As Its Influence Wanes, Increasingly Militant MSM Promotes Violence and Censorship

By John Nolte

Yes, the MSM has admitted they got 2016 exactly wrong and that they are out-of-touch with the average American. What truly terrifies the media about 2016, though, is something that has remained largely unspoken.

It is what Trump’s victory said so clearly about the MSM’s inability to influence public opinion and, by extension, the outcome of elections. What has also remained unspoken is the media’s desperate and dangerous reaction to this waning influence.

As a 25 year media-watcher, I have never seen anything close to the propaganda campaign the national media launched to defeat Donald Trump last year. It was 24/7, it was coordinated across every news outlet, it was all-hands-on-deck. And Trump still won. Which can only mean that the media’s influence has eroded to a point where, despite hurling every kitchen sink available, they suffered a humiliating loss last November.

Before I get into the grit of the nit, it is important to keep in mind that our media is nothing more than the communication branch of the Democrat Party. When you look at everything the media does — the lying, the campaigns of personal destruction, the fake news, the focus on stuff like Melania’s shoes — this explanation is the only one that makes sense. The media is a full-blown leftwing political operation run, for the most part, by former Democrat operatives like Jake Tapper, George Stephanopolous, and Chuck Todd, as well as those related to Democrat operatives.

Knowing that, and knowing the long history of leftwing regimes (Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Chavez, Castro), we know what a leftwing political operation does when its influence begins to diminish. Because their ideas are so unappealing and are proven failures, the left ultimately has no choice but to embrace violence and censorship. This truth is as old as the Bolshevik Revolution, and this is exactly what we are seeing unfold today in our own country. Rather than politicians, though, it is our media that has turned dangerously militant. (Bold type: mine)

Rush Limbaugh is absolutely correct, the Democrat party is dead. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, the party’s two supposed leaders, are non-entities. From top-to-bottom, the party is a feckless pile of incompetence. Knowing this, the media has told Schumer and Pelosi to hold their beer as they seize the levers of power in the leftwing cause. As a result, the media has used billions of corporate dollars to launch a propaganda campaign to unseat Trump and to keep the divisive issue of identity politics thriving.

    Along the same lines as those stated in the article, lack of voice for the Right/Conservatives, for a number of years I would get an over all view of the news from the MSN website in the early morning. While slanted left the reader at least had the ability to comment on nearly every story. The more left leaning a story (many from the AP, WP, NYT, etc.) the greater number of comments from the Right, and occasionally from moderates, refuting what had been reported. If you had/have a Facebook account your comment would immediately appear there when you posted on MSN.
    No longer! It finally occurred to Microsoft and also Zuckerman that by not allowing right leaning posts on MSN they effectively did away with a significant ability of those that oppose them and their positions on most everything of importance.
    As stated in the article, controlling the release of information and/or silencing the opposition has been seen before. The major media is truly living up to the occasional accusations we heard in the recent past (and now seldom, if ever), they are, in fact, the enemies of the people.

    I believe the “mainstream” modifier was created by the lefty media to dupe the American public into thinking that THEY (the lefties) actually represented the mainstream of American public opinion. The lefties have never represented the bulk of the American people’s opinion and never will. I would like to see the media described as the lefty media or the LSD (Liberal Socialist Democrat) media going forward. After all, that’s who they really are.
