I think a lot of people would like to know. Have the intel agencies become politicized?
How Steve Bannon won the election with one brilliant idea
So let’s talk about “fake news.”
As you are likely aware, in the wake of the Trump victory there has been a desperate attempt to come to terms with why the Clinton machine lost despite having essentially all of the #oldmedia on its side. Let’s take a moment and review how biased toward Hillary Clinton (and her machine) the #oldmedia actually was.
Below only represents a tiny fraction of the stories we featured on the pro-Establishment and pro-Clinton propaganda push from the powers that be in the #oldmedia,
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.
Washington is an incestuous little town in many respects.
It is not the role of the media to “stop” anyone from running for or winning the American presidency. That some would argue that it is should worry Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike. The media is to report, sometimes to opine, but certainly not derail (even if it could) a candidacy just because a certain group of people finds a particular candidate distasteful.
That there are those in the media seriously making the case that the media needs to “stop”
As I have said before I believe I have seen first hand how “biased” the crony media can be. But it’s a little different than how some conservatives portray the bias. They see often only the leftward bent. But it is a special kind of leftward bent in the crony media, one which is very pro-corporate. NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The LA Times, all the old media is solidly left of center. And each one of these outlets have corporate masters.
By now most of you have probably seen the video of Mr. Ramos interupting Donald Trump and Trump removing the the guy because he wouldn’t wait his turn.
And even after this Trump still let Ramos back in and let him ask questions so long as Ramos followed the rules. But by grandstanding the way he did Ramos exposed for all to see that he is not a journalist but an activist. He should be treated as such going forward.
“This clearly came from a bad place.”
So he lied. Everyone does it. Right? That makes it OK then, right?
I certainly hope not. Williams lied and he should be fired. There are no 2 ways about it. There is no defense of what he did. There is no “misremembering” going on here. The NBC anchor is very clearly a liar.
And yet some people will defend him. Why?
Another (not so) shocking report from the dark shadows of the #cronymedia on its coverage of Obamacare.
Even many of my liberal friends now acknowledge a strong statist bias in the #oldmedia. It’s not just how stories are reported but perhaps more importantly WHAT STORIES are reported.
I’m sure the people in this village don’t care about money either.
It must be hard to stay in a half million dollar per year part-time (very part-time) job when you just can’t seem to care about money.
Chelsea’s like Mother Theresa.
How very nice for NBC to have helped out this young person in this way. We can think of plenty of other young people who would also be grateful for a job, even one less well paying.
