MEDIA STUDY: MSM HATE TRUMP




May 1, 2017 Fox News: @TuckerCarlson talks to @JeffMason1 and @JoeConchaTV

A debate with WHCA president Jeff Mason tells us what's wrong with the media and the general attitude of journalists. Media studies have documented heavy negativity by network news outlets against Trump. But Mason insists he's a neutral observer. The problem with people without moral standard is that they're incapable of critical introspection and holding themselves accountable to that standard. This mess is not happening in a vacuum. It comes from the basic fundamentals of how we view the world. Watch the first half of Tucker Carlson last night.

TRUMP TROLLS THE MEDIA ELITE IN MEGA RALLY


By skipping the annual White House Correspondence Dinner and instead attending a rally of his own (watch here), President Trump had the media in the defensive denying they are fake news while everyone knows who they are. Whenever they feel attacked the media fall back stressing their important role in free, civil society. The problem is they refuse to acknowledge that they are no longer fulfilling that role. Instead they have become the opposition. More properly, they have become the enemy of the People. On Saturday the media were obliged to show both events in split screen, the one an animated love fest, the other a boring, vacious, pompous gathering of the stuffed shirt elite. It was another master stroke by the Negotiator in Chief. The Hollywood A-listers also failed to show up. The piece the resistance of the evening was Comedy Central's Hasan Minhaj, oblivious of irony when he accused President Trump of "not caring" about free speech. If he didn't, he would probably not even be there! The Trump administration is probably the most open and transparent Government in decades! Michelle Malkin explains what the WHCD actually is. And then there was the Real News Dinner Dance!

RACHEL MADDOW'S HOLY GRAIL FALLS FLAT


Twitter exploded last night after a tweet from MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, hyping she had gotten her hands on the liberal holy grail, President Donald Trump's tax returns.
But, according to many who watched, the report did not deliver the bombshell most were expecting. Maddow reported on two pages of Trump's 2005 return, showing that he made $153 million in 2005 and paid $36.5 million in income taxes ($38 million in total taxes). The reactions were brutal. But the dogmatic Left do not see it as proof of fallacy. On the contrary! They see it as an incentive to double down on their "investigative journalism".

FAKE NEWS MEDIA DUMP "TRUMP WIRETAPPED" MEME


Miraculously, after President Trump tweeted last Saturday that Obama has been wiretapping him, the meme that "Trump colluded with Russian hackers to defeat Hillary" and "Trump accuses dear leader of wiretapping him", have all but dried up (for now). The Trumpster's tweets can be highly effective. The NYT has exchanged the word "wiretapped" for "intercepted communications". The Democrat Media Complex has understood that their false investigations are involving a few skeletons falling out in the Obama closet. Every mention of investigations will now be sanitised. Taibbi explains on Rolling Stone Magazine:
Why the Russia Story Is a Minefield for Democrats and the Media
Russia scandals have bloodied the Trump administration. But it carries dangers for those reporting it. (Source)

WHAT'S WITH TRUMP ANTISEMITISM ALLEGATIONS? 




After a spate of false bomb alarms at Jewish Community Centers (JCC) and the vandalism of a number of Jewish cemetaries the Dems have been accusing the Trump admin of anti Semitism. Notwithstanding the Trump family's personal connections and Israel MP Netanyahu saying not long ago that Israel has no better friend than Trump. Under Obama some 6,000 attacks on Jewish centers were registered. This is nothing new. VP Mike Pence assisted personally with the repair of a cemetary last week; President Trump opened his address to the Joint Session of Congress with a condemnation of the attacks. A Trump adviser Scaramucci was alluding to the attacks in a tweet that has CNN's Fake Japper coming to the assistance of the Democrats: revelations by Project Veritas have shown that inner party operators have been caught in organizing violence against the Trump campaign.

James O'Keefe of Project Veritas is set to unleash holy hell Thursday on #FakeNews network CNN. Well, he didn't exactly say it was CNN, but it was heavily implied. Apparently the network has a mole... O'Keefe is known for undercover sting operations which have led to such bombshells as the DNC's paid agitator network, the outing of "DisruptJ20" / Antifa organizers which took place at comet ping pong - and netted three arrests (including a suspected pedophile), and most recently New Hampshire election fraud.

FREE MEDIA DOES NOT MEAN IMMUNITY

Rush Limbaugh discovered recently that the media are arguing that an attack on them is tantamount to an attack on the First Amendment. This is a false premise. And it shows the equivocations they insert into the debate and how they think about themselves and their role in society. They are mistaken.

THE MEDIA DRIVEN "CLIMATE OF VIOLENCE" 


Is there a media-driven “climate of violence”? You bet there is, and it’s being whipped up by the left and the Main Stream Media, here and around the world. And it has a clear purpose: The ultimate goal is the destruction of the Trump presidency—and, for at least some, seemingly, the goal is the assassination of President Trump himself. But don’t take Virgil’s word for it: Have a look at the cover of Village magazine. That cover shows a rifle’s crosshairs superimposed on a photograph of Trump’s head. And the headline reads, “Why not.” (...) The Village article itself plays a clever editorial game. (...)

