The Taming of the Mainstream Media

December 8th, 2016

“My tongue will tell the anger of my heart, or else my heart concealing it will break.”

― William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew

 

Make no mistake; what we are witnessing at CNN and other mainstream media outlets following Election 2016 is historic.

CNN has lost the narrative and its power to Internet players Twitter, Facebook, Google and Wikileaks. Journalists are now twitter feed watchers. Tweets are the new 21st century press releases and “breaking news” alerts. Social media has replaced traditional media. All citizens are now journalists.

Why did this happen? CNN and the mainstream media forgot who they are.

There are four institutions of humankind: Government, Religion, Business and Non-Profits.

Governments are law-based, Religions belief-based, Businesses profit-based and Non-Profits cause-based. For instance, political parties are Non-Profits.

At some point in time, CNN began acting as a Non-Profit, not as a Business. They introduced bias into their product to the point that they became cause-based, not profit-based. It’s really just that simple.

That simple mistake has liberated the American people. We now enjoy “Freedom FROM the Press”.

 

 

White House Press Pool

November 30th, 2016

This is why its SO IMPORTANT to have the White House Press Pool:

 

“During the dinner, Trump’s transition team allowed a pooler in for a glimpse — Trump flashed a thumb’s up when asked how things were going — and CNN correspondent Jim Acosta happened to be eating a few tables away. And then duly live-tweeted what he saw, including some notes on body language. (“Trump crossing his arms for a good while now as Romney smiles and speaks.”)

Per the pool report, Trump and Priebus had sirloin steaks for entrees. Romney chose lamb chops. The appetizer, per the pool, was young garlic soup with thyme and sautéed frog legs as well as “diver scallops with caramelized cauliflower and a caper raisin emulsion.”

Whatever was discussed, there was agreement on dessert: Everyone had chocolate cake.”Twitter_bird

White House Correspondents’ Association

November 16th, 2016

The White House Correspondents’ Association is deeply concerned by President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to reject the practice of traveling with a “protective pool” of reporters for his first visit to Washington since the election. In addition to breaking with decades of historical precedent and First Amendment principles, this decision could leave Americans blind about his whereabouts and well-being in the event of a national crisis. A pool of reporters is in place and ready to cover President-elect Trump. The WHCA urges President-elect Trump to allow it to do its job, including being present for motorcade movements, meetings, and other interactions. Not allowing a pool of journalists to travel with and cover the next president of the United States is unacceptable.

-Jeff Mason, WHCA president

 

Note to Jeff:  Not reporting the truth, the whole truth, and noting but the truth is unacceptable.  Social Media is replacing Traditional Media because We The People are truth seekers.
