“Horseshit”: A Lone Journalist’s Voice Torches the Biased MSM

“Suppose one reads a story of filthy atrocities in the paper. Then suppose that something turns up suggesting that the story might not be quite true, or not quite so bad as it was made out. Is one’s first feeling, ‘Thank God, even they aren’t quite so bad as that,’ or is it a feeling of disappointment, and even a determination to cling to the first story for the sheer pleasure of thinking your enemies are as bad as possible? If it is the second then it is, I am afraid, the first step in a process which, if followed to the end, will make us into devils. You see, one is beginning to wish that black was a little blacker. If we give that wish its head, later on we shall wish to see grey as black, and then to see white itself as black. Finally we shall insist on seeing everything — God and our friends and ourselves included — as bad, and not be able to stop doing it: we shall be fixed for ever in a universe of pure hatred.” – C.S. Lewis

Lara Logan literally went through Hell a few years ago doing her job as a journalist during the Egypt upheaval. She was gang raped by a mob amid a massive crowd while covering a protest and could have lost her life. Unfortunately, She will now be violated as badly by those in her profession who will not tolerate her blunt honesty in calling them out for the unmitigated sham they have become…

DM: 60 Minutes’ Lara Logan slams the ‘mostly liberal’ media for its coverage of Trump which she calls a ‘distortion’ of real life, as the award-winning CBS journalist admits she is ‘committing professional suicide’

CBS News’ chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan blasted the media on Friday. In a podcast interview, she said the media was ‘mostly liberal’ and that ’85 per cent of journalists are registered Democrats’. Logan said there is an imbalance of political views in the mainstream press and that coverage of President Trump is overwhelmingly negative…

‘You say the media is mostly liberal,’ Logan told Mike Ritland on his Mike Drop podcast.

‘I agree with you. It’s true. Why can I say that with certainty?

‘Well first of all I’ve been part of this for all my life, I’m 47 now and I’ve been a journalist since I was 17 and the media everywhere is mostly liberal not just in the U.S, but in this country 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats so that’s just a fact.’

Logan said there isn’t much variety in viewpoints among mainstream news organizations.

‘Visually, anyone who’s ever been to Israel and been to the Wailing Wall has seen that the women have this tiny little spot in front of the wall to pray, and the rest of the wall is for the men,’ she said.

‘To me, that’s a great representation of the American media, is that in this tiny little corner where the women pray you’ve got Breitbart and Fox News and a few others, and from there on, you have CBS, ABC, NBC, Huffington Post, Politico, whatever, right? All of them.

‘That’s a problem for me. My experience has been that the more opinions you have, the more ways that you look at everything in life – everything in life is complicated, everything is gray, right?

‘Nothing is black and white.’

Logan said that media coverage of the president has been overwhelmingly one-sided.

‘For example, the coverage on Trump, all the time, is negative,’ she said.

‘There’s no mitigating policy, or event or anything that has happened since he was elected that is out there in the media that you can read about, right?

‘Well, that tells you, that’s distortion of the way things go in real life.’

‘Although the media has always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense or at least the effort to be objective today.

‘We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that.’

She said that journalists no longer abide by reporting standards.

‘Standards are out the window, I mean you read one story after another or hear it and it’s all based on one anonymous administration official, former administration official,’ she said.

‘That’s not journalism, that’s horses**t.’

Towards the end of the interview, she acknowledged some may perceive her comments as controversial.

‘This interview is professional suicide for me,’ she said…

That’s just the tip of the MSM iceberg. The media has been off the tracks for decades now, most noticeably beginning during the Clinton years when they covered for not just the Monica fiasco but all the corruption within his administration, especially connecting Hillary Clinton with the FBI via “missing” files. The journalistic malpractice and bias grew like black mold from then on. The MSM took a political side and decided it would not only be the official mouthpiece for the democrat party and its socialist agenda, but by refusing to present all news in a professional and objective manner. Their coverage of the Iraq war during the Bush administration was based near completely on finding the worst stories it could find from ‘runners’ outside the Green Zone where they themselves sat safely and comfortably. I personally know Marines and soldiers who would come home and tell me what they were watching on the TV news scare the shit out of them compared to what they were seeing and experiencing over there. They were outraged none of the positive liberating and productive things they were doing for the people of Iraq was being covered by the reporters on the ground. They said they were shrugged off and told those stories weren’t interesting and headline grabbing. Logan knows this.

And here we are… For eight years the MSM went into a unicorn fart-fueled self-induced coma during the Barack Obama administration. They completely buried its many scandals, such as ‘Fast and Furious’, Solyndra, the ObamaCare lies/realities, and continue to this day to cover-up and scoff at Hillary Clinton’s wrongdoing while Secretary of State, Benghazi, and her using of the DOJ/FBI as her insider flunkies against Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.

