WASHINGTON, December 14, 2017: Our lefty mainstream fake news media is currently in a losing battle with President Donald Trump. And the vast majority of Americans who distrust and detest them.
Recently, the media has gotten it wrong on a spate of stories. Whether it concerns Trump’s “collusion” with the Russians or the number of souls attending Trump’s populist “screw you authoritarian progressives” rallies around Trumplandia, U.S.A.
A spectacularly devastating fake news scoop
Writing for NBC News, Glenn Greenwald described CNN’s disastrously wrong story regarding Donald Trump’s access to Hillary Clinton’s incriminating emails before the WikiLeaks release. CNN, the leader in fake news, insists proved collusion between Trump and the Russian Intelligence services:
“It’s impossible to convey with words what a spectacularly devastating scoop CNN believed it had… they clearly believed they were delivering a near -fatal blow on the Trump/Russia collusion story. There was just one small problem with this story: it was fundamentally false, in the most embarrassing way possible. Hours after CNN broadcast its story – and then hyped it over and over and over – the Washington Post reported that CNN got the key fact of the story wrong.”
Trump was far more articulate in a tweet:
“CNN’s slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS. Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public. There are many outlets that are far more trusted than Fake News CNN. Their slogan should be CNN, THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS!”
Fake News: Worth less than the paper it’s printed on
It’s no secret that our vaunted news gatherers are in something of a financial pickle these days. The very newspaper chain I once worked for has laid off more than sixty percent of its workforce before putting their less profitable newspapers on the auction block.
But it’s unlikely they’ll find a buyer. Newspapers no longer offer a viable business model for investors.
After all, the “failing New York Times,” as the president calls them, received a $250 million emergency infusion of cash from the shady Mexican Billionaire Carlos Slim.
A cartel of lies supported by a cartel of drugs
You may recall that in 2011 WikiLeaks released an interesting email communication between Fred Burton of Strategic Forecasting, Inc., which provides international intelligence to the nation’s leading corporations, and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agent William F. Dionne:
Burton: “Billy, is the MX billionaire Carlos Slim linked to the narcos?”
Dionne: “Regarding your question, the MX telecommunications billionaire is.”
So, the next time the New York Times tells you to worry about collusion between Trump and the Russians, remember all the colluding going on between the Times and their billionaire front man for the Mexican cartels – the same cartels Barack Obama, the newspaper’s preferred presidential candidate of 2008, sold more than two thousand weapons to in Operation Fast and Furious.
Recently, former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman, Donna Brazile, wrote a book in which she said President Obama bankrupted her party. Brazile contends Hillary Clinton used the party’s financial insolvency to buy influence over its primary selection process and eventually its presidential nomination.
The media, like the Democratic Party it supports, is a money-losing proposition, unable to offer products – fake news and “Crooked Hillary” Clinton – that the public is willing to buy.
But the New York Times may have found a way out for dying organizations: find a shady sugar daddy with which to “collude” and don’t question the source of all their dirty money.
