Major Media Crash: They Need a Scapegoat

media-holywoodBy Jon Rappoport

They kept telling the American people Hillary Clinton was going to win the election; and in every way they could think of, they told the American people this was a good idea.

Then, on election night, they, the media, crashed.

The results came in.

The media went into deep shock.

As protests and riots then spread across America, the media neglected to mention a) they’d been bashing Trump because he said he might not accept the outcome of the vote, and b) here were large numbers of people on the Democrat side who weren’t accepting the outcome of the vote.

A new campaign had to be launched.

Suddenly, on cue, it was: Hillary Clinton lost because “fake news” about her had been spread around during the campaign.

Fake news sites. That was the reason.

These “fake sites” had to be punished. Somehow. They had to be defamed. Blocked. Censored.

Here is an excerpt from a list of “fake news” sites suggested by one professor. The list is circulating widely on the Web: Project Veritas; Infowars; Breitbart; Coast To Coast AM; Natural News; Zero Hedge; The Daily Sheeple; Activist Post; 21st Century Wire.

Free speech? Bill of Rights? Never heard of it.

Obama put in his two cents: “Because in an age where there’s so much active misinformation and it’s packaged very well and it looks the same when you see it on a Facebook page or you turn on your television…If everything seems to be the same and no distinctions are made, then we won’t know what to protect.”

Excuse me. “We won’t know what to protect?” Meaning what to favor, what to promote, what to lie about? Meaning only some speech is free?

Obama is way, way behind the curve. Thousands of websites and blogs have been exposing major media as fake for years. I started in 2001.

If Google, Facebook, and Twitter keep expanding their censorship of “disfavored messages,” they’re going to pay a price. More and more users will go elsewhere.

The facade of the major media is getting thinner. You can see a glow of rage and resentment behind it. They’re desperately looking for revenge on the millions and millions of people who are deserting them and laughing at them.

They presumed too much. They presumed they had us in the palm of their hand. We were their property. We were transfixed by their authority.

All that is going away. Bye, bye.

The big shift is accelerating. Independent media are in the ascendance. Understand that. Recognize it.

The impossible is happening.

How to Disappear Off the Grid Completely (Ad)

Fake news sites? Please. The major media are the biggest fakes the world has ever seen. Their anchors and star reporters are bloviating cranks. They’re dinner-theater actors.

Over the years, I’ve talked to some of them. I’ve warned them of their coming troubles. They were miles away from believing me. Now, they’re starting to sweat blood.

Major media news for America is still basically manufactured in New York and Washington—plus occasional outbursts from Hollywood creatures who bemoan the decline of inclusive liberalism, as they expand their gun-toting security staffs and dig deeper bunkers. The New York-Washington axis exists in a self-serving bubble, which has now taken serious punctures. The delusional attacks against “fake sites” underlines how out of touch these elites are with the rest of the country.

Independent media outlets are winning. They won’t be stopped.

When the people who now head the tech giants were growing up, they were heralding the Internet as a new era of free information-exchange. But now that they find themselves working with the government in the Surveillance State, they’re fronting for censorship. In fact, they’re showing they were never for freedom. That was a pose all along. They were, from the beginning, agents of repression. They can try to stop independent media now, but they will fail.

Fake web sites? What about fake companies? What about Google, Facebook, Twitter? Behind their happy-happy messages, they were built to propagandize, profile, and control.

Understand this: major media have a rock-bottom article of faith. It is: “We own the news.”

They can’t give it up. They’ll never give it up. It fuels everything they do. It’s the substance and core of their attitude.

As their ship goes down below the waves, they’ll be chanting it. “We own the news.”

But they don’t. In truth, they never did. For a time, they managed to sell that delusion to the people.

That time is drawing to a close.

The elite political class and their media minions fear more than independent news countering their own news. For obvious reasons, every civilization down through history has had its own monopolistic media, its central “broadcasting system.” Its controlled outlet. But now, The One has become Many.

That is the threat.

The rapid proliferation of The Many is an unpredictable X-factor.

The population is waking up to decentralized media. Instead of the hypnotic attachment to one basic information source—the habit of a lifetime—the public is learning to handle multiple sources. Therefore, the hypnotic spell is being broken and dissolved.

This is the basic problem for the elites.

How can they reinstate the trance?

By trying to censor the Internet? By creating a sudden war or other disaster, briefly “unifying” the country? These are not permanent solutions, particularly since more and more people understand such maneuvers and their true aims.

Awake is awake. Putting the genie back in the bottle—particularly when major media denizens aren’t very bright, as evidenced by their latest “fake news” scam—is on the order of trying to perform a piece of stage magic after the audience has already learned how it’s done.

Of course, the media clowns will try. And in the process, they’ll further expose themselves and actually assist in the awakening.

  1. Jon Rappoport hates censorship huh? In one of his articles several mos. ago pimping for Trump he refused to post a link I sent re: Trump’s friendship with convicted pedo friend Jeffry Epstein. I then sent another comment asking why he would not allow it. That one did not get posted either. That confirmed for me he is a gate keeper.

    • you are FREE to contribute that information to your favorite MSM outlets, which will welcome your information though they have blocked MY information many a times.

      at least you’re allowed to complain about this site/author. MSM don’t even allow anything seriously critical on their comment sections.

      the alternative outlets are not advocating a complete censorship of MSM, though. MSM want to obliterate the alternatives.

    • ….more like ego conceit on your part…”STOP the Press” …”I have some news he already knows about”(lol)…one voice of malcontent among hundreds of thousands that read his site everyday?
      …..So now he’s a ‘gate keeper’?!?….you truly do not know the man or his long history of a rare journalistic integrity corresponding with a truly ethical & moral compass…compared to the vacuous specious morons & obsequious sycophants that read the news off of the Rothschild owned news outlets such as Reuters 24/7 every mind numbing day.

