Trump, the NY Times, and fake news

—Major newspapers will, now and then, break big stories. But then they’ll walk away from them. The follow-up leads are obvious. But no. Those leads would result in some SERIOUS revelations about IMPORTANT PEOPLE. So forget it. It’s one and done—

We’re in the middle of an escalating information-war.

Trump and Sulzberger, the NY Times publisher, meet, talk, and then launch charges at each other. Sulzberger claims Trump’s attacks on MSM could result in violence against journalists.

Like him or hate him, Trump is threatening the media monopoly as no other modern president has.

Social media are shadow-banning and censoring voices perceived as pro-Trump.

I thought I’d boil a few things down and simplify them for AG Sulzberger, the 37-year-old publisher of the Times.

He and his paper are fake for several reasons—one is, they don’t follow up on their own best stories. It’s called continuing investigation—and they don’t do it. It’s their duty, and they are grossly derelict.

Two examples, both from the spring of 2015. On April 23, the Times ran a story under the headline: “Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal.” The piece made an excellent circumstantial case for Hillary and Bill as key players in a criminal scheme to sell 20% of US uranium to Putin.

But…no serious follow up. No deeper investigation. No pressure on the players. Just one and done.

Ditto for a 3/15/15 Times story, “Protection Without a Vaccine.” The article details a revolutionary candidate for next-generation vaccines—injecting synthesized genes into the body to “protect against disease”—and thereby permanently altering the vaccine recipient’s DNA.

The story is nothing less than a revelation about a plan—right out in the open—to do genetic engineering on billions of humans who get vaccinated. No speculation necessary.

And again, no follow up. No deeper digging. No pressure on the vaccine researchers and their funders.

Here is the same pattern, from the Times’ chief competitor, the Washington Post (9/4/13), “When the US looked the other way on chemical weapons”: “…The administrations of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush authorized the sale to Iraq of numerous items…including poisonous chemicals and deadly biological viruses, such as anthrax and bubonic plague…”

Mind-boggling. The US government, using a non-profit called the American Type Culture Collection and the US Centers for Disease Control (!), shipped dozens of biowarfare materials to Iraq in the 1980s.

No follow up. No further ongoing investigation. No laying open the corrupt CDC.

Here’s another Post story—October 15, 2017, “The Drug Industry’s Triumph Over the DEA”: “In April 2016, at the height of the deadliest drug epidemic in U.S. history, Congress effectively stripped the Drug Enforcement Administration of its most potent weapon against large drug companies suspected of spilling [trafficking] prescription [opioid] narcotics onto the nation’s streets.”

This piece is a blockbuster. It indicts virtually every member of Congress, and Obama, for passing a law hamstringing enforcement in the fight against the biggest opioid traffickers, pharmaceutical companies. But again, no ongoing digging. No pressure on members of Congress to repeal the 2016 law they passed, a law which keeps the DEA from busting Pharma executives and freezing illegal opioid shipments.

Here is where the Post could go with that story (but won’t) in an ongoing way:

“So, Senator, why haven’t you introduced a new bill to cancel the damaging one you helped pass in 2016? In your home state, the latest reports show there are at least 100,000 opioid addicts, 800 of whom have died. Don’t you want to let the DEA do its job? What are you waiting for?”

“This is outrageous. You’re accusing me of—“

“We’ve conducted a poll in your state. Your constituents want to know what you’re doing. So tell them…”

“I’m very active.”

“How? Exactly how are you active? Yesterday, we interviewed the mayor of your home town. He’s a Democrat like you. He says you’ve done nothing to stem the tide. We’ve put together a list of pharmaceutical money you’ve taken over the past ten years…”

This is why the Times and the Post and other similar mainstream outlets are fake.

Outrageously fake.

They have the resources and the reporters, but they don’t follow up on the most crucial stories they cover.

They refuse. They “move on.”

If they’ll comment at all on this glaring dereliction of duty, it’s: “Well, we already covered that.” “It’s old news.” “Our readers aren’t interested in that anymore.” “Mounting an ongoing investigation would cross the line into making the news instead of reporting on it.” Etc., etc.

All lies.

Mr. Sulzberger, who was handed the job publishing the NY Times by his family, should stop worrying about the Trump effect and just do journalism.

Of course he won’t, because he’s fake.

He has no intention of getting to the bottom of things in a way that would upset some very powerful apple carts.

He knows it, we know it.

And oh yes, one other thing, via Gateway Pundit: “NYT Publisher Complains to Trump About ‘Potential’ Violence Against Journalists – Ignores Over 500 Violent Attacks on Trump Supporters.” “There have been over 538 violent attacks against Trump supporters since the 2016 election season.”

Is Mr. Sulzberger interested?

    Well, I’m only speaking for myself, but this post reminds me why I no longer pay money for “fake news” such as the NYT. It is also why I pay attention to reporters like you. Thanks for your excellent reporting on stories that matter.

    “As a former journalist who covered the government ‘beat’, I can tell you reporters are instructed to take government officials’ statements verbatim without getting independent corroboration to check the facts. ‘Sycophants Only’ is the criteria for staying in the press rooms of state and federal capitols. A reporter who asks challenging questions or digs up dirt on the pin-striped miscreants will soon be escorted to the door, possibly beat up, and looking for another job… if they don’t get killed! Honest journalism no longer resides in the mainstream media. Better than 95% of all media is not bought and controlled by five or six big corporations simply for revenue, but for mind control, ‘statisticulation.'” – David McElroy March 7th, 2013 at 11:59 am

    At least Trump and Sulzberger can agree on the ethnic cleansing / genocide of Palestine.

  7. Reblogged this on John Barleycorn and commented:
    Trump will never get a break from the media.

    what i find interesting here with some independent media is -the pathology in moderation- (the fake middle ground) the virtue of the objective ? let me ask? if i want to quench my thirst should i compromise between getting a glass of water or a glass of vinegar ? this war on the MSM is the catalyst for implosion ..in just this one regard ..Trump is a Hero.the trail.may divert on the so called pure path of the so called enlightened political direction .but? IMO the the idea of a pure path is absurd ..my blood boils when i read articles by the media intelligentsia ..they are f-king morons in their basic premise.the (either/or) mindset still prevails ..the road to utopia is alive and well not only in the collective but even still in the mindset of the egomaniac individual .

    There may be something else going here. Aneuploidy, a condition of cells having abnormal amounts of genes, is well nigh universal in cancers. Injecting more genes into cells could be a Trojan horse to increase the rate of aneuploidy in the population, and thus increase the rate of cancer formation. I don’t know. Ask Dr. Peter Deusberg, he writes about aneuploidy and cancer.

    Injecting more genes, or foreign genes into cells looks like a very bad idea on multiple levels.

    Hey there Jon, the ‘official corruption’ permitted to flourish in America and killing the US economy, is organised by people who are told what to do, say, think, and feel, and they aint going to give a damn about the public. One of those people who are told what to do, is Rupert Murdoch, the murdering swine from OZ, who left a trail of dead bodies in Sydney when he moved to the US.
    We want him back, and will prosecute his arse off when we do get him back here.
    I personally guarantee it.
    The US, and that means ALL of the US, by harboring such a criminal, are complicit in his crimes, OK?
