Taking the media to the woodshed

Trump is basically giving the media the long overdue whippings they never got as children.  The entire liberal party is full of entitled adults who were never disciplined, and have been given whatever they wanted all their lives.  Now that they are being opposed, and they find out there is more to life than money and power, they are throwing a royal temper tantrum.

 

It was great to see Trump rip them as fake news.  CNN, ABC, the New York Slimes, Huffy Puffy, Politico, and the Washington Compost are all full of nonsense.  That people actually paid for college degrees to be able to artfully and masterfully lie is another testament to our failing colleges.  Whenever I hear from these sources, I trust the opposite of what they say is usually true.  Or, if what they say is slightly true, there is another, even bigger truth, they are leaving out. Their lying polls, the evil surmising they do is a disgrace, and that they are a completely clueless about it is a disgrace.

 

Trump handled it correctly though.  He addressed it at CPAC this morning, saying he was going to do something about it.  Just like a kid who gets in trouble at school gets told my mom that Dad is going to have a talk with the kid when he gets home.  The kid has to sit in terror until Dad gets home.  I know, I was that kid:).  Then, Sean Spicer excludes the lying media sources from the press conference.   Does the media evaluate themselves, and do some meditating?  Oh no.  That is why they lie in the first place, they do little self introspection, and talk twice as much as they listen, forgetting the reason why the good Lord gave them two ears and one mouth.  

 

Of course, the media throws another royal temper tantrum, screaming and shouting that Trump is trying to destroy free speech.  It's hilarious.  Trump loves the media, as long as they don't lie constantly and deceive America as these news sources tirelessly do.  If you had guests who come to your home and constantly lie to other people about what goes on in your home and it's negative, see how fond you are of having them over.  So Trump is perfectly justified.  It's sad when you have grown adults who act like children, and it's even sadder that tens of millions of Americans believe this ridiculous and absurd nonsense from the aforementioned networks.

 

Why do Americans believe it?  Because they have no clue about America's history, or our values.  So, it' s quite simple to control those who know a little.

 

A perfect example is a woman on here who is lesbian and devoted BLM racist.  Anything CNN, the NY Slimes, Washington Compost, or other liberal sources says is gospel to her.  Yes, Ms. Jacy Topps, I'm talking about you to your face.  I went on her post and tried to reason with her, and she rewards me by doing the usual liberal fascist move, she deletes all my comments.  She's arrogant about it too. Doesn't even explain why, thinks she can just get rid of ideas that she doesn't like without explanation.  The latest Nurse Ratched on WB.  They keep coming.  I guess she's coming to take Merrily Lying Fraud's place.  Of course, like most liberals they shy away from face to face debate. She knows better than to come on my post without profanity, because she will be destroyed in a debate, and that is something she can't risk.  

 

Anyhow, it's time America wakes up, because the media has been lying to us for long enough.  If we are too stupid to figure out the lies, than we deserve to be slaves on the Democrat plantation, just like Ms. Topps, and all the other tens of millions of Democrats are.

My wife gets mad at me when I call the news 'fake.'  You see she grew up watching these networks and seeing the same faces presenting the news.  The sources of the New York Times, etc. are the same.  Fox cable channel is the new kid on the block.  I use to watch One American News but that is not on the latest cable provider's list.  The 'fake' news say they are fair and caring, the two morals of the Democratic party.  Those are the topics of their news.  The protesters on our streets are wanting fairness, and they have compassion, caring for those that see themselves as trapped in the wrong body.   It is only fair that they use the bathroom they identify with.  If is fair and caring that government takes for those with more then they need and give it to those that have little.  If is fair that a child brought here illegally and know no other culture should stay and it is caring that their parents also stay to take care of the child.  So my wife is mad at me when I say all of this "fairness and caring is Fake."

Media created this monster called Trump.  It thought that it could control it, put it back in its cage when its usefulness was done.  It loosed this monster of change on the American people.  Now, it has no choice but to kill it anyway it can.
 
