When the New York Times takes Republicans out of context and accuses them of antisemitism it's the height of journalism but when Breitbart takes Democrats out of context and accuses them of antisemitism it's an attack on the "free press."
From The New York Times, "Trump Allies Target Journalists Over Coverage Deemed Hostile to White House":
A loose network of conservative operatives allied with the White House is pursuing what they say will be an aggressive operation to discredit news organizations deemed hostile to President Trump by publicizing damaging information about journalists.How is this any different to what our media does every single day to lowly plebs just for sharing memes on social media? The only difference I can see is the media targets lowly "Beckys" rather than punch up.
A. G. Sulzberger, the publisher of The Times, said in a statement that such tactics were taking the president's campaign against a free press to a new level.That could just as easily be describing the SPLC and the ADL.
In a statement, a CNN spokesman said that when government officials, "and those working on their behalf, threaten and retaliate against reporters as a means of suppression, it's a clear abandonment of democracy for something very dangerous."CNN lobbied (successfully) to shut down Infowars.
The operation is targeting the news media by using one of the most effective weapons of political combat -- deep and laborious research into the public records of opponents to find contradictions, controversial opinions or toxic affiliations. The liberal group Media Matters for America helped pioneer close scrutiny of public statements by conservative media personalities.Literally all they do is use Twitter's search function to search through their targets' old tweets.
The conservative operative James O'Keefe has twisted that concept in ways inconsistent with traditional journalistic ethics, using false identities, elaborate cover stories and undercover videos to entrap journalists and publicize embarrassing statements, often in misleading ways, to undercut the credibility of what he considers news media biased in favor of liberals.What does it even matter?
You don't have to fire these people if you don't want to.
You're not going to lose any advertisers the way Tucker Carlson or those of us in the alt-media have and you're not going to face any repercussions.
When Sarah Jeong was exposed for sending out dozens of virulently racist anti-white tweets you said you didn't give a damn and knew about it before you hired her.
This is literally just empty whining to cultivate a much-cherished victim narrative. You're asking us to believe the most powerful media organization in the world is a powerless victim of some right-wing internet trolls.
The reality is the mainstream media and their allies in Big Tech are the biggest threats to the free press on the planet.
At the behest of our ruling oligarchs, Google algorithmically censored all independent media and artificially boosted sites like the New York Times on both YouTube and Google to the point where you can't even find any independent media at all with the overwhelming majority of Google/YouTube searches.
This is an unprecedented level of censorship far beyond any book burnings of the past and the New York Times is leading the charge demanding the censorship!
