Media as Propaganda Arm of the Democrat Party

 

 

 

 

Christopher Johnson at Midwest Conservative Journal helps point out that most members of the media this year are nothing but Democrat shills.  In that respect this year is like all years since 1964 although this year they are not bothering to make any attempt to disguise the fact:

 

 

“American “journalists.”  Pretty much the same thing.  CNN’s Carol Costello desperately tries to get a parent of one of Lady Macbeth’s victims to focus on what’s truly important:

Charles Woods, father of U.S. Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, who was killed during the Benghazi attack, appeared on CNN Tuesday. CNN Newsroom host Carol Costello repeatedly badgered him about Donald Trump’s feud with Khizr Khan, and whether Trump should apologize. Transcript below, via CNN.

“I know who should apologize, and that would be Hillary Clinton, for lying to the American families who lost their loved ones as well as to the American public,” Woods said.And I’m sure when the election comes out next year, they’re going to have to make the decision, who should they vote for, based upon who will do the best job of defending this country.

COSTELLO: Right.

WOODS: And I think the whole reason …

COSTELLO: Do you, do you think, Sir …

WOODS: … Clinton proved at Benghazi that she was incapable of protecting 35 of her own employees. So how could she possibly protect 330 million Americans at home?

COSTELLO: Do you think that Mr. Trump should apologize to Mr. Khan?

WOODS: You know, I really don’t know what’s been said. I haven’t seen a T.V. set since last Monday or Tuesday … 

COSTELLO: So Eric Trump is saying that his father sort of apologized by calling Khan’s son a hero. And that Donald Trump has also sacrificed for this country.

WOODS: Well I would agree with what Mr. Trump said, definitely Khan was an American hero. He was a patriotic American, and he was also a moderate Muslim.

COSTELLO: But should Mr. Trump apologize?

WOODS: You know, like I say, I don’t know what he originally said, and I don’t know what he’s said since then. I — I know who should apologize, and that would be Hillary Clinton, for lying to the American families who lost their loved ones, as well as to the American public. You know, she’s …

COSTELLO: Do you …

WOODS: … in fact, she’s even doubled down and called us liars. Which is not appropriate at all. Because like I said, either she’s lying …

COSTELLO: Who are you endorsing this election?

WOODS: Well my son would still be alive if Mrs. Clinton was performing her job properly, as Secretary of State. So in good conscience I cannot vote for the person who was directly responsible for the death of my son. There is only two choices, and obviously I support Donald Trump.

And the main reason is because national security, as well as the economy, are the two most important issues that voters are going to have to decide upon next November.

COSTELLO: And just the last question I’ll ask you, do you wish that Mr. Trump would stop talking about the Khans now?

WOODS: You know, when Hillary Clinton on several occasions, has called the Benghazi victims’ families liars, would that be — should she apologize for that?

That exchange, ladies and gentlemen, is why so many of us have to depend on foreign news sources to find out what’s really going on in our own country.

 

 

Go here to read the comments.  Imagine just how deep in the pocket of the Democrat party this woman has to be in order to attempt to use the parent of one of the heroes of Benghazi who died due to the inaction of Hillary Clinton and others in the Obama administration, and who were then lied to by Clinton that the attack was because of an anti-Mohammed video in the United States, as a weapon against Donald Trump.  Despicable doesn’t even begin to cover it.

  1. I have said it before. Carol Costello is a no talent former infobabe. She dropped out of Kent State’s journalism school in the 1980s when she landed a job at WAKR TV in Akron. She parlayed that into news anchor jobs in Columbus and Baltimore before going to CNN. Now she is a middle aged left wing crank.

    The media will NEVER go after the Clintons. There is enough dirt on them to lock them up forever but it will NEVER happen. The Democrats are organized crime. The ABA is their legal team. The media is their public relations arm. Hollywood produces their propaganda. Big business, long believed by many to be in the thrall of the GOP (insert laughter) has never hesitated to pay tribute to the Democrats and many wealthy business executives, and it seeems every Hollywood half-wit, are quasi-Socialists.

    Yeah, I know what people here think of Trump. Had the feckless GOP put forth better candidates we might have had a better presidential candidate.

  2. “Yeah, I know what people here think of Trump.”

    I think he is going to smash Hillary in the Fall and be a terrible President. However, I also think that Clinton would be worse. As I predicted, Democrats are doing their worst to push me in Trump’s direction. They haven’t succeeded-yet. However, the sheer hypocrisy surrounding this campaign when it comes to judging the two candidates is nauseating to behold.

  3. I, like many others, will probably vote for Trump in large part because of the totally biased press and the hollywood twits. I just want to laugh at them after the election – hope I can.

  4. That exchange, ladies and gentlemen, is why so many of us have to depend on foreign news sources to find out what’s really going on in our own country.
    Just don’t forget to watch THEM just as closely as you watch the ones here; Russia isn’t funding a bunch of news sites because they’re nice people, and even innocent bias can cause issues.

  5. I’m guessing ms costello is a pretty nice person, loved by her family etc. but her unrelenting attempts to force the conversation with Mr. Woods was a harassment, a way of bullying that can lead weaker persons to give in and whimper “yeah … but” and give the sound bite the CNN organization is looking for.

  6. I’m not so sure Trump will win. Right now, I doubt it.

    Costello is just plain nasty and has hit middle age without a husband or kids. She will die an old maid. No doubt this irks her.

  7. At this point in an election cycle, polls are pretty meaningless, at least that is the position of President Dukakis:

    United States presidential election, 1988

    1988

    Month

    George H. W. Bush (R) %

    Michael Dukakis (D) %

    March 52% 40%
    April 45% 43%
    May 38% 54%
    June 38% 52%
    41% 46%
    July 41% 47%
    37% 54%
    August 42% 49%
    September 49% 41%
    47% 42%
    October 50% 40%
    November 56% 44%
    Actual result 53% 46%

  8. It isn’t all about the polls. The Democrat public relations machine is running at optimum efficiency. Trump is no skilled politician and the Clintons have an attack machine that destroys everyone (except Obumbler) going back to Arkansas and the late 1970s.

  9. I cannot say this from experience, simply because I avoid watching much mainstream media. Nonetheless I find that people who “get” their news from such sources are quite uninformed. C. Costello certainly seems agenda driven in this interview. Mr. Woods handled the situation in an admirable manner. I don’t think I would have kept my composure as well as he did.

  10. Having been a democrat and a democrat for life and an editor i’ve been around that mulberry bush and recall a quote from a famous journalist.
    I just looked it up:
    “I think being a liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, non-committed to a cause – but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; it’s a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if they’re not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If they’re preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they can’t be very good journalists; that is, if they carry it into their journalism.” (Ron Powers)
    .
    In the self reassurance that goes on among liberal journalists — they don’t admit that are not non-doctrinaire, but are in fact committed leftists.
    As I re-read mr. Powers quote today I see that part of the reason liberalism is a sin is that it believes nothing and is detached from reality.

  11. “Trump is no skilled politician”

    Correct, and that is one of several reasons why I think Trump is likely to prevail. As for the Clinton smear machine, Trump raised 82 million dollars last month, just a smidge behind Hillary. His average donation was $61.00 over the internet. His attacks against Hillary are soon going to be matching hers against him. Additionally Trump thrives on bad publicity. This is a unique year and Trump is a unique candidate.

  12. I agree with Donald. Trump should be smart enough to stop shooting himself and Hillary is just dumb enough to become over confident. Plus maybe she will go all epileptic on TV. Anyway, it’s way too early to write Donald off. And another thing, the media might just give him a boost so the race stays interesting and ratings high.