And as the person tweeted the MSM grabs onto a fake story, blames it on people not anywhere near involved in the happening, and runs with it, spinning and spinning it worse and worse. And when it is busted open the same MSM deflects any and all responsibility for creating and carrying the lies, as we are seeing now in blinding sunlight with the Jussie Smollett ‘race/hate crime’ that wasn’t…

Twitchy: Brian Stelter tries to pin Smollett story ‘rush to judgment’ on ‘celebrity press, activists & Twitter,’ trips HARD over CNN

Twitchy: ‘But FIREFIGHTERS!’ AP’s shameless spin on unraveling Jussie Smollett case ‘is why people can’t stand the media’

I cannot say “it’ll take a long time for the MSM to regain the trust of the people”, because I don’t believe it ever will. They burned that bridge pretty damn good into the ground.

Even social media has joined forces with the horrifically biased newspeak MSM in manipulating and censoring news, Facebook apparently blocking any attempts for members to post links to Smollett having staged a hoax.

The same corrupt and colluding (with democrats and the Deep State) MSM continues to push and hype and spin the DOA “Trump-Russia collusion” horseshit.

TDW: On January 29, Two Hate Crimes Occurred. The Media Only Covered The Fake One. Here’s Why.

William A. Jacobson: Media following same script against MAGA as it did against Tea Party – From Bill Sparkman to Jussie Smollett, the media still creates false narratives that ordinary law-abiding Americans who oppose liberals are dangerous and prone to violence.

While the current specific hoaxes and accusations are new, the media tactic is not.

I covered the media mistreatment of the Tea Party starting in 2009, and the same pattern took hold: An act or alleged act of violence immediately was blamed on Tea Party supporters in the absence of actual evidence that the alleged perpetrator was a Tea Party supporter, and in many cases where there was evidence the alleged perpetrator was liberal or leftist.

It all was for the purpose of portraying Tea Party supporters specifically and the “right-wing” more generally as “eliminationist,” people who were prone to political violence…

The false eliminationist narrative directed at the Tea Party went on for years, aided and abetted by Democrat operative groups like Think Progress and by establishment Republicans who hated the Tea Party.
The prolonged — to this day — attempt to blame Sarah Palin for the shooting of Gabby Giffords by Jared Loughner was one of the worst examples, but just one of many that we covered.

James Holmes
Jared Loughner
The Cabby Stabber
Bill Sparkman
Amy Bishop
The Fort Hood Shooter
The IRS Plane Crasher
The Pentagon Shooter
Boston Marathon Bomber

In each of these cases, when the hoax or false narrative was exposed, the mainstream media no longer was around, they had moved on, leaving the false perception that Tea Party supporters were dangerous and violent.

Nothing has changed, other than the names and faces. The media still plays the role of creating false narratives that ordinary law-abiding Americans who oppose liberals are dangerous and prone to violence.

Watch how they will run from their complicity in the Jussie Smollett story, how they will try to blame Smollett and society at large for their own journalistic malfeasance and political bias.

Before Socialism or Communism Can Takeover the Fascists Must First Build and Grow the Hate Movement…

They HATE you.

There is no denying that we are in an era of hate in this nation. And while both sides can be called on it, there is also no denying which side is seriously running a “revolution” (they call it ‘resistance’) on it. And then look to who is using ‘Nazis’ and ‘Hitler’ in their vitriol … and with absolutely no empirical evidence to prove those overused terms are accurate. That is, unless they are looking in a mirror when saying it. I mean, think about the only thing you can compare this level of leftwing hate, and all they bring with it, to/ It really does equate to the hate movement Hitler’s political party drummed up in Germany after he returned from the WWI trenches. It’s the movement and campaign he developed and ran on. Pure hate. Hate of Jews. Hate of anyone not German nationals. Hate against the universities. Hate against businesses. Oh, you you notice these same leftwingers never cite the Marxist-Leninists who also practiced the same type of social/societal hate and divisions with Russia’s
Bolshevik minions in the streets in the lead-up to the revolution that eventually put the Bolsheviks in power to fully carryout the complete destruction of Russia’s society and economy. The Soviet Union’s communist fascists outlived Hitler and his National Socialist Party to gut Russia and turn their merciless totalitarianism on the masses of the country.

