As a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat Party, the mainstream media corruptly echoes Democrat talking points with such dedication and focus that they’ve completely missed the fact that is so glaringly obvious to Americans that President Trump is using their corruption against them to keep them focused on his preferred topics and distracted with Democrat conspiracy theories such as Russian election interference that outs them as mediacrats.
Conservatives began documenting leftist media bias back in the 1990s by pointing out the subtle shading and spin journalist sympathizers injected into their reporting. These leftist sympathizers have always existed in modern media, and television has always been an outlet favorable to leftist journalism as emotional video narratives are better at swaying public opinion than emotional pleas from a newscaster. Instead of risking being labeled as biased with an emotional appeal, leftist journalists could play a video clip under the auspices of giving the viewer a glimpse into the actual events on the scene even if the video had been heavily edited beforehand to maximize its emotional appeal and content bias.
There was a time when journalists feared being outed as biased in the belief that such a label could harm one’s career aspects. Media outlets touted their objectivity and trustworthiness fearing that consumers would desert them if these aspects were called into question. These outlets took great pains to hide their bias in subtlety that allowed a plausible deniability if it was noticed at all. Conservatives faced an uphill battle in convincing Americans that bias existed and were forced to present lengthy explanations of suspected bias due to the subtlety of its use. Slowly, Americans began to recognize and understand the subtle use of bias employed in journalism to favor the leftist view. As Americans became more aware of this journalistic bias their cynicism rose proportionately along with their increased awareness.
The rise of partisanship in America over the last couple of decades has rendered these fears obsolete as Americans now search for media outlets catering to their particular political bias. Much savvier to the employment of bias to sway public opinion, Americans now shun outlets biased towards opposition views in favor of those whose bias reflects their own political thinking. Media outlets have recognized this trend and now actually promote their bias to attract their preferred audience. In 2010, MSNBC began promoting itself as politically progressive in its “Lean Forward” ad campaign proudly embracing its leftist political bias where once networks had feared the bias label.
At no time has leftist media bias been more evident than in the campaign and election of Donald Trump as president in 2016. Leftist mediacrats have gone full snowflake in their attempts to smear, undermine, obstruct, harass, and overthrow President Trump as he sets about the task of draining the establishment political swamp in Washington, DC. Their efforts kicked off with Donald Trump’s announcement that he would seek the Republican nomination as president and highlighted that immigration would be a key issue of his campaign. Both parties were seeking to avoid any mention of immigration as an issue knowing that Americans were aghast at their efforts to promote open borders globalism, and Trump’s highlight of immigration tapped into this angst.
The mediacrats swung into action with their favored technique of creating a fake news narrative of widespread negative reaction to Trump’s remarks about Mexican immigrants. Trump’s remarks were taken out of context, actually misreported as Trump saying something entirely different, and added to with multiple innuendoes being reported as fact. Trump’s actual remarks concerning Mexican immigrants were:
“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. Thank you. It’s true, and these are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably – probably – from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast.”
In language clearly understood and appreciated by most Americans, Trump made the point that we were getting a lot of illegal immigrants from Mexico that were unvetted and were not the type of people we wanted in this country. Trump avoided absolutes in describing criminal elements infiltrating our country, but the mediacrats created the fake narrative that he had. Savvy to mediacrat tactics, Trump rode out the initial wave of fake news outrage until the underlying theme of his remarks – illegal immigration – became the story and replaced the mediacrat fake news outrage narrative over the next week.
Existing comfortably inside their liberal echo chamber, the mediacrats could not possibly entertain the idea that their favored candidate, Hillary Clinton, could possibly lose to someone they so thoroughly hated. Blinded by their bias, the mediacrats failed miserably at recognizing the tremendous angst gripping the middle of the country they derisively referred to as “flyover country.” Hillary’s loss stunned the mediacrats and devastated the leftists they had convinced of her invincibility. Surely, they believed, such a devastating loss had to be the work of nefarious forces and couldn’t possibly be because Americans had rejected a candidate they viewed as the obvious choice.
