The elite news anchor is the eunuch: trusted everywhere

The elite news anchor is the eunuch: trusted everywhere

by Jon Rappoport

February 28, 2017

“Millions of people have become little news broadcasters and anchors, relaying pictures and text about their parties, picnics, family gatherings, updating their breaking stories, narrating the story lines of their lives. All they need for a complete imitation of the networks is sponsors.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

It’s not only the content of news that is embraced, it’s the style, the manner of presentation—and in the long run, the presentation is far more corrosive, far more deadly than the content.

The imitations of life called anchors are the arbiters of style. How they speak, how they look, how they themselves experience emotion—all this is planted deep in the brains of the viewers.

Most of America can’t imagine the evening news could look and sound any other way.

That’s how solid the long-term brainwashing is.

The elite anchors, from John Daly, in the early days of television, all the way to Brian Williams (until he was exposed) and Scott Pelley, have set the tone. They define the genre.

The elite anchor is not a person filled with passion or curiosity. Therefore, the audience doesn’t have to be passionate or filled with curiosity, either.

The anchor is not a demanding voice on the air; therefore, the audience doesn’t have to be demanding.

The anchor isn’t hell-bent on uncovering the truth. For this he substitutes a false dignity. Therefore, the audience can surrender its need to wrestle with the truth and replace that with a false dignity of its own.

The anchor takes propriety to an extreme: it’s unmannerly to look below the surface of things. Therefore, the audience adopts those manners.

The anchor inserts an actor’s style into what should instead be a relentless reporter’s forward motion. Therefore, members of the audience can become actors shaping “news” about their own lives through Facebook.

The anchor taps into, and mimics, that part of the audience’s psyche that wants smooth delivery of superficial cause and effect.

From their perch, the elite television anchors can deign to allow a trickle of sympathy here, a slice of compassion there.

But they let the audience know that objectivity is their central mission. “We have to get the story right. You can rely on us for that.”

This is the great propaganda arch of national network news. “These facts are what’s really happening and we’re giving them to you.” The networks spend untold billions to convey that false assurance.

The elite anchor must pretend to believe the narrow parameters and boundaries of a story are all there is. There is no deeper meaning. There is no abyss waiting to swallow whole a major story and reveal it as a hoax. No. Never.

With this conviction in tow, the anchor can fiddle and diddle with details.

The network anchor is the wizard of Is. He keeps explaining what is. “Here’s something that is, and then over here we have something else that is, and now, just in, a new thing that is.” He lays down miles of “is-concrete” to pave over deeper, uncomfortable, unimaginable truth.

The anchor is quite satisfied to obtain all his information from “reputable sources.” This mainly means government and corporate spokespeople. Not a problem.

Every other source, for the anchor, is murky and unreliable. He doesn’t have to worry his pretty little head about whether his sources are, indeed, trustworthy. He calculates it this way: if government and corporations are releasing information, it means there is news to report.

What the FBI director has to say is news whether it’s true or false, because the director said it. So why not blur over the mile-wide distinction between “he spoke the truth” and “he spoke”?

On air, the anchor is neutral, a castratus, a eunuch.

This is a time-honored ancient tradition. The eunuch, by his diminished condition, has the trust of the ruler. He guards the emperor’s inner sanctum. He acts as a buffer between his master and the people. He applies the royal seal to official documents.

Essentially, the anchor is saying, “See, I’m ascetic in the service of truth. Why would I hamstring myself this way unless my mission is sincere objectivity?”

All expressed shades of emotion occur and are managed within that persona of the dependable court eunuch. The anchor who can move the closest to the line of being human without actually arriving there is the champion. These days, it’s Brian Williams—or it was, until his “conflations” and “misremembrances” surfaced.

The vibrating string between eunuch and human is the frequency that makes an anchor “great.” Think Cronkite, Chet Huntley, Edward R Murrow. Huntley was just a touch too masculine, so they teamed him up with David Brinkley, a medium-boiled egg. Brinkley supplied twinkles of comic relief.