Fascism is maniacal insanity incarnate. It becomes a movement when equally insane people who believe they must takeover rule and control the masses become a collective with a plan. Then they know they must pull a decent percentage of the masses they seek to consume in their direction or they won’t be able to defeat the masses. So they whip up mass hysteria against everyone and everything they hate, just as Hitler and his minions did. It is happening in our country. People staging and lying about ‘hate crimes’, and with the help of the activist leftwing MSM (and yes, I count the social media overlords as part of the leftwing MSM) who demand we respect and never question them. Lord Almighty, if you thought we had leftwing activists in the establishment democrat party, just look at the freshmen class that got voted into the ranks in the November election, and all they are saying and trying to do. Anti-Semitism. Anti-Christian. Anti-capitalism. Anti-business. Even anti-gay, if said ‘gays’ are not leftwing. On and on…

AT: The Left’s Anti-Semitism Problem

For the record, check any socialist/communist country. “Unions” are key to setting up the government-controlled economy. Even in Great Britain, where post-WWII they set up a soft socialism in order to rebuild and sustain their war torn society. Ten years ago British Daniel Hannan, a conservative member of the European Parliament, warned the US not to sign onto ObamaCare. He said the medical communities in Great Britain became government unions, and they would never vote out their NHS because they would never vote out their government paychecks in exchange for a competitive free market healthcare system. You see, this is how socialism/communism roots itself in society. This is why this nation’s democrat-socialists are so gung-ho for/with unions, and unions with them. The incestuous alliance between the democrat party and unions has been directly responsible for the destruction of industrial cities in this country for the last 50-60 years. Look at Detroit. Look at my area of Youngstown, Ohio. And so, we have to wonder where Amazon will now decide it is a more positive area to move a new satellite of their business now that people like AOC and other democrats in New York have run them out before they even began building. But don’t you dare counter argue with the latest socialist messiah because the minions of hate will be put-upon on you.

We saw this with the Covington Catholic High School teens in Washington DC a couple of weeks ago, purely fueled by the establishment media and social media.

Yes, Hitler and his Nazi party staged shit too in order to drive division and hate against those who didn’t go along with them.

New Sheriff in DC: Bill Barr Confirmed by Senate as DOJ’s New AG

William Barr has been confirmed by the Senate for attorney general. While he is being held up as possibly one of the most qualified ever for the position, it will be interesting to see how he handles the ongoing off the rails Mueller investigation, as it is said he and Mueller have a friendly relationship. Barr’s past comments of not agreeing with a lot of what the investigation is doing got him in the thorny bushes with democrats during the confirmation hearing. Today he says he actually does not know all that is behind the Mueller investigation.

FOX News: William Barr is our new attorney general — Here are four things he should focus on right away

Barr made it clear in his confirmation hearing that he intends to ensure that the Justice Department, which includes the FBI, will “enforce the law evenhandedly and with integrity.” Barr promised that the department’s conduct would be “above and away from politics.” Nothing, he added, “could be more destructive of our system of government, of the rule of law, or the Department of Justice as an institution, than any toleration of political interference with the enforcement of the law.”

So what should Barr focus on, and why?

Implement the First Step Act. Barr told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he would “diligently” implement the First Step Act, the biggest criminal reform legislation passed in recent years. He also said he would concentrate on “chronic, violent criminals” as well as on the violence “rearing its head in the political realm.” Hopefully, that means the department will investigate those who foment political violence, and prosecute them if their actions violate federal criminal law.

Enforce immigration laws. Barr made it clear he wouldn’t back away from President Trump’s number-one priority: the enforcement of our immigration laws. As he said, we have “the most liberal and expansive immigration laws in the world.” But “countenancing” the “lawlessness” of illegal aliens who “flout our legal system by crashing in through the back door…would be grossly unfair to those abiding by the rules.” In fact, it “would create unsafe conditions on our borders” and it “would permit an avenue for criminals and terrorists to gain access to our country.”
With Barr at the helm, count on the Justice Department to step up its vigorous enforcement of our immigration laws against illegal aliens and those cities and states that are trying to obstruct federal enforcement.

Election integrity. Barr testified that election integrity is one of the “foundations of our Nation” that is fundamental “to the peaceful transition of power through elections.” There is much to be done in this area, particularly because it is something the prior administration entirely neglected. That includes everything from finally going after states that refuse to maintain the accuracy of their voter registration rolls as required under federal law, to prosecuting election crimes such as aliens who illegally register and vote.

Renew FISA Sunset Provisions. Three key laws that help protect our national security are set to expire in December. Attorney General Barr has extensive experience on the utility of these provisions, and should lay the groundwork now to get Congress to reauthorize those tools early. The three provisions are the business record provision (FISA Section 501), roving wiretaps (FISA Section 105(c)), and the lone wolf amendment (FISA Section 101(b)(1)(C)).

Cyber Security and Countering Foreign Influence. State actors have ramped up efforts in recent years against the United States and American companies. China, in particular, has engaged in economic and scientific espionage and theft of intellectual property. Foreign intelligence services have engaged in influence operations, violated data privacy, and exploited loopholes and fissures to obtain personal information for espionage and disinformation operations. Barr should empower the National Security Division of the Justice Department to ramp up efforts to address these complex issues in an aggressive manner, consistent with the law.
