Every day I read some news site on the web it's about layoffs somewhere in the media.

Quote:
"In the last month, layoffs hit have MAD Magazine, Pride Media, Quartz, and Meredith, bringing the total number of media layoffs in 2019 to over 3,100, according to Business Insider's tally. The latest cuts follow layoff announcements at BuzzFeed, Verizon, Vice Media, McClatchy, Machinima, and Gannett the largest newspaper publisher in the US. It is estimated that between 2014 and 2017, some 5,000 media jobs were cut from the market. (July 15, 2019)"

Quote:
"More than 15,000 media jobs most of which came from news organizations were cut in 2018. Most of those job losses came from news organizations, however, where 11,878 people were laid off in 2018 a spike of 281 percent from 2017, when about 4,000 people in the industry were let go."

Any day now, the 2020 Democrat candidates will be calling for free Government Run news. You know, The Ministry of Truth like in 1984 (the book):

Quote:
"The Ministry of Truth is where lies are manufactured. Winston works here, rewriting old news articles to reflect the Party's latest version of reality and throwing the old articles down a "memory hole" where they are incinerated. The Ministry of Truth reflects the Party's belief that power is the only truth and that those with the power can make the "truth" into whatever they choose."

"The Trump campaign welcomed help from Russia."
"Donald Trump Jr. would love dirt on Hillary Clinton provided by Russians."
"Trump called on Russia to hack Clinton's emails."
"Members of the Trump campaign were trying to enrich themselves personally during the campaign and transition."
"Paul Manafort was trying to achieve debt forgiveness from a Russian oligarch."
"Michael Flynn was trying to make money from Turkey."
"Trump was trying to make money from a Trump Tower in Moscow."
"Numerous Trump associates lied about this including Flynn, Gates, Manafort, Cohen, and Papadopolous."
"Manafort encouraged others to lie."
"Russia wanted Trump to win the election."
"Russia informed Trump campaign officials of this intent."
"The Trump campaign lied to cover up their dealings with Russia during the campaign."

Source: Rolling Stone. Adam Schiff Used a Damning Portrait of Trump's Russia Connections."

If you read the Mueller report you will understand that his investigation had a narrow purview. The FBI was entrenched and was assigned to the counter intelligence aspect which encompasses the conspiracy aspect. If you read the report you will understand that Mueller could not indict a sitting president. If you read page 10 of the Mueller report you will understand why Mueller could not prove conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt.

" Some individuals invoked their 5th amendment right, some information was covered by legal privilege, individuals that testified provided false or incomplete information, some individuals lived abroad and documents were held outside of the United States, ans some associated with the Trump campaign deleted relevant communications and used encrypted apps that do not provide long term retention of communications."

If you read and understand the report you will see collusion. Why did Manafort share internal polling information with the Russian's? It's all there but it isn't up to a special counsel to provide the facts and remove a traitorous president. It's up to Congress and out Intel agencies. Mueller provides a road map of facts. The SDNY indicts, as does Congress.
Total and complete nonsense ... every last word of this rant is pure bovine excrement.

The truth is now being revealed, and as declassification of documentary evidence continues, what we now know to be undeniable facts are as follows:

1) there was an organized effort early in the presidential campaign cycle by the democrats and Clinton to illegally spy on their opposition ... the Trump Campaign team, utilizing high level persons, and Obama/Clinton loyalists within the US Intelligence and Law Enforcement communities, namely, the FBI, CIA, NSA, and the DOJ.

2). We now know that very early on, there were efforts to undermine the election, not by Russians, but by the Democrats and their loyalists within those Intelligence and LE communities, who themselves worked with foreign assets, like Christopher Steele, “former” MI-6, who was indeed in contact with Russian operatives, while crafting the phony “Steele Dossier”, paid for by the DNC and Clinton, through Fusion GPS.

3) we now know that very early on, there was a counterintelligence operation by the CIA-FBI targeting George Papodopolus , attempting to entrap him, by offering him access to dirt on Clinton, allegedly from Russian sources, to include using a “honeypot”, which ultimately failed. Transcripts of this operation have now uncovered exculpatory evidence of that failure, which was withheld from the FISA court as the petition was under consideration to grant FBI electronic surveillance authority of members of the Trump campaign.

4) we now know that James Comey continued this counterintelligence operation against Trump after his election, while lying to the President with regard to him being a target of the investigation, lying to Congress, and lying to the FISA Court, while using a spy inside the administration, and leaking classified information to members of the press. (Several Felonies committed here by Comey).

5) we now know that high level individuals at the FBI were conspiring to derail Trump’s campaign before (election tampering), and later appointed to lead the Russia Collusion investigation subsequent to Trump winning ( Sedition). We also know from text messages between these conspirators of their personal animus toward Trump and their devotion to Clinton. We also know from these messages that Obama wanted updates, meaning, this election tampering reached to the very top. We can also reasonably conclude that this phony Russia Collusion investigation was indeed the “backup plan” discussed in the aforementioned FBI agents text messages.

So, yes, their was indeed a massive and illegal effort to rig the 2016 presidential election, though not by the Russians trying to help Trump, but by high level criminals hell bent on insuring a Trump loss and a Clinton win. Those efforts did indeed include the use of foreign agents, including Russians and others with ties to the Russian government.

It isn't really news that MSM has lost credibility. Nor is it even controversial for anyone who pays attention.

I never believed the Mockingbird Media story about 4am talking points sent to the propaganda media until I started watching Fox News (not on that list). Hannity, Tucker, Laura Ingraham, will often string together The Talking Point of the Day. Each clip is a talking head from every network show spouting the same thing, the same way, the same day. As Tucker likes to point out, "It's quite a coincidence. " How can Left wing propagandists call themselves journalists when all they do is read what is put in front of them?

The Left assumes viewers just stick to one channel so don't notice, which may be true, sadly.

9. "I think the press has lost all credibility, much of it. But it's lost a big part of it. I mean, a very substantial part of it, lost all credibility."
So, the media has lost all credibility. Actually just most of the media. But all of the media has lost a big part of its credibility. Actually it's a "substantial" part of the media. But they've lost all credibility, that's for sure. Got it?
The press has had a LOWER approval rating then even Congress for DECADES for a reason.

A little outdated but still true


This helps to explain why there is so much bias in the media...


IF YOU HAD A HUNCH THE NEWS SYSTEM WAS SOMEWHAT RIGGED AND YOU COULDN'T PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT HELP YOU SOLVE THE PUZZLE.

ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser.

CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama's Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications.

ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney

ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama's Deputy Press Secretary

ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama's Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood

CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clinton's Deputy Secretary Tom Nides.

Ya think there might be a little bias in the news? Ya Think?
