.@ShakaHislop: it's great to see #ESPNFC acknowledge the #WorldCup, after #ESPN couldn't spend 2.5% of their yearly licensing budget to outbid Murdoch. 2.5%, the cost of a couple of NFL games.
.@drjmahone: a recent #PewInternet study used bogus data (from #Botometer that says, among many other questionable things, JakeTapper is 40% likely to be a bot). The @michaelbarthel study is at least bogus in trying to coerce people to believe the frequently-deceptive MSM.
Cruel irony (I mean the last part): "Harry Kane's late winner gives England 2-1 win over Tunisia at 2018 World Cup | ESPN FC". #WorldCup #ESPN
.@justinsreedy: your name includes "BanTheNazisPlz". Why do you want to do that? I can easily show you wrong and your opinions are entirely generic. Can't you show those who hold extreme positions wrong?
.@MJohnston60: MSM constantly deceives about key issues. E.g., referring to illegal aliens as "immigrants" when that's a contradiction in terms. @asmitch wants people to accept MSM deception as fact. #PewInternet also used bogus data in a past study. I suggest not enabling them
I don't know when "liberals" switched from Question Authority to Don't Question Authority, but I suggest not being sheeple no matter who's in power: #MusicMonday #MAGA #resist #NowPlaying #Pew #PewInternet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSwmW3OxquY
.@InfoMgmtExec: see my recent tweets about Pew studies and continue along those lines to undercut them over their flawed studies.
.@JesseHolcomb: I could post 100s of examples of the MSM deceiving about #immigration: deceptive terminology, ignoring COIs, ignoring downsides, etc. You & @gottfriedjeff want people to trust in deceptive sources, like something out of 1984. #Pew #PewInternet
IOW, it was a gullibility test since the MSM constantly deceives about key issues like #immigration. MT @gottfriedjeff: NEW: Americans with a lot of trust in national news organizations have an easier time separating factual from opinion stories
.@vdignum: a recent #Pew study relied on data from the incredibly flawed #Botometer (e.g., it says JakeTapper is 40% likely to be a bot. Given that, I suggest looking very carefully at @lrainie methodologies. Pew studies are also designed to undercut questioning authority.
.@ciullalipkin @reneehobbs: a recent #PewInternet study relied on bogus data from #Botometer. Have you looked into whether the @lrainie study uses bogus data or not? The goal of #Pew studies is to quash dissent & silence those who question authority. Consider not enabling them.
.@d_ross3: #ESPN spent $8 billion on rights in 2017. For just 2.5% of that, they could've outbid Murdoch for the #WorldCup. For the cost of ~2 NFL games, they could've helped themselves & soccer in the USA. There must be a loose circuit in the brains of ESPN suits.
As I predicted, #England got another goal... #OregonState & their controversial pitcher have avoided elimination in the #CWS... and, Kenley Jansen of the #Dodgers is expected to be out 2 weeks after Farmer John surgery to remove impacted pork products.
"Coulter Warns Trump on Immigration, Border: 'Don't Fall for the Actor Children'". Is any of her advice ever good? She gave Trump plans & arguments that don't work. If she'd given him better arguments he'd oppose amnesty & could undercut Pelosi. #immigration #MAGA
"SPLC Apologizes, Pays Settlement to Islamic Reformer It Wrongly Labeled 'Anti-Muslim Extremist'". #resist
Meanwhile back in Volgograd, England & Tunisia are tied 1-1 at the half (Kane goal + Tunisia penalty kick). England came close just before the half and will probably get 1 or 2 more. Also, if anyone asks, I've paid my TV fees & my postcode is SW1A 1AA. #WorldCup #MAGA #resist
24Ahead closes the broadcast day with this glorious video of Donald Trump personally singing the great Trump National Anthem at the Trump National Football Stadium on Trump National Square! #MusicSunday #MAGA #resist #NowPlaying https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMFIWBQB1kE
Conservatives: 20 million always in search of a personality cult so they don't have to do any thinking. Now it's Trump, in the past it's been one grifter after another: Glenn Beck, Coulter, Teaparty, GWB... #MAGA #resist
From 2010, Why George W Bush should be shunned. Compare this to both "liberals" extolling Laura Bush & "conservatives" defending their new Great Leader. #MAGA #resist http://24ahead.com/why-george-w-bush-should-be-shunned
Plenty of cons were GWB fans like they're now Trump fans. Nowadays the Bush audience isn't cons & they can't even figure that out. MT @phil200269: Laura Bush has insured that the Bush family name will be synonymous with 'traitor' among the conservative community
All we have to do is change the name and translate this and #MAGA would sing it: #MusicSunday #resist #NowPlaying https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oT6QY67CWOE
.@EvolvingJuan: in 2004, GWB pushed a massive H1B program for all types of jobs (they specifically mentioned nurses & teachers). It would have reduced U.S. wages to near world levels. If @KenDilanianNBC didn't hype that at the time, he would have. Be a real liberal.
Trump is close to selecting this as the new anthem of the Trump Youth Pioneers #MAGA Corps, largely due to the syncopation: #MusicSunday #resist #NowPlaying https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_KGAzBFaUI
Somewhat better -> MT @hrtablaze: Laura Bush , did your heart break when your neocon husband sent American children to Iraq, to die in a war that was based on a lie?