    • Hillary, is that you?

    • To get anyone with integrity to post such a link you would have to provide some sort of impeccable source to verify your link to show it was not just an attachment from a Clinton sabotage unit. Huffington Post has also published even worse dispersion on Trump but considering some persons will say anything for money doesn’t make it so. Proof is what is needed and she said – he said won’t stand up in court. DNA samples and video footage with time and date stamp are good examples of strong evidence. Journalists who rely on their reputation as honest brokers to sell their wares must have good evidence for such destructive claims or lose their respectability. To preface such a link with “it has been reported but is unverified” is often called the cheap shot. Lesser allegations yes but the big stuff requires facts and evidence if one is not to get sued to the hilt and lose their reputation, which to some people is still important, just not the MSM.

    • Why am I not surprised that billionaires know each other? Trump went to Chelsea’s wedding, too — does that mean he’s “friends” with the Clintons? Everybody in the world knows someone who has done something unsavory, illegal, or downright evil. It doesn’t mean that they’re friends or that they knew of the others behavior at the time they were in their presence.

  2. Does his wrath include Google, Comcast, AOL, Yahoo, Earthlink, MSN, et al; with their “report-everything-as-spam” emplanted autoresponder ’emails’ as excuse to BLOCK news releases and commentaries under the guise “reported as spam” WITHOUT permitting the accused the right to face those accusers? !!! … About which neither the ‘courts/law enforcement’ (did I get enough contempt in that?) will do a damned thing!

    He’s as phony as a Kommrade Klinton …

    • that would be your unflinching OPINION ?…’lightening strikes’ “Yes Sir!..No Sir!…Three Bags full Sir! (lol)

    • You are referring to John Rappoport? You obviously have not read what he has written on these issues. Your much heated words are merely deceit.

      • Of course, I’m not referring to John Rappoport since Charlie McCarthy wrote the article … and I’d like for YOU to present ONE instance of him even mentioning Google (et al) deliberately and illegally BLOCKING news copy and commentary … I can give you THOUSANDS of them to prove they do just that!

        • Robert, I do apologize…. My problem is that I, with my myopic vision (from sleeplessness) never saw the reference to Charlie McCarthy. Scanning it again today… it eludes me… Probably my fault but I hope you can see where my error came from. If you have a link to the original article, I would appreciate you posting it. Sincerely, dr. rtw, forensic neuropsychologist, retired.

          • medicis … the article in question is THIS one, above; the author in question is John Rappoport …

            Just because someone poses as a journalist does NOT mean they are about the business of INFORMING the readership; and in John Rappoport’s case the CRIME OF DELIBERATE MISINFORMATION is clear!

            He is another SOCIALIST damned liar posing as some-degree of patriot: just like the MARXhu Akbar BASTARDS mentioned in my original comment.

          • ??? have no idea you…about what’s going on here???…methinks it’s a failure to communicate (lol)

  3. “We won’t know what to protect?” Mr. Obama-Soetero? You being a self-styled Constitutional law “professor,” how about we start with freedom of the press? How about if we protect that?

    We have the Clinton administration to thank for two major changes which have radically affected our world. Certainly our view of the goings-on in the White House were influenced by Monica Lewinsky’s change of clothing after a late night Oval Office session with Bill, and who could forget the change of ownership of White House dishes, silverware, and furniture after Hillary moved out with them. But the real legacy of the Clintons was a sea change which impacted first the US, then the entire world: the Telecommunications [Consolidation] Act of 1996, and repeal (1999) of the Glass-Steagall rules protecting bank customers from smiling speculators gambling with their savings.

    So first the stage was set for an increase in mass delusion, courtesy of the likes of Rupert Murdoch, Time Warner, Viacom, Disney, NBC and ABC, then the stage was set for the ’08 crash, which “no one saw coming” because the major owners, stockholders, and advertisers of the six remaining media outlets had no interest whatever in warning their unsuspecting viewers what they had in store for them.

    So who saw the crash coming and covered their assets in time? “Wingnuts” and “conspiracy buffs” who waste their time reading alternative news, instead of watching Cavuto and Kramer.

    Naturally the Bix Six aren’t going to trumpet the fact that our mainstream news is carefully airbrushed pablum so designed as to not piss off a relatively small handful of owners, executives, shareholders, and monolithic corporate advertisers who themselves control the government through lobbyists, political donations, and revolving-door employment policies.

    They stole our free press fair and square and, damn, if some upstarts haven’t gone and started up another one!

  4. Problem is, many of these so called ‘fake news sites’ have on many occasions sided with their corporate nemeses in regards to ‘islamic terrorist’ attacks which were later shown to be straight up hoaxes yet the headlines served their conservative narrative. They would rather say they were ‘false flags’ and not address what they really are: hoaxes with all the typical crisis actors. You might conclude that some alternative news sources are indeed fake: they are controlled opposition.

  5. Yeah, the MSM is shaking in fear because Trump knows how corrupt they truly are.
    Don’t just wait to see what he does as Pres. be sure to pressure him to make changes about

  6. The MSM has visibly been made near obsolete over that last decade. The internet has so many “alternative news” sites where people discover alternatives to the stories that they put out. Their strategy is layered. The idea is to make it seem like these popular “alt news” sites are their downfall, when in fact the main alt news sites are controlled opposition being used to detour the attention of the sheople.

  7. Just reading some of jon rap’s reports from this site. It would seem he is well intentioned.
    I’m sure it is difficult to be completely thorough in every article.
    One thing I am sure of, the MSM watching zombies do not know how to read.
    MSM is dead long live ALT.
