NY Times reporter: “disdain for and distrust of the media right now is worse than I’ve seen at any point throughout this presidency”

NY Times reporter: “disdain for and distrust of the media right now is worse than I’ve seen at any point throughout this presidency”

What did you expect from exploiting a public health crisis to help Democrats, and using false accusations of racism as a cudgel?

https://twitter.com/mrctv/status/1238186498433966081

Can you feel it? I certainly do.

There is a rising fury at the blatant media exploitation and weaponization of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.

There is no better example of the shamelessness of the media than how “Wuhan coronavirus” or “Wuhan virus” or “Chinese coronavirus” have all been declared to be racist because used by Trump or Trump supporters.

Yet the same media-types themselves used the terms.

There also is a media push to weaponize the crisis to defeat Trump. The same people who screamed that the restrictions on travel from China imposed over a month ago were racist and xenophobic all but ignore that the restriction is credited with substantially slowing down the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus to the United States, buying important time.

New York Times reporter and CNN analyst Elaina Plott tweeted:

https://twitter.com/elainaplott/status/1238176110917058560

The thousands of responses to her tweet are instructive.

Of course people are furious. I see it in the comments here, and on social media. People are sick of the media serving as the water boy/girl for Democrats, and of making false accusations of racism as the cudgel.

We remember how you threw the election to Obama, twice, and how you tried to throw the election for Hillary but barely failed. We remember Russia collusion, Kavanaugh, and so many other situations where the media feeding frenzy creates a permanent crisis news cycle designed to help Democrats.

You and your compatriots are part of the problem, and as inexcusable as it was on all those political topics, to do it again with a serious public health threat is so far beyond the pale that people are ready to burst with anger.

But you don’t see it most of the time. When you go on safari to observe the half the population that voted for Trump, you are shocked.

Bias is one thing.

Complete propaganda and corruption is another.

Sedition is still another.

We know the corruption is complete. We know the rats of the democrat media are beholden to America’s enemies.

The sedition started with bill clinton “giving” the Chi Comms missle technology, and Americans in government and the media selling themselves to the Chi Comms has gone wild.

https://capitalresearch.org/article/flashback-bill-clinton-gave-china-missile-technology/

We know hillary clinton is among the worst traitors in American history, alongside obama, kerry and biden. Then there is the likes of lois lerner.

The Chi Comms effectively own hollywood – and those narcissistic whores were happy to sell their souls and the soul of our country.

The “media” in America has become an enemy of our way of life – literally. They have prostituted themselves to fascists, and would see us destroyed so they can keep their ridiculous overpaid salaries. No better examples than brian williams and that ny times idiot Mara Gay, stephanopolis, krystol and the like.

The American ‘mainstream’ media needs to be exposed, boycotted until it is destroyed and replaced, no less than the GOPe.

Right now, we have obama on the board of netflix, along with susan rice. Do you subscribe to netflix? if you do, you have NOTHING to complain about.

          Ace of Spades

          They’re saying things like “Italy’s health care system is much more robust than America’s”. * snort * Italy had 150 cases that needed ICU treatment and the entire system collapsed. Tell me another one.
          *
          *

          One of the problems is the word: pandemic. I think a lot of people see that and think “OMG! That means it’s going to kill me!” Nope. According to the World Health organization, a pandemic is “A pandemic is the worldwide spread of a new disease.” It does not specify that it be a disease that is deadly to a huge swath of the population (BTW, the WHO has determined that COVID-19 is not transmittable through canine/human contact, and that any canines currently being held for observation should be released. In layman’s terms, that means that WHO let the dogs out).

          This is occurring around Purim when G-d’s hand is hidden but will be revealed for good in the end. Keep the faith.

          With the rising costs of colleges and universities, and given how these institutions have become such news-makers regarding professorial indoctrination while pushing radical ideologies on their students, the current crop of American K-12 students may realize that online education is not only a successful environment, it may be a far healthier one. Suicide, is in fact, the number one cause of death among college and university students — but this isn’t the case when they attend online. Gee, I wonder why?

    Clintons were far more traitorous than the Rosenbergs ever thought of being and they were executed. There’d better be some justice for them on the other side.

Watching Acosta and his bizarre antics, and Lemon hysterically screaming at Kasich makes you wonder who hires these incompetents.

This is a perfect admission by CNN that they are all racists and xenophobes.

EMBRACE THE HORROR

Even true accusations of racism are harmless. There are lots of benign ways to be racist. Blacks have this or that property on the average, how to we arrange things so that they do okay regardless. That would be racist and good.

    “Even true accusations of racism are harmless….”

    So it’s okay to call you a racist?

      It’s not the name-calling that’s the most harmful, it’s what follows after.

      Calling someone a “racist” is a dehumanizing move that is meant to give moral justification to actions which are materially harmful.

    This question, about racism, is of extraordinary importance.

    The Civil Rights acts have removed our freedom of THOUGHT.

