    Default What Donald Trump’s Victory Means for the Mainstream Media

    After a long night that ended up with a clear Trump victory, I think it’s safe enough to say that, from now on, there are going to be some radical changes in the relationship between the American people and Mainstream Media (MSM).

    Here there are the following 15 talking points that should be considered (in a random order):

    (1) The MSM has always presented itself as the holder of Truth. Reality has shown that MSM has been engaged for way too long in a war with Truth, and MSM has lost this war.

    (2) The MSM has portrayed Hillary Clinton as a person exonerated from criminal responsibility for her numerous acts of corruption and illegal activities over time. Reality has indicated that she has jeopardized national security, and has threatened certain individuals, perceived as dangerous or compromising for her own political convenience.

    (3) The MSM has presented Donald Trump as an isolated, exotic character, unrelated to the world’s current major concerns (particularly in Europe, but also in Asia and Africa), such as: Islamic terrorism, massive immigration (particularly from Muslim countries), and the assault against Christianity. Reality has shown that Trump is, indeed, a true American Mr. Brexit.

    (4) The MSM has presented populism as a marginal trend in the American society. Reality has proven that the majorities of the electorates of both parties, Republican and Democratic, consist in populist voters, who support anti-Establishment candidates (Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders).

    (5) The MSM has followed Hillary Clinton and portrayed – narratively and statistically – more than half of the country’s population as a “basket of deplorables,” in sharp contrast with “the majority of the American people.” Reality has shown that the so-called majority – ideologically and racially – consists in an accumulation of several minority groups.

    (6) The MSM has threatened the “deplorables” with many Hollywood darlings moving out the country if the candidate of the “deplorables” were to win. Post-election reality will force those darlings of the Dream Factory City to fulfill their vocal promises (otherwise, they should shut the hell up and just sing or act!).

    (7) The MSM has presented as a fait accompli the idea that winning televised presidential debates organized by MSM is a solid predictor of winning the presidency. Reality has illustrated that this has become a myth (especially after episodes of Donna Brazile-type, where party operatives, in cahoots with the same MSM, leak information about people’s debate questions to certain preferred candidate).

    (8) The MSM has instilled the idea that political household names – like Kennedy, Clinton or Bush – are invincible per se. Reality has shown that non-politicians, like Trump, can take down in just one electoral race two powerful political-dynastic names (Bush and Clinton), which had ruled the country for 16 years in a row.

    (9) The MSM has trained the electorate to think that “temperament” is a bad thing and “experience” is a good thing. Reality has proven that “temperament” involves a powerful character, strong values, determination, contempt for political correctness, while “experience” (if it’s bad) is useless (and so is “low energy”).

    (10) The MSM has accustomed the American people to a politically correct discourse. Reality has proven that new standards need to be adopted: “tell it like it is,” “high energy” and “being unpredictable” have become a “must” in order to overcome the voters’ boredom and apathy. Benjamin Franklin is credited with the famous quote: “Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.”

    (11) The MSM has constructed a narrative according to which certain constituents (like minorities, union workers) can be regarded as “plantation workers” and certain constituencies (like “the Blue Wall” – Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin) are Democratic Holy Lands; the reality has shown that nobody and nothing can be taken for granted anymore.

    (12) The MSM has created the narrative that Hillary Clinton is the inevitable president, who would win by a landslide (predicted with a 90% probability), and the Democrats would take the U.S. Senate, too. Reality has shown that Republicans can win the presidency and both houses of the Congress (for the first time since November 1928!). However, this does not exempt the Republicans from reforming their own party.

    (13) The MSM has instilled the idea that America means mainly New York, The Bay Area and Hollywood. Reality is that the core of America is exactly in-between.

    (14) The MSM years ago switched the party traditional colors to red for Conservatives and blue for Democrats (with the late Tim Russert being credited as one of the coiners). Reality is that the original colors (supported ideologically by the British and continental European tradition) used to be blue for Conservatives and red for Democrats. Time has come now for the two colors to go back to their original parties.

    (15) The MSM has accustomed the electorate to the toxic idea that a Trump presidency will be the “hell on earth.” Reality will show liberals that they should not moan and weep because their country has not been lost, but rather saved. And it will be greater again and more prosperous than ever!

    As a consequence of all of the above, the MSM has lost irremediably the right to be called “mainstream.”

    The MSM is dying a slow and painful death due to it's fear mongering, false sensationalism and the increasing lack of credibility. Viewership continues to plummet in favor of more accurate sources of information. This election has just brightened the spotlight on their nefarious agenda.

    Althena, thanks for your very elaborate analysis of the MSM's flawed position and relationship with a vast number of the American people. Your breakdown appears to me as both accurate and telling. However, I am very skeptical that the MSM will bring about "radical changes" in their relationship with the American people.

    Personally, I have my doubts that the MSM will change at all, mainly because its controllers (the cabal) along with its owners, managers, staff and investors are totally out of touch with what Zbigniew Brzezinski (NWO) referred to as the "global political awakening". They simply cannot understand or comprehend it. They live in the land of cognitive dissonance.

    Rather than wake up and recognize how bad they look now, I believe it is more likely the MSM will remain totally delusional and continue to highlight terror, racism, hatred, sexism and civil strife. As we know, bringing down the USA is the NWO's real agenda because the USA as a superpower stands in the way of a world government. In other words, the MSM will continue to die a slow and painful death.

    Definition of MSM - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mainstream_media

    Quote Mainstream media (MSM) is a term and abbreviation used to refer collectively to the various large mass news media that influence a large number of people, and both reflect and shape prevailing currents of thought.
    Although the current belief is that MSM is JUST large organizations, such as large news conglomerates, including newspapers and broadcast media, it seems to me smaller organizations who "influence a large number of people to reflect and shape prevailing currents of thought" can become MSM-LIKE.

