OTHER THINGS TO REMEMBER:
• stanley lied about being banned in nj (there was no x on the map)
• shermie is in his 40s, which isn’t exactly prime grandpa age
• this continues to prove that the kids don’t know anything about their father’s family because the existence of stanley pines was a surprise
• if anyone left this episode believing stanley, then CONGRATS you’re trusting a professional liar ;) remember that this is only the first of stan’s mistakes from his past coming to light :)))
Mixed martial arts – once a disorganized, unregulated Fight Club that sold itself as (i.e. lied about) being “banned in 49 states” – is now big, big business. The UFC alone is worth anywhere from one to three billion dollars, and secondary markets like Invicta FC and Bellator also do very well for themselves. But unlike juggernauts like baseball and football, MMA has been a public darling for barely a decade. As such, many people don’t know a damned thing about it. That’s why we spoke with Dallas Mann and Terrence Chan, two MMA fighters who have learned some very interesting things about the world’s latest head-punching craze.
It is almost impossible to join the mainstream media without getting a BA in journalism. One might think that this is done to ensure that the “cub report” has learned the basic technical skills needed for the job. It’s not. It is to ensure that the new kids have been indoctrinated into the correct mindset. that they think right.
Objective reporting seems to be passe. Now, the kids are given a lot of ideas about “social responsibility” and other buzzwords that sound awfully close to thought control in a do-good disguise. The indications are the current crop of reporters are being taught not to tell us what happened, but how to think and feel about it, and how to put the event in a context of right and wrong. Inclinations, feelings, not facts. The distortion of reality if doesn’t fit the program. White lies. Gentle lies, and in some guises with “hated” personalities, vicious lies.
