Corporate media is synonymous with propaganda

The corporate media is just another word for propaganda and disinformation. This truism was neatly and ironically underlined by the Wall Street Journal. The Journal published an article about those pesky Russian propagandists, the Russian state funded media, criticising them for characterising the Trump White House as being chaotic.

 

Apparently, the Wall Street Journal was completely unaware that Americans were reading and listening to exactly the same judgement from the US corporate media. The New York Times has carried stories about White House chaos. The Washington Post has beaten the same drum. CNN regularly characterises the White House as being in chaos. The so called comedy shows have made White House chaos a staple theme of their entertainment. The Wall Street Journal has itself characterised the White House as chaotic. Indeed, whilst it was denouncing the pesky Russians for propagandising about chaos in the White House, it was wondering if the appointment of General Kelly as Chief of Staff could bring order to the chaos.

 

One has to wonder if corporate journalists even read their own stuff. Or know anything. Or can remember anything.

 

CNN's Jim Acosta is a typical representative of this Orwellian set of history re-writers, who neither know nor care about little things like accuracy. He demonstrated to the world that he does not know anything about immigration law and responded to being educated by proudly proclaiming he has not been re-educated. Apparently, he is beyond shame and proudly proclaims he is ignorant and determined to remain ignorant and determined to push his ignorance upon others. This is what it takes to be a corporate journalist. We would all be better informed if journalists were selected by lottery.

    No. We would all be better informed by using the alternative media (alt-media) and not the lousy PC mass media (corporate media, MSM)!
    When are you going to finally figure this out!?

    Jefferson had a very odd relationship with the press, he said he’d rather there be a free press than a government & he said a day without reading the paper probably leaves you better informed than reading the paper all day. Neither is an accurate quote, but they get the sentiment across.

      There was a similarly paradoxical finding from a recent study. It found that people who paid no attention to the news were better informed than Fox News viewers.

        It occurs to me I shall be told this is false, so here’s a link:
