Krauthammer Drinks Tony Reali’s Tom-Brady-Lynching Kool Aid

Post by johnkarls »

The Suggested Discussion Outline for our 8/12/2015 meeting has a Reply entitled “The Democratic Party’s Essential Segregation Wing.”

It contains a reference to a posting entitled “Tony Reali (Good Morning America - ESPN) and Lynching Tom Brady” under Participants Comments for our 2/11/2015 meeting on “Losing Our Way: An Intimate Portrait of a Troubled America” with the Tom Brady Lynching illustrating everything that is wrong with the American news media.

The 2/11/2015 posting included the texts of E-mails sent to Tony Reali c/o Good Morning America and c/o ESPN pointing out that with respect to the allegations that Tom Brady and the New England Patriots had deflated their footballs in the penultimate play-off game last January, Tony Reali and his panelists were grossly negligent in failing to consider what happens to a partially-full 2-liter bottle of soda that is put back in the fridge after being out in room temperature for an extended period.

It collapses!!!

Why???

Because the temperature drop reduces the pressure inside the soda bottle!!!

And similarly, a football that is properly inflated INDOORS by the officials 2 hours before kickoff will become deflated by half-time 3.5 hours later of a game being played OUTDOORS AT NIGHT in a cold rainstorm.

But Reali and His Merry Band have continued to defame Tom Brady!!!

Except for Bomani Jones!!!

An African-American who often appears on Reali’s show, who co-hosts another sports show on ESPN, and who hosts his own show on ESPN radio, Bomani Jones never fails to point out that the NFL’s case against Tom Brady is a farce!!!

So what happened next???

The Suggested Discussion Outline for our 8/12/2015 meeting’s Reply entitled “The Democratic Party’s Essential Segregation Wing” records that the National Football League’s Wells Report on the Tom Brady Lynching was released 5/6/2015 as we began studying Prof. Diane Ravitch’s book on The Hoax of the School Privatization Movement for our 6/17/2015 meeting. Our stated reason for studying the Ravitch book was that our pols and the mainstream media are trying to distract us with incidents of alleged police brutality rather than doing anything to mainstream America’s Permanent Under-Caste living in our Inner-Cities.

Accordingly, the Tom Brady Lynching was once more relevant in a posting in the Participant Comments Section for the 6/17/2015 meeting entitled “America’s Apartheid ‘Justice’ System -- Baltimore, American Inner-Cities and Tom Brady.”

THAT POSTING ANALYZED, INTER ALIA, THE NFL’S WELLS REPORT AND ITS EVIDENCE REGARDING THE SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLES DESCRIBED IN THE 2/15/2015 POSTING REGARDING THE EFFECT OF A TEMPERATURE DROP ON THE INTERNAL PRESSURE OF A FOOTBALL.

THE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE DISCLOSED IN THE NFL’S WELLS REPORT DEMONSTRATED THAT TOM BRADY’S PATRIOTS HAD NOT, REPEAT NOT, TAMPERED WITH THE PRESSURE OF ANY FOOTBALLS -- AND, AMAZINGLY, THAT THE OPPOSING TEAM WHICH HAD MADE THE COMPLAINT, HAD IN FACT TAMPERED WITH THE PRESSURE OF THEIR OWN FOOTBALLS!!!

NEVERTHELESS, INCREDIBLY, THE CONCLUSION OF THE WELLS REPORT WAS DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED TO THE SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE THAT IT DISCLOSED!!!

The penalty imposed by the son of former 1968-1971 U.S. Senator Charlie Goodell (R-NY) who serves as NFL Commissioner AND CONFIRMED BY HIM AS THE ARBITER OF HIS OWN DECISION is currently being litigated in U.S. Federal Court for the Southern District of New York.

But Tony Reali and His Merry Band???

They continue to ignore the scientific evidence that the footballs were NOT deflated and pretend that Tom Brady is guilty!!! [Except, of course, for Bomani Jones.]

The only reason why they can probably escape liability for defamation is the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1964 decision in NY Times v. Sullivan that decided that anyone can KNOWINGLY make a false statement about a “public figure” so long as there is no “actual malice.”

Though it would be interesting for Tom Brady to sue ESPN and Tony Reali for defamation because Reali’s studiously ignoring the scientific evidence in The Wells Report and Reali’s studiously ignoring the e-mails he received on 1/23/2015 (copies of which are contained in the 2/11/2015 posting described above) ONLY APPEAR TO HAVE ONE REASONABLE EXPLANATION AND THAT IS “ACTUAL MALICE”!!!

Now comes Charles Krauthammer!!!

By way of background, Yours Truly always reads a wide spectrum of opinion in the print media and watches a wide spectrum of opinion on television -- unlike many politically-oriented people of all stripes who feel it would be a betrayal of their own cause if they took their heads out of the sand to ascertain what others are saying.

In attempting to keep tabs on what everyone is saying, Yours Truly regularly watches Fox News’ Special Report w/Bret Baier.

One of the regular features of Special Report is its so-called “All-Star Panel” which regularly features Charles Krauthammer, a conservative syndicated columnist who is an idol of the political right.

Last evening (Wed Aug 19), Charles Krauthammer made a joke about Tom Brady being guilty in the imbroglio presently before the U.S. District Court in N.Y. to illustrate a political point he was making on another matter.

So is Charles Krauthammer guilty of defamation???

Probably not, because it would be difficult to prove “actual malice” IAW the Supreme Court’s decision in NY Times v. Sullivan.

However, Charles Krauthammer is an avid sports fan, especially when it comes to baseball and he is even reputed to have season tickets for the Washington National’s 81 home games!!!

So it would NOT be surprising to learn that Charles Krauthammer’s enthusiasm for sports extends to the National Football League and its Washington Redskins.

And that, yes, he has extensive knowledge of all things NFL and, as a Washington Redskins fan, does indeed have “actual malice” when it comes to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

But even if Charles Krauthammer is not guilty of defamation???

His repetition of the false information about Tom Brady is still evidence of everything that is wrong with the American news media!!!
