“regularly scheduled press briefing has been delayed even further: WH press briefing scheduled for 12:30, then 1:45, now 3:15”

TRANSLATION: Jarrett was told CBS/NBC/ABC want an additional $75 Million.

How about the truth regarding the deaths of Seal Team VI discussed in yesterday’s National Press Club Conference? Revelations are in the video below:

It was time to shown them his horns, take the mask off and shown them the demon within - put fear into them. It’ll be interesting to see any “collaborative change” in narrative between the networks.

As a former reporter I will tell you that off the record is an excuse. There is no lay other than the law of continued access that stops a OTR comment from being reported. Period.

If the 'secret' Journ-O-list apparatchiks suffered no fallout after defending the Magic Negro's association with Rev.Wright, why should the regime fear repercussions when the same are now blatantly circling the wagons to cover his evil arse this time?

I’ll tell you something about Japan:

There’s something called “kisshya kai” —press pool. Groups in Japan are orderly, and they function like cartels —they keep things orderly and force markets to work in times of unusual stress, whereas a pure market might fail, in some sense.

But even if this is good for some markets, in others it’s bad. Like in the market for news —should groups of reporters regularly get together and decide in private what elements of breaking stories come out to the public...?

Because that is what they do with the MSM in Japan:

Groups of the really “pro” reporters in Japan feel so beholden to their government sources and to their journalistic group that they VERY rarely actually break stories. And so there is a quirk to Japanese political news —only the really “scummy” weekly rags (sorta like the Enquirer, but perhaps more like the Newspaper rages that would scream about Alien Space Babies found in watermelons) actually break major scandals.

And I see that same cartelized pattern at work in the USA, for at least 10 years now.

>> Why would reporters ever be invited to speak “off the record” by a politician?

What honest, self-respecting, independent reporter would PARTICIPATE, and keep it off the record?

As bad as this evil administration is, the fact that our “free press” are not really truth-seeking reporters at all is a far worse and more insidious problem. It endangers the Republic itself.

In fact, it’s because we have no truth-seeking press that we ended up with the blue-lipped Kenyan monkey in the first place.

Do you see the symbolism at work here? The off the record meeting is FLATTERING to MSM biggies because it’s a tacit admission that The Fifth Estate is a de-facto extension of The Establishment.

WHAT IF NIXON HAD OFFERED TO “CLEAR THINGS UP ABOUT THAT WATERGATE THING” WITH WOODWARD...?

Why do Age of Aquarius hippies now roust people from their Boston homes, frisk them, and throw them down the street?

You joke but I do not doubt this possible scenario. It's now 3:18PM; no open-to-all-the-press briefing yet today.

I used to work with a lib/punk rocker type. I laid out all the Dem abuses and asked him how thy fit his ethos? I then laid out conservative principles and re-asked the question.

He had a crisis of ‘faith’.
