When I see all of the news stories coming out quoting, they spoke on condition of anonymity, I can’t help but discount them as rhetorical propaganda. With the internet opening new channels of communication for smaller independents, the main stream news must now feel challenged on their biased inclinations.
After the president-elect’s first press conference since the election this week, it appears the mainstream media is in need of a ‘safe space’. As The Hill reports, so-called journalists from the Huffington Post, Slate, CNN, and Univision will gather days before Donald Trump’s inauguration to publicly discuss “how the news media can and should proceed to cover” the president-elect.
After this happened…
Slate will host the event next Wednesday, called “Not the New Normal.” CNN’s Brian Stelter will moderate the panel at New York University. As The Hill details,
The focus of the discussion will include “how journalists and media companies at large can play a bigger role in making sure that fact prevails over fiction in the coming months and years,” according to Slate.
Slate’s editor in chief Julia Turner and Slate Group chairman Jacob Weisberg — who hosts “Trumpcast,” a podcast dedicated to covering the president-elect — will participate in the panel.
Joining them will be Borja Echevarría, Univision Digital’s vice president and editor in chief; Huffington Post editor in chief Lydia Polgreen and New Yorker editor David Remnick.
Most of the panelists were staunchly critical of Trump during the campaign and since Election Day.
Tickets will cost $30, with proceeds benefiting the Committee to Protect Journalists.
This is the first time Slate has hosted a panel to discuss how to cover an incoming president.
Ok, there is a lot to go through with this story, which is going to end up being one of the biggest embarrassments for Buzzfeed, the CIA, and old man McCain ever.
First let’s go over what happened, in reference to the pesudo intelligence report aka ‘dossier’ published by the high level retards over at Buzzfeed.
I know this appears to be unbelievable, but it’s all verifiable. The neocon shill of a reporter from Buzzfeed, Rick Wilson, was catfished by some autist from the Hitler loving 4chan message boards and made to believe Trump enjoyed getting urinated on and all sorts of outlandish stuff. Truly, this is incredible. Let me post some screen shots.
That right there is the head of Buzzfeed explaining why he published a dodgy report of utter nonsense that was, apparently, fished around to other news agencies and summarily rejected — because it’s retard level was too high even for The NY Times.
Since the 4chan ruse was revealed, Rick Wilson has been made out to be a top moron with a propeller helmet, laughed at and derided as a person of very low standing. The heat is, apparently, getting to him.
Wikileaks calls bullshit on the report.
And now to the curious case of John McCain, war shill, neocon lover of death of agony.
Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself.
The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.
The Guardian has not been able to confirm the veracity of the documents’ contents, and the Trump team has consistently denied any hidden contacts with the Russian government.
The media ran with the ‘explosive news’ and will now get to enjoy its explosion — as they hold it near their tiny little hearts.
