POTUS begins to make a statement/answer questions from one or more reporters:

The video below is very critical of Biden. As usual, we have a few questions that never seem to come up. These are questions that are more about the federal government than any political party or personality. Our questions appear in bold type.

Why does any presidential administration need a Director of Message Planning?


Sports Culture Tends to be Open and Honest

Reporters are free to ask hard questions and write stories about teams, players, managers and coaches in sports.

Love to see general public policy, foreign policy, etc. reported on by sports writers.

After two frustrating losses, the dam finally breaks in Washington’s 52-3 win over Arkansas State

“Without a doubt, there is work to be done. But after eight quarters of catastrophes, this felt like progress. There needs to be more as Washington enters Pac-12 play.”

Sports writers are OK with being critical of coaches, teams, players, the rule book, the league, referees, team owners, when the season starts and ends, etc.

There’s nothing wrong with this, but what does it have to do with baseball? Why is it being celebrated on opening day at Fenway Park?

There is no place for such brazenly political ceremonies at a baseball game. It’s all emotional manipulation and state propaganda.”


Alternative media is still free to ask questions:
