"That is our job"

A gaffe is when someone mistakenly says something they believe to be true. The media really is the enemy of the people and has been for a long time. A reminder from February 2017:
The hosts of MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' commented on President Trump's efforts to "undermine the media." Co-host Mika Brzezinski commented Wednesday morning that she is upset to see President Trump has moved in on the media's turf when it comes to the area of mind control.

"He is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts," she said about Trump. "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," she noted, referring to the media.
The entire purpose of the media is to control what people think. That's why they are so enraged by the God-Emperor correctly describing them as Fake News. Everything they say is a lie. Everything they say is meant to establish a false narrative. Everything they report is intended to spin things in a manner to influence people's behavior.

Look at the NPR hit piece on Chuck Dixon and me. Even though Amanda Robb obtained nothing effective that she could use against me in the three hours she spent interrogating me, she and her co-conspirator still successfully planted the false narrative of dark money in the minds of people like Jason Yungbluth and IndieGoGo.
Al Letson: So Vox Day claims to have gotten money to produce these comic books through a crowdfunding website. I'm on that site and it says he started off trying to raise $25000, but he raised close to $236000. That just amazes me.

Amanda Robb: It's actually pretty unbelievable.

Al Letson: Where is that money coming from?

Amanda Robb: Well that's the $236000 question. It's very hard to tell. Most of it's from a anonymous donors and a lot of it comes in very large increments, some up to $5000 each which is weird because the average donation to a crowdfunding project is about $66.

Al Letson: But we don't know if he actually raised that money. It looks like it, but we don't know that for a fact.

Amanda Robb: I think that's a really good point because Alt-Hero was raising money on a crowdfunding site called, and apparently Vox Day helped create it. It's a private site. It's totally black box. There's no way to find out who made most of the donations, where the money came from, where it went, if it actually existed. I did find out that the company that processed the credit card payments decided to stop working with FreeStarter a few months back, and I tried to get in touch with the company to find out why and they wouldn't talk to me. Then Alt-Hero had already way surpassed its fundraising goal and is publishing now a series of comic books.
First, I didn't help create Freestartr. Fake news. Second, notice what Robb conveniently failed to report. She claims that the average crowdfunding backing - not a donation, also fake news - is  $66. But while she mentions a) the total, and b) the largest backing amount of the Alt-Hero campaign, she completely fails to note that since there were 2,190 backers, the average backing for Alt-Hero was only $107. That's certainly higher than the average but it is not even remotely remarkable; the leading boardgame now being crowdfunded on Kickstarter has an average backing of $101 and a retro sports watch that is trending with 20 days left has an average backing of $248.

Again, fake news, false narrative. Mika Brzezinski inadvertently admitted the truth about the media. They actually are trying to control exactly what people think and they are ferociously opposed to anyone who stands in their way and prevents them from doing that.

The amusing thing is how she belatedly tried to backtrack and control what people think about what she actually said about controlling what people think.
Mika Brzezinski@morningmika
Today I said it's the media's job to keep President Trump from making up his own facts, NOT that it's our job to control what people think.

Mika Brzezinski@morningmika
 Of course, that is obvious from the transcript but some people want to make up their own facts. SAD!
Again, fake news. She quite literally said it was the media's job to "actually control exactly what people think." There is no possible grammatical construction or interpretation that allows any objective reading of her statement to conclude that she actually said it was the media's job to prevent President Trump from making up his own facts.

But instead of claiming that she misspoke, which at least would have been a credible lie, she chose to try to create an observably false narrative about her own words. Meta fake news!

It takes a special level of dedication to lying to make someone think she can convince viewers that what she said on tape isn't what she actually said. Something tells me Mika is so used to double-think and those school-of-fish narrative pivots that she genuinely doesn't get why people won't join her in the lie.

How does one "make up facts," anyway? One doesn't create truth, the truth is there and one simply observes it, reports on it, shares it, what have you.

If one needs to "make up facts," then those aren't facts, those are fabrications, fake facts, literal Fake News.

Even her "correction" statement looks goofy: she's stating that it isn't Trump's job to make Fake News, that's the MSM's job. Jesus, these people are stupid.

There are stages that the average observer goes through vis a vis the media. Starts out dazzled by the production values and emotional dynamic.

Then one matures and uses personal knowledge/experience to bring some skepticism to the matter - looking for hidden motive, considering alternative views.

Today, after what we have all seen by the Sorosian media over the past decade has resulted in the stage of derision and contempt for the media. I look at them as more than just useless - they are actively working against my interests and deserve the fate of obscurity.

This ties into the education system which works to prepare the citizen for a lifetime of ingesting the toxic globalist message.

The formula for Fake News (this could use some rhetorical, mass-consumption tinkering but it is the basic architecture):

1.) There is a fact;
2.) The PoFN (Purveyor of Fake News) cuts that fact to the shape of the Narrative they wish to espouse;
3.) That 'shape' is analyzed and interpreted;
4.) That analysis and interpretation is editorialized;
5.) The resulting editorialization is presented as Factual information.