So let’s look more closely at this idea of a “climate of violence,” which is said to foster acts of actual violence. Sometimes this inflammatory “climate” is real, and sometimes it is not real. We’ve learned that while the political left usually says that it opposes this sort of violence-inducing “climatology,” in fact, quite often, it embraces it—even adores it. Yes, today, the left talks a lot about “peace,” “coexistence,” and all that. And yet, as Virgil wrote in January, when it comes to Trump, one tool of the left, the MSM, gets notably militant; it becomes hormonally eager to reach for violent imagery. (...)

Breitbart itself is increasingly the target. Virgil might add that the tactics being used are straight out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. All of Alinsky’s “rules” are being practiced today, but we can focus on Rule #11: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Breitbart is tough; we’re used to fights and fighting. This wasn’t a fight we began, but it is a fight we seek to win. And yet everyone on the populist-nationalist right ought to see the current situation clearly: The hard left has plenty of resources, and no scruples about deploying those resources. (...)

So that’s the real context of the vast “climate of violence” conjured up by the left. It’s all part of a master plan—a plan for mastery. That is, smash the enemy, and then rearrange the pieces into a new left-wing order. Yet in the meantime, we must remember the main target: President Trump. And so we can can step back and observe, with grim certainty, the dream scenario of some on the other side: A weird and bloody kind of lefty-media glory awaits the person who takes to heart the message of that cover story in Village.

16 FAKE NEWS STORIES, TERROR ATTACKS OMITTED


Since at least Donald Trump’s election, our media have been in the grip of an astonishing, self-inflicted crisis. Despite Trump’s constant railing against the American press, there is no greater enemy of the American media than the American media. They did this to themselves. We are in the midst of an epidemic of fake news. There is no better word to describe it than “epidemic,” (...) It is difficult to adequately sum up the breadth of this epidemic, chiefly because it keeps growing: day after day, even hour after hour, the media continue to broadcast, spread, promulgate, publicize, and promote fake news on an industrial scale. It has become a regular part of our news cycle, not distinct from or extraneous to it but a part of it, embedded within the news apparatus as a spoke is embedded in a bicycle wheel. (...) Since Trump’s election, here’s just a small sampling of fake news that our media and our journalist class have propagated. (More)


Trump administration seen as more truthful than news media: poll 

The Trump administration is more trusted than the news media among voters, according to a new Emerson College poll. The administration is considered truthful by 49 percent of registered voters and untruthful by 48 percent. But the news media is less trusted than the administration, with 53 percent calling it untruthful and just 39 percent finding it honest. (More)

GOLDEN MEDIA AGE OF TRUMP


There's an interesting contradiction. The media have not been doing what they are supposed to do for a long time. Nobody can deny they are partisan. Their reaction to the public losing confidence has been endless meta journalism and playing the victim card positioning the President as a bully. *Awwww* In the video Michael Wolff is telling Stelter the media are fascinated by the "golden media age" of Trump, so cut the crap!

BANNON RIPS THE MEDIA: SHUT UP AND LISTEN

There are still pundits insisting there is nothing to see here. Frankly this is even more offensive than the media insulting the voters on a daily basis.
The media had a gigantic whinefest Thursday after President Trump‘s scruffy senior advisor Steve Bannon said the media should be “embarrassed” about how wrong they got the 2016 presidential election. He told a NYT reporter that the fourth estate should “keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile.”


“When a white nationalist tells you to shut up, who knows humiliation and embarrassment like someone who cuddles up to the frog Nazi movement?” MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked rhetorically on Lawrence O’Donnell‘s program Thursday night. “So yeah, I guess he would understand about embarrassment. I am embarrassed indeed that he is steps away from the president of the United States. O’Donnell and Reid joked that maybe they should just sit there silently for 45 minutes.

They weren’t the only journalists to react with deep shock to Bannon’s blustery attack. “A lie as much as anything else,” tweeted BuzzFeed‘s Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith, who published a 35-page dossier the site knew likely contained lies about Donald Trump on behalf of the Russians. “No reason for media to let him make this true by saying it over and over.” Among Bannon’s jabs was that the media is the “opposition party.”

To that, WaPo‘s Professor Chris Cillizza remarked, “This is a fundamental misunderstanding of the media’s role.” Even when he’s making sense Jay Rosen, the nerdy, smug NYU journalism prof, is still annoying. He blasted Bannon, saying, “If there was any doubt in journalists’ minds that the press was being used as a hate object, Bannon just ended it.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper, who is largely known for being accepted by both the left and right spectrums of the media, said on air as well as Twitter, “Reminder that the president’s top aide just told NYT that the press should keep its mouth shut.

