We will NEVER have a better example of CRONY JOURNALISM than Spygate and the Mueller Hoax Prosecution. The Fake News media was involved in every step of the way, and even got WORTHLESS Pulitzers – WHOOPS, I MEAN NOBLE PRIZES – in PHONY REWARD for their political subservience.
The utter SAVAGERY of Trump’s attack on FAKE NEWS is evidenced by the fact that almost NONE of the journalistic coverage admits this is cunning and devastating sarcasm. Most claim – with a straight face – that “Trump later claimed it was sarcasm”.
Just do a search on “Trump Twitter Noble Prizes” and look at the utterly Stepford, straight-faced pretense that Trump didn’t know what he was talking about when he absolutely KNIFED the credibility of the phony crony Democrat press.
Total “Mamet Principle”.
Back to the story at hand.
I sometimes need to use the word “crony capitalists” to indict cronies who are brought into a crony relationship with people in power – ironically often communists like Obama – precisely because they ARE capitalists who control some means of production, or more often COMMUNICATION. Interestingly, if the crony capitalists are media companies, then they will have – quite literally – CRONY JOURNALISTS in their employ.
Obama, who nearly turned this country into The United States of Chicago, was a MASTER of cronyism. Spygate and The Hoax all employed crony journalists, and relied upon them to go far beyond the normal cronyism of picking a side – they were used to DEPLOY CRIMINAL LIES AND SLANDER for political effect.
Yahoo, Isikoff, Maggie Haberman, David Korn – ALL are fully exposed as CRONY JOURNALISTS.
But wait, there’s more.
Just go online and look at some of the pictures of these urban rubes. DUPES. Young and stupid, and utterly usable, just like I was when I was that age.
Watergate could not have taken down CIA/FBI-set-up-and-betrayed dupe Richard Nixon without two young, dumb, and future-proven (when they ignored Obama) CRONY JOURNALISTS named Woodward and Bernstein.
Woodward and Bernstein were the “back then” analogs of Haberman and Isikoff today.
Today’s discussion of cronyism began HERE:
…..where I argued FOR accurate usage of the term “crony capitalists” when capitalists ARE in fact brought into a crony relationship.
Wheatie, understandably, hates the term, which is always selectively and over-indictingly applied to CAPITALISTS ONLY.
I get that. And it BUGGED ME.
Well, I decided that this bit of language – this INSINUATION BY ABSENCE – needs an ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT.
Wheatie, Bfly, and Duchess all love the term, and want it to go big, and I agree. The problem is active suppression. “They” will fight it.
Well, one way to start getting it out there is to make it a TITLE here. It’s a WORDPRESS TRICK.
And THERE WE ARE.
Use it or lose it.
