Trump Campaign Banishes Bloomberg News – But Why Not CNN?

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

[Note: Today’s Campaign Update will be on a delayed morning schedule from November 30 through  December 4.]

Good move. Now do CNN and the New York Times and the Washington Post and… – Trump Campaign Chairman Brad Parscale announced on Monday that the campaign would no longer be offering press credentials to anyone representing Bloomberg News. That inevitable move – labeled as “surprising” by many corrupt media outlets – comes after an internal memo written by Bloomberg News editor-in-chief John Micklethwait announced that the outlet would continue its “tradition of not investigating Mike (and his family and foundation) and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries.”

So, Bloomberg News desperately wants to be considered a “news” outlet, yet its own Editor-in-Chief proudly boasts to his staff that it is in fact a campaign tool for its owner and his opponents in the Democrat presidential primary. In other words, Bloomberg is just another CNN, NYTimes, WaPo, MSNBC and on and on and on. The sad part of that is that Bloomberg actually does a fine job of business reporting, and if it had just stuck to that mission, this reputational black eye would have never come about.

The only really “surprising” thing about this move is that the Trump Campaign’s action hasn’t been followed – or frankly, led – by a similar action being taken by the White House press team. Why should a self-admitted propaganda outlet for a Democrat Party that has changed its mission from governing  to attempting a never-ending coup d’etat effort be allowed on the grounds of the White House? It makes no sense, just as it makes no sense that Jim Acosta still holds a press pass and John Brennan still maintains his security clearance. You might as well be wheeling a Trojan Horse through the White House gates.

Here is the text of Parscale’s press release announcing the campaign’s decision:

The decision by Bloomberg News to formalize preferential reporting policies is troubling and wrong.

Bloomberg News has declared that they won’t investigate their boss or his Democrat competitors, many of whom are current holders of high office, but will continue critical reporting on President Trump. As President Trump’s campaign, we are accustomed to unfair reporting practices, but most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly. Presented with this new policy from Bloomberg News, our campaign was forced to determine how to proceed.

Since they have declared their bias openly, the Trump Campaign will no longer credential representatives of Bloomberg News for rallies or other campaign events. We will determine whether to engage with individual reporters or answer inquiries from Bloomberg News on a case-by-case basis. This will remain the policy of the Trump campaign until Bloomberg News publicly rescinds its decision.

Here is the key sentence from that release: “As President Trump’s campaign, we are accustomed to unfair reporting practices, but most news organizations don’t announce their biases so publicly.” While it is true that Bloomberg’s internal memo is an especially egregious admission of journalistic bias, the reality is that we have seen similar admissions of toadying to the Democrat daily narrative by CNN, the New York Times and other major outlets.  Sure, the policies haven’t been “formalized,” but how does John Micklethwait differ from multiple leaked memos we’ve seen from Dean Baquet at the Times and Jeff Zucker at CNN?

It’s exactly the same thing.

So yeah, the singling out of Bloomberg for this form of banishment from access to the President’s re-election campaign is a little surprising, but only because similar action wasn’t taken across a broad spectrum of utterly corrupt propaganda outlets.

A pox on all their houses.

That is all.

Project Veritas Shows That CNN is Fake. In Other News, Water is Still Wet.

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.

Thanks to Bret Baier, James Comey’s Defense Strategy is now a Matter of Public Record

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The depraved seditionists who make up the team of fake journalists at CNN spent all day Saturday whining about the fact that President Trump refused to attend last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner for the second straight year.  No longer able to attract any A-list talent, the WHCD was hosted by some D-list comic named Michelle Wolf, whose opening monologue proved beyond all doubt the President had made the right decision once again.

CNN laughably billed the dinner as a “celebration of the first amendment,” as if anyone at CNN actually gives a damn about the constitution anymore.  Ms. Wolf took this billing to mean that she was free to fill her routine with any profanity, insult or slander she saw fit to use, even to the point of personally attacking White House representatives Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, who made the mistake of choosing to attend the dinner.

