Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
It’s all just another day’s work for our fake news media. – In my weekly Tuesday afternoon radio spot on News Talk 93.1 FM in Montgomery, Alabama, hilarious host Greg Budell brought up the new Project Veritas video expose’ of CNN. Those undercover videos, recorded by a whistleblower employee who was fired on Monday, reveal all sorts of news-faking machinations that take place at the fakest fakety-fake fake news outlet of them all.
A video released late Monday contains various clips of CNN President Jeff Zucker exposing an obvious personal grudge against President Donald Trump, bashing him repeatedly, and holding regular 9:00 a.m. meetings at which Zucker and staff strategize how to slant and fake the day’s news. Here’s the video:
When Greg asked me if I thought there would be any internal repercussions against Zucker or other high-profile CNN employees as a result of these videos, I answered “no, because these videos don’t really come as a surprise to anyone.”
Seriously, does it surprise you even a little bit that Jeff Zucker hates Donald Trump, and holds daily staff meetings to plot ways to slant CNN’s fake news coverage to the President’s detriment and in favor of various Democrats? Haven’t we really known that had to be happening all along? As I told Greg, it’s not just CNN doing this – the same thing is happening every morning at ABC, NBC, CBS, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and most other national outlets.
Oh, and those 9:00 strategy meetings likely take place right after they’ve all spent an hour on their daily 8:00 conference calls with key Democrats, during which they agree to the day’s talking points script that will be parroted on TV, in the newspapers and by their employees on Twitter and other social media. How else would Rush Limbaugh be able to come up with those 3-minute-long montages of 50 fake journalists and talking heads using the exact same talking points, verbatim, several times each week?
This is nothing new: This Democrat/media daily coordination has been taking place for at least 25 years, probably longer. Back in 2009, when the folks at Politico were still attempting to run a fairly honest news reporting effort, they even reported on the daily talking points operation of the day, which the fake journalists referred to as “journo-list”:
For the past two years, several hundred left-leaning bloggers, political reporters, magazine writers, policy wonks and academics have talked stories and compared notes in an off-the-record online meeting space called JournoList…
POLITICO contacted nearly three dozen current JList members for this story. The majority either declined to comment or didn’t respond to interview requests — and then returned to JList to post items on why they wouldn’t be talking to POLITICO about what goes on there.
Again, every outlet in our fake news media has these daily strategy sessions, and uses the exact same talking points and narratives that are used by Democrat strategists and politicians. This can only happen if there is a daily coordination effort. Whether the coordination effort takes place in an online forum, via conference call or some other technological mechanism doesn’t really matter: The coordination is manifestly transparent due to the way the “news” is rolled out to the public each day.
The only thing new this week is that, thanks to Project Veritas, we now have video proof of it taking place at CNN. Which we already knew was happening, anyway, right? Right.
Hell, far from getting fired for this, we should expect to soon see videos of Zucker bragging about it at various public events, like Quid Pro Joe bragged about bullying Ukraine’s government to fire that prosecutor. What Zucker and his CNN cohorts are doing is just standard operating procedure at America’s major fake news outlets these days.
The only person at CNN likely to face any real repercussions from the Project Veritas expose’ has already been fired. That is sad, but it’s also very probably true.
That is all.