The previous monster it loosed upon the world was well behaved.  It was like a loose cannon upon a ship, wrecking havoc with every move. But it would return to its cage every time the media whistled.  It was its favorite pet.
 
It created it the ultimate creature of destruction.  It was supposed to be the end of times monster.  It was the monster that would turn the US republic on its head...nay the world on its head.  The rough beast slouched forward to be born.  I am reminded of the words of WB Yeats:
 
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere   
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst   
Are full of passionate intensity.
 
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.   
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out   
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert   
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,   
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,   
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it   
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.   
The darkness drops again; but now I know   
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,   
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,   
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
 
But the beast was aborted in the final hour.  Another media creation was loosed.  It has turned on its master.  Will it be destroyed or will the media become its pet? Only time will tell.

Critique is essential, but there has to be mutual respect between Trump and the media, it's better for the country!  Instead of generalizing about the media, Trump and other administration officials should specifically detail which company is responsible for a particular lie or fake news story.  Trump should point out which news organizations are doing a better job and the ones he most agrees with.
Billy Roper Added Feb 25, 2017 - 9:01am
Dino, that kind of specificity doesn't work on the audience, voters, typical Americans. They don't have the intellect, time, or patience to go through lists of reporters and reams of stories, they just need to have patterns pointed out to them, and the pattern of systemic media bias is obvious.
Bill Kamps Added Feb 25, 2017 - 9:13am
It is funny how  the media equates criticism with censoring free speech.  Those are not the same thing.  The media is free to SAY anything it wants, but its access to Trump is being limited, because they dont tell the truth.  No one is changing the laws about free speech, they are changing the rules about unlimited access.   They want the  freedom to say  what they want, but they dont want free speech to extend to criticism of the press.
 
Remember how  they often say they cant divulge their sources, but that might limit their access ?  Now they are learning that lying also limits their access.  They know the game, they have played it on others, now the game is being played on them.
 
I have no sympathy for the press.  They promote sensationalism, even when the story is mundane.  They often fail to provide context.  They fan the  flames of hysteria when one person dies from Ebola, they fan the flames of hysteria when an unarmed Russian plane come close to one our ships in the Black Sea, with no context about WHY one of our ships is in the Black Sea, a place near and dear to Russia.  If a Russian surface ship were in the Gulf of Mexico, the US would be doing more than sending a plane for a look-see. 
 
The press likes to think it is impartial, and it has never been impartial.  It used to routinely hide information from the citizens "for the good of the country".  Now it spins the information to form a point of view.  It is desperately trying to keep control while the internet sources of news point out how it is failing to provide information, and often spinning information in the wrong direction.

re " Whenever I hear from these sources, I trust the opposite of what they say is usually true. "
  I never watch mainstream but occasionally pick up a paper, to learn what isn't true because that does get you closer to the truth sometimes.
 
re " That is why they lie in the first place, they do little self introspection, and talk twice as much as they listen, forgetting the reason why the good Lord gave them two ears and one mouth."
  A common problem with Lefties in general.
 
re "I went on her post and tried to reason with her, and she rewards me by doing the usual liberal fascist move, she deletes all my comments. "
 Three snowflake articles came up on here and I put a little comment about how Bolshevism parallels their beliefs and the posts were removed.
 
re "If we are too stupid to figure out the lies, " I don't think it is stupidity. I think a lot of people don't want to risk careers, family relations or any other relationship by posting things that are obvious. (I've lost a few friends and heard the phrase "my grandfather was in a concentration camp and was a survivor" - which is actually evidence for my side in that)
Some don't want to be taken away to a mental hospital when the Bolsheviks become overt rather than covert.

A lot of these lefties are just plain nuts, as many doctors (Leo Rossiter) has pointed out.

Leroy is correct the media along with oodles of help from the Democratic Party created Trump now they are trying to kill the monster they have created.  But remember the media is now controlled by rich plutocrats that want the population stupid, desperate, fearful, gullible, clueless and leaderless.  However, there is so much good information on YouTube channels that is not Democratic or Republican bent.  Turn off the idiot box and open your mind and you will see cable news for the court jesters they actually are.

