Thread: This is "journalism" in 2020 ...

    This is "journalism" in 2020 ...

    WaPo offers the following "perspective" on "potential disinformation" (not that this is going to surprise anyone).

    Underline/bold emphasis added:

    Insisting that the Hunter Biden laptop is fake is a trap. So is insisting that it’s real.

    [...]

    A close look at the evidence shows that neither Biden nor Trump have the facts on their side for now. Take a step back, and the Russian interference of 2016 holds valuable lessons on what to do and what not to do in 2020: We must treat the Hunter Biden leaks as if they were a foreign intelligence operation - even if they probably aren’t.

    When anyone but corporate MSM hacks say such things, those same hacks will sneer at them and call them "conspiracy theorists."

    But not even the kookiest "conspiracy theorist" tells you to take his theories seriously "even if they probably aren't" true ..

    "Journalism" has really never been anything more than a cover story for the propaganda arm of the state. It's just more obvious now than at some times in the past.

    PBS censored McLaughlin Group because they discussed Hunter Biden

    On this weekend’s The McLaughlin Group they spoke about Hunter Biden quite a lot. I DVR this show off of a PBS TV station (NYC) every Friday. Well, this week they refused to air the episode. Instead, they show’d a rerun of the 2019 end-of-the-year awards show. I guessed that they must be censoring talk about Biden - had to find it on youtube - and yes, Pat Buchanan and Ryan Girdusky are very straight-forward about whats happening and that Biden will have to address it. Of course, Elinor Cliff and Clarence Page try to laugh it off as another conspiracy theory. Page Compares it to “Qanon”.

    They have all flavors of media propaganda now, so the gullible can be certain that they are in the know. That’s why it usually pays to believe nothing from people that make their livings from living off of others!

    Far, FAR more obvious.
