Trump vs. the Press/Media

Kushner: We struck deal with Sinclair for straighter coverage -

 

.....Kushner said the agreement with Sinclair, which owns television stations across the country in many swing states and often packages news for their affiliates to run, gave them more access to Trump and the campaign, according to six people who heard his remarks.

 

In exchange, Sinclair would broadcast their Trump interviews across the country without commentary, Kushner said. Kushner highlighted that Sinclair, in states like Ohio, reaches a much wider audience — around 250,000 listeners — than networks like CNN, which reach somewhere around 30,000.

“It’s math,” Kushner said according to multiple attendees......

News anchors looking into camera and reading a script handed down by a corporate overlord, words meant to obscure the truth not elucidate it, isn't journalism. It's propaganda. It's Orwellian. A slippery slope to how despots wrest power, silence dissent, and oppress the masses.

Department Of Homeland Security Compiling Database Of Journalists And 'Media Influencers'

".... Bloomberg Law reports on a FedBizOpps.gov posting by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with the relatively benign-sounding subject “Media Monitoring Services.”

The details of the attached Request for Information, however, outline a plan to gather and monitor the public activities of media professionals and influencers and are enough to cause nightmares of constitutional proportions, particularly as the freedom of the press is under attack worldwide.

And "attack" is not hyperbolic....

we are entering potentially dangerous territory with the government keeping track of the "sentiment" of citizens and foreign nationals. If not legal challenges from organizations that defend press freedom and freedom of speech interests, the government should expect, at the very least, backlash from the public. ....

Rachel not only " killed " Bill O'Reilly, but it looks like she killed Hannity too.

Never underestimate the power of an intelligent and honest woman.

Interesting.    I wonder how many of these viewers are 'new' ones;  I.e. people that didn't watch any of these type of shows but thanks to Trump,   are now much more interested in politics and decided to watch.    Many of these 'types' likely didn't vote in previous Mid-term elections which is what the Dems really need in 2018. 

I assume many if not most of them because I can't see someone that was watching Hannity now deciding they will watch Rachel.   (but I can see former CNN viewers getting tired of CNN's over the top crap and deciding to tune into Rachel).

Investigators Focus on Another Trump Ally: The National Enquirer

Image12AMIcombo-articleLarge.jpg?quality=75&a

"..... Now the tabloid company has been drawn into a sweeping federal investigation of Mr. Cohen’s activities, including efforts to head off potentially damaging stories about Mr. Trump during his run for the White House. In one instance, The Enquirer bought but did not publish a story about an alleged extramarital relationship years earlier with the presidential candidate, an unusual decision for a scandal sheet. ....

NYT Page One captures the day's tension: Trumpworld's legal problems on the left, air strikes in Syria on the right

This is a journalism textbook example of juxtaposition.

Excellent and objective New York Times reporting on both sides with one salient photo between the contrasting events to describe both stories.

Sean Hannity’s Ethical Mess

The revelation that the Fox News host sought legal advice from the embattled Trump attorney raised questions about the network’s journalism—and about the president’s tangled relationships.

"....... Fox News has always been a de facto ally of the Republican Party, but Hannity’s closeness with Trump is a symptom of an even closer relationship between this administration and the channel. Hannity and the president speak frequently, and Trump seems to take his advice seriously on a wide range of topics, even as he tends to disregard advice from specialist aides. That relationship is already far closer than most news organizations would find acceptable.

Trump, meanwhile, has treated Fox News as a farm team for his administration, hiring widely from the network’s ranks of hosts, journalists, and contributors, most recently new National-Security Adviser John Bolton. .......

Your idol, trump,  Faithfully  watches Hannity and watched O'Reilly on Fox. They're all joined at the hip, more ways than one.

I know you don't watch CNN,  but are you saying you watch Fox?
