The New York Times' lead 2016 Clinton campaign reporter admits crying after Trump's victory !

 

 

New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, the venerable newspaper's lead reporter on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, admits in her new memoir that she cried following Clinton’s 2016 Election Day loss.

In her  role as the paper’s top reporter for the Clinton campaign, Chozick was presumably responsible for covering the the election from a nonpartisan standpoint ( UHUH )The Washington Post published a review from Chozick’s upcoming book, “Chasing Hillary,” which includes the tidbit that she “finally cried” in her cubicle the morning after the election to write the “how she lost” story.

“The day after the 2016 election, Chozick sat in her cubicle and wrote the ‘how she lost’ story. ‘Then I finally cried,’ she writes,” Washington Post book critic Carlos Lozada noted.

Media analyst and DePauw University professor Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that she may have been attempting transparency by owning up to the waterworks, but he doesn’t feel this was the best idea.

Anti-Trump mainstream media in the U.S., joined by their fatuously chirping Canadian counterparts, are failing the general public.

 

We are living through an era when the Western democracies are generally reassessing a great deal of assumed conventional liberal wisdom, and have been conducted in this direction by political leadership that is often disparaged in our mainstream media as disreputable rabble-rousing. The most remarkable aspect of it is no longer that there have been sharp populist turns in the American, British, German, Italian, French, Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Austrian and other electorates (including, nascently, Brazil on the right and Mexico on the left). The larger issue in the United States and the leading western European countries is that the media are at war with the governments, and as all the governments involved have been freely elected, with the people.

The American media, joined by the fatuous imitative chirping of the Canadian media (not that Americans would be aware of or have the slightest interest in what the media or anyone else in Canada thought of anything), regularly imply or state that the U.S. government is being run autocratically by a thuggish individual unfit for his great office. Robert De Niro wants to send the president to prison in a comedy skit; Kathy Griffin, whose opening gambit was a still photograph of the president’s severed head, is now lampooning his entourage in predictable simulations. Desperately unoriginal and mouthy occupants of late-night purported comedy — Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Chelsea Handler — imagine that shouting rehashed denigrations of the president and his family are amusing. It is a bore; it isn’t working, and history moves on.

Surveys confirm that 90 per cent of the national media coverage of Donald Trump is hostile

 

Pew Research Center and Harvard Media Studies surveys both confirm that 90 per cent of the national media coverage of Donald Trump is hostile, but he is accomplishing his stated goals, slowly. The asinine Dodd-Frank financial strangulation law, which enacted the bipartisan dual-branch official American pretence that private greed rather than unspeakable governmental incompetence was responsible for the 2008 financial meltdown, is being repealed. The Secretary of State-designate has returned from a secret visit to North Korea that appears to presage the most ambitious American diplomatic activity since president Reagan’s arms-reduction talks with president Gorbachev (1988), or even president Nixon’s accord with Mao Tse-tung and Chou En-lai (1972).

The economy is flourishing, illegal immigration is sharply curtailed. Assad has been smacked down and Putin faced down, and the gigantic canard of Trump collusion with Russia has collapsed. That investigation, generated by a fired FBI director illegally taking a doubtfully accurate memo and leaking it to the press, has now degenerated into an absurd handoff to New York prosecutors to see if the president’s lawyer committed a campaign finance offence when he paid off a rather peppy porn star for silence about an alleged one-evening encounter with Trump when no abuse or even ungentlemanliness was alleged, 10 years before he ran for president. Truly is America, the greatest nation in history, with all its complexities and shortcomings, mocked by the shallow bias of its free press and the absurdity of public discourse.

 

The arrogant façade of the fascistic American criminal justice system that had been infiltrated by the Clinton-Obama Democratic party has been torn down and the director and deputy director of the FBI revealed as potential felons who will possibly have their own day in the kangaroo courts they so delighted in sending less deservedly accused to face. There are many vicissitudes but the American leviathan is, however awkwardly and inelegantly, reviving. But the most salient aspect of it is not the war on and travails of Trump, but the fact that the national media have shot their bolt every day for 34 months since he announced his candidacy for president. The media threw their obligation to retain some element of fairness and detachment aside, and gambled everything on poisoning the wells and polluting public opinion so badly (as they did with Richard Nixon, but he had no idea how to deal with it) that the people’s choice (by the narrowest of margins and in a stunning surprise) would be overturned. They gambled and they have lost.

My point is not to promote Trump; it is the colossal failure of the press, and the widespread extent of this phenomenon. The British national press generally supported remaining in the European Union. They failed and the opposition Labour Party has revealed itself, in its leader Jeremy Corbyn’s support of the Russians in the matter of the poisoned former agent and his daughter and in his opposition to the British collaboration with the United States and France in recently attacking Assad’s chlorine gas facility. The British media have taken commendable issue with Corbyn, but they have misjudged British opinion on Europe, scandalously misrepresented Trump as a violent and bigoted moron (exceeding even our local shrieking media parrots in that regard), and their credibility has plummeted.

