Who tells the whole story about Robin Williams

All of us were saddened to learn about the untimely death of Robin Williams last week. Robin Williams was a great friend of the servicemen of the United States, he gave us one of the things of his that was very valuable, his time. His time to come out to the theater of operations, to made our time there a little less crappy. He had too little time as it turns out. His service to us, in my mind, is a debt, that we as servicemen owe to Robin Williams. And debts must be paid.

During the 2nd World War, many Hollywood stars supported the troops by performing for them, and in many cases fighting alongside them. My own grandfather fought with Jimmy Stewart in the Eight Air Force.There was Gene Autry, and Earnest Borgnine, and Walter Brennan, and many others.Nowadays, there's almost none. Robin Williams was too old to enlist, but his effort is much appreciated, and very unusual for those entitled little bitches that make up the bulk of twenty -first century Hollywood.

Speaking of gerbil-racing media turds, how did the press handle the death of Robin Williams? Here's the New York Times:

"Peering through his camera at Robin Williams in 2012, the cinematographer John Bailey thought he glimpsed something not previously evident in the comedian’s work. They were shooting the independent film “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn,” and Mr. Williams was playing a New York lawyer who, facing death, goes on a rant against the injustice and banality of life.

His performance, Mr. Bailey said Tuesday, was a window into the “Swiftian darkness of Robin’s heart.” The actor, like his character, was raging against the storm.

That defiance gave way on Monday to the personal demons that had long tormented Mr. Williams. With his suicide at age 63, Mr. Williams forever shut the window on a complicated soul that was rarely visible through the cracks of an astonishingly intact career."

Nowhere in this article, does it mention his two divorces, and the women that raked him over the coals for tens of millions of dollars. The fact that he was basically broke, and couldn't pay the back breaking alimony to two ex-wives, was totally ignored. All they mentioned was his substance abuse and depression.

Here's an interesting piece from the L.A. Times called, Report the truth -- the whole truth -- on Robin Williams' death.

"In fact, speaking more broadly, it is not a journalist's job to make the world a better place, to ensure our right thinking, or to defend the virtuous politicians that sophisticates like himself voted for while excoriating the evildoers elected by those country rubes on the other side. It is not his job to do good or be kind or be wise. The idea that any of this is a journalist’s job is a fallacy that seems to have infected the trade in the 1970s, when idealistic highbrows began to replace the Janes and Joes who knew a good story when they heard one.

Because that's the journalist's job: the story. His only job: to tell the whole story straight."

So how does the L.A. Times report the truth, articles about depression and substance addiction, the onset of parkinsons and the like? His divorces and financial problems weren't even mentioned in the cornucopia of articles that the LA Times put out about Williams, that bastion of unbiased, factual reporting. The fact that the L.A. Times is lecturing us on the need for unbiased reporting is laughable at best. But they're getting the worst, the internet is killing off this dinosaur of lost human integrity that is the hard print journalism business, and good riddance to it, I say. The only thing that would be more galling is if the New York Times decided that they also need to run an opinion piece on journalistic integrity.

Was depression an issue in Robin Williams death? Probably. Substance abuse? Probably not in this case. The onset of Parkinsons? Probably also a factor. But the major factor, the main reason? Here's a story from the UK:

"Battling depression and tormented by cash problems, Robin Williams looked a shadow of his former self before he took his own life, a neighbour has revealed.

The tragic comedy legend had told of his misery at having to return to TV at the age of 63 and take on film roles he did not want because two divorces had cost him £20million.

One resident in the quiet community where Robin lived, thought to have been the last neighbour to see him alive, spotted the actor recently and said ­tearfully: “Robin looked terrible. He had lost all his weight and look exceptionally gaunt. It was as though there was nothing behind his eyes, just a shell.”


Robin Williams had 'serious money troubles' after $30 million divorce bills and was 'depressed' his TV show had been axed
A source told how Williams had 'serious money troubles' and was left racked with depression after his CBS show, The Crazy Ones, was axed in May
Just weeks later he went back to rehab for a 'fine-tune' after a decades-long battle with alcohol and drug addiction
His Napa Valley ranch - nicknamed Villa of Smiles - is still on the market for $29.9 million two years after the Oscar winner tried to sell it for $35 million. He said he couldn't afford it anymore
Williams was forced to pay out $30 million in divorce settlements to his two former wives
He told TV executives it was 'nice to have a job where the checks will clear'

Once again, we have to go to the UK, to get the truth about what was going on here in America, the matriarchal US press will suppress the whole story, but we still have the L.A. Times telling us they won't change the story because "that's the journalist's job: the story. His only job: to tell the whole story straight."

Thanks for telling the story straight, U.S. journalists. You're my god damned heroes. Or, you're pieces of dog shit for hiding things that the matriarchy might frown on. The funny thing about the U.K. papers is that they're considered tabloid by U.S. standards, but they're the ones we have to get the facts from, they're the ones with the journalistic integrity. You know what this reminds me of? The Roman emperor Claudius. Considered a limping, deformed, lisping fool, he was crowned emperor as a joke, but he ended up being one of the best ones. His sense of decency and integrity, ended up making him a just and productive ruler, better than all of the corrupt Roman aristocracy around him. Much as Claudius was the butt of jokes, and a deformed man, so the U.K. tabloids have ended up being the only news outlets with journalistic integrity.

They report, you decide.

And, here's a member of the Manosphere, telling it like it is:

I don't agree with him completely, I think his going broke was one factor, probably the main factor, but not the only one.

So, back to our won debt to Robin Williams. The way, I see it, to pay this debt to Robin Williams is to do everything that we can to make sure that many men are spared having to go back to work in their sixties because some blood sucking whore financially raped you. Gentlemen, do not procreate with these women, do not get married, and if you have to do that, get a pre-nup.