Steven Crowder, a conservative political commentator, had a different take. “I’m not a Steve Bannon fan,” he said. “But he wasn’t silencing the media. He was offering advice for avoiding further humiliations.” He was reacting to Jim Roberts, who had a pointed response to Trump’s senior aide:
“Note to Steve Bannon: The media SHOULDN’T keep its mouth shut. And it won’t. I’ve said this before. No president has successfully waged war against the news media. Trump will be no different.” 
Roberts spent 26 years at the NYT, where ultimately he held the position of assistant managing editor.

CNN media writer Dylan Byers surprisingly agreed with Crowder. In his elder statesman’s nightly newsletter — I’m referring to Brian Stelter — Byers wrote,
“The insinuation that the media should ‘keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while’ is troubling, though perhaps not as much as folks think. Maybe I’m wrong, but I think Bannon meant to say that the media should rethink its approach to Trump before criticizing his every utterance. I’m not defending what he said, but I don’t think we need to be histrionic either. I don’t think he’s calling for an actual gag order.”

JOHN LEWIS ATTACK TURNED INTO #FAKENEWS


Fake News used to be click bait and public hoaxes. But to Obama and the mainstream media Fake News is whatever they believe Conservatives think. But in actual fact, Fake News are the lies and constructs the media have been disseminating for years. Those denouncing it, are most likely to spread it. 


UPDATE: Civil rights icon and Democrat Senator John Lewis said in an interview on Friday he considers Donald Trump an illegitimate president on account of the elections being "hacked by the Russians". The Democrats were going to play that card one way or another, because other than by legal means, it is the most effective way of dealing with a president you don't like. Which begs the question, where will they stop? The answer is, at nothing. So a piece of Fake News is all in a day's work for the media: pulling the Palestinian trick is on page 1 of the playbook: reversing cause and effect, the aggressor and the victim are switched sides. Plus, NYT has new instructions for journalists and the media.

LEFT CONCEDES LOSING #FAKENEWS BATTLE


The Fake News meme backfired, big league! That means for the US that it will die as fast as it came up. But try explain that to Europeans. They take these things seriously and Angela Merkel has already begun implementing a war on free speech with the help the Suckberg. No European country is as protected by the First Amendment as the US is. And there's more good news for the US in this episode! And a lesson for the rest of us
Writing at  the Washington Post, Margaret Sullivan bemoans the fact that conservatives have flipped the meaning of “fake news” from a term used by the mainstream media to attack stories that are troublesome for progressives to a label to call out the media’s false narratives: But though the term hasn’t been around long, its meaning already is lost. Faster than you could say “Pizzagate,” the label has been co-opted to mean any number of completely different things: Liberal claptrap. Or opinion from left-of-center. Or simply anything in the realm of news that the observer doesn’t like to hear. “The speed with which the term became polarized and in fact a rhetorical weapon illustrates how efficient the conservative media machine has become,” said George Washington University professor Nikki Usher. As Jeremy Peters wrote in the New York Times: “Conservative cable and radio personalities, top Republicans and even Mr. Trump himself . . . have appropriated the term and turned it against any news they see as hostile to their agenda.”

NYE FAKENEWS: NO RUSSIANS IN THE POWER GRID


The news outlets have been running the piece of #FakeNews, of "Russians In The Grid," all day yesterday from cover to cover. The media are doing their utmost to link Trump to Putin and equivocate today's Russia with the Soviet Union. Then they stir up hatred against both. On New Years Eve, when no one was watching, the US Government confirmed that the Russians didn't hack the power grid after all. This is how that works.





"Let's be clear on one thing, the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism, they're a political special interest no different than any lobbyist or financial entity with a total political agenda and the agenda is not for you, it's for themselves. And their agenda is to elect Crooked Hillary Clinton at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy." --Donald Trump 10/14/20

WAPO FAKENEWS: RUSSIANS IN THE POWER GRID!


No wonder the FakeNews meme continues to backfire. Every confabulation by the Democrats and their media lapdogs is now immediately exposed as such. In the light of "the Russians Hacked Us" meme the Fake News outlet, the Washington Post actually broke news that the "Vermont power grid has been hacked". The elites are preying on the public's ignorance of such things. What actually is the case, is that a remnant of malware was detected on a laptop that has nothing to do with the operation of the grid.
John Hultquist, who has spent a decade tracking cyber espionage threats for both the government and private sector, noted that Russian operators had previously infiltrated the grid, making it possible that the discovered code was a “lingering infection.” (...) Robert M. Lee, CEO and founder of cybersecurity company Dragos, which specializes in threats facing critical infrastructure, also noted that the IOCs included “commodity malware,” or hacking tools that are widely available for purchase. No evidence at this time connects the malware to Russia or any recent hacking campaigns. Soon after publication of the Post’s story, it was revealed that the malware had only infected a utility company laptop that had no access whatsoever to the electrical grid. (More)