The media threw their obligation to retain some element of fairness and detachment aside

 

The public in the West has been backing away from globalist ideas that in practice enable unfriendly and less developed countries to pick our pockets, and in the name of progress to world brotherhood and government, wish to empower unaccountable forces as long as they march under a politically correct banner. The problem with the European Union is that those who run it, though nominated by their governments, are compromise choices from the little countries of little natural authority who are not answerable either to the dysfunctional European parliament or to the principal sovereign constituent states. The French and Italians and Spanish, who don’t normally expect much from governments and don’t necessarily pay much attention to their edicts, are not much affected. The Germans, who are accustomed to authority, don’t mind, especially as they are the most powerful country in Europe. The British like to be law-abiding, but do not like and would not ultimately accept an endless deluge of authoritarian micro-regulations from an anonymous claque of Belgian and Dutch Euro-commissioners. The media largely missed the whole issue and scoffed at Brexit and similar sentiments throughout Europe.

The same problem has arisen in the central European elections. The international media have panned the Polish, Austrian, Czech and Hungarian governments as authoritarian and retrograde. The Hungarian elections two weeks ago, which incumbent Viktor Orban was expected to try to steal by fraud at the polls and intimidation and by muzzling the media, were won by him easily, with ample voice for his opponents. Orban has been the most articulate and courageous European leader in making the point that a wave of migrants that swept into Europe after the Iraqi-Syrian disintegrations wasn’t orderly immigration of the kind celebrated by the Statue of Liberty — it was an oceanic movement of desperate people. Arriving literally by the millions, the migrants — many of whom were genuinely fleeing carnage, of course — overwhelmed the resources and goodwill of many of the European states, a situation that was not helped by outrageous crimes committed by some of the new arrivals. Orban objected to the omniscienti in Brussels purporting to control Hungary’s borders and to redistribute refugees throughout the EU’s 27 countries. He ran a clean election with a completely free media and won a landslide. The media in the West bought the line that he was a corrupt neo-fascist. He isn’t and never was.

Our problem is not so much our leaders in the West, who at least have the rod on their backs of free electorates; it is our purblind and now severely compromised media. Influence on public opinion is now profoundly fragmented across the internet; the traditional media have no real influence and don’t deserve any. But the typecasting and stigmatizing by leftish journalists continues, like the singing of doomed people on sinking ships. Locally, Doug Ford, who will be premier of Ontario in less than two months unless the province has really been forsaken by God and man, is being demonized as a local Trump. (He performed a public service in not allowing the octogenarian “moonbeam” governor of California, Jerry Brown, to address the provincial legislature last week on the bunk about global warming, as we shivered without electricity in an April winter storm). We could do worse than Doug Ford, and recently have.

But we will get the politicians we deserve. When will we get media we deserve? This is a burning question for the whole West. Until it is answered, a free press is undervalued and accordingly vulnerable. The recently exposed abuses of Facebook and other tech giants and the U.S. president’s successful use of Twitter are symptoms of the problem.

From the article.....

 

” During the CNN broadcast, Trump protesters and Trump supporters could be seen lined up on separate sides yelling at each other.” 

 

From some one at the Rally....

“ This is bullshit. I read this artical and they say Trump supporters agitate protesters. Well I was there and everyone drove by this band of maybe 40 misfit children chanting their theme of lies calling Trump a fascist. The majority of people drove by them quietly but some flipped them off. I gave them a bit of verbal advice lmao. I do not care what the fake news says about this these people
 They were there to cause trouble and deserved more then thy got. Everyone in line that streched 2 miles were all awesome. Over 10000 were there. Capacity was 5000 in building and there were more outside then in.”

CNN is the absolute worst of the worst when it comes to Fake News.

When Barcelona was having their protests last September, if all you had done was watched CNN you would have thought WW3 was about to ignite.

I happened to personally be there in the midst of the rallys filled with nothing but joyeous people. I walked directly through the largest gathering near the Iniversity and what I observed was a celebration. Families pushing strollers, Gramma and Grandpa in tow. ..picnics on the streets... people laughing having a party celebrating the results of the separation vote. Sure there was the usual bravado of the University crowd but everything was peaceful. Never once did I feel threatened in any way.

 

Fast forward 4 hours later to when I got back to my hotel and switched on the TV to CNN International.

CONSTANT coverage over and over and over ad nauseum of ONE scuffle at ONE polling booth ( of which there were over 5000 ) in which the Police tried to shut down voting. Naturally the people pushed back.

