The Boot-Licking Lackeys In The Media Are Finally Realizing That They Are Pawns!

Not really, because they are 100% behind the anti-freedom, economy-crushing policies of the Biden junta. They just want to be respected; they want the Kalorama Kidz to continue the charade that the media have autonomy and aren't simply lickspittle servants of the current progressive regime.

WH Press Corps Demands Biden Admin Change Unprecedented Rules That Are 'Restrictive and Antithetical to the Concept of a Free Press'

President Joe Biden is trying to manipulate the news media through the administration’s selective access rules for White House events, according to a protest letter made public.

The letter to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was signed by 68 journalists — many of whom are at odds with each other on a daily basis — including Kaitlan Collins of CNN, Ed O’Keefe of CBS and Jacqui Heinrich of Fox News, according to the New York Post.

During his time in the White House, Biden has often left news conferences while reporters were trying to ask questions, and he has indicated from his comments that he is given a list of people to call on to ask questions, as noted by Fox News.

These sub-literate, childish-thinking drones are too stupid to see that they are being manipulated? Wow. Most of us have the appropriate amount of contempt for our Fourth Estate, but maybe we are giving them too much credit! Their protestations that the drooling fool masquerading as the legitimate president has avoided them are simply ridiculous. They opened the door to this sort of behavior by accepting 99% of the leftist narrative, certainly beginning with the Obama administration. Before Barack's reign of terror they were much more evenhanded...accepting only 95% of the progressive cant.

So forgive me if I have no sympathy for a bunch of overpaid, under-worked J-School graduates without an iota of experience in the real world, or any sense of what a truly free press should do. In fact, I will be making popcorn so I can sit back with a good snack and observe the impotent flailing of these running-dog lackeys. They play the tired game of pretending that they are independent, and only when the scum in the West Wing stop giving lip service to the nonsensical idea that they are anything other than whores being paid with the occasional privilege of asking a pre-planned question of a talking turnip, and running victory laps because they were called upon, do they stand up in unison, strutting around as if they matter.

Here's the truth: they don't matter. Those press conferences could just as easily be a single page hand-out to the junior interns from the major news outlets. It's regurgitated propaganda, and more and more Americans are (belatedly) realizing it! "Putin's Gas Tax?" "The border is closed?" "9mm will blow your lungs out?" The stupidity is out of control, and all these hacks can see is some imagined disrespect to their vaunted positions as the protectors of our republic.

Maybe if more than a few of them would actually do their jobs their complaints would be taken more seriously, but that will never happen, so sit back and enjoy the temper tantrums!

20 What I take from the article is that this is nothing more than specific journalists being upset they are not part of the in-crowd. None of them intend to actually hold the Administration and Democrat Party accountable in press briefings. Their gripe is that they are being left out of the clique and not considered part of the clique. Thus not getting to go to all the parties and such that come with being part of the clique.

I have never heard of this guy, Brian Karem. But I do see he has a book he wants to sell. Sounds like he's just an asshole who is not liked. Afterall, they don't restrict people like Fox News' Peter Doocy.

In a letter to Psaki in April, left-wing reporter Brian Karem, the author of "Free the Press: The Death of American Journalism and How to Revive It," said he had no doubt he was targeted for exclusion.

"I've been told point-blank that part of the reason for [the] restriction - at least in my case - is because I'm not liked and that I give you all grief," he said, according to the Post.

24 About a mile from my house is a little ranch home that is mostly hidden behind a long, grass covered hill. In '16 he had several 'Hillary' signs posted in front of the hill, along the road. There they remained until about year 2 of Bad Orange Man. Biden signs were posted for the '20 election. They didn't remain up long. Yesterday morning I was driving past his place and 'FJB' is mowed down to the dirt along the face of the hill.

55 "The problem is equally shared by conniving journalists and their credulous readers/audiences."

And there it is. Impossible, of course, to say what the same public - in an environment of actual news reporting, with a serious, inquisitive, skeptical, and intelligent press - would be like.

But even in recent history, with a press not nearly as bas as this but pretty bad, the public has shown it knows better. Elections of 1980 and especially 1984, possibly 1972, though that's a bit different.

Those electorates would never have lapped up the absurd distortion that is 93% of the "coverage" of, say, Trump, the way this one did.

