Washington Post's slogan is "Democracy Dies in Darkness". While it was intended as a barb at Trump and those that claim the media is often FakeNews.... its actually more of a motto, about how biased the media has become and is willing to snuff out the truth for their political agenda, and misinform their voters. This isn't about all FakeNews, just about the stories that the media killed, sat on, or delayed, because it fit their agenda.
Here's some of the skeletal remains of what journalism might have looked like, if it wasn't suffocated by political agenda: 5 items
|Google TGIF video - Google has these all-hands meetings called TGIF (Thank Google it's Friday), not that you get weekends off, but because all goodness comes from your Googley overlords. Well, someone Keistered out a thumb drive with the entire video of what happened the day after Hillary lost the election to Donald Trump in 2016, and it was a doozie. Serge Brin, Larry Page, VPs Kent Walker and Eileen Naughton, CFO Ruth Porat, and CEO Sundar Pichai are all snowflake meltdown mode, with hug sessions (seriously), letting the staff know that despite their best efforts to interfere in an election through illegal silent donations to Hillary Campaign (and get-out-the-Latino-vote efforts), that she still lost. But that their management was there to fight the forces of fascism, against the electorate that were "low information" voters who only voted for Trump because they were bored racists, and that they would continue to work to bend the nation/world to their will in the future, and help avoid the world war that the right wanted to start. Seriously, that's only slightly paraphrased. It was their way of telling the company that while they value diversity, it doesn't apply to whites, males, conservatives or anyone who didn't vote for Hillary. |
To put the cherry on top, we find out that the NYT had this video since March, but squashed the story like it was a Harvey Weinstein or John Edwards scandal. The New York Times, all the news that's fit to suppress.
|Beto Hacker Story - We learned that Beto was a hacker in a group called, "Cult of the Dead Cow", had written many misogynistic posts, and had even dabbled in child homicide fantasy fiction. Reuters not only knew of it, and it's News value, for 2 years, they squashed the story so it wouldn't interfere with his Senate run against Cruz (which he lost anyways).
|2005- Uranium One Payola -
- In 2005 Canadian billionaire Frank Giustra (head of UrAsia Energy and long time Clinton friend) and Bill Clinton go to Uranium rich Kazakhstan to help with a non-existent humanitarian "HIV/AIDS" crisis. A few days later, Hillary Clinton (Senator and member of Senate Armed Services Committee), threatens to withhold aid to Kazakhstan until a UrAsia mining deal goes forward. One day later Kazatomprom (the atomic energy agency for Khazakhstan) awards the contract to UrAsia making them the world’s largest uranium mining producer. 6 months later Giustra donates $31.3 million to the Clinton Foundation. Nothing suspicious there.
- Then the head of Kazatomprom (Mukhtar Dzhkishev), Bill Clinton and Frank Giustra meet at Bill's Chappaqua residence to work out a new deal: Uranium One buys UrAsia Energy Ltd for $3.1 billion in a reverse merger... and Giustra announces a commitment to donate $100 million + half future profits to the Clinton Foundation ($145 million total to the Clintons). Still nothing concerning to the leftist media.
- Then a 3rd deal in 2009, when Rosatom (Russia's State Atomic Energy Corporation), wants to secure a 17% ownership stake in Uranium One, marking the beginning of an aggressive campaign to control the U.S. uranium market. Kazatomprom balks (not wanting Russia to control their assets), and Putin pressures the Kazakhstan government to arrest head of Kazatomprom (former Clinton guest Mukhtar Dzhkishev) on Uranium One deal corruption charges, at the same time that Clinton's State Department threatens to withhold financial aid to Kazakhstan if the deal doesn't go through. Which results in the Rosatom purchase proceeding quickly. Over the rest of 2009, Hillary Clinton intervenes on multiple other occasions on behalf of Uranium One/Rosatom in favor of the sale of U.S. uranium assets. And in 2010 Bill Clinton collects $500,000 for a one-hour speech he delivered in Moscow, for a Kremlin-controlled investment bank (Renaissance Capital) populated by former Russian intelligence agents with close ties to Putin. And like that, half of projected American uranium production was transferred to a private company controlled by the Russian State Nuclear Agency. During all this time, CNN, NYT and other FakeNews outlets have been arguing against transparency and journalism, burying the story, and calling it all a crazy right wing conspiracy. Nothing to see here.
|2003.04.10 Tools of the Tyrant - 🔥 Only after the fall of Baghdad, on-air and in an Op-Ed titled, "The News We Kept to Ourselves", CNN's exec-in-charge admit (Eason Jordan) admitted to having suppressed from the public the truth about Saddam being a murderous tyrant, in order to keep CNN's access to Iraq. Isn't lying and working for the enemy of the U.S. and against American or the world's interests, what defines traitors? It certainly isn't journalism.
|1929 Russian Collusion - While the Ukrainian Gennoacide is going on, Walter Duranty (top NYT reporter on Russia) was not only being a Stalin Apologist and covering it up, but attacking other journalists for trying to expose it. And winning awards for helping the Soviets exterminate political threats via one of the greatest famines in the world. (The Paul Krugman of his day).
