MSM ,,, America’s Pravda

2018 February 6
by bc3b

We seem to be patterning ourselves after the failed Soviet Union. The FBI has become more like the KGB and the media has become Pravda. Actually that’s an insult to Pravda. Since the Soviet era Pravda has cleaned up its act and is far more trustworthy than CNN or NBC News these days.

Whazt’s the difference between today’s MSM and the Soviet-ear Pravda? Not much. Primarily no one is holding a gun to the head of George Stephanopoulos, Jake Tapper, Chris Cuomo, Lester Holt and Company forcing them to tell false narratives to the American People. They do it knowingly and willingly. The MSM colludes with Deep State and the Democratic Party on a daily basis.

Case in point: Stephanopoulos introducing the “GOP War on Women” meme at the 2012 GOP New Hampshire Primary debate. Does anyone actually believe Stephanopoulos and the Democrats weren’t in collusion? Anyone with an IQ over 50 that is.

Chris Cuomo and Mika Brzezinski – hardly MENSA candidates – have openly admitted on the air that the media’s job isn’t to provide information, but rather to control information and public opinion.

Two perfect examples over the weekend:

The first was Josh Campbell, an FBI agent that wrote an op/ed in the New York Times telling how he was leaving the Bureau because politicians were unfairly attacking the agency. Sounds like a highly moral and principled man. A closer look shows Campbell was a favorite of former FBI Director James Comey and a special assistant on Comey’s staff. Now we learn he has accepted a job as CNN’s new law enforcement analyst. So, he isn’t so highly principled after all. He is simply taking a high-paying gig at CNN so he can cover for his buddies at upper levels of the FBI, who are breaking the law, violating the rights of ordinary citizens and working to undermine our government.

Campbell comes across as kind of a metrosexual girly man. You have to remember that the majority of today’s FBI never face danger of any kind. They are bureaucrats like Campbell and Peter Strzok. The greatest danger Strzok ever faced was probably Lisa Page’s husband.

The second story is about the hit and run death of Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson. Jackson was an overachiever – a walk-on at Georgia Southern and an undrafted player who made it to the NFL. The accident occurred at 4AM Sunday morning on the shoulder of I-70. Jackson likely had been out partying and did the responsible thing – contacted Uber for a ride home.

Jackson felt ill and the driver pulled off to the side of I-70 and got out to help Jackson. A Ford F-150, driven by a drunken, unliscensed illegal alien from Guatemala (two deportations and one previous DUI). The media realized it couldn’t bury the story of an NFL player being killed by a drunk driver, but it went into damage control. The AP reported solely that Jackson and nthe Uber driver were killed when hit by a drunken, unlicensed driver of a Ford F-150. No mention of the driver’s illegal status or even his name. When the media omits a perp’s name, it’s likely an obviously Hispanic of black name just as when it omits a crooked politician’s party affiliation, he/she is a Democrat.

Without illegal aliens, Edwin Jackson, Kate Stienle and thousands of other US citizens would still be alive. But, the media doesn’t report facts about illegal aliens, just heart-breaking sob stories about deportations and families being torn apart.

Why does anyone believe the media?

    bc3b, as soon as I saw the title of your post I thought the EXACT same thing you noted in the first paragraph:
    Actually that’s an insult to Pravda. Since the Soviet era Pravda has cleaned up its act and is far more trustworthy than CNN or NBC News these days.”

    Hell, even in the days of the Soviet Union Pravda occasionally told the truth. And even when they didn’t (which was most of the time) they had the decency to just OUTRIGHT LIE. None of this SPIN that our media engages in.

    Trump weighs in on Jackson’s death:

    Donald J. Trump

    @realDonaldTrump

    So disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed @Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!

    bc3b, in re. your question: “Why does anyone believe the media?”

    Only those hearing EXACTLY what they want to hear will “believe” it…and even then, many of them KNOW they are getting only a half-truth at best. BUT, they convince themselves the LIE or HALF-TRUTH is being told for the “Greater Good”.

    All of this is fertilizer for tyranny.

    JR –

    The US media includes many of the most dishonest people in the world. So-called journalists no longer want to report the news. They want to change the world.

    It’s been that way since Watergate.

    So you know, they’ll probably do what they usually do, ignore the will of their voters yet again.

    And the problem is …?

    One of the most enjoyable flights ever was a Trans International Airlines charter. They flew troops to/from Vietnam in the 1970s – incredibly hot stewardesses in yellow mini dresses and white boots.

    In the 1970s Eastern Airlines allowed stews to wear mini skirts, but they had to be approved by a senior stewardess. If their legs weren’t great, they weren’t granted permission.

    yes, it’s a trap…but I think Trump can catch THEM in it. Yes, the media will take the Democrat spin as gospel, no matter what Trump does…but he will simply go directly to the American people.

    “… but he will simply go directly to the American people.”

    Twitter has become a tool by Trump that the Left had not expected.

    10,

    A problem yes. First order opportunity? No.

    The big one is an SoS discovery ala Nunes memo, ‘Phase II’. The opportunity presents itself to possibly —

    * Take down Clinton.
    * That take down would prevent a Chlesea run, destroy the Clinton Foundation and materially cripple the DNC at a funding level for at least a decade.
    * Damage Obama.
    * That take down would prevent Obama’s shadow government efforts from bearing any fruit as funding again dries up.
    * Retire Schiff who is carrying Clinton’s water.

    It should be acted on.

    I’m seeing multiple articles of Dem candidates loaded with money.
    DNC is broke, RNC is flush. Small money donations on the Dem side are going directly to the candidates.
    https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/287916/
    More than 40 House Republican incumbents were outraised in the final quarter of 2017 by one — or several — of their Democratic opponents, according to the latest round of fundraising numbers. And of that group, more than a dozen had less cash on hand than their Democratic challengers.

    For the GOP, here’s the really disturbing part: The trendline is getting worse, not better. Despite the myriad advantages of incumbency and control of Congress, there are more House members with less cash on hand than their Democratic challengers than the quarter before.

    NorCalJim –

    Trump beat Hillary while spending half the money. The key is convincing voters that the Democrats hate the American working class and linking Pelosi to House candidates.

    15, Excellent point. If Repubs would stand up for Americans the Dems would melt away.
    But it’s worth remembering there are plenty of SJWs dedicating their lives and bank accounts to evil purposes.

    LA Office had farewell parties for Josh Campbell announcing he was leaving for CNN. So, why wasn’t the NY Times honest enough to say he quit to go to CNN rather than giving the impression he quit with no job?

    14 – Similar here.. it was an open thread but made apt comparison with dem now and Tea’s prior with regard to the direct giving. They’re down, but in no way out.

    The MSM may be (okay, IS) America’s Pravda.

    But under Obama (and maybe before) the FBI morphed almost without notice into the KGB.

    And the FBI lovebirds are providing the evidence:
