Elder Patriot – It’s really hard to fathom just how corrupt the legacy media and the social media giants have become. Then again, where absolute power is achieved nothing should surprise us.
The threat they pose to our freedoms through their manipulation over what we see and how we interpret what we see should scare every American. This is the subject of a new movie, The Creepy Line:
It’s fairly obvious that the legacy media and social media are coordinating to obscure evidence that can prove President Trump’s innocence and the Obama-Clinton-DNC criminal conspiracy.
Last night Tucker Carlson discussed the existential threat this coordinated disinformation campaign poses with perhaps the foremost expert outside of the social media empire, professor Robert Epstein.
We reported on Epstein’s findings in March of 2017. Epstein found that :
Google’s search algorithm can easily shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by 20 percent or more—up to 80 percent in some demographic groups—with virtually no one knowing they are being manipulated.”
Facebook’s censorship of news that defends Donald Trump, coupled with it’s promotion of news – even discredited news – that condemns Trump has been well-documented and likewise moves the needle of public perception far to the left.
This has not happened by accident. It was a conspiracy coordinated by the far-left Clinton founded Media Matters. The takeover of the media had been planned by radical-leftist and Clintonista, David Brock and adopted by the left’s most affluent donors in January 2017.
The plan, Democracy Matters Strategic Action Plan, details the strategy for undermining and ultimately destroying the Trump presidency specifically, and conservatism in general. And, the American political system as we know it.
For those who think it couldn’t happen here it already has. In 1876 technology catapulted Rutherford B. Hayes to the presidency when Western Union – the great communications giant of that day – did its best to assure that only positive news stories about Hayes appeared in newspapers nationwide.
Western Union had nowhere near the reach and influence at that time as Google, Facebook, Twitter, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, and the Washington Post possess today. That power to influence is compounded by their consistent repetition of the claims of each of the others to create an echo chamber that tends to increase the credibility of their reporting.
Similarly, their silence on important facts can absolve the corrupt or guilty of scrutiny. That is what led crusading investigative journalist Chuck Ross to tweet:
If you are a reporter covering Trump-Russia, especially the Trump Tower story, you are failing at your job if you do not report on Lanny Davis saying that CNN's "bombshell" was false. https://t.co/hDoB9O60nZ @dailycaller

When CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis; “So Michael Cohen does not have information that President Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians beforehand or even after,” he was not prepared for the answer that destroys special counsel Robert Mueller’s latest attempt to build a case against President Trump.
Davis, a longtime acolyte of the Clintons blew the lid off of CNN’s latest narrative to discredit President Trump when he answered: “No, he does not.”
Davis confirmed what Trump has said publicly; that he did not know about the meeting until a year after it occurred. This also validates Trump Jr. who told the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2017 that his father did not know about the meeting.
As significant as this development is, it is having little influence with the “get Trump” crowd because they are totally unaware of it.
Such is the power of the statist controlled mass media.
