Nothing Mainstream About the Media

Chiquita is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, October 17, 2016. Our noisy and delightful friend, Chiquita, is at the breakfast table this morning. She has prepared a batch of sweet apple pancakes for our enjoyment. I will be serving Irish coffees to add to the pleasure of a good meal. Chiquita has had it with the MSM. She believes a name change is long overdue, because there is nothing at all mainstream about the media. Please join us for breakfast this morning. Chiquita is anxious to talk with all of you. We hope to see you soon.

Psst....

Thanks so much for coming over this morning. The secret is out of the bag. The myth of the mainstream media was fabricated by the mainstream media. To be mainstream is to be in agreement with the prevailing attitudes and values of society. There is nothing mainstream about ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The New York Times or The Washington Post . They represent the extreme left-wing segment of our nation. They mold the news to spread their propaganda. They omit the news to keep their readers and audiences uninformed and manipulated. They never give another point of view other than their own skewed and biased view, and when it happens that a member of their cult dares to tell a story in a way that is not approved of, trouble hits the fan. They have consistently and relentlessly misrepresented events to bolster their left-wing agenda. The days of Walter Cronkite are long gone. These people masquerading as journalists have betrayed their profession, and in doing so, they have betrayed all of us.

Laughable Coverage

ABC, CBS and NBC spent 4hours and 13 minutes dissecting the recent sexual allegations of misconduct concerning Donald Trump. The bombshell WikiLeaks emails from Hillary's top staff garnered the attention of these networks for 36 minutes in totaL. Their coverage was spotty and light handed, because their goal is to achieve a Clinton presidency. I don't recall them discussing their colleagues who collaborated with the Clinton campaign. CBS invited a New York Times journalist to discuss the emails. The reporter, Mark Leibovich, was, himself, discussed in the leaked emails. Apparently, he asked for Clinton's approval of one of the stories he was writing about her. The silence about all of this was deafening. Regular viewers of this network wouldn't have a clue that anything improper was going on. The behavior of the so-called mainstream media is deplorable. Hillary should have her collaborators in her deplorable basket instead of voters who don't support her. That will never happen, of course. Hillary needs her pals like George Stephanopoulos to do her dirty work and discredit anyone who dares to question her honesty. He did just that when he colluded with the Clinton campaign to discredit Peter Schweizer, the author of "Clinton Cash." The campaign was very pleased with George's work. It seems he followed the advice of Clinton staffers and diminished the importance of the book.

A Big Yawn

The polls are showing us that this is going to be a nail-biter of a race. If the MSM has its way, this will also be an election based upon lies, deliberate fabrications, hideous manipulations and defamation of character. Some voters will go to the polls and decide that Hillary's lies are a big yawn. This group will decide the fate of the rest of the nation who are disgusted with politics as usual. Mention politics and there are tons of people ready to say that everyone is a crook and "they" all lie. I am not naive, but the likes of Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton make Richard Nixon look like a boy scout. Donald Trump may be a flawed candidate, but he is really all we have. If we allow the Clintons to run things for the next 4 or 8 years, we are throwing our freedoms away once and for all. There are truths to be gotten from this insane mess, but it requires a willingness on the part of the electorate to dig a little deeper. It also requires a willingness to turn off the MSM and seek out alternatives like FOX News. The MSM and President Obama did a great job of maligning the network. I meet people all the time that tell me how biased FOX is. I always ask them if they ever watch it, and the answer is always the same. It is a resounding "NO." I try and tell them that the MSM has brainwashed them, and they should consider stepping outside the box a bit and tuning in. That will never happen, so I guess that's a win for the media and the White House.

Let There Be Light

The election is almost upon us. There is still time for the uninformed, the bored, and the biased to shed some light on some very important issues. No doubt, this is a lousy election. Our choices are terrible, but there is no use whining about it now. I hope that at least some of those I characterized above will venture out of their comfort zone and try to sort out the truth. If they should do so, I am certain they would be shocked to realize how often they have been lied to and used. If I could I would empty out the Halls of Congress. If I could I would ban the MSM from polluting the airwaves and the written word. We deserve better than what we have been given. I don't care what side of the aisle you are on. Who, in their right mind, enjoys being lied to and treated like a moron? There is nothing "mainstream" about most of the media. The MSM should stand for Manipulating Syndicate of Misinformation. If you have a better idea, let me know.