NYT ACKNOWLEDGES FAKE NEWS BACKFIRED


NY Times admits that conservatives have effectively thrown the label of FakeNews right back in the MSM's face. With a twist. NYT: 
“The fake news is the everyday news” in the mainstream media, he [Limbaugh] said on his radio show recently. “They just make it up.” Some supporters of President-elect Donald J. Trump have also taken up the call. (...) “Fake news!” Until now, that term had been widely understood to refer to fabricated news accounts that are meant to spread virally online. But conservative cable and radio personalities, top Republicans and even Mr. Trump himself, incredulous about suggestions that fake stories may have helped swing the election, have appropriated the term and turned it against any news they see as hostile to their agenda. In defining “fake news” so broadly and seeking to dilute its meaning, they are capitalizing on the declining credibility of all purveyors of information, one product of the country’s increasing political polarization. 
And conservatives, seeing an opening to undermine the mainstream media, a longtime foe, are more than happy to dig the hole deeper. “Over the years, we’ve effectively brainwashed the core of our audience to distrust anything that they disagree with. And now it’s gone too far,” said John Ziegler, a conservative radio host, who has been critical of what he sees as excessive partisanship by pundits. “Because the gatekeepers have lost all credibility in the minds of consumers, I don’t see how you reverse it.” (More)
Showing how dangerous this game of dis and misinformation actually is, Pakistan and Israel have been exchanging nuclear threats over Christmas:

MEGYN KELLY SMEARS ALEX JONES IN FAKE NEWS




Dec 15, 2016 Alex Jones: Megyn Kelly makes it appear he is claiming Hillary Clinton was murdering children in PizzaGate. 

 On Dec. 14 Megyn Kelly aired a segment on her show The Kelly File where she blatantly edited and mis-attributed a statement of Alex Jones to make it appear that he is claiming Hillary Clinton was directly involved in murdering children in the Pizza Gate Controversy. A total out-of-context section of audio is revealed as being on another subject completely. But she’s banking that the American public is stupid and won’t check on it. Well, checkmate Megyn, here is the whole truth as explained by Alex Jones himself. Here is the specific segment, and below the entire episode. But gutter journo Kelly doesn't stop there. Jack Posobiec, Special Events Director of Citzens for Trump was portrayed as the crazed gun man, who btw has all the hallmarks of a patsy or a hired actor, which proves that the entire thing is staged and more Fake News to discredit the alternative media!

10 REASONS WHY "RUSSIAN HACKING" IS FAKE NEWS


Here are just ten of the reasons the “Russian hacking” story is a sham — a left-wing twist on the red-baiting McCarthyism of the 1950s. 

1. There is actually no new information leading the CIA to its conclusion.
2. The “evidence” that the CIA has gathered is inconclusive.
3. The CIA is not making public claims that Russia hacked the election.
4. Despite left-wing “fake news,” there is no evidence Russian hackers actually distorted the voting process.
5. The Obama administration has a history of manipulating intelligence for political gain.
6. Julian Assange and Wikileaks have vigorously denied that the Russians were involved in Wikileaks’ disclosures.
7. The fact that the Russians might constantly be trying to hack U.S. systems, and might even specifically have targeted the election, does not prove that they succeeded.
8. Foreign interference in elections is nothing new — and the Obama administration is a prime culprit.
9. What would the consequences of allowing undue Russian influence in our elections be, exactly?
10. Occam’s razor: the simplest explanation for the “Russian hacking” story is that it is “fake news” that suits the left-wing media.

REAL NEWS VERSUS FAKE NEWS ON SYRIA

THE FALL OF ALEPPO: AN EXERCISE IN FAKE NEWS


The fall of Aleppo to state forces is a live instruction how Fake News is manufactured. Propaganda is as old as humanity, but news by PR adviser started in earnest with the civil war in Kosovo (dossier), the scenario of which was written by a PR firm in the service of Bill Clinton in the cause of Greater Albania. The strategic mess in Syria defies description. The US and other Western states (primarily UK and France) have chosen to cast the secular forces of Assad in the role of the devil, just so they could support the "moderate rebels" who in actual fact are none other than Sunni radical Muslims backed up by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, with ISIS shock troops in the vanguard. At one point the search for the illusive "moderates" became so desperate that Al Qaeda aligned terrorists were rubber stamped as such (as Tulsi Gabbard explains in the video below). While Assad is backed by unsavory Iran and Russia, this moral dilemma should not be that hard. As Paul Watson says, our media have no reporters on the ground. They are fed by PR advisers and rare "embedded" reporters on the rebels' side: this guy perhaps? It's reminiscent of how the media covers the wars in Gaza and Pallywood. The people in the West should hope and pray that Assad is not going to let the rebels get away. In part, these battle hardened chickens will be coming home to roost. And our political leaders are too weak to protect our safety.

