国(とりわけ隣国)、前政権(民主党政権)、メディアのせいにするのは現在のオバカ首相の常套手段。日本国民を犠牲にして宗主国=米国に尽くし続ける自民政権。しかも、このことを知っていて一言も論評しない日本メディア(if any)。メディアのない北朝鮮なみ。泣けるわい。


A reader says President Trump takes credit only for good things, not bad ones.

Aug. 12, 2018


To the Editor:

I guarantee that when the inevitable economic downturn comes, President Trump will refuse to own it. He takes credit only for good things, even if he has nothing to do with them. He would claim credit for the sun rising each morning if he could.

Mr. Trump will undoubtedly blame someone else: the Federal Reserve, the Chinese, the North Koreans, the European Union, the Democrats, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer. On second thought, maybe even the Russians. But not Donald Trump.

He must have a plaque on his desk: “The buck stops somewhere else. Anywhere else but here.”

Boston paper presses coordinated response to Trump's media criticisms

A Boston newspaper is calling for publications nationwide to take a coordinated editorial stand against President Trump's attacks on the media.

"We are not the enemy of the people," The Associated Press quoted Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe, as saying. AP said she was referring to a characterization of journalists that Trump has used in the past.

The president, who regularly declares that his administration is getting unfair media coverage, has made frequent speeches and tweets decrying "fake news" and fabricated sources. After his recent summit in Singapore with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, he assailed fake news as "our country's biggest enemy." 



The Boston Globe’s editorial page is proposing a coordinated editorial response from publications across the United States to President Trump’s frequent attacks on the news media.

‘‘We are not the enemy of the people,’’ said Marjorie Pritchard, a deputy managing editor of the Globe, referring to a characterization of journalists that Trump has used in the past. The president, who contends he has largely been covered unfairly by the press, also employs the term ‘‘fake news’’ often when describing the media.

The Globe has reached out to editorial boards nationwide to write and publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what the newspaper called a ‘‘dirty war against the free press.’’
