... we sure sound like political hacks. I am so sick of it. I used to enjoy 'political season' with a huge grin, a cheeseburger, and snicker as the
masses chased after this and that. This post is about the mainstream media (something I thought we as a community were called to scrutinize by nature)
and their representation of this news cycle. In specific, this post I will discuss my disgust in the anti-Trump rhetoric especially when it has hit
heights to insanity. When I see something wrong with the man’s actions, I will be among the first to criticize him. Let's get that straight.
There's 6 companies controlling all the mainstream, and alternative news spins agendas. "Alternative facts" and "Fake news" has been around since
the media at inception. This isn't new, but watching this news cycle it is obvious which candidate they favored and the lengths they went to
discredit the opposition. So I have compiled here a short laundry list of crap (yes CRAP) the MSM is feeding you and I see gobbled up all over this
- The claim: RUSSIA RIGGED THE ELECTION
- The implications: Trump is/will be a puppet president to Putin.
- The reality: There is some evidence that Russia may have been involved in hacking the DNC computers, however the
makes it difficult to
ascertain to what extent. You all remember
? The times the right was mocked for
warning about Russia? Now suddenly, Russia has become a talking point because RUSSIA RIGGED THE ELECTION, but not really? The fact is
we don't know
hacked into the DNC servers or to what extent if they did. The
FBI wasn't allowed near them
. If they did
they surely did not hack
into the voting machines and
rig the election. Assange states it
wasn't Russia at all
McAffe states it wan't Russia either
Craig Murray states it
still wasn't Russia.
But hey given the benefit of the doubt even if Russia did it
there's two things the MSM is ignoring 1) If Russia did hack, there's no way to link that to Trump. 2) If Russia did hack, you're shooting the
- The claim:
RUSSIA HACKED THE POWER GRID
- The implications: Russians, who helped Trump get elected, will KILL US ALL DOOM!!!!
- The reality: 3 year old
was found on a laptop that wasn't connected to any network system in a power company in Vermont that can not be tied to the Russians or
- The claim: RUSSIA HAS VIDEO OF TRUMP AND GOLDEN SHOWERS!
- The implications: Russia will be able to control Trump through
solidifying that Trump is a puppet for
- The reality: An
unverified error riddled report
was pandered to Buzzfeed (the same publication which helps you determine what type of potato you are) and though
used the word 'alleged' basically tried to pass this story off as real news. (Hint:
- The claim: Trump and Putin are close friends
- The implications: That Trump
is colluding with Putin
and will sell out the American People to Russia
- The reality: Trump and Putin
aren't friends, but the media would like you to think
. They are world leaders who are forced to work
- The claim: Fake News ... I mean Alternative Facts won Trump the election!
- The implication: Only
. They're never wrong and
never ever would lie to you. Trust us.
Other news sources are dangerous. The media will filter
- The reality: Come on guys. Really? I can't even begin to link to you how dangerous this is. We, as a community, can recognize this as propaganda,
I'd hope. Here goes. Six companies control the
in this country and feed it to the mass population to control the narrative. Alternative news, and citizen journalism have flaws. They
usually carry bias also. It is up to YOU to be a consumer of information and look at both sides and check facts. Do not eat what you're fed.