KRUGMAN BLOWS THE LID OFF FAKE NEWS


Paul Krugman reveals the actual purpose of the Democrat/Hillary/media machinations, which are not aimed at Conservatives but at their own base. They are stoking the idea that the election of President Elect Donald Trump wasn't fair for whatever reason. They will keep up this meme until the liberal base has fully internalized it. At which point the subversion of the Trump Presidency can begin in earnest; of course for the good of the country and with an appeal to patriotic zeal. Too bad for them that the people had just about enough of this after 8 long years of Obama. The Obama Theorem says that he set himself up against an imaginary demon that opposed his good will at every turn. A democratic opposition fails to trigger the effect of violent resistance: the opposition must be transformed into some moral evil, like racists, terrorists or Russian collaborators. This is how Socialists operate. We must prepare for Democrat open warfare against the country and the will of the people.

'FAKE NEWS' TO COVER UP CORRUPTION 


Reason.com tells the official version of "an idiot" firing a rifle on Sunday in Comet Ping Pong Pizzeria in Washington DC because he was trying to investigate PizzaGate "inspired by a false story, promptly blamed on "fake news." In reality, as we reported yesterday it was a false flag operation and the "idiot" was actually a hired actor. The purveyors of the Fake News meme then proceeded to link the assault to the National Security Advisor nominee, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and his son, on the grounds that Flynn had tweeted about the PizzaGate story. But it turned out the general had actually been alluding to another case of possible child abuse, likewise deemed a 'conspiracy theory'. An article in Mediaite relating the episode makes plain where the liberal media are going with the Fake News Operation. Update: Trump fires Flynn Jr fom transition team.
Unfortunately for Flynn, whatever moral high ground he may have had on this issue evaporated pretty quickly once his son Michael Flynn Jr. did come out and defend PizzaGate.
The inference is clear: who pursues investigations into cases of corruption or crime before there's actual proof, or who reports or supports it, is outside the realm of morality. It is what any blogger, citizen journalist or alternative media worth his salt tries to do. Fake News is an operation of the mainstream media to shut down the competition and to cover up establishment corruption. Or would that be Fake News? RAMrants catches the moral essence why the Pizzagate meme is all wrong. No Fake News media now about "the seriousness of the charge".


In Europe the matter is even worse. The EU Commission is pressuring the online media to step up censoring what is now called "illegal speech".


Tucker Carlson defines Fake News like this: “Fake news is whatever people living in the liberal bubble determine to be believed by the right” and this is now morally linked to evil doing. Reason goes in the history:
In the long-gone days of early 2016, fake news mostly meant clickbait sites that publish hoaxes, some with a satiric veneer and some just flatly aimed at tricking people; the stories could involve anything from Willie Nelson dying to a woman trying on tampons in a WalMart aisle. These days "fake news" still means that, but it also gets applied to highly partisan outlets that may be sloppy with their facts; and content factories that just don't care about their facts; and Russian disinformation campaigns, real or alleged; and pretty much any conspiracy theory that finds a foothold online. (Like PizzaGate.) Even a police sting got the "fake news" label last week because the operation included a deceptive press release. And of course it's also a phrase that people throw back in the mainstream media's faces any time the press botches a story. 
In other words, "fake news" has become a catchall term for saying something false in public, otherwise known as the human condition. This does not bode well for people who think they can find a fix to "the fake news problem," given that clickbait and rumors and disinformation and sloppy reporting and so on are all different things. They overlap, sure, but they're not the same phenomenon, and you're not going to find a one-size-fits-all solution to them—not unless your solution is "Introduce a little more skepticism to your media consumption habits." Of course, that's a good idea whether or not the news is fake. (Source)

FAKE NEWS IS MISINFORMATION, DISINFORMATION



Nov. 28, 2016 Alex Jones: Central Intelligence Agency’s long history of creating "fake news". 

Fake news is nothing but misinformation and disinformation, in other words, it's psy-ops. Fake news, half truths, slander from vague sources. It's everywhere. Fake News items like "Media Spreads False Ivanka Trump Quote About Macing The Donald" (source) serves two purposes: apart of the aspect of slandering an opponent, the theory is that the public at large will simply give up on separating fake news from real news, and fall back on the "trusted mainstream media". Here's the article from the video: "U.S. Repeals Propaganda Ban, Spreads Government-Made News to Americans" (source). Let us know if you're having trouble accessing it.

GOOGLE CHANGE TRUMP TOWER TO "DUMP TOWER"


In addition to blindly reproducing unreliable, unchecked slander and propaganda from anonymous, suspect sources, the mainstream media also show us how unbelievably petty and infantile their thought processes are. Check the Dump Tower meme for the mindset of an 8 year old. For a few hours Trump Tower turned into "Dump Tower" on Google Maps.  Google spokesperson told AP they changed the name back to Trump Tower. No mention of a mistake and an excuse. Here's Greenwald's original article about the conduct of WaPo and other Fake News media on the Russian slander story. 

