The anti-Trump, George Soros sponsored Media Matters playbook for all to see, Download it while you can

David Brock and George Soros were tightly tied in with the Obama White House. Then they got slammed by Trump. Since being demolished they’ve coordinated an effort to derail the current president.

It’s spin. It’s political information warfare. Media Matters was the de facto Ministry of Information for Obama (and his sponsors). And they don’t like that they got housed. They don’t like that the everyday American raised their voice.

Trump ain’t perfect but at least he isn’t sponsored by George Soros like Obama and Hillary were.

Media Matters, de facto Ministry of Information for President Obama runs headline; ‘The Media Outlets Poised To Become Trump’s Personal Propaganda Machine’

They have a point. Many of these media outlets (which are mostly small in relative terms) will be inclined to like Trump. But Media Matters needs to take a chill pill. Every major old media outlet with the exception of FOX and The Wall Street Journal have long been propaganda outfits for the corporatist Left (There is a non-corporatist Left media, in our opinion a more honest Left, Democracy Now! would be an example.) and for Obama specifically.

MIT study illustrates the insular nature of #OLDMEDIA journalists

As this data appears to show, much of the #oldmedia operates within an echo chamber. This of course is probably not news for most ACC readers. For many of us the echo chamber effect in the #oldmedia seems patently obvious. There have been dozens of stories we’ve touched on here over the years, of significant consequence, which were/are largely ignored by the #oldmedia. These stories are typically ones that are critical of the establishment, of which the #oldmedia, the #cronymedia are a part.

NPR says no more live interviews with conservatives (So they can be edited to avoid any ‘controversial’ remarks)

I’m sorry but I thought that National Public Radio was paid for by taxpayers, of which many, if not the majority might be called “conservative.”

It should be noted that the co-founder of this website Hunter Lewis, co-founder of Cambridge Associates a global investment firm, was once interview by Steve Inskeep at NPR. In the 2007 interview Lewis warned that the world was headed for a Federal Reserve created Crash. Inskeep didn’t like Lewis’s take and so the interview was spiked.

David Brock Again: Money Laundering Scheme Exposed – 14 Pro-Clinton Super PACs & Non-Profits Implicated

This is diabolical. David Brock, head of the de facto Ministry of Information Media Matters and all around crony apologist for Soros, Obama, and Clinton has a crazy thing going according to this report. Talk about churning a book of business. This is how to get rich in Washington DC.

Telemundo Stages Protesters At #NeverTrump Protest In San Diego (VIDEO)

Image: Screengrab

As we have said many times before we at ACC are generally for immigration. We are a “nation of immigrants” as is oft repeated. I am of Italian and Irish descent for the record. We are also completely neutral on the presidential election and all elections. But we do focus on cronyism and crony media is a big problem.

Below we see how narratives are crafted. There are perhaps 50 protesters max in this shot, yet the videographer stages his shot to create the impression of many more.

Mediaite: David Brock (Of Soros sponsored Media Matters) Officially Goes Loco with NY Times ‘Conservative Propaganda’ Slam

You know things are getting a bit weird when “progressives” (well one very odd progressive) start accusing the New York Times, The Times, you know, The New York Times of being a conservative mouthpiece. That’s like saying Fox is pulling out the stops for Bernie Sanders. It is ludicrous. But hey, that’s David Brock.

Politico gets confidential campaign memo: Secret effort to sell Hillary Clinton to rich liberals

The preferred nominee in San Francisco?

This is a very interesting and illuminating article, though if one has been following what’s been going on with Ms. Clinton lately it is not surprising. It should be noted that the fundraising bogey appears to have been cut in half from $1 billion to a mere (sic) $500 million. That is very significant.

Ms. Clinton is not lighting the world on fire for many rich lefties and her campaign in clearly concerned.

Stephanopoulos Flap Exposes Partisan Divide on Media Bias

I think Mr. Ziegler is too kind here. He gives ‘liberals’ kind of a pass on defending Stephanopoulos, saying essentially that though it’s not OK that they (I am writing in the broadest sense here) don’t see that giving money to the Clinton Foundation by a news anchor is wrong, it is ever-the-less to be expected.

Perhaps. But it should’t be expected.

For too long the crony media have been tolerated simply because the people who understand that the old media (the crony media) is biased toward collectivism and is chock full of bovine dung just accepted this fact.

James Carville to write for Soros funded Media Matters

The good old days.

Oh James Carville, it’s been too long since you were last on the scene. Good to see that you are jumping right in to the coming election campaign and joining the George Soros funded propaganda outfit Media Matters. That seems about right.

The attached article from Politico I think sets the tone for what is to come.

President Obama Rewards former head of propaganda mill with a political nomination

Let’s be totally clear. Media Matters is a propaganda outfit. That’s all that it is. Create a narrative. Disseminate to MSNBC and fellow travelers. Attack the the attackers of said propaganda. Repeat. This is the Media Matters MO.

David Brock, the founder of Media Matters had (has?) de facto cabinet level access in the Obama White House. He was (is?) essentially the “Minster of Information.”

And now the president has nominated Matthew Butler,

Obama White House mouthpiece and Soros funded Media Matters won’t let its own workers unionize

Funny, he’s not for you.

This is an interesting little dust up. The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is pressuring the de facto propaganda outfit for the White House to let its workers unionize. But get this, Media Matters management is fighting the effort hard.

More Crony Media: Sebelius reached out to major media to head off bad press before Obamacare launch

We have noted many times the very close relationship between the current White House and the #oldmedia. The mainstream news outlets (really less and less mainstream with each passing day) have been stalwart allies of this president and have been generally positively disposed toward this president (and candidate) from the get go. Controlling the message has been key to keeping Obama afloat.

More Crony Media: Unions Paid MSNBC’s Schultz $177,000 in 2012, $75,000 in 2013

As we have said in the past MSNBC is what modern propaganda looks like. Media Matters issues talking points (often with the input of the Obama White House) and MSNBC spits them back out. (To a smaller and  smaller audience it should be added.)
