Today, however, it’s what you get when you are Conservative or have a message that pushes back against Leftist norms in any fashion whatsoever.
The translation is this: Leftists run media. Realize it. Process it. Understand its ramifications — and they are multiple. In many ways this was an absolutely brilliant strategy not unlike fire stations vs police stations.
Those who know this paradigm will know of what I speak. The preternatural brilliance thereof.
They are in the process of harshing the mediums, but they cannot eliminate the messages. It will turn out that Marshall McLuhan was egregiously wrong, not just a tad bit wrong.
Even the typesetters fucked things up. How’s that for Chance Theory?
Is McLuhan right? Where is the emPHAsis now? Why is it important or is it important?
I think you know the answer.
But what occurs when a particular mindset controls not only all the messages. . .

The American Media Maggots — like defense attorneys who, faced with the facts against them shift into personal ad hominem attack mode — have decided the only choice remaining to them is to double down with stunning celerity on cheating, scapegoating, minimizing, hiding, obfuscation, ignorance and, now, labeling. Time to re-brand and, moreover, stigmatize news sources other than their own.
Let’s start with some refreshing truth and, unfortunately, regress from there to the lies, ploys and Alinsky-like deception crafted to push the Leftists’ narrative of control.
Do you hear ANY of these examples trotted out by the American Media Maggots in their campaign of control? Of course not. They cannot abide truth. The last thing the “fake news” bleats are about is truth. Cognitive dissonance of the Left.
Welcome to the new normal. Aided and abetted by the Standard Leftist List.
The AMM are losing control. They don’t care for it one bit. The election, of course, told them so. The faces of the American Media Maggots were slammed into the hard and textured concrete sidewalk of reality, receiving completely unanticipated bloody injuries and broken facial bones.
The facts don’t lie. Print ads diminished by 15% during this third quarter at the largest newspaper publisher in the United States, Gannett — producer of USA Today and over 100 other brands. Revenues were down 17% at McClatchy (where I used to work in the 70s, having met Eleanor McClatchy herself), 19% at the New York Times and a massive 21% at the Wall Street Journal. Newspapers tried to make up revenue in the digital domain but that was no panacea because — you didn’t see this coming? — Millennials don’t like to pay for online entertainment (such as music and videos) and as far as they’re concerned, newspapers were entertainment. Who would pay for newspaper content when they could get everything they wanted from John Stewart or Steven Colbert?
I’d suggest that another of the reasons the American Media Maggots and social media happen to find themselves in this critical situation is due to their both manufacturing fake news and deleting real news.
Paul Watson explains.
The same media that gave Hillary 98% chance of winning & hoax rape stories is lecturing us about “fake news”
The American Media Maggots and social media are doubling down with censorship and the denigrating of non-major news sources. If it’s not ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, the New York Times, LA Times, etc. — then it’s not real news they say.
Witness, most recently, the major social platforms’ tsunami-like predilection towards censorship regarding “extremist content.” Who determines “extremist content” you ask? Well, if you have to ask the question you already grasp the answer. When you declare “fake news” you also inherently declare censorship and the elimination of free speech.
The AMM believe they have few options left because, even with the all-out 24/7 assault against Donald Trump, “their” candidate didn’t win. Part of the loss includes the realization that people were not paying sufficient attention, in their minds, to the so-called “mainstream media.” In other words, that the MSM was the only game in town.
Mark Zuckerberg outlines Facebook’s ideas to battle fake news
by Abby Ohlheiser
A week after trying to reassure the public that it was “extremely unlikely hoaxes changed the outcome of this election,” Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg outlined several ways the company might try to stop the spread of fake news on the platform in the future.
“We’ve been working on this problem for a long time and we take this responsibility seriously. We’ve made significant progress, but there is more work to be done,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Friday night post on his own Facebook page. He then named seven approaches the company was considering to address the issue, including warning labels on false stories, easier user reporting methods and the integration of third-party verification.
Just who are considered purveyors of “fake news”? That’s correct; mostly right-leaning or conservative sites, listed as Drudge or Breitbart.
But let’s state the obvious about the Drudge Report. It is nothing more than an aggregator of news. Drudge simply recaps various stories, news-sites. His sources are frequently Leftist US media, to include the NY Times, LA Times, and all the Usual Suspects. How in the hell is the Drudge Report “fake news”? That makes no sense whatsoever.
They have lost their “gatekeeper” status and desperately seek to lock it back up. This is what assails and offends the most. CNN’s Chris Cuoma sums it up best with this brief video, which is breathtaking in its arrogance.
Leftists insisted you couldn’t possess those emails. Unless you printed them out, of course. Cuomo could have advised people to read these emails online at Wikipedia. He did not. Additionally, the bulk of Leftists stated the emails were themselves false. But you cannot have your cake and eat it too. Either the emails are fake or it’s illegal to possess stolen federal documents and a violation of the USC. You justified the release of Trump’s tax papers, which was illegal. You didn’t seem much upset with that, NYT.