THE WASHINGTON POST ON THURSDAY NIGHT promoted the claims of a new, shadowy organization that smears dozens of U.S. news sites that are critical of U.S. foreign policy as being “routine peddlers of Russian propaganda.” The article by reporter Craig Timberg – headlined “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say” – cites a report by a new, anonymous website calling itself “PropOrNot,” which claims that millions of Americans have been deceived this year in a massive Russian “misinformation campaign.” The group’s list of Russian disinformation outlets includes WikiLeaks and the Drudge Report, as well as Clinton-critical left-wing websites such as Truthout, Black Agenda Report, Truthdig and Naked Capitalism, as well as libertarian venues such as Antiwar.com and the Ron Paul Institute. This Post report was one of the most widely circulated political news articles on social media over the last 48 hours, with dozens, perhaps hundreds, of U.S. journalists and pundits with large platforms hailing it as an earth-shattering exposé. It was the most-read piece on the entire Post website after it was published on Friday. (More)

LEFTY FACTOIDS POST "RUSSIAN PROPAGANDA" BLACKLIST


So typical of the GDR method: ostracizing, shunning, shaming, blacklisting. The globalist Left has embarked on reverse McCarthyism. Only McCarthy had it right, which is the reason we find ourselves today fighting crypto commies like Uber Lefty propagandist Max Blumenthal and PropOrNot. This is outright slander! Even Glenn Greenwald -- not known as a staunch Right winger -- is absolutely disgusted. Wikileaks, Drudge (LOL) Lew Rockwell, PrisonPlanet, Infowars and ZeroHedge are on the enemies list, but contrary to an earlier blacklist, not Breitbart. What to think of that? 




So out of touch from reality, they don't even know they're out of touch....

Whatever the mainstream media say or write, do not believe it. Trump did not walk back anything. Reading through the actual transcript it becomes apparent how they distort reality. An example:

SULZBERGER: Well, since we’re living on an island, sir, I want to thank you for having an open mind. We saw what these storms are now doing, right? We’ve seen it personally. Straight up.

FRIEDMAN: But you have an open mind on this?

TRUMP: I do have an open mind. And we’ve had storms always, Arthur. (...)

TRUMP: You know the hottest day ever was in 1890-something, 98. You know, you can make lots of cases for different views. I have a totally open mind.

My uncle was for 35 years a professor at M.I.T. He was a great engineer, scientist. He was a great guy. And he was … a long time ago, he had feelings — this was a long time ago — he had feelings on this subject. It’s a very complex subject. I’m not sure anybody is ever going to really know. I know we have, they say they have science on one side but then they also have those horrible emails that were sent between the scientists. Where was that, in Geneva or wherever five years ago? Terrible. Where they got caught, you know, so you see that and you say, what’s this all about. I absolutely have an open mind. I will tell you this: Clean air is vitally important. Clean water, crystal clean water is vitally important. Safety is vitally important. (...)

TRUMP: I think right now … well, I think there is some connectivity. There is some, something. It depends on how much. It also depends on how much it’s going to cost our companies. You have to understand, our companies are noncompetitive right now.

They’re really largely noncompetitive. About four weeks ago, I started adding a certain little sentence into a lot of my speeches, that we’ve lost 70,000 factories since W. Bush. 70,000. When I first looked at the number, I said: ‘That must be a typo. It can’t be 70, you can’t have 70,000, you wouldn’t think you have 70,000 factories here.’ And it wasn’t a typo, it’s right. We’ve lost 70,000 factories.

We’re not a competitive nation with other nations anymore. We have to make ourselves competitive. We’re not competitive for a lot of reasons. (...)

TRUMP PUTS MAINSTREAM MEDIA ON NOTICE


It's astonishing to realize that all the spin, lies and distortions are emanating from a hand full of individuals. Yesterday they were put on notice by the President-Elect when he unloaded on the bigwigs of the mainstream TV networks. He went on to prove the irrelevance of the dinosaur media by addressing the nation directly from his Facebook Page. (MoreOn Tuesday it was the turn of the failing New York Times. They were forewarned and wanted the meeting to be 'on the record'. Donald Trump wasn't playing ball and cancelled. The media don't run the world, even if they think they do.
President-elect Donald Trump met with top reporters and anchors from mainstream media outlets at Trump Tower on Monday, where he reportedly admonished them for their biased coverage during the presidential race.

The meeting was reportedly “off the record,” but a source told the New York Post that the scene was reminiscent of a “firing squad.” The New York Post reports: President-elect Donald Trump exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday, sources told The Post. “It was like a f—ing firing squad,” said one source. “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed…. “The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter. (More)

GLOBALISTS DECLARE WAR ON FREE MEDIA







Nov. 17, 2016


OBAMA, MERKEL BLAME BLOGGERS FOR RESISTING GLOBALISM



Nov 16, 2016 Trump Exposes Media As Fake News. 

A double bill today on the quite open censoring of the alternative media. This is not just the initiative of the Suckbergers et al. It is coordinated from the top. In the video Alex Jones breaks down the vast web of lies the media continues to spin in order to discredit Donald Trump, after he has proven time and time again that he will potentially be one of the greatest leaders the US has ever seen. More about fake news on the Live Blog on the social media.

