Journalism in America is continuing to bury itself in a very deep grave, and it does not look like they will be coming out of it anytime soon. Here is what happens in MSNBC latest blunder.
News Anchor Mika Brzezinski who is well known to be an biased and hateful journalist towards President Trump said this, “Well, I think the dangerous edges here are that he’s trying to undermine the media, trying to make up his own facts, and it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he could control exactly what people think and that is our job.”
Last time I checked, controlling on what people think is not part of the job description of a journalist. In fact, this is so wrong on many levels because mainstream media is one of the causes of this gigantic divide of the United States. Mika Brzezinski should and must be held accountable for what she has said because words do matter, especially being a journalist.
Don’t get me wrong, I fully support the United States Constitution, including the freedom of the Press, but shouldn’t there be a limit on that? The press should not be manipulating the public to support their agenda whatever that may be, and a journalist shouldn’t have any agenda except for reporting facts and news. Since the election and the inauguration, most of the mainstream media and especially MSNBC has been reporting nothing but hate, lies and fake news against President Trump and his administration.
Silence is Consent reports:
While a panel of news anchors was discussing President Trump’s attack of the mainstream media, urging the American public to remain skeptical of the press, Brzezinski proclaimed that if the economy goes south, Americans may begin to trust Trump over them.
Mika Brzezinski: “Well, I think the dangerous edges here are that he’s trying to undermine the media, trying to make up his own facts, and it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging…”
Still think that MSM is “real news”? According to MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, it’s their job to control “exactly what people think,” too. Yes, that’s right—one of the most popular anchors at a major mainstream news conglomerate literally just said it’s the media’s job to control exactly what people think.
This is not a joke. You can see the full clip down below:
Mike Brzezinski: “…so much that he could control exactly what people think…and that is our job.”
And yet, somehow, people keep saying that Trump’s supporters are putting out fake news. They attack Breitbart, they attack Silence is Consent, they attack Info Wars, and they attack our movement.
Can people not see the hypocrisy of the MSM? They literally aren’t even trying to hide it anymore—Mika Brzezinski literally says that it’s “our job,” to “control exactly what people think.”
And via ZeroHedge:
During a lively discussion centered on fears that President Trump is “trying to undermine the media,” MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski let slip the awesome unspoken truth that the media’s “job” is to “actually control exactly what people think.
SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'”
BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
As Grabien points out, the comment failed to raise any eyebrows from her co-panelists. Instead, her co-host, Joe Scarborough, said that Trump’s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin…
As long as this kind of reporting continues journalism in America will lose credibility. I hope and pray that the “Powers that be” whomever they are will read this and agree that Mika Brzezinski should either apologize to the public or stand down. During times like these, it is vital that facts and truth are informing the public, not lies and hate. It is really sad because journalism at one time was a true honest profession, made up of people that cared about the public, now they are agenda driven and they wonder why President Trump calls them fake news.