Following lies will lead us to our doom, and the unethical media is rolling out the red carpet. There are measures we can take, the first being not giving them any money, because without money they can't survive. The second would be to do anything and everything to confront them in every manner possible as the liars that they are. They think we're stupid, let's prove them wrong.
Mike Haluska Added Feb 25, 2017 - 1:26pm
The media thinks they can take down the President of the United States of America - when he hasn't been in office long enough to even find all the bathrooms in the White House.  His "crime" defeating Hillary Clinton and making them all look like lying fools - which they are!
 
My money is on the President - the first one we have had in a long time with a spine and willingness to give as good as he gets.
George N Romey Added Feb 25, 2017 - 1:45pm
Mike Trump is no match for the media.  They hold more power than any President could ever hope to hold.  Trump should be by passing them and using YouTube.  As long as Trump engages the media they have power over him.  No tweeting about the media.  Don't mention them.  Provide Americans a weekly update via a YouTube channel.  Do press interviews with the non MSM.
Jeff Jackson Added Feb 25, 2017 - 2:55pm
It looks like Trump is deliberately ignoring some of the media, and they deserve it. What is disturbing is when the other media people come to the defense of the media outlets that lie. They aren't policing themselves, which makes them all guilty. Those who support lies are as guilty as those who lie, or as the French say: "Those who profit from crime are guilty of it."
Ryan Messano Added Feb 25, 2017 - 2:56pm
You are right, Thomas.  Not sure why American women  are so easily deceived by the Democrat message.  But women need men to lead as they never have before.  The Democrats have re packaged the vicious, savage, cruel and inhumane Communism into "fairness", "equality", and "inclusion", and if we don't watch out we are all going to be in the Democrat lunatic asylum under the watchful eye of the Democrat elite Nurse Ratched's.  I'd prefer to die.  I'm knocking on doors for 5 hours today, and will be knocking on 175 doors every day, 6 days a week,and in one year, I will have knocked on all 44,000 doors in my town.  It's time for Republicans to get off their duffs and mobilize and crush the Democrat party completely.  We have the truth, but we need to reach out.  If Jesus sat at home and watched the idiot box, Christianity would be dead today.  He told his followers to knock on doors.  The two fastest growing religions today, both cults, JW's and Mormons, knock on doors.  And Keith Ellison and Tom Perez the DNC frontrunners knocked on tens of thousands of doors and organized the Democrat party to prosperity in CA and MN.  It's time to rip the power away from the unscrupulous Demonrats.  They have no idea what they are doing, and are a bunch of crooks and charlatans.
Ryan Messano Added Feb 25, 2017 - 2:57pm
Yes, Leroy.  Trump had to have a media background to win, unfortunately.  The time is now to wean Americans from their idiot boxes and lying media sources.  Trump is attacking the monster now, but he needs help.  It's a many headed hydra, and it needs to be destroyed  or it will destroy us.  
Ryan Messano Added Feb 25, 2017 - 2:58pm
Oil and water don't mix, Dino, and the lying media cannot be compromised with.  This is total war, they need to be shown their place, as do the tens of millions of deluded Americans who identify as Democrats.  Agreed, Billy!
Ryan Messano Added Feb 25, 2017 - 3:04pm
Excellent, Bill, the media is a lying disgrace, and that they are allowed to lie continuously and libel, slander, and evil surmise continuously is an abhorrent testament to American's gullibility, and naivete.  
Ryan Messano Added Feb 25, 2017 - 3:07pm
Thank you Doug, completely agree with your analysis.  I really have no idea why communism attracts such a large percentage of Jews to leadership positions.  It makes no sense to me.  Jews would be the last people who I would think this would appeal to.  From Marx, to today's liberal party, you can barely find a communist without finding a Jew mixed into it somewhere.  And they are not practicing Jews either, which makes it even stranger.  And there are many great Jews in our nation, like Mark Levin, Michael Savage, and it makes no sense for the Jews to support the Democrats as the Democrats favor the same Islamic movement, that hates Jews and would exterminate them given the chance.

