Man, you gotta hand it to Brain Williams, there doesn’t seem to be any way you can really shame this guy. I think if I had been him and was busted for lying I think I would have just slunk away somewhere and maybe taken a job in the fast-food industry. But nope, not our buddy Brian. However, I think it fair to say that he did take a job at a ‘news’ network that is pretty much the equivalent of working in the fast-food industry. Apparently Williams is now the ‘anchor’ of something called “The 11th Hour’ on MSNBC and it was earlier this week that he was arguing the point that President Trump’s criticisms of the media were “Because when you reduce the media enough in prestige, they — when they do report facts, those facts are diminished.” Prestige? He can’t be serious, can he? Talk about an over-inflated sense of importance. Maybe if our douche bag journalists were actually doing their job they’d be worthy of a bit more respect.
Anyway, it was during a discussion on Trump’s press conference earlier in the day that USA Today ‘Senior Politics Reporter’ Heidi Przybyla stated, “[T]he press provided basically the most essential task that the Founders intended for us to do, which was, we outed a public official, who was lying to the public, about the nature of his contacts about what many would define as a hostile foreign power. That is the most basic function of a free press in this — in our society, and the president’s response to that was to have a semi-meltdown, and to accuse us all of purveying fake news, when in fact, his own actions, which were to fire General Flynn, proved that that news was spot on. It was 100% accurate.” Williams then added, “Because when you reduce the media enough in prestige, they — when they do report facts, those facts are diminished.” Let’s face it, when was the last time anyone in the media demonstrated any interest in reporting the facts?
Williams, as does so many of his ‘colleagues’ in the business of proliferating propaganda, seems to confuse the difference between reporting on actual facts versus knowingly reporting on what are nothing more than lies, because it’s the latter that is more often than not the case today. Williams would not know a fact if it came up and bit him on the ass. And by letting Williams stay on at MSNBC the network accomplishes nothing more than to further even damage it’s already damaged reputation as a genuine ‘news’ organization and reinforces how it is that most Americans recognize it as a network that peddles pure propaganda. But then when you’re MSNBC just how much lower can you really go. Hell, when you’ve got the screwed up lineup they’ve got over there, allowing a known and confirmed liar like Williams to represent your brand is likely not even noticed. I mean they obviously aren’t all that concerned about maintaining any level of credibility.
And let’s face it, despite all of their ‘whining’ when you get right down to it, President Trump has done absolutely nothing to delegitimize our state-controlled media. Hell, they’ve managed to do that all by themselves. There are literally scores of examples, going back decades, where our supposed journalists have deliberately misrepresented the facts in their effort to present what was nothing more than a bit of propaganda referred to as, news. And the purposely skewed coverage of the recent election is simply the most recent example of such biased ‘reporting’. ‘Reporting’ that, I might add, was accentuated by the handing over of debate questions to Hitlery, the personal messages to Hitlery from members of the press and the numerous outright lies told on behalf of Hitlery. All which proves the state-controlled media cannot to be trusted. And by pointing these things out President Trump is merely exposing the media for the hacks that they are.
That dishonest hacks like Brian Williams, Chris Matthews, Lester Holt, Scott Pelley, or any number of others on what is now a long list of many, are still treated as though they have any amount of credibility even after being caught in lie after lie only serves to validate what Trump has said about the current state of 'journalism' in this country. It’s only because our media is so corrupt that Brian Williams is treated seriously by his equally dishonest, feckless peers in the industry. Why should anyone be willing to buy what any of them are selling? Because what they’re selling is nothing more than pure propaganda, or the Democrat Party talking points regarding the particular issue of the day. It most certainly isn’t news, and it most certainly isn’t information that then American people can, in any way, consider as being useful. And far from being the watchdog of government as was originally intended, today it would seem that President Trump serves as watchdog over the media.
Finally, what we are witnessing here, and essentially have been ever since candidate Trump became President Trump, is the collective and very emotional meltdown of a lost and defeated political ideology on its last breath, adrift like a cork in the ocean bobbing aimlessly from rock to rock with no plan, no direction, no clue and no leader. Like a filthy rat, the old dishonest state-controlled media will cling to it until it finally drowns as it sinks below the surface. In the meantime, refusing to adjust to new realities, they lash out like petulant adolescent children demanding respect while deserving none. They wallow in their vulgar and unhinged hysteria; trapped in their echo chamber, telling each other how clever and righteous they are and what rubes those are who disagree. Wearing their ignorance like a badge of honor for all the world to see, these quixotic fools have learned nothing (and I mean absolutely nothing) from their defeat in November 2016.