When the time comes, there is only one simple rule to be applied to these vipers, for they are truly minions of Satan: Caedite eos (That's Latin for Journalist + Rope + Tree. Some assembly required). While in many ways he has failed to deliver in the past two years, one thing that cannot be denied is that Trump has a far more effective foe of this nest of snakes than anyone previous to him. He's played them masterfully. Let him keep pushing their buttons so they appear increasingly ludicrous even to the super-sized dodos who gaze mindlessly at the electric ouija-board for the stupefying 'reality teevee' and endless games of kneeling kneegrows.

@12 Kong. OK. I agree it would have been nice to see everything done that the GE wanted to do done in just 2 years. But, look at what all he HAS done.
What's going to be very interesting and entertaining, is what happens after the mid-terms are out of the way. Particularly if its a red wave, or, even a mini red wave. Heck, even if the house was lost I suspect GE would find a way to make it come out smelling like roses. I stand with the GE and the Plan.

Blogger Damelon Brinn November 03, 2018 9:32 AM  

Trump's greatest accomplishment is destroying the media.

It's huge, and I think most of us still overestimate their power. There have been several times in the last year that I've cringed at a headline or a Trump tweet, thinking, "They're really going to make hay with this one." And they shriek, and their followers on social media shriek, and it passes, and the next day they move on to the next outrage. Every single time, the effect was less than I feared.

So now when someone worries, "They'll trick the troops into killing a bunch of people at the border and the media will hang Trump with it," I just think, "Like they did with 'kids in cages'? Like they did with 'erasing transsexuals'? Like they did with 'serial rapist'?" We had a literal MAGA-hat wearing "bomber," the perfect Trumpkin caricature except for his skin color -- which they called white at first anyway -- and there wasn't even a noticable blip in early voting.

Trump's approval rating is better than Obama's at this point, even though Obama had slavering media support for two years and Trump has gotten the opposite. No one whose mind isn't already locked into a left turn is listening anymore.

Even liberals aren't happy with them, because they're convinced the media is being too fair to both sides. They have to believe that, because the alternative is to realize that they're outnumbered by people who simply disagree without being brainwashed. So they're pissed whenever the media aren't in 24/7 get-Trump mode.

Everyone hates the media.

Blogger Damelon Brinn November 03, 2018 9:49 AM  

"while unemployment and the economy worsens.."

They've become the fan-fiction-writing enemy of the people. Yesterday WaPo (I think) had an article about someone who knows someone who says someone told him he heard the president say some rude things about blacks. Apparently this is their big reveal after a year of claiming they had a tape of him saying the n-word. Early in the piece it says "the soon-to-be ex-president." I was confused, wondering if this was an article about a different country, or a speculative piece about the future. No, just a true believer in impeachment, apparently, writing for one of the major news organs.

A couple days before that, CNN carried a piece that included quotes they thought Trump would say after losing the midterms. They admitted they were making them up, but still -- they were making them up, and putting them in quotation marks, so in this fast-reading, screencap-sharing world, there's little difference. And a few days ago the NY Times ran a fantasy piece about the president being assassinated by the Secret Service.

They run these things in their opinion sections and claim that absolves them of responsibility, as if everyone notices the little "opinion" graphic up in the corner or the different Twitter handle. As if the distinction is just as clear as when you used to open your newspaper and there was clear physical separation between the opinion page and the rest, even if they didn't respect it.

And then they want to fact-check every word Trump says, expecting him to carry around proof that there are criminals with the caravan, for instance. They're ridiculous.

The only reason that hasn't happened yet is that the reward does not outweigh the risk.

Yet.

The same can be said for all the other far left idiots, like ANTIFA and your typical humanities professor. They still exist because the risk is to great for them to be eliminated.

If the left continues on it's campaign to socially ostracize everyone that counters the Narrative, they will find out what happens when one of their victims thinks they have nothing to lose by eliminating their tormentor.

Like, say, if just two veterans from one of the groups that regularly clash with ANTIFA decide to really express their displeasure...

Serial news shows often consist of a series of reports (called scenes if you are doing a movie). Around 1990 I began to notice that among the various reports in a CBS new broadcast there was always one that was deliberately misleading. And once the pattern of behavior was identified, I found it easy to pick out. Apparently they had to have one to secure their credentials among the lefties. It was there tell.

That was the good old days. Now with some frequency we have the point of view, or big lie to express it that way. The lie is simply a prior assumption that colors everything.

And some writers do the same thing. Some place in the writing there has to be a tell that identifies the ideology of the writer. Now days I simply quit reading when I come to the tell because I don't care to be lied to. And misleading information is worse than ignorance.

I got in an argument with a journalist before shutting down my Facebook acct last week...on the subject of fake news. The long and short of it was that she smugly claimed most people just lacked reading comprehension skills and that was why they thought the news was fake. She acted like a goddamn queen kindly telling me I was too stupid to get it, but that it was okay because her life goal was to educate people like me. That's not why I shut down my Facebook, but I am tired of the moralizing and pretense at ethics. So galling. The argument ensued after a Facebook friend was interviewed in a Guardian article highlighting all the good ethical pro-women never-Trumpers at Liberty University. This is the media all day long, and Facebook all day long.

