Media does not want our trust

Media-ite reported on a petty fight between WaPo and CNN over Russiagate, a conspiracy between Obama and the media to lie about Trump in order to spy on Trump.

Neither outlet has apologized for lying to the American public for 4 years.

No one has.

They are hanging on to their Pulitzer Prizes like a junkie hanging onto a needle.

But a few newspapers made a few stealth edits online long after the stories libeled President Trump by the pack of journalists. WaPo staffers pretend that makes them holier than CNN.

Media-ite reported, "Washington Post’s Erik Wemple Scorches Brian Stelter and CNN Over Coverage of Steele Dossier: ‘Journalistic Abdication.’"

Abdication? From what? Being king of the liars.

Media-ite cited a column by Wemple.

He wrote, "A federal indictment unsealed on Nov. 4 against Igor Danchenko, the main collector for the Steele dossier on alleged Trump-Russia coordination, brought that already-discredited document back into the public conversation. Key claims in the indictment, furthermore, snowballed into a big media story, raising specific concerns about reports in the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and ABC News — as well as more general concerns about how outlets such as MSNBC, CNN, McClatchy and Mother Jones handled the story.

"Yet 'Reliable Sources,' Brian Stelter’s Sunday media program on CNN, hasn’t found air time for the Steele dossier. There have been no mentions of the document over the past three editions of the program, though there has been chatter about how Fox mogul Rupert Murdoch may approach the 2024 election and Stephen K. Bannon’s podcast.

"We asked Stelter to explain the dossier’s omission. 'No on the record comment,' replied the stickler for public transparency via DM."

This is fussiness by two self-appointed media critics who in reality serve as PR for their outlets. Stelter's job is to mock Fox on a weekly basis and Wemple's job is to fuss about the failings of everyone but himself.

Where's his column demanding the Washington Post apologize and return its Pulitzer?

After all, if WaPo could force Janet Cooke to turn in her Pulitzer and find another line of work, why can't WaPo do the same to this generation of liars?

The fact is the media no longer cares about its credibility or the public's trust or the truth. If the media did, the promoters of and collaborators in Obama's Russiagate Lie would be drummed out of the business like the New York Times canned Jayson Blair.

Jeff Bezos, owner of WaPo, and Carlos Slim, benefactor of NYT, do not care about the truth. They love the power of the press to shape the public discourse. Their newspapers trade in disinformation and misinformation all aimed at disabling America, and turning it into a banana republic because that is much easier to control than a constitutional republic is.

People in the DC bubble knew WaPo and NYT were lying all along. No one cares. The public no longer matters, only those inside the Deep State do.

Stelter may believe that the media must win back the public's trust because he seems a tad slow on the uptake.

But the truth is the media does not care if it is believed. Lies sell. Lies are power. Lies are easier to report than the truth is.

  1. Lies are actually harder because over time, you have to recall what the lie was. Truth is easier to remember.

    1. Lies aren't harder, just lie about the lie. Blame the public for not tuning them out.

    2. They have to remember the lies only long enough, the public's attention span is relatively short.

  2. I am convinced the Mr. Potato Head you can buy at WalMart has more brains than the Mr. Potato Head on CNN.

    Stelter’s sources are as reliable as a Yugo.

  3. Trump's new media company has great potential. I hope like hell the people running it won't sabotage it, like his many appointees did his presidency.

    4. When Ed comments on the issues, he makes pretty good sense most of the time. He likes Trump, so at least he's not evil. But, his personal attacks are just plain goofy. They don't makes any sense. Maybe he's one of those people with a split personality. Anyway, without a note from his doctor, we'll never know.

  4. The short list:

    The Kyle Rittenhouse story, the Russia Collusion Hoax, the Freddie Gray Hoax, the Jussie Smollett Hoax, Michael Avenatti, the fire extinguisher that didn’t kill Brian Sicknick, “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot, the rape that didn’t happen at the University of Virginia, the Russia Bounty Hoax, the Hunter Biden laptop story, the lab-leak theory, the Covington Kids.

  6. “Winston worked in the RECORDS DEPARTMENT (a single branch of the Ministry of Truth) editing and writing for The Times. He dictated into a machine called a Speakwrite. Winston would receive articles or news-items which for one reason or another it was thought necessary to alter, or, in Newspeak, rectify. If, for example, the Ministry of Plenty forecast a surplus, and in reality the result was grossly less, Winston’s job was to change previous versions so the old version would agree with the new one.”--The Prophet Orwell

  7. The next GOP president needs to point blank - and very publicly - announce that since these media outlets are essentially democrat party communication arms and not media entities they will no longer have WH press passes and will no longer travel with the president.
