There’s a new “controversy” going on, this time surrounding the Houston Astros. It’s another lesson in the media these days — that all of these “journalists” or “reporters” or whatever you want to call them are actually blood-sucking parasites trying to get under the skin of successful people and tear them down.
The backstory is one of the Houston Astros’ relief pitchers has an accusation of domestic abuse. I’m not looking into the story and that’s irrelevant to the situation here.
The story is that three “reporters” — all women — went in and wore charity bracelets to “raise awareness” and flaunted them, asking questions about domestic abuse and trying to harass the staff and this pitcher during a time where they’re all stressed, trying their hardest for victory, in an effort to distract them and tear them down.
An Astros executive of course is annoyed with them, because his team has a job to do and these “reporters” trying to force a story where there isn’t one, and make themselves a part of the news by creating drama, are detracting from their jobs.
Now apparently everyone’s “outraged” because after Osuna gave up a 2-run homer, but the Astros won anyway, and these reporters tried to shake Osuna’s confidence more in a time that he needed his team to rally around him for the next round, the executive allegedly said within earshot: “Thank God we got Osuna! I’m so fucking glad we got Osuna!”
He wasn’t bragging reporters, it was in the clubhouse after they WON THE PENANT, and all were celebrating. And the reporters wanted to take away form that situation and force some fake news.
The fake news is he went on “a profanity laden rant” to create a picture that he hounded these reporters, harassed them, etc. When he was trying to get them to go away and ignore them while they were harassing his player, is the truth of the matter.
All of the media picked it up, the commissioner of baseball says he’s “disappointed” — which is a pointless corporate speak platitude meaning no action will be taken because this is pointless, but the media did everything they could to try to get this executive fired and the pitcher along with him.
That was their intention the whole time, it’s clear, and it’s disgusting.
This is what they do. They bait. They brand the topic. They lie. Every time.
The good news is, this executive knows better than to apologize. He has written off the whole story and called it for the nonsense it is.
It’s the only way to handle these media types. They are evil. If I were the Astros, I would revoke their press passes and never let them in the clubhouse again. Why would they want that going on when they have a world series to play?
The fake news tried to destroy me on several occasions in science fiction and comics. I give them birds like I’m Oprah handing out cars. That’s the only way to handle them. Support people who aren’t going to back down to fake news intimidation. Read my new book The Iron Wedding today.