Fake news polls, AMM? Fake rape stories on any number of occasions, AMM? Cars that tip over, AMM? Dan Rather lying about George Bush? Hundreds of false discrimination stories? Rick Jones? Sharmeka Moffitt? Reza Aslan? Tahera Ahmad? Anti-gay tip receipt? Duke University? Michael Nifong? Oberlin KKK hoax? Tawana Brawley? Grand Valley State University black chick? Joseph Baken? CAIR’s staged videos? CNN interviewing their own cameraman, claiming it was an anti-Trump protester on Don Lemon? “Trumpers violent” when it was in fact Leftists who burned, hit, stabbed, cut, destroyed property around the US? HRC having a “98% chance of winning”?
The “Fourth Estate” exists only as, now, a PR firm for Leftists and Demorats. We’re on to you. You are in fact naked.
How shallow be thy memory, American Media Maggots. Where an anti-conservative meme exists, you jump on it and provide vast amounts of time, headline space and copy inches. Because you have an anti-conservative theme to catch.
And in this process the American Media Maggots have lost their credibility for a myriad of reasons. But the persons and situations responsible for their current plight need go no farther then each and every newsroom around the country, 95% of whom are registered Demorats, Greens or Socialists. This is why, when asked, journalists will never ever tell you for whom they voted in any way. They won’t even own it, hiding under the cloak of “impartiality” which is the last thing they are. Craven cowards all. Like Hillary Rodham Clinton, they absolutely cannot tell the truth. There are no such animals as “impartiality” in today’s newsrooms.
Any old person can report or make the news now. Photos and videos are everywhere. “Real” journalists aren’t required any more — and by “real” journalists I mean those schooled at the feet of Leftist elite universities and subjected to the pathological, intolerant, unrealistic, biased, limited, bitter, moribund thoughts of the Left. “Journalism” is now a wide-open game unconfined by ideology, cash or structure.
More ludicrous is the thought embraced by the AMM — as I briefed above — that Millennials or GenZ’rs are going to PAY for your content. Good luck with that shite. They have no idea what a “newspaper” or a subscription IS.
You want fake news? How about these, to begin? The examples are simply endless.
Leftist journalists believe they are infinitely more sophisticated and enlightened than the bulk of their readers or viewers, and certainly more so than us commoners, groundlings, proles and serfs, the unwashed and unrefined rabble who dare to vote, act, speak, write or advocate against their superior insight and their elitist cultured views. Their Perriers beat our crass and crude Budweisers any day. Just ask them.
In a brief moment of clarity, Kanye West admitted.
Then there was the Washington Post’s loving clasp of “fake news” via TheIntercept.com:
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 an anonymous website calling itself PropOrNot, which claims that millions of Americans have been deceived this year in a massive Russian “misinformation campaign.”
The odd thing is, PropOrNot.com simply lists sites it considers propaganda and — I sure hope you’re sitting down for this one — most of them lean to the right. Further, it establishes no evidence and fails to release the names of its “editorial board” or any names at all, for that matter. It simply claims that it’s the Russians, the Russians, the Russians. Despite the fact that one month before PropOrNot came out (November 30th), the FBI (via the NY Times) divulged it had no evidence to conclude Russia was behind Trump or the hacking or the campaigns. See my post here.
Leftist Google got into the game by removing “fake news” that per capita black people commit more crimes than Caucasoids (they do, shown by FBI statistics) as indicated by that huge Righty UK organization known as the Guardian. Except that the Guardian does not lean right. Damn. Now that’s inconvenient.
Let’s not forget the “journalists” who colluded with the Clinton campaign as proven by The Telegraph and Wikileaks. They provided an extra crispy chunk of fake news.
Of course, Hillary Clinton had to enter the mix with this.
Hillary Clinton’s answer? Government intervention.
So Michelle Malkin countered logically and demolished HRC’s arguments.
Let’s not forget that Hillary Clinton is a personal purveyor of fake news as she claimed back in 2008 that she landed in Bosnia under sniper fire.
She also claimed that the Benghazi attacks were the result of a “terrible video” created in the US which caused the Libyan natives to go immediately berserk.
That was a monstrous lie, because Hillary Clinton already knew that night — as she wrote to the Libyan president and her own daughter Chelsea in emails — that video had nothing to do with the Benghazi attacks which resulted in the deaths of four Americans; it was instead an “al Qaeda-like group.”
Clinton’s answer: the government should determine what’s “real news” and what isn’t. Excellent. Just like Russian submarines and ships, let’s put a governmental Political Officer in each and every newsroom around the United States. Let’s license bloggers. The answer from Leftists is always to remove freedoms instead of expanding freedoms. Clamp down on free speech when it doesn’t correspond with their world. It’s about banning and censorship.
Even the proven faker Brian Williams got into the mix regarding “fake news.” That the American Media Maggots covered him at all, is that not the ultimate in insanity? An individual who was fired to lying about news given column inches and air time about “fake news”?
Obama couldn’t leave well enough alone and had Rolling Stone create fake news. From BizPacReview.com:
Obama tells ‘Rolling Stone’ Dems lost partly because ‘Fox News is in every bar and restaurant’
by Michael Dorstewitz
In a post-election interview with “Rolling Stone,” President Obama blamed his party’s failure to reach out to blue-collar workers on the proliferation of 24-hour cable news — specifically Fox News Channel.
“Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country,” Obama said.
Throughout all of this, however, please note the recurring theme. At no time can fault be laid at the feet of the Demorats or Hillary Clinton for any reason whatsoever. And, of course, Obama is incorrect because CNN or HLN is on in every bar or lounge or waiting area across the nation, period. Obama lies and Rolling Stone helps create fake news.
Hillary Clinton, Brian Williams, the MSM, Barack Obama having the temerity to lecture me about fake news? I mean, honest to God, you can’t write this shite.
Speaking of God, just when you thought “fake news” couldn’t get any more stupid, it got more stupid when Pope Francis weighed in. When you compare “fake news” to coprophagia, you simply look the moron. Note to Pope Francis: stick to God and leave the coprophagia to the AMM.
Let us not forget the biggest, most shameful lies were started by Leftists and then promulgated by Leftist media such as, say, Obama’s insistence that if we like our doctor under the ACA we can keep our doctor whilst, simultaneously, Jonathan Gruber was larfing it up in various meetings and conferences explaining how it was all a massive “ruse for the rubes.” Ben Rhodes reveled in how Obama’s actual anti-Israel and pro-Muslim policies. These are lies of both commission and omission.
If you want a real hoot, read the Kelly Riddell article at the Washington Times entitled “Top 10 ‘real’ news stories that turned out to be fake.” She skewers the shite out of Obama, Ferguson, BLM (“hands up don’t shoot”), the Iran Deal negotiated with “moderate Iranians,” Bowe Bergdahl’s exchange, Benghazi and the video, climate change and hurricanes, Fidel Castro was a great guy with fabulous free Cuban healthcare, cops are killing blacks at an unprecedented racist rate, Steve Bannon is a white supremacist and the biggest LIE of all: Trump will lose horribly to Hillary Clinton.
The bottom line is this: the American Media Maggots are quaking and frightened to their very core. They are now the thing they accused George Bush of being: incurious. They no longer ask questions. They’d rather the government provide their talking points. So now their livelihoods, their credibility (though the vast number of “journalists” in any given newsroom couldn’t likely spell or define the word), their cash flow is on the line. Their very survival.
No one “owns” the truth. Not the Right, not the Left. And like anything else that is consumed, the phrase caveat emptor pervades. If you cannot detect actual “fake news” then you resemble a Stegosaurus: a walnut for a brain and a ganglion of nerves in your hips to make your legs work.
One must be a wise consumer of news. And beware.
Because, American Media Maggots, no one trusts you any more.
“You voted Trump,” the mob screams, “You gonna pay for that shit.”
Another woman shouts “beat his ass,” while another man is heard laughing before remarking, “Don’t vote Trump.”
Here, ladies and gentlemen, is a crime in progress heavily documented by the suspects themselves, young black urban males. See the photograph above. In California this would be 211 PC – Robbery, and 215 PC – Carjacking. Both are felonies. Information indicates this occurred Wednesday in Chicago.
Here is the evidence. Now it is up to the local police jurisdictions to investigate, as well as the FBI and DOJ for the concomitant hate crimes involved. It is also up to the American Media Maggots to place this video on television, newspapers and the internet in order to bring the suspects to justice for the felonious hate crimes. Here is the original Facebook URL, as I provide the first clues: https://www.facebook.com/pookie.slim.5/posts/988115401334756
Now you know why Americans hate the media, distrust the FBI and the DOJ, and know the game is rigged for Leftists and the politically correct elites. Now you know why Donald Trump was elected. You also know why the above incident occurred on Wednesday.
Imagine if this were your father, your cousin, your brother, your uncle, your grandfather.
Racism is a two-way street. And no one is equal until all are equal.
You cannot write the words “radical Muslim terrorist” on Facebook.
I still find it so terribly odd that Islam is the greatest enemy of freedom, the greatest enemy of Leftists, the greatest enemy of women, the greatest enemy of secularism, the greatest enemy of the LGBT community — and yet Mark Zuckerberg as a Leftist does his level best to stroke Islam, utilizing only the finest of rare lubricants.
Above, ISIS throws gays off the roofs of buildings. Ah, the peace and tolerance of Islam.
Note to so-called “moderate Muslims.” You either start to step up and let your voices be heard against the barbarians, or you’ll soon be lumped into the crowd with them.
In this case, perhaps it is time to heed Newt Gingrich. Persons believing in Sharia Law — and that is 51% OF MUSLIMS IN AMERICA — should not be here in America as, truly, Sharia Law is completely incompatible with freedom and the tenets of the United States of America.
It is time to start drawing some logical lines, ladies and gentlemen.
Before you start to lose more of your sons or your daughters or your wives or your husbands in a mall, on the street, at a major sporting event, to more devices, tools, trucks, guns, IEDs, bomb vests and the like at the hands of Islamic terrorists.
You know, the people that Barack Hussein Obama and Mark Zuckerberg don’t believe exist.