    Who is the federal government to tell us what we should think about race or if we should think about it at all? This constitutes such a fundamental tyranny, I have been puzzled for some time why Americans tolerate it.

    As Thom. Jefferson wrote, If it never picks my pocket nor breaks my leg, he’s unconcerned about it.

    If an American is “racist,” whatever that means, he has the right to that attitude. An inalienable right to whatever attitude he chooses. If he picks your pocket or breaks your leg, or initiates force against you (Ayn Rand) that’s a whole different ballgame.

    But if you don’t want to live next door to Asians, that’s your God-given right. The government went 1,000 steps too far with this anti-racist crap by diktat.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Close The Fed. | March 12, 2020 at 9:30 pm

      The CRAs removed freedom of thought, freedom of contract, freedom of assembly, and freedom of association.

        Close The Fed in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | March 12, 2020 at 9:36 pm

        Exactly. Our freedoms have been vanquished by the back door.

        And every time some new group crowbars their way into this category, I’m infuriated. Asians, latins, were not brought here unwillingly in the holds of ships 400 years ago. They came here under their own power WILLINGLY.

        They can kiss my derriere.

        Certainly, those freedoms were restricted by the Civil Rights Act but, they were not eliminated. Every law restricts freedom. Laws should restrict freedoms that deny or infringe on the valid, Constitutionally recognized freedoms of fellow citizens. That, in fact, is the only justifiable use of laws. Our problem lies in the ever expanding definition of “rights” which allows for an ever expanding volume of laws restricting an infringement where no restriction was previously needed.

          We have a shortage of manliness here. Bow your head low. You seem comfortable there.

        Government has slightly restricted the freedom of association. It hasn’t really touched the freedom of contract; you’re free to make any contract you like, but it has never had a duty to enforce them if it doesn’t like them. For instance gambling debts were long unenforceable in court, because the contract was against public policy. And it hasn’t touched the freedoms of thought and assembly at all.

          In the meantime, the tyranny of incessant caturwauling over “racism” has meant we can have no intelligent discussion of anything. That word overshadows any and all rational thought and discussion.

But still far less than it should be.

I watch no mainstream media, Fox News included, and I’m still getting a huge dose of hysteria from people I talk to. They aren’t hysterical, but they have to navigate and react to the hysteria because their lives are being disrupted.

Media trust is as low as it’s ever been? That has to be the most self evident statement ever. You would need an IQ of 25 or less not to realize it.

Well, at least Brian Williams will find a cure for us once he’s accepted his Medal of Honor for jumping on a grenade and then receiving his Ph.D in math.

They have only just begun… to comprehend just how much they are despised, how much they are NOT representative of America or even the constituencies they purport to be their “market”.

The whole problem with this is that Plott interviewed Trump supporters. The other half of the population actually believes the MSM, because it feeds heir own points of view and delusions. The media does not care about this country or the people in it, as they now exist. What they care about is some pie-in-the-sky future utopia. If every man, woman and child dies tomorrow, they would not care. They would view it as a good thing as they believe that it would allow THEIR world of the future to come into existence. Most of the modern media is mentally ill. They are delusional. But, but, but, but; a significant portion of the populous actually believes their lies and BS. And, THAT is going to destroy this nation. And there will be NO utopia to replace it. There will only be destruction.

Try reporting and stop editorializing.

One question I haven’t heard an answer to, how many corona virus tests can a lab tech process per day? Why flood the system withe tests that can’t be processed in a timely manner?
How long does it train someone to process the tests?

I just finished watching a live stream with Robert Barnes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijIRmjKjrsY
Most of it was about big tech lawsuits. PragerU vs Google, Tulsi Gabbard vs Google.
Some of it is about Trump vs Times etc.
In the second half though there is a lot of talk about the collusion between the media and Big Tech which I found very disturbing. It does speak to the issues of this article but for me it’s hard to pick out the pits and pieces and frame a whole from it. Sorry.

It all starts with the reporting trade starting to fancy itself a profession, and then proceeded with it fancying that the constitution’s reference to the freedom of the press refers to them. From there it was a short jump to the fantasy that it has a role to play in the constitution, that it’s part of our system of government, and culminates in it arrogating to itself the ridiculous title “Fourth Estate”. Everything else follows from that arrogance.

I bet if you were to ask twenty reporters to name the first three estates, about half would not even understand the question and almost all the rest would incorrectly answer “the executive, the legislature, and the judiciary”.

    McGehee in reply to Milhouse. | March 13, 2020 at 1:17 am

    While I’m sure it actually originates from pre-Revolutionary France, I recently read historical references to “the Scottish Estates,” as components of the Parliament of pre-Union Scotland.

      Milhouse in reply to McGehee. | March 13, 2020 at 5:35 pm

      The Scottish parliament was known as the Three Estates, because that’s who it was made up of. The same estates as in France, all sitting together in the same chamber. There was also a Convention of Estates, which was a sort of mini-parliament that could be convened more easily than the full parliament, and originally only included members from the first two estates (the church and the nobility), but eventually members of the third estate (burgh commissioners) were added to it too. The USA has only one estate, and the founders would be shocked to hear people thinking we had four.

