But it's different when WE do it!

The opposition media is, predictably, unhappy that the God-Emperor is spurning them:
The mainstream media isn’t liking the new set up at the White House: Lesser name news outlets are being called on during press briefings, rather than the old, established bellwethers.

During his press conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Donald Trump called on two news outlets: WJLA a local ABC news affiliate, and the Daily Caller. Both failed to ask him about the fate of his national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, who has been marred in a controversy that he spoke to Russian authorities before Mr. Trump took office.

And the mainstream media immediately pounced – saying Mr. Trump was picking favorites in order to avoid questioning on Mr. Flynn.

“By handpicking reporters, Trump manages to get through a news conference without being asked about Flynn,” New York Times reporter Peter Baker lamented on Twitter – failing to mention that all U.S. presidents handpick reporters.

Bloomberg’s Angela Greiling Keane helped him clarify.“By *handpicking* friendly reporters. To be fair, the previous WH also handpicked reporters. But it was very different than this,” she tweeted.
Speaking of media alternatives, GabTV has announced its initial lineup for this week. The Darkstream will be on Gab tonight and Wednesday at 7 PM EST here.

Obama supposedly was still just a candidate when he sent that retired Adm Miller to Iran to talk to the mullahs in charge.

If Trump sent Flynn to Russia to talk to them while he was in transition AFTER the election, then seems to me, that is a whole other kettle of fish.

They are trying to slam Stephen Miller for not answering questions about Flynn yesterday too.

The press really needs to get a clue. The Oroville Dam thing is CA is a great example. It took two days for the press from Sacramento (70 miles south of the dam) to report correctly that the damage to the dam was the spillway...NOT the dam. they are separated by a minimum of 300 yards. The break in the spillway is nearly 600 yards from the edge of the dam. And they wonder why no one cares about them and their whining.

My family and I live about 25 miles north of the dam and are 700 feet above the surface of the lake. We are good!

As long as Trump can't find anyone better than Stephen "Cue Card" Miller or Kelly Ann "Bowling Green!!" Conway to represent him in the media, who he chooses to call on in his question time won't matter. He keeps giving the media every opportunity to sit back and let him do their bidding by demonstrating that he's filled his administration with buffoons.

And yet, when Obama falsely accused the supreme court of allowing influence of foreign corporations in our elections (Citizens United...), to which Justice Alito mouthed "not true", the press was in high dudgeon over Alito's rudeness, not Obama's disrespect and unfair politicization of the supreme court.

How could they possibly think they could get any traction on the Flynn thing? It's completely insane. With weeks left in office Obama imposes sanctions on Russia on the basis of crazy allegations with zero evidence, allegations he had previously admitted had no evidence, then a representative of the incoming administration talks to the Russian ambassador, the Russians don't freak out, Flynn downplays the conversation as was his duty in such a sensitive diplomatic matter. And anyone is supposed to think that this is a problem?! Rep. Schiff (D-CA) is even whining that Flynn might have used encryption, because this would keep our spies from listening in! Unbelievable!

Blogger Thucydides February 13, 2017 6:50 PM  

I think the president is manoeuvring the media into a kill box.

Look at their frothing reaction to investigation of voter fraud, claiming shrilly that "there is no evidence" despite the very clear litany of evidence of irregularities and abuse in Michigan (uncovered, thanks in part to the Green Party's call for a recount).

When they have staked out such a hard position, the evidence dropping on them will strip away whatever credibility they might still have among the apolitical Americans. Grabbing the centre of gravity like that will be a crippling blow against the media class.

Rinse and repeat for the bureaucracy, academia and the former political class.

I am worried that Trump doesn't realize that playing by the old political rules will sink him. The immigration ban that he has so far let slide, and now this?

This is small potatoes to be sure, but that raises the question as to where and when do the big issues get dealt with?

Where is the FBI on the Clinton Foundation?

I was never a big fan of Flynn, mostly because of his reported close friendly relationship with Erdogan. Harward would be more suitable to the position, in my estimation. He has an intimate understanding of irregular (4G) warfare, a good working relationship with Mattis as well as a working knowledge of and connections within the CIA, FBI and NSA. He would be exactly the kind of guy you would want to help drain a leaky swamp.

I thought it was a bad sign when Ziocon Flynn came on board and hoped he wouldn't last, but his appointment soothed the fears of some very dangerous people in the deep state during the critical transition period. This "scandal" provides a pretext to get rid of him, but I don't like letting the media feel like they got a win, especially with so little effort and such a nothing allegation. OTOH, maybe it'll take the edge off their desperation for a news cycle or so.

Casualties of war happen --more will come on both sides. It's like a football game: at the start, neither team has won, but every play is hyped -- every completed pass, every tackle -- is cheered by the crowd and the players high five each other. But in the end, despite all that cheering and high fiving, only one team is the winner and one team is the loser.
Trump is playing the long-game. He wins because he's always moving, always on attack. He doesn't sacrifice the good for the perfect -- he makes a good plan and violently executes it, making adjustments on the fly with speed as needed.
Flynn was a self-inflicted wound. It doesn't matter that the substance of the telephone call was a nothing-burger -- Flynn lied to/misled Pence about it, Pence went on TV and spread the lie. Of course Trump's enemies/Obama loyalists would leak the transcript to expose the lie.
Flynn had to go so Trump could go back on the offense.
I'm not going to fall into despair over every battle loss -- winning the war is what's important.

This sort of thing was bound to happen and will probably happen again. People make mistakes and get fired or quit. In this case, Flynn lied and made everyone look bad. Getting him out is not a victory for the MSM, it's a victory for truth. I don't think it reflects on Trump, though his detractors will try to spin it that way. There's no evidence he knew about the lie.
