Creative and talented people can weave a story highlighting the benefits of a product or service (or person) in a way that is eloquent. Avoiding the pitfalls that you know exist, or handling them deftly to the point where they are diminished compared with the benefits of the offering is an art.
It used to be that actual journalists would hold feet to the fire if they smelled any excrement flowing out of the mouth of the speaker so that they had to somewhat come clean. When you preach to the sheep, you can say anything. They’ll eat shit as quickly as they eat the truth.
Then there is Lying.
Here is an example of outright lying over the truth that is self evident to any audience, the speaker, the journalists and the world, yet no one says what is true either spoken or written, other than a few outlets.
The current White House spokes puppet blamed a president who left a secured border and hasn’t been in power for 2 years for the current disaster at the border. Even she doesn’t believe what she is saying. She is blaming Trump for what Biden has actually done.
JEAN-PIERRE: “ — especially because of what the last administration did, and they completely gutted the system. And we know that this has been a multidecade-long problem. We need to modernize the system, and this is something that the President has put forth and we are looking for Congress to act. We are asking Congress to act.”
It’s okay! Biden’s administration has a “six-point” plan to combat the border crisis.
But should support or have concerns with Title 42 ending?
Jean-Pierre said, “What Americans should know is that the President has done — has done the work to deal with what we’re seeing at the border since day one.”
Why? Because I worked with/for/against them and understand who they are.
We had an analogy to describe working with them. It went like this. If the media were covering Moses coming down from Mount Sinai with the tablets, it would read, “Moses gets 10 commandments from God. Here are the 2 that we think are the most important to you”.
Donny Deutsch tweeted this gem just yesterday:
MSNBC’s @DonnyDeutsch: “We don’t have the economy on our side as Democrats. So you have to scare the bejesus out of people — & a way to scare them, to say, You know this replacement theory, this is not just coming from some dark corner of the web, this is the Republican platform” pic.twitter.com/JWwfDYJrny
I was listening to a talk show on cable radio and the announcer said his advice to newbies was say it convincingly, and they will believe it five fold.
These people are just news readers, from a teleprompter. It doesn’t appear that anyone on the MSM or social media care to get the facts right, rather try to impose their biased view (both sides) on you by shouting from their bully pulpit.
My advice? Turn off the news, all of it. It is propaganda anyway.
They. Are. Lying. On Purpose. In coordination with a lot of players. It’s coming out about bots on Twitter, Hunter’s Laptop, email servers and it’s all not being reported by those who should be investigating. That is a reporter tool, that along with verifying sources died in journalism a long time ago.
The media are in the crowd that hates America. Look at their position (it’s surprisingly the same one across the board with the same talking points).
I could site any number of examples, but you can’t tell anyone anything. I have a meathead just like Archie Bunker and I don’t try anymore.
