Meet the Shills of Fake News

Donald Jeffries – American Free Press Nov 13, 2019

Considering how many Americans pay high tuition costs every year for college degrees in journalism, or go to expensive broadcasting schools, it is instructive to look at the backgrounds of those at the highest levels of the media.

On CNN alone, Anderson Cooper is the son of One Percenter Gloria Vanderbilt and was a CIA college recruit for good measure.

Chris Cuomo is the son of former politician Mario Cuomo and brother of current New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Among the network’s “senior advisors” are former Barack Obama aide David Axelrod and former White House Fellow under Hillary Clinton Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper started out as press secretary for Democratic congressional candidate Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, and worked for a public relations firm run by Jimmy Carter’s press secretary, Jody Powell, as well as Handgun Control Inc.

Several among CNN’s on-air “talent” sit on the boards of big corporations, an all-too-common practice this author exposed in the book Survival of the Richest. Not only do these positions provide lucrative “part-time” income, they represent a clear conflict of interest.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program is hosted by former Republican Rep. Joe Scarborough, in whose office a dead young female aide was found shortly before his political career ended, an incident which has never been investigated and rarely reported on. His co-host is Mika Brzezinski, daughter of globalist extraordinaire Zbigniew Brzezinski. Former Bill Clinton advisor George Stephanopoulos is a “reporter” for ABC News. Former Bush aide Karl Rove works for Fox News. Former Clinton aide James Carville has worked for both CNN and Fox News.

The pipeline goes both ways.

Donald Trump hired Fox News’s Larry Kudlow, and according to The Hill, during Obama’s first term alone, 25 former reporters joined his administration. The staffs of politicians like Sen. John Kerry have long been littered with ex-journalists.

Chris Matthews got his start working for former Democratic Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill.

Regardless of their backgrounds, most mainstream “journalists” have proven to be not only devoid of any true investigative zeal, but utterly capable of smearing and destroying innocent lives.

Richard Jewell was lambasted in the press as the Atlanta Olympics bomber, when in fact he was a genuine hero. His early death was undoubtedly at least partially triggered by the nonstop negative press coverage.

Recently, the Des Moines Register dredged up some texts from young cancer fundraiser Carson King, when he was just 16, and demonized him for “the public good.” Predictably, these texts were deemed “racist,” and Anheuser-Busch, which had been matching contributions to his cause, immediately severed ties with King. The paper initially stood behind their reprehensible actions, but then it came out that reporter Aaron Colvin, who penned the article, had written far worse things on his own social media accounts. Colvin was eventually fired, but he blamed “right-wing ideologues,” and claimed he was being oppressed like “women and journalists of color.”

Former ESPN reporter turned Fox Nation contributor Britt McHenry, who had an embarrassing video of her own go viral a few years back, in which she shamefully bullied a low-paid woman, expressed her outrage that a white male would dare to compare himself to officially designated “oppressed” groups, tweeting eloquently, “Wait, hold the [expletive deleted] up. He dares to compare himself to receiving the vitriol women or people of color get on here?”

During the first Gulf War, CNN was caught staging fake missile attacks. Nothing happened to any of those involved.

Katie Couric was shown to have creatively edited responses during a special on gun control, and again her reputation didn’t suffer in the least. MSNBC disgracefully edited a conversation between George Zimmerman and a police dispatcher, in an effort to portray Zimmerman as a racist.

Recently, ABC News was caught airing unrelated footage in an attempt to show that any proposed withdrawal of troops from Syria, as proposed by President Donald Trump, would be devastating. Few Americans remember Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Janet Cooke, who won the award for a Washington Post story that was subsequently discovered to have been entirely fabricated. Her academic credentials were later discovered to have been bogus. Jayson Blair made up stories for The New York Times.

Sabrina Erdely invented a nonexistent rape at the University of Virginia for Rolling Stone magazine. There are many other examples, including the case of NBC’s Brian Williams, who fabricated a bogus tale about his experiences in Iraq and got caught—after telling it to thousands of viewers.

The same “journalists,” who worked for the politicians they cover for, enjoy hefty salaries for attending a few board meetings for companies they cover, hold an antipathy for any questioning of our corrupt authorities, which they instantly brand “conspiracy theories.” But they will camp out on an average person’s doorstep and badger their families in an effort to “expose” the truth about some mundane matter. They are gutless, well-connected, and state-controlled.

  1. Anderson Cooper the homosexual Jewish liberal is particularly objectionable….he masquerades as a journalist doing his best to bring light to the unenlightened masses….he PLAYS at being the big shot journalist when in actual fact he is a POSEUR of the worst kind……The 60 minutes programme is actually laughable….it is the corruption of journalism….Barbara Walters must be the toast of the cocktail circuit in Washingstein…….when infact she should be consigned to oblivion…..and just plain told to fuck the hell off ASAP.

  2. I have no time for anyone who watches, listens to or reads anything within the msm. The minute someone starts spouting msm rhetoric, I change the subject or walk away. Absolutely no point, whatsoever, in having any conversation with people like that. You’re talking to a brick wall, to people whose minds are completely closed off from any critical thinking and severely lacking in common sense and intelligence. Sadly this is the overwhelming majority of people I and those like me will meet.
    They are propagandists. That’s their job, there to completely indoctrinate and brainwash you. If ever I catch a glimpse of what BS the msm is lecturing society on (most probably here or a likewise site) I just laugh, seeing through the lies instantly. It’s quite pathetic really. The depths they’re now going to, in order to deceive the public.
    The only problem is, of course, they’ve told so many lies, digging so many holes, on so many subjects that it’s only a matter before they fall head first into them, due to having nowhere else to step. And this is when, even the dumbest of their viewers notice something amiss and not quite right. Then the whole house of cards comes tumbling down.

  3. @ Vespasian + Harbinger:

    Right on brothers! Also lets not forget, Jon Stewart ( really Leibowitz), Wolf Blitzer and Rachel Maddow ( Mad cow) or writer/editorialist Charles Krauthammer; all Ziojews. Then also you have Charlie Rose, a CIA agent like Anderson Cooper. ZioBankster Jews and Intelligence Community (CIA / MI6 / Mossad ) assets the greatest propagandists of our time since Josef Goebbels.

  4. Parlor or bourgeois bolshies take your pick no matter how they dress, how shiny they look and sound they’ll never escape the trash bin they threw Oscar out of to climb into. And that’s all they are is kids in adults bodies trying to justify their own corruption and evil.
    As for the masses that tune into the rot religiously like a sect they may as well have come from planet stupida and its moon poofter I’ve witnessed them trying to talk like, sound like,dress like, look like and write like their only visual references the bourgeoisie transnational capitalist class in other words they act like actors with budgie bird brains from a dollar shop it is the world’s biggest joke. I enjoy f,en with their heads and delicate sensibilities they deserve it. I believe it is my obligation these days it is that simple. I take full responsibility.
    Tv is so shiny it can’t tolerate one smudge and they fall for it every time.

  5. Operation Mockingbird is a huge success. Mazel Tov!

    What do you expect from the CIA?

    Cocaine

    Importing

  6. You might look into the allegation that most talking heads in American local media hail from the families of area elites.
