Another day in the library 📚

Is The New York Times treasonous propaganda? Or just tantrum-throwing brats?

How silly is the New York Times? Do they think that they are smart enough to fool all of the people all of the time?

The New York Times is propaganda. It has an on-going spat with the US President, and truth be told, they got the Trump Machine going way back in 1976.

Trump wisely dumped the news media when he saw they collapsed and Twittered his way to the White House and the Times were in shock.

Denials that Twitter got him into power. One article accuses Trump of “hacking” the media. No, he bypassed you losers.

Just like millions of other people who flocked to Twitter and Facebook.

And ever since then, the Times has had a personal vendetta against the man who proved they are no longer relevant.

We can look at countless articles and columns that can only be described as wicked:

Trump the Anti-American

Trump Is Cracking Up

Trump: King of Chaos with this passage:

Rather, I believe that this chaos is the perpetual result of the absolute incompetence and idiocy of a preening philistine who has faked his way through life pretending that he knows more than he does and is tougher than he is.

Is It Time to Call Trump Mentally Ill?

The 25th Amendment Solution for Removing Trump

The People vs. Donald J. Trump

He is demonstrably unfit for office. What are we waiting for?

Who Decides Whether Trump Is Unfit to Govern?

Is Mr. Trump Nuts?

The Times even published a fictional story about his assassination.

This is abnormal behaviour. Ted Bundy is getting better press these days.

I cannot imagine too many national leaders who would tolerate this kind of relentless and unsubstantiated abuse from their press. Some would go so far as to call it treasonous as it openly encourages some loon to cause extreme harm to that leader.

If anyone disagrees, then let them put their comfort where their mouth is: for the next four years, they must allow their name to be placed in New York Times’ pieces with the same wording, implications, and intensities — and not say one word of complaint.

And if you think you are above reproach, we will let every bully, ex-lover or spouse, and enemy you ever had do the articles on you, day in and day out.

You will have a smile on your face as the world gets to read what other people think of you. No objecting, no explaining, no anger, no calling a single accusation a lie.

I could have plastered more, but the point has been made. The Times has gone beyond overkill. It is not a news product. It is a propagandistic one.

They can dish the obscene vitriol, but when the President pushes back, they lose their brain cell:

Trump Attacks The Times, in a Week of Unease for the American Press

You call the man evil and insane on a regular basis, and then you get in a tizzy because he calls you out for it? Why the unease? You employ extremist propagandistic measures and then you are shocked that your ways are coming back to you? Are you narcissists deluded? Are you nuts? Stupid?

Treasonous?

Or just spoiled brats?

The article is nothing more than a hypocritical tirade:

Even by his standards, President Trump’s biting attacks on the press this week stand out.

He has praised a libel lawsuit against The Washington Post, called for “retribution” against NBC for satirizing him on “Saturday Night Live” and, on Wednesday, issued his sharpest words yet against The New York Times, calling the newspaper “a true ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

So what? You called him a lot worse than that. The Washington Post deserved to be sued. For all the talk about poor teenagers getting shot and killed — they distorted an event and could have easily incited some unbalanced loon to harm Nick Sandmann. He will carry this scar for life.

And you are an enemy to the truth. You are an enemy to rationality. You are an enemy to face and demand to know why you have allowed such sickness to corrupt the information stream.

You are behaving like a cabal of vindictive psychopaths.

One upon a time you would have gone on a berserker rage on someone and they would have been seen as pariahs for life. Now, you do this extreme hate puking nonstop and you cannot make a dent.

Doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome? That’s the very definition of lunacy.

One day, sensibility will come back to fashion and people will read your propaganda, and shake their heads, wondering how a single person could have an ounce of respect for the New York Times.

I will tell them the truth: that you are predators and propagandists who lost you superpowers, and then became unhinged trying to grab it back.

But democracy had better ideas.

So did reality and the truth.

And then people will begin to chuckle, and laugh at the lies you spewed oh so very seriously.

And then they will wonder if you just were attacking the president or was this your modus operandi, and I will point them to all of your other sins, such as your famous bullshit story about “Weapons of Mass Destruction”, how often you crib from press releases, how you let Harvey Weinstein get a free pass and drooled over him, how you allowed con men to present themselves as business tycoons, fucking up countless lives in the process, and how you skewed coverage of other wars…

And I can already do that with a single red book.

I am still keeping tabs on your games and propaganda. It’s not hard: you keep using the same primitive feints.

You are just not the potent minions who could deliver the way you used to be.

And it must eat you alive…

Lara Logan says the things I have been saying for years. And writing books on.

I went into journalism to find out how and why it wasn’t doing what it was proclaiming it was doing.

In 2018, my book When Journalism was a Thing came out outlining it.


External image

The book was ignored by the press. I did three interviews in total, and it isn’t as if my publisher or me didn’t put it out there to be discussed. I had similar problems with OutFoxed and Don’t Believe It! back in 2005, but I still had more interviews for those than I did for this one.

Because I back up what I say with facts. Just look at my reference section if you want to play mind games so that you can knock it off.

Jill Abramson went after her old profession, but then got pummelled immediately.

Lara Logan is the next one in line, and she too is getting thrashed for it. Even in Variety, they cannot just report on her comments, they have to bullshit, too:

Logan’s “Hannity” comments come on the same day anchors at MSNBC and CNN, as well as prominent Democratic politicians, were found to have been targeted by a Maryland Coast Guard lieutenant after he was arrested on a firearms charge. CNN’s Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and Van Jones and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, Chris Hayes and Ari Melber were among the media figures cited in a computer file that prosecutors believe was a list of public figures targeted for racially and politically motivated attacks. 

