Skip to comments.A Conspiracy So Immense: What will it take for the MSM to cover the progressive movement?

Lets pretend that in the spring of 2012 Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, John Engler of the Business Roundtable, Tim Phillips of Americans for Prosperity, and Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association began to organize an assembly of right-leaning groups.
Lets pretend that in the months since there had been not one but two meetings where these luminaries joined with representatives of Christians United For Israel, the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation, the Tea Party Express, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, and the American Petroleum Institute to discuss strategy and promote a series of structural reforms that would make it easier for them to advance conservative goals in Congress.
Lets pretend that by the time of the second meeting, which was held within sight of the White House, the coalition had grown to encompass some 36 different interest groups pledging millions of dollars.
How much press coverage would be devoted to this fictive cabal?
It is impossible to say. But is it not unreasonable to assume that our pretend meeting of the vast right-wing conspiracy would attract far more scrutiny than was devoted to the actual, real-life, believe-it-or-not inaugural meetings of the progressive Democracy Initiative? After all, no one seemed to know anything about those meetings, held in June and December 2012, until a writer for Mother Jones named Andy Kroll broke the story on Wednesday. As of this writing exactly two other people, a blogger for the Washington Monthly and a blogger for The Ed Show, have picked up Krolls story...

Man, I wish they would. It would give me some hope.
I take it it’s a left wing “cabal” that’s being suggested not a right wing because the groups mentioned are all over the place as far as positions go.... Surprize !
When it’s your objective to get your hands on the loot it don’t matter what label you give to your cause as long as it gets the loot.
The MSM is not going to “cover” the cabal. They ARE the cabal.
We’re screwed ping
The media is an aspect of the progressive movement. Its personnel policy follows the boundaries set by progressives, and the editorial policy reflects personnel policy. Media censorship takes place via the EEOC and similar state and local offices.
This is what you call a hostile take over, communist style. A bunch of legal mumbo jumboers turning a whole nation to be run like a corporation whose profits are not going to be used incidentally for freedom for feeding their benefits and hubris.
If there ever was a One Communist clenched fist, that is what these child meetings of pimps seem to have accomplished.
correction: are not going to be used incidentally for freedom but for feeding their benefits and hubris.
Who needs AlQaeda or London meetings of world terrorists spewing hate on America when we got this going on at home...
Yes. They were taught and trained by the same kind of people that brought obama up.
Remember the term "fifth column"? They probably don't teach about that in school anymore.
A cardinal technique of the fifth column is the infiltration of sympathizers into the entire fabric of the nation under attack and, particularly, into positions of policy decision and national defense. From such key posts, fifth-column activists exploit the fears of a people by spreading rumours and misinformation, as well as by employing the more standard techniques of espionage and sabotage.
Or at least the mouthpeace thereof.
The MSM is the central partner in the Progressive movement.
“What will it take for the MSM to cover the progressive movement?”
That can’t be a serious question. The MSM are the progressives.
They are my target. We’ve seen what can be done ala the Journal News when appropriate pressure is brought to bear. It needs to be done en masse and mainstream. Boycotts, protest, marches, outrage, whatever means available. These media chumps must be dethroned.
One thing is for sure: It won't be the mainstream media that holds the progressive movement to account.
The MSM is not going to cover the cabal. They ARE the cabal.
Coalitions of collectivists with a propaganda machine second to none looting the USA. Lots of targets for 300+ million Americans many of whom have not awakened, yet.
DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic. DISMANTLE their collectives, when necessary. DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic. Live - free - republic
Above all, if you wish to be strong, begin by rooting out every particle of socialism that may have crept into your legislation. - Bastiat
Great thread. Thanks to all posters (awakened Americans). Lots of targets, lots of work to do, and lots of satisfaction while doing it.
The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.,
Educate, aim, fire/DEFUND
