The Elites of the “Deep State”, DNC, “and other liberal organizations see you as the Deplorable. Ignorant. Uninformed. Lazy. You have been successfully demoralized by the ‘fake news’; the inevitable Red Wave has inexplicably become high humidity. So you’ll stay home with a tub of popcorn, watching Bret Beir play with this tumescent computer screen, popping up states and races turning blue with all the excitement of a gamer playing Grand Theft Auto XXIV.
Mainstream Media Dishonesty
We are all Paul Reveres now. Today’s ‘lanterns in the north church tower’ shine every day on every newscast, in every newspaper, magazine, Drudge Report, Zero Hedge, right here in the Blue State Conservative. The ubiquitous Internet rivals the hundreds of other ‘Paul Reveres’ who rode through the summer night calling out to sleeping patriots the time had come. But not everybody read or heard it. And just like 1775, there are those today, 247 years later, who don’t want to read or hear “the Government’s coming”.
Indeed, when evaluating which mainstream media personality best exemplifies leftwing, on-air activism, the only one besides Stelter who is even in the conversation is Stelter’s former CNN colleague Don Lemon. So, when CNN finally decided to pull the trigger and send the ratings-depleted and credibility-challenged Stelter packing, it was only a matter of time before the right-wing trolls came howling for Stelter. And come they did. Fox News host Greg Gutfeld, who is dominating the ratings for late-night TV, gave us this gem:
If Licht genuinely wants to turn his ship around, he can’t have clowns like Don Lemon, Wolf Blitzer, and Brian Stelter on the payroll. They’re toxic. They’re synonymous with leftism, voters know it, and the amount of baggage they bring is exceptional. Additionally, the producers and writers for those shows need to be sent packing as well. Licht can’t change the culture in his new company if he still employs culture warriors.
For this reason, the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) formulated a code of ethics that states, among other things, that journalists must be “fair”. Since the dictionary explains that the word “fair” means treating a group of people equally,” Lemon is factually incorrect that it is his “job” as a journalist to hold one group of people to a different standard than others. Quite the contrary, as SPJ’s Code of Ethics states, it is his job not to hold different groups to different standards.
While CNN was seeing strong ratings during the Trump Era, they were also lifting their skirt. CNN showed America and the world their true character: They were/are nothing but political activists with a far-left agenda. They fed their mind-numb, ignorant viewers a steady diet of ‘Trump is a Russian puppet’ for three years. Their minions nodded their heads, and CNN thought that were kicking ass. But in reality, they were absolutely destroying their reputation.
No, the reason why CNN and others are starting to report accurately on the dumpster fire known as the Biden Administration is not that they’ve seen the light and are now practicing journalistic integrity, it’s because they see the writing on the wall. They recognize that their cronies in government are going to lose power if they keep their wagon hitched to Biden.
With probably the most recent being Reuters on May 15, 2022. Suffice it to say, if several of them have made note of this phenomenon, they all should know of it. After all, they claim to be in the information business and this is a very serious topic that directly impacts their decision-making process.
Paging Politico: here is Ron DeSantis addressing the question of insurance at a public event this week. The issues Governor DeSantis has tackled range from tax relief to education to cancer research. Finding Ron DeSantis doing his job as a Governor is very easy even for a private citizen like myself. So, to paraphrase Brian Stelter, “with major newsrooms and desks and operations that work hard on verifying information,” the only reason that Politico wasn’t able to track Ron DeSantis is they were not trying very hard.
No serious Republican has endorsed this extreme racist French theory” that there is a Jewish plot to “replace” white Americans with Muslims and Africans (racist because it involves Jewish plots and refers to specific races and religions). Republican objections to the Democrat plan would be exactly the same if Democrats were importing blonde-haired blue-eyed yodeling Scandinavians to shift the US electorate to the Left.
Democrats have a history of politicizing horrific events like the one in Buffalo. They’re actively calling for restrictions on the first amendment, which essentially means they will determine what language best suits their political goals. So who is going to make this determination? Joe Biden’s Orwellian Disinformation Board? God help us all.
When you are in a knife fight in a back alley with a thug and you punch back after he has punched you, it would not be accurate for a “journalist” covering the fight to say that you are “contributing” to the fight, that is, making things worse by fighting back (not, of course, unless you are a Republican and the thug is a Democrat). Kayleigh’s point was that by identifying the culture war Trump was not making it worse.