Chiquita's Song

Let's hope that Hillary

To me the media changed when Obama first ran for president. The media then settled into his pocket and those of the left. Obama wants Hillary to succeed him, and the media is doing all it can to make that happen. It is up to those who are not morons to make sure that does NOT happen. I'm coming to the inn.

Agreed Pop. The leftist slant is so blatant, so over the top, that to hear journalists describe themselves as objective reporters is just plain FUNNY! The MSM is a laughing stock, as laughable as Donnie Trump is to many; however, the damage being done by the Manipulating Syndicate of Misinformation is considerable.

Good Morning Hxprof,

Our nation has morphed into a socialist state where the media is controlled by the government. In the end, the electorate will become sufficiently dumbed down to make them completely irrelevant. Oh, wait... That may have already happened. See you at the Inn.

I find it very hard to sleep with the strings attached to my shoulders. I don't toss and turn; I get yanked around by the puppet master, the mainstream media. Just sayin'

Good Morning billy,

I can't see you being yanked around by anything, but there are loads of voters out there that are being manipulated. See you at the Inn.

Pop and Chiquita,

I agree the MSM needs a name change. Too bad Tass and Pravda have already been taken.

Pop & Chiquita....I nearly didn't stop by today. I no longer qualify as a proper guest at the Inn. I'm sad, miserable & mostly angry. I do not like being angry. It's very uncharacteristic for someone as positive & happy as I am. I try to avoid any discussion whatsoever on the current BS of the campaign. Hell, it's not even a campaign. It's mass hysteria & a shameful, destructive mess. The MSM is in no way "main stream" nor would I even call it "media" (more like "mafia.")

Not only do I feel this personally but more importantly on behalf of our fellow Americans who can SEE all of this & also accept how helpless & useless we are as the victims!....Insulted is the word I use when I realize what we have to choose from.....starting with 16 men & 1 woman, there still remains a feeling of shock with no "awe." H.C is a piece of human garbage (politically) and I'm unable to even look at an H.C. supporter, much less listen to them. Sadly, that's a whole lot of people around me.

3 weeks left. This is true torture. I'm going into an early hibernation this year. It may be the only thing that saves me temporarily. Then beginning in January, millions may be needing something to save us ALL.

I'm stretching a bit to find at least a positive note to end this post.......

The weather here is beautiful, autumn is performing it's colorful magic on Mother nature & the air is crisp & clear.

That's the best I can do right now. Hoping, praying, finger's crossed, Paula

Dear taxlarry,

The ironic part about this mess is that the Obamas and the Clintons can't stand each other. Most of us can't stand both families, and with good reason. I the Trump is right. This election is rigged, and when Hillary wins we will know that for sure. See you at the Inn. I'll save you a seat.

Dear Tom,

I am starting to think the Gestapo might apply. See you at the Inn.

Dear fp,

You are not alone. I feel the same way, but I take comfort in the fact that there others like us out there. I'll tell you how bad things are. Today I was reading about the real possibility about an attack on our power grid. It seemed like a huge threat that made this election pale by comparison. Now how sick is that? See you at the Inn.

Actually, knowing the MSM is controlled by the government makes it a little easier for us. Now we know that most everything they report is a lie we no longer have to guess if they are lying.

Dear Mike,

You make a good point! Let me think it over and see if it makes me relax! See you at the Inn. We need to catch up.

Pop.....Well now, THAT bit of news sure did cheer me ,.....down. I suppose if there's going to be a revolution or just mass revolt, we'd better hurry?

Over 90% of the so-called 'mainstream media' identify as progressive liberal Democrats, so of course they're biased. But they are supposed to put that bias aside and do their job of being our eyes and ears. They are supposed to be sounding alarms, not aiding and abetting.

For that, they should be ashamed.

Dear fp,

I do think it is time for another American Revolution to free ourselves from losers like Clinton.

Dear Will,

"For that," they should be thrown off the air. They are propaganda outlets masquerading as journalists. See you at the Inn. Do me a favor and lock the door behind you!

What media outlets do you think are fair and balanced?

Hello pop. When I see deliberate lies and unsavory tactics perpetrated by media sources, it makes me sick. It is alarming how much they control and shape our very moods and opinions. Thanks for the helpful info. whonu

Dear who,

I can't believe we have sunk this far. The media is nothing more than a propaganda outlet trying to mold all of us into compliant trolls. See you at the Inn. It may be the last sane place on earth.

No media outlets are fair and balanced; bias is an innately human characteristic. No media will ever be fair and balanced. My question stands: what is the source of the '90%' statement?