.@StacyLStiles: you accuse Laura Bush of wanting a "#OneWorldGovernment". Is that claim better at undercutting her than my recent tweets against her & GWB? If so, explain. Also, in Jan I told you how to stop the Trump/Obama/Soros amnesty. Did you do anything in that regards?
.@RealKellyTrump: in 2004, GWB (George Bush) pushed an un- and anti-American plan that would have lowered U.S. wages to near world levels. It was like an H1B plan but for all types of jobs. What's your opinion of that plan?
.@KathleenFOX5: in 2004, GWB pushed a massive H1B-style program for all types of jobs. It would have reduced U.S. wages to near world levels. The scheme originated at Cato (a #Koch outfit). Did you or @fox5sandiego cover that, yes or no?
.@onedovealone: you RT @beth2_k3 suggesting a "fix" for #immigration; the "fix" she wants would be amnesty. P.S. she also complains about #Twitter censorship, yet she's blocked me - thus helping Twitter - despite never tweeting her. She's bad news.
.@Jill_Gregory @DenimBlueBiz: in 2004, GWB pushed a massive H1B-style program, except for all types of jobs. His rep specifically mentioned teachers & nurses. He wanted to flood the USA with cheap labor. Do you support such plans, yes or no?
In case you're wondering, no, I haven't made #TexasTech my #CWS pick either.
That's not what they were doing. GWB & Obama put on a show to get amnesty. That's just what Trump is doing right now: playing bad cop. #MAGA #resist MT @YuriHiranuma MT @juliehdavis: ...Other pres have cast about for increasingly aggressive deterrents to illegal immigration...
IOW, if the MSM called out Trump on what he is - pro-amnesty - they'd at the same time be exposing how bad they are. They don't want to do that so we have a fiction of Trump being Mr. Anti-Amnesty even though he's almost as bad as Pelosi. #MAGA #resist
Trump knows so few things, but one thing he probably knows is that the MSM is never going to call him for being *pro*-amnesty. He probably knows they need to use him as their bad guy even though he's on their side. They have to help him with #MAGA to protect themselves.
*Everyone* in Trump's inner circle is pro-amnesty. That includes Stephen Miller: he's pro-amnesty too, albeit probably not as strongly as Marc Short & Conway. Trump's been hinting at amnesty since Aug 2015: his first plan was the Flake-Gutierrez amnesty. #MAGA?
FYI, Trump is just playing a WWE role: he's using separations to get amnesty. GWB & Obama did something similar, it's an old trick. #MAGA? MT @WeSupport45 MT @MatthewEnders2: Father's Day lesson for illegals. As a parent, I would never put my child at risk