The evening’s festivities only went downhill from there.  Gosh, hard to imagine why the President of the United States of America would choose not to legitimize such nonsense.  In reality, the dinner provided just one more reason to question why the White House continues to allow these people onto the grounds for daily press briefings.  It has been obvious they are a hostile force since the first day of this administration, and represent a security threat to the President and his advisors.

The President of the United States has a duty to keep the people informed of what his administration is doing on a regular basis.  But no president has any obligation to cater to the whims of a group of hostile degenerates, which is what the White House press corps has become.  Last night’s event was a disgrace, not just to the near-dead journalistic profession, but to the entire country.  It should not go unpunished.

Mr. Trump, meanwhile, traveled to Washington Township, Michigan to hold a rally that drew attention away from the attention-starved gaggle of fake journalists.  It was classic Trump, a wide-ranging hour and twenty minute stream of consciousness that touched on pretty much everything going on in Washington, DC today.  The White House Press Association should send him a thank you note for distracting the public’s attention away from the disgusting display its members put on at their annual Hollywood for Ugly People gala.

But back to CNN.  If they haven’t already done so, Jeff Zucker and some of the on-air talent at the fakest fake news outlet on the face of the earth had probably better start lawyering up, since it has now become quite obvious that they have not only tailored their reporting to support the conspiracy to take down this presidency, but some of them have been active participants in it.

Make no mistake about this:  What has gone on within the FBI and DOJ since mid-2016 was initially a concerted effort to rig a national election that then, after failing to do that, morphed into a full-blown attempt at a soft coup d’etat.  As we discussed in yesterday’s Campaign Update, CNN fake host Jake Tapper has been an active participant in the plot since January 2017, when Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper shared the contents of the fake Trump Dossier with him.  Since that time, Tapper has sat silently by without comment as Clapper has lied about the Dossier and who he shared it with time after time after time.  That makes Tapper a willing participant in a conspiracy to bring down a duly-elected president.

If Tapper was aware of this, it idiotic to believe that others at CNN weren’t also aware of the same thing.  As a network, CNN has not only continued to allow Clapper on its air, it actually awarded him a big contract in August 2017 to become a paid talent for the fake news channel.  By that time, it was already public knowledge that Clapper had lied to a congressional committee about all of this, but the fake news network hired him anyway.

As this conspiracy continues to unravel, there is no telling where all these various threads will lead.  But we can bet that some of them will lead deep within bowels of the management at CNN, which is about to make a bunch of lawyers a buttload of money.

Speaking of making lawyers a buttload of money, I went back and listened to James Comey’s interview with Bret Baier again yesterday.  It strikes me that in that interview, it is obvious that he was basically practicing the answers he plans to give on a witness stand in a court proceeding.

For a guy who just wrote a book about all of this, Comey’s memory has suddenly become very fuzzy.  His answers to Baier’s questions are filled with weasel-word qualifiers that good lawyers always tell their clients to use, phrases like “I don’t recall,” “not to my recollection,” “that’s not consistent with my memory,” and on and on.  Comey’s obvious defense strategy will be to blame Andrew McCabe, who was his deputy, and Bill Priestap, the FBI’s head of counterintelligence  – and the guy to whom FBI super-agent-in-his-own-mind Peter Strzok reported – for keeping him in the dark as they and their minions went about their anti-Trump machinations.

Taking that interview with Baier was a serious strategic error on Comey’s part.  Baier, with his tough questioning, forced the teen drama queen onto the record about all manner of things he should not have been talking about, leaving Comey now stuck with a narrative that’s already been aired in public.  Even with all the weasel words, it will very difficult for him to shift that story come trial time.

Those of you who still think Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t going to pursue any of this might want to take a close look at Comey’s behavior over the past week, because Comey obviously disagrees with you.  You might also want to think about the fact that, other than Clapper and Obama CIA Director John Brennan, the rest of the Obama high officials implicated thus far – like Ben Rhodes, Sally Yates and Samantha Power – have gone strangely silent in the public space over the last month or two.

It’s a strong bet that some lawyers are making a buttload of money off of them as well.

Just another day in the conspiracy to end the Trump presidency is falling apart America.

That is all.
