Skip to comments.Dr. Camille Paglia: Democrats Are Colluding With The Media to Create Chaos
Posted on 05/19/2017 11:14:18 AM PDT by drewh
Camille Paglia is much more worried about the media than about the steady string of Trump-related scandals they claim to be uncovering.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Paglia excoriated the press for its coverage of Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his alleged sharing of classified information with Russian officials.
Fresh off a spirited panel with Christina Hoff Sommers hosted by the Independent Women's Forum, the iconic feminist dissident, who serves as a professor of media studies at the University of the Arts, accused journalists of colluding with the Democratic Party in an effort to damage the Trump administration.
"Democrats are doing this in collusion with the media obviously, because they just want to create chaos," she said when asked to comment on the aforementioned stories. "They want to completely obliterate any sense that the Trump administration is making any progress on anything."
The popular author, whose latest book was released in March, pointed to early struggles experienced by previous presidential administrations to illustrate the media's bias against Trump. "Obama's administration for the first six months was chaos," Paglia recalled. "Bill Clinton's was chaos for six months. Nobody holds that against a new person."
"Those two guys had actually been politicians!" she continued, noting Trump's relative inexperience with government operations.
Paglia's assessment of media bias in the Trump era leaves little room for optimism. "I am appalled at the behavior of the media," she declared. "It's the collapse of journalism."
As the Examiner reported in April, Paglia, who cast her ballot for Jill Stein last November, is predicting Trump will win re-election in 2020. "I feel like the Democrats have overplayed their hand," she said at the time.
What Next In The Trump/Comey Story?

Though the news cycle has moved through plenty of additional scandals in the past month, it appears as though Paglia's assessment of the president's prospects has not changed.
"I'm looking forward to voting Democrat again," the acclaimed philosopher explained. "But the point is I feel that the media has so utterly lost its credibility that I think people are going to vote against the media again."
A European hacker installed a virus on a head FBI officials computer using a phishing email.
He began seeing 45 chats between about 15 people on the Dark Web (TOR). He didn’t understand what they were talking about until they talked about RM being announced soon.
A couple hours later he heard Robert Mueller announced as Special Counsel to investigate Trump and knew he was onto something big.
The names are all in code, but one in particular stands out, AEWP. Either Adam Entos at Washington Post or Assoc Editor Washington Post (Bob Woodward) make sense.
“S” may stand for Schumer, that is what people are thinking.
Actually, it’s the media who is colluding with the Dems to cause chaos.
Love Camille. I don’t think she’s a doc, though. She quit school after earning her Masters with Sexual Persona.
Nothing remotely LIKE this would be going on if in fact America had an unbiased and professional MSM.
Since Democrats are assured nothing they do or say will be challenged, they do and say whatever they want...never mind HOW groundless, irrational or laughable their behavior and language is. Their friends in the MSM will accept and amplify everything to the nth degree...No questions asked.
Think about it. If just once any of them were asked to substantiate their drivel... how long would their nonsense last? Gee-then before you know it, we’d have an ACTUAL MSM keeping everyone honest and adult!
Wow! Camille old girl! You've cracked the case.
Better call Sherlocke...he could use your deductive reasoning skills.
Find where these people are, use a MOAB, and let God sort them out.
Many of us have known for some time that the FBI is a sick, sick joke, but the real-world news (as opposed to the fake parallel universe of the media and deep state) these days makes my skin crawl. The US government is at war against we the people, our Constitution, and our duly-elected President.
This war needs a LOT of casualties on the part of the bad guys. Exposure, prosecution, and public hanging.
Article must be getting hammered.
This is outright treason (or sedition), working against a President. These people are risking life in prison.
The hacker implied he knows who he spying on. These people could be outed.
At the very least, we now know the Washington Post is involved in this, and not in honest reporting.
Can you post the article? Keeps crashing for me.
Re: post 3 - Holy Cow!
I’ll post the article here, and then give me a couple minutes and I’ll get screen caps of the Chatroom text.
The possible existence of a subversive American deep state has captivated the attention of political observers and supporters of President Trump for months, and for the first time, evidence has allegedly surfaced that casts a light on the shadowy operations of a group many claim is working to bring down the Presidency.
This information comes as President Trump is battling his worst week in Washington so far. In the past seven days, a constant stream of leaks and unsourced stories have sent the Trump White House into a tail-spin, and calls for his impeachment have grown.
On Wednesday night, just hours after the Dept. of Justice appointed a Special Prosecutor to handle the Trump/Russia probe, a series of screenshots began spreading around the Dark Web, a colloquial term for the portion of the Internet that is unlisted in search engines and requires special encrypted software to access. The Dark Web is known as the Internet home to those who wish to communicate anonymously and hacker groups like Anonymous.
An unidentified user going by FreshCamel posted on several Dark Web message boards Wednesday evening asking other users to help him make sense of communications he had intercepted on a messaging platform called Gliph, a secure messaging service that uses end-to-end encryption to prevent communications from being tracked back to those who sent them.
This individual did not provide much context regarding the source of these communications, but American users quickly put the pieces together.
On initial inspection, the screenshots, which are printed in their entirety below, appear to be taken from a short, highly-coded conversation held between approximately 5 individuals in the United States intelligence community on Wednesday, May 17th from 2:31 pm to 3:15 pm.
Third Estate Newsgroups Contributing Editor Micah Bull made contact with FreshCamel late Wednesday night via an encrypted email service, and this individual confirmed that he had accessed the personal computer of an employee at the FBI sometime around April 24th. This access had been obtained through a falsified phishing email that installed spyware on this employees computer when opened. FreshCamel declined to identify this individual for the time being, but confirmed that he or she is a higher-level employee in the Bureau.
According to FreshCamel, this individuals computer is used to join a secured chat channel on Gliph approximately four times per week for exactly 45 minutes each session. Activity has increased in recent days, FreshCamel confirmed. For weeks, FreshCamel casually monitored these chats without realizing what they were, but when a topic of discussion in Wednesdays chat became a major news story in the United States just hours after the chat was closed, he decided to seek help.
Assuming what you posted is true, that is sedition.