69 Occasionally the narrative pops up, that it is the propaganda media that is really running the show.

MSM and coordinated talking points is certainly vital to the machine, but I think it is oligarchs meeting privately that really leads the assault on USA and liberty in general.

And imo it is not really Bezos or even Gates, who seem maniacal enough but not the deep thinkers needed for the coordinated assault. Soros seems capable of deeper plotting, but there are no doubt many names we never hear.

The talking heads are ego driven and perhaps down with the struggle, but they don't lead the war. Leaders are probably at the Atlantic Council, the IMF, the 20 global banks and the whole cartel ... Foundations act as graft/outreach programs? idk ... BigMoney is buying all influence.

Via Pierre Cory: https://bit.ly/3ycPVWK
CBS News Article (2009): https://cbsn.ws/3ArQTB1

Merck made a "hit list" of doctors who criticized Vioxx, according to testimony in a Vioxx class action case in Australia. The list, emailed between Merck employees, contained doctors' names with the labels "neutralise," "neutralised" or "discredit" next to them.

According to The Australian, Merck emails from 1999 showed company execs complaining about doctors who disliked using Vioxx. One email said: We may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live ...

The plaintiffs' lawyer gave this assessment:

It gives you the dark side of the use of key opinion leaders and thought leaders ... if (they) say things you don't like to hear, you have to neutralise them ... It does suggest a certain culture within the organisation about how to deal with your opponents and those who disagree with you.

That is only part of it. Americans need to understand what and who causes the pain. If Americans get hard long-lasting pain and the criminals who inflict the pain convince the suffering Americans that someone (conservatives) or something (capitalism) else is the reason for the pain, then the pain is not enough.

Look back throughout history and there are plenty of evil leaders who took advantage of people's suffering and used it to come to power and make things worse. Don't even have to go back that far in this country to see an example of it. 2008 economic crash was caused by the Left, but they blamed conservatives and capitalism. Ushered in 8 years of Obama and radical leftists in government who still remain in power.

The early Communists found that they could sometimes get support among the landed aristocracy, but that the shopkeepers were their staunchest opponents. That's because having risen from the worker class made the shopkeepers the most defensive of their higher class status. Today our society is divided by education. Media and teachers are the biggest commies today for the same reason. They know they are the dumbest members of the educated class.

I think Bill Clinton got the ball rolling l, with CNN and the attacking of conservatives after Monica gate and the press just following along.
Bush Jr. did not push back after many slights and slanders on him and his family, so the press got comfortable doing just that.
Obama made it a cornerstone to call out and targeted his political opponents, and to call on the press to harass who ever he needed them to (Joe the Plummer)
Trump was really the first to call the press out on bad reporting for 20 years, he was brash and abrasive because he had to be. He had to make things an issue to be able to put his message out

The Left knows the Left is winning. But they know the way to keep winning is to keep moving the goalposts and keep claiming the right is winning so the Left's foot soldiers keep fighting. It's an extremely smart strategy. Especially with the youth who are too ignorant to know of history to see through the lies.

The Left can claim ridiculous things like misogyny and racism and "homophobia" are at crisis levels in the country by simply redefining all of them and lying about what they need to.

i.e. with misogyny, they lie about the "gender pay gap". With racism, they just redefine racism and claim that if you're not in favor of anti-white racism, you're racist. With "homophobia", it started out as just wanting to be treated normal and not made fun of, now if you don't agree with grooming and gender dysphoria, you're a bigot.

258 "These sub-literate, childish-thinking drones are too stupid to see that they are being manipulated? Wow."


They do not care if they are manipulated as long as it gives them a decent chance at being one of the favored few on the questioner list or cards Karine Jean-Pierre gives to Slow Joe for every formal Q and A session. I am continually amazed that Joe does not try to hide that he has a list, given to him, every time. It's an arrogant slap at the drones, showin how much he and his staff despise them. Nave the drones complained? Not that I know of.

The White House media members would have a better than zero chance of pinning-down Joe on an issue if they agreed to ask follow-up questions for each other. That's as likely as two boa constrictors agreeing to share a young pig. So Joe gets away with the same old set of lies and arrogant talking points every time.

Factor in 12 hour work days intermittently unless he was "mile highing" nonstop and it turns out the guy never slept.