When you resent people for noticing your bad behavior and reacting accordingly, I’m trying to re,ember the psychological term for that personality disorder. Anyone?

The Wu Flu

Wow! A New York Times headline gets it right though, the writer may have no idea how complete and deep the mistrust and disdain may be. Nor, it seems, have they figured out that facts and information are available mote and more, regularly, from sources other than them and that they have become laughing stocks, an army of emperors wearing no clothes.

I lost 25% of my net worth (so far) because of the media-induced market crash. What I don’t understand is why the Democrats thinks disaster helps them politically. Why would I vote for the people impoverishing me?

I have noticed a sharp change in my little corner of CA. For most of the last three years, speaking with clients has been like walking through a mine field never knowing what will trigger a “Trump rage” event. Not anymore. It’s been reported that more than half of those attending Trump’s rallies during his recent CA visit were Democrats. They have accounted for maybe a third since the beginning but it is growing.

It used to be that Republicans would be blamed for everything wrong in CA. Not anymore. Today, it’s “those crooks in government” since there are no longer any Republicans to blame in our one party state.

I still avoid political conversations but it is much easier to speak intelligently about the things I advise about without triggering a rant. So long as I refrain from engaging in political discussions, I find myself easing right back in to where we started as friends since they have come around to seeing things the way they truly are. No need to rub anyone’s noses in it. Just let it slide.

Most Americans are now arriving at the same place. America is NOT a communist country. The commies are becoming increasingly isolated and reviled. November can’t come soon enough.

The dinosaur media, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat party, has been cultivating and earning the distrust of any thinking citizen. If there was a plot to foster mistrust, the media’s actions would match the script perfectly. I feel zero sympathy for them.

    Plus it doesn’t help that the Communists have taken over the Democrat Party.

    I disagree that the media run the Democrat party. I believe that the Bloombergs, Steyers, Soroses, etc run both. The big money has been clamoring for “more bennies” for years to get people to vote for them. Now it is becoming evident that socialist paradises like CA are running out of other people’s money and that the “other people” are tired of paying for the state’s vision.

The media actually run the democrat party. The media have the pressing business need. Their product isn’t news, it’s you. They sell your eyeballs to advertisers.

It takes soap opera to get a regular bill-paying audience, so soap opera is what you get.

The dems are free-riding on that business necessity, as suppliers of soap opera narratives. If they stop that, the media wouldn’t help them at all. It’s a business arrangement, is all.

Personally, I don’t distrust the media any more now than when Obama was president.

you’ve got to believe in something–i believe trump genuinely loves our country and that he will do what’s needed to get all of us through this stretch and on to whatever’s next with the least amount of drama/damage possible–can’t speak for you but we’ve signed-on for the whole tour–we’re going to go on living our lives, doing what we need to do, focused on the here and now but looking to the future also–we are fortunate to have him as president and we will support him and his efforts as we’re certain that, though he is human, he has all of our best interests at heart–calm down and keep moving forward

Hey you media dudes and dudettes (or more accurately “duds’) you earned the public’s contempt. Having earned it, own it.

Meanwhile as you absorb that lesson, I’ll continue to ignore you. Despising you and your lying eyes and mouths is just not worth the expenditure of energy on my part.

    Have you realized that your
    barber, hair stylist, and even manicurists
    have to have more “certification” and state licensing than “journalists” and “reporters”……

And it’s not just the usual suspects, for example, Tucker Carlson is one of the biggest screamers

Don’t start witch hunts that you can’t finish. The warlock judges are now under judgment.

Public radio here in Detroit reported that known cases in Michigan SOARED! to a whopping TWELVE! Now they could have said that known cases are still ONLY twelve. But no. The number is soaring. This is a perfect example of exactly what you are saying.

Wuhan, Wuhan, Wuhan!

Dear American socialists, Chinese communists, and other enemies foreign and domestic:

I no longer really give a damn when you call me a racist… or a homophobe, nazi, nationalist, deplorable, patriarch, unwoke, gun nut, ad nauseam. I’m going to keep on being what I am, and doing what I’m best at, which is exercising my human rights and winning. You folks keep doing what you are best at, which is calling people names and whining.

“What did you expect from exploiting a public health crisis to help Democrats, and using false accusations of racism as a cudgel?”

Same tactics, different crisis. Media must have thought WuFlu viri could vote Democrat.

Your subtitle explains it all. The media has made themselves a purveyor of “fake news”. Now they get the harvest of their planting, and it is like “we don’t know how these weeds came up just where we planted seeds”.

If you follow the polls on the media truthfulness, you will note that it has fallen steadily since people started to get alternate news on the internet. Not because they are lying more now, just because they are caught more and more in their lies.