The cable news networks don’t really have anyone who qualifies as an elite anchor. Wolf Blitzer of CNN made his bones during the first Iraq war only because his name fit the bombing action so well. Brit Hume of FOX has more anchor authority than anyone now working in network television, but he’s semi-retired, content to play the role of contributor, because he knows the news is a scam on wheels.

There are other reasons for “voice-neutrality” of the anchor. Neutrality conveys a sense of science. “We did the experiment in the lab and this is how it turned out.”

Neutrality implies: this is a democracy; an anchor is no more important than the next person (and yet he is—another contradiction, swallowed).

Neutrality implies: we, the news division, don’t have to make money (a lie); we’re not like the cop shows; we’re on a higher plane; we’re performing a public service; we’re like a responsible charity.

The anchor is the answer to the age-old question about the people. Do the people really want to suck in superficial cause and effect and surface detail, or do they want deeper truth? Do the people want comfortable gigantic lies, or do they want to look behind the curtain?

The anchor, of course, goes for surface only.

The anchor is so accustomed to lying and so accustomed to pretending the lies are true that he wouldn’t know how to shift gears.

At the end of the Roman Empire, when the whole structure was coming apart, a brilliant and devious decision was made. The Empire would proceed according to a completely different plan. Instead of continuing to stretch its resources to the breaking point with military conquests, it would attack the mind.

It would establish the Roman Church and write new spiritual law. These laws and an overriding cosmology would be dispensed, in land after land, by official “eunuchs.” Men who, distanced from the usual human appetites, would automatically gain the trust of the people.

These priests would “deliver the news.” They would be the elite anchors, who would translate God’s orders and revelations to the public.

By edict, no one would be able to communicate with God, except through these “trusted ones.” Therefore, in a sense, the priest was actually higher on the ladder of power than God Himself.

In fact, it would fall to the new Church to reinterpret all of history, writing it as a series of symbolic clues that revealed and confirmed Church doctrine (story line).

Today, people are believers because the popular stories are delivered by contemporary castrati, every night on the evening news.

If these castrati say a virus is threatening the world; and if they are backed up by neutral castrati bishops, the medical scientists; and if those medical scientists are supported by public health bureaucrats, the cardinals; and if the cardinals are given a wink and a nod by the President, the Pope—the Program is working.

And the news is spread to the people…

But the true viruses are the anchors. They spread the illnesses of lies and omissions.

Through their style.

    Jon Rappaport, you write faster than I can read. You take ‘prolific’ to a whole new level! This isn’t to say that I don’t appreciate your efforts, but Jesus Christ, can’t you slow down?

  2. Tommy Tunes says:

    This needs Reporting because its just awful to our elderly !!!!!

    CNN must be feeling the Fake News label because I would have never thought they would report on this Atrocity !!!!

    A classic, Jon! The Anchors of ‘Fake’ are truly mentally a vacuum of sorts. As for the priests, the Church is fighting a fight from those within who want to destroy her. It has been infiltrated for decades … since the message of our Lady of Fatima has been ignored by three Popes. I wish you could get on that. You’d do a great job. If you don’t know anything about it here is a place to go: http://www.fatima.org A Pope could end all this but don’t count on Francis unless he has a massive coversion by some miracle. A simple request to “Consecrate Russia to my Immaculate Heart” in union with all the Bishops of the world. Of course there would be very few now. The time of times is upon us. The wolf in sheeps clothing is at the door.
    Why question such a simple request? It’s worth a try even if you don’t really believe it, isn’t it?

    Just heard you on Coast to Coast which lead me to your blog. Thank you! This is truly great writing and I’ve connected the dots in my head which I suspected were there, but didn’t have the knowledge that you have to put it all together. Thank you!

  5. Excellent. Dots connected beautifully. Well done!

    That’s a great comparison and deserves a lot more thought, the nightly news vs. people reporting their lives on facebook. All about trying to mold opinion…….in the case of facebook, people creating the story line of their lives, trying to convince the reader they are living a great life and that they are cool/fun/interesting people. All of it done the same ways the news is produced.