.@realaxelfoley: my tweet confuses you. Trump has tricked tens of millions of pigeons into thinking Trump Wall is a viable plan. See the Wall posts: http://24ahead.com/s/donald-trump Why didn't you ask Rhoades to list some ways Trump Wall could fail? @AllMyChandler
.@buster_espn: #ESPN could have had the biggest sporting event in the world for just 2.5% of what they spent on rights in 2017. How about urging them to simulcast/show on tape delay some matches? That'd be a win-win for ESPN, Fox, & U.S. soccer.
Highlighting how heavily Twitter censors replies would help with that, so far I've received no help from #DeleteArt13 leaders. Urge them to use my top tweet against Twitter. MT @pedrojmendes Be a hero, help #SaveYourInternet from the #CensorshipMachine
I've been stuck under 300 for years. Part due to Twitter, part because I show both #MAGA & #resist wrong. Do you oppose my shadowban? MT @brorick23 MT @AngelFoxToday71: There was a time you could get 300 followers a day if you tried. Now you are lucky to get a hundred a week.
Some of the con issues are due to or at least taken advantage of by direct mail: everything's a crisis and money must be spent NOW. Dems do that too to their cat lady contingent, but all cons are cat ladies. #MAGA #resist
Aside perhaps from delusions of being Napoleon, there is not an emotional pathology that isn't prevalent among cons: sociopathy, pathological lying, paranoia, solipsism, etc. etc. #MAGA #resist
A con tactic is what I called "Emily Litella Syndrome". I'd say "there are 30 [of something]". A reply would lie: "I can't believe you say there are 3000 [of something]!!!!" in an attempt to fool as many people as they can. That's just how cons roll. #MAGA #resist
My data (start at my top tweet) shows Twitter censors about as many libs as cons. Is that because Jack hates liberals too? MT @birdie1162 MT @sb65: @RealJamesWoods Amazing the censorship at Twitter that goes on under Jack's watch. The hate that he has for conservatives...

.@JessMendoza: the $200 million Murdoch bid to get #WorldCup is just 2.5% of #ESPN's royalties for 2017. They could have had the biggest sporting event in the world for the cost of a couple NFL games. Is there an anonymous suggestion box there at ESPN HQ?
.@AllMyChandler: did you see the @realaxelfoley interview w/ Ben Rhoades? Grade school reporters would have asked tougher questions. Real journalism would be walking a Trump rep through all the ways the Wall would fail miserably. *That* would really have an impact. #NYMag
IN 2009, fake patriot @kelicarender challenged retired Rep Norm Dicks to take a $20 bill from her to pay for someone else's healthcare. Dicks replied like a dim corrupt ho: "I'll take your $20!" If he'd engaged her in debate & showed her wrong he could've stopped #Teaparty.
.@jentaub: U.S. Chamber, WalMart, the #Koch bros, Tyson Foods, etc all want mass #immigration so they can lower wages & bust unions. You know that. You also know @Dahlialithwick & @mjschlanger are helping USChamber, WalMart, the Koch bros, & Tyson Foods harm U.S. workers.
Both #Cubs & #Cardinals have in part looked like girl's softball players in some infield plays.
FIFA has a helpful TV schedule page for the #WorldCup. For those forced to used a VPN to watch it because #ESPN couldn't spend 2.5% of their yearly royalty fees to outbid Murdoch, the FIFA page lets you choose a country. My VPN service covers UK/FR/DE/AU/etc (just not RU).
My data - real data, start at my top tweet - shows Twitter censors about as many libs as cons. If those like you stood with *all* those censored we could stop it. MT @alphafluffy01 MT @Leica0071: [a Jack] I find the censorship [of] conservatives to be uncaring and un-American!
.@poljourno @MumbrellaAsia: FYI, #Twitter heavily censors replies to U.S. govt officials. For instance, about 30% to 60% of the replies to Scott Pruitt are censored. Use the open source app linked from my top tweet to bust Twitter for censoring tweets to Asian officials.

