Hillary Clinton and MSM Just Like Two Peas In A Pod

If anyone is even remotely paying attention to the media be it on Network TV, On Line Media, Newspapers, or NPR it is obvious that Madison Avenue is hard at work "pumping" Hillary with an occasional "jab" for just good measure to trash Bernie...

After all, Hillary IS THE Presumptive Nominee... "Don't Ask Me No Questions, Just Shut Up And Get On Board!"

Nothing about policy comparisons with her Democratic Party rival, just the juvenile back and forth predominantly with the Donald... AND puff pieces to get US to find Hillary... More "Likable"

ANY mention of Bernie is most often something of a derogatory nature....

The Endless domination of ISIS/ISIL/Terrorism in the "News!"

Somehow Hillary is supposed to keep US "safer" than anybody else? Who is being played for the "sucker(s)" here? ________?

When people are afraid, they tend to make less than optimal decisions. Thus the quote most appropo from Hermann Goebbels, "Once you have them in fear, the rest is easy..."

The more WE play into the Fear Mongering on ALL sides, WE make it all the "easier" for THOSE whom WE detest e.g., "The Powers That Be" ...that control policy through their Establishment Candidates/Electeds to whom all of the HUGE $$$$'s are given...

In return for those eventual paybacks that such contributions engender.

Known nostalgically as
"Ye Ole Quid Pro Quo!."

"Ever wonder why every network is covering exactly the same stories every day? This is why.

Here are some "mentions" of Hillary on Yahoo just today: Funny, no mention of Bernie...

31. Today's Yahoo Media "Pumps" For Hillary

ANYONE who denies that "The Establishment" has pulled out all of the stops in their propaganda thrust to put Hillary in the WH is either unconscious or in full on denial.

Cognitive Dissonance is often the root cause in "HillBillies" who refuse to acknowledge her past failed judgements, wrong decisions, prevarications and lapses in character.

Beyond all of her history, even her strongest supporters cannot deny the unprecedented collective falling in line of MSM advocacy and the complete dissolution of professional journalism mores in the unbridled push to ensure her stroll into the Oval Office 1/20/17.

TRUTH and DEMOCRACY in America... BE DAMNED!

A Couple of today's Hillary "Pumps" on Yahoo... PLUS NPR!!!!!

The NPR "Leave It To Beaver" "pump" piece on Hillary had to be at least 10 minutes long this morning... Noth'in but Vanilla and Spice and Everything Nice...


Here it is... http://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpolitics/2015/06/16/413927185/growing-up-in-protected-americana-hillary-clinton-looked-outside-the-cocoon

2. Hillary has all the clout and has earned her current standing.

Hillary is going to be the Democratic Nominee and next President of the United States. Yea...she gets media attention and she has earned every thing by herself.

9. and Sanders has been getting tremendous attention also, on all the networks. It is just convenient

Last edited Tue Dec 29, 2015, 09:59 AM - Edit history (1)

filtering to make it appear that Bernie is being ignored, which he isn't. Martin O'Malley on the other hand has a case for not being covered, but not the Sanders' campaign

Here are programs that Bernie regularly appears on:

Meet the Press, CNN state of the union, Chris Hayes MSNBC, rachel maddow MSNBC, and a host of others, and that does not include radio, such as his regular coverage by Thom Hartman

17. He's appeared on those shows....

because he's made himself available. If Hillary would step around the rope I doubt she would be on less then that. She seems to think it unnecessary. As for Bernie getting less airtime, there are plenty of sources, here's just one.

23. Wrongo -- All the networks behave as if Clinton were already the nominee

 

For example, they present polls that show how GOP candidates would fare against Clinton in the GWE. ...but NEVER how Sanders would fare.

They give token coverage to Sanders -- usually with the caveat that he is a "fringe socialist" but they always treat the horse race as if he and O'Malley don't exist as serious contenders.

22. Sanders has more contributors in the history of the U.S. He hasn't earned it either?

 

He's been in office and has a longer history and record than her. Gee, why aren't they covering it?

BECAUSE THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM.

Hard to believe these supporters are democrats...or just don't want to deal with the truth between these two candidates.

3. No one had received bad press like Hillary Clinton! Someone polling 30 points behind the front

runner is not going to get much notice. That's just the way it is and always will be. There are "journalists" out there who hate the Clinton's and continue to bash them for decades.

Sanders lost his daily mouth piece when Ed Schultz lost his show.

Meet the Press, CNN state of the union, Chris Hayes MSNBC, rachel maddow MSNBC, and a host of others, and they have NOT been negative toward Bernie, in fact the majority of them have been positive.

The only one who is not getting a fair shake among the Democratic candidates is Martin O'Malley

8. This may all work in Bernie's favor.

America loves the underdog, especially the one fighting the Oligarchy.

The more the mainstream media support Hillary, the more she seems like a corporate tool.

I see a groundswell of support every where I go. People mention they will vote for Hillary but Bernie supporters show a passion that is unmatched. They are Ambassadors for Change in America.

The status quo has to go.

Bernie will make America about Americans.

Corporate media that supports democrats.

I have heard this before but only from one group.

Amazing the false premise of corporate media supporting the Democratic Party is being floated here. It's a new DU.

14. Interesting included in this OP is

"After all, Hillary IS THE Presumptive Nominee... "Don't Ask Me No Questions, Just Shut Up And Get On Board!"

And we see time after time when Sanders is on talk shows and debates he is ask a question he skims the question and spins off into his over and over statement on finances. His unwillingness to veer from his same old same old statements is preventing Sanders from revealing himself and become known. Getting to know Sanders is impossible.

18. We live in the most reality the owners of corporations (shareholders) will allow.

If it is bad for Wall St, it is bad for them. Sure, they vote but it matters little. The battle has already been decided by their wealth before it gets to something as quaint as an individual vote.

As long as Wall St wins, they are content to let democracy continue its slow burn into irrelevance.
