Campaign shows the banality of the press

We no longer have a free press. The last vestige of a media independent of the government disappeared when Roger Ailes left the Fox News building. Campaign coverage this year is devoid of any policy discussion as debate moderators concentrate on trivia rather than a real discussion of national security, the economy, or the continual trade and federal government deficits. These were matters last seriously discussed twenty years ago. The media now will not mention even Obamacare, Iraq, or Afghanistan.

Trump brings those issues up in every speech. The press reports on the hecklers and the occasional verbal gaffe. The press is too immature today to deal with anything heavier than infotainment. Trivial Pursuit is no longer a parlor game, but rather the object of today's political press.

Witness the sudden news on Friday from a tape of a boast by Trump eleven years ago. The Official Media used it to divert attention from the release of transcripts of Hillary's speeches and promises to big banks.

The press believes it must protect her at all costs. She is a continuation of a regime aimed at turning America into a feeble banana republic. George Herbert Walker Bush began this turnaround when he turned the Party of Reagan into a pack of mealy mouthed cowards and apologists.

Not one single major newspaper endorses Trump, as media donors to Clinton continue their smear campaign against Trump. They have too much invested in Clinton to allow an usurper to win. The media bosses all believe fiercely in a fascist state where the government uses regulation to protect big companies from competition, while doling out huge subsidies.

I use as an example the Keystone pipeline ban. The pipeline threatened Warren Buffett's monopoly on shipping oil from the Bakken Field in North Dakota. He rented this regime to block that.

As for subsidies, the Solyndra loan guarantee cost taxpayers a cool half-billion bucks. Who was Solyndra? A company run by billionaire George Kaiser who ponied up a half-million for the Obama campaign. That's a thousand-fold return on investment.

The Murdoch sons took over Fox News this summer, leaving us with no legitimate opposition to the liberal media. Those anti-Trump screeds disguised as editorials in newspapers that "always" backed the Republican merely are the public outing of newspapers that were co-opted by liberals long ago. The clutching of pearls over Trump using the word pussy was bad kabuki theater. The New York Daily News published the word in bold capital letters on its cover on Saturday.

And of course, Trump's apology was roundly ignored as the press eagerly carried out the regime's instructions to pile on -- and eclipse the very damaging revelations about Clinton.

No policy discussion.

No bad news about Clinton.

It's Pravda 2016.

Has the media killed Trump?

I hope not. They think they have. They also thought they killed his nomination chances in April when he lost Wisconsin.

We shall see.

  1. Democrat minions with By-Lines. Our TV-press media is near-totally corrupt. Our man, Don Surber, is not. That's why we're here.

    1. It was a Democrat apology in which he wrapped a reminder of Willie's many rapes.

  3. They haven't beaten Trump. The public has sided with him on this.

    Ryan was booed off the stage yesterday, there was an impromptu rally of support in front of Trump Tower where even the cops cheered, "Go Trump".

    Remember the nude pic of Melania posted by a NeverTrumper who supported the One True Ted? Remember what happened next?

    This ain't over by a damned sight.

    1. Yup.Yup yup yup. Good post E. What this media shit is doing right now - and they're too stupid to realize it - is just stokin the fire for Trump supporters. Stokin the fire. The game's been rigged from the beginning, but guess what, pussies? We're changing the rules now. And if you don't like it, tough shit.

  4. I have to mention:

    I live in the San Francisco Bay area and wouldn't dare to put a trump bumper sticker on my car, 'inviting' key scratches.

    However I have seen a few TRUMP lawn signs - but not a SINGLE 'Hillary' sign. Not one!

  6. Don: You expressed my now record-level of contempt for the American press perfectly. My vote Nob. 8th will not be Republican. My vote Nov. 8th will not be Trump. My vote Nov. 8th will be anti-media. Damn them all to hell.

  7. In this election one of Trump's problems is he is not rich enough to influence the corporations that in fact are the "press" to support him. He did not buy a toy newspaper and brand his slaves with a large red A or purchase 17% of the stock of a money losing but famous NY paper just for personal prestige in his own shithole country nor does he have a controlling interest in NBC so gets to play golf with Obama every month. There are many many others.. To them he will just stand in the way of good deals and the security only the promise of immunity for the lawless can now provide, something Obama and his putative successors, the Clintons, have proven they can deliver at will even into Hoover's previously unbreached Fortress of Law and Order. This election, more than any I can remember, is about freeing the self. Will enough people find it in there interest to vote for a guy who says he will try to get them a good job to create more self reliance or someone who wants a good job for herself and her very rich friends but only fresh chains with better locks for her servants and enemies alike? In her speeches to GS she declared her blood loyalty to them and they to her. If the electorate cannot care about that true oath of office she took there, it unfortunately deserves its bondage, from which, this time, it may never escape.

  8. The Liberal press are not as bad as the NeverTrumps because we don't expect better from them, but some NeverTrump self-proclaimed Conservative savants are the real cancer in the Roll-Over Party. One of these "Conservatives" on another opinion site has actually called for Trump to resign, for Pence to move up and for Lindsey Graham to move into the VP slot. Then later when someone comes out with a story that Pence as an adolescent once used the word "boobies" they will clutch their pearles and call for him to step down in favor of Lindsey Gramnesty.
    We have met the enemy and he is us.

  9. We are witnessing the total corruption of the press, the government, and both political parties. So sad to see how far our Republic has fallen over the last 30 years.