Obama is continuing his victory lap around the world telling leaders how bad Donald Trump is, connecting the downfall of Hillary Clinton, the Democrat party and the globalist cabal to the free stream of information on the Internet. You see, to the globalists man isn't a free thinking human being making his own moral choices. No, people are cattle who can't handle too much information. As Angela Merkel puts it, information is something that must managed, steered and controlled by the Government. She is a true daughter of the German Democratic Republic, the Soviet Union's satellite that outsovieted the USSR.
President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are blaming the internet for disrupting the forces of globalism, suggesting that technology is making it more difficult to unite people behind a common purpose. “Because of the internet and communications, the clash of cultures is much more direct,” Obama said during a press conference on his trip to Berlin. “People feel, I think, less certain about their identity. Less certain about economic security.” 
Obama predicted that the rise of technology needed to be managed to give world citizens more control, beyond the simplistic answers found online. His German counterpart agreed. “Digitization is a disruptive force, a disruptive technological force that brings about deep-seated change, transformation of a society,” Merkel added. She compared the internet to the invention of the printing press, citing the consequences it had on industrialized countries. 
“It took a while until societies learned how to find the right kind of policies to contain this and to manage and steer this,” she said. Obama blamed social media for creating a climate where facts didn’t matter, asserting that facts were the basis of democracy. Social media, he explained, allowed people to get their information “in sound bites” off their phones. 
“Part of ways changed in politics is social media and how people are receiving information,” he said, “It’s easier to make negative attacks and simplistic slogans than it is to communicate complex policies.” He warned that “active misinformation” packaged for Facebook was a problem when it’s creators tried to equate an “overzealousness” of a United States government official with a foreign dictator. “If we can’t discriminate between serious arguments and propaganda, then we have problems,” he warned. 
It’s not the first time that President Obama has griped about media, as he has floated suggestions of some kind of regulation of the internet. In October, he pointed out that it was time to move the internet beyond the “Wild Wild West” stage and proposed “truthiness tests” for media companies online. Merkel has demonstrated a propensity for censorship for social media, specifically to social media posts criticizing a flood of Syrian refugees into the country.

THE YOUNG TURKS ELECTION DAY MELTDOWN




Nov. 13, 2016 Best Of The Young Turks Election Day Meltdown 2016: From smug to utterly devastated.

The media are continuing their game as usual. They don't understand what caused the Trump revolution. But besides, they don't have any other playbook. Which means that the present process is going to continue until its final consequence. A tweet from Ed Conway, Economics Editor of SkyNews and columnist at The Times tells the story. He is presenting himself as a victim, oblivious of the fact that Trump is simply bypassing the media. They have become irrelevant.

MEDIA HOAX! TRUMP ISN'T FOR TURNING


The globalists and the lapdog media are stunned, in shock and awe. After a week of Trump's election they are still trying to work out what hit them. Slowly we shall see them refinding their bearings. They never give up. Possibly they are already plotting as we speak. In the Periscope the Director Special Projects of Citizens For Trump, Jack Posobiec explains the parallel realities, the media hoax, the meaning of redpilling and why the media have no other option than the say that Trump is changing his policies when nothing of the sort is the case. That the media are still up to their old tricks we can see in the presser just held in Athens with President Obama and Greek PM Alex Tsipras (sourc

MEGYN KELLY'S SOCIAL JUSTICE AGENDA


The episode on Tuesday between Newt Gingrich and Megyn Kelly isn't worth mentioning, were it not that Kelly is such a typical example of a postmodern social justice activist dressed up as a news person. She thinks she is neutral, but all the while she is subjecting everything -- even her success as a Fox News info babe -- to her covert agenda. In this case feminism took precedence over her interview with a man who has decades of experience in elections. Nothing mattered, except her pet peeve. This was not just highly disrespecting to Newt. It was above all very unprofessional. Apparently CNN spent full 20 minutes on the subject. They gladly sacrificed competitive considerations as a news network to their present social justice goal: the destruction of Trump. Because of course CNN applauded Kelly for her 'brave stance' as a social justice warrior.

"DECLARE THE ELECTION OVER" 


The source of this leak is unclear. It seems to be a page from the Clinton campaign handbook chapter on Digital Disruption, from the Research Dept. to the Staff with instructions on how to discourage Trump support: "Barrage with high frequency polls and declare the election over". The media was working with Hillary Clinton to release bogus weighted polls that show Hillary ahead of Trump. And then step two was to declare the election over. This is where we are at present. Flashback— MEDIA DIRTY TRICKS: CBS, NBC Manipulate Polling Data to Show Hillary with Lead Over Trump. Update: The Daily Beast is enjoying Conservatives falling for this fake document. (Source) Good job then, that we don't have to rely on its evidence to know what's going on. It's across every TV screen for all to see. But there's also this whopper discovered by Anonymous (video), connecting the dots between Hillary and a popular pollster.