 

The real story of celebration on the streets was ignored by CNN. But if you believed CNN...... as presented to the world .....all hell was breaking loose.

 

Absolute disgusting BS reporting by CNN pushing a doctrine of hate and Fake News  to up their ratings. To hell with the truth.

CNN anchor Don Lemon revealed that his network will limit the amount of time it devotes to airing President Donald Trump’s 2020 rallies unfiltered.

“There will be no rallies that run in real time,” Lemon said at a Variety event on Friday. “There will not be so much space for candidates to let them ramble on. The American people will demand that. We will expect more truth from our candidates.”

 

CE912343-0B90-4CF3-BDE1-A0CBCB467330.jpeg

 

According to Variety, Lemon referenced “CNN’s decision to carry live coverage of Trump rallies without much commentary as something that won’t be repeated.”

During the 2016 campaign, Trump used his rallies to give his perspective on issues like illegal immigration and trade that went counter to the legacy media’s preferred narrative. He even highlighted “Angel Moms” and people of color whose families were victimized by illegal immigrant crime—like Jamiel Shaw Sr.—that the legacy media had conveniently chosen to ignore.

The legacy media aired many of Trump’s rallies unfiltered because they never thought he could actually win the presidency. But the joke eventually ended up being on them, and now the legacy media seem intent on not making the same “mistakes.”

Lemon’s remarks indicate that CNN will try to severely limit the amount of time its viewers get to listen to Trump without anti-Trump pundits, Republican useful idiots like Ana Navarro, and left-wing anchors like Lemon trying to take Trump out of context and ginning up scandals.

 

Lemon, at the same event, after all said it was his “obligation as a journalist” to say that Trump is “racist.”

“If he is not racist he’s certainly is racist-adjacent,” Lemon said. “If you have the evidence that shows you, that indicates, that leads you to nothing else but this president being racist, then I feel it’s my obligation as a journalist to say it. On that night I said it, and I don’t regret saying it. I believe that to be true.”

I'm not sure how seats are assigned in the White House press room, but I think it would be great if Sara booted Acosta & CNN and replaced them with a news organization that was more appropriate.

Yes, I like informed respectable media personnel that pursue a thoughtful & balanced approach to reporting.

Acosta is supposed to be a White House 'reporter', not the presenter of personal opinion pieces.

FOX is a somewhat focused news service that offers opinions on most topics they cover; I guess it comes down to the fact that I tend to appreciate their viewpoint over the other main stream outfits.

In fairness though; in spite of their relative intelligence, I do find myself laughing sometimes when a thirty year old talking head offers an opinion on a topic that really requires a broad perspective that can only acquired through life experience. I wish their were more Walter Cronkite's.

Boestar

Do you mind; I've always wanted to ask you what a boestar is?

 

Anyway, the weak minded must have missed the grade 7' introduction' to media lessons.

Rule one - don't accept one media report as gospel, review as many sources as possible.

Dunno just something I made up.  Kind of a combination of Boeing and Star alliance.

PRICELESS !!

NY Times ATTACKS 'Absent' Pompeo During Secret RESCUE MISSION.

According to Fox News, the Times blasted Pompeo for not being on hand as the President announced his decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear agreement; saying he was missing at a “key moment” of the Trump presidency.

“Senior State Department officials were momentarily speechless on Tuesday when asked why Mr. Pompeo did not delay his trip by a day to be in Washington during Mr. Trump’s Iran deal announcement,” writes the Times.

“The absence of Mr. Pompeo and other top State Department officials left perplexed European diplomats privately complaining that they were having trouble getting answers from Washington,” the author added.

It became clear by Wednesday that the reason Pompeo was “thousands of miles away” was to oversee the transfer of three American prisoners from North Korean officials to US custody.

The New York Times viciously slammed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Tuesday, accusing the senior Trump aide of being “thousands of miles away” during the President’s Iran speech; despite the fact he was in North Korea negotiating the release of three prisoners.

Well, it seems like CTV is either really into lazy journalism, or has a real love for bashing conservatives.

On May 30th they published an article titled “Doug Ford’s plan is ‘furthest away’ from balanced budget, economist says“.

They published the works of Mike Moffatt, an economist with Western University’s Ivey Business School, as almost a non-partisan fact.

In reality Moffat has deep ties to Liberal groups nation-wide, as he himself serves as the Director of Policy and Research for the Liberal public policy group Canada 2020.

Now let me be clear, I have no problem with a partisan individuals like Moffatt discussing politics or putting up interesting numbers.

My problem is with the lack of declaration from a supposedly neutral third-party source, CTV.

I know personally, that I have learned to take special care to check CTV’s sources.