Trump being a useful idiot wouldn't be so bad if he were a useful idiot for most Americans for once. Being a useful idiot for Putin, Kim Jong-un, various other dictators, Big Biz, Pelosi, Schumer, etc. etc. make him the bad kind of useful idiot. #MAGA #resist
Obama pushed amnesty because he's pro-Big Biz & to help the Dems win elections. GWB pushed amnesty because he's pro-Big Biz & has emotional problems. Trump is also pro-Big Biz but the difference is he has zero real thought behind what he does. He's just a persuadable idiot.
What Trump is doing is basically what GWB & Obama did: talk tough on the border to get amnesty, stage inflammatory events to get amnesty, pretend amnesty is the only alternative to get amnesty... What's even worse is that Trump has zero clue about these issues. #MAGA
"Breitbart traffic declines for seventh straight month". Maybe if they stopped calling Trump colluding with Pelosi to push amnesty "patriotic" they'd be doing better. #Breitbart #immigration #MAGA
.@dylanotes: re your epic battle with Joel Pollak, here's how to undercut him to his base. When will you use this against him? http://24ahead.com/joel-pollak-amnesty
.@joelpollak: even Pelosi does want some #immigration laws to be enforced. Many in Dem base want many/most to be enforced; if you were smart & patriotic you'd reach out to them. Most #GOP leaders support loose borders due to their funders. Trump does because he's dim & weak.
Both of his claims are lies. #MAGA #resist MT @joelpollak ...Dems want to solve [separating children from parents] by ending the enforcement of immigration law. Republicans want to solve it by preventing illegal immigration in the first place...
#ESPN could have cut back on NCAA football/basketball & NBA, and still have had more than enough to outbid Murdoch for #WorldCup.
Fox paid $200 million for U.S. #WorldCup 2018 rights. #ESPN pays 10x that for NCAA football/basketball (sometimes several a day), ~10x that on NFL (one game per week AFAIK), and 7x that on NBA. #idiocracy
.@JonChampionJC: I had to use a VPN & get a German IP to watch it on ZDF. All because #ESPN spends so much on NFL they can't outbid someone who bought his U.S. citizenship and instead shows cornhole, spikeball, and CFL.
May 2017, The Atlantic (FWIW): "This year, ESPN will spend more than $8 billion on sports rights—including about $2 billion for men's college football and basketball, $1.9 billion for the NFL, $1.4 billion for the NBA, and $700 for baseball". #idiocracy #WorldCup
.@CapaTosta122 @RealTimBlack: #Ocasio2018 wants to eliminate ICE. So does @AlexNowrasteh. Who does he work for & who funds his group? U.S. Chamber, Tyson Foods, sweatshops, etc. all basically agree with Ocasio. She'd help the wealthy lower wages & bust unions.
To clarify recent media reports: 24Ahead wanted #MississippiState in their last series, but 24Ahead is not going to call this for them. 24Ahead has not yet made a choice in the #CWS.
Meanwhile at the #CWS, a babe in the stands in rocking a rally banana.
The issue I mentioned yesterday about my #Twitter censorship checker's unexpected results for EPA was either operator error (a bad password), a fluke, or an obscure bug I won't bother trying to reproduce. I ran another EPA report & it's as expected (high % of censored replies).
All #MLB teams took a pass on an #Oregon player who pleaded guilty to a horrible crime as a teen. He denies it ever happened. Who knows? What we do know is if he was a football player he'd be president of the #NFL Player's Association by now. #CWS
.@juliareinstein: would you blog "This Video Showing A Plane Crash Is Going Viral"? Does the race really matter in what you did blog? If the (alleged) victim was white, black, brown, red, or purple would that make a difference? #BuzzFeed

.@ScotsFyre: FYI, @salenazito covered up for Kellyanne Conway. SZ listed KC's lobby clients, except for the one that would undercut her to #MAGA: KC got paid by Mark Zuckerberg to deceive about amnesty. Would you support the NYT covering up someone's Soros links?
.@Buccigross: do you think #ESPN ratings might be due to bad decisions by their suits? Eg, cornhole, spikeball, CFL, etc. etc. rather than outbidding Murdoch for the most popular sporting event in the entire world? Jimmy Wichard might do a better job than ESPN suits.
Where am I??? One moment I was watching Croatia vs Nigeria on ZDF because ESPN couldn't outbid Murdoch, now I'm in field somewhere in eastern Germany with a burning desire to invade Poland.
If you search for #WorldCup VPN, you can find listings of furren TV channels streaming some of the games. You need use a VPN service to get a local IP address so you can pretend to be a furriner. I'm watching Croatia v Nigeria on ZDF.

Imagine the most offensive - but non-violent, non-stalkerish-in-the-legal-sense, non-doxing, etc. - thing you can. Go on, imagine that. If you want to silence that, then you support censorship. Opposing censorship is actually very hard to do. #MAGA & #resist don't oppose it.
.@Brenderm: you RT "@gopoundsand1234: It is crazy that an account with 5 followers can cause legitimate accounts to get shut down. Twitter Censorship Sucks" It's blocked me despite never tweeting it. Is there *any* evidence #MAGA actually opposes censorship?

MAGA snowflake @birrdytalk has blocked me after one tweet correctly pointing out that Morrissey would hate those like it: http://24ahead.com/u/birrdytalk

.@AdrianHealey: what sort of mental block kept #ESPN from outbidding Murdoch? I'm picturing a Top 40 programmer-style mental block plus like if Jimmy Wichard was a TV exec. It'd be smart of ESPN to take some matches off Fox' hands or simulcasts: win-win. Why don't you urge that?
As you've heard, I interviewed Chris Simcox several years ago. He was a doltish robot; his pardner was a True Conservative. I.e., a brainless, worthless, dismissive, idiotic, doltish hick. "Ah dones knows bout you reporters!" even though I was asking for instances of media bias.