In the meantime the Trump campaign has released a Statement on Monopoly Power of New Media Conglomerates. The statement explains how the media are a cartel in the service of globalist interests, in opposition against the American voters. Worth the read! It won't take long.

Even in the face of all the evidence to the contrary, the media are continuing their gaslighting of the voters. As every gangster knows, never ever give up the con...deny, deny, deny. (From Hillary's America, a must see film by Dinesh D'Souza that blows wide open the false Democrat narrative).

"THE US MEDIA HAS FULLY WEAPONIZED" 


The U.S. media has crossed the Rubicon into a world of abject nuttery. It’s one thing to predict it happening, it is quite another to bear witness. There are literally a hundred current stories/issues which, under normal non-corrupt circumstances, would be top headlines. Instead the media hides the most jaw-dropping governmental corruption revelations, and choose to focus on the ridiculous. On one hand, looking at the geography, there’s a sense that eventually they are going to have to cover stories like WikiLeaks, Project Veritas investigative series, or the now openly transparent corrupt leadership influence of the FBI. However, on the other hand is an acceptance the corporate media (writ large) really don’t have anything to lose by ignoring all of it. Indeed, if the media lose this election – all their influence and affluence will vaporize…. so they’re really in a situation where there’s no risk from continuing the current objective. That said, their predictable behavior is still a remarkable thing to see. They have become a parody of themselves, albeit by their own corporate doing.

"WHO'S POISONING THE VOTERS' MINDS? 


Based on the above footage, you might think the media are ready to give up on Hillary. They've tried all the usual tricks, but nothing has been able to separate Trump from his voters. The times have changed. The media no longer monopolize the information war. The New York Times has produced an interesting analysis, why the media "missed" the angry mood in 'flyover country'. That's where the peasants live who vote for Trump. Regarding their own bias the author is virtually in denial. The voters are no better than cattle, at best victims of the latter day Mussolini from New York who's "poisoning their minds" with DANGEROUS talk about the elections being rigged. The media are now so frightened of the angry white peasantry with their pitchforks, they're bringing security detail to the dangerous Trump rallies. The info warfare and gas lighting continues.

HILLARY STRATEGIST THROWS DINNER PARTIES FOR THE FRIENDLY MEDIA


John Podesta invites the company of the friendly press for dinner parties at home and at the residence of Joel Benenson. (Off the record, of course.) Now who the heck is Joel Benenson you might ask. Well, Joel Benenson is an American pollster and consultant known for his role as a strategist for Barack Obama's 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. He is currently the chief strategist for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. (Wikipedia). They don't even bother to cover it up. Meaning, they don't see the moral issue. Or they just don't care anymore.

ANDERSON COOPER (CNN) TALKS TO TRUMP PUSSY VICTIM



Oct. 14, 2016 CNN: Anderson Cooper talks to Miss Piggy: Donald Trump kissed me 50 years ago. 

Trump is battling allegations that came to light Wednesday after two women told The New York Times in a report that the Republican presidential nominee touched them inappropriately, allegations that were quickly followed by a similar claim in People Magazine. CNN has not yet independently confirmed either The New York Times or People Magazine accounts. The Trump campaign described the entire Times article as a "fiction" that amounted to "character assassination." A Trump attorney also issued an open letter to The Times demanding an immediate retraction and apology. The Trump campaign told People Magazine: "This never happened. There is no merit or veracity to this fabricated story." Trump said the stories were attacks orchestrated by the "Clinton machine" and its media allies and he said that he was facing the "single greatest pile on in history" because he represented an "existential threat" to the political establishment. (CNN)

Donald Trump is almost 70 years old. For 50 years he had beautiful and powerful women throwing themselves at him and not one has complained about sexual harassment. But 24 days before the Presidential election, a dozen of women comes crawling out of the woodwork. The same is true about allegations of racism. The media that drum up these stories are an extention of the Clinton Campaign. The UK Telegraph counts no less than 12 and even has a Trump sexism tracker.
this was tweeted on Oct. 9, the day before the allegations.




Media answer threats to establishment power with sexual allegations.

FAMOUS JOURNALIST SHARYL ATTKINSEN IGNITES FIRESTORM


Award-winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson made a few general observations on the media attack on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump that are both instructive and worth consideration. The New York Times began the process with a report that two women claimed that they were both sexually groped by Trump. Then an onslaught of similar allegations from different outlets began pouring in. Those events — in and of themselves — prompted Attkisson to step back from the maelstrom to ask, what really is going on here?


Those who are “very, very worried” can only be the Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign, who have been, to quote the late playwright Tennessee Williams, like a “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” since multiple Clinton scandals have been disclosed. And Julian Assange’s WikiLeaks has been turning up the heat big time. Attkisson observed that the allegations thrown at Trump may not be as they appear. Maybe we’re being told we should believe the images that are peering back at us — even though they come from a fun house mirror.
