The NY Post has the story: “It was like a f-ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter. “Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said. . . . Understand that these grifters—because that’s what they are—believe they own the news and the truth, even as they’re making it up by the ton. They and their masters—six companies that control 90% of big media—dispense fake reality to the populace 24/7. And now…They’re lost inside their own bubble. They’ve never felt this kind of fury from a president. They don’t know what to do. [Emphasis added.]
. . . . . . .
The final straw here is Steve Bannon, Trump’s new chief strategist and special counselor. The editor of Breitbart, Bannon recently stated in an interview: “The media bubble is the ultimate symbol of what’s wrong with this country. It’s just a circle of people talking to themselves who have no f-ing idea what’s going on. If The New York Times didn’t exist, CNN and MSNBC would be a test pattern. The Huffington Post and everything else is predicated on The New York Times. It’s a closed circle of information from which Hillary Clinton got all her information – and her confidence. That was our opening.”
Phi Beta Iota: We are in transition away from a totally corrupt mainstream (and progressive media), all of which refused to cover the story of the year — how our electoral system is rigged twelve different ways — all of whom sold out to the Establishment that thought it could force Hillary Clinton on the public — the Establishment included a complicit Republican National Committee (RNC) — those leaked emails are coming soon. Micah Sirfy has it right when he points out that the Internet has not yet empowered citizens with the ability to discern, share, and make sense of facts, but those tools are on the way, despite the best efforts of Facebook, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and Twitter, among others, to keep the public handicapped — the current strategy is to “farm” data from the ignorant disempowered masses so the data can be sold to be a few major corporations that will then use that data to combine fake news and advertising to “guide” the masses into continuing being stupid compulsive consumers. Those days are over.
