Major Media Are Complete Frauds and Look a Hundred Percent Real

By Jerry A. Kane

After listening to what fell out of MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski’s mouth on the Morning Joe, something Stanley Motss said in the film Wag the Dog comes to mind.

Look at that! That is a complete fucking fraud, and it looks a hundred percent real. It’s the best work I’ve ever done in my life, because it’s so honest.”

During a panel discussion about President Donald Trump “trying to undermine the media,” Brzezinski let slip that the media’s “job” is to “actually control exactly what people think.” Here’s a transcribed exchange between Morning Joe host, Joe Scarborough and sidekick, Brzezinski:

SCARBOROUGH:  [W]hat I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.’

BRZEZINSKI:  Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.

Brzezinski’s comment didn’t seem to faze the other panelists. Scarborough went on to say that “Trump’s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin.”

The major media see their roll as gatekeepers for what the People should know and what the People should think about what they know.

Again, from Wag the Dog: Winifred grabs a small television set from Connie and throws it to the ground

Winifred Ames:  Fuck you!

Conrad ‘Connie’ Brean: Leave it alone! What did television ever do to you?

Winifred Ames:  It destroyed the electoral process!

A Demonstration of Media Hypocrisy

Political commentators for MSNBC are now accusing conservative TV and radio hosts of inciting uninformed white Americans to assassinate political leaders. The media meme suggests that the Tea Party and Town Hall protesters’ placards and rhetoric likening Brother O to Hitler is an implicit or a coded call to incite violence against him.

The anti-government, anti-Brother O sentiment expressed by some of the protesters has caused two progressive propagandists to demonstrate their overt hypocrisy. Jolly old Chris “Tingle” Matthews notified talk radio hosts that they would be held accountable for any violence that happens to Brother O. 

In Rachel’s “Mad Mad Mad” Maddow world the right-wing media and the corporate-funded anti-reform movement are invoking political assassination by deliberately and systematically using Hitler as a rhetorical weapon against Brother O and the progressive Democrats in Congress.

Mad Maddow says she’s afraid that the right-wingers don’t understand the implications of their actions and is even more afraid that they do.

If MSNBC’s Chris Tingle and the stark raving mad Maddow are really concerned for Brother O’s well being, why didn’t these political commentators alert Americans to the dangers of the Nazi slogans, Hitler placards, and vituperative language when members of leftist groups used them to demonize George W. Bush and his administration?

Better yet, how would the two peas account for their anti-Bush rhetoric had a leftist “looneytune” “fruitloop” committed a violent act against Bush? Would political commentators have held them responsible for complicity and for unleashing anti-democratic, anti-American forces in this country?

Paul Williams has pieced together a video montage exposing the blatant hypocrisy of leftists’ Chris Tingle and mad Maddow. Williams uses the audio portion of a mad Maddow interview, in which she asks Frank Schaeffer whether or not calling Brother O Hitler is an implicit call for politically motivated violence.

Williams overlays the audio portion with video snippets of demonstrations that occurred when George W. Bush was president; the end result is quite revealing.

The hypocrisy of Chris Tingle, mad Maddow, and Frank Schaeffer is rivaled only by Seth Pecksniff, a character Charles Dickens likened to a sign post, “which is always telling the way to a place, and never goes there.”
