  • CNN’S SANDERS:MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN TAKES US BACK TO SLAVERY AND INTERNMENT CAMPS FOR THE CHINESE

    Sanders said, “I do not think that every single Trump supporter is racist. But it is — we have to be real and understand that the populism around Donald Trump’s campaign was intrinsically tied to racism. it was intrinsically tied to making people that were not white working-class people the other. Make America Great Again takes us back — people that look like me, takes us back to a time when we were in slavery, when we were in chains, when we worked on plantations, internment camps for the Chinese.

    During a shouting matching Thursday night between top aides of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the President-elect’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway summed up a key reason for why my Democratic Party lost – and will likely continue to lose. “There’s a difference for voters between what offends you and what affects you.” To understand what she meant, look to the recent developments in Indiana. Millions of voters in the Rust Belt are in awe as 1,100 of their fellow blue-collar workers at Carrier narrowly missed being laid off. Instead of training Mexican replacements, these Hoosiers are celebrating an American paycheck....

Some marketers, however, are heading for the exits, directing their advertising dollars away from Breitbart amid the publication’s call for a boycott against Kellogg’s (K), which has pulled its ads from the site.

Obama considers media to be a central focus of his next chapter, these sources say, though exactly what form that will take — a show streaming on Netflix, a web series on a comedy site or something else — remains unclear. Obama has gone so far as to discuss launching his own media company, according to one source with knowledge of the...

Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one. Then what? If anything could cause panic among liberals, progressives, and the media (apologies for the redundancy), that's it.

    Tyler DurdenDecember 1, 2016 Submitted by Martin Armstrong via ArmstrongEconomics.com Gallup first began asking if Americans trusted the mainstream media in 1972. America’s trust and confidence in mainstream media stood at its highest level back in 1976 at 72%. Of course, that was due to the investigative journalism regarding Vietnam, and naturally Woodward and Berstein, with the Watergate scandal. Following that period, the media began to attack the right with Reagan. By the late 1990s, the Americans’ trust in the media fell steadily into the low to mid 50% level. Following 2005, the trust in mainstream media dropped into the...

    With an anti-establishment figure poised to assume the presidency, isn’t it time to put anti-establishment media in the White House briefing room? Other than sacrificing the .1 percent of positive coverage Donald Trump might otherwise get from the mainstream media, it’s hard to see a downside.As it stands right now, the establishment media (emedia) practically has a monopoly on access to the president. As Ari Fleischer, former press secretary for President G.W.

But is that really true?

    As the days have ticked past since the U.S. election, its implications, especially for the press, have been interpreted with agonizing slowness. The polls, so inaccurate, yet uniformly revealed public disrespect for the press. Ninety per cent of conventional press was hostile to Donald Trump, and 90 per cent of polling organizations predicted a comfortable Clinton victory. As there was no substantive argument for the re-election of the Democrats, their entire campaign was to slag off Trump. The servile press deluged Trump’s followers with disparagements, and generally signed on to Hillary Clinton’s dismissal of 30 million Trump supporters as a...

Russia’s increasingly sophisticated propaganda machinery — including thousands of botnets, teams of paid human “trolls,” and networks of websites and social-media accounts — echoed and amplified right-wing sites across the Internet as they portrayed Clinton as a criminal hiding potentially fatal health problems and preparing to hand control of the nation to...

    CNN and others, QUIT telling our leaders who to denounce or silence, etc. because we didn't vote for these people so YOU could tell them what to do and negate the results of the election. We voted to get something done about illegal immigration and their involvement and voting in our elections, which is something no other country would tolerate, not soft pedal it. We voted for a ban on muslim immigration and severe restrictions on what they can do while living here and the influence they can have (they hate us). We voted for fiscal responsibility. We voted for...

  • Trump's brilliance

    11/22/2016 7:13:44 AM PST · by djf · 36 replies
    Here is the essence of Trump's brilliance. The hell with the MSM!!! He continues to release Youtube videos where he spells out EXACTLY what he wants. And when the media complains, he basically gives them a middle finger and says when they start to report on him fairly, he might talk to them! This means no more of the media slandering him and no more of the media simply playing a ten second spot and making people think that's all he is about... Trump can spell it all out and DOES spell it all out in his vids! Brilliant!

    MSNBC's Katy Tur complains that Donald Trump may avoid the media to "spin the truth in his favor" "without the filter of the press." From a roundtable with MSNBC reporters Tamron Hall, Katy Tur and Kristen Welker Monday morning: KATY TUR, MSNBC: Donald Trump is going to try to do things his own way. We know he has already used Twitter to his advantage in that sense and try to get out his message without the filter of the press. That way Donald Twitter can say what he wants to say. Sometimes, spin the truth in his favor. TAMRON HALL,...
