A Cappella Agitpop

The MSM is just A Capella Agitpop
The Lamestream Enemedia’s Fake News Is Just A Capella Agitpop

No, the Lamestream Enemedia isn’t news, not even fake news. It’s nothing more or less than Leftist agitpop with no instrumental accompaniment. As such, it’s not something that should be taken seriously except in that it poses a certain level of threat to our nation.

OK, it does also serve the useful purpose of helping us identify our domestic enemies and their sympathizers in that anyone parroting the Lamestream Enemedia’s narratives is using shibboleths that easily identify them as members or fellow travelers of the Left.

Man Bites Dog

President Donald J. TrumpAs should be expected, the biggest news in America, possibly the Civilized World, is President Donald J. Trump. And one of the evolving stories center to this is the President’s refusal to bow to the Lamestream Enemedia. Given that these kingmakers – and failed, would-be queenmakers – aren’t used to being questioned by anyone, this is definitely a “Man Bites Dog” news moment and of paroxysmal bouts of outrage, fear, and denial.

Our President’s latest strike against the leftwing propaganda engines was fired off via Twitter on February 17th.

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”

— President Donald J. Trump

Yes! A man bit the dogs and the dogs are howling. That’s newsworthy indeed and gratifying to read about as the “press” and their liberal followers explode over it. Definitely a case of “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

Man Bites Dog
Man Bites Dog

Oh, and how they’re yipping, yapping and howling over this as they tear the clothes and beat their breasts over this “horrible slur” against them, as if they hadn’t already though their bias, hate, and mendacity already beggared their own reputations and betrayed and thus lost the trust of we, the People.

Oh yes! The media personalities and their always so useful and beholden shills have been quick to cry, “That’s how dictators get started,” and to claim to all and sundry who might listen and give credence to them that President Trump is shutting down the media.

No, while it’s true that that’s how dictators get started, it’s also how revolutionaries get started. They speak truth to power and they do so boldly, frankly, unapologetically, and with the candor that comes from the righteousness of their cause. And that is what President Trump is doing, speaking truth to power – speaking truth the undeserving holders and wielders of a vast, pervasive, and manipulative power that they have sorely misused, abused, and corrupted.

And that, my fellow Americans, is a Man Bites Dog moment in history.

Media Fact-Checking

Yes, it’s true; fact-checking the statements of politicians and political candidates is important. Yet, a horrid issue has arisen in that the organizations and people entrusted by the masses with such fact-checking, the MSM, is grossly lacking in the integrity to properly do so. Media fact-checking is generally considered to be so biased as to be worthless as a source of checking actual facts.

Media Fact-Checking
Media Fact-Checking Today

The only good thing is that the American people have, by and large, figured out the Lamestream Media is biased in all facets of their presentation of events, including fact-checking. Hellfire! They’re open and unapologetic about it these days.

It’s a proven fact that the majority voters know that the media plays favorites when it comes to fact-checking candidates’ statements. It’s also understood that the media today is little more than a propaganda service for the Democrat party. Indeed a recent polls shows that just 29% of all likely US voters have any trust the media’s fact-checking of candidates’ comments. 62% believe instead that media skew the facts to help candidates they support.

This well-thought distrust of the impartiality isn’t evenly distributed though. 88% of of voters who are likely to vote for Donald Trump in the presidential race believe news organizations skew the facts as do a majority of both Gary Johnson’s (Libertarian) and Jill Stein’s (Green) supporters, whereas fully 59% of Clinton’s followers trust the media fact-checking.

In actuality though, this intellectual or deontological “dimorphism” or disparity is expected and well-understood. Clinton’s followers are hearing being told what they want to hear and already believe. Hence, a variety of confirmation bias goes into effect, causing them to trust and believe what the Lamestream media tells them. At the same time, the media’s fact-checkers – the majority of whom are somewhere on the Liberal / Progressive arc – suffer from a form of observer bias which taints their findings in favor of the candidate(s) – normally Democrats – they support.

As evidence of this effect I refer you to the past, when those on the left very much did not trust much of what the media told them, fact-checking or otherwise, that was not against Operation Desert Shield and later Desert Storm. When the media wasn’t reinforcing the Liberals’ and Progressives’ beliefs they distrusted them and what they reported.

And, my Fellow Americans, I believe that this will just get worse, especially if Clinton is allowed to secure the Presidency. The news media is a for-profit operation. It’s beholden to its viewership to secure the ratings it needs to get the highest bids for its commercial spots. As more Americans tune out the Lamestream media the outlets will swing even further into the Left’s pockets in order to keep enough viewers to stay afloat.