Amen, Jeff, we are being led to our doom. it's up to us to stand up against this passionately and consistently, or the future of America is in danger.

That's a fundamental misunderstanding of the Trumpanzees' attacks on the press. They aren't based on any actual problem with the press; they're a protofascist attack on the entire concept of a free press. The above is a Mein Kampf-like garbage article that tries to rationalize it.

George - have you seen the credibility rating polls of the media???  They're lower than Congress!!!

Really? Where do you get your news from J. Riddle?  Which biographies of Hitler or histories of the Third Reich did you read?  Au contraire, the presstitutes are nearly all corrupt, and haven't really got anything worthwhile to pay attention to.  The entire "Russia rigged the election" was a total hoax, and there is not a shred of evidence to support it, other than the Democrat bureaucrat infiltrated intelligence agencies saying so.  I remember they were the same one's telling us about WMD's in 2003, and had us go marching off to the stupid war ,which made the Worst President in American history, Obama, possible.  Trump is correct for attacking the press.  They are ceaseless liars and communists, and can't get the truth if it slapped them in the face.  Comparing Trump to Mein Kampf, no offense, is just ignorant.  There is completely no comparison.

   After looking at the Talmud and reading their hate for Christianity, learning why in The Eclipse Of Reason (Adorno/Horkheimer) and reading Adornos other works, it isn't hard to explain.
  They don't like Muslims, but especially do not like Christians "Our God is Lucifer" - its in the Talmud. The Talmud is the book of the Pharisees. They pit their enemies against one another.

It doesn’t get much more frightening than a president that upset with media coverage of him decides to “do something” about it.  This is how all dictators and strongmen abuse power, they control the media.  If the media is lying or delivering fake news, Trump needs to do nothing, the damage will be done by you and I choosing not to pay attention to whomever is doing the lying.  As it relates to lying poll numbers, that is not the fault of the media as they reported the poll numbers accurately.  You see there is a difference between a poll and an actual election.  The first is easy to gauge, the second it requires someone to actually get in their car, wait in a long line and do what they said they were going to do. 
Bill Kamps Added Feb 26, 2017 - 6:59am
Utpal, there is a big difference between criticizing the press and controlling the press.  Criticizing any organization, is protected by the Constitution, while controlling the press would require that laws be passed and the Constitution be changed.
 
You say:   If the media is lying or delivering fake news, Trump needs to do nothing, the damage will be done by you and I choosing not to pay attention to whomever is doing the lying. 
 
Really ? how will you know who is lying, if no one challenges the reporting ?  Without Wikileaks, would you have known the DNC rigged the primaries in favor of Clinton ?  Without Snowden, would you have known the NSA was spying on Americans ?   The media should have been bringing us these stories.  We shouldnt  have to rely on people breaking the law in order for citizens to find out the truth.
 
The press has been getting a free pass for decades, hiding information from the people.  Now finally we have alternative sources of information, which challenges the narrative the media puts out.
 
There is nothing wrong with criticizing the press, or limiting their access when they report falsely.  Trump is not trying to change the Constitution to eliminate the free press, or pass laws that censor what the press prints.  He is merely criticizing them, which he like any citizen is free to do. 
Billy Roper Added Feb 26, 2017 - 7:46am
It's unfortunate that we had to have an outsider, whomever it was, provide some transparency on how the controlled media and the left wing colluded in the last election, but it's better to know, than not.

Utpal - your comment:
 
"It doesn’t get much more frightening than a president that upset with media coverage of him decides to “do something” about it."
 
merits a response.  Actually, a mainstream media that issues 98% of the news content the people read is being controlled entirely by a single political party (Democrats) is much more "frightening" than a sitting President demanding that the media print the truth and act as legitimate journalists. 
 
Whether its continual forecasting throughout the race that "Trump has no chance" to publishing false "polls" to publishing stolen 20 year old tax returns to claiming Trump removed MLK's bust from the Oval Office - the media has been a tool of the left.  Trump simply points out the obvious to anyone with an objective brain in their skull!
