With The Complete Collapse Of Media Trust These Recent MSM Stories Show They Are Still Trying Hard To See How Low They Can Go With ‘Woke’ Journalism

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

In just the latest judgement by the people about the media, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford published a recent report where we witness just the latest in a long line of failing marks for American media.

As the media in multiple parts of the world are more “state run,” or political activism rather than legitimate news reporting, we find that trust in media in the U.S. is one of the lowest, coming in at 29% globally that trusts American journalism.

That means U.S. media is trusted less than any country in Northern Europe, Western Europe, Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific, Latin America and even Canada.

CBS reported Thursday that Kyle Rittenhouse “testified” that he “murdered two men at a Black Lives Matter protest last year.”

“Kyle Rittenhouse testified in his murder trial yesterday, breaking down in years as he told the jury he murdered two men at a Black Lives Matter protest last year in self-defense,” CBS Mornings tweeted.

Mashed Potato: Brian Stelter’s CNN Show Loses 72% Of Viewers In 2021


from ZeroHedge:

Ratings for Brian Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” have dropped off a cliff – as the CNN host has lost 72% of his viewers since hitting its highest level of the year on January 10.

Stelter, who just last week groveled at the feet of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki – asking how the media can better cover President Biden – has failed to attract at least one million viewers for 11 straight weeks, and averaged just 752,000 on Sunday, his smallest audience of the year.

Elite television news rescued by COVID

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

Yet another consequence of the fake pandemic is the propping up of that doddering old fool, elite television news.

The COVID story doesn’t need Walter Cronkite. It only needs wall to wall. From 5AM to midnight, pandemic updates (mixed now with riot coverage), and the network ratings get well. The ratings jump out of the dumpster and rumble on the studio set and do cartwheels.

I’ve written a number of articles about network television news. Here are excerpts—

New York Times Caught Peddling Fake News Of Children Hospitalized By COVID-19

from Great Game India:

The New York Times has been caught again peddling fake news of children being hospitalized by COVID-19.

In an article published by New York Times reporter Apoorva Mandavilli on Wednesday, Times readers were told that “nearly 900,000 children have been hospitalized with COVID-19 since the pandemic began.”

Project Veritas: 1,000 Google Employees Signed Internal Anti-Breitbart Petition

by Alana Mastrangelo, Breitbart:

An internal Google petition “to end Google’s business with Breitbart” was recently leaked to Project Veritas. The petition — which over 1,000 Google employees have signed — calls for labeling Breitbart News as “prohibited content” to block the news outlet from “all Google-served ads.”

A Google insider says that a petition has been circulated among Google employees, calling on banning Breitbart News from Google’s advertising networks, in order to cut off the news platform from ad revenue, according to a recent report by Project Veritas.

What If the Media Had Told the Truth? Five MSM Lies for Which Trump Has Been Vindicated, and the Damage They Caused

by PF Whalen, The Blue State Conservative:

Remember that time when the mainstream media lied about former President Donald J. Trump, only to have Trump proven correct afterwards? “Can you be more specific,” you ask? Good point. There are so many to mention, we need to be more precise, so let’s narrow the list down to five, and let’s consider the true impact of their dishonesty. While the media may have been successful in sustaining political damage against Trump, the Republican Party, and the conservative movement – which was their ultimate goal, no doubt – they also caused significant collateral damage, either unwittingly or uncaringly.

‘THE SMOKING GUN’: Google Manipulated YouTube Search Results for Abortion, Maxine Waters, David Hogg

by Allum Bokhari, Breitbart:

In sworn testimony, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told Congress last month that his company does not “manually intervene” on any particular search result. Yet an internal discussion thread leaked to Breitbart News reveals Google regularly intervenes in search results on its YouTube video platform – including a recent intervention that pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for “abortion.”

The term “abortion” was added to a “blacklist” file for “controversial YouTube queries,” which contains a list of search terms that the company considers sensitive. According to the leak, these include some of these search terms related to: abortion, abortions, the Irish abortion referendum, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and anti-gun activist David Hogg.

I Know Who the “Senior Official” Is Who Wrote the NY Times Op-Ed

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

I know who wrote the anonymous “senior Trump official” op-ed in the New York Times. The New York Times wrote it.

The op-ed (http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50194.htm) is an obvious forgery. As a former senior official in a presidential administration, I can state with certainty that no senior official would express disagreement anonymously. Anonymous dissent has no credibility. Moreover, the dishonor of it undermines the character of the writer. A real dissenter would use his reputation and the status of his high position to lend weight to his dissent.

Pres. Trump: “The Media Is What’s Fueling” Violence Across America

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

President Donald Trump on Tuesday called out the press for “fueling” the violence and rioting in cities across America and blasted them for refusing to cover the “targeted” killing of Aaron “Jay” Danielson at a pro-Trump rally in Portland on Saturday night.



by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

“‘Extraordinarily dangerous’: Trump rally draws grave concerns from top health officials,” one headline read shortly after the network showed tens of thousands gathered in New York City’s Brooklyn borough for a Black Trans Lives Matter protest. NBC’s piece on the LGBTQ gathering and the “throngs in New York City” did not mention coronavirus health concerns. Instead, it highlighted “the dangers facing the Black transgender community.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter is worried that his media peers at NBC are giving President Trump a rhetorical cudgel with their selective concern over the spread of the coronavirus.