So do actors, politicians, police, teenagers, and regular citizens all the time. The US doesn’t have regular school shootings because you don’t have that kind of garbage going on. You have a loon who was caught. Get over yourselves and stop avoiding the criticisms.

How many people has the press made targets because of their reportage? I noticed the Variety article didn’t spew about the $250 million dollar lawsuit filed against the Washington Post or all of the outlets that treated the Smollett hoax as if it were real. Very convenient.

While I agree with Logan that Western mainstream media is overwhelmingly limousine liberal, the bigger problem is the umempirical methods the press uses. Your plumber could have radically different politics than yours, but the leftie and the rightie will still fix your plumbing problems in the same way.

If there was true discipline in the profession, it wouldn’t matter: it would be able to creep in and taint the product.

But notice it is women who are standing up to the profession’s horrific and entrenched problems. This is the reason why we are seeing those kinds of attacks. The profession is a misogynistic one. France’s journalistic garbage is being exposed, but they aren’t in isolation by any means.

The profession is pure garbage. It shouldn’t be garbage. There is no logical or inevitable reason, but when you have undisciplined brats allowed to take control of the playroom, that’s what happens.

Change will not come from the profession. It will not come from universities. It will come, but not from the two places that should be doing it.

The Smollett Debacle is proof that the profession just spews propaganda and lies, not truths or reality. It is pure lunacy, and Logan’s critique truly doesn’t go far enough or deep enough…

‘It’s a miracle!’

I have regularly purchased newspapers in a attempt to keep up with what is going on in the world. If there is one thing that has bugged me in my recent endeavour to become more ‘in the know’, it is the use of the word miracle in news articles.

A simple search in the dictionary explains the use of the word: 

“an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency”

So why is it, that we are still using the word miracle for things that are easily explained because we, as people, are the ones doing all of the hard work. When a firefighter saves a puppy from a burning building, it isn’t a miracle. God did not go in there and save the adorable little pupper. The firefighter did. When doctors save a child’s life, it wasn’t divine intervention. It was science. Years and years of trial and error to perfect modern surgery’s and our understanding of human anatomy. 

Stop referring to the progress of modern medicine and the accomplishments of our fellow humans as a miracle. Take pride, yes pride, in your own abilities. They weren’t gifted to you by an imaginary deity. They are the product of humanities progress. Start  giving people the credit they deserve, instead of thanking God, thank them.

CNN’s hiring of [Trumpite Sarah Isgur] as political editor is even worse than it looks

If CNN could be truly fair-minded — thoughtfully impartial — it could serve a purpose in the campaign ahead. It could be one of the places you’d turn if you wanted to get the straight story on complex or contentious issues, away from the hyperpartisan cacophony.

But this move signals that no such thing will happen — or is even sought.

If you’re trying to deepen understanding, bridge the divide or do excellent journalism, this is one of the last moves you’d make.

As Columbia University journalism professor Bill Grueskin told me Tuesday, Isgur’s lack of journalistic expertise caused him to wonder “if Jeff Zucker would ever have brain surgery performed by a dentist…”

This is the same CNN, under the same leadership, that in 2016 hired the bullying and ultra-partisan Corey Lewandowski as a commentator after Trump fired him as campaign manager.

It’s the same CNN that this month inexplicably and foolishly gave Starbucks founder Howard Schultz a prime-time “town hall” event to promote his scattered notions of a run as an independent 2020 presidential candidate.

That Trump has spent the past two years mocking and endangering CNN’s journalistic staff makes Isgur’s hiring even more incomprehensible — and insulting…

At a time when so many talented and experienced journalists are out of work because of layoffs in a teetering industry, this makes even less sense. There are countless better choices out there.

Alternative artist, Gnash, spreads his positive vibes on this episode of The Adamantium Podcast. We discuss the release of his first studio album, We, the follow up to his three EPs: U, Me, and Us. We also talk about his musical roots, starting a career as a teenager, creating Billboard chart topping hits from his garage, connecting with his fans, and his Broken Hearts Club.

Intimidation, Pressure and Humiliation: Inside Trump’s Two-Year War on the Investigations Encircling Him - NYT

The full New York Times Write up on efforts to interfere with, ignore, or halt investigations is astonishing.

If youve been paying attention it isn’t shocking, but putting it all in order makes it clear how crazy things are. Possibly the craziest thing is that his interference has made the investigation larger, longer, and louder. If he participated, answered some questions and kept quiet, he (assuming total innocence) wouldn’t be talking about this anymore.

Kleptocrats' 'Ill-Gotten Fortunes' Are Being Parked In U.S. Real Estate

Atlantic journalist Franklin Foer says American real estate became a “giant magnet” for Russia’s kleptocratic fortunes after lobbyists pushed to allow anonymous shell companies to buy properties. 

FOER: So in 2017, Reuters did this survey of Trump Organization properties in Florida. And what they found was that of the about 2,000 units in those developments, a third of the units in his properties were sold to anonymous corporate vehicles where we’re unable to trace who actually owns the property.

GROSS: So there might be Russians in those properties.

FOER: Yeah. There’s a journalist who jokes Vladimir Putin could own those properties, and we wouldn’t know.

Head of Philippines news site arrested
Maria Ressa has been accused of "cyber-libel" over a report on a businessman's alleged ties to a former judge. Press freedom advocates see this as an attempt by the government to silence the news organisation. President Rodrigo Duterte has previously denied charges against her are politically motivated. This is the latest in a string of different allegations against Ms Ressa, whose website has been described as "fake news" by Mr Duterte.