  7. Caduceus says:

    “News”, from the word “new”, meaning all that is new. To report news is to reveal and state all that is new, which is all reporters are tasked to do objectively and truthfully, and in the distant past did. Instead reporters now, motivated by partisan personal, political, even perverted agendas, report their feelings and opinions about news, as news! Thus they creat news, a fake news, that doesn’t exist in reality, only in their partisan imagination. For the ignorant intellectually slothful consumers of this fake news, resistance is indeed futile. For the rest of us, the battle against this pompous elite media-borg continues.

    Through their style. The style of yes men. The style of liar. The style of artful deception. The wizard of is! Government and Corporations spokespeople as the only reliable source. Wow its so good to know that this stuff is figured out. What a great source nomorefakenews.com is.

  9. Oliver K. Manuel says:

    The more serious problem is deceit that the National Academy of Sciences disguises as “97% consensus science.”

  10. Carter Lee says:

    Dear Mr. Jon,
    You are a dear treasure. There is no one else with your brilliant and caring insights. It’s really quite impossible for most of us to quantify just how profoundly we need your shining guidance, as we for the most part we cannot ourselves appreciate it.
    Your perspective is keen and developed.
    Thank you on behalf of us all for swinging back through to pick us all up to go on the adventure of learning on your interstellar rocket freight. You are like Plato and many other great men.
    Jon The Great- that has a good ring to it. Thank you man.
    Cheers,
    Carter

    That’s why watching anchors screw up is so entertaining. A happened to catch a local anchor recently pronouncing Trump’s Treasury secretary as “Munchkin”. Reminded me of Ted Baxter on Mary Tyler Moore.

  12. Justan American says:

    And just like the Minstrels, Jesters and Jokers of old, today’s entertainment media fawn and swoon over a leader extolling his virtues to the masses until a ruler is crowned they don’t agree with and attempt to turn the masses against him.

  13. miguelhud says:

    Jon,
    I so appreciate the hot blade of your intellect, always able to cut straight through the strata of (choose your metaphor) to the essence of accepted deception. You are my Go To Guy when I am looking for clarity.
    Thanks for your relentless work.

  14. Aron says:

    But, but…our guy is different! He’s not lke the rest. He gets out there among the people. He talks about why investigative journalism matters. He shakes his fist at the telly for crying out loud! He must be giving us the straight goods. Right?

  15. Barryn says:

    I heard you on Coast to Coast last night and today did remember your website name. Thanks for your insite.

    […] reading your other articles, you are stating truth at a very recognizable level. As a professional magician for 40 + years… (specifically close-up) I have come to understand the depth of deception based, of course, upon the powers is suggestion. Every path is a deceptive path leading to a usually endless rabbit hole of even far greater misconception and deceit. Sad indeed, though I will continue to enjoy that I can entertain the already ever-so blind with deception realizing still (as I often expound to the fooled at hand). “The more intelligent you are, certainly, the MORE fooled you will be.” They often laugh off this statement believing I’m only trying to medicate the bruising their ego and accompanying pride has encountered. Little still do they realize the depth and greater truth to my statement if they’d only give greater attention to the cause verses the effect!!

    Thank you again for expressing so many elusive and yet purloined causes as we all try our best NOT to be fooled by the most often “Helgelian” effect.

    Magically,
    Barryn Vaughn Stroh

    I’ve wondered for decades if the news readers know what they are saying is not true or do they convince them self that the ‘facts’ that they were fed are true. If they were knowingly lying to the public, wouldn’t many people detect that? If they were telling the world things that they believe, but are not necessarily so, the audience might not be able to detect this. Does it matter if they are stupid or evil? Yeah, I think it does. Someone who gets some facts wrong might improve and be reliable for information in the future. Someone who is found to be lying to you can never regain your trust.

  17. Jon, correct about the Catholic Church. By fusing the Empire and Judaic-Christianity created the true “Priest King” (Pope). Those that ruled (from than on) were eternally protected by an “all powerful God” that “rejected all other idols” (competition).

    Anyway, how about this:

    “I judge the book by the cover”

    and

    “Keep It Simple, Stupid”

    Best
    OT

    Prolific writing from Rappaport, he nails hard hitting, smash them in the face truth, with diplomacy.
    The mans a class act.
    Journalists take note, this is the standard !