Reminds me of Roosh reinforcing the "don't talk to the media" message:

They are now forced to become direct activists. This is how they do it: they ask you for an interview and then use that as a pretext to contact your social media and business partners with a negative spiel that is intended to scare the companies with bad press.

It's clear that this part of Robb's attack was largely triggered by the perceived threat of an alternative crowd funding platform free of the strict ideological constraints imposed by companies like Kickstarter (or GoFundMe). The other aspect that's rather interesting is her conviction that there simply "must" be something shady about the way the money was raised.

It's almost as if she knows that mainstream crowdfunding (or donation) platforms are used to disguise payoffs/ launder money, and is simply projecting. How much did Blasey Ford get via GoFundMe again? $1M +?
Though, to be fair, it may be just the idea of anonymous donors in this context that enrages her. If they can't identify targets for direct action, how can they perform the one of the most important functions of the media? How can they Shut It Down?

Makes sense. It doesn't really start with the fact, though. Try this:
1. There is a Narrative.
2. Cherry pick, distort, or make up facts (or "facts") to support that narrative.
3. Some of the filtering process takes place at the primary level -- deciding what facts are "news" in the first place -- but much of it kicks in at the local >> national transition.
4. Selection bias/ memory hole can be as effective as lying/ spin -- and is much less obvious.

@3

The difficulty here is that the English language has no word for a fact that is not true or may not be true. This can cause a certain amount of logical confusion, and typically the concept has to be expressed using several words. For example: "Lets say for the sake of argument that [whatever]" is one way of expressing the concept. An assumed truth is what is being expressed by this statement, treated as temporarily true for the sake of analysis.

^Facts

That thing was 'racist' <-- not a fact but presented as such, inline with the Narative.

Obviously, yes, the process can begin with the Narrative (which strictly red-meatest outlets often do, e.g. Salon). One way or another, however, the Media wants carte blanche over the very definition of "Factual" -- and anything that enters the semantic orbit thereof -- not "Narrative".

There was some news faking going on at VICE and they got caught by the Daily Caller. Davis Winkie wrote a story in VICE that he couldn't vote because of Tennessee's voter ID law because he had a Georgia driver's license. See, he had a Georgia license because he was from GA but was going to college in TN and had to keep his GA license so his parents could keep him on their insurance and the car he was driving was still registered to them in GA because it was too expensive to re-register it.

So, there's tax fraud (not registering the car in TN) and insurance fraud (not living at the address claimed). And on top of that, he said he registered to vote in TN using their on-line registration system in 2016, when the system didn't exist until 2017. Plus, he could have gotten a free TN photo ID to use for the election if he'd wanted to.

Most of the talking heads in MSM, Brzezinski included, are so thoroughly indoctrinated they are incapable of realizing their true role; they are both a product and an agent of the global agenda.

Enough time has passed since WW2, several generations, so that such people are common not only in media, but everywhere: education, entertainment, and religion included. Let's face it, at some point in the last couple of decades they “won”; America is at critical mass with the indroctrinated and it has been transformed in their image. Of course it’s all a lie, and as with all lies it will collapse of its own putrid mass as we begin to see with the election of GE. What comes next is anyone’s guess.

"The difficulty here is that the English language has no word for a fact that is not true or may not be true."

The word "fact" itself, as in "statement of fact", means a statement that can be either true or false, and is testable (as in, if it were false it would be possible to test and prove it false). It's part of the scientific lexicon that has been deliberately corrupted and/or "mis"understood for decades.

It's not that English lacks the word, it's that the word has been vastly abused as "this is a verifiable statement I am making" with an unspoken and generally forgotten "that may be verifiably false", when it's not outright impossible to verify either way. They often depend on people believing that the word is synonymous with "truth", and have even managed to have many dictionaries changed to reflect that effect.

The word as commonly used today is literally a way to imply "truth" without saying something that actually means "truth".

CNN demonstrates -- and all but admits -- to the Fake News Formula with their Twitter skirmish with Don Jr. over an advertisement:

CNN refused to run this ad ... I guess they only run fake news and won’t talk about real threats that don’t suit their agenda. Enjoy. Remember this on Tuesday. #vote#voterepublican,” Trump Jr. tweeted Saturday.

CNN's response:

CNN has made it abundantly clear in its editorial coverage that this ad is racist. When presented with an opportunity to be paid to take a version of this ad, we declined. Those are the facts,” the network’s communications team tweeted in response.

CNN says the advertisement is racist -- because they said so -- while splicing this assertion with the sterile, straightforward fact of them having rejected the ad, thereby psychologically associating the latter objectively true act with the highly tremulous assertion that the ad they rejected was, itself, 'racist.'

Masterfully done. Except, in so doing, CNN necessarily admits to the Narrative of which Don Jr. speaks.
