Legacy Media in Terminal Decline

Media moles and moguls love fiction. They tell it every day, but when selling it as ‘news’ rather than fairy tales, remember what happens.

Their noses don’t grow longer like in the children’s story about the puppet (hmmm…but that’s a good analogy), well except for Rachel Maddow—she’s getting a beak from Hell these days after 2 years of her Trump/Russia Hoax, isn’t she?

Wow! That would make it easier to spot MSM Reporters. Better than a press pass!

But it’s actually more like Aesop’s Fable about the little boy who cried “Wolf” when there wasn’t one. When a real wolf came along—nobody believed him and the little liar got his lunch eaten as a result.

And that is what is happening to CNN, MSNBC, CBS and ABC or as journalist, John Nolte wrote jokingly about their tanking ratings and layoffs:

As part of the normal course of business,” we wiped out almost an entire news division because things are going so well at CNN, so swimmingly, we are able to enjoy things that qualify as the normal course of business, such as the mass layoffs we told you two weeks ago would never happen. Lies, doublespeak, slow-walking an inconvenient truth, Friday afternoon news dumps… In every way imaginable, CNN is a political operation.

CNN Ratings Tank 34% in One Month

CNN is dying. Not fast enough, but people are tired of hearing “Wolf” when it’s their own stray goat. 

And they’ve lied about or gotten every major news story wrong for the past six years since Jeff Zucker took over.

From calling Hispanic George Zimmerman ‘The White Racist Killer’ (and not retracting it) to “Trump Can’t Win” for all of 2016; to knowingly promoting false narratives against SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh saying he was a rapist; to the peaceful Covington, KY teenager attacked by anti-Trump thugs at a rally for  wearing a pro-trump hat (CNN is now being sued for $275 million for their knowingly false reporting on that).

The whole thing culminated in death-by-slobber over their favourite bone—two whole years of the fake Trump Russia Hoax.

Oh well, hard come, easy go. Thanks, CNN. I’m off to The Pickering Post to get me news, mates.

Real Collusion Between the Press and the Democrats

The Russian Hoax was found to be a complete fabrication invented by Obama officials in an attempted coup of President Trump, so CNN is now running on fumes. Daytime ratings are down 34% from just a year ago, and night-time prime time viewers are down 26%.

From being top dog, “CNN was only able to attract an average of 693,000 prime time viewers throughout all of last week.” Re-runs of The Muppet Show do better.

That’s why the layoffs. The Mother Ship is getting tired of buying Brian Seltzer’s doughnuts when he and the other idiots are not bringing in the dough.

According to Rev Content, “In the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, CNN lost a breathtaking 43 percent of prime-time viewers and an astonishing 47 percent of total day viewers.”

And here’s why they lie.  Gina Shakespeare at Epoch Times breaks it down in detail (and is fun to watch), but in short, Ron Fournier at The Associated Press started something he called, “Accountability Journalism” back in 2008, and like most bad ideas, the Leftist in Media jumped on it like white on rice.

Journalists Who Couldn’t Lie Straight in Bed

Fournier proposed that it was no longer journalism’s job to tell the truth or be objective, but to use any tools necessary to reprogram us hairy unwashed deplorables into dependable progressive sheep. This crap is now taught as ‘journalism’ today, while actually being its antithesis.

So that’s another lesson in market economics.  When you sell ‘news’ and deliver ‘lies’ you can’t stay in business forever.

It’s like a bar selling beer and pouring you cold pee instead. It might take a gulp or two to figure it out, but once you get what’s going on it leaves a bad taste in the customer’s mouth.

The only thing keeping CNN and the gang of six alive is the fact that almost all cable packages have them on it whether you watch or not. 

Even that won’t last forever when nobody is watching.  No viewers, no advertisers—no business.

In 1967, the CIA Created the Label “Conspiracy Theorists” … to Attack Anyone Who Challenges the “Official” Narrative . Specifically, in April 1967, the CIA wrote a dispatch which coined the term “conspiracy theories” … and recommended methods for discrediting such theories.

Climate emergency, head for the hills.

Melbourne endured its coldest May day in 19 years on Wednesday.

The temperature at Melbourne’s Olympic Park weather station had only reached a top of 10.6 degrees by 4pm on Wednesday.

If this maximum temperature isn’t exceeded by 9am on Thursday, this will have been the city’s coldest May day since 2000.

THE ORIGIN OF COMMUNISM.

Communism has but one purpose : to destroy everything in it’s path.

It exists for no other purpose.

It was actually devised by satanic forces .. certain extremely evil people working for these same forces brought it into this world.

One estimation is that Communism has been responsible for 100,000,000 deaths.

All Political Correctness, all Leftism, all Socialism .. is in fact Communism (these are different forms of Communism).

The Victorian Labour government might just have exposed its Achille Heel. Shorten complained that Andrews cost Labour the 2016 election by his decimation of type CFA and handing it over to the UFU. Time committed the memory of this to the back burner by the time the last state election occurred but Andrews has done it again but even worse this time. He is presenting legislation that will hand the entire fire fighting force in Victoria over to the UFU. The CFA will become an entirely volunteer organisation. The next step after that will be to deprive the CFA of… Read more »

UNSINKABLE MEDIA : Well that’s not true.The sowing and reaping principle applies in all aspects of life.If you tell lies then there are consequences somewhere.If not now then later.The media have a duty to always tell the truth and report the facts.Liars and cheats do not prosper.A bit like the Hollywood stars, they are bright for a while until they become a shooting star and fade away to nothing.

The left who follow the Communist line do so because they are the result of generations of infiltration by the Marxists. This infiltration has destroyed moral values, and it is noticeable how the four or five resident lefties on this site support same sex marriage and abortion.

CONCERNING THE ELECTION. Prior to the election I looked into Scott Morrison on a deep spiritual level. I did not look at him in a conventional way but in a much deeper way. I faithfully reported a deeper vision of this man for those who may be interested. The truth is he is not, as God created him, a leader. This is a reality and is immutable. He is a man with good energy, this has not been the case with a number of Prime Ministers in recent times, without mentioning names. He is a man with a mental deficiency… Read more »

Joe Biden Asks For 10-Year-Old Girl’s Address, Tells Her She’s “Good Looking”

Creepy Uncle Joe back up to his old tricks.

The incident occurred when Biden responded to a question from the child during an American Federation of Teachers Town Hall in Houston.

“If you give me (your) address, I’m gonna write you a longer answer and tell you the exact things I would do, OK?” said Biden before adding, “I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking.”

All the Abbott fans on PP take note and you will not like this. Morrison at the gathering of his new Cabinet said something you people would find strange especially BK our resident Engineer. Morrison said to his new Cabinet “our job now is to deliver on our pre election promises”. Time will tell if he is a man of his word or an Abbott.
