It's time for the true muck rakers to do the job the lamestream has proven they no longer can do.

Wow! It is about time the press was told they are not doing their job.

I don't find derogant in the dictionary
In reply to lylejk, Dec 11, 2013

What sort of word is that? Having taken Latin I understand the meaning, but it's not an English word.

And 4 good men died. That's some serious mismanagement...that Benghazi scandal and coverup. Very shameful. The media is mostly A.W.O.L.

Thanks for backing me up; was right in the first place then.   lol

I did an internet search first but did not do a dictionary search.   When I looked at the term in the dictionary I usually use, it did not find this word so thought it was wrong.   Now I wonder why this word is in some dictionaries and not in others.   lol

derogant
In reply to lylejk, Dec 11, 2013

I nominate derogant as the first new word created by the Off Topic forum. We'll have to figure out what it means.

Maybe it means "arrogant but wrong."

"Another derogant post from [insert name of favorite whacko here]"

Oops….it's in the Oxford English Dictionary!
In reply to kixigvaq, Dec 11, 2013

Here's the entry:

† ˈderogant, a. Obs.

[ad. L. dērogānt-em, pr. pple. of dērogāre to derogate.]

Derogating, derogatory.

c 1620 T. Adams Wks. (1861–2) I. 12 (D.) The other is both arrogant in man, and derogant to God.

Again, I didn't find it in my online dictionary of choice either but Ozark bailed me on this one and I'm appreciative.    lol

The word I should have used (but brain pulled the one that I did; lol) was shared by snow4ever.

You were very lucky to pick a word which actually exists.
If you had typed your phrase in plain English, of the vernacular type, what would you have written ?
Most people on this board will agree with me that the term used does not fit in your limited vocabulary.
In other words, what is the real subject ?

and the media's derelict treatment of it. That's the subject. Don't worry about certain words. Now let's get back on topic.

Are you also from Alabamistan and can you speak for lylejk ?

What do you expect from your press besides front page titles ? Anything at all ? I don't.

The leftest always deflect; wasn't expecting anything less from them.   Just hope a few reasonable folk would actually put a torch under the leftest press and get them back to muck raking.

Don't worry about the spelling Lylejk. Dem Yankees leave of the "r" in many of their words when speaking, but let us southern boys leave off a letter or two in our writing and we have created a big sin.

I know of what I speak, I am a damnyankee from Massachusetts living in Georgia.

The media is a reflection of the people who fund it
In reply to lylejk, Dec 11, 2013

They publish whatever keeps them in business... within limitations. Don't blame the media, blame the people who are funding the media, because they are really calling the shots.

So if you look at today's media: splintering off into 'news sources' with a distinct political bias, chocked full of sleazy bimbos like Kardashian and Cyrus, all while doing their utmost to turn a molehill into a mountain, what does that say about us?

Nothing complimentary.