Now, I don’t care about Kilmeade or his historical inaccuracies and resulting histrionics that would have made good B movie children’s fare in the 1950s. He is only one of many who cheat or are simply ignorant, at a historical presentation by omitting basic facts or not knowing them in the first place. And though Kilmeade is primarily a sports contributor and humorist he is hardly schooled in history.
Will Freefalling CNN Leave Their Leftism Behind? This Pledge From Incoming CEO Could Indicate Moderation
To fully appreciate this commitment from Licht, we need to first grasp the role Twitter plays in the mindset of leftwing journalism. Twitter isn’t merely the soapbox they stand on to have their voices heard, Twitter is where they go for affirmation. Twitter is the platform they use to ensure they’re properly aligned with the rest of the mind-numbed leftwing robots and talking heads and to make sure they’re properly regurgitating the Democratic Party’s talking points.
While there is nothing wrong with lifting the residents’ spirits with a patriotic message after a horrific tragedy, the mayor’s words fall flat. “The greatest city in the word” (the title NYC proudly held in the past) suffered an 8-year nightmare, causing a 7% population plunge. And based on Eric Adams’ performance so far, the situation is not going to improve any time soon.
A buzz throughout the industry began to circulate last month that things had become so bad, with subscriptions to the premium service coming in far below their overly optimistic expectations, that extensive layoffs at CNN+ were imminent. And there’s no doubt that these failures are the driving force behind the apparent seller’s regret that Wallace himself is now experiencing.
Both have had issues with their trustworthiness over the years. Wallace’s infamous performance during the 2020 Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump showed his true left-leanings, as he repeatedly interrupted Trump while allowing Biden to babble endlessly. And though there are other examples of Wallace’s reliability concerns, Brian Williams’ believability is utterly non-existent.
CNN and MSNBC have reportedly both traveled to Washington, DC, in recent weeks to pitch Psaki on leaving the impossible job of defending Joe Biden’s failing presidency towards a lucrative job with their news organizations. With ratings plummeting at both networks, the discussions have probably included offers for Psaki to assume a prominent role in their schedules hoping she would quickly boost their rating and become the next star in network news.
No, they’re gathering because of the way they feel about Trudeau and the mandates. The appearance of regime journalists on the scene, there to try and frame the issue in a way that makes the protesters look bad, is just an added bonus to the anti-Trudeau crowd because it gives them an opportunity to make as much of a mockery of the regime as they’re making of Trudeau and his tenuous grip on power.
What is curious about this case is that even if Burnett, and many other media figures who have harped on this same point, are right, this is hardly a consequential lie. Indeed, it is more like bragging, a “fish tale,” than lying: “I caught a bigger fish than any you ever caught”. But it is certainly not as consequential as lying about the current humanitarian crisis at our southern border, lying about the COVID facts, lying about nuclear deal with Iran, lying about the 4 Americans murdered in Benghazi
More importantly, Rogan respects the average person, the working stiff, the middle-class subscribers who listen to his podcast. He doesn’t tell them what to think. That is fundamentally different from the credentialed elites of the mainstream media, who simply impose their own point of view when not ignoring and dismissing the vast majority of Americans as an ignorant mass of unwashed white supremacists and racists.
On Friday, a SWAT team from Philadelphia P.D. were executing a search warrant. A suspect named Kristian Reyes, who has since been charged with multiple offences including attempted murder and various drug manufacturing crimes, wasn’t going to go quietly. He opened fire on police and struck one officer in the chest. Fortunately, that officer was wearing a bullet proof vest and has therefore lived to tell his story.
Much of the news coming from Durham’s probe has long been suspected, but now we have these elements documented, with the source of that documentation being Durham’s criminal investigation. Two serious questions that remain are these: How high up did this conspiracy go, and exactly who will end up in prison because of these activities?
The uprising of Canadian truckers inspires a general resistance to being pushed around by over-reaching elected officials and their bureaucratic subalterns, and the truckers’ example is being followed all over Western Civ. Wait until the American truckers get in the act, representing a vast class of citizens who have taken a beating for more than two years and, increasingly, have nothing left to lose.
As the saying goes, ‘those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones,’ yet Brian Stelter was residing in the most fragile of glass houses whilst launching cinder blocks. Brian Stelter and his comrades at CNN are some of the least credible “journalists” in the industry, and for Stelter to be pointing fingers at anyone and questioning their trustworthiness makes him a knucklehead.