    MSM are paid shills - when those who pay feel the advertisement produced by MSM needs to change, they will dictate the change to MSM who will duly follow the instructions by those who pay them.

    In my humble OPINION these would be some examples that fit the MSM definition:

    MSNBC - It is owned by the NBCUniversal News Group, a unit of the NBC-Universal Television Group division of NBCUniversal, all of which are owned by Comcast. MSNBC and msnbc.com were founded in 1996 as a partnership between Microsoft and General Electric's NBC unit, hence the network's naming.

    FOX - Murdoch and his family own both 21st Century Fox and News Corp through the Murdoch Family Trust. Fox is also a part-owner of the streaming video service Hulu.

    CNN - The Cable News Network (CNN) is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.

    It was founded in 1980 by American media proprietor Ted Turner as a 24-hour cable news channel;however, by April 2016, a CNN executive officially described the channel as "no longer a TV news network" and instead as "a 24-hour global multiplatform network."Upon its launch, CNN was the first television channel to provide 24-hour news coverage, and was the first all-news television channel in the United States. While the news channel has numerous affiliates, CNN primarily broadcasts from the Time Warner Center in New York City, and studios in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles. Its headquarters at the CNN Center in Atlanta is only used for weekend programming.

    ABC - The Walt Disney Company owns the ABC television network; cable networks including ESPN, the Disney Channel, SOAPnet, A&E and Lifetime; 277 radio stations, music- and book-publishing companies; film-production companies Touchstone, Miramax and Walt Disney Pictures; Pixar Animation Studios.

    CBS - CBS Corporation is controlled by Sumner Redstone through National Amusements, which also controls the current Viacom.

    CBC - he Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, branded as CBC/Radio-Canada, is a Canadian crown corporation that serves as the national public radio and television broadcaster.

    BBC - owned by the Government of the United Kingdom - The British Broadcasting Corporation is a British public service broadcaster. It is headquartered at Broadcasting House in London, and is the world's oldest national broadcasting organisation.

    DirecTV - AT&T is new owner of DirecTV.

    Veterans Today - Founded in 2012 by Jerry and Laura McCall - https://www.facebook.com/Veterans-To...17822620/about (see note 1 below)

    RT.Com - State-Government owned RIA Novosti news agency, which founded RT in 2005, is one of the largest in Russia. Its chairperson is Svetlana Mironyuk, who has modernised the agency since her appointment in 2003. RIA Novosti has stated it helped establish RT, but is "neither a sponsor nor a backer of Russia Today." The creation of RT was a part of a larger public relations effort by the Russian Government that was intended to improve the image of Russia abroad. RT was conceived by former media minister Mikhail Lesin, and Russian president Vladimir Putin's press spokesperson Aleksei Gromov.

    Dish Network - Dish Network is an American direct-broadcast satellite service provider owned by EchoSphere. The company provides satellite television, satellite Internet access, audio programming, and interactive television services. EchoSphere is responsible for digiCyper encryption, which was one particular technology locked satellite transmissions to require subscriptions.

    There are many more - research will show the networking presented through MSM represents the paying advertisers and the owners.

    Is there a conspiracy between the advertisers and the owners? Collusion? That would be a great topic to discuss..

    --- update ---

    The REPORTERS on the other hand, are not the owners.. The reporters have to make do with what their EDITOR tells them is acceptable or not. Many reporters go to FORUMS such as this for ACCURATE DATA and to take the pulse of the public (and the members) to gauge where the trends are. Many reporters are great folks looking for answers.. the owners tho of MSM, and the advertisers "paying the bill" ... IMHO... what is the agenda?

    - the paid shill - http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Mainstream_media
    Quote Mainstream media is a catchall term referring to television networks (especially broadcast), newspapers, magazines, radio, and often the movie industry. It is so named because it is designed to appeal to as large an audience as possible, hence "mainstream."

    Quote Journalists admit intelligence services, lobbies and advertisers dictate MSM content
    Note - (1)

    Quote Veterans Today (VT), a popular “alternative media” website, is experiencing a mass defection of its contributors, among whom are retired U. of Wisconsin-Madison professor Jim Fetzer, federal whistleblower Stew Webb, author Dean Henderson, CIA whistleblower Gene “Chip” Tatum, and Bruce Campbell.
    Quote from: http://govtslaves.info/mass-defectio...car-accidents/

    blogger Chemtrail tells it:

    Stew Webb, Jim Fetzer, Dean Henderson, Gene Tatum, and Bruce Campbell come together in this 3 hour special to give the proof that Gordon Duff is a lying fraud that only wants to try to control the alternative media so he can put out his known lies. Gordon Duff has put out lies such as vaccines are good for you, Jade Helm is no big deal, Jesus never existed, he protects Lee Wanta, he runs security for Africa and that he would never censor his writers!

    Here is Jim Fetzer’s account of the mutiny at Veterans Today:

    As a journalist and editor for Veterans Today, the Senior Editor of which is Gordon Duff, I was astonished when he trashed an article by another former Marine, Robert O’Dowd, by adding an “Editor’s Note” claiming that what O’Dowd had to say was uninformed, unsourced and misleading, since he (Gordon Duff) had “checked with his sources” and they all told him that JADE HELM was an innocuous “training op”.

    After doing my own research, I published an article about it, “JADE HELM is NOT a ‘normal training drill’”, where I was not surprised that he added another “Editor’s Note”–this time twice as long and even more venomous–trashing my article, too. After it received 600 reads in the first hour (which hinted it would become #1), he took it down.The next day, he tossed me out of Veterans Today.