Unable to accept that Democrats had nominated a flawed candidate voters viewed as an untrustworthy criminal with no political or personal charisma who studiously avoided discussion of the issues while promoting her only qualification as being a woman in the belief that identity politics would win out, the mediacrats began promoting the fake news narrative that the Russians had somehow influenced the election in collusion with the Trump campaign due to Trump often mentioning that America should find ways to work with Russian President Vladimir Putin to defeat radical Islamic terrorism. Distraught snowflakes immediately latched on to this fake news narrative to soothe their feelings of rejection by the American people while the mediacrats promoted its widespread dissemination.
It just so happened that retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn was advising the Trump campaign on national security and was tapped to become the National Security Advisor in the Trump administration. While acting as a Trump campaign advisor, Flynn had also been working simultaneously on behalf of the Turkish government to undermine exiled Muslim cleric and critic of Turkish President Recep Erdoğan Fethullah Gülen. In addition, Flynn had several contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in which he might have discussed relaxation of Russian sanctions by the incoming Trump administration. Once revelation of Flynn’s contacts with Russian ambassador Kislyak were reported, the mediacrats flew into a full frenzy hyping their fortunate chance stumble onto actual Russian involvement with a member of the Trump transition team, if not actual involvement in the election. Flynn was forced to resign as he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contact with the Russian ambassador, and thus the fake mediacrat narrative of Russian election hacking was kept alive.
However, President Trump was able to hoist the corrupt mediacrats on their own petard by tweeting that Barack Obama had spied on him during the campaign while president. After recovering from their initial outrage over Trump accusing their hero of engaging in a criminal conspiracy, the mediacrats set about castigating President Trump as a liar in an attempt to force him to recant his accusation. During the subsequent investigation, President Trump was interviewed by Fox News journalist Tucker Carlson where Trump explained that his source for his claims of Obama having his phones tapped was the mediacrats themselves as he pointed to a January 20th New York Times article “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides.” President Trump’s revelation of the mediacrats themselves as his source forced the NY Times to modify that headline to remove “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides” and replace it with “Intercepted Russian Communications Part of Inquiry into Trump Associates” in a stunning mediacrat cover up of their bias. President Trump put the mediacrats between a rock and a hard place in that either they had lied in reporting wiretapped data as the source for their investigations meaning that they engaged in fake news after all, or that the Obama administration had spied on Trump in violation of the law.
As the mediacrats busied themselves attacking President Trump with the smug arrogance that they were finally about to make him eat his words, it was revealed by Congressman Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, that information provided to the committee by the NSA indicated that conversations by members of the Trump transition team had been obtained by the NSA in routine monitoring of communications of previously targeted foreign entities. Nunes went on to explain that normally, conversations involving Americans and foreign entities are transcribed with the names of Americans masked, or blocked out, and that only some 20 government officials have the authority to unmask these names. Nunes then detailed the fact that the names of the Americans, all members of Trump’s transition team, had been illegally unmasked by some government official. This bombshell revelation had the mediacrats wishing they had dropped the fake news Russian election hacking narrative way before it had ever been allowed to reach this point and scrambling to spin the narrative away from former President Obama.
In their attempt to tarnish Donald Trump’s presidency with innuendoes of illegitimacy built around their fake news Russian election hacking narrative, the mediacrats have unwittingly uncovered criminal wrongdoing by members of the Obama administration that might have dire ramifications for Obama himself if followed to their logical conclusion. Congressman Nunes is continuing the investigation into possible criminal acts involving the unmasking of Americans caught up in NSA surveillance. Given that the number of government officials in a position to order this unmasking in relatively small at around twenty, it’s only a matter of time before the finger is pointed at the guilty party.
President Trump has managed to turn the corruption of the mediacrats against them and use it to uncover the criminal conspiracy they have launched against his administration. It appears that the mediacrats have not yet learned to leave President Trump alone as they are obviously outmatched in this game of wits. The most newsworthy item the mediacrats have managed to convey to the American people is their own utter corruption and dishonesty when it comes to keeping the public informed of the news. Once again, it appears President Trump was correct all along in alleging that the Obama administration illegally spied on his campaign team with the clear implication that it was done to assist the Clinton campaign and undermine the legitimacy of the Trump administration. The mediacrats have only themselves to thank for proving President Trump correct, and President Trump continues keeping them distracted with their own corruption.
